TransTech - corrected post
I was offered a position with Transtech today. The recruiter gave me a lot of info, but I completely drew a blank regarding any questions I had. I work for MQ now, and am looking to leave because I believe it is only going to get worse, and I can't take any more cuts in pay. So here goes:
1. Do they do ASR, and if so, what is their percentage of line rate (i.e., Medquist currently pays 70%).
2. Do they pay any shift differential?
3. Do they allow split shifts or 10 hour shifts for 4 days if 1 is a weekend day?
4. As far as line rate, they offered me 1.25 cents less a line than I am currently making, but their incentive program, from what I understood, seems pretty decent.
5. Are they easy to work with, QA, supervisors, etc.
Any and all information anyone can provide would be appreciated. This is a big decision I need to make by Monday, and am a little nervous, but think I would like to take the leap!
I corrected it immediately in my lower post....nm
OTI - Had us pay big $$$ for equipment and then "oops" changed their mind
I think I would rather be corrected by the
dictator that some of the nit-picking QA people who check every a/and/the, every comma, etc; especially love those QA people who believe their way is the only way and it is wrong if they say it is. These are the kind of companies that I want to stay completely away from. It's sad though because some of the companies are probably very good to work for otherwise.
What are you being corrected on?? If it
is account specifics, bone up on them. If it is your style of transcription, i.e., they are following BOS and you aren't, or the other way around. If it is simple mistakes, then take the time to proof your work.
I stand corrected...
I see. I stand corrected.
Ahh, I stand corrected. nm
Corrected mistakes - sm
I agree with you about the stupid mistakes that are corrected by the dictator. I feel terrible when the doctor spells out BOWEL or other simple words. The MTs who type like that are a disgrace to the profession. You HAVE to pay attention to every word, know the difference between ileum and ilium, in these diagnostic imaging reports. I don't blame the radiologist for being upset - and the MT deserved being yelled at for it. There is NO excuse. I'm ashamed everytime I have a dictator spell out something so simple, but I do appreciate the occasional spelling of an obscure illness, etc., although I don't trust their spelling, I always check it myself, but their spelling is a help to looking it up. Why throw stones about the offshore MTs when there are MTs here just as bad, or worse? No wonder accounts are constantly changing over to other companies.
Your'e right, the errors have been corrected.
It was written in a fit of passion after just learning that I lost my job, excuse me. I hope you are never put in this position and don't ever get emotional about losing your job. I am sure you can walk on water also.
I stand corrected
No, I did not know many of the things you say here. The only pharmacy techs I know are people with very little training, not like anything you mention, and that does frighten me I must admit.
I do know that many of the newbies seem to have a poor work ethic and don't seem to have had very much training. I see that where I work. And I do know someone who had been in a mentoring program offered by a national and had a horrible experience and barely kept herself alive on what she made.
I did not know the other things you mentioned. I am glad you filled me in on these things. I want to learn all I can about our situation. I welcome feedback and I sure wish the things you mentioned were discussed here. I'd be grateful if you could advise me where to turn to find out such things and keep track of what is really going on, because I apparently am not getting the whole story. I'd also be interested in your ideas for what to do as you seem to know what you're talking about.
I apologize if I offended you or anyone else.
i corrected myself. PAY ATTENTION LOL
oh - I stand corrected. So who's LK?
I would rather be corrected than look too stupid. sm
Maybe that poster or emailer or whatever was trying to help the poster not look bad?
I am playing devil's advocate I guess.
I stand corrected.....sm
The M-F schedule was not an option when I hired, but that may have just been with the account I hired for.
yes, I meant between sentences, not words. See what working all hours of the day does to you?
Then I stand corrected.
Thanks for the clarification.
Execuscribe - I stand corrected
Thank you for pointing out actual fraud amount. I stand corrected. Article states $379,968. Kodak alleged near $500k. It was $1.36 million and $632,277 that was ordered to be paid by Linda and husband for damages stemming from the convicted fraud.
And again, you are correct in that it was not Execuscribe by that name in these particular convictions, but former company name of Emtex - whose assets were then acquired by Execuscribe at a deflated value, and then quickly transferred those Execuscribe stocks to her sons -- which generated a new action, and was declared null and void by the court in an an attempt to "hinger, delay or defraud" her creditors. So, yes, Execuscribe was named in this court action.
Maybe I'm off by a few years -- but I remember this business being Emtex, Executive Secretarial, and now Execuscribe. That's SEVERAL names. If I'm wrong on that - sorry. But my point is, one GOOD name should carry you through your whole professional life, don't you think?
I stand corrected and apologize to OSi
And, love the red coffee cup and candy.
Look above, I corrected myself, how rude people are here.nm
You're right, I stand corrected.
I did not accept the offer as I had much more pride and hope for the profession I have chosen.
Also, my reply was not a company bash session and it was entirely professional. I point that out as my professional pride is the reason I declined the offer from Shapin, which was made by a woman who seemed proud of low quality and the insult they are making to our profession.
Now, I can almost promise that no one will post a professional response that would agree with you. Any real professional would never accept the positions they hire for, unless they have drastically changed. And if they HAVE drastically changed, I definitely take back all I say and hope for the best for them and their employees.
I stand corrected. It is HIPAA
Doctors would be okay if you corrected your sentence LOL
I stand corrected. Guess all accounts are not
created equal and sounds like you have a good one.
You're right - I stand corrected. So much for *rules* NM
I stand corrected. That's good to know. I have found them to be fair also.
Well I just re-sent my resume to the corrected email address he gave.
I just got it back saying it is undeliverable. Makes me wonder what type of company this is if they can't get their email straight.
Sure I got the email, I stand corrected. Three titled employees are listed & there is one more
that simply has not been announced yet. I will say again, could be nothing at all, could just be a change of guard. Didn't say whatever was going on was good or bad, but wondered what is going on. I will be the first to say change is often a very, very good thing and I am hoping for good!
My post should say the post above not the post below, Sheryl's post to be specific. nm

