Hundreds Of Jobs On The Way To The Springs

Hundreds of new jobs are headed to Colorado Springs, Mayor Steve Bach announced Monday morning.

The company Stellar Restaurant Solutions, which started locally, works as a call center for some of the nation's biggest restaurant chains. When things started to expand, they thought about moving out of Colorado, but thanks to some changes have decided to stick around.

Having Stellar expand means hundreds of jobs to start--and maybe even thousands down the road.

Stellar's CEO Steve Bigari says the decision to stay in the Springs didn't come lightly, and had a lot to do with Bach.

"We need someone to treat us like we belong...to help use the resources of the city as appropriate to help streamline decisions and help get things done more quickly; get us quality people; and get our permits on time. He's completely changed the heart of the city towards business," Bigari said.

Bigari said the quality of employees here in Colorado also played a big part in their decision to stay.

The expansion is already underway, but it's unclear when those jobs we'll be available. We'll let you know when we learn more.

    Exactly, this is one of the main points. I understand this and I do not have any dependents. A single individual can barely pay living expenses earning an income of $8 and some change an hour, as a part-time employee. You ain't got room in your monthly budget for any extra's such as, going to the cheapest dollar movie theatre in town. And you can barely afford to pay rent by yourself. All you can do is pray to Jesus Christ for Him to open doors for new employment opportunities that you need, based on your situation.

    first off, i do not give benefits to part time employees. almost all of my employees are part time minus a few managers and a few agents. im a christian man who wants to help the community as long my companys names is in the spot light. we have employees who have been going to school and have been with this company for yeas, now we are changing their schedules and making them find new shift. if they do not come into work cuz they have class, it will get counted against them. we are not working with personal schdules anymore. only the needs of the company. so if ur wanting a job, make sue your not a student and your not expecting to have a full time job. we are hiring tons of people now, we even have two training class happening right now, even tho we just cut our entire staffs hours in half. i use to get to know all the employees but lately i have been so busy, i dont talk to them now. and im trying to save money, so pleas bring your own sugar and creamer. hope to see you on he phones soon making me money. god bless all you lost souls.

    Nice to know some jobs are coming back to this country. And right in my own back yard is so much better yet.

    This will be a great story when the wages are at the same level as the least paid of the Mayor's staff. This is show-and-tell and that's all.

    A bad job is better than no job. If you're trapped in a bad job with a bad boss you just have to suck it up until something better comes along.
