If you’ve always wanted to work at McDonald’s, you may have thought the common next step would be to apply online or drop off an application at your closest location. However, for one day only, there will be another way for potential McDonald’s employees to apply.
On March 27, 2019, those who want to apply can do so using the popular social media app, Snapchat.
This application process has been named ‘Snapplications’.
“On March 27th, Snapchat users will find a unique lens that enables them to film a 30-second video capturing why they want to work for McDonald’s that can be submitted to the McDonald’s Canada hiring portal,” reads a McDonald’s Canada press release.

The goal of this application process is to provide a convenient application process that will attract more young people.
“We wanted to offer a convenient and flexible application process to attract more young people through our one-day virtual hiring event,” Stephanie Hardman, Chief People Officer at McDonald’s Canada, said in the release. “From youth applying for their first jobs, to experienced candidates, Snapplications is a new and exciting way for people to kick-start a career at McDonald’s Canada.”
McDonald’s is the first brand in Canada to launch this application process. However, the brand isn’t just stopping here.
Later this month, according to the release, McDonald’s will also be launching a first-in-Canada partnership with Google Voice. With this partnership, Canadians will be able to discover local offers available at McDonald’s (in the MyMcD’s app) by asking their Google voice-activated devices.
