I know for those of us who've worked outside the home, we have to dress up & face people everyday. That's the point of WAH jobs though...to be in your PJs, not have to dress up, wear make-up, or have your hair always perfect.
Honestly, when a job posting mentions anything about webcams, it just turns me off. I have gone on a couple of webcam interviews, which I don't prefer, but depending on the job & I still want to apply, then as long as the work duties on a regular basis don't require it, I guess it's OK.
How much do webcams bother & discourage you from applying to WAH jobs?
It discourages me, a lot. I've passed up on some really nice positions because the webcam portion of the interview process gives me great anxiety. I know that it's silly, and something that I need to get over--but it's hard for me!
When I first started working from home many years ago, I was always disappointed in the pay grade. Every company that I asked was very clear that "no work clothes" and "more time" due to working in pajamas was part of the rationales behind the lower wage.
So, if I'm going to be on webcam, I want the wage difference. But I haven't found any that offer more.
It bothered me at first. My company uses them for video interviews, training, and team meetings. Generally, they are announced so I don't have to be presentable every day. However, if there is an emergency meeting on the fly, I have a jacket that I just wear over whatever I happen to have on. Further, it also makes me get up and get ready every day. Working from home can get you down and if you don't take care of yourself, it is not a good thing.
Webcam interviews are pretty important. I do first pass interviews for one of my clients, and I would love to be able to make those video calls some times. I've interviewed hundreds of people, and sometimes what I hear on the phone may not be who they actually are. Once, eons and eons ago (long before most people had webcams!), I worked for a major corporation. They hired someone based solely on a phone interview. When he arrived, they discovered it wasn't him on the phone interview - because he spoke little to no English!
So, I understand why it's important for companies to see who you are. But, in regards to working from home, don't spend all day in your jammies. It's really not good for working. I wrote a blog last year about things you need to be doing when you work from home, and getting dressed was part of it.

figi4: I was hired as an SME @ LB 2 weeks ago and completed all the paperwork, etc. I've been waiting for approval to start and just got an email last night that they put me on the wait list. I was really excited to get started on a new project.

verikarobinson: Forgive me if I'm doing this wrong but this whole discussion thing is not user friendly. I'm a business owner. Am I allowed to talk about what I do to work from home?
Sept 9, 2019 4:11:26 GMT
Muldowney: Hi, verikarobinson. You may talk about what you do from home if it's a job, such as customer service or rating. If it's an opportunity, like MLM or Get Paid to Click, no, we don't allow "opportunities." That's why I deleted your post.
