I don't think the company is bad. But to do these transcriptions accurately takes a very, very long time. A lot longer than makes the payscale worth-while by any stretch of the imagination. A person would be lucky to get a real rate of over 5 dollars an hour. But if you try to speed it up to make it more worthwhile, you are more likely to make mistakes and be penalized. My first couple of projects were graded 5s, but now I guess I am getting different graders because I am getting 4s and 3s. It already wasn't really worth my time to do this, but since I am going to be bounced after another project or two anyway, I am just not going to bother anymore.

Also, if someone says "cause" it is idiotic to change it to "because". That isn't what they effing said.

If I were in charge, I would create a Grammer and Puncuation Assessment test upon hiring. If that isn't something I could manage to do, I would instead supply those who are hired with websites that have either free games or tests that will provide them with the correct information to better themselves. As a contractor that's something they should do by themselves. But as a business perspective I'd want to set MY company up for success. Also, there are websites out there that allows you to create your own tests for free.

Rev should not threaten their employees, that “If an employee does not meet the metric requirements by the time, they have completed 100 minutes their account will be closed.” That is just not fair, everybody deserves a another chance to do better. Just being honest!

Show more transparency. The help desk girl that claims to be 100% helpful with her answers told me I simply should just not worry about a comment placed on my project regarding time stamp aligment failure-needs attention because it was post production and for the REV people. I never said I was "worried". She skirted around answering the question and my only option was -none.
