Consumer Cellular and Sears have announced the expansion of their partnership with the introduction of new products.

 

These products include two new phone options: a Smartphone and a new easy to use "senior phone" with larger screen and buttons. Both can be found at Sears.

 

Consumer Cellular President and CEO John Marick says:  " We’ve had our phones in Sears for about 1 1/2 years now and that partnership is working really well. It’s a great place for our customers to go in and purchase a phone, and based on some of that past success, we've expanded out. We’ve just launched a new smartphone in sears for people that are interested in that end of the spectrum. And then on the other end, we have our senior phones, a big-button- big screen phone that launched as well. It’s called a Doro Phone Easy 618."

 

That phone also has a camera and soft touch coating.

 

Their product's popularity is growing by leaps and bounds, and that mean hiring more people for the Redmond Call Center.  "We couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the employees that we've been able to acquire there in Redmond. We’re at about 180 employees right now and hiring about 30 a month, so the hiring's been going really well there."

 

 He says if you enjoy helping people, they may have a job for you.
