    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.

    Me too.

    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.

    two phone calls, ie a mini interview and a interview

    I only got one quick 10min call, So has everybody got
    through upto now then?

    I bet we have got the more recruits from here than monster did

    I am also interested in why there aren't any day time shifts.

    She told me there is plenty or room for advancement aswell even though we work at home, which is really good.
  • sammyy
    I thought maybe because its a new service that daytime calls might go to call centres and only out of hours calls going to home workers?Maybe they will offer daytime shifts after they have been up and running awhile.I googled and it said they where looking to recruit 1000 people for @home so plenty of places for all us MSE'Rs hopefully.

    I am really stressing out about the whole referee thing I dont think I even know 4 people, 2 yrs of isolation with an immune suppressed child does not do much for your social life!

    I had to laugh earlier, my phone rang with an 'out of area' number... I gulped about 10 times before answering the phone in my best 'hyacinth bucket (bouquet)' voice.... it was my mum Damn, I thought that would at least be one more hurdle jumped!

    Its good to see that they have 1000 jobs available

    ~* Homework Jobs *~

    *~Hi, does anyone know any other places that offer homework jobs for typing or data entry, that don't require money sent first, before they'll send any details? :rolleyes:
  • Blondie32
    I emailed the lady who gave me my interview and she has now sent me the email to add my references. She said that she thought she had sent it.

    Do you have to add an email address for all of your references as I have one who does not have email as she is not very computer literate?

    don't worry about the references too much, how about your doctor
    or a similar professional?, any family members? for example
    two of mine are my sister and my brother in law, both with
    different surnames, there my personal ones, then two employers
    my last one of 5 years but they have shutdown so might struggle
    with getting one there, and then one at the job before but that
    was nearly 6 years ago so they might not even have me on file.

    Oliver27,

    Have you had your identification verified by a solicitor yet? Have you also received your welcome pack through the post?

    Do I have to send the contract I received by email back by post or can I print, scan and send it through email?

    Sorry for all the questions but you seem very knowledgable.

    so they might just check the others, but if you think shes going to
    be one of the better references, maybe you could setup up a hotmail
    address for her and just pass the messages on, make sure she knows
    about it and she can pretend she will do the email thing.

    I was wondering about the contract, but as they emailed it I reckon u can just sign scan and email.

    What's all this about the solicitor????

    Wow.

    I think it would be easier to gain employment in the non-existential Willy Wonka factory.

    This is what I was thinking. They also say you need business insurance on the property. What does that mean then? Paying business Council Tax Rates??!

    I wonder how much a Solicitor is going to cost! Incidentally, can someone point me to where it states this in the contract?
