I was offered a position but didn't accept.

The whole time I was interviewing the recruiter was IMing people, either interrupting to do it or saying out loud what she was sending.  I can understand the need to communicate, but thought it extremely rude.

The account they wanted to put me on was the most wonderful account and I was lucky there was an opening because the MTs on the account just loved it and there was rarely an opening.   She then put me in contact with the lead on the account and she told me that it was an extremely difficult account and that they couldn't keep MTs on the account.  I had worked on the account years ago when I worked on YOG and I knew that it was an extremely difficult account.   The lead also let slip that they offshored work and the good work went offshore and the crap was left here for us to do. 

I hate being lied to more than anything and once someone lies and I catch them in it I'm done, no second chances. 



I decided not to take their job offer. (nm)
Decided to take the offer
I decided to take the offer. I have had a growing number of differences with MED-Scribe lately, and I am ready for a change. I know someone else who is very happy there, and their opinion differs greatly from the old complaints of 2004 & 2005 that were posted on here. Apparently, the company must have worked the bugs out of their system, as they have some happy employees and ICs there now.
Thank you for the offer but I've decided

I just don't have a good feeling about this.  I typed over 5000 lines already and haven't been paid and no communication when I will be paid.  I sent all my personal information, soc. sec #, banking info to a recruiter who now is not answering my emails - this makes me feel very uneasy.  I haven't received your emails, so no I don't think I'm on your team.  The person who trained me said she was my team leader and that's the last I heard from her. 

Good luck to you.  I just don't feel comfortable with any of this, and would rather move on now than wait around and get burnt later.  Thanks again.

Did you accept a position? (nm)
I did not accept position
I did not accept offer. Too many negatives........
So what happens after accept offer? sm
I have accepted a position with Keystrokes but haven't heard back after leaving message for recruiter. Just wondering what next step is. Should I expect paperwork via snail mail or E-mail, etc? Thanks! 
Then don't accept the offer...

There are many companies who pay much higher than that.  But, what you quoted are not Third-World wages...low, yes, but not Third World.

They offered me 6 cpl for IC. I did not accept. nm

i refused to accept a position
based upon their equipment, just for reasons like you stated. Not only cannot make money, but it makes your work-life miserable trying to cope with it. I'd rather take less-quality accounts and have easier days...
Job Offer I couldn't accept
Got an offer from them last week, but had to turn it down due to other priorities and the amount of hours they needed work to be done.  Sent them a professional letter refusing the job and didn't not hear one thing back from them.  I would like to know if they got my e-mail, but no response.  Not too concerned about this company.
Why I didn't accept the offer....sm
I tested with them, passed everything great, was made the job offer that sounded too good to be true, with the first 10 days paid at an hourly rate to help with the learning curve, etc. Then they didn't send the foot pedal although they said they did and then told me I didn't need it anyway to do the training, which they then put off for yet another day or so, etc.

After all that, I finally get the training which consisted of an hour with one of the only 2 QA people and she wasn't familiar with the platform she was training on. She told me she has been with the company for 12 years, but has always worked on the other word-based platform and had been thrown into training just recently on this one. She kept telling us how to do something, then realized it was wrong and went back and back and back until nothing was all that clear. Then she said to Really watch the spellchecker because there were MANY misspelled words and it wasn't really a medical spellchecker! I asked if we could use an outside one on our computer, such as my Stedman's, and she said no, it wouldn't work with this platform. I asked if they were going to fix that at some point and she said they couldn't because the platform actually belongs to a different company and they just use it, and this other company usually won't take the calls when they see it's Chronicle calling, so it was just up to us to be very careful with it.

She then went on to tell us that we'd also have to keep a close eye on our line counts because they weren't always accurate either. She said the 2 women in the office who I dealt with aren't MTs and had never been MTs, one was fairly new and one had been a receptionist that they just promoted. She said the man in the company, I believe she said he owned the company (I may be wrong about that), was often cranky with them and yelled a lot!!! She also told me that she had Never heard anything about any type of paid training for that period of time and she thought that was an error in the job posting. No one in the office would give me clear details about the paid training either. She also said that there was something going on in the office area that she couldn't talk about, but if they were slow to respond to questions, etc., it was because they were dealing with this!

