Very disappointed in what was called a Job Fair. Most of the hosts were rude and no one was accepting any applications or resumes. My roommate paid a visit to the Four County booth and was treated very rudely by the lady there at the booth. Apparently she was having to work during her lunch hour. The ship building contractor from the Gulf Coast was even at the booth to talk to people. Don't they realize that a lot of people have to come during their lunch hour to visit this so-called Job Fair.
When people need jobs so badly these days you would think the organizers would do a better job of making sure the employers understood that they need to be at their booth the entire time.
