I get lots of Facebook messages and emails from people who are looking for work from home jobs that don't come with strict, set schedules. This is probably the second most common request I get next to people looking for non-phone work from home jobs.
In the last twelve years, I've actually written about a lot of jobs where you can work whenever you want, but I've never made a list of companies although I do have a list of part time work from home jobs. So this post is a big list of those jobs I've reviewed that allow you to work more or less when it's convenient for you.
Also, please keep in mind that not every company listed below is hiring at this time. If you see something that interests you that isn't open, keep tabs on the company page and check back!
