I worked at Accentus as a contractor
flexible hours, ability to work from home
Low salary, not a lot of potential for growth
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Accentus in July 2014.
I applied online and received an email back within two hours asking for a phone interview. I had the phone interview two days later and it was pretty basic. Questions about previous experience and skills, whether I was good with accents, what my home office environment consists of etc. He explained the independent contractor piece, pay rates, minimum targets etc. Then he advised that he would send an email with a link to the testing and the computer requirements for the job. The test consists of 100 multiple choice questions about medical terminology and grammar. If you get 85% on this test you will have the opportunity to complete the transcription test which consists of four dictations. The first one was on the more difficult side and the other three were fairly easy. I completed the test on the weekend and he emailed me Monday to ask when he could call to give me the good news. When he called he gave me my marks on the tests and offered me a contract.
There is no opportunity for negotiation. You can take or leave the offer.
