Want to work from home? Amazon might be the right place for you! Amazon.com is hiring 5000 part- time work from home workers for it's Virtual Customer Service program. Perfect job for a stay at home parent? Maybe . . . especially if it comes with a discount!

Amazon Work From Home

“There are lots of people who want or need a flexible job—whether they’re a military spouse, a college student, or a parent—and we’re happy to empower these talented people no matter where they happen to live,” said Tom Weiland, Amazon Vice President for Worldwide Customer Service.

Not ready yet? You'll have more chances. "Virtual Customer Service jobs are part of Amazon’s plan to hire 30,000 part-time roles in the U.S. over the next year."

Military Veterans and Spouses

Amazon is looking to hire 25,000 military veterans and spouses to over the next five years - and the military is happy about that.

“Amazon’s commitment and taking an intentional step around military spouse employment truly shows that they do understand the challenges that the community faces and that they can be a part of the solution,” said Kylee Durant, USO Vice President for Transition Technology and Innovation Programs as well as a military spouse. “To have an innovator like Amazon recognize the need – the deep need – that military spouses have for employment says to me they are a catalyst for greater societal change in this country.”

Amazon Benefits

"...life and disability insurance, dental and vision insurance with premiums paid in full by Amazon, and funding towards medical insurance," along with the company's Career Choice program, which "pre-pays 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a future career at Amazon."

How much does it pay? From the job listings we could find it looks like the nationwide pay rate is $10.00 per hour. No one is getting rich quite yet, but it's a start! (And I'm always happy when people don't outsource these jobs overseas!)

Moral of the Story 

If you want to stay in your stretchy pants, not worry too much about the pile of legos in your office, and would love to build your work schedule around nap time, this might be the right job for you!
