scam..scam..thank ya maam..
I wholeheartedly agree - i am totally digusted by the audacity of these people who assume that everyone is dumb as a rock and will send them money..I have heard reports that some people HAVE sent them money, and it just amazes me that some people actually believe them!
Trans Tech Medical Solutions or Trans Tech Svcs?
Which is the one that everyone is always saying is so good to work for?  Trans Tech Medical Solutions or Trans Tech Services out of Iowa?  Thanks for any clarity you can provide!!!!
United TR
Would love to hear from anyone who works for this company. Pay? Benefits? Work load? Do they provide equipment? Any info is greatly appreciated.
I tested with them and they had one very unreasonable transcription test (one particular note) that totally turned me off.  Horrible sound quality on top of a heavy ESL accent.  I was afraid that was a hint on what was to come with that company so I never finished the test. 
United Tran
What is the deal with United Tran?  Is it a reputable company?  Reading an ad from them, I thought it sounded good; but then when I went to their website, I noticed some misspellings.  Just made me wonder.  What does anyone know about them?
United Transcription
Recruiter, Melissa, had me do a questionaire first. after she was satisfied with this, she wanted to send me a pre-employment screening test. However, it looked like she was only going to send it to me if I had planning on taking it RIGHT THEN AND THERE just because it was timed and needed to be back in 24 hours (we are about 6 hours apart, and I do have another job). She did this twice. I waited for days. Why couldn't she just send the test as an attachment to download like NORMAL companies would?????

I finally emailed the company and told them how unprofessional they were, particularly Melissa, and that they actually did me a favor.

United Transcription

Can anyone tell me anything about United Transcription? I've done a search and cannot come up with much.  TIA!

I think there is a United Transcription in NC, not SC. (sm)
... and there is another company out of India. The one in NC is not a scam, though they are a young company. When I talked to them, it sounded like they used fabulous software. The bad thing is that they still don't seem to have a website, which I think they should so people could more easily distinguish them from the Indian company.
Does anyone know anything about United Transcription?

The ad looks like it's a good company to work for, but looks can be deceiving.  Anyone have personal experience with them currently or in the past?  TIA

United Transcription

Does anyone currently work for this company or has worked for this company in the past?  If so, give me the good, the bad, the ugly and otherwise!


United Tran
Yes...I did research on United Tran through the BBS and what I found is that they are out of Florida.  This is a company that has changed their name.  I can't remember but it seems that the origional company was out of Colorado then moved to Florida and started under a different name and now it is United Tran.  Be careful on this one....look at the BBS report.
United Stinks!
I tried to work for United for a few days.  I specified MULTIPLE times I am NOT a morning person.  They disrespected me and called ALL DAY, started phoning before 7 a.m. to ensure I don't sleep at all since I went to bed after 6 a.m.!!!!  They sent an email telling me to phone them when I feel like speaking to them.  Great...I won't break any nails dialing the phone - TWO MORE STAFF PEOPLE CALLED ME TO HARASS FURTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Why were they calling?  To ask why I was not typing right then!!!  Well duh!!!  Second shift begins at 3 p.m. my time and all this drama was going on at 1 p.m. my time!!!!!!!!!!  HELLO!!!!!!!!!  GET AN EDUCATION!!!!!!!!  LEARN THE TIME ZONES JERKS!!!!!!!!!  So, for the money and the harassment and the sweat shop atmosphere, I recommend any other company. This one is not worth the hassle, the time, or the energy since the staff is disrespectful, hateful, inflexible, inconsiderate, unprofessional and unacceptable.  Is the money even worth it?  No, for my 15 years' experience, they offered 0.08 a line.  Oh..another thing...I told them I would work this weekend - they don't have an auto job feed so it took over 3-4 hours for someone to 'send me work since their system is antiquated.  Yes, you have to rely on someone to send you work in order to have anything to type and then they send you 2 jobs, you type, you request more work, and you get more work after having downtime of 2 hours.  So...in 8 hours, you are lucky to have typed 5-8 jobs.  So, to get up to 15 jobs, count on 12-16 hours a day!!!! 
United Transcription

Will you email me with the details. 


Has anyone heard of United Transcription?

Anyone know about United Transcription

Just want to know what they pay before I go and take the voice test.


Any info is appreciated, Thanx!

United Transcription in NC
Does anyone have any experience with this company?  Thanks!
Okay, thanks - I'll assume that no bad input regarding this company is a good sign!
Skilled and United. sm

Anyone heard of United Tran?


