Working from home isn’t an ideal situation for everyone. However, if you prefer to earn a living without leaving the house, Hertz is currently hiring home-based customer service reps with perks that rival many jobs that require a long commute.
There seems to be a trend with major companies hiring employees who work from the comfort of their own homes. While some positions are part-time, there are several full-time customer service positions available for home-based employees that could serve as your main source of income.
Hertz is not alone in the home-based job market. According to recent reports by the Inquisitr, Amazon is hiring full-time, home-based customer service reps for the holiday season.
In addition, U-Haul is currently hiring full-time online customer service reps. If you are a tech fanatic, Apple is hiring home-based customer service advisors with perks that include product discounts and reimbursement for internet service fees.
While discounts on computers and a rebate on your internet bill are fantastic perks, the bonus payments and medical insurance Hertz offers their home-based employees makes the car rental company’s work-from-home positions worth checking out.
