Charter Communications (CHTR +0.9%) is hiring hundreds of workers in San Antonio, part of the company's plans to "onshore" workers and build up its call center staff in the U.S.

With its acquisition of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks, the company has looked to nearly double its call center footprint in the San Antonio area, a popular location for call centers. It also inherited a TWC call center in Harlingen, Texas.

The company has said it plans to relocate 20,000 jobs to the U.S. in connection with the acquisitions.

Last week, Charter filed a mass-layoff notice tied to letting go 258 workers (in accounting and finance) in North Carolina.
