In one of the largest calls for new employees in some time, AT&T says it needs to fill 1,800 jobs open throughout Texas. This includes U-verse installation technicians, customer-service representatives and retail positions.
"From 2010 through 2012, AT&T invested more than $7 billion in its Texas wireless and wireline networks, and the backbone of that service are our people who work to ensure that Texans enjoy a great wireless communications experience," said Dave Nichols, AT&T's state president in Texas.
AT&T is filling these positions immediately. Company benefits include paid training, medical, dental and vision.
In April, the carrier announced a goal of hiring 5,000 veterans for career opportunities over the next five years across the U.S.
