GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A leasing company is holding a job fair in Glendale Tuesday afternoon as it attempts to hire 500 employees over the next year.

Progressive Leasing anticipates hiring 50 employees per month, reaching 500 employees at its new Glendale service center before the end of 2015.

Progressive supports retail partners and lease-to-own customers across the nation. The new support center, which opened in November, will be Progressive's second operations site and include underwriting, customer service, retailer support, and collections teams.

"We're looking to hire team leads, supervisors, and agents supporting our customer and merchant support teams," said Damon Johanson, Progressive's director of recruiting. "We're looking to hire 500 new employees by the end of 2015, so there are lot of great opportunities to get started and a lot of room for growth."

The career fair runs Tuesday, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m., at Progressive Leasing's service center at 5651 W. Talavi Blvd., Suite 150, in Glendale.

Progressive Leasing was founded in 1999 as a non-traditional purchase assistance option for credit-challenged consumers.
