VIDEO: New Call Center Brings Over 300 Jobs to Atlantic CityPosted:
ATLANTIC CITY - A new call center is bringing over 300 new jobs to Atlantic City.
The new contact center celebrated its grand opening at the Claridge Hotel on Park Place with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and facility tours.
Developers were looking to open the new call center in either Las Vegas or Atlantic City and decided on AC in large part due to a 3.27-million dollar per year tax credit they'll be receiving from the "Grow New Jersey Assistance Program."
"We use them to offset the cost of building here as opposed to somewhere else and they also provided incentives for the hiring and training of people so we will be able to apply for those where those particular people are qualified for those benefits," said Warren Golden, President of Netcast BPO Services. "They're generally in displaced casino workers and people who were on unemployment that we take off the rolls and that is what the incentives are made available for."
The 200-seat 24-hour call center will hire 330 employees in phases by 2016 and based on current and anticipated demand, the company could look to hire as many as 1,000 new employees by 2018.
