I applied once and received information
I believe it is $15 per hour. There are no benefits. It is independent contractor. The platform is Dictaphone Extext.
No email of any kind here. Was off Friday and Saturday
not sure if I should stay up all night waiting for something or get some extra sleep!!
Happy Friday email LOL No $$$$$ made all week !! !!

How in the world could mgmt put out an email titled Happy Friday when we have had NO WORK for weeks and weeks now.  We can always look forward to such emails on Friday.

Same ole stuff about new accounts coming onboard between now and December, but what about PAYING OUR BILLS IN THE MEANTIME.  We have been LOW to NOW WORK for a VERY LONG time now.  Going deeper and deeper in a hole financially.  How is your paycheck, mgmt????

I've applied with them THREE times and have never received a response - sm
and it's not because I don't have experience. I had been with Brand X National for 8 years (you can probably figure out who) when I applied with Spheris, and I never got a response. Sent a second ap, nada. Third ap, still nothing.

Through this whole time period Spheris had want ads scattered all over the net. I'll never, ever understand why they didn't get in touch with me. Their loss....I'm now working for a local company and completely satisfied.
received the email, nm
received the email
no email received
can you provide more info?
a lot of us received an email
asking when we would be able to have an interview--NOTHING, NADA after that.

received 2 email warnings

I had received 2 email warnings

I received no such email, and I was paid on the 8th, not the 7th, and sm

since the line counts have not even been issued, it would seem highly unlikely that I am going to be paid on the 22nd.

I am sorry that you seem upset by my question, but I do not think it is unreasonable to want to know when I will be paid.

As far as letting you know anything, you have distanced yourself from the MTs so much, I really doubted that you would care.  Thanks for responding to me at least on the message board.

I received an email from JG stating spaces would
be paid now too. Got it at 9:19 a.m. with a follow up email 4 minutes later stating for clarification, this is permanent.
Yes, to me too. In fact, I think it was an Indian name in the email I received.
The Transcription Doctors?? I received an email about a job. Anyone know who they are?
Just checking them out.
I have received no email about such conference call.
Where did you get that from, and who sent it out.  Give initials, pls.  I got missed somehow.
Keystrokes is definitely hiring. I received an email from them saying that they sm
are hiring a lot of new MTs. They emailed CMTs from what I can tell, as they also emailed a few friends of mine as well. Three of us have taken positions. The timing was right; I have had it with MQ.
I don't believe I trashed the company, and I had not received the email yet. sm
And yes, she is cheery and full of hope and promise, but that doesn't pay the bills now.  I appreciate your compassion. 
A month or so ago I received an email from Axolotl
Offering me a position, but the recruiter was very up front and told me it was an extremely difficult, heavily ESL dictator account, so I passed.

I'm not sure if that's the account for which they still have an opening, or if they've got something else available now.

I've never heard of the other place, so I can't help there. You might check the archives just in case there's in there.

I received an email from someone about Keystrokes being for sale - it is lie. sm

Yes, the owners met with the CEO of Transcend and went to dinner but it was 2 years and it was NETWORKING.  They had no intentions of selling to them and when they informed them of that, Transcend stopped coming around.  I work in the office.  Get your facts straight.

I received an email from TransTech stating that they
are about to hire for many positions but just last week I read lots of posts on here about people running out of work.  At one time I had been really interested in working for them but this is really confusing and makes me very wary. 
I received an email today stating it was all approved. :-) nm

I received an email today stating it was all approved. :-) nm

Submitted resume 9/28 late at night. Received email today. nm
I applied there, got an email from...
a recruiter, filled in their preliminary paperwork, then never heard another word.  Sent her an email asking if I should look elsewhere or if I was still being considered and to please respond either way so I could stop wasting her time and mine - that was over a week ago and nothing.  Every other company I've applied with has responded either way within a day or 2.
Drop them an email. Mine was stolen. I received a nice empty envelope.
You did better than me - I applied and sent a FU email but no reply. nm
Has anybody applied with p.r.n. transcription service? Please email nm
I applied when they first posted. Not so much as an email in return after I tested.

