Northwest side employer Concentrix in major hiring push
More than 170 positions to be filled; Council members encouraging residents to apply; Jan. 7 career fair set for prospective applicants
A growing business solutions company on the city’s far northwest side is looking to hire more than 170 workers soon, and Common Council members are urging individuals to apply online at their earliest opportunity.
Alderman Jim Bohl, whose 5th Aldermanic District is home to Concentrix – located in the Park Place office park at 11301 W. Lake Park Dr. on the city’s far northwest side – said the full-time positions will pay $27,000 to $36,000 per year to start with opportunities for advancement.
“Concentrix is experiencing growth that requires the hiring of more than 100 people very soon, and I believe the company’s location makes it particularly attractive to applicants who live nearby and dread a long job commute downtown or elsewhere,” Alderman Bohl said.
Alderwoman Chantia Lewis, whose 9th District borders Park Place to the north and east, said the company will be conducting hiring classes set to meet (roughly) every two weeks. “The positions will require individuals to provide product support and information, as well as some trouble-shooting and research. If you have experience and enjoy working with customers and the public, then Concentrix may be the right fit for you,” she said.
Working with technology and a top brand are also attractive features that prospective Concentrix applicants should consider, according to Alderman Cavalier Johnson, whose 2nd Aldermanic District lies nearby Park Place.
“Job opportunities involving cool technology and providing trouble-shooting advice and service have often been concentrated downtown or in other locations closer to the city’s core,” Alderman Johnson said. “Concentrix is offering those opportunities in close proximity to my constituents and to an overall large workforce base on the northwest side.”
