Transcend/MDI??? - Posted By: MTMommy

Does anyone have anything good to say about Transcend or MDI??? All I have read are negative things, and so far I have not had any problems. Are there any positive things to say about them??

Has anyone ever heard of this company? - Posted By: Kim

I just got a pretty generic looking e-mail from a Ctu, Inc.  Has anyone ever heard of this company?  They were looking for IC's, but you could only have "high speed, but not DSL" which I thought was the same....but anyway....anyone heard of these people?

Superior Global-out of Plano, TX..anyone else apply recently, told they were hiring quickly and to - Posted By: OldiebutgoodieMT

do the testing ASAP..only to do the testing ASAP and then hear nothing. Trust me, the testing WAS NOT hard so I can't believe I wouldn't have passed that part. I followed up with emails as to whether they received my tests back etc..but nothing. no response. I find that rude. Even a simple, Dear John, we aren't hiring you would have been polite than nothing at all..Unprofessional

Question on IC and statutory.. - Posted By: hoping for the better

When it comes to taxes, is an IC and statutory the same as far as them not withholding any taxes meaning is there a tax that a statutory position might withhold but not IC?  Thank you very much.

EMR/Voice Rec/Hospital Buyup - Posted By: Allison

UUGGHH!!!  I am a co-owner of a small med trans co in the Baltimore area.  It seems EVERYONE is going EMR or is becoming part of a new hospital program where they will do their clinic dictation on the outsourced transcription company of the hospital!!  Then, on top of it, a few med transcriptionists in the area are going around underbidding.  I have no problem with competition, but when they are underbidding so much, they are doing great harm to the profession!!  Anybody have any advertisement, job finding suggestions???



SGS - Posted By: SGSer

To the person who asked about Superior Global Solutions - Not worth working for.  Pay very low, no work, depending on account ESL's, mostly VR.  I have no idea why they are hiring when there is no work.  Looking for a different job myself.   

TransTech Transcription - Posted By: Carol

Could anyone tell me if they have ever worked for this company and your thoughts concerning them?  I did a search and came up with nothing on the site, so would like some additional information.

Thank you.

Questions about SPi's? Can anyone help? - Posted By: Needing info

Are they decent to work for?  Do they do speech recognition?  Are they loaded with ESLs?  Do they have a decent line rate, i.e., at least 8 cents/65 characters? 

Thank you for your help. 

Nicholas Transcription FTP question.. - Posted By: RetroMom

I'm just wondering which File Transfer Protocol they use.  I don't mean to sound like I'm prying, but the last couple I've used I had a problem slowing down the dictation, meaning you could absolutely not slow the voice down, or even adjust it.  It was the way it was.  Now, how in the world can you start a new account without being able to slow down occassionally? 

Anybody else had this problem?  Are they all like this?  I'm on C-phone right now.  Not perfect, but I like it okay.

Anyone else running out of work this summer?SM - Posted By: Howie

I have been with this company for quite some time, and this is the first time I have run out of work.  It has been slow since June, but pretty much the whole month of July has been hunting for work and getting lucky if there's any there.  We've been told it's just an unusually slow summer.  Anyone else with this problem? 

Does anyone know the minimum lines required part time for Amphion? Thanks. nm - Posted By: Searching


Who gives 2-week notice? - Posted By: jen

I feel that even when you've been done wrong by a company (depending of course on how bad) you should still give notice and work for the final 2 weeks. I'm curious what you all feel about this.

Would like to have any info on MWPS out of Sterling Heights, Michigan. Searched the archives (sm) - Posted By: Gwen

That is PATHETIC! Co is offering an IC position - Posted By: good luck!

at 5 cpl (yes, 5 cpl for an IC!!!!) with a POSSIBLE raise to 6 cpl in 90 days. That's the worst I've seen yet. I sincerely hope noone stoops as low as to accept that kind of pay.

Pros & Cons MDI-FL/How are the accounts?/Any input would be appreciated!! - Posted By: IowaMT

I currently work at a local hospital working full time.  The pay is okay, but I drive 50 miles one way.  MDI-FL has offered me a position with them and just need some feedback on the company.  Does anyone have trouble getting their line counts in?  Are they good about letting you use your PTO?

