On Saturday (Dec. 5), Heartland Recreational Vehicles LLC in Elkhart, Ind., held a job fair to fill 200 positions that are opening up at the beginning of 2010.

This is just the beginning of the hirings: 200 more jobs will be filled in March.

The company announced last month that sales were up.

After a rough year for Heartland, with falling sales and a lawsuit settled out of court with Jayco, Heartland says these new hirings will bring the company’s work force total to 1,200 employees.
