? for those with work-at-home jobs, doing telecommunicating

I have an interest in a job I saw on craigslist, listed in my town. it is basically a debt collecting agency. they have a website and it seems legit (they arent listed on the better business bureau website, but they are local and I have contacted the ceo through email to ask questions...). well I assume most of my work would be online-based (the job opening is for homebound work), however they require me to be available for phone calls. I have a 14 month old. share your story: if you work in a similar field, how you do it with a infant/toddler in the home. do they disrupt you when you're working? how do the hours work or is it just based on how many calls or emails you have to do per day or week? the company I may apply for pays by commision and bonuses...

  • I have a 4 year old and a 4 week old. My 4 year old does sometimes interrupt, but I can put on a movie for him and he will watch that while I make my calls. The 4 week old sleeps a ton, so I try to work my calls around when he's sleeping or at night. It is possible, you just have to figure out what works with you best. My suggestion is naptimes and bedtimes.
