overall happiness within the company. That would be validated by number of MTs leaving - which isn't a lot, as far as I can see. Just because a few people are peevish about a few issues does not mean that it is a bad company. Maybe it is you that is a bad fit, eh?

Couple of posts down on this board show many leaving Amphion lately. nm
Most recent posts show bad as of late. nm
Oops - some posts did show up for them - mostly good, but anything else would be great.
Any other details? Decent medical/dental? Is 10c a line possible?
Old posts show they want 1200 lpd and that the work load was very uneven. nm
Recent posts show them with late or nonpayment issues. Do a search. nm
MedQuisters, topics from the Company board are being moved to the MedQuist board. MQ posts on
the first page of the Company board will be removed to open up space for other companies to post. Enjoy the new Medquist board set up for you.
I think someone on the Main Board had this problem a short time ago. Maybe a search there will show

There are enough posts on this board to
show that you're in the minority. Again, search the board if you want answers. There's no need for me to spell out details when the changes have been mentioned ad nauseum.
See main board--more posts there..NM
All MQ posts belong on MQ board. (NM)
Is it possible your posts were moved to a different board? nm

about Chronicle. My own experience was: I HATED the platform (Apex). It's an antiquated piece of junk that is slower than molasses in January and I couldn't make any money. QA can be moody and the rules on the account change often - hard to keep up with all the formatting junk. The owner is nice. The office staff is nice. Tech support is so-so as far as helpfulness. I did not like that I had to stop all Java updates and go back to an older version of Java, which really slowed my system down. Pay was on time and direct deposit. The account was okay, it was clinic and good cents per line, but there were a lot of cherrypickers who would scoop out the good reports and leave the junk for other people. I think Chronicle may have another platform besides Apex, but I am not familiar with it - you can always ask them.
if you ever read the posts over on the MQ board sm
lots of those folks didn't believe what they were told either. It just took a few years to really hit them. Now they are all screaming.
The poster has a right to post what she did. The other posters also have a right to post the positive posts they have. I am glad they did post. I just wish I had known all this before I went to work for LM, I would have weighed all this out and been more careful as far as looking for signs that I was not going to get paid, i.e., I wouldn't have done as much work the first pay period until I saw that I did get paid on time.
No MQ posts allowed on Company board. (NM)
Why do my posts on the main board keep getting deleted?
All I asked was if there is a company out there with a platform like Precyse - where you can look up the old reports by doctor, or by patient. What is so wrong with that?
Few posts near the top of pg 12 on this board. Seem to be lovers and haters
You are the same idiot that posts on the Evil Q board...
Aren't you? Jes wonderin.... (as they say in your neck of the woods!)
Just read the posts on this board from SS Management
It's obvious NOTHING HAS CHANGED AT ALL! Rude, stupid people running this company. That's why they have such a high turnover. They can't keep anyone! Hello! I mean, look, this is a good example of how dense the mgt of SS is: They post awful, rude, childish CRAP on this board and then try to tell you, oh, things have changed, it's not like that anymore. Yeah, right...
I just love it when management posts on this board.
either since there is no work. LOL too funny.
Some of us are finding another board that doesn't delete our posts
Doesn't this board not allow posts or ads by companies that outsource?
Do a search of this board for Shapin and see how many negative posts there are. nm
I'm sure you'very read many posts about mandatory OT on this board.
Search on the company board. Lots of posts.
many recent negative posts on Company Board
Lots of posts recently, look down the board, search
I have deleted one of your posts. Do not post names of employees on this board. Thank you. nm
Search company board. Lots of posts recently, all
bad. Each and every one.
They advertise on the "other" jobs board. Lots of posts about them here. nm
many recent negative posts of Amphion on Company Board
there are a couple of recent posts on the main board, bout halfway down...
Also check the archives, you could do much better for yourself...
Read down the board. Mentioned just 2 posts below yours and mentioned
multiple times this week.
Posts from April said everyone gets 8.5 cpl/newbie or experienced. Recent posts said
That is what I say too, don't tell me, show me. nm
No, this just goes to show yet another MT
Pay attention. The OP said she was promised a call on Monday and it is now Wednesday. I don't see where your comments are even close to what the OP is trying to put forth.
Another post a while back stated they received a canned text e-mail. How unprofessional is that? If they want to advertise, then they should respond to all applicants no matter what. Let's be grownups now!
Sad, isn't it. Just goes to show that
ALL companies are out to pocket profit from MTs anymore. No longer is the watching out for their employees (and I'm talking about all companies, manufacturing, etc., not just TT), but GREED/PROFIT is the name of the game.
