Unfortunately, this company doesn’t have work year round and the work they offer is seasonal. You’ll need to be available during the company’s peak hours and be able to work at least 3 hours a day. AccuTransGlobal offers a decent pay for your work and they pay you per work instead of an audio minute. If you’re looking for a job to help fill in the gaps or earn a little extra money this is a decent company to work for.
