A retailer called Alan’s Factory Outlet is hiring for one such position, and it offers $16 an hour as the starting rate. So, there’s even a chance you’ll make a good bit of money when you apply for something like this!

This job, specifically, is for a Customer Service Sales Representative role. You’ll be in charge of handling customers’ phone call and emails Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
