Administrative phone lines, emergency phone lines, closed-circuit television, and various alarm systems are some of the tools that are utilized in day to day operations. This position requires being able to multitask, working in close proximity to other team members, and a drive to provide the highest level of customer service.
Minimum Qualifications: High school diploma or GED, the ability to communicate both in writing and verbally with a diverse population, the ability to handle stressful situations and maintain excellent customer service focus.
