I have worked for them for about six months. They're great! Work is always there and sm

pay is always on time.  They're very nice to work with, too. 

When I was hired about 3 months ago they had
approximately 600 employees, not sure how many of those were MTs.  I know they have had several MTs since then and are hiring now. 
I have 8 years, was hired 6 months ago and it was the best sm
move I ever made. I am happy with lots of work, a good paycheck that is time and a great manager.

Maybe they did not have an opening or maybe your references did not check out. I know they checked because my old boss told me they did.

I was hired by a company 2 months ago.
They downloaded everything they needed on my computer, sent me pedals and now just waiting for training. My question is this - How long does this normally take. I have never had to wait this long to get started (not even with Keystrokes). I have sent several emails and have called the office several times and am told the same thing ---- still waiting on the hospital, we are extremely busy, etc.

I'm seriously considering sending their pedals back to them and chalking it up but I would like to know your thoughts on how you would (have) handle this. TIA

I hired on there a couple of months ago ...
and it's been a wonderful employment experience.  They were very timely in responding to my resume and setting up an interview, and I had an immediate job offer.  My account is great and so is my manager.  Everything that I was told in the interview has proven to be true.  I plan to make this my long-time home.  I feel so blessed to have found this company. 
I hired on about 3 months ago and was told then Monday a.m. (sm)
might be sketchy at times due to so many people scheduling themselves day shift. I don't mind really, I came from Medquist and now when I run out of work and have to flex my time it is on my schedule. I don't have to schedule a time to make up work, i.e. Friday thru Sunday and MQ wanted me pinned down as to EXACT hours I would be on working.

The accounts I am on are smaller than I am used to (both under 500 beds) but they seem to keep me in work most of the time. Smaller accounts and overflow accounts can be a killer though.

Good luck. Hope it gets better for you today. I am still in the honeymoon phase but I really love it here.
You will be hired fast and then wait weeks or months for work...SM
You may be asked to invest in expensive equipment, likely to run out of work regularly and not have your calls returned when you try to contact them. They do pay well but the work is NOT there more than it is, so great pay doesn't mean much. They sell it to you great but they don't deliver.
Several months ago a company called Charts in Time (CIT) hired some MTs off here. Just wondering how
it turned out for those MTs as I turned it down and wondered if I should have taken the job. Thanks.
But if you're hired at a certain pay rate - sm

per line (8.0, 8.5, 9.0 cpl) you're entitled to receive the agreed-upon line rate for EVERY account you work on - this is construed as a contract, whether oral or written (preferably in writing) - thus enforceable.

What's with this nonsense, different rates for different accounts ???  It's like working at McDonald's and getting paid $8.35 hourly to serve from the breakfast menu and $7.35/hour to serve/sell off the lunch menu.

Not when I was hired (October). Great company. :-) nm

You're lucky you got hired hourly before they did away with it.
I'm newly hired at EtransPlus. Everything sounds great
I am SO ready and willing to sit and work my hours and get in my lines, because I've been looking for a good, dependable MT job now for quite a while. I have an IC job, but the work isn't there all the time & I've fallen behind in all my bills, including rent - so it's a relief that I found something at this point.

What I'm worried about is if my employ at eTransPlus will end up just like all the other companies I've worked for in the past, lately the past few years, where the work dries up and I'm left looking for MORE work again. I'm SO TIRED of this! I just want to sit and work but can't find reliable, steady work for some reason.

I'm stressed out, poorer than I ever was, and really getting too old for all this.

I guess I'm just venting because I'm so worried that this is my last shot at some kind of steady work, and if it doesn't work out as far as work flow, I'm really up the creek, seriously. Too stressed out.

To ex eTransPlus employees, what made you quit? Did you have enough work?
Sounds great! The problem is, I have been looking for 3 months - sm
And cannot find a company like what you are describing. Why aren't you willing to name the company? Do they not have enough work to go around?
I used Emdat for 9 months and do not agree that it is that great.

It is great for the company and the doctor.  Generally the doctors are not expected to supply the information or even use their designated recorder which causes the Transcriptionist to change and fix the demographics.  The spell checker is the worst and I ALWAYS copied my finished document into MS Word to check for errors.  You CANNOT copy back into Emdat from Word. 

