News : Parent Company of Ugg, Teva Opening Call Center in Broomfield
Broomfield, CO, USA, July 5, 2016 -- The parent company of footwear brands Ugg and Teva is planning a call center in Broomfield that could employ up to 250 people during the busy holiday season.
Deckers Brands, based in Goleta, Calif., is moving a call center to Broomfield from Flagstaff, Ariz.
Company spokeswoman Mary Oeffling said negotiations are still underway for space at 11525 Main St., next door to TIAA, Ctgy and Mercer Investments.
Oeffling said Broomfield was chosen because of the area’s "great workforce and ability to flex."
"There’s a strong candidate pool (there) with right skill set and ability to grow in the area," she said.
The center will be open by August. Peak employment this year will reach 150, ramping up to 250 within a few years. The majority of those workers will be full time, Oeflling said.
Salaries for the workers have not been disclosed, but a recruiter for the company told BizWest last week that the pay will be competitive. Online job listing site Glassdoor.com shows entry level call center positions averaging $11 to $15 an hour nationally, with supervisors starting around $50,000 on average.
