Would you risk losing your unemployment benefits for a foodservice or retail job?
Why do you think it's sooo hard to attract workers for these type of jobs?
Working at fast food establishments like McDonald’s or Burger King sometimes has a negative reputation attached to it. HOWEVER, what many people don't realize is that working in the QSI (quick-service industry) is actually a great way to build new and transferable skills, advance your career and earn some money!
It’s not just for teenagers
If you are out of work and looking for something to get you back on your feet, many QSI jobs are willing to train the right employee. It's also great if you are looking for part-time work as hours tend to be flexible! Depending on the company many offer health benefits to full-time employees as well as advancement programs.
Who has worked in the QSI
Many well-known individuals have attributed working in the QSI to help them gain the skills they needed later in life such as task management, organization, leadership, and social skills.
James Franco (who you may know from Spiderman among other films) was a struggling actor living in Los Angeles. He was fired from a coffee shop and golf course and couldn't find acting work. Franco said he began working in the drive-thru and practicing foreign accents on customers. It helped him to perfect his craft.
He said, "Someone asked me if I was too good to work at McDonald’s because I was following my acting dream despite all the pressure not to, I was definitely not too good to work at McDonald’s."
The QSI may be the perfect fit for you too!

I love watching videos of people showcasing how things get done at their job on TikTok and YouTube. We've been seeing a lot of questions about jobs at McDonald's and I found this one on how my goto order there is made (2 Cheeseburgers, Coke (miss my Hi-C Orange), fries and side of Sweet & Sour). What other on the job videos would you like to see either at Mickey D's or other locations? #mcdonalds #jobsearch
