Military-Friendly Company Hiring About 200 People
EL PASO - If you're one of the thousands of people without a job in El Paso, we have some good news. One local company is going to hire about 200 people, and the jobs are perfect for members of our growing military community.
The folks at Dial America are tele-marketers. They make and receive calls for some major U.S. companies. Right now Dial America employs 138 people in El Paso. Within the next four months, they're going to be adding about 200 jobs. Anyone can apply to work at the call center, but a lot of the employees have one thing in common.
"I got out of the military on November 21st," Adam Nelson said.
"I am former military and a military spouse," Helen Stricklin said.
Dial America is military friendly. That may not sound like a huge deal to a lot of people, but military folks know it's one thing a lot of employers take into consideration.
"You know you're going to get that hard worker that's dedicated to their job, but you don't know if they're going to have problems from the time they were in the military," Nelson said.
"When you're a military spouse you have to look at yourself, in a way, as a single parent," Stricklin said. "I can't really depend on my husband being there to be able to help with the kids."
Those are issues many military families face everyday, but workers at Dial America say the company is very understanding to their needs.
"They know if for some reason or another I have to be with my children because he can't, they're very understanding about it," Nelson said. "I've never had any type of concern where I didn't think I would be able to take care of my family at home."
"They definitely accepted me and gave me this job, this opportunity, to come into the civilian world to work," Nelson said.
As we stated above, you do not have to be military or former military to be considered for a job. The company is just military friendly.
