Nightingale Transcription
Anyone ever worked for or heard anything positive or negative about Nightingale Transcription?
Have an interview with Nightingale tomorrow...

Anyone heard of them??  I can't seem to find much on them.  I tested with them over a month ago, and they called today for an interview tomorrow.  I have no idea what to expect from them, but I do believe they hire IC, and they may pay by the minute.  Part-time is only 200 minutes a week.


I just started working for Sten-Tel this week, and so far I like it.  Things could change though, so I'd like to keep my options open.

Post below stated a warning about lartech not paying--be careful with this company if this is true.
Lartech

I have read the post below but I wanted to know if anyone has info on this company that works or worked for them.


Thanks


 


Lartech...sm

They have an office in India and one in Texas.  I'm working for them now and have been for about a month.  Everyone I have dealt with is very good to work with.  The account I am on is very nice, very few ESL, lots of editing (may be a plus for some) and a small amount of standard transcription.  Pay is decent,  and on time.  They don't have DD, but have said they are looking into it so hopefully they will soon.  They have incentives for when you get over certain line amounts each pay period, and those amounts are not hard to meet either so can pretty much count on the incentives each paycheck (at least that is my experience). 


I'm happy there. 


Lartech QA
HI:  I have been working for Lartech for over a year now as a QC and I have several MTs working under me who I correspond with on a daily basis and they are all based in US. I simply love working for them-T
Lartech
It is very sad to see people being racist.  I have been working with these people for over a year and wish to continue working with them.  Yes, they are Indians but my experience with them has been much better off than working for many other non-Indian companies and I have never experienced any discrimination against me or any other person for that matter-T
Lartech pay
Pay is inconsistent and has been changed to once a month. It is demeaning and now we have all been messaged that the checks are going to be even MORE late, it's been 5 weeks since my last check.
Lartech
Interested in discussion with someone who works for Lartech now. 
Lartech
I use eScription with Lartech.  Would enjoy meeting other ladies who work them as well.

Any comments on Lartech????
Try Lartech.

I believe they hire new graduates.  They are very nice and good to work for, pay is always on time, it might be a little low (around 6cpl and 3cpl for editing) but it'd be a good place to start. 


If you can get a private IC to mentor you that'd be good too.


I took my first job (3 years ago) with a private IC and she paid me 4cpl for a month then 5 cpl after that.  I stayed with her for 5 months, made decent money and learned a lot.  I was able to go from working for her to a really good, steady job with a nice company.  It's worth it to take a lower line rate if you can get the one on one with a mentor. 


 


Best of luck!


Was it with Lartech?
It may bite me in the backside, true, but I have a small business of my own and, although I do not have employees to pay, I know how tight things can get. Personally, I would get a 90-day loan from the bank to pay the MTs until the payment came in from the client. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt because I see the number of years they have been in business and know that they could not have been in business for any length of time if they were flat out not paying the MTs---which I have found no evidence of.
RE: Lartech
The previous posts I read about Lartech said they do pay on time and it's accurate. I'm in the same boat, waiting for my first check, but this 60-day pay cycle is the client's doing, not Lartech's, so I'm not holding that against them. It is hard to stay motivated, but I really like the account and they have been sincerely appreciative that I'm staying on with them.
LARTECH Healthprime
Would be greatly appreciated
Lartech? Anyone here work for them?

I applied just this morning and got a call this evening.  They offered me a job without testing.  There is a paid trial period where they decide if you can do the work according to what I was told by the recruiter.  The pay is not bad, better than I am currently getting at any rate, and I was assured after the trial period it can/will go up. 


I am wondering if anyone has experience with this company.  It seemed a bit odd to me that I would get hired without testing, but I'm new to the industry so maybe it isn't that uncommon (just under a year working as an MT). 


Thanks for any opinions or advice!

They are training me this morning to work on thier software as an editor. So far, they seem like very nice, friendly people and very helpful.  They seem to be desperate for quality employees.  I will let folks know how I make out as I know alot of people are wary of them and I can understand that.

Anyone with information on Lartech?
I'm not finding any info on them and they have offered me a QA job.  They say they do not outsource to India, so I'm just trying to confirm this, and that they pay on time.  Thanks for any help!

Lartech--not paying

I've transcribed for 6 years.  I worked Lartech for two months and never saw any pay.  The owner keeps saying he didn't receive his pay.  Now no communication at all about it.  I quit since I can't afford to work for free.  He owes me at least $1000.  Nice people, but no pay.  Do hospitals really not pay?  Any way I can find out?

My LarTech Healthprime review
I have seen some older posts on Lartech Healthprime and I just wanted to give a good update/review on this company as I have 2 years of experience working for them.

Also I just wanted any out-of-work MTs to know that they hired me right out of training (I trained with At-Home Professions) but trust me, they have high standards when it comes to quality and they were patient, gave me a chance and helped me along the way.

