‘Tis the season for holiday hiring.

Yes, I know it isn’t even Halloween yet, but as stores are increasing their staffing to handle all the upcoming seasonal demand, you’ll continue to see these types of job openings on our site and Facebook page.

The latest holiday job we’re highlighting: Williams-Sonoma, the coveted kitchen-and-home brand, is looking for full-time seasonal customer service associates.

Get Paid for Good Customer Service

This work-from-home position connects associates with customers by phone, email or live chat to provide assistance with orders, returns and replacements, among other related duties.

To score this gig, you should have a high school diploma or equivalent, as well as strong data entry, typing and communication skills. You’ll need to be able to navigate through multiple systems and internet pages.

Having a year or two of previous customer service experience will look good on your application.

Since this is a remote job, you’ll need a desktop computer or laptop, high-speed internet and a home phone or cell phone with a compatible headset. The listing says you’ll receive more detailed requirements about what else you’ll need during the application process.

Enjoy Sweet Benefits

According to the job listings, the salary for seasonal customer service associates is $11 to $11.50 per hour depending on location, and associates are expected to work 30 to 50 hours a week. You could end up earning between $330 and $575 a week, pre-tax.

Some locations offer virtual training while others require you to live within one-and-a-half hours of a Care Center and train in person. Training is paid.

Williams-Sonoma also offers promotional opportunities, contests and reward and recognition programs, but I saved the best work benefit for last — a 40% employee discount on most merchandise!

Just be careful you don’t spend all your hard-earned money buying kitchenware and home decor items with your discount!
