IRS Order Entry Positions Still Available

 

We continue to recruit for one the best jobs in the virtual world! Although the IRS Order Entry Clerk jobs are seasonal, this job provides an excellent experience for your motivated consumer who strongly desires a fast-paced position, wants to learn, and wants to enhance their customer service skills. 

 

Because the job is part of the Service Contract Act, the rate of pay is good (generally $9.00 -$13.00/hr) as well as a Health & Welfare benefit of $3.59 per hour worked to be used towards health-related expenses. And, this contract provides $1.00 per hour worked towards Internet/phone expense up to $80.00/month. 

 

The job starts off slowly and builds momentum for the IRS tax season. The best performers are asked to work year round; however, most are ramped down as the peak season ends. NTI will then place most of those ramped down from the IRS job into other jobs as available.

 

Spaces for the IRS job are limited to those who live in selected U.S. counties. VR counselors, click here to see if we are recruiting in your county. Your consumer can be advised to visit the NTI website and review the Careers section.

NTI University 
 
NTI University is the educational branch of the National Telecommuting Institute. Our focus is to present free self-paced and virtual instructor-led training designed to help your consumer develop and refine the essential skills companies require of their virtual workers. The NTI Certification curriculum provides a base of knowledge for future virtual workers leading to the designation of being NTI Certifiedô.
