and love the job! The owner works directly with you until you are on your own typing the work, and you have communication with all transcriptionists whenever you need help with something. I never have to wonder if I will get paid, as the check is always sitting in my mailbox within three days after the pay date. There are only a handful of people that work for this company, so it is one of those dream jobs that you never want to let go of after you have it! I have read all of the negative posts regarding this position, and the people who wrote the comments obviously do not know what they are talking about, yet they still seem to feel free in sharing their negative views. What's up with that? It makes me very angry to see that this company is continuously being bashed each time the help-wanted ad is posted, but I guess that type of thing is to be expected from those that know they are not qualified to do the job. Some people are obviously quick to jump on the bandwagon when it comes to bad-mouthing companies after they have tested poorly or are told the work has been given to someone else. If you are qualified for the job, it is one of the best ones out there, so use your own judgement when it comes to applying for work. Otherwise, you might just miss out on one of those dream jobs!

Have worked with his company for many years (sm)
The owner is a gem and a very caring person. Pay is always on time, 15th and 30th.
TransTech is the best company I have ever worked for. I have been here two years
and can't say enough good about them. I know that they are owned by some former L&H people. They are adding new accounts like crazy and are always hiring.
Worked for them a few years ago. Not a bad company. You could do worse. -nm
I have worked for this company for years without problems!!
For those of you that are looking for a good company to work for, this is it. I have not had any problems with Transnet or ExText. For the account I am working on, there are very few ESL dictators and lines are very easy to come by. Regarding Word 2000 or 2002, that is the requirement of the clinic that River City is working on, NOT the requirement of River City. So it would be the clinic you are referring to when you are saying archaic and out of date with their technology. River City has no control over what type of software the clinic uses but only requires that the transcriptionists use what the clinic uses. I would rather work for a company that is good and stable where I can really feel like I am part of a team rather than just some gal out that chalking up lines on some unknown dictation system. Yes, the pay is a little less than the nationals but most dictators on the account I am on use quite a few normals and lines are quick. I would recommend this company over and over to someone that just loves what they do.
I have worked there for a few years now. Not a lousy company but a very good one. sm
Perhaps you did not meet their standards or perhaps they did not meet yours, but there is no reason for you to be on here bashing those of us that love working for KS. If you have specifics, please share. I will:
Good pay, on time every time.
Good account with plenty of work.
Managers that are human and know that the employees are too.
Owners who care about the company and employees. They are involved but less and less with employees as they grow. Instead, they have hired managers that are great so that they can concentrate on sales and customers.
Growing company with no lost accounts, which is more than most can say.
Opportunity for advancement.
IT helpful and caring, especially since the major change in that area a few months ago.
I love my job and I'm not in Illinois either; I'm in Florida.
My company lost the account I had worked on for 5 years. Webmedx got the
account so I followed it. I have interviewed with about a dozen companies the last year and out of all of them the only ones I considered were Keystrokes and Webmedx.
I worked for a temp agency for 3 years..LOVED it. Just worked. No counts, no hassels, GREAT pay..
No benefits at the time. I even learned pathology while temping (8 months on that assigment). I loved the variety, the ability to say I'm not available such and such time. I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I didn't need benefits.
I worked on site for many years. I've been doing this for 10 years... sm
I've worked on site, at home, for small MTSOs, for nationals, for hospitals. I've been paid per line, per minute, and per hour. I've been an MT and a QA. I have ALWAYS worked weekends and ALWAYS worked nights for the shift differential because MTs can't survive on 6 or 7 cents a line. At least I can't and I type 105 wpm.
I've BEEN dedicated from day 1, sister, so you are barking up the wrong tree.
A company is ONLY supposed to verify that someone worked there, what dates they worked, whether PT o
and last date worked. It opens everyone up to a lawsuit if more is given, so most companies are told by their attorneys and business advisors to verify only.
No one has a right to a reference, only verification of employment.
I have worked for MDI for 2 years and I
have never gotten a raise. Production incentives????? Never. If you are looking for all the perks, you'd better look somewhere else.
Worked at OSi for over 2 years and they have never
I worked for them about 3 years ago
The people were real sweet, but I couldn't pay my bills. They have a funny pay scale and it changes after 3 months. Wish you luck.
