20 Work at Home Jobs Paying $20 An Hour or MORE

Do you want to work at home making a great deal more than minimum wage? If so, this post should get your wheels turning. I have created a list of several companies that pay their workers $20 an hour or more to work at home.

It goes without saying, but when you're talking about this kind of pay, you are almost always talking about companies that are more likely to require a very specific skill set or a college degree.

It's very rare to find a work at home job that pays in this range where you need no prior skills or experience to start.

And if you don't have the right skills or experience to do the jobs listed below, keep in mind that at least now you know where the money is!

So if you're thinking of furthering your education in order to get higher-paying work, you know what industries to possibly focus on.

So with that said, let's get on to the opportunities! As always, I cannot guarantee these companies are hiring right now, but if they are on the list, they have hired home-based workers in the past and paid $20 an hour or more.

  1. Hi,
    I am looking to retire from a 21 year career in law enforcement, mainly as a criminal investigator and will need to find a work at home type job.. I would like to have a full time position that would allow me to work remotely from my home, located in the east Texas area. I do not have a college degree, but I do have a variety of experience provided by my lengthy career in law enforcement.

    Are there any ideas of jobs that would be suitable? The jobs do not need to be law enforcement related.


  2. I promote a number of work at home jobs or assignments that I believe can generate some good incomes. But you must do your diligence to visit each of the websites and read up their offers, to be convinced they are worth the investment. Though there are millions of scams on the internet, there are still a few genuine ones. Sometimes, one may need to take necessary risks.

    • Hello Sylva,

      I am actively searching for legitimate work-from-home opportunities.

      I will be most appreciative if you will help me in my search.

      Of course, I will do my diligence and visit each website and thoroughly research their worthiness.

      Your help is greatly appreciated

  3. Hi! Having big surgery left me in bed and home for months to go, disability don’t pay and I need money to cover bills and baby, any real job out there that I don’t have to talk on the phone, but maybe answer emails or stuff like that. Any idea please…. I am desperate here

    • Hi Samia, I don’t have a lot of information on companies hiring in your location. However, you can check this post for worldwide work at home resources -http://realwaystoearnmoneyonline.com/where-to-look-for-worldwide-work-at-home/

  5. I’ve applied for Book in a Box, but it was a great experience. They didn’t leave me wondering where my I was in the process for weeks on end. Also, I’m on their list for when other things come up. I’m working on “me” so that I can make a career move into something that I enjoy and be paid what I’m worth!

    Good luck everyone!

  6. Hi,
    I desperately need a work from home based job. I live in Saudi and have seen most of the online jobs does not fall in this region.
    I have a bachelors degree in business administration.
    Having a hard time finding one!
    Can anyone help me find one?

  7. I have applied for at least 3-4 of these and they require experience as well. I have a masters degree in HR and have took IT classes but couldn’t get past the application. I have been 0 for 4 because my experience is in telecommunications (something I am trying to get away from because of the policies). If anyone has tips let me know. It is heartbreaking to go to school and get ‘typecast’ into a job.
