(WHAS11) -- On March 14, GE Appliances opened an online application  process to fill 230 manufacturing production positions needed to support the continued growth and new product launches at Appliance Park.

But applying online quickly turned some people off.

GE started their online application process at 6:30 Wed. morning but when you typed in their website it said they were having problems.

GE spokeswoman Kim Freeman says they fixed the issue. KentuckianaWorks opened six locations to help with computer access.

In just a couple hours, GE was flooded and their max of 10,000 online applications done.

Gary Wise, Kentuckiana Works: "Once they reached that maximum number they shut the website down and that happened a little after 8:00," said Gary Wise with KentuckianaWorks.

GE will start producing the Bottom Freezer at the end of March. Jobs will pay roughly $13 an hour with healthcare and retirement benefits.

With an unemployment rate at 8.8 percent in Ky. many are looking for work.

GE says those who qualify will have interviews and testing in weeks and could start by May.
