    Default Newport News Va

    I am hearing that USIC is doing a mass hiring in the VA area .
    Why since they have the power and telecommunications contract since 2011 .
    And they are getting lot of fines .
    Anyone know anything?

    I havent heard of USIC doing any hiring.. But upon talking to a UQ manager they are hiring 30 more techs to add to the 70 they already have at the beach; which is odd. When S&N had everything (gas, power, phone & cable) at the beach they only had 70 techs and UQ only has Verizon at the moment. Curious to see whats coming myself..

    USIC was chase out of Virginia by heavy fines from the State Corporation Commission. They hold contracts in surrounding states where some of the area overlaps in to Virginia.

    This is the smart time of the year to hire as the workload in Virginia spikes in April and runs full tilt until November. If they have insufficient locators to keep Verizon's tickets marked on time they risk losing the contract. Their locators have noticed that new client codes have been added to their ticket manager software to be ready should their efforts to take more contracts are successful.
