News : Home Depot Hiring Hundreds For Customer Service Hub In Tempe
Tempe, AZ, USA, July 29, 2016 -- Home Depot opened an 111,000 square-foot service center in Tempe last Fall to provide customer service support for products bought online. Its goal was to hire 800 employees. So far, 500 have come on board. Starting in August, the company is looking for 100 more.
Home Depot picked Tempe as a call-center location because of its proximity to ASU as a good recruiting base for employees.
"Tempe is a mecca of call centers, and that’s not really widely known, but there’s actually many, many, many call centers within a five mile radius of where our center is," said Kera Fresquez, Senior Human Resources Manager of the Tempe Contact Center.
Home Depot, along with Target, JPMorgan Chase, State Farm Insurance, Macy’s, Xerox, Dish Network, and GoDaddy all list service center employment opportunities in Tempe.
