Massachusetts-headquartered Agero Inc. has said it will hire hundreds of new employees in 2014 across its four regional sites, including its Canadian call centre in Sault Ste. Marie.
Agero provides vehicle and driver safety, security, and information services, including roadside assistance, consumer affairs, and claims management services. Aside from the Sault site, the company has regional offices in Tennessee, Florida and Arizona.
There has been no indication how many people will be hired specifically at the Sault site.
The company said the hiring spree was a response to customer demand fuelled by the proliferation of mobile devices.
“Our associates are an integral part of the Agero roadside assistance experience,” company CEO Dave Ferrick said in a statement.
“We need people who can demonstrate the utmost professionalism while working to aid drivers who are often in highly stressful situations. With demand for our services increasing, we are thrilled to be hiring hundreds of high-quality personnel across our four regional service centres.”
