You are soooo right!. sm

Every time I have called I have gotten a total attitude from them as if I am ruining their day by calling.  It's their darn job to help me so get over it!!! I DREAD calling them.

Well, I am soooo happy to see that I am not the
thought, huh????????  I'm the one who responded about getting an 86 on it.  I really felt badly about the whole thing, especially since it was the VERY FIRST MT test I took straight out of school.  But now I see others think it's ridiculous as well.  You should have seen their snotty email to me.  We require a minimum of 3 years current hospital MT experience for consideration of an at-home position. Thank you for your interest.  That's it, nothing else.  Why in the heck didn't they just say that to begin with?  I never would have bothered taking the darn thing!  Plus, there are those out there with 20 years of experience who can't pass that rotten test.  Then, too, there are companies who don't even respond at all.  So I guess I should consider myself lucky that Mr. Snot responded at all.
Well if it was soooo horrible...
Why didn't they say that??  I only received three or four corrections on it and this was on an ESL speaking doctor, so for a first-time run at it I don't see that as horrible.  I type for a large 300-bed acute care hospital and also do IC work for a brain and spine trauma center and my QA is 98%++.  As far as this being a test, this was an actual report that was pulled off the system to type.  This was not something dictated from a year ago, it was just dictated.  When I applied to them there was no testing, no phone interviews or anything.  Basically, I received an email stating they could use me on this account and then I was set up.  From where I come from you train your people so that there is no confusion on how a typed report should look since essentially they are a legal document and everything needs to be in order.  You can say all you want, but I think this company lacks PR and to me that is as important as how much a company will pay.  I'll just keep my own accounts and be happy.  I don't have any complaints from them, only happy referrals to other offices.
I am soooo the opposite
If I were making this posting, I would be asking if anybody knew who made a 'clicky' keyboard, because to my ear, they're all too quiet. I need to be able to 'hear' what my fingers are doing, which may make sense to some of the people on here. I don't know if it's some kind of subconscious thing or what, like instantaneous letter counting or something, but I can almost 'hear' a typo and God only knows what I would be typing if I didn't get that immediate feedback. I just turn up my volume and, if it's really tough, type really gently through the bad section (and hopefully it's just a sentence or so).

But in answer to your question, it seems to me that a lot of the black Microsoft keyboards are pretty darn quiet, both the straight and ergonomic ones.
well said and soooo true NM
soooo true....

As if our pay isn't low enough.  Cut me a break!  If we don't smarten up and start saying no to these low-paying jobs, it will never end; it will just keep getting worse and worse. 

Soooo many people have left!
I know that at least 20 or so people quit around the same time I did! Even though it is super annoying, it is sometimes funny to read their e-mails when they are panicking because they don't have enough people.
I soooo feel your pain!
and it makes me angry too. I have done this since 1980 and never had a raise. As a matter of fact, I used to make more!! Everybody wants to do medical transcription and I get asked about it all the time. I tell them NOOOOOO, you do NOT want to do this. The ads out there make it sound like you can make so much money, and while as a good Transcriptionist you CAN make better than average money, it never goes past that point. Working at home is not all it is cracked up to be. I only did it because I wanted to be home with my kids. Now I am sorry to be stuck in this rut.
She is soooo anal....find something better..nm
Linda, you are soooo right, when I was younger and dumber....sm
I was sooo afraid of using shortcuts, I watched the screen like a hawk and typed everything verbatim and screwed myself out of so much money!  I wondered what the secret was to all those MTs who would chat up a storm, and till make a higher line count than me, and they had less experience....They used their shortcuts/expanders for everything, and once I learned this and worked on mine, my line count zoomed and I consistently made high incentive pay and bonus....don't underestimate this tool.  Thanks for bringing this up, Linda! 
Soooo nice. This is the place I will retire from. nm

Soooo...if those WITH lots of experience are being offered
These smileys crack me up! They are soooo funny! nm
soooo, you are posting anonymous posts to your own
posts now??? How childish. Besides that, I did not see any copyright mark on the eye rolling thing, and I was not responding to YOU, but to someone else. I thought you were *bored* and had moved on. Apparently not because you always have to have the last word about anything. I guess that makes you feel that your are always right, as well as a people abuser. LOL.
If you are serious about the belittle part, report it. My mentor was soooo nice. (sm)
Report feedback very prompt and helpful, not demeaning in any way. Did the required number of reports to be monitored, got above the 98% and then received congratulation E-mails for doing so from my mentor and STM.

