    A real work at home job (Tech) 24th Aug 07 at 8:42 PM
    I have found a job on monster.co.uk
    it's tech support for teletech ,
    it's a genuine job that homeworkers
    can do min of 20hrs a week

    http://www.hirepoint.com/athome

    Edit: There is now also another opportunity
    for those not quite so technically minded

    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.html?t=807133

    Can I request those that are successful in gaining
    employment with Teletech, do not disclose information
    on Teletechs clients or disclose any information that would
    be classed as confidential or sensitive.

    This opportunity was originally posted in Aug 2007
    so my apologies if there are no current vacancies.

    Hi guys, I passed the computer spec test and got the email advising me that the workbooth cd is on its way. Did you guys get the phone call before or after the cd arrived, as of yet I have had no phone call.... ?

    Cheers.

    if you have a look at the rear of the modem, you may see
    a usb and a ethernet socket on the back, which is being used?

    They are taking staff for Sky Broadband tech support so it will
    be uk customers, allthough we might not allways be doing work
    for Sky but for now thats the contract.

    You can check when they call you the waltons but i am 99%
    sure there all evening shifts, mine is 7-11 tues-sat

    In-fact just noticed I never actually said it was on behalf of
    Sky Broadband, don't forget one of the perks is half price Sky

    Haha dont be cruel, I am sure everyone who gets it will be fine
    there is enough training by the sound of it

    from the I.T crowd tv show
    [Roy receiving a tech support call, answers after 15 rings with a sigh]]
    Roy: Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?
    Roy: Well, the button on the side, is it glowing?
    Roy: Yeah, you need to turn it on.
    Roy: The button turns it on.
    Roy: You DO know how a button works, don't you?
    Roy: No, not on clothes.

    I thought I was going to fall at the first hurdle there for a minute! I just did the pc test and it failed me first time, said our network wasnt fast enough This is quite true as though we pay for up to 8 meg, we only get a palty 1 The strange thing about it though was that I had the laptop plugged straight into the router via ethernet when it failed. It only passed after I went back to wireless again :confused: I would have thought it would have been faster plugged in! Maybe tech support isnt for me lol.

    Like peacock3022, I got an email saying I am being sent a cd next and will be phoned if my pc passes the next test. Maybe its because the lappie failed the test first time around?

    Good luck everyone applying

    Hi there - just a quick question. I was about to start the computer testing when a pop up told me that it was from an unverified digital signature. Does anyone know if this is a problem. Don't want to download dodgy software! Does anyone actually work for these people - I'm a little concerned that it could be a scam!
    Thanks
