To apply, go to Pizza Hut's job section of their website. You'll find the qualifications and job descriptions there. They don't require experience to take on some of the roles, but there is a questionnaire that must be filled out. Applicants can also reach out directly to the nearest restaurant.
"Normally it takes about two days in a turnaround response to get back to the employee, assuming the agreement for employment can be made at that point,” says Lockett.

Pizza Hut is offering new services, too, including contactless delivery, contactless carryout and contactless curbside pickup.
"Anytime our pizzas come through our ovens at 400 degrees, it is never touched by hands," says Lockett. "We put that pizza straight into a box, we seal it now with a safety seal, and the next hands that touch that pizza will be at home for the customer."
