I have also heard great things about this company, only recently have I heard bad things. If they post on this message board they supposedly do not offshore work. The moderator would definitely have something to say about that, don't you think?
Does that make sense to you?

DIT Pay from horses mouth via email sm
0-5000 lines per pay period
5000 - 10,000 lines per pay period
10,000 - 12,500 lines per pay period
12,500 - 15,000 lines per pay period
15,000 - 20,000 lines per pay period
20,000 + lines per pay period
These are my figures bases on FT 160 hours.
So if do 20,000 lines per pay period equals
10,000 lines per week = 250 lines an hour per 8 hr (every hour)
you get 7.5 cents a line Woww eee
($1500 a month - so work 40 hours a week X 4 equal 160 hours equal ONLY $9.37 hour for all the skill and accuracy.
thank you! I'll consider that straight from the horses mouth..so to speak.
i've heard nothing good about transolutions
I've heard good things about both...sm
but which one pays better? I'm curious to know too as I thought about applying for eMTS. Let us know. TIA
Pretty good from what I've heard...
A friend of mine works for them. Said they are strict on accuracy and line counts but are also somewhat flexible in schedule.
I've heard good things about MDI.
Sorry, I'm not part time so that's all I can offer. Felt I should write something as poster below didn't seem to realize this company board is for asking and discussing companies.
I've always heard if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. n/m
Do you mean Axolotl? If so, I've heard many good things about them. nm
Foot in mouth. Sorry :) I never heard it mentioned.
I thought that Mantis was the OSi platform.
If your facts are true, make them public. You've nothing to lose and everything to gain.
How can you be putting your head on the chopping block when you are anonymous here?
Details have not been given in your posts. Please show us ALL the details.
Why would you be putting your head on the block by pointing out supposed anomalies in the raise structure?
Any recruiter can give out that information because it's the same for everyone. Any MLS can go to the website and see it. I have it here in front of me. I would like to see you defend your statements, because I'm not seeing the proof here.
Why would you be putting your head on the block regarding incentives?
Any recruiter can give out that information, if it exists. That information also can be seen in the job boards and on the website, as it's public knowledge. I sure don't see any out there, nor have I for months.
Why would you be putting your head on the block regarding enticements?
You say they are readily viewed on job boards, but yet you can't give details. Any recruiter can give that information, too, as they post the ads on the boards. They can also be seen on the website. However, looking back over a lot of weeks of posts on various boards, I don't see one "enticement," so we're going to need YOU to point them out to us.
If the enticement is the pay structure, then you're benefitting the same as everyone else. If the enticement is the ads, well, you get the same opportunity for shift differentials, the same CMT pay, the same benefits, the same production incentives, don't you? What don't you get that you deserve?
Also in regard to enticements, I've got to ask for clarification on a statement you made:
"...look at past and future ads on MT Jobs, etc."
Do you have details on what the company is offering in the future? If so, let us all in on it so people who don't work at Transcend know what to wait for.
Finally, no one should need to email you, because all of YOUR information should be made public IF IT EXISTS, and you shouldn't fear making it public, IF IT'S TRUE. Having people email simply allows you to privately promote your version without having to publically defend the truth of of your claims.
If you can't back up your claims, then please concentrate on making the best out of your own situation, okay? It's not right to make statements that can't be supported with facts. It doesn't help the company and it doesn't help you. If you're a loyal employee you should be trying to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem. Maybe you could offer your assistance on the quality council.
I've heard only positive things about them. So, I applied, but haven't heard a word. Maybe fl
I've only heard of Intellitype. Never heard of Teletype.
What the heck? I've never heard that in the 8 yrs I've worked here. sm
Go back to your STM or over his or her head.
I've been a QA 15 years and I've never heard
of any company only paying for the actual Keystrokes of the blank. You would literally make less than minimum wage that way. Waaay less.
What good does it do? They've lied, they've betrayed us.
They've taken all they are going to take from me. I am not going to waste any more time being angry. I hate the way things ended, but I refuse to accept the blame for any part of it because I know that was a lie too, even though they did try to blame the MTs. I know part of the problem was quality issues, but QA wasn't to blame for that either, although they have been.
It is time to pick up and move on. I think mgmt will reap what they sow. For those who worked on the main account Webmedx is still hiring, though the best time slots have already been taken.
This is the first I've heard about it...sm
and why would someone leave the company over QA problems? If they're not a good MT then that's not the company's fault.
I've heard of them, go for it. nm
Yes I've heard of them
and worked for Tanya for awhile. She is extremely, extremely nice and amicable, but it just wasn't the job for me. Hope this helps.
