A company is looking to hire about 600 people for a call center in northwestern Indiana.
Americall Group Inc. officials say it is hiring at its Hobart center is because of business growth with existing clients such as Sears and Comcast.
Company vice president Scott Amo told The Times of Munster that it has benefited from customers telling businesses they want to talk with service representatives in the United States rather than having their calls routed overseas.
Amo said the center's entry-level positions have starting pay of about $8.50 an hour, while about 60 managers will be hired at $12 to $15 an hour.
Amo told the Post-Tribune that he hopes the center can grow to about 1,200 people.
