What will I be doing working for OnPoint?
OnPoint basically operates as a virtual call center company. The work from home position they hire for is called an advocacy coordinator. Because agents working for OnPoint sign a nondisclosure agreement, there is not a lot of information out there on this position. I have heard it is outgoing phone calls but no sales involved. Every Advocacy Coordinator has the flexibility to set his or her own schedule depending on the needs of the project and calling times available. A minimum of 25 hours per week is requested.
