Position Summary

The UI Call Centers are fast-paced, high-demand work environments. UI Customer Service Agents spend the day handling constant telephone calls and taking information over the phone from both unemployed persons who are seeking unemployment benefits, and employers. After the unemployed person enters basic information either online or into a telephone system, this position interviews the person as needed to clarify the reason(s) they are no longer working and obtain employment history and other information necessary to ensure accurate claim filing. In order to determine if a person is eligible for the UI program, this position will interpret and apply complex legal requirements, policies, and procedures, and will identify possible issues related to UI eligibility that may need further review by staff tasked with making the final determination.

UI Customer Service Agents must be able to work well with others as part of a team, organize work to meet deadlines, adjust to changing priorities and backlogs, work independently, exercise independent judgment, remain on the telephone handling incoming calls for long periods of time, and resolve calls within specified time limits. Bilingual UI Customer Service Agents must be able to provide customer service in Spanish as well as in English. For more information, please see the Bilingual Position Description.
