(News release) - AT&T today announced that the company will hire workers for more than 50 jobs in Arkansas, including more than 30 new jobs. The positions include openings at retail stores, technicians to help with U-verse installation, and sales consultants and customer service representatives for the company’s call centers. AT&T already has hired about 430 Arkansans so far this year.
“AT&T continues to expand its customer base in Arkansas and invest in our network to ensure we are providing the high level of service customers have come to expect,” said Ed Drilling, AT&T’s state president in Arkansas. “As part of our commitment to this level of customer service and to support our growth in Arkansas, we are pleased to have the opportunity to welcome more than 50 Arkansas residents to the AT&T family.”
AT&T is filling these positions immediately. AT&T offers competitive wages and excellent benefits that include paid training, medical, dental and vision.
AT&T currently employs nearly 2,400 employees throughout Arkansas and consistently hires new talent. AT&T is regularly recognized for training and development programs that are among the best in the country, and invested about $280 million training employees and about $26.6 million in tuition aid during 2012. AT&T is committed to and has been recognized for diversity and veteran recruiting.
AT&T announced earlier this year that it has invested more than $90 million in its Arkansas wireless and wireline networks during the first half of 2013. The network investment is part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan announced last fall to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. AT&T invested more than $700 in its Arkansas wireless and wired networks from 2009 through 2012.
“Fast, reliable connectivity is essential to both quality of life and competitiveness at work,” said Ed Drilling, president of AT&T Arkansas. “No one understands that better than we do, and no one is doing more than AT&T to mobilize a world that works for people in Arkansas. With initiatives like Project VIP, we continue to deploy fiber optic cable deeper and deeper into the network and we’re working to ensure that Arkansas consumers, schools and businesses remain at the leading edge of broadband services.”
