Las Vegas research company adding 300 to 400 call-center jobs


A Las Vegas research firm announced Monday it was doubling the size of its work force and would add 300 to 400 call-center positions to its staff in coming months.

The company, Precision Opinion, said it would hold a job fair Thursday to screen applicants for the new positions, which a spokesman said would be full-time. The majority will pay $8.25 an hour, but some higher-paying management positions will be filled, as well.

The job fair will take place in two sessions at the company’s headquarters, 101 Convention Center Drive, Suite 124. The sessions will begin at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and those interested in applying can obtain more information by calling 702-483-4098.

Precision Opinion has been conducting market research for 20-plus years and has been based in Las Vegas since 1996. The company further announced Monday that it planned to add a second office location in Las Vegas shortly after the job fair.

  1. Don't knock sawbuck an hour jobs. They provide something for someone who needs the dough, and second jobs for others. I happen to believe that call and fulfillment centers would and will go along way to contributing to the economic revival of the city. That they're not the greatest jobs in the world, they do provide something and, as most of us know, that's better than nothing.

  2. In a time where places are cutting part time jobs and reducing overall staff, why haven't the people at the Chamber of Commerce tried to scream the successes of businesses like these from the tops of the Stratosphere? Zappos and Precision Opinion seem to be the only companies driving an increase in job opportunities, according to what I've read on the news. The CoC should be dishing out some awards. Why hasn't some politician been pictured shaking hands at the company headquarters of this place? Not like they're doing anything in Washington anyways...
