Anyone out there working for Rapid Transcript as an editor? How long do you have to wait before being paid? I was thinking about starting to work for them but am having second thoughts. Would love to hear from current employees.

Rapid Tran-Script, LTD versus Rapid Transcript, Inc
Is Rapid Tran-Script, LTD and Rapid Transcript, Inc both are same companies? I will really appricate any information regarding this.
Rapid Tran-Script, LTD using Demesys as their workflow system name.
I am working for them from the last two months but not have getting paid till now...........Thanks!
I would like to contact anyone that has ever worked for Rapid Transcript out of Los Angeles or Las Vegas. I am contacting the Attorney General Offices in both of those states regarding the pay practice (or no pay practice) of this company.
I would be more than careful of this company. It does not pay its MTs.
Stay away from Rapid Transcript -- PLEASE!!!
I started with Rapid about a month ago and received my first check yesterday. Maybe they are changing their ways.
Anyone work for or know anything about Rapid Transcript?
They appear to have an Indian connection now. See their current ad. I suppose only time will tell if this has improved anything or not.
Amy is so right about this company using new employees to get free work. Last year, I was hired by them to be a QA Editor. They had a probation period (which I completely understand), but they were so fussy when it came to formatting, punctuation, spacing, etc. that they kept asking that I transcribe 5 more reports -- yes TRANSCRIBE! I was hired as an editor, but I was required to transcribe these reports so that they could make sure I understood what their process was. To make a long story short, after being asked to transcribe 5 more reports about 10 times, I finally stood up and said something. They then proceed to say that I was not what there were looking for in an editor, but that if I wanted a transcription job, they would be more than happy to hire me!!! Can you believe their gall? I wasn't good enough to be an editor, which I never really got a chance to do in the first place, and then they offered me a typing job! I, too, had a lot of trouble getting payment from these people. I would email two, maybe three, times a day asking about my payment. It took months (after I verbally refused to work for them until I received payment) and finally I received it in full and said good riddens to bad rubbish! PLEASE BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY!!
Are you a new employee, i.e. hired in the last month? If you read your contract with Rapid, it takes 30 days to get you into the system and process your first check. I was upset that I did not get paid after being with the company 2 weeks until someone pointed out the clause in the the contract, which I had not read carefully enough. I have worked for companies who have done the same thing - made me wait a month for my first check. When I saw this and other posts, I confronted the company about it. The person with whom I spoke was very nice and patient about it and stated emphatically that I would receive my first check and when. I know Rapid has had problems in the past, but rather than get upset over these posts, which I did, I am going to give the company a chance.
Anyone know anything about them? Just did a radiology test. Looking for company with benefits for part time. Any out there?
Nevermind my last post. Just saw all the feedback on them. Too bad I just wasted all this time doing their darn test.
Any info on Rapid Transcript in CA?
I guess I should say recent experience with them since I just read the old reviews ;(
Could be Rapid Transcript. nm
Rapid Transcript, Inc.
Yes, that's it. Now I have seen some replies in very old posts so was wondering if anybody could give me a more recent heads-up on them?
Thanks in advance.
A word to the wise...
Rapid Transcript does
I hear they are getting some new clinic and doctor's accounts (non-hospital) which will pay more timely, and ensure prompt payments to their MTs. They are always looking for sharp people. In the past, they have been a slow payer of ICs bcuz hospitals were slow payers, but it looks like this is turning around. They are very nice and accommodating, and appreciate careful work. ICs only. Any schedule usually; very flexible.
I thought I would put in a good word for Rapid Transcripts... I did some work for them and got a check today. There have been negative posts that they don't pay. They had told me it may take up to 45 days for a check, and it was a little less than that.
Stay far away from this company. I have worked for them for 2 1/2 years and they owe me lots of money. Shame on me!!!!!
Well, I found out it is Rapid Transcript - sm
I will NOT work for them - people have had trouble getting their pay and I believe they might outsource.
Rapid Transcript used to, I think. I'd be careful of them, though. nm
Anyone work for Rapid Transcript (RTI)
And are you having problems being paid?
CURRENT Rapid Transcript IC's
I have been reading past posts about the problems people have been having getting paid by Rapid Transcript. What I am wondering is if anyone is CURRENTLY contracting with them and getting paid on time or is it just a wast of time to do work for them because I will not get paid in a timely fashion? I am supposed to start editing for them on Monday, but I'm not even going to waste my time if they are continuing this non-payment policy.
Thanks for any and all input.
Anyone work for Rapid Transcript, INC as an editor ? nm
RAPID TRANSCRIPT~ Any Info on company???
Just Curious if anyone knows anything good or bad about this company. Thank You!
Rapid Transcript- Is anyone else having problems getting paid?
