In this position, you'll build relationships with some truly outstanding customers and wow them with your ability to dig into problems, bend over backward to find solutions and shine a light of kindness and patience along the way. (Think MacGyver, Simone Biles and Mister Rogers all rolled into one!) Whether you're handling calls, responding to e-mails or communicating via chat and social media, you'll be joining a first-class team that delivers a fantastic customer experience at every touch point. This position is on-site at our Carson headquarters.

  • Building partnerships with customers and internal team members
  • Developing knowledge of Lakeshore's products and services to deepen your ability to offer effective solutions and exceptional customer support

    Got the skills and experience? Here's what we're looking for:
    • 2-3 years of customer service or retail experience
    • Experience corresponding with customers through e-mail and social media
    • Previous call center experience, "Live Chat" experience and/or familiarity with a plus
    • Positive, customer service-oriented mindset
    • Professional verbal and written communication skills and strong interpersonal skills
    • Ability to process a high volume of inbound calls daily

      Additional Information

      And here's our end of the bargain!
      • Competitive compensation based on skills and experience, plus bonus plan
      • Excellent medical/dental and vision coverage-EPO, PPO and HSA
      • 401(k) retirement plan with company contribution (because you will retire someday)
      • Flexible benefits-choose what you like, ignore the rest
      • Exceptional training and support, and all the resources you need to be successful
      • On-site preschool for our employees' children
      • On-site employee gym for all levels/fitness needs
      • Generous employee discount
      • Casual dress---and we really mean it
        At Lakeshore, we know our diversity makes us stronger, and when everyone feels included and valued, we all win. We strive to embrace our differences and create an intentionally diverse and inclusive community that is representative of the teachers, families and children we serve.
