NEW AT&T TELEMARKETING CENTER TO EMPLOY 90 PEOPLE IN DOWNTOWN MINNEAPOLIS

 MINNEAPOLIS, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T today announced that it will employ 90 people at a new telemarketing service center in downtown Minneapolis.
 The new center, which will be located in the AT&T Tower at 901 Marquette Ave., will serve as the national service center for a new rewards program for AT&T 800 Service customers, also announced today.
 "We're delighted to bring this new center and new jobs to Minneapolis," said Larry Newman, vice president for AT&T and first vice chair of the Greater Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce. "Economic development is a priority for our community, and we're pleased to make a positive contribution."
 The new center will serve customers participating in AT&T's Partners in Business(SM) Program, which allows 800 Service customers to earn points redeemable for advanced 800 features, call-center training, consulting services and advertising.
 The program, the first of its kind in the 800 industry, is designed to help customers boost their growth and profitability while thanking them for doing business with AT&T.
 Employees at the Partners in Business service center will help customers to enroll in the program, answer customer inquiries, and assist customers in redeeming points. The center will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday.
 Newman said AT&T selected Minneapolis for the new center because of the quality of the work force, the central U.S. location, and available space in the AT&T Tower, among other factors.
 Most of the jobs available at the new center are telemarketing sales representative positions, which offer a starting wage of $250.50 a week, with the opportunity to earn more than $500 a week after four years of seniority. Medical and dental benefits, life insurance, paid vacation and tuition assistance are also provided.
 People who are interested in a telemarketing sales representative position, and have good oral communication skills and customer contact and/or sales experience, can call AT&T's applicant processing center at 800-562-7288.
