Because of the shortage of work, we don't want our companies hiring more people. nm
For people at MDI-MD that say they are out of work, I see they are hiring now. Are people still
running out of work or did they get more accounts.  I am interested in this company.
You must be hiring the wrong people...

it must be bad judgment on your part, but don't lump sum the rest of us who do take pride in our work and do have great work ethics and take our jobs seriously! 

Definitely could not understand why they keep hiring people
when there is no work for us. They specifically told us that our overseas partners would work the accounts in the evening and weekends when we need help the most. Then, it's no wonder when we get up to work that it is gone. They have been working it all evening and night. I'm sorry they wasted your time. If you wait long enough, a lot of people will be quitting (me included) and you might have some work.
I talked to one of their hiring people
but that's on a C-phone account.  Maybe that makes a difference between C-phone and internet account?  Extremely nice lady too, by the way.
And the strange thing is they keep hiring people so it almost seems as though they want us to run
out of work. How has their QA point thing been working out with people on so many accounts. What a joke.
Why is OSi hiring new people when I have been out of work for 6 weeks?

I am statutory (or IC, whatever they are calling it now).  I have a main account and 2 -- count them 2 -- back up accounts.  I have been out/short of work for over 6 weeks.

Unless you are a full time employee, you get no benefits, no hourly, NOTHING.  I am amazed that they are hiring when they have people already trained and begging for work!!!

Don't they realize that it costs a WHOLE lot more in turnover to train a new employee than to keep an already-trained one happy?

I'm looking at other nationals now.  I've never been one to job hop, but I just can't take the time off any more!!!

Why have they bothered advertising or tried hiring people when they do not have enough
manpower to get it going in an efficient manner. Truly, I hope Shiela is also not the one responsible for doing payroll. That may well be too much on one person. I have worked in offices where doctors were too cheap to hire extra help and just ran us into the ground with so much work until we quit from burn out. It just not the right way to run a business, having one person do everything. I do feel for Shiela but who would want to contact her now and burden her more. BTDT
The email was not about looking to fire people. Yes, they are hiring. sm
The email stated that everyone must maintain certain levels for production and for QA in order to stay a Keystrokes' employee.

They were reassuring us that even in this depression or recession, or whatever it is being called now, we will have work to do and that they are still growing.

There are 2 openings on my account, so I know that they are hiring, and there is a new account starting next week too.
Yep, hiring again. Are people quitting or what? There never seems to be a lot of work to me. nm
You missed the point. She has people that do the hiring because she is busy with her own
responsibilities. There are just people that feel they need to talk to Lee or no one, and those people find that they do not get things done as they should because they did not go through the right people.

If you knew Lee, you would know how wrong you are. I have never worked for someone as respectful or caring of others and I have worked for a lot of people in and out of transcription. This is the ONLY company where I have ever felt that I was treated as a person. How horrible of you to judge someone that you do not know.
Maybe they are tired of hiring so-called experienced people sm
wwho get someone else to test for them. Maybe they want to hear the correct answers straight from the horse's mouth so to speak...
Companies hiring PT?
Does anyone know of an organized and good company hiring very part time MTs or about 10 hours per week, mainly weekends?  I'd hate to test for them all if they ultimately want 20 or more hours.  TIA!
Get used to it. Companies are hiring more MTs to
Any companies hiring PT less than 20 hrs besides MQ? nm
Any companies other than MQ that use DQS that are currently hiring. nm
Any companies other than MQ that use DQS that are currently hiring.
Precyse Solutions uses a similar platform and it is VERY user friendly. They currently have openings. I work for them and absolutely love them. Used to work for MQ.
What's up with companies hiring ICs and...sm
then telling them they need to adhere to a strict schedule?  Their desire to classify a worker an IC is so they don't have to pay any taxes or give any benefits, equal to about $0.02 a line.  Nevertheless, they also do not want to pay the IC at a higher rate to compensate for this.  The schedule part is what gets me the most though.  My only reason for being an IC is the flexibility it affords me.   
And you are no longer a hiring manager and probably lost out on a LOT of good people
because of how you handled it. HMMMM??
Turns out she was just frazzled hiring people. She works there. Sorry about the bad press.
News report government hiring 1000 people - sm
To work on cybersecurity. I wonder if they will address the use of widespread databases like some (they shall remain nameless lest this post get booted) VR vendors use. I hope so. I think I'm going to ask for all the names and addresses who have access to my medical record from my local hospital and see what they tell me.
Any decent companies hiring?

