Finding working from home opportunities is one of the most difficult tasks out there. I know a lot of people run across opportunities and what usually seems promising turns out to be nothing more than a waste of your time and money.
There are a lot of ways to find work at home jobs. The problem I find that people face is finding a legit and perfect job. If you do find a legit job, nothing is going to be perfect so my suggestion is to either take the good with the bad or keep searching till you find a job worth doing.
I was there looking for jobs from home and I found some that were pretty decent jobs, but they never seem to fit the bill for me until I found what I was really looking for.
I’m going to go over MHJS (My Home Job Search) and let you know about the red flags I found. I’m also going to go over what to avoid when you’re searching for these opportunities.
My Home Job Search Website
MHJS’s website looks very professional and appealing. They have a phone number at the top right-hand corner, I’m like okay this seems pretty cool.
I noticed that people can enter their zip code to see what is available in your area. As I was scrolling down, is when I saw the testimonials. This is when the red flags started to pop up in my mind.
Then when I scrolled further down, there was a video. That video was a big red flag for me.
The video itself isn’t the problem, but I noticed that sites that use these videos are not endorsed by what these sites claim. So let us go into detail about the red flags.
All Of The Red Flags
The video is actual footage done by reputable news channels reporting about people working from home.
If you read the fine print right at the bottom of their page, like I just said, the companies listed on their site are not endorsed by MHJS.
What I’m getting at is that the video was placed on their site to let people know that it is possible to work from home.
I don’t disagree that it’s possible to work from home. If you watched that video, the news reported that not MHJS.
If you look at the testimonials, none of the people in that video has testimonials for MHJS.
These red flags lead me to do some research about those testimonials.
Those so-called testimonials are quite deceiving. On their site, they say it said what our members are saying. well, when I did a little digging it turns out those images are stock photos. Here is an image to give you an example.
Where is the trust when a site uses stock photos as their testimonials? People are looking for real experiences and what you get are images that were purchased and placed on their site.
When I clicked on the search jobs now link, it asked for my zip code. Then it went through a series of multiple-choice questions such as,
- Desire weekly income
- Hours you can work
- When can you start work
- Typing skills
Then it took me to create a free account. They asked for my first name, email, and phone number.
The first name and email seem alright, but I’m wondering why do they want your phone number for a simple database of work at home job opportunities?
For me, asking for my phone number was another red flag because with work at home opportunities, they can be very misleading.
Talking to someone on the phone can lead to some sort of business opportunity.
I said this on another site that I reviewed called Next Job At Home.
What I stated in that review is that jobs require a hiring process and no out of pocket expenses. With business opportunities, you’re hired on the spot, and money is required.
So you gotta be careful when a phone number is required when you are going to use a service like MHJS.
You can end up getting phone calls about business opportunities that are quite misleading.
People who call you may make it sound like a job, but then they are going to ask for some sort of fee that you may not be expecting plus there is no guarantee that you will ever make any money.
When landing a job you are not going to pay a dime unless the job lists what are the requirements needed when you apply.
Employers will let you know all the details about the job and you will get paid upon the arrangements you make when you get hired.
What I Did Next
I called the number that was listed at the top right-hand corner. What happened was a recording came on and what was said I felt was quite rude.
What the recording mainly said was that they were experiencing a high call volume and unfortunately they are only accepting calls for their premium members, plus premium members get access to one-on-one coaching and training.
After listening to the recording, it felt to me like they were encouraging people to run off and pay.
I thought the one-on-one training stated on the recording was odd because on the main page in their Q and A area, it said, many of the employers offer training.
I don’t know what kind of one-on-one training is offered because they didn’t list it on their site.
I did look up the number online to see what I would get. I found out MHJS offers an affiliate program.
If you’re unfamiliar with affiliate programs, it’s mainly recommending their site and if people want to pay for their service you make a commission.
I personally feel if you’re going to recommend anything to people, you should stand behind the product you recommend.
I went to their terms and I found another phone number.
I called that number and it was a recording for their support center.
What this recording mainly said was that they are not accepting phone calls right now because they are in the middle of transitioning to a new phone number.
The recording also said that you could email them if you have any questions.
Oh boy, I looked up the phone number in their terms.
I did find the same phone number listed with Ameriplan.
I haven’t reviewed Ameriplan yet, but I’m familiar with it. Ameriplan is kind of in the health insurance industry and its business model is more in the network marketing spectrum.
I can’t guarantee that this service is funneling people to Ameriplan or other business opportunities, but what I can state is that I feel that their site is quite misleading.
I also noticed a 60-day money-back guarantee. As of right now, you are unable to speak to someone in their support center. The only option you have as of now is to email MHJS if you want to reach someone to get a refund.
Like I said earlier in this review, it’s up to you if you want to pay, but for me and after doing my research, I really didn’t feel comfortable paying for a service that seems deceptive.
The Most Misleading Part To Me
I felt what was misleading about MHJS’s site was that they use the words Home Job and they are asking for a fee.
People who are looking for a work at home jobs will tend to trust a site like MHJS because of how the site is presented.
How can you trust a site and pay money when they use stock photos as their testimonials and you can not contact anyone before you pay and then they are asking for your phone number, how misleading is that!
Are There Any Jobs That I Can Do From Home?
Yes, there are, but it’s quite a task trying to find them. I’ve been there and you have to really do your due diligence to find jobs from home.
Here are jobs that I know that don’t require a fee. These jobs are not perfect, but they don’t ask for money and the requirements for equipment needed are quite lenient.
- Pierce Eislen (it is seasonal work)
- Lifebushido (Part-Time Work)
- Mturk (they are not really a job, but you can do tasks and get paid through Amazon)
- Apple offers work at home opportunity. I would suggest checking out their website to find out what is required if you’re looking to get hired.
As for finding jobs from home, what you can do is go to reputable fortune 500 company’s websites and scroll down to the bottom of their page.
Look for any words related to jobs such as,
- help wanted
You may find some work at home jobs that way.
I also recommend looking at free career sites and look through their work at home opportunities, sites like Snagajob, or USA jobs.
I know that people recommend craigslist but do your research first before you even give out any info because, in my book, there are just too many scams in craigslist.
I’m going to warn you that most of the time you’re going to run across a ton of business opportunities.
It’s going to be quite a task to find good jobs at home, but they are out there.
If you find any business opportunity worth trying please before you pay a fee do your research.
What About Business Opportunities?
From my experience, I tried Network Marketing and I personally don’t recommend it. MLM is not for me.
What I learned and really did my due diligence to find what really works and that’s having your own website.
If you think about it, everyone who goes online goes to a website for whatever reason.
There are services out there that can help you with a website. I tried one and didn’t get anywhere near close to where I thought I’d be.
I thought it was never going to happen until I found My #1 Heroic Site.
What I really love about My #1 Heroic Site is that they let people check them out for free. You get a free website, hosting, and 10 free lessons without pulling out a single credit card.
When you check out My #1 Heroic site, you can really understand the process of how building a website can benefit you. I would highly recommend that you at least check them out and see for yourself.
All In All
In my opinion, My Home Job Search is not what it seems. There has to be some sort of trust before people start paying and I felt that MHJS failed at that.
Finding jobs from home is difficult enough. I feel it’s so important to research services because what seems great may not be so great after you do your research.
MHJS uses stock photos as their testimonials, the phone numbers were of recordings and you can’t reach a live person unless you pay. That in itself for me cause me to move on.
Like I said within this review, you are going to do what you’re going to do.
I’ve listed a few job opportunities that you can check out. If you’re really looking at all your options I would highly suggest you check out My #1 Heroic site.
