Online pet retailer Chewy Inc. plans to hire 400 workers in Florida over the next few months, the Sun Sentinel reports.

They'll work at a customer service center in Hollywood. The new center currently employs 1,000 people.

The 100,000-square-foot center is located in a former mall. It operates 24 hours a day, according to the Sun Sentinel.

The customer service roles are "a great way to get your foot in the door at a company that wants to promote from within," Kelli Durkin, vice president of customer service for Chewy’s, is quoted saying.
