Global BPO services provider Alorica has pledged to create additional 600 full-time jobs at its facility in High Point, North Carolina. The company currently has 800 full-time positions at the said facility. Alorica spokesman Ken Muchè said it is also hiring at facilities in Kentucky, Indiana, New Mexico and Virginia. The pledge came months after Alorica announced plans to add more than 8,000 employees in the Philippines. Muchè said while its operations primarily handle phone calls, it also handles client emails and social media messages. He envisioned in the near future employees would be handling video chats.
