Especially with the east coast/west coast difference
Thanks - I'm on the East Coast too
I'll have to look around here some more.  Thanks.
Not just CA - east coast here and 100K is not all that much
for a couple to make. Many married couples I know make around that it and are just scraping by.
East coast MT/MEs? Saw Futurenet's ad (sm)
and was just curious as to why they have to live on the east coast.  Client preference?  Time zones? 
They advertised for east coast ME.
That's what I applied for. I have a FT job too, just want part-time ME at night to give my fingers a rest.
I think I figured it out. Is this person on the east coast? nm
East Coast, drawl, cobbler. n/m
Today is the last day for a large hospital on the East Coast.
No doubt about it.
No, not Chicago, bit further east. nm
Most doctors now are from the Middle East or India
so you know they are not going to take these holidays. The Jewish are more involved in financing and banking now.
Venkay applied using East's resume so for Venkat
Where in Michigan? North, south, east, or west? Other clues? nm
On the West Coast
I heard the term typing monkeys, too. Wouldn't surprise me if it were used all throughout the company, they had so little respect for us. I just thought it was an LA thing, but evidently not.
W. Coast is a lot of Asian. nm
Gulf Coast Transcription
I worked for them several years ago. Very small, friendly company and pay was always on time, but have not seen anything recently about them looking for transcriptionists. At the time I worked for them, the account that I was on was just going internet, but we still used a C-phone. Sorry I can't be of more help.
Gulf Coast Transcription

I have worked for GCT for 3 years!  We use SoftMed and Chartscript via the internet.  There is always plenty of work (two major hospitals and plenty of private groups/practices), and, if, for some reason, you run out, they are more than happy to assign more work to you.  Pay is bi-monthly (direct deposit) and on time!  Pay scale is comparable!  Owners are very friendly and down to earth, very willing to work with you!  Office staff is very friendly.  Editors/Trainers are very friendly.  This is a great company to work for.

Saw some gab a few days ago on GCS (poster was happy GCTer or something like that) and would like some info if anyone can help. 

When you say they have plenty of work, do you mind my asking how many lines you do per day/week? Also, what are they paying cpl? If you don't want to tell me exactly what they are paying you, would you just give me a range?

Also, do they work with you well when you want to take time off or need a sick day?

Thanks for the help!

I know Gulf Coast Transcription will consider it
Yeah Gulf Coast
I have been working for Gulf Coast since February.  I absolutely love this company!  Yes, all positions are IC, so of course no benefits.  However, I find the company to be so friendly and so helpful.  They bend backwards for you; whatever, you need the make sure you have it.  I am transcribing ER notes currently.  I would refer anyone to this company.  They are absolutely great!

Does anyone work for Gulf Coast Transcription out of Ft. Myers, Florida?  If so, what is their pay scale?
Is this ESL account on the west coast? nm
Hey girl, greetings from the northwest coast of Fla. sm
did you take that ASR test yet? I know Spheris has a few new accounts coming on board too but I don't think you'd want to go back to that. Cornerstone was not my cup of tea but loved TWS. If something isn't broke, don't fix it.
Gulf Coast Transcription
Found some good things in the archives, but no information recently... pros, cons, would like to apply to this company soon.  Thanks!
Gulf Coast Transcription
I just found out today that they offshore.  I didn't realize this.
Gulf Coast Transcription
Does anyone currently work for this company who could give some information?  Are they hiring now?  Thanks a lot.

I currently work for Gulf Coast
and absolutely love it!  I have been with them for a year and a half.  I believe they are trying to hire for nights and weekends, as we are needing the coverage for these shifts to meet our TAT.

Does this company have heavy ESL? Do you have plenty of work, what kinds of platforms do they have and is pay per line decent? Any info would help. I checked their website and there is not a whole lot of information.

Does anyone know if they offshore???  Just hired and wondering...
gulf coast transcription website says
that's almost scary in a too good to be true way.  Does anybody work for them? do they offer benefits? TIA
Gulf Coast Transcription info?
Oop!! Gab on GCT of course - not GCS!!!
Looking for information on Gulf Coast Transcription sm
I know all positions are IC.  Just looking for some information from someone working for them or who has worked for them..  Thanks.
Gulf Coast Transcription--any advice?
I submitted an application with Gulf Coast Transcription and was invited to test, which I did. However, that was over 2 weeks ago and I have not had any response. I sent a follow-up email approximately a week ago and still have not heard back. I am very interested in this company, as I have experience with ChartScript and prefer to work IC. However, I am wondering why I have not heard back from them. Even a reply letting me know they are not hiring right now or are not interested would be preferable to no reply at all. There was a telephone number included in the email they sent inviting me to test. I am thinking about calling but do not want to seem too pushy. If anybody has gone through their hiring process and has any insight, I sure would appreciate it. Also, if anyone has any particulars about the line rate, any incentives or shift differentials, etc., I would appreciate that, as well. Please feel free to email me. Thanks!
Gulf Coast Transcription of Florida, Inc
Website gctfl.com. Heard they were pretty good.
Anyone working for Gulf Coast Transcription of Florida?
Any and all info appreciated.  Thanks!
Any info on Gulf Coast Transcription in Florida?
Given job offer.  Must admit it is tempting to tell MQ where to put it, but I don't want to go from bad to worse.  Any feedback??
It is a West Coast account. Rather not mention names. nm

She and her husband run the account. 

sure sounds swell. Sounds like 2350 ln/day @ 4 cents/ln=$90./day
in order to figure how many line needs to be produced to make $500 per pay period. ie, how many lines an hour needed per 8 hour day --at your rate.

So say $450 a week would be $90 a day.
For example, if making 4 cents a line,need 2,250 lines a day, 281 an HOUR (to listen through and edit) to make this great wage of $90. a day FOR ALL THIS SAME SKILL, TO KEEP UPDATED WITH CHANGING MEDICAL COMMUNITY. nope Better at Jack-in-Box Pass it up.
Sounds like it and it sounds like you must tell them when they will be and no change them. Wonder
what you do when there is no work. Well, there will be a lot of problems with this whole plan if they dont get things straightened out with this no work situation.
Sounds like I'm the same age as you!
Sounds like she was trying to -sm
make you quit - probably because they overhired and have too many people. She probably thought she could bully you out the door and have one less person to have to deal with. I wonder if she treats others like that too.
I bet so. Sure sounds like them!!
Sounds like
SM - Sounds like you...

must know this owner pretty well to be bashing him this way.  How is it you have come to such an opinion?  Did you work in an office with him?  I would be very anxious to hear more of your scholarly declarations such as the answer to ending world hunger and obtaining world peace?  Please, tell us more oh "wise" one....

exactly what I was trying to say! It sounds like they sm
are on the right track! Good luck to them.
That sounds exactly like OSi.
sounds like mq
There is always someone telling everyone what excellent accounts they have, perfect sound, TONS of work....hmmmm....well, I guess it's nice that SOMEBODY is going to be able to pay the rent cause it sure ain't me.

Sounds about right, maybe even a little low. nm
Sounds low to me (sm)
I made $3.00 page several years ago.  With wages lowering each and every day for the MTs, maybe someone else would like to share their thoughts.  Good luck!
It sounds like they are not
very technical-savvy if they need MTs to come in for training! I'd be looking elsewhere.
