Discover Financial Services /zigman2/quotes/208747867/composite DFS -3.67% said Tuesday it plans to hire more than 1,000 employees for its customer care centers by the end of 2022.

The starting hourly wage for full-time employees is $17.25 an hour, which "may vary depending on certain criteria," and with "shift-differential" opportunities to earn up to $20.70 an hour. The open positions include customer service representatives, cardmember assistance representatives, underwriters, personal loan specialists and team leaders. The stock, which slumped 1.8% in premarket trading, has dropped 6.9% over the past three months through Monday, while the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX -0.64% has lost 3.4%.
