Fanatics looking to hire 600 seasonal workers in Louisville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A sports apparel company needs to score hundreds of workers, and promises a nice payoff.

Fanatics Louisville wants to hire 600 seasonal workers leading up to the holidays. The company makes licensed sports wear for pro sports and colleges.
The jobs available include warehouse work, and making and pressing jerseys. 

Employees are offered incentives like free TVs and gift cards for perfect attendance.

And that's not all: the pay rate is higher than it has ever been. 

"We raised our rate $1.50 over last year - so 14% - and raised our shift premium for the night shift from 50 cents to a dollar," said Michael Downs with Fanatics. "So we're a good competitive place to work."

Fanatics says all of its full time employees started out as seasonal workers so there's always a chance the jobs can become permanent.
