Fanatics looking to hire workers for seasonal jobs

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville area distribution companies continue to look for temporary workers for the upcoming Christmas Shopping season.  One, located in Fairdale, supplies sport jerseys to rabid fans. 

The company is Fanatics, located inside a giant warehouse on National Turnpike Road.  Fanatics bills itself as the world's largest on line retailer of licensed sports merchandise.

Most of the year Fanatics has about 60 employees, but this time of year, just before the start of the online holiday shopping season, that number soars.

"We are going to peak at about 800 people," says David Rock of Kelly Services which does the hiring for Fanatics. "We need to hire about 200 more folks, these are seasonal jobs so the assignment can last for about four weeks."

Pay starts at $9 an hour and goes up to $11.25 an hour.

Although the jobs last only for about four weeks, it will be an intense work schedule with about 50 to 60 hour workweeks.  "This kind of work is not easy, it is very detailed oriented," explains Rock. "You have to make sure you are getting the letters correct, spelling the name correctly, and having the numbers in the right order."

Kelly Services is doing the hiring.
