Insurer aims to fill 70 full-time positions
United-Healthcare is looking to hire 70 people to work as full-time customer service representatives, customer service advocates and claims representatives to work in the company’s office on Boices Lane Extension.
The insurance company will host a “virtual job fair” Oct. 3-6 at bit.ly/kingstonVHE, allowing people to apply online for positions.
United-Healthcare Public Relations Director Maria Gordon Shydlo said in an email that the hired employees will answer customers’ and providers’ calls, process claims and provide clinical case management. She said people with experience in health care or customer service are encouraged to apply.
She said the company will be hiring people to work at company’s Ulster office and from home.
Shydlo said pay will depend on the position, but that health insurance and other benefits are part of the compensation package and there will be opportunities for advancement within the company.
Currently, Shydlo said, United-Healthcare has about 800 employees working in its Ulster office.
“We have had a customer service center in [Ulster] since 1995, and it remains an impor---
tant customer support center for us, supporting businesses and individuals here in New York and
across the country,” Shydlo wrote. “We are committed to the Kingston market and the broader Hudson Valley region as an employer and community member.”
The online job fair will run 24 hours a day.
