McDonald's can meet you wherever you are on your education journey. Whether you're looking to finish your high school diploma, master English language skills, or earn your college degree, McDonald's and its franchisees can help you plan for success with restaurant employee education programs.
Most McDonald’s restaurants are operated by independent franchisees who are independent employers, and set their own employment policies and practices, including pay and benefits for the people working in their restaurants. McDonald's does not control the independent franchisees’ employment policies and practices and does not employ those working at franchised restaurants. The benefits described here are available at McDonald’s-owned restaurants and the restaurants of participating franchisees. McDonald’s and McDonald’s independently owned and operated franchisees are equal opportunity employers committed to a diverse and inclusive workforce.
