Little Caesar Enterprises to attend first Ilitch School career fair this week

When the Mike Ilitch School of Business hosts its winter career fair this Wednesday, March 8, one of the companies attending for the first time is a name that is very familiar to most WSU students. The Ilitch School’s Career Planning and Placement Office announced last week that Little Caesar Enterprises, Inc. will attend this semester’s career fair, recruiting for a wide variety of positions.

According to Heather Wilson, recruiting coordinator for Little Caesars, the company is seeking to recruit current Ilitch School students and recent graduates across the business disciplines. Some current available opportunities include:

  • Human resources systems assistant
  • IT project manager
  • Franchise operations coordinator
  • Culinary chef, special projects
  • Helpdesk supervisor
  • Facility manager
  • E-learning developer
  • Accounts payable supervisor

The company is also recruiting for a variety of different IT positions at various levels, including the internships.

Founded by Mike and Marian Ilitch in 1959, Little Caesars has grown from a single store in Garden City, Michigan, into the third-largest pizza chain in the world. It is now the fastest-growing pizza chain in the U.S. This venture laid the groundwork for the development and acquisition of numerous other businesses and sports teams and, in 2015, allowed Mr. and Mrs. Ilitch to provide their historic $40 million gift that renamed the Mike Ilitch School of Business.

Why work at Little Caesars?

“Still family owned and operated, Little Caesars has a culture where we work as a team and we’re always willing to take that extra step to help others,” Wilson said. “We treat each other as family and everyone’s voice at the table matters. We are a company that likes to work hard and have fun. With the Little Caesars Arena and new world headquarters being built, there are a lot of exciting things happening within the Little Caesars family.”

The Mike Ilitch School of Business winter career fair will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. this Wednesday, March 8, in the WSU Student Center Ballroom. The event is open to all business majors, but registration is required at waynebizcareers.com. A full list of the companies that will be attending can be found at the bottom of this article.
