UNION — As many as 16 people who applied for them earlier this week could soon have jobs at a local restaurant.
Pizza Hut held a job recruitment event Wednesday morning at the SCWorks Union office looking to hire delivery drivers, servers, and cooks.
Manager Barbara Bradburn said that approximately 30 people put in applications for the positions and were interviewed by her and Assistant Manager Lisa Brannon. Bradburn said she was pleased with the turnout for the event and that up to 16 of the applicants could soon be hired. She said was also pleased that many of those applicants are able to work flexible hours as required by the positions to be filled.
“We’re planning on hiring at least eight drivers, four servers, and four cooks,” Bradburn said Friday. “I was really surprised at how many people showed up. I was really glad that we got some applicants who could work flexible hours.”
Bradburn said that the restaurant is still taking applications for drivers and that anyone who wants to work as a driver should apply online at email@example.com.
Pizza hut delivery drivers must be at least 18 years old.
