Campbell Soup Line.. Looks For Next Seasonal American Idol Maintenance Worker

Some of the more than 1200 people who lined up for a chance at just over 150 seasonal  jobs available a the Campbell’s plant in Sacramento are being turned away.

Officials at the hiring center at 16th Street and Del Paso Blvd. in downtown Sacramento say they did not expect the massive turnout.  They began taking applications for seasonal jobs in shipping, receiving and janitorial services at 7:00am but an hour-and-a-half later, officials began telling people they could go to another hiring center to take a qualifying test.

That’s when some of the people who had been lined up since yesterday afternoon began to get upset.  Some of the job applicants told CBS13 they were mad because the event was poorly organized.

Officials then began handing out blank 3×5 cards telling people to write their names and contact information on the cards.  What had been an organized line, soon became a chaotic throng of people desperately trying to get one of those blank cards. At that time the crowd became unruly..The available jobs pay between $16 and $17 per hour.

Campbells Soup line ummm ummm not so good…Especially when stressed out people waiting to apply were told they could have applied on line…
