Pizza Hut jobs

Wanna love your job almost as much as you love pizza?

Good news: This might actually be possible.

Pizza Hut has big plans to hire more than 11,000 folks across the country, according to this recent press release.

Why is Pizza Hut Hiring So Many People?

Even if you’re not into football, you probably know Super Bowl Sunday is coming up in about two weeks. Hey, I just show up for the buzzworthy commercials.

And the pizza.

The number of Pizza Hut orders spikes on this Sunday evening. That’s why it needs first-, second- and third-string players to tackle the high demand.

The Super Bowl is a big deal, apparently, but these jobs are permanent, as Pizza Hut says it’s making an effort to improve customers’ experiences — all day, every day. It has also pledged to open more U.S. and international locations.

Who Does Pizza Hut Want to Hire?

Positions range from pizza-makers to delivery drivers to managers.

“The Pizza Hut system is looking for 11,000 new go-getters to give our fans as positive of an experience as possible,” said Kelly McCulloch, senior director of human resources.
