VIPdesk Connect, a customer service outsourcing company for the retail, travel, consumer products and financial services industries, is hiring part-time sales brand ambassadors for its HomeAdvisor sales team. So home-improvement knowledge is a plus.

The position is available in these 14 states: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

The inbound customer service/sales rep gig is a hybrid role with pay partially based on commission. So your smooth talking will be rewarded. Some top earners make over $18 an hour, according to the listing. But note, that’s not the base pay.

According to Glassdoor, customer service reps make $10 an hour before commission.

Beside performance-based bonuses, other perks include flex scheduling throughout the week. Sales reps can strike a good work/life balance by choosing a minimum 18-hour work week between the following EST times:

  • Monday to Friday, 2 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Saturday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Get to crafting that perfect schedule. The next round of paid, daily training sessions begins Aug. 10, from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST.

Sales ain’t for everyone. We know. Hop on over to our brand new Work-From-Home Jobs Portal to find the perfect fit.
