Work From Home Call Center Jobs

Posted by on March-23-2009 under Make Money

A Work from Home Call Center Job is a completely legitimate Work At Home Opportunity. Essentially, you work for a call center company. You take the calls from your home, and are paid by hour or minutes. You get lots of flexibility around creating the schedule, and can choose to work as little as you want. You do not have to pay anything to get started (unlike Work from Home Scams, that ask you to make an upfront payment to get info about job)

This my third article in my series of articles on Legitimate Work from Home Jobs. I have already talked about my inspiration around writing this series here. In my previous article, I had talked about Work from Home Scams. So, now that you are aware about the pitfalls to avoid, we can move on to a Legitimate Work From Home Job.

As I mentioned in the opening paragraph, Work from Home Call Center Jobs are one of the few legitimate work from home jobs. There are some companies out there that might ask you some money to give you info about Call Center companies. But they are all scams – avoid them. I will try to present all the info that you need right here, so you do not need to pay anyone for that. Here is a thumb rule: Employer needs to pay you, and not other way round.

What is a Work from Home Call Center Job?

In a Work from Home Call Center Job, you are hired by a call center company. Such companies have contracts with clients who have chosen to outsource their call centers work (there is a lot of economic sense for them in doing so). Then your company assigns you to take calls of any one or more of their clients. For that, you need to login to your computer(connected to internet), and start talking on your phone. Of course, you have to pre-define the schedule in which you will be available, but you get lot of flexibility around choosing your schedule. This is one of the few Work At Home jobs that can be taken up as a full time career as well. Click here to be notified via email when a similar article is published.

How much Can I Earn in a Work from Home Call Center Job?

Earning potential varies based on the companies you work with. Norm is between $7 per hour to $15 per hour. You might also get paid some extra bonus based on calls completed. I have a friend who earns $1350 each month + $150 average monthly bonus. So, it gives a nice chunk of money. Also, you can choose to work with multiple companies, and then spend more hours with the one that pays more.

What do I need for a Work At Home Call Center Job?

Good Question. Almost all the Virtual Call Center Jobs require that you have following equipment of your own: A desktop computer (they don’t accept a laptop), a landline phone, an internet connection, and a headset. That is it. If you do not have any of this equipment, then you will need to buy it yourself, and you will not be reimbursed for that. Apart from that, your monthly expenses for phone line and internet are not paid back to you.

Are there any upfront costs in Work from Home Call Center Job?

Once you are offered a position, some Virtual Call Center companies need to get your background check done. You have to pay for that. It is generally $50. Apart from that, you have to pay for equipment, and ongoing phone and internet expenses as mentioned above. However, all these costs come into picture only after you have been offered a position. Companies do not charge you anything for interview or voice audition. Those who does are scams – avoid those. Click here to be notified via email when a similar article is published.
