FLEXIBLE HOURS

I don’t know about y’all, but anytime I want to check out a new restaurant or go to an event, my first instinct is to read the reviews.

Sure, sometimes online reviews can miss the mark, like this one-star review of Crater Lake National Park that acknowledged that the water was super blue but thought the cafeteria coffee was terrible.

But overall, I put a lot of faith in these online crusaders who take the time to tell me whether or not the new pizza place down the street has sauce that makes leaving the couch worth it.

Are you the person writing these reviews? Do you consider yourself an expert on all things social in your local community? Then Yelp wants to put your skills to work.

The company is currently looking for part-time, work-from-home Yelpers to fill community ambassador and online community specialist roles.

If you’re the kind of person who loves getting involved with your community and always has a good restaurant recommendation, keep reading to see if your city has an open position.

And if your city doesn’t have an open spot or this job isn’t really calling your name, don’t worry. Just check out our Jobs page on Facebook — we’re always posting interesting work-from-home jobs.