Good manners and friendly attitude are a BIG part of the company. If this person was truly rude or unhelpful, please let HR and/or your assigned STM know.

Love, love, love TransTech! Not overhiring, just growing like crazy!
Ditto that! Psych is soooo boring. Feel bad for people and their many problems, but not
I too love path & can't find it at home & would love to cross-train into rad in the meantime I do
Love this company, love my boss, very informative QA.nm.
Does anyone think 41 is too old to go to nursing school. I love MT but I just would love to be a
nurse.  I have such a interist in helping others and the medical world.
Love, love, love DeVenture
Super nice, flexible and just all around nice to work for.
Love, love, love Axolotl
I totally love Axolotl.  Just as A-team said, fantastic benefits.  Yes, strict schedule, but never ever had a problem getting off when I needed to.  I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. 
I would love to know too, I love EXText
Love Bayscribe and love the pay
At 11 cpl I love working for MDI Maryland. Bayscribe is a breeze. The lines build up so quickly. Everything is right there on the page. Sometimes, you have to fill in patient data, but who cares.... you do get paid for it. No holiday or vacation pay as it is an IC position. It beats 8 and 9 cpl any day. IMO
Love, love Archivus
Mind my asking what your line rate is? Do you have to work a schedule? Is their platform good? Anything else?
love/hate MT, mostly love it :)
i've long been dismayed with the direction in which this profession has gone, and i agree with the person who posted that women have accepted substandard wages and/or unfair IC or employment situations. It's very sad to see how, when outsourcing became the norm, women did not adequately negotiate to, you know, pay their bills!!! It seems this has resulted in lots of undercutting and lower line rates for everyone. I see some companies slowly improving and not requiring crazy line counts and hours in exchange for paying into health insurance. i entered this profession as a single female. i married an engineer and was living mighty comfy and cushy and happily doing 4 hours at 11 cpl in the late 90s. didn't have to worry about not having bennies at all. now as a single mom with a young child, i truly struggle. but i do love my work and hold out for my specialty to keep the line count up. still, i see the glaring problems and it's just a shame. if there were an MT union, i'd join in a heartbeat. no time/energy to start one and be some kind of norma rae, though!

Ah, yes, a love/hate thing indeed!

Best to all of you wonderful mts, male and female :)
Love it there

Okay, I have read all the posts and have been keeping up with all of this.  I wasn't going to say anything, but some of the naysayers are getting a little nasty.  I think that Transcend is a very good company.  All of their pay rates and incentives, bonuses and benefits are public knowledge on the forum.  It would make it very hard for preferrential treatment to go.  However, I suppose it could happen.  What I don't get is if it is happening to someone, why wouldn't they do something about it instead of putting up with it and complaining to the world about it while they do it? 

Also, there are a ton of posts on here about Transcend from this thread that are not nice about the company and I haven't seen MT Stars pull one single post.  I guess they aren't as biased as some would claim!