Read Spherson's post below, who admits, in the post, they do pay it.
Peachy, your post is interesting, but my post now is irrelevent but
A few weeks ago I went to my clinic where they had recently implemented EHR or EMR, whichever you call it, and the doctor's back was to me the whole time he and I conversed because his nose was stuck in his laptop. To me, it felt a little more impersonal, but I understand he was doing what he had to do, but it seems like the bedside manner may go to the wayside if the doctors can't even look at you when they are asking you questions or you are speaking to him/her. I know this is relevant to your original post, but just an interesting fact that I had not anticipated. Anyone else experience this?
This is why I NEVER post my cpl. I'll post the range of
what the company pays, but NEVER what I make. I know that I make more than probably 70% of the people there, because they know I produce a client ready report and that I can do anything they throw at me. We don't have levels, but I guess if we did I'd be at the highest level. Telling how much you make isn't so bad, but when people know what company you work for and then what you make that isn't a good combination. The ONLY people I have ever discussed what I make with, are my husband and my MTSO owner. Talking about your salary/pay is enough to get your fired in lots of companies.

This post is in regard to the post w/ the heading below
Nothing is closed. Anyone free to post or not post.
One post was another "run" type of post and the
the recruiter. Once you are in with the company, the recruiter has nothing to do with you or your job. I want specifics about problems with THE JOB, not the recruiter. Specifics such as no or late checks, line counts being messed up, no work, taking bennies away with no explanation. Things that matter, not the recruiter.
everytime you post, where ever you post
unless you go through an anonymizer, your IP address can be traced back to you, even through the guises of this web site. There are web sites you can find on the internet to do this for you, or if you are 18 years old and like to hack, it's an easy enough thing to do.
I post a pay range, DOE; however, most don't post..
I wish some MTs would start thinking about the business aspect of the industry. For example, this is a public site, so go to Google or another search engine and type [the co's name] and per line, and voila! now everyone knows how much you pay your MTs.
Post removed, you can re-post.
No, after I read a followup yesterday that said there were apologies and answered Michelle, I realized that and someone said to just get back to work and they were right.. even an apology was too much, plus it would look like I was just tagging along after JMO, which is what you are accusing me of now.
I just didn't understand where the posts went, it was odd, and I wanted to reiterate some things (the point I mentioned earlier, about seeing BOTH sides), but I see it really doesn't matter WHAT I say, you've already made up your mind about me and my motivations without even knowing me. Why am I explaining myself to you? I dunno.
It doesn't matter. Good luck to you and don't worry, God will take care of/deal with me, and I ask him to bless you all too.:)
TO POST ABOVE, AT MQ 6 YRS....sm
Would you please e-mail me at email@example.com. I "really" need information.
This post should have gone under OP.

Oh my.....I didn't know Wal-Mart had "greaters". I thought they were greeters! I am sure they are hiring though so you should do well there.
Why don't you sign your posts? Are you also the one that said SoftScript is the worst? Wow....there a lot of worsts out there. Guess we will all starve.
Will you post when you do?
Are you a SS transcriptionist? Will you post your acknowledgement of e-mail?
It gives YOU something to post about right?!
What else would you post about?! LOL
