seeking job info

I've been with a MTSO for nearly 5 years, but the account they have me on is becoming too hit and miss.

I'm looking for a position and hope to get recommendations, based upon the following:
1.  Part time only, and no weekends.
2.  A decent line pay for someone with nearly 30 years exp.
3.  Uses a C-phone or voice files (I do not have TransNet).

If anyone knows of a good MTSO, or even an individual looking for some help, please email me. I need some more steady or I'll be singing the Pay the Bill Blues.

Accupro--Seeking opinions

The response time has been slow so far.  I received testing materials directly from the recruiter via email 2 weeks after submitting my resume.  I returned the tests within 24 hours and waited another 2 weeks for a response.  I inquired via email and it took another week for her to respond.  I'm wondering if all this improves upon employment.  What are they like to work for?  Platform?  Communication?  Benefits?  Do they respond to employee questions in a timely manner?

TIA for answering.

Seeking answers from MTSOs

I graduated last year from one of the top 2 schools with an excellent grade. I decided to transcribe clinic notes and not acute care reports. When I began my first job, I jumped right into a backlogged account and worked every day for more than 8 hours (as an employee!!). I was taken off QA after 10 days although they said it would take at least a month and probably longer. I received raving reviews from my manager and all QA staff. Then they lost this big account, which I understand can happen. After that there was not enough work to go around. Several MTs left, which should have meant there would be enough work for the remaining MTs. What did they do? They hired several new MTs just in case they get a new account some day. Over the year I was there, a large number of the MTs always pitched in and worked overtime when there was a need to do so. I left because I could not make enough money. They did have a minimum line count, and if they had no work, then they did not pressure you to achieve it, but you also no longer received benefits that were based on that minimal line count.

The next company, which I am still, with promised during the initial phone interview, after passing all tests, that this would be a full-time position. Now, they have changed their plans, which I only found out because I kept on asking them when I would get more work. Again, I am receiving raving reviews about the quality of my work, and again, I was taken off QA after a week although they said it would be at least a month and probably longer.

I have been sending out resumes, but most of the time I do not even get a response. When I pass tests, I find out that they pay only 5 cpl as an IC or you need to invest in software, C-phone, long distance plan, or something else. The other day I get a response to my resume I sent for a job on one of these boards asking me if I am interested. I responded 5 minutes later and never heard anything again. The other day an MTSO called me and offered me a job at an acceptable cpl that would increase after off 100% QA. The contract does not mention the cpl going up and does not have a clear description whether the line is with or without blanks and/or headers, footers, etc. are counted. When I asked about these things in an email, the MTSO stopped communicating with me. Two weeks ago I tested and after submitting it, it said a recruiter will contact you shortly. I waited a week and then contacted the company, which told me there are no openings at the moment, but the website says to test if you are interested in a position and no inquiries should be sent before testing.

So here I am, with raving reviews of the quality of work I produce, having graduated with a high grade from one of the top 2 schools, wanting to work and deliver top quality. I was very excited when I graduated last year, but now I am disillusioned. All I want is a decent cpl, honest communication, pay to be on time, and a consistent workload. I do not mind working extra or learning new accounts.

My questions to all the MTSOs out there: Why can't you respond to a resume sent to you? Why do you promise something on the phone that does not show up in a contract and become mute when asked about it? Why can't you give someone who does not have several years of experience a chance? How are those MTs that go to an accredited school supposed to get experience if no one lets them work? Why do you offer a job and then never respond again? Why is it so hard to be open and honest? You started out without experience and possibly without formal training. Did someone give you that one opportunity that helped you launch your MT career, which led to being an MTSO? Well, what about offering someone an opportunity as you were offered?

In closing, please describe the ideal MT that you would hire.

Thank you. Please feel free to email me if you would like to.

KS seeking ex. Docuscribers - question. sm

I know MQ is major user of DQS, am hoping KS is picking up accounts from them.  I know MQ is losing some accounts, hopefully more and more to come. 

I stood up for MQ for a long time and just got tired of bending over for them.  Now I am sitting comfortably with another company, making good money and watching the demise of the demon (I hope).

Sorry -- Must have PMS or something this morning.  Will quit complaining and go to work now.

MTSOs seeking MTs for Sun-Thurs or Tues-Sat positions..sm
This question is for anyone who has ever been hired by an MTSO who advertised the Sun-Thur or Tues-Sat only schedules.  Can you tell me which companies (if any) that are willing to be a bit more flexible in this area?  I don't mind weekend coverage at all and actually prefer a day off through the week.  However, I don't think I could adhere to a schedule where I had to sacrifice every Saturday or every Sunday for an indefinite period of time.  I would be happy to work every other weekend or alternate Saturdays and Sundays, basically working one weekend day a week.  Or are most of the companies that advertise require their MTs to stick to one set schedule, no exceptions?  Thanks to anyone willing to take the time to respond! Your replies are appreciated!!
Seeking company that offers good benefits including insurance.
Ideally, I'd like to find a company that offers medical insurance at a reasonable cost for family (under $500 a month) and a decent line count rate. Anyone have any ideas on this. Thanks.
Any recent info on MedTrans Unlimited? newest archived info is 9 months old... m

Has anything changed in 9 months? Particular worries are the invoice/pay time; one post mentioned 2 to 3 week wait and another post stated 1 week. Info from the company states pay is sent out 10 days after the last day of the billing period, but we all know what is said and what is done isn't always the same. Another concern is the platform; some mentioned it was slow and cumbersome. They have 2 platforms from what I can gather.. Are they both slow? It seemed like certain specialties were done on certain platforms, or at least that is what I got out of the archives. I really hate to jump from the frying pan to the fire so any info would be VERY much appreciated.. the good, bad, and the ugly! TIA!!

Any Axolotl employees willing to share info., platform, ESL %, etc. All info greatly appreciated. sm

Along with the platform, ESL %, pay range, lpd required, split shift or 12-24 hour window available, I would be interested in knowing your personal experience with this company, what type of relationship you have with supervisors and other coworkers, etc.  Otherwise, the all the 411. 


Current info on Diskriter?? Past info was very mixed. Either MTs hated it or liked it, does anyone

love working there and why? Do you easily meet your incentive pay or as past people have said, the ESL are so bad that you never meet the line count. I need current and new information. Isnt there a company out there that has a handful of happy employees or does all of them have both the haters and lovers. It is so hard to sort out fact from fiction sometimes and all of us have different expectations. It kind of goes along with the one man's junk is another man's treasures theory, I suppose.

Any new info on Amphion? Archive search doesn't provide new info (sm)
