Mary Susan Costa, our Director of Virtual Talent, meets with Chris Durst, Rat Race Rebellion founder, to chat about what it’s like to be a Working Solutions’ work-at-home agent. They also answer more of your top questions. Watch now to see!
Working Solutions was created in 1996 to provide legitimate work-at-home opportunities.
Our agent workforce is made up of highly qualified independent contractors. We partner with clients from different industries, providing them with educated and experienced professionals, as well as a talented project management team. Agents like working for us, as evidenced by our #1 rating on Glassdoor.
The basic steps are:
* If no programs interest you, check back often as our offerings change frequently.
Once you complete your profile information, you will have the opportunity to complete our assessments, which include interview questions, real job samples and aptitude tests. The assessments could take between 30 minutes and 45 minutes.
Because of the volume of applications, we only allow one-time testing. Please ensure you have the time and a quiet location before you begin.
You will be notified by email within 24 hours of completing your assessments. That email will contain login information and a link to our Applicant Portal where you can complete your next steps.
We will contact you by email with all the program details. If you accept the terms and are selected, an independent contractor agreement will be drafted. It will outline the scope of the work and your objectives.
Once selected, you will go through virtual preparation to learn the client’s business and customers before beginning work. Instruction can take anywhere from two days to several weeks, depending on the client. You will receive a monetary stipend for your preparation time, providing you meet all the program requirements.
Approved agents will be emailed a link to obtain access to the Opportunities page on the Applicant Portal and can apply for programs that are of interest. This list changes constantly, so keep checking back if nothing suits you. Depending on the client, it can take between a day and weeks before an agent is selected for the program they applied for. Be sure your email is set to accept email from anyone with a @workingsol.com address.
Applying with a new profile is not allowed, they will be rejected. Complete only one profile that you can update in the future. Approved agents can then choose from available programs and apply from there. Only apply once.
Yes, you may update your profile at any time, by clicking on “Profile” within the Applicant Portal.
We will accept new applications from anywhere across the United States, except for CA, NY, PA, WA.
The profile password is case-sensitive, so be sure you enter the correct case as well as the correct letters and numbers.
Please visit https://vyne.workingsol.com/applicant/s/ and log in using your email and Agent ID. If you do not remember your Agent ID, click “Forgot Agent ID?” to have it resent to you.
Agents who have successfully completed at least 50 hours on a program are eligible to post for additional work. Programs are available to active agents first.
Yes, agents are typically eligible to work on two programs at once. We cannot guarantee consistent work will be available, but we do our best to keep reliable and successful agents busy. Please remember that reliability is as important as performance, especially when working with a virtual workforce.
Agents are able to schedule their work hours, but they are responsible for them once set. Agents who consistently meet their commitments and perform well will be given priority scheduling.
All of our agents are self-employed contractors. Traditional employee benefits, such as paid time off and health insurance, cannot be offered. The main benefits are the ability to schedule your hours and work when it is convenient for you—from the comfort of home, without the hassles of commuting and outside expenses.
Working Solutions also offers several agent community perks, including discounts to major computer retailers, and agent rewards and referral programs.
Yes. If you were referred to us by one of our agents, be sure to list their agent ID on your application. Agents who make successful referrals are awarded $200 USD for each one, provided the new talent meets all requirements.
Each program is paid differently. Some pay by the record or entry, while others pay by talk minutes, sales, or a combination of both. Some agents may be paid a set amount per program. Agents have earned the equivalent of anywhere from $9 an hour to $30 USD an hour, depending on the program. Your income will vary, based on the work you are doing, your performance, how much work is available, and how much time you put in.
We offer direct deposit, or we can send checks by mail. Checks are issued twice a month for completed work, which must be invoiced.
It is only available to active agents who currently are on a program.
In order to work on a Working Solutions program, agents must have their own full-size or all-in-one desktop personal computer, or a traditional laptop personal computer that meets the minimum specifications listed in the sections below.
We partner with 2ndGear to provide approved purchase options for agent systems. This is one option out of many. We make these approved systems available to you at a reduced cost. Working Solutions does not profit from the purchase of these systems.

Tablet-based/convertible personal computers (i.e. Microsoft Surface, Surface Book), Chromebooks and mobile phones (unless needed for two-factor authentication) are not acceptable.
Education and Enterprise editions are not licensed for individual use (these licenses would be owned by a larger organization) and are therefore not suitable for independent contractor use.
We do not support Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista or Windows 7.
A PC that is fully updated with all current patches, critical updates, and service packs from Windows Update is requested. These guidelines are outlined for each program as agents are provided with the program offers.
We will support a user with an Intel-based Mac computer given they are running Boot Camp into Windows 8.1 or higher. We do not support Windows running in Parallels or other virtualization software within macOS. We do not support some of the newer Macs currently.
Most commonly, you’ll use Google Chrome, but some applications still use Internet Explorer 11, which is built into Windows 10. Other browsers you may be asked to use are:
Note: The latest AMD Athlon processors are acceptable subject to individual review and are accepted at Working Solutions’ discretion
8 GB RAM or higher
At least 50 GB free space available
Minimum Optimal Screen Resolution:
*The USB headset must connect to audio over the USB connection. Not all Bluetooth headsets that can charge over a USB connection send audio through the USB connection, and are therefore not suitable.
*Note: Agents are responsible to ensure the quality of services with their internet service provider and networking hardware, including but not limited to: network cabling, modems, routers, and all necessary network interface hardware.
The following Internet providers are incompatible:
No. Due to the sensitivity of client software, systems and connections, we cannot support wireless connectivity. During work hours, the wireless connection adapter should be turned off or disabled to ensure that all Internet traffic only goes through your wired connection. Please become familiar with the wireless adapter settings or physical on/off switches on your machine so you may make these changes as needed.
No: All connections to Working Solutions systems and WSOL client systems must be directly through your internet service provider.
