The company, Andy Frain Services, is headquartered in Aurora, Illinois but has an office in Tuscaloosa's University Mall.

A representative for the company told the Tuscaloosa Thread that they have an immediate need to hire hundreds of event and security staff to work the Games.

Workers' compensation begins at $16 an hour, and anyone who is hired to work the Games will also be able to work other events for Andy Frain, including athletics events at the University of Alabama.

Anyone interested in applying can visit Andy Frain Services in the mall, apply online at andyfrain.com or call 205-409-0292.

Applicants will need to provide their driver's license, social security number and bank information if they wish to be paid via direct deposit. Paper paychecks are also available but may take a few days longer to process.

Applicants will also be subject to a background check that a company representative called "minimal."

Some of the required uniform will be provided to new hires, although they will need to wear their own black pants and shoes.
