(KMOV.com) -- So how is the St. Louis job market and economy?
The area does have growing industries that are hiring.
Express Scripts has had a big impact on the St. Louis area and its economy in a relatively short period of time.
The company was founded in 1986, but the really big push has come in the last couple of years while other companies struggled.
In June of 2010, the company opened its Technology and Innovation Center, creating hundreds of new jobs.
In December of that year, the company announced a $73 million expansion of its north St. Louis County headquarters- including the promise of more jobs.
In April of 2012, the company got FTC clearance for a merge with MedCo, creating the largest pharmacy provider in the United States.
Just last month, Express Scripts announced it will hire 1,500 more highly paid workers.
Wednesday Brian Henry, Vice President of Corporate Communications at Express Scripts, joined News 4 for a sit down interview.
