Restaurant Management Positions

Guelph is growing and so is McDonald's. We are actively looking for individuals to join our Career management team as Department Managers and Restaurant Leaders (i.e. General Managers). We are also looking for Shift Managers who want to use their previous restaurant leadership skills in an hourly paid position, on a part-time or full-time basis. While previous experience working in food service or retail as a barista, server, sales associate, cashier, team member, or customer sales representative as a manager is always helpful and appreciated, what is most important is who you are.

  • A total rewards package that includes discounts, incentives, and recognition perks
  • Flexible hours/shifts that suit your needs
  • A safe, respectful and inclusive workplace
  • Bring your authentic self to work - welcoming people of every age, background, and culture - just like the guests who visit our restaurants every day

While a competitive salary is a great starting point - our career team in Guelph also enjoys the following perks:

  • Paid sick days or year end wellness payout
  • Quarterly bonus eligibility
  • Monthly cell and car allowance
  • RRSP matching program
  • Health and Dental coverage contributions
  • Fitness reimbursements

  • 50% off family meals
  • Ontario Colleges partnership

Shift Management positions also offer a lot of the above perks and we can discuss the specifics during the interview.

The job

We are sure that you have an idea about what working with us is like, but just in case here are some of the highlights on what your job will entail:

  • Inspiring a team, instilling a sense of pride, and creating a culture that helps deliver the world’s best Quick Service Restaurant experience
  • Maintaining a safe, secure, and sanitary environment for your guests, your team, and yourself
  • Managing and leading a team of Managers and Crew Members
  • Participating in local events that positively impact your community 
  • Upholding our renowned cleanliness methodology
  • Building sales and profits, which in turn build your value, professionally and financially. 

Your vibe and experience

You lead by example and are accountable. You have high expectations and consistently raise the bar for yourself and your team.

You put people before profit, knowing that creating a positive culture leads to happier, more engaged staff who will deliver a better experience for your guests.
