GREENWOOD-A few dozen teenagers at Greenwood High School landed their first jobs today.
The new Rankin Highway McDonald’s in Midland held interviews at the school.
They are offering two big incentives to high school students—free rides to and from work and cash for making good grades.
McDonald’s says high schoolers at select Midland/Odessa locations can earn as much as $240 on each calendar report card for good grades.
"I think it's a great idea,” said Freddy Rodriguez, a Greenwood High student who landed a job at today’s job fair. “It motivates people like me to get better grades."
The shuttles they offer to Greenwood High Students will pick them up and bring them to and from school during the week. On weekends, they will get picked up and dropped off at their home.
"Since we're the closest McDonald's to them we're helping them out by shuttling them back and forth so they can actually get a ride to work and back,” said Restaurant Manager Frances Jensen.
The Greenwood shuttles are also available to adults who want to work at the new location.
You can apply to work at the new location at 2307 Rankin Hwy. every day from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. They have an application trailer setup during those times.
