Working as part of a small team of highly trained call center customer service professionals, the Agent will accept training, guidance, and direction from an experienced Call Center Manager.

This position is best for dedicated individuals who understand and embrace the power of teamwork. While individual initiative is welcome and encouraged, the success of the HOLO Card program requires participating as a dedicated part of the HOLO Helpline team.
