In Reply to: Sten-Tel? sm - Sten-TelMaybe
I have not had personal experience with them, but had a friend who worked for them in QA. She had to leave and find another job because not only was work very famine like, but what came in was real garbage from India. I hope this helps some.

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.
I heard about it from my
supervisor. It is going to be adjusted according to what level you are, level 1, 2 or 3.
Me too. Never heard of them
They told me 6 to 6.5 cents per line. Yuck!
one of my doc's while dictating telling another she was leaving for Louisiana to help out. I'm sure it will pick up again soon.
What is this, never heard of it.
I heard that from an MT there, too, and...
...since I personally know the person who did the QA on on the account she referred to, I asked her and she said "no!"
Interestingly, the MT who claimed they outsourced a particular account did not even work in the same group.
I don't know. Never heard of them.
I have heard a lot about this
company not paying its MTs many, many times.
Never heard of them. - nm
I heard about their QA and that
it is very difficult. I heard they will fire you without warning for a low QA score. That is just what I heard, not sure about it tho.
Never heard of one in GA
Where did you see info a a Sten-Tel in Georgia? I work for Sten-Tel in MA.
I have never heard of that and how does someone because a pet?
Honestly, how does this work? There is no way for them to preselect all of your work is there. I just do whatever comes up in my queue as I am sure everyone else does. I just happen to be on a very busy account and I am sure others feel the same way, work-wise. I do not understand the attitudes.
Where did you see their ad? Never heard of them before. nm
Heard about that
Yes, I just talked to someone I email who works for them and she said that also, about not getting down time pay if your QA is under 97%. I work limited part time so don't ever get down time.
I can't keep up with all the changes and inconsistencies. I don't like the new phone system either. Have to jump thru hoops to talk to someone and then you aren't really sure if you are talking to the right person. Yes, venting. That's okay. It is nice to have someone to talk to and see if others feel like you do. Do you think things will get better??
No, not heard anything.
Has anyone heard anything from
I am still owed money and haven't heard anything. Each time I call I get voicemail. Does anybody know if the company is still open?
from what i heard...
one of the hospitals on oahu outsourced to heartland (they released MTs of 30+ years), and i heard that the quality of the reports became real bad due to the people in heartland not having good english skills.
Me 2, heard nothing at all
must not need them too bad
Anyone heard of them?
Pay? ESL overload? Benefits? Enough work? Platform?
Has anyone heard of
this company, MedEDocs, or Bob's PCWerks?
From what I have heard, they have sm
several new accounts starting soon. They are growing and that is reason behind the ads. I work there, love it and have no problems. I don't plan on leaving.
Last I heard sm
It was Tues - Sat or Sun - Thurs schedules and 8 1/2 cents per line if you worked the 3rd shift. They wanted 40 hours per week full time, insurance kicked in after 90 days, and direct deposit. They send you a PC, I believe.
i heard from them...
a few months ago after passing a test. the person i spoke with (forgot her name) was very nice and offered me a starting pay of 8 cpl. i dont remember much, but i decided not to take the job and emailed her to let her know i had accepted a position with a local company. it was nice that she made the time to respond back and wished me well. i remember some negative posts after that about a lot of ESL accounts. sorry, thats all i remember.
I heard sm
that it's different for different accounts, either 8 cpl 65 char or $1.10 a report, but don't know that for a fact.
Consider yourself heard!! You can do this....
nose to the grindstone... take a deep breath... loved your ending!
has anyone ever heard of
a company named Medical Transcription Plus, Inc., out of Georgia? Any info is greatly appreciated. TIA.
Anyone ever heard of JLG?
If so, what are your thoughts on the company?
ANYONE HEARD OF TNI?
There is an ad in the local paper for them, just wondering. Thanks.
Anyone heard of SPi and if so
it is a good company to work with? TIA.
WE WANT TO BE HEARD!!!
We work ourselves for hours on end, get cheated for lines but get yelled at to do more more more. There are sometimes better ways but the head honchos want to make all the decisions.
In other fields companies allow their employees to provide input, suggestions, have round table discussions, powwows, whatever but in this field we get the orders from the power hungry managers who in many cases don't have nearly the experience or training that the MT's have. That is disheartening too.
