One of the challenges to working at home is fitting it into an already busy schedule. If you need flexibility in the number of hours and days you work, some of the companies listed here may be able to help.
Below you’ll find a list of companies that often let you set your own schedule in areas of customer services and support, virtual support, phone work, teaching/tutoring, and more.
NOTE: Not all these companies may be hiring at this time. Further, while they allow for flexible hours and schedules, there still may be limits or requirements. For example, some may require you to work during business hours or to put in a minimum number of hours during a work session or the week. Some are available world-wide, while others are restricted to specific locations.
