Even before interviews were set to start, people were waiting for their opportunity.
Tevin Wilson is a student. "It's pretty hard. It's pretty hard to find a job," he explains.
Colby Velarde, Franklin County Resident is also looking, "Need a job, been looking for one for a little while, heard the job fair was out here. Thought I'd come on out."
A lot of people are in that same boat.
When Kohl's announced it was hiring 130-workers, it caught a lot people's attention.
"I jumped on it, i jumped on it - something I looked into because I like to do retail work," says Roanoke Resident Sonya Wilson.
For Wilson and her son Tevin, it was a family affair. They came together.
While Sonya already has a full-time job, she was looking for a 2nd one to help with family finances.
"It would relieve a lot of burdens I have and take a lot pressure off my shoulders," explains Wilson.
That's a sentiment a lot folks can sympathize with.
Like Brenda Mills, she lost her job earlier this year.
"Since April the 1st, I lost my job," Brenda Mills tells News7. "Nobody's hiring. No where."
The new Roanoke store in Hunting Hills Plaza is scheduled to open in late September.
At this point, the positions are only part time.
But, many like Mills, hope they'll turn into something more.
The job fair runs through Thursday.
Organizers are asking that you set up an interview before coming out.
