About the Position

Your role is handling a high volume of incoming phone calls from motorists with unpaid parking tickets as well as calls from motorists calling for information and assistance with digital parking meters.

Digital parking meter calls are fast paced calls from motorists who call an automated system and if their telephone number is not recognized by the system they are routed to our agents for an explanation of how parking via cell phone works and for assistance in registering them within the system so they can park at meters without coins as well as calls typically include registration calls as well as FAQ’s.
