McDonald's will hire approximately 11,000 restaurant employees in Michigan this summer.
Employees will have 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 through the Archways to Opportunity program.
The program will also increase the amount of college tuition assistance available, lower eligibility requirements from nine months to 90 days of employment and drop weekly shift minimums from 20 hours to 15 hours.
Additionally, eligible crew will have access to $2,500 a year in tuition assistance and eligible managers will have access to $3,000 a year.
“Building a better McDonald’s means recognizing we can help employees pursue and achieve their goals, both at McDonald’s and beyond,” said Erika Schulz, McDonald’s owner/operator in Michigan.
“The changes in the Archways to Opportunity program mean that new employees who start in our restaurants this month could be eligible for tuition assistance and other Archways benefits by the time school starts again at the end of the season. That’s a big deal, and I’m very proud of the opportunity that this presents to current and prospective employees.”