I have worked there for 2+ years sm
and am happy with the company. They supply your computer for free, they help with education, everyone is helpful. There was a slow time for a few months, but it has picked up now. MT work always has slow times from time to time. They have hospital accounts that one can work on if one runs out of work, which they pay more for MTs that can work acute care accounts as well as CMTs.
I have worked for them for 2 years and like it.
They have multiple platforms to work on. They have some difficult accounts, but no more than any other company I have worked for. There is always work available as you have secondary accounts and they provide a list of accounts that need extra help daily. Benefits are good, pay is NEVER late, direct deposit.
I worked for them about 2 years ago as IC sm
and they were really nice people to work for. Paid on time and very flexible, too.
I worked for them a few years ago.
I got my feet wet working for them, and I gained some valuable experience. However, I found that they constantly sent updated notes/templates on how their docs wanted files formatted. This got to be very time consuming after a while as this seemed to be a weekly occurence. Of course, that was a few year ago, so they might have come up with a better system. I also found their pay to be on the low end, and their raises, which you had to put in for, weren't all that great.
I worked for them 3-4 years ago and they were
very, very nice. At the time, it was strictly IC status. Don't know what they pay now but I got 7 cents a line. They had radiology, acute care, ER, clinic notes and cardiology. Pay was always on time. Platform was nice, all done over the internet, use your own PC. Never had problems and tech support was great. I would have stayed but needed fulltime with benefits.
I worked there two years ago
And at that time they still gave you all the equipment and paid for down time if you documented it correctly.
I had an okay experience at Transolutions. The people were really nice. What they said in the other threads about receiving huge thick binders on each account is true though, and I did run out of work a few times but they paid me for it.
I worked for her years ago
and in my many years before and many years since, I have never had a worse experience. Pay was by the gross line and I got my money, but I have never known anyone to be as nasty and mean as this person was to me. This is just my experience, but IMO, you would be wise to avoid any dealings with this company.
Probably should have said, I worked for them about 4 years ago, so they may pay a little better now.
I think that's sad. I worked there about 2 years ago and liked it. nm
I have worked there for over 3 years and I'm...
Great people to work for. Pay is very dependable. Work is very consistent. Most of the time there is more work than you can handle. My paycheck is very consistently in the same price range unless I take days off. Great QA people. They work with your schedule. I honestly do not have any complaints about them. I really like working for them.
I have worked as IC for 10 years
and never got - even with had my own hospital accounts - thing is - so many people have access to the report - who can prove what? I also hear terribly expensive unless you get through AAMT
It has been about 5 years since I worked there so
things may be different, but account was 85 to 90% Indian dictators and I had to re-record. Poor dictators and poor quality dictation is a horrible combination. I can't remember what the pay rate was, but it wasn't near enough. They would also call me up to 6 times a day, sometimes just to chat, other times they were just so disorganized it took that many calls to get all the info. I don't remember the name of the platform, but it was not user friendly at all. I worked there less than a month I think.
I worked for them years ago and it took several..sm
phone calls to get my first paycheck. Needless to say, I immediately quit. I don't know if they are different now or not but I would be cautious.
I worked for them but it was probably 5 years ago.
At that time I had to re-record work. The account was about 95% ESL dictators from India (this is what I was told by the company). So rerecording and Indian dictators make for not very good dictation. Their platform was extremely time-consuming and not at all user friendly. I can't remember the pay, but it wasn't enough. The office would also call me up to 6 times a day because they were so disorganized they couldn't think to ask me everything in one call. They sometimes called just to chat. I had only worked a short time and had no relationship with these people, yet they called to chat. The woman I dealt with sounded very blonde.
Things may have changed since then. They advertise for new positions a few times a year and I don't know if that means they retain most of their MTs or possibly have lost accounts, or their hiring for new accounts.
I worked for them 4 years ago
and not sure if I was just very inexperienced at that time or what but I felt the work was tough - never had the same doc twice and heavy ESLs... don't remember the system being cumbersum (sp) or the C-phone stuff - and I always had skads of telephone lines so not sure about that either
I have worked for them for 5 years....
I never experienced a problem with being paid on time. Direct deposit, is always there on the day expected, sometimes the day before. Benefits are nice, plenty of work. I enjoy the atmosphere. Management accessible to the top. A very comfortable place to work...not the usual *corporate* atmosphere. I had plenty enough of that before coming to Breitner. Like I said, very comfortable place to work. I don't dread turning on the computer in the morning, and that means a LOT nowadays.
