LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — As states and communities continue to reopen their economies, McDonald's restaurants are expecting to hire approximately 260,000 restaurant employees this summer.
And this includes about 1,100 positions in the Las Vegas area, according to a company spokesperson.
McDonald's says it has implemented nearly 50 new safety procedures to protect crew and customers during the pandemic. These include wellness and temperature checks, social distancing floor stickers, protective barriers at order points, masks and gloves for employees with the addition of new procedures, and training for the opening of dining rooms.
Through a summer job at a McDonald's restaurant, individuals not only learn work readiness skills on the job, such as teamwork, customer service, and responsibility, they will also have the chance to further their education, according to a company spokesperson.

"It was important for us to stay open through the drive-thru, take-out, and delivery to serve our communities throughout the COVID-19 crisis. As local business owners, we're proud to provide employment and educational opportunities to our crew and look forward to welcoming new employees to our McFamily this summer," Bohn said.
