Archives so old

Does anyone know why all the posts are so old whenever I want to research a company in the archives?  Almost all of them are from 2004 and very few from 2005.  If they were posted in 2005, then they are usually many months old.  Also why aren't they posted in chronological order with newest ones first?  Please help me understand this.  Thanks.

Yes they have paid MTs with bounced checks with every worthless excuse under the sun on several occasions among a multitude of other unacceptable business practices.  Please do a search in the archives. 
There is a lot in the archives about them.
All of them are still there in the archives. I even went back to reference some myself before even posting my questions.

how exactly do i get to the archives?  tks

How do I find out about a company from the archives?
Can someone tell me why I cannot access the archives any more? Why can I not research companies that are hiring through the archives? Is anyone else having this problem? Also is someone removing the responses to questions posed by people looking for information on certain companies? Just wondering if this is something I am doing wrong or if something new is going on or what. Thanks to anyone who can enlighten me.
MD-IT on archives?
I tried the archives and get nothing. I know there is another company with a similar name...?
Look in the archives. (nm)

Well I looked in archives and only saw one where the person was happy working for them. Somehow I don't think that's your point,so have you worked for them????
Archives are old

Maybe she wanted RECENT information.  The stuff in the archives tends to be fairly old.  I read it too when I was considering them last year. 

I don't know where the info comes from that they only have overflow accounts.  That is not the type of account that I am on with them.  The only regular time there is no work is Sunday.  The only other time there has been no work in the middle of the week was around the holidays when the clinic was closed at Christmas and New Years and most clinics had slow work then.

Bottom line, to the OP, you have to make your own decision.  If you get an offer and have a good feel about it, go for it.  If you don't have a good feel about it, then you need to listen to your instinct.  Good luck with whatever you decide.

Archives help!
Is there something I am doing wrong?  Whenever I do a company search, the only info I get is extremely old, like 5, 6, 7 years.  How do I get more up-to-date info? 
JLG not in archives
Is that a good thing or not. I thought she sounded good and I'll be making just as much per line as I did at MQ. The only difference is instead of Monday thru Friday days, I'll be working Sunday thru Thursday days. Pay dates are the same.
If it's the one in Wisconsin, all bad - see archives nm

Try searching archives.
I have posts in the archives, none of which SM

are favorable toward Diskriter, but not for the supposed reasons stated above.  This person is seriously misinformed about Diskriter offshoring at this time.  It is my understanding that a long time ago they offshored to the Caribbean islands but that is not happening any more and all the work is kept here in the U.S. now.

Whoever wrote the "Beware" post is not telling the truth.


check out archives
I did check archives but - sm

most over over 1-year-old posts.  Anything current?

A while ago there were some posts of people not getting paid and checks bouncing.  I would be careful and investigate.  I don't know much about them but it would be nice if they were a good company.

I just posted something a couple days ago asking about them, if you go almost all the way down to the bottom of this page it should still be there. I got 3 or 4 responses and it was mostly favorable info. So I think that might be the latest on them.  My name on here AvaMQ is behind the posts so it's in that general area. Good Luck!

Check the archives. nm
You need to check the archives.

A lot in the archives about Transend.

Have you checked the archives lately?? sm
All those negative posts, and there must have been hundreds, have been deleted. It ain't what you know ....
oops, archives LOL sorry nm
Yes, I am. And simply look at the archives. nm
Read the archives. Hardly a day goes by that

someone asks info on a company that was just discussed the day before.  There are other forums besides this one too where you can get info on companies.  Post your resume on the various job boards.  There are companies that do not post ads but hire from the resumes.   My current position I was hired from my resume and I have been offered a couple of other positions from companies who contacted me from my resume who did not post ads. 

I work for a good company and honestly they are not hiring.  Other MTs do seem to get upset when people will not tell them what company they work for.  I don't believe they are afraid of losing their job to someone else (at least for the most part I don't), but they don't want the company to overhire.  There are many posts on the boards about people not having work for days on end because companies are overhiring. 

