Affiliated Computer Services Inc., one of Kentucky's largest private employers, plans to hire 325 employees in Lexington and Pikeville.
The new positions are customer-care and technical support agents, who will take inbound calls from customers, and supervisors. ACS spokesman Chris Gilligan said the jobs will support two existing customers that are expanding their business with ACS. He declined to name them.
Of the 325 jobs, 250 are in Lexington. Those are all permanent full-time positions. The remaining 75 jobs, which include 25 part-time positions, are in Pikeville. Those are all permanent positions, too.
The jobs pay about $10 hourly and also have performance incentives available.
To apply, fill out an online application at ACS-inc.com or apply at the following locations: 101 Yorkshire Boulevard in Lexington; 745 West New Circle Road, Building 200, in Lexington; or 55 Sykes Boulevard in the Mossy Bottom Business Park in Pikeville. Those interested in applying can also call (859) 389-2280 or (859) 389-2311 in Lexington and (606) 218-2513 in Pikeville during regular business hours.
ACS noted that people applying in person should be prepared to spend several hours interviewing and testing. Those selected will be offered jobs the same day pending any additional paperwork required.
ACS also continues to hire for the bulk of the positions created at its new call center location on West New Circle Road in Lexington. In August, the company announced it would hire 700 employees for the location.
ACS, which recently was acquired by Xerox, provides information technology and outsourcing services to private businesses and government agencies.
ACS has about 4,000 employees statewide, including more than 2,000 in Lexington.
Kentucky is the ACS division's second-largest base of employees worldwide behind its headquarters in Texas, the company said.
