Florida McDonald's offers free chicken sandwich to show up for interview

McDonald's restaurants across Central Florida are looking to hire nearly 4,000 employees this summer – and they hope a chicken sandwich will bring in applicants. 

The company says it plans to reopen its dining rooms in the coming months and they need more staff members as many businesses struggle to find workers.

"We are a people business at our core, and as we welcome customers back into our dining rooms, the safety of our employees and customers is a top priority, as it has been throughout our 66-year history."

As a McDonald’s employee, the company says you will develop teamwork, customer service, responsibility and time management skills. But wait, there's more!
