Can anyone give positive/negative comments on Synthescribe.
No, Heather works for Synthescribe America in Tennessee. The Synthescribe you are talking about is Synthescribe, Inc. located in the Phillipines that requires a photo ID. Two totally different companies. Look them up on the internet.
I was hired for that company and quit after a week. There is no way I would go back to working for that place. They are embarrassed of their reputation on this board because everybody is telling the TRUTH about them. I hope somebody else starts telling the TRUTH about them on the other board. They probably could not get anybody to come work for them because of all of the negative feedback!!!
The Synthescribe person has the initials of HR who the recruiter is working with....
How many reports are you averaging per day (QA)? Is there a required daily quota? Are the reports of decent quality or are there tons of corrections? Are you being paid on time? Direct deposit?
Any current QA folks care to comment on promptness of payment? Are you being paid accurately and on time with this company?
It's also known as Synthescribe
I have yet to receive my W2 from Synthescribe, and the time is getting late. Has an previous employees received a W2 yet? I am really anxious, as there is no way to contact the now defunct company whose owner's name is or was Tammy Johnson. Can anyone help me? I'm wondering if she is planning to send W2s. I believe they fired all of us in April or Feb 08.
Synthescribe America in TN
The company is located out of Tennessee and not the Phillipines.
Heather at synthescribe
I do not like outsourcing at all - I certainly do not want to work for one either.
Synthescribe editors, please!
Are any of you up to 80 reports per 8 hour shift? If so, how are you doing that? I am new as an Editor for them, and just wondering how you manage to get the 80 reports. Any pointers would be great! Thanks..........
AAMT is still Synthescribe nm
AAMT is Synthescribe .....
These 2 companies are 1 in the same. I know, I worked there for 5 months and when they lost an account they fired all of us. They transitioned the name All American Medical Transcription back in November. They do have direct deposit and they did pay me, but they make rules and changes very abruptly. Personally, I would stay away!
This is a fact and you might as well accept it for what it is -- FACT !
It would be a sevice that uses ExText, such as Keystrokes, and I don't know who else uses it. I would think that Keystrokes is as big or bigger than TT now, however, wouldn't you?
Looking for information on Synthescribe of America out of TN....
This company is Synthescribe of America
Synthescribe has taken to another board to recruit
One of their employees is all over another board recruiting and getting 100 bucks per referral. Thats just pitiful.
Synthescribe uses "several" names....
Synthescribe, Allusmts, All American Medical Transcription, etc. Who knows how many other names they also have to try and get MTs to apply with them because of their very bad reputation.
I had HORRIBLE experience with them when they hired me back in December of this past year. They had this huge orthopedics account they needed help desperately on, but when they got the work all caught up, they fired or laid off everybody. The QA manager was so mean and nasty. She send the ugliest e-mails. Found out she left or got fired also after being there for 11 years.
The company is very sneaky with their MTs and you cannot trust them at all. I would STAY FAR AWAY from them. They know how to screw the MT and the client!!!
The one recruiting is "friends" with the synthescribe person sm
and has a full time job making good money. i miss your point??
Since it is the same as Synthescribe, dont bother waiting.
You would probably not like it anyway.
Seems unethical to me to change a company name because you got bad feedback about being an Indian company.

Ad posted by Heather Rigsby for Synthescribe requests
you send a 2 x 2 picture of yourself. Is this legal? They have an office in the Phillipines, which would prevent me for applying to start with, but I certainly wouldn't apply to any company that requests a picture of me first.
Opinions please. We have established that Synthescribe and All American Transcription are ran by the
same CEO/COO..So, previously when I considered applying at Synthescribe, I was put off by the negative feedback left here so I didn't apply. Then, comes a new company, AATS, which we soon figured out was being started by the same person running Synthescribe. I am tempted to apply, but if it's the same CEO/COO, shouldn't I heed the warnings of the MTs who say not to do it. I'm confused. Part of me wonders if I shouldn't give them a try, but I think I'd be more apt to do that had it been a new company with different management. Something about a leopard not changing its spots....What's your opinion? Would you try it? Thanks
Did anyone hear from AAmT aka Synthescribe and proceed on..Just curious
how it's going and if your set up to work with them etc. Considering going forward to check it out but wanted to check with others first. Thanks
If they weren't Synthescribe, they wouldnt have the same phone number.
regardless of what they SAY.
