A call center planning to open next month in Eugene is hiring up to 250 people. Chris Autry, Site Director for Firstsource Solutions says the company is a businesses process outsourcer.
They're looking to hire people to provide live web-chat services to telecommunications customers. Autry says they want employees with good people skills.
Autry: "They need to be able to show empathy and build a relationship online. Since they're going to be doing work via live chat, they're going to need to have good familiarity with computers, good keyboarding skills and good grammatical and punctuation skills."
Entry level pay is $10 an hour. The jobs are full time with benefits. The new center will be located on Chad Drive in Eugene in the former Chambers Communication Building.