I've heard both yes and no, so I'm not sure. Most say yes. nm
I've always heard...sm
that there are an average of 10 five-letter words in a 65-character line, which would mean there are also 10 (or 9 possibly) spaces you are paid for. So 55 characters without spaces would probably be about the same as as 65-character line.
I've done a few checks on reports by dividing number of words by 10 to get total lines and/or number of characters divided by 65 to get total lines and it is pretty close to a 65-character line with spaces... not always, because a lot depends on what you're transcribing, whether it uses a lot of big words or small words, etc., but I think overall it pretty much averages out. You'd have to try it and do the comparison on that particular account or work type to find out for sure. Hope this helps.
I've never heard of that (sm)
I had contacted Sprint to see if DSL was available and it wasn't. I guess I'll call them back to inquire about that. Thank you.
10-15 cpl for CMT? The most I've ever heard sm
was a half a cent or three quarters of a cent more than without the CMT. I'd also question how much this person actually knows if she has to point out that CMT needs to be through AHDI/AAMT and not college, MT school, etc.? I mean, last I heard there is only one place to obtain CMT cert.
thanks...I've never even heard of that before
I've never heard of that either.
We get paid per line, but like the AP said, we get credit for the full report. I have never heard of anyone that gets paid per correction. That's nuts.
I'm not really sure about PT. I've heard that they do or they used to and don't (sm)
anymore. You could go to their website www.keystrokestranscription.com and either contact them by e-mail or phone. I'm sorry, I wish I could answer you but I really don't know for sure.
I've heard the same about them.
Plus, my company is losing several accounts to them. They do offshore quite a bit of their work which is why they can boast low rates for clients.
I've always heard it used
as in jockeying for position, as in jones'n around to strike the first blow in a cat fight.
I've never heard of them, but
I looked at their website. They say American only. I find it curious looking at the executive management page that many of the management are former Medquist people. I don't know if that's good or bad!
Had the same happen here, heard the same thing, good references and good ....sm
job record will get you better $$$ if you are willing to promote yourself, search like crazy, talk to everyone, etc., but I have never been paid a cent more for CMT, what a waste, and all the years I paid my dues to AAMT, what a joke, they did NOTHING to better our field, just took the money for better conventions, as far as I can see.
No Way! We show horses too
There's no way I would give it up for a job. As you know, it's an addiction. I am willing miss an event now and then, and try to work my schedule around the horse events, but I would not give it up entirely. And to give up your dogs too? I think you'd be miserable.
I've heard of them but have never worked for them.
Originally, it was a mother/daughter team in Montana. Evidently now, the daughter's in Wisconsin but they still have an office in Montana. Nice enough people. I worked with the son-in-law for a while at another job. The workload is easy, but I don't know how steady it is. I applied with them when I was a newbie but found a job elsewhere for more pay.
I've heard the same thing..
The announcement is expected sometime in Dec - oh joy, just in time for x-mas! How thoughtful of them! not...
I've heard that about this company.....sm
it's too bad that they require new hires to work one weekend day, otherwise I'd be applying with them.
I've been there longer than that and I never heard ot it.
Wow! Ridiculous! I've heard it all now.
Really?? I've barely ever heard of them. nm
Here's a company I've never heard of ...
This is a company that seems to be hiring. I believe they are in Virginia. I know nothing; just stumbled across their website and thought they looked interesting.
I'm not liking what I've heard so far!
Did this all happen recently?
no - it is true I've heard of it also nm
I've heard of the same problems with others, which is probably one
reason no one seems to work there and has no response. It wouldn't take but one bounced check for me to leave. I can't imagine any response they could have that could justify it.
I would never had applied with any company that called themselves a typing company because I feel like it says something about their attitude and you are just a typist and not a transcriptionist.
I've never heard ONE manager say that. nm
I've recently heard about
I've recently heard about companies which, when you hire, insert a hidden contract clause preventing an MT from hiring with other companies.
Is this a common practice?
I've heard and typed that before.
I don't really see the humor, it is just technical terminology. Just my opinion.
Hmmm - now where've I heard THAT before?
I've never heard of this company.
Maybe their transcriptionists don't frequent this board.
I've heard of a lot of companies, what was L&H? nm
Amazingly, I've never heard of one
In all my years doing this, I've never even gotten dental clinic notes interspersed with my other stuff. I still cringe if I get something from the oral maxillofacial guys because that's the specialty I have the absolute least practice with and I'm unfamiliar with most of the terminology.
I think what they do is so consistent that for the most part dentists predominantly just do their notes by hand on the big picture of the mouth in the chart and call it a day.
I don't think we're the ones who need to get off our high horses
We're not the ones who are irritated by a simple question.
Just hold your horses, ain't Christmas yet!
Never heard of them. I've been in the industry 30 years.
