Northern Counties Secretarial Services - Minnesota

Accidentally posted this in the wrong forum, I believe, so am re-posting it here:

Anybody ever work for Northern Counties Secretarial Services in Minnesota in the 90s?  Used to be what seemed like a great company, but in the end, they did a few really good MTs dirty. 

Try Alpha-Best? (sm)
I know they'll bend over backwards to accommodate you, as the owner of the company is such a sweetie, and pays up to 11 cpl!

Any idea why companies want us to pay to work for them.  Instead of getting or using our own equipment, we have to use theirs, even  though it is the same??????


I worked for them for about 3 months and what rudeness I received! I was renting a computer from them and 3 or 4 different times it ended up with a virus. They basically blamed me for surfing when in fact I had only used it for work related searches. Anyway, long story short I sent it back and quit that same day. My home computer has never had the trouble that one did so I'm sure they didn't have an updated version of Norton. I surely wasn't getting paid to wait on them to try and fix it nor was I paid the 2 times I spent over an hour on the phone with them trying to get the virus out. I was blamed for their incompetence. I would rethink if I were you.
Yes, i work there.....nice company to work for.....challenging accounts....email me for more info
Alpha is great

Alpha is a great company.  I have worked with them for 2 years and have never had any problems with them.  They are VERY flexible with your hours, management is AWESOME and payroll is always on time.  I think you would be very happy there.

The one in LA Jolla California? 

What years? 


alpha scribe
Actually was at Arco/Rodeer/L and H between 1990-1999 but we did communicate quite often with those at Alpha Scribe and in fact used to go up there occasionally to learn new equipment, or actually help out, but during the day.

Stayed when we were bought out by Mequist in the last 90s, but I have now left Medquist for greener pastures.

looking for ophthalmic transcription work

I am a soon to be graduate of Career Step and prior to this worked 11 years for an ophthalmologist. I am looking to do ophthalmic transcription. Is there a company that specializes in ophthalmic transcription?

I don't work in a transcription office but I
certainly don't work in my living room or bedroom. I have a dedictated office in my home. You insult all home workes with such broad statements.
Anyone work for Hippocrates Transcription in NJ.

Anyone work for Northeast Transcription?
Positives?  Negatives?  Flexible with schedules?  Decent pay?  Someone else posted asking similar question on 09/24/2007, but it doesn't look like anyone responded. 
Transcription work is not a sure thing.

Physicians take vacations.  Physicians leave the practice.  Clients switch companies.  You cannot expect an MTSO to always have work when this is not the sort of business that you can promise anything. 

This profession is sort of like take it when you get it and not when it's convenient.  Whether you have your own accounts or work for a company, this still holds true. 

There are times when I see no end, and then there are times when I can take a deep breath and a break.  It's just the nature of the business.

Contract Transcriptionists & Freelance Transcription Services

Landmark Transcription/no work
This company really has nerve. They've posted a job ad, but they have not had work for their current MTs for weeks now. They lost a bunch of accounts, tried to shuffle their MTs to the accounts that were left, but there just is not enough work to go around. So, why post an ad when there are MTs without enough work every day of the week?
Toth Transcription-DO NOT WORK FOR THEM

It has been a week or so since anybody has posted anything, questions or otherwise, about Toth Transcription.  I wanted to get the message out there to anybody considering even contacting this husband and wife team, DO NOT CONTACT THEM.  If you do, you are entering at your own risk.  If you do, you better "scour" over the contract.  I am genuinely concerned and feel extremly bad for anybody that has or will fall prey to Toth Transcription. 

FACTS:  These people don't pay their MTs.  They will charge you about $100 to get set up on their system.  If they want to load PC Anwywhere or similar program on your computer, DON'T TAKE THE JOB.  You will have to constantly TRY to contact them whether it be by phone or e-mail just to get your paycheck.  Their excuses are "it must have gotten lost in the mail", "I mailed it yesterday, or I mailed it 2 days ago so you should get it any day now".  If you threaten to not turn in your work until you get paid, the husband will rip you a new %!# over the phone, and send threatening e-mails.  But, whether or not you turn in your work, you still won't get paid.  He tries his darndest to intimidate people.  I have known these people for a long time, and probably longer than most of you.  There is no communication between the husband and wife, and there will be none between them and you.

The husband files bankruptcy and uses it as an excuse not to pay his people.  He will only pay 5 cpl.  It is insane that they actually expect somebody to work for this amount of money, but then they won't pay you anyway. 

I can't stress enough that you are just asking for trouble if you go to work for them.  I have posted other messages, but have only gotten 2 reponses in my e-mail. 

Some posters said that their lawyers told them it would be a waste of time to sue them, as the legal fees would outweigh what Toth owes you.  The Toths know this, so that is why they don't care. I would pursue lawsuits anyway, just for the satisfaction of getting this so-called business shut down and preventing them from hurting other people.  They take advantage of anyone, especially newbies who are just trying to get their foot in the door. 

The husband cannot hold down a job of his own.  This is why he took control of what used to be his wife's business.  They live high on the hog, but they barely make their bills.  You are paying their bills for them.

NEWBIES: There are legitimate companies out there that hire newbies.  You have to look hard, but don't jump in with both feet without doing your research.  

If anybody has any questions about this, just post here.  I do check through the day.  If you do pursue any type of legal action, try to get as many people together as possible to do the same.  If you would rather e-mail me, just go to kahluasfight@yahoo.com. 







You will be verbally abused, e-mail or otherwise, by the husband.

Anyone here work for Hils transcription...

Work for Transcription Solutions
This maybe the 3rd time I have ever looked at this site, but was informed of comments and felt the need to post a reply, which I am sure I will regret posting. 1.  We changed our name as we changed our services to our clients (offering work flow platform) and felt Solutions was a better fit. 2.  Bounced checks have happened and have ALWAYS been delt with including any bank fees. This was NOT a common occurance and have often been when major clients have not paid their bill on time through our factoring company. 3.  Tom Weber was an employee with this company. Its a real shame as we are a different company in the way we choose to operate. We do pay hourly, but have zero tolerance for cheating (which used to bite me regularly). We do not test, as I hire experienced MTs and feel that it takes 30 days to see/test and do not judge on a report or 2. Also, I think testing is just a way of getting free work. We are not perfect and have made our mistakes (some mistakes were in the MTs hired) and have had a lot of growing pains, but we have done our very best to make it right as quickly as possible. Our MTs have PLENTY of work and are getting all the hours they want. So....to whoever did the posts, I am sorry you were wronged, but I do know you were taken care of financially as quickly as possible since I have not had any contact from anyone. Obviously, there are 20+ others out there very happy to work for us and often refer friends. To those who took the advice of the post and decided not to give us try, thats okay too, but too good to be true does not always apply and there are always 2 sides. All you had to do was ask. Thats all you will ever hear from me and I will not even look for responses to this post. Thank you for your time.
