Frontier Communications, a leading provider of broadband, high-speed Internet, video, phone and data security services, announced recently that it is hiring a large number of temporary employees, as well as renovating part of its facility at 919 Lumber St. in Myrtle Beach, to support the hiring initiative.
The latest hiring at the Myrtle Beach facility reflects Frontier’s growth. In January the company hired 37 regular, full-time employees in Myrtle Beach and is in the process of hiring 80 temporary employees.
“It’s a great day in Horry County as we are excited to announce that one of our existing industries is expanding,” said Josh Kay, MBREDC President & CEO. “We are thrilled the Frontier Communications management team sees Horry County as the best place to expand its operations and that they will be hiring more County residents. Frontier is a great partner and we look forward to working closely with them for years to come.”
“This expansion will improve the customer experience and contribute to economic development in this region, where Frontier already has a strong presence,” said Marcy Fox, general manager for Frontier in South Carolina.
The manager for the offline center, Barb Pratt, added that customers and Frontier staff will benefit from the changes. “The added staff will enable us to better serve our customers, and the enhanced work space will help improve productivity and provide a stimulating and comfortable environment for our employees. We are excited about these new opportunities for employees, customers and the greater Myrtle Beach economy,” Pratt said.
In addition to area economic growth that comes with the new jobs, Myrtle Beach will continue to benefit from Frontier’s focus on community enrichment. Employees are members of the local Chamber of Commerce and volunteer in numerous community organizations.
Frontier is currently accepting applications for the temporary positions, which include customer service representatives. Applications may be submitted online at www.Frontier.com/careers.
