We’re all enjoying the holidays now, but there will be a day coming very soon when those pesky holiday bills will need to get paid. (Don’t you hate how it always happens like that?) If you’re looking to earn some extra cash without having to venture out into icy winter temps, check out these work-from-home customer service jobs.
There’s no commute, you can keep an eye on the kids (which means you might not have to fork over half your wages to a sitter), and you can work in your jammies. Plus, some of these jobs offer killer benefits (like an unlimited Starbucks card!!). Dream jobs? We think so!
As the name suggests, this company provides customer support, and they are hiring a remote services technician. As noted in the posting on Indeed.com, this is an entry-level job providing “inbound customer service support for basic troubleshooting and resolution of service related problems for high speed internet and wireless gateways.” So knowing how the internet really works is key. Applicants must also have excellent communication skills, and be able to communicate technical information to inexperienced users over the phone. After finishing training, you’ll make $10.25 per hour, and also get paid time off as well as medical, dental and vision benefits. Apply here.
The title of this job is “customer success manager.” You need some design chops, like PhotoShop and Sketch, for this one. More than 2 million designers, product managers and marketers use InVision’s product, including companies such as Twitter, Uber and Evernote (not a shabby client list, eh?), according to The Penny Hoarder. This app company was voted #21 in Glassdoor’s 2017 small- and medium-sized “Best Places to Work” list, and there’s something to be said for that. And will you please look at these benefits: Competitive salary, Macbook Pro (!!), health club membership (you pick the club,) unlimited Amazon books, an unlimited Starbucks card (WHAT??), half-days on Fridays, health care and stock options. Boy, howdy! Apply for this dream job here.
