Don't bother unless you are desperate.
Video Captioner (Current Employee) – FL – January 11, 2019
Work from home.
You get to choose what videos you caption and when you want to work.
You have time to unclaim a video without penalty, and that time and your deadline are on the captioning screen to reference.
Jobs start in the top of 3 tiers(Revver+) and remain there for 1.5 hours. Which means that that queue could have hundreds of available jobs, but my middle tier(Revver) could be empty. This is often the case during the day when I want to work. In the evenings my queue is most active/full.
Most grading is helpful and fair, but a few grades have been unfair and/or condescending.
Training is very much on the job and could be vastly improved. The problem is that when you make errors when learning the ropes it will count against your metrics. You need to keep those up in order to stay with the company and move up.
The deadlines can be tight especially if you have a hard video.
Many videos are poor quality.
Some videos are a lot harder to caption than others, but there seems to be no consideration in this regard.
I cannot stress this enough. The pay is pitiful. Trust me on this one. It takes a lot of time and effort to caption an average video, and you will not be paid anywhere near what that time and effort are worth.
You are a number with no job security.
I would describe my experience with Rev as very disappointing and frustrating.
It's better than nothing. So, if you are desperate for some extra income for one reason or another this may fill up some of your time, but it won't fill up your wallet.
