Does anyone currently work (or have recently worked) with Sten-Tel in Mass? If so, could you please provide information regarding their QA Editor positions? I am thinking of applying with them. Do they pay on time? Do they pay correctly? Is there plenty of work or do you run out often? Are they flexible with scheduling? Thank you for any information you can provide.

I love working on the Sten Tel platform. Very user friendly, a good Work based platform. I pull off my jobs and put them in a folder and work from that folder. A bonus is if I lose Internet connection, I can continue to work out of my folder and just u/l when get Internet back.
I have worked for them for about 6 months now....I do mostly editing with voice recognition...I enjoy it very much, and I have found the company to be extremely flexible and very nice!

I've never heard of sten-tel. is it a stenography company?
As far as I know, tranny is slang for transvestite... What in the world could that mean?? Good luck.
I start training with them next week, so I am afraid I can't be much help info wise, but if you would like I would be happy to tell you how it goes. I, personally, have only heard positive things about this company. In my opinion, if the pay is what you are looking for and you want an IC position, then go for it.
Any one have feedback on this company? I was hired for a QA/editor position but have heard nothing since.....????
I work for Sten-Tel, and they are THE nicest people. This is the second time I have worked for them, so I am on a different account than the last time, but I really like working there.
There is no work at Sten-Tel right now for the past 2 to 3 days!!
I wonder if she is still there at Sten-Tel.
She was more than ignorant with her carelessness.
3.5 cpl at Sten Tel
Hey all, just saw on the job board that Sten-Tel is hiring!! They're a great company! So check them out, you might want to send a resume and take their test!! They're just wonderful!! I work for them and they're great! Good accounts and a good bunch of people working there and also a great platform!!! Check it out!!
Do they offer Radiology positions?
Go to the MTJobs.com board and you'll see that in the Sten-Tel job listing, there are phone numbers and a link to their email! Check them out!
If you go to www.mtjobs.com Sten-tel has 2 ads on there, one for MT one for editor. Hope that helps.
Can you tell me which Sten-Tel you work for? In doing a search I find a lot of companies with the Sten-Tel name. Also, are you an IC or an employee. Thank you
if you go to www.mtjobs.com and look, Sten-tel is hiring MTs and editors. They are all IC positions.
I worked for Sten-Tel for a short time doing QA work PT. I didn't have much experience with the company but what I did have was good. The program was good. The people were great. There always seemed to be tons of work. The pay for QA was a little low compared to others but no complaints about the company. Like I said though, I just worked part time for a while.
I got an offer from Sten-Tel and the pay seems pretty good but I've heard some not-so-great things. Any recent info on their MA office?
They are not a very high paying company, even with experienced transcriptionists.
I can't believe I misspelled that?!?!?! LOL
Hi. Has anyone worked for sten-tel? if so, what platform do they use? How are they to work for? Are you able to have flexibility with your schedule? is the pay decent?
Any help would be very much appreciated
I'm confused. Why is there a company called sten-tel with a website?
the one I am looking into is in MA also. how long ago did you work for them? They told me I could keep a total of the line count myself in the tools box. Do you have to type on various platforms?
I appreciate your help.
I worked for them about two years ago, for about three weeks time. I used their platform, but only for downloading and uploading files. I used Word to type my reports. Yes, I do remember being able to *view* a total of my line count, but they did the counting, not me. I did not have to type into their platform at that time, but as the poster below suggested, *who I don't think is too reliable*, they may have accounts where you do use a different platform to type into. It all depends on the account I suppose. I just hope the male coordinator I had is no longer there. He used IM to keep track of me and even when I was not scheduled to be working, he would ask me why I was not working. He was awful. When I told him I no longer wanted to work for him because he really did not seem to have a handle on the coordinating part of his job, he sent me *copies* of my work stating that words were missing, etc. and that my work was subquality. I don't know why he did not realize that I had copies of my own work that proved that I had no missing words. I threatened to report him to management and he left me alone after that. mind you, I had already quit by that time. I cannot remember his name. Just be careful, okay? I had a bad experience with them, so I am not completely objective, but I would not completely trust them, either. JMO. good luck.
this doesn't sound good. I finally got a hold of other posts on them. Do you think you have to be careful when working as a IC as far as getting paid on time? Do you mind me asking who you work for? I get many hopeful prospects in then in the end it does not look good. I hate to jump from the fire to the frying pan.
