SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A story you may have seen claims one McDonald's is offering $50 to anyone who just comes in for an interview.
It's actually true. A McDonald's in Tampa, Florida is facing such severe staffing problems, it is indeed offering $50 to anyone who goes in for a job interview.
With lots of businesses reopening in the area, there simply aren't enough people to fill all the jobs.
However, the McDonald's owner says the $50 incentive isn't attracting many applicants. Blake Casper says referral programs, hiring bonuses, letting people apply via text and raising wages have proven much more effective.
