TeleTech is a work at home opportunity found online at HirePoint.com, which gives people the chance to truly find a part time, telecommuting job prospect that they can do successfully from the comfort of their home.
Most jobs you find online are not real jobs being offered by employers. Rather they are at home business opportunities that require a lot of time and effort – and many times, a lot of money – to get up and running before you can rely on a steady income.
TeleTech, on the other hand, genuinely offers a work from home opportunity, which gives you the chance to keep a specific schedule with a steady pay rate and a bi-weekly direct deposit paycheck.
How Does TeleTech Work?
TeleTech is a business process outsourcing company, not unlike competitors Alpine Access or Convergys, which partners with major companies from all over the world and helps them find and train a team of at home employees to handle important business functions that don’t necessarily need to be conducted from a brick and mortar office.
These functions include customer service phone calls, as well as “back office processing” such as financial transactions or social media management responsibilities.
TeleTech job opportunities are not available nationwide, unfortunately. They currently do not offer positions in eight of the fifty states, and the only Canadian location they service is Nova Scotia.
If you are interested in working with TeleTech, you must be able to meet certain requirements. First, you must have a dedicated home office that you can ensure will be quiet and interruption free for at least 4-6 hour shifts each day you work.
You must be able to work a minimum of 20 hours a week, as well as have a personal computer, high speed internet service that is a cable, DSL, or fiber connection, and a landline which will only be used for work calls during work hours.
If you do not have a landline currently, TeleTech says that you may wait until after you have been offered a position to order one.
Finally, you must be able to successfully pass a series of skills based exams, including one where you show an ability to appropriately use their software system. After you are hired, you will have to complete training before you can begin earning money, but unlike other telecommuting companies, you will never be required to pay for training.
Compensation for working with TeleTech depends on the final position you’ll be offered, what company you will be assigned to, and how many hours you work each week, but you will be given an hourly rate and paid bi-weekly.
