    I have been working at Quicktate

    Pros

    You can hop on and type when you want. But there may or may not be jobs available for you to type. If you really need a job and $1.00 an hour is acceptable to you - than this is for you.

    Cons

    Even for inexperienced typists, the pay is really a joke. If you are completely without work and very bored - you may get $1.00 an hour. Which may or may not be acceptable to you.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Quicktate part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work whenever you want. Audio files are voice mail messages that are easy to transcribe. Enjoyable work you can do at home.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay. 1/4 a penny per word. Wish I could make this a career but pay is so low it's not worth doing and turns into a waste of your time. What a shame.

    I worked at Quicktate for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy work. Work as much or as little as you want. As long as your work is accurate and timely, things go smoothly when doing work for QuickTate. It's a great way to get transcription experience. The style they teach is not transferable to other serious transcription companies but it's a great filler to put on your resume to show that you can do the work to an employers specifications.

    Cons

    Once you've been with QuickTate for awhile and have submitted high quality work, they will offer you a position with iDictate. This is where all the issues and the majority of their complaints as a transcription company come from. They offer support teams for basic needs and general questions and a contact for any detailed questions or as a final say in a style standard. They also have various reviewers that review your work. The issue comes in with the lack of consistency among them. It was normal for me to be told completely different things by all three and when I would ask for clarification, instead of getting a final answer, the transcriptionist contact would give attitude instead of answering the question. That left me with no answer and a desire to not want to clarify anything in the future. I often had to google answers to my questions and would utilize forums. Through the forums, I discovered that it's common knowledge that because of the lack of oversight of the transcription contact and reviewers, most transcriptionists had no idea what format they really wanted and were used to being treated poorly. They changed their work based on who their reviewer was likely to be. I also learned they have very high turnover rate in iDictate because it doesn't seem to get any better regardless of how long you work for iDictate. It was ultimately not worth the hassle. I moved to work for another transcription company.
