The video garnered over 2.2 million views and sparked debate over remote working in the comments. Many praised the use of technology for remote working.

“Honestly, everything the front desk people do can be done over a tablet anyways. Schedule, insurance validation, check in, etc,” one user said.

“Love it. what’s the point of technology if we don’t utilize it for convenience and better life quality? also reduces traffic for everybody,” said another.

“No really though. We don’t NEED to physically be at a job to be able to do it,” a third user said.

However, a few users argued that speaking to someone through a screen dulls the interaction.

“I think I’m old. This makes me kind of sad. I miss interacting in person,” one user said. 

Others envied the receptionist’s position.

“What a dream job seriously,” one user said.

“Where is this? Are they hiring?” asked another.
