McDonald’s and its franchisees expect to hire about 10,650 workers at its roughly 1,000 Pennsylvania restaurants for the summer season.

That includes 450 new hires in Allegheny County, according to the company.

Job seekers can visit McDonalds.com/careers to learn more and to apply to a restaurant near them.

In addition, McDonald’s is partnering with AARP to post its U.S. restaurant job openings on the latter organization’s job board, which is for employers who are “committed to an age-diverse workforce and looking for experienced talent.”

McDonald’s USA said it also will work with the AARP Foundation on a pilot program that “aligns employer and candidate job needs and interests” through the foundation’s Senior Community Service Employment Program and BACK TO WORK 50+ workforce development programs. The pilot will start in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and North Carolina before rolling out nationwide in the summer.

McDonald’s reported it has provided more than $3.1 million in tuition assistance and supported 1,469 restaurant workers in Pennsylvania through the company’s Archways to Opportunity program — for eligible employees who have worked for at least 90 days and 15 hours a week.

McDonald’s realized net income of about $5.9 billion last year, up from just under $5.2 billion in 2017, according to its 2018 annual report. The company added 614 restaurants in 2018, for a year-end total of 37,855.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
