FAIRDALE, KY (WAVE) - Hundreds of seasonal jobs are up for grabs at a sports merchandising center in Fairdale.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer teamed with Doug Jaynes, Fanatics Senior Human Resource Manager and Deanne Coleman, Kelly Services Regional Vice President to announce nearly 1,000 season job openings at the Fanatics fulfillment center at 9205 National Turnpike. Self-proclaimed, Fanatics is the world's largest online retailer of officially licensed sports merchandise.
"This facility opened in 2010 and since then has grown with the help of talent local individuals who work extremely hard to meet our seasonal volume as sales continue to increase," said Jaynes. "Fanatics is excited to partner with Kelly Services to help us find talented individuals to fill these very important seasonal positions."
Kelly Services will conduct the hiring process for the center, looking to fill picker, packer, setter and presser position for both day and night shifts.
"We are taking applicants from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday," said Coleman. "People can either log on to kellyfan.com and register and set themselves up an appointment to come in or they can actually just come here to the facility."
Mayor Fischer applauded the variety of opportunities before suggesting hard work by seasonal staff would be rewarded.
"Those that have distinguished themselves during this peak season will be the ones that stay on as full time employees," began Mayor Fischer. "So I would encourage you all to look at this as a gateway to a career in the logistics industry."
Hiring will begin immediately. Coleman said seasonal employees are capable of beginning seasonal work just days after a successful interview process.