I also worked there for several years. sm
It was an excellent place to work, but you do have to learn the account. QA is very good, they will not accept sloppiness. I felt it was one of the best companies I have worked for; I learned enough to do editing for another company, which is why I left. It was a very good experience.
When I worked there about 3 years ago, they were in .
I worked for them for a few years...sm
You are welcome to e-mail if you have any questions.
I worked for them several years ago as IC sm
don't think they offer employee status, they paid on time, checks never bounced and always had work and were very nice people to work for. Tech support was very good, they had internet-based platform. Back then they paid 7 cents per line and had both fulltime and parttime status, don't know about their pay now. I would go back if I could.
Worked there for over 2 years...
They've had a lot of turnover recently, both of in-house employees and at-home transcriptionists. Basically the only reason I stayed as long as I did was because the scheduling department was flexible, and their PTO was decent. However, with the new payscale, I was making considerably less money and felt that was very unfair. As far as their DOS system, the system is very simple and generally speaking trouble free. However, loading demographics and downloading work was very time consuming (and unpaid). QA policy stunk too. They were very inconsistent in checking your work, and I feel that as long as someone is working hard and doing a good job, they should NOT be docked for errors. They call it a QA bonus...I call it a way to lead people on and pay them less than what they're worth! I left Transolutions a couple of months ago and have never looked back. I love where I'm at now and feel that I'm being treated fairly again. I'm sure it's a good fit for some people, and everyone has to find their place. For me, it was becoming more hassle than it was worth and was time to move on.
I have worked for DSG for 4 years...
and the only time I have had a problem with low work volume is during the holidays when people/docs are on vacation. From reading this board, this is a problem with a lot of companies, not just DSG. DSG has been my income for 4 years with no backup job and I have been fine.
I worked for MQ for 12 years and always had a
second job as an IC. They did not interfere with each other and no one ever asked. Of course, I did not use MQ computer, but my own. As far as I am concerned it is no one's business but your own.
How many years have you worked for them?
Worked there for 2 years...
but left about 6 months ago. They were nice to work for, but I left because they were going through a LOT of changes. A fair number of management people left after the president left last summer in the middle of a major software change-over. At that time they were also restructuring their pay scale, and with the change I was going to take about a 20% decrease so said adios. However, there are a few people on this board that speak very fondly of Transolutions, and I really had no complaints until I found out they had no problem giving me a cut in pay after 2 years.
As far as scheduling, you do have to set a schedule and pretty much stick with it, but they are very easy to work with if you need to switch things around here and there. 32 hours is considered full-time with benefits. Benefits were decent.
Platform was DOS and APEX. I never really worked on APEX but didn't hear a lot of good things about it...but hopefully they've refined it over the last few months. I didn't mind DOS; it was very simple and straightforward, but not a lot of bells and whistles.
Good luck. Hopefully others with more recent experience will be able to give you more info.
I have worked for them for years sm
I like the old software better and InScribe sucks, but I never have had any problem making lines or getting help when I needed it.
What I can tell you is that there are some good team managers and some really terrible ones there. Of the ones they have now half of them were never MTs and aren't very good. They tend to over hire right now ramping up for some new things and that is a strain on all of us.
Now if you get one of the good team managers and you get an account with enough work you'd be happy and there are no guarantees.
I have never run out either and have worked there 8 years. nm
It was like that when I worked there 2 years ago...
you would think there would be a way to get that cleared up a bit better...I had bought an EQ50 equalizer from Koss and that seemed to help a bit...
Have worked with them for 5-1/2 years...
I have not had a problem getting paid. I have several co-workers who have been here almost as long as I have, and if they have problems getting paid, I don't know about it. Not saying there was never an issue with it; all I can say is I have not experienced it and I have not heard of any of my co-workers experiencing it. Before we got direct deposit there were problems with the payroll company sometimes mailing checks late; however, for the last 4+ years with direct deposit my pay has been there on or before the date on the list they gave us as to when to expect the deposit. One person's experience does not mean that it happens to everyone...that is why you see positive and negative posts about most of the companies on this board.
