Work at Home with LiveOps Application Process

It is simple to apply for a work at home position as a freelancer with LiveOps.

First, you fill out their basic application. This includes some skill tests and a voice audition.

Next, LiveOps will review your work at home application. If your skills match those of LiveOps' current clients, you may be extended an invitation.

If you receive an invitation, you will be given some paperwork to fill out. LiveOps also performs credit and background checks on all work at home applicants. They will run these checks now.

After you send your paperwork to LiveOps, and they verify your credit and background checks, you will be added to the LiveOps Home business platform.

You will then need to complete online certifications before beginning work.

One downside with applying for work at home positions with LiveOps is that they do charge $50 for the background and credit check. Another is that you do not get paid during your certification times.

But, I encourage you to check out the work at home opportunity offered by LiveOps for yourself.

Live Ops is a very legitimate company. Even though you do pay for a background check, it's not a problem. After your training, you will make that money back quickly. My husband has thought about leaving his regular 9-5 position because the opportunity to make more is great. The only problem is we need the medical insurance for our children. There are two different types of positions. A Direct Response and an Independent Sales Agent. The Independent pays more than the direct, so make sure you know what type of position you are getting hired for.
