Orbitz Worldwide And Aegis Hire Over 200 Veterans And Military Family Members In 2012

KILLEEN, Texas, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the nation looks to celebrate Veterans Day, Orbitz Worldwide and its customer experience partner Aegis announced today that they have hired over 200 United States armed service veterans and military family members for customer service representative positions at Aegis's Killeen, Texas center.

In February, Orbitz Worldwide committed to the First Lady's Joining Forces Veterans Hiring Initiative, and initially pledged to hire 50 veterans and military family members in 2012 through its call centers and at-home agent programs. While their original goal has already been far surpassed, Orbitz hopes to continue hiring. "The military community provides a strong talent pool of attractive candidates. We have experienced that veterans and military family members are skilled and dynamic individuals, and their commitment to customer service improves the travel experience for our millions of global customers," said Barney Harford, CEO of Orbitz Worldwide.

"Aegis is proud to hire military veterans and their families, and we are equally proud to partner with our clients to help them accomplish their goals," said Sandip Sen, CEO of global customer lifecycle management for Aegis. "We have several contact centers located close to U.S. military bases, and these areas give us access to exceptional labor pools. Military veterans and their families comprise a well-rounded, tech-savvy, and well-traveled work force with a strong desire to serve. Their work ethic is an inspiration to our global work force."

Orbitz and Aegis will be joining together at the Aegis facility in Killeen on November 12 to honor their military-related personnel in observance of Veterans Day. State and local public officials are expected to attend and meet with the employees to thank them for their service, and highlight the many civilian employment opportunities available to veterans and their families.

Aegis is still looking for qualified candidates to fill remaining openings for the Orbitz account. The customer service positions are ideal for military veterans and family members with excellent communication skills who would enjoy competitive pay, fun activities, and performance incentives. Qualified candidates interested in employment are encouraged to contact Aegis at 777 N. Twin Creek Drive Killeen, TX 76453. Applications are accepted via the company's website http://aegiscareersusa.com and in-person.
