Help New Parents With a VIPdesk Remote Customer Care Job ($15/Hour)

Want to help frazzled new parents attempting to use the devices that are supposed to help them?

VIPdesk Connect is hiring a customer care representative — aka brand ambassador. You’ll be working exclusively for Owlet Care, which sells infant care products like monitors and heart rate trackers. For this job, you’ll respond to customers via phone, chat, email and SMS, helping them place and track orders, answering questions about the products, troubleshooting technical issues and assisting with warranty returns.

You must currently reside in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia or Wisconsin. (Here’s why some jobs have state restrictions.)

Full-time team members are scheduled between the hours of 3 p.m. and 1 a.m. EST up to five days per week and will be scheduled for one weekend shift (Saturday or Sunday) each week.

The next paid training class is scheduled to begin on or about November 13. You’ll need to remotely attend daily classes Monday through Friday, from 3 to 10 p.m. EST.
