The Workforce Center is a hot spot for the unemployed.
Earlier this week, over 700 people were there applying for work at T.J. Maxx.
On Thursday, Tractor Supply Co. started its interview process, one that may end up turning things around a bit for those who have hit hard times.
Rocky Bailey was the 30th person in line outside the Workforce Center.
He turned in his application and optimistically waits to interview with Tractor Supply Co.
"I’ve been in the oil and gas industry all my life and the job market is hard right now," Bailey said.
Since there is not a lot of hiring in the local energy industry, Bailey is adjusting.
He doesn't want to leave the place he's lived all his life.
"I’ve been on unemployment and its coming to an end here,” He said. “I’ve got to have a life and pay my bills."
Behind him in line are hundreds of others, hoping to snag the same job he's after.
"I was told there were roughly 70 people ahead of me,” Michael Searle said. “I expected a lot of people."
Searle has also been looking for a job in Colorado; it's a search that has dragged on for months.
"What jobs are available aren't necessarily in the areas that my training or skills are in and frustration can be high," Searle explained.
The Workforce Center says Tractor Supply's hiring event is attracting many qualified applicants and that turnout for the event shows the willingness of these folks to remain self-sufficient.
"I’m hoping I can get me a job in shipping and receiving, or something that will work me 30 to 40 hours a week and help me pays my bills," Bailey said.
