They’ve already hit the ground running, and now the grand opening of Consumer Cellular in Redmond is looking to hire more employees, and soon.

 

Consumer Cellular President John Marick says they have 50 employees right now; some of them transferred in from the former T-Mobile business.

 

"And then we're anticipating 150 by the end of the year. So that kind of gets us starting, in terms of filling up this facility. And then that's just going to keep going for the next several years; we're anticipating getting to about 500-600 before we're done hiring here."

 

Marick says they will hold their first job fair at their Redmond facility on August 16th.  You can get more information by calling Consumer Cellular.

 

Consumer Cellular is the exclusive wireless provider for AARP members and a top-rated carrier that provides no contract cell phones and service plans to those over 50.
