Become a Customer Service Representative

Work remotely and set your own schedule

As a Customer Service Representative, you’ll be placing outbound calls to company shareholders who are being asked to vote by proxy regarding matters that directly affect their stock ownership, such as the company doing a stock split or a proposed merger or acquisition.

You will need to closely follow a detailed script, while presenting options and receiving and entering votes.

This remote, flexible opportunity pays independent contractors $11/hour.


Remote & Flexible

You’ll be placing outbound calls and making money from the comfort of your own home.

Plus you’ll enjoy flexible scheduling, where you use a self-scheduling platform to select when you work and when you don’t. You’ll have the freedom to schedule around your own needs, the needs of your family, and the important events in your life.

Initially, hours of operation will be 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM ET, Monday through Friday. It is anticipated that hours of operation will expand to 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM ET, Monday through Sunday. You’ll have the freedom to choose your own schedule within those hours of operation.


Certification options

94% of independent contractors would recommend NexRep to their friends and family based on their certification experience.

Certification will take place within a live, instructor-led virtual classroom. You’ll join other independent contractors for a fun, interactive, and informative certification experience.

Certification runs from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM ET each day for two consecutive days beginning either 6/8/2020 or 6/10/2020.