It is slow and boggy.  The F1 function is way over rated.  There are good points if the doctor actually does his part at his end.  Just my opinion.......

And mandatory overtime (they don't tell you that 'til after you're hired). nm
Transtech has great people but work has been low for 5 months...nm
Been there 9 months and LOVE it!!! Plenty of work, good platform, great staff.
I finally found a home.
But do you think THEY'RE great?!?!?!?
I think they're great.
I am not aware of any pay issues. No problems for me anyway. The only issue I've heard of is with the line counter having a technical glitch. It hasn't happened to me, but apparently if you check your lines during peak hours it hasn't counted all your lines until later. But they are communicating with us about it and having it worked on.

And yes, I'm a real employee, not management or paid actor, LOL.
If you never worked there, then how do you know they're great?
i think they're a great company!
If you're happy there great, but it is
the worst company I've ever worked for. 
they're pretty great
They are very consistent overall. Oh, now and then you get a nitpicky change made to something. (you can see all your reports after QA'd) But every communication i've had with QA has been very positive. I've even had an appreciative response after bring a QA error to their attention. Yes, you will be informed if you are being kept. You can even ask for a little reassurance during the probation period, ie, 'how am I doing?' When you're off of QA, QA doesn't have much of any contact with you. Your liasion keeps you updated with an e/m or two a day. That's about it.
But if you know you're a great mom and you know everyone loves you, sm
why would such a great person like you need  a card to redeem herself? 
They're great; lots in the archives
Yeah, you get bonuses based on your lines per hour rate, for all lines, not just the extra ones.  The past few months I've been able to add 2 cents to my line rate based on the bonuses.  Insurance is about $50 out of my paycheck for just me.

Lots of stuff in archives; go to the page numbers at the bottom, hit Ctrl-F for find and type in WebMedX.

The only possible negative I can think of is ESLs and slightly more difficult work, but if you passed their test, you should be fine.  You're mostly on the same accounts, so you get used to them.
Winnie you're a great trainer
You're at Medware right? A lot of former OSI'ers have gone to Medware.
Annabanana - you're a great person!
I have no word for it!  It is just ridiculous what some will post here!  Ugghhh....  The funny part is that I agree that someone should know how to spell their company name and give real facts!  There are times when I see posts stating they can't find a job, but there are spelling errors all through the post.  It kind of makes you wonder............ 
Of those, I've only worked for MDI-MD, and they're GREAT...
Good luck on your decision. Sounds like you have some great opportunities from which to choose. Go with your instincts and I'm sure you'll do fine.
I'll answer questions about PDA. They're great. sm
The ladies are great.  I had a really good account and I'd never leave if it weren't due to tax issues in my state that really suck.   If you're a good MT and keep the hours/lines you promise them,  you''ll be fine.  
you "think they're great." Would you dismiss an employee with that 1st sent?
Read that post below on hospitals? They're definitely good for great bennies! nm
As a recruiter, I'd hire an Andrews grad in a New York minute. You're doing a great job of se
They are properly trained. They are ready and able to work from day #1.
Wouldn't YOU like to have training that made you a hot commodity the minute you graduate? Maybe you should go back to school so you can be an arrogant MT and not be penalized because you aren't cutting it.

As a famous model once said Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.

Good luck in your future endeavors.

I think it depends on experience, account hired for, etc. I was hired at .08 per line sm
but after 90 days went to 0.085 and then 0.09 about 90 days after that. I am now at 0.0925 and have been there a year. I have to point out that the line rate might not be the highest but I can verify my counts, have plenty of work, get paid on time and have a great manager. To me, leaving a bad national and the headaches that went with it was well worth the cut in pay I took. Funny thing is that I took a pretty sizable pay cut but make more money ?!?!
Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
TransTech and low/no work for months and months _ don't think there are continous holidays LOL

This HORRIBLE low/no work situation has been going on at TT for almost a year now.  You can't convince me it is due to Memorial Day.  Are holidays now assigned in this world to being daily. 

