On Tuesday, Dec. 20 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at two locations in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area, Denny’s will hold open interviews for any job seeker looking for part-time, full-time or management positions.All that a candidate needs to bring with them to be considered are two forms of valid identification.Interviews will be held at:

“Denny’s is pleased to partner with the Rebuild Your Life Project to provide South Florida residents opportunities for success,” said Denny’s Regional Manager Nader Talebzadeh.“The organization’s mission to inspire those in need to reach for their goals is in-line with Denny’s commitment to the communities we serve and the professional development of our employees.Denny’s supports the Rebuild Your Life Project and encourages women and men in search of life-changing opportunities to participate in this open interview event.”
Denny’s became involved with the Rebuild Your Life Project through Te-Erika Patterson, the organization’s founder who is also a Denny’s employee. In April 2011, Patterson gained exposure by intentionally becoming homeless as part of a living documentary to empower women and demonstrate strategies for rebuilding one’s life during times of extreme hardship. During her bout self-imposed homelessness, Denny’s gave Patterson a chance and hired her as a server in its Hollywood, Fla. diner. She has been a loyal employee ever since and uses her wages to fund philanthropic efforts through the Rebuild Your Life Project.
“Denny’s helped me to rebuild my life by giving me a second chance and now they are offering that same gift to many others in this community,” Patterson said.“I am so thankful for the opportunities Denny’s has provided and for their support in this hiring event.It is my mission to inspire and encourage others and this opportunity is an open door for those looking to change their lives for the better.”
