In Reply to: Precyse - Frustrated
I worked for them very recently for only about 4 months. I left in November. The people were nice. My supervisor was a little hard to communicate with, not always available. QA was helpful. I liked the platform. However, the lines just didn't seem to add up to much. Others have said they verified their line counts and they were right on, so I don't believe there was any funny business, but something about the platform, though very user-friendly, didn't allow me to make as much as I had always made in the past. I left because I hated second shift and Precyse was my second job. I could have asked to switch to first shift, but my account was often out of work first thing in the morning and I would have been flexing my time regularly, which I don't like to do.
The pay rate is dependent upon your first 2 weeks of QA evaluation. If you receive 100%, you get the top pay scale of 0.0863 cpl. They add 0.05 cpl that goes toward paid time off and if you reach over 12,000 per pay period (every 2 weeks) you get a $50 bonus.
All of the above is as of November. Probably no changes since then, but I could be wrong. Good luck.

Am considering Precyse and would appreciate any feedback from gals/guys who currently work for this company. The good, the bad, and anything in between. Thanks.
GO for it! I've owned my own company and worked for others. This is the classiest, best run, best paid, best benefits place I've ever found.
Is achieving a decent line count at Precyse easy to do?
I have tested with them twice, they were slow responding. Usually when I test I get an immediate response and job offer, they are a little slow in getting back. Would like to hear from Precyse MTs - line counts reasonably achievable?
Been with Precyse 3+ years. Their recruiting needs some big time attention. They are rather selective about who they hire and quality is an issue. In my experience, I have had no problem achieving my lines, including the bonus every pay period for lines over 12,000. Of course I have been doing this for over 20 years!
I am not a newbie either. I am switching companies trying to find a fit. Precyse cheats people with 20 years or plus experience on line counts. You are told, you will get feedback from every report, Not so, if you are very capable. I have done a lot, a lot of lines. Worked all day the day before I quit with all my macros, stayed focused and had 600 lines. That has never happened to me before, even with learning curve. I do 12-500 a day, until I met them. I finally figured out, they don't pay for headers, so why should I do them? I don't think they pay for footers either. I am running back to my old job as soon as I can, at least they don't steel lines.
I've worked for both these companies. The platform is Webcorrect (DocQScribe). I happen to love that platform and I managed 1200 to 1400 lines in 6-7 hours - yes, relatively easy to get. I did all consultations and ERs (didn't like being stuck in these work types and ended up, after about 4 months, not getting any ERs). If you didn't like the old Edix management, you probably won't like Precyse. For the most part, though, other than a couple of snippy QA and supervisors, they're not bad.
As far as MDI goes, I did voice recognition for them for a few weeks. The platform I worked on was Escription - easy. The problem is, VR doesn't pay well (about half) and it is very possible to spend lots of time on these reports. Spent about 70% of the time on VR and the rest typing. These folks seemed unorganized and no one was available. If you're a self-starter, you'll do fine.
In my opinion, Precyse is the better, more structured company with much better benefits. The pay is always on time, every other week. If you don't like DocQScribe (Webcorrect), though, don't go there.
Good luck to you. Wish you the best.
Hope this helps. Email me for any further questions about where I work now.
And I think Precyse too?
Precyse does too
Do they pay well? Annual raises? Do they pay on time? Do they put you on too many accounts? Is platform fast enough? Is their line counting system fair?
Any other comments appreciated.
As I said before, each MT has to find a company that fits their needs and schedule. I've been with Precyse going on 4 years (they are only 6 years old) and love it. Pay is good, I always have work (of course I work a split shift by choice and there is always work), and have been on the same 2 accounts the whole time. They do not hold your hand, you have to be independent, but I like that. I never have PC problems, paycheck problems, or problems achieving my lines. I love their PTO account and the fact that it adds up so quickly. I've been doing this a long time and by far this is best national I have worked for thus far.
That's my 2 cents!
