Sitel Group to hire 400 employees at Georgia call center

By The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Outsource service provider Sitel Group says it will hire 400 new employees at its Augusta call center starting this month.

The company said Tuesday it plans to host an on-site career fair June 11 at its inbound call center between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Sitel spokeswoman Amy Hinson tells The Augusta Chronicle the new positions are being created because the company is serving a new client.

Hinson says the facility currently employs 500.

The company's positions start at $12 an hour and include health benefits and a 401(k) retirement plan. Sitel also offers a scholarship educational program. Employees must also be at least 18 and have a high school diploma or GED. Company officials say the hiring process will also include a criminal background check.
