You are not guaranteed work at all
Transcriber (Current Employee) – Remote – April 9, 2018
I can only speak for how it is being a part-time worker for this company and that is all I intend on doing. I can imagine being full-time is slightly better.
The pros are simple for PT:
Freedom to make your own hours, a 401k, and good pay.
The cons are a little more worth touching on:
First off, by contract, it is written that you will be given 24 hours a week, but that it is not necessary to make all the hours if you do not want to.
In reality, you are lucky to get 8 hours in 2 weeks. So do not depend upon this jobs for bills - it's a complete shame they just aren't upfront about the stability of the hours/work you're given.
Secondly, you are lucky to get any support response back from HR or your manager if you are having problems of any kind. The completely ridiculous thing about it is all over the employee websites is that they will get back to you in 24-48 hours. This is also false, and you're lucky to get a minimal response back from your manager regarding anything at all, as they also seem to have no idea what's going on half the time.
401k, freedom to make your own hours, good pay
horrible management, no work, low communication
