            Ok Awesome! I will do some research for you and see what I can find. As of right now, I would recommend American Express if he don’t mind being on the phones. The starting pay is around $16 per hour plus incentives and bonuses. They really prefer individuals with degrees, so he may have a good chance getting on with them.
