Started out okay but they had metrics that are very difficult to achieve, especially when you're a newbie.

They disabled my account after I got a perfect score. I was upset and emailed them twice about it and they completely ignored me.


Just warning anyone out there, if you don't get a near perfect score after the first 100 minutes of transcription, they will disable your account.


They have people to review your work, so not sure why they're so picky with newbies, its unfair and they need to give people more time to learn.
Points positifs
You can work on your own schedule
Points négatifs
It's not worth the time unless your an expert transcriptionist

Rev is a super easy to use platform that you can go back to whenever you want. You can work freely from wherever you are so long as you are able to properly hear and transcribe files. Sticking to the guide book can be difficult at times, but the rules are very simple to follow!

Gives poor audio files, has a strict grading system, and if your unable to maintain the grades under this system immediate account closure. This company uses other freelancers to determine if you're allowed to continue working within the company. The criteria to be promoted to a reviewer/grader is very simple where anyone can do within a week or two if you can set aside some time. I highly do not recommend this company, they will easily close your account suddenly themselves, or someone else can easily drop your rating/grade to where the automated system will close your account.
Points positifs
Able to make your own schedule
Points négatifs
Poor pay, poor audio, strict grading

Rev will be what you put into it. I signed up to get additional practice at transcription for college figuring that a bit of extra money wouldn't hurt. Your initial hours pay really poorly, but if you bother to do enough to get into the highest tier it isn't bad as a side hustle.

Overall the job is highly competitive and very self-led/independent. While it’s fun and interesting there’a often not a lot of jobs available or the pay is too low for the time spent working on it. It’s mainly a side hustle/extra pocket cash deal, not really a base your income on it deal
Points positifs
Fairly interesting, easy to pick up and learn, self-led, laid back.
Points négatifs
Not that much money, jobs aren’t always available, and difficult to maintain.

If you can type fast, have a broad vocabulary and a keen attention to detail, the work provided by Rev to its freelancers can be a breeze to complete. There is an abundance of support from the Rev Community via an active forum if you ever get stuck on something, and as long as you are consistent, the work will always be available for you to do if you choose. You get what you give, and that can be a little or a lot. Depends on you.

Low pay and rating system is poor. Good for a couple extra bucks, but not worth it in the long run, even if you enjoy doing this sort of thing. The audio being uploaded to the site is always very poor, and takes a very long time to decipher what is being said, so the pay becomes even worse over time.

free-lance transcriptions are fun as long as you're able to push yourself to do it and you are not bored too easily doing the same thing all day, listening to generally boring things

They have a grading scheme for the submitted transcriptions that is incredibly inconsistent. Sometimes I would have a grader that would mark me down every time they didnt understand why I put a comma, and sometimes I would get someone who had 0 comments on the same quality of work. For all the trouble some of the graders wanted us to go through for difficult audio files, we were paid absolutely nothing. Some audio files that take 15-20 mins to transcribe were paid $1.30. Insanely low pay.

Now, this should not be a full time job. I've been working for REV for 4 years while I was in college full time. If I put in 6-8 hours of work a week I was able to bring in $150-$250 a week (this was after conversion as I'm in Canada). This helped cover minor expenses or spending money I needed when student loans didn't get me there.

Grading can be tough but it is to weed out the bad transcriptionists. Don't forget, these audio files are for actual clients needing scripts for the audio or video files. The application can be hard to pass, I think I tried 2 or 3 times. But once in I flew through the grading system. They do hold you to a high standard and if you fall below the minimum level your account gets banned.
Points positifs
Flexible, Decent Income, Interesting Audio/Video Files
Points négatifs
Grading, Pay, No benefits

It started off okay. You're given the impression that if you commit to working hard and with a high level of quality that you'll proceed to earn more money. However, about 6 months in I was given what entailed more responsibility with no jump in pay. Their standards kept changing and the pay kept going down. You are paid by the minute of whichever project you are working on. The audio is rarely ever clear and that's where the pay is not worth your time.

