Definitely not TransTech -- gets worse and worse with no work each and every day and who cares???

NOBODY, except the MT's who are making less and less money and losing whatever comfortable lifestyle they had previously had the pleasure to live.  Unless you have more than 1 member in the household to bring in the money, or you have received an inheritance from family member, there is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY TO MAKE A LIVING AT Transtech anymore.  They absolutely DON'T CARE either.  TransTech mgmt will not talk about it; only promises of new accounts coming on . . . ha !  Possibly an overflow account to replace the LOST account. 

I so wish mgmt's paychecks would be affected by this NO WORK situation that has been going on for more than a year now and they would get out of that Houston high-dollar office and FIND US MT's some WORK !

Who cares?
I can't even believe that all of you are wasting your time talking about how to spell the stupid word anyway. Don't you have something better to do with your time than argue about how to spell a word that really ISN'T a word? GET A LIFE!!!
Enough already. Do you have enough work now? I am flooded with work for over 3 weeks now (not complaining, love it).
Who really cares..? I don't!!!. nm
who cares

17 yrs exp. and nobody cares
I'm so sick of seeing ads requiring mega years of experience in multiple specialties, working knowledge of various platforms and every conceivable toy already installed on your computer only to find out the pay is entry-level at best.
Here we go again who cares? nm
Look out for #1, who cares about anyone else.
Sigh. Thank goodness our forefathers weren't as selfish as we've become.
who cares if they are in india

i heard good things about them

But who really cares? Anyone that has been in this business
knows it takes awhile to get back to people!!!!! If every company came on this board to read their stats, it would be full of stats. Do we really want to see them? If we do, I urge Transolutions, Transcend, Medware, every company that posts to come to this board and say all this. Do we really want to know. The board would be full of statistics. Do we care? No!
Like who the heck cares if she is one or not?
CMT according to AAMT, who cares?
I attended the best MT school in my area in 1971. It was held in a very large medical center with a R.N. supervisor as the instructor for our medical subjects and an English/Business teacher who taught medical office procedures,health, etc. We saw autopsies, learned to give injections and take BPs. We did rounds with doctors during our internship. We worked in the field in this hospital in at least 9 different areas, doing medical transcription, and were graded by the department supervisor at the end of each term. This on-hands medical training gave us the absolute best when it came to understanding what what we were transcribing. At the end of the course, we were given CMT pins and diplomas and I have considered myself a CMT ever since, which is a heck of a lot longer than the AAMT has been in existence! I do not care about any list they have compiled nor do I care about a $300 test they give so you can become certified. That means nothing to me. I have my excellent training and over 35 years of experience, as well as my diploma stating I am a certified medical transcriptionist, and that is what I am.
really who cares if you have nothing to hide?
now if they are delving into your personal life then thats another story, thats just plain nosey. But a criminal background check is not a bad idea.
You know what everyone? Who cares if you're a CMT or not...
If you're good, you're good. If you're not, then oh well. I make $21 (yes, $21) per hour PLUS incentive, and I'm not a CMT. So there. Get over yourselves. My goodness.
So what noone cares about my opinion? I am still
Managment cares
The upper management, and I mean the administration, lets you know they really care and they admit that it is the MTs that are the backbone of the company. They let you know you are appreicated.
who cares if they're mgt ?
Who flippin' cares?!?!

For the people who don't like what she does, guess what?  You don't have to work for her.  If you're tired of seeing her job ads, guess what?  Use your scroll bar and move past it.  But please, stop creating thread after thread about her company.  It's getting really old... and it's so pointless.


who cares? Put your energy into sm
something else. If you have ever had a business you would know that the half that you think they are keeping is NOT their profit! They have to pay self-employment taxes just like you do on the money coming in, overhead, etc. Dont waste so much time worrying about it. You are gonna get an ulcer! GEEZE!
Well, good for you. Who cares if
fellow MTs can afford to feed their families with the lastest pay cuts, as long as YOU are doing fine.
If you think MTSO looks out for/cares for anyone
Who cares your opinion? Get over
who cares if its not a lot of money! You worked and

You should be paid. 

I let this go with a local medical transcription company.. only thing is I worked there (at the company) 5 days 6 hours a day and never got paid. I figured I gained experience and they weren't worth fighting.  I was just happy to be away from the place and the people who worked there.  I H-A-T-E-D that place.  In all honesty though, if they send me ANYTHING in the mail as far as taxes are concerned after not paying me.. something will be done.

clicks, cliques..who cares..nm
Who cares? Save the trees!!
If it does not affect your paycheck, who cares.....sm
If you can do as many lines or as much work as you want daily, who cares if you are on QA for 5 years. How they run that part of their business should not matter to you, unless you are limited as to how much work you get; thus affecting your paycheck.

I would not give a hoot if they kept me on QA for years, as long as I make my daily line requirement I need to survive.

Just my 2 pennies worth!! :-)

Who cares about punctuation and grammar?
With the doctors using EMR and VR without editing, these things are a thing of the past.  Medical records are a mess and nobody cares.
I put my email at the top up there and no one cares enough to write. They just want to complain
and tell untruths about this company. Some are a good fit, others not, but the things that I am reading are definitely not true. I would not worry about constant complainers. These people would not fit in anywhere and I am not upper management either nor am I lower management.
If anybody cares, here is my experience looking for a job for the past 3 weeks

One company writes and says they are hiring and will have a coordinator contact me to schedule testing.  I schedule the test.  She then writes that she will be out of the office and to reschedule with her when she gets back.  When she got back, I wrote her and never heard from her again about rescheduling.  That was a company that begins with the letter F + net.  Not impressed.

