Today's post focuses specifically on customer service jobs from home, most of which are open right now. There are always plenty of jobs in this niche that are hiring at any given time, and we have quite a few readers with at least some degree of past experience that could help them get hired for a customer-oriented position.
All the companies in the list below are often actively hiring customer service reps at the time of this writing, but don't be surprised if some of the positions get filled quickly.
There are a lot of remote customer support workers out there, and these jobs tend to attract a flood of applications. Even so, when this post eventually becomes dated, don't hesitate to give these jobs a look.
Many customer service companies have enough turnover that they need to hire new workers quite often, so some of these positions might stay open indefinitely.
Good luck if you apply for anything!

I recommend getting a membership at FlexJobs. I'm a member here, and love it! They pre-screen all their job leads for scams prior to posting them and most of what I've found pay a respectable wage. They also have a policy against posting job leads submitted by companies that do not have actual, physical offices.
FlexJobs has been listed as the top site for telecommuting jobs on Forbes, CNN, USA Today, and several other reputable media outlets.
You can go into Account Settings once you have your membership and set it up so it doesn't bill you for the next month if you just want to try it for a month and see how you like it. This is what I did, but I opted to keep my membership.
It costs $14.95 monthly, and it's easy to cancel. You can get 30 percent off your membership if you use promo code AFFILPROMO at checkout.
