small to medium company that works in Word or Word-based program - email me. nm
Just wanna work in Word - need company that works in WORD! nm
word for word company
does anyone know about word for word transcription company?  how are they to work for, platform?  thanks in advance!
But if you worked for a company that hired
good quality MTs in the first place, you would not have so many 100% QAs, right? Actually..I think I work in the same place : ( lol
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

Can you e-mail me the company you got hired with?
I only have 5 years of experience, but I haven't been offered anywhere near 9 cpl for clinic. I would greatly appreciate it. Granted, not looking to switch jobs any time soon, but wouldn't mind knowing where to look in the future if need be.
Hired company, but sale did not take place, right ? n/m
Not when I was hired (October). Great company. :-) nm

Does anyone what national company has been hired to handle...

ProHealth Care of Wisconsin hospitals. I heard that they have now changed to a national company to do all of their work for all their facilities.

Company that uses Word? NM
Was hired for a company that promised lots of work.

do they do this?  I checked the archives on this company before accepting the position and although there were similar complaints along with disorganization and some others I decided to give it a try.  In retrospect I should have listened to those posts.  I'm out of work for the 4th time now, there's no communication.  I don't know if my first clue something was amiss was the recruiter with her kids screaming in the background during the interview or the vague answers to questions I had clearing indicating there no transcription experience on her end.  Why do companies do this.  I have bills to pay and I always, always address this situation - is there enough work, do you run out of work often.  I know there are times when work may be low but this consistently happening.   


Company that uses MS word insteadof their platform.

Did  a search, did not come up with any.  TIA

Need a company with dialup and that works in Word nm
Need a company with dialup and that works in Word
You might want to try FutureNet. The downloading and uploading is slow depending on the size of the account, but I had to use an air card for a bit, and that worked fine. Also do a search on MtJobs for example because there are a few other companies that allow dialup and if they use an FTP site, that should work as well although a bit slow.
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.
Anyone know if Word ZXpressed is a good company? I don't really know very much about this particu
The ExText will be interfaced with your own Word version unless the company installed something
Word ZPressed or Keystrokes? Any info on either company? I have heard both are reputable
Need company with simple sytem that works in Word that can accept dialup - nm
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 ?!?!
The platform is Word. Their program works with Word but does not change how Word works. nm
The benefits just changed the first part of this month. I don't have them but I remember them being reasonabl for a single person. Family and spouse was not reasonable in any way (in my opinion).
ExText is integrated with Word. Auto correct is a part of Word.
ExText is a Word based platform. When the page opens for you to type the document it will be just like you are typing in MS Word.
anyone work for Oracle - do they use Word or a Word-based program - e-mail me nm
Their program works with Word and does not change how Word functions. sm
You use your own expander. Overall I feel it is user friendly and I like it.
Does the Emdat platform use Word or is it Word-based? nm
Anyone know of a company, easy clinic work, easy Word format, dependable pay? Help!
Word for Word Medical Transcription
Pros and cons please.
In his ad, he's asking for Word Perfect, not Word, if that matters. nm
The platform is not Word, but it is Word-based. I
had little Word experience and the recruiter told me to try to find a book to learn the basics of Word as their program is Word-based. 
Now I wish they would just call me back......no word no word and
What is up with these MT companies that advertise. They don't even answer. I have a great resume, tons of experience. I'm confused.
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.
I was told I could use word pad since I don't have word

I have 1 computer to speak of that I did not buy personally.  the company has their own platform and their own computer to be rented.  I would not be typing in word.  I have never had a problem testing this way before.  I am not saying certified is better.  I was explaining my circumstance.  I have my own personal computer ordered for my use and I wanted to test fast without waiting. geez.

"overtime" is not a generic word. "incentive" is a generic word. Over time means time
I was hired by them...sm

I would stay away.  I got the job and never started with them.  They want to charge rent for the footpedal.  When I asked about buying it, they said it costs $500.  When I received the pedal, it was no different than the $30 ones (seen on internet) that all the other services just give out and then toss when they break.  I felt like I was going to be ripped off. 

Thank you. When I got hired on, I was
so excited. A good friend of mine had suggested to me to try to get on.

When I got hired and told her, she asked what I was getting for a base rate. She works out of the same "region". She didn't believe me so I showed her my paperwork. I had no idea what they were/are paying anyone else. She gets 8.75 cpl. She wasn't too happy...but with MQ, not with me. It's not my fault what the game is with their pay.

I may not always have good line counts. I may get shoved around to another account or several more and my lines will drop. I hope not. I'm hoping to stay where I am but if not, then I will have to work harder. That's just the name of the game, well to me at least.

I responded to someone else in this same thread somewhere that when I left the hospital, they were doing the same crappy thing with pay. When I hired in, it was all the same "start pay". Then later they decided to change the payscale according to years of experience, even for starting. So, all the new hires -- even with less experience than I -- were making sometimes THREE DOLLARS an hour more than I was. And they didn't have to do Op Notes because they didn't know how. I was the ONLY Transcriptionist who could work on every software package they had and do every single worktype, including pathology and EP lab, etc., that they had. Really irked me. I begged and begged and tried to negotiate an "adjustment" in my pay but they always had an excuse as to why they couldn't. I quit and started with MQ.

