The Ultimate Work From Home Customer Service Job List

You’re here because you want to work from home.  I wanted to work from home for years before I finally ventured out and did what you’re doing now because NOBODY would tell me where these elusive jobs could be found.   Well you’re in luck because I’m not one of those people.  I’m here give you as much information as I possible can so keep coming back to this page for more updates.  As I find them, I will add them.

I get so tired of hearing that people are working from home but then when I ask them how they act as if it’s some classified secret.  Like, just tell me where you work and how to apply already.  Well, that’s what I’m going to do for you today.  No hidden fees, no workshops, no book to purchase, just honest links to real jobs that you can work from home.  First, let’s make sure you qualify for some of these positions…

Do you have a Desktop or Laptop Computer? 

For many of these jobs today some companies allow you to use laptops as long as you have a speedy processor. But it’s my personal opinion that if you really want to secure one of these jobs, you will need a desktop computer with a certain minimum number of additional specifications. Please don’t try to do one of these interviews from your cell phone or Ipad because you decrease your odds of having a great interview most likely due to software incompatibility. Success is when opportunity meets preparedness so invest in yourself,  If you put your best foot forward, this investment will pay off in less than six months.  While there are some companies that will actually send you equipment, know that these companies are far and few in between.  Here’s a great example from Working Solutions on what you will need to provide these services from home and increase your likelihood of getting hired faster.  System Requirements 



Do you have reliable internet access?

No Hotspots here.  Working from home requires a reliable internet source so WiFi is out of the question if you want to be taken seriously.  You will a need solid Ethernet-connected internet source.  This is not as difficult as it sounds.  The hardest part will probably be figuring out how long of an ethernet cord you will need.


Do you have a home phone? 

Many companies have moved on to phone software which has eliminated the need for land phone lines.  HOWEVER, a proper and good at-home-business based office has a landline with no call waiting. (Call waiting will interfere with incoming work calls)  While it may not be necessary to have that landline just to start the interview process, it’s a good idea to at least get the ball rolling on the install.


Dust Off Your Resume!!!

It’s one thing to fill out this application, but you want to stand out and receive a faster response.  The great thing about working online is that you don’t face many of the discriminations that you would working in a public office.  You don’t have to worry about that here on the web…we are your friends.  No judgment here, besides, most of these companies can’t see you.  They are relying on your accurate computer skills and your great phone voice.    Now, don’t let me mislead you because some companies are asking you to interview on a webcam and some actually require you to work on a webcam.  Don’t ask me why.  Maybe they just want to know that you at least shower before offering world-class customer service.  So be prepared because some companies are now using meeting software like Zoom and Adobemeet to conduct interviews and training. 

Do you have a quiet workspace in your home?

Last, but NOT least.  A quiet workspace.   When I first started doing this in 2012 I literally was working out of my closet.  Yes, I had a computer, my desk, my phone, and my trusted office chair….in my walk in closet.  Good times.

Is it actually quiet?

I have four school-aged children.  While we have our moments, they have learned that when mom is on the phone, there is to be silence.  It’s almost like a game we play and I actually give out rewards.  This may seem impossible sometimes if you have pets, random people stopping by, construction or landscaping going on, etc.  You will find a way around of all this.  We all have.  The most important thing is to get your family to understand that this their bread and butter too.  Everyone will benefit if you all work together.  Don’t be apprehensive.  Trust me!  Your thinking that you can’t do this, is the only thing stopping you.

Now let’s check out these Jobsites!!



I’m starting with LiveOps because they were the first company I ever worked for.  For this company you will need the following hardware:

  • A desktop or laptop computer
  • A landline telephone and noise cancelling headset
  • Ethernet connected internet access
  • Must pay for and pass a background check



This company may take the longest in sending you an invite to work after submitting your application.  I’ve seen invites take up to six weeks before, although I hear that has changed.  LiveOps only offers Independent Contractor positions.  This means, you are responsible for claiming and filing your own taxes on the money you make by filing a 1099 quarterly or at the end of the year.  Training is not paid, but is completed on your time.  So that means, if you push yourself through training, you can be working in a matter of a couple of days.  The company pays you by the minute.  When you start you make 0.25 cents per minute.  It sounds tedious, but it adds up when you consider most of your calls on the general line will be back to back calls.  Yes, you will get tired of pushing free cruises and magazines.  And that’s where the job gets interesting.  After a couple of weeks on the general line, you will be given the opportunity to “Opt In” to other lines.  These other companies have different training, but offer more per minute.  Some up to 0.75 cents per minute.  Some might think this “minute” pay is a deal breaker, but it’s really a blessing in disguise. After all, consider this the trade off for being able to set your own hours.

Oh yeah, and by the way, working for LiveOps in conclusion, know that they are very strict.   I had an external issue with my phone company where the line was ringing outside the house, but not inside the house for two hours.  I thought I was logged on but just not getting calls.  Turns out, the phone was ringing and the company thought I was hanging up on live calls.  I was immediately terminated for LIFE. So, only serious inquiries need apply.

2. Alorica


This was the first large call center I ever worked for back when they were called, “West At Home”.   That was 25 years ago.  They have since been bought out by Alorica and I found them to be a great company to work for.  For this company you will need

  • A desktop computer
  • A landline telephone and noise cancelling headset
  • Ethernet connected internet access
  • Must pay for and pass background check

Alorica only offers Independent Contractor positions to start however, they pay by the hour.  Depending on the client you are assigned, you will make upwards of $9.00 an hour.  Full time and part time schedules are offered and strict schedule adherence is required.  Training is paid per hour also and varies in completion time depending on the client’s complexity.

3.  Teletech Solutions (TTEC) 

Teletech is a great company to work for.  When I first read reviews about the company, I was a bit concerned, however I later found out that their “easy peasy” onboarding process and fantastic benefits make them a company you want to work for and stay with.  For this company you will need

  • A desktop or laptop computer
  • Ethernet connected internet access
  • Pass a background check (paid for by TTEC)
  • Web Cam

TTEC is one of the highest paying outsourcing companies I’ve worked for, and really treats and pays their employees a fair wage.  You are not an Independent Contractor with TTEC you are an employee.  Which means you get a W-2 to file at the end of the year instead of the 1099.  They also offer some pretty cool benefits like Health, Dental, and a 401K.  I don’t know how low their pay scale goes, but I’ve seen the pay range from $11.50/hour to $15.50/hour for call center representatives.

SYKES is a company that offers work-from-home employment with hourly wage and paid training.  Here, you are an employee as well instead of an Independent Contractor.  Here’s what you will need to work with this company:

  • A desktop or laptop computer
  • Ethernet connected internet access
  • Pass a background check (paid for by SYKES)
  • Web Cam

This company has a quick onboarding process, but they have strict requirements for your computer processing unit (CPU).  Please make sure before you apply that you run the systems check on your computer because if it’s not ready when they call, you might find yourself missing out on a great opportunity.

5.  Arise


Many people give Arise the side eye and I’ll come straight out of the gate and tell you why.  It’s because you have to pay for your own training, and depending on the client, the LLC you work under will get a part of your check as commission.  Trust me, it’s just pennies when you calculate it but the end, it’s worth it.  You learn how to start your own business when all is said and done, and then you have the opportunity to teach other people how to do it as well.  Arise is a bit different in that not only are you an independent contractor you also have the opportunity to get an LLC and start your own company with people working for you.  Yes, your very own call center.  Here’s what you will need to get started:

  • A desktop or laptop computer
  • A landline telephone and noise cancelling headset
  • Ethernet connected internet access
  • Must pass a background check and drug test depending on the company (paid for by the client)
