Asurion, a company that insures technical devices, announced they are opening customer service center in Las Vegas that will employ hundreds of people over the next five years.

The team says they chose Las Vegas for their new Premier Support center for a number of reasons.

When a product is missing or simply doesn’t work properly, Asurion solves the problem.”

According to 8 News Now, Asurion officials plan to hire 500 people by the end of the year and grow to 800 within five years. The positions being filled include support technicians, managers and supervisors. Asurion is a global company with 280 million customers.

“They are not minimum wage jobs. They are expert support technicians. It is a customer center,” Paul Fassbender, Director of Public Policy and Economic Development at Asurion, told 8 News Now.

“We are hiring and having a Career Fair on October 16, 2014 at our new Montecito Pkwy location,” said Melody DiJulio. “Our technicians are deeply skilled in mobile device troubleshooting.
