Pilot Flying J to Add 5,000 New Team Members This Summer

"We are always looking for team members who wake up excited to be part of our team and to deliver the experience our guests know and expect from us," said Paul Shore, vice president of talent acquisition at Pilot Flying J. "Our care and commitment to our team members originated 60 years ago as a small family-owned company by a Korean War veteran and we are proud to offer our team of over 27,000 employees a family-like work environment with great opportunities and benefits."
Pilot Flying J offers full-time and part-time hires weekly pay, affordable health plans, training, advancement opportunities, and perks like free fountain and hot beverages.

During this year's hiring push, Pilot Flying J is looking to fill positions that range from entry level to management roles across its retail, restaurant and deli operations throughout North America.
According to the company, "Pilot Flying J hires team members that understand the needs of guests and are committed to elevating the overall customer experience. Unlike other summer jobs, the company intends for both full-time and part-time hires to extend well beyond Labor Day."
