Environment
We are currently a smaller team with lots of opportunity for growth. Our current target is to be at 38 agents. We have one manager (Jody) and one assistant manager (Deadra ) on the floor. Agents each have their own cubicle with 2 monitors and a laptop. This is a call center with a high volume of incoming calls. Agents are expected to follow all Genpact policies including dress code and attendance. They receive two 15 minute breaks and one 30 minute lunch each day. We are located in the far back of the building so it is kind of a long walk to the restroom. Danville location has a large break room with microwaves and commercial refrigerators with soda / snack / sandwich vending machines. We have a vendor (Charlotte’s) that comes in on Thursdays and Fridays during the lunch hours *cost is between $6 and up for soups / salads and daily specials. We have water and ice machines throughout the building and encourage refillable cups / bottles.

• Skype
• Cisco Finesse
• Verint Enterprise Workforce Management
• SAP
• AS/400
• Internet Explorer
• And more…

What it takes to be a customer service agent in this process:
• Very professional phone voice / conversation ( no slang or jargon, correct pronunciation, non-abrasive)
• Able to work in a fast paced, ever changing environment
• Able to multitask – we toggle between multiple computer screens and programs all day long. Agents have 2 monitors as well as their laptop screens. They are expected to type information as they are speaking to customers as well as switch between programs and/or screens – very quickly. *a minimum of 45 wpm is needed in order to keep up.
• Ability to remain positive and empathetic to unhappy customers (agents will get yelled at, called names, and cussed out – they have to be able to let it slide off their shoulders and remain professional and pleasant)
• Detail oriented/Attention to detail – they must get the information they collect from customers correct.
• Ability to follow directions and remain patient and calm *ever changing environment, IT issues, changing updates, upset customers and field reps
• Excellent customer service skills – this is #1 - without over servicing. The goal is to keep the calls as short and sweet as possible while helping each customer.
• Must be self-motivated. This is a role with minimal supervision other than monitoring agents through the system. Agents must be motivated to keep working when they are supposed to be working. As this department is fast paced there is no time for chatting with your neighbor, extra breaks or going over breaks or lunches.
• Attendance – we need agents who will be here every day that they are scheduled. Agents get scheduled time off of course
