Jeff Walter says TruGreen is growing like a weed -- pun intended.
The company's director announced TruGreen
's Job Fair, to be held at the lawn care company's new call center at the Netpark office complex located at 5701 E. Hillsborough Ave. in Tampa on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012. Orientations will be held from 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and 2 to 2:30 p.m. The company plans to fill 175 sales positions and has immediate needs for inside sales, sales supervisors and management positions. Candidates should be professionally dressed with resumes and valid identification in hand, and be prepared to talk about their experience in sales.
"We are looking for highly engaged people to build a high-performing, diverse team," says Walter. "We are looking for people who can display core competencies as demonstrated in prior sales positions. And they need to be on board with TruGreen's core values: Honor God by doing the right thing; help people develop; grow profits and excel with the customer."
Walter explains that the new call center is a result of nationwide growth for the Memphis-based lawn care company, and that Tampa was chosen for the call center due to the area's own high-performing track record.
"We had opportunities in other areas," says Walter. "But we chose Tampa for two reasons: 1. We had a small regional center in Clearwater whose high performing staff we wanted to retain; and 2. Tampa has a very diverse recruitment population and a high concentration of contact centers. We knew we'd find the kind of employees we are looking for here."
The new contact center boasts an on-site gym, food court and on-campus daycare. New hires will receive three weeks of paid training. Seasonal sales associates will receive an hourly wage plus commission; management staff salary plus bonus. Minimum requirements for sales staff include a high school diploma or GED and six months' direct sales experience.