Any info on United Transcription?
Have seen many ads on Monster..Just wondered if there was any info out there on them. 
United Transcription, Inc. Any Info?
Anyone heard of United Transcription? nm
Australia and United Kingdom......
United Transcription/RI Unlimited.
Keep away from United Transcription.  They literally change your reports at QA and blame you for it.  Also, RI Unlimited.  They give you 3 tests, avoid all phone calls and then tell you they don't need any help.  Also this minutes thing.  We should turn them all in for not paying taxes.  Bring back the Independent in IC.  No sure I am staying in this field much longer.  They want it all and don't even allow for error.  Minimum wage is going up.  You are better off working in WalMart. 
United, Archivus, Transportal. sm

I did look up prior posts on these companies but did not find the answer to this question.  Do any of these companies hire IC?  Do these companies base full time on line count or hours if they have employee status?

Thanks for your help.  I am trying to narrow down my search.  I appreciate it.

United Medical Services
out of Colorado....Any info on this company?  Any and all info appreciated.  TIA
United Transcription in North Carolina
Anyone familiar with this company?  If so, would you recommend them?  Thank you.
United Transcription out of North Carolina
Hi Fellow MTs:   Would anyone have any information on this company, United Transcription out of Charlotte, North Carolina?  Any information would be helpful.  Also does anyone know if they pay for spaces or benefits?   Thanks
You said a mouthful, sister. United we stand,
divided we fall. Right now, we're falling.
Any other companies besides United Transcription use MPWord software? nm
Anyone with any experience with United Transcription? If you check out their website, SM
they're just the greatest MT company that there ever was.  Anybody with any real experience with them?
Another Crushed United States Income Source
There is also the reputable company out of No. Carolina that's NOT the United Tran with the train
Vince, thank you so much for posting and with specific details. I worked for a similar company and had a great deal of trouble getting paid. I wished then that I had known about a board like this and been warned! Now I research any prospective jobs/companies on these boards before I accept. Again, thank you for the warning!:)
They did, but it was a SCAM!!
Their scam was hiring at $15 an hour and then not having any work, trying to starve you away, and then firing you for no reason because you confronted them on cutting your time-sheet hours in half. Thats right!!! Went in and changed the total amount of hours each day and put in half of it, so that sounds like a SCAM to me!
I got the same exact thing. I just deleted it because I smell a big SCAM too.
If they ask you for money!
Ditto -- Or if they ask you to work off a setup fee. You'll be setup alright!
They most certainly are a scam, they just try
to hide behind an MT business and software business.   With all the complaints with the BBB and even articles in magazines and work at home sites warning about them.  They didn't get all that from being an upstanding company. 
I read an article about a mortgage scam operator. He would post job ads for engineers with great benefits, salary, etc. And then call them and get info like SS# and salary etc. Because the people thought they were applying for jobs they told him everything. Then he applied for credit and mortgages in their names and got milliions of $. It was sad because people are so desperate for a good job they just don't think to be cautiuous.

Maybe anybody who sent in a resume should keep an eye on their credit reports.
Would you believe that I posted the response below about it being a SCAM to not only get the same email message from this company. Something sounds very fishy here! Don't you love the hourly range they give you without even testing you or nothing.
Got one too! Definitely a scam - nm
scam definitely

Out of curiosity, I too applied.  That has scam written all over it, and you will notice that it is gone off the board now.  NEVER, NEVER do anything that involves you opening an account for someone else, giving them your personal information, etc.  My husband is a VP for a bank and he says every day he gets people who come in with checks that they want to cash from these internet lottery winnings where they just have to cash the check and then send them so much of the check but they can keep $1200 of the money just for their time.  Then they will receive their big payment, but the reality is in the meantime, they have cashed a bad check and now they are out the money they sent in a cashier's check to the scam artist and they have to cover the amount of the bad check which is most often $5000 dollars or so.  Funny enough when my husband explains this to most people, they get mad at him for not cashing the check, because they soooooo want to believe they really won the lottery not to mention they sooooo want the $1200 they could get right away.  Never mind the fact that he just actually saved them $5000 + money in NSF fees.  At any rate, be careful out there, the world is FULL of scam artists just waiting to steal your hard earned money!!  Stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas All!!

NOT a scam
I did do my research. Ameriplan has a terrific rating with the BBB. Just where did you get your info??
What's the scam? nm

A man contacted me saying he had a job opening. Used my information, falsified my resume (i am a new mt), set up an interview with a company, wanted me to lie about my experience, and wanted ALL contact to go through him.  He had set up a fake yahoo account and was communicating with this company as me, I had no knowledge of it. He would only communicate with me through yahoo messenger. Come to find out he is from Nigeria, not sure how he was going to make money off of me, but very fishy. Be very careful, it is amazing that people can do things like this.
Are they a scam?
Part of being a good MT is doing your research. Start here, research past posts, Google them, call the BBB in your areas, call local hospitals and ask if they would hire anyone with their so-called education, which is about as worthless as something that fell out of a Cracker Jack box. RUN!
