At 1-888-TYPE-IT-UP we know that transcription requires hard work and skill. Contrary to what other transcription companies will have you believe, transcription isn't just something anyone can do. As such, we're looking for the best and brightest. We have many talented transcriptionists on our current team, but we're always looking for new talent too.
If you live in the United States and you're interested in becoming a transcriptionist for 1-888-TYPE-IT-UP, please fill out the job application below. We will do our best to respond to you as soon as we can. Please understand that we strive to keep the telephone line open for clients, so we ask for no phone calls from applicants, please. It is imperative that we test both your transcription accuracy and your ability to follow directions. Ergo, any phone call from an applicant results in an automatic failure of that applicant's transcription test.
If you have questions about the application process or about working for us in general, we've put together an applicant FAQ page that answers the most common questions we receive from applicants on a daily basis.
TRANSCRIPTION PAY RATE
The #1 most frequently asked question by applicants is, how much do you pay? Although our focus is on quality and accuracy, we understand the practicality of knowing whether our transcription work will be worth your while. Our transcriptionists make $36 to $180 per audio hour, and we strive to pay at least $1 to $2 per audio minute ($60 to $120 per audio hour) and higher when possible. Pay rates vary per assignment depending on how much clients are willing to pay. Please keep in mind that we cannot pay 100 percent of what our clients pay, as we do have to pay transcript editors and project managers as well as a number of fees associated with doing business. In addition, costs for search engine advertising are extremely high, ranging anywhere from $5 to $25 per click every time anyone, even a job seeker, clicks on an ad in Google, Bing or Yahoo. All that said, you should know that every day we are behind the scenes fighting for you all to make the wage you deserve despite our unethical competitors' efforts to tear down the transcription industry. That's why our transcription wage of $36 to $180 per audio hour far surpasses that of our competitors who only pay $10 to $30 per audio hour.
ONE IMPORTANT NOTE: We no longer offer second attempts on our transcription test. Moreover, we no longer accept applicants at lower pay rates if they failed our test and passed on a second attempt.
Unfortunately, like any transcription company, we are prone to angry applicants who:
- fail our test and receive a rejection letter
- fail our test and receive a lower pay rate due to passing only on the second attempt
With this in mind, please be very careful reading the test instructions and taking your time with our short test. Although we receive hundreds of applications every week, most applicants fail our test as a result of not double-checking their work.
As of Monday, February 15, 2016, you will now receive our transcription test automatically via email as soon as you submit your application.
If you've applied prior to Monday, February 15, 2016 and you are still waiting to receive the test, you are welcome to reapply by filling out the job application again to receive the test instantly upon submission.
