Chances are, you’ve written a big fat check to Enterprise for a rental car, but now it’s time to turn the tables.
Enterprise Rent-A-Car, a go-to rental car company, is hiring for a wealth of work-from-home customer service and reservation sales representative positions.
But first, I have to note that these positions are only currently available in a handful of states: Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Utah.
If you don’t live here, you might want to rent a car and start driving. (Just kidding.)
What Does a Representative for Enterprise Do?
Customer service representatives and reservation sales representatives have similar responsibilities.
You’ll work with Enterprise customers to answer questions about reservations, products, services and solutions. For the angry customers, you’ll need to be able to work through issues in a “tactful manner.”
You’ll be in your home, which is awesome, but you should settle in and get comfy because Enterprise says you’ll be given repetitive work tasks. You also can’t simply decide to sleep in one day — attendance and punctuality is key.
In order to succeed, you need to familiarize yourself with all things Enterprise. However, you can do this during the five weeks of paid training (Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. CST).
Speaking of pay, it starts at $12.50/hour — plus the opportunity to earn commission based on performance. Enterprise also has some awesome benefits, so make sure to ask about them.
Your 40-hour schedule depends on need and could require you to work morning, afternoon and even evening start times. You’ll also will give up some weekends (unless there’s a religious holiday).
Are You Qualified to Work for Enterprise?
You must be authorized to work in the U.S. and be at least 18 years old.
You also need some experience: at least a year spent with a previous employer — no job-hoppers!
To become a customer service rep, you need one year in customer service experience. For the reservation sales rep, you need only six months of experience in customer service OR sales.
For both jobs no crazy technical skills are necessary. You should just be able to “toggle between computers screens and programs,” the listing states.
However, there are computer requirements, like no Macs, headset with microphone necessary and internet access provided by cable or DSL. For more numbers and acronyms — like kbps — about the requirements, read the job listing closely.
Speaking of job listing, you can find the list of states and jobs on Enterprise’s career page. Get in gear, and apply today! (Get it?)
