AT&T hiring more than 1,800 positions in Texas

From AT&T Corporate Communications:

DALLAS, TX — AT&T today announced it is seeking applicants for more than 1,800 jobs that are now open throughout Texas. The positions include technicians to help with U-verse installation, customer service representatives for the company's call centers and hundreds of openings at retail stores.

"AT&T employs more than 35,000 Texans, and it is an exciting time to start a career with a leading company in one of the most dynamic industries in America," said Dave Nichols, AT&T's state president in Texas.

"From 2010 through 2012, AT&T invested more than $7.0 billion in its Texas wireless and wireline networks, and the backbone of that service are our people who work to ensure that Texans enjoy a great wireless communications experience," Nichols said.

U-verse Premises Technicians are responsible for the installation and customer care of U-verse integrated digital TV, high speed Internet and voice services.

Customer Service Representatives, who work in call centers, are responsible for sales and support for new and existing AT&T customers.

In addition, AT&T in several Texas cities is hiring for positions in its retail stores, including Retail Sales Consultants and Retail Store Managers.

AT&T is filling these positions immediately. AT&T offers excellent benefits that include paid training, medical, dental and vision.

In April, AT&T announced it is stepping up its veteran recruiting efforts with the goal of hiring 5,000 veterans into career opportunities over the next five years across the U.S. Texas-based veterans are encouraged to visit AT&T's online veteran career site, which includes tools for veterans to match their military skills with AT&T jobs. AT&T has a military talent attraction manager who focuses on military recruitment. And the company has the Careers for Veterans program where AT&T Veterans provide job search advice to help thousands of newly transitioning veterans optimize their career searches.

AT&T recently launched Project Velocity IP (VIP), a three-year investment plan to expand and enhance its wireless and wireline IP broadband networks. As part of Project VIP, AT&T plans to increase the density of its wireless network by deploying more than 10,000 macro sites, more than 1,000 distributed antenna systems, and more than 40,000 small cells. Through this initiative, we also plan to:

• Expand 4G LTE to cover more than 300 million people by year-end 2014

• Expand the AT&T wired IP network to approximately 57 million customer locations, covering about 75 percent of customer locations in its wired service area by year-end 2015

• Expand the AT&T fiber network to reach 1 million additional business locations by year-end 2015

For more information about AT&T's coverage in Texas or anywhere in the U.S., consumers can visit the AT&T Coverage Viewer. Using the online tool, AT&T customers can measure coverage quality of coverage from a street address, intersection, ZIP code or even a landmark.
