In Chattanooga, HomeServe said it is hiring 30 people for its call center operations beginning in March, with plans to increase that number to 100 within a year to 18 months, according the the Times Free Press.
HomeServe, which provides emergency home repair services, said pay for inbound customer service workers will range from $12 to $15 per hour plus commission and a sign-on bonus.
