    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.

    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

    i think the real test is when you get your workbooth cd
    this will prove that everything will work when it comes to
    starting for them

    Oliver27 has posted a list of the steps above which is very helpful!

    Regarding the test's, a few tips

    Sorry it's too late for Peacock3022, hope you
    still pass .

    Customer Service:
    if you don't hear the customer speaking their details
    you can press the play symbol on the top right to hear
    it again, You will need to keep minimizing the question box
    to get to the information to answer questions, lastly don't
    forget this is a American test so the cheesy very polite answer
    is probably the correct one, And watch that clock.

    Computer Test:
    you will be asked to perform a few basic operations
    like move,copy,rename,delete a file, and how to search
    for a file in windows (Start menu, Search, )
    But be careful you cant use the right mouse button
    so you will need to click "File" in the top left hand of
    the window and select rename delete etc

    Thanks Oliver27.Do you get a pass or fail straightaway?
  • Blondie32
    Does anyone know how I pass on my references to them?

    When I got my telephone interview, the woman said that I would receive an email to enter my reference details but I have not received anything.

    Does anyone have an email address for the company?
  • sammyy
    Hi Blondie32,when I spoke to them today they gave me home@teletech.com as their emailaddress if I had any problems.I was wondering the same,when I spoke to them today she asked about references and said I could give them to the lady who would call tomorrow.I was wondering what format they wanted i.e email,postal or telephone No.s.
  • TheWaltons
    I received an email from a lady who asked for 4 referees.

    She wanted to know whether they were personal/profesional. Their phone numbers and adresses, their occupation and their email addresses.

    She sent it to me via her personal email and her name was Kylee.

    I got a email about 5 mins after having the telephone interview
    with my contact, it had the reference template with it you just fill
    in the blanks and email it back

    edit: Waltons beat me to that one

    Do you reckon those who don't meet the criteria, don't receive the email?

    I think they have been very professional and wouldn't just leave people hanging like this without an explanation.
