    Recruiters speak in the same near-spiritual terms. What's he looking for in a candidate? "An attitude -- a genuineness -- a sense of what it takes to be one of us."

    “It takes a special individual to become a Customer Service Agent, and we look for folks who are eager, who are “quick on their feet” with “outside the box” thinking and who have caring, friendly natures. Because we operate almost around the clock (including holidays), Customer Service Agents work unusual hours and are on their feet eight hours a day. Yet, almost all of these Employees will tell you how much they LUV their jobs.”
