The call center, E-Tech, is offering positions in Nacogdoches following a partnership with a major insurance provider. There's one catch. Employees must be licensed life and health insurance agents.
East Texas learned that if that doesn't apply to you, E-Tech will help you meet the qualifications.
Computer, retail, and satellite companies make up just some of E-Tech's growing client list. The latest is a major insurance provider, kept confidential by E-Tech for now.
"I or legal purposes I'm not at liberty to release the name," Kaylene Eckels, E-Tech's vice president of global operations, said.
According to E-Tech, up to 60 employees are needed. Prime candidates will be those who are already licensed life and health insurance agents.
"If you already have your license you'll be a perfect candidate to begin our class with up on April 1," Eckels said. "If you don't have a license we can assist you with obtaining your license. We'll be doing that over the next couple of months and prepare you for our class that begins on April 1."
The incentive to give it a try is the higher pay scale than what's normally offered at the call center.
"Its pay is $12 an hour; however, with commissions we expect the average earner to earn about $15 an hour, with our top performers bringing in about 35,000 per year," Eckels said.
It's not uncommon for E-Tech to put out the word, on almost a monthly basis, that they're in need of additional employees. This is a large employer, and they have a lot of clients. As a specific need arises, they really need to double up on the effort.
Eckels is reaching out to the newly-opened Dallas office, but recruiters are concentrating efforts in Nacogdoches, Lufkin, and Rusk.
"And we are so blessed to have a diverse clientele and as their business needs so do the needs of E-Tech," Eckels said.
E-Tech positions come with a benefit plan that includes health insurance, tuition, and child and dependent care reimbursements. You can apply at E-Tech's website.
