Tele-Jobs: Working Solutions

They have Agents On-Demand(TM), where individuals can work as information agents for various companies and the whole set up is created so you do this work at home. The primary work is "call center" work such as -- order processing, reservations, enrollments, etc.

You are asked to fill out an online application. Then you are given two tests for screening purposes. If your qualifications match their needs they will notify you. Understand that all agents working with this company are "independent contractors, " so you are not an actual employee of the company.

Translation: You need to set yourself up as your own "freelance" business. They will not offer you benefits, a retirement plan, refund of expenses, etc. They also can not promise you consistent work.

That's the thing about being and "independent contractor" it's up to you to schedule your work to provide yourself with consistent work and a consistent paycheck. Please be aware of this any time that you decide to take on a freelance or independent contractor position.

I advise you to carefully read their FAQ, especially the section entitled: "What equipment do I need to work as an Agent?"

Working Solutions has a lot of good information. Read everything, before applying.

Please remember, dear job hunter, if your qualifications and experience do not fit the position, do us all a favor and refrain from applying. Employers do not want to be bombarded with resumes of people who can not do the job.
