West Businesses Services is hiring again in San Antonio.

The sales and account management solutions provider plans to add 300 full-time employees at its San Antonio call-center operation by early June.

The expansion of West Business Services' San Antonio workforce is in response to additional business from two clients in the financial services sector, spokesman David Pleiss said Tuesday.

Since September, parent company West Corp. and related companies have announced plans to fill about 2,100 positions in the San Antonio area.

In January, West Business Services announced it would hire 275 people in the current quarter for inside sales and account management services to Fortune 1000 companies.

Last month, the parent company announced plans to hire more than 300 people at its Universal City facility after securing a leading wireless communications service provider as a new client. West is a communication services provider.

Once it fills the latest openings, the companies will employ about 3,000 people locally. West is nearing its peak employment level of about 3,100 people locally, set about five years ago, Pleiss said.

For its newest hires, West seeks to hire licensed and nonlicensed insurance agents who have a minimum of three months of call center and sales experience. Wages range from $9 to $12 an hour, plus medical and dental insurance, a 401(k) plan, paid time off, paid training and tuition reimbursement.

Those interested can apply at the San Antonio office at 11330 Interstate 10 West, Building 3000, during business hours or online at westbusinessservices.jobs.
West, which has been privately held since 2006, has plans to go public again. However, a company official indicated last month an offering is not imminent. West had 33,400 employees companywide at the end of last year.
