Q: What types of job opportunities can I expect to find in your database?
A: I do my best to include a wide variety, so you will find opportunities for nearly every level of experience, skill, physical ability, age, and level of education.
Some jobs are better suited to working at home than others, such as medical transcription, legal transcription, clerical, typing, data processing and data entry, crafting, billing, accounting and bookkeeping, programming, editing, proofreading, freelance writing, freelance photography, sales and marketing, advertising, Internet research, web design and developers, and more.
Job listings also include full-time and part-time positions, and most of them are flexible hours, because the work will be performed from your home office. These work-at-home jobs are wonderful because they allow you to work hours that are best for you and your family.
Job status ranges from I/C (independent contractor) and freelancer, to employee, and varies from employer to employer. Note that the job database is subject to updates and I cannot guarantee any job type will be listed at any particular time! Jobs are listed, filled, and closed constantly, but the job you don't see today may be listed tomorrow, so you'll want to check listings often. Just like a newspaper's employment ad section, listings come and go!
Q: Can I live anywhere to work these jobs, or do I have to live near the company? How will I be interviewed?
A: Every employer has different requirements regarding residency. While some positions may be more suitable to working in a different state or country, others may not, and it is up to the discretion of the employer as to their specific location requirements. I have listings from employers that require local applicants only apply, as well as opportunities that are open to International applicants.
Because you will work from your home, and will most likely be located hundreds or thousands of miles away from your employer, usually the interviewing process is initiated via telephone or email, and often will involve online testing, verifying employment references and job training more thoroughly than interviews you might attend in person.
Q: How much will I get paid? How will I receive my payments? Will I have to work Full-Time or Part-Time?
A: Just as with any job you obtain using traditional methods, how much you are paid will depend upon the type and amount of work you do, and the company you work for. Some of the jobs will require you to "log in" to the company's database, or work specific hours during the day or week, and others can be completely flexible, allowing you to set your own hours. You should discuss your pay rate and work hours with the prospective employer prior to starting your job.
Q: How do I apply for a job? Do I call these companies?
A: Each listing is self-explanatory, and contains all the information you need to apply for that position, just like reading job listings in your local newspaper. Each company decides how they prefer to receive contact from job candidates, so all you have to do is follow the employer's directions pertaining to submitting your resume or application for each listing. Some employers request resumes sent via fax or email. Other employers provide a telephone number for job inquiries.
Q: Will I be working for At-Home Works, or the companies listed on At-Home Works' website?
A: You will work directly for the employer you apply to. I am not an employer, but a publisher of information to help you in your home-based job search, and I have no involvement in your relationship with employers. Using my website is very much like using your local newspaper to get a traditional job in your area, except all of my listings are work-at-home, are updated constantly, and you don't have to pay for it every day just to get the most current information...(plus, it won't pile up in the corner like newspapers will!)
Q: How long will I have access to the database once I purchase it?
A: You have unlimited access for the length of your subscription. That means you can access job information at any time of the day or night when it is convenient for you. Updates are made as soon as new information is received, so you'll want to check in often to find the newest openings and apply for them to increase your chances of landing the job you want!
In addition, if you sign up for a 6 Month Subscription and you don't find and land the job you want, all you need to do is email me before your time has expired, and I'll extend your account for an additional 6 Months, absolutely free, no questions asked!
Q: What does access to your database mean, and what kind of information is given about each job posting? When is your website updated?
A: After your order has been received and processed, you will receive access instructions via email that will contain your username and password. With the username and password emailed to you, you will be allowed to access the member's area of my website, which means you will be able to access my job listings at any time of day or night, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, no matter what time zone you live in...when it's convenient for you!
I provide you with the unique opportunity to access home-based opportunities, and to view employment listings from companies and employers, and each opportunity is 100% home-based! The jobs database is fluid and can change at any time with new information provided by my research, members, or employers, and is always subject to change. The database contains hundreds of listings, and represents thousands of hours of research. While updates to my website aren't always obvious, I update my website within hours of receiving new information, so you can be certain that anytime you are accessing my website, you are accessing the most up-to-date and current information I have! I don't list opportunities that I know will expire before my members have the chance to apply for them. Jobs remain posted on my website until I have verified that the position has been filled or changed, or the employer closes, removes or updates their listing. My website is updated constantly because it is designed to meet the needs of everybody, respecting different education levels, income needs, personalities, skills, and work experience.
Each listing provides a description of the job, any qualifications or requirements needed to apply for the job, and contact information provided by the employer. Pay rates, hours the employee is expected to work per week, and specific instructions for applying for the job may also be included in the listing.
