Introduction to Direct Interactions
Based in Seattle, Direct Interactions operates contact centers staffed by American agents nationwide.

The COVID-19 virus has disrupted traditional contact centers worldwide. Clients are turning to Direct Interactions for help. While our primary work is handling inbound calls, there will be opportunities to handle outbound calls, chats, emails and more. (Note: The outbound calls are customer service or B2B inquiry calls, not telemarketing). We encourage you to submit an application, there has never been a better time to start your work-at-home career!
At Direct Interactions, you will work with some of the kindest and most professional contact center agents in the country. You will help people in need and know that you made a positive difference in their lives. Even if you have not worked in contact centers for very long, we are interested in learning more about you!
