Upcoming interview with Diskriter. - Posted By: Candy

I got a phone call from the Human Resource department at Diskriter.  After talking with the lady, I was told that I would get an interview tomorrow.  That is all the information she gave.  I would like to know if anyone had a phone interview with them and what can I expect? Thanks.

Global Info Systems ring a bell - Posted By: frogmommie.com

with anyone? I don't see any other posts on it and have been offered a job. (The name is not Superior Global) I would sure like to know as much about them before rather than later. Thanks.

under DeVenture and T-C Transcription, and who would be the better of the 2?  I don't need benes---main concern is having enough work (at least majority of the time).  Also the platform and pay.  TY

travelling transcriptionists - Posted By: jody

I am new to this site, and not sure this is the proper place, but does anyone know anything about travelling transcriptionists?  Worth it?    Are there many companies that hire travelling transcriptionists.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

IntelliType info - Posted By: Shasta

I would like to find out what platform they use for their oncology account, percentage of ESL dictators, and how the staff is to work with. I have a lot of oncology experience and would like to apply, but thought I would get a little information on this company first.  Thanks very much.

frustrated - Posted By: Does it always take this long to get started with

I finished my DQS training almost two weeks ago. I was cleared for DQS two days later. The next day I received an email saying a DQS user request would be submitted for me and an update provided when I'm added. I've heard nothing. I've emailed several times with no response. Every email up till then was answered within minutes. I want to call now but fear sounding annoying and having it held against me in some way because I really need this job.

Is this typical? If so I can deal with it. I just wish I'd get some type of response. Should I call and risk being annoying after sending several emails?

Anyone know how to get a foot in the door @ TransTech - Posted By: sm

I have read a lot of great things about them, and would love to know if anyone knows how to get a foot in the door. I just went to their site and submitted an application, but haven't done the testing yet.

I have over 5 years of MT experience, and am sick and tired of working for crappy companies that have late paychecks and run out of work! :( I want to get somewhere and get comfortable!

IC folks - Posted By: Birdladybi

Okay all of you IC folks quick question.  Do you like the flexibility of IC work?  Do you think being an employee is better or about the same?  Do you think you can make more money being IC as they are smaller companies than the big corporate giants we all know too well.  Just wanted some fast feed back on the life of being an IC.



Transform - Posted By: hl

I recently accepted a job with Transform and am looking for any information at all on the company.  Please help!  Thanks!!

Any information on All Type? - Posted By: me2

Searched archives and nothing came up.

From the archives, there was a problem verifying line - Posted By: counts. Is this fixed? Thinking about applying. nm


DocuMed - Posted By: MTQA

I've looked back at the posts on DocuMed; about how NJ is good and TN is bad.  My question is how can you tell which place your resume is going to?  I'd like to send a resume for the jobs posted on the seeker's board, but don't know what I might be getting in to.  Do I have to wait until I hear back from them to find out for sure and even then, how will I know?  If any current DocuMed MT from NJ could respond or even email me - this sounds like a really good company to work for and I don't want to make the mistake of getting in with the wrong one.  Thanks so much!

Current Medware MTs - Posted By: Searching

I have checked the archives and read about the problems recently, so am just asking some basic questions.  Please no flames.  What is considered part-time IC?  Is there an hourly requirement, or a line requirement to meet?  Is there more than one platform?  Is it easy to learn?  How much VR is available, and how do you like that platform?  What are the pros and cons of part-time with this company?  TIA.

To All Unhappy MTs s/m - Posted By: gourdpainter

I have been screwed, glued and tattooed by several MTSOs.   Now I am !!!  The only difference is the last one has broken new ground.  I feel sure the big boys are waiting to see if this works as the ultimate club to keep you in line.  Courthouses may not be able to prosecute criminals because they are so clogged with SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation) lawsuits or legally known as slander and libel.   All of you are opening yourself to this by posting your experience with companies you have worked for on a public forum (unless, of course, you can give glowing reviews).  The one I am in trouble with is no worse than any of the others.  I am shocked that apparently ALL MTSOs feel they must monitor what their employees are saying about them.  What's that old saying? The guilty flee when no one pursues.

If all of you want to change your lot in life then do it!  It can be done.  Needless to say, because I have been placed in a position to HAVE to defend stating my experience and opinions, I have learned many things that I did not know before.  I will not share these things on a public forum.

The first thing you should do is organize a means of communication that is not viewable by your adversaries.  You also need a leader, one who is not afraid to stand up and fight.  If fatcat declines, perhaps Topaz or cj might be willing.  I don't know any of them but they all make very intelligent posts.

Good luck to all of you.



Who to choose? - Posted By: MTx6

Have offers for Cymed, TRS, Transolutions, and Silent Type.  They all seem to have pros and cons.  I want to be happy at my job.  Any suggestions out there???

Question re pay dates for Webmedx. sm - Posted By: just started

I have the list that says nonexempt and exempt.  Nonexempt is employee, correct?  or do I have that backwards? 

