Red Butler VA Job Requirements

red butler va jobs reviewRed Butler does have some requirements that’ll need to be met before applying. First you’ll need a laptop or computer that has high speed internet access. There are special programs that you’ll need if you have a special skill such as graphic design, but most likely you already have these programs if it’s a specialty of yours.

They do require at least 3 years of experience in the industry. This can be freelance or a job with a similar company. You’ll need at least a 4 year college agree to apply.

Additional requirements include excellent verbal and written communication skills, internet research skills, team player, can do attitude, detailed oriented, and very organized. Having foreign language capabilities is a plus.

Red Butler VA Application Process

Red Butler has an application that you can fill out on their website at anytime. This application includes basic personal information, how much you’d like to work, past work experience, an assessment of the skills you have, and a resume you’ll attach.

If they’re interested, they’ll contact you shortly after with additional information. From what I can see they’ll set up an interview with you and you’ll have to pass a few skills tests just to make sure you’re ready for the job.

If accepted they’ll assign a client for you to work with.

Typical VA Work At Red Butler

Once you’re accepted you’ll be assigned a client, or be placed on a team that works with larger clients. Either way you’re able to choose how much you work as long as it’s agreed upon by the client.

Like most VA jobs there’s a wide variety of tasks you may be asked to complete. This could be over the phone customer service, scheduling appointments, internet research, and some specialty work like writing blog posts, graphic design, and website building.

It really all depends on your skills and what the client is needing. I wish I could tell you exactly what you’ll be doing as a VA, but it usually differs day to day, which is why a lot of VAs enjoy the work.

How Much Does Red Butler VA Pay?

Like most VA jobs rate of pay is based on how much prior experience you have. I found that most Red Butler VA start out around $12-$15 an hour. For some specialty work like graphic design rates may be higher.

It doesn’t seem like there’s much room for promotion other than getting paid a higher rate once you’ve been with the company and clients are very happy with your work.

It looks like Red Butler pays by PayPal once a month. Update 4/29: A reader left a comment stating that Red Butler now pays via Direct Deposit. You’ll be hired as an independent contractor so if you make more than $600 you’ll have to report your income come tax time.

Red Butler VA Typical Schedule

This is going to depend on what client you get matched up with, but when you apply you can choose full or a part time position. From the forums it seems that most members are working somewhere in between 10-30 hours a week.

It does say even if you apply for a full time position there’s no guarantee you’ll get 30 plus hours each week. It really all depends on the clients needs.

I will say that this job can be a full or part time job, and Red Butler tries to meet your needs, depending on what you’re looking for.

Is Red Butler VA  A Scam?

I can’t find a ton of information with feedback from current or past workers, but from what I can see most VAs are very happy with the work at Red Butler. They do require some experience, but if you have experience you should have no problem getting hired.

It looks like they’ll work with you on the hours and try to meet your needs as best as possible. Pay rate is pretty close to industry standard, so most people are pretty happy. It seems that most VAs are interested in sites like Red Butler because it does give you consistent work, which can be an issue when freelancing. I’d say Red Butler is a good site to apply to if you’re looking for steady virtual assistant work.

  1. Hi!
    This is an interesting company that does pay and is not a scam as far as I can see either.
    It is a good source for part time work, as 15 bucks an hour makes this a good catch for many.
    Thanks for the review, I found it interesting and a good choice to cover.
    Do you have any info on how they pay out?


    • Hey Shawn,

      Unfortunately I could not find any information on how they pay. Seems like most of the industry pays twice a month. Most pay with Direct Deposit and I’ve seen a few with PayPal.

      Most hire you as an independent contractor, so if you make $600 or more you’re responsible for taxes.

      If anyone has exact details on this PLEASE SHARE!


      • After much prodding by their freelancers/VAs, Red Butler finally instituted direct deposit late last year. Prior to that, they were paying via printed and mailed checks.

  2. Red Butler VA sounds very interesting, but starting around 12 dollars an hour with a 4 year degree seems kinda sad 🙁
    I don’t have a degree so I don’t figure I’d be eligible but a job like this sounds like it would have a lot of interesting components, working from home on the internet sounds pretty awesome.
    Thanks for the info I wasn’t aware that there were places like this and it may be something to check out if I could find one that didn’t require a 4 year degree.

    • Hey Sheena,

      Thanks for reading, one thing I’ll say is that some WAH companies put down their perfect candidate and will accept less requirements, but I’m not forsure Red Butler is one of those. I will say they can be pretty selective so probably not.

      Most VA jobs do require some experience, but you can see a full list of VA jobs I recommend here. There’s a few that require little to no experience and a lot that don’t require a 4 year degree!

      Hope this helps,


  3. Hello Brok,
    I found your article on Red Butler VA jobs to be very interesting and informative. You laid out the different aspects of qualifications, applying, and typical work very nicely. I thought you did a great job researching the company and the fact that you even gave a ballpark figure for salary was pretty cool too.

    • Hey Rick,

      Thanks for the kind words on my Red Butler job review. I try my best to lay all the important information out so it’s easy to find and try to give an accurate figure on what you can make working for this company.

      Glad you enjoyed and come back soon,
