Try TransTech. They are growing like crazy and are hiring a ton of MTs
right now. I'm sure they could accommodate a weekend only schedule. They are great to work for. You can e-mail them at jobs@transtechmedical.com
She's still there. They are just growing so fast, they need more (sm)
many times in office works well for other reasons.
It depends how fast they are growing. I worked for a company in New York that sm
had 5 new accounts start, 1 a month for 5 months, that were all very large and needed 20+ MTs. They are now a larger company and do not constantly need new MTs, but I think it is unfair to judge a company by how many people it is hiring. I think it would be interested to find out how many are new positions and how many are due to MTs leaving and why they left.
They are growing, growing, growing! The best MT company I have ever worked for!
Give them a try. 
Normally very fast hiring process; however, they are flooded with apps right now. nm

Not management, donít know about Transtech, fast typist, American, what have I not covered
Let's see, all the above have been said about me. I have been truthful trying to let others know about VR but the only thing most can do who are opposed accuse you of being too slow to make a decent salary, working as management, working for whatever company they are talking about and so on. I think I have reached my fill because others do not really care to understand. I went through why if VR threw in something wrong how a trained person would know and then someone came back asking if I were an American. If you cannot comprehend something seems like you just throw anything that might stick. I have tried because I have worked on VR now for about 7 years but no one wants to hear but what woes they face.
I got so frustrated, I was continually
we would sever the relationship and I would not be responsible for paying them the $125 for the computer.  Haven't got my last check from them yet, so it might be $125 short.  Go figure.  Will keep you posted.  I was having headaches and chest pains when I worked for them.  The day after I quit, all that went away. 
TransTech hiring again?
High turnover rate or what?
Does anyone know if TransTech is still hiring?

or maybe they are saturated with applicants right now???


TransTech hiring..
I have submitted my resume twice and sent a follow up email to see if they received it with no reply at all.  I have been an MT for 17 years with only 2 places, so not from lack of experience. ??
Does anybody know if TransTech is hiring
regular MTs now?  It looks like alot of people have gone there recently and their ad lists only Speech Recognition.  I like Medware okay but just curious about this.  TIA
Does anyone know if Transtech is still hiring

Love, love, love TransTech! Not overhiring, just growing like crazy!

I have been with MQ Amherst now for 3 weeks and have continually run out of work. I know this has
been hashed out on here many times but my question is does anyone expect this problem to ever get resolved or should we simply expect to keep running out of work at Amherst forever. I know when they call me about the new pay plan and tell me it is incentive based I plan to tell them they better make sure we have work or their plan is a joke. What can I expect with this office and what can be done to correct it. I dont plan to have to work 8 accounts to get my lines in and have them QA me on accounts I have never done besides. If this problem is long standing and unlikely to be resolved it is time to either get out of that office or get out of MQ so I would like some good ideas and comments on this. We know it exists but what is the next step.
If D&L does not pay their MTs why on earth are they allowed to post here continually?

Try Transtech, they are hiring for oncology. NM
no message.
Would someone explain why TransTech is still hiring
We have some work but I'm having to fiddle with my hours. Any ideas?
I am so glad TransTech is hiring again
I used to work for Transtech - best place EVER to work - but left for maternity leave and stayed at home for a while.  I will definitely be applying for second shift because my hubby will be home to watch the kids.  It's a good day today.   
Transtech is hiring for Editscript
Give Debbie a call in the office.
Transtech will be hiring for new accounts soon

Why is TransTech hiring when I have no work this morning? sm
Why do these companies do this?  Hire, hire, hire while I am sitting here waiting for work for the past 3 hours.
TransTech - they are hiring now, good time
....
Love it - Transtech hiring for M-F w/ only 1 weekend
:) :)
When did you get offer from TransTech? We just got email saying they were NOT hiring . . .

Just wondering how we are going to pay our bills for the next 5-6 months at TT.  It has been very tough for a very long time, because of lack of work due to TT overhiring, anticipating new accounts, as all companies do -- HIRE BEFORE THE ACCOUNTS COME ONBOARD and maybe not even get the accounts when that times comes. 


My question is when were you offered a job with TransTech?????


Notice is a courtesy, not a rule and they don't give you notice when they fire you
Giving a 2-week notice is common courtesy, and in most all my jobs, I have given them that courtesy; however, a company never gives someone notice when they are firing them. In my opinion, if a company does not treat their employees right, they do not deserve to get any notice at all.

As a matter of fact, I just left a company without notice. I felt horrible about doing it to my team but not to the company. While they never messed up on my pay, I was under constant stress. They treated several other people horribly and also changed all the terms of my employment contract within months of hiring me, which was going to cost me $800 a paycheck. I am the major breadwinner for a family of five and couldn't hang around a second longer losing that kind of money.

