If we were looking for an opportunity to work from home, these are the 15 opportunities we’d tackle first. All are legitimate stay-at-home work jobs, and this site does not receive any compensation if you choose to work with one of them. (See also: How To Make Money Without A “Regular” Job)

  • Enterprise – The well-known car rental company often hires at-home customer service representatives and reservation agents who work with Enterprise customers by telephone.
  • TTEC (TeleTech) – Offers work-at-home customer service opportunities. From their site: “As a TTEC@Home associate, you’ll use TeleTech’s proprietary technology to support and assist customers with a variety of customer service and technical needs. This could include helping customers over the phone, via chat, or on social media. Best of all, you can do it all while wearing your slippers or flip flops! (To get started, you’ll need internet access and a home phone.)”


  • American Express – Offers a variety of “virtual career opportunities” that could let you work from home. The Travel Counselor/Customer Service telephone jobs will probably be the most interesting if you don’t have the specific skills required for other Amex remote jobs. (After clicking through, search “virtual” in the job title field to see current work-at-home jobs.)
  • Amazon.com – Amazon’s version of work from home is called “Virtual Locations.” The easiest jobs to get are customer service rep jobs, but there are other opportunities for those with more education/experience in certain areas.
  • LiveOps – Provide customer service from home for various companies supplied by LiveOps. They also offer stay-at-home sales opportunities. Could be full-time or part-time. Past LiveOps agents have reported making as much as $15 per hour, but that is not guaranteed. No experience necessary for most jobs. Note that a background check costing about $60 is necessary and will be your responsibility.
  • Conduent – Work at home telephone jobs providing customer technical support that pay over $12 per hour. Training required.
  • Qkids – Teach English to Chinese students between 5 – 12 years of age their interactive online teaching platform. Earn $16-$20 per hour from home, flexible schedule. Requires a college degree or currently pursuing one, but does not require a teaching background (though they’d like it).
  • Aspire Lifestyles – Last we looked, this company offered well-paying at-home positions as personal concierges who serve clients by phone. On the downside, jobs were only in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia and Texas (though you get to work at home if you live in one of those states).
  • U-Haul – Employs at-home customer service representatives helping U-Haul customers by phone. These work-at-home opportunities come and go, so keep trying. (After clicking through, search “home” in the job listings to narrow the jobs down to home work opportunities. Last we looked there were a handful of opportunities.)
  • Frosch – Travel consultancy has multiple at-home jobs for travel consultants and related positions. However, most postings ask for candidates that have experience in the travel industry.
  • Apple – Apple often (but not always) has positions for AppleCare At Home Advisors, which means providing customer service help to Apple customers over the phone. Positions are listed as full-time; we are not sure if part-time jobs are available. When you click through, you may see these jobs listed as specific to individual cities, but within the posts themselves, Apple says, “This is a work from home position and you can live in any city across the US-you do not need to live in the city this is posted in to be considered.”
  • Pearson – Education company offers work-at-home job opportunities for tutors in writing as well as in specific subject matter areas.
  • Working Solutions – Offers mainly remote customer service positions “for skilled, educated and motivated professionals to help customers with sales, service and technical support transactions. Agents interact with customers over the phone or online through chat sessions and email.”

  • Shmoop – Another education company looking for remote at-home writers and curriculum editors for teaching & test prep materials.
  • Privia Health – Choose “remote” as the job location on this company’s search page to see work-at-home opportunities. We saw part-time customer service jobs as well as full-time tech jobs listed.
  • Shutterstock – Stock photo and video company has work at home jobs for reviewers of images, illustrations, or video/film footage, to determine the suitability of images or video and/or matching keywords to the material to help clients find images/video via the site search engine.
  • Hotel Tonight – Work-at-home customer service phone jobs available, but only for people in Florida, Oregon, and Texas the last we checked.
  • Vivint – Smart home security and related services company hires at-home tech support workers. However, in most cases you’ll still need to live within 100 miles of certain U.S. cities. Check the “Locations” section on their jobs page to drill down to the Work From Home positions.
  • Kaplan Test Prep – Offers over a dozen remote jobs in a variety of capacities, all supporting the creation or promotion of this company’s standardized test prep services. (Choose “Remote” under State/Province when searching at their site in order to find at-home opportunities.)
  • Alorica – Offers phone-based customer service jobs you can work from home. Pay is under $10 per hour for all the work-at-home jobs we saw.
  • Wonder – Work at home as a researcher, helping to come up with answers to difficult questions posed by Wonder’s clients. This company has gotten mixed reviews from past researchers that have posted about their experience online, so be aware that Wonder is seeking a high level of research and writing skill here.
  • Hilton – Offers full-time and part-time positions for at-home Reservation Sales or Customer Care representatives. Pay is $9 per hour, but there are possibilities for sales incentives that take some at-home workers up to $11-$14 per hour. For full-time workers, you can get medical insurance, 401(k), and other benefits including paid time off. As you might imagine, these positions are in demand, so you’ll want to apply even if there are not current openings.

  • InfoCision – Make calls from home for non-profit organizations to raise money, recruit volunteers, etc. Only in a handful of states, however.
  • ViaSource Solutions – Another work-at-home customer service phone opportunity. You provide customer service in a variety of ways on behalf of this company’s clients. Based on their Web site, they have very specific requirements to do the job right and expect professionalism — hopefully that translates to more work coming your way.
  • NexRep – Another agency that offers work-at-home customer service jobs to its “agents” who may serve a variety of different customers by phone.
  • Westat – This research company contracts with government agencies to collect and analyze data related to public policy. What that means to you is that Westat needs people to be interviewers both in the field and at home to survey the lives and opinions of people in your area. There are also other work-from-home positions. All jobs are home-based, though many do require you to travel to the homes of people who’ve agreed to be interviewed.
