Companies You’ve Heard of That Hire Remote Workers

Here's a big list of companies you've probably heard of that hire people to work at home.Working from home is much more commonplace nowadays than it was ten years ago. When I first started researching work from home (probably about ten years ago), I had a lot of trouble finding anything through a basic Google search that didn’t lead me straight toward a scammy-looking website. Thank goodness that’s no longer true!

Even so, many people still feel uneasy about the idea of working from home and worry that they may be taken in by a scam every time they apply for an online position — especially if it’s a company they’ve never heard of before.

I decided to create a list of popular companies that actually do hire people to work from home. These are companies that you and probably everyone else have heard of, but you may not have realized they offer work from home positions! These are major companies and corporations — household names. If you are paranoid about scams and feel “safer” applying to work from home for a company that you know about rather than one that’s new to you, this list may be a good starting point:

1-800-FlowersRead Review – This popular flower company has work from home customer service positions available several times per year. The best times to check for work from home jobs with this company is during Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Christmas.

AAA – Triple AAA has frequent openings for work at home travel support specialists. It may be necessary that you’re local to Phoenix, AZ for these positions. Search “home-based” on the jobs page to see if they are hiring.

AirbnbRead Review – This major company has remote openings on occasion. You can browse their Jobs page and look for any position with “remote” listed for the location. I’ve seen photography and translation positions listed at times.

AmazonRead Review – I think we all know about Amazon! And yes, they regularly hire home-based workers to handle their customer support. Most of the time these jobs are limited to people in specific states. You can do a search for “work from home” on their Careers page to see if they need home-based workers.

American Airlines – This major airline occasionally hires work from home reservation reps. These are location-specific because the company requires that you train onsite prior to working from home. They are not always hiring. You will have to do a search on their Careers page for work from home jobs to see if they are.

FerrellGas – Has occasional work from home customer service rep positions. This is location-based because they require six months of onsite training prior to working from home. You may need to be local to Liberty, MO, but it’s possible they may sometimes hire for this position in other areas, too. Select “Customer Service” under job type on their “Careers” page – there will be a lot of listings to scroll through. Unfortunately they don’t appear to have a keyword search box.

Groupon – Groupon has occasional work from home customer service positions available. You may need to be local to Ohio, Kentucky, or Indiana.

You’ll notice that many of these positions are phone jobs and are also location-based. If you’re specifically looking for non-phone work, you can check out my non-phone resource page here to get pointed in the right direction.

This list is far from complete. Do you know of any other major companies that offer work from home options that I don’t have listed here? Comment below and I’ll try to get it added.

    Thank you for this list! :)

    I’m confused as to why Nordstrom has listed (for their ‘At Home’ department) that “light cleaning” is one of the maintenance tasks required, when it’s supposed to be a work at home job.

    I am guessing that these companies are probably hiring for customer service. One reason in particular is because with the new health care law, most companies have downsized to just hiring part-time workers. They will not have to provide a telephone, computer or desk. This does not surprise me at all. For the person who is looking for part-time work, this is a good opportunity.

      You are guessing wrong. Many “work at home” jobs hire FULLTIME employees. I have worked for such a company since February 2010. My company provides health benefits, a choice of traditional or Roth 40lk and PTO. My particular department is changing so I am exploring options. To assume “work at home” jobs are sub par would be to assume all ‘traditional’ jobs are well-paying, benefit-filled places of nirvana.

    Awesome list, Anna! Isn’t it amazing how many well-known companies are now coming on board the “Work-at-Home Train”? I’d love to see even more.
