Stream to hire 500 for Sgt. Bluff, IA call centerShare on Twitter
We told you last month about the layoff of 250 people at a Siouxland call center. Now, those people might be able to get their jobs back.
Stream Global Services announced today they're looking to hire 500 people in its Sergeant Bluff, Iowa technical support call center.
The company told us two weeks ago they needed to lay-off staff because of a drop in one major client. But they've added additional gaming platform services for one of their existing consumer electronics clients to the site. "Today's announcement is another indication of Stream's commitment to Sergeant Bluff and to the broader Siouxland region," said Chris McGowan, President, Siouxland Chamber of Commerce. "It is also confirmation of the private sector's recognition that Stream's trained and talented workforce is capable of providing a variety of service programs to multiple companies and industries."
Stream handles customer service and support calls for several national and international clients... including Apple, Nike and Sirius-XM satellite radio.
