I guess all their VR editors are only working to fine tune dictators so future work can then be sent to India. I knew there was a reason I didn't trust them & am very glad I listened to my instincts.

Just am glad I was able to get mine in time
I started back doing the same hospital after 1 company lost and I had no idea where it went - thank goodness at that time we were able to ask and I did get the same hospital I have now worked for for about 20 years. I think again you are being overbearing on these rules. Privacy is 1 thing but your rules are too much. It does not hurt at all to ask so a person can find a certain place they worked for in the past. I will pass on the information you have barred.
Worked there for a very short time. Glad to be gone.
I'm glad they pay you on time. When I worked there, they frequently "fudged" sm
on the date they would mail the checks out. In my contract, it stated that they would be mailed from Oldsmar or Tampa (I cannot remember), and they would adjust the postage meter to read the date it was supposed to be sent out, but then the postmark from the post office would be several days later.
My experience was much like the other posters. They hired me at 10 cents per gross line and gave me a crappy account. I was switched to a clinic account, and I was making lines hand over fist, but then they switched me back to the crappy account. And when work would dry up, I'd call and Crystal would just laugh and tell me to take the day off.
I'm glad if they had improved.
Of course we do. This will make time #5 that I do just that. Glad you have good luck.
Not everybody does. Ummm...you do know you don't always get what you ask for/want, right? And if you try sometimes, you still don't get what you need.
phew...i'm glad it wasn't just me, no more wasting time on this!
You sound like an ex-friend I used to have that was on a high horse all the time. BOY am I glad I
She was always so quick to point out everyone's faults, preaching about what you SHOULD be doing, while at the same time, doing everything wrong herself. I believe that is why she has no friends. People don't like to be around that.
Better be glad you got the easier dictators soon, because you're time is coming for the ^^^REAL^^
dictators! Be glad you got off now. I wondered where my better dictators went the last week or so !!!!! Lucky you !!!!!
I can always tell when the TT favorite MT's are off, because I get their dictators -- making it easier for me to get my line count. Yea !
TT is constantly hiring, so the above scenario is a norm.
Sheesh, that's awful. Glad I didn't waste my time testing, had a feeling....
I am so glad, so very glad that finally I have reached
the age that if we are low on work, I just take off. No problem at all and love the extra day or so off. I now have worked since the 70s and finally made to retirement age, get SS plus other retirement money coming in and thank the good Lord do not have to worry about if there is work or not. BTW, when I worked inhouse never ran out of work ever, only when transferring out to company do they run out of work. If I had to raise a family now I would most certainly cross train on other accts at my place but only have 1 that I work on, by choice.
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!
I'm lookin for part-time work (about 3-4 hrs daily) after 13 years of full-time, anyone know of a
company that is hiring flexible part-time? I'm starting a career in real estate but don't want to totally quit transcription, but I think most places require 25 hours a week and I cant work weekends, as real estate sales are the biggest on the weekend with open houses and people off work to shows homes to. If you know of a place I'd sure appreciate the info. Thanks!
MDI-Maryland is an excellent company, pay on time all the time, great line rate.
I left also because I went out and got my own client(s).
They are very nice people.
The only negative I can think of were the e-mails from the owner say work, work, work, we are out of TAT.
Other than that, which is very minor, it was a good experience.
Not what I was told; 3500/wk part-time & 6000 wk/full-time. nm
Precyse Solutions is hiring part-time and full-time right now.
Saw this on their website.
i work 3 part-time jobs now. it can be confusing if you are learning both at the same time, but sm
other than that not a problem for me. best to get one down before starting to other or you might become overwhelmed.
MDI-MD: What are daily line requirements for full-time/part-time? Thanks! nm
I have one full-time job and 2 part-time jobs. It can be tricky at times, sm
but at least I now have plenty of work always. I have some big financial goals, and right now that seems to be the only way to accomplish it. I can't see any reason why it would not be legal -- why would you say that? I am cheating no one, except myself (out of sleep and a social life). Fortunately, I am single with no children or anything. I cannot imagine doing this if I had a family. At least my dogige understands.
