What Is Working Solutions Remote Jobs?
Working Solutions is a remote job (Independent Contractor or 1099), that is a female-owned company that’s been around for at least 27 years. Evolved in 1996, before Google, YouTube, and the internet was even a thing.
With working solutions you won’t be a W4 employee but, you’ll become a 1099 work from home independent contractor. In other words, self-employed where you’ll be considered your own business.
The best way that I can describe Working Solutions is that they are almost like an outsourcer. You’re the agent (Independent Contractor) with a company which is Working Solutions.
Working Solutions services many other companies, some of them even Fortune 500 companies. All their clients are under its roof.
If you’ve heard of LiveOps, then you may be familiar with this type of business.
Either way, according to Glassdoor, they’re a decent company to look into.

What Do You Need To Apply To This Position?
First and foremost, there are certain requirements for the tech equipment that you’re going to need.
First you’ll need to bring your own equipment whether it’s desktop or laptop. You’ll also need high speed internet that’s hard-wired.
Wi-Fi is not secure enough, and it gives poor quality for the critical applications.
You’re also going to need a USB headset.
With that said, most small business desktop computers should have at least 8 gigabytes of memory. If you think you’re going to have lots of programs open at one time go for the 16 gigabytes.
Second, you’ll need at least 128-256 storage, and 4 processing cores are recommended if you plan on taking calls with your computer.
If you don’t have a desktop, you can also use a laptop with some exceptions. It’s recommended that the laptop not be a touch screen. They break easily and do things that aren’t intended.
The laptop screen should be at least 15 inches, with an HD screen or better.
Last but not least, since almost all Working Solutions are either over the phone or Web X (face to face over the internet) then you’ll need a quiet area. Therefore, working solutions don’t allow background noise like the seasonal position with Yardi Matrix.
