It looks like it may be time to dust off those resumes. SWBC is looking to fill more than 150 customer-service representatives, data research specialists and part-time collectors at its Northwest San Antonio office.

locals can solve this by getting an education and appropriate clearance. its not hard to stay out of trouble and get a good military job.

it bums me out when locals gripe about jobs that are super easy to get, if youd only educate yourself and keep your criminal history non-existent.

hahaha!

none of the call centers here are good places to work. USAA has the best reviews, the rest are utter crap. chances are, i was an admin for whatever call center you work at at some point. they are all dead-end jobs with pathetic politics in play.

sooooo glad im not in a call center anymore, even in an administrative role.

The DoD has certification requirements for its information assurance employees. CISSP (and variants) is an IAT Level III, IAM Level III, IASAE Level III, and CNDSP Manager certification. Level III is the highest level in those first three categories.
Dept of Defense Directive: DoDD 8570

The DoD just approved CCNA Security this year for Level I and II technicians.

Call Center jobs aren't for everyone. No need to be hateful. Everyone has a different meaning and understanding of successful. I know lots of very happy and successful people that work at Wells Fargo and Citi (all of who were making more money than i was when I was a foster care case manager). Would I want to work there? Heck no. I can't stand the thought of sitting in one place for 8 hours a day, opening the same programs everyday and getting the same results and having someone turn to me every few minutes saying, "Keep it up, smiling and dialing!" I enjoy being able to get up and working with people face to face and having my boss have faith in my ability to do what I was told to do without them checking in on me every 10 minutes. However, some people need that structure and it's not my place to say that they don't work in a good place. Neither is it yours to say their jobs are dead end.

You clearly have no idea what you are talking about. This is not West communications I'm talking about. Heck 40% of the jobs where I work don't even involve inbound or outbound calls.

The state of Texas is investing $800,000 to bring a food manufacturing facility to Seguin that is expected to create more than 200 new jobs.
Gov.
