Though Applebee's announced earlier this year that more than 100 restaurants will close, a group of New Jersey locations plans to hire more employees.

Seventeen South Jersey locations will be holding hiring events on Monday looking to hire around 150 people, reported. The events will be held across the southern part of the state and Delaware, including Atlantic City, Cherry Hill, Vineland, and Somers Point.

Hiring events will be held from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Interested applicants can apply in advance.  Experience is not required to apply.
