600 jobs come calling
From the The Halifax Herald Limited:
More than 600 new jobs are coming to Cape Breton, many offering support to the American satellite radio company Sirius Satellite Radio.
Stream, a Texas company specializing in technical support and customer service, announced the new positions for its Glace Bay contact centre Monday.
About 200 of the positions are seasonal, as the company often experiences a spike in business over the holidays, a Stream spokeswoman said Tuesday.
"Holidays tend to be gift-giving time, and people need to turn on the products (they received), that sort of thing," Katherin Dockerill said.
