Tuesday, McDonald's held its first national hiring day, hoping to fill 50,000 positions nationwide, and 30 in Albany. It's an effort to beef up staffing before the busy summer months.

Tuesday, McDonald's was filled with more than just the everyday casual diner. It was filled with ambitious, anxious and determined folks hoping to land a job.

 Michael Harris, the owner operator of four stores in Albany says the response has been great, and anticipates extending hours past 5pm just to get through all of the interviews, and because of the pool of good applicants, he expects to hire more people than originally anticipated. "We are looking to hire five to ten people per store instead of four to five,"said Harris.

He's seen a variety of applicants, from students dressed for school, to those decked out in business suits with resumes in hand, willing to go above and beyond for a job.

We ran into folks looking for a second job, those who are unemployed and those seeking financial independence, "If everything goes good which it is, they're going to call me back, and I'm going to be wearing a McDonalds suit," said Janeque Stephens who was searching for a job.

And that's a good thing, because McDonalds is hiring people for all sorts of positions. "I have positions for those who are coming in and never had a job to those wanting to be a manager," said Harris.

In the meantime, applicants are crossing their fingers, in hopes that the next time they walk into McDonald's, its for a job, instead of the fries.

Many people found out Tuesday whether they got a job, and other applicants should know before the week ends.
