Charter Communications, a Missouri-based cable and communications company, announced plans to hire more than 550 workers in the St. Louis region. Additionally, Charter is filling 185 jobs at its mobile call center in Kansas City, Missouri.
Charter’s open positions are in customer care, IT, retail stores, sales, and more. The company has already hired more than 3,000 employees nationwide after switching to so-called “virtual hiring” at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Charter has been at the forefront of using virtual hiring technology to recruit and screen candidates, so we were able to transition quickly and seamlessly to virtual hiring when this crisis started,” said Seth Feit, Group Vice President of Talent at Charter. “Through the effective use of virtual hiring practices, we have maintained a steady rate of hiring and as the country begins to resume office work, we are well-positioned to hire even more people in the many markets in which we operate.”
