I applied for this position yesterday, and today I was sent a link to an on-line test which I passed - basic typing, spelling, Internet and Windows questions. Just waiting to hear more now!

Here's the link:

I saw this also but haven't gone any further as yet.

Does the link let you in on anything else, like rate of pay, hours you may be expected to put in or hours of operation ie am,pm?

You put in your availability in the application, but need to be able to commit to at least 10 hours a week. It sounds as though they are fairly flexible and willing to work around you.

You'd be a contractor rather than an employee for an Australian company, taking calls from customers and confirming order details, but it doesn't mention a rate of pay.

You need to have an ABN, or be willing to get one (very easy), and have a computer with broadband Internet and Windows XP, a corded telephone, and be willing to purchase a hands-free headset. It also sounds as though you need to be familiar with an e-mail program such as Outlook and database such as Access.

Hope that helps! I'll let you know if I hear anything more.

Hi MellissaD,

I hope anyone else who applies for this has more luck than I did.

Good Luck Ladies

I can't vouch for the legitimacy, though one thing in its favour is that it is being advertised through a recruitment/outsourcing company. I guess I'll find out, but I though it couldn't hurt to apply. I can always say no if it turns to be dodgy original.gif

Try going here: http://www.salesforce.com.au/career.asp

Then clicking on Job Search on the left hand side.

Under "Locations" select "@Home (Work From Home)"

Then click "Search" down the bottom. The job details should come up, then just click on the position title.

Sounds alright but I hate jobs that don't advertise the rate of pay so probably wont apply.

I'm just wondering if I should apply...considering I'll be having a baby in less than three months  huh.gif

Since it's a contractor position, I'm sure you could stop when the baby arrives  original.gif

Doh - every time I click on Apply it doesn't do anything!  I can get it to open as a new link, but then it comes up with an existing customer login screen??  The print application link doesn't work either....can anyone help? sad.gif

Well I bit the bullet, so thanks for that link biggrin.gif

Suse - The screen that comes up should say "Begin job application
To begin your job application, please enter your e-mail address below:", and underneath is a box to type your e-mail address into.

Under that it says "Existing applicants:
If you have previously applied for a position with us, please use the same e-mail address as your previous application.
This will assist us in processing your application as quickly as possible. You can update your e-mail address upon starting your application." in a yellow box.

Is that what you're getting?

Mellissa - thanks for replying to me, it's frustrating me senseless! LOL  I can't work out why the button links won't work for me!  cry1.gif   I don't get teh screen as you mentioned, it simply has the Existing Applicant Login box.  Wouldn't it have to be the way though, the one time I actually really want to do something I have an issue!!

Go to http://www.salesforce.com.au/

Click on the "salesforce.jobs" button

"Job search" in the left menu

Select "@Home" in the "Locations" menu

Click "search" down the bottom

Sounds good, but I can't be bothered getting an ABN then all the associated crap that goes with it such as BAS etc.

If you earn under $50k per year though you don't have to register for GST. You have the ABN and quote it but you dont register for GST or charge it, therefore no BAS or CRAP  laughing2.gif

"You must register for GST if your enterprise has an “annual turnover” of $50,000 or more (or $100,000 if you are a non-profit organisation). Once you do, you will need to charge GST, issue “tax invoices”, and submit GST returns to the Tax Office."

I had a call about this job this morning, and I can confirm that it is definitely legit. You'd be working for an extremely well-know Australian company. I'm not sure I'm allowed to say who it is, so I won't. But rest assured it's all above-board.

Hey Mellissa, how long did you have to wait before you found out you passed the test?
