MASON, Ohio -- A park spokesman says 2,335 people turned out for a job fair at Kings Island Amusement Park, the largest one-day turnout for a job fair in the 38-year history of the park near Cincinnati.
The job fair that started Saturday was organized to hire about 4,000 employees for the park season that begins April 17.
Organizers say more than 10,000 people have applied for the open positions.
It was continuing today.
Several had interviews and some were offered jobs on the spot, though most decisions won't be made until next week.
Spokesman Don Helbig says there is a lot of competition for the open slots.
