Operator Description:
You'll work in a call center environment to assist customers who want to place collect, person to person, calling card and third party billing calls. You'll also respond to inquiries or complaints from customers and help them resolve their issues by providing technical assistance. Or, if a technical issue is beyond your skill set, you'll refer them to the right department. Sometimes calls are dropped meaning that the customer is owed a credit. In that case, you'll record billing data. You'll need to be proactive and extremely professional while helping people find the information they are looking for. This is a great job for someone just starting out in telecom and can lead to increasing levels of responsibility and expertise.
