APAC Customer Services will hold a career fair Nov. 6 to begin hiring for 300 new positions being added at the Davenport call center.

APAC said it plans to expand its workforce by year’s end. The majority of the new positions are customer service representatives, but it also has openings for leadership and management-related posts.

The center currently serves clients in the automotive, healthcare, publication and telecommunications industries. APAC now is part of the global company EGS.

“Being able to hire in this economy is an accomplishment in itself," said Scott Bonetti, the center's general manager. "To be able to hire for 300 benefit-eligible positions that will give back to our Quad-City community is something we are very pleased about.”

Quad-Cities Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Tara Barney said the chamber has worked many years with APAC, which provides more than 1,200 jobs in the area. "These new jobs will have a positive spin-off impact as people spend their paychecks on food, gas and entertainment.”

The career fair will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 6 at APAC's facility at 250 E. 90th St. Job-seekers may meet with hiring managers, tour the facility and learn more about career opportunities.

Applicants should have a minimum of six months of customer service experience, possess a high school diploma or GED, and be at least 18. To learn more about careers with APAC, visit www.apacjob.com.

They aren't what I call good jobs, but they are better than welfare. Barely. I can remember a QC with Case, IH, Deere, Cat, Herman Nelson (American Air Filter), Servus Rubber, and a half dozen window and lumber milling operations, plus bunches of small machine shops, plating operations, a ladder company, several window manufacturers. What we call the good old days. We are a microcosm of the whole country, we traded our industrial jobs for campaign contributions to Bill Clinton (China Trade Initiative). Yeah, I know, it isn't all Clinton's fault, but that is where the bulk of the damage was done.
