Today AT&T* announced it is hiring for more than 100 full-time and part-time retail sales consultant and sales support representative positions across Tennessee. These positions are available in AT&T’s company owned retail (COR) stores and are a result of the continued expansion of AT&T’s growing wireless segment which also includes the remodeling and expansion of AT&T’s stores.
Potential candidates will focus first on delivering a respectful and expedient customer service experience while selling AT&T products and services, handling billing and account inquiries, processing payments, reviewing account activity, discussing rate plans and features, as well as troubleshooting and answering simple technical questions about smartphones and mobile services. Potential candidates will also educate consumers on the latest AT&T wired products available for purchase.
“It is great to see that companies like AT&T are bringing new jobs to our state,” said Tennessee Lieutenant Governor Ron Ramsey. “This news just reinforces that we must continue to make the volunteer state an attractive place for business investment, because it results in the creation of jobs.”
“When consumer demand for our products and services grows, so do employment opportunities,” said Gregg Morton, president, AT&T Tennessee. “We are proud to be making a contribution to the Tennessee economy during these difficult economic times and we look forward to continuing to provide world class products and services to Tennessee consumers and businesses.”
“It is always encouraging to see businesses making investments in Tennessee and creating jobs, particularly during these tough economic times,” said Tennessee House Speaker Kent Williams. “When we see encouraging news like this, it serves as a reminder that state and local leaders need to continue to make Tennessee a state that attracts business investment.”
AT&T employees are not only committed to providing unmatched customer service, but to giving back to their local communities. AT&T employees have the opportunity to participate with many organizations that AT&T proudly supports which include United Way, the Boys and Girls Clubs and more.
“Our customers are our number one priority, and I am confident the addition of these new jobs in our retail stores will enhance AT&T’s already solid reputation as a leader in customer service,” said Jim Thorpe, vice president and general manager of AT&T mobility and consumer markets, AT&T Tennessee and Kentucky. “In addition, we seek individuals equally passionate about customer service and new technologies who would enjoy helping people mobilize their lives for everywhere they live, work, and play.”
