    I worked at Net Transcripts as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    This truly is a job that you can fit into whatever time frame you want, whether you're one of those early morning people, or a late owl, or have holes in your schedule throughout the week. I did transcribing in their Law Enforcement division and found much of the work rather fascinating. I also found the support staff to be truly supportive and quick to respond to questions.

    Cons

    It may not be the best paying job around, but you can make some decent money if you are a fast typist, an organized person, and have a good ear for the nuances of various accents. There is, of course, a training period and I began to wonder if I was ever going to get "real" assignments. But those came soon enough!

    Advice to Management

    Just keep recruiting. There are many people who will find this the perfect opportunity for them.

    I worked at Net Transcripts as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed working with everyone at this company. I was able to select the jobs that I wanted based on the time that I had available and was able to do this from the comfort of my home.

    Cons

    The amount of work has its ups and downs, but that is no fault of the company's. Companies release results to be transcribed quarterly and that is when the bulk of the work occurs.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember that your contractors have lives and unfortunately things can happen. I had been working as a contractor for you for over 12 years and when one of those unfortunate life events happened I was not contacted about when or if I would return. Instead I was sent a very stiff email from HR. Come on guys, you are better than that and I know you are. Don't let growth change you.

    I worked at Net Transcripts as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule if you are wanting to stay at home. That is the only advantage to working for the company.

    Cons

    Unless you want to be on the computer all day waiting for work you will never have any. There are too many employees and too little work.

    Advice to Management

    Staff more appropriately so the people that you do have working for you will actually get work.

    I have been working at Net Transcripts as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with Net Transcripts since 2012. It is the perfect job for any at-home transcriptionist who does corporate, government, and other such types of transcription. There is no pressure and no minimum requirements for work. There is no need to alert them if you are taking a day off, although out of courtesy I let them know if it's going to be a week or more. You can work whenever you wish, night or day, as long as you turn in your work by the required deadline. I cannot say enough about how good the staff is to work with. They are always helpful and friendly and quick to respond to phone calls and emails. They are understanding of poor recording quality of audio files and any accents that are difficult to understand. I also broke my wrist in 2014, and they were completely helpful in letting me get back to work after the required time the doctor said I needed to heal. The pay is comparable to other transcription companies and is completely fair. I will stick with Net Transcripts for as long as I can!

    Cons

    You are considered a subcontractor, so there are no benefits. There is also no PTO or holiday pay as you are paid for the work you do. However, this is typical of most subcontractor transcription jobs, so I don't have a problem with it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing--you are a great company to work for!
