Winn Dixie job fair has great turnout

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - People across the Chattahoochee Valley came out to Winn Dixie on Wednesday looking for new job.

The grocery store opened its doors for anyone looking for a new career today from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We spoke to the District Director on the great turnout of people applying for a new position.

"As soon as you put job fair and then we put it out there, the response as you can see, the first time we did one at this store we had like 600 to 700 people," said Richard McGough. "So it gives us a great opportunity to help them find jobs, and it does us good because we're able to fill positions that we need to fill."

The grocery store is looking to hire people in all departments, including management.
