Remote Jobs at Fortune 500 Companies
Remote jobs are becoming more and more popular at some big-name companies. Employers realize the value that virtual workers bring to their companies and recognize that, in general, individuals with remote jobs are happier. And happy workers means lower turnover rates and a healthier company culture.
So if you’re new to work from home opportunities or are simply looking for a legitimate virtual opportunity, read on to learn about Fortune 500 Companies that offer remote jobs.
In total, the Fortune 500 companies account for $12.5 trillion in revenues, $945 billion in profits, $17 trillion in market value and employ 26.8 million people worldwide.
Any time I see a remote job listed for a Fortune 500 company, I’m quick to share it. Why? Many people still believe that remote jobs and virtual opportunities are all scams. When well-known, high-revenue companies offer remote jobs, it gives a little extra credibility to the entire work-from-home space.
So, to help spread the word about legitimate remote jobs, I’ve compiled a list of Fortune 500 companies with remote job opportunities.
Every time I check Apple’s career page, there are several remote jobs available. Some of the remote jobs Apple hires for includes:
- At-Home Team Manager (leading a team of remote technical-support providers)
- At-Home Advisor AppleCare Phone Team (providing support over the phone)
- At-Home Advisor AppleCare Chat Team (providing support via chat and email)
- At-Home Advisor AppleCare iTunes Phone Team (troubleshooting software, billing, or access issues)
- At-Home Advisor AppleCare Spanish (bilingual multi-support position)
These positions are all employee-based which means you are entitled to benefits (including a free iMac to help you get the job done!) When searching jobs, put “chat” or “remote” in the search field depending on which of the jobs you are most interested in. I know the work from home chat support agent jobs are always popular, so you would want to search for “chat” to see a list of the current openings.
The work from home jobs available with CVS are typically sales based. Sales Executive, Strategic Account Director, and Territory Sales Executive are some of the remote jobs frequently available.
Many of the opportunities are open to individuals across the US, but some require that you live in a particular state or region. For example, the Field Service Technician job will specify which area of the United States you will need to reside in in order to apply.
There are too many CVS Health remote jobs to list here. If you’re interested, head on over to their Careers Page. You can try searching by keyword or location in order to find the opportunity that is right for you.
United Health Group
United Health Group has a lot of remote jobs available for professionals of all experience levels within a variety of fields. From a Senior Java Developer to Relations Representatives and even an Economics Consultant, there really are remote jobs available at United Health Group no matter your experience or profession.
What’s great about United Health is many of their job listings given candidates the option to work in-office or remotely. So, be sure to read any of the remote jobs listed carefully to see if telecommuting is an option. When you land on the United Health Group Careers Page, type “telecommute” in the keyword search box. This will pull up a list of their positions that are remote or have the option to telecommute.
Amazon does not shy away from offering remote jobs to its candidates. In fact, when you’re on the Amazon Jobs page, there’s an entire section devoted to Work From Home:
Sometimes, Amazon has virtual (or “work-from-home”) positions available to qualified individuals who live in some areas. So if you aren’t near a physical Amazon location, or just want to see if there are virtual opportunities in your area, you’re in the right place.
Amazon remote jobs can be found across their many services like Amazon Local, Amazon Destinations, and their Prime offerings.
When it gets nearer to the Holiday Season you’ll see a sharp rise in the number of remote jobs available at Amazon. During the busy shopping season, Amazon ramps up their hirings for their customer service positions which includes chat, phone, and email support. The good news is, some candidates may be extended an offer to continue work after the holidays. So if you have your heart set on working with Amazon, the holidays are the perfect opportunity to get your foot in the door. If you perform well, you can potentially land a permanent position!
American Express is known for providing first-class service to their cardholders. This level of service is not lost on its employees. Day 1 benefits and bonus opportunities makes American Express one of my favorite work-from-home opportunities to share.
Remote jobs at American Express include two very popular options Customer Care Professionals and Travel Counselors. Like Amazon, American Express gears up for the holiday season by adding remote jobs to their Travel department.
Aside from these two remote jobs, there are any number of options available. American Express has a global presence and hires virtual workers around the world. When at their Careers Page, search for “Virtual” openings, as this seems to be the preferred term for their remote jobs.
Known for their financial offering like auto loans, credit cards, and bank accounts, Capital One frequently posts remote jobs for workers in certain locations.
The job I most frequently see advertised is their Work at Home Customer Service Specialist. As the title suggests, it mostly consists of fielding phone calls related to account inquiries. Although these are work from home positions, you may need to reside within 75-100 miles of a particular location. For example, I recently saw openings for Customer Service Specialists in and around the Tampa Bay area. Capital One requires that you show up in office on certain days during the training phase (but most of training is completed from home).
The Capital One Careers Page is a little tricky to navigate. I’ve found it easiest to simply click on “Explore Jobs” and filter down from there. There is no option to search by keyword so you kind of have to keep your eye peeled for remote jobs.
Xerox is a great place to find remote jobs. In fact, they have an entire section dedicated to, what they call, their Virtual Workforce Program. Xerox is one of the first companies to recognize the importance of offering virtual jobs. They’ve been hiring virtual workers for the last 30 years or so.
According to their Careers Page, they currently have over 8,000 virtual workers filling virtual jobs in areas like:
- Customer Service
- Tech Support
- Image Tagging
- Quality Control
- Admin Support
Plus, Xerox is one of the few companies that offers legitimate work from home data entry jobs. Xerox also has their Heroes@Home Program:
Through our Heroes@Home program, we hire qualified veterans and military spouses for at-home employment opportunities. In the past year, we’ve had job placements for customer care agents, image processors, data analysts, help desk specialists, systems developers, leadership roles and many other positions.
So no matter your skills sets, experience, or profession, chances are you can find remote jobs at Xerox that are a good fit for you.
Where can you find remote jobs ranging from a Certified Medical Coder to a Network Security Consultant? The answer is Humana.
Humana is an insurance provider but also tries to help their members live healthier lives. This mission seems to hold true for its employees too. Some of the benefits that come with Humana remote jobs aim to give their employees a healthier life.
If you’re interested in pursuing a career with Humana, you can search their Careers Page using the keywords Virtual, Remote, or Work From Home. This will pull up all of their remote jobs since Humana uses these terms interchangeably to identify their remote opportunities.
USAA is a financial services company that focuses on members of the U.S. Military and their families. I frequently see remote jobs advertised for them in a number of different fields. So whether your background is in finance, IT, or underwriting, chances are you can find suitable remote jobs at USAA.
For example, remote jobs I’ve recently seen advertised were for their Risk-Compliance and Data/Analytics departments. To see their current openings, you can search their Careers Page using the keyword Remote. This will let you see the remote jobs available.
Prudential is one of the largest financial services company helping its customers grow and preserve their wealth. It’s no surprise then that some of the remote jobs available with Prudential involve discussing and explaining retirement options with clients.
These positions are referred to as Communication Consultants, and while I frequently see the Retirement Plan Communication Consultant position, there are other ones available too.
Although these are remote jobs, most of them come with travel requirements at least part of the time.
If you’re interested in learning more, the Prudential Careers Page is easily searchable by keyword.
