  • Must have 20+ years insurance experience
  • Must have a dedicated workspace at your home
  • Must have a fully updated computer system to utilize during working hours

You can expect a fairly extensive interview process and submitting of your qualifications, as well as discussions with WAHVE to determine the type of work and the days and hours you wish to work.  When a job request is received that matches your skills and the hours you want to work, you are contacted, and if you agree, your information is passed to the client for their approval.  If the client approves, you then begin working as a WAHVE employee.

Training:  Training is done over the web in order to learn the client’s processes, workflows and management system.  You are paid for your time while you are in training.  Typically this will be three to five days.

How Do I Work?  You log into the client’s system on your home computer each day to complete your work, the same as if you were working directly in the client’s actual office.

Pay:  Pay is based on the job and experience.

Schedule:  Work is both part-time and full-time, and your work schedule will be based on your preferences and the client’s needs.  You are not necessarily limited to working only day time hours.

You must have a working PC/Mac or laptop with a minimum of Windows XP, 2.4 Mghz processor, 1GB RAM and latest virus and spyware software.  Our technology staff can review this with you.  Some clients use dual monitors and you may be required to purchase one.
