Job seekers show up early for Gold's Gym positions

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA- The owners of a new health club in Kennewick say more than double the people they're looking for have applied for positions.  

Early birds hoped to catch the job at today's hiring fair at the Three Rivers Convention Center. Idris Adaker was first in line. He's a weightlifter and personal trainer looking for steady work.

"I'm going to school and looking for a part time job. I used to train people, so I think I'll be really good at it."

The operations manager at Gold's Gym says she expects to fill about half of the 80 positions this week.

The health club is scheduled to open at the old Hastings bookstore off highway 395 shortly after Memorial Day.
