I’m a Shift Manager for Pizza Hut. That means being a pot washer, cleaner, chef and maintenance person all at once. I call it being ‘Mummy-Hut’, because I’m everything to everyone, just like at home. I’ve got three kids and two grandkids, with one living at home with me.
I worked for Pizza Hut more than 15 years ago and worked my way up to Shift Manager but left to start my own catering business with my husband. I came back two years ago back as a Shift Manager. Things had changed but I got all the training I needed and I’ve loved every moment of being back.
There was loads of support when I returned. My Area Manager welcomed me back with open arms — you can have a bit of banter with him! I can work my shifts around the school run and I know there’s the option of further training if I want to progress.
Working in a multigenerational team, I sometimes have to think about how I word things. But I enjoy the opportunity to pass on life skills to the younger team members.
I’m going through the menopause at the moment and the team has been great about that. There’s a few others in the same boat. The team is really family oriented and understanding—they’ll always give me space if I need a minute to myself. HR has even given me advice on this. I couldn’t ask for a better team, to be honest!
I’ve got two grown-up children aged 18 and 21 and I’m a Shift Manager for Pizza Hut—in fact, I just passed my Shift Manager training today! My role is to manage the day-to-day tasks of my team, look after their wellbeing, handle stock control and deliveries, as well as making sure our guests have a fantastic experience.
I started as a Pizza Hut Team Member 30 years ago and worked my way up to Deputy Manager. After I had my first child, the deputy role was a bit too much responsibility so I dropped down to Shift Manager which meant I could do four shifts per week instead of the full five. With my second child, I went back down to Team Member, which I did for over 15 years—and loved it! And now I’m back up to Shift Manager because I know I’ve got more to offer.
I’ve always had time to run my life alongside my work. My son even taught me to kayak! Every time I wanted to drop down a level in my career to accommodate family and lifestyle changes, they’ve found me a role. Pizza Hut has allowed me to tailor my own progression and I still feel that I can progress.
The key to getting the position that’s right for you is being honest about what you want. Pizza Hut will accommodate you. If you can’t do a Tuesday night, for example, they can work around that. You can progress your career as you see fit. Plus, it’s lots of fun and it helps you stay young!
