You will call the corporate office and/or call center of companies, who sell tangible products, to find out the purpose of certain substances in the products they sell to consumers. And, you will document small bits of information (date of call, time of call, call center call or corporate call, who you spoke with and their employee id number, purpose of substance) into our system, which you will have access to from your home office or wherever you have access to a computer and the internet. You will be provided with the substances we are seeking out information on along with phone numbers to call for answers.
Keep in mind, when and if you have to place a call in to the corporate offices of a company, the number may not be local for you. But call center calls are always toll-free numbers.
Approved Phone Options & Background Noise:
Most importantly, the answers must come from a live person via corporate office or call center. No emailed answers, no website answers, etc. We're still contemplating on whether to allow live chat support answers (we'll let you know if we approve of this method; until then, stick to the phone-ins). This is strictly a phone-in job.
With that said, we are not at all concerned with how you choose to place the phone call to these companies, nor are we concerned with any background noise when placing the call. So, if you have kids, pets, loud neighbors, outside noises coming in, etc., that's fine just as long as you can accurately hear the answer to your questions so you can accurately input it into our system.
Simply be yourself. You are a consumer just like everyone else in this world. So, call in as a consumer wanting to know the purpose of the substance in question. You are not to disclose this job with whom you are speaking. Remember, you are simply a consumer.
Ignore the Set Budget (you tell us what you want):
We will pay a fixed price, but will consider paying hourly if you prefer. Fixed or hourly, when bidding please let us know the rate you will be comfortable and HAPPY with receiving for this project.
Expected End Date:
No later than 2 months from the date of hire.
