Work from Home Providing Red Cross Disaster Relief

By Mike Haaren – Co-Founder, Rat Race Rebellion – Updated March 25, 2019

Update March 26 – An RRR FB member reports that the company is informing applicants that the position is filled. The company is still listing the job as open, but it’s possible that they just haven’t had a chance to take it down.


Direct interactions has partnered with the American Red Cross to help those recovering from hurricanes and wildfires. They’re still recruiting part-time people to take inbound calls. Online self-paced training started March 11, but since they’re still recruiting, training appears to still be open. No state hiring restrictions mentioned. 

You’ll begin working after the short self-paced training and a short (online) course on call-taking and finding answers. The pay rate is $10/hr.

Pick your own hours (minimum 15 hrs./week) from among three shifts.

Here’s what they have to say about their company and the openings:

Based in Seattle, Direct Interactions provides contact center solutions using American agents that work from home. We are socially responsible in our business practices and seek to provide great at-home work opportunities for all Americans, including people with disabilities. Our clients rely on Direct Interactions to support their customers by telephone and email while representing their brands with care and professionalism.
