Because of our many clients, we can offer a wide variety of calls or chat service queues that you might find exciting: Customer Service, Account Management, Technical Support, Billing / Collections, and Inbound Sales. Just as if you were sitting in a tradition call center environment, the main responsibility is to answer back-to-back calls and customer service inquiries during your shift to assist customers and resolve issues on each call, just as if you were working inside a traditional call center.
