UPDATE 1/9/14 @ 5:15 p.m.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Zachary Nelson is in his fourth day of training at Ibex Global. It's a job he says he landed in a matter of hours.

"I got the open house email, came over and basically got the same job every day," Nelson said. "For me, basically the electronics, the internet and the networking, it's always been my thing. I've always had this retail job or this fast food job that I really just wasn't too thrilled with. Well this job, this is right up my alley."

Patricia Lockhart has been with Ibex Global for 17 years. A fact that she says is proof how much she enjoys her work.

"This is a great place to work," Lockhart said. "It's an opportunity. It's comparable money. It's better than standing on your feet all day working in fast food. It's an opportunity that if you don't know about it, you need to seek it out because it's really an awesome job."

Connie Staunton, who is the site director at Ibex's Contact Center in Charleston, says the company hopes to quickly hire 250 new employees starting next week.

"We're looking for employees who have a background in tech support, also in customer service, and also employees who are able to sell," Staunton said. "Most of the requirements for this job, you're able to learn while you're in our new hire orientation class, but having that background will make the job a lot easier to get through."

The job pays $10.50 an hour while employees are in training, and $11 an hour after graduation to production. Company officials say employees can also receive incentives for hitting goals like Xbox's, TV's and Keurig coffee machines.

Ibex Global will have an open house Monday, December 13 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. It will be at the company's contact center at 100 Parkways Road in Charleston. Company Officials say you should bring two forms of ID, but if you forget you can bring that in later.
