Did you hear? Time Warner is hiring in Charlotte.
We like jobs, don't we?
Now maybe the company's customer service can stop sucking so bad.
Time Warner Cable said Monday it would add hundreds of jobs in Charlotte over the next three years and build its second U.S. data center to better handle video, data and voice traffic.
The country's second-largest cable operator said it will hire 225 new accounting, finance, engineering, IT and human resources workers by 2014 to qualify for up to almost $3 million in state grants linked to hiring and investment targets. The company must hire at least 64 workers by the end of 2012 under terms of its state incentives deal. Charlotte, the city's chamber of commerce and the state community college system are also adding sweeteners.
The new jobs will pay an average of $61,044, more than the Mecklenburg County average of $51,584. The company now employs nearly 2,800 people in the Charlotte area and more than 6,400 statewide.
