Do you think you'd enjoy working from home, booking cruises for others? If so, you're in luck because there are a few companies that have regular openings for this type of work.
Keep in mind it's phone work, so all of you non-phone job seekers may not find this is your cup of tea.
These companies are all hiring as of the date of this blog post. If you find they are not, just bookmark their “careers” page and check again later. Home-based positions come and go regularly.
Most of the positions require either past experience in the industry or past experience in customer service and/or sales.
Another perk? Pretty much all companies hiring people to work from home booking cruises will give employee discounts on any cruises you book through them.
Good luck! Here is the list:
1 – Cruise.com
Hires home-based cruise sales agents in most states.
Two years of recent cruise sales work experience is listed as being required, and some openings (but not all) will require that you're bilingual (English/Spanish).
Pay is base plus commission, and they want you to work in eight hour shifts. Training lasts four weeks, and I believe it may be completed online. As of the date of this blog post, it does appear they are recruiting for these positions.
2 – Holland America
Holland America is currently looking for personal cruise consultants in the US to work at home. This job requires outbound calling and sending emails.
Your pay is a base rate of $15 hourly plus commission. This is a full-time role. Benefits are offered with no waiting period. You do have to go through 10-12 weeks of training (paid) prior to starting work.
If hired, Holland America will supply your equipment.
