Do you have a Customer Service Background? Wark-At-Home for these Companies.

Have you ever searched the term “work-at-home” on the internet? If so, you know that the search will return a list that is bursting with scams and legit opportunities available on the internet are harder to find. When someone first starts out researching the work-at-home job opportunities they become overwhelmed, and most get frustrated and quickly vacate the notion of becoming a work-at-home mom or dad. I personally have been very lucky to have found a small local company, I know the owner, that I do all of the clerical work for out of my home (mostly data entry). If you are not lucky enough to find a local company to work-at-home for, there are some online companies that pay for customer service reps or virtual administrative assistants. I will advise you that most of these companies will require you to have high speed internet and a quite space in your home to answer calls. If you are a stay-at-home mom, schedule yourself to work when the kids are at school so that you can concentrate on your calls. Be prepared that these companies have a hiring procedure that can take some time to process. The majority of these will require a fee for a background check and/or drug test. Before you ask, “Why do I need to go through a background check?“, realize that these companies are intrusting a person whom they have never met to take information from their customers. Some of this information maybe addresses or credit card numbers, if you are taking orders. A background check is one of the only ways that they can make sure that you are trustworthy to take their customer calls. Don’t let the hiring process sway you from applying. This can be a great opportunity for you to get a reliable work-at-home job. When you check out a company make sure that you check out requirements for you to get the job and if there are any computer system or equipment requirements. Most companies have you purchase a headset, which are not too costly. Keep in mind that some of the links below maybe not hiring. Keep the link and check it often for any new jobs that become available.

  1. Yeah! I agree with you there, "realize that these companies are intrusting a person whom they have never met to take information from their customers." that's why i believe that, Customer service is vital to the success of any business. Despite how good your product or service is, customer service can make you up or it can break you. So you better treat your customer in a very nice way.Thanks for sharing.
