It’s why our team knows how to connect with customers, human to human.

At VIPdesk, we believe in creating a supportive workplace where we listen to one another, where all feel comfortable sharing ideas, where we work together to achieve our goals and share in the celebration of our successes.

"work from home like everywhere else offers ... "
Current EmployeeCustomer Service Representative
Do you like endless back to back calls ? Have you ever worked at a company where you were punished for doing a good job ? Your best work was used for someone's promotion above you while they ignored you or lied about the job you are doing to keep you down ? Have you ever felt like they are just using you and don't care about you as a person and just see you as a mechanism for corporate profits ? If you want more of this then please work here...

"sales sales sales. "
Former EmployeeCustomer Support Representative
Sales was the only thing company cared for. Company will call random people, some times they are at work or home or just out and about and would transfer them to our department. Biggest issue was that most of the calls customer makes is for a specific company or was looking online for something and now they are speaking with us and are completely confused and I'm suppose to explain everything and sale sale sale wile reading the consents (plural) and most of the time customer is either angry, just hangs up or is like no!

"Potential Employee"
Former EmployeeNone yet
The interview process is trouble there is no live interaction with these folk. I would recommend moving on, search for a job somewhere else They advertised for one position and in the question ask you question that did not match the job at all.

"Great place to work"
Former Employee
Fantastic culture. Great leadership. Able to work remotely. Woman owned business. Best customer service around. White glove touches. High end customers.
