Horrible culture, abusive management
Transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Johnstown, PA – June 24, 2016
Transcriptionists are paid $8 an hour and work mandatory 6 days a week under constant threat of job security. Management is rude, hostile, verbally abusive, and has a "stick before the carrot" attitude, expecting that employees will work harder if they are yelled at and treated poorly than if they are rewarded for good performance.
The office is hideous. Carpeting is moldy, ceiling leaks water, work equipment including computers is dirty, mostly broken, and outdated. There are no windows in the office. Highly encourage anyone who may be interested in transcription as a career (the work is very interesting for the most part) to look into working online via sites such as Rev.com where you can set your own hours and not be treated like a slave.
Work can be very interesting at times
Management is borderline abusive, work environment is filthy and unsanitary.
