The other 20-50% of your time will be spent in an office setting sitting for prolonged periods of time utilizing the computer and phone. While on customer sites the environment can vary and there is potential to be exposed to hazardous conditions, extreme temperatures and/or dusty or noisy conditions; although this is rare. The position also frequently communicates with customers and co-workers and must be able to exchange accurate information in an understandable way.
