MCI EXPANDS TO PROVIDE 220 NEW JOBS IN GREENVILLE, S.C. GREENVILLE, S.C., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- MCI Telecommunications Corporation will expand its customer service and sales operations in Greenville to create an additional 220 new jobs through 1993, the company announced today. Due to the success of MCI's Friends & Family and related consumer products and services, MCI plans to hire 175 people to support its customer sales programs and 45 people to work in management and support positions. MCI's Greenville office is located at Patewood Plaza IV, 50 International Drive, Greenville, 29615. Friends & Family enables callers to earn an additional, across- the-board, 20-percent savings when calling other MCI customers in a Calling Circle. Friends & Family has attracted millions of customers since its introduction in March 1991 and has garnered marketshare away from its long distance competitors, with a majority of those customers leaving AT&T for MCI. "MCI has expanded operations in several cities across the country over the last few years, and we are very proud to include Greenville in our growth," said Gerald H. Taylor, president, MCI Consumer Markets. "By enlarging our operation in Greenville, MCI is providing increased customer service and sales information for MCI's residential products and services," Taylor added. "Greenville's relationship with MCI has been a very prosperous one. We look forward to growing with MCI now and in the future and providing additional jobs for the people of Greenville and the surrounding areas," said Greenville Mayor Bill Workman. Sen. Fritz Hollings (D-S.C.) stated, "MCI has made a wise choice by adding 200 new jobs to its Greenville customer service center." Hollings continued, "I applaud MCI's continued interest and expansion in our best resources -- the people of this state." MCI currently employs approximately 350 employees throughout South Carolina who work in sales and marketing, customer service, finance and systems engineering. The Patewood Plaza IV location will expand its square footage by approximately 20,000 square feet for a total of 83,000 square feet. MCI Communications Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: MCIC), headquartered in Washington, is the nation's second largest long distance provider.
