Universal Health Care Hiring 70 Bi-Lingual Phone Reps

If you speak Spanish and English, and are looking for employment, Universal Health is hiring.

Universal Health Care is actively recruiting member services representatives for its St. Petersburg call center. 

"We currently have about 200 people in member services," says Michael Holohan, Universal's chief operating officer. "We’re hoping to fill a class of 18 bilingual people."

Holohan says the current hiring is part of a long-range plan to ensure more of the staff is bilingual. "Our demographic of the senior population we serve is about 10 percent Spanish speaking. So we're always looking for bilingual people to provide service to them. We employ about 700 people at our corporate headquarters. We’re looking to, over time, have 10 percent of those people be bilingual. In every recruiting class we have, we’re looking for 10 percent of the individuals who have bilingual skills."

Founded by licensed geriatrician and physician Dr. A.K. Desai in 2002, Universal provides managed care services for government sponsored health care programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. The company was voted one of TampaBay.com's Top 10 Workplaces in Tampa Bay in 2011. Career benefits include health, dental, vision, 401(k) and free gym membership. Interested candidates must be detail and customer service oriented and able to read and write in Spanish.
