      Darlene, In reply to your question on our web site….www.RedHotAtlantaHomes.com regarding the Waterford Wedgewood Store.

      I am extremely interested in appkying to the Waterford-Wedgewood store for employment. I reside close-by and have sold Waterford crystal for years with Federated Dept Stores, also Wedgewood China. Where and how do I apply?

      We were writing about the recent job fair being held. From newspaper articles I have seen you may want to contact Georgia Dept of Labor. Also check the Waterford Wedgewood web site.

      I am sure there will be more job fair and we will write about them. Then make sure you attend to find employment opportunities.

      Best of luck and lucky you having worked with Waterford and Wedgewood!

      With grand opening on July 18, would imagine most jobs are filled. However, you can check on applications in stores or try the Cobb-Cherokee Career Center at (770) 528-6100. Also, you might connect through social media by visiting their website at http://www.dol.state.ga.us. Best of luck.
