A company that processes online orders for consumers plans to hire more than 500 seasonal workers for its Glynn County call center.

GSI Commerce, part of the eBay online network, says it will recruit mostly part-time workers for its Glynn County operations during a job fair July 29 and 30.

Sam Hall, communications director for the Georgia Department of Labor, which will help in the recruitment by screening applicants, said it will be the largest recruitment effort by the department's Brunswick Career Center in the past seven years.

Alfreda Boney, senior recruiter for GSI Commerce, said she expects a turnout of more than 900 people for the recruitment event.