Thank you for your help.
anyone have anything good to say about sten-tel. I saw some postings on here not too good but just wondering if anyone has had a good experience with them.
Sten-Tel, in MA
I was wondering if anybody has any info on them? I am supposed to start working with them and just want to opinions/experiences. Also, I know their pay is low, but do you still make a decent amount of money?
I have worked for them for about a year also. Checks always on time, pleasant people and no one bugs me. You would have to see what they offer you and that would depend on your experience and how you test. They will hire MTs with less than a year and they also offer you work in other specialties if you need more work. I work when I feel like it:)
There are other companies with better benefits and platforms but this is a decent company that pays on time, and if you need flexibility you will certainly find that with them.
Is sten-tel a franchise like a mcdonalds? ? I thought I saw this somewhere on this site but cannot find it now. So if you get hired for them, who actually are you working for?
Anyone have any experience with this company?
I have worked for Sten-Tel for almost a year. I have never not received my pay check on time and have never had it be incorrect. I am on 3 accounts and NEVER run out of work unless it's some sort of holiday and is slow for a day or a half a day. Everyone has been nothing but professional to me, and my experience has been good. Some people hear one person say something negative about a company and assume there's nothing good there. I know a lot of happy people at Sten-Tel. Good luck in your decision. Becky
Please email me if you have any info on Sten-Tel. Appreciate it! Considering position.
I work for them currently,they pay on time and they are pleasant to deal with. They have been very flexible with work schedules.
Is Sten-Tel understanding with MT scheduling needs? I am so unhappy where I am now and I want out, but I cannot work set shifts until my youngest child is a bit older and doesn't need me so much for homework help ect . . .
I worked there a while and then quit due to the low pay. They were paying next to nothing for an IC status position. They weren't worth the trouble and I think they are the only company left not using direct deposit. They also have started only paying once a month so that is a big pain
They offered me a job a one point and the E-mail wasn't working for over a month. They screwed around and around and I got sick of waiting. Also, they had me scheduled to work from the Mass. office, but there was no 800 number to call. Not worth the long distance phone calls for the pay. I got sick of the E-mail not working and I didn't feel the need to buy calling cards to phone them long distance and beg for my training to start. Walked away and haven't looked back.
I was QA with them for about 6 months. They definitely paid on time. They have plenty of work and you can always ask for more and also you can take a secondary acct. Very easy to learn.
I wouldn't hesitate.
Which Sten Tel?
I worked for them as an IC part-time. They pay on time and they don't bug you. Very flexible with scheduling. As far as amount of work you would likely need to work on multiple accounts but I have found that true of most places. I left for employee status at another company.
Any information on this company? It is the one out of Springfield, MA. They use eScription. Anybody work for them? Are you making any money with VR? Thanks in advance.
Anyone know anything about Sten-Tel? Any info is greatly appreciated! Need info on how QA is, office staff, platform, etc. TIA!!!
I was offered a job with Sten-Tel as QA. They will pay an hourly rate for the next 2 months, but will be switching to a cpl method in October. I was wondering would this be something that is worth it? If there are any other Sten-Tel QA people out there, could you please let me know if you would accept this just coming into Sten-Tel?
Nice people, but they dock your pay for errors. Your pay is dependent on QA.
Sten Tel ASP
It is a good ASP but, the support and people you have to work with are not good or even adequate. Look elsewhere!
Does ANYONE know anything about Sten-Tel? Please?
I can tell you they only pay once a month!
If it is the Sten-Tel out of Massachusetts, I work for them now and am really happy. I've had low work volumes lately, but they are very willing to work with me. However, they are planning on going to VRE by the end of the year according to a memo we received about a month ago.
I heard yesterday that their ASP has been down a lot recently.
Sten-Tel out of MA?
I worked for them about 3 months last year. They use their own ASP platform or eScription. I have worked with both and like each platform. I just had trouble making any money doing editing, but their rates were also very low. I was supposed to get a raise after 3 months. After 3.5 months, I still hadn't heard anything about a raise and emailed my AM and questioned when I would be getting this and never received a response. I emailed several times and finally gave up and sent an email that I quit. They never responded to that either. From what I have heard from others, my situation is quite common and communication is really lacking with this company. The account was great though and I would have stayed on if I had received the promised raise.
They were pretty nice to work for and left you alone pretty much. I worked on the Editscript platform for 6 months as a supplement to another IC job. Pay was once a month and on time, but I wouldn't want to have that as my only job as the pay was quite low.
