REDMOND, OR -- Consumer Cellular is hiring again for its Redmond call center. Several job fairs this week aim to find people to fill about 120 openings. Tiffany Smith tells KBND News the company continues to grow. "I’d say it’s pretty typical for what we’ve been hiring for. So far, we’ve been experiencing huge growth as a company. Not only here in Redmond are we hiring at that rate, but also in our Phoenix office, as well." She adds, "We’re hiring at about 30 every two weeks. Once we get to full staff, which we figure would be at about 120 positions, then we would just hire to [account for] any attrition we had." The call center has about 550 employees
Job fairs will be held at the Redmond center from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday, 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Smith says, "What we would do at the job fair, for those who are interested, if they could please apply to our website. When they’re here, we would actually do an on-site interview with them, give them a tour of the building, allow them to see what the job is all about, maybe listen to some phone calls that our current representatives would take." Positions are full time and include benefits.
