The Los Angeles Rams are looking for a few good employees to work at games during the team's first season back in Southern California in two decades.
A Rams Hiring Event kicked off Friday morning, when hundreds of people will be hired to work at concerts and sporting events.
The event is at 3965 South Vermont Ave., where several applicants had already lined up Friday morning down the block. Akasia Moore was wrapped in a blanket and sitting on a folding chair as she waited for the event to kick off.
"I'm cold, I'm tired, but I'm happy," said Moore. "It's a job. I'm just happy I have the opportunity to get a job."
Later Friday morning, the line extended around the block.
"We came out here and there was actually a line, so we went back home for some chairs," said Rhonda McGlory. "I didn't know it was going to be this big."
The South LA WorkSource Center partnered with CSC, which provides event staffing services, to organize the hiring event.
Applicants should bring identification. Those hired will work at sporting events, including the Rams, USC and UCLA and the Galaxy, plus concerts.
Call 323-730-7900 ext. 227 for more information.
The LA Rams will play their first preseason game on Aug. 13 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and open the regular season on Sept. 12 at Levi's Stadium against the San Francisco 49ers. The Rams will make their home regular season debut on Sept 18 against the Seattle Seahawks.
