600 new jobs are coming to western St. Charles County, courtesy of Obamacare and and government contractor Serco, Inc.
The Virginia-based company plans to lease the site of the old US Fidelis call center in the building that was originally Belz Outlet Mall at the intersection of I-70 and I-64 in Wentzville.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch broke the story Tuesday, reporting that the agreement could bring 600 new jobs to the area.
Serco has been contracted by the federal government to process applications for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.
The jobs are already listed on Serco's website. Jobs start at $12 per hour, with some positions paying more. The company is planning a job fair in September.
“We are working a very tight quick turnaround,” a Serco manager told the Post.
Two other call centers will be operated in Arkansas and Kentucky.