We are not allowed a voice, we are not treated like people, only a number. Do this do this, type type type but don't ask for anything, do as you're told and don't ask questions. We know what's best because we have a title by our names. That is total bull malarky.
So what we want is to be heard. That is why you see negative comments here. The majority of the MTSO's don't care about our ideas. In fact they don't even share other MT's names or schedules or emails sometimes for fear that they will try to have a life away from the MTSO. What is wrong with having telephone discussions or get togethers somehow without being yelled at or something that does not even pertain to you or listen to some managers sound like idiots?
A voice. Thank you MT Stars for the voice, now if only the MTSO's would give us a voice without fear of giving up a little bit of power. It is a honkin joke anymore and yes we are totally fed up.
We just want to be heard
You are so right! Agreed! Very, very few MTSO's appreciated a good MT when they have one. One company I worked for never paid -- did this to many -- another sent me NSF checks. I am working two jobs now. One I love and one I hate because of certain QA people who all tell you to type things a different way. This is all confusing to the MT. It's not worth the headache for the small amount of money and no benefits. I love what I do, but I hate what is happening to this field. Something needs to change.
of Medline, Inc.?
Just heard about it myself, and sm
I've googled on it. There's nothing out there yet, but there probably will be soon. I'm keeping an eye out--well, a Google eye, that is, LOL!
Never heard about this...
Wow...I never heard about this one. I just quit SPI a few weeks ago for a much better company. I guess it's a good thing that I did!
7 cpl last i heard
have you heard of
Bite the Wax Tadpole?
No, I have never heard of this - (sm)
but I don't get it. How could your fingers on the keyboard have anything to do with the transmission? I'm not following. Not computer savvy I must say, but I can't wrap my head around this one. Thanks
KS 300 last i heard
Anyone heard of
United Transcription? Do they have a good work ethic, steady work, set schedules, pay any good, etc... any info good or bad will save me a bunch of headaches.
Thanks so much!
Anyone heard of
ACMR Transcription Service?
Hey..have you heard anything?
Can you email me? Just wondering what your status is and wondering if I should bother with it
Huh??? Never heard of that....
I have been with KS for about 5 months now and I have never been given access to any boards. I have never even heard of anything like this. This sounds very strange. I have 2 accounts at KS, and I have never been told that I have to make inquiries on a message board. Again, this sounds very weird to me. It doesn't even sounds like Keystrokes.
Never heard that they do.
DTS... anyone heard of them?
Has anyone heard of Digital Transcription Systems, Inc? Any and all info. would be appreciated. A friend of mine e-mailed me their web site and told me to check them out. She knew I was looking into other companies. She has a friend who works for them. I have not talked to the friend, but hope to soon.
That's what I heard too
I just took on a new secondary account (not hem/oncology, though) and they were super busy getting all of the new hires set up, and when I was talking to the office about getting set up for my new backup account, they told me that they had finally filled all the positions.
Anyone heard of
MedScribe out of Indiana? I have looked on here and can't seem to find any information. Any comments or information would be appreciated. Thank you.
Anyone ever heard of MD 2 MD? nm
No, but heard of MD 20/20.
I have heard
that the main company itself is pretty decent; however, they take on smaller MTSOs. I had some experience with them in this capacity. A small MTSO who had been in my area for a long time joined with MD-IT. They took over my in-house department, with the facility outsourcing to MD-IT. We were offered positions with this service. However, the owners of the small MTSO were new to MD-IT and did not have their stuff together, not really knowing the ins and outs. They promised us things that did not come to fruition, and thus I did not go with them. I believe they did this to get our docs to get on board with the outsourcing, as they were dead set against it. The docs were fine with it as long as they knew their transcriptionists would be doing the transcription. We were mislead in many ways, including insurance coverage, etc. The docs were hoodwinked because only one Transcriptionist went with MD-IT because she had not worked enough to collect Unemployment.
Has anyone ever heard...
of a transcription company named Hoffman Transcription in Utah? They have an ad on MTD's job board. If you know of them and pros and cons, please enlighten me how they are. Thank you.
