Customer Service Jobs Phoenix at New PayPal Center

A fast-growing company is increasing the number of customer service jobs Phoenix has.

PayPal recently opened a new customer service center in Chandler, a nearby suburb of Phoenix. The new 188,000-square-foot facility is expected to eventually create about 2,000 jobs in Chandler and bring plenty of revenue to the local economy.

The company has already hired more than 500 employees at the new center and expects to hire another 1,500 by the end of the year. These jobs are in everything from sales careers Chandler to customer service to technology and will focus on supporting PayPal's growth.

"PayPal is growing at a phenomenal rate," PayPal President Scott Thompson said in a statement. "Last year we set a new record for the business, adding one million new customers a month. To support this growth, we have added dedicated teams here in Chandler – including customer service, operations, training, technology and management – to serve our customers across North America, in our burgeoning market in Mexico and as far away as Australia."

Part of the reason that PayPal chose to open its new location in Chandler is that the company already has a strong presence in the area. Most notably, PayPal operates a technology center in Scottsdale that supports the company's product development, infrastructure design, and engineering.

"PayPal is a very welcome addition to Chandler and the region on many levels," Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny said. "From job creation and the diversification of the city's business base to PayPal's excellent reputation as a quality employer, we are excited to have them join Chandler in the Price Corridor."

Nursing Jobs in Arizona Created by New Rehab Center

A new rehab center will create hundreds of nursing jobs in Arizona.

Scottsdale Healthcare is planning to partner with Global Rehab to open a new inpatient rehab hospital in Scottsdale. Once completed, the new facility will increase the number of healthcare jobs Scottsdale has by about 120, and bring in about $8.3 million in payroll.

The two-story hospital will measure about 55,000 square feet and will cost about $17 million to build. The rehab center will be used to treat patients who need rehab after suffering stroke, hip fracture, neurological disorder, brain injury, spinal cord injury, traumatic injury, and other complex medical conditions.

Although the exact location of the hospital has yet to be revealed, officials say it will be located in Scottsdale between all three existing Scottsdale Healthcare hospitals and easily accessed from Loop 101. The hospital is currently slated to open in mid-2012.

Physicians and staff who work for Scottsdale Healthcare will help design the facility, and physicians will be able to invest in the structure of the building as limited partners through the Cirrus Group.

"Scottsdale Healthcare is committed to working with leading physicians in the community," Tom Sadvary, president and CEO of Scottsdale Healthcare, said in a statement. "We believe that physicians and hospitals achieve the best outcomes when they operate as teams, and this new venture illustrates our commitment to clinical integration for seamless healthcare delivery along the entire continuum of care."

Scottsdale Healthcare is a nonprofit, community-based organization of healthcare facilities with various locations throughout the Phoenix metro area. Global Rehab is a system of acute inpatient rehab hospitals with various locations throughout Texas.

Denver Finance Jobs Suffer from Bank Closures

Denver finance jobs (Click here) have not seen a good start to the new year.

Although the state avoided any major fallout during the banking crisis of 2010, two banks with large operations in Colorado have failed already this year, including Denver-based United Western Bank and Louisville-based FirsTier Bank.

United Western Bank was the first to close on January 21st, marking the first and largest bank failure in Colorado since 2009, according to the Denver Business Journal. That year the state saw three other banks fail, including: Colorado National Bank, Southern Colorado National Bank, and New Frontier Bank.

Next came the closure of FirstTier Bank on January 28th. That move was made after a review by the Colorado Division of Banking and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation found that the bank would need $10.6 million to reach an appropriate loan-loss reserve level.

Once it was determined the bank would close, the FDIC created the Deposit Insurance National Bank of Louisville, which will remain open until February 28th so customers can access their deposits and open accounts with other institutions.

This is all bad news for the local and statewide financial industry, which has added some jobs in recent months, but continues to suffer losses caused by the economic downturn.

The Denver-Aurora-Broomfield area's financial activities industry employed 90,400 workers during December, which is up from 89,700 workers during November, but a 2.3 percent decrease from the previous year, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Throughout Colorado as a whole, the financial activities industry employed 141,400 workers during December, which is down from 142,300 workers during November and a 2.1 percent decrease when compared to December 2009.
