    I worked at VoiceLog for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy work with time in between to complete other tasks.

    Cons

    You probably have a pretty high chance of getting a contract with voice log if your resume is grammatically correct, and you have a pulse. However, I only recommend taking a contract from them as a stepping stone to a better contract with a better company. If you are looking into becoming a work at home employee (vs contractor), don’t even bother. First of all, its 2 days of training that costs the company nothing. which is fine. You're an independent contractor, that’s common and nothing to complain about. You will need a landline phone. Be aware you have to work at least 5 hours to cover the cost of the phone bill. The job pays 8.50. That’s fine too, it is a mind-numbingly easy job, and they can find anyone to do it. No trouble, several minutes between calls to complete other tasks (I folded laundry, worked on my writing and more). The first couple of weeks, you are able to schedule a really decent amount of hours. (I think all but 1 or two of the ratings above 1 star are people who have been there less than a month) That’s when this job stops being even slightly beneficial to your life in any way. The problem with Voice log is they can find absolutely anyone who is literate to do this job. It costs nothing to train and everyone trying to break into working from home is sending out resumes to so many places, it's nice to get a response. They're hiring pool is virtually unlimited. They have different scheduling blocks depending on tenure, and the more tenured agents get access to more hours. After being there for three months, there were times when I only found one to two hours to work. For the whole week. The maximum would probably be about 8. It's completely impractical to work for them. They probably have a turnover of two to three months and then they just train more agents for free. You're never going to get anywhere, This is almost a complete waste of your time. However, if you understand all of these things, go ahead and take a job with them. Use them the way they use everyone else and learn what you can about working from home. The equipment that you need, if you enjoy it.. Get your feet wet. You will have plenty of time to plan and find another job while you work for this one, trust me. You now have work at home experience. I love the job I have now. When you have found anything besides this company, just stop scheduling your 5 hours a week. If you’ve sent out a lot of resumes, keep in mind that some companies can take 8 weeks or more to reply. When they do, stop working here. I wouldn't bother with an email, it might be demoralizing for some people. They will probably be cold, and it's because they don't have to care, that is part of their business model. It's nothing personal. They know that they're a joke, you need to know it too.

    Pros

    Training is sufficient. Although unpaid, if you are serious about the job it isn't a problem. Right now there are a lot of extra hours and a good choice of hours ranging from morning to no later than 8pm CST. Many outlets for communication and immediate response to questions or concerns. No issues or concerns with paycheck or worked hours. During the firs month they chose your schedule, afterwards you chose your schedule and you can pick extra hours if they are available. Right now there has been a lot of available hours.

    Cons

    None that I can think of right now.
