Joining the customer service team
A role in customer service typically involves responding to inquiries from existing customers through phone and email. Additionally, it may encompass assisting customers through website chat or various social media platforms. Common scenarios addressed by customer service include queries related to invoices, contracts, product advice, pricing, promotions, purchasing, subscription changes, and cancellations.
Depending on the company, a customer service representative may also undertake administrative responsibilities, such as managing customer bookings, creating support cases, liaising with craftsmen and technicians, remote troubleshooting of various systems, completing order forms, and issuing invoices and contracts.
For customers, interacting with a customer service agent often constitutes their primary interaction with a company. Consequently, it is crucial that this interaction feels personalized and authentic, with the employee possessing the necessary knowledge and resources to assist the customer effectively. Customer service employees may either be directly employed by the company they represent, referred to as working “in-house,” or employed by a partner company responsible for handling customer service on behalf of another organization.
A typical workday overview
Most customer service departments adhere to standard office hours, typically starting between 08:00 or 09:00 and concluding at 17:00 or 18:00 in the evening. However, some situations may necessitate evening hours as customer inquiries often surge after regular working hours. The day typically commences with a team leader assessing the projected call volume for the day and establishing performance targets. This is followed by 3-4 work shifts, each involving varying levels of incoming calls. The volume of calls can fluctuate depending on the specific customer, external events, ongoing campaigns, and prevailing circumstances.
What’s the experience of working in customer service like?
Working in customer service is predominantly a rewarding profession that allows you to serve as a problem solver for customers, employing various clever methods to assist them. It’s both fulfilling and personally enriching to bring happiness to a customer. This role hinges on crucial skills such as problem-solving and interpersonal abilities. When faced with a question or issue you can’t immediately resolve, you have access to a database where you can easily find answers to customer queries. You gain proficiency in communicating with diverse individuals, encompassing people of varying ages and backgrounds.
While it’s no secret that handling displeased or irate customers can pose a challenge, such situations are also some of the most growth-inducing aspects of the job. Although these encounters may not be the most enjoyable, they occur less frequently than you might imagine. Acquiring the ability to manage irate or dissatisfied individuals in a composed and systematic manner, calming the situation, and ultimately making the person content, is an invaluable skill applicable in various life contexts. Typically, you work within a team environment where you can always seek guidance from a colleague or your immediate team leader. Furthermore, you receive continuous coaching and training to enhance your proficiency in customer management, encompassing knowledge about the company’s products or services, conversational techniques, language usage, and sales strategies.
Salary trends in the field
Through diligent efforts influenced by both governmental and various independent and labor organizations, there have been notable improvements in wage conditions on average. What has now become nearly an industry norm includes:
- Elevated base salaries and minimums in accordance with collective agreements
- Pension benefits and additional perks such as healthcare allowances
- Opportunities to impact one’s income through sales-related incentives
A strong foundation for your career
Whether you possess a passion for customer service or are simply seeking a call center position, we believe that everyone should experience working in customer service or a similar role at some point in their career. The development of communication skills, coupled with problem-solving abilities, fosters increased social competence and enhanced stress management skills.