I've been with them for almost 6 months, and they are the best! They truly treat their MTs with respect. I would highly recommend them!
love JLG
I have been an MT a long time and JLG so far has been the best company to work for. Work flow is constant, management is great, and so far, I have not run out of work. If I have my way, I will never go outside the house to work again. I cannot imaging having to drive into town everyday with the price of gas right now!!!!
I love my job. Best job I have had. People nice to work for, flexible schedule, no nit-picky QA stuff, like "comma in the wrong place". And great pay. RAH RAH RAH...I didn't even have to take any test. Sent them my resume, the called and hired me.
I love it!
"little control freaks with no experience other than raising a few kids"  ROFL!  Yeah, you have that description down pat. Honestly, with some of the ranting emails we get from team leaders or account supervisors, I'd hate to hear them dealing with their children when they think nobody else is around.  OK, so one person on the team did something wrong, so let's scream at everyone!
I love OSi..but I wonder about this, too
MDI-FL...what is it that you love?
I just got hired by this company and am looking forward to getting started.  It sounds like a great company to call home and that's just what I'm hoping to do.  I really need a fresh start after a bad experience with a few nationals.  They seem to have a lot to offer.  I would love some input from current employees on what to expect.  Is the work volume pretty stable?  Platform user-friendly? Easy to make line counts?  Are most of the dictators pretty good?  Do you they pay every 2 weeks or only on certain dates of the month?  Is pay always on time?  Have the changes over the years been for the better?  Would you say this company is here to stay?  Sorry for all the questions; I'm just hoping this is the last MT I'll work for.  Any info you can provide on the boards or off the boards would be much appreciated!   
You will love it!
I love....
You are a sick individual. I hardly ever come on these boards anymore because the level of discourse has sunk so low. There is someone else on this board who uses a name similar to mine and we have been mistaken for each other in the past. But, even if you mean to direct your comments to me, it is of no consequence to me because you are obviously ignorant. I have every right to my opinion and to express it. If low IQ people like you misinterpret what I have written, that's the price one pays for expressing oneself.
All I know is that I love the changes!
They are great! I can't wait! Don't care about much else. All of my accounts are on DocQscribe.
Would love to know if

feedback please.

Love OSI


Love it here at TH. And no way would they ever do that.
I've had emergencies, and as long as I communicate -- everything is FINE. The staff is nice. The work is decent (ESLs though and some mushy americans but who DOESN'T have those)... You can't beat their benefits and I've never EVER had a late paycheck. You can do worse, trust me.
Same here, love OPs.
I second that! Love it there! nm

No but would love to know how (NM)
Love UST!!!!
I too also love UST.  They are very good to work for.  Their platform is their own but it is out of Word and extremely easy and you spend most of your time typing and not entering demos, etc.  I highly recommend them!!!!!
Would Love to Help Out
Hi.  I'm interested in helping out with your account.  I work outside the home during the week and do MT on the side, so that would work great.  Please post a reply/followup if interested.  Thank you.
i love it
I love it!

I have worked for a few different MTSOs.  Spheris, by far, is the most professional.  They will send you all equipment...down to the mouse pad. Tech support is always available and always helpful.  Pay is always on time.  Training lasts a week and is very very thorough.  After training, you are on guaranted pay for several weeks while you familiarize yourself with your account.  You are assigned two accounts up front.  If you have more than 2 hours of downtime, you can submit a request for compensation.

There are other MTSOs who pay more, but I earn a more than adequate salary and am very very happy with them.  I have a great supervisor.  I hope to retire from Spheris. 

I love it there...
I have never encountered the problems that you describe. I love my TL and all the people, very friendly all the time
I love it.
I get treated better and make better money.  I'm not just some ID number. 
I LOVE it! (sm)
After 9 years working for nationals, I'm now working for several services where I don't have to mess with stupid proprietary platforms that interfere with my productivity methods. I take files from the FTP site and upload them within the turn-around time. My small service owners know me, and I know them; they're not just some name on an email. Yes, it does take more planning: I can't just take off when I feel like it because the clients are depending on me, but you know what? If feels much better to be needed. Go for it!
Love to help!
I have been with the company I am currently with for just over 2 years now. About six months ago I began working as a part-time IC for another company as well just to pick up some extra cash. I'm always floating around here somwhere, so never hesitate to ask for help if you need it!

Good luck to you!
