The Tamarac call center was closed; work was outsourced to Orlando. “In February 2011, we will further consolidate the Florida Teleservices operation by expanding the Orlando Sentinel call center,” a memo to employees read. “As part of this venture, we had to make the difficult decision to shut down South Florida’s Tamarac call center, which will officially close on February 12, 2011. Every effort is being made to help the affected employees with this transition, and appropriate measures are being taken to ensure a smooth transition for our telemarketing efforts.”
