In Need of a Job?


I’ll be leaving my job of almost 12 years next month. It’s not because I’m dissatisfied, but we are moving five hours north. But there have been times in the last twelve years I’ve thought about another job, I’m sure I’m not the only one to do this.

I wish I would have found out about Global Response earlier. I think I would have at least gone on an interview. They have customer service call centers that work with many wonderful companies like, Crate & Barrel, National Geographic, Blue Cross Blue Shield and JC Penny, just to name a few.

What is a call center? When you call a company, like your insurance company, you get put through to a call center. Things can happen fast at a call center, there lots of employees answering the phones at the same time.  When I make calls to insurance companies I can sometimes hear others in the background. Everyone is usually very polite.

I was checking out Global Response and see they offer good benefits and on-site child-care. This would be a HUGE benefit for me. My daughter is only a few minutes away from me now, but to have her on site would be awesome! They have a 401k, which I would love to have had at my current job. Health and dental benefits are offered, as well as vacation, sick and personal time. They have picnics, team spirit days and it sounds like they really care about their employees. Check this out- after 20 years, you get a trip for two anywhere in the world.

Maybe I should re-think my move! Just kidding…

Their main headquarters are located in South Florida, and they have two smaller call centers in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. If you’ve ever thought about customer service careers and live in these areas, check them out!
After our move, I am hoping to take some time off working outside the home and really focus on my blog. Savannah will be going to pre-kindergarten in August, so I may get a part time job then. Maybe there is something similar in Jacksonville.






I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
