Hungry for a work-from-home job?
This one’s pretty sweet — and spicy, if you’re craving Chinese take-out.
If you haven’t heard of Foodler yet, hold onto your napkins. It’s an online restaurant ordering platform that lets those who don’t want to leave the couch order food from local eateries — for no extra charge.
Customers can order via its app or online. However, because technology is involved, the process doesn’t always go without a hitch.
That’s why it needs a few work-from-home customer service representatives — and pay starts at $13.50 an hour.
Side note: Foodler is only accepting candidates from Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maine, Missouri, North Carolina, New York, Oregon, Texas and Virginia.
Your Requirements as Foodler’s Customer Service Rep
Because this is a work-from-home position, you’ll be able to perform these duties from the comfort of your couch, or antique desk, or bed or kitchen counter. Wherever the space, it must be consistently quiet.
You’ll work as a liaison between restaurants and customers, handling inbound and outbound calls. You’ll communicate with your fellow service reps via email, as well. Translated: Be able to talk and write in a coherent, friendly manner.
You should be tech savvy, as you’ll be required to troubleshoot tech issues. To handle that, you need high-speed internet, Windows 7 or higher or a newer Apple computer (OSX 10.8 or newer) and a USB headset.
If you’re good at picking up on tasks quickly and have an eye for detail, great. You should also be flexible since you might need to work nights and weekends.
More concrete: An associate degree is required, but a bachelor’s is preferred. You also need at least two years of experience in call center customer service. Money-handling experience is nice, too.
How to Apply to Become Foodler’s Newest Employee
The application is straightforward: name, email, phone number, cover letter and resume. (Avoid any wonky mistakes.)
And if you have a bit more experience than I’ve described, you should look into Foodler’s customer support manager position.
In the meantime, order your favorite pizza, and start applying.