Try Precyse, could get 9-10 cpl
Good benefits, too.
anyone working for Precyse or know anything about them? thanks
I just called the Precyse telephone number and used the prompts for employment opportunities, and medical transcription. The automated voice said, Just a minute, please... Then there was screeching, like a fax machine! ROFL!
Anybody know a better way to contact them? I took their on-line test last week, and I just wanted to follow up.
I have looked in the archives. Awhile back it seemed there were mostly good things to say about them. Now I see more negative posts. Is someone reading this who wouldn't mind it if I Email and ask some specifics? TIA.
Precyse uses it too.
Precyse MTs, (sm)
I will be training on Precyse soon. Just wondered if you guys had any pointers about getting started off on the right foot. Also, do any of you use your own PC or do you use theirs?
I am thinking about looking into Precyse. Does anyone have any really bad experiences with them such as lack of work etc.?
I believe Precyse does too. -nm
Does anyone know anything good or bad about Precyse, preferably from others that work for them or have worked for them? Interested in possibly checking them out and applying, but have not heard much about them. Likes, dislikes, benefits, requirements, etc., etc. Do they require you to have your own computer or rent from them? Do they have full-time, part-time or SE status? Basically anything you could offer in terms about the company would be great.
Hmmm, I find it very interesting that someone would encourage you to stay with MQ and see if it gets better...amazing. I've worked there too on my rounds of nationals and it isn't pretty. I will continue to say that Precyse is a great company to work for, been there 4+ years and have no desire to look anywhere else. In truth, I cannot give you any input regarding the QA positions (I've been offered one, but hate QA work, prefer transcribing---and I make more money that way). I can tell you from an MT standpoint (and having done QA at other companies), they are consistent and constructive with the quarterly reviews and YES, they actually do the quarterly reviews, not just claim to do the reviews like others I have worked for in the past. That's my 2-cents.
To anyone who has applied, how long did it take Precyse to get back with you after you completed the test at mttest.com? Thanks so much.
Anyone have anything to say about Precyse? Good or bad?
I left MQ, went to Precyse, now back at MQ. Precyse is wonderful when recruiting, then ditch you without answering emails, phone calls, etc. Because I tested high score they gave me their absolute worst accounts (verified by QA who was frustrated when I quit shortly after starting .... I was one of many).
Just got a job with Precyse and it sounds like an awesome company; people are so nice, not like MQ. They said we will work as a team, wow, never had that at MQ. I am so happy. Rad Transcriptionist for 23 years and finally going to be appreciated. Benefits and sign on bonus. Free equipment and reimbursement for internet connection every three months 60.00. I cannot wait to get started.
I also start Precyse Tuesday. I'm really excited. My pay is actually better than it was with MQ with the new rewards plan. I have been in contact with a Precyse employee and she has nothing but good things to say about them. I don't think any company is perfect. I'm just glad to be getting away from MQ and moving on to something better. Good luck to ya!
Thanks Precyse MT
I need some encouragement, after 13 years with the company from hell.
To all looking for Radiology transcription full-time at home Precyse is hiring and they are the most nicest considerate people I have ever met. Check out their web page for what they offer. I reviewed the boards about Precyse and found only 1 or 2 negatives.
Thanks for the feedback. I just applied, already took the tests, so here's hoping!
Agree 100% If Pam is still the QA manager there, you are in the right place. She is tops. What you don't already know you will absolutely learn there.
I just started with Precyse and the communication has been wonderful. I have had emails and calls like crazy. I would try and call your supervisor, make sure she's not on vacation or something.
They have been running out of work.
Someone is calling me today regarding more information on the job. I am reluctant to take a 3rd shift position but, at this point, I might accept it because I need to make a change.
Has anyone had contact from Precyse after accepting a position recently?
Has anyone heard back from Precyse regarding the QA positions they had advertised the past couple of weeks? I'm wondering because I was called for three separate interviews, then nothing. I haven't heard back in over a week. I thought about calling them, but then I wonder if maybe this is some kind of sign??!!
