AMVETS is hiring part-time to full-time operators to work from home. The job involves calling homeowners to ask if they have any used clothing or household items to donate, and then setting up the appointments for AMVETS to pick up their donations. Operators are also responsible for verifying and documenting all addresses for the pickups, mailing pickup information into the office, sending reminder postcards to the donors, and also calling the donors to remind them of their scheduled pickup.
The work hours are very flexible, but evening and weekend hours are preferred. The amount of hours per week you will work depends on your job performance and your preferences, and is also flexible.
Note: There is no selling of any kind, and we do not call homeowners to ask for cash or money contributions.
The ideal applicants will be well-organized, detail-oriented, have a clear speaking phone voice, and be fluent in English. Applicants must be able to call the following Illinois towns as a local call: Naperville, Aurora, Downers Grove, Oswego, and Bolingbrook. Applicants who do not have a landline (who use only a cell phone) will be considered, but generally find that working from a cellular phone is too difficult and not efficient. **Applicants must have a phone plan that allows telemarketing, or be willing to switch their current plan to one that allows telemarketing.**
For consideration or more information, call Lois: Monday-Friday 9am-Noon at (708)467-0719
