Comcast will add as many as 150 Chattanooga jobs to its Polymer Drive office by the end of 2012, according to a news release from the cable giant.

"It's great to be able to add so many jobs here as a demonstration of our commitment to Chattanooga, and to provide excellent customer service," said Jim Weigert, vice president and general manager of Comcast Chattanooga. "And when selecting the location, it was the strength of the local team here in Chattanooga that made the choice clear."

The company has already hired dozens of applicants, but there are still 80 openings remaining, Comcast said.

"We are committed to making the right investments in people, advanced technologies and new processes to ensure customers receive the best possible experience each and every time they call Comcast," said Elaine Tapp, Comcast regional senior director of CommOps.

The regional operations group will oversee installation and service schedules, with the goal of tightening Comcast's two-hour window for customer visits, according to the news release.
