As the leader in the home warranty industry, we have a network of more than 11,000 pre-screened home service contractors and 45,000 professional technicians that provide convenient, reliable expert service to our customers.

What is this role about?

American Home Shield Authorizers play a very important front-line role interacting with our valued customers regarding their home warranty plan coverage.

What does a “Day-in-the-Life” look like?

This fast paced role is based in one of our Customer Contact Centers across the country. In this role you are interpreting contracts and coverage for inquiries from customers, technicians, and contractors related to HVAC, appliance and other home systems; authorizers often work across departments and utilize multiple resources to effectively resolve inquiries for our customers.

• Coordinating appropriate follow-up with customers or contractors to ensure issues are resolved satisfactorily

• Informing customers of non-covered claims and effectively explaining the reason why

• Providing your technical knowledge and expertise to other colleagues

What do I need to be successful?

• High school diploma or GED is required

• Prior customer service or related experience is preferable

• Experience with HVAC and other mechanical systems highly desirable

• You are able to effectively interpret home warranty plans, contract coverage, etc.

• You enjoy engaging with customers and providing quality service

• You are good at solving problems and explaining solutions

• You are effective at conflict resolution

• You excel at de-escalating upset or frustrated customers

• You thrive in a fast paced environment where multi-tasking is necessary

• You have strong communication skills – interpersonal and written

• You have solid computer skills including having worked with Microsoft Office products
