A Day In The Life of A Customer Service Representative

A Day In The life Of A Customer Service Representative as told by a Customer Service Representative

Last week I gave my account of a day in the life of a customer service representative at Frame USA. Today I got one of our real life CS Reps to talk about what its really like.

The title, “Customer Service Representative” may not sound glamorous. It probably makes you think of dead-eyed office drones answering calls with the same, canned responses while they fiddle with their social media. At Frame USA, however, that is not the case at all. As a Customer Service rep here, there are so many different tasks and responsibilities, that we couldn’t be robots, even if we wanted to.

When it comes to answering calls, there’s no possible way to throw out tired, pre-rehearsed phrases and clichés. The custom nature of our products makes for a wide array of different questions and concerns from customers, many of whom are unfamiliar with framing, matting and production. With so many different frame styles, virtually every call is a different story and we have to know what we’re talking about so we can represent Frame USA with confidence and to make sure the customer is getting exactly what they want.

In addition to phone calls, we here in customer service are also fielding emails of every conceivable nature. Customers looking for price quotes; sales reps placing large, complex orders; poster questions; returns and assistance with damaged items…the list goes on.

The customer service team at Frame USA also works closely with every other department to make sure that processes are working smoothly and customers are receiving what they need in a timely manner. We run up and down stairs, around corners and throughout every nook and cranny of the building to get things done.

Being a customer service rep may never garner us magazine covers or inspire songs to be written but it is a daily adventure at Frame USA and it’s never boring.
