I have read all of the recent posts that came up
when I searched, was wanting more information as it did not answer all the questions I had, that is why I was asking someone to email if they could give me more specifics. Thanks.
Read all the recent posts about TT and KS but..

if some of those who work at these companies could email me I would appreciate it.  Looking at possibly making a change soon and just wanting to ask some specific questions and chat about your experiences with them.  Thanks!

Yes, I've read several posts about SS
and will beware. Thanks. I've learned a lot just by reading all the posts here.
I've read the old posts
before I accepted a position with them and I am glad I ignored them. I find my line rate to be very fair compared to what I have seen advertised for other companies, no it isn't the 14 cpl that I used to get on my own but who would expect that now anyway :). I have never had any problems with them. Pay has always been on time, the QA and management are always quick to answer any questions I have and they leave you alone during the day. IM is only used for quick problems and I can count on 1 hand how many times they have IM'd me, other than my first 2 days to see how I was doing and if I needed anything. To each their own though, everyone will not be pleased with the same companies.
I know there are other posts, I've read them...sm
I'm strictly looking for people with good experiences with DSG, not problems with them. I know there are some MTs who work there who are happy, a friend of mine knows someone who loves this company, so it can't be all bad. Those are the people I'm asking to hear from. Thanks anyway:)
well I've read all your posts and responses and
no one has been ugly or attacked you at all

Posts from April said everyone gets 8.5 cpl/newbie or experienced. Recent posts said
recent posts...
Pay is late. Recruiter takes forever to get back with you, if ever.
there are recent positive posts; look below
they pay on time, direct, I have had the same supervisor and QA for 4 years now, they are helpful and nice, insurance not so great, large deductible, all other benefits are good, they have productive and weekend incentives. They do expect you to meet your quota and keep a close on that. Help desk is there 24 hours.
Recent posts about them are VERY negative. Might want
see archives, recent posts not
exactly glowing.
Check recent posts about J&J.
recent posts below are all negative.
Check the archives - there were recent posts about them.
USA Only!
Most recent posts show bad as of late. nm
It's EASY to search recent posts (sm)

using Google site search.

Ex:  chase site:mtstars.com revealed all the posts written about this transcriptoin company, most recent first.

Just from recent posts there are still ongoing pay issues.
They have easy escription accounts but I can't tolerate being paid late/wrong. Good luck!
Why no recent posts about Omniscribe? Everyone happy there?
Odd ... I did a search and most recent posts from 2006.
Thanks for responding anyway. Not sure what I'm doing wrong in terms of the search feature.
Check thru the recent posts here that have them running out of work. nm
I left there several years ago, but from reading recent posts, SM
it seems to me that if it's the MTs who have been there for a couple of years or more that are are liking it fine there and sing the praises, and that it is the new hires or recently hired people who don't like it and don't seem to get work or at least get bounced around.  Just an observation from what I've read.  HTH.
many recent negative posts on Company Board
Recent posts in the archives too. Open your post and then near
the bottom click on the blue related posts to bring up most recent ones.   They pay 8 cpl, dictators are horrendous, they have very frequent turnover. 
Anyone have any recent info on Sten-Tel out of Massachusetts? Old posts were rather confusing sm
as to whether the company was Indian or not.  There is an ad up on another board for editors.  Are they offshore?  TIA.
Check the archives and more recent posts. Lots of info there.
many recent negative posts of Amphion on Company Board
Opinions on Focus. Please. I read all archives. Please most recent info. Thanks. NM
there are a couple of recent posts on the main board, bout halfway down...
Also check the archives, you could do much better for yourself...
Recent posts show them with late or nonpayment issues. Do a search. nm
Anyone have recent info on Cymed in Virginia? Oldest posts are from 09/2005- TIA

Any recent info on Landmark? I've already checked the archives. Thanks!

s/b...read these posts.

I did not read all the posts but...
11 cpl is still available in some areas if you are working independently...straight for the doctor...especially out west, but then you have to pick up work,deliver, etc., or work 'in house'. My relative in Washington State was getting 14cpl !!! Then again, she was young, blond, and beautiful! Might have gotten a higher cpl just for that!!! hey! facts of life.
read the posts further down re DRC

This makes me sad.  They always stayed under the radar, had stable crew, never a bad post. Hope it is a temporary rough patch. I always thought if the recruiter you talked with had been there for years (versus 3 or 4 days like most) it was a sign of a good company.


You just don't get it. Read posts above and below.
Do you think the T-shirts from China are of better quality than US-made shirts? You just don't understand...
You MUST read TTS posts below under

You do not have time to filter through the rest of the garbage.  If someone's post is not useful and contributing, then ignore it.  Don't even respond.  This interview alone may not make a difference, but when you add it to the next one, to the complaint letters, etc. there is a combined effort that can make a difference because of course you want it to go beyond one letter, one interview, one complaint, one industry.  Trickle up so to speak. 

I have not read your other posts sm
nor will I waste my time. I am quite offended by the comment of being an MT is not that hard or special. Its comments like that which have put this profession down where it is.

Obviously you are not a professional MT or you wouldn't even think that much less say it.

Those of us who have been in this business any length of time have been through it all. It is a difficult profession. The knowledge we must have to turn out a perfect medical/legal report is unreal. The doctors who dictate the stuff could not put together a report as we have.

Over the last few years with VR coming along and everybody and his brother and sister wanting to be an MT, the quality has gone to pot and it seems that it is an accepted fact which is very sad.

BTW, yes I am one of those MTs who go to the doctors office and talk in medical terms but I dont' tell them I am an MT because they usually ask what I do for a living. You know what? Being able to understand and communicate with these doctors has saved my life in the past. How about you? If you are an MT, then I dare say with your attitude, you don't have a whole lot of pride in what you do and consider this to be nothing more than a typist job!
The details have been given already. Read the posts

You want more precise specifics, leave an email address.  I'm not putting my head on the block with specifics on a public board.  

Do we have to go through THIS again?? Read past posts! .....nm
Did you not read all the posts about no work, that if

you had bills to pay this wasn't the job you would want? 

I read below posts and don't see whether they require ULD!
If you are not wanting to read the posts, don't. (SM)
There is no need to harass posters just because you aren't agreeable to what they post.

Please, please, please....read past posts.
They should give you enough warning.

I have already called the management company who manages this building. They have no knowledge of a JAX Transcription who currently occupies or who will be occupying.

I need the suite number in order to check it out. There are several businesses in that office building. The rent in that building is very high...doubtful that a new company would start out in that building because of this.

If I have the suite number, I can go and see who actually occupies the suite. BUT, according to the management company, there is no such company in their building. This is the same building that Transcend is in. I have called Transcend and they have never heard of this Company. If you call the phone number that is provided in the posting by this company, you will get a regular answering machine. I think this is totally bogus.
Have you read the posts on the MQ board?? You might
Do you read posts before responding?
for the last time, if you read the posts and
had your listening ears on; there was NO NEED FOR ANYONE TO REPLY.
No, not at all. I did not even read the Grinch's posts
It was my own griping that got to myself. Note: Post. Sometimes a person does not realize how much something bothers them until they put it in writing and there is the first step toward working toward a solution.
I can say, however, Grinchy bully did teach me 1 thing: Poverty of material items, even food pale in comparison to poverty of the soul.
If you read the posts in the archives you

will run as fast as you can.  They are not are reputable company and I'm not even sure they are a transcription company at all, but a front just to rob you blind.  We call them TransScam. 

There are multiple unresolved complaints with the BBB.
