The Pleio GoodStart Agent Position Isn’t Quite What I Hoped
If you’ve decided to earn a living working at home, you shouldn’t learn to put all of your eggs in one basket. You need to learn to create multiple sources of income, that way if something dries up, you’ll still have money coming in and won’t find yourself stressing about how you’re going to pay your bills and keep food in your refrigerator.
One of the sources more and more work at home moms have started to look into is the GoodStarter/CallaDay Program review.
What the Pleio GoodStart Program
Some people, particularly the elderly, have a difficult time getting into a routine when it comes to taking their medications. Failing to create a regular schedule can result in serious health problems. The purpose of the Pleio GoodStart Agent is to help these individuals establish a schedule and get the medical care they need. The program currently trains people to fill two different roles. Some people make call patients and ask if the person has time to take a call and talk to someone who will discuss their medication and when it should be taken.
Pros of the GoodStart Program
On paper it seems like the program will be a great way to earn a living. The program expects its agents to work 16 hours a week, which adds up to a steady wage, something that those of us who work at home know is difficult to come by. The earnings are good; you can expect to earn a minimum of $12-13 an hour and some people report earnings of $30. The company handles the training program.
One of the biggest reservations I had was the fee. In order to become involved in the program they needed a $20 fee, which was supposed to cover the background check. While it’s not an unreasonable amount of money, and they don’t want it until after you’ve completed their training program, it still seems like a lot of money. Still, for the type of hourly wage they offered, and the fact that the work was going to be steady I decided to go for it.
I became involved with the program because I wanted to be able to advise people about whether or not it’s a good way to help supplement their work at home income. I made it through the training program in good shape, but that’s where things started to change. While the company does seem to be trying to do what they can to help me earn a living, things haven’t panned out the way it was supposed to. I’ve done very little work for the company, though they do continually contact me saying they’re trying to work things out and get me working regularly… I just hope more work will be available in the future.
I’d love to hear from anyone doing steady work for this company or from the company themselves.
