    • 3 Weeks' Vacation
    • Three weeks’ vacation, plus a “splash” week every year ending in 5, holidays, paid sick and personal time, leaves of absence, and flexible work arrangements give you the flexibility to take the time you need to look after your life outside of work.
    • Summer Hours
    • We want you to enjoy your summer. In the summer months, McDonald’s offices follow a compressed work week in order to end early on Fridays.
    • Sabbatical Programs
    • Eligible employees can take an eight-week paid sabbatical for every 10 years of full-time continuous service with the company.
    • Dress For Your Day
    • We want you to feel your most productive and creative self at work and we understand that in order to do that, being a little more comfortable with what you’re wearing to the office is a must.
    • Recognition Programs
    • Recognition programs are an important way that McDonald’s recognizes you for your contributions. The programs recognize either your specific accomplishments through team or individual awards, or your ongoing contributions through service awards.
    • Medical
    • At McDonald’s, we know how important it is to have programs that support you and your family’s health and that help protect you from financial hardship in the event of serious illness, injury, or death. That’s why we offer a range of benefits and allow you to choose the programs that are right for you.
    • Dental
    • Dental health is an important part of your overall health. That’s why McDonald’s offers you a comprehensive dental plan with a focus on preventative care benefits.
    • Vision
    • Vision health is an important part of your overall health. That's why McDonald's offers a vision plan that helps cover the cost of eye exams and materials such as eye glasses or contact lenses.
    • Life Insurance
    • Though no one likes to think about serious illness, injury, or death, it’s important to have financial coverage in case the unthinkable happens. McDonald’s provides basic life, dependent life, accidental death, and dismemberment (AD&D), and business travel accident insurance at no cost to you. These insurance benefits help protect your family’s financial security in case of your death or serious injury.
    • 401k
    • McDonald's 401k lets you save on a tax-deferred basis for your future. For eligible employees, McDonald's adds a match on a portion of your savings. The 401k is your primary retirement savings vehicle at McDonald's. You are always 100% vested in your 401k account, which includes your contributions and the company matching contributions, as well as any amounts you roll over into the plan.
    • TIP
    • McDonald’s Target Incentive Plan (TIP) is the variable, at-risk portion of your cash compensation package. The program is Rewards based upon the annual performance of both the Company and your individual goal achievement. TIP is not guaranteed and payouts will generally vary from year-to-year, with years of strong performance yielding higher awards, and years of lower performance resulting in lower awards, or in some circumstances, no awards.
    • LTI
    • McDonald’s Long Term Incentive Plan (LTI), is the at-risk, future element of pay that is based on your sustained performance and future potential, as well as McDonald’s talent needs. The returns on these incentives are tied to company performance and align your interests with those of our shareholders, which creates a focus on long-term business success.

Where a role is advertised as located outside the United States, the benefits and compensation offered will be in line with those offered to local employees in that country. The same design principles will apply but the actual benefits offered may differ from country to country based on competitive and other local practices.
