One McDonald's is so desperate for workers it is giving away iPhones

A McDonald’s restaurant in Illinois is offering iPhones to try to attract new workers.

A viral tweet shows the red and yellow poster outside the store.

The photo, captured by @Brogawd_, was shared Sunday evening.

"McDonald’s Now Hiring," the sign reads. "Free iPhone."  

The sign did not forget to include fine print that says: "After 6 months employment & meet employment criteria."

The sign is at a McDonald's in Altamont, Illinois.

The global fast-food chain is competing with other restaurants that are hiring nationwide.  Another McDonald's in Florida offered $50 to people just to show up for a job interview.
