Are you in a situation where you have an old, outdated computer — or even no computer — and you really need a work from home job? If so, there are certain companies that will supply a computer and possibly other equipment for you if you are lucky enough to get hired.
Keep in mind that in most cases you are not going to own the computer you’re sent because they may not be exactly giving it to you.
Every company will have different terms in place, but most of the time you may be required to return the computer at the time your employment with that company comes to an end. Also, these companies are not always hiring.
Work From Home Companies That Send You a Computer
#1 – Apple
Apple regularly has openings for the “At-Home Advisor” work from home position. If hired, they will send you an iMac to use for work. I have read SO many good things about this job and the pay! If you’re interested, you can read my review of work from home jobs at Apple, or go here to visit Apple’s site and search for openings.
#2 – Sitel
Sitel hires home-based workers to handle calls for their many clients. Depending on the project you work on, Sitel may send some or all of the equipment you need to do the job.
When you apply, you can work with the recruiter to ensure that you get placed on a project that is right for you. So if you really need a position where the equipment is provided, make sure you let them know that during your interview.
#3 – World Travel Holdings
World Travel Holdings has several work from home positions open throughout each year for travel sales, reservations, etc. They will send you a computer, monitor, mouse, keyboard, phone, and headset to use for working.
According to the website, “Refundable $500 deposit for a company computer and phone (deposit will be spread out over 5 payroll deductions).” So you pay for the computer although not all at once, and you can get it back.
#4 – Sedgwick CMS
This company hires home-based workers to aid in filing insurance claims for the company’s clients via phone calls, faxes, or emails (they do have a non-phone e-support position open from time to time that is just faxes and emails).
If hired, you will receive a computer, two monitors, phone, headset, plus they will reimburse your phone and internet expenses for up to $75 monthly.
Sometimes after I post a list, readers email to let me know of other companies/sites I can add or I find a few more. So here a couple to add to the above:
#5 – Active Network
Active Network regularly hires home-based workers in different locations to handle phone reservations. A reader let me know they send out a Thin Client computer and a headset phone if you are hired. You also receive a keyboard and a mouse. You just have to provide a computer monitor.
#6 – Doctors on Demand
Doctors on Demand hires work at home customer support reps that have at least two years of healthcare experience along with two years of call center/customer support experience.
They offer paid training and if you’re hired, they will send you all the equipment you need to do the job from your home.
#7 – The Yeomen
This company regularly hires work at home community support agents to provide email support for their clients. If hired, you’ll receive a MacBook and all the necessary software you need to do the job.
So that completes the list, but feel free to help me out if you know of any other companies that will send you equipment to do the job from home and I will get them added. Good luck if you apply to work for any of the above companies!
