What Users Say: (From Glassdoor)
I have been working at Virtual Vocations for less than a year
I found my place at Virtual Vocations after a few months of scrolling their site looking for the perfect job. I love working with all the wonderful people here and communicating daily on Slack. There is some flexibility with hours, which leaves time to take care of family matters, appointments, etc. Pay is extremely generous compared to other similar industries. I love helping people find telecommute jobs and every day I feel like I’m contributing to something great!
Hours are often early so that we can get jobs posted for job seekers as soon as possible in the day. This is NOT a con for me since I’m an early bird, but it could be for some.

Remote friendly company, frequent communication, clear guidelines, and reviews that aim to help you improve. Many days there was extra work and an opportunity to earn extra money.
Some days there were draughts in work. Pay sometimes felt a little low to the work involved.
