Some good news for those of you who want to work from home…
Thanks to one of our readers, we found out U-Haul is hiring part-time, work-from-home customer service representatives all across the country. (Thanks for the tip, Tasha!)
Even better, you don’t need a college degree OR experience to snag one.
Here’s what you need to know.
These U-Haul Jobs Let You Work From Home
U-Haul lists three work-from-home jobs on its site.
These are categorized as “moonlighter jobs” with flexible hours, which U-Haul says are ideal for people with other work or familial responsibilities.
They also include benefits like a supplemental health care plan and 401(k), Jaime Zell, a corporate recruiter for U-Haul, told me.
For each gig, you’ll need to have a headset, high-speed internet and a computer with Windows XP or 7. From-home training is required — and paid.
1. Hitch Central Agent
The “Hitch Central Team” is a specialized group within the company’s customer contact center. The role requires you to answer calls and questions and to provide tech support (about hitches) to U-Haul customers around the country.
It’s worth noting you don’t need any experience with hitches to apply. You do, however, need to be courteous and professional and have strong written and verbal communication skills.
Although this is a work-from-home position, you’ll be expected to complete a three-week training at U-Haul’s corporate headquarters in Phoenix.
2. Center Sales Reservation Agents
As a reservation agent, you’ll assist customers with rental inquiries and reservation requests for trucks, trailers, hitches, towing devices, storage and U-Box units.
Zell says the company is looking to hire approximately 180 new agents.
You must be at least 16 years old and be in school or already have a high school diploma or GED.
There’s a four-week paid training period, though it’s all remote. Hours “vary during slow and busy seasons,” and the position pays $8.25 per hour, plus bonuses.
“The competition for this role is fierce,” U-Haul says. “100% commitment during training is required.”
3. Center Sales Reservation Agents (Quebec)
This position is the same as the one above. Though it’s a work-from-home position, you must live in Quebec and speak French. You must also be available to work one weekend day each week.
We can only assume the competition is, once again, fierce — but it could be well worth it if you end up working in your jammies!