My gripes (although this apparently is not LarTech's fault but the hospital account I work for) is that I get paid once a month and sometimes it is later than that, very inconsistent pay :(.

There is only two people I can get a hold of if I have any questions but they don't respond right away which is a downfall since my questions have to do with reports I am currently working on and I don't have time to sit around and lose TAT time waiting for them to get on, all communication is done via Yahoo messenger. They do respond to all E-mails, whether it takes them an hour or a day, they will get back to you.

They also do seem to have a problem with communication, for instance, I have been there for about a year and a half and I was only getting 7 cents standard, 3 cents editing and I asked them for a raise, he came back and said he already gave me a half cent raise and was surprised I didn't get that E-mail.

I know, the pay is super low, but I was out of school for a year looking for a job and nobody would give me a shot but they did and now I have 2 years of experience because of it, it beats the internship I almost chose to do for 6 months right?

Anyways, just wanted to get that info out there for any MT students looking to get their foot in the door, they gave me a chance from a very non-reputable school, why not you!


Lartech has been talked about recently, check
the archives.  I believe it is a 100% Indian company.  
LARTECH, waiting 2 months for a check?

Is anybody out there getting paid at least 60 days out from Lartech?  Waiting 2 months for a check?  Is this crazy?  I am having a hard time staying motivated to work because I know I will not see any money for months. 


Any recent info on MedTrans Unlimited? newest archived info is 9 months old... m

Has anything changed in 9 months? Particular worries are the invoice/pay time; one post mentioned 2 to 3 week wait and another post stated 1 week. Info from the company states pay is sent out 10 days after the last day of the billing period, but we all know what is said and what is done isn't always the same. Another concern is the platform; some mentioned it was slow and cumbersome. They have 2 platforms from what I can gather.. Are they both slow? It seemed like certain specialties were done on certain platforms, or at least that is what I got out of the archives. I really hate to jump from the frying pan to the fire so any info would be VERY much appreciated.. the good, bad, and the ugly! TIA!!


Any Axolotl employees willing to share info., platform, ESL %, etc. All info greatly appreciated. sm

Along with the platform, ESL %, pay range, lpd required, split shift or 12-24 hour window available, I would be interested in knowing your personal experience with this company, what type of relationship you have with supervisors and other coworkers, etc.  Otherwise, the all the 411. 


Thanks!


Current info on Diskriter?? Past info was very mixed. Either MTs hated it or liked it, does anyone

love working there and why? Do you easily meet your incentive pay or as past people have said, the ESL are so bad that you never meet the line count. I need current and new information. Isnt there a company out there that has a handful of happy employees or does all of them have both the haters and lovers. It is so hard to sort out fact from fiction sometimes and all of us have different expectations. It kind of goes along with the one man's junk is another man's treasures theory, I suppose.


Any new info on Amphion? Archive search doesn't provide new info (sm)
Looking for a part-time position with decent pay and decent workflow. There's nothing new in the archives.

Any info on Sten-Tel..not much info
Any info is appreciated.
Sorry, but I want info, lots of info...
before I make any decisions about what comes next in my work life.

Would you like fries with that, Sir? Welcome to WalMart! How'm I doing so far? Do I sound sincere yet? (At least these two companies are, and always will be, USA-based.)
I'd like some info as well.
TIA
Would like info
Please send me some info too. orangeblossom@charter.net
I would appreciate info also.
I am from Chicago office and have heard nothing about this.   Thanks
Does anyone have any info on...
Digital Transcription, Inc.  I am looking into a part-time job and need to know how this company is to work for.  Thanks.
Here's some info...

I asked the same question a couple days ago and got some VERY VERY negative responses.  I actually told the recruiter that they had a negative reputation on these boards and she seemed flabergasted.  I needed an employee position and they hire only IC.  Pay is 9 cents/65 char line with spaces.  They have 2 hospital accounts they are hiring for; one they will send you a computer and you will use their requipment.  The other requires purchase of a C-phone.  They are standard 4 hospital.  You must commit to a minimum line count (1000 lines per day).  No benefits.  Direct deposit twice a month. 


I was not impressed and was glad when i discovered they were only looking for IC.


Hope this helps.


 


Anyone have info on All-Med?nm

Any info on OSI....
Good or bad, platform, etc.  Thanks
Info on SS
They are a very good company to work for.  I have been with them as an Editor for 7 months.  Pay is very good.   Unfortunately I don't believe they pay for spaces, but a lot of companies do not anymore, so therefore, you would have to decide if that is acceptable to you or not.  You can get a very flexible work schedule.  The only thing they ask is that you work when you are scheduled.  For a while, there was a lot of emails being sent out, but that has significantly decreased since certain people are gone now.  Every company has its ups and downs as we can read on these boards every day.  SoftScript is not perfect, but they are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be either.
Anyone have any info on
A search of the archives produced very little information, but I have seen them advertising several times.
Thanks for the info
