    Pros

    HubShout was a good experience overall. I think the best approach is to treat it like a paid internship -- that’s about as long as a lot of writers stay anyway. It’s not going to be a forever employer but it’s not a bad intro to writing etc., and probably no other place will ever ask you to write so much in a day so you’ll be prepped. I would say the company has a fair # of things that could be improved on. To their...

    One of the big points that made me realize there was an end time for my working there was the PTO. 12 days a year for sick/personal/doctors/vacation/*blizzards*(! I was mad to hear about friends having to drive in dangerous conditions when a work-from-home exception really should be granted... if something actually happened how horrible would that be??) is on the low side, especially when you have to accrue it and then...

    Rat an das Management

    I never thought I would give this advice, but more management might help (or restructuring how it currently operates so that perhaps there is one company manager who does NOTHING but manage, and more team leaders focused purely on editing or directing AMs, whatever). Multiple times a manager would say “I’ll look into it” then forget to relay the message/concern/question and I’d have to follow up multiple times - etc....

      Stimmt gegen Geschäftsführer

      Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei HubShout gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

      Pros

      The writers and account managers are very friendly, and it was a pleasure getting to know them. However, the only reason I (and probably other writers) continue(d) to stick around is because of the flexibility of being able to work from home. Working remotely and being able to build up a small portfolio (I do mean small - 99% of the work is ghostwriting) are literally the only redeeming qualities of this job. Don't...

      In all honesty, this job took away my passion for my craft and my confidence in myself. Here's why: Once you prove to management that you're a competent writer who can handle deadlines, they'll work you as hard as they possibly can by asking you to take on extra duties without any type of additional compensation, quota reduction, or even acknowledgement. You're expected to complete 45 articles ('tasks') per week, with...

      Rat an das Management

      PAY YOUR WRITERS WHAT THEY ARE WORTH. To try to justify the measly $12/hr pay by simply dismissing the writer's job as "entry level" is an egregious injustice and an absolute slap in the face to the writers, virtually all of whom have a minimum of a Bachelor's degree. Some of the job description itself can be categorized as an entry level position, but the workload is not, by any stretch of the imagination, something...
