Diskriter MTs who have recently left... sm

I am also considering leaving.  Wondering if you could share your biggest reasons you left and where you are going and if you think the new place is better, same, worse.  Scared to make the big jump, but so fed up with the new system and management style lately.  Feel free to email if you don't feel comfortable posting here.

I just recently left
They changed accounts on me all the time - they overhire and then we ended up with no work. 
Probably the one who left and came back recently
Heard she was planning to leave again.
MAke that 499. I recently left KS and
now work for a company with less than 100 MTs.  Our insurance is much better than what KS has and their premium is less than half, plus the company offers free short and long-term disability, free life insurance, and other perks.  If a much smaller company can offer an affordable insurance than a company as long as KS should be able to.  I know they said the problem is that most MTs aren't interested, but out of 500, I'm sure at least 70 of those are interested in insurance. 
I left recently. There were days when there was NO

work - not low - NO work on one of my accounts.  This was over a period of a couple of months before I left, no holidays to account for it.  There was usually enough work on my secondary account, but it was not a user friendly account and it was very hard to get lines.

KS had no system in place for you to see what the work load was like (at least on my accounts) so I don't know what things looked like on other accounts.

Anyone currently at Alltype or recently left?
I'm trying to find current information on Alltype. I did the search and all my hits are from 2005, 2006, some 2007.  Does anyone have any current information on this company?  Thanks in advance. 
Wonder if that's why a coordinator recently left abruptly
That happened with a day or two notice, and the leads were dumped with no notice at all. Wonder if she knew what was going down or what is about to go down and decided to leave because of it?
I worked for them recently for a few weeks and left because of SM
low/no work. No hard feelings.
Has anyone recently left Futurenet Tech due to their lack of work over the past several weeks? nm
I just left Diskriter a month ago

and had some unused PTO.  Anybody know how long I'll have to wait to get this? I tried to e-mail payroll to ask, but it won't go through because it's not an internal e-mail.  Thanks for any information...


Has anyone here left Trans-Tech or Diskriter, and if
Diskriter - interested in talking to people who left. SM
I am presently working for another company and am somewhat satisfied.  Am considering Diskriter.  I do not want to make a wrong decision.  If you worked there and left, please let me know if you would be willing to give me some information (bad or good).  I know people hesitate to get into specifics on this forum - email me and I will contact you.  I am just so hesitant to make another change.
Has anyone ever left Keystrokes and gone back? I left a few months ago and realize that I made a


It is as simple as filling out a form. I did it when I left an MTSO and when I left sm
a non-MT position at a company years ago.

What company? I did not know that any of them offer 401K anymore.
Has been down a lot recently, but..
only for very short periods at a time, not sure if they're doing upgrades or what.  Could also be weather-related with the terrible tornadoes this week in parts of the country.  You just have to be patient and adjust your schedule slightly when it happens. I love the BeyondTxt platform, it's the easiest I've worked on.  IMO, MDI-FL is a very good company, and I can't say that about many out there these days, so was worth it for me.
recently went to an HSA
and went IC.
Actually some of us are ICs. Recently ...
MDI was only hiring ICs with SE status after so many days or months. So there are some ICs that were with MDI.

In my meeting CB said that Transcend had IC, SE and employee and the usual case by case. I think she wrongfully mislead the person who asked this question because that was the first I had heard of their being SE status at Transcend.
I have not had issues until recently and
with you I would; however, I don't! FYI, I am dealing with my issues and if they are not resolved to my satisfaction, I will leave. Thanks for your concern and have a great day! DVW
Recently started too
Flexible schedule but you need to decide what your hours are and commit to them. Benefits granted at 32 hours. Plenty of work. Really good, patient and supportive people. Training with guaranteed pay. Smooth, easy and fast startup. Good, high-tech platform.
There was recently a big campaign on
to try to get MLS who were smart enough to quit Transcend before, to come back to Transcend because of all the recent *improvements* the company claimed they made.  I wonder how many of those did come back and how many are happy that they came back did versus how many have quit again or are ready to quit again.
Hired recently for 0.825 cpl.
Duh..I until recently was an Ochsner MT and still

geez... get your facts straight

I see, yea, happened again recently with someone in QA and
today with a wonderful coordinator, seems very unstable.  I just don't want to jump from the frying pan into the fire.
Well, I started recently

and I'm only getting 8.5 c.  I'm FT, acute care and do the weekend.  And I have 18 years experience with acute care.  That totally sucks. I'm so depressed now. I wish I would have never read this whole thread. 

Have been postson it recently. I know you have to
train in house for a week or two - I believe two? Which was totally not part of my game plan anymore! Yuck!
As recently as 2 months ago, they are SM
still selling you that foot pedal (that you pay full purchase price for and then in the contract it says you must return WHAT YOU PAID FOR when you leave them) and they have the same pay scale they did 3-4 years ago.  They still tend to prey mostly on new-ish transcriptionists who don't know any better.  Other than the person recruiting, nothing has changed about Medscribe in Jacksonville, FL.
Yes it has happened recently, and sm
people have been posting about them paying late & shorting checks for 2 years now. How they are still getting away with this?
We hav recently answered these
Look on page 2,3,4,5 etc...
Try Breitner out of N.Y.- ran ad recently
Took that test recently
and it did not require a foot pedal.  The test I took was pretty much multiple choice and spelling corrections.   But yours might be set up differently. 
There was talk about them recently, but again (sm)
They are notoriously bad about paying and have been for years. They misrepresent whether they pay for spaces or not, and they pay when they feel like it.  I waited months for payment back when I worked for them a few years ago.
Started recently

Lots of work.  Very nice people to work for! Platform is easy to work on.

