In this position, you’ll receive incoming calls from American Express card holders and make personalized travel recommendations based on what the customer is looking for and your own knowledge of the travel industry.

It’s essential that you’re personable and able to build rapport with customers, according to American Express.

You’ll be assisting travelers with domestic and international air, car and hotel arrangements to create memorable travel experiences, so American Express is looking for someone with work experiences in those areas.

“We want extraordinary travel counselors who can surpass our card members’ expectations by creating travel experiences of a lifetime,” according to the listing.

They’re hoping to hire someone with extensive domestic and international destination knowledge, including tips on up-and-coming destinations.

This is a 100 percent remote position, but if you live near one of the company’s service centers in Phoenix; Lawrenceville, Georgia; or Sunrise, Florida; you won’t be able to work remotely.

You must live within the 48 contiguous states or Hawaii. If you get the job, American Express might send someone to your home to view your home office and ensure that it complies with their standards (they don’t want any frayed wires or other dangerous items in your office).

The company will also send someone to your house to install high-speed internet and a land-based telephone service.

Unfortunately, American Express didn’t reveal how much this position pays or if benefits are included. Generally speaking, the company say it offers health, dental and vision insurance, a retirement savings plan and plenty of other perks.
