My pay was constantly screwed up, constant IMs, they didn't tell anyone I quit and I got IMs/emails demanding I log in for my shift, the owner is unpleasant to say the least although she does put on a good I'm your friend, we're a team show. The insurance as an employee is extremely expensive. As an IC there you also have a set schedule. Hence, not really IC.

A heart of gold, there. :(
How do you compare this to Sylcount IV Gold. nm
There are 2 tiers-Silver & Gold sm
Silver is less, I have gold and I want to say it's about $75/pay period. $500 deductible, low copays. I believe 90 days is the waiting period but you'd have to ask the recruiter--I've been here a long time.
I like Sylcount Gold. Has tons of counting options.
Hospital accounts can be worth their weight in gold.
I work for a hospital, and I'll never go back to a national again. However, I do believe I work for the best hospital on the planet, too.
We are on production, but if we run out of work, we're still paid (they value their MTs). Great benefits, fantastic incentives, Planetree philosophy, conscientous dictators, life doesn't get much better than this.
Strongly consider working for a hospital rather than a service. I think you'll be happy.
TT - ext text. Why are some voice jobs gold/yellow instead of white? nm
yes, Blue Fox Software out of Illinois. Microsoft partner, Gold Standard, etc.
they make White Tiger, a business intelligence system, and their top programmer is Tom. I'm sure they can make something very nice for you. Tell them Jo sent you! link below
I thought the deductible was 500 vs 1000 (gold vs silver) but I guess I better go check! sm
As for policy levels, yes, you can get coverage as a single; as a couple; and self / family, with concurrent cost changes. Dental is great too.
Now, where did I put a copy of my BCBS plan... hmmm!
Well, if you like working on multiple accounts with horrible dictators, follow the BOS, plus Transolutions BOS on top of that and working on a computer system from back in the 80s, then it will be a good job for you!!
RE: STAR Team
The STAR team is a group of MTs that basically agree to work on any account they are needed on at the time and they get paid an hourly wage plus I believe extra if they type more than a certain number of lines. Basically, you don't have a primary or secondary account. You work whereever you are needed at that time.
I have not worked for them personally but I have nothing but bad things like recently no one getting paid on time b/c something happened to the owners account. Also I heard that one of the radiology accounts were just nothing but 10 minute reports back to back. But again that is just hear say.
Wolf Star--saw they have another ad on the job --sm
seekers board. Anyone have any info about them? Seem to post ad pretty frequently.
Transolutions STAR team
I'm consider a position a position with Transolutions on their STAR team. Could anyone give me any information on their STAR team - is it easy to make line rate, how bad are the dictators, et cetera? Feel free me to email me offline if you would like. Thanks.
(Your star employee, I mean - not the above poster!) nm
Transolutions MTs, what is the STAR team? SM
I was recently at their website and saw STAR team, is that like QA? Thanks.
What? You become a famous movie star?
Yep, elite and STAR=CRAP ACCOUNT-nm
I'm a current STAR Team member
I love being on the STAR team. Even after 17 years of transcribing, I learn so much every day. My work is certainly not the worst of the worst. The team basically does short TAT dictations across several hospitals. As I always say, you get back what you are willing to put into it. I feel honored to be a part of this team. We have an awesome supervisor too I might say. This is definitely a challenging position, but not just all the ESLs or hard work types. Pretty much the jobs that have a short TAT are filtered into our job queue.
Must be a cloud overhead because the STAR is not SHINING!
I just noticed the Transolutions ad on the JS Board. Is their STAR team the same the BEST sm
team at Keystrokes? I know that Keystrokes has had this in place for a while but it is promote from within. Can you hire on at Transolutions for the STAR openings?
Has anyone worked as a Transolutions STAR MT? I thought they paid low but the ad says differently. Looking for current information as I did not make the Keystrokes BEST team.
There are multiple platforms for rad including Radnet, Meditech, HBO Star, MiSys. Sm
I am on a MiSys account. I have a few friends on RadNet and ExText accounts. All radiology. I think it is the same for Medical Records too.
Star Stop works better than express scribe. If you want start Stop, yea it is kind of sm
expensive. I wish they did pay their QA hourly as I think they would see better quality work, but they per line and it is higher than the other person posted.
I have never had a problem with management, so I am unfamiliar with what the other person experienced with management.
Pay is always on time (most of the time early). I like the software. I guess you just have to see if it fits for you.
