Our mission at Amazon is to be Earth’s most customer-centric company, and our award-winning Customer Service team is a key part of achieving that goal. Doing our best for our customers is where we get our energy, and that’s why you’ll find we approach things differently here. You won’t be asked to read from a script or learn dialogue by heart. Instead we’ll provide you with the training you need to problem solve for our customers. You’ll bring your unique personality to every customer conversation and deliver the exceptional support experience our customers love.

What will you do as a Customer Service Associate?

As an Amazon Customer Service Associate, you have a very clear purpose: to prevent issues, solve queries, and delight our customers. You’ll be the first point of contact for our customers based in the Netherlands by answering their requests through phone, chat and/or email – this includes everything from order and product questions to payment matters and website guidance. Our Customer Service Associates use a variety of tools to navigate, research, and review solutions, and communicate effectively with customers.

What are your hours?

This role requires working variable hours to match when customers need us most. You will work late evening and day shifts and your work week is minimum 40hrs, i.e. 5x8hrs (5x7.5h shifts including two paid 15-minute breaks and one 30-minute lunch break which is unpaid). In order to match our customer demand, we schedule based on a variety of different shift patterns within the operating hours of 6 am and 12 am Monday to Sunday. You may be required to work on national holidays and Sundays and will be compensated accordingly. Schedules will be known 6 weeks in advance to ensure that your personal life can plan well around your work. You will learn more about your exact schedule closer to your start date.
