Work From Home

Make Up to $19.20/Hr as a Customer Service Contractor for LiveOps

Does your work-from-home enterprise need a little income boost?

LiveOps is hiring seasonal, independent contractors to provide customer service for the financial software company Intuit. This is a seasonal position that begins in January and ends April 15, but successful agents will have the opportunity to continue regular work after.

This positions is best suited for applicants with a telecommute office already set up at home — Liveops has strict home-office requirements. Since January through April is considered the “peak season” for Intuit, agents must work a minimum of 15 to 20 hours per week. Calls are open 8 to 12 a.m. EST, seven days a week, so agents can work when they want as long as they meet the weekly hour requirements.

There are two days with extra requirements: Jan. 29 demands at least five hours and April 15 (Tax Day) requires at least seven hours.

Pay is based on talk-time, at 32 cents per minute, meaning there’s an opportunity to make up to $19.20 hourly.

Contractors must attend a three-week certification course online. The certification is a combination of self-paced coursework and virtual classes. The program begins on Jan. 14, and it runs five days a week. Attendance is required.
