AJ1974,

I took a look at the site. It seems legit. I've never heard of this company, but their application process is a normal form that you would fill out for an employer. It doesn't ask for money, so I say go for it.

I filled out the short application and submitted my resume, so I hope to hear something soon. Thanks for the lead. And much success to you in your job hunting.

IMO, I guess you would have to apply and see what happens. If they reply and are interested in your qualifications, you should be able to get more info. I have never heard of the company before, but check around. It maybe listed somewhere around here.

Good Luck if you did try out for it! Hope it is positive news! smileys/smiley1.gif

Ladybug01,

If you click on the link posted up top by AJ1974. You should see this link below to the right of the Web site. Just click on it and an application will open up in another window. Just fill out what they ask and send it back to them. I haven't heard anything back yet though.

I see they have customer service jobs too.

I see under the information on Data Entry they use offshore outsourcing. It kind of put me off. What do you all think?

authentic2go
03-26-2009, 06:47 AM
I guess my first thought is that they want to save money on contracting out work. I'd say draw your own conclusion from that.

From what I understand (and I could be wrong) but when companies outsource to other countries, those who work for them outside of the USA are paid way under our minimum wage standards.

Maybe it's because of our economic situation but I have no clue.

Let's see what others get for a response first.

I'm sure we'll discover more soon.

authentic2go

After-thought: What does kind of turn me off about that is mainly for one reason only.

There are so many of us in the US (especially now) who need the work. We live, spend and contribute back to our society. So we need an income to continue to do that.

Companies who outsource and in my humble opinion are trying to keep their overhead expenses down and I get that. But what about "our" supply and demand?

Anyway ... I guess I could get off on a rant about it and I don't want to pull us off the subject matter.

Like I said, I guess lets see what comes from it.

Yes, I thought they really stress how much cheaper they can get your work done for you. I really was put off with them saying how they outsource data entry. That usually means they are paying someone overseas about $2.00 an hour &amp; alot of times even less than that.
we need the jobs here in the USA!! I'm hoping in the future that the US govt. puts more taxes &amp; restrictions on companies that outsource instead of giving them tax breaks.

OT - my brother told me about 3 years ago that he was thinking about outsourcing his data overseas,&amp; I told him he better not, &amp; if he did, he can forget about me talking to him. He has his own business, &amp; I help him out alot, but I told him he can forget about my help if he started outsourcing overseas.

To those applying, please keep us informed.

you know, one of the people for whom i do transcription is looking for people "offshore" not because of the "cost savings", but because of the TIME DIFFERENCE.

and a large part of the people that i know that work from home in other countries are, like myself, americans who are not allowed to work in the countries where they live. i think you should be *really* careful in the whole "people overseas are undercutting" thing. srsly. ugh.

[also, if you have the money to bring my kids' grandparents to the usa as well as my kids, as well as cough up the cash so we can all live in a Very Good School District, then by all means do so, and i'll come back to the states and live. how's that?]

Has anyone here worked for them, or even heard back about your application? I was thinking of appying but would like some to hear some feedback about this company. Any information would be greatly apprciated.

Hi Joline86,

I had forgotten I responded to this thread way back in March of this year. LOL. But I never heard anything back from this company from when I applied back then. So, I have no clue what they are all about and have never heard anyone mention that they work for them, since this thread first appeared. Sorry.

But if you like editing and proofreading and reviewing descriptions on websites, check out my blog to find out more about it. If interested click the link and sign up. You pay nothing, it's free to join. And get this you make money instantly after completing assignments and you will be paid TONIGHT for work completed before 10 pm est. I received a payment last night for work done yesterday. I worked for about 1 1/2 hrs today and have made over $13 so far, and expect to receive payment in my PayPal account later on tonight. It really is a great opportunity.

Enjoy your Saturday.

Toodles

Thank you so much for responding. That sounds like a great opportunity. I will definately check it out.:)

You are very welcome. I know you will be happy with this and the best thing about it is, when you refer other people you get paid 10% of what they earn. And you can earn up to 3 levels, though the percentage of what you make off the other 2 lower levels is less. But still this is an excellent opportunity and the 1st one I've found that pays instantly and pays this well for your referrals.

If you joined under me, thanks a bunch. I know you won't be disappointed with this one.

Catch you later.

I applied towards the end of last week and I heard a response yesterday. A rep from the company emailed me and sent me some paperwork and there policies so I could ensure this was something I wanted to do then we would set up a Skype chat to interview. You make $15 per audio hour to start, not how long it takes you to proof or transcribe. After you show them you can meet deadline and your quality of work you can make $18 an hour. There's a possibilty for advancement and becoming a project manager. All sounds legit. I'm a little nervous, never done this before. We'll see. I'll keep you posted. A lot of these companies only reply if THEY like you. Which I am finding out. I've applied for about 15 different jobs in about 3 weeks and this is one of the three that I've heard back from and the most promising so far. I really would like to be at home when my kids get home from school but finding good leads, it's really hard - even on here.

I definitely wish you good luck with this, but be aware of the time that might go into the work. I gather from some of the more experienced transcribers, that an audio hour could take anywhere from two to four hours to transcribe (someone correct if I am wrong?). That would leave you making somewhere between $3.75 and $7.50 an hour, and of course if you're new to it you might have to allow for the slower time.

I hope it works out well for you thought, just wanted to give you a heads up :)

$18 an audio hour is an abysmal rate. Check out the transcription folder. An hour of good audio will take at least three hours to transcribe and more likely much longer for a beginner. You need to consider the time to download, proofread, edit, and upload as well.

2.00 an hr is a lot for people overseas esp in some countries.

bunny22,

thanks for clarifying that, my reply was shooting from the hip just form what I remembered other transcribers saying, it seemed to me that it would be terrible low and that they had not explained how long it could take to sred when she applied. Isn't something along $50-$60 per audio hour more in line with the norm? Or am I overshooting it now?

$50 to $60 an audio hour is a good starting rate.

oh my goodness, at that payrate, working for an hour would barely give you change after buying a candybar :eek:

sounds like you'd be better off going with either quickt#te or speakwr&te and with qt you have the opportunity to move up to a better paying position if you're good. btw: have you applied at all of the transcription companies that offer decent pay?