That is an excuse these companies use in these no work situations, but it is due to their OVERHIRING.  Holidays just come on a daily basis, but LOW WORK/NO WORK is happening and has happened going on a year now at TransTech.  Always asking to flex into the middle of the night, EVERY weekend, etc. 

The TT mgmt checks are NEVER affected, tho, so they can continue to HIRE EVERY MT who gives them a call, and create a NO WORK situation for all of us.  The newbie MT's are cheering at first, but then realize that it hit them in the paycheck, too, and very soon it did!!!!!!!

My company has been low on work for months and months..sm
Tired of getting the same ol' message that things will pick up.  I remember the days of bonuses, making money and being able to pay my bills!  I am also wondering what is going with these companies not having work.  Is everybody sending work overseas?
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
I said "about to be" hired... not yet hired, and ........
considering it just like I would consider any job.... I didn't accept the job yet and wanted to check out the info out there.
System great, pay good, everything great, but most managers from old Edix, problems, poor people ski
when you are out of work, you are out of luck. If you are good at brown-nosing, are tough enough to be without any self-esteem, and have maybe money coming into the household on the side in case you tick someone off, then you may succeed, for a little while.

Don't ever ask questions or have problems with anything. Don't ever have a problem. Don't think you will have any control over anything you do, either.

A few 'good' managers remained when I left, but the new ones were all from the old Edix, and were completely into numbers, cared nothing for individual MTs...if there is work, you BETTER be working. If there no work, you will hear nothing, no one will help you.
You are pathetic! I have a great life, loving family, work for a great company.
You might want to fix that.

You really don't have to shout (angry person), but yes you are wrong!!

That is my last word to you!

I will add that getting a great pay check every other Friday from Medware really puts a huge smile on my face.
Oracle is great. Bayscribe is wonderful great line counts.
The trainer at OTI will always answer any questions about the platform and if you have any problems they have already worked them out, so just ask. Good luck!
YOG - Lots of work, great office staff, great money. NM
Loved Alltype! Great management and great accounts.
wah  -  i miss it there!
Hope you're enjoying those slave wages you're earning.
It's a great company -- lots of work and great pay. sm
Web site is www.mditrans.net.  If you need anymore info, feel free to ask. 
Axolotl has AWESOME, AFFORDABLE insurance.  Family plan medical and dental costs a little over $300.00 MONTHLY.  They also pay for family plan vision in its entirety.  STD, LTD, 401K with match and flex spending account, great PTO and HOLIDAY pay.  OH and paid downtime in the case you run out of work, which doesn't happen often!!! 
So you guys feel you're getting paid what you're worth with VR?
I'm not trying to be snarky. I've never done VR, so I'm trying to understand.

You're happy with your paycheck with VR? Do you find the files to be as bad as the original post implied?
So you're telling me, basically, they're bad news?
They offered me 0.095/line and you know - it sounded too good to be true, but I SWEAR the recruiter told me they do not outsource. Oh brother... I just wish they'd be honest. I really don't know what to do.
Not the OP, but they're supposed to take out all the other taxes as you're an employee with th
No, they're not losing money....they're gaining!
If a company charges their clients by the line, I'm sure that line rate does not go down even though the MTs pay does.

ASR pays about 2/3 normal line rate to its MTs. Their ultimate goal is to have the MTs do twice as much work. Therefore, the client is getting their work faster, but paying their normal rate, while corporate gets that money and the MTs get the lower line rate.

Whether the newbies want to realize it or not, MTSOs have not increased MTs' salaries in the past 10 years. They still start out at the same pay as the last century!

This used to be a very lucrative profession. Nowadays, most MTs are considered to be paid at the poverty level. You don't believe me, look it up!
Great pay, great benefits for 11+ years..sm
I've just started with this great company (eMTS).  I have 11+ years of experience and I was started at .10 per line as a regular employee, not IC, with a huge sign-on bonus, full benefits, very nice people, and a good account.  So far, this is the best experience I've had in my years as a transcriptionist.  Unfortunately, I don't believe they're hiring more right now, but you could always check in with them, they're online at eMTS.com.  The management seems to really care and they work with you.
