Calling all job seekers. The Nebraska Crossing Outlets will be opening later this month and the new stores are looking for employees.
Tuesday afternoon job seekers got their chance to apply. 20 of the new stores were at a job fair in Omaha, sponsored by the Nebraska Department of Labor.
Some of the stores at the job fair included the Gap, Banana Republic, and Beauty First. The stores are looking to fill some 1,500 positions total.
It was an opportunity that job seekers like 20-year-old Heather Dailey couldn't pass up. "I was pretty excited about it. Considering there aren't very many openings any more. A lot of it is seasonable now a days, but with these new stores opening, hopefully it will be more on board," said Dailey.
Nebraska Crossing opens up November 15th, but employers say they need to hire people now because they start getting their shipments this weekend.
