5 CS Call Centers Closing, people being told they can relocate or walk.
Orangeburg TelesSales too.....

They are eliminating the OS and ES position nationwide. 11/04 is the last day on payroll. If you don't secure another job with in the company you get a severance package that is your weekly pay x number of years with the company x 2.