Check the archives. Nothing has
varying rates. You have to wait 120 days to get it.  Don't know about the other company.  We are always having system problems at Transcend, even now is down again.  Beyond TXT goes down on a daily basis so be sure to be flexible and work around it. Poor sound quality.  You have to email tech for problems and they take usually a full day to get back to you, so that can cost money due to lost production.  Also, all accounts going to VR in the next several months, and Transcend will only pay you half your line count, usually 4 CPL, for VR.  On the positive side, pay is always on time and they have direct deposit.  You will learn a lot more about Transcend if you check the archives.  I have found all of it to be true.
I tried to look up MDI-MD in archives and evidently
you can't put initials in because it brought up nothing. But I was in a discussion last week about MDI-MD and I know they are IC. I thought there was also a post that said how much you get paid during training but I can't find it. If any MDI-MDers could answer this I would appreciate it. Is there a set amount they pay for training? Couldn't find it on website either. Thanks.

There are those who are extremely happy and others who have had bad experiences.
Check the archives. There is a lot
company.  Nothing has changed.
do a search in archives
there have been a lot of questions like this lately. It would be nice if everyone would remember this option first before cluttering up the board with blahblah and same old babble.
All you have to do is read the archives.
Overall it seems that most MTs are very happy.   BTW I am not a TT MT. 
I can't seem to find archives

listed like I used to.  have there been changes??

Yes. No. Search the archives. nm
You may want to do a search in the archives
I personally had a good experience with them, but do not currently work for them now.  They are employee status and paid what I would call fair in this market.  The platform was a little cumbersome, but not something you couldn't get used to if you worked on it everyday.  I also had where they changed the scheduled days immediately.  If the work is not there then I guess they want you to work when it is, and i found it hard to have a family life with that type of mentality.  I'll put it to you this way, they were not paying enough to have me flip-flop days.  Just some things to consider.  I was doing VR/straight typing.  I found out really quick that I did not like VR.  To each his own though. 
There are some posts in archives...sm
If you do a search above, you'll find some posts about them, but all from last year. Some confusion in the posts about whether it's a franchise co. or not, but info about pay, platform, etc.
Read through the archives. There have

been posts about them just above every well.  They are an Indian run company. 

There is a lot of stuff in the archives but
nothing good.  They are an Indian company with just a store front in the US. 
I looked in the Archives.
its in there.
no need for archives - scroll over to
Did you search the archives? sm
I did see one positive posting about the company. Maybe no news is good news! The post I saw did say it was a smaller company, so it might be that's it's too small for many people to have had experience there. Good luck!
Check the archives.

All you have to do is look back through the archives.

I had to laugh when I saw some positive posts this week or last, can't remember.  They sounded like they were written by the same person.

The CEO and his brother are in the business for the $$.  They have no clue about  the business.   The QA manager that was there when I was there was a joke, always sending out incorrect spellings on things.  Some of the accounts have the worst dictators I've ever seen and I do 85 to 90% ESLs.  The sound quality was terrible.   When I did QA the work I edited was horrible and they continued to make the same mistakes over and over, like typing same for postoperative diagnoses.  I was asked by someone if they offshored work and I said as bad as it was it is quite possible.  I keep hearing how they pay better than most but no one says how much.   It isn't enough whatever it is.  

There are much better companies out there.  Webmedx has 3 or 4 new accounts starting soon.   I haven't been there but about 3 weeks, but I am impressed with what I have seen and they pay well with the chance to early up to 2 cpl more with incentives. 

Benefits are very good, they have direct deposit and if it falls on a holiday you get paid early.  Six paid holidays, a week PTO that goes up based on years of employment.   I don't know insurance rates because I am not eligible yet, but they pay for things like life insurance, short and long-term disability, accidental death.  They offer paid training and you get 25% above our usual line rate for at least a week after that to compensate for having to learn a new account.

Their platform is Word-based and their Expander is Shorthand, though you may be able to use another, depending on if it will interface with their system.   It is a bit overwhelming at first, but by the third day of training I was pretty comfortable.   They also provide all equipment, though you do need high-speed internet - either DSL or cable, as it is a web-based system and you need to be on-line to work. 

P.S. You mentioned archives
when you searched.  I believe that will give you only older info.  Try searching without going into the archives - you'll find some more recent posts, some negative, some positive.  Just confirming again, though, that my experience has been very positive.
There is a bit info on them in the archives.

and see the various comments here .. this is the last company in the country I would ever accept a position with unless, of course, you enjoy being treated like a worker in Delhi. Oh yeah, and when the team leads are asked to post here to tell you how wonderful it is .. take that with a grain of salt too. You can do much better than DeVenture. We all can.
Look through the archives. Lots about them, all bad. nm
Read the archives. I did QA and did not like it.