If you have a project that's an hour in length, pays .50 cents a minute, that's $30. However, it's not paid by your minutes (more like hours) of time that you put into it. That one project will often take anywhere from 4 to 8 hours (often times more). So, do the math. If it took you 8 hours, you're earning 3.75/hourly. If you were lucky and it only took you 4 hours, 7.50/hourly. Also, you are not allowed to work on more than one project at a time.


The only thing I can say on a positive note is that you work from home and set your own schedule. The other positive is that I now have a year of experience in captioning and transcribing.


In closing, I honestly don't understand how they get away with paying people so poorly. They have big name contracts. So, I'm sure the people running things are making a pretty penny off of their employees backs.

Found the work to be of a difficulty level that led to bad marks despite anyone's best attempt. Often had to drop work I'd picked up since it would alter my metrics (their scoring/grading system).

They expect exceptional work with no regard for employees cost of living, the amount of time or effort put in and the company never takes responsibility when it is at fault.
Points positifs
Work From Home, Choose Hours
Points négatifs
Terrible Pay To Work Ratio, Can't communicate with anybody above you, You will get blamed for issues with their website, regularly.

Pay is fairly low as is the norm with most online transcription jobs. If you have a good grasp of english and grammar and have a good set of headphones, you will make a decent supplemental income however. There seems to be a lot of work lately.

$0.30-0.50 to start per audio minute. $O.40-$1.00 (barely audible audio) if you get a metric of 4.5 or higher. When you first start, your metric average is decided by the number of jobs you do so if you score anything less than 5/5, their automatic marking system will close your account. Most of the audio you can not understand or hear due to background noise, multiple speakers, or thick accents.
Points positifs
You set your own hours, choose which horrible audio you want to stressfully transcribe
Points négatifs
Everything else - Pay, audio quality, Non-existent QC process.

You get paid the more hours you put in, but as you start out you would work 3 hurs for $5.00. And it takes a long time to move up in the hierarchy. A work schedule could not get more relaxed (it is freelance), but this also has potential to bring about issues.
Points positifs
Extremely flexible schedule
Points négatifs
Long hours for little pay

Transcribing and captioning audio and video files can be very interesting but also very stressful. Pay is based on length of source material and not on length of time to transcribe / caption. Tough standards to maintain in order to retain status. Very difficult to move to higher level. 90% of customer files are poorly recorded and difficult to transcribe.
Management does seem to be addressing these issues slowly, but is aware of employee dissatisfaction.

I applied to this place thinking that it would be a great way to subsidize my day-job salary. I just graduated from school after 6 years, so I obviously have some major payments to make. I was super excited.

So I started my freelance work with Rev, super excited that they pay using PayPal rather than requesting my account information. Things were great for like the first week. I completed 9 videos and earned $100 (so obviously the pay per hour sucks but I need the money...).


And then it all went downhill from there.


After one week of being apart of the Rev team, I received an email stating that my account was indefinitely closed. The decision was final. There is no appeal process.


They said it was because my percentage of commitment was too low. It was 90% because I had to un-claim a video that had terrible audio quality. The metric is supposed to be weighed over 120 days. They gave me 7.


I also noted that after you receive your, "Yay, you've captioned over 100 minutes!" email, they start to grade SUPER hard. They pick on you for things that were never in their instructional guide, and they offer no explanation either.


Just the worst. Not only is this company completely unfair in terms of how much they pay people, they clearly have no standards when it comes to releasing people who do good quality work.


Anyways, I tried to sign up again using a different email address and was denied without any explanation. This company sucks.

Finished transcriptions with overall ratings of 4.5-5.
However, yesterday they randomly locked me out saying I did not meet the grade requirements. Their grading system is confusing and unfair.

I just finished a 27 min transcription, finished attention to detail, and then the next day I get a notification saying I got a score of 1 and am getting kicked out. What a waste of time. I spent about 2.5 hours to finish it for only to be paid $12. Flexibility and working from home is quite convenient, however, it isn't worth your time. You are working below minimum wage.
