Which is why I’m always on the lookout for work-from-home jobs for you.
Recently, I found an opportunity with Sitel, a global telemarketing and outsourcing business. It’s looking for Work@Home agents all across the country.
Here’s what you need to know.
How to Get Work-From-Home Sitel Jobs
Like many work-from-home opportunities, this is a customer service position.
Using your phone skills, you’ll support “global Fortune 500 companies in the insurance, retail (clothing, toy) travel & leisure, sport and telecommuting industries.”
You must have prior customer service and sales experience, plus the ability to excel in a self-motivated and fast-paced environment.
Your home office must have wired internet and be distraction-free. “We have a zero tolerance policy for noise,” warns the job listing.
Stick with the company, and you could move up; the listing notes 70% of leadership roles are filled from internal promotions.
Though that all sounds great, I do want to warn you: While looking at the company’s reviews on Indeed, many were positive, but some were very negative.
Common complaints included poor management and pay, which appears to start $9 per hour. (I’ve reached out to Sitel for confirmation and will update here if I hear back.)
“The pay is not worth the work you do or the abuse you take from angry customers,” said one former employee.
“You are not a person, you are a number. Your family/personal life does not matter,” lamented another.
On the other hand, other reviewers appreciated the job’s flexibility.
“This is a great place to work if you are a stay-at-home mom, college student or are just looking for work at home opportunities,” said one, while another called it a “flexible rewarding job.”
My advice? Read through the reviews and decide for yourself.
And if you’re familiar with this company, please let us know what you think by leaving a comment!
