I've worked (at home) for Arise for the past 17 months. To my knowledge, they are the leader in home-based work. They are a reputable company in business for 10 years and growing to Europe. They have contracts with large corporations, such as, Disney, AAA, Sears, Carnival Cruise Lines, Virgin Airway, Apple, Peoples Energy, and others. You need to know basic computer maintenance like defragging, registry cleaning, spyware, scanning, virus scanning and backing up your data. Go to their website to see the basic requirements. You'll have some startup costs. Email me if you want more info.Another work at home company is West, but I do not have personal experience with them.Source(s):www.arise.com
