A really great work from home job!!!

I just wanted to write and let all of you know about a really good work from home job I found. I wrote on here a while back (like one year ago about wanting to find a job working from home. Well I filled out lots of resumes at jobs I thought were legitimate but were just scams. Finally I got two really good offers and I wanted to share them with you. These are real jobs. You get a paycheck from them and you get paid by the hour. The first was West At Home. This company works for a variety of other companies like Verizon Wireless. There is more companies but this one is the only one I know of because this was the one I was signed up to work for. What I had to do was call in and do a voice recording reading on of there scripts and then they called me back. After that they sent me some forms to fill out like an application, a W4 (I think that's what its called) and a form I had to take and get notarized stating I was who I said I was. After that they email you training materials and a website you can go to that teaches you how to handle calls. All you need are a phone, a computer, and typing skills (NOT MUCH). I did the training but I decided to go with another company WESTAT. The qualifications are the same but you would collecting data for companies. This is a real work from home job. A lot of people there use this as there second job. The starting pay is 8.50. (You will get raises) If you are bilingual it is 10.50. And if you work after 9:00pm and on the weekend you get 2.00 more and hour. The pay may sound low but you are working from home, you dont have to put gas in the car or buy lunch, or even get dressed up. They have great hours for you to work. They just ask that you work in sections of three hours. I hope this helps some of you that are needing additional income. It does take a while for them to get back to you. I think it took them two weeks to contact me and then they send you your training e-mail(you also get paid to train). This is a good company and the people there are great.

That actually happened to me. I dint have a baby but I got locked out of the website and I didnt know who to contact. Finally I got an email saying I needed to reapply. I even called them when I later got there phone number and they told me to apply again and someone would email me with a new training session. That never happened. I have worked for WESTAT for over one year now and I love it. You should give them a try.

Sounds really interesting. Is it something that you have to have a quiet house to do? It sounds like making calls, right? I am going to keep this info. Someday when my house gets quiet and I still want to work from home it may be something right for me.

Yes the house has to be fairly quiet. If you want to know something funny. I have a large walk in closet that I put my computer desk in and I have a noise canceling headset. I have three little girls so it can get a little loud. You do make calls but they make calls all over the US so you could work while the children are at school or while they are sleeping.

yes I have heard of this company and I have not heard any thing bad about them either. What you are making from home is not bad for starting wages. Some people don't even get that working out of the home. I will say it is so nice to work from home and make enough money to stay working from home. Good luck on your new job.
