    Current Employee - Contractor - Law Enforcement Transcriptionist in Auburndale, WI

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Net Transcripts for more than a year

    Pros

    Truly open scheduling - completely up to the contractor. I have never had a case where work was not available. Law enforcement transcription is extremely interesting, whereas I was very bored with medical transcription. Pay is good and from what I've found, fair in comparison with other similar employers. Personally I have loved being paid by minute of audio rather than other methods, such as per line, word,...

    Cons

    As in all companies that specialize in transcription, there are sometimes differences in the way that the general specs are interpreted. I don't always agree with some of the more "gray" areas of grammar or choices made by others. This is always the case, however, in every transcription job I've ever had. I've been in QA in medical and know also that the QA is going to "hear differently" than the transcriptionist. It's...

    Advice to Management

    So far, I've had great experiences for the most part, and the few times I've been unhappy, I have felt that management has been extremely responsive and fair to my questions or complaints. I cannot really imagine anything that I'd suggest other than perhaps some type of compensation change, something that rewards contractors in raised rates and/or possible real employment status.

    I have been working at Net Transcripts for more than a year

    Pros

    You pick your orders and deadlines. Pay is decent depending how quickly you can type. It's paid per audio minute, although each minute can take some people a few minutes each to type. A 60 minute good quality audio takes me about two and a half to three hours which is about $18-15/hour. I see other reviews referring to fingerprint and background checks - but I did not have either. I'm assuming this is for their criminal...

    Cons

    My biggest issue is when orders are cancelled, especially when they are 'STAT' orders. This means you had picked up an order to be completed within an hour upon receiving. So say you had one for a day at around 11:30AM, it usually is late (meaning you wasted time waiting for it to come), or cancelled completely which I feel is unfair because I could have picked up other work during that time. When orders are cancelled,...

    Advice to Management

    Charge for orders cancelled within four hours of deadline so transcribers can pick up other work and don't miss out on valuable time and money.

    Pros

    Work from home. No set hours. Work as much or as little as you want. Staff is friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    No advancement (IC transcribers only). Work is not always available. Contract work with no benefits.

    I have been working at Net Transcripts for more than a year

    Pros

    You're in charge of your own schedule. You can pick as many or as little assignments as you want, as long as they're available to claim and you meet the deadlines. Work from anywhere but you should probably work from home so you can use a foot pedal. Decent option for stay at home moms, disabled people, students, etc

    Cons

    Pay is low. You're paid per minute of audio you transcribe. If you've never transcribed before, you have to know that it usually takes 4-5 minutes to transcribe 1 minute of audio. So a 30 minute order will take at least 2 hours. Based on the pay rate and speed most people will only make about $10 an hour. You can max out at about $15 an hour and that's only if you get the highest pay rate orders and you're fast....

    Advice to Management

    Boost the base pay rate and people will be more willing to claim orders. Add bonuses if the audio is bad or there's no speaker list. Give the audio a rating when it's in the queue so people know what to expect. Require clients to add speaker lists to orders so people don't have to waste so much time figuring out names. Stop spamming the entire list for stat orders -- if you want it done quick, do it yourself or add a...

    I have been working at Net Transcripts part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Can choose your own work and hours.

    Cons

    Pays under $1 per audio minute. I am a very experienced transcriptionist and type 90 wpm. However, these audios are difficult to transcribe and require doing extensive internet research to complete the documents, also there are specifications and formatting which take time to learn and apply in each document. A one-hour audio often means working for many hours to complete. I was shocked to find out how low the pay was....

    I worked at Net Transcripts for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, so you can work when you want (if there is anything to do).

    Cons

    Everything else. There is no work so you are constantly checking the site, hoping for something to do. The pay for work completed is dismal, too, so you end up earning next to nothing. You do not get paid unless you have work, so good luck most days earning anything at all. Management is nasty and does not care. I asked once about the lack of work, and they snickered saying I just wasn't grabbing it fast enough,...

    Pros

    Make your own hours.

    Cons

    The startup cost (pay for fingerprinting, background, soft/hardware), some of their rules seemed a little arbitrary. You get paid based on the audio minutes, not how difficult or how long it takes to complete. In the end the paycheck wasn't worth it.

    I worked at Net Transcripts for 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.
