Allstate Holds Hiring Event For 500 Jobs

Allstate’s new building in Chubbuck is almost finished, and at a career fair in Pocatello on Thursday the company started its massive hiring push.

More than 500 people will end up being hired to staff the new call center.

Julie Stoltz has been looking for work for over a year and was one of those who came to the hiring event.

?I need a job. I thought this would be a good place to start. I’ve put in some applications already, and it seems like a good company to work for. So I’m out here with very many others,? Stoltz said.

People hoping to find a new career swarmed Pocatello’s Idaho Department of Labor building Thursday afternoon.

Those who came to the career fair watched a presentation about the positions available, and got some one-on-one time with the hiring managers who will be choosing the new customer service employees.

As for those who’ll end up getting the jobs, experience of course is a plus, but Allstate said the most important thing is the right attitude.

“We’re looking for people who want to actually help people, that have that knack of being able to help people with whatever they need help with, truly,? Allstate recruiter Jose Vigil said.

The Idaho Department of Labor said these jobs should have a huge impact on the local economy.

“That kind of job creation over the fall and winter months has me and other people in the department tremendously optimistic about where we’re going economically,? IDOL economist Dan Cravens said.

Allstate will conduct interviews over the next month, and the first big wave of hiring should happen by Nov. 11.
