The Senior Customer Service Representative plays a high impact role in the Customer Service Call Center. The incumbent serves as second in command in a Customer Service Call Center team providing back-up to the Team Leader. The Senior CSR will function as a CSR but also assist their teammates with escalated “supervisory” calls, serving as subject matter experts, answering questions, coordinating team activities, and providing informal coaching to CSRs in their team. Senior CSRs serve as a buffer between CSRs and the Team Leader/Manager, providing guidance or direction on how to handle a customer request or the best way to proceed with an issue. Senior CSR’s must be role models for CSRs, demonstrate excellent work habits, good judgment, thorough knowledge of products, procedures and processes and possess excellent interpersonal skills for handling both internal and external clients and customers.
Senior CSRs may also be called upon to help the department by serving as subject matter experts on new initiatives, conducting up-training classes, assisting with quality monitoring, assuming a temporary supervisory role to replace a supervisor on an extended leave, serving as a liaison with an interfacing department, or assigned to special projects.
The Senior CSR must work closely with the Customer Service Center Team Leader to identify, report and resolve all CSR, client, customer and operational issues that impact service quality.
• Meet monthly key customer service call center performance goals for client/customer satisfaction, quality, productivity and key performance metrics.
• Monitor and evaluate CSR monthly performance, including call/email and after-work monitoring (using call recording and quality assurance applications), review productivity and attendance reports and coach staff members to improve performance.
