staying open. All the accounts have been switched to Amherst, NY. Hard to know who to deal with since the office manager has not been replaced so not the best.

Any Warminster MTs have any thoughts on the email about getting switched to the NE region. Just
wonder what you think about the whole thing.
Warminster PA MQ office sm
Can anyone tell me anything about this office? I am still debating on whether to turn in paperwork or not.
What can you tell me about the Warminster MQ office?
The good, the bad, and the ugly are all appreciated. Thank you very much.

Warminster office is about ready to close its doors. Our accounts unfortunately went to Amherst. I
understand they are going to have a national system not regional where when there is a hospital that needs help people out of work get work in it. I would rather have a main account or a few I know so I am not sure about this new deal. Maybe they are going in with Spheris.
I'm Warminster - I guess I'm not sure what your question is.....are you talking about IMail?
Was told no - but I think it's really that the office people were told no so they don't all jump ship just yet!
Sorry, this is Warminster MQ I am speaking about.
Was Warminster, God knows who we work for now nm

They were pulled into Warminster and some may now be in New York.
So is Warminster. Pity some but not all there. They never worked for the MT at all.
Warminster closing probably end of year.
I am also from Warminster. Guess I know why we are all looking. Thanks for the info. Nice to know
what is going on in Warminster because no one there will tell you.
Unfortunately I have to agree about Warminster. I am not even sure it is stay open at this point in
time. It seems very uncertain the way things are going and I have also heard that the accounts will be going to New York Amherst.  
I also work for Warminster. Thinking of trying to transfer out. It is now the NE and yes multiple
accounts all the time. Warminster has always done this and I hear the same for the NE so may be time to look at other MQ offices.
Need opinions. I am part of the Northeast region of MQ or New York and we have been told that they

want to keep all the accounts so I assume that means all the NE Region within one hour of being out of work and out of work every night or caught up. Now I ask you where does this leave the MTs. I am speaking of acute care accounts with TAT of 12, 24 and 48 hours. Our offifce accounts are already complaining of poor quality work coming back to them because of just everyone being thrown into them to get the work done so I guess to accomplish this ridiculous obssessive 1 hour complete work situtation they will lose accounts and quite obviously MTs as running that close to complete in my option will run us continuously out of work into backups and of course then we are watched for how much of our work goes to QA etc. Does this seem like a no win situation. ASR has picked over all the accounts already also on DQS. I can see looking around very soon depending on how this situation plays out. Is this idea crazy or is it normal.



I guess this explains part of the reason we keep running out of work. My office lost a lot of huge
accounts in the past year.
When unsure.... sm
Whenever I test and am not sure about something like that I put a few asterisks at the end of the report and write a note explaining what I have done and the rationale. That way at least they know, if it's not the way they want it, that I gave it thought and did not just blatantly make a mistake. It always seems to work because I get positive responses back, that they appreciated my pointing this out to them -- never penalized for this.
Unsure this is about VTS or not..
Maybe someone else will speak up. I just wasn't aware of any companies starting witha a V until I saw these posts. http://forum.mtstars.com/company/v/1/76323.html
Nothing snitty or helium-ish, just saying that's what I do and unsure why others don't do it
that way. I mean, you DO see the words on your screen. So why look at them again? If I were typing from copy, I could see where you would have to proof. But when they are rolling off your fingertips as you are typing, why not proof then? Added my stats to show it can be done.
I concur. If the MR is not provided, and you are unsure you are
transcribing on the correct patient because patient's name/and or DOB were not given or prounced as you have searched, just bypass it. 
I have been contacted by a trainer in the US already. Still unsure about this.
They said they would overnight the pedal. Still unsure if I should change jobs. Yikes! If anybody could suggest a safer bet that would be appreciated too. Thanks for your feedback!
Unsure, need reality check

I don't know how I feel, I guess numb.  So, looking for feedback on how this job is going for me.  In the biz a long time:

1.  Got cleared from training quickly. 2.  Immediately got all the most difficult jobs, did not complain.  3.  Decided to stick it out day after day.  Though never ran out of work. No feedback.  No nothing.  Figured no news is good news.  4.  Still got the worst work. Noticed reports out of order during early shift. Obvious cherry picking going on by other team-members.  5.  Decided I must be wrong, my bad... later in day came on early, got good reports, did a few.  6.  Came back for shift was actually flagged to type all the worst dictators, as they are marked with red that they were assigned.  Started to get a bit paranoid.  7.  Came on today cherry picker gone, all bad work out of TAT, this MT the only one on, typed many reports.  Lots without dr. giving demos, etc. Did the best I could.  Flagged for QA the ones without demos (although taking a chance as a newbie, because QA blanks are counted against our progress).  Decided to still hang in there.Finally got feedback after several weeks from big boss stating this goes to the whole team: bad demos, bad quality, etc. We need to do better (written in stronger words).

Have strong feeling I want to quit after this bad e mail, and after all the bad reports and cherry picking going on. Still have other job.  Stomach is in a knot.  Is all this worth it? Feedback happily appreciated. 


