9 thoughts on “Work From Home Telemarketing For Brighten Communications”
Yes, I do know for a fact that Brighton Communications is a legitimate work at home company. And I can explain the address on the website. This is on a personal level. The owner of the company, his wife just past away this last year. She had been very sick for the previous 4 years leading up to her passing away. Towards the end, he just couldn’t bear to leave to go to work. So he in turn worked from home for a while. And now, he is still working from home, trying to adjust from losing the love of his life. Now, are all of you happy.
For a while the number listed on their website was disconnected. If you look at the street address on Brighton Communications actual website you see the lovely residential home listed on Zillow right now. Also, the picture on Google has a great shot of a gas station parking lot when you Goggle the number. I applied was offered the position; told I would be contacted by my team leader and given credentials to use to access online training. I just needed to fill out the contract and bank info with my social security number. Never heard from them again. They never answered a single call. Never answered an one email. Now, the first thing I do is check out the company’s website. If the number doesn’t work and I can see the guys pool in his backyard at his so called company’s address supposedly given to prospective customers, it’s a pass.
Is this truly hourly pay or is it based on sales in the hour
The pay is either hourly or commission which ever is greater
How long does it take to hear back from them normally?
Usually within a few days. Then you are asked to call in and read a script. Then they ask you a couple of questions regarding your past experience telemarketing. I have done telemarketing for ten years.
I was in Sales ten years before. They are great!! The work is easy if
you have experience in this type of phone work. Highly recommended
If it wasn’t, we would have mentioned that it could possibly be a scam in the article. All of us here try very hard to weed out those scams. We also try to report the red flags.
