I know “working from home” sounds like a scam, but there are legitimate companies out there. Here is one example that involves doing call center work from your home: Marie V. shared her story about working for Alpine Access in my just-published book, AARP’s The Single Woman’s Guide to Retirement (John Wiley & Sons).
A few specifics: Alpine Access (www.alpineaccess.com) requires a $45 background check if you are offered a position.
You are an employee of Alpine Access, and can become eligible for insurance and retirement benefits. Average pay is around $9 an hour. You do need to have a PC with certain capabilities, a land line, and purchase two headsets. You are paid for training.
This area of “homeshoring” has certainly received its share of bad press, but there are some good companies out there. Great to know if you want to earn some extra income from the comfort of your home.
