They are listed at the AAMT site, if that
means anything. The name Medical Records Corp was also connected to a company that was bought by MQ in the early days. That was a very good company. I can't find a website for this MRC out of MD, but I would be interested to hear anything you learn.
How soon after applying and taking test for Transtech to hear from them? Thanks.
Did anyone hear from AAmT aka Synthescribe and proceed on..Just curious
how it's going and if your set up to work with them etc. Considering going forward to check it out but wanted to check with others first. Thanks
Hopefully, you will hear back. Unfortunately, I immediately heard back from MD-IT
but somehow with over 16 years of experience, I blew the test.  I was soooo disappoionted and yet pretty stunned.  I am by no means perfect but I haven't flunked a test in years.  I expected it in my early years but not this far down the road. I was so confident and they will not tell you which part you did not pass and why so it really just blew my mind.  I must have been in shock for like two hours after I got the email. Oh well, someone will want me....hopefully.  I was thinking about OSi but I don't think I could take another rejection if I never heard back. 
Medware's test hold people back from applying.
That referred to the MT's applying where I was a recruiter a few years back not to my current te
AAmT (All American Medical Transcription) Okay. the ad is back with a different person. Is this one
Hopefully, they have fired the bad example of a recruiter that was on here and this one is legit. Please advise.

MTMTMTMTMTMT, did you ever hear back from them? nm
Anyone hear back from Milner


Did anyone hear back from Medscribe out of NJ??
I applied, got an email back, and have tried to respond but my emails keep getting kicked back telling me that mailbox does not accept spam or something like that.  Has anyone else had this happen, or get hired on? The lady's name was Margaret....Thanks.
Anyone hear back from Archivus? nm
How long does it take to hear back after testing? TIA nm
How long after you applied did you hear back? nm Thanks

Took 3-4 wks. a few months ago to hear back after testing. I was already in a new job by then. nm
Takes a lot of time to hear back
I was job hunting in July and had the same experience, no responses. It took weeks to start hearing back, then the responses started coming in. I even got some responses 2 or 3 months after applying. It just seems to take a long time right now. You have to be very patient.
took their test and waited for eight months to hear back from then sm
by that time I had two different jobs.  No the eight months is NOT A TYPO
Just applied with them. Patience, how long did it take for you to hear back from them?
Transform - Any1 hear back from them yet on their most recent ad?
I would LOVE to work for this company! 
I did finally hear back and did okay but I think I am done testing until I talk with someone about
what they are looking for.  I cant get the foot pedal to work with the voice so  it takes a lot of time to go back over and over the dictation.
I hear that Amphion is back on mandatory overtime again, so
they must have plenty of work if you can stand tons of emails.  For IC status, Advanced Transcription out of Oregon also seems to have plenty of work.
Anyone apply to recent CardioScribes ad and hear anything back? nm
Don't sweat it. Be glad you didn't hear back.
After testing for First Choice, can anyone tell me how long it takes to hear back? nm
Are you talking about the one with the 2 radiology jobs? I didn't hear back either...nm
Did any of us who left emails hear back from the MT who was highly recommending her
Anyone know how long it takes to hear back from Prescyse after taking the test?
Will they get back to you?
I believe AAMT guidelines is 65 chars. with spaces. Maybe go to aamt.org and see if you can
You are still wrong to thank your company on an MT site, appropriate is your site.
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. 
I worked in QA for Transcending back in 2000-2001. They were paying hourly back then. SM

The accounts weren't too horribly bad.  The reason I ended up leaving was because slowly but surely they began to inch closer and closer to paying QA by production.  When I first started, the quota was something like 30 reports a day.   We simply had to make sure that we QA'd all reports that were close to being out of TAT first and then do the rest.  Then, my supervisor left and they hired a new one who immediately called a big teleconference meeting and said we had to up production to 60 reports a day.  Then, they started counting lines.  Which was fine because they were still paying hourly.