I asked if there wasn't room for someone to work on the more user-friendly word-based platform they have and she said no, because they just lost a huge account that used that platform and they had to find another account before they could hire anyone for that platform now. After this very informative training with her it sounded to me like a company to get away from fast...it seemed as though it would be one thing after another.

I hope for those of you who posted good things here about the Apex platform and the company itself continue to have a good position and continue to like working there, but there were way too many red flags for me to spend even more time and energy trying to work on a clunky at best platform with people who had no first-hand knowledge of MT work, and people who seemed to be fighting amongst themselves. For a trainer, she really threw the company under the bus when talking with us. I declined to start with them and even though I really need a job, I surely don't need what was to come with them.
I was offered 8 cpl with 12 years of experience. Did NOT accept the job!! nm
I also thought the offered rate was too low and didn't accept it. nm
I was offered a position,
which I accepted. The woman I spoke with seemed very nice and very down-to-earth. I am not sure how many MTs they are looking for, but maybe more than one.
I had been offered a position with them,
but IMO their rate of pay was too low for me. She seemed very nice, though.
I was offered an IC position at 10 cpl, 11 cpl
over 12,000 lines/pay period.   They do have employee status too, but not sure of the rate.  I didn't accept the position as it was less than what I was already making. 
I was offered a position, but
They were offering pay without spaces including headers and templates at 7 cpl for Radiology IC position (this was back from earlier this year).

Now that you've merged, I don't know how things will be run as far as how production will go. Good luck, though.
I was offered a position by them...
but went onto something else (employee status. I had asked about the demographics part, and they had said that 99% of it was filled in. The Emdat site pretty much teaches you everything you need to know about the platform. It seemed great and would have went with them. They were very helpful and answered all my questions. Their test was pretty easy, as well. Good luck!
I was offered an MT and a QA position with them.
They offshore, pay is low, and the sound quality of files is poor.  I didn't accept either position so don't know any more details. 
I was offered an IC position from W. nm
Offered a position
set up for training, etc., and then never heard from them again.
Just received offer for IC position
15 yrs Exp....offer.....0.07 cpl 65 character line!!  This is for IC with no benes and they want me to test first as well.  Can you imagine!!  What has happened to this industry!!  13 yrs ago I worked for a company with full benes and was paid 0.10 cpl.  This is nuts.  Then of course everyone wants you to have your own equipment, work extra hours when need be but when they are low on work....Oh well....then maintain 99% QA rating.  It's so disheartening for all the knowledge we obtain.  Sorry,,,had to vent.
To OP: Are you? Are you this company? Because if you are, you just offered me a position.
I'd like to know if it's you before I decide whether to accept or decline.
They offered me a position, but I turned it down.
What the recruiter said and what the team leader said was in direct conflict.  Then there is the question of offshoring.  
Don't know. I was offered a position with them but didn't
take it.    I know very little about DQS/WebCorrect, but the recruiter told me you get a couple of lines for each report for having to look at a file.   I don't know enough about DQS to understand exactly what they are talking about though. 
I was offered QA position for 2.5 cents

Please someone tell me.... what is the acceptable pay for QA jobs?



I have been offered Onc position with them too, how cool.

Can't wait to get started either.  Maybe we should exchange e-mails and keep in touch, etc.  Let me know.

