RIO RANCHO – Alliance Data Retail Services is expected to create about 200 new jobs at its Rio Rancho customer-care center this year as part of its expansion to nearly 700 employees to accommodate its growing client base.
Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela and Gov. Susana Martinez announced that expansion Thursday.
In February, Alliance Data was approved for $738,788 in Job Training Incentive Program funds to hire and train 181 new employees.
The company will be hiring customer-care associates, customer-retention associates, trainers and customer-care managers.
All positions offer a full range of benefits to full-time employees.
“We are grateful for the support from the state of New Mexico that will help us hire 200 more associates in Rio Rancho,” said Melisa Miller, president of Alliance Data Retail Services.
The company is a unit of Alliance Data Systems Corp. based in Plano, Texas.
