Work at Home Wednesdays

Work at Home Companies

If you are just starting your search into working at home, a great place to apply is West. They are a company contracted out to perform INBOUND call center duties for various companies. For example, the Home Shopping Network (HSN) contracts West to hire their home based customer service representatives. West is a pretty big company with many work at home opportunities. They offer paid training and if you get hired, you will be payed as an employee rather than an independent contractor. West, like any company, has its positives and negatives. I worked for them for a while and my experience on a whole was a good one. Some pluses include being able to make your own schedule and the flexibility of changing your schedule very easily. Also, some of the lines they offer are open 24 hours a day. For example, the HSN line, which is the line I worked, is open 24 hours a day. This allowed me to have the flexibility of working late at night or very early in the morning around my son's schedule. Also, you can't beat working in your jammies, laying in bed! The negatives are that sometimes it can be very difficult to actually get the hours you need. You sometimes have to resort to stalking the scheduling board to pick up your hours. The pay rate is ok depending on which line you work.

Tip: If you decide to give it a whirl with West, try your hardest to get the HSN line. This is the best line in my opinion. No pressure selling. The customers are long time HSN shoppers so they know the drill and most are really, really nice! I know other West at home employees have had success and enjoy other lines so by no means should you be discouraged if you don't get the HSN line. All I am saying is that if you have a choice, the HSN line is a great one!

More Money Mondays-Mystery Shopping

Mystery Shopping

If you'd like to make some extra money, mystery shopping is something you should look into. There are a lot of scams out there so please do your due diligence first. Some people are able to make a pretty good chunk of change by mystery shopping. Honestly, I don't know how they do it. However, for some extra spending money, free restaurant meals, and even free movies it is a good option especially if you work the shops into your current schedule. For example, if you have to run errands a certain day of the week, then schedule a few shops in the area. Some of the heavy hitters in the mystery shopping workplace are Shop n Check and Service Intelligence. These are great places to start out because they are newbie friendly. They don't always pay the best, but to get started quickly and see if this is something you want to explore further, they fit the bill.
