As per reports, McDonald’s Corporation (MCD) is seeking to hire 2,400 people in Houston this fall, using the world’s first voice-initiated application process, “McDonald’s Apply Thru” in collaboration with Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant devices in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and other European countries. The process starts with applicants requesting Alexa for job vacancies in Mc Donald’s with a set of predefined statements and the request then transfers to “McDonald’s Apply Thru”, after which potential applicants receive a text message along with a link to further continue the process.
“We must continue to innovate and think of creative and, in this case, groundbreaking ways to meet potential job seekers on devices they are already using, like Alexa,” stated David Fairhurst, McDonald’s executive vice president and chief people officer.
McDonald’s Corporation (MCD) is the leading global foodservice retailer with nearly 37,000 locations in over 100 countries.
