    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Omaha, NE

    I worked at West at Home part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, if you like predictability this is for you. Sprint discount for employees. There is an optional health insurance I believe. However this can be different since Alorica bought out West. Work at home job. Good as a side job or extra money to supplement household income.

    Cons

    Hours are released at any given day or time, which means you have to baby sit the computer, you can not select hours on anything other than a laptop or desktop. Hours were scarce esp outside of holiday/Christmas Season. No growth or advancement opportunity. Pay was 0.25 over my state minimum wage.
