Hello. I'm a SAHM and was wondering if anyone had any information about working at home. If anyone knows of any companies that hire for work at home positions nationwide or in the San Antonio area I would love to hear about them or if you have any information at all about working at home I would really appreciate it.

If you like phone work, there's alpineaccess.com. I don't have any experience with them personally, but I've heard decent things about them. I think a lot of call centers will let you work at home, but you have to meet their requirements obviously, like no barking dogs, no crying children in the background, high speed internet and a land line, etc.

Good luck!

Don't you love living in a city where both parents don't have to work to make ends meet?

They do in my house. That is still assuming one person makes a decent salary.

For anyone who has held down a work from home job, how is the pay? Is it something a person can do part time? What are the hours like full or part time? I know your on the phones, but what do you do?

You might also consider doing secret shopping. It definitely is more for spending money rather than paying-the-bills money, but it might work for you depending on what you need. One place to get started is the Volition website (can't remember if we can post websites here or not - just do an internet search for Volition mystery shopping) - it has forums where you can see some jobs that are available, get feedback from people on what companies are reliable, etc.

I currently work from home and have been for over a year, I do medical transcribing- you would need to be certified- it has it's pros and cons, you are self employed. That means, if you are sick or need a day off- you dont get paid. Or if your family wants to go on vacations- you dont get paid. There are no 401k programs and such. on the other hand you are in the comfort of your own home and you dont have to deal with all of the "office politics"

Volition is the best place to get started, but you really have to work at it to make any decent money. And for a SAHM it's pretty difficult because you aren't allowed to take children with you. I did it when I first moved here 4 years ago. I got lots of free food and made about $1000 over 4 months. Not that great of an income.

Google is hiring for home based positions, but I think they require a Bachelor's degree.
