There appears to be some real, credible, legitimite work at home assembly jobs. Let me say that again. There appears to be real, credible, legitimate companies that offer real, credible, legitimate work at home jobs. Without a doubt, FOR SURE, there are many SCAMs associated with this type of work at home job.
When doing the research for this article, it became clear real fast that assembly work is not for everyone. Many of the legitimate companies will not answer your application or will not get back to you right away. Many of the legitimate companies have high standards with the products that you assemble. It is very likely that some of your first products that you assemble will be rejected by the company. That does not necessarily mean that the company is a scam. It just means that they have specific expectations. However, some scams will reject all of your assembled work. It is probable that the pay will be very low as it may take you a long time to complete assembly of individual products. Some people get faster over time and, therefore, receive more money. There are some legitimate start-up costs for you depending on the specific legitimate company. This start-up cost contributes to the confusion in trying to determine which companies are legitimate and which are scams.
Please keep in mind that where work at home assembly jobs are a good fit for some people, these type of jobs are not for everyone.
I am supplying just a short list of reported legitimate work at home assembly companies along with links that will take you to comments. I readily admit that some MIGHT NOT be legitimate. However, for some of these home jobs there is enough literature available that makes me think that they are legitimate. Please remember that there seems to be negative and positive comments about each of the following companies. ONLY YOU can determine if the job is legitimate and right for YOU. Farther down this page will be links to a couple more websites that will present their own list of work at home assembly companies with accompanying comments for some of those jobs.
New England Crafters, also known as Magical Gift Company.
38 Main Street
Torrington, CT 06790
This company is kind of well-known in the field of work at home assembly jobs. There is enough literature on this company that makes me feel that it is a legitimate company. HOWEVER, there are enough negative and positive comments about the assembly jobs that YOU will want to ask your own questions.

Sharon Davis writes a great blog giving her opinion of her Disciples Cross experience. The article is located at http://www.2work-at-home.com/WAHReporter/7-06.shtml. Again, this is a very good and typical article about legitimate work at home jobs such as assembly, surveys, or data entry. They may be legitimate jobs, but many people will have some real concerns about the jobs.
There is enough literature on Disciples Cross to make me believe that this is a legitimate company that provides work at home assembly jobs. However, you can see by Sharon's article that the work is not for everyone.
TR's Decorative Lids

Creative Wood Works

Make wooden pull-toys for toddlers. Pieces need to be Cut, Sanded, Painted and Assembled.
My Mommy's Home is a website that will list "Assembly / Craft Jobs" as well as other work at home jobs. I CANNOT speak to the legitimacy of the jobs but you are welcome to investigate to see if any of the jobs are legitimate and right for you.
Home-Biz-Moms.com will list "Craft Assembly Work at Home Jobs." Again, I do not know how many of these are legitimate but it is a list and you can investigate on your own.
There are a lot of books and information "out there" about work at home jobs. The goal of this website is to cut through as much of the tremendous amount of information and provide you with some credible, basic information about work from home jobs. The following three books are some of the best that I reviewed that give very good, credible, relevant information about work at home jobs for anyone who is SERIOUS about trying to find a work at home job. There are other books available, but in my opinion, these three books are worth the money. Each link will take you to Amazon where you can find more reviews for each book. Like most information about work at home jobs, it is up to YOU to determine if the companies listed in these books are legitimate. However, the authors tried to present the most credible, legitimate information that they could find.
Will Work From Home: Earn the Cash without the Commute: is co-authored by well-respected and well-known Tory Johnson who has appeared a number of places such as Good Morning America. This book, as well as the other books listed, will give general, standard information about working at home. I am talking about providing information about the pros and cons of working at home such as a need for self-discipline, personal rewards, and all kinds of things like this. Where this book, and the others listed here, really stand out is the attention to detail on specific work at home jobs such as virtual assistant, customer service representative, mystery shopper, transcription, and more. You get just enough information about these specific jobs as well as a list of companies that you can contact for employment. Personally, I would liked to have seen more information given per specific career and more companies listed, BUT there is enough information here to justify purchasing the book, especially now that I see that Amazon has reduced the price MORE.
The Work at Home Success Bible: A complete guide for women; start your own business; balance work and home life; develop telecommuting strategies: according to the title sounds like so many other work at home job books that will give you a lot of general information and skip the needed specifics. HOWEVER, do NOT be fooled by the long title. This is a very, very good book that gives the standard general information BUT a lot of relevant, helpful information about specific work at home jobs. I really like this book because early on, it states the philosophy of the book which is to provide information about what the author feels are realistic work at home jobs such as customer service representatives, transcriptionists and more. The author tries to stay away from questionable jobs that are associated with scams and are known to provide very little pay, such as data entry and assembly jobs. This book is NOT just for women. This book will provide information about specific home jobs and a number of legitimate companies that supply the work at home jobs. Like I mentioned about the book above, I would like to see more information about specific jobs and companies, BUT maybe I ask for too much. There is very good information within this book for anyone who is serious about finding credible, legitimate, decent-paying work from home jobs.
Work at Home Now: The No-Nonsense Guide to Finding your Perfect Home-based Job, Avoiding Scams and Making a Great Living:
Christine Durst and Michael Haaren created and maintains the well-respected Rat Race Rebellion website about work at home jobs. Both authors can be considered experts in the work at home job field. This is a very good book. I am not crazy about some of the title that includes the words "making a great living" because so many legitimate work at home jobs do not pay the best. After doing a lot of research on work at home jobs and seeing A LOT of scams, the words "making a great living" looks a little scamish. HOWEVER, this is a very, very good book. This is NOT a scam book at all. This book differs a little than the others because this book concentrates more on techniques and strategies to FIND work at home jobs.
