7. What will my schedule after training look like? 

Lithuania (LTU CS)

We work in 3 shifts: morning (07:00 – 15:00), evening (15:00-23:00) and night (23:00-07:00). Early requests can help you plan ahead and have a work schedule that is according to your availability. Note that the scheduler will give you an average of 4-5 night shifts per month. The number of night shifts can be increased by speaking with your direct Team Lead.

Indonesia – EN Remote

We comply with Indonesia regulations. 8 hours per day, 5 days per week.

Currently the schedule is made individually on weekly rotation (the schedule stays the same for a week and then it can shift to other hours) and is planned a month in advance. Please note that it can sometimes include late and weekend hours. Early requests can help you plan ahead and have a work schedule that is according to your availability. 

8. Will my role as a CS specialist change over time? 

Yes! After training, you will be working with simpler issues and learning how to focus on quality first. After you master quality, you will pick up the speed and get more challenging issues to work with. Once you get the hang of things and work independently, you will become a mid-level specialist and get a chance to lead a shift – guide others in order to have a good quality shift. After generating enough experience, you will progress to the senior role and also be invited to discussions for process optimization and improvement with the management team.

9. What are my growth opportunities? 

All members of Hostinger are eligible for internal progression. Each promotion is offered through internal recruitment processes that are offered by the People Team – the job ad includes promotion criteria to make you eligible. We love CS candidates – they hold the advantage of having extensive knowledge about our product and our customer. For that reason, most of the promotions are offered to mid-level specialists with good results who have already obtained that knowledge that makes them so desirable.

10. How big of a bonus can I get from upsells? 

There is no limit to your upsell bonus and it can only grow by percentage if you sell more.

11. How will my upsells be paid out? 

Let’s take an example for a better understanding: If you make an upsell on the 1st of March, the customer has 30 days to refund it in case he is not happy with the purchase. If you upsell something that is useful for the customer, most likely they will not refund it and keep the product. On the 31st of March, your upsell is considered as complete and will be added to your next salary payment, which would be the 10th of April.

We hope those 11 frequently asked questions covered your questions related to the role. Good luck to you who are currently going on our recruitment process. Additionally, to strengthen your understanding towards our 10 values, you can check out this article: https://www.niagahoster.co.id/about-us.
