Call center applicants getting anxious about jobs


News 12 at 11 o'clock / Tuesday, April 23, 2013

MARTINEZ, Ga. (WRDW) -- Jobs are hard to come by in today's economy, but that is about to change for Cyndee Koenig.

"There's just not a lot of opportunities out there," Koenig said.

And now that this opportunity is knocking, she is ready to open the door.

"You feel like you need to do something more than just clean the house, do the laundry or do the cooking," she told News 12.

When she heard about the new call center coming to the area, she was ready to answer.

"I just wanted to know how to get to the website so that I could apply for the position," she said.

But when she signed on, she felt closed off because she didn't see any open jobs posted.

And come Aug. 1, 200 people from across the Augusta area will be making their way into former Mike's Furniture & More building in Martinez.

Within the last month, Koenig's husband got his hours cut at work, meaning a cut in pay.

And with a son heading off to college soon, Koenig needs to make up every cent of that, plus some.

"That percentage would mean groceries for our family," she said.

Still, she's encouraged knowing a job might be waiting for her.

And for now, all she can do is enjoy spending time with the very people she's hoping the call center will help support.

"Anything you can do to help out your family, you do what you have to do, Koenig said. "It may not be what you want to do, but it's what you have to do."

The jobs have not been posted yet, but when they are, you can find them here.
