What Do Remote Agents Do at Oasis Marketing Solutions?
Using the Oasis Marketing Solution’s Five9 telephone system, you would be making/receiving inbound and outbound calls. The good news is you don’t even need a landline phone to work there, since you will be calling through your PC or laptop. You will, however, need to supply your own USB headset and mic.
Oasis prides itself on being able to match the needs of the client to just the right remote calling agent. Most of the remote agents either do outbound political calling or work on a core project using other administrative skills.
What Are the Equipment/Computer Requirements?
You will need:
- an updated PC or laptop with high-speed Internet.
- anti-virus and anti-malware software installed.
- a USB headset and mic.
- a quiet office space with minimal distractions
What Are the Other Qualifications Will You Need to Be Considered?
Besides the equipment/computer requirements mentioned above, you will need:
- an excellent phone manner.
- sales experience and a proven track record.
- a commitment to a 15 to 20-hour workweek.
What Are the Workday and Schedules Like at Oasis Marketing Solutions?
As an agent, you will be emailed the available shifts. Most shifts are 4 to 5 hours long and you will need to grab them as available and sign up.
Hours are generally “office hours” in the time zone you are working, which can work out to 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. if you are on the East Coast of the United States. This company only hires in the United States due in part to the political nature of the work.

What is the Pay Like and When is Pay Day?
Payment is between $9 to $10 an hour depending upon whether you are working the political surveys or a core project. Payment is once a week via PayPal. So you will need a PayPal account if you don’t already have one set up.
