We are looking for a Customer Service Representative to join our company. The hours for this position are Monday through Friday 8:45 AM-5:00 PM. The Customer Service Rep will report to the Customer Service Manager. We are located in heart of downtown Tampa, FL.
Customer Service Representatives are responsible for being the first line of defense when customers call in with an issue on their campaign or want to ask questions about the purchases they made online.
Representatives are assigned a certain amount of emails a day to reply to and need to answer customer inquiries in a timely and efficient manner.

- Take about 30-45 calls a day from customers and make sure to answer any questions they may have with their order- whether it is about tracking their package and where it is or if there was an error with the package they received.
- If they can’t answer customer issues, escalate issues to Supervisor.
- First level of response for the company so how efficiently and professionally issues are handled is important.
