If you’ve driven past Sykes, a customer service call center located in the “old Walmart” in Malvern,  and wondered about the parking lot filled with cars there, you now have an opportunity to find out more about Hot Spring County’s largest employer.

On Saturday, March 31, from 10am-2pm, the community is invited to take tours of Sykes during their open house and community job fair. Everyone who takes a tour can register for a chance to win a 40” flat screen TV or a $100 Visa gift card.

“Our goal is to attract 1000 visitors to take advantage of job openings around the community,” said Anthony Bloom,” Sykes site director.

Interested applicants can apply for a job with Sykes during the event. Employees will be on hand to answer questions and explain what a workday is like at the customer service call center that currently employs 630 people.

“We’re very proud to have Sykes in our community,” said Nikki Cranford Launius, executive director at the Malvern/Hot Spring County Chamber of Commerce. “They have a significant impact on our economy. The fact that they continue to expand is great. The partners in this event want to make sure we are providing a good solid workforce. It’s going to be a fun event for the entire community,” Launius said.

Live musical entertainment, local bands, bouncy houses and about 20 area businesses and restaurants will be set up in the parking lot in a festival-type atmosphere. Some of the organizations include:
