    I have been working at 3Play Media full-time (More than a year)


    So many great things about this company aside from the obvious of being a work from anywhere position. Incredibly efficient software which is easy to learn, really comprehensive guidelines/standards which are easily accessible. Great communication from staff if needed, but overall they are pretty chill and not at all nitpicky or micromanagey.. Jobs/content to select from is pretty varied and interesting, a lot of college lectures, but also captions for shows/movies/news/sports. Most of all their pay is pretty great for a transcription company, especially compared to others out there. Love this company!


    None. Honestly cannot think of one con for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Love your company! Feel very lucky to have found it!

    Transcriptionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at 3Play Media (Irvine, CA) in August 2016.


    The interview was a form online and a video transcription test. There was no in person interaction with any managers or employment supervisors. Overall it was very convenient, and very fitting for a work from home job that is high in demand for people looking to supplement their income. However, they do not give their requirements in strict detail, and allow anyone and everyone to apply without letting people know whether or not they are actually in demand for transcriptionists.
