McDonald’s partners with Amazon’s Alexa to make it easier to apply for a job

News

You don’t have to spend countless hours online applying for a job at McDonalds.

The franchise is partnering with Amazon’s Alexa to help make landing a position a little bit easier.

To apply for a job all you have to do is say something like “Alexa help me get a job at McDonalds restaurant.”

Alexa will then ask a few personal questions.

This includes their name — job area of interest and location.

Applicants will receive a response on what McDonald’s positions are available in their area and a text link to an official application online.

Although Alexa doesn’t complete the full application it helps get the process started.
