New Las Vegas call center to hire 100 workers; job fair set for Friday
8 November 2012
A company that manages call centers and has an existing operation in Las Vegas is opening a new facility that will hire 100 people.
Sitel Corp., which has more than 57,000 employees worldwide and is contracted to handle customer service calls for consumer electronics companies, plans a job fair Friday at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the company’s facility at 420 Pilot Road. Prospective employees should bring their resumes to the event.
Company officials did not name their new client but said it is “an award-winning company committed to providing safety, security, peace of mind and unparalleled service to (its) customers.”
Linda Chambliss, site director at Sitel in Las Vegas, said the company has a pay range of $9 to $13 an hour, with additional compensation for bilingual employees. Employees are reviewed for raises after three, six, 12 and 18 months.
The company also offers a work-at-home option for employees and is hiring some part-time help.
Prospective applicants also can apply in Sitel’s “Careers” section at sitel.com, and Chambliss said it would be beneficial to complete the form prior to Friday’s event.
Chambliss said Sitel plans to expand further in Las Vegas, an appealing location to Sitel customers because of the ease of getting direct flights from all parts of the country.
A diversified Canadian company, Onex Corp., controls privately held Sitel.
