    The Amazon job is no longer available.

    • Natalie

      It’s now listed under a different Job ID: 160007312

  2. Krista

    Has anyone had any experience with Rev? I would be interested in your thoughts about it!

    • Keri

      I have worked for Rev for almost a year, and I love it! I work when/how much I want to and the pay is decent for a work-from-home gig if you’re fast. 🙂 One pointer if you decide to go that route: Revver+ members get first dibs at transcription files, so you’ll want to be sure to keep your grading metrics and total minutes transcribed above the threshold so as to get access to the best projects. It’s fairly easy to do, just don’t let it slip or you’ll find yourself sorting through harder files. Since you’re paid by the audio minute, it’s better to transcribe files that are easier so you spend less time transcribing them.

      • Suzyq

        Do you do the transcribing or captions? Just wondering the difference in time it takes to do one over the other

        • Chrissy

          I am also wondering the same thing. Also I am just curious is this something that can be done with little kiddos around or do you do it at night?

          • Keri

            I have a toddler, and I sometimes do transcription when she’s awake, but mostly I do during her nap time or occasionally when she’s watching a show. It’s easier for me to dedicate time to doing a file so I can get it done without being interrupted.

        • Keri

          I just do transcription, so I can’t speak to the captioning.

      • JH

        Does Rev provide the transcription equipment?
        Thank you

        • Keri

          All you need is a computer and an internet connection to get started. I’d also recommend a foot pedal as they help you work faster. Rev does not provide this, but you can find them on Amazon for $50 or less.

      • Michelle M

        Thanks for sharing, Keri!

        Been looking for a job 2 months now since relocating to Florida from Chicago. I didn’t think it would be this difficult. The Rev opportunity would really help out, I’ll give it a shot! Thank you, Collin, for always helping out your followers!! You rock!

        • Misty

          Michelle, How is rev working out? Have you gotten paid? Are you making enough to make it worth while?

          • Michelle Manuel

            I just applied this evening. If you do decide to apply, set aside more than 60 minutes and provide yourself with a quiet space. They ask you to type up a few paragraphs about your home town (to see how you punctuate and form sentences, etc.) and they also give you a 2:30 minute transcribing session. The transcribing session took me longer than I expected as it was new for me and I was unfamiliar if I type verbatim or fix it along the way. I definitely feel comfortable that it is a secure company due to the testing.

            Perhaps Keri can answer your questions! Good Luck!

          • delvsl

            I worked for Rev for a very brief period (stopped w/ Rev after I got a 9-5 -which stinks, bc I’m out of the house for way longer than that – anyhow …)

            They are legit, you do get paid based on the job you complete. As a beginner, your work is reviewed so that they can offer tips to help you complete the jobs as they want them completed (specific formatting, etc.)

            They are serious about the confidentiality – there was an email that was sent out that they let a transcriber go bc the person had leaked some big news that was typed up. It wasn’t a major leak, if I remember correctly, just announced something on their private fb or something like that, but it’s a big no-no.

            They have every type of transcription job imaginable: interviews, police, educators, you name it.

            One of the tips that I liked was to slow the playback speed down a lot on initial type through – get it all in, and then re-listen to do your edits. Allows you to get through the job MUCH faster.

          • Keri

            They pay weekly (Mondays) via PayPal for work done the previous week. They also launched a new option for immediate payment via direct deposit, but I haven’t tested that out. I prefer a weekly payment.

            • priscilla

              I went through the application thing for Rev the other evening but today I got an email saying:

              Thank you for applying for the transcriptionist position with Rev. We have rigorous minimum standards and unfortunately your application did not meet those.

              Please do not contact Rev regarding this decision, as we are unable to further elaborate on our reasons.

              Again, thank you for your interest in working with Rev. You may re-apply in six months.

              And I thought I did pretty well. Oh well. Maybe I’ll try again in 6 months. It would be helpful to know what was not good enough for them.

    When you live in Maryland, the pickings are very slim.

    • Maya

  4. Tina

    • Nicole

    • Kay Xiong

      I never worked there but I did apply and got two interviews (all done over the phone) with them. Everything seemed really good.

  9. Rebe

    Thank you for this post Collin. If anyone knows of proofreading, translation and/and editing jobs please share. I am bilingual with a Science background, but I havent found any opportunities of these kind that are worth it. TIA.

    • Kay

      Hi Rebe, I work for an online nursing tutoring service at as an RN tutor. I know they have different departments like English, Math, and such. You might look there to see if there is something that is a fit for you. We are under the parent company of Pearson. I know that Pearson has a large online community. If you want to focus on Education, it might be worth checking into. 🙂

      • Sarah

        Hi Kay! What kind of online RN tutoring? I’m an RN, recently moved to another state, quit my part time job at hospital, and now stay at home because my husband travels. This sounds interesting! Any job openings?

        • Kay

          Sarah, email me at socalangelbabe at gmail dot com 🙂

    • Julie

      The Rev post has translation openings.

  12. JH

  15. Denise

    Brittany…I am interested as well. I sent you an email.

  16. Kristen

    Has anyone ever tried being a mystery shopper? Curious at the results

    • cc

      There are a lot of scam out there if they pay you big checks. (fake checks of course) Just be careful!

    • Allie

      I did it a few years ago, I stopped because the only two assignments in my area seem to be HP printer ink and Boarshead deli. For the latter, it was a lot of work and awkward secret questions to grocery staff whose name and looks you have to report, for a couple of dollars of grocery money reimbursement.

    • Cheryl S

      I have done mystery shopping for almost 10 years now off and on. I currently pick up for about 30+ companies. You can find legit company info at You won’t make a ton of money, but it’s fun work, you pick the shops you can do when you want, and sometimes you can ask for mileage or they offer small bonuses to meet a deadline.

    • Caran

      I used to do mystery shopping and felt the pay was too low for the work required.

  17. LL

    How can they pay less than the minimum wage in some of these states?

  18. Amy

    Just got on with TELETECH. Great co pd training, pt 25-30 hrs, some benefits. They hire quite a bit. But no kiddos home while working.

  19. Leslie R

    I wonder if you get discounts on hotel stays if you work pt for Hilton. 🙂 Great post, thanks for sharing all tge opportunities!

  20. Mauri Dickey

    Almost every job I’ve seen for at home work, they don’t hire in Nevada. Does anyone know why? Seems odd to me. Would appreciate any insite you might have. Thanks!

  21. Anna

    This is not “work from home” kind of deal, but it pays well. I am a tester for my local housing authority. If you have an anti-discrimination organization near you, check if they do this kind of tests. It is volunteer work and they pay you a stipend that far exceeds the minimum hourly wage.

  22. lee

    I have a Panasonic Microcassette Transcriber model # RR-930 with headset & foot controller if anyone is interested. I was just going to list it on Ebay or Bonanza.

  23. Christy

    I have my bachelor’s in accounting (been doing non-accounting office work though for the 3 years since I got my degree). Does anyone know of something that might be a good fit? Thanks!

  24. Jenna

    iSoftStone anyone worked for them??

  25. celestew25

    I work for as a Full Time Virtual Bookkeeper. It’s a great company and we just won the gold Stevie award for Best Employer. If you are looking for a great full time work from home position and are QuickBooks Savvy this one is for you. We are hiring. Apply and read more about the position at the link below.
