This means that we're always on the lookout for new, talented and courageous people, to help us win the war against dodgy pizza.
We love promoting from within, and rewarding hard work and dedication. For example, a former delivery driver now owns 5 of his own Capers franchises, a former kitchen hand has worked his way through to Operations Manager, and plenty of our Store Managers have been promoted to Area Managers, Field Trainers and the like. So, there is definitely plenty of scope for moving upwards and developing your career and skills through the best pizza place in town.
We have positions available that enable you to enter the Capers family at many different levels, if you're the right person, with the right attitude.
As a Capers store manager you'll be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the store. From managing and handling food preparation, to making pizzas, serving guests, answering phones and cleaning up. Our managers do not sit in an office. They are on the floor actively delighting the guests, and developing the team. Some days you'll find team members from Pizza Capers Head Quarters, or even our CEO, out washing pots and serving customers, that's the kind of place we are... There is no task that needs doing which we won't do, and we expect the same from our Store Managers.
Some previous supervisory experience in busy food environments is an advantage, though if you're an ex-pizza person, you may just have to forget a lot of what you've learned! You will also need your own reliable transport.
Assistant Managers assist the Store Manager (funny that). You'll be running shifts on the Manager's days off, and be covering tasks such as food preparation, cleaning, guest service, making pizzas and managing the team. Previous experience is not essential, but the right attitude is. You'll need your own reliable transport to and from work.
Most pizza places have drivers. Our pizzas are a little too special for that, so we need chauffeurs to deliver them. In most cases, you will need your own vehicle, although we pay the best rates and fuel allowances in the business. Our drivers work from around 5:30pm through till around 9:30 or 10pm at the latest so there's plenty of time for socialising after work. Often, you can negotiate the shifts you work with your manager, so it's nice and flexible.
Service staff are the face of our business, answering phones, serving guests at the counter and keeping the front line crisp, clean and inviting. Though you will have some duties out the back, like cleaning up, stocking fridges and the like. If you're keen, and if you've got the gift, we'll even cross train you into pizza making, cutting and garnishing. Previous experience is not necessary as we can teach you what you need to know, though a smile and the ability to talk to our guests about more than the weather is an absolute necessity. Most of these shifts are night time based, with shifts starting and finishing anywhere from 5pm to around 10pm. You'll need your own transport to and from work. The number of shifts you work each week can be negotiated with your manager, though we prefer you to be available 3 – 5 shifts per week, including at least 1 of either Friday or Saturday night, which is when all of the action happens!
Do you love cooking? Are you a foodie? Then this is the job for you! Kitchen people can specialise in areas such as pizza making, pasta and salad making, preparing ingredients, and cleaning up, We'll also coach you out the front as well so you'll be able to answer a phone, serve guests and use the computer system. Again, most of these shifts are night based, with starting and finishing times mostly between 5 & 10pm. The number of shifts you work is flexible and up for negotiation with your manager. Though, we prefer you to be available 3 – 5 shifts per week, including either Friday or Saturday nights, which is when we need the best team on deck.
There are also opportunities within higher management, and most of our team have worked their way up through the ranks to get to where they are today. But if you are the right person, with a great set of skills and previous experience, we'd love to talk to you. We've got roles such as:
- Field Trainers & Store Openers
- Franchise Business Development Managers
- Corporate Store Area Managers
- Franchisee Group Area Managers
So if you're dull boring, arrogant, lazy or not interested in amazing pizza or bedazzling our guests with fantastic service, then please apply at the place down the road.
