Work from Home Jobs – Part-Time Telephone Data Collectors Needed 

Westat, an established research company founded in 1963, is advertising again for part-time Telephone Data Collectors. These are legitimate data collection jobs (you’ll be doing phone interviews), no sales, no telemarketing. Part-time, training provided. Earn up to $12+ per hour. No state hiring restrictions are mentioned.

Westat is headquartered in Maryland and has thousands of Data Collectors and other staff in the US and overseas. It hires Telephone Data Collectors to conduct interviews on subjects such as transportation, health, education and the environment. The work commitment is 15-40 hours per week.

You must be 18 and have a landline phone. A home office isn’t required. You’ll need a quiet place for training and the interviews you’ll be doing, a wired internet connection, and at least 6 months’ call center or phone survey experience.

Hourly Pay

Pay for the job isn’t quoted, but employees report $12.32 per hour on Glassdoor. (Westat hasn’t confirmed these figures.)


The company offers health, dental, and life insurance, 401(k), tuition reimbursement, and paid and unpaid leave. Benefit eligibility varies for part-time, hourly, and temporary employees, the company says. For more on benefits, click here. Employee reviews give the company overall 3.3 stars out of 5.
