Come join us. You’ll add value to one of the world’s most iconic consumer brands and be part of our company with a life-affirming purpose to inspire meaningful connections. Our products, content and experiences aim to enrich all lives by making a genuine difference in every life, every day, and our business is focused on bringing the value and relevance of Diversity and Inclusion to every brand, product and person we touch.  Our overarching enterprise D&I Framework and plans demonstrate our belief and value in having a diverse and inclusive workforceHallmark’s D&I efforts will continue to represent ongoing progress and reinforce our commitment, as will our intentional focus on bringing more diverse talent into our business and onto our teams. Hallmark has been recognized as one of Forbes and Statista 2020 Best employers for Diversity, Women and New Graduates.


Our Consumer Care department is an upbeat, steady to fast paced environment. We have a close knit team that is always willing to help. It's refreshing to be in a collaborative work space where knowledge sharing is the norm so that we all succeed in providing great service. We have brief daily huddles for updates as well as weekly meetings to discuss department stats and initiatives. Our role aligns with Hallmark values by providing unscripted, engaging and affirming care. We exercise patience regularly while breaking down technical troubleshooting steps for our largely non tech savvy consumers to follow. We strive for our calls to feel as though they are talking to an old friend and not a robot. This is now a completely remote role and we strive to create ways for our team to stay connected, engaged and have fun while maintaining our daily goals.


The role of the Care advocate consists of staying current on updates to our services. We must be online and ready to take calls and answer emails throughout the day to meet the department goals. We have a small team of 23 that services multiple lines of business such as Hallmark Movies Now and the Shoebox app. The services are more technical in nature and requires some working knowledge of apps, streaming services, and devices. Our consumer base is older and requires lots of patience and hand holding even through some of the simplest tasks like getting logged in or more technical troubleshooting steps. Attention to detail is useful and often helps diagnose issues early and escalate them with a sense of urgency to get them resolved. The proper recording and tagging of consumer cases is required andhelps to inform developers and stakeholders of the severity of an issue in order to prioritize their workflow and decision making.
