Skills

  • Listening: While customer service associates do a significant amount of speaking and writing, you must be able to listen to customers and fellow team members. Customers may describe complex problems, share detailed time-lines and otherwise communicate information that you will need to listen to carefully.

  • Patience: As a customer service associate, you will encounter some customers who are frustrated or difficult to communicate with. Demonstrating patience with every customer will help make both their experience and yours more enjoyable. It can also help you resolve a customer's issue quicker.

  • Problem-solving: A customer service associate will need to solve problems daily. Sometimes these are small issues, such as connecting a customer to another team member. Other times, they are larger issues that may take a longer time to resolve. A strong associate will be able to quickly understand the customer's problem and propose the best solution.

  • Computer skills: You will conduct most of your work at a MAC computer using Office 365. General computer knowledge is a strong skill requirement. All order based activity is via cloud systems.
