“They're dealing with billing issues, meter reading, calling about special assistance programs, anything like that,” explained National Fuel Employment Senior Manager, Valerie Hawthorn. “It's not an easy job. Our customer service reps do get trained on a lot of different topics. They have to respond a number of different variety of customer calls coming in,” she added.

The only requirement is having your high school diploma or a G.E.D. “You don't have to have phone center to be considered for this job. For us, it's somebody who believes in customer service,” Hawthorn said.
