A great work at home opportunity!
« on: May 17, 2014, 09:40:47 PM »
I worked at Zirtual for a few months as a work from home personal assistant and thought that it had its pros and its cons.

Pros

*Pays biweekly and on time
*Some flexibility
*Great support team from management
*Encouraging team
*Ability to build a long term relationship with the team
*Continuous learning and growing opportunities

Cons

*Not much ability to move up the ladder
*Clients want the world for a small hourly pay rate
*Some times clients email, call or text after hours
*Pay for training is very minuscule
*Very long and difficult hiring process
*Pay depends on client load and clients cancel at any time (unpredictable pay)

I hope this information helps anyone thinking of joining the Zirtual team!

This sounds more like a full time work from home job. Is that right? What kind of tasks did you perform as a home personal assistant? I can't fathom what that might include. Maybe something like emails or proofreading for your clients?

This sounds like something I would like to get into. Is this a full time job from home or something more simplistic?

How much do you typically earn working for Zirtual?  I have looked into this on their website, but not 100% what they pay.

Is the personal assistant job the only one available or are there other types of jobs included. Is Zirtual available worldwide or is it for US citizens only? How much do you average per hour? Is it a full time job or a part time one? And finally do you have to take any test in order to be accepted? Thank you in advance for your answers.

This looks like an interesting opportunity as long as the pay reflects the work that you do. I am not sure if there are time limits on the tasks? Are you paid by the task? Or does it pay by the length of estimated time? Having a personal assistant job can be pretty vague. Hopefully someone can post regarding what they have found regarding this company. Thank you :)

This could be a great opportunity if you are qualified as a PA. You need to know what you are doing. The site only caters for US residents. The money would be great for a non US resident.

I haven't heard of Zirtual.  It does sound like it could be a full-time work from home job.  It sounds like something I would be interested in trying, but I'm not sure about the cons.  Thank you for letting us know what is good and bad about the job before taking the risk of applying.

Never hear of Zirtual ....wow ....Im looking at the site right now ....I am gonna look into it ....I didn't know that kind of thing even existed.  Before I found that site Workersonboard on youtube with the young lady that tells you about jobs, I was under the impression that working from home jobs were all assembling beads and stuff that Im noooooooo good at ....Im currently with Arise right now...they have some great opportunities for customer service positions. Big companies ....they pay on time and it was a very very interesting Virtual classroom experience (my 1st time learning without being in a classroom setting) ...my only issue is the hours of the project im on ......they have been changed and now I just can't do any work ...:( .... i wish i could find something like that (I love talking on the phones and helping people) but that needs 24/7 operators ..so i can study ! :) Thanks for telling me about Zirtual

I am so happy that somebody wrote about this. I was very curious to all the details. I know they do provide some information but I did not know if it was worth it. I am looking for something flexible since my son likes to change his schedule on me. Right now he is sick and honestly, any chance I get to sleep, I take it because he has not been sleeping. Thank you for providing the information I really needed!

I have never heard of this site before, but it looks a bit promising. I have never tried working as personal virtual assistant yet because the job sounds kind of demanding, and I like working at my own pace. However, I think I'll consider signing up for this one.

Training was very demanding. If you have some type of experience as an assistant you will probably breeze through. If not, it might be tough.

Looks like being an employee again but from home. I think it will require the applicants to render a few hours of their time to work on a project is that it? Is this opportunity still good to look into?

I have heard of this website but never heard opinion on it until now. I am not sure how I feel. It looks interesting but the comment on the low pay makes me wonder how bad it is per hour.

Just wondering, Is this similar to fancy hands?  How much can you realistically make?