I was thinking about applying for an MT position with this company and I am so happy that I read this message about non-payment. How can they get away with it? Is anyone else having this problem or did they accidently mess up on just paying this individual? Very unfortunate situation. I hope Amy gets paid for her work and they are held accountable for non-payment.
Is anyone else having trouble getting paid by RAPID TRANSCRIPT lately???????????
Please let me know if any else who reads this message is having trouble getting paid from RAPID TRANSCRIPT from last month. I stopped working for them when pay was not on time and I am still awaiting payment. Now, I am behind on rent and I need to know when I am going to get paid. I'm about to check into LEGAL action!
Rapid Transcript may have not paid in the past, But
I have never had a problem receiving my pay. I have worked for the company for 8 months now. I have not one time had to complain about not receiving my check. I always get it when it is due. It is not direct deposited, so it is possible for it to be a day earlier or a day later than you expect it sometimes only because it gets sent by mail. Hope this helps.
I'm looking for info on the company - Rapid Transcript.
Any info. on Rapid Transcript, Inc? Thanks in advance for your time!
Hi, I would greatly appreciate any information on Rapid Transcript, Inc., i.e. line rates, paycheck accuracy, benefits, etc. Thank you kindly!!
Rapid Transcript, Inc (RTI) does not pay its employees in a timely manner, if at all
I would be very hesitant to work for this company. I have filed complaints against them with the Attorney General's Office and with the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement.
If you go to the Better Business Bureau page and look this company up you will also see that they have a F rating.
It is very unfortunate, because they have good dictators at good hospitals and I am sure that they are paid in a timely manner, you would think that they would do the same for their contracted employees.
They stated in an e-mail to me that I should not contract my services out if I expect to be paid. They do not care about their employees at all. They are just using new employees to get free work.
Rapid Transcript - Tried archive search, but couldn't find!
Rapid Transcript - Anyone heard of them? Worked for them? Good and bad, please!
Rapid Transcript, Inc- Does anyone have any recent info on this company...current/previous employees
I am wondering about anyone who has recently or is currently working for this company...any input is appreciated. There is some Bad talk about non-payment in the search archives from 2003-2004, but no recent talk. Just curious. :)
It happened to me 2 years ago, and through some digging I found out it had been going on for over 2 years already. I've been watching the posts since then, and it's still going on now. I finally got my money, but it took quite a while. I hope you manage to get some results with the AG. Good luck!
They have a long history of not paying.
They have a long history of not paying people. I worked for them 4 years ago, found out it had been happening for at least 2 years, and according to the boards, it's still happening.
I applied for Radiology Trans. Pay scale is WAY TOO LOW. Don't bother
I worked for them on several Rad accounts. Pay scale was great. The problem was getting the money I had earned. From what I found out, they have long history of not paying their people.
This problem has been going on for years. It's been over 3 years since I got my last paycheck from them. I have diligently watched the boards since then to warn anyone else not to work for them. I was threatened by Rapid's owner with a deformation of character lawsuit. What a joke!
Does anyone have any information on Transcript USA?
Does anyone have any first hand information about working with this company. I have not seen any posts about them, good or bad. If anyone can give me any feedback, I would appreciate it. Please email me confidentially if you do not want to post publically on the boards.
Thanks in advance.
I would greatly appreciate the info...they are ones on the top of my list and noone seems to know much about them. I know transcription relief services is different, do you know anything about them?
Would anyone have any recent info on this company they would care to share? It would be much appreciated. Don't know if it is a new company or has just changed its' name recently. Thanks.
Any info that could be shared would be appreciated - plaftorm, pay, bennies, etc....
Thanks in advance!
Rapid Transcription - CA (sm)
I know there are past posts that this company does not pay. Does anyone have any recent experience, say within the last 3-4 months with this company? I have an opportunity to transcribe for them, but need to make sure that I am going to be paid and ON TIME. Thanks for any and all feedback.
Don't wanna get burned!!!
I worked for Rapid for one night. There was no training at all and I could not find out to whom you address a question. The whole hiring process seemed very strange to me, so I quit before I could encounter a monetary loss. I do believe it is a company in India.
and it is rapid-fire
questions, bam, bam, bam. so have a cup of coffee about 1/2 hour before. When I took it the recruiter actually apologized for their line rate.
Does anyone know anything about them? I read old posts, but would like to see if anyone knows anything more recent.
Rapid Transcripts Inc
Rapid transcripts still have not paid me my salary. It has been almost a year since the last paycheck and now they are not answering my emails. DO NOT WORK for this company. They owe me $1662.50
I have been in contact last with Sonja Sacoleman and Winston from the accounting department but now they are ignoring my emails and even blocked my address.
Can anyone advice me on what to do so i can get my salary? Thank you
Any info on Transcript-USA ?
