I have found certain sites and rumors that state that Amazon at Home Jobs are a Scam.  I’m here to tell you that these sites have the wrong information.  I have also found a site that have real Jobs at Home listed, and Amazon was there, yet it wasn’t for Jobs at Home.

I did more research, and by the way I’m an expert at researching on the internet, and I have found the real site for Work at Home Jobs at Amazon!!!

Here are some sites that state that Amazon is a Scam;

One site gave this link to find a Work at Home Job at Amazon; and even with a search for work at home…..there are 500+  pages to look at;


Anyways there are just a few, there was one site of Work at Home Moms, that mentioned that Amazon didn’t hire Work at Home positions.  Just to say with a good search will find just about anything, it depends how you look for it.

The Work at Home Jobs for Amazon are only in certain States and Cities, they have them in Tucson, Arizona, Oregon, Salem and Olympia, Washington.  Below you will find the link for these Jobs and the description as well.

The site for the REAL WORK AT HOME Jobs is;

On this site there is a lot of information about Amazon, and Careers at Amazon, you can check that out.  Then when you’re ready click on the link that says; AMAZON IS HIRING US CUSTOMER SERVICE ASSOCIATES – CLICK HERE TO SEARCH FOR POSITIONS.  This is located in the middle of the page.


Here is the Work at Home Description of one of the Jobs posted on the site;

Work Hard, Have Fun, and Make History!


You’ve seen and heard those ads on the internet, in the paper, and on the radio promising great work from home jobs, but you’ve wondered if they’re too good to be true. Well – this one is good, it’s true, and we think you’ll really enjoy it! Amazon is a trusted, dynamic Fortune 100 company, and we love our customers – in fact, we're a bit obsessed with delighting them each and every day. We’re also pretty obsessed with making sure we create a fun, challenging, creative, green, and slightly peculiar work environment for the folks who work here, and we’d love to have you join us.

In preparation for one our busiest time of year – Amazon North American Customer Service is now hiring SEASONAL Work from Home Customer Service Associates in Oregon. There are no sales and no schemes, and you can work from home in your pajamas (really, we don’t mind!) solving customer issues via phone, email, and chat.

The ideal Seasonal Work from Home Amazonian will demonstrate the ability to work independently with the utmost of professionalism, integrity, and dependability. S/he will be confident and organized and will know when and how to reach out for assistance. An Amazonian has a bias for action and is strongly self-motivated not only to take great care of our customers, but also to proactively identify systemic issues that need to be resolved to prevent future customer concerns (Amazonians don’t pass the buck when it comes to customer issues). Finally, an Amazonian is supremely internet savvy and has high technical aptitude when it comes to online tools and research.

Your mission – should you choose to accept it – is to solve problems, answer questions, and resolve concerns presented by our Amazon customers. Our customers contact us by primarily by phone and we hope you can help us deliver customer obsessed results.


Amazon offers a competitive base pay and bonus opportunity, time off, some shift flexibility (shift swaps, flex scheduling), an employee discount, and dedicated resources to support your ongoing growth and development.

All you need to get started is talent and customer obsession, a home computer with high speed internet, an analog phone line, and a dedicated, distraction free home workspace.
