HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

After nearly 30 Huddle House employees found themselves unexpectedly out of a job, representatives with Waffle House are reaching out a helping hand. 

According to Adrea Maxwell, Area People Director for Waffle House, Inc., Waffle House has hired two of the employees who lost their jobs at Huddle House and are seeking more employees to apply. 

"We would like to invite all of the people that were left without a job by Huddle House to apply for positions with Waffle House," Maxwell said. 

Earlier this week employees with The Huddle House restaurant on U.S. 98 showed up to work to a note on the door. They also said they were not notified of the closing, and have not received their paychecks.

Aside from not receiving recent checks, former employees said they previously had problems verifying the validity of the paychecks they did receive, and often could not find a business that would cash their checks.

Maxwell said employees that lost their jobs can apply for new positions at Waffle House by visiting whcareers.com or by stopping by any Waffle House restaurants in the area.
