I believe there were posts in the past. (sm)
Check the archives. As I recall, it wasn't good!
Maybe these past posts will help --
I don't work for them but I was thinking about it and I remembered there was a lot of chatter about them within the last couple of months so I did a search of the MTStars Company Board cause I thought I remembered something that might be helpful to you. Until you get updated info from current or past employees maybe this will help.
Medical Axolotl [2007-08-25]
Med - employee $100/mo., employee +1 $200/mo., employee + kids $200/mo.and employee + family $300/mo.
Axolotl expects quality and reliable MTs. Due to the fact, they do not overstaff, it is IMPERATIVE, everyone be there for their scheduled shifts. They provide OUTSTANDING and affordable benefits, as well as more than competitive pay. If you meet the above standards as an MT, then you should apply. If you don't meet these standards, then you need to find a company who doesn't expect you to produce quality documents and to show up for your shift. I have been an MT for 13 years. Axolotl is better than any company I have ever researched or any employerI have worked for. If you are looking for former employees who did not meet the above standards, I am sure you can find them.
Good luck in whatever you decide.
There have been several posts about them the past
couple of weeks.
I have seen several posts over the past
few months (possibly by the same person) who talks about how great they pay. Someone posted the past week that they offered 8 cpl. That is not great pay by any stretch, especially with some of the crappy accounts they have.
Do we have to go through THIS again?? Read past posts! .....nm
There have been some negative posts about them in the past. nm
Please, please, please....read past posts.
They should give you enough warning.
You may want to search for past posts (sm)
This has been discussed frequently in the past. I do not personally do this type of transcription, but I have seen posts generally anywhere from 3.5 to 4.5 CPL. I am assuming that 5 cpl is a little above average. There are also others, I'm sure, who are making more. But definitely search for past posts, I think you will find more info there.
There have been lots of posts in the past. Rather
than restate my experience if you will open your post and at the bottom click on related messages and you'll find lots of information.
Posts about them almost daily. Read through past
posts. They offshore. Communication horrible.
Past posts have them paying only 7 and 7.5 cpl, even for experience. What about
I am interested to know what your QA posts were in the past. Can you elaborate? nm
Past posts said they involved the owner. nm
In Jan. 07 they offered 7 cpl as IC and you had to BUY their software. Past posts
I have been there awhile. The good posts are because over the past few years sm
they have really worked hard to improve employee relationships and it has worked. There are no problems there anymore. They used to say they were growing pains and we all wondered how long they could say that. Now I am glad I stuck it out because all the old problems (and I mean old being over 2 years or more) are gone. Great company to work for.
They last had an ad here in 6/2006, FT only, using Weblinc software. Past posts said
Past posts have been positive. They pay by the keystroke. Used to be all Cphone accts, think
Good & bad posts in the past. Must work 1 Sat. a month. Supposed to be gross line pay. Some days
If you'll read through past posts you'll find lots of
recent info. Why do you need menitoring if you already work as an MT. Unless you do clinic work most companies will require you to work at least one weekend day, at least initially.
What world is that? Wally World?
Posts from April said everyone gets 8.5 cpl/newbie or experienced. Recent posts said
A few posts about them about 3/4 of the way down this page between the DSG & Diskriter posts. nm
Nice platform, very simple does not have a lot of bells and whisles, but it is a nice typing platform and it interfaces with MS Word. On some you cannot get your line count, that was the only issue I had with it when I worked on it.
What in the world did they want to know?
USA is not same as MT-World
MT-World is now ATSI - American Transcription Solutions. Good company, but a lot of turnover in the office. Lots of work right now.
why in the world
I agree! I think the same thing has happened to me at MQ. I'm still waiting to hear back from them after training. :(
Any info on MT-World in Clearwater? Have a pending offer in radiology.
I've been working for them for about a month now so I don't know how much help I can be, but everyone there has been very helpful. Any time I have a question, there is always someone I can ask. Get paid every 2 weeks and so far have been on time.
How in the world would you know??
I thought people could post anonymously. BTW first time I have posted anything about TT in a long time. Im just watching these days. Pretty interesting I must say.
What in the world is going on at OSI?
Seems to be big changes going on.
Why in the world sm
did they buy an MT school? I have my thoughts about that. Mostly that they are trying to get rid of the older (higher paid) transcriptionists.
Whether it is a true town hall meeting, and we get to speak, is yet to be seen. In the past they told us to mute ourselves, and they just said what they said.
I think it's becoming a dog-eat-dog world out there
When I first started in this business and on this board, there was never a bad post. Everyone helped everyone with questions, etc.
Lately, with the economy and the world the way it is, plus the fact that MTs don't get recognition for their GOOD work and, of course, let's not forget the crappy pay, there are a lot of unhappy people out there.
I read an article in the newspaper today that stated in a capitalist nation, greed is good if it serves a purpose; i.e., jobs and prosperity; but if greed gets out of control; i.e., bonuses for the upper echelon and nothing for the true workers, then the role of capitalism is in the toilet. This is what is happening in our nation today and everyone is either worried about their job or trying to stay afloat with all the negativity in the job market and so, the nastiness prevails and turns into the dog-eat-dog world we all fought against a few years ago.
Things will turn around again, but it will take years of trial and error now. Whether it will be good or bad will depend on the attitude of the people and government.
I don't mean to turn this into a political post but I, myself, have been biting my tongue towards some posters and just trying to live my life the best I can. With DH only working 80 days this year and not able to collect unemployment, I am the total breadwinner, so it makes me a little sarcastic and/or mean, but not enough to post nasty messages....YET.
