Winn Dixie Job Fair Draws Hundreds

Winn Dixie Job Fair Draws Hundreds

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

Hundreds of people lined the sidewalk by Winn-dixie on Grelot Road Thursday, gripping resumes, pacing away the nerves. All were hoping to land a job.

 In an economy where jobs are hard to come by, applicants poured into The Winn Dixie Parking lot in droves, "We did not expect this big of a turn out", said Store Director Heath Edwards.

For many of the applicants, it wasn't their first job interview.  "It's been really tough. Everyone says they're hiring. I've been putting in applications left and right, but no one has called me back", said Aubrianna Wright who has been looking for a job for weeks.
 
Winn-Dixie will be holding another job fair Friday in Pensacola, Florida at the corner of 9th and Crayton Streets.
