Are you a MilSpouse Looking for a Flexible Job?


We live in an exciting time to be a milspouse. Even five years ago, work from home jobs seemed sketchy and often were scams that fleeced the unlucky people who tried them on for size. Now, work from home positions are plentiful and offered by legitimate companies and organizations. As military spouses, we finally have a way to start and keep a career or a job. It means more financial stability for our families, a new-found sense of self-worth for ourselves, and the ability to positively contribute with our skills and abilities.

There are many possibilities for work from home jobs– you just need to know yourself and know where to look.

Would I excel at a work from home job?

It’s a basic question, but an important one. If you know that you can get up every day, organize your own time and get things done well and on-time, you are a perfect fit for this kind of work modality. If you know you’ll never get out of bed– much less take a shower and put on pants– you need more structure and a work from home job might not be for you.

How much time do I have?

This is especially important if you’re looking for a part-time position. Know how much time you can allot to the job and what time constraints you do have. While it might limit your initial job search, its better to find a job that fits your lifestyle than feeling like you can’t deliver on what you promised.

How flexible is this job?

Military spouses often shoulder extra familial responsibilities when their spouses are deployed, training, or otherwise away. Can you create your own schedule or are the times you must work more rigid?

How legit is this organization?

Even though there are a cornucopia of options for legitimate work from home jobs, there are also still some sleazy individuals who are just trying to make a buck… off of you. Do your research and know if the opportunities you’re looking at are backed by upstanding businesses/organizations. If a work from home opportunity comes up that requires money up front, it’s a scam. If the organization doesn’t want you to sign a contract, beware. If you’re never given tax forms to fill out and are expected to accept the money “under the table,” watch out. Trust your gut if things seem shady.

Is this job military-friendly?

It’s a worry that keeps many military spouses from answering that hated interview question, “So, what brought you here?” Generally speaking, work from home jobs are more understanding of family circumstances because they can be done from anywhere at virtually any time. Still,  you’ll want to know– even just for your own peace of mind– if your employer understands (or at least can work with) the challenges that being a military family entails.

    1. Is this job only for spouses of military active duties? What about for a retired person who had been a First Sergeant with an excellent service skills and has all the requirements the position request?

      Thanks in advance for reading this email.

    1. Hello Erica,

      That is funny that you mentioned that. Our client asked if that was a bit misleading and I said that I thought it didn’t matter much. She was right! I will fix the post right now. The job is flexible but does require some travel.

      Sorry about that!

    1. Hey Kara,

      Thank you for your interest,

  1. You cannot employ someone with a condition of base access. A military ID card holder would also need to get base access through security channels and cannot profit from their military ID card. Shame on this company.

      1. What she is saying is we can not use our base access to do work on base unless the company has approval from base to conduct business. Do these companies have legal permission?

        1. Hey Missy,

          Got it. Oh yes, they have legal permission to work on base for sure :).

          Thank you for the clarification,
          Danya

    1. Hello Sheila,

      Please direct your question to mailto:militaryadvocate@centraworld.com.

      Thank you,

  2. So who is the “crew members” and wouldwe have to pay out of our own pocket to purchase “food and drinks” for them and will they be coming to my home ? Iam confused about that.

    1. Hello Opal,

      The crew members would be the packers and movers of the moving team. No, you would not have to pay out of your own pocket for food and drinks. They won’t be coming to your home. They will be coming to the home of the family in which they are moving.

      Thank you for the questions.

      Let us know if you need any more guidance,
      Danya

  3. What is the name of the company? I see information about the position, but I don’t even know who I am addressing!

    1. Hi Sara,

      Due to the nature of the position, the company would prefer to first screen applicants and then disclose their identity to candidates for the position. The company is a well-established, multi-million-dollar leader in its industry. They have been in business for almost 100 years.

      I hope this helps answer your question.

      Have a great day,
      Danya
