Fayetteville -- The Hilton Garden Inn is looking for employees to start in September when the new hotel opens.

Goodwill hosted a job fair Wednesday, and plenty of people showed up looking for work.

"This has been phenomenal," says Alex Jerde, General Manager of Hilton Garden Inn. "We're half an hour into the job fair so far and we've got 50 people that have shown up."

The hotel is filling forty to fifty positions, including housekeepers, front desk workers, bartenders and dishwashers and pay ranges from $8 to $15 an hour. The applicants went through an initial screening at Wednesday's event. The hotel plans to interview potential hires in depth in a couple weeks.
