ContractWorld creates a slightly different work at home experience. The way they’re currently set up, the company connects you with businesses who are currently looking for individuals interested in work at home opportunities.
What Your Work Entails
The great thing about ContractWorld is that it makes it easy to find work you can do at home that doesn’t involve transcribing audio reports or writing pages of website content. Nearly all of the work available via ContractWorld involves working for a virtual call center. It’s a great choice for anyone who likes earning an income from the comfort of their own home, but misses the human interaction they got while working in a traditional work environment. (See my post, Online Customer Service Jobs for more work from home options in customer support.

The great thing about ContractWorld is that they don’t expect you to simply start working for them. They do an excellent job of working with every single freelance contractor and making sure that they understand every aspect of the work they’ll be doing.
According to Contract World's website, pay can vary due to the fact that different clients pay different amounts. But it looks like pay is still decent at anywhere from $11 to $16 an hour. Payday is every two weeks and they offer direct deposit which is convenient. They’re very good about paying on time.
Contract World is very good about making it possible for you to work flexible hours and the company doesn’t have a minimum number of hours that you’ll have to work. At the start of the week, you will have to provide the times you’ll be able to work during the upcoming week. The work is very steady and if you wanted to, you could easily work 20-30 hours a week.
The only thing I don’t like about ContractWorld is the fact that they make their freelance customers pay for their training period. The fee they charge isn’t very high, but I have always been bothered by the fact that any company would insist on charging for training. According to ContractWorld, the length of time training takes varies from one person to the next.
Contract World does expect you to supply your own equipment which includes a landline telephone and a very reliable computer system.
It’s important to understand that while you will be making contacts through ContractWorld and they’re not who you’re actually working for. The companies you could be doing business with include:
• Pizza Hut
• The Shopping Channel
• Trader Corporation
• So Good
This may not be your idea of a dream job. Maybe customer support and talking to people on the phone sounds horrid to you. But listen, if you need a job and you want or need to work from home – this is a legit opportunity. Speaking for myself, I never thought I'd enjoy customer support but I ended up having three different jobs in support and enjoyed them all. To boot, they all allowed me to work from home which was absolutely amazing. I could literally watch the snow falling out the windows, drink coffee and work in sweatpants.