Medware or MDI-FI. Considering applying. Unsure of best choice.
Can anyone give me insight about these companies.. pay, benefits, accounts etc..
Depends on the region I think
Former co-workers of mine still work for SPi and I'm not hearing really bad stories yet. I find myself wondering about the variety of experiences I'm hearing, wondering if it's due to the regional managers or what.

If you don't have a lot to risk, it might be worth a shot, but I'd have a backup plan in case they make you crazy.
Transcenders what region
You girls with no work, what regions do you work in?  I work on 2 different platforms, BeyondTxt being one and in both my regions work is plentiful.  I have 5 backup accounts in case things slow down but they haven't on my primary and they are always asking for help on my secondaries.  Not saying you aren't telling the truth, just wondering what region it is.  Do you do more than one worktype?  I know where are some girls in my region who only will do one worktype and won't try anything else.  That makes for a smaller paycheck, I'm thinking.  Just curious so don't flame me.
never heard of the Mountain Region....
maybe the Denver region? If that's it, I have no experience with them.
Pronounciation depends on what region
of the country you are in a lot of the time. I am from the south. Our doctors pronounce syncope as syn-co-pe - Up north they say syn-cope. Just 1 example.
Any info on MD-IT Dallas Region?

Hands-On Transcription does the same thing but unsure if they are good or bad...sounds bad though
I was inquring about a job with Hands-On Transcription company.  They did not have any website or physical address.  They had just posted on here.  I had emailed the lady several times.  She told me I could purchase a C-phone from her for 399.00, which I do not have any familiarity with a C-phone (never had to use them in my career as of yet).  Plus before she sent me the paperwork she wanted my name, phone, address, and SS#..I sent that, out of hesitation, and she has never sent paperwork back.  Though she did email me about something else.  I am scared now that maybe I should not have given her the information since I could not find anything on the company.  So, please be careful.  I should have went with my gut instincts....
North region here and tons of work....nm
Yes, I am talking about the fact that our accounts are being transferred to the NE Region. Are you
not aware of that. It is happening on Monday morning.
Anyone else finding their work drying up in the NE region. Are you sticking around or moving out. I
am not sure what to do yet.
The main office was in Bolingbrook but they built an office in Yorkville last fall. SM
I think that the owners live in Yorkville, so it was built close to their house. Nice office, just pretty far out.
Just curious, is the MQ Nashville office the old Lanier office? nm
I don't work in the office and never claimed to. I am just saying that since the new office open
October with everyone of the admin staff in one place, these problems do not occur any more.
Can't get paid in the office if you don't work in the office.
JLG has MT's working at home, not in the office, not to mention working out of state.  The mail is the only way to get paid since they have temporarily suspended direct deposit.  The only ones getting paid on time are the ones that do work in the office, like the management and people answering the phone. 
Closed FW office, Indianapolis office too. nm
OH - I thought part transcription, part escription, but don't know for sure
How does MD-IT work...do you work for the region in which you live?
If I live in the MidWest Region do I work for the Midwest Office in Mpls/St. Paul? Seems like the benefits are great. Anyone currently work for MD-IT and could tell me a bit about the company! Appreciate it!
They no longer hire part-time and may be eliminating part-time employees within the next 6 months.
They are going to have those that are PT go FT if possible. Some accounts require 1 weekend day, but not all. Most transcriptionists have 1 account with 1 back-up account. I know that they are hiring for hospital accounts in medical records and radiology right now.
No PTO for part-time. Not sure if you can work part-time or not since recent rule change. sm
You do pay a deposit for their equipment.
There is a part-time and a flexible part-time, just left there and they offered
me both. Flexible, however, is more or less when they need you (I.e. weekends), part-time is fixed hours.
Yes I know they hire part time because I referred someone there for part time.
They are internet based.
From what I understand, the part-time positions will be only be for those that are already part-time
It is not a restructuring of the company, just of some of the existing part-time positions.

I know that there are a few employees who have been with Keystrokes for many, many years who are part-time and they will not displaced.

Other than that, there have been many discussions why there will not be any new part-time employees hired, and I really don't think they will back down on that.
Which office?
been through three office changes in the last 10

Went from 7 cents a line to now 9.5 cpl, on this current account going on three years, the one before that, five years, and the one before that two.  My opinion, i'm a good MT and they treat me as such.  Do you work your schedule?  Do you do PLUS lines while maintaining quality?  Are you up their butt constantly asking for raises?  Take tons of time off?  They are weeding out the awful MTs by starving them of work!!! 

Which office is this.
Are you an MT in the office currently
I do not know which office you are from; if you are hearing rumblings,it is probably true. Many offices are closing and I do not know why. I was told my office was closing because there was no need for it?? It closed this September. Is your office being transferred to another region?

I am sure you will keep your position but at what cost I do not know. I am still waiting for the PACKET to come and I am nervous about that myself.

You are not alone. We are all feeling this re-structuring and in my opinion things do not look good.

Try not to let it get to you too much. MQ is not worth it.
I have been upset for 3 months now and will be making a big decision on what to do in the next few weeks.

Hope things work out for you.
what office are you with? nm
I sent one to the office, too. nm
TT office help
I have had plenty of work too. I guess it depends what accounts you are on. As far as office help, I always get a prompt response to any question or need I have. Why would it matter how much office work they have?