I heard from them right after I submitted resume. Had an interview with recruiter which went very well. Two days later had a second interview with someone in management. I thought that went well, too, and was told I'd be hearing from a third interviewer. I heard nothing more in spite of leaving messages with the management person and an e-mail with recruiter. That was 2 weeks ago. I finally gave up. I was disappointed since they sounded like a very good company... sigh.
I've been with Precyse for almost 4 years and have absolutely no complaints on my end. If you want to know anything specific, please Email me. Everyone has an opinion, and I respect that, but the positives with this company far outweigh the negatives (and I've worked for other nationals).
Thanks for the information. I may apply there. I have never used Medrite before and have worked for other places where their platform was horrible!
Thanks again. Lucy
I've just been hired at Precyse as QA Editor. So far everything has gone excellent. Everyone is very friend. There is tons of work. I have no problems with communication. All e-mails/phone calls are responded to immediately. Wonderful company IMO so far. Hope that helps.
Anyone else get an offer from Precyse, ask for time to think about it, and when you accepted via e-mail/left message on voice mail, you never heard from them again? I would suggest you not waste your time applying to this place.
I had several interviews, offer, accepted position, and love the company. No complaints at all.
Could someone who currently works for PreCyse, please Email me? Thanks a lot.
Is Precyse an IC or employeee co?
Do they offer full-time and part-time? Full time only.
If so, what are line requirements. 10,500 lines per pay period (2 weeks); $50 bonus for 12,000 lines in a pay period.
Do you have to do your lines within an 8-hour time frame? They will work with you on your schedule.
Is their platform Word based? Yes -- similar to DocQScribe
Audio transferred via internet or phone? Internet
Lines calculated 65 characters with spaces? Yes
Do they start as high as 10 cents a line? Can't say with certainty yes or no. Depends on shift and days worked.
Do you run out of work often? Not lately. Do have usual slow periods around the holidays.
Thanks for your response. I tested with four companies and was offered positions by all four and here I am with Precyse, my second day. They have my days off screwed up and I've emailed the recruiter, as well as the manager, and no response. Poops me off. Who do you work for now? I'm thinking of cutting my relationship with Precyse now. They can answer an email.
I have never had a problem with communication with Precyse. I have had over 500 emails from them since I started (2/21/2006) and several phone calls.
I started with this company a couple of months ago. I researched a lot of companies prior to applying and testing with Precyse. The experience has been wonderful. I even referred 2 other MTs in the last month, one being my sister-in-law, who absolutely loves them as well. The communication is above and beyond anything I could have expected. There are daily emails. I think I have over 500 since I was hired on. That's much better than the 1-2 a day I was getting with MQ. You are allowed to use IM and there's always someone on there if you need anything. Help desk is on there 24/7, along with QA, WFC, and other MTs. I honestly cannot say enough about this company. They are just absolutely amazing.
Considering I went from 1-2 emails a day, if that, from MQ, I love it. There is constant communication and I have never had any problems with Precyse. I have referred 2 other MTs in the last month. One is my sister-in-law and she is extremely happy with Precyse. I love the communication and getting updates and they also email you sites that might be helpful to you while you are working. The emails are there for the employees to help out in any way. I think it's great. If you like a company that doesn't communicate, then maybe you should check out MQ.
Actually they're very organized. During training, I received all my reports back from QA and still receive back the ones I send to them, if any. Each WFC sends out 1-2 emails of updates letting us know where our account status stands. There are also emails of sites that may be helpful to us when working. We also get our paystubs via email and updates about the company, ie new hires, newsletters.
I'm sorry you had such a bad experience. I absolutely love it. As far as the emails go, it's nice to have that communication. When I first started, I got all my corrected reports back from QA. They also send out emails about sites that may help you out when you are working. They also send out newsletters and paystubs via email which is nice. I think other people might be a bit jealous or they just have nothing better to do than get on here and stir the pot. I don't care. I absolutely love it. I hope you have found another company that suits you better, as well! :)