What do you mean "until very recently"?
They haven't done ANYTHING to prevent it!!!!!! In fact, they encourage it!!!!!!!!!
I do too, and they helped me recently
when I had a low-virtual memory problem and I wasn't savvy enough to know what to do. Busy as they are, they didn't make me feel stupid for needing help with it.
Who is the too? I've seen ads recently for JLG. They
do disappear for a while and then pop up again.  For a while they had recruiters, maybe they hired from the posted resumes, maybe the hired locally. 
I worked there very recently
I worked for Precyse for 6 months. In the beginning, workflow was great. I don't know what happened between then and now, but I was lucky to get 50 hours for a 2-week pay period. When work is low, you usually can't work on your secondary because their work is low also and they don't want to take away from the primary MTs. That leaves no room open to make up time. Every pay period, I had to use whatever was in my PTO account for the missing money.

I actually had 4 different accounts I was doing at one time to keep busy, so I should have been considered on the SWAT team as far as that goes...lol.

It is a very nice company with wonderful people, but my main issue is feeding my kids and helping my husband with the bills, so I took my 10 years' experience elsewhere and am very, very happy.
Recently purchased . . .
They were also recently purchased by Nuance/Dictaphone. Strangely enough, while some of the accounts are with eScription, Nuance is the company that created Dragon Naturally Speaking so I wonder if there will be some sort of marriage along those lines in the future as well.
How long ago was that, recently?NM
I just recently interviewed with them.
This was for acute care: Base pay was 8 cpl, 65 character line with spaces, goes up to 8.75 for 1600+ lines a day. There's a $1000 sign on bonus, paid at $100 per paycheck. You have to be there a year before you get any vacation time, which is 2 weeks. No holiday pay.
If you just did this fairly recently..
Please be patient. Management is currently moving into a new office and it could be disrupting the phones/e-mails. I would give it a few more days. I work for them typing radiology and absolutely love it!
Just started recently as an IC (sm)
I recently took an IC position and needless to say am very, very impressed with the way they operate.  The training was excellent, communication with them has been excellent.  If an IC, you send your availability and it can change from week to week.  Pay is comparable to other companies out there.  They seem to be a very straightforward and honest company.
I recently started a new job and was getting (sm)
almost exclusively consults. I do enjoy them, OPs are my first love though. I just asked them if OPs could be included in my pooling and they did. I also get other work types. Only fair that we all share. I wouldn't appreciate you walking into this company and taking all the OPs off the top.

I know there are some people who don't like OPs or have had so little experience they aren't very quick at them. If that is the case and they want to skip them (with the companies permission) GREAT. More for the rest of us.

Bottom line is, you type what they need and when they need it or they may not need you anymore. Unless you had an agreement before hiring, this is only fair.
Sorry I don't know about recently. Just what I've
I just recently accepted...
A position with them.  Did you interview with them, and ask these questions?  It is supposed to be a good company to work for.  Their QA is supposed to be good; I heard their strict, but you will learn things quick.  There line count is a daily 1200.  As far as the hours worked, they expect you to work your full shift; this is very important to them; they strive on dependability and quality.  You can E-mail if you wish.
Worked there recently, not know.
People are very nice, though disorganized.  Frequently having to resend work.  Pay average to maybe a little better than average.  Chartscript platform.  Download work via DVI and then can work off-line so for now dial-up okay.  QA  very tough, not rude, just sticklers.  I felt like I would never get it right and it wasn't so much I was wrong, just wasn't the way they wanted it so some adjustment there. 
I have only recently heard of them
A couple of friends started working there and it sounds like a good place. They are on escription platform on an account in Oregon at the moment. They are allowed to cherry pick the reports they want to do. Pay is reasonable for escription.

If my current job does not pan out, I am leaning heavily to checking out employement at Proveros.
Recently hired (sm)
They were slow with me too, but I just kept calling every day and letting them know I had to work - Becky is the best person - She will always answer your emails and get things done. she did for me! They are great but you have to be proactive and it works! Good Luck! I'm completely content.....Hope this helps!!
Nuance just recently
purchased Focus Infomatics.  They also purchased Dictaphone a while back.
Don't know anything, but recently sent them a resume
I have not heard back yet.  Do you know anything?
I'm a recently hired IC for MDI
I just started with them recently
and can say, this pay information is less than what I was offered.

So far, I've been extremely pleased with them. They've bent over backwards with compensation and encouragement. MUCH nicer than any other company I've worked with and after 20+ years, I think I have a good point of reference. Try them, you might just be pleasantly surprised.
I just recently started with DSG
I have quite a few ESL dictators but assumed this was the norm.
