Customer Service Representatives are required to have strong communication skills and are considered the “front line” of the company they work for, as they are most likely to be the first person a customer interacts with.

Fast learners, eager problem-solvers, savvy with technology and courteous at all times, Customer Service Representatives can make or break a customers’ impression of the company they are interacting with.
