5 Companies Hiring to Fill Hundreds of Work from Home Jobs That Pay $16+ per Hour


Summer might be starting to sizzle, but these employers have hundreds of cool work-from-home jobs to fill.

From remote customer service and tech support to virtual care advising and home student scoring positions, you have a decent shot at finding a full-time online job with good pay ($16+ per hour) and benefits from a company on this list. Furthermore, these companies will often provide you with paid training, as well as a free PC or Mac computer, so that you can do your job remotely.

Here are five companies hiring to fill hundreds of remote jobs over the coming months.

1. Anthem

For example, Anthem offers medical, dental, vision, and life insurance plans, as well as a 401(k) and an employee stock purchase plan. The company reportedly pays competitive salaries, too. However, salaries and qualifications vary by job type and location.

2. KellyConnect

You don’t even need to have any tech support experience. You just need to have good communication skills and at least six months of customer service experience. KellyConnect will even provide you with all of the equipment you need to perform the job, as well as paid training. So, again, you don’t need any formal tech support experience for this position.

According to the job ad, your job will be to interact with up to five customers at a time using various media platforms, which include inbound and outbound calls, as well as inbound chats. You can expect to help customers with a wide range of issues, from billing and fraud management to troubleshooting and resolving common tech issues, to helping users access their accounts and data.

As mentioned, the starting pay is $16.50 per hour. However, if you can meet performance and attendance metrics within the first 60 days, your pay will increase to $17.33 an hour. Furthermore, if you prove yourself as being capable of handling more advanced customer service issues, your pay can rise to $19.83 an hour.

In addition to medical, dental, and vision coverage options, there are also great opportunities for advancement to positions in Quality Assurance, Training, and Leadership.

3. Wellthy

Unfortunately, the company isn’t hiring remote workers from the following states: Alaska, Hawaii, Maine, Mississippi, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Vermont, and West Virginia, according to the company.

However, if you live in an eligible state, have a high school diploma, enjoy working independently and helping others, are fairly good at working with technology, and possess some basic knowledge about the healthcare industry, then you might enjoy being a virtual care advisor helping the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions manage their healthcare needs.

The hiring process is quite rigorous — and includes thorough screening, interviews, background checks, reference checks, and a case study. Then, you need to complete a two-week bootcamp and pass a certification exam to become a care advisor. In addition to competitive pay, Wellthy also offers virtual employees medical, dental, and vision coverage, as well as other benefits.

4. Conduent

Virtual customer care associates earn $16 an hour and Conduent provides all of the equipment required to perform the job. The company describes the role as “helping people solve complex problems and delivering solutions.” The job does require being able to manage a high number of customer service calls. Therefore, in addition to good customer service skills, you need to be able to have solid computer skills, including being able to type at least 25 wpm, and a high school diploma or GED.

Other important skills that can be helpful in this role include problem-solving and being especially good at multitasking. You will need to pass a series of short assessments during the application process — and then complete a mandatory paid training program before being hired.

5. Cognia

The job reportedly pays $18 an hour with no state hiring restrictions.

However, work from home assessment scorers must have a Bachelor’s degree, as well as at least two college courses in the subject(s) that they are scoring. Cognia hires assessment scorers on a per-project basis, but you might be able to land multiple projects throughout the academic year. You will need to be able to carefully follow the established scoring guidelines and instructions when scoring student responses.
