Good luck job hunting!
1. Pizza Hut Jobs: 6,257 Openings
Pizza Hut continues to expand, adding new locations nationwide. For those with a knack for customer-service-with-a-smile, these jobs could be for you. Work in the store, or get behind the wheel as a delivery driver.
Employee Review: “Decent hours, fun working environment, challenging (but not too much), rewarding, quick training (I was cross-trained, so I could fill any role necessary).”
2. UnitedHealth Group Jobs: 3,367 Openings
UnitedHealth Group currently provides health insurance services to more than 75 million people worldwide.
Employee Review: “I really enjoyed my time at UnitedHealth Group. The trainers were very knowledgeable and were always there to answer any questions that I had. I worked as a claims associate for just a few short months before being promoted to another department. I then went on to work from home! Only left this company because of personal issues not related to my job. Great place to work!”
3. Macy’s Jobs: 1,984 Openings
Even though sales are down slightly, the retail giant continues to hire in large quantities nationwide.

Wireless giant AT&T continues to hire in large volumes, as many customers upgrade their smartphones and purchase tablets that require LTE data plans.
