If you'll read through past posts you'll find lots of
recent info. Why do you need menitoring if you already work as an MT. Unless you do clinic work most companies will require you to work at least one weekend day, at least initially.
If you look in the archives you'll find several
posts regarding problems with getting paid. They don't pay that well to start with. I have 20 years of experience and they offered me 8 cpl. I don't know anything else about them, but the payment issue would be enough for me to stay away.
If you read through the archives you'll see not
much good about this company, especially from people who refused to listen to the issues that others had and went to work for them anyway. They offshore big time, constant turnover. I wouldn't consider it.
Worst company to work for. Read the archives and you'll
be hard pressed to find anything good about this company.
If you'll read more carefully you'll see
I was referring to AFTER she's missed out on a job, having a friend do sort of an audit to tell her what what was wrong with her test she submitted -- not cheating.
There is tons of stuff in the archives and if you'll
scroll down the current page you'll see lots os posts about them too. For the most part everyone seems to be very happy with TT.
It is an Indian run company. If you'll check the archives they
have been asked about several times the last month or so. There has been nothing good said about them.
If you spend a little time reading the archives you'll see
lots of posts about how many are unhappy at Focus and are looking or left.
Yes, don't even think about it. If you'll read the
archives there should be plenty of information why you should look elsewhere.
I'm sorry about your experience - you'll always find at least one QA
person like that. If you are only hearing negative, you may also want to consider this: QA usually also have a very high quota of reports to meet per day and don't have time to give extensive feedback a lot of the times so you will only hear if you are doing something wrong - does that help at all? Consider no news on the others good news.
We'll find out more tomorrow (4/25)
We have a conference call about this Ceridian screw-up, and I'll ask specifically about the Equifax thing, but have a feeling it's legit - unfortunately like all the rest of this.
Go to work for them and you'll find out
If you read the archives you should find what you are looking for, although
you won't find much good about them.
If you read the archives you won't find much
good about them. They switch you from account to account. They have had management problems for many years. Their line counting is difficult to figure out and they dock you for lots of things. They also offshore and are currently training women in Trinidad and somewhere else so you know what that means. Some of their accounts are teaching hospital and I worked on one of them and the dictation quality was horrendous. If you're a newbie I doubt they'd put you on it though.
There are worse companies out there, but I still wouldn't recommend TRS.
Indian company. If you'll search the archives lots of info
I guess you'll find out when you go to work there....sm
Just be sure to not resign from Transcend until you see if this other company is truly all they told you they would be.
I don't think you'll find any work here..unless you have a C-phone...
Not much work here to keep me busy or even make my line requirements.
but I'll bet the CEOs find it funny. After they
Archives doesn't mean it is old info necessarily. If you'll go to the main company page, typ
JLG in the search box, make sure the MTStars circle is checked and click on search you'll find lots of current information. This is considered archived information but there are posts are recently as last week there.
If you read the archieves you'll see Spheris
is NOT a good company.
The pay is very low and they also offshore. If I can find the link, I'll post it.

that pays hourly and allows you to work at home, that just isn't the way the business works. I'm not saying that those type of positions don't exist, just that they are extremely rare. Now if you worked on-site that is a different story.
They offshore. Lots of posts about them if you'll read
If you read your paperwork, you'll see that is an option they have. Also, the state of Illinois
does not have right to work law, any employer can fire you at any time without cause.
Read the content of the website and you'll see the Phillipine association. nm

I'll take that hat!
Take ur hat off to me cuz I work at MedQuist, have plenty of work and make a lot of money - and they do leave me alone which is kewl. Been with 'em for 8 years too!
hey, it's ya'll
No, no, no, it's Yu'll for "you will"
I think you'll like VR
I work for MDI on the eScription VR platform, good accounts, good pay, and I need team mates to help with the backlog of work (I'm on 2nd shift). I highly recommend it. I have been on VR for 3 years and have found it more profitable than straight transcription, and much easier on the wrists/hands.
now I'll be looking for one
because I think the hours thing (except so they have an idea of when you work to regulate work flow) is bull.
I'll try.. sm
I am happy at OSi. I've been with them for two years now. I've been doing well with them. My main account was a little low on work over the summer, but is back to being pretty busy. Even when it was low, I had my backups. I've been there long enough and have worked on enough accounts that I can grab backup work from several different accounts but usually don't need it. We use the Extext platform and I love it. The best part of it is being able to pull up samples, past reports, etc. That is what helped me move into being able to do op notes which I hadn't done before but now do plenty of. On my main account, I barely have any ESL and the few I do are very easy. I've worked on VA and there are a few more ESL on those, but only a few were very difficult. To compensate, you are allowed a couple of blanks on those anyway, and like I said, when you can pull up other reports for these dictators, it helps a lot anyway. Compared to what I see in some of the job ads, I feel I'm compensated pretty well. There are frequently incentives offered. For the most part, I'm left alone to work and am not bugged. I'm able to do above my 12,000, lines per pay period and also work as an IC with another company to boot. I am paid by direct deposit on time, every time. Never ever a problem with that. The couple of times there has been a problem with my check, say an incentive having been left off or something like that, I've had a manual check cut and in the mail right away. Hopefully this post will be allowed to stay and won't be overrun by those that weren't happy at OSi, but I couldn't be happier there.
You'll get it ----
It won't be the correct amount, but you'll eventually get it. I'm outta there. Today was my last day.
Thanks. I'll do that. NM
You'll never know if you don't try.
I would just go for it. Make sure though that you are checking and double checking everything, and look up anything you don't know for sure. This will take a while but eventually you'll get used to the job and you'll be glad you tried it. Good luck.
and you've never made a typo?
I'll 3rd IT
Allstate Transcription started a mentoring program that is very much needed in our industry, and I am pleased to say that I have been a team player for two or three months now! In this program, Deb, the owner, gives people who have gone through some kind of course an opportunity to work on real accounts with real TATs. In addition, she provides MEGA feedback with all kinds of documentation to sites for the interns to read. Deb nor the editors can make anyone do anything. The intern has to WANT to learn more and improve and has to have the capacity of breaking a habit of doing things their way versus the AAMT BOS way. Deb will do flips backwards just to help someone succeed with multiple second chances. In the real world, if you can't produce an accuracy of 98% and above, you will be terminated. In Deb's defense, she cannot continue to allow a person who is not progressing to fill a slot when she has others begging to get into the program. It seems that everyone here has a clear understanding of the bigger picture ~ producing 98% accurate work to a client so that they can provide the BEST care to the patient - afterall, it is the patient whose well-being is at stake here.

I'll try them both. Thanks.:)
Thanks - I'll try that! - nm
I'll second that!!!
The reason I work for my current company is that they keep all work in the US! I am so glad that I found them!
I'll bet that you do.
You'll never see
10 cpl from MQ even if you truly, truly deserve it.
I'll second that
at least animals are honest about their dishonesty.
I'll second that!
I was hired by Cymed in the fall of 2005, and it really wasn't a very bad place to work, although not the absolute best, but then SPi bought them out in the summer of 2006, and the changes REALLY became evident in the fall of 2006. I started running out of work more and more each day, the account managers were constantly changing, my pay checks started getting screwed up (they stopped paying me my second shift differential that I always got with CyMed), and the office staff was just plain RUDE. I finally got completely fed up and left back in February 2007 and went to Keystrokes and have been 1,000 times happier!
i'll second all of that!
I'll second that!
Love, love, love it there! Never been so happy with a job before!
