This Sports Retailer Needs a Full-Time Customer Service Rep on a Temp Basis

Consider yourself a professor of sports and the great outdoors?

Academy Sports + Outdoors, a prominent retailer, is hiring a full-time, temporary customer service rep in Alabama, Oklahoma or Texas. This job requires six or more months of customer service experience. Previous work-from-home experience is a plus.

Bilingual (Spanish and English) applicants or those with knowledge of Academy products are preferred. Home office requirements include a high-speed internet connection, a computer with an up-to-date operating system and a webcam, dual monitors, a USB microphone and a distraction-free environment.

A digital video assessment is part of the application process, according to the listing. The listing did not include pay, but Glassdoor estimates the hourly wage between $9 and $10.

Founded way back in 1938 as a tire store in San Antonio, Academy has expanded into an sporting goods giant with 245 stores across the nation.
