Rocky Mount call center to add 175 jobs

Posted February 24, 2010

— West Corp. plans to hire more than 175 full-time people for its Rocky Mount customer service call center, officials said Wednesday.

The Omaha, Neb.-based company said the new positions are the result of increased demand from a major cable television provider. The workers, who will earn $10 per hour plus incentives, will help callers with inquiries about existing cable accounts.

West plans to host job fairs from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. March 3-4 at the Rocky Mount employment office, at 1974 Stone Rose Drive. People also can apply at or in person from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays or 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays.

    if they require drug and backgrounds checks, west corp will need to find people from other areas that can pass these test. also when the sam's club opened in rocky mount, over 2500 applicants were interviewed. of those 2500 only 140 could pass the drug,background or honesty test. sam's had to transfer 20 to 25 employees from other sam's club just to have enough people to run the store.
