LOVE being a CSP with own IBO
- I love my partnership with Arise. Yes is an investment, yes you have to keep learning and training to keep making more and advancing! Is it worth it?? To me it is, I work when I want, as much or little as I want, my metrics are my both, you have to work hard. You have be doing what is required. Like any business owner, I have ensure my computer and equipment is working properly. This is my own responsibility because I am a business owner. It is also my responsibility to pay my own taxes, my own benefits etc..It requires you to be self-sufficient and motivated! I have my own freedom, no boss, no hassle and I am in my own home.. how great is that!!! =)

- I worked with a VERY WELL known company under Arise. The client reqiures you to pay for class training. You to train over 8 hours a day to keep up. Gives few hours for you to choose to work after all of this. Then terminates you for not complying with their rules for min hrs to work. Try to find a better company. Find out all the particulars and hold them to your standard as they deny theirs to you.2 1/2 months of class for 4 hrs and 6 hrs of studying. Don't do it

Arise is just fine!
- So Arise is a place where some fail and some succeed. I must tell you that Arise is not a cakewalk. Each job is as if you were trained by the big boys and girls in a real building of real estate in the town or in the plaza. You just have to keep in mind that if you do go into it that you are heading towards gainful employment and treat this as your business and bread winner. There are huge issues with NOT studying and not grasping 100% of this training that you will embark upon. If you're setup is proper and you are mindful to get all of the material and do it right, you can make money from home, work when you want and eventually hire someone else and a few others and then take over a nice business. With the concept of jobs running from us, they are using the same technology to bring the jobs back, it's up to the individual to take advantage. Someone in the Philippines would love to take your spot.

CSP and IBO
- They are unprofessional and slow at fix tech issues. They don't care if you are out of work for two weeks. All they care about is themselves. I had a tech issue going on for two week they claim to have escalated for Carnival Cruise line I have not heard anything about it. THey don't care if I am make money or not. You don't get paid to talk to tech support and most of the training course are so expensive. If you need people to work for these clients why am I being charge to train? The whole structure of Arise is terrible they are just trying to take your money.

It's hard work and worth it long haul...
- The courses are intense, 4 hours a day for several weeks with 1-3 hrs homework. You cannot breeze by. If your serious about the career change and have half a brain you'll pass. If you expect something for nothing or an "easy" job forget it. You have to study and dedicate yourself. They don't set you up to fail, they set it up to get the best of the best. If your professional and career minded this is a great opportunity. I have a CSP ,we will call her C, that loves her job, makes $10.50 per hour and gets bonuses. This past week she received over one hundred in bonuses. I make $12 per hour servicing. When I started it was $8 an hour. It takes time to get built up. For instance, C. Had a first check of $42 her next check was $77, so on and so forth. After four checks she was making $300+ working only the minimum hours. Also, find someone who knows about the clients & availability of hours. Many have more avail than you can possibly work.

I worked for Arise
- I thought this would be a great place to work. I payed for the schooling, bought all the equipment, new laptop, special phone to work with citrix, paid for a seperate phone line and went through the unpaid training. I got hired to work for Carnival. I enjoyed it very much, I worked for a few months and thought I was doing good, then WAVE season started, this was going to be the busiest time of the year. Without warning they let me go. There was no explanation, I asked everyone I knew and no one would talk to me except one girl there who told me that they only kept what they needed. Everyone from my class that I have talked to have been let go. I feel we were all cheated and I am especially disgusted with Carnival. I COULD pay more money to Arise and get training for another job but I have lost all faith in them especially how they handled me when Carnival dumped me. I WOULD never recommend Arise to anyone.

WOW you guys are foolish
- I have been with arise for almosty 2 years. It was tough starting out.. but what Bus. is'nt? In my second year I already see income growing. It takes time, it takes understanding growth. To reach a goal is to go through the hard times... I love Arise and have made some really good money with them. Those that are winney... well you must those that want something for nutten and what life handed to ya. Grow up and look at a Bus model and mabe then you can understand what it takes to make it in any Bus. Geez people.

Stay clear from them!
- SAVE yourself the time, money and stress. Trust me when I say stay away from Arise. From experience and others.
- I worked for Arise for almost 2 years. I was good at the job. Summer 2012 I was suspended, no reason except that they said I never completed an upskill. These all have to be done in a timely manner. I never received the upskill. Lost 1 mth of work because Arise didn't know what happened & didn't reinstate me without persistance with my VSC. Statement of Work states you have metrics to meet as well. That gives them their out. All up front costs I put in doesn't cover what I have brought home. Now because one metric wasn't met & because too many working in my department, they weed you out...terminate your S.O.W. without notice with premise you didn't meet the metric..."their out". Would not recommend you work for Arise Virtual Solutions.

Working For ARISE
- OK - final thoughts on ARISE: Those who worked but were not paid should contact the Department of Wage & Labor. I'm not positive that they handle internet employers but they're fierce on employers who fail to pay for hours worked. ARISE rules concerning VOIP and mobile phones are super clear so case closed on that complaint! NO internet company is going to provide free training. What if they did that then you decide to go with another company? ARISE offers GREAT discounts and voucher incentives and they often give them without a posted advertisement, if you just ask!! Lastly, almost ALL the ARISE opportunities (and other internet home businesses) are seasonal. That would mean you'd need at least 2 contacts, simultaneously or back to back, to have enough hours and/or year-round work. Other trusted work-from home websites can be found on consumer advocate Clark Howard's web-site. But read, ask and get a clear understanding, before signing up with any of them!

This article is crap
- I have been with Arise since 2007 and I have had plenty clients all plenty hours available. You have to know what client is right for you and the hours they allow servicing to match with what you have to provide. You are your own business so why would you expect to be paid for training. And as another reviewer stated if you do your taxes right just about everything is a tax write off. Being a stay at home mom of 4 Arise has allowed me to continue to stay home. I have NO complaints. The writer of this article should do more research or try working for the companies that they are trying to down.

- Run away from this company. They make their money from selling the classes

Not For You If You Are A Needy Employee
- Point blank period if you are looking for a job that caters to your every moan and groan then the Arise Network is NOT for you. You have to have a go getter personality and able to manage yourself and your stats without anyone micromanaging you. I've never had a problem with pay the Statements of Work are very upfront about expectations and pay. Granted I service a Cruise line that top performance pay is very lucrative I make full time money on Part time hours. As far as Technical support sometimes systems glitch but that's nothing new even from a standard call center but if your equipment is beyond minimum requirements then your tech issues are seldom. Yes it would have been nice if training was paid but I found myself more hard working in studying and passing certification because my own dollar was on the line. I'm my own IBO I have no CSP's. The opportunity is what it is I needed flexibility and work better alone perfect for me as long as they continue to pay on time!

Boy do you have it wrong
- Wow is all I have to say to your story!!! Congrats for being the most uninformed person ever!!! Yes, there are out of pocket cost but there are ways to get reimbursement. The correct way Arise works is you start out by doing a voice assessment that is 100% free. This tells you if you are fit to do the job(s). Then you submit a background check that runs from $13-$20 depending on what state you live in. Then you have to become a Client Support Professional through the University. The couse is CSP 101 and it can be completed within 2 hours and the standard cost is $99 but goes on sale often for $49.99. After that, you have the option of creating your own business or joining an existing business, which there are several to choose from. This is where you need to do your research. You can find one that offers to help with the client training cost or offers reimbursement. After you join, you look at several clients and choose the one you want to service. Several offer certification bonuses
