You don't have to be a "genius" to provide friendly customer service to frazzled iPhone and iPad users. As part of its AppleCare warrantee system, California-based tech giant Apple is hiring At-Home Advisors to answer customer service calls from home using a complimentary iMac!

The hugely popular tech company is looking for folks with at least two years of professional troubleshooting experience, but not exclusively with Apple products. After a five-week online training course, you'll be ready to set up your home office and start fielding customer service calls using VOIP [source: Apple].

At-Home Advisors are considered Apple corporate employees and qualify for "competitive pay" and benefits. Job search site Glassdoor lists the starting hourly wage at $15 an hour or slightly less than $30,000 a year. The ideal applicant must be able to work around a flexible schedule starting as early as 7 a.m. CST to as late as 10:30 p.m. CST [source: Apple]. (And the lady in the company's website ad looks like she's wearing her jammies – or at least, some "loungewear").
