ATSI, formerly MT-World?
  Lots of work right now.  Pretty good accounts, not a lot of ESLs.  Direct deposit every 2 weeks.  Good work platform.  Some benefits.
Is MT-World the same as ATSI?
Would like more info on ATSITIA
Need info on ATSI aka MT-World. Thx

Any info on ATSI/MT-World please, sm
Was just offered a job with ATSI doing radiology.  They pay they offered is more than any company that I have been applying with has offered, even a lot more than the company I am currently working for.  I have been soooo stressed out with my current company lately that I need a better opportunity and I pray this is the deliverance that I have been asking for.  Any info would be greatly appreciated.  TIA!!!

I had previously posted asking for input on MT World, which is apparently the parent company or associated with ATSI.  Well, I got my answer and here's my experience:  After I submitted a resume, I received a test with a look forward to speaking with you  Fine - even though this is usually a flag (from my experience).  Took the test and received a phone call telling me I passed and that I would next receive an application, which after received would be followed by an interview.

In the meantime I asked for clarification about the weekend requirement:  Hours required, rate of pay, etc.  I was asked to call back, which I did.  After asking the question *three different ways* it was clear she was not going to answer the main question, which was:  If you are required to be available for 8 hours each weekend day, are you paid by the line or by the hour?  MTs, you know where I was going with this :) 

So I said, you are either unable to unwilling to answer this question, so I will withdraw my interest. 

I got the distinct impression this is something she/they are used to...

What I don't get is this:  Unless they expect you to be on call for 8 hours with no guarantee of a minimum earning per hour, why couldn't they simply answer this question?  Why take more of my time filling out an application, having a phone interview, etc., just to get this basic question answered?

And corporations wonder why they get a bad rap.



ATSI uses MT-World software. Pay offered was low for experience. nm
are there any companies who are reputable, mean what they say, do what they say, and
Are there any honest, reliable, trustworthy, respectable companies out there that put their money where their mouths are? I have been very let down twice now by two separate nationals, and am totally disheartened. I do a good job and that is all I want to do. What I expect from a company is for them to do what they say they will ... if they are going to train, then train ... if they are going to say they respond to your calls, respond ... if they say you will have returned reports edited and errors pointed out, send the edited reports with the corrections ... if they say they will give you a supervisor/lead/manager, present that person....if they say their tech department will help, does it always take 3-5 hours to solve a problem?

Honesty!! That is all I am asking for. Any companies out there that anyone would really say know what INTEGRITY means? If so, please, please let me know. :( Is it even worth it to have hope after struggling to polish skills via these new online schools, as I did? Is there anyone to trust out there? TRUST?
No for ethical and reputable
MT companies, it won't! When you uses something like autokeys or autocorrect, I really do not know how they are going to figure out what keys you actually hit to produce a word, phrase or sentence.
They are reputable. Pay always on time.
4 cpl editing, 8-9 cpl transcribing. Decent company. They are bringing all of their work back to USA, were offshoring to India, but that became a huge problem. Now, they are in the process of trying to bring it all back. Pretty upfront and honest people.

Are there any reputable companies
It is sad to me to see someone covering for the MTSOs.  They know they can get away with anything because they can get somebody else in five minutes or less.  As long as they have desperate fools willing to work and put up with them, things will never change.   
Reputable MT Companies???sm

Does anyone know any reputable MT companies to work for?  I have a prospect on a local group here, but just waiting on them to get ready to hire for the position.  I was promised I would be the first one called when the position comes available.  I am afraid to apply for something online because I don't want to get in a situation that is just as bad as MQ or worse. 

I also need flexibility because I have a 4-month-old infant and have to work my schedule around my husband's full-time job.  So, if anyone knows of any good places to work, drop me a line and let me know. 



No reputable company would allow
any MT to pick and choose the work they want to do. The company I work for would not tolerate that, which is why they are so popular. Work is assigned according to TAT unless there is a stat due. Army Brat must work for a terrible company if she/he is so paranoid about who gets what work.
no reputable company should ever sm
have an incident where there is a bounced check! Lots of places have financial problems but they don't let their payroll bounce. Sad state of affairs I'd say!
Find a reputable school
Hi, Shelley.

I am so sorry you got pulled in by TranSCAM. I agree with the other poster's info on contacting a lawyer and the BBB about them.

There really is no way to do OJT in this career anymore. The best way to get into transcription is through studying with a reputable school such as CareerStep. There are others....look through the posts on here to find schools that graduates recommend. Best of luck to you!
I didn't say the company was reputable. (sm)

It's one of the larger companies that used to be the apple of MTStars' eye until it started to offshore.  They would vigorously defend this company, and now -- nothing.

It's a big company, so I guess in some people's eyes, it's reputable.  When it was offered to me, I thought it was disgusting, and to me, the company lost all credibility. 

They hired another person to work on my account (a former employee of the customer), and when they told me I typed too fast for the account and that the new person wasn't getting many jobs, I finally had it and quit, never looked back and never regretted it.

I found a much better, much smaller company that I believe wouldn't tolerate this kind of behavior.  Bigger isn't always better.

