New Company Is Bringing Jobs To Eastern Kentucky

A new company is bringing new jobs to eastern Kentucky.

Tractor Supply started hiring in Paintsville for its new Johnson County location.

Tractor Supply district managers say unlike other companies, their business is growing and they felt this was the right time to expand and thought eastern Kentucky was the best place to go.

They're setting up stores and offices in Pikeville, Paintsville, Morehead, Louisa, and possibly two more cities.

They have high paying jobs, and now hundreds are applying at a job fair.

Tractor Supply managers don't know yet exactly how many people total they can hire, but their Pikeville store just opened, and they say it's exceeding sales and profit expectations, and that's a good sign.

They're looking for welders, farmers, horse owners, retail and customer service.

The job fair continues Tuesday and Wednesday from nine to five at the Entrepreneur Center in Paintsville.
