Wondering if anyone ever heard of Teletype.  I saw their add on MTjobs about a month ago and wanted to apply but when I went back on in a day or two, their add was gone and has never returned. Does anyone know anything about the company or if they are still hiring.  I can't find a website or anything.  If anyone knows anything about this company, please post!

How did you hear of this company
Were you contacted by a friend on facebook perhaps?
I hear ya. Never worked for a company sm
who ran out of work so much in my life. Four accounts and no work again. It's so disgusting anymore. I am out of here as soon as I find something else.
Did anyone ever hear of this JRancour Company that is advertising for MTs. I think they are in


Great company and I hear that work will
soon be picking up. I was hired recently, too, and I am willing to wait on some more work just to have the nice people to work for. Also, they pay half of the social security tax, not half of your taxes. But compared to IC deductions, that is a big help.
Anyone ever hear of Rural Transcription Company

glad to hear there is still a good company out there...
Did anyone hear from MnD Scriberz? Any info on this company?
I hear you. I just tested for what I thought was a decent company....
After a ridiculously involved screening, passing all, and with more than 10 years exp, I was offered 7.5 to do operative reports! (and did I mention I also said I could work weekends!) Are they kidding?!?!
Anyone hear of a company in New Hampshire called TTS. Not much recently in
the archives about them.
Sorry to hear that. I talked with Ann a few times, and it sounded like a good company. nm

Anybody ever hear of a company called Specialized Information Management?
Do they hire at home ICs?
Now I hear this company plays games with the work flow when you
start getting a higher line count. This is not surprising. I have BTDT and don't want to go through it again. There are enough posts now for me to say I am just done with the whole thing altogether and I am not a happy camper! Thanks for your feedback here and below. Saved me some headaches!
Any body hear of a company in MA that is hiring editors for 3 cent a line? sm

I asking for someone else, the email was signed Jay

MT Recrutiers- ever hear of this transcription comany? Any info good or bad, new company? nm
Anyone that applied with Kathy Kirby hear anything yet? I am wondering how long it takes to hear a
response back
I said MAY NOT hear, didn't say you wouldn't hear. There is
a difference, and many people have said they knew they didn't do well on the tests, but still feel like they should have heard from companies and haven't. 
Hear, hear! (Or is it 'here, here?') LOL

Thanks! I'm glad to hear that, I didn't think anyone used it anymore! I'm glad to hear so
I'll definitely check them out!
Hear, hear! Read My Opinion's opinion.
Regarding Wondering's question, the company I work for is investing strongly in upgrading its MTs' and editors' skill levels (exactly what this says about need for us for ten years down the road I can't say). This morning I found an e-mail saying they would pay every one of us to attend an on-line class on making Expander macros to increase our productivity. Amazingly, I have to assume many employees were choosing not to attend the unpaid ones they had been offering...
I hear you.

And it ticks me off that they refer to these people as "medical editors."  If these people are medical editors, where are DC notes sent now, to GOD?

Just seems to me they're trying to reel people in by pumping up their egos, offering them jobs as "medical editors," when in fact they probably wouldn't qualify for job as a legitimate medical Editor with any other company.

Lofty titles don't mean much if your wallet is empty.


Would like to hear from other ST L MTs...

Hi, would love to network with St Louis MTs... I'm about an hour south... would love to work directly for the hospital, tired of services!!!


I hear you there.
That's also the ONLY reason I stuck with them. I have kids at home, at college and a husband who travels and makes a hell of a lot more than I do. Guess whose schedule is always getting stepped on through no fault of my own....that's right mine. And once I go live on DEP where they can track my every move I don't want to spend every day avoiding my phone. And I NEVER received any questionaire from them asking what my needs were. And I answered the phone and it was just to tell me the packet was in the mail.e
From what I hear about OSi
it is the same as always, amazingly unqualified people in charge but if you don't mind that and the fact they send jobs overseas while some MTs sit here twiddling their thumbs go for it.
Because you will never hear the same
If you can't learn their voices and genuflections, how can you build up speed?
Since when? From what I hear,
I hear you!
I can't seem to make any money on this platform and I've been here almost 1 year! The dictators are horrible -99% ESL.
Where did you hear about them? nm
you might not want to hear this, but

Let me first say that I believe that there is a reason for people phrasing things a certain way and not getting into the specifics...... probably because it would take entirely too long to do!!! For instance, when I first read the part about does Spheris offer a computer, before I even read the response, the FIRST THING that entered my mind was Yep, and heartache too! only to open up the thread and see it there!! How funny!!

I would be glad to tell you at least a couple of reasons why I encountered heartache. And please, I know that there are some that are reading this that work for the company and if you have not had the experience I had, please do not insult me nor my intelligence by making idiotic comments that have nothing to do with my individual experience, which you most certainly would not know about unless you HAPPEN TO BE me!

