Cape Girardeau, MO, USA, Aug 23, 2017 -- AT&T will hire 150 people to staff its call center in Cape Girardeau, the company announced in a news release.
"More and more people in Missouri are turning to AT&T, and we want them to have the best experience," AT&T Missouri president John Sondag said. "We're investing in our networks, and people as part of that commitment. We're glad to welcome more Missourians to the AT&T family."
The call center at 351 S. Silver Springs Road is part of a larger hiring push that includes a call center in Springfield, Missouri, and retail opportunities, according to the release.
In total, AT&T plans to create more than 300 jobs across the state.
"We are seeing increased demand from consumers and businesses for applications and services supported by high-speed networks," state Rep. Kathy Swan (R-Cape Girardeau) said. "AT&T's investment in Missouri is helping stimulate job opportunities for our residents and economic growth for our state."
Some of the retail positions to be created also will be in Cape Girardeau and Sikeston, Missouri, while most others will be centered around St. Louis and Kansas City.
AT&T spokeswoman Katie Nagus said the jobs will be full time, and the company plans to continue hiring through the end of the year.
Applicants should be at least 18 years old, have experience using Microsoft Windows and availability to work a flexible schedule because call-center operations may vary.
This year, the company hired more than 230 Missouri residents in areas including call centers, retail, information technology, engineering and corporate support.
