Albany - A new Albany Call center will add hundreds of new jobs to the community. But the sky is the limit as far as the number of jobs that could be created. The ribbon was cut Thursday at the Senior Life Insurance company's call center.
It's in the former Nypro building on Oakhaven Drive. Even though it rained during the celebration, Mayor Willie Adams said the sun was shining because of Senior Life's decision to open the call center in Albany.
Already, about 200 people have been hired to work for the company, with plans to add up to another 300, but that's not necessarily the limit. President Ron Powell said, "In Macon, Georgia, there's a call center that's similar to what we're doing here in a different market, that's got over 4000 individuals on the telephones, so it's our goal to grow right here in Albany as large as we possibly can."
Senior Life Insurance is based in Thomasville. The company is licensed in 21 states and plans to open another eight to ten facilities in the next few years. Applications are being accepted right now for open positions. Call 229-228-6936 ext. 210 for more information.
