If you’re ready to find a new work-at-home job, you’re in exactly the right place. There’s a rumor going around that job hiring across the board slows down during the summer — and maybe this is true on a broad national level, but right now is a GREAT time to find work from home.
Some of these companies you’ve heard of, and some may be new to you. Many are nationally recognized names with stores and TV commercials and everything else — which should give you the confidence that you’re working for a “real company” even if you’re new to working from home.
That said, plenty of lesser-known companies, including the ones on this list, are perfectly legitimate and have just as good an opportunity as the bigger names. Don’t let unfamiliarity get in the way of finding the perfect work-at-home job for you! These are some GREAT online jobs that are hiring right now:
Amazon: Full-Time Seasonal Customer Service
Ever wanted to work for Amazon? Now’s your chance! The online superstore has just announced that they’re hiring again for seasonal customer service positions. These are full-time roles that will last up to six months, though there’s the possibility that you can be brought on permanently.
Amazon customer service is a great job for you if you don’t have a ton of work-at-home experience or don’t have a college degree. They ask for a year of experience in service work of some sort that involves dealing with the public, but my inclination is to go for it even if you don’t have a year of customer service on your resume.
If you want to snag this opportunity, move FAST and apply here…now! This is one job that’s going to fill up quickly.
American Express: Part Time Customer Service
American Express is a fabulous employer for at-home workers, and I’ve shared their job opportunities before. Their pay tends to be noticeably higher than other at-home employers, but they also expect a certain calibre of employee. If you’re able to meet their standards and enjoy the work, you’ll probably love the chance to become one of their Virtual Customer Care Professionals.
Right now AmEx is looking for some new part-time customer care workers, who are the “front line” with customer care. As a member of the team, you’ll take inbound calls from current American Express members to help them with general and account-specific inquiries.
The other great thing about working for American Express is that part-time employees are eligible for their benefits package — many part-time at-home jobs don’t offer that! There’s no stated education or experience requirements; instead, they’re looking for people who “get it.” If I were you, I’d jump on this application quickly and see what becomes of it.
Grubhub: Weekend Hours
If you’re looking for something part-time that you can do over the weekends when you’ve got some flexibility — for instance, a co-parent to look after the kids while you do a few hours of work — you might be interested in joining Grubhub’s customer service team. The main job you’d be performing is taking customer orders, though there may be some data entry as well.
The specific requirements for the job are that you put in a minimum of 20 hours between 12 noon on Friday and 12 midnight on Tuesday. Within those bounds, you’ll be able to work whenever you want, including in the evenings.
Plus, if you want to work extra hours, you can schedule those in whenever you want — beyond the weekend restrictions. Does this sound good to you? Apply here.
Priceline: Weekend Customer Service
If you’re fantastic with customer service, great at multitasking, or are looking for something that lets you do the bulk of your work on the weekends, Priceline may be the right place for you.
The job entails taking customer phone calls related to travel and lodging reservations, and you’ll be dealing with a wide range of customer service tasks — problem solving, researching solutions, answering questions, adjusting schedules, and more. There’s a certification program that will train you for everything it involves, too.
They ask that you work at least 25 hours per week, but at least 5 hours need to be on Saturday and the other 5 on Sunday. Other than that requirement, you just need to set a schedule that has you working your hours between 1pm and 1am, making it another good option for moms who can put in some quiet evenings. If this sounds like it’s up your alley, you can apply right here.
Warby Parker: Part-Time Customer Service
Have you ever heard of Warby Parker? Fans of this company absolutely rave about them! It’s an online shop for eyeglasses with a built-in program for trying on your new glasses at home. They’re able to offer super cute frames for less than you’ll pay in person, so I’m a fan of them both as an employer and as a business.
Right now Warby Parker is looking for someone to work in a customer service role part-time. You’ll be working with customers over email (which is great if you don’t want a phone job). Basic responsibilities include responding to inquiries about the order process, styling advice, and help with order completion.
The job is for a minimum of 15 hours per week, and you’ll need to be near Nashville or able to get there for two different three-day training sessions.
If this sounds as fantastic to you as it does to me, you can apply for the job here.
