Dominoes delivers jobs for unemployed

MICHAEL Piatek has, for the first time, enough delivery drivers for his Tweed and Tugun Dominoes stores.

While so many companies are laying off workers, others, like Domino's Pizza and Woolworths, have given the jobless some good news by announcing their plans to employ thousands more people.

Domino's Tweed Heads and Tugun are among the franchise stores that Mr Piatek owns.

He said he had been “inundated” with applications in the last few weeks.

“There are so many applications, it is crazy,” he said.

“I have always been short of staff and rarely had enough delivery drivers, it was the same at all nine of my stores.

“Now I have 25 applications for the Tugun and Tweed stores, it is the first time it has been like that.”

Mr Piatek said he would soon have enough delivery drivers and customers should notice delivery times improve.

Earlier this week Domino's launched, with 2500 jobs on offer and already 1300 applications have been received.

Woolworths also announced it would be hiring 7000 Australia wide.

Domino's CEO Don Meij said he was thrilled with the quick response by people wanting to join the company.

“Already we have seen more than 1300 applications lodged through the e-recruitment site,” Mr Meij said.
