Charter Communications received $2.7 million in tax incentives through the Missouri Works program for a call center it plans to open in Bridgeton, a city in northwestern St. Louis County. Charter must create 225 new jobs in order to receive the tax credits, according to the Missouri Department of Economic Development.
In June, Charter announced plans to launch a call center in the former Western Union call center building, which is expected to open spring of next year. A spokeswoman said Charter plans to relocate about 200 customer care employees from its existing center in Town & Country and hire about 225 new employees in 2014. Charter has more than 2,900 employees in the St. Louis metro area.
