We are a pioneer of the fast casual pizza segment, offering artisan-style individual pizzas and salads, made on demand. As a people-centric company we are focused on making a positive impact on our employees and the communities we serve.
How to Get Hired
We asked MOD Pizza for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
We seek individuals with a passion for people who want to work in a fast-paced, exciting environment. Our Squad members should have perserverance and passion for setting and achieving goals.
MOD celebrates the diversity of our employees, choosing to focus on personality and drive rather than putting unnecessary emphasis on prior food service experience. We ask values based interview questions throughout the different levels of the interview process to gauge their grit, personal growth, generosity and gratitude for life's journey. To become a part of the MOD journey we look for those who can provide specific examples through the interview process showcasing their personal and professional growth, acceptance of others and making connections with their co-workers, providing opportunities to their team, a passion for helping develop others and showing humility with confidence during the interview process.
We don't hire based on pizza making abilities - what we look for is passion and potential!
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Connect with us on Social Media outlets: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Glassdoor, email MOD Careers, submit resumes or portfolios to the Support Center via the MOD website. For new stores, participate in a MOD Job Fair which are held three weeks prior to store openings. For existing stores, stop by a MOD location to drop off a resume with the MOD Squad. Be yourself during your interview and tell us about your passions! If you are committed to doing the right thing, we can make you a great pizza maker.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We are on track to open an additional 50 stores before the end of 2016 – and then another 100 stores in 2017, which will be providing nearly 3000 new jobs throughout the US next year. MOD will be looking for full staffs for each of our new stores, which will include a general manager, assistant GM or captain, and approximately 20 Squad members. As we develop geographic markets, we will be hiring for District and Market Managers to oversee stores in specific regions across the U.S. In addition, The Support Center, located in Bellevue, WA will continue to build out our support teams – construction, accounting, HR, real estate, IT, marketing and operations.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
Candidates can visit our website and see where MOD is currently operating, and also where we are going. On our website candidates can also learn about the MOD story and why we are focused on a greater purpose of building a business based around our people. And rather than hear it all from us, they can check out our news page to see our MOD Squad up in lights – on TV, radio and in print – stories about where we’ve come from and all of the great things along the way. Most importantly, they should visit a MOD store to see and experience for themselves why we’re different!
