BURGER KING® & Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen Franchisee Seeking Crew and Managers in 11 States

On Wednesday, Sept. 19, GPS Hospitality, a fast-growing BURGER KING® and Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen franchisee, will host its largest-ever job fair with a goal of hiring 1,700 new employees in a single day. GPS looks to hire 1,450 crew and 250 managers to join the team immediately across its more than 400 restaurants in 11 states.

Potential applicants can meet hiring managers on-site for interviews from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. No appointment is necessary, and qualified applicants may be hired on-the-spot.

“Our annual job fair is an opportunity to engage with our communities and find local talent to grow with us,” said GPS Hospitality CEO Tom Garrett. “We look forward to the job fair, which offers our management team an opportunity to be in-restaurant conducting interviews, interacting with applicants and introducing GPS values in personal way.”

Since it was founded in 2012, GPS Hospitality has provided each employee with training, flexible hours and personal growth opportunities as part of their employee-oriented culture.

“The ‘P’ in GPS stands for ‘People Oriented,’ highlighting our people first philosophy,” said GPS’ Vice President of Human Resources Vickie Volan. “As part of our efforts to attract and retain skilled team members, we have recently introduced an employee recognition program allowing our management team to recognize and reward staff that hit major milestones within the company.”

In addition to paid vacation time starting after one year of full-time employment, a rarity in the Quick Service Restaurant industry, GPS awarded close to $5 million in performance-driven monetary bonuses in 2017. Top-level management is eligible for quarterly bonuses, health insurance and other perks and awards.

Last year, GPS Hospitality hired more than 1,000 employees at its annual job fair, and it expects to top that number this year.

Starting Sept. 10, applicants can visit gpsjobfair2018.com view open positions and apply online, or they can visit any GPS Hospitality restaurant on Sept. 19 to apply in person.
