Job Snapshot

Job Description

Hours of operation 3 weeks of training 8am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday. After training 10am to 2pm Monday through Friday.


Product Specialists positively and professionally respond to customer contacts received from a variety of sources providing complex or technical customer service. Customer service may include detailed product information, problem identification, needs assessment, and/or sales. Representatives troubleshoot customer issues, researching answers from a variety of tools and background knowledge, including scripts, actual products, product literature, internet, and computer databases.

Omron agents are confident, forward thinking and open minded. Because Omron agents are required to make valid decisions based on the issues in the call, dictated by client protocols, the ability to think outside the box for a successful resolution is critical to ensure customer and client satisfaction and be confident in that decision.

  9. Omron agents are detail oriented. Because many of Omron’s products are FDA-approved or Class 2 Medical Devices, attention to detail is paramount. Asking customers for all of the caller’s information even on the most basic calls is a requirement. We are FDA regulated and can be audited on the information that the agent captures and verifies.
  10. Omron agents also place customer orders on a third party website. Although we do not sell directly, we are required per call to make appropriate recommendations to the callers on when they should purchase a new unit or part and provide them with the accurate information on the Omron product that will best fit their needs. We also are required to let them know how that the option to purchase from us online for their convenience is available. There are no sales goals in place because we are not a sales account, however, to Omron, this is an extension of customer service and must be done on ever applicable call, so confidence with sales is a plus.
  11. Omron agents are technology aware. Omron is moving quickly in to the Bluetooth arena and while we have a Tier 2 for challenging issues, our agents need to be confident when speaking about applications, syncing, smartphones, data transfer. While these skills can be taught, the confidence to present the information once learned must be present.
