Looking for an internship that will make you smile? If you are a team player with a magnetic personality and a passion for people, apply to join Eat’n Park’s marketing team!


As a part of Team Smiley, you’ll represent Pittsburgh’s leading restaurant chain and work with the public in a high-profile role as a brand ambassador. It’s a great opportunity for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in marketing, communications, or public relations to gain hands-on experience, both in the field and in the office. Our interns are an integral part of our Marketing Team and are the face of Eat’n Park in the neighborhoods we serve. You’ll receive competitive pay and exclusive team member discounts to Eat’n Park Hospitality Group restaurant brands. The schedule provides between 20 and 35 hours a week during the summer months.


Field experience

Team Smiley interns are the driving force behind Eat’n Park’s mobile marketing program. They operate and maintain Smiley’s Cookie Cruiser while traveling through Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia – and, they have fun while doing it! Our brand ambassadors create smiles all summer long at community and family-friendly events. Members of Team Smiley work as a part of a cohesive team, independent of a supervisor, throughout the summer. 75% of their time will be spent interacting with guests and representing the Eat’n Park brand within the community.


Office experience

One day a week, interns work at our Corporate Support Center office, alongside the marketing department to brainstorm and develop new projects, execute special assignments, and contribute weekly to our blog and social media accounts. They have incredible exposure to senior leadership within the company and will present an end-of-summer presentation to recap the Team Smiley experience.


What past interns are saying:

“Working in the field is so much fun – all of the events are different and unique.”


“At each event, we’re able to see the impact we’re leaving on the community and we’re able to hear just how much Eat’n Park means to everyone.”


“The projects that we work on are meaningful and make an impact on the company. For me, that’s really important because I want to know that the work I’m doing is relevant.”


“The chances we’ve had to work with people in the organization have made a really big impact on our experience and I’m excited to take these skills to the professional field.”


“Eat’n Park cares about setting you up for success. They really want you to be able to grow and learn.”
