7 Montreal Jobs That Pay More Than Minimum Wage & Let You Work From Home

Turn your work-from-home dreams into reality.
7 Remote Jobs In Montreal That Pay More Than Minimum Wage

In this new world, expect remote jobs to transform life in Montreal. For previous generations, having a serious career meant waking up and commuting to a big grey office building. Your cubicle would be one amongst a sea of cubicles. The receptionist would ask whether you had a case of the Mondays. You'd receive obnoxious memos from your three managers.

The coffee would give you uncontrollable heart palpations and confusion. The copy machine would be on the fritz. It was all very much like Office Space, I'm sure.

But now, thanks to a dramatic shift in workplace culture, you can have an amazing career right from the comfort of your own home.  

For years, companies have been hiring more and more remote workers and the pandemic has certainly hastened things along. 

Working from home has its challenges, of course. Many people work better when they're sharing a physical space with others, motivating each other, and sharing ideas.  

But that hasn't stopped major companies like Twitter and Facebook from announcing that a lot of their staff will be working from home permanently even after the pandemic.  

And it's not hard to see why: Zoom and Slack meetings in your pyjamas. Commuting from your bedroom to your workplace in seconds. Not having to pack a lunch. Never having to engage in workplace drama. It all sounds fantastic.  

So, here are seven work-from-home jobs in Montreal that pay more than minimum wage.

Private Investigator  

Salary: $16 – $29 per hour

This company is looking for real, honest-to-God gumshoes to join the team.

Think about it. You could be an actual rule-flouting, femme fatale-investigating private eye! Just like Sam Spade or Harriet the Spy.

Qualifications for the job include five years of surveillance experience, a valid private investigator license, and "reliable high-quality modern surveillance equipment," so these people do not appear to be messing around.

The application says this is remote work, but it also says you need a "reliable, inconspicuous vehicle," so it's safe to assume you'll occasionally have to leave your home for this one — probably to do stakeouts in a trench coat and fancy hat.
