Job fair already looking for Christmas workers

ROCKFORD (WREX) - Several Rockford-area residents may be getting their Christmas in June. Bon-Ton, the parent company of Bergner's, held a job fair Thursday afternoon.

The company is looking to hire second shift seasonal processors and material handlers for its distribution center here in Rockford. Even though we're still in the month of June, the fair is for holiday season jobs.

"The busy season starts in July and August, believe it or not. You gotta plan for the Christmas shopping season, and they want to get people in there as quickly as possible. So we're hoping some of the applications today pan out and people get interviews and get some employment," said John Strandin with Workforce Connection.

Those who couldn't make the fair but still want to be part of it can apply online. Click Here for the link.
