McDonald’s Restaurants Expect To Hire 6,500 In Kentucky This Summer

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) – With summer around the corner, McDonald’s and its independent franchisees are gearing up in anticipation of hiring approximately 6,500 restaurant employees in the state of Kentucky to better serve customers this busy season.

This is good news for job seekers who are interested in pursuing an education while working since McDonald’s recently announced that it is allocating $150 million over five years to its global Archways to Opportunity education access program. The new investment increases the amount of college tuition assistance available, lowers eligibility requirements from nine months to 90 days of employment, and drops weekly shift minimums from 20 hours to 15 hours.

This investment will provide nearly 400,000 U.S. restaurant employees with an opportunity to earn a high school diploma, receive upfront tuition assistance for college courses, access academic advising courses and learn English as a second language.

Additionally, eligible crew members will have access to $2,500/year in tuition assistance (up from $700/year) and eligible managers will have access to $3,000/year (up from $1,050).

Job seekers can visit McDonalds.com/careers to learn more and apply.
