The Canadian arm of the restaurant chain said it believes that the names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, employment background and “other standard application information” of people that applied online for a job at McDonald’s Canada between March 2014 to March 2017, were compromised.
The company said its application forms do not request highly sensitive personal information such as social insurance numbers, banking information or health information.
The company said it immediately shut down the site and launched an investigation when it learned of the breach.
The McDonald’s Canada careers Webpage will remain shut until the investigation is completed and appropriate measures are taken to ensure a similar breach does not happen again.
“We apologize to those impacted by this incident,” a statement from the company said. “While the investigation remains ongoing, all applicants who were directly affected by this privacy breach will be notified by a letter in the mail.”
Applicants that did not provide a mailing address on their application form will be contacted via email of telephone.
April 5th is National Hiring Day, and McDonald’s Canada said that those applying for a job at the restaurant chain should do so in person.
