LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Hundreds of summer jobs are available for students through the Mayor's Summerworks program.
They include a number of positions at several local warehouses including GSI Commerce, Zappos and the Amazon Fulfillment Center.
Available jobs include pickers, packers, press operators, forklift operators, distribution associates and truck loaders.
The jobs are open specifically to young adults ages 18 to 21.
"Many of them work more than 30 hours a week, many of them pay more than minimum wage so you could make good money this summer to help you pay for school and then you could build a relationship with a company that might hire you the next time the Christmas rush comes around or the next time you're trying to get to a part time job where you're trying to earn some extra money you would already have a relationship," says Michael Gritton, Kentuckiana Works Executive Director.
Those interested need to register through the Mayor's Summerworks program tomorrow or Tuesday.
Call 502-574-4727 to schedule an appointment.
Registration will take place at the Kentuckiana-Works Youth Career Center on West Broadway from 10 to 2 tomorrow and then from 2 to 5 on Tuesday.
