Here’s a work at home job a friend of mine shared with me not long ago. She does alot of work at home job searching and found that Marriott Hotels has an AT HOME AGENT program for Reservation Sales and Customer Care. It appears to be only certain states – Texas, South Carolina, Arizona, Nebraska and Utah and certain cities – Miami, FL, San Antonio, TX, Sarnia, ON Saskatoon, SK, and Solon, OH.
Here is just some of the information they provide on their website: Marriott Global Reservation Sales & Customer Care
“This position is responsible for consistently providing world class customer service to our guests on inbound calls to book room reservations and to provide customer service information. We are seeking qualified candidates in communities with excellent voice quality and communication skills that will enhance our guests’ experience.
Please note this is a sedentary position which requires an At Home Agent to provide an area within one’s residence in order to complete job duties without interference from outside disturbances or distractions, so as complete attention is focused upon our guests’ service needs.
This position requires that you be available for work according to a flexible, rotating schedule, which means an At Home Agent may not always work the same days each week. At Home Agents are required to be available for scheduling any day of the week between the hours of 06:00 (6 a.m.) to 02:00 (2 a.m.). This includes your availability to work on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.”
“We do offer an excellent standard benefits package. Whether you are full time or part time, you benefit from greatly discounted Marriott hotels rates. We also offer medical, dental, life, and disability insurance policies based on work status that provide protection at affordable rates. ”
Pay begins at $7 an hour but it looks to me like it is a job with benefits not an independent contractor position.
