In my continued search to find the best websites to save you time and money, today it's time to work from home.
I get more requests for this than any Ways 2 Save non-deal-related topic, especially with the rising cost of gas.
Many of you out there want the freedom and command over your schedule that working from home provides. The problem is, there are many bogus companies that claim they will employ you, there are identity theft scams and often the work is terrible and the pay is lousy.
Today I'd like to re-introduce you to a company that is consistently praised for breaking down the 'work from home' stereotype.
Alpine Access currently serves five Fortune 20 Companies and they are one of the most trusted and well-regarded in the industry.
The hourly pay for starting jobs is $8-$12 and you have access to benefits that include a 401(k) and health insurance. You have to pay a $45 fee for a credit and background check but applicants will not have to pay for training or some of the aggravating monthly service fees that other companies add.
You have to work at least four hours, five days per week but there are different shifts and full schedules. I'd apply the same logic to this job opportunity as any other job chance. You're not guaranteed a job, not everyone is hired and any company guaranteeing to pay you from home is likely a scam.
Alpine Access is different and has its own requirements which I'd make sure you're aware of before you apply. Those include specific requirements about having a physical telephone landline, internet connections and functioning computer. There's an interview and if you're not selected, you'll be out the $45 application fee/background check.
Jobs are primarily call center-related but there are also jobs for analysts as well as I.T. positions. AOL is just one of the many big companies that contracts through Alpine Access.
They're based out of Colorado but employ thousands of workers across the country. They currently have 3000 employees and they recently hired 300. Everything is done through their site including hiring, pay-checks and interviews.
Just something to consider if you're in the market for a job and the prospect of working from home appeals to you. CLICK HERE.
