Cedar Rapids Company Looking To Hire Dozens
By Justin Foss, Reporter
CEDAR RAPIDS - In the last few months, when was the last time you've heard someone say they were confident about their job.
"I'm not worried about my job," said 22-year-old Don Schminkey. Schminkey comes to work each day at PRC, knowing he will get a paycheck.
PRC is a national call center company with locations in Cedar Rapids and Ames. PRC is expanding and looking for more workers.
"We see people coming in here for interviews all the time, so it's nice seeing that we are hiring people instead of firing people," said Schminkey.
PRC says it needs to hire an additional 35 workers by next week. The pay is around $10 an hour, plus or minue some. The hours change, but there are no overnights.
PRC says it is hiring because the companies it works with are doing well in this economy.
"One of our largest clients throughout PRC is a satellite provider, I won't name their name here, and they actually saw some of the largest growth they've seen during Q4 of last year," said V.P of Operations in Cedar Rapids, Mike Hoff.
Hoff said some of the jobs are sales, and all involve work on the phone. And they do offer health insurance options.
PRC says it knows not everyone will fit in at the company... but says its looking for people ready to work, and ready to learn.
Schminkey said since coming here four months ago, he's been able to sleep well every night.
The number to apply is 319-390-8900.
