You’re a people person.

You love talking to people, you love learning about people, you love helping people.

And now you can be a people person from the comfort of your couch.

Business services company Concentrix is hiring multiple work-from-home product and purchase support representatives who can provide world-class customer service for a third-party technology company.

You can choose between full- or part-time positions, which are open to anyone in the United States except residents of Vermont, Alaska, California and Seattle, Washington. You’ll need a flexible enough schedule to work varying shifts, including weekends and/or holidays.

Besides being a people person, you’ll need problem-solving, critical-thinking, analytical and data-entry skills, according to the job posting.

And although soft sales are also part of the job description, Concentrix promises there are no quotas  to meet — you’ll only be expected to offer callers extensive product knowledge and helpful customer service.

Pay starts at $10 per hour, but the company notes that the rate can vary based on the skills required for a particular assignment and on geographic location.

And while the equipment requirements list might seem extensive, the company’s careers FAQ page says you don’t need to have any of it in place until you are offered a position and begin training (i.e. — Don’t buy anything until you get the job).

Depending on the assignment, there may be additional equipment requirements that the company will disclose upon making an offer.