Next, there was an MT who used VR software because she was blind - yes blind.  Again, when I first started, I was told we had to edit her entire reports because she used the VR software and we had to make sure that everything was correct and made sense.  Then, we are told only check the blanks.  I wasn't comfortable with that and I continued to completely proof every word.  Then I was called on the carpet not because I wasn't meeting the production quota, but because I was ONLY meeting the production quota.  I told them I was proofing all of the MT's work that used VR, I was told that no one ever told me to proof every word of the VR reports and that I needed to fill in blanks and move on.  When I voiced my concerns, I was told that was my job, to fill in blanks and I should move on and strive to product above the standards.  Next thing you know, rumors abounded about changing the QA staff to being paid on production.  So I left. 

There just seemed to me to be too little concern for quality and more emphasis on quantity and I just didn't want to be part of company who would take money out of my pocket just to line their own and that's what they were doing by putting QA on production.  I also am not comfortable with the job of QA being thought of as a blank filler.  There is much more to the QA profession than just simply filling in blanks. 

I don't know if Transcend ever did start paying QA by production, but I could see that the idea was being floated there.  Maybe there was a enough protest that they didn't change from hourly. 

Good luck to you!

Phoenix Medcom- Another apply a few months back, ask to take a test and never heard back??
I applied a month or two ago, received an email from someone asking if I would take a test and said she was getting ready to go on vacation for a week, so I hurried and immediately and told her I'd love to take the test. I never heard back. I waiting thinking she went on vacation and would contact me when she got back to do the test but nothing...very strange..Just wondered if this happened to anyone else.
Has everyone heard back from Keystrokes yet regarding the email we received a while back?
Just wandering why I haven't heard any response yet.
I sent them an email back in August and never heard back sm
Is this company on Long Island? I checked out their website and even tried calling once. Were you successful in contacting them? All i know is that the company is owned by some doctors.

Have you tried applying for

unemployment compensation while looking for a job?  It might help to alleviate some of the pressure if you have bills to pay and might prevent you from accepting the wrong job out of desperation.

Good luck to you. 

Try applying elsewhere. I have 8 yrs exp. and most
thanks, I was considering applying
Are you applying
to MD-IT?  All I know is I also am looking for info on this company, as they my clinic has outsourced all of our in-house transcription to them.  I have an opportunity to work for them, transcribing the same physicians/therapists that I do now.  However, they seem to not be too forthcoming with information.  I am a little leary to sign on with them, having been in-house for 14 years.  It is a little scary to me.  I do not want to sign on and then miss the opportunity for unemployment/COBRA for a while and just take a break and move on.  I don't know what to do here.  Many sleepless nights I'll tell ya that much.
Why are you considering applying to OSI?
Won't be applying there.

Why do companies even allow this? It only allows the lazy MTs to make more money, leaving the MTs that will actually do all types of work by all kinds of dictators to struggle to make their line counts.  This is why I am currently looking for a new job.  I am tired of the cherrypickers on my account who refuse to work the ESL docs.  You know what?  I don't like them any more than you do, but I still do it.  Why?  Because it is my job!  

Sorry, just makes me so angry! 

I think you might have better luck sending resumes to companies who are NOT posting ads on the Job Seekers board. Looking at the number of hits their ads are getting those companies are probably already getting flooded with resumes.
Applying MT
Because they know we seasoned MTs won't just settle. Too bad we can't organize all MTs to not settle.
applying MT
I believe that transcription companies and owners do not want to pay for real transcription quality and are willing to hire the ones that will accept the 0.3 cents for QA and the 0.7 and up to 0.825 per cpl. Where is the real appreciation for the excellent transcriptionists? It seems that Transcriptionist is viewed more as a money maker.
Hear, hear! (Or is it 'here, here?') LOL

I saw that and thought about applying.
Sylvan that's never been used, couldn't get it to load onto the computer, and couldn't get a refund for. I wouldn't want to use them again. I noticed using that software is one of the requirements.
