The company began its recruiting efforts last fall to help service the increasing demand for its moving and storage services. Last fall, 150 full-time customer service positions were filled. The additional 200 positions of customer service and sales representative positions for 2013 will work in PODS' call center by assisting current and potential customers with their moving and storage needs.

"We continue to see an increased demand for PODS moving and storage services and that has required us to increase our staffing levels," said Lisa Goettel, senior vice president of PODS' Human Resources division.

With the economy continually improving, the current national unemployment rate for February 2013 is at 7.7 percent, while Florida is at 7.8 percent, according to the monthly report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

"Customer service is our number one priority for both our residential and commercial customers. Much of our growth comes from our highly satisfied customers telling others about their great experience," said John B. Koch, President & CEO, PODS Enterprises, Inc. "Moving can be a stressful time and our associates love to make it a little easier for our customers."
