More Than 9,300 Apply for 1,900 Part Time Jobs at Barclays

More than 9,300 people applied for jobs at the Barclays Center, opening Sept. 28 in Brooklyn according to Atlantic Yards Report, quoting Crain's (subscription).

Job seekers heard about the work from postcards mailed to Housing Authority residents by developer Forest City Ratner, which also visited local churches. About 2,000 jobs are available; roughly 1,900 are part time and 100 full time.

Atlantic Yards Report asks, "Does this mean the arena's a savior, or that Brooklyn has a lot of unemployed people?"

Many of the jobs are likely at the Barclays' many bars, nightclubs and restaurants which will spill thousands of drunken, brawling patrons out into the surrounding residential streets at 2 a.m.
