"1,000 applications available Monday and they were all taken with more people wanting one."

But the employer was expected to hire only 35 to 50 employees.

Ouch, at best you have only a 5% shot at getting a job at this joint. You had better have a hell of resume!!

I'm thinking some older people may be better than all young, only because I know there's more than a few older hobbyists that would be perfect for some the customer service positions. Lots of model aircraft pilots around here too.

The best way to cull the flood of applications, is to outright reject the ones wil spelling errors. Especially ones that cannot spell the name of the city they live-in correctly.

If they have that much of a lack of detail in filling out a job application, then they likely will be a real nightmare in the shop.
