Accenture set to hire in Athens

Accenture to fill 120 positions by June 5
By Cristin Ross
Calling all those looking for a job.
The Athens East Texas Workforce Center and AppleOne Employment Services have teamed up in a race against time, to fill at least 120 customer service rep and at least 20 management positions by June 5.
“We have to begin the intensive training June 5, so we’re looking to have everyone interviewed, evaluated and by then,” said AppleOne regional manager Ron Griffin. “We’ve seen a lot of quality people today (Thursday), but we still have a lot of ground to make up to get every position filled.”
AppleOne, out of Richardson — the largest privately owned employment service in North America — was contracted to fill the openings at the new Accenture calling center opening soon in the old K-Mart building on West Corsicana Street in Athens.
“This really puts Athens on the map,” said Athens ETWC manager Ray Williams.
Jobs available include the customer service representatives who would be answering inbound calls concerning the enrollment, benefit information and claims of certain state insurance programs; customer service supervisors; quality assurance specialists; training specialists; and human resources generalists.
“We’re looking for people with good phone skills,” Griffin said. “These are not telemarketing positions. Our people will only be answering calls, not making them.”
Anyone interested in applying for a position with Accenture or any other job listed with the workforce center can go to the center, 205 N. Murchison St., Suite 101, in Athens. Those seeking Accenture jobs must go to the Athens center, which plans to stay open until 7 p.m. on May 23-25 to better accommodate job-seekers.
The office will also be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on May 22; and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 26; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 30-31. Anyone wishing to apply for a job at the center needs to bring a resume, their Social Security card, a valid picture ID and be prepared to fill out a traditional application.
Three weeks of intensive training for Accenture jobs begins June 5.
