Are your working right now? Maybe you have been looking for a job for the longest and have not found anything yet. I have always wondered that there has to be companies out there whom want to do database entry or customer service work out of their homes. The problem is that there are many rip-off work-from-home outfits that claim they will find you work for an upfront fee. They are just trying to make a quick buck off you.
I have done some research and I have run into this list of companies that you can apply to work from home. They claim to be legitimate but of course, you should check them out thoroughly yourself before getting involved.
If you find this information useful pass it on to your friends and family and come back to this site comment so that it will help other people. The Power of 2 people helping others!
Here is the list of companies:
• AlpineAccess.com – Virtual call center provider using home-based customer service agents. They charge $45 for a required background check.
• Arise.com – Answer calls, e-mail and chat requests for global companies at home. Some users have reported a $13 background check fee, a $99 assessment test fee and other charges.
• ConvergysWorkatHome.com – Be a home agent providing customer care, human resources and billing services
• IntelliCare.com – Call center company that provides clinical and non-clinical telephone services to health plans, healthcare providers, and care managers nationwide. Anyone who is not a qualified nurse needs to work at one of their bricks-and-mortar call centers, not from home.
• LiveOps.com – Virtual call center using remote and home-based agents. All applicants are required to undergo a mandatory background check that costs $50. For an optional fee of $175, a more extensive background check allows you to work with specific Fortune 200 companies that have partnered with LiveOps.com. You also have to install a second, dedicated, telephone landline for this work — only to be used for LiveOps work.
• TeamDoubleClick.com – Be a virtual assistant
• WAHM.com – An online magazine for work-at-home moms
• West.com – Be an “at-home-agent,” with duties including obtaining, entering and verifying customer information, answering questions, resolving issues, explaining sales features or offering additional products or services. Some users have reported being asked for their Social Security number when filling out the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) info. However, filling out the WOTC is strictly voluntary — not required.
• WorkingSolutions.com – Be a home-based customer service agent
Now, one small piece of advice before you take this route of work-at-home opportunity. Make a list of your talents and arrange them ranking from excellent to poor so that you can match with proper company and come up with a plan that suits you.
