WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Economic developers in North Carolina say Norwegian Cruise Lines is creating a work-from-home agent cluster which could create as many as 200 full-time jobs.
The Winston-Salem Journal reports agents, who will work in the Triad area, will serve in entry-level positions and will be the first point of contact for guests and travel agents looking to arrange vacations on the cruise line. It is the first time Norwegian Cruise Line has expanded its at-home agent program outside of Arizona and Florida.
According to the cruise line, the initial hiring goal is between 30 and 45, which it said will comprise a pilot group for a four-week training period that ends in August.
The hiring process is expected to begin next Wednesday and is expected to take up to 18 months.