Mixing VR with standard transcribing is a process that really cuts the lines, at least in my case. I'm not as flexible as I once was. Different set of rules for straight and VR specifications.
It just goes to show ya...
These people have absolutely no idea what we do, the experience and technique required to do medical documentation/transcription and the superhuman auditory prowess required to translate some of these dictators. Oh we type, so we must be clerical. We I can tell you right now that secretaries make at least $15-20.00/hr now days.
$10.00/hr, please. What an insult. If this is the case to stay in business, I suggest everyone up the food chain cut their salaries by 50%.
You know if we were organized and every MT around the U.S. checked out for 24 hours, think of the havoc! They are soooo lucky that we are not, overseas outsourcing notwithstanding.
250?!! Never heard of that. Most ads show 120-150 lph. nm
Show me the money
All their information is available on their website, www.PhoenixMedCom.com, including their cpl. For me, I'm making more money than I did at the large nationals without all the stress!
Show me the money
it's there for the taking. Help yourself.
You also know if you show up for 8 hours
you get the same pay you were promised. We work Piece Work, backtground noise, ESL, you never know when you step on the pedal what you are going to get. Some people thrive on that, I find I cant' trust it. Some days bat out 1500 lines NO PROBLEM, the next day everything goes wrong and you get 950. There are so many variables in this business, don't compare it to a 9-5 job where you walk in, walk out. I don't mind evolution but I don't trust it right now. And I think most of the people voicing concerns are certainly professional, if not they wouldn't have STUCK WITH IT so long. And we have all been BURNT before. And most places you work UP THE LADDER, you do holidays for years and then move up. I haven't had a raise in this place for 3+ years, not because I am UNPROFESSIONAL (99% QC) but because every year they move me to a new office as they keeping EVOLVING. You get my point????
show me the humor! Show me the humor!
well, blow me down!
Because, you show up to work, sm
put aside that time to do so (as a professional would), and should have the work available. If not, then get paid for your troubles. It's like being on a retainer, you pay to have the person available. Too bad it does not work this way for MTs. Companies have the best of everything. It is the IC who gets ripped off.
Show me the money!!
I am new to medical transcription, and was wondering how long it will take until I can support myself in this profession. The company I am working for pays $0.08 for transcribing, and $0.04 for editing. 99% of the work I do is editing computer generated reports. So I am earning an embarrassing $10.00 per day. This company works with India, so don't know if that plays a part in it or not. Thanks Here it is Monday morning, and they don't have any work for me today.
At least you show you do have a better grasp of the
and I appreciate your sharing that insight. Even on this site less than a year ago, the head of one of the largest offshoring MTSOs posted a message directly to me to begin dialog on this board. The problem was that I never designated myself as the spokesperson for anyone else here on this board and was beaten about the ears rather soundly for being what others considered disrespectful towards him. No one *got* what it was I was saying. He is a board member of AHIMA. He is a millionaire. You would have thought he was god in person the way others thought we should treat him with a higher degree of respect. I don't respect someone advocating the investment of developing land, facilities, training, and employment of more than 5000 Indians and offering some of the lowest pay in the industry in these United States.
There is a small to midsize national that has a nonorganization policy in its employee handbook. That is just one that I know of, and I can predict that will begin to become the norm now that AHIMA and AAMT have gotten federal monies beginning to flow for education and internships for MTs...with the largest interest of these monies going to same said millionaires. They don't want to hear how some of need food stamps, Medicaid and housing subsidies to get by on what we make in today's US-MT-less-than-friendly environment. They blame us, not what they have done. What is even more sad is that we have allowed it to happen by turning blind eyes.
If we want to make an impact and have a voice, each and every US MT needs to be selective about the MTSOs we choice to work for, what our wage should be, the benefits we want and decline to accept what is not acceptable. Unfortunately because we are so splintered, we cannot collectively form a picket line and hold posters and chant. Heck, we can't even do that in the online environment as long as there are MTs who think the millionaires deserve to be treated with respect they have NOT earned - IMHO.
I stand behind what I say, but there is only so much I can do personally. It is up to each US MT and the new MTs coming into this business don't support this philosophy because they don't know what we do – we have to teach those who are willing to listen.

Just saw a show (can't remember which)
The show was about foreign people with false identities working under Americans' names and social security #s.
