A debt collection company plans to more than double its operations at a north Louisiana contact center, creating 146 new jobs.
Coast Professional will make a $750,000 capital investment in its West Monroe center. The average compensation for the new jobs will be $36,500 annually, plus benefits.
The company already employs 125 workers, according to a release from Governor John Bel Edwards.
The expansion involves converting a former Sears Hometown store and renovating the interior space and parking area.
