Work at home part time job that makes you wait 60 days to get paid.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A very positive thing that I can say about the company is that the job is flexible and you can work on your own schedule.You can select various tasks from the Hopper on Raterhub. Sometimes there are no tasks because other agents have taken them before you. The tasks that you perform have estimated finish times. the times range from 1 minute to maybe 7 minutes to complete. Most of the time you will go over the estimated completion times if you want your work to be accurate. You have to keep a log of the number of tasks you complete and the time it took to complete. And then you will enter all that information into your time sheet. Of course you are not paid for that book keeping, only the time that you spend completing tasks.The pay schedule is way too long to receive your first paycheck. Lets say that you begin on the first of the month. You will work during that first month and at the end of that month your time is turned in for review. At the end of the second month you receive your paycheck. Waiting two months is the hardest but after the first paycheck, they will be consistent and pay you regularly each month.

Pros

Flexible part time work at home job.

Cons

Having to keep logs of your tasks and minutes so you can fill out your timesheet, Takes nearly 2 months to get your first paycheck. Salary paid once a month.

Unprofessional, sloppiness in their business

Chaotic environment, workload for junior staff to high, therefore unworkable. Top heavy management. No direction, r&d lacking Training or lack of provided to the team. Crisis management only.

Not a nice place to work.

STAY Away. There is a reason you always see their jobs advertised. There is such a high turnover of staff. They are an awful company, hostile atmosphere in certain teams. Weak HR afraid to tackle bullying etc. Number of teams have lost staff due to poor management. You will be hung out to dry by your managers.

Pros

Health Insurance.

Cons

Long hours. Poor work life balance

fun with colleagues a pain with managers

repetitive tasks to improve AI nice colleagues, but a lot of hypocrits management of the worst kind, meetings looking like the desperate housewives series no possibility to project yourself in the future as managers choose who they like and who they don't great salary, debilitating tasks managers can make mistakes, but workers can't

Pros

technical staff is ok, comfortable environnment

Cons

very repetitive, fake team spirit

Excellent place to work, great work-life balance. Working on cutting edge technology (AI) for global customers. Excellent senior managment team who lead and support a diverse workforce.

Stay away!

90% of managers have no previous experience of this role, promotions follow a 'masons' format - who you know, not what you can do. As a result managers surround themselves with those who can do to justify their position but take all the credit if all going well. Wages, Infrastructure, management are generally poor. Look elsewhere

Trabalho home-office, porém dinâmico, com prazos e mudanças constantes. Reportava-me ao responsável pela região.

Responsabilidade em traduções da língua inglesa para portuguesa, e vice-versa. Responsável por transcrever versões escritas de livros, documentos e textos digitalizados em geral.

Pros

Home-office

Cons

Sinto falta da dinâmica de sair de casa e me relacionar no dia-a-dia com colegas de trabalho.

Working from home is great

You can plan and do work when it suits you best. Not having to commute for work is great to and to be in the comfort of one's own home. The tasks are challenging but once you have learned they are easy enough. The problem as I see it is that you have to reach a fairly high number of tasks completed to make ends meet. Specially since it's only a part time job. This is hard to balance since you also have to maintain a high quality.

Remote internet assessor

Remotely: you chose how many hours working and receive only for that. Some tasks spended more time than they suppose. Workplace: at home. The worst part of the job has to do with Brazil more than the company. The tax to receive the money from international companies was very high.

Pros

Work freely

Cons

working more than earning, receive international money.

Could not recommend working here

Pros: Staff are friendly, flexi-time is good if you are allowed to avail of it. Free healthcare, pension. Ballina is a cheap place to live. Cons: Poor wages, very few pay rises, very few opportunities to advance. Teams on site very siloed, the left hand doesnt know what the right is doing. Managers seems to love keeping secrets from staff. Some mid and even senior managers are very inept and foster a culture of ensuring your back is covered as they will try to point the finger of blame at staff for issues they cause. Recently bought by a hedge fund and the new CEO is ruthless in delivering his targets, which seem to be firing a lot few people, including the site manager locally and several senior managers internationally.

Pros

Flexitime

Cons

Pay, Poor Management

A very good company

I had the opportunity to work with different people in the Courts, Hospitals and Garda Stations. Interpreting is a very challenging job but also very rewarding and offering a good work experience.

adaptable pero impredecible

relativamente estable aunque con variedad de fallos de programa inexplicables que podían retrasar gravemente el horario de trabajo establecido. Aun así, muy facil de compaginar con la vida personal e incluso con otro empleo a tiempo parcial, y me dió la posibilidad de aprender sobre temas muy variados y sobretodo sobre estructura web y marketing online

Pros

facil de compaginar con la vida personal e incluso con otro empleo a tiempo parcial

Cons

fallos de programa que podían retrasar gravemente el horario de trabajo
