Conclusion:

This is a legitimate company to work for. However, some of the jobs offered by this company are for the call center. They offer work at home position for some of the regions, not all regions have an opening for work at home positions. Many people enjoy working for this company, the job experience, benefits, and the special events the company has for its employees. However, there are a few people that have complaints about a few offices within the company. They feel that the people working there are abusive, don’t help, and it isn’t a good job being stuck at an office call center.

In order to find out if there is work at home positions available, you’ll need to visit their website and search for jobs in the country you live in. Each country has its own job listing, how to apply, and requirements they are looking for. The company does pay on time, has different benefit packages you can select from, and offers you a chance to advance within the organization. If you’re looking for a more permanent job position with work at home benefits, it’s worth checking out this company.
