Call center looking to hire 125

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

One Toledo company says they're hiring as long as people keep watching infomercials.

Universal Marketing Group (UMG) runs a call center in south Toledo where orders from infomercials seen on TV can be made.

The 24/7 call center is manned by about 200 workers. They take orders for products like TV-advertised workout programs. UMG is now looking to hire an additional 125 people.

"Usually we don't' do much hiring in the summer. It's our slowest time of the year," explained Tammy White from UMG. "But this summer, it's been quite different. We've had a record number of sales."

Pay ranges from $8-10 an hour, and employees receive a commission, as well.

"It's companies like this – like Universal – that find a niche in this particular market, bring employees and start their business," said Toledo Mayor Mike Bell.