Looking for a reputable company, preferably to do op reports..sm

I am currently with a company with whom I have been happy for the last few years but things seem to be changing. My account has been overstaffed and I have spent the last 45 minutes trying to dial in to my account but all lines are busy.  Starting out the day with this level of frustration is not healthy and for this reason along with others I may need to make a change. Can anyone give me any ideas of stable companies with plenty of work and good pay that do not require weekend work?  I have 30 years acute care experience and prefer op notes but am open to clinic work too. I try to do 1800-2000 lines a day, care about my work product and am a very reliable employee.  I simply need to make some steady money!  Thanks for any help or advice offered. 

I know of 2 MTs from reputable schools who started w/o the 2 year exp. nm
Find a reputable financial investment guy
And open a ROTH IRA.
Has anyone heard of SribeRight and is it a reputable company that will pay on time and have a lot of
work with benefits
I think you would be doing good to find a reputable company, much less by putting qualifiers
There is also the reputable company out of No. Carolina that's NOT the United Tran with the train
Reputable company w/ platform compatible w/ InstanText/Shorthand

Am heavily dependent on sophisticated Expanders that incorporate code script, like ShortHand and InstanText.  Can anyone recommend reputable employers whose platforms are compatible with these programs? 

Word ZPressed or Keystrokes? Any info on either company? I have heard both are reputable
What world is that? Wally World?
Heard they won a new bid for a womens' hospital in Oklahoma City, and cannot fill the positions.
Yes, MT-World software is affiliated with ATSI and Zylomed in Florida
Everyone there seems to be very nice and professional.  Payment is every two weeks and comes on time via mail. 
Anything on ATSI?
American Transcription Solutions.Inc. Out of florida.
Any information on this company is appreciated.  Line rate for typing and editing, platform, friendly staff, etc?  TIA
Does anyone know anything about American Transcription Solutions, Inc. located in Florida?  TIA!
line rate from what i understand varies a little by experience, but it is competitive from what i have seen..do not want to post what i am paid as my situation and experience may be differnet than yours..

the platform is pretty user friendly. unless you are working on the insourced work, which goes on that company's platform, ATSIs platform works with your own copy of microsoft word.

the people are very helpful and friendly. i have never been happier with a job choice. of course, everyone's experience will be different. i have seen a lot of negative things posted about ATSI on here, and I am not sure I understand as my experience has been totally different than what i have seen here
I've read old posts, but I was wondering if any recent MTs could fill me in on how they like working for this company.  I tested with them and am mostly curious on how the workload is and the platform.  Do you run out of work consistently, or is it just rarely?  Is the pay on time and how often?  Are you spending a lot of time on demographics?

Any help is greatly appreciated.  I have an interview this next week.
I tested for them also and they e-mailed me back and said I tested very well and wanted to set up an appointment. An appointment was set a couple days before the appointment I received another e-mail that said a client's start was delayed and they were were trying very hard to get them on board and would call me when they did. That was a week ago and I still haven't heard anything from them. Did you test for the discharge summary position? Thanks
Good luck!
Anyone have any info on ATSI, curious as to their average line rates.  I have over 15 years experience with Basic 4.  Thanks
Does anyone know anything about ATSI? nm

They hired me, but I have not been given any paperwork, rate pay, etc. Not so sure about this company. They seem nice, but they never return my phone calls. I am always having to call them to find out the status of my hiring status, etc. I am still waiting after 3 days.....
If I were you, I would not accept employment with them. They promise you the world up front and then they don't come through with their promises. They are a very misleading company if you ask me. They hired me a few weeks back and never discussed training, etc. and basically screwed around with me. I told them thanks but no thanks and quit before I even did any transcription for them. To be honest, I have heard more negative about this company than positive.
ATSI but
Not all the accounts and I can't recommend you go to work for them. I have worked them, I liked it when I was there, but you can search the archives for information about ATSI.
Here's a situation where you can believe the negatives about this company.  My story is similar to others' here.  ATSI is deceptive.

I've heard good things about this company lately, looking at what they are offering - impressive!  I also hear there is plenty of work and they only hire US MTs period, no deceptive off-shoring which is truly appreciated.  Anyone else interested in this company?


Anybody know about this company in Maryland, Aero Transcription Service, Inc?  TIA. Do they pay on time?  How is their platform?

earlier this year, supervisors were hired and fired again within a week; they had many issues starting up a big account, took months to get tech problems worked out. NOT a stable reliable service
ATSI ...sometimes the pay is late and not accurate. Supervisor does not give feedback, you can stay on QA for months. Not enough work...
I have been working with them for about a month now, and I really enjoy them. There is always plenty of work and everyone has been really nice.

Do yourself a favor.  RUN away from ATSI.  Their pay is late.  Their management turns over very quickly and they lie on a consistent basis.  Their business practices are unethical if not downright illegal.  Please, unless you are desperate...you owe it to yourself to try to find something better than these slimers.  I've been in transcription for 15+ years, and this is really scraping the bottom of the barrel for me.  I'm leaving as soon as I can get another job.  As a matter of fact, after this one, I'm leaving transcription altogether. 


Is this company good to work for? 

Is ATSI a good company to work for?
