Welcome to Why I WAH

When I was thinking of an appropriate name for my blog, I decided on Why I WAH for the simple reason that I'm not only trying to be successful at working from home, but I want to help others do the same. It is not always easy to work from home no matter what anyone says. You have to have the drive and dedication to getting the job finished. Many times you will not have a boss breathing down your neck to finish an assignment. So, you also have to think about why you want to WAH, as well, and hold that close to give you the perseverance to work at it.

Don't Just Order Grubhub, Work for Grubhub Through NexRep

NexRep is currently hiring call center agents to work from home taking calls for various clients.  This particular opportunity is for GrubHub.  You’ll be speaking with both restaurants and customers that need help with GrubHub.  This particular opportunity requires nights and weekends as this is when more calls are coming in.  If you enjoy talking to people and helping them to solve their problems, this could be an excellent WAH opportunity for you to explore.  Note: GrubHub isn’t the only client they are currently hiring for, and you can explore some of the others if you’d rather have more of a sales call or have the potential for more money.  

  • Requests 20 hours a week minimum
  • Hourly pay
  • Pretty open call hours as it’s 6 in the morning until 3 in the morning Eastern Standard Time every day of the week
  • Low on the scale for sales skills
  • Doesn’t take agents from several states including AR, CA, IL, IN, NY, OR, RI, WA
  • You’re a contractor, not an employee
  • Background check required which you have to pay for at $25.00
  • Pay for each Nexrep client may vary, no pay listed for GrubHub
  • Requires a high amount of skills for customer service, so you’ll probably be interacting with customers and restaurants that are having issues
  • Requires quiet working space
  • Specific home office equipment, including computer and high-speed internet

I believe that this sounds like a worthwhile opportunity to check out.  Although my kids are finally in school, the hours they require still wouldn’t be quiet enough for me to apply, but I think that there are plenty of people that might make good use of this WAH call center opportunity.  Have you worked for NexRep before?  Have you applied?  We want to hear from you!  Comment below on your experience.
