To learn more about this unique opportunity and how you can apply online will be discussed in this article.
About the Company
Gaggle is a company founded by Jeff Patterson who created a system that filters messages and allows controls and access to teachers and administrators for the purpose of giving teachers an easy method to watch over and protect students from harm. Many students today have access to school-provided technology which also leaves them vulnerable to serious dangers that may go hidden from staff, parents, and others. This is where Gaggle comes in, to provide a safe environment for students that attend K-12 schools.
Gaggle’s mission is to save student’s lives and prevent tragedy for students, their families, and loved ones.
How will I keep kids safe?
Gaggle has already created the system but they need people to help make it work. Gaggle regularly hires what they call an Operations Representative to work out of their home office to review and analyze online student activity. In Fact, Gaggle has uncovered more than 1,500 student incidents in Montana schools alone.
What are my job duties?
Working from home for Gaggle as an Operations Rep will require that you review and analyze the online activity of all students. This is needed to identify potentially inappropriate content within the school communication system. Inappropriate content may involve uncovering drug abuse, bullying, threats of violence, suicide attempts, self-harm situations, and domestic abuse.
If you discover a threat to the student’s well-being, you will notify the designated contacts at school. In addition to this, you will be responsible for fielding calls and emails from customers about student incidents, maintain and record concise notes, investigate and troubleshoot customer inquiries, and other related duties.
What are the requirements to work from Gaggle?
Due to the nature of this job, you will need to have extreme focus and dedication to make quick and accurate decisions. Gaggle is looking for remote workers who have a passion for reading with good reading comprehension to review content. You must have experience using desktop and web-based applications, experience in education, crisis management, child advocacy, customer service, or a related field. They are also seeking candidates that can learn fast and work hard.
All applicants will need the following in their home office:
- High-speed internet
- Private dedicated workspace.
Please keep in mind that this is a repetitive job that will require you to view content of a sensitive nature that may include photos.
How many hours will I work?
This is a full-time work from home job that will require you to work for up to 10 hours a day including weekends, afternoons, evenings, or overnight. This will require you to look at a computer screen to read material sitting for long periods of time. One benefit about the hours that were not included in the job description is that you can make your own schedule.
How much will I earn?
The pay is undisclosed on Gaggle’s official job description but it does state that it is competitive depending upon the candidate’s level of experience. According to Glassdoor.com, applicants can expect to earn $10 per hour to start.
In addition to the pay, you will receive benefits including medical, dental, vision, employee assistance program, 401K, and even counseling services with a licensed therapist on a monthly basis.
Who should apply?
I recommend anyone looking for an entry-level work at home job that doesn’t mind reading and wants to work their own schedule to apply. This is one of the easier work at home jobs that has plenty of work available during the school year. Because this particular job is in great demand, I would encourage those who are looking for full-time hours, to apply as well.
