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.

Recent posts show them with late or nonpayment issues. Do a search. nm
It is as recent as a week ago, you need to search in the Search For box,
2006 posts said QA is VERY picky here. Pay was 6-9 cpl. Under
Is this RI in Minnesota? Some posts from 2006
Posts from April said everyone gets 8.5 cpl/newbie or experienced. Recent posts said
They last had an ad here in 6/2006, FT only, using Weblinc software. Past posts said
Posts from 2/2006 said they were running out of work. They use MTWorld software. nm
Any way you can search recent pages w/o having to go to each one
They were lowest cpl in my recent job search

Also, I saw an ad for them for $12.50/hour. It seems they are leading the charge to push down MT salaries.  

In addition, they do not pay based on experience.  My 25+ years in acute care teaching hospitals in EVERY specialty counted for nothing.

BTW, when I changed jobs, I spent exactly FIVE reports on full QA and then was turned loose, immediately meeting their daily requirements. So I think Spheris is a better fit for those with very little experience and needing heavy QA. They must pay MTs so little because they have big overhead with QA.

Search recent inquires from MTs there
Do a search and see pros and cons posted in the recent past.

In a recent job search, they were the lowest offer.

Have you done a recent search on MTstars? Please do...lots of info
Depending on your qualifications, you can do better...

Lots of recent info here, and definitely not all good. Search the boards. nm
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.
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.
Recent posts about them are VERY negative. Might want
see archives, recent posts not
exactly glowing.
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!

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
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?
Check thru the recent posts here that have them running out of work. nm
If you've read the recent posts about them, how could you even think of applying? 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
I found 5 posts by doing a search.
I know the subject comes up about once a week, at least.

Also, keep in mind that no one OWES you a response, and it isn't very polite to point out that people haven't done so. It would look so much better in the future if you just repost an inquiry, rather than pointing out that everyone on the board has failed you personally by not jumping up to respond.
you can search previous posts, sm
no complaints here, but some people have had problems, work is there, pay is on time, they pay downtime if work does run out, insurance is good BCBS
Mostly negative posts on a search. nm
Many negative posts about them if you search. nm
No payer! RUN! You can do a search for other posts
You may want to search for past posts (sm)
This has been discussed frequently in the past.  I do not personally do this type of transcription, but I have seen posts generally anywhere from 3.5 to 4.5 CPL.  I am assuming that 5 cpl is a little above average.  There are also others, I'm sure, who are making more.  But definitely search for past posts, I think you will find more info there.
you can google search them and get old posts but
no sure how old those might be.

about Chronicle.  My own experience was:  I HATED the platform (Apex).  It's an antiquated piece of junk that is slower than molasses in January and I couldn't make any money.  QA can be moody and the rules on the account change often - hard to keep up with all the formatting junk.  The owner is nice.  The office staff is nice.  Tech support is so-so as far as helpfulness.  I did not like that I had to stop all Java updates and go back to an older version of Java, which really slowed my system down.  Pay was on time and direct deposit.  The account was okay, it was clinic and good cents per line, but there were a lot of cherrypickers who would scoop out the good reports and leave the junk for other people.  I think Chronicle may have another platform besides Apex, but I am not familiar with it - you can always ask them.
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...
Anyone have recent info on Cymed in Virginia? Oldest posts are from 09/2005- TIA

Several posts in the last month or so if you do a search. Some like 'em, some don't. nm
