‘Now hiring, non-stupid people’: Pizza shop blows up on social media


Santino’s Pizzeria in southwest Columbus, Ohio, has gone viral on social media for making a “nontraditional” hiring sign.

The hiring sign reads: “Now hiring, non-stupid people.”

According to WSYX, the pizzeria said the sign was just meant to be hilarious. Though one customer made a fake order of $100 and never picked it up.

“Oh I laughed, I did laugh at it, but I get it. I get where they’re coming from, but I don’t think it was a bad idea,” said customer Natasha Fox.

Fox was one of the customers who said they don’t have any issue with the sign, WSYX reported.

“I understand where they’re coming from, because you want someone working here who’s going to comprehend taking orders or service, but it can be offensive, but I’m here,” Fox continued.

Jayden Dunigan, the owner’s daughter, “It’s more humor than anything. It wasn’t meant to target anyone like that or be rude.”

While Dunigan has worked in her parents’ shop for years, she said finding good help has been hard. Hence, the sign.

“A lot of people we’ve hired just don’t want to work. There is no work ethic behind them, so that’s the meaning behind the ‘Non stupid.’”
