Yeah, it seems odd that he doesn't mention pay.

I think that many job seekers

view the insurance provided and premium rate to be quite, quite high on the list of important information needed, so I do not think this is a bash post.  It seems the uncertainty about insurance with this particular entity has been questioned several times over the last month or so, therefore it is a valid topic for discussion.  Thanks for management coming on and providing specific information.



There is a posting on the Job seekers...

board for Hanover PA that mentions a Pennsylvania board.  Does anyone know where I would find this?  Thanks!

Try the Job Seekers board. Many of them sm
indicate that they hire US MTs only.
Try Diskriter, add on Job Seekers
I work as a hospital employee through Diskriter and the benefits are very affordable.  They are advertising for a Florida hospital.  I don't work for this particular hospital, but in general I am sure the benefits are better and more affordable than any national company.  I think there are only certains states that they can hire employees from, so you will have to check on that.  I have love my job with DR as a hospital employee. I'm making more than I have ever made as an MT in 15 years.   You can find some more info in a thread towards the bottom of the page.  Don't let the negative posts discourage you.  The hiring process is a little more involved, but it is for a hospital employee position, which makes a big difference.     
It looks like on the Job Seekers' board that most
I wonder how many of those clicks results in resumes. Seems like all the companies would be getting inundated with applicants right now.
If you look at the Job Seekers board you will see
your questions.  Also Transcription Relief Services is another company that is always looking. 
See the Job Seekers board, please. (SM)
The job advertisements are very descriptive. You should be able to discern easily who has insurance and who doesn't.

The Company board is for asking about specific companies.

Do you mean the Job Seekers board?
I count 23 job postings in the last week, so I would say it's far from dried up.
Job Seekers/Job Bank
I never really noticed how many were coming on a daily basis before. They obviously haven't flocked to the other board. I think they have 7 postings for the whole month. Maybe companies just aren't hiring as much right now. I didn't notice the Job Bank before you said that. I never even think to look there. Maybe companies aren't thinking to post there, either.

Regretfully, we have had an incident where an unscrupulous offshore individual has placed an advertisement for employment, pretending to be an actual US-based company. Apparently, some have applied and even begun to work by this ad with an abrupt cancellation.

The owner of the actual company (US-based) has contacted us and is understandably upset.

We have removed the advertisement and placed a ban on this individual. Please, if you have responded to or are corresponding with anyone related to the ad, we advise you to stop.

The ad was posted on 10/03/08 by Timothy Olyphant and the subject was Seeking Contractors. This what the ad stated:

We are currently seeking contractors for Transcription Project. Audio is downloaded via FTP. Preferably, these contractors would work the morning shift clearing jobs as they come through the server. We are looking for contractors committed to do 5000 lines/day, Tuesday through Saturday. This contractor positions are available immediately. Interested contractors can send in the resumes/contractor profile to integritymedicaltranscription@yahoo.com. Please quote your rate per line.

Please note that this ad is a scam and the email address is not the actual address of the real US-based company.

We encourage you to contact the Administrator (admin@mtstars.com) or one of our Moderators (cher@mtstars.com, javabean@mtstars.com) with any complaints or suspicions you have about advertisements on MTStars' Job Seeker's Board.

Lots of IC part time positions out there.

Seems to be getting quite a few lookers. Just wondering who this is

or does it print correctly on the recruiter's side? 
Check the Job Seekers board. nm
There are plenty of jobs on the job seekers board
Go to Job Seekers board, Add a resume, and follow
I have no idea. It is posted on the job seekers board.


You need to read the ad on Job Seekers board for QA person. huh? nm
Job Bank icon on Job Seekers board
Did Shannon have a job to post on the job seekers' board
or did she just want MTs to apply with no details given???  Any info on this one? 
Keystrokes has an ad for a pathology transcriber on the job seekers board. sm
Is Pathology easy to do? I have 8 years in acute care but have never done pathology or radiology and might be interested in a change.
What does "DOE" mean on the job seekers board for the rate to be paid?

None of the ones on the Job Seekers board send work outside the country. They
would not be allowed to advertise if they did.
Anyone have any info on MT Professional listed on Seekers board? nm
I'm surprised the Moderator permitted this on Job Seekers Board..nm

07/28/09 for new MTs, FT & PT, all shifts.  Are they saying the accounts are UNDERSTAFFED?

Naturally, the new hirees will be gooing and gushing all over this board again about how GREAT their accounts are and how  EASY their dictators are.


Debate is one thing, and posting is one thing,
but this is getting absurd. I think it must be the same person, otherwise multiples who cannot stay on topic?? Why can't you STICK with the subject? The subject of my post was NOT what your cent per line rate was or is - I could care less- and not how much money you made last year, this year, or in your life, but how silly the comment was that your cents per line rate means NOTHING, that its up to you - some fluff like that. That is just so silly. Again, working for the same company, same account, is one going to make more money being paid more per line? OF course! This is so frustrating and really makes me so tired of reading this garbage let alone posting. Its like a nightmare. And also makes me completely believe that the original company must pay peanuts.
good thing it is a temporary thing sm
because people with your attitude don't stay in anything very long anyway. Nobody has to listen to that crap to keep their job.

