A Spokane call center for a national firm that produces grocery receipt advertising will ramp up operations by adding 65 workers later this year.
RTUI, based in Texas, already has 22 call center workers in Spokane at a new North side location at 4503 W. Wellesley.
National operations director Dana Wenzel said the company will add the extra workers to expand sales. The company produces register ads for about 7,000 food stores nationwide.
Call center workers arrange sales visits to potential advertisers who buy ads printed by RTUI on the receipts. Advertisers range from restaurants and fast-food eateries to auto repair shops and health and fitness retailers.
Wenzel said the salaries for RTUI workers start at roughly $30,000; that figure includes sales bonuses. Full benefits are provided after three months, he said. All the new jobs are all full-time.
Applicants for the new openings should email resumes to the company’s human resources office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
RTUI opened its first Spokane office 10 years ago. The call center will take 11,000 square feet in the former Yoke’s food store at the intersection of Wellesley and Assembly, near the VA Medical Center.
“They’ve asked me a number of times to move the call center out of Spokane,” Wenzel said of company officials. “I’m not willing to do that. I’m a local guy, I graduated from Deer Park High School. I like this area a lot,” Wenzel said.
Another reason for not relocating is Spokane having a reliable number of motivated workers, he said.
RTUI (originally Register Tapes Unlimited Inc.) is based in Houston. Wenzel said it has a number of satellite offices but Spokane is its main call center.
