AT&T announced that the company is seeking applicants to fill more than 120 jobs around Ohio, including technician positions in the Toledo area and more than 70 call center positions in Brecksville, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton and Youngstown. An open house/hiring event will be held on Saturday, Mar. 7 for applicants interested in the Brecksville call center positions. That event will take place at the AT&T Cleveland Call Center, 45 Erieview Plaza, Cleveland, 44114, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This comes as the company totals its 2013 and 2014 hires in Ohio at more than 1,730. Positions filled in the past two years included IT/engineering, retail, technician, call center, business solutions, and corporate support categories.
The hiring reflects AT&T's continuing investment in its Ohio network and team. The company made more than 830 upgrades to its wireless network in Ohio in 2014, including the launch of service for former Alltel subscribers in more than 20 northern Ohio counties. The integration of former Alltel towers into the upgraded network increased AT&T's cell towers in these areas of Ohio by nearly 40 percent. AT&T invested more than $1.6 billion in its wireless and wired networks in Ohio between 2011 through 2013.
"I'm pleased to hear that AT&T is continuing to offer good-paying jobs and benefits to more Ohioans, and that the company continues to expand and enhance their broadband network infrastructure here," said Armond Budish, Cuyahoga County Executive. "Having access to fast, strong, reliable wireless technology translates into more job opportunities and helps us all work smarter and stronger."
AT&T jobs are among the best in the world and full- and part-time positions include competitive wages and benefits. AT&T is committed to and has been recognized for diversity and veteran recruiting, and has doubled its hiring goal for veterans and their family members to 10,000 over a five year period, consistent with its commitment to equal employment opportunities.

"As AT&T continues to expand its customer base in Ohio and invest in our network, we're pleased to have the opportunity to welcome more Ohioans to the AT&T family," said Adam Grzybicki, President of AT&T Ohio. "The hundreds already hired and those soon to be hired will help us continue to provide the high level of service our customers have come to expect."