You don't know me either. you can say old fart all you want (when did 53 get to be old fart....too funny) but at least I am a valuable employee who can get a decent job!
Posted on wrong board. Plz see Seekers board.
Well for one thing, it would not be a professional thing
to do for any MTSO to have a board to do this as part of being an MTSO involves the ability to identify and hold on to confidential information. Even if a person is a job hopper (which in this business rather than go against you can make you a stronger better MT if you can do just about anything thrown at you), if a person is looking for a job, a company needs to have the MT's permission to contact their current employer. Where one has worked or has not worked is something that is very unprofessional being discussed on a board by MTSOs.

Being a business owner of any kind comes with it possessing what it takes to maintain ethical practices.

MDI-FL is not the same as it use to be. They say one thing sm
and do another. MDI-FL has their pets and it is so evident. 
One more thing

Do you know anything about Medical Transcription Services out of Texas. They hire graduates of Andrews and other schools.  Thank you.



Oh-one more thing...

You never said how many lines you type an hour-- over 350 to 400 typing and 600 editing??

DIDN'T THINK SO--you don't know what you are talking about in regards to the problems a lot of us are having because it is probably better for you.  Even the Transcend CEO said it would be better for the SLOWER MTs.  I guess you are one of those I take it.  If you EVER get your line count up and then have it snatched away, then maybe you will understand what we are talking about, but right now you are clueless sweetie!!!....LOL

That's the thing and
I've been watching this board for a few months now and whenever anyone has a good position as the the poster above states, they never post their real name or where they work. Hmmmm.
OSI did the same thing to me ....
It took them 2 months after I got an acceptance letter. Nobody knew what anyone else was doing and they would never call me back or answer my E-mails or anything, so I went elsewhere and boy am I glad I did
Another thing...

I find it particularly pathetic that someone at Transcend is so willing to put my name out there, yet doesnt post their name.  I am sure that you are one to get on here and complain and whine about how you hate Transcend and are so unhappy and trash the place while hiding in secrecy.  Why not post your complaints on the forum?  To afraid?  It really burns me that someone could drag me into this thread while being a coward and not post their own name. 

She had one thing that the other
management knew nothing about....RESPECT for the MTs!

And the sad thing about this...sm
they have some great accounts, great dictators...but they are pitiful to work for. Happened to me 3 times. When I told them their check was no good...her response was....funds will be available in 3 days. yeah right!!! I was stupid to stay on that long to receive 3 BAD checks.

Know what will happen, one day some of those MTs will get pissed off and they MAY just lose some of those good accounts they have...and that 8% allowance for spaces..yeah right, who does Deb Garrison think she is fooling? Does she really think all MTs can't "figure" that this is so wrong!!!!

She and her husband are a piece of WORK...
Here is the thing. (sm)
Those who fail a test for employment at other nationals can be hired by OSi. So, how does that make you feel? OSi does not require a decent score to be hired....they are desperate!!!

I would not feel too superior working for OSi...I would be embarrassed!
They are doing the same thing at MDI-FL.
Overhire and no work for current employees.  
Only thing I know is... sm
I've seen the recruiters name listed for at least 4 companies in the last couple years and have been misled to two companies she recruited for, I would be wary of any promises she makes.  Just my observation of the job boards, won't work anywhere she recruits for.
And another thing (sm)

We all will make this profession or what used to be a profession what it is today.

We are selling a service.  If I hired an attorney, I would not ask him for a psychological test or a credit report.  I wouldn't ask a contractor that was doing some work in the backyard for a credit report.

When companies ask me for too much for too little, I blow them off.  They are already taking a lot of your pay.  For them to want you to be an IC, you pay for your own equipment and internet service, you give them an hourly schedule when you are supposed to be an IC, they want 3 references, etc., and now they want a psycological test?  Ask a contract attorney or contractor for that, they'd probably hang up the phone in your ear.

Yes, I want to hire you as my attorney, but I want to see a credit report, want to know exactly what hours you will be working and you will need to take a psychological test.  All this and I will pay you $10.00 an hour.

I think it is nonsense and they are not treating us like professionals and with the respect that we deserve.  And with that, good luck ladies and gents! 

Same Thing For Me

The same thing happened to me.  Got a call yesterday stating that I started the testing, but never finished and they would like me to work with them.  The reason I didn't finish it is that I got a pop-up screen that said I didn't have enough experience, but the caller yesterday said they stress the 2-year experience heavily and I don't have 2 years yet.

even my mgr says there is really no such thing
as straight 'verbatim'. We have to use a little common sense, and esp with obvious errors of dictation, we put what is right, ie, the he/she thing.

I work a verbatim as my primary account, and at times would LOVE to put it character-per-character verbatim, but it'd never fly and at least my mgmt understands that (at MQ)...
Here's the thing.
I came to this board in a sincere search for info about companies. When I saw all the OSi bashing and name-calling and the tendency to berate anybody that might disagree, my immediate impression was that this was just a disgruntled employee taking his/her bad feelings out on an ex-employer. If anything, it made OSI look more appealing to me. I was relieved when the adm. finally took measures to get some proof because when facts are presented in an irrational, angry way, they're really questionable. Presentation is everything. If you want to express your opinion, why not do it in such a way that you're believable and don't come across as an unreliable source. What's so difficult about that? People want your honest opinions, but aren't looking to be insulted or read your personal vendettas. And now that I'm comfortably with a co. again, I won't be coming back to this board. It's been a very negative experience for the most part.
