Adam’s Is Hiring Customer Service Agents
Standard, Full-Time Schedule
Many businesses require you to work frustrating hours, especially businesses in the customer service industry. Those companies are often busiest on nights and weekends. This means you have to work when your friends and family aren’t working and then when you’re not working, your friends and family are. It can feel isolating to be out of sync with most people.
Another frustrating issue can be the amount of hours you receive. Some companies keep employees working below a certain amount of hours so they don’t have to pay benefits, other companies make employees work longer hours because they don’t have proper staffing.
At Adam’s, our agents typically work a full Mon-Fri 40-hour work week and receive benefits (mentioned below). During peak season, agents may have to rotate working until 7 or working a half day on the weekend, but that’s, at most, once per week. Outside of that, the work week is standardized as Mon-Fri 8 AM – 5PM.
