Pay and Benefits:
Applying to West at Home:
To apply to West at Home fill out its online application on its website. The application is quite extensive. Applicant's must have a minimum of a high school diploma or a GED but some college is considered favorably.
After the application is accepted, applicants will be invited (or not) to do a series of online skills and behavioral assessments. After that an offer may be issued.
After a preliminary offer is made applicants must pay $29.95 for their own criminal background check. This is not typical. Most companies--not applicants--absorb this cost; however, since an offer of employment is made conditionally based on the outcome this check, it is not necessarily unethical. There may also be a drug test before starting. Training is paid at an hourly rate.
West @ Home does not hire in all states. And even in the states where it does hire, it does not hire in all counties. Fortunately, early in the application process it asks for your state and lets you know whether you are eligible. As of February 2012, West was accepting applications from these states:
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
