Earn Money Working for JetBlue While in the Comfort of your Own Home
When I first started this working from my home gig, I never, ever would have thought the opportunity to work for a major airline would ever present itself, mostly because whenever I think about airline, I think about people who have to work at the airport: baggage handlers, luggage checkers, pilots, mechanics, attendants, etc. However, in recent years, it’s come to my attention that many of the biggest airlines in the world are actually legit sources of a steady work at home income. One such airline is JetBlue. (See all kinds of home based customer support jobs on the Work at Home Directory – Customer Support page.
JetBlue has created a program in which certain aspects of their customer service is provided by freelance contractors who are working from the comfort of their own home. What I like about the way JetBlue has set up their program is that it provides opportunities for everyone who has a minimum of 2 year’s worth of experience working in customer service. Unlike some similar opportunities that require a Bachelor’s degree, the only educational requirement JetBlue has is that you’ve earned a high school diploma or a GED.
You should be aware, that before agreeing to work with you, JetBlue will first conduct a 10-year background check. They also require that you take a pre-employment drug test.
Is This Region Specific Work at Home Opportunity?
It looks like there was a time when the only freelance contractors Jet Blue worked with were ones located in Salt Lake City, but from what I can tell, that has changed. Now it looks like JetBlue works with anyone, however you do have to be located in the designated calling area.
Although this is a work at home opportunity, if JetBlue accepts your application, you will have to travel to Salt Lake City where you’ll complete an intense training program. After that’s done, you’ll return home and start earning a living.
I’ve been unable to learn if the training period is paid or if JetBlue will pay your travel expenses to Salt Lake City.
So far, I’ve been unable to find any information about how much JetBlue compensates their freelance contractors, so if anyone has worked for JetBlue and is willing, please feel free to pass the information along. What I did learn was that in addition to regular compensation, the company is ready and willing to offer benefits, including a travel package.
From what I can tell, the one downside to working for JetBlue is the hours they’d expect you to keep. Based on their list of job requirements, it looks like they would most likely expect you to work on at least some weekends and major holidays. The good news is that if you prefer working nights, there should be plenty of opportunities to pick up hours.
Before you start providing customer service to JetBlue customer, you’ll need to:
Have high speed, reliable internet
A Flexible schedule
Knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite
The ability to type a minimum of 25 words per minute.
This is a legit work at home opportunity that I think sounds fantastic. While I don’t have any firsthand experience working for JetBlue, they’re a large company and assume that they do right by their freelance contractors.
Have you done any customer service work for JetBlue? If so, I’d love to hear about it.
