By Sarah Cantey

Hundreds braved the heat, waiting in line for hours outside of the Wetumpka Civic Center. Hoping to get one of the more than 600 jobs up for grabs at the soon to open casino expansion. 

The Wind Creek casino floor will open up December 17th and the hotel will be open late January or middle February.
They were hiring everything from accountants, to housekeepers, to game attendants.
More than 2,000 people are unemployed in Elmore County alone. Many people were hired on the spot. 
Cassandra Lucas said, "Just because you go to college, it still ain't easy to get a job. You know what I'm saying, it is still hard. They want you to beg for these jobs basically but you know I was successful to come here today and get me a job and I'm loving it!"
