Check out the queue for job interviews for the Londis chain in Dublin yesterday. 100 jobs advertised, 2000 people turned up. That's a 1 in 20 chance of getting a job so I guess the odds aren't that terrible.
The video was taken from the Live Drive cameras:
insane queue on stephen's green, think it's for jobs in londis! What in the name of god is going on? This is scary! on 12seconds.tv
And I snapped this walking home.
There is a story about it in The Irish Independent.
