work from home

If you’re a RRR regular, you’ve almost certainly seen out posts about Sykes’ Customer Service positions and, more recently, their Teacher Quality Evaluator positions. Well, now Sykes is looking for Part-Time Search Quality Evaluators and it may be just what you’ve been looking for!

In this job, you will be performing “simple web searches on specific topics and rating the results [you] find within an average allotted time.”

The company is hiring nationwide EXCEPT AK, CA, DE, HI, IL, LA, MA, MD, ME, NY, RI, VT, WA, Washington DC and Puerto Rico.

Set your own hours (after training). Pay is not noted in their job listing. However, we have heard it is your state minimum, but that’s not official.

Important Note: While it is not a regular occurrence, web searches sometimes turn up unexpected results and that can mean occasionally landing on a page that unexpectedly contains offensive/mature content. Please DO NOT apply for this job if brushes with such content will offend you or trigger an adverse reaction.

Here’s what Sykes has to say about this opportunity:

“Looking for a part-time job? Always wanted to work from home? Want to work your own schedule? We’re looking for people who enjoy a challenge and thrive in an remote environment where things are moving very quickly.

We all know how frustrating it is to search a topic online and not get the results that match our needs. In this position you will use your attention to detail and tech-savvy skills to evaluate search engine results for relevancy and quality. The Evaluator will be responsible for performing simple web searches on specific topics and rating the results they find within an average allotted time. Agents must use their own PC (no Macs) and an activated smartphone with Wi-Fi capability is required. Time is flexible! Can work on your own time (no schedule provided after training). Must work 20 hours weekly. Applicants without strong computer skills will not be considered. You must have the ability to review offensive/mature content without being offended.

People are our most valuable asset and we provide world-class training, benefits and growth opportunities to help you become the best the industry offers.

Unfortunately, we are unable to hire in the following states: Alaska, California, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New York, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and Washington DC.