Does anyone know of a good MT company that is hiring?  Here is what I am looking for...

Flexible schedule

Taxes taken out

Differential if shift work is required

Software that allows decent line counts



Companies that are hiring for VR editors? Anyone know of any?
Any companies hiring for op reports?
My company seems to have dried up. 
Companies hiring dial up
I swore I posted this but cannot find it. Are there any companies hiring for ICs that will let you use dial-up? I would love to work at my inlaws cottage this summer but they can't get high speed access. Thanks.

It seems to be the new trend - many companies hiring
inexperienced people or clerks (if you will) to manage MTs. It's definitely now all about money, folks. Never thought I'd see the day where folks would take approximately 10 bucks an hour, be paid salary, and work 60 hrs a week, but they are! You have to hand it to them though, this will definitely build up their resumes for the future. Can you imagine who will be managing the industry in say ten years? For once I AM GLAD I'm old. lol
Which companies use EditScript? and are they hiring? nm
Any companies that use DocQscribe hiring PT ICs?
The sound quality at DSG seems to get more awful each day.
Any companies hiring for M-F work
I have 10+ years of experience as an MT and need to have a Monday through Friday schedule because that is what works with my kids, school, and their summer sports.  Are there any companies hiring experienced MTs for M-F work? Thanks
Does anyone know of good companies hiring for QA... sm
.... with hourly pay?  Thanks.
Doesn't mean they are HIRING; most companies sm
continue to accept applications even when they have no positions open. That way they are ready for the future and have a list of approved applicants when accounts come on-line.
any companies still hiring statutory employees? nm
Anybody know of companies hiring that aren't advertising? nm
Any companies hiring IC that use the VoiceWave Player,
and pays 10 cpl minimum.   Thanks.
Companies that use Dictaphone EXT and are hiring?? Any suggestions??
I like working on this system and I need a job!! Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
Know of any good companies hiring PT Radiology? (nm)
Doesnt it seem like there arent many companies hiring right now. nm
Some companies are constantly hiring and training; therefore

the old faithful MT's are left with the yuk so that the new MT's can be training on the not-so-yuky dictators, then comes along another MT to train, and on and on the cycle goes.

The company I am with stated 35 percent ESL's, but that is totally impossible, unless I am getting the whole 65 percent ESL's. There just does not seem to be any consistency with regards to work flow in pools. That is what I have observed. I guess I should get my own doctors/accounts in order to make that happen, right?

Any companies hiring part-time?
I need flexibility.  Willing to do a certain number of lines every pay period.  I started with MedScribe of NJ and already they run out of work and seem to be dodging my emails about a secondary account.  Afraid I made a bad choice.....
Any companies hiring with BCBS as the insurance?
If there are, do they pay well? By well I mean 9-10 cpl.
Any companies hiring for 300 lines a day and very flexible with hours? SM

I am looking to work for a company who is looking for some overflow help, 300 lines a day.  I am willing to give and take a little in regards to the work schedule.  If some days there is not enough to get 300 lines that is fine and if some days there is an abundance of work and you may require more from me, that is fine also.

I would love to find a company who uses a transcription-friendly software like DocQScribe (not sure of spelling) or Inscribe.  I am also looking for a flexible schedule, where I can just hop on throughout the day and transcribe.

Does anybody know of such a company?  I would be more than grateful to hear of any.

Thanks so much!!!!

Anyone else feel that these companies that are hiring should hire more recruiters?
So perhaps we'd hear something back within a reasonable amount of time!   
Good companies hiring for clinic work

Know any good companies hiring for clinic work? I'd rather get lower pay for clinic and have a higher line count than stress out over acute care at this point.

anyone know of companies that use Dictaphone ExText that might be hiring IC status?

any info appreciated.


Any companies hiring out there for Psych/Behavioral Med Clinic/Acute?
  I'm looking specifically for a primary account in this specialty.  Any ideas?  Clinic or acute would be okay, and I'd prefer PT, but would consider FT if the hours were right... just thought I'd check in here and see if anyone has any ideas.  Thanks!
Why is it that people can come on here and bash companies but when someone tries to say that they sm

are happy, they are either management or causing flames.

