AT&T seeking applicants to fill nearly 90 jobs around Wis.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- AT&T has announced that the company is seeking applicants to fill nearly 90 jobs around Wisconsin. This new hiring announcement follows the company’s hiring of nearly 370 new employees in 2013 for positions in IT/engineering, retail, technician, business solutions, and corporate support categories.

The hirings reflect AT&T’s continuing investment in its Wisconsin network and team.

In the first half of 2013, AT&T invested more than $140 million in its networks in Wisconsin. AT&T invested more than $725 million in its Wisconsin wireless and wireline networks from 2010 through 2012, with a focus on expanding 4G LTE mobile Internet coverage and enhancing the overall performance of its networks.

“Wisconsin’s broadband network is an important part of the infrastructure of our state economy and helps residents succeed at work and at home,” said Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester). “I’m pleased to hear that AT&T is creating new jobs throughout the state, which will help improve this essential network.”

“We're pleased to learn that many of these are new Union job opportunities at AT&T," said Linda L. Hinton, Vice President, Communications Workers of America (CWA) District 4. " These Union jobs are important to working families in Wisconsin."

AT&T’s investments included deployment of new macro cell sites, small cells and Distributed Antenna Systems across the state as a part of AT&T’s Project Velocity IP, a three-year investment plan announced in 2012 to expand and enhance its IP broadband networks. The company also expanded and enhanced its 4G LTE network, which provides ultra-fast mobile Internet speeds, and deployed new Wi-Fi hot spots.

AT&T jobs are among the best in the world and full- and part-time positions include competitive wages and benefits. AT&T is regularly recognized for training and development programs that are among the best in the country, and invested about $280 million training employees and about $26.6 million in tuition aid during 2012.

AT&T is committed to and has been recognized for diversity and veteran recruiting.

“AT&T continues to expand its customer base in Wisconsin and invest in our network to ensure we are providing the high level of service customers have come to expect of the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network,” said Scott T. VanderSanden, President of AT&T Wisconsin. “As part our commitment to this level of customer service and to support our growth in Wisconsin we are pleased to have the opportunity to welcome these hundreds of Wisconsinites to the AT&T family.”