Now transcending that scenario, next company that begins with the letter T...I tested and was offered a position by recruiter only to then be told they did not have the speciality I was looking for after being assured they did before testing.  We both agreed to put everything on hold.  Later, she contacts me and points me to a job ad for another company offering the work type I was looking for (?) which was nice but odd but then goes on to say she is leaving herself at the end of the month.  Recruiters at companies helping you find better jobs at other companies?I'm not real impressed.

Now...the company that recruiter referred me to begins with an Arch and hardly any posts on them anywhere to be found.  They tested me and offered me a position to start ASAP on a new account...ASAP drags out 2 weeks and then am told contract negotiations fell through so no account.  I can do another account on a different platform if I want - hmmmm not what I was looking for.  Recap = offered a position on an account they didn't have.  Not impressed.

In the meantime, investigate going back to a company I used to work for that is unmentionable here - begins with a big M.  I used to work for them so I thought go back to my old account.  Three weeks, many e-mails and phone calls later I am hooked up with a recruiting firm they hired and they send me paperwork and schedule me for training.  I complete training last week and have heard nothing from production super as promised but I have received 3 phone calls today from recruiting firm asking me if I need to be scheduled for training (and 2 of those people have never heard of the third person who called me so I am left wondering who I gave my SS# to).  Tried corporate office - no luck - no way to contact anybody.  Recruiter who had me return my paperwork to her does not know if it was received because she doesn't handle that.  Hmmmm....TRULY not impressed.

Another inquiry with yet another company yielded a reply e-mail that stated there was a testing file attached.  Hmmm....no file attached.  Answered that e-mail and have heard nothing since.

What in the world is going on?  Are there truly any good companies left? They keep running ads and complaining about a lack of good MTs when the fault lies possibly, quite possibly, in their complete lack of professionalism that immediately sends up a red flag to prospective employees.  When they get their acts together maybe they will have MTs.

Sorry but I needed to rant!!!!!!!!!!!! 

She did not say she cares what happens to Transcend, just making her point.
re: She did not say she cares what happens to Transcend, just making her point.
And her point is?
And who cares if the owners are enjoying the profits???
It's their business anyway! Are you saying if you owned your own business you wouldn't enjoy the profits WHO WOULDN'T. Please. Keystrokes is a super company and the CEO, managers, co-workers, everyone is awesome!
I agree...who cares how she spends her money? (sm)

She personally worked with me over the last couple months to get me a solid backup account.  I don't know how many people who own companies who would take the time to e-mail one of her MTs several times back and forth to try to find a backup account for them.  Normally that is done by someone in the office.  But she really worked with me one on one.  I can't tell you how much I appreciate that and how it went a long, long way to convince me that I should definitely stay at Keystrokes.  It's communication and dedication like that that sets Keystrokes apart and makes them a cut above many other companies.

I strongly disagree; Transcend cares a lot for its employees
If you do not want to play the game, just ignore the e-mails. Or, you may find another company is better for you. No sense being miserable.
And if the owners are gamblers, who cares? I'm glad you entertain yourself.

As a whole.. nice people to work for, decent benefits but the get off/on the system, work/no work,
is maddening. I couldnt pay my bills or even work the schedule I was assigned. They would ask us not to work until work built up in the evenings and I specifically wanted to work days as I have kids etc. It just didnt work out for me but to each his own. It just seems there has to be a better balance in this business that what is happening.
I did speak with my manager. Work was promised. No work there when I needed to work.
I see the reports everyday too, but when I get work it is of bad quality, then there is no work unless I work diffrent shifts. Thank you.
My liaison always says to work on secondary when primary is low on work/no work. n/m
That's going to be nuts...I do ASR work too, plus work split shifts. We'll NEED a spread shee
Work is easy, very nice owner, pays weekly, work in Word.

A majority of at-home MT is overflow work with in-house getting the bulk of the work. If they clean
Pay is always on time, direct deposit, very nice management to work with, and DQS platform, work
load normally busy, but low now because of the summer slow down on my accounts.  Sound an issue on some accounts, but not others.  Overall, wonderful company.
That is a BIG problem at TransTech is leads assigning work, rather than letting the work flow
This TT MT just admitted to that fact.  It has been very obvious, as so easy to tell how work comes into our que and then gets pulled out as fast as it came in and replaced with YUKKY dictators.   VERY frustrating to us other TT MT's who take the JUNK that is NOT assigned to other MT's, such as this poster. 
Ever thought of a home health care aide? Usually paid training and start work right away. Can work
Absolutely not! I work for the best MTSO. I am have been so blessed to work for the small company I

I will share this about the MTSO I work for.  I called her late last Wednesday night after Church and told her I was compelled to help out with Hurricaine Katrina in some way and an opportunity arose for a small group from my Church to go to Louisianna this coming week.  Would she be able to cover my work.  She told me no problem without any hesitation and even donated money for the trip. 

And I am sure there are plenty of good companies out there to work for.  To compare us to migrant workers is just not right.

It does work, you do not need to "make" it work.. it works in all word based programs.
I did some overflow work for Landmark.. they are wonderful to work for.. very nice people.. pay was
They have to be flexibility because of the erratic work flow. No sense in a schedule if no work..
I was told Escription would not work with Vista. Turned out it wouldn't work with my sm
Office Basic Edition 2003 either, but no one could figure out why, it was supposed to.

There is actually a section on the Dell website that offers Windows XP. I haven't checked it out as I'm not in the market, so I don't know if it costs extra. I have a Dell and it's been fine for me. I hate the ESL tech department, but it seems like most of them have that now.
