McDonald’s Franchisee Stuart Spicer said it was the first ever mass hiring day for the company in Victoria.

“We want to connect with people looking for a job and we want to fast-track that process,” he said.

“We hope it’s huge, we have 5000 jobs available across 260 restaurants and we hope that we are over-run with people.

“We are absolutely looking to hire and create opportunities for people.”

In five-minute interview, Spicer said managers will assess if the person is well equipped to work in the restaurant.

“We will see if the person would be a good fit here, it’s fast-paced and we are looking for energetic people,” he said.

“We are looking for someone who is looking for a fun, flexible environment, someone passionate about customer serve and food.”

Chris Karagounis is a managing partner of Melbourne recruitment and talent development firm, Alex Karr.

Karagounis said having McDonald’s on your resume was a massive plus to potential employers.

“McDonald’s is one of the best companies in the world and the training programs for young people is one of the best I have ever seen,” he said.

“That training as a young person becomes embedded behaviour that you can take in your career in the future.

“When young people are advancing through school and uni, having McDonald’s on your resume while your studying makes a difference on someone’s application.”

Karagounis said the blitz was a great initiative.

“McDonald’s is a pressure environment, the workers are on all day and that is a unique situation that gives you an advantage down the track,” he said.

“Any customer and retail facing job is fantastic experience.”

Applicants must be aged 15 years and over to be eligible, under-18s must have parental consent.

Vacant positions will cover a wide range of skills with everything from managers and service personnel to baristas and students wishing to work after school or on weekends.

Job seekers can walk into any stores across Victoria from 9am to 6pm this Saturday.
