If you're already obsessed with the rainbow range of Kitchenaid mixers and exclusive dinnerware collections at Williams-Sonoma, you can make it your career while working remotely. As FlexJobs reports, Williams-Sonoma has offered flexible job options like part-time and remote jobs to their employees for years. Most recently, the company has announced that the brand is now hiring for thousands of remote customer service jobs.
The hiring spree began earlier this summer, but it will continue well into November as the holiday season ramps up. The bulk of hiring will be around mid-October through mid-November, with a hiring rate of 200 flexible workers per week. The company plans to hire about 3,500 seasonal customer service associates in all.
To qualify, you must live within 1.5 hours of a Williams-Sonoma Customer Care Center, and you'll need a computer or laptop with high-speed Internet access, a compatible headset, and a web camera for live virtual interaction. If you're hired, you’ll get three weeks of paid training from the comfort of your home, and the pay is about $12 an hour. Seasonal, full-time customer service associates usually work around 30-50 hours a week over five days, and that usually includes one weekend day.
And as for the perks, you'll receive 40 percent off select merchandise, access to an employee recognition program, and associate engagement contests and events.
The remote job sounds like a pretty sweet gig — and a good way to to earn some extra money around the holidays. Current openings include locations like Georgia, Ohio, and Texas. To apply, head to the Williams-Sonoma’s website.
