Pros and Cons of Home Assembly Jobs

If you’re reading this then you probably have a decent idea of how home assembly jobs work. Now it’s time to decide if this is the right kind of opportunity for you. In this article we will look at some of the pros and cons of home assembly jobs. Hopefully this will give you a little extra information to think on.

It’s probably more beneficial to start with the cons. Why, you might wonder? Because if we start with the cons, then the pros will help them not look so bad. Odd psychology, huh?

Con Number One: Start Up Fees.

Truth be told, this can be very expensive, especially if you’re planning on earning a full time income off of your home assembly efforts. In order to keep a steady stream of income flowing you will have to be willing to invest some serious money in materials. Between the test kit, shipping and handling, and your first order of materials, just getting started can run well over $100. Remember, that’s just getting started, that doesn’t include the investment it will take to keep the ball consistently rolling.

Con Number Two: Passing Inspection

This is the hardest step of the process, and the step that you hear most budding home assemblers complain about. Those quality control sheets are not to be taken lightly. Imagine spending all day cleaning a house until you think it’s spotless, then someone comes to inspect the house, runs their finger over the top of the doorway and brings down a fingertip covered in dust. For most home assembly companies, something as minute as having a wire twisted one too many times, as unnoticeable as it might be, can get your item shipped back to you. This is a business you’re dealing with, and sometimes their quality standards can be almost unreal.

Con Number Three: The Waiting Game

You purchase a test kit from the company; you wait for them to ship it to you. You receive the test kit, assemble it, then send it back; you wait for the company to receive it. The company receives the kit from you and approves it (hopefully). You order your first shipment of materials; you wait for them to arrive in the main. You assemble your products and send them back; you wait for the company to inspect them. The company inspects and approves them and then you wait to get paid. Notice a pattern?

Now that we have gone through some of the cons, let’s check out a few pros, shed some light on the doubt that I’m sure is now creeping into your mind. Here are a few things that you should consider before making your decision.

Pro Number One: Staying Home.

Who doesn’t love the idea of working in their pajamas? Imagine a day where you roll out of bed, grab your coffee, sit down with your project in front of the television, and get to work. Few other jobs offer this kind of luxury.

Pro Number Two: Work When You Want.

Very few home assembly jobs have a time limit on when the projects need to be finished. Usually, you sign up for one and work at your own leisure. Say you want to work full time this week but only part time next week or perhaps you’re a college student and can only put in a few hours between classes. You can work at your own leisure without having to worry about getting fired or having your hours cut. Which leads into pro number three. . .

Pro Number Three: Be Your Own Boss.

By being a home assembly worker, you’re able to set your own schedule and decide how much work you do. You will never have a boss cracking the whip on your back whenever you decide to slack off. You can take days off whenever you want, go on vacation whenever you want, have as many sick days as you want, and slack off as much as you want. How great is that?

Well, there you have it folks, the pros and cons of home assembly jobs. Of course, you can always expand this list, but I thought I would provide you with a few basics to work with.