I've been there quite a while, pay on time, growth spurt right now, so good time to get on board,
new accounts and lots of work, and before someone says it, I'm not management, just an employee.
per his request I told him Time To Call, he called Not That Time, emailed me
we will be glad to use our
after we find another job
I'm glad I could help.
I am an MT, before I get accused of being in a managerial position.
YW...glad I could help :)
I'm glad I'm not the only one
When I was hired two years ago, I gave a set schedule as an SE (with every intention of following it), but right from the beginning I had to adjust it because of no work being available. Since then, I pretty much do what I want to. Thank goodness I work for a good office and they don't bother me much, but all the talk about the changes coming are worrying me. If they make me work a set schedule, I may just fly the coop, because I know there will never be work available during my shift.
I am glad you think so
You must be in management and not an MT or ME.
I have never had so many problems with MQ since being transferred to Amherst. Yes, there it is again, AMHERST. I am exhausted after my 40 hour week and feel like I have been typing for 2. I just do not get anywhere. All crappy dictators, and jumping from account to account and running out of work.
You must not do acute care or as it used to be called, medical records, and you must have easy, easy reports. I am making squat for all my aggravation.
Even if the grass wasn't greener on the other side, I would never come back.
I am just holding on until I can find another job and I am looking.
I can't take this garbage anymore.
It is not worth my health, happiness or my family. They all come before this company. It used to be a good company before FRANK came on board.
Can't wait until I can get out of here.
Oh, do you have to work on Thanksgiving and Christmas, if you celebrate that holiday? Just another one more thing to annoy me.
well glad you think so
I want to say I am so glad that (sm)
I am not the only one who cannot stand the company. Every time I post elsewhere (will not say where) I got flamed for saying this is not the absolute best company to work for. Believe me, it is about the worst. Any time a company claims it is the best, that is a red flag IMO.
I am so glad....
I am so glad to hear that! I just got my work computer and am scheduled to start on the 30th :) I have been so nervous because I have had 3 different job offers and chose Spheris.
Glad it is not just me
I thought maybe it was me, but I know I'm able to do more than 150 lph. Been there since summer 05 and wondering how long to stick this out. Demo screens can really slow you down and no compensation for them either. There are so many MTSO out there, where to go??? I don't want to hop from this one to that one again and again.
I am glad I went with them too. I have been there sm
two years. The first year was a little rocky but everything is great now.
My account has only one ESL but a handful of ATROCIOUS American docs. I would prefer a nice accent to speed-demon mush-mouth at this point. I am glad I do not get them often or I would be bald from pulling my hair out!
You will be glad...sm
Pay is on time every other Monday, never had a problem. They are very flexible, as long as you work your scheduled day. I work whenever I want during that day. They never bother you once you're out of QA. Very nice people!
Glad to know this about them
Sounds like stinky pay IF and WHEN you even get paid. I tend to gloss over the too happy to be true posts. That bubble will burst in short order. Things for the realistic info on this company. DELETE!!
Glad for you
Sounds like good news for you and your friends and relatives, but have been here for awhile and so have some others and it has been the same with them also, not just me. Bounced from account to account. I just received an email saying, Congrats for saying what others past and present have not said. That is a fact and says something. I am not making this up to slam anyone. It is the truth. I am sure there are those that a happy, some do not know the difference especially the new ones. It is just a matter of time. Everyone has to decide for themselves, but I can guarantee many just keep on looking.
Welcome!! We are glad to have you.
I really think you will like MDI-FL.
Glad to help. nm
Glad I could help!
I just got my computer today. I'm excited about starting.
Glad to be gone
You are one of the lucky ones to have been paid!! They like to play games with your money, first by holding it as in your case for weeks after you have gone. She does not care about payroll being late - and actually sends out emails that she is tired of answering emails, and then her and her manager will literally turn off their IMs, or just not answer. They are also famous for making you stick to a schedule - regardless if you are an IC, and has her shiftleads call and ask why are you not working - you are on the schedule. Needless to say - this was a joke of a company, and many people that have gone are still waiting on that final paycheck. Her favorite comment is it is company policy like she is such a big company, yet she operates out of her home!!. And her so-called company policy seems to change along with her mood - which is daily. If you need a paycheck - I would advise to stay away from them.
