SPi dangles $50,000 salary to call center agents

SPi Global, a Philippines-bred full-service BPO provider, is expanding its presence in the United States, where it is hiring hundreds of call center agents, with lucrative salaries and packages.

While SPi Global, which was once controlled by the PLDT Group, offers salaries ranging from P20,000 to P30,000 to new call center agents in the Philippines, the company is dangling a pay of up to 10 times that figure in Madison, Wisconsin, where it is on a hiring spree.

SPi Global, which was granted tax incentives by Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. and the Department of Workforce Development, plans to hire an additional 300 employees in three years in Wisconsin. 

“We offer excellent opportunities for ambitious sales professionals who want to be part of a winning team. We offer competitive base pay plus a lucrative commission plan that allows top performers to earn as much as $50,000 per year!” the company announced on its Web site.

SPi Global also offers paid training, health insurance, and three weeks of paid vacation. “As our call center expands, we will need to grow our management team! Team leader, trainer, quality assurance specialist, and workforce specialists positions will become available,” it says.

SPi Global has 19,200 employees across five continents. It has six offices in the United States.

SPi Global is now fully-owned by Asia Outsourcing Gamma Ltd., a company owned 80 percent by London-based CVC Capital Partners and 20 percent by PLDT. Roderick T. dela Cruz
