AT&T is expanding in the queen city in a big way. The call center needs 90 additional people.
New reps will handle incoming calls from customers about accounts and entertainment services like Direct TV and U-verse. Computer skills and sales experience are a plus, but not required. These are full time positions, with benefits -- including tuition reimbursement.
"It's a great incentive. I've worked here for thirty-two years and it was in place when I started thirty-two years ago. I took advantage of it and got my masters degree while I was working here," said Mike Haynes, with AT&T.
The hires are part of a labor agreement with the Communications Workers of America. That future plan entails an additional three thousand workers in our region.
There are about one hundred entry level positions up for grabs ... which can lead to other positions in the company like retail, technicians, engineering and corporate support.
