Hiring to support company’s commitment to the market, its business priorities, and help deliver an exceptional experience to its wireless customers

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Mar 31, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --In 2009, Sprint announced it was hiring at its Contact Center in Rancho Cordova. Now, Sprint (NYSE: S) is once again hiring in the Sacramento market. With nearly 125 positions to fill in that Center, the jobs are an economic boom during a time when other companies have been downsizing.

Sprint will hold an exclusive on-site hiring event on Thursday, April 1st, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Call Center at 3068 Kilgore Road, Rancho Cordova. This special event is designed for Sprint representatives to meet with interested job-seekers and for candidates to learn more about the position. Interviews will be available the day of the event. The new hires will be offered competitive salaries and benefits, including medical, dental, 401(k), monthly performance bonuses, and participation in Sprint’s employee wireless phone program.

"This is an amazing time for the wireless industry and our employees are essential to Sprint’s success. We are looking for bright, customer focused, and technically astute people who thrive on change, innovation and technology," said Dianne Drever, Site Lead and General Manager of the Sprint Sacramento Call Center. "We are especially pleased that we’re also able to positively impact the local economy with our hiring initiative," Drever adds.

This decision is in anticipation of increased customer expectations with the accelerated national roll out of Sprint’s 4G network coupled with an overwhelming response to new device launches, including the HTC EVO introduced at last week’s CTIA wireless trade show in Las Vegas. Sprint is on the verge of revolutionizing the U.S. smartphone marketplace and needs a team of passionate and committed professionals to make it happen.

Sprint’s Call Center has been in Sacramento for 27 years. With a tenured leadership team it remains one of the most esteemed call centers in Sprint. The call center has received numerous accolades including national recognition as the recipient of the Stevie Award for Best Customer Service Team from the American Business Award.
