Types of Work-at-Home Positions:

Home call center agents at Ver-a-Fast are part-time independent contractors. Contractors must be available for at least 16 hours per week in a variable schedule that must include weekends. Pay is based on a base pay and incentives, and since these are not employment positions there are no minimum wage protections, though reports on various work-at-home forums indicate pay is around minimum wage.

Work at home agents are required to provide their own Windows-based computer, printer and Internet (DSL or cable) and telephone service. However, the phone line does not have to be a dedicated line that is separate from the home line and a cell phone with unlimited minutes or a VOIP line can be acceptable.
