CEO John Marick told the Bend Bulletin that the company likely will continue adding employees. He said that starting in September, Consumer Cellular will host job fairs to bring on about 25 employees a month.
He said the goal is to employ 150 people by the end of the year.
Marick says the Redmond location will be Consumer Cellular's third call center.
