These jobs come from a legitimate work at home employer and are a direct result of the COVID-19 virus that has disrupted traditional contact centers worldwide.

Before you apply, please keep in mind that these shifts are available 24 hours a day 7 days a week which gives you some flexibility as to when you want to work up to 40 hours a week. These jobs are open to the general population that resides in the United States but you will need to have the following qualities and items:
- Strong work ethic
- Good communication skills
- Fast Internet connection
- Computer and USB headset (Mac computers allowed)
- Google Chrome or Internet Explorer
Normally this company would require you to have a landline phone and a Windows-based computer but they made an exception at this time. They have over 1,000 work at home jobs that need to be filled so if you know of someone that is currently looking for a job, needs income due to loss of a job or would like to help during the Coronavirus crisis, please apply online today.
Just in case you were wondering, any who are disabled and military spouses can apply too. They are also encouraging those who have not worked in contact centers long to apply. Here are the job details below.
