Key Responsibilities:

 

The Customer Escalations Advisor role offers you the opportunity to be the voice of TELUS to our residential customers. Together with the customer, you will analyze product and service requirements and develop positive solutions that are mutually beneficial for the customer and for TELUS.

 

We have two primary objectives:

 

Our first objective is to resolve complaints and reduce product cancellation by promoting client loyalty. Client service is a key component to our success and yours! Handling client queries related to accounts and billing, programs, promotions/campaigns and products and services will underpin our competitive advantage.

 

Our second objective is to pro-actively place outbound calls to our residential subscribers in an effort to reinforce customer value and loyalty and ensure customer needs are being met.

 

Our department operates 7 days a week. Shifts are scheduled based on a set rotation and posted 5 weeks in advance. Currently the hours of operation are:

 

9:00 am to 8:15 pm Monday to Sunday

 

Our next hiring class is scheduled for July.

 

Please note this is a regular full time position. Student scheduling flexibility also available so long as you are available to work a minimum of 20 hours per week across a minimum of 3 shifts per week. Evenings (4pm-8pm MST) and weekends (9am-8pm MST) availability required for students. Full time availability is required though during onboarding/training = 12 weeks.

 

The Challenge:

 

Your immediate and ongoing challenge is to ensure that customer needs are understood, and that appropriate solutions are presented and sold. This means that complaints are addressed at the first point of contact whenever possible. Business unit and performance objectives must meet or exceed target! And, you must develop and sustain cooperative and productive interdepartmental relationships to expedite problem resolution.

 

 

What's in it for you?

 

At TELUS, we understand that a big part of our success comes from the people we hire, which is why we honor our employees with an excellent compensation package with a starting wage of $24.09 per hour. You can also take advantage of our campus setting complete with paid training programs, state-of the-art equipment and career development planning that will help you gain the tools needed to help you shift your career into high gear in various exciting roles, including quality coaching, floor support, front-line management, training and IT support. Also, in order to insure your success in your new role, you will be provided with 10 weeks full-time paid training for which you must be available to attend.

 

After training you may be scheduled full time = 37.5 hours per week.

 

Our culture supports a learning-based environment supported by pay-for-performance and a personal life balance. In many of our contact centers there are opportunities for you to become eligible for our At Home Agent program.

 

The TELUS At Home Agent Program is an innovative work arrangement that enables team members to carry out their work responsibilities from home, rather than from the traditional office location. An At Home Agent is able to work from a dedicated workspace within their homes using the same desktop tools as a team member who works in the office. All new employees start in the office environment and have the option to apply for the AHA program during internal postings.
