What a customer service representative does is serve on the frontline of communication with customers who need information on a product or service or who need assistance with an order or purchase they’ve made.

Each customer service representative job differs—for example, salaries are often determined based on experience and come with performance bonuses. However, some companies have earned the reputation of being particularly attractive to job seekers looking to fill a customer service representative position.

We’ve selected five such companies. We provide links to the company’s information page on the Lensa job search engine, as well as some data points worth considering to help you make a more informed decision in your job search.
