Sandy — General Dynamics Information Technology has announced plans to open a call center facility in an existing 130,000 square foot building in Sandy City, leading to the creation of up to 1,600 new jobs. “Job creation is one of our top priorities,” said Tom Dolan, mayor of Sandy City.

The call center in Sandy City will answer questions and provide support to people who will enroll in new coverage programs through the Health Insurance Marketplace.

General Dynamics will staff the new call center with customer service representatives, supervisors, call center managers, quality specialists and trainers.

The company will also host a “family fun day” recruiting event Aug. 31 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. where candidates are encouraged to bring children and enjoy snacks and activities at the call center site: 8475 South Sandy Parkway, Sandy, Utah 84070.
