SigTrack Offers a Flexible Work at Home Option
Not only does Sigtrack provide opportunities to individuals who earn a living working at home, but they recently announced that they’re looking to fill 500 slots, making now a great time to apply to the company and add another egg to your “work at home” basket.
What is Sigtrack?
Sigtrack is a data processing company that primarily handles information connected to various campaigns. They provide a variety of information that gets passed on to candidates. In order to keep expenses low, they use a team of freelancers.
Most of the information or data the company tends to gather:
• Petition signatures
• Voter registration information
The closer a big campaign is, the more work Sigtrack has available.
The Positives of Working on Sigtrack
There are two things I really like about Sigtrack. One, when there’s work available, there’s a lot of work, sometimes enough to keep you working steadily for a few months in a row. Second, you’re truly allowed to set your own hours, making it a great source of income when you’re in between other work at home jobs. (See even more jobs like this, I have a big list of Data Entry and Clerical type work.)
There is also a lot of flexibilty schedule-wise. You’ll choose when you want to work and how much you want to work. Having that flexibility is super important to many people, especially those with kids. I honestly think that’s why Amazon Flex Jobs and working for Instacart are becoming crazy popular.
Because all of the information you’ll be working with is connected to voter data, Sigtrack is required to hire citizens of the United States and you will be required to show proof of your citizenship. I strongly suspect that the company will only consider the application of individuals currently living in the United States, though I’ve yet to confirm this information.
The biggest drawback I’ve encountered is that the work can be tedious and repetitious. I know lots of people who are fine with this type of work, but if you’re someone who gets bored and distracted easily, you may want to look for another source of income.
Before Sigtrack will consider your application, you’ll need a newer computer (Windows 7 or more recent), dual monitors, and a reliable, high speed, broadband internet connection.
The biggest problem with Sigtrack is that although there are times when there’s more work than you can keep up with, there are also times when nothing will be available.
One of the best things about Sigtrack is that the payments are reliable and steady. I’ve yet to hear any complaints about the company being late with payments. The rate you get paid depends on the type of data entry work you’ve done. You should expect to make about 3.7¢ for each signature if that’s what you’re working one. If you’re handlings registrations, the pay increases to 15¢. These rates, plus the fact that the work is very easy means that a fast typist can make a really good hourly wage. It is important to note that the company does expect accurate work and pays accordingly. If your work is riddled with typos, they’ll decrease the amount they’re willing to pay.
Each Wednesday, Sigtrack deposits your earnings into your PayPal account.
Although I don’t think the work is steady enough to be a main source of income, I do think that as long as you’re able to meet all the basic requirements, you’ll find this is a great way to supplement your income. It’s also a great opportunity for anyone who is just starting to test the work at home waters.
How to Apply at SigTrack
It really is a 5-10 minute process. I did it myself. You’ll need your state issued ID for verification and you’ll need to just call the Skype ID they provide. (You can use Skype on your smartphone too.) They’ve improved training a lot since the began to make it more intuitive as well.
