FORTMILL, S.C. -- Red Ventures announced Thursday plans to hire 290 salespeople at its Fort Mill headquarters at the beginning of the year.

To get started, the company will host an interview day Jan. 8. For the first time, it is looking to hire part-time workers as well as full-time.

The hiring comes as the sales and marketing firm accelerates its growth after inking partnerships with three new companies. Red Ventures said in August that it would hire 1,000 people over the next several years, and is slated to break ground on a new office building in the first quarter of this year.

The typical salary range for an inside sales position at the company is between $35,000 to $65,000, including uncapped commissions. Red Ventures now has about 1,500 employees across several locations. About 900 are in Fort Mill on its campus just south of Ballantyne.

In 2009, the company had about 350 employees.

Candidates interested in the interview day must pre-register at the company s website,