The only reason you would not want to quit without notice is if you want to use them as a reference and/or want the chance to go back to them in the future. I was advised by a recruiter that you should never put anything on your resume that is less than a year, so you really don't want to use them as a reference anyway, and you certainly don't want to go back to them.

Messing with someone's money is a big NO-NO, especially when they are costing you $400 for a second time. Heck no, I wouldn't give these people notice. There are some great companies out there hiring right now.

Feel free to contact me by email if you would like some more detailed information about the companies I narrowed my search down to. I was very sceptical about trusting another company with the bad luck I've had (just as you have) in the last few years, but I think I finally found somewhere I can be happy at for a long, long time (of course only time will tell, but I'm feeling very optimistic).

:) Best of luck to you!
Hope Transtech is NOT still hiring, because we are all fighting for work right now OVERHIRE big time
Be careful right now, because TT has much overhired, promising something big coming up, but nothing seen by the MT's yet, just LOW WORK load.
growing
AccuStat now has voice recognition to their software and has a lot of new clients.  I run an MD office that uses AccuStat and we have had no problems ever with this company.  They have been on the ball with all of our needs, no matter how complicated!!  We have over 50 MDs and they all love the company and their flexibility!  The owner is a great lady as well....ignore the bad things you see as they are simply not true about this company!!
I don't do Rad so I am not sure if they have any or not. They are growing like crazy though, so
call them and ask. They are usually always hiring. Right now I think they are hiring for Med Rec, Oncology and maybe Rad. Call them and talk to Debbie, my supervisor. She's great.
Yes, it does, it means we are growing! :)
Why can't anyone ever see that with a service? Advertising doesn't necessarily mean something negative,it can simply mean there is an increased need for qualified MTs!
Growing business? nm

not sure if they're growing but...
i was with them not long ago and they were wonderful and i never ever ran out of work. staff was all very supportive and friendly, system was nice, line count was awesome, paid on time and accurately, no complaints at all, just couldn't squeeze in enough time to work for them with the other job. great place to work, though, highly recommend.
They are growing like MAD! This is an awesome
company. Definitely not overhiring. I have been here almost two months now and I have never been happier with my job. The accounts are good, the people are amazing, from management to tech support and even the general office staff. They treat me incredibly well and many, many others on here say the same.
Growing with a new group of
They started a group of hospitals based in TN, and are adding them one at a time during the year.  Lots of ER and acute care positions, we get emails noting the new accounts and added positions. 
the growing company?
see details inside, only provides an email response.
I am growing tired of this sm
So I am going to try to end it, here and now. I am sick to death of hearing I am selling myself cheap working for TT. I can sell my services for wherever I care to, for whatever benefits I need/want and for any line rate I want to. Since I am no longer firm enough to sell my body, I can be a flabby MT making what I feel good about making and the job I am doing to get said income. It is not your business to come on here and tell me that I am selling myself cheap, nor to brag about the line rate you get. When asked about whom you work for, suddenly you can't tell, it is all so hush hush. One has to wonder...if you told, would your supervisor get on here and contradict you? Given your grammar and spelling, I can't think you are worth the money you supposedly get paid. Contrary to what others may think, this is job is NOT about getting higher and higher line rates! I have been in this way too long to be talked to like I have fallen off a turnip truck and I don't know a certain orifice from a hole in the ground. PAY DOES NOT INDICATE THE QUALITY OF MT WORK YOU PRODUCE any more than report cards are an indication of learning. I read a lot on here (note the TWO words there). I listen to complaining about QA people and how obnoxious they are, about MTSOs who don't care about their MTs, about running out of work, about unusable platforms, difficult ESLs, falling line rates and lack of benefits. These are the difficulties of being an MT in a marketplace that doesn't value the people element in any job, and in an industry that is rapidly changing. To come to this particular board is to be bombarded not only by all this complaining, but also by constant gloating over a line rate that may or may not exist in reality. The fact is, unless we are all MTSOs with well paying clients, none of us are going to get rich doing this. We are going to pay our bills and we are going to work hard. Line rates are the same as they were 10 years ago and 12 years ago and 15 years ago. If you find a job with 10 cents or better a line, I'll show you a job where the work stinks, the platform is impossible and the person in charge has more psychological issues than an inpatient on a 72-hour hold. I know, because I have worked for a lot of them. Now, I have recently gone to work for TransTech. Sure, I took 8.5 cpl, MY CHOICE, MY DECISION. When I quickly understood that medical benefits would not total $100 a month, and that as an employee, they will cover part of my FICA taxes and that there is PTO that is figured the way it ought to be figured...8.5 cents was looking good to me. I have made 11 cpl and recently (see above). Even simply talking money, that 2.5 cents will not buy me medical insurance on my own. It hardly covered my taxes last year and I had to work a second job. I had West Nile and it didn't pay for the 3 days I missed from work because of it. I ran out of work frequently too. I am concerned about what the rest of you are concerned about. I don't like running out of work. I detest snotty QA people. I, for one, cannot abide the whining from my MTSO that greets me every time I have a technical problem or if I am sick. I don't like that I can't afford to go the doctor without insurance. I'd like to be respected for my experience and hard work too. If I am going to work extra hard, I'd like extra money for it. We who work for Transtech are bragging these past couple of weeks. Why? Because we have joyfully found a place where we can't complain about all of the above issues. We have seen that money, as in higher line rates, isn't the entire picture. We are finding that we are rapidly more productive, lines are easier to get and we have our job satisfaction back. The 10, 11, 12 cents you get, can't buy love. It can't buy satisfaction. It can't buy THE BEST QA team in the business. It can't buy the most gentle, understanding and patient manager I have ever come across XXXX. It can't buy you the thank you for your hard work that I find on EVERY report returned from QA. It can't buy you technical assistance that is on a problem as fast as a duck on junebug. It can't buy the pat on the back that I have gotten from all the QA people every time I have cleared QA on another new account. Now, 10+ cpl can't buy you love, but 8.5 got it for me!
Not sure what the deal is but the ad said they were growing or something..
and it also stated in the LOOOOOOOOONG AD that they get someone trained and then start training another person and so on. Almost sounded like they ran an assembly line where they get one MT put together  and scoot her down the line and then get another ready and so forth. Unfortunately, I do not buy that. I think this employer has come up before in discussions and it was not favorable. Also, if you read the ad, you can tell there is a little chip on the shoulders on what she expects from an MT, leaving me to believe she has been less than happy with whom she has hired in the past. In any event, I do love animals but I have NO interest in applying there.
You are kidding yourself. OSi is not growing. You cannot grow without
OSi wants to be big, but that will never happen because they will not listen to anyone about giving the MTs more instead of putting all the profits into their own pockets. All you get at OSi is your base line rate...that is it. Nothing extra for nights, weekends, holidays. They make you pay for the foot pedal and even the cheap spell checker.

