Why are all work at home opportunities so full of cr*p! I have some friends that say, there making so much money from staying at home and working, but they dont want to share there secrets! I mean, I have been scamed about a dozen times now, and so far it seems to be that I have not learned my lesson yet. Im so addicted to work at home, but I just can't find, what i think im looking for! Im sooo lost anymore, is there anyone out there that know's a good work at home opportunity? My ears are wide open for any discussion! Happy readings everyone! Jennifer

This growing trend throughout the country is focused on agents handling incoming customer service inquiries from their homes while connected to a network via computer and landline (no cell or cordless) phone (which you must provide). There are two distinct business models in this industry: independent contractor or employee. Prior sales or customer service experience is a plus, but not a requirement. Bilingual skills are also an asset. Two companies, Alpine Access (www.alpineaccess.com) and Working Solutions(www.workingsolutions.com) hires virtual (online) agents as employees. Other companies, including Willow CSN (www.willowcsn.com), LiveOps (www.liveops.com), VIPdesk (www.vipdesk.com),and the West Company (www.workathomeagents.com) among others, require agents to incorporate, and they're hired as independent contractors. Hourly wages range from $8 an hour to $15 an hour, which is determined based on experience, skill level, and the specific needs of the client you're serving. Ask in advance how the company pays its agents. Some pay hourly from when you clock in until you clock out. For others, the meter runs only while you're on an actual call; you're not paid for downtime between calls. Good luck - I work for Alpine Access.

Jennifer, I work for West and LiveOps and have an interview for ACD Direct on Saturday. They are very much like a real job, but you can work your daily schedule around your life. Which I love because I have a very hectic personal life. West doesn't charge any fees. LiveOps and ACD Direct you have to pay a $30.00 background check fee only after you are hired. From personal experience West has more lines that you can work and offers a great variety. I can't go into more detail here due to my Independent Contractor Agreement. LiveOps pays you more per minute on average. ACD Direct I will have to get back to you on. If you would like more info just message me here, or IM on MSN Messenger at tammyeledge@hotmail.com . Also a great place to start would be www.workplacelikehome.com/forums they have all of the incoming customer service inquiry companies listed there.

Are you looking for a work at home opportunity which usually means home business or are you looking for a work at home Job? Big Diffrence, most work at home opportunities do require a start up fee and they dont make you money real quick for the fact that you have to build your business. I have a work at home business that I love but after a year I am still building my business and I will never stop building my business because there is no limit on how how much I can make. If your looking for a WAHJ not a business then you shouldnt have to pay any start up costs at all unless its for equipment you dont have. There is a ton of scams out there. Luckily I found something legit my first time around but I see the stories of people being scammed every day which is complete BS that people actually do this to other people. Anyway here is some sites that may be helpful to you. For Work at home JOBS http://www.WorkatHomeCareers.com this is a actual job search engine and there is very legit jobs on there and a few opportunites. http://www.WAHM.com A message board with lots of companies listed in the telecommute section also very helpful members http://www.telecommutingmoms.com Another message board with job leads. Also if you are interested in a home business the try http://ShowMe.TopRateBiz.com Good luck in your search and I hope you finally find what your looking for!

I am also looking to that. I guess people doesn't want to share their real secrets because they afraid that you can do better than him/her or even steal part of their profits. Or may be they had been tried very hard to find these secrets and don't want others to get it so easy.
