Express Scripts Bringing 100 New Jobs to Joplin

Updated:

 

News release from the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce:

Joplin, Mo. - St. Louis-based Express Scripts, one of the country's largest pharmacy benefit companies, is looking for people to fill up to 100 jobs it will soon bring to the Joplin area.   

The Fortune 100 company will hire customer service representatives to work from home after training at the Joseph Newman Business and Technology Innovation Center in downtown Joplin.   

Express Scripts is a pharmacy benefit manager responsible for the pharmacy benefits for more than 100 million Americans. Express Scripts makes the use of prescription drugs safer and more affordable and provides pharmacy-benefit management services to thousands of clients - the businesses, health plans, unions and government agencies that provide pharmacy benefits for Americans and their families.

Prospective employees will undergo training at the Center and then receive all the necessary equipment to work at home as customer service representatives. These positions offer flexibility and allow employees to work in a convenient, comfortable location.  

The Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce economic development team worked with the company and the Missouri Department of Economic Development for nearly nine months as it went through the process of selecting a location for this new operation.  

"We are pleased this great Missouri company picked our fine community for this venture that will provide state-of-the-art customer care services to its more than 100 million customers nationwide," said Chamber President Rob O'Brian. "Having the Newman Innovation Center was a definite plus among the many assets we have for expanding and new companies. Express Scripts will be able to use space at the Center for its training needs as it ramps up operations in Joplin."

The company plans to begin selecting employees next month. Those interested in seeking employment with Express Scripts should respond immediately by logging onto the company's website at www.express-scripts.com/careers <http://www.express-scripts.com/careers> for more information.
