Job Description:

Technical Support Associate-CUS001614Position ProfileIf you have a passion for technology and a desire to help others, you may want to consider a career at U.S. Cellular.

This is no ordinary call center. This is a U.S. Cellular Customer Care Center; a place where you receive outstanding training and the leadership you need to succeed. As someone with the knowledge and expertise to help our customers who call with technical needs, your ability to listen fully to uncover the issue and offer compassionate guidance will set the stage for success in this role. Your ability to educate customers in addition to offering solutions is a strength that will inspire customers to become our advocates.

You'll gain an edge if you have an associate's degree, with a bachelor's degree preferred. To be considered, you will need to have two years or more related experience with at least nine months spent in customer service. While previous experience in the wireless industry will enhance your ability to serve our customers, past roles where you served in a "help desk" or troubleshooting capacity in a high-volume call center would also equip you with the skills you need to succeed.

You should be able to talk to customers who are experiencing issues with their Apple, Android, or other wireless devices in a way they can understand, to bring a resolution that creates loyal customers. You should also have a technical understanding of Internet connectivity, networking terminology, web and e-mail protocols, and experience with Apple and Microsoft operating systems. Being there for your customers' changing needs is important, so you need to be open and flexible in scheduling your time around their needs on the weekends and holidays.

Key to our "Dynamic Organization" is your ability to make connections with your fellow associates and your customers. It leads to an atmosphere of respect, integrity and trust, which will go a long way towards resolving a customer's issue in a positive manner.
