Update: As of 10/3/16, Xerox is no longer hiring work-from-home representatives in the U.S., but has openings for call centers reps in several states. Like The Penny Hoarder Jobs on Facebook to stay up-to-date on opportunities like this.
Despite the endurance of the proprietary eponym, Xerox is much more than copy machines these days.
The company offers customers help with data processing, HR benefits management, finance support, transportation solutions and customer relationship management.
And it’s looking for help!
You’d support customers via phone or email — troubleshooting problems with existing services and recommending products to better serve their needs.
Requirements for Xerox’s Work-From-Home Jobs
To become a customer care associate, you don’t need a degree to apply — just a high school diploma or GED. You don’t even need customer service experience; it’s truly an entry-level position.
To become a tech support agent, the job listing doesn’t mention a degree, though you should have about six months of in-person or over-the-phone customer service experience.
For both positions, you’ll also need basic typing skills and be able to crank out 25 or more words per minute — which is doable as long as you’re not hunting and pecking.
Depending on your credentials, Xerox has openings for a range of other virtual jobs, too, including management, information security and recruiting.
Xerox Employee Benefits
You’ll have the opportunity to work from home or from one of several Xerox call centers around the U.S. These are full-time positions, and some of the job listings note these great benefits:
- Medical, dental and vision coverage
- 401(k) plans
- Educational assistance
- Paid time off
- Company discounts at local restaurants and gyms, plus discounts on cell phone service, auto and travel, international theme parks and more
Some job listings mention specific states, but we checked with a Xerox representative who clarified anyone within the U.S. can apply to any work-from-home position.
