(BPRW) Calling All Besties – Denny’s is Hiring Best Friends and Offering Them a Chance to Win “The Perfect Weekend Off”

Denny’s is Hiring 15,000 #Friendployees Who are Seeking Flexible Work Schedules in a Friend-Friendly Work Environment

(Black PR Wire) SPARTANBURG, S.C. – At Denny’s, everything is better together – pancakes and eggs, burgers and milkshakes, and besties at work. That’s why we’re inviting 7,500 people and their best friends to become #Friendployees at Denny’s restaurants nationwide. And, because we know that friends who work together stay together, applicants can enter for a chance to score “The Perfect Weekend Off” – an all-expense paid vacay for two to the U.S. destination of their choice.

“Denny’s is a company that values family and friends and we believe there is no better way to enjoy your day on – and off – than with your best friend,” said Gail Sharps Myers, Denny’s Chief People Officer. “One of the great things we always hear from our restaurant employees is how much they love our friend-friendly working environment and the flexibility of working at Denny’s. We’re excited to welcome 15,000 new employees to our restaurants and to celebrate the flexibility they’ll have with us, we’re offering #Friendployees who love to work and play together a chance to win ‘The Perfect Weekend Off’.”

For those applying for a gig at Denny’s and entering “The Perfect Weekend Off” sweepstakes, flexibility is our top priority. Applicants can visit their local Denny’s restaurant to complete a special “mattplication,” a perforated placemat that includes a short application with a QR code that links to the entry form. Or, they can visit to complete a simple job application and the entry form for a chance to win. No matter how they decide to enter, applicants should be sure to share their first and last name and a valid email address and phone number on their application and entry form. There is a maximum of one entry per person and sweepstakes entrants can enter without completing an application.

The lucky winner of “The Perfect Weekend Off” will not only get a vacay – they’ll work for a friend-friendly brand that offers flexibility for time off with their bestie whenever they want, to do whatever they love – checking out a hoops game, going snowboarding or even hitting up the hottest music festival of the summer – it’s their choice! The prize includes a three-day/two-night trip with two round-trip domestic flights, hotel accommodations for two nights and spending money.

Apply today for a job at Denny’s that offers the ultimate flexibility in a friend-friendly environment and put your name in the hat “The Perfect Weekend Off” that runs now through June 17.
