What can applicants do to stand out when applying for a position at your company?

We want to hire nice, smart, empathetic, friendly people and empower them to do whatever they need to do to take care of someone and turn them into a brand promoter.

Customer Service is the first thing that we look for on a resume. Retail experience is a must – handling customers in real life prepares you for speaking with them over the phone, email, live chat or social media. Tell us an impressive story about a time you saved the day for a customer and you’ll move to the top of our candidates list.

When you apply you should be sure to have the following experience to be considered for many of our positions:
– Live Video Experience in some capacity (even using our own apps to stream anything at all!)
– Ability to work early evenings and on weekends
– Willingness to learn about operations and how our business functions on a day to day – don’t hold back.
– Customer Service Experience in any capacity. Tell us about how you saved a customer’s day! The more creative the better.
– Competitiveness. Customer Care will often have ‘ninja battles’. Who can respond to the most emails in an hour with the best feedback? We also need someone to play ping-pong against!

Don’t be afraid to speak up – we take feedback very seriously. If there is a process or a task that doesn’t make sense, we are fortunate to have the flexibility to change for the better.

Thanks to Laura Marciano for answering the questions on behalf of the Livestream team.
