What does a day as a CXA look like?
One of the best things about the CXA role is how varied the work is, no two days are exactly the same. That said, below is an example of what a day might look like as a CXA at monday.com!
9.00 – Grab a coffee and start the day by wishing our Australian team goodnight! Then it’s time to start doing what we do best and helping our customers. We’ll start to answer emails that have come in overnight, working with customers across the globe.
11.00 – Time for the daily sync with the team. We’ll review any new features that are being released that day, and discuss any important updates and upcoming events.
11.30 – Time to check the callback requests for the day. As we work with users across multiple time zones, we’ll start to assist the users located in Europe, answering any questions they have.
12.30 – Everyone’s favorite time of the day – lunch! Time to stretch your legs, grab some food and hang out with the rest of the team (in Zoom or in person!)
13.30 – Back to helping our users via email.
15.30 – Weekly 1:1 meeting with your team lead. This is a time to reflect on how you’re doing, how the previous week went, set goals for the week ahead, and raise any questions or concerns you have.
16.00 – Time to start wishing good morning to our American team, and calling back our US-based customers!
17.00 – Monthly meeting with the whole CX department to congratulate our new team members on joining us and colleagues for being promoted. We’ll discuss last month’s performance, and the exciting updates we have coming in the next month.
What are the hours like?
All of our shifts are 9 hours, including 1 hour for a delicious lunch (10bis / Cibus).
Generally, you can expect to start between 9:00 to 11:00, finishing between 18:00 and 20:00. We do have occasional 7:00-16:00 shifts.
Will I work in shifts?
Yes! We work in shifts to make sure that we can always provide our customers the amazing support they expect. When you join the team you’ll be able to let your team leader know your shift preferences and they’ll do their best to adjust.
Will I work on weekends/holidays?
You can expect to work one Friday shift every 4-6 weeks as part of the role, based on the number of team members we have on staff. You’ll then get Sunday off instead to chill at the beach or run some errands. 🙂
Team members can volunteer to work extra shifts on holidays, as they come with extra pay! 🙂
How important is English for this role?
Our team operates in many languages but English is our go-to. Through our client interactions (both written and live), our team and company meetings, all the way to our nights out you’ll need to have strong English skills in order to bring your best self to the position.
Will I work night shifts?
When you join the CX team at monday.com you’re not just joining the Tel Aviv team, but also our larger Customer Success Group. With offices across America and now in Australia, we can cover all time zones. This means that currently the Tel Aviv team does not work night shifts.
What does the progression route look like?
One of the best things about CX at monday.com is the variety of progression routes you can take. We are invested in your growth! We want to see you succeed but it will take effort and passion to learn. You might decide to progress within the CX team or move into account management, becoming a trainer, a CX tech specialist, or even a team lead. We like smart and approachable people that generate impact, across the company 🙂
How long does the recruitment process take?
It should take a few weeks, end to end. We value our candidates’ experience as much as we value our customers’ experience – we try to do our best to provide a fast and efficient process to everyone, and we’ll do our best to have your process be the same!
