Sean M

Perhaps you’ll fall in love with our culture, like Sean.

 

“When I applied, I didn’t see myself working here for very long. You hear horror stories about other call centers… I quickly found out that’s not Blue Ocean. It’s not the way we do things, it’s not the way it looks, and it’s not the way it feels. And so I’ve now been here over 13 years, and I feel that’s a testament to what the culture is like here. I started as a frontline agent, worked my way into different roles, and am now an HR Manager.”

 

Sean M., HR Manager

Or maybe our team will inspire you, like Karim.

 

“Even after 12 years, every day when I show up, it still feels like my first day. I feel energized, everyone is cheery, and these amazing people keep you motivated to keep coming back to do more.”

We’ve got something special. Just ask Josephine.

 

“When I interviewed at Blue Ocean, sitting in the fourth-floor lobby with all the windows and comfy couches, I kept waiting for it to turn into a call center. I kept thinking it was a weird façade… but 10 years later, we’re still not this traditional call-center-feeling business. And the growth here is unbelievable. If you really focus, do your job, and are committed, you can grow with Blue Ocean.”
