Line Out The Door For 7-Eleven Job

Dozens lined up for a job at a 7-Eleven in Fountain Friday. There was a line out the door.

" With the economy and with so many people being laid off, you’ve got rent to pay, food, and bills piling up. You've got to get out and work," said Amy Goldsbury, just one of many waiting outside in the high winds.

Applications were at the register inside. The manager had agreed to interview anyone who stopped by.

Those who came in for a snack couldn’t help but wonder what the huge line was for.

And all of the applicants seemed to know each other in the tight knit Fountain.

“We all know each other here. We basically live in the same neighborhood,” said Goldsbury.

But this day, may the best man, or woman, win.

    If the demand is that high for a job hopefully the quality of employee will increase.

    What? Your comments make no sense at all. Are you saying it's the news station's fault your friends did not qualify for a job?

    jim-- your posting made absolutely no sense. I honestly could not tell what the heck you were trying to say. I'm sure you had a valid point in there somewhere- so please repost in a way that can be understood.
