Remote customer services jobs are a good fit if you’re looking for the flexibility of working from home and the stability of a full-time or part-time job with an established company. You can often work non-traditional hours if it fits your schedule and work in sweatpants, if that’s your style.

Here are three work-from-home customer service jobs to apply to today:

1. Customer Relations Associate at Pier 1 Imports (Fort Worth, Texas)

Pier 1 offers “competitive pay and benefits,” plus a 25% employee discount as soon as you start.

Paid training starts March 6, and you’d need to work from the corporate office in Fort Worth for the first 90 days, plus at least two days a month going forward. Otherwise, you can work from home.
