Bilingual (French/English) Customer Service Agents $15.50/hr

Halifax, NS, Canada

We’re looking for extremely organized, capable people who enjoy routine, yet can switch gears at a moment’s notice.

Not only are you bilingual (English and French) but you probably have five apps open right now and are merrily juggling a game, a Facebook chat, and checking the bus schedule all at the same time. You’re focused and a brilliant multi-tasker. You’re adaptable, open-minded, and process driven. You like clear, step-by-step direction, but enjoy an environment that keeps you on your toes. You don’t need the memory of an elephant, but you’ll rely on your sharp-mindedness and organization to keep four – we repeat: four – different clients’ information at the tip of your tongue. 

We are hiring a class of two to begin training on December 11, 2019.  


Here’s the deal:

  • Full-time year-round position  
  • Rotating shifts falling between 7:00 am and 1:00 am, Sunday to Saturday.  Your shift rotation will include nights and weekends.  Ask our recruiters about the details and typical schedules. 
  • Bilingual rate (English and French) is $15.50 per hour.
  • Paid training provided.

What we offer:

  • Free employee and family assistance program for legal, financial, and health support.
  • Health, dental, & vision benefits.
  • Beautiful office space with loads of natural light, multiple break rooms, internet and TVs.
  • Employee appreciation events, treat days, and an amazing coffee program, ask us about them!

What you'll do:

  • As a bilingual agent (English and French) you will provide telephone and e-mail support for a broad range of customer service and helpdesk projects.
  • Quickly and effectively assess and resolve challenging situations following well-defined guidelines and procedures.
  • Provide customers with a superior service experience by listening carefully to them and providing information/solutions to their concerns.
  • Support clients in the banking, customer service and travel industries.

What you'll likely have:

  • A fearless attitude toward the unknown; the fact that no two calls are the same is exciting to you
  • Customer service experience that allows you to remain calm and cool even in the toughest situations -nothing can throw you off your game.
  • A collaborative "what-ever it takes" attitude and solid work ethic.
  • The ability to understand and apply best practices in problem resolution processes.
  • A calm, understanding approach when helping an upset customer – you know how to show people you’re on their side and you’re there to help them, no matter the problem!
