Customer Service & Call Center Agent: Many companies have remote customer service and sales employees, whether they are in-house or outsourced. In-house customer service representatives are employees who are employed directly by the company. When a company outsources their customer service department, this means they hire separate call centers to provide the customer service for them.

So, there are plenty of ways to be hired as a work-from-home customer service representative. As a remote customer service representative, you can earn between $16 and $22 per hour, depending on your level of experience and where the company is based. Also, the only qualification necessary is oftentimes to have a high school diploma. 

As a customer service representative at a call center or for a specific company, you will handle customer inquiries and questions, and help resolve issues. As you work from home, you may: 

  • Talk to customers on the phone, 
  • Help customers via chat software, or 
  • Respond to customer social media messages.

All you usually just need is a high school diploma, and you can start working your way towards a salary that often sits between $42,000 and $55,000 a year.  

While working an inbound sales job, you will respond to leads, which is when a potential customer reaches out to your company or the company you are assigned to, to inquire about a service or product. 

So, in this position, it’s your job to make sure the customer learns everything they want to know, and with your help they will hopefully make a purchase.
