As a Project Driver you never knew what the day would hold and where you where off to next.

The money is extremely good and Google really look after their employees. We always stayed in the best lodging available.


Only hard part, and I say this lightly, is we would sometimes be far away from any civilisation. In those cases support from HQ was difficult.

I worked for a company subcontracted to execute the program, I didn't deal with google directly but the company I worked for seemed to have a good relationship with the google team

Freelance Transcriber (Current Employee) - Amanzimtoti, KwaZulu-Natal
Although this is an online position, it's important to have drive to try and make the job work for you. This job allows you to make as much money as you want depending on the amount of work you do. The downfall of it is that people don't think you are actually working and so think that what they have come to bother you for, is actually the important task you should be focusing your attention to.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Not been taken seriously by other people
