There is some online training required, including a $75 Agent Access course. There are also fees for training to work with each client, and a monthly fee for the software. I'm never happy about jobs which charge for training, but the company is legitimate. You can find a breakdown of all the possible costs here.
Reviews are mixed about this employer. Some feel the pay is too low, especially in combination with the fees. This varies by client, but is generally per order taken. I've seen quotes from $0.40-0.90 per order. Some say it can be hard to make minimum wage, and there are no guarantees of a minimum pay rate. The per order pay schedule means it's hard to earn much on a slow day. People who like the job love the flexibility and can handle order taking quickly.
