Nationwide company is now hiring CSRs to work from home! click here to apply.
I'm a stay at home mom and I've searched for years to find real work from home. Now, I've actually found it. Through research, trial and many errors, I've found that there are many companies that will hire you as an EMPLOYEE and not just as an independent marketer. I've been sucked into MLM scams, bogus sales ops, mail stuffing and penny for your thoughts surveys.
I just wanted a regular "real" job. With the company I work for now, I'm paid an hourly wage with benefits and my taxes are deducted, just as if I worked in a brick and mortar facility. This allows me the time I need to spend with my children being a family and focusing on their homeschooling and not having to deal with the drudgery of office politics, latchkey kid syndrome or the ever stressful, daily commute. Not to mention the savings, no more last minute runs to the drycleaner's, or the furrowed brow as I watched my gas tank fill and my bank account empty. Yeah, I don't miss any of that.
But, while most love the idea of going to work in your PJs, the reality is it's not for everyone: if you live for water cooler banter and recaps of Neilson's top 5, if you thrive off of constant criticism and supervision or have poor time management and organizational skills, realistically, it probably won’t work for you.
If you do decide to pursue a work at home opportunity, never pay a fee! Jobs do not cost money! In some cases there are a few legitimate employers that will have you cover the cost of background checks or pay deposits for software or equipment. Some will have you pay up front and some will deduct it from your earnings. I've never paid a fee with my current employer and I've always received my pay on time and even have direct deposit.
There is hope out there but you have to do the research and find your niche. I have tons of listings, links and sites that I personally have tried and found many success stories in even if they did not work out for me. Now, by success stories, I by no means want to imply that anyone will ever be rich working these positions. However, you can gain riches in your life by having a moment to stop, look around you and appreciate what you have with your family and home life because that's exactly what working at home is doing for me!
