Little do shoppers realize that the e-commerce industry that’s gaining popularity among holiday spenders is quietly growing in places like the South Florida suburbs. The ‘virtual’ worker a shopper communicates with in a chat or on the phone during an online transaction could very well be working in your own backyard.
Name brand e-commerce
“Even though Global Response has been in Margate many years, people here are still always surprised to learn some of the name brands with national and even global e-commerce businesses that we represent,” says one Global Response leader.
Cyber Monday, Black Friday nearing
Every day, Brand Specialists at Global Response – representing brands including HoneyBaked Ham, Lane Bryant and Justice – assist customers from throughout the nation with online transactions and other customer service via phone, email, chat and social media. As the retail season approaches Cyber Monday and Black Friday, the call center has been hiring and training hundreds of seasonal workers.
A recent National Retail Federation survey points to a season that for the first time could see online destinations become most popular, with 59 percent of those surveyed planning online shopping. Overall holiday spending is expected to climb as high as $682 billion in November and December and U.S. companies will hire a total 550,000 seasonal workers during the period, the NRF predicts.
