Arise Virtual Solutions is a great company that gives people an opportunity to work from home and provides a very flexible schedule. Arise is a contractor that provides work-at-home personnel to other companies. My interaction with Arise is actually miminal except when I experience computer issues having to do with the Arise portal and Arise certain applications, and power outages. Although I'm employed through Arise, I do online customer service for Staples, which is one of the many clients to which Arise provides online, work-at-home personnel. There are a number of companies you can choose to service when you apply to work with Arise. With average computer skills and the required equipment, you can supplement your income. Arise guarantees a minimum number of hours per week and, for the most part, that is honored. However, at times they have failed do so, although in my experience they have kept that guarantee 90% of the time. This means that your weekly income is not guaranteed. No room for advancement and there is a ceiling on hourly pay which is an increase of 50 Cents to Two Dollars per hour. The hardest part of working as a customer service representative for, in my case, Staples, relates to handling calls within the proscribed amount of time allowed and dealing with uncommon issues, constant upskills and learning new methods and procedures.
No room for advancement, minimal pay increases.
