Pilot Company to hold hiring event to fill 10,000 jobs nationwide

Pilot Company is holding a “Hiring Day” event next week to fill around 10,000 jobs at company-operated travel centers and restaurants in the U.S. and Canada to prepare for the summer travel season. Pilot is looking for both full- and part-time team members.

The event will be held on May 3 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at more than 670 participating Pilot Flying J travel centers, One9 Fuel Network locations, and on-premises fast food restaurants. The event has meet-and-greet opportunities including interviews.

In addition to roles in retail and service, Pilot is planning to hire fuel drivers with a Commercial Drivers License. On the corporate side, there are positions available in technology, finance, human resources, recruiting, marketing, guest services and more at the Knoxville Sales and Support Center headquarters, offices in Dallas and Houston, and a new IT center of excellence in Atlanta.

“Since 1958, we’ve fueled millions of journeys and we look forward to having more great people join us as we gear up for another busy summer and keep innovating to prepare for the future of travel,” said Paul Shore, Chief People Officer of Pilot Company. “We’re offering better opportunities, better perks and better benefits with a stable and growing company that invests in its team members to help them learn and grow. Nearly three out of four leadership promotions come from within our company.”
