Working at Home for a Call Center


If surveys aren't your thing and you are more interested in not just supplementing your income, but full time employment you may want to consider working for a call center. Companies will hire telemarketers, customer service representatives, assistants, and transcriptionists. These sorts of jobs are great if you need flexibility in your job. Unfortunately with a lot of these jobs there is a waiting list, but that should not discourage you from throwing your name in the hat.
Most of these companies will hire you as an independent contractor, which basically means you are responsible for handling the taxes. You are going to have to have high speed internet, a "traditional" phone line, and a place in your home where you can avoid any interruptions. To do this kind of work you must be self motivated and willing to deal with possible feelings of loneliness and isolation. If you can't work at least 15-20 hours a week, you probably shouldn't do this. Many of them will also require a drug and or background check. You can typically expect to make $8 - $15 an hour depending on the kind of work and who you work for. There will be training and possibly even a test and many companies will not pay you during this time.
Below is a list of companies you can check out. Each company has been run through the Better Business Bureau and has received a rating. Obviously there is no way I could personally try all of these sites, but let me give you some advice. First of all if there is something inside of you telling you not to do something or that it is too good to be true, LISTEN! Read all of the fine print before you agree to anything. Never sign up for anything based upon that websites promises. Always read reviews from credible sources and always run that company through the BBB.
