Domino’s Pizza puts out ‘help wanted’ sign for variety of job roles
Domino's Pizza is going on a hiring offensive in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
The largest pizza company in the world (based on global retail sales) has open store positions that include delivery experts, pizza makers, customer service representatives, managers and assistant managers. Domino’s U.S supply chain centers are also hiring Class A CDL drivers. In all, Domino’s expects to hire about 10,000 workers nationwide, reported CNBC.
Earlier this week, Domino’s unveiled new contactless delivery policies as part of its detailed coronavirus crisis plan. Although many restaurant brands now provide contactless delivery, Domino’s has upped the game. When selecting contactless delivery, customers can leave specific instructions for where they want the order to be placed, whether it’s at the front door or at a reception desk.
"While many local, state, and federal rules are closing dine-in restaurants, the opportunity to keep feeding our neighbors through delivery and carryout means that a small sense of normalcy is still available to everyone," said Richard Allison, Domino's CEO, in a statement. "Our corporate and franchise stores want to make sure they're not only feeding people, but also providing opportunity to those looking for work at this time, especially those in the heavily-impacted restaurant industry."
Domino’s is one of the best positioned restaurant companies because it is known for delivery, which accounts for about 55% of its total orders, according to CNBC.
The chain has more than 17,000 stores in over 90 markets. Domino's had global retail sales of over $14.3 billion in 2019, with over $7.0 billion in the U.S. and nearly $7.3 billion internationally.
