Thousands of people headed to Queens Wednesday and Thursday for a chance to work at the U.S. Open later this summer.

The U.S. Tennis Association held a job fair at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows.

Organizers said they were looking to fill about 6,000 temporary jobs, including cooks, cashiers, security workers and customer service representatives.

"This is really a great opportunity for people to come, meet our team, for us to meet the community, partner with the community and really try to make this a great event for 2014," said David Konecky of the USTA.

"I come every year for the past five years, and this is the best job I ever had," said Angel Jimenez, a job applicant. "A sure job that I know and is awesome. The bosses are awesome, the supervisors are awesome. They treat you very good."

The U.S. Open starts August 25 and runs through September 8.
