before I make any decisions about what comes next in my work life.

Would you like fries with that, Sir? Welcome to WalMart! How'm I doing so far? Do I sound sincere yet? (At least these two companies are, and always will be, USA-based.)

There's lots of recent info...
you just need to scroll down the page and maybe to page 2 or 3.
Use the "search for" box instead. Lots of info.
Lots more current info is available. It is the
worst company I ever worked for.  Sound quality horrible, the worst ESL dictators, management problems, low pay for the dictators, owners have no MT background, which means they are in it for the $$. 
Lots of info on all in the archives.
SS is a horrible company.  They are constantly hiring and new accounts isn't the reason.  I don't think Keystrokes hires for PT. 
Search the archives, lots of info on them.
Lots of info, posts weekly about them.
They offshore, pay is average.   Didn't accept position so don't know about platform.

Any recent info on MedTrans Unlimited? newest archived info is 9 months old... m

Has anything changed in 9 months? Particular worries are the invoice/pay time; one post mentioned 2 to 3 week wait and another post stated 1 week. Info from the company states pay is sent out 10 days after the last day of the billing period, but we all know what is said and what is done isn't always the same. Another concern is the platform; some mentioned it was slow and cumbersome. They have 2 platforms from what I can gather.. Are they both slow? It seemed like certain specialties were done on certain platforms, or at least that is what I got out of the archives. I really hate to jump from the frying pan to the fire so any info would be VERY much appreciated.. the good, bad, and the ugly! TIA!!

Any Axolotl employees willing to share info., platform, ESL %, etc. All info greatly appreciated. sm

Along with the platform, ESL %, pay range, lpd required, split shift or 12-24 hour window available, I would be interested in knowing your personal experience with this company, what type of relationship you have with supervisors and other coworkers, etc.  Otherwise, the all the 411. 


Current info on Diskriter?? Past info was very mixed. Either MTs hated it or liked it, does anyone

love working there and why? Do you easily meet your incentive pay or as past people have said, the ESL are so bad that you never meet the line count. I need current and new information. Isnt there a company out there that has a handful of happy employees or does all of them have both the haters and lovers. It is so hard to sort out fact from fiction sometimes and all of us have different expectations. It kind of goes along with the one man's junk is another man's treasures theory, I suppose.

Any new info on Amphion? Archive search doesn't provide new info (sm)
Looking for a part-time position with decent pay and decent workflow. There's nothing new in the archives.
Need info on eMTS out of Florida. Any info would be appreciated!
Any new updates on Focus for QA? Good info/bad info? sm msg
I checked the archives and read all the messages.  Have things changed for the better here?  Is there steady, reliable work?  Able to make any decent money?  Thanks!
Any info on Sten-Tel..not much info
Any info is appreciated.
Lots of promises, no follow through. Lots and lots of internal sm
problems. She is recruiting heavy right now as she has a CHANCE at getting a big account back. Even if they get it back, they'll blow it again from poor management.
I totally agree, your story is mine and lots, and lots of others, please
believe me when I say Keystrokes has been honest like we used to have in this profession. If I can help one Transcriptionist avoid what we have, this will all be worth it. I worked parttime for Keystrokes at the time I was fulltime with ____ and quit, 2 years later I begged them to take me back after once again my paycheck was cut in half, and they did with open arms. I don't mean to run down anyone but a lot of these transcription companies are getting obscenely rich while paying below minimum wage to transcriptionists, playing with dictation and after working for a couple of them you know who is honest and who is not. Sorry I came down so hard but the reality is there are single mothers out there that I bet cry themselves to sleep not able to give their children a decent life because it is easier to steal from us. When companies have millions of dollar to pay for other transcription companies, open transcription schools in other countries, ect., ect., you know there is a lot of money in it. That is all I am saying.
I don't think we work at the same place, but I have been working lots and lots of hours.
Very thankful to have a decent job.
Lots and lots of recent stuff in archives.
I'd like some info as well.
Would like info
Please send me some info too. orangeblossom@charter.net
I would appreciate info also.
I am from Chicago office and have heard nothing about this.   Thanks
Does anyone have any info on...
Digital Transcription, Inc.  I am looking into a part-time job and need to know how this company is to work for.  Thanks.
Here's some info...

I asked the same question a couple days ago and got some VERY VERY negative responses.  I actually told the recruiter that they had a negative reputation on these boards and she seemed flabergasted.  I needed an employee position and they hire only IC.  Pay is 9 cents/65 char line with spaces.  They have 2 hospital accounts they are hiring for; one they will send you a computer and you will use their requipment.  The other requires purchase of a C-phone.  They are standard 4 hospital.  You must commit to a minimum line count (1000 lines per day).  No benefits.  Direct deposit twice a month. 

I was not impressed and was glad when i discovered they were only looking for IC.

Hope this helps.


Anyone have info on All-Med?nm
Any info on OSI....
Good or bad, platform, etc.  Thanks
Info on SS
They are a very good company to work for.  I have been with them as an Editor for 7 months.  Pay is very good.   Unfortunately I don't believe they pay for spaces, but a lot of companies do not anymore, so therefore, you would have to decide if that is acceptable to you or not.  You can get a very flexible work schedule.  The only thing they ask is that you work when you are scheduled.  For a while, there was a lot of emails being sent out, but that has significantly decreased since certain people are gone now.  Every company has its ups and downs as we can read on these boards every day.  SoftScript is not perfect, but they are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be either.
Anyone have any info on
A search of the archives produced very little information, but I have seen them advertising several times.
Thanks for the info
Any info on E-MTS?
Thanks for the info.....
Do you use the C-phone or are you on another account?
Need info

Can anyone tell me if there is such a thing as a "slow time" when typing IMEs?


thanks for this info . .
even tho' I'm not the person who originally asked. I've also been looking for ways to submit writings, but didn't know who was on the up-and-up (should be hypenated, right?) on the net. This helps.
Thanks for the info!
