Are you sick of looking for a legitimate work from home job?

I know I was when I just happened to click on an ad and actually found a legitimate company looking for people wanting to work from the comfort of their own home. I can honestly say I was very leary. I assumed they would string me along and then require a one time set up fee or something to that nature. To my surprise, there was no such thing. I filled out the online application, submitted a voice sample, and then had an interview. I then went through the hiring process and have been working from the comfort of my own home since. I have learned that anyone requiring you to pay them money for information or to begin working is scamming you. If it is a legitimate job, they will be paying you.

I tried applying for one of those type of companies way back, and they had a series of Tests, etc. you had to pass before they could hire you, and since I did not pass them, I did not get hired. If I could make as much as I can working for someone else, and also have Medical working from the comfort of my home, I would Love to do this. Just not sure what it would take... I have Higher Speed internet, and only a Cell Phone for a phone... so not even sure I ever want to even try most places I have seen online like this.

The job I have requires a home phone and won't allow you to use your cell phone. I like it. I am an At Home Data Collector. I contact clients and conduct research surveys via the phone. I get paid weekly via Direct Deposit. For me it has been worth it as I live in a small town and would have to drive 50 miles each way to work in the closest city and with gas prices being what they are, it would not benefit me at this time to drive that far for a job.

Thank you but I won't pay anyone to give me a job. As my Attorney General's office pointed out, a legitimate job pays you, not the other way around.
