COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Hiring for TD Bank's expansion plans is ramping up next month, as its Greenville call center opens with 70 people.
The call center is part of the bank's plans for a regional hub, announced last November. Bank officials say the center will employ about 260 workers by year's end and 550 employees once fully staffed.
They are among the 1,600 jobs the bank expects to add in South Carolina by 2016.
TD Bank acquired Greenville-based South Financial Group in 2010. Last month marked a year since all signs at the 103 Carolina First branches across the Carolinas were converted to TD Bank. That includes 77 stores in South Carolina.
Renovation is underway at the bank's Greenville campus. Call center employees will move into their permanent space there in January.
