Many of these companies just say that they are hiring and really are just looking for a few employess. I've contact some of the businesses in my area and they say that the headquarters always posts job openings but that they're not hiring. It's free advertising for these businesses. In this economy they are also laying off people, yet they say that they're hiring to give themselve a fabulous positive public image.
