Company hires for customer service jobs in Chicago
Posted on September 8, 2015
Sprint is making a big push to hire for Chicago customer service jobs., among other positions.
Sprint will add more than 750 new jobs to neighborhoods throughout Chicago and an expected investment of nearly $150 million by the end of 2016. This builds on the 300 new jobs that Mayor Emanuel and Sprint announced in March 2015 when launching the Sprint® for Chicago initiative, which is dedicated to improving customer service and simplifying the brand experience. In total, Sprint expects to add more than 1,000 new jobs in Chicago by the end of 2016.
Sprint currently employs more than 800 employees and has more than 160 stores across Chicagoland. Today’s announcement not only doubles the company’s headcount but increases network spend from $45 million to nearly $150 million over the next two years in the city of Chicago and $250 million in Chicagoland.
“Sprint is doubling down on its commitment to Chicago by adding over one thousand jobs to our city’s economy and further investing in the infrastructure that is bringing both the jobs and the technology to power Chicago’s neighborhoods and communities for the 21stcentury,” said Mayor Emanuel.
In addition, the Active Transportation Director will propose new projects and coordinate the review of existing projects that enhance pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure. She will work directly with community and advocacy groups with a focus on spreading the benefits of new projects equally to all of Boston’s neighborhoods. Her work will complement Go Boston 2030 – the ongoing citywide mobility plan as well as Vision Zero and Green Links.
“The Public Works Department works with the Boston Transportation Department on joint initiatives designed to benefit all users of Boston’s local streets,” said Interim Commissioner of Public Works Michael Dennehy. “Stefanie’s extensive experience with transportation planning, design, construction, maintenance and operations will be a welcome addition on these initiatives.”
