Default Market Research Telephone Interview Positions

I'm looking for a work at home position doing telephone research surveys. I've seen one but it requires a bachelor's degree???? WTF these are entry level telephone positions where you read a script...

Any companies that hire for this type of work with work at home positions that don't require a college degree? If I had the college degree I sure would not be working for $10 an hour.....lol

Default Maritz

You might Search for Maritz Marketing, I think that is the correct spelling

I've seen this before where they were requiring a bachelor's degree to get hired doing telephone research surveys. Not sure if it was the same company, but betting it is. Seems like those are pretty high qualifications for conducting a survey, but there are also a lot of unemployed people out there with bachelor's degrees. So maybe they can afford to be picky?

Default Gallup

I am not sure what company it is but Gallup people that were full time were making as much as $75,000 doing the same thing. High School students can get hired there part time and they do not have a degree nor do all of the full timers.

Gallup is considered, if not the best, one of the best in the industry and you can have TV, fridge, laptop and other stuff on the job there.

I hate they are so far from me now or I would not be trying to work at home because they are super flexible and don't care when you work as long as you get the job done.

I'm wondering if it's this one: (?) and am wondering if you can do it from home?

I'm beginning to believe that marketing research as a whole just has not adopted the remote concept yet.

There are tons of jobs for telephone interviewers in house but every lead I find and follow for a remote worker solution for telephone market research is bust.

Depressing. I need another egg soon. The one I have is not enough money to cover my bills and the second one I was working I can't work at anymore. I just can't do it.

Survey Center Opportunities

Westat-You will need to Google, I am not sure how easy it is to get hired. I had worked for Gallup and it was really
easy for me.

Sometimes we have to dig deeper than we dig to find these jobs.

Thanks Grand. The Maritz egg looks good. I'll pass on the Wests one. They look to stuffy for my taste and their insistence on an analog telephone line is outdated at best. I'd never go back to DSL or a old fashion landline phone service.

Instinct tells me that is just not a good company to work for.

The Gallup link that I posted above.... I was wondering if that is the same company that you worked for.

I have been in contact with Gallup and they claim they do not hire home based telephone interviewers.