Also, as an example, it says this pay period for nonexempt runs 03/27 to 04/09, with pay date on 04/17.  Pay days are really Monday?  Are the ever there early, maybe Friday or Saturday? 


Any info on BeyondTXT - Posted By: MidwestMT

Considering working for service that uses BeyondTXT.  Any +/- info on its merits, ease of use, etc?   Can MT work directly in own MSWord retaining use of expanders and such?  Thanks for any feedback.

Are there any companies that have health ins. for PTers? - Posted By: tia


FutureNet anyone? - Posted By: sammy

Any current or past FutureNet people care to comment on their satisfaction?  Any info appreciated.  Are they just IC?  How is the platform to work on and do you need a special foot pedal or pay for any software?  I know I've heard they have a lot of ESL, but so does my current account, so...was just wondering about workflow, the staff, etc.  I'm only looking for part time, so don't know if that would work, but if IC can't see being full time at one place, done that and didn't work out too well when work runs low!

TIA for any input.

How do you get "overtime" at Transcend? - Posted By: Curious

How does overtime work at Transcend?  Do many people get OT?  I have been asked to work "extra" but have never been paid OT.

Who is hiring part-time for ER, ortho, clinic dictation? sm - Posted By: 14+ year MT

I have over 14 years experience. I love doing orthopedics, ER notes, and clinic dictation.  Does anyone know of a company who is currently hiring for PT work right now?  I am looking for a company that you don't have to spend weeks and weeks filling out paperwork, calling back and forth, waiting, waiting and waiting to begin work.  I am very dependable, hard-working.  Looking for someone that can respect that in this day and time.  Any information would be greatly appreciated. 

Any current info on TMT Transcription? - Posted By: TIA

Decent cpl pay. - Posted By: Escription pay

Does it seem like escription accounts want to pay less because you can produce more with the editing? 

Never take less than 4cpl for editing.  That's the highest I've seen.  I personally won't take less than 9/10 cpl for the straight typing with those accounts either.

Diskriter hem/onc account - Posted By: Donna

Anyone who works for Diskriter on this account, would you please post what platform is used for this account and if you like the account or not.  Also, are there a great deal of ESLs?  Anything else you would like to share would be appreciated.  How do you like working for Diskriter? Thank you so much for your input.

ER at Transcend - Posted By: m2cents

Does anyone at Transcend get to type ER reports anymore?  My account used to be full of them but then they said they weren't dictating ERs anymore.  I see one come through once in a while but I'm not one of the lucky ones to get to transcribe it.


I would appreciate any input you could give me on working for this company. Thanks

GIMT (sm) - Posted By: MTK

I have seen a lot about them the last couple days.  Does anybody know how strict they are with their scheduling.  What is the chance that they might allow a 10-hour window to work in?  Thanks!

Webmedx - Posted By: frustrated and broke

Anyone out there working for Webmedx, or should I say not working....just signed on to my shift and have had two reports in 2 hours.  I do strictly Rad work.  Supposed to be full time when I started (I have 40 years experience) after 8 weeks with them, I find myself sneaking into the reports when it is not even my shift or my day to work just to get a lousy $200 a week.  That does not even buy groceries.  I was laid off a year ago and I really need some income. 

Can a Transolutions MT tell me what kind of health insurance they have?SM - Posted By: MT

CLKTranscription - Posted By: Holly MT

I am currently working for CLKTranscription and have been for a couple of months. I have been extremely happy with this company. I was hired on right out of school, which was a huge relief to me. CLKTranscription was willing to train me, deal with my many mistakes, work around my schedule, and I am always paid on time. I feel extremely lucky to have found such a wonderful company!

Any Webmedx New Hires? - Posted By: EXMQER

I am interested in the current interview/testing/hiring process. I applied on-line and passed the mini-tests they give you there and heard from an admin assistant. She sent me a VERY long questionairre to fill out and turn in to the recruiter, along with my resume. I believe the next step is a phone interview.

Can anyone tell me about the interview and next steps in the process?

Thanks so much.


Which company has the most comprehensive (SM) - Posted By: Stressed

health insurance coverage?  Husband's insurance premiums almost doubled this month...ridiculous as our co-pays and deductibles all increased exponentially as well.  Soooo...right now I have a good paying job as an employee with a small national, but other than being an employee there are no benefits.

Can you all share with me how your health insurance benefits are, approx. cost for family with kids, and company?  As much as I like the company I'm with, I may have to start looking elsewhere.



When you leave a company, is your insurance canceled immediately? - Posted By: Soon to be ex-MQ

I'm assuming I'll still be getting my premium taken out of my check up to the end, so does the insurance go til the end of the month?  Want to make sure my daughter's dentist visit in Oct is covered, and 2 weeks notice would put me into October but I wonder if I should wait until after her appt for my last day.  Does anyone know? 

Oh yeah.... I got a new job!!!  I got a new job!!!
