You’ll be joining our support team who works side-by-side with merchandise, order management and our digital sales teams to provide a wholesome, enjoyable experience for everyone of our online visitors and customers. Responsible for the timely resolution of all questions, comments and issues, our customer service team members will handle incoming contacts through multiple channels and cover a variety of scenarios.
Some customers will come to us knowing exactly what they want, while others will need help creating a schedule of orders that makes sense for their pet’s needs. While you must be able to respond to everyday requests such as order changes and delivery inquiries both quickly and accurately, the ideal candidate will also be able to solve customer problems when solutions aren’t obvious and require critical thinking.
We are looking for individuals who can do the “easy stuff” but can also rise to the challenge of handling more complex issues and drive continuous improvements in the customer experience.
