I just got an email from them, they pay up to 8 cents a line, but it is based on a gross line.

I just had a very bad experience w/ RapidText Inc, of Newport Beach CA.  I'd avoid them like the plague.


Have just been hired by them.  What is their platform like?  Dictators?  Am looking at the QA penalties.  Any comment on those?  Good company to work for?  Thank you.
This is a great company...been with them for years. 
I was told that RapidTEXT, @ Newport Beach, CA, is going through some changes.  Not sure if this is a merger or what, but one person did lose his job recently.  I do not know the details. 
They used to be RapidText.
I used to work for them doing insurance transcription before I was an MT. Not to be confused with Rapid Transcript, by the way. Pay was always on time. Don't know anything about them post People Support, though.
I meant Rapidtext
My address IS correct, correction from prior post.
I got ahold of the CEO of that company.  She's investigating herself to see what's up.
Well, I'm already looking for other work.
Okay, thank you for your input.

I worked for those guys for two years and only had one check come late, which was during a switch in their payroll department.  I received profuse apologies for this as my check did not go to direct deposit as it was supposed to.  When I contacted them to find out what was going on, they cut a check and overnighted it to me.

These folks were great to me!  :)

RapidText Inc info
Could you give some solid details - I am curious because I was considering applying, however, I just heard from a friend who worked for them and she could not get paid for months. What was your experience?
Just wondering if RapidText n/m
does anybody have any info on PeopleSupport Rapidtext ouf of CA?
any info is appreciated.
Any info on PeopleSupport Rapidtext, Inc
in regards to accounts, pay on time, etc. TIA
Any information on Rapidtext, Inc? Do they pay on time, platform, etc.?

Didn't they recently acquire RapidText?

Are they U.S. based and do not outsource transcription out of U.S. ?

Yup. Wonder if they are getting desperate?
Silly...silly company
They have to be desperate, noone
if they have any smarts whatsoever. Their sign-on bonus is nothing more than a joke. Noone will ever work for them long enough to collect.
She must be getting desperate.

If it's who I'm thinking it is (same initials), people are probably starting to catch on that this company (which used to be somewhat good a few years ago) now stinks.

Almost desperate to get out...

I hate transcription. It is mind-numbingly boring. Every day I have to work I get depressed. I have to force myself to do anything. I have been doing this for over 25 years. I worked six months as an editor. I loved that job, but unfortunately it was for a truly awful company - Interpro - and they crapped on us and I left. There is an ad on the job board for an Editor at - can you believe it - 8 dollars an hour. How insulting! I am going to try to hang in there for another four years until I can retire at age 62. I have one idea that I am going to try on a part-time basis and if that works out maybe I can cut my hours. From my lips (or fingers) to God's ears. I am glad I didn't know when I was 45 or 50 that I would still be doing this work at this age.

Because they are desperate for MTs
Good Luck and the door closes on its own.
They probably know how desperate and
They probably know how desperate and
... but I would NEVER be desperate enough to move to a country that treats its women as *property*.
Transcend seems desperate
They have been advertizing like crazy, but why are they so picky?  You must work this......can't work that.....on and on, their ads drive me crazy!  Do they nit-pick their MTs too?
They're desperate. nm
Cause some people are so desperate sm
for work that the companies can bully them into working whatever hours they want. Sorry that happened to you!
Define desperate
I think it depends on how desperate you are for the experience.    I worked for a company out of North Carolina at an extraordinarily low line rate, but they were the only company who would hire me with no practical experience whatsoever. I knew I had to suck it up and deal with less than minimum wage for a while and just put my time in. Fortunately I had backup money so my mortgage did not go unpaid during this time frame.   If you are just trying to get anyone to hire you, then you might want to take it at least for a while.  Horrible is better than nothing, sometimes.
How about if I am desperate for experience?
I am only in the application and testing process, and I have been thinking that I should just take any job I can get.  Are you saying that you advise against SS under all circumstances?
Call me Desperate! What would you do.
I have 30 years experience as an MT specializing in Ops, very unhappy with the National I just started wtih this month.  The pay is 9 cpl but there have been so many variables, I have not been able to make any money.  I've been working part-time for this small MTSO as an IC at 9 cpl where I can easily achieve 300 lph.  I have been offered a position as an employee at 8.25 cpl, only benefits health and life insurance.  I initially declined saying I could take no less than 9 cpl, but now having second thoughts because of not making any money with the National who has excellent benefits.  What would you do.  Input pleeeeez.
I would like to get some feedback on whether or not I should give my current employer two weeks notice or just quit, effective immediately. Ordinarily I would always give two weeks but this situation is, I think, a bit different, so let me explain.

