Dominos says its been inundated with job seekers after calling for extra workers.
Newly unemployed people desperate for work are responding to the pizza chain’s call for 2,000 extra workers.
Dominos inundated with 10,000 applications
Dominos says it received 10,000 applications in less than 24-hours for the positions, which include in-store and delivery jobs.
Spokesperson Tracey Llewelyn says:
“We’ve been absolutely inundated since we announced we’d be hiring … at one point we were getting one application every five seconds.”
Domino’s is encouraging those who may have recently lost jobs due to the COVID-19 crisis to apply because:
“…as often the skills in the tourism, events and hospitality industries are easily transferable”.
Applications close after today
The Dominos recruitment drive comes as up to a million Aussies lose their jobs as a result of strict measures to combat the coronavirus.
Ms Llewelyn added:
“We really want to look at hiring some of the people who have been impacted the most and lost their jobs in different industry sectors.
“There’s a lot of people out there wanting and needing to pick up some casual and part-time work so they can cover their living expenses through all this.
“We’ve been getting applications from chefs, flight staff, hospitality workers and the like.”
Ms Llewelyn says new recruits will help with the huge increase in demand from people staying at home wanting delivery options.
“There’s a wide range of jobs and I guess the biggest prerequisite besides being responsible and having a resilient spirit is the ability to bring a smile to a customer’s face — particularly when you may be the only person they see that day,” she said.
Hopeful job seekers can submit their application online at: www.jobs.dominos.com.au.
Applications close today.
