A World-First, McDonald’s Apply Thru™ helps you easily start your job application with your voice
I don’t know if I ever mentioned to you guys before but McDonald’s was my very first job when I was a teenager. I worked for my uncle’s restaurant at 15 yrs old in Cleveland, Ohio. He owned one of the very first McDonalds’s built in the city and it was a landmark. Lots of people would stop by for photo opts etc. We even wore the old fashioned uniforms, which I disliked lol. Now here we are in 2019 and things have changed so much.
McDonald’s Corporation is now working with a voice millions know and love. Alexa can now assist with the first step of a McDonald’s restaurant job application, helping drive talent attraction worldwide through the McDonald’s Apply Thru skill.
The world’s first voice-initiated application process, the McDonald’s Apply Thru is available today as part of the recently launched Made at McDonald’s global hiring campaign that seeks to drive applications worldwide.
Thanks to Alexa, starting a job application is as simple as saying, “Alexa, help me get a job at McDonald’s.”
You can also use any device with the Google Assistant built-in by saying, “Ok Google, talk to McDonald’s Apply Thru.” As the Apply Thru is further developed for the Google Assistant, the Action will be activated by simply saying, “Ok Google, help me get a job at McDonald’s.” The voice experience is available on Alexa and Google Assistant devices. Potential applicants will receive a short text message shortly thereafter with a link to continue their application process.
