All about SiteStaff:
I am always a bit un-trusting of any of these Chat Based jobs as it seems every time I have found one in the past, I get excited knowing how many of you readers are looking for chat-based work. Then, I am sourly disappointed by the lack of pay or legitimacy of the company. So I took a close look at SiteStaff.
SiteStaff’s website was just created in May of 2011- or rather the domain name was purchased. This means the website is less than a year old. This is a caution sign. The company may not be established. So the next step is to look for the history of the company. The website is owned by a man named Corbin Grimes. Further research tells me he works with small start up companies to help them succeed. !Good sign! SiteStaff has invested far enough into their business to hire someone who knows what they are doing.
Should the fact SiteStaff is a new company cause for concern?

Yes and no. Depends on your needs.
If you need a work at home job you can depend on, then don’t get involved with a start up company.
If you enjoy the excitement of being a part of something from the ground up, flexible to deal with the many many changes that will occur as the company finds their groove and will be fine if the job is lost or there is lack of work- then go for it!
Another name that came up when researching SiteStaff was Kirby Hinton. Mr. Hinton appears to be the owner of SiteStaff and he too holds an extensive and credible history that can easily be found online.
Another good sign!
While I cannot determine whether or not this site is a waste of time or not, I can say “so far so good”. It is always a struggle to review a work at home job when they are new and no one has yet to spread word around the web of their experience.
Does SiteStaff have any Work if they are so New?
SiteStaff must have clients because they are hiring Chat hosts. They also claim to be currently servicing “companies such as chiropractors, dentists, tanning salons, financial planning firms, day spas, etc” .
What exactly do Chat Hosts for SiteStaff do?
SiteStaff’s recent job ad says chat hosts will be responsible for “chatting with and informing (customers) about products and services the business offers”. It is safe to assume that each client SiteStaff works with will have different needs. So therefore, the work will vary depending on the project. Some clients may need you to work virtually via chat to set appointments or answer basic questions about the company and their products or services.
