Trotwood job fair attracts hundreds

Trotwood Hiring Fair

TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – Hundreds of job seekers packed Trotwood High School Wednesday as a dozen employers looked to fill about 200 positions.

Payless Shoe Source, Trotwood Police, Lowe’s, R&J Trucking, Pizza Hut, MetLife, Hearts on Call, The Home Depot, Meijer and Teleperformance were among the employers.

“Trotwood’s got a high unemployment number, like a lot of the communities in the Miami Valley.  It’s really important to us to try to do what we can to help the residents here,” says Trotwood City Councilman Bruce Kettelle.

The Hiring Fair was hosted by the City of Trotwood and Ohio Means Jobs-Montgomery County.

“This is great for the Trotwood community.  They’ve faced a couple knock downs, here but they’re feeling good and a lot of movement is coming north to Montgomery County.  So, we’re very excited about it,” explains Montgomery County Commissioner Judy Dodge.

People who live here in Trotwood are thankful for the opportunity to find work close to home.

“There just seems to be, just a decline in the number of businesses in the area and for there to be a job fair in Trotwood, just came out to see what’s available,” says job-seeker Daphne Ellis.
