While it continues to be a leader in foodservice innovation, the foodservice giant remains committed to boosting local employment and growing its restaurant manpower in 2019.

With this, we are bringing back ‘Go Hire Day’ which would make it more accessible for job-seekers to be part of our growth.

This year, McDonald’s Philippines eyes to reach a recruitment target of close to 20,000 service crew and manager trainees as it continues to grow its foothold in the Philippine market and elevate the customer experience with NXTGEN.
