Orbitz Worldwide And Aegis Plan To Hire Fort Hood U.S. Military Spouses At March 28 Job Fair

KILLEEN, Texas, March 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Orbitz Worldwide Inc. and Aegis, a global outsourcing services provider, today announced plans to hire United States military spouses at the upcoming Hiring Our Heroes Military Spouse Event on Fort Hood, TX. The companies will be interviewing for a number of customer service representative positions at Club Hood on Wednesday, March 28, 2012, from 7 a.m. to noon. The two companies recently announced a business partnership to hire a contact center team operating out of the Aegis center in Killeen, TX, that will provide service solutions for Orbitz Worldwide customers.

The customer service positions are ideal for military spouses with excellent communication skills who would enjoy competitive pay, fun activities, and performance incentives. Qualified candidates may apply to fill current openings such as Travel Care Professionals, Supervisors and Managers, and Trainers.

In February 2012, Orbitz Worldwide committed to the First Lady's Joining Forces Veterans Hiring Initiative to give U.S. service members and their families the opportunities and support they have earned, pledging to hire over 50 veterans or military family members in 2012 through its call centers and at-home agent programs.

"Orbitz is proud to have the opportunity through our partners at Aegis to hire and employ U.S. military family members," said Carolyne Matseshe-Crawford, Head of Global Contact Center Strategy Services. "This service center and its skilled and diverse employees from Fort Hood and Killeen will be a real asset to Orbitz and our customers."

Added Sandip Sen, President of Aegis, "Hiring military veterans and family members is nothing new for Aegis, and we are extremely proud to do so. We have several centers located close to U.S. military bases, and we are among the ten largest employers in nearly every U.S. city in which the company has operations. We are looking forward to partnering with Orbitz on this initiative."

Headquartered in Irving, TX, Aegis is a global business services and experience management company. Many of the world's leading brands trust Aegis with their customers and their brand equity.

The Killeen center represents Orbitz Worldwide's 19th global customer service center, and will be responsible for helping their millions of annual customers with booking and travel facilitation needs. It is expected that over 300 people from the Killeen community will be hired as a result of this call center partnership.
