Verizon Wireless plans to hire more than 400 full-time employees throughout the state this year, with most of the new jobs located in Huntsville, Alabama
“At Verizon, we know the incredible talent available throughout the state of Alabama and we are committed to offering a thriving work environment in which employees can learn, grow and use their talents and skills to contribute to the success of our dynamic business,” said Jonathan LeCompte, President of the Georgia/Alabama region for Verizon Wireless.
The company said that more than 300 of the available Alabama positions are for customer service-related workers in Huntsville, where the company operates its South Area
Call Center. Verizon also said it is filling retail positions in the Huntsville region, including Decatur, Madison, Florence, Guntersville and Cullman. It also is hiring people in Birmingham and Dothan, mostly in retail sales.
“Today’s announcement that Verizon will create over 400 jobs in Alabama is a testament to the strength of the pro-business climate we have worked hard to create in Alabama,” Governor Robert Bentley
said. “When successful companies are able to expand and create more jobs, Alabamians have an opportunity for a better future. Alabama’s relationship with Verizon is strong, and I look forward to a continued partnership with the company.”
“The city of Huntsville has enjoyed a long, thriving partnership with Verizon, and these new jobs will further bolster our economy and bring new people to our wonderful city, which is consistently named as one of the best cities to live and work,” Huntsville Mayor Battle said.
