I know locally the position is work from home, 20 hrs per week and I know the pay.....I'm more interested in how hard the calls are and is it possible to do with a 6 yr old, 3.5 yr old and 1 yr old at home (although most times I could fit around DHs schedule). Also can it be weekend work?
I was a PC for a year and I loved it (though it had it's rough moments of dealing with uneducated crazy women who that BFing was perverted, but that's another thread!). Most of the time you just call and find out if they are BFing or planning to BF, ask if they have any questions or concerns about BFing, let them know about the WIC classes, and solve any issues that they might have (or refer them to a LC if its a big deal).
I'd love to work as a PC again if I could find a WAHM position! As for your kids, maybe have a movie time in another room while you make calls?