I worked for MDI for years
I worked for MDI for years and it paid a great line rate, gave you 24 hours to do your lines and treated me well. I believe they do have part-time as well as full-time. (I only left because I needed a job with benefits. They said they would take me back whenever I wanted to come.) They are statutory, so they might fill your bill. They are also very flexible schedule-wise. I was always treated very professionally and had plenty of work there, no complaints at all. A friend of mine (an extremely experienced MT) thinks Axolotol hung the moon, and I have heard many good things about them from others as well. I have friends who are happy at Acusis, Landmark, and Webmdx. Another option would be to market yourself to docs (you can make more money that way, I think). I hope you get what you want. It seems that flexibility is getting harder to come by these days, sadly enough. Good luck to you! I hope you find what you are looking for.
I worked for them a few years ago
And not much has changed from what I've read and heard from others...
They charge $5 a week to use their software.
They pay weekly but ONLY via PayPal. Paypal charges you 2.9% per transaction to have your money sent to them.
They didn't pay for spaces when I was there and paid on a 65-character line (again, no spaces) AND when I had left they didn't pay for any of the stuff in the template.
The plus is that they had decent accounts with decent dictators.
I have worked for them for almost 2 years. sm
Here are the facts:
1. They have plenty of work. I work for them full time, but you can choose part time or IC.
2. They are full-service, acute care, clinic, you name it. There aren't just a few accounts, there are more than 20 major ones. As you can see, some of these posts are speculation from people who do NOT work there or only work part time.
3. You would most likely speak with a woman.
4. You can get benefits anywhere in the U.S., and all of us do get very generous benefits.
5. If you need more work, just ask, and it will be given to you.
6. Pay is on time.
7. Pay is consistent with what other nationals are paying.
8. They leave you alone and let you work and don't bombard you with e-mails.
The replies to some of these posts are pretty typical because it is blatantly obvious they are made by a person/people who do not work for the company because the information they cite is laughable for anyone who currently works for the company. There is at least one person who comes on the board and trashes them any time anyone asks. Everyone I know who works for them just LOVES working there.
DON'T go there! I worked there for 6 years. sm
Email me if you want. You are only a number and you are editing work from overseas. They have no care whatsoever and I was jerked from my accounts when I had to take off for surgery.
I worked for MQ for 3 years - sm
I was always paid on time. QA was excellent. They left me alone UNTIL....
they changed over to EMPLOYEE STATUS ONLY..
Converted all the good accounts to VR and left straight transcription for the worst of the worst dictators.
That's when they hounded me if I was 2 minutes late to sign in to work. I had to leave because I am disabled and they didn't want to work with me regarding a more flexible schedule. As a statutory employee, I did great with them, until they did away with that and you had to be either full time or part time EMPLOYEE status.
I don't know about the other. It's hard to say, because what one MT thinks is the pits, another MT will say it's heaven. This is a decision you will have to make based on all the facts you collect and the research you do.
Worked for them years ago
Can't say what they're like now, as my experience with them was a number of years back. ONLY problem back then was that they were a bit disorganized when it came to payroll, sometimes coming via courier (and late), sometimes via mail. Hopefully, they've ironed out those problems by now. Otherwise, nothing negative to say (but, again, my experience is from some time back and ANY company can change in a heartbeat, as many of us have experienced, with new personnel, etc.).
I have worked for them for 5 years - sm
They are okay to work for - nothing special. We have been very slow lately with no explanation other than they are working on it. Communication is almost nonexistent. They did not even recognize MT week at all. No card, no thank you, nothing....They are okay if it all you can find.
I worked for the Q for years.
We know how they treat MTs in general. But for MT week, they ''pulled out all the stops.'' One year we got (I am not making this up) a ''rape whistle.'' One year a keychain. Another year a little leatherette box for your desk that held note paper. The best gift ever was a pair of fingerless support gloves with some light support stays sewn along the wrist. I actually still have and use those. Need I mention that each and every ''gift'' was emblazoned with the company logo?
Thanks, but I'd just rather be paid well, treated properly and not jerked around than get funky trinkets from my employer. It's like getting a birthday present from the steparent that beats you every day. Never really makes up for the pain....
I worked there for two years. sm
mostly they were nice but one person AP can make your life miserable if she wants to.
I have worked on VR a few years now with
no lawsuits, good quality of work and where do you get lawsuits from? I think most on here probably just cannot do VR.
