Hey girl, greetings from the northwest coast of Fla. sm

In Reply to: I may not do it. I have to take the ASR test yet and - she has to take the test scores and my line rate s

did you take that ASR test yet? I know Spheris has a few new accounts coming on board too but I don't think you'd want to go back to that. Cornerstone was not my cup of tea but loved TWS. If something isn't broke, don't fix it.

Anyone familiar with this transcription service?  They pay by the minute, is this good or bad.  I have never been paid by the minute.

Being remote, it makes it easy for someone to mess with your life if you get them angry, especially if they can manipulate line counts and the type of work you get. 

Perhaps that is why most of us don't speak up more, although that is precisely why we should. 

Who's going to be the overseer for this industry, to make sure that all is conducted fairly and within the law?  I don't think anybody outside the industry cares that much.  There are much bigger things to worry about right now, I guess. 



Thanks - I'm on the East Coast too
I'll have to look around here some more.  Thanks.
On the West Coast
I heard the term typing monkeys, too. Wouldn't surprise me if it were used all throughout the company, they had so little respect for us. I just thought it was an LA thing, but evidently not.
W. Coast is a lot of Asian. nm
That sounds about right for East Coast!
So, now you see that the MTSOs don't really make that much off of us!!!!  Maybe we should thank our lucky stars!! 
Not just CA - east coast here and 100K is not all that much
for a couple to make. Many married couples I know make around that it and are just scraping by.
Gulf Coast Transcription
I worked for them several years ago. Very small, friendly company and pay was always on time, but have not seen anything recently about them looking for transcriptionists. At the time I worked for them, the account that I was on was just going internet, but we still used a C-phone. Sorry I can't be of more help.
Gulf Coast Transcription

I have worked for GCT for 3 years!  We use SoftMed and Chartscript via the internet.  There is always plenty of work (two major hospitals and plenty of private groups/practices), and, if, for some reason, you run out, they are more than happy to assign more work to you.  Pay is bi-monthly (direct deposit) and on time!  Pay scale is comparable!  Owners are very friendly and down to earth, very willing to work with you!  Office staff is very friendly.  Editors/Trainers are very friendly.  This is a great company to work for.

Saw some gab a few days ago on GCS (poster was happy GCTer or something like that) and would like some info if anyone can help. 

When you say they have plenty of work, do you mind my asking how many lines you do per day/week? Also, what are they paying cpl? If you don't want to tell me exactly what they are paying you, would you just give me a range?

Also, do they work with you well when you want to take time off or need a sick day?

Thanks for the help!

I know Gulf Coast Transcription will consider it
Yeah Gulf Coast
I have been working for Gulf Coast since February.  I absolutely love this company!  Yes, all positions are IC, so of course no benefits.  However, I find the company to be so friendly and so helpful.  They bend backwards for you; whatever, you need the make sure you have it.  I am transcribing ER notes currently.  I would refer anyone to this company.  They are absolutely great!

Does anyone work for Gulf Coast Transcription out of Ft. Myers, Florida?  If so, what is their pay scale?
East coast MT/MEs? Saw Futurenet's ad (sm)
and was just curious as to why they have to live on the east coast.  Client preference?  Time zones? 
Is this ESL account on the west coast? nm
They advertised for east coast ME.
That's what I applied for. I have a FT job too, just want part-time ME at night to give my fingers a rest.
Gulf Coast Transcription
Found some good things in the archives, but no information recently... pros, cons, would like to apply to this company soon.  Thanks!
Gulf Coast Transcription
I just found out today that they offshore.  I didn't realize this.
Gulf Coast Transcription
Does anyone currently work for this company who could give some information?  Are they hiring now?  Thanks a lot.

I currently work for Gulf Coast
and absolutely love it!  I have been with them for a year and a half.  I believe they are trying to hire for nights and weekends, as we are needing the coverage for these shifts to meet our TAT.

Does this company have heavy ESL? Do you have plenty of work, what kinds of platforms do they have and is pay per line decent? Any info would help. I checked their website and there is not a whole lot of information.

Does anyone know if they offshore???  Just hired and wondering...
I think I figured it out. Is this person on the east coast? nm
gulf coast transcription website says
that's almost scary in a too good to be true way.  Does anybody work for them? do they offer benefits? TIA
Gulf Coast Transcription info?
Oop!! Gab on GCT of course - not GCS!!!
Looking for information on Gulf Coast Transcription sm
I know all positions are IC.  Just looking for some information from someone working for them or who has worked for them..  Thanks.
Gulf Coast Transcription--any advice?
I submitted an application with Gulf Coast Transcription and was invited to test, which I did. However, that was over 2 weeks ago and I have not had any response. I sent a follow-up email approximately a week ago and still have not heard back. I am very interested in this company, as I have experience with ChartScript and prefer to work IC. However, I am wondering why I have not heard back from them. Even a reply letting me know they are not hiring right now or are not interested would be preferable to no reply at all. There was a telephone number included in the email they sent inviting me to test. I am thinking about calling but do not want to seem too pushy. If anybody has gone through their hiring process and has any insight, I sure would appreciate it. Also, if anyone has any particulars about the line rate, any incentives or shift differentials, etc., I would appreciate that, as well. Please feel free to email me. Thanks!

You go girl!

you go girl!!
Well help a girl out!
Where did you get it? How?
Go on girl!
I am an old PRD girl myself and (sm)
the ESP Expander that is written into the ExTex program reminds me of that; however, I also use my shorthand.
You Go Girl!!!!!
I'm with YOU, girl! - nm
sorry not that girl
i work on mdnetwork which is a great plaform but def do not get to cherry pick.  who cares though, all the docs are great so it doesnt really matter to me one way or another. 
You go girl!! (sm)
Too many want all the perks of a work-at-home job and the perks of a 9-5 run office situation.

I suppose they also want their dentist and doctor to work around their schedule also.

Not a recruiter, just tired of hearing the griping and inflexibility so many seem to have anymore, not everyone, just some.
You go girl!!
You go girl! nm
You Go Girl!
Yes please continue. Thank you so much. It helps me to focus on what my goal is and if something is not aligned with that, discard it. You never know who is posting on the other end and it may be their desire to have you stop, all the more reason to continue.
Right on, girl!

You said what I think every day -- afraid to check how many hours I really work, setting up each and every job in a software platform that makes me take my hands off the keyboard every 2 seconds.  It is a waste of my time, but I doubt I could ever return to the world where you dress up every day, get in a car, fix my hair, get my nails done, etc.  I have many regrets about doing this work, but those stated above are not amont them.  My regrets are yours - no raises, no appreciation, and knowing that the big guys travel back and forth for meetings (what a joke in this day and age of online meetings).  If only they split all that money up for us poor

YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!
Anyone working for Gulf Coast Transcription of Florida?
Any and all info appreciated.  Thanks!
Any info on Gulf Coast Transcription in Florida?
Given job offer.  Must admit it is tempting to tell MQ where to put it, but I don't want to go from bad to worse.  Any feedback??
It is a West Coast account. Rather not mention names. nm

She and her husband run the account. 

Today is the last day for a large hospital on the East Coast.
No doubt about it.