Very serious in fact.
They are advertising a nationwide position and then selectively weeding out geographical areas. They need full disclosure or maybe they need a big fat lawsuit. Either way, I'm not kidding.
I know for a fact that MQ wants my SM
hospital's transcription (I'm a hospital employee), but they won't take overflow only. They want it ALL and won't take the account unless they get rid of the hospital employees.
I know it can be done - but not at MDI-MD. This I know for a fact.
it can be just because of the fact sm
that the work has to be done. BUT, it only turns into that if you let it.
What I have found after working for years and years as an IC that if you are an employee who puts out a high quality finished product and do your best that the companies (maybe not all of them) will usually go out of their way to make you happy.
There was a time when MQ before it was MQ and still Transcriptions Limited was such a company. This all makes me so sad that this company has been allowed to be destroyed like it has. I know there are folks who are still happy with it and I am glad, but for the ones who are not and especially those of us who were around for years and saw the other side of the company, it is very sad.
As far as IC status, its kind of a trade off really. You are giving up benefits etc to be able to be an IC and not have to have set hours. But you have to work those hours out for yourself. If you have to be an employee because of benefits then the trade off is not having much flexibility. Either way though you do have control in how you let folks treat you.
Well, I know for a fact that..........
they offshore A LOT of the work because I used to work for them for 2 years, and was always running out of work for a huge, huge account which they lost? More like they gave it to those overseas to do totally. When I did work for them, you could tell that most of that account was being typed overseas because when you had to access a former document in the Chartnet on a particular patient, it would bring it up, and actually seemed to be typed like the person did not know anything about English, let alone medical terminology which was atrocious!!
I have since moved on because I actually need to work!!
No I just know for a fact that
TTS treats their employees very poorly, does not pay on time, if ever. Will warn anyone I can to stay away from there. Not trying to jab at anyone, just trying to protect someone else from falling into that. Take a look at all the posts on this board, we can't all be wrong can we?
No it isn't; its fact
Some of us have no problem with facts.
I know for a fact that this happens...
one of the MTs I know who also does QA said she sees this all the time, that some QA people will just take out words or put in words to send the report through...so it does happen and I am sure this isn't the only company that this happens with.
what's a fact? nm
Management can't let you know anything because they don't know themselves yet. They have to have work to survive first for themselves and then will give out the work to those who are still waiting for it. It you quit, you quit, just more work for them and when it picks back up they'll hire more if need be. What don't you get, happens with every company. They'll throw you a job here and there to keep you hoping and it's up to you to stay or go.
I believe it's also due to the fact that
some people (a lot of them on this board) will look for any reason to badmouth and complain. I don't come here often for that reason either. It gets really old and discouraging to see nothing but negativity and bashing each time I come here.
I am in fact an MT. Do you not know
what benefits your company offers?
This is very true. I know this for a fact.
It's a TRUE FACT
They change that divisor however they want. It's true. I know it for a fact. I hope to see them go under!
Fact or fiction?
Fact: It was posted on this forum that Karen, the ex-HR person, was let go on terms that were less than good.
Fact: It was posted on this forum that Karen, the ex-HR person, in fact stole HR files of new hires/possible new hires when she was let go. This was the reason/excuse why so many MTs who applied at KS during this time period were never contacted about their possible hiring/training.
Fact: I know this is fact because it happend to me while I was in the process of trying to "get hired."
Fact: In the last 3 years, there have been 2 pay decreases across the board at KS. This is also posted in the archives on this forum.
Fact: Last summer when the second pay decrease was implemented, it was brought out that there had been a first pay decrease before and Lee and other management people posted on this forum that this was not true. Well, we know that was a lie as the archives tell different.
Fact: We know that many, many people cannot get past the initial interview and actually work for KS because no one contacts them. This is also posted on this forum again and again.
