Orbitz Worldwide and Aegis Hire Over 200 Veterans and Military Family
Members in 2012 
KILLEEN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 11/09/12 --  As the nation looks to
celebrate Veterans Day, Orbitz Worldwide and its customer experience
partner Aegis announced today that they have hired over 200 United
States armed service veterans and military family members for
customer service representative positions at Aegis's Killeen, Texas
center.  
In February, Orbitz Worldwide committed to the First Lady's Joining
Forces Veterans Hiring Initiative, and initially pledged to hire 50
veterans and military family members in 2012 through its call centers
and at-home agent programs. While their original goal has already
been far surpassed, Orbitz hopes to continue hiring. "The military
community provides a strong talent pool of attractive candidates. We
have experienced that veterans and military family members are
skilled and dynamic individuals, and their commitment to customer
service improves the travel experience for our millions of global
customers," said Barney Harford, CEO of Orbitz Worldwide. 
"Aegis is proud to hire military veterans and their families, and we
are equally proud to partner with our clients to help them accomplish
their goals," said Sandip Sen, CEO of global customer lifecycle
management for Aegis. "We have several contact centers located close
to U.S. military bases, and these areas give us access to exceptional
labor pools. Military veterans and their families comprise a
well-rounded, tech-savvy, and well-traveled work force with a strong
desire to serve. Their work ethic is an inspiration to our global
work force."  
Orbitz and Aegis will be joining together at the Aegis facility in
Killeen on November 12 to honor their military-related personnel in
observance of Veterans Day. State and local public officials are
expected to attend and meet with the employees to thank them for
their service, and highlight the many civilian employment
opportunities available to veterans and their families. 
Aegis is still looking for qualified candidates to fill remaining
openings for the Orbitz account. The customer service positions are
ideal for military veterans and family members with excellent
communication skills who would enjoy competitive pay, fun activities
,
and performance incentives. Qualified candidates interested in
employment are encouraged to contact Aegis at 777 N. Twin Creek Drive
Killeen, TX 76453. Applications are accepted via the company's
website http://aegiscareersusa.com and in-person.
