Start the new year off with a new job.
Wyndham Vacation Ownership — which operates over 200 vacation resorts in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, South America and the South Pacific — is hiring full-time work-from-home customer service representatives.

Work for Wyndham
As a remote customer service rep for Wyndham Vacation Ownership, you’ll be answering calls from existing clients looking to book their next stay at a resort.
You won’t be making sales — instead, you’ll be informing callers about the different properties and amenities. You’ll also be making recommendations about how they could spend their vacations.
After that, customer service representatives are free to work from home. (And the company provides the needed equipment.)
The Missouri-based job posting specifies workers must live within one hour of the Springfield call center, even after training. Training for those Missouri positions starts January 8.
How to Nab These Jobs
Wyndham Vacation Ownership is looking for customer service reps who have:
- At least six months of customer service or sales experience
- A high school diploma or GED
- Good customer service and communications skills
- Basic computer knowledge
You must be able to multi-task and work under pressure, and you may be required to work evenings, weekends and some holidays.
You’ll also need to have a quiet workspace at home with high-speed internet.
Now About Those Benefits
We’ve saved the best part for last. Having a full-time work-from-home job is great, but the benefits make these opportunities even better.
The company offers medical, dental and vision insurance after 30 days on the job, plus a 401(k) match up to 6%.
There are advancement opportunities, tuition reimbursement and paid vacation, holiday and sick time.
And after spending your days talking about other people’s awesome vacations, you can enjoy the benefit of travel-related discounts to Wyndham’s resorts and hotels.