Sure am glad
Since the administrator has now removed the ads until confirmation from the company, about the only thing I can be glad about is that my resume does have my name and phone number but that is about all, I omitted the name of the company I currently work for, offered to provide for reference at a later date and also did not list reference phone numbers or addresses, just available on request. Unfortunately, I am still naive enough to hope this is a legit ad!!
Am glad you like it there
Some have not been given the promises made. That is why there are some problems, re: vacation pay and I could go into more detail about what happened to me when I told them I was quitting, but no need to bring up old wounds. Obviously they are now starting to appreciate what they have. I worked countless weekends besides my M-F work because I liked what I was doing, but never compensated for it. That is all it would have taken is appreciation and compensation.
Thanks!! Glad to from a KS Rad MT
I too am glad to know I am
not the only one. I have almost 20 years experience. They kept telling me they were going to whittle down my pool at first to 3-5 hospitals and then at least down to 10. They never got below 20. No way to make lines that way. Plus the line counter was set for low line counts.
I'm glad it's going well for you. NM
I'm glad I got out of there!
I can't believe that anyone will even still work for them after all of this. I got out of that hole about a year ago and went some place much, much better, and I'm so glad that I did! From what I have read, it's even worse now than it was when I was still there! I can't imagine not being paid for spaces, headers, or footers. Back when I was there, I was at least paid for headers and footers. That's just robbery!
I'm glad to know there are a few (sm)
of us KS here - just to have the relationship with each other - that's all, but I know what you mean. I don't know of any other boards, if anyone does, let us know!
Wow, so glad to know I'm not the only one.
I actually just sent out a resume myself and I'm hoping to hear back. This is so stressful. I don't know what's going on. I have been with Keystrokes for a year and have never even come close to being in this situation until this month. In fact, I have always had too much work up until now. I have had to use PTO days to cover me. I called the office to see about another account, but was told that there is nothing else available right now. This is way beyond frustrating.
Glad to know it isn't just me. I can't
understand why she is in that position.
you're busy today, that must be a relief. I wonder if your acct is (I won't say the entire name, but eye and ear....), because my acct mgr told me today that they had four docs on vacation at the same time, and had wanted me to QA some overflow at the beginning of the month....but then everyone went on vacation. That made me wonder if that was your acct, and would certainly make sense, if that many docs were on vacation at the same time.
My acct isn't on VR yet, but I worry that it may soon (so I've been told), with less for me to do. However, I also do GT for a company, as well as have my own small acct doing medical manuscripts, so I don't have all my eggs in one basket, in case something happens with one of them.
Anyway, again, glad to hear you're working today, with lots to do. Be sure you call your acct mgr next time (don't email, as sometimes they get bogged down), and I find that if I phone, my questions get answered much faster. They've always been quite up front, with anything I've asked.
Best of luck to you!
Glad I saw this. I'm just getting
I guess this explains why I haven't seen any money for the 3 days I got in before the supposed pay period ended. I also haven't heard from my TL. Why do these companies do this? They were screaming for help, made it sound like such a good situation and then nothing. Oops, they all do that, huh? So long Cardioscribes.
Well I'm glad you did
stop by this board before sending them money. Years ago I knew an MT who found that out the hard way ($450 later) earlier in her career. There is no such thing as free MT training these days, because on the job training is very rare.
Glad I am Gone
I quit Transcend in Sept of last year. My account when VR and my check was cut in half. They said that VR could be done twice as fast - NO WAY! I miss the people but not the VR!!!!!
Thank you. I'm so glad someone else
gets where I'm coming from and knows what I meant. I know the women libbers did a lot of good, but they always played a big part of the need for 2-income homes and women having to do it all!
Thanks again for offering up some support! I was regretting ever opening my mouth and wanting to crawl inside a hole.
Glad to see there are others out there
making at least decent money out there besides me. I agree with you 100%.