Currently at MQ/offered position with Precyse. nm

Were you offered another position or severance? nm
Also interested--position offered
I'm also interested in UST. They have offered me a position. All of their work stays in the US but the pay they offered is less than what I make now. Anyone have any idea how easy it is to hit 1800 lines per day with them?
As long as they were offered a different position, such as MT, there is
nothing that can be done, including unemployment. Companies can demote employees, change their position around, change their hours, transfer them, etc without penalty. It is not ethical but not illegal.
I applied too and was offered a position...
I really think their accounts would be a great fit and also my feel for the atmosphere at this company, but I'd have to start out at a rock-bottom rate, so I'm passing it up.  I may be sorry, but I'm just not going to stoop to that low a rate even if it does increase rapidly.  I'd still be losing out on money I could have made someplace else. 
I interviewed with them and was offered a position.
They are wonderful people. They did tell me that they would supply equipment if you needed it so that definitely is an option. I did not take the position for the time being, but of all the companies I know, they are one of the nicest out there and I truly believe they would be a good employer.
I was offered a position with no testing, but I have
20 years' experience.  I accepted a position but then changed my mind. 
they offered me a position.....good or bad?
Don't work there, though was offered a position.
They do offshore work, though I caught them in a lie about it.  The recruiter was IM someone the whole time she was talking to me, very distracting and rude I thought.   They have a base pay, a shift differential, a level of difficulty of account, years of experience, etc., so pay range can very 2 to 3 cpl.   I would never work for them. 
I was offered a position with them. From my conversations
with them they are basically a 2 person company and terribly disorganized.  I don't think they ever gave me an exact line rate so I'm not helpful there.  The owner e-mailed me, I e-mailed back.  She had the IT person (employee #2) call me back and talk with me, but she wasn't an MT person so was asking me the questions that the MTSO told her to ask.  She then went back to the MTSO and then the IT contacted me again to ask me more questions the MTSO told her to ask.  I was offered the position and told info was being sent to me about accounts, format, etc.   Never heard from them and never got the stuff in the mail, even though I was told 2 different times it had gone out.   I heard from them about 2 months after that and they wanted me to start work for them.  I just never answered their e-mails.   I wouldn't recommend them just based on how disorganized they seemed to be and if they are only a 2 person company.  I don't remember details about format, etc. 
I've just been offered a position
at Transolutions but the recruiter e-mailed info, and I haven't had a chance to ask any questions. Do they provide the computer? How much training do they usually do?
I never worked for them, was just offered a position
 which I declined. 
Exactly - that's why I accepted the other position I had been offered.
I was offered a position but was not even close
to what I make per line, especially since I just got my 2nd raise!!!!  WOOHOO.
I did, took the test and they offered me a position
I was immediately offered a position with

Webmedx after the interview.   I didn't have to test based on my experience and score on the verbal testing. 

If you applied through TransHealth they still seem to be operating as two separate companies and dealing with a different group of people.  I applied to them before the merge and I never heard from them after submitting my resume. 

I was offered a position about a year ago
and did not take it as you had to be on call every third week at night with a pager for stats.
I was offered a C phone position w/ KS
come aboard if they didn't require a phone lone/LD. It seems so ancient to require a C phone anymore.
Offered C-phone position at KS

Is there plenty of work?  I think they actually want me on 2 accounts.  I'm scared to switch companies...but the company I'm with now is using and abusing me and I need to find something else.

I was offered a position without a test but sm
I didn't have the right computer and had to put up with frequent contact for months after I was offered and declined.

I was offered a position with TT but didn't

take it so I can't speak for them, but Axolotl is a great company.  I'm making almost 2 cpl more than what TT offered.  Work has been slow lately but they pay downtime and have are adding accounts little by little.  6 paid holidays, PTO, 401K with up to 3% match, free short/long-term disability.  I don't have a need for health insurance, but premiums are more reasonable than most.

They provide all hardware/software.  Great tech support available 24/7.  QA pretty strict, but reasonable.  Almost no flexibility with schedule, though getting off for doctor's appointments and things like that aren't an issue.  I think they only have 90 MTs/QA right now so still a small company, but one that respects its employees. 

I've been there a year and like with anything there have been a few ups and downs, but I would highly recommend then.   

They offered me a position a couple of weeks ago.

IC position and pay is low.   Can't remember any other details of their offer.  The first 2 were enough to know I wasn't interested. 

I was offered a position, originally accepted it, but
than changed my mind.  They told me it would be about 2 weeks before I could work, but the account I was going to be working on was acute care and they needed to get me cleared through the hospital to be able to access their system and then I would have to go through setup.  The account I was offered as internet based - I think Dictaphone ExText.
