AURORA, Colo. (AP) -- A department store opening in Aurora seeking to fill 150 positions is being flooded with hundreds of applicants, some of whom say they haven't been able to find a job in months.
The response to Kohl's Department Store's call for applications was so overwhelming that the more than 1,000 applications on its Web site forced its online application system to shut down. Hundreds more arrived in person Monday at the Kohl's job fair at the DoubleTree Hotel in Aurora.
Kohl's plans to open a new store in March.
Most of the jobs were part-time and they paid $7 to $12 an hour.
Kohl's district manager Doug Arnoldi says the response was beyond his expectations.
