BPO or outsourcing company

Company Decription:

Based in Englewood, CO, TeleTech is a global business process outsourcing (BPO) company that hires 50,000 people in 17 countries. While much of its worldwide workforce is office-based, its Teletech@Home division hires virtual (or work at home) call center agents in the U.S. and U.K to services its clients.

Types of Work-at-Home Positions:

TeleTech@Home's call center agents are employees, not independent contractors. (See more employment call center jobs.) These call center agents perform sales, customer service, and technical support. Agents bilingual in Spanish, German, French, Catalan, Dutch and many other languages are hired. Pay is said to be $9-10 per hour.* An agent must commit to work at least 20 hours a week, but hours are typically 20-30 per week. Weekend and holiday work is required. Paid online training is provided.

Work at home agents are required to provide their own computer, Internet and landline telephone service. There may be other required equipment purchases.

Applying to TeleTech@Home:

In order to apply go to the TeleTech@Home career page. Run a system check to see if your computer meets requirements. Fill out an online application and take a skills assessment. Within two days you should receive an email stating whether, based on your application and assessment, TeleTech would like you to interview for a position. If you are successful at the interview, another computer test is performed and an offer will be made. Drug testing and criminal background screening is required but TeleTech@Home pays for the cost of it.
