Full Job Description


We are currently seeking a team of ambitious, detail-oriented, Seasonal Exceptions Representatives (Work from Home) to join our Customer Service Team. Our front-line customer service team helps our customers via phone, email, and chat, but there's more to customer service than that. The people who handle our behind-the-scenes service issues make up our Exceptions Team: they process credits, handle returns, proactively contact customers if their order is delayed, and analyze contacts for trends. Basically, they make sure our customers are happy and provide a seamless experience. This position is fully remote and lasts through the end of December.


You are extremely detail-oriented, self-directed, and hardworking. You can handle not only phone calls, emails, and chats, but can also switch gears immediately to handle the Exceptions workload. You are incredibly bright, enthusiastic, dedicated, and care about the customer experience. You offer the same personable interaction that you'd want to receive as a customer to create an exceptional experience.


UncommonGoods offers remarkable designs by independent makers, and we do it with a positive impact on people and our planet. Learn more about our products, B Corp certification, Better To Give program, and cool team members you might be working with.

  • Work quickly and with the highest levels of accuracy.

  • Extensive experience with problem-solving, de-escalation techniques, coordinating, and executing issue resolution.
  • Previous experience in a customer service environment is preferred, but we are willing to train the right candidate.
  • You must be able to work on a small team as well as on your own. You're self-directed and self-motivated.
  • Flexibility is needed as schedules may vary week to week. We'll be open 24 hours a day from Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve, and we're open every day of the year.
