Company hiring around 600 seasonal employees

Posted: Updated:

SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - If you are out of a job or need to make some extra money, one company said they are hiring hundreds of people for the holiday season.

Along with the addition of the 600 seasonal jobs the company hopes to add, Zappos, an Amazon owned company, also said they are raising the rate they pay employees.

On Tuesday the company held a job fair.

David Rock, with Kelly Services, explained, "(It's) Not your typical job fair. We're giving away some Dave Matthews Band tickets, also doing some raffles. Uh, we have a radio station coming in to do a live remote with us, trying to make it a kind of fun event."

Devin Luckett who applied for a job, said the process was simple, "You just fill out an application, they call you back, show you a YouTube video of how the job works, take a drug screen and now we're just waiting."

Rock said the company increased their pay rate to $9 an hour for day shift work and $9.75 for the nightshift.
