The new positions are expected to support Charter's broadband service, Spectrum, which offers television, internet and voice services. It is also looking for field technicians and direct-sales representatives.
"Our goal is to recruit and retain talented team members who are dedicated to fulfilling Spectrum's commitment to providing customers with superior TV, internet and voice products backed by outstanding service," said Dave Rossignol, director of customer service at the Portland site, which is at 901 Washington Ave.
Nationally, Stamford, Conn.-based Charter Communications plans to hire 20,000 people, thereby "returning call center jobs to the U.S., in-sourcing its workforce and growing to meet customer demand," the company said in a news release.
New hires will receive paid comprehensive training, competitive wages and benefits, including medical, 401(k), tuition reimbursement and free/discounted Spectrum services.
