    "Worst company"

    1.0
     

    I worked at GoTranscript

    Pros

    Nice website and full-time available chat agent

    Cons

    Ridiculously low pay. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY. They look good and all that but in fact once you pass the test transcription there’s hardly works that you can manage to do—the audios sound terrible and they last 5 min and pays you $3 for transcription that. It should be legal.

  2. "Easiest platform to work on so far."
