Evansville call center to hire more than 500

AT&T Inc. announced this morning that it will open a Cingular Wireless call center in Evansville that will employ more than 500.

The $22 million center will serve wireless customers in AT&T’s Business Marketing Group. Neither a location for the 75,000-square-foot project nor an opening date was included in the announcement.

In February, AT&T said it would hire 425 call center workers in downtown Indianapolis at an average wage of about $40,000.

San Antonio-based AT&T took over Cingular a year ago as part of its acquisition of BellSouth.