I got an automated email shortly after and received info from Debra shortly after that. NM
Has everyone heard back from Keystrokes yet regarding the email we received a while back?
Just wandering why I haven't heard any response yet.
Can I asked when you applied? I applied a few weeks ago
and never heard a word and I have over 16 years of experience. I applied because I got a recommendation from a friend of a friend who loves working there..Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get anymore details other than that.  I'm all for even one positive at this point on this frustrating job search. Good luck to you though and check back with us to tell us how the interview went etc. Thanks
Pay due Friday, still ???
I do not want to post the name of this particular company but has been on this board several times. You do your days and times and then nothing. I have bills to pay and wish the companies could get our money to us just like we are there to type their reports.
every other Friday
Every other Friday
I've been with Focus almost 2 years and the pay periods have always ended every other Friday during these 2 years.
They pay every other Friday. How hard is that
They finally did pay me Friday
Well I finally did get all my pay, minus the western union fees. But what it took me to get it was almost not worth it.
it's friday free-for-all! Hoo-ha! nm



I sent my resume on a Friday, sm
took the test over the weekend and was hired on Monday.
I wish that people who get into this profession would understand that hospitals operate 24/7/365. My daughter is a registered nurse and does not demand a m-F schedule and YES she does have children. You got into this profession because of having kids at home and wanting to be a stay at home mommy. Well, 30 years of experience under my belt and most of the companies that I have spoken with allow me to work the hours that I want to work because of the fact that in general, I put in 12 hour days and even work weekends and dont take a day off unless I need to, due to illness or whatever and also, due to the fact that if I do have an emergency, I let someone know in advance and just not refuse to work
My Goodness! You'd think it was Friday--sm
today what with every body biting each other's heads off and getting all *snarky* over things that don't really matter. Get a grip you all, have a cold one, and mellow out! geez. some of Y'all are just LOOKIN' for an argument and if you can't get one going, you'll start one! sick *o this stuff. I think most of the people in this thread need a good long ol* fashioned *time out* in the corner!
I got mine on Friday before I started on (sm)
Monday. Had plenty of time to get it set up and get a KMV switch.
Be nice, people - it's Friday

Same here..I've been trying since early Friday..(sm)
I'll call Monday if I can't get in by then. It's never been down this long before.
I had Vonage Friday of last week and
I work for MDI and use Charter. I don't know if my problem was with the cable or with Vonage, but I would be at the end of a job and the Vonage phone would just cut out...sometimes staying connected, just not operational for a little bit (30-60 seconds), or worse, it would just cut off and I lost the job. The job got stuck in never-never land and I could not get it back to finish transcribing it. One job cost me almost 100 lines. So, on Tuesday I got Charter's ULD...the independent sales rep gave it to me for $15/month.
Thanks - I sent my test back Friday
so hopefully I'll hear back by the end of next week. I'm really interested in doing clinic notes so I hoping I did well enough.
P.S. He briefly told me on Friday

He specializes in this field and knows the laws of companies versus IC status.  He is a long time friend of the family so it won't cost me much and well worth every penny of whatever I do have to pay. 

Monday-Friday, First Shift?
Does anyone know of companies that have accounts with Monday to Friday, first shift positions? Personal obligations do not allow me to work weekends or evenings and so many companies want this. If I could do it I would, but it is not possible, and they all seem to want weekends and second or third shifts. I really need to find something. Any help greatly appreciated.
I am hoping for Friday but it could be Monday. sm
The pay period just ended yesterday. With over 400 employees it might be difficult to get it all done by Friday but I sure am crossing my fingers!
Made decision; Friday last day
Whew! Glad that's over! :)

Thanks folks.
Out of work 15 times Friday
Has happened all week long.  Think I got a total of 4 hours yesterday.  My STM said we were down 750 dictation minutes for some reason this week.  She had no idea why.  I have 8 different accounts I pull from. 
direct deposit every 2 weeks, on Friday,
my check was there on Friday, it usually is on Thursday which is early
Do you mean in addition to your reg Friday work? When do they give it to you?
