A few weeks ago we featured a job fair by Verizon Wireless, looking to fill a bunch of new store positions at Spokane and North Idaho stores.
So how good a turnout did the company get during the four-hour fair? We learned this much from a company spokeswoman, Erica O'Connor:
“Verizon had 61 applicants attend their recent Spokane retail job fair. The HR team is engaging in follow-up and evaluation with hiring decisions coming soon. Employees selected from this job fair would likely begin training in July.”
