It's time for Humana's other big operation in Tampa Bay to go on a hiring binge.
The health care benefits company is adding 140 jobs at its national Medicare marketing and telesales call center in Tampa's NetPark, 5701 E Hillsborough Ave. Spokesman Mitch Lubitz said the company aims to fill the positions by the end of July, increasing the workforce of its East Tampa call centers to 1,100.
The news comes a month after Humana began hiring 177 more employees at its Humana Cares unit in St. Petersburg, a division that provides health aid and consults over the phone and in person to chronically ill Humana members. Launched with 200 employees in February 2009, Humana Cares is on pace to swell to 1,000 associates this summer.
