5 Work-From-Home Jobs to Apply to Right Now If You Live In…
These work-from-home jobs with big-name companies were too good not to share. Here are all the details.
1. Colorado: Ibotta is Hiring Customer Support Reps
It’s no secret: We’re big fans of the Ibotta app here at The Penny Hoarder. And right now, it’s hiring part-time, remote workers in Colorado.
As a customer support rep, you’ll work from home in seven-hour shifts (morning, afternoon and night shifts available), plus one required weekend shift per week.
You’ll respond to customer emails, as well as wade through fraud reports and moderate receipts. Some previous customer service experience is preferred — as is a four-year college degree.
Pay is $12 per hour. The position is work-from-Colorado, but more specifically, you need to be able to attend occasional trainings and meetings in Denver.
All the information you need is right here in the job posting.
2. Louisville, Kentucky: GE is Hiring Customer Service Reps
Yeah, that GE — the appliance mogul.
As a member of GE’s customer service team, you’ll help the company’s area sales managers and customers by fielding incoming calls, processing orders and completing delivery processes.
You’re expected to work 19 hours a week after attending a six-week training (Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.). You should have at least one year of customer service experience, as well as a high-speed internet connection and landline phone.
Pay is $14.42 per hour — and you’ve got to be local to Louisville for required trainings and meetings.

3. Santa Clarita, California, and Seattle, Washington: Princess Cruises is Hiring Travel Agents
I wrote about work-from-home opportunities with Princess Cruises last fall (ugh, so many nautical puns in that thing). Now, the cruise line needs work-from-home, after-hours travel agents to hop aboard.
It’ll be your job to process urgent, after-hours air travel for the company’s officers, crew, entertainers, vendors, contractors and shoreside employees. You’ll handle hotel and ground transportation, too — searching for the best prices, obviously.
You need a high school diploma and three years of related experience. You’ll be expected to work a flexible schedule, including night and weekends.
However, the benefits seem awesome.
Each employee gets one weekday off every two weeks, eight paid holidays, paid vacation, bonus vacation time and paid sick time, as well as “cruise and travel privileges” for your family.
Plus: health benefits, tuition reimbursements, a 401(k) and stock plans.

4. El Paso, Texas: Dish Network is Hiring Customer Service Reps
Ever have trouble with satellite service providers? So do tons of other Americans.
That’s probably why Dish Network has 10 support centers across the U.S. — including one in El Paso, Texas.
Right now, Dish needs representatives to help handle payments and billing, and assist customers with product features and issues.
You need a high school diploma or GED and six months of customer service experience. Dish will give you any necessary equipment on site.
You’re expected to work flexible hours, including weekends, holidays and evenings. There will also be a four-week, on-site training. After that, you’ll be expected to work on site at least one day a quarter.
I reached out to Dish about pay twice with no such luck on the specifics. Your best bet is to just apply and inquire, so check out the job listing online.
5. Ohio and West Virginia: InfoCision is Hiring Customer Service Associates
Haven’t heard of InfoCision?
This company specializes in telemarketing services for nonprofit fundraising (think: the American Heart Association), sales and business-to-business applications.
Its work-from-home customer service associate position requires you to make calls for volunteer organizations and recruit volunteers.
You must be able to work at least 28 hours a week — including eight weekend hours. You also need to meet all technology requirements.
Benefits include weekly pay at $9.35 per hour (plus commission), flexible schedules and comprehensive training.
Plus: A shout out to Work at Home Mom Revolution for bringing us this information for InfoCision!
