Sprint to hire 150 as it expands sales in the Pacific Northwest

Sprint, which has slashed more than 2,500 over the last year, is actually hiring. The Kansas City Business Journal reported the nation's fourth-largest mobile carrier is adding 150 positions to its Pacific Northwest region, including 120 retail jobs. Sprint opened new sales offices in Bellevue, Wash., and Beaverton, Ore., expanding on a presence it gained when it acquired Bellevue-based Clearwire in 2013.

The operator continues to cut its budget across the board, from personnel to marketing to network investments. But as growth slows in the U.S. mobile market, operators are increasingly looking to the retail segment to target customers. Sprint's move is a signal that it's willing to invest at least a modest amount to continue to vie for customers at the point of sale. Article