You pretty much said it all when you said that OSi is choosy about who they invite to their parties!! How awful! When most companies have company parties, all employees are invited. That is pretty sad and pretty much says it all about OSi.
I figured they were growing, hadn't
ever seen them advertise until fairly recently.  Makes sense to me, usually if a company grows they have to hire more workers.  Haven't heard of anyone complaining of not having work.
Gee, could it be they are getting new accounts and growing? Geez

We are growing. You are a person not a number.
We have employees in 18 states and have full bennies. Other states ICs and SEs. Pay is decent with incentives. Good team work. Direct deposit every other Friday. Pay is correct and on time.
They have a couple hundred and are still growing. You are right about it
feeling like a small company. EVen though they are pretty big I think they really make an effort to not lose what makes them special.
And the reason the list keeps growing is because...
these companies know they can get MTs here to correct the poor quality before it gets sent to the client. Talk about cutting our own throats!
No, that is because Transcend is growing like wildfire!
We are adding two new accounts a month, and converting others. I am one of the ones that usually helps out on new accounts, so I know.

Hope everyone on the board had a happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful that I have a place to go to share ideas.
Geesh. Maybe they're growing. Ever think of that? nm

The MTSO does it by growing themselves a spine
instead of constantly trying to undercut the other guy. If all MTSOs stuck together, and charged more across-the-board so that they could pay their workers decent wages, clients would have no choice but to make their cuts elsewhere.

As long as the MT industry dontinues to delude itself with its gas-station-price-war business practices, they'll continue to shoot themselves in the foot when it comes to not being able to get quality workers, that in turn bring them the quality clients.
This company definitely belongs on the growing
Is there any way to get documentation of what, exactly, the 'misconduct' was? It sounds like they're not only being untruthful, they're also being spiteful and vindictive, just because you couldn't meet what was probably an unrealistic daily line minumum on crappy accounts, using substandard software.
Same here, but hospital jobs are growing fewer SM
and it seems most people are getting into this to be home with their kids and believe me, old as I am, I completely understand.
Definitely growth. The company has been growing steadily...sm

for the past few years.  Good platform, steady pay (direct deposit, have never experienced a late paycheck), good MT support, great bennies.  I'm happy there. 


Ads all over jobs board because they are growing and need good MTs.
Three new accounts that I know of recently and more scheduled to come on. Started here as an MT and then moved to QA. Just like any place, there is good and bad but I can't imagine working anywhere else.
They are constantly advertising because they are GROWING! They have brought on
two new accounts that I know just since Christmastime and more to come.
Still growing, just controlled growth. We would rather take care of what sm
we have and make sure that it is smooth than take on too much at once and have the problems that so many companies run into that bite off more than they can chew.

Tip: This is not the only place to advertise for openings. We have ads in other places right now and have openings for multispecialty clinics, orthopaedics, radiology and just had contracts signed for a new acute care account that will need staffing.