Fact: We know that any time some MT tries to post an honest response about their unfortunate experience with KS, all KS management including the owner get on here and call the MTs liars and bash them, blaming them for being a bad MT.
What other facts should I get straight?
Fact or fiction?
Only thing you left out is the FACT that this entire thread will probably be deleted after your last stated fact has taken place.
Fact or fiction? Please sm
I have to add one thing. You can all take it or leave it at your own discretion. It is true, as Lee knows, and as does the moderator of this board.
Lee personally handed over my personal home phone number....yes.....complete, total lack of confidentiality in its utmost form as I know it to be......to the moderator of this board.
You may call it what you like. Perhaps they felt it was for the "good" or in my "best interest". The FACT remains that this was an unlawful, immoral, and blatantly disrespectful act on Lee's part. If Lee was so concerned, she should have called me herself rather than handing over my personal info to someone else.
Disagree if you will. I have no problems with disagreeing. I do, however, have a problem with anyone who hands over my information so quickly and willingly when she is by law instructed not to do so.
I rest my case. And, I'm sure this will be deleted, also. Sigh.......at least I finally got it out of my system!
Fact or fiction
Actually, I wasn't. In fact, I have always tried to be one of the peace-makers, believe it or not.
But, you're right. I do expect to be kicked out now.
I haven't. In fact...
the thought never even occurred to me till the other day when my Editor told me another girl on the account almost went with them but chose not to. She's now in the same boat I'm in and regretting it, I'm sure. My editor knew people who worked in-house for this account but have since lost their jobs and she has no way of finding out where this account went. I definitely can't ask the owner of the company I'm with because emails go unanswered 99% of the time.
I agree ... especially considering the fact
that all I was doing was interviewing. It was in poor taste, I thought, especially considering the fact that I am an IC working PT for Transcend! Struck me as rather ironic. But really, I've encountered a lot of interviewers making comments about MQ, but mostly just the fact that they feel sad for the MTs - nothing about the company itself, until this interview.
Yes, as a matter of fact I do. sm
I haven't worked for MQ, so they, indeed, may be better than MQ. However, I have countless accounts with Webmedx and still run out of work. I can do all work types. I bounce around on many accounts. I am completely out of work some days. It usually picks up later, but who has the kind of life that they can be around all day waiting for work to trickle in? And bouncing around on many accounts costs the MT.
And there are plenty of similar opinions if you simply look over the archives.
Here's an interesting fact....
In the good old days we were paid 7 or 8 cents per GROSS line. So, even if an MT makes 10 cpl now, it is less than what we made then. And let's not forget the fact that a line was a line regardless of the amount of characters!
We're all just getting ripped off big time!
fact of life??
Currently, offshoring IS not a fact of life; however, it will become so if we all lay down, roll over, and beg for the profession to throw us the proverbial bone. I, too, have been in this business for almost 20 years, but there is no way that I will ever just roll over and play dead and just say it's a fact of life. If all of us have any passion for our profession, any compassion for our fellow man, any compassion for our fellow MT, QA, auditor, what have you, we all will not take this laying down, but will take Mary's initial letter from yesterday (can we Mary??) and send it to every senator, governor, any politician, newspapers, hospitals, clinics, etc., and get the word out to Joe Q. and Jane Q. Public, and see what everyone has to say about what has become the true fleecing of America.
I'll tell you what I don't understand; I don't understand why you are NOT outraged by the outsourcing of American jobs, any American jobs.
FACT is that was 3 years ago, sm
Things are completely different now. They screwed up, some people were let go after that happened. The MTs who did it under the table were just as guilty, they knew it was wrong and unethical. Things are not that way now at all. The only way people will know is if they try for themselves.
Why not look at it that they have embraced the fact
that the world is connected now, and everything is international. We are all in contact now and offshoring of all industries is here. Why not go with the times, stop being so prejudiced, and try to embrace change? It sure is not going to go back to the way it was. I just joined AAMT, and am glad I did. I am willing to accept change rather than keep fighting it. It is a battle already lost.
