APAC Customer Service Inc. has announced plans to eliminate 282 positions by Dec. 31 at its downtown Green Bay office.That sounds real Walkeresque, doesn't it? Promise to create 275 jobs and lose almost 300.
The company notified the state Department of Workforce Development on Monday that it was permanently closing its wireless communications program in the local office due to loss of client business.
The cut positions include 224 customer service representatives, 15 at-home employees and 15 team leaders. Other employees affected include advisers, analysts and managers.
The employees laid off will receive their full pay and benefits through the end of the 60-day notice period, which ends Jan. 3, the company said.
The termination notification comes less than a year after APAC announced plans to add 275 jobs, mostly handling inbound customer service calls at the downtown office, 301 N. Adams St. At the time, those staff increases were seen as a positive sign of revitalization efforts in downtown Green Bay.
Do we really have to wait a year to get rid of him?
