At a Clearwater shopping center, just steps away from Publix and Office Depot, construction is underway on a new bank branch near the intersection of Gulf to Bay Boulevard (S.R. 60) and Belcher Road.
The bank that is moving in: JPMorgan Chase
. While an official date has not been announced for its opening, Chase has already begun its search for employees for the new banking center.
Daisy Cabrera, who handles Chase's media relations for Florida, says the company will be filling three positions at the new branch in Clearwater.
"We are currently hiring three tellers, one full-time and two part-time," Cabrera says. She goes on to explain what employees can expect from the bank as an employer. "JPMorgan Chase is proud to sponsor a range of programs and services that benefit our employees, help them improve their skills and grow in their career," Cabrera says.
In an industry, such as the financial sector, which has been hit so hard by the economic downturn, many banks in the state have shut their doors over the past few years. So how has Chase been able to succeed in Florida during this difficult and challenging economic time?
For Chase, it comes down to understanding what customers want and finding the right location. "Knowing that the top reason why people choose a bank is its locations, we continue to build and expand our footprint of almost 250 branches and 1,100 ATMs in Florida," Cabrera says.
