DALLAS (AP) -- Aegis (AY'-jes) Limited has announced plans to add about 5,000 workers to its U.S. call centers with more than half of the new jobs in Texas.
Spokesman Kevin Nolan said Friday that a lot of the jobs will support open enrollment for the company's health care clients.
Nolan declined to identify clients of the outsourcing and technology services company, which has its Americas headquarters in Dallas. Aegis is part of the Essar Group based in Mumbai, India.
About 1,800 workers will be hired at a call center in Irving. The Killeen center will add about 1,400 employees.
Other jobs will be added at centers in Arizona, Missouri, Florida, West Virginia and New York.
Aegis also plans to hire 650 customer service representatives in San Jose, Costa Rica.
