McDonald's Restaurants has begun to welcome customers back into their restaurants as states open back up. With the reopening, they have new safety precautions in place to help protect employees and visitors.

“It was important to us to stay open through drive-thru, take-out, and delivery to serve our communities throughout the COVID-19 crisis. As local business owners, we’re proud to provide employment and educational opportunities to our crew and look forward to welcoming new employees to our McFamily this summer,” said D.W. Rause, McDonald’s Owner/Operator.

High school students and college students who accept a summer job at McDonald's could receive tuition help through the Archways to Opportunity program.

According to a press release from McDonald's, "Eligible after just 90 days and 15 hours a week, restaurant employees can earn a high school diploma and receive $2,500 in upfront college tuition assistance. Restaurant employees can also access free education and career advising services and the opportunity to learn English as a second language."
