PHOENIX – Exercise-at-home juggernaut Peloton announced plans to launch a member support center in Tempe later this year.

The company said it will open the 50,000-square-foot campus near Price Road and University Drive in October.

Peloton told KTAR News 92.3 FM on Wednesday it’s looking to hire 350 employees for the new location.

Mason Paul, a Tempe member support supervisor, said the company is seeking customer service candidates with outgoing personalities.

“No one wants to call in and talk to a robot, no matter how efficient it might be,” he said in a Tuesday press release.

“We’re also looking for experience, whether in a call center, a grocery store, a gas station or even a college. Sometimes it’s even better if you don’t have call center experience because you have more customer service experience and not customer ‘handling’ experience.”

Peloton sells internet-connected exercise bicycles and treadmills and offers subscription access to livestreamed and on-demand workout classes.

The company, which surged in popularity as people shunned gyms during the COVID-19 pandemic, started member support operations out of its New York headquarters in 2014. Four years later, Peloton opened its first dedicated member support center in Plano, Texas.

KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Jeremy Foster contributed to this report.
