Excellent company and very interesting work.
Law enforcement Transcriptionist (Current Employee) – Virtual – February 27, 2019
I've been transcribing LE audios for Net Transcripts since 2012 after working as a legal secretary for many years. Initially I planned to work a couple of years until my husband retired, but I became addicted to working for this company and haven't been able to bring myself to quit, though I do this part-time now. As others have mentioned, the pay is not comparable to what you'd make in a "real job," but you can write off your expenses and there are no words to express how much I love not spending hours a day commuting (which you're not paid for), having to dress professionally, and not working for firms that have cut staff ratios and benefits drastically while hiring more lawyers and creating somewhat hostile work environments where the multiple layers of management are constantly looking for ways to drive out experienced (expensive) staff to save $$. This company has ruined me for ever working for "the man" again. Every communication I have had over the years with every department of Net Transcripts has been extremely respectful and positive. I feel like they're my virtual friends though I try to work on my own to resolve issues before reaching out for help so I don't wear out my welcome. Yes, the audios can be challenging, but I feel extremely honored to work for this company on behalf of the law enforcement community, whom I also have enormous respect for and the company's expectations are reasonable. I'm not sure I could work enough hours to live on this salary but it's a great supplemental income and the pay has recently changed from the net 30 I've been receiving.
VERY interesting work, very flexible schedule, excellent staff at the company
Pay should probably be increased