Anyhow, I worked for Spheris for aprx three weeks. During that time, I was informed, only after I had accepted the job, mind you, that if my QA was not 98% in ( I believe) five days, that I would be fired. Now, mind you, I am an experienced transcriptionist, but when you have had several jobs that teach and do things differently, it is kind of hard to try to reprogram your mind in five days! By the fourth day I was stressed out and making more mistakes than I ordinarily would have. However, I did make the 98%. Well, after that, I was finding that I was ALWAYS short of work and on Mondays, I was lucky if I got one note at all. Yes, paycheck was horrible. Well, the last straw for me was when they magically decided to trim down the pay for everyone on that specific account. Not sure if it was across the whole company board or not. I finally had had enough harrassment, lies, and disappointment, and it only took me three weeks to get there!

Anyhow, I say that to say this. All of us are  grown. We know what you need and what we don't, what we can handle, and what we can't. Ultimately, we have to make the decision and live with it. I wish all who happen to work there all the best, and hopefully things are different now.

Be Blessed!!!

I hear you...and ...
it is not just in our field it's our clothes, our cars, our applicances, just about everything.  Look at the tag on a garmet or picture frame, or stuffed animal you have.  What does it say?....this is horrific for the future of this country!!
I hear ya.
I worked for them last year on radiology account. Pay is very slow....never know when you will get a check. I had to call twice for W2 this year. Quit last christmas because check should have received prior to Thanksgiving was mailed after Thanksgiving, no phone call, no email, nothing just mail checks out late. Require high degree of accuracy from MTs, but office people, that is another matter.
Sorry to hear about that.
How long have you had the computer?  Is there any way you can bring it back and at least get part of your money back?  Wow.  Sorry to hear about what happened.
Where did you hear about this?
I work for Amphion and haven't heard anything about it???? Are they telling you this or did you find out some other way? Just curious as to what the plans are. I've only been there 1-1/2 months but have been pretty happy and satisfied so far.....
I hear ya! I am right here with you. sm
Melissa is my manager too. They could have let us know a long time ago. They knew... what about the 4-6 months they were 'investigating options'... they didn't have the balls to tell us then that we should start looking? Such crap! I'll work with you to do anything we can to get them off the map. We should email the clients!!
I hear ya! -
Been at TL, then MQ for 15 years. That makes it tough. But with the changes, this is definitely not going to work out long term. Good luck to you!
Any one hear of CMT?

Anyone ever hear of CMT.  I think they are in 813 area code somewhere.  Thanks.

Hear anything yet?
I was considering applying for part time work as well.  Have you heard anything yet?
How do you hear anything there? sm
I've been there nearly a year and hear absolutely nothing from anyone! No communication whatsoever. At first it was strange as I came from a company who emailed us multiple times daily, switching to nothing. Now I'm kind of used to it I guess. I do wonder how anyone knows anything there as there are no emails!??
Hear hear! (sm)

Actually would like to hear from

on how it is to work for Precyse at this time.  Thanks!

You are better off when you hear
are receiving the pay on time.  That's all that really matters.  If you are hearing negatives then you need more training.  If all is quiet then usually all is well.  As for the coffee mug... well... I'm at a loss for words.   I don't need a coffee mug to fill me.  More money would be great but there's always someone out there who will work for cheaper in any industry not just this one.  Maybe you shoud go into journalism.  However, when you write a book, usually you'll need an Editor and from what I understand they are brash as well.  Find new clients/jobs because dwelling and writing stories like this will not gain you the attention you obviously require.  JMO.  Good luck in your endeavors. 
sorry to hear that

good luck to you guys.


Then I will have to hear it that way. . .
from the person who said I was off the account. If that was you, you need to e-mail me.
Hey, Im sorry to hear...
about that. I know when reputable people start leaving a company, you cant help for feeling helpless and antsy.
If you don't do well you may never hear, but

response time can vary depending on if they are actively hiring and how many resumes/tests they have gotten.   The longest I've ever had to wait was 2 days.  

where did you hear about pay cut?
just curious
I hear ya!
I do ebay part time selling items purchased at yard sales and make more there than being an MT, go figure!
When did you hear that?
I left a message this morning, but have not heard from anybody. I thought I was doing okay. I always met my TAT.
I hear ya! sm
I am currently putting out resumes and am hoping and praying that I get answers soon. The only reason I'm still there is because I need the insurance at the moment, and the money until something else comes along. Kudos to you for getting out when you did. You made the best move you could have regarding SPi. I desperately hope to be out of there soon.
wow. do you hear yourself?
BIG HUG, feel better.
I am sorry to hear that -
sad enough MTs are getting paid such low wages and this MTSO cannot or will not pay their help? whew! that's pretty bad.
Anyone hear anything about.......
Verbatim Medical Transcription out of NY?  Thanks for your help!
