Love what you do.

At Room & Board, we provide our customers with a seamless multi-channel experience with our stores ( 16 throughout the U.S.), our website ( www.RoomandBoard) and Customer Care which is our 1-800 phone channel (1.800.301.9720), chat and email.

The majority of Customer Care calls/chats/emails are inbound with most calls coming from potential or existing customers engaged in the purchasing process. They are often seeking design advice and ideas, clarification about products, or delivery information as they look to make or follow up on a recent purchase. Other calls/chats/emails are from customers post-purchase who have questions or need support. As a Design & Customer Care Associate, you will ensure a positive experience as you ask thoughtful questions, listen empathetically and anticipate needs and present a total personalized solution for the customer. In working with customers, you'll heavily leverage our website as well as email and Live Chat.
