Whenever I think of Priceline, I think of this guy:
It’s the Priceline Negotiator. The one with the frantic chorus that sings out behind him. “Priceline Negotiator!!!” (Yes, the exclamation points are necessary.)
Well, the Negotiator needs your help now.
Priceline, one of the country’s largest travel sites, is recruiting about 75 work-from-home customer support agents between now and June.
Priceline is Hiring Work-From-Home Customer Support Agents
Your job as a customer support agent is to answer incoming calls from Priceline customers. Chances are, you’ll assist these folks with changes to their lodging or transportation needs.
The job can be challenging, according to the NexRep job listing. Think: Multitasking between several applications, researching solutions, speaking with customers, adjusting agendas…
However, don’t fret. You’ll have a support team who’ll train you.
Do You Meet Priceline’s Job Qualifications?
Requirements range from software needs to personality traits. See if you have what it takes.
- You’ll need two monitors. But honestly, having two monitors is super nice. And you can snag one for something like $80 on Amazon.
- You’ll need to have Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer.
- You’ll need to be able to do basic internet searches and be familiar with Mac OS or Windows operating systems.
- You’ll need to be able to type at least 35-40 WPM. (Check your WPM — and practice — with these free tools.)
- You should have customer service experience. A call center background is a plus.
- Major plus? Travel or hospitality industry work experience.
- You should have some travel experience… as in you travel at least once a year and have used an online site to research and book your reservations. Maybe this is the perfect excuse to book your vacay now.
