    I have been working at CapTel part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy entry-level job, pays well, relaxed dress code, easy to get time off if requested far enough in advance, 25 cent raise every 6 months if you don't get any policy violations, plentiful sick days, you can leave early if it is slow (but you aren't required to)

    Cons

    BORING!, not a good job if you need frequent bathroom breaks, expected to be at your desk for 95% of your shift (and you get a policy violation if you don't meet that requirement for ANY reason, including bathroom breaks), a lot of call content that you listen to and caption can be upsetting (racist, political, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating captionists as hamsters on wheels and allow more bathroom breaks!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CapTel (Orlando, FL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    You are let into the building and escorted to a room with a specific interviewer. They ask you to perform simple tests such as a spelling test, a typing test, and a speech test one after the other.
