News : Call Center Ramping Up
Windsor, ON, Jan 13, 2015 -- A few months after announcing it would locate its 12th Canadian call centre in Windsor, HGS Canada is finally hiring workers.
Interviews are underway at the company’s temporary location in Tecumseh Mall for the first 120 workers who will start training February 2. The company plans to hire a second cohort next month. By this fall, the company hopes to have 600 workers in Windsor including 200 in management positions.
HGS Canada President Ross Beatty says they’re looking for employees who want to move up the ranks. "On our front lines, they’ll start off at $11.50 an hour," he says. "All of the leadership positions which are also management positions will range from approximately $28,000 to $100,000 (a year)."
The company is investing in renovations in its permanent location at the former Zeller’s in Tecumseh Mall. Beatty says its connection to bus routes across the city made it an attractive location.
Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens believes the investment will provide surrounding businesses a much-needed economic boost after the loss of both Zeller’s and Sobey’s in the area.
