A Kansas City-area McDonald’s franchiser is using a unique way of attracting prospective employees, relying on individual Facebook and Twitter posts, both by the company and by employees. Each restaurant also uses its own McDonald’s website, “but Facebook is probably the best response,” says franchiser Ty Yano, with current employees being “the best advertisement” for recruiting friends and others. Rather than wailing about the ubiquity of cellphones and earbuds, Yano and another Kansas City-area fast-food employer are using smartphones to their hiring and training advantage. Others can use their playbook for success dealing with young workers.
