Comcast announced today that it’s hosting a hiring event on Wednesday, May 17, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Hyatt Place Chicago South at 5225 S. Harper to recruit approximately 15 full- and part-time employees for the store.
“The primary goal of the XFINITY Store is to provide an excellent customer experience,” said Matt Quantz, Comcast’s regional vice president of Sales. “We’re hoping to find candidates who can provide great service to our customers and help the store achieve its business goals.”
At the event, Comcast will have:

“I’m really pleased that Comcast has chosen Hyde Park to open an XFINITY Store and to recruit in the neighborhood,” said Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle. “The neighborhood is booming and the addition of new jobs will fuel its continued growth.”
“The 4th Ward possesses a wealth of assets, one of which is our human capital. Therefore, I am pleased that Comcast has chosen Hyde Park to open an XFINITY Store, and more importantly to recruit talent from the neighborhood to staff its retail store,” added Chicago 4th Ward Alderman Sophia King.
