5 Work From Home Telephone Survey Jobs [Legit & Researched]!

If you don't mind the idea of phone work from home but would prefer not to do customer service or sales, you might consider applying for work from home telephone survey jobs. I've been coming across a lot of different companies lately that hire for this.

While telephone interviewer jobs are outbound calling, you may not be quite as likely to irritate the people you call because you aren't trying to sell anything.

Instead, you're just gathering information. The type of information you're gathering will depend on the company you work for and what type of business they are in.

There are several different companies you can apply with to become a surveyor/ interviewer.

Below I've provided the name, website link, and some brief information about each company. Keep in mind job openings come and go, so there may or may not be openings now.

Work From Home Telephone Survey Jobs

1 – Apptical

As a phone interviewer for Apptical, you are contacting people who have signed up for insurance, asking about medical histories and things like that.

The people you call should usually be expecting you to contact them with the questions, so there won't likely be as many irritated people on the other end of the line.

No rate of pay is listed and this info is hard to find as Apptical employees must sign an NDA promising not to reveal that info.

There are apparently opportunities to work either full- or part-time and you will need a land line phone. There are also a lot of inbound calls where you talk to insurance agents.

6 – Bonus Tip – Check FlexJobs For Even More Interviewer Jobs

FlexJobs is one of my favorite sites to use for finding remote jobs and learning about new companies that hire remotely.

The great thing about FlexJobs is that they guarantee ALL listings are scam-free. They list hundreds of jobs — all of which are either remote or flexible in nature — five days per week. There are also no ads on the site.

Because there are no ads, they do charge a membership fee since that is the only way they can see a return on their job-searching efforts. But it's cheap — you can get access for only $2.95 for the first 14 days just to see if you think a subscription would be worth it!

If you sign up and don't like it, it's very easy to cancel right away so you are not billed again for the following month.

Go here to check out FlexJobs.

Good luck!
