Time Warner Goes on a Hiring Spree in Ohio

Time Warner Cable recently announced that it is hiring more than 120 new workers in Ohio to support its Cable Business Class, technical support, telemarketing and other operations, according to Columbus Business First.
This week the company is hosting recruiting sessions in the Ohio cities of Columbus, Findley and Zanesville.
The cable provider is looking to hiring 75 new workers in Columbus, 35 in Zanesville and 12 in Findlay, according to reports from Columbus Business First and the Gannett-owned Zanesville Times Recorder.
Time Warner Cable is already one of Central Ohio’s largest employers with an estimated 1,900 workers in the region, according to Columbus Business First. Last year it also had a round of hiring.
The growth primarily comes from the company’s Time Warner Cable Business Class, which employs 335 workers in Central Ohio. The business provides phone, Internet, Ethernet, cable TV and security services for companies.
“[It] continues to be a bright spot for the company in terms of growth and revenue,” Mike Hogan told Columbus Business First, spokesman for Time Warner Cable.
Also driving the jobs are new products and services being offered by Time Warner, the Zanesville Times Recorder reported Hogan as saying. In January, for instance, Time Warner announced a partnership with electronics company Roku.
Roku is a small box that connects to a user’s home Wi-Fi network and streams more than 300 channels to their television set. Users connect Roku to their TV through an AV cable or HDMI cable.
During the Consumer Electronics Show in January, Time Warner and Roku announced that through a partnership they would now bring Time Warner Cable TV services to second-generation Roku boxes as well as the recently-introduced Roku streaming stick, reported GigaOm at the time.
Time Warner Cable will stream up to 300 channels to subscribers through the service, GigaOm reported. The actual channel line-up depends on where customers live, as well as their subscription package.
The month before, Time Warner also rolled out a new one-hour installation program that cuts the time customers must wait for cable installation, driving both sales and customer satisfaction.
The new positions jobs will be in residential service sales, technical support, outbound telemarketing and Business Class representatives, according to Hogan.
The positions are full-time, shift schedules vary, and pay starts at $10.30 per hour, as reported by the Zanesville Times Recorder.