You have to let the negativity go in one ear and out the other and move on.
How in the WORLD do they keep.MTs? sm
Oh, i know how...they get paid well by their clients and they pay their MTs 6 cpl........
What in the world?
Ok, I am cracking up right now. You seriously have some problems. No, I am not the woman who lost her marriage. I am still married and wouldn't lose my marriage over a job. This is hilarious and thanks for the laugh. Like I said, go get some comfort food and calm the heck down. You are totally losing your mind. Here is you ------> Here is me ----->
Why in the world would anyone
NOT give the best they can? That is owed to any employer by any worker. Second-best doesn't cut it in this job.
What in the world?
MTs have become a total joke. What happened to this profession? I am so embarrassed to be part of this industry. Some of you are visualizing managers as drinking brandy and smoking cigars? Are you imagining them yelling 'let them eat cake too?' I wish I could tell you how I visualize most work at home MTs, but it might be a little too harsh for such a nice place as this.
What in the world????
Why on earth would an MTSO who KNOWS they are treating their MTs well and with respect, have any desire to come and visist this or any other board??? Only one way that my poor humble mind can see and that is because they KNOW they are not treating them well much less with respect and so they MIGHT feel the need to assess how angry their MTs are so they can plan damage control. I'm sure there are good SMALL MTSOs out there who do treat their employees well but I think they are fewer by the day.
One would think this board is for MTs to share their various experiences and those who are happy should thank God that they have it so good and those who are hurting, well it says a lot about the people who would put them down and pour salt in their wounds. There but for the grade of God goes you.
Best Company in the MT World
Stat-Med in Missouri - Pay is excellent, always, always on time. Owner is the best person to work for and I absolutely love it.
Greenlight - Pay is absolutely great. Owner is SUPER and again love working for them.
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE BEING A MT....
MT-World, any info
Any info on MT-World, good or bad??? Thanks!
Post about mt world
There was a post last evening about MT World being a scam, a couple people asked for an explanation and now the post is gone - why was it deleted? If this place is not legitimate we should know because American Transcription Solutions is advertising and they are part of MT World.
I do anything and everything. Why in the world are they hiring???
I did not like MT World either and I hated being on IM all day. nm
Its really World War III here, War of the outsourced
Go get those scammers.
ATSI, formerly MT-World?
Lots of work right now. Pretty good accounts, not a lot of ESLs. Direct deposit every 2 weeks. Good work platform. Some benefits.
Why in the world do companies -sm
Keep on hiring MTs when there isn't enough work for the ones they already have? I am disappointed to learn that a company I tested for, and accepted a position with, apparently does not have enough work to go around. I used to love medical transcription. Now I'm just downright discouraged and depressed.
What a world this would be if no one had to work on
weekends. Every store, every restaurant, every gas station, would be closed. What would you do on your days off? Of course, all patients would just lay in their beds in the hospital, have family bring food in, etc., because no nurse, no dietary department, no ancillary services would be open. And if you had an emergency, of course it would wait until Monday to be resolved.
Too many of those who do not want to work weekends do not remember the days that all banks were open M-F, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. except Friday when they were open until 6 p.m. No one worked at home. If you had to take care of any personal business, you had to take vacation time from your job to do that, including go to a bank. No servicemen made calls on weekends, either, so if you needed a phone installed (before the days of the plug-in lines), you had to take an entire day off to wait from the service person to show up, and prayed that they did so you did not lose another day's vacation while waiting.
We were happy to work weekends then because we did not burn up all our leave time for taking care of everyday business.
I'll work weekends any time you want me to.
Welcome to the real world. Try getting your
see how it works. I have a surgery center account that I bill once a month, on the last day of the month. And they have 30 days to pay. So work I do on January 1st, I might not get paid for till the end of February.
What in the world does "whitebread" mean?
Perfect MT world
In the perfect MT world, what you say would be so true. But you know how doctors are. In the perfect MT world, every doctor would dictate that day's patients, that afternoon. The perfect MT world would not be feast or famine. But come on, we know all too well about the doctor's who only dictate once every couple of days, doing 2-4 days worth of patients in one day. It would hurt to pay an employee to sit jobless for a couple of days only to have to pay overtime when they were then swamped and playing catch-up. For the IC, she still gets no pay for that day but when she does end up doing the work, she gets paid for the work she does.
In the perfect MT world, there would be no fluctuation of jobs. Through no fault of the MTSO, doctors leave facilities, new doctors come to facilities. Sometimes, through no fault of the MTSO, whole facilities leave. Then the MTSO finds herself with several ICs and no work for them. On the other hand, she may get an unexpected bonanza and have a facility hire on with many thousands of lines a month and she finds herself scrambling for qualified MTs.
I am sure every MTSO would LOOOVE to say I am always going to have X lines available to X MTs every day. Unfortunately, she has no control over that aspect of the business.
You will not believe this but I am not an MTSO (but I do play one on TV, lol j/k). I have, however, been spending way too much time lately thinking about this industry and how the changes that are happening now are affecting my paycheck. I am also related to a couple of people in management, so I am aware of both sides of the picture.
I have heard of World Wide in NJ, but not in NY. If it is the same company, they now also call themselves Metro. If this is the same company, I don't how much work they have right now, but I do know they are nice to work for, nice people, office manager is very nice.
I honestly had the best job in the world one day and no job the next sm
and I found out I had no job via a non-personalized group form email saying Medware is reorganizing, if you have received this email we have eliminated your position, effective 2 days from now, please feel free to call us if you have any questions
like I said, sad
