Afni Inc., which runs three call centers in Tucson, will open a new center in midtown early next month that will eventually employ about 400 people.

The company is looking to fill about 150 inbound-sales positions this week to have the center ready for its early March opening. The company will also take applications for supervisory positions.

A job fair will take place today and Wednesday to take applications and conduct interviews for the positions.

Pam Fifer, Afni's human-resources manager in Tucson, said she could not disclose what the new jobs will pay, but she did say the bulk of the jobs will be sales and customer-service positions, all making more than minimum wage, plus benefits.

"Our benefits package is very competitive for Tucson," she said.

The new call center will be at 5451 E. Williams Blvd., in Williams Centre.

Illinois-based Afni Inc. employs about 2,100 workers at three other call centers in Tucson.

The company provides call centers, collections and other services nationwide for the communications and insurance industries.


Afni Inc. will hold a job fair to fill positions at its new call center today and Wednesday at the Courtyard Marriott, 201 S. Williams Blvd., from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
