Consumer Cellular, the number one rated cellphone service for the fourth consecutive year and exclusive wireless provider for AARP members, officially surpassed the 1,000 full-time employee milestone this month. The company plans to continue hiring at its three call center locations to serve its growing, nationwide subscriber base effectively.
Consumer Cellular operates call centers at its Portland headquarters as well as in facilities in Phoenix, Ariz. and Redmond, Ore. Continued hiring at each location has allowed the rapidly growing carrier to handle an increasing volume of calls for new service, new phone orders and customer service consultations. The practice played a crucial role in enabling the carrier to reach its one-million subscribers milestone in February 2013.
“At Consumer Cellular, it’s all about the people. We are thrilled to have such a smart, dedicated and engaged workforce; they truly are the drivers behind all of the success we’ve seen within the past several years,” said John Marick, CEO of Consumer Cellular. “We are proud to be a thriving source of job creation in each of our local communities, and we will continue to hire in order to further support local economies, their residents and the growing Consumer Cellular subscriber base.”
Consumer Cellular has 270 employees at the Phoenix location, 460 in Redmond and 280 in Portland. The company expects to continue hiring in each location throughout 2014 in order to provide its growing customer base, expected to reach 1.75 million by year’s end, with continued exceptional customer support.