Any good IC companies out there? - Posted By: MT in MT

I am seriously considering purchasing my own equipment and telling MQ where to go, after working for them 10 years, 100% QA and still not even at 9 cpl.  I am wondering what some of the good IC companies are.

Focus - Posted By: Debbie

Anyone crazy enough to work for this company?

I am so tired of having to jump - Posted By: RAD MT

accounts to get a laughable report count. With the company I work for I have to work on 4 different accounts to even get the minimal amount of work daily. I cannot stand it anymore. I have to be the most flexible person in the world but enough is enough. Are there any companies out there that allow you to work 1 Radiology account and actually get a decent report count by the end of your shift. I am lucky if I hit 80 reports a day and that is just not cutting it for this single mom.

I guess I just needed to say it outloud. TIA.

Feeling clueless in regard to MT platforms such as Extext, etc. sm - Posted By: veteran MT

I have always worked with MS Word and WordPerfect. Had my own clients for many years, as well as working for MTSO as an IC. I have never worked on a transcription platform such Extext or any of the other common platforms. I am well versed in working digitally with FTP, TASP, etc. I currently work for a service and continue to work strictly in MS Word and FTP transfer. I worry about this lack of experience with these platforms What can I do to educate myself in the event I choose to go with a large national who uses a MT platform? Quite honestly, I have never even used a shortcut program other than auto correct in MS Word because I have very, very few repetitive dictations, as I type many different specialties and doctors, who each has their own style and format required (mainly teaching and research hospital) Thanks for any ideas.

To any Spheris employees, I quit in August and would like a copy SM - Posted By: ex-Spheris employee

of my YTD earnings. I have called HR but they never return my call. I forgot how to access the online ADP. Can anyone give me a phone number to call, payroll number or something so I can call and get a copy of my earnings? Thanks.

Edix versus Spheris - Posted By: Miss Willy

I worked for Edix a number of years ago, but I never worked for Spheris after Spheris bought out Edix.  Is there anyone who worked for Edix and did not leave when Edix was sold who could tell me what changes were made and if they are worth working for.  I saw some posts below about not being able to make the line count for the day.  Is this a sign that things are not good with Spheris?

FOCUS ?? - Posted By: kann

I read some posts about Focus.  I see they're hiring and I need a part-time job to supplement my full-time one.  Are they that bad to work for?  What do they pay per line and anyone who has worked for them, did it really take that long to get up and running with them???

ETranscription - Posted By: Lisa

What can you tell me about this company? I have a job that I really like but it is not the type of transcription I like to do best. This company expressed interest and it is typing what I love most, yet I hate to give up a good thing. Help.

Any info on Medivoxx? - Posted By: what's up

Does anyone know anything about this company?

Does anyone know what type of platform MxSecure - Posted By: utilizes? Anyone have info on this company?

I love cardiology and am just wondering if they use a platform before I apply.  I wouldn't want to waste their valuable time if they expect work transcribed on a platform, i.e., Emdat or the like.  I am interested in typing in Word and using Express Scribe for voice.  Any info would be greatly appreciated!      my fellow MTs.......

Got E-mail from MQ - packets to be out by 10/07. (sm) - Posted By: NN

I am keeping my fingers crossed.  There have been many, many changes in how transcription was done since I first began.  In fact, in the old days there was no working at home and I have to admit I am old enough to remember doing this with carbon sets and having to correct several pages if you made a typo. 

I am hoping that whatever changes are coming about in the industry that I can adapt and find a way to make it work for me for just 11 more years then I can sit back and bask in the sunshine of retirement with my hubbie.

Axotol testing----is it verbatim or per BOS? - Posted By: keep on learning

I've seen others post their transcription is verbatim, does that also mean their testing is verbatim or is it per BOS?  If per BOS, is it 2nd or 3rd ed?   Any info would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.


Anyone know how long it takes to hear back from Prescyse after taking the test? - Posted By: Susan
