Hundreds Of New Jobs Coming To Pulaski County

Hundreds of new jobs are coming to Pulaski County, all thanks to an insurance company.

Safe Auto Insurance is making plans to build a new contact center near Somerset.

The business will open in the Valley Oak Technology Complex at first before moving to a more permanent facility later.

Economic development officials say the company will employ more than 260 people.

"Half of these jobs are going to be insurance sales agents, $40,000 plus a year," Carrol Estes from the Economic Development Foundation said. "Another half are sales reps, $25,000 to $30,000. It's the best recruiting company we've gotten in the last year or two."

Safe Auto plans to start interviewing and hiring people within a month.
