West To Hang Up Phone On Telemarketing In Lubbock

A disturbing announcement right before Christmas. West Corporation plans to close its Lubbock center, leaving hundreds out of a job.

According to the Lubbock-AJ, the impact of the national no call registry and a change in client marketing strategies is forcing West to hang up the phone on telemarketing. The Lubbock Center is located in the Wayland Plaza located at 19th and West Loop 289.

West is expected to close its doors on January 20th of next year. At least 300 people will lose their jobs and will not receive severance packages, according to the Lubbock AJ.

NewsChannel 11 contacted the company based out of Omaha, Nebraska, but has yet to receive any comment.
