Customer Service Rep jobs in Rhode Island are open
Posted on September 8, 2013
The state of Rhode Island is looking to fill several customer service rep jobs in Rhode Island.
The Business Workforce Center at the RI Department of Labor and Training hosted a recruitment event, Wednesday, Aug. 14.
The center was helping an area contact center hire up to 75 customer service representatives to support HealthSource RI, Rhode Island’s health care exchange.
The fair included an orientation by contact center personnel as well as select on-site interviews. In addition to hiring English-speaking representatives, the company is interested in hiring bilingual Portuguese and bilingual Spanish representatives.
Department of Labor and Training Director Charles J. Fogarty adds, “These new job opportunities are a direct result of Governor Chafee’s proactive efforts in launching Rhode Island’s own health care exchange.”
The starting salary for the call center positions is $12.70/hour, with premium wages offered for bilingual agents. The jobs will be located at the call center’s Royal Little Drive offices in Providence.
It is unclear if all the openings were filled.
The RI Department of Labor and Training offers employment services, educational services and economic opportunity to both individuals and employers. DLT protects Rhode Island’s workforce by enforcing labor laws, prevailing wage rates and workplace health and safety standards. The department also provides temporary income support to unemployed and temporarily disabled workers.
