Change Center holding job hiring event

Local News

“Save Our Sons Knoxville” is teaming up with the Change Center and a chain of Pigeon Forge restaurants to give opportunities to inner-city young people. 

This weekend, they’re hosting a special job interview session at Knoxville’s Overcoming Believer’s Church. The event will give applicants the chance to work at Johnson Family Restaurants in Pigeon Forge. That includes Bennett’s Pit Barbeque, Alamo Steakhouse and three other restaurants in the area. 

As an added bonus, the Change Center is offering free transportation to and from the restaurants for those hired.

“There is a need both ways,” said Kelly Johnson, who works for the restaurant ownership group. “A supply and demand problem, so I figured we should try and bring those together.”

Applicants are asked to bring two forms of identification — either a driver’s license, birth certificate, passport or Social Security card.

The information meeting is this Sunday from 2-4 p.m. at the Overcoming Believer’s Church in Knoxville on Harriet Tubman Street.
