McDonald's of Hawaii partners with U.S. Army

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Veterans now have a new tool to help them find work once they're out of the military.  A new agreement between McDonald's of Hawaii and the Army's Partnership for Youth Success Program gives young vets a better chance at gaining employment at the restaurant chain.  Many of them often have trouble landing a job after leaving the service.  The hands-on program gives recipients mentoring opportunities, as well as a chance to build a strong resume when looking for work.  McDonald's of Hawaii says it is proud to support vets and their families.  "We're excited about this U.S. Army PaYS partnership because it gives McDonald's access to some great, well-trained, highly skilled leaders.  When I sat down with the Commander Kerschner, we talked about this program, it was obvious this was a win-win-win for all of us", said McDonald's of Hawaii Human Resources Manager Paulette Wage.  "The United States soldier, whenever they leave the Army, they are trained, disciplined, educated, smart, and definitely have drive, and definitely have developed those leadership abilities that I hope will extend into your family, the McFamily", said Major Logan Kerschner of the Honolulu Army Recruiting Battalion.  There are more than a hundred businesses around the country that have partnered with the Army.
