McDonald's is on a mission to hire 50,000 new workers across all 50 states on April 19.

The positions range from jobs flipping burgers to managing restaurants, with opportunities to work full- or part-time.

The fast-food chain has spread the word mainly through national and local press, and on Tuesday organized a media blitz at its Rockefeller Center location in midtown Manhattan.

More than 20 reporters flooded the restaurant, outnumbering applicants -- at least in the early hours -- by 5 to 1.

A few blocks away, applicants streamed into other locations steadily throughout the morning.
