McDonald's says it offers employees flexible scheduling and an app to view their schedule, update availability, request time away and post shifts for swapping or replacement.

"As local employers, we're proud to provide employment and educational opportunities to our crew members and look forward to welcoming new hires to our McFamily this summer," said Pat Powers, local McDonald's owner/operator.

More than 50 COVID-19 safety procedures remain in place including wellness and temperature checks, social distancing floor stickers, protective barriers and masks and gloves for employees.
