Metris Companies Inc., one of the nation’s fastest growing direct marketing companies, announced today a recruiting effort to fill approximately 500 positions in the company’s new Scottsdale operations center. Interested candidates are invited to attend a company-hosted job fair on Monday, March 13, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the new Metris facility at 17600 Perimeter Dr. in Scottsdale.
Metris expects its new Scottsdale facility to accommodate more than 600 collections, customer service, information technology and management employees by year-end. The company currently employs more than 120 people in the Scottsdale area.
“We’re excited to be a growing member of the Scottsdale community and think that we stand a notch above the competition based on our compensation and benefits package, the quality of our facilities, the services we offer and the care we show our employees,” said David R. Reak, executive vice president. “Metris offers a fast track for advancement and an opportunity to work with a highly experienced management team.”
Metris’ expanded growth in Scottsdale reflects the company’s aggressive growth, marked recently by the opening of new facilities in Tulsa, Okla., and Jacksonville, Fla. Later this year, the company will open a new corporate headquarters in suburban Minneapolis.
