Verizon officials said in a statement Monday that the company plans to hire more than 430 full-time employees in the state this year.
Officials say the company is hiring workers for more than 200 positions at call centers in Alpharetta and Milton, in north Fulton County. Aside from customer service, the company is also planning to fill network and information technology positions. Verizon is also hiring for mostly retail positions in the Augusta, Savannah, Macon and Albany areas.
Verizon officials say the company already employs more than 4,500 people in the state, and interested candidates may apply for positions online.
