5 Work-From-Home Jobs That Are Open Now
And if you’re looking for a job that does just that, check out these five work-from-home customer service jobs that are open right now!
1. CMS Solutions: Client Support Representative
CMS Solutions is a talent-acquisition company based in Fayetteville, North Carolina. As a client support representative, you’ll communicate with customers via phone or live chat to help them resolve their questions and problems.
Client support representatives earn between $9 and $15 per hour, with performance incentives. No word yet on benefits, but we’ve reached out to the company and will update this post when we find out.
You should have at least a high school diploma, a minimum of six months of experience in a customer service position, strong written and verbal communication skills and a cheerful, helpful demeanor. Technical troubleshooting skills are a plus.
You must be available to work at least 15 hours per week, but you can select your own flexible work hours.
For a brief training period, you must be available during the mornings or evenings for four hours each day to participate in a virtual training program. Your training period will be determined by which clients you work with.
There are some basic technical requirements for this position, but you’ll definitely need a wired internet connection and a landline phone with a headset.
Unfortunately, if you live in California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon or Wisconsin, CMS Solutions is unable to consider you for this position.

2. HotelTonight: Customer Service Phone Agent

You should have at least one year of customer service under your belt, be smartphone and internet savvy and have the ability to calmly assist customers in a natural, unscripted way.
Although this is a work-from-home position, you must live in Oregon to apply. You must be available to work 40 hours per week, but evening and weekend work may be required.
No word yet on what this position pays, but the benefits are pretty sweet: no-cost health, dental and vision insurance plans, a 401(k) plan, 10 paid vacation days and six paid sick days, a $50 a month stipend to offset technology costs, and to top it all off, $500 per quarter in credits to use on the app (that means free hotel stays, y’all).