I know that it is impossible for any company or hospital to make ALL employees happy but it sure seems like they would want to have a little more consistency in what they offer. I worked for a clinic not that long ago that negotiated your hourly wage. I told them what I thought was a high hourly (for this region and for the simple work it was) and they hemhawed around about it but gave it to me. A month later, a young 'un who was really good but still not as fast or experienced came on board with us. She told me she had been hired on for a rate that was $4 more than I. I thought she was trying to upset everyone but then she showed us her check stub...I nearly fainted. I was getting $12 and she was getting $16.

Right now, I'm happy to be here. That tune may change! LOLOLOL I hope not but it might!

Anyway, thank you for the NICE post.
LOL! I'm not the OP. I'm trying to get hired!

Sounds great, doesn't she? 

I think I'm hired...sm
I made it through what I think is the last process of being hired; interviewing with the owner. There are so many things about the company that I like, and I really want the job. For that reason, I may have been a little overzealous with the owner, but his last words were "you'll be hearing from us". I think that's probably a good sign, right?

I like the fact that they assign one doctor (with option to cross-train). You are required to type 1000 lines a day (I don't think that should be hard with the same doctor). They say you can set your own hours, but work must be done within 24 hours, and you must work the hours you set. I had a previous job that allowed cherry-picking, so I think that won't be a problem here.

Dental/health is the most affordable I've seen yet.

You accrue one day a month for time off. It's all clinic work, so no weekends or holidays unless you want to.

The best part was that the recruiter I talked to is also a Transcriptionist for them, and she's been there for quite a few years. She shared alot of information that a transcriptionist would want to know. Most times, you don't find out that kind of information until you're already into the job.

The process was very quick. I sent my test back on Saturday, interviewed with recruiter and the owner on Thursday. The best part was all this is done by e-mail and telephone!

I think they are a very organized company.
I just hired on with them. SM
They pay very well, have absolutely fantastic benefits, and very generous PTO and great insurance at a reasonable cost.   In these days, you couldn't ask for more.  Everyone I have talked to so far has been wonderful.   I am looking forward to working for them.
I was just hired there and was
was told the hourly job is only for graveyard shift,
If you were hired before Nov 1
you will get a productive incentive, if you were hired after Nov 1, nothing.  That is what my hiring coordinator told me.  No shift diff, no incentive, but they raised their line rates.  I am new, but this is what I was told when I was hired.  A word of warning, forget the any help if you have IT problems for hours or even a day.  You have to e mail them and wait for a response.
I just got hired by them.....sm

but haven't started working yet.  I'm still waiting for my paperwork, foot pedal, software, etc.  From what I read, they seem to be a great company to work for. They hire employee status only, no ICs. I believe there is an incentive program for full time (I'll be working part time, so I'm not exactly sure of what it is). They also seem to be flexible with hours worked (no strict hours or punching in, but it sounds like you have a window of time to get your work done).  I'm sure the recruiter can give you more information. The pay is pretty decent also.

Good luck!

I was just hired as an
Would love to email and keep in touch, even tho you're doing Onc.. I have done that in the past as well. Let me know.

You must have just been hired.
You can always get hired at OSi

I was hired with them and it took them
3 months to get back with me about getting going with them. Terrible company with no organizational skills whatsoever!!
We had already been hired
We are not waiting to hear back after testing.  We already received job offers and then...nothing.  They may be a great company to work for...I guess I'll never know because I accepted another job.
I was just hired there.....
if you go to transcriptionresource.com they have some info there on Probity. They are paying for my internet connection, giving me flexibility in scheduling, 40 hours of vacation after 90 days, ability to make up time if I have to rather than use pto, pay is a little over 8 cpl, paid holidays (have to work thanksgiving or x-mas, 4 hours, then get the other one completely off). Currently I believe they are looking for cardiology MTs and acute care. Seems like a nice group of people, I have worked with some of them, and I am excited about it. I'd leave you my email, but not allowed to post it. Any specific questions and I will check the board again.
Where were you hired? sm
Just curious.  Hope that you're making more than 2-3 cpl for editing.  The line counts are fair, voice quality is good.  It takes some time to get used to, some I've read like it, some don't.  Some like editing, some straight typing.  I happen to love it and I prefer the editing.  You'll love the platform.  Good luck to you !
She did me exactly the same - actually hired me,
I think, then left me hanging. I didn't hear another word so accepted with another company. Then she called me a few weeks later and said she had told me it would be a couple of weeks, but she had not. She was very nice the first time; not as much so when she learned I would not be working there.
also hired

I have also been hired to work for them and am grateful for the opportunity.  I think it will be a challenge, but I never expected MT to be a piece of cake. Everyone who I have come into contact with there has been nothing short of wonderful.


Why do you think you were hired?
