A. All wages and bonuses are paid on our master contract from our client. You will receive your contract rate, which will be paid hourly or may be paid “per call minute” serviced (based on the client you service) less our staffing fee of $ 12.50 per week. In addition, our clients charge KahlCenter LLC a service fee per virtual office agent. All service fees will deducted from your direct deposit payroll.
Below is an example of a typical pay check.
Hourly rate $12.00 per hour
Weekly hours worked 40
Total hours worked per period 80
Gross agent earnings due ($15.50 x 80 hours) $960.00
Gross earnings less the$ 25.00 agent staffing fee $935.00
Net pay check (less $19.95 client service fee) $915.05
Total monthly income (2 x $915.05) will be $1830.10*
In this example your Annual Income would be $21961.00. if you add in the cost of commuting in your vehicle. Gas and maintenance (annual estimated cost of $6,512.00), lunches @ $5 per day = $1,300.00 annual; this does not include Starbucks, which could add another $5 per day! That alone would be $9,112.00 per year never mind the cost of daycare which could add anywhere from $8000-10,000 per year.
Offset 100% of your service and staffing fees, by referring Virtual Call Center Agents. All agents are paid on a 1099, so no taxes are deducted.
YOU decide how many hours you spend servicing client inbound calls. If you have a full-time job and can only work a few hours in the evening or on the weekends that’s fine.
