Santo Domingo.- President Danilo Medina on Thursday said foreign investors are banking on Dominican Republic’s economic performance and the country should seize this great moment.

Medina spoke to cut the ribbon for the premises of the special free zone company ALORICA, in the sector ??Villa Juana, and whose executives affirm creates 1,000 jobs, 65% of which are their first employment for university students.

With more than 20,000 employees worldwide, ALORICA has 40 service centers spread over the United States, India, the Philippines and Dominican Republic, where it invested around US$250 million, to provide Back Office Solutions, among other services.

Art Dibari ALORICA head of global operations, said the country is the most attractive in the area for contact centers and is rapidly becoming the Caribbean capital for those companies.

He said based on his company’s successful operations in the country it will double the number of workers in the next few years. "After visiting several countries, ALORICA chose the Dominican Republic due to the number of bilingual population, affinity with the United States and its robust telecommunications infrastructure."

Talking about Jobs and Great Fabricated News!

“Inequality, poverty and low wages inequality, poverty and low wages”

“This has been a long-term outcome of an economic and social model that increasingly generates fewer jobs per unit of product. Moreover, the additional employment is of poor quality and low productivity.”

“In addition, the dynamic economic sectors have been developed in the form of enclaves or are intensive in capital, with few internal linkages with other productive sectors, determining that, in the long run, the economy grows but with low multipliers.”

I think by now IDIOT IRS Atabey has learned what are "multipliers" from Dr. Dread!

Only negative things can come out of Josean mouth. But we understand he has to campaign for Guillermo now since the PRD is broken into two parties now and with no chance of winning next election the way things are going there now.

no he has not learned. you cannot teach someone who thinks he knows it all already.

as far as the DR getting the call center jobs, and Danilo bragging about the attractive atmosphere....horse$hit!!. call center jobs are mostly english speaking affairs. the english speaking caribbean would be tailor made for call centers. they do not want the jobs in those islands, because the people will not work for slave wages. the zona francas were in Jamaica before the DR, but they left in droves because most people did not wish to work for nothing. the same jobs that pay less than 2 dollars per hour in the DR pay 12 dollars in the US. they can keep them.

ALORICA's executive said:

"After visiting several countries, ALORICA chose the Dominican Republic due to the number of bilingual population, affinity with the United States and its robust telecommunications infrastructure."


Did anyone see the word (((BILINGUAL))) !!!

English speaking only nations, would certainly not be ideal for this kind of bilingual businees.

The US population is more bilingual than ever before, and the trend continues.

On the other hand, better a low paying job than no job at all.

Want proof? Ask the Haitians living in DR.

We need 20,000 companies like ALORICA, with 20,000 low paying jobs.

This will attract more companies with better paying jobs.

Later when we are in a position to demand higher pay, we will.

WELCOME TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC ALORICA !!!!

WE WISH YOU GREAT SUCESS IN YOUR ENDEVORS !!!!

Ah... that is so nice.

Now Dominican graduates who can't fine real productive jobs or who aren't connected to the Familia Network....in DR, can now work the phone lines... and sell products for $19.99 to the dum gringos... and also help me keep my credit card bills up to date.

I guess that is your 2nd carrier option - Graduate Class 2013... and beyond.

It's not 1000 jobs, it's 2100 jobs at $130/Hr to 140/hr... not bad at all.

Good luck Alorica!

“Moreover, the additional employment is of poor quality and low productivity.”

Call center jobs certainly offer better working environments and conditions than many jobs in the DR. They provide ergonomically designed work spaces, air conditioned, many have cafeterias and many other amenities. Moreover, they offer “higher” than average pay, especially a company like Alorica wanting to higher 1000 bilingual agents. They have to compete for those employees and reputable call centers typically pay beginning agents between DR$90 and DR$120 per hour. Supervisors (yes, they will have to hire them, too) make up to DR$340 per hour. This contributes to a burgeoning middle class and creates opportunities for the future. We need more of these kinds of developments in the country.

rubbish!! call centers do not contribute to a burgeoning middle class. call centers are better than nothing, but barely so. they are dead end jobs that offer no future prospects. and please, spare me the lectures, because i have worked in more than a few , myself.

Now Dr. Dread don't be so josean negative!

Those "1,000" jobs mean a 1,000 new homes purchased and 1,000 new cars moving off the lots with those extraordinarly generous salaries.

The other side of the spectrum is the growing technology industry, including BPOs and KPOs, which are beginning to develop and hone technology skills among local workers. This is huge! We still are far lacking and behind countries like Panama and Costa Rica, but new program ares developing every day to teach language and technology course (see ITLA and others). Complain if you want,but quality people are getting quality

Wow, dread ... with no disrespect intended, I am not sure what kind of shit hole call center you have worked at. I know several of the large call centers throughout the country (particularly in Santiago where wages are even lower than in Santo Domingo) and they pay far higher wages than earned in a textile factory, a sugar, or platano, or tobacco or (name any other) plantation in the country. I know college educated engineers who could not find jobs, went to the call center industry and have been working there for 10 years. They do quite nicely and have no desire to leave.

It's interesting how this Fortune Five Hundred Company of the Call Center World, according to the cheerleaders, dosen't reveal the compensation scales for these alleged 1,000 jobs.

Or how come these "college educated engineers" who have been working for "ten years" don't come forward to sing the praises?

josean, we have been down this road before. we have heard about these great salaries that guys are making in these wondrous call centers. i am in no position to dispute this guy. i know that the call centers in POP are paying slave wages, and tell the applicants that they can make big bucks on commissions. then some guy tries to sell crap like home security systems, and sell one per week, because everyone who owns a home already has ADT. any college educated engineer who works in a call center for 10 years has found his calling. he never was meant to be an engineer. no real engineer would spend 10 years of his life behind a telephone, asking the same questions for 8 hours, fielding insults, and having no prospects for any kind of meaningful advancement. 10 years ago they were trying to pitch a certain product. today, a different product. really inspirational! it is a stop gap job, for when you need a job, and cannot find something better.

josean, this guy tells us of these miracle jobs, but says nothing about the ones that pay less than 5000 per 2 weeks. those are really enlarging the burgeoning "MIDDLE CLASS" i know guys who have worked in call centers for years, and they are still showing up for work in 25 peso carritos.

Dreadlocks, you are absolutely right! There are a number of 'call centers" that offer commissioned jobs to earn any kind of real income - not only in Puerto Plata, but also in Santo Domingo, Santiago, Semana , Cabarete and other places throughout the country. My recommendation to anyone considering a call center job is that if the bulk of your income is reliant on commissions selling junk ... run!. Notwithstanding, (if you read my original post on this thread) reputable call centers pay good salaries with favorable working conditions.

Josefa, I got these numbers from their job ad, google it!

Btw, dealing with people is the toughest job in the world, so I congratulate those that gain this experience from these call centers. Also, the call center reps that I've met speak very clearly and properly, which I'm sure they learned from working there.

"Some employees consulted by Acento.com.do who asked not be identified for fear of being fired, afirm that the company has been operating for three years"

"Algunos empleados consultados por Acento.com.do y que pidieron no ser identificados por temor a despidos, afirmaron que  la empresa tiene unos tres años en funcionamiento."