I've worked for this company for a number of years. For some time now I feel that the company has been trying to get me to quit (rather than firing me where they would have to pay unemployment). I know this sounds crazy, but I believe this is because I am too high a producer and they do not like paying me so much in terms of my benefits that are predicated on my daily production average. So, after a number of years of trying to slow me down by various means they tried the following: Rather than letting me type in the pool they began assigning me all the crappy, difficult jobs. When I asked about this they lied to me and told me they were not assigning my work but I know they are. Then when I still produced a lot, the person who runs the company started personally reviewing my work and picking it apart. I have always had 98+% on QA so my quality has always been there. Now I am getting nasty e-mails about some truly inconsequential mistake I made or telling me that I'm doing something the wrong way when, in fact, I had been instructed to do it this way, by this same person, for many years. I have been told that now, after so many years, all my work is being reviewed on a daily basis so that I do not continue to do these things. This has become a truly personal attack on me.

If I work for the two weeks after I give my notice, I doubt that I will see any of the money I make during this time. Over the summer I took, with their permission, some vacation in advance of accruing the time (they let people do that), so if I quit I would owe that money back. I have no problem with that, as that is only fair to them, but I have already worked enough this pay period so that they could just take this money I've already earned and we would be about even. If I work beyond this time I doubt I'd ever see the rest of the money.

I can't bear the thought of continuing to be subjected to this insulting person but want to do the right thing as an employee. I would never be able to go back to work there if I needed to, but I also cannot imaging ever wanting to with the way I have been treated. If I just quit, and did not work for the two weeks (assuming they would even want me to), I know I would be burning a bridge (probably already burned), but I would like to hear what others would do in my situation. It helps to get a fresh perspective, and I'm tired of agonizing over this.

I have two job offers and was thinking about trying one or both of them out, if possible, while I continued to work here, just doing the minimum I needed to do, until I decided what company to go with, since I realize it's not a good idea to leave a job until you have another one lined up. But even if these two other jobs were not right for me, they're making me so miserable that I don't think I could stay anyway. That being the case, I've thought about just quitting and then trying out the two other companies which would be a lot easier for me.

The options: 1) Give two weeks notice, but try out one or both of the other companies, and hope they pay me for the money I make in this period (minus what I owe them of course).
2) Quit effective immediately and try out one or both of the other companies.

What's the right thing to do????? Any thoughts appreciated.

I don't want to seem too pushy or to desperate (even though I am, lol) also another ? sm
I have an interview with another company tomorrow, I would like to wait on WebMedx, but how long can I ask the recruiter to wait on an answer 24-48 hours?

More Desperate Individuals
Diskriter is getting pretty desperate -
they are offshoring faster than your hands can type. They have lost a LOOOOAAADDD of transcribers and staff the past few months. Seems kind of odd that they are now willing to hire part timers.
spell: desperate ... desperado ...
Well, they must have mistaken me for a person who was desperate
I told them no thanks.  You would think that once they found an experienced MT, they would try to keep them instead of handing them crap.  Apparently, they cannot find anyone else because they have been calling me for weeks, but I was not available.  I decided to give them a try and look what they try to stiff me with.  Good grief.  Glad to be rid of this headache.  On to my next 4 job offers.
I am desperate for work, but I won't even touch that. nm
Unfortunately there are new grads out there desperate for a break and some may take it. :( nm
And just what question, pray tell, are you ever so desperate to ask?
That million dollar question that the MDI-MD posters are preventing you from asking?

You have our attention now.

You're in the limelight.

Fire away!!!

Honestly, sometimes the posters on this board are worse than toddlers tugging at their mothers' skirts for attention, lol!!!
Wow, they sound like a bunch of desperate stalkers!
Glad I don't work for them!
Do they really think we're desperate, apparently so. I have 13 years experience, they ask for tha
and they come back to you with an offer to start of 6 cpl and you can get incentives where you COULD reach as high as 8 cpl. I just want to laugh. I mean, they are kidding, right?? We are still in America where the cost of living has become sky high, housing, food, and especially gas has gone up, yet we are getting less. I dont get it.
Yeah, my thoughts exactly. Just another get-rich scheme, preying on desperate
MTs who want a light at their tunnel. Most likely just a train in this case and another way to fill someone else's pockets off your vulnerability, but that is just my negative opinion. Been there done that...
New, naive, desperate, carpal tunnel, slow transcriptionists... I don't know.
has anyone ever received a job offer from posting a resume on this site and receiving what they were asking for as far as pay?  I am asking for 12-14 cents.  Am I in a dream world?
Seeking information

I am seeking information regarding XXXXXX.  They have an ad on job board for an IC to work on a teaching facility multispecialty account.  Is anyone familiar with this account?  How difficult is it to make decent money,  and how are they to work for?  Also, would like to know about TransHealth.  If they pay 10 cpl for ESL account, how much do they start  at on their other accounts and how are they to work for.  Also looking at TransTech.  Do TransHealth and Transtech only do acute care?  Thanks.

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.
