What specific job responsibilities do you have here at Moda Fabrics?
I’m in Customer Service, so I resolve customer issues & questions; take & place customer orders; review/release web orders. I double as the office receptionist so I direct new walk -in shoppers and handle overflow calls through out the day. I also create graphics and signage as needed, and keep the showrooms updated with new product samples as they come in.
