$15.73 + per hour American Express Work At Home


American Express has been using home workers for a few years now, but they always contracted through other outsourcing call centers.  Now the great news is that AmEx is hiring home workers directly!!

Current home workers for American Express report that they filled out an application on the American Express career site: Click here for AmEx job search   To see if American Express is currently hiring home workers, you must type "Home Based Servicing" in the job search. **

**The job listing comes and goes as they hire for new training classes.  So don't be surprised if it's there one day and gone the next.   I suggest you have your resume ready and thinking cap on so when the position appears again you can JUMP ON IT!**

If you get to apply you will need to fill out the application including all of the regular information like: work history, personal information, citizenship questions, etc.  Pretty standard.  Also be ready to upload your cover letter and resume.  Then you will be lead to an assessment.  Make sure you are ready for the assessment as they rely heavily on this for choosing candidates.


Some applicants report that they received a rejection letter the first or second time they applied.  Many employees report that they applied many times before being called for an interview.  Don't give up!!

Okay, one of the best parts about working from home for American Express is that they supply the equipment!  So that means that you don't have to use your personal home computer or have to go out and buy any new equipment, like the phone or headset.  This is a huge plus!  Employees also say that the trainers are very positive and give a very good feeling about the company.

This is a full time job including a full benefit package (can you say AWESOME!?)