Some employers specify that they prefer to receive mailed resumes, and will provide their mailing address. Some employers would rather you fax your resume and provide their fax number, and some accept only emailed resumes and provide their email address, and others require that you fill out an online application via their website, so pay close attention to the instructions provided by the employer or company as to how they prefer to accept applications or contact from job candidates. As more companies are refraining from posting their name and phone numbers online, because they have been deluged with phone calls, faxes, and emails inquiring about the position, or junk mail, I've implemented the use of resume webforms. These have helped to dramatically increase the amount of time they can spend looking at your resumes and applications, which is exactly what we want!
Q: What if I subscribe, but don't see a job I want? What if I don't get hired? Will you give a refund?
A: Because you only pay once for a subscription, you don't have to worry about not seeing a job you want right away. Listings are constantly updated, so you can check back in as often as you want, and apply for as many jobs as you want, for the term of your subscription.
I wish I could guarantee everyone a job of some kind, but that is obviously not within my control (again, just as a newspaper is not responsible to see that each job seeker who purchases their newspaper lands a job!). Each member possesses a unique set of skills, traits, education, training, and experience, along with differing personalities and job-seeking techniques! It stands to reason that if you don't possess the required amounts of the above for any certain position, you may not land the job you want.
But with your skills, experience, training, motivation, and a little patience, my job list is a powerful addition to your arsenal of job-seeking tools - specifically telecommute jobs and projects!
This is a culmination of many years of long hours on my part (just ask my family!). Very late nights, and very early mornings to get my work done so I can help you find a work-from-home job, and therefore I will no longer process refund requests due to not landing a job - I'm not selling jobs - I'm working extremely hard to provide you with a valuable service of legitimate job listings and contract positions that are open to qualified job seekers! The rest is up to you! (Bear with the newspaper analogies, but just to clarify my point, could you return a newspaper for a refund because you didn't land a job?!)
Folks, be realistic in your job search; there are plenty of positions to apply for, but you must have the requirements specified by the employer in order to have a chance at landing the job. Get a good resume that profiles your background and job skills positively, and be persistent! There are a few folks who apply for two or three jobs, and give up because they didn't get hired. This won't cut it; you absolutely *must* keep on submitting job inquiries and resumes, don't give up, be patient, and have a little "stick-to-it-iveness"! You can do this!
Q: When will I receive access to the database after I make payment?
A: After your order has been received and confirmed, your Username and Password will be sent to you via email shortly. If you've paid with an e-Check, your account will be activated as soon as payment is authorized. e-Checks normally take 3-5 business days to clear, depending upon your bank. It is extremely important that you provide your correct, working email address when you sign up, as this is the email address your login information will be sent to.
Q: Do I have to pay more money to any of the companies listed in your database?
A: Absolutely not! Of course, there are some business opportunities and jobs that may require initial investments because it costs them to ship your start up materials to you, and they have no guarantee that you will return the finished work. Your employer may be located hundreds of miles away from you, and they may hire you and entrust you with expensive business assets such as access to a computer or electronics to help your computer perform the work necessary, Internet access, toll-free long distance phone numbers....without ever meeting you face to face. In some positions, you may have to be certified or bonded before you can work for them. But since you are may be entrusted with their property, some employers may require you to share in the financial responsibility for their assets. In some positions, this is the only way they have to ensure your protection of their property and it's one of the things that comes with being able to work from home.
Remember to be smart, though. It is up to you to be responsible and use the proper resources to make sure an employer is on the up-and-up. I also encourage you to do your part, and report unscrupulous practices from any company, and I will delete them immediately after researching to verify that the complaint is valid. I strongly recommend that you always exercise caution and common sense when dealing with anyone online, and encourage you to check out companies independently to your own satisfaction before dealing with them.
Q: How do I know At-HomeWorks.com is legitimate? Are you a member of the Better Business Bureau?
A: Excellent question! I've been doing what I do for years, I love it, and if I hadn't been able to help anyone, I'm sure my customers would have put me out of business long ago!
Here are a few important questions to ask any business you are considering dealing with:
Does the business give contact information? Many scammers will not provide you with any contact information outside of an email address. My mailing address and phone number are available to everyone. I'm here to stay!
Does the business accept credit cards? Companies out to get your money and disappear often will not accept credit card payments. They encourage you to send cash or money orders only. I accept credit cards via PayPal's Secure Server only, and I never have access to your credit card or financial information myself. Furthermore, to protect you, I am a PayPal Verified Business Member, so you can pay with confidence!
Check with the Better Business Bureau Online! The BBB can give you information about ANY business, whether they're paying members or not. A business does NOT have to be a BBB member in order for you to get information about any unresolved customer complaints they might have.
If the company has NUMEROUS UNANSWERED or UNRESOLVED customer complaints, run the other way! This would indicate a pattern of poor customer service or business practices, rather than just the rare person now and then who refuses to be pleased, no matter what the company does to make them happy.
Q: What methods of payment do you accept? How do I get customer service?
A: I accept Credit & Debit Card and e-Check orders via PayPal's Secure Server. For your protection, I am a PayPal Verified Business Member.
All customer service is transmitted via email.