There are a lot of good companies out there, but this is like anything else:  If you have a good experience, you are happy.  If you have a bad experience, or perceive something as a bad experience, you yell and scream and ram it down the throats of everyone around you? 

We are all entitled to our opinions, good and bad, but people that come to this board for real answers are never going to be able to find them as both the nay say'ers and the yay say'ers get out of hand.

I work for Keystrokes.  I have for a few years.  I am happy there and hate to see the bad posts, knowing that there are very few that feel that way.  There are over 200 of us that are happy and have been there for a little while.  It is disheartening to see that one of the biggest companies that really tries to do well by their employees has such bad press at times, and that the ones who do the bad-mouthing either:

1) Have not been there in a long time.

2)  Were not hired.

3)  Were let go.

Yes, they hire often, but they need to advertise, recruit and hire to staff new accounts or they would not be able to get and keep the account.  Yes, people leave companies and move to others.  This industry in general seems to see a lot of job movement, in house and with services.  Yes, they had a recent change in management of ONE PERSON ONLY, the one who did the hiring, but companies go through changes all the time, in and out of healthcare.  WHO CARES?  They tried to make it better by sending out an email to all resumes in that person's office.  I saw the email as someone from another company received it, knew I work for KS, and wanted to know if I am happy there.  I thought the email was good.  They had a lot of calls to make, and those calls do not last for 30 seconds.  I talked to the owner when I was hired and we talked for 45 minutes as I had a lot of questions.  Yes, they said that they would make the calls in a few days but obviously it took longer than they expected.  Again, WHO CARES?  If they were say they were going  to call you and did not, maybe they ran out of time or maybe they JUST WERE NOT THAT INTO YOU.  Just because you put in a resume, it does not mean that they are going to hire you.  Maybe a lot of applicants were excited and called them or kept emailing asking for a call, but there are only so many hours in a day.  There are a lot of maybe's and a lot of things that you have no control over, and a lot of things that they have no control over.

It could be that you are the best Transcriptionist in the world, and they lost out.

It could be that the positions were filled by the time that they got to you in the pile.  It happens.  So many people want 1st shift, Mon through Fri, no ESL, no equipment, no this, no that, specific this, specific that.  There is not an endless supply of every type of account, every shift. 

The big question here is:  Why do you care so much that felt it necessary to come to a public board and bash a company that you know nothing about?  How about we stick to bashing those with no work, that send the work to India, who do not pay their employees, who offer 3cpl, who have ugly QA, who cheat on line counts?  THOSE are the companies that DESERVE to be bashed. 


You might ask why I am taking the time to write this.  It's simple.  I feel that the hateful people bring out the worst in all of us, and that poison spreads.  Yes, I feel passionately about this, but it is only because I do not think it is fair to bash a company that you do not work for.  They should thank their Lucky Stars that they did NOT get to some of the calls for the truly spiteful people out there, because a few months down the line, they would be here screaming about something else.  Now he or she can move on to the next company that they want to try to bash.  You don't hurt the companies when you do this, as they are not here, but you do insult those of us that like working for Keystrokes or whatever company is the flavor-of-the-month to be bashed.

Maybe instead of bashing companies and/or people
you should learn to SPELL first. Maybe that's part of the reason why you had no work if that was actually the case.
For real people - The pay most of these companies
are offering now for EXPERIENCED MTs is not much more than I made starting out 10 years ago with no experience. I started out at 0.06 a line. What a ripoff. I'm seriously considering a new profession.
I'm not quite sure why people keep giving companies who don't pay bennies the nod. sm
I guess it's all relative.  A lot of MTs, because of health problems, cannot get benefits on their own.   There are enough good companies out there, who pay as much as futurenet, who DO pay benefits, thank God.  AND they have direct deposit as well, which is pretty important to some people.  Gosh, even the smallest services have direct deposit.  Not understandable in a company anymore that they don't provide it.  Glad you are happy, but there are better deals out there.
Any companies out there willing to train people for eScription that have never used it before but
People keep talking about mid size companies sm
but which are they? Keystrokes, TT? Are they mid size? That means better? I think it just depends on who you are, how much experience and what platform you end up getting and with accounts going here, there any everywhere, lots of luck.
