Is there anyone out there that is currently working for DIT, getting paid and on time?  I know that there were many, many posts here not long ago on how they had stiffed a few employees but was wondering if they had turned things around.

pay as usual!
Companies pay when hospitals pay welcome of the world of Mt!
just the usual with KS
It is nice to get an answer. It is nice that KS does not offshore. But what is not so nice is finding out that the person giving you the information may be misrepresenting themselves and may not actually be a recruiter for that company. So if this is the case, how can you know that they are not telling you lies about the company????
You mean, just BS as usual.
The usual gig.....
Poor work flow management. Zero communication. Don't want to hear your input on anything. Whether or not you have a good or bad experience there is pretty hit and miss I'd say depending on all the variables. Certainly not a well-thought-out equation by them.
As usual, another one who knows
nothing about the poster. How was I insulting and what makes you so sure I'm not an MT? This Army Brat obviously has some issues with her company and is very paranoid that her work is being directed away from her. Maybe she should talk to her supe and not assume things she doesn't know.
the posting is the exact same posting as you read on the
job seekers board. It is under state boards
Just the usual cowards who have nothing SM

better to do than rip other people apart so they don't have to acknowledge that they have their own deficiencies.  Instead of actually speaking to someone with their company and having them know what kind of people they have working for them, they come here anonny and post the same tired stuff all the time and talk about how great they are in comparison to other people they work with, how the company should value them, blah blah blah.

The loudest ones are usually the most lacking in skills.

Ok, so this is hopefully just worse than usual? sm
Do I have to let them know to hop on at other times, or is it understood that it's necessary?

thanks much for your help!!!
Yes, one to her, one to office as usual.
Thanks so much...As usual trying to do it the hard way
Yes, still here - Business as usual SM
No major changes since Acusis buyout. Same pay, same clients, same platform, matching 401K now in effect. No reason to *jump ship* that I can think of unless swimming is something you like to do for aerobic exercise.
Aside from the usual abrrv, try dividing SM
words in half.

hydronephrosis = hyne
scoliosis = scos
cholecystectomy = chec
aforementioned - afme

Or divide words together like
Babcock clamp = bacl

This is very easy, once you get the hang of it. Have fun!
excellent advice - as usual

She may not be lying - but it is not typical or usual. nm
OSI W2's late as usual this year?
Yes, mine was there are usual. TT is still the best IMHO.
Glad to be there. Glad to stay.
You're the only one giving anyone flack, as usual.
My usual VR fits mostly the same time frame
as yours although I have gotten 600+ before but never 800+ and I start usually at 12, started 15 minutes earlier and by 1 o'clock that is what I had. I keep my speed as fast as it will go also, you cannot make any money unless you are able to do that. I was surprised myself, first time for me and perhaps just a fluke but hey, I will take that.
No, just your usual hunt and peck for lines day. nm

Should add the usual disclaimer...No I am not mgmt - just another MT finishing her shift for the
night! I work out of Amherst as well, and the work is back-logged on many of our accounts.  Again, I don't understand those who claim no work.  We get daily emails listing loads of accounts, and nearly all of them are always full of work, if not out of TAT.  Dozens and dozens of clients listed I never even heard of! So, just seems a mystery to me how, or why, some MTs "claim" to always have no work.  Amherst sends mass mailings out 3 times a day, I believe, or at least 2 to ALL MTs - don't you read them? don't you get them? If you have no work, pick one of the dozens in the "red zone", and call your supervisor and ask to be put on a backlogged account. I have never been turned down a new account.  Learn it - get on it and make it yours! If its often backlogged, Bingo! Now you have a good busy account! 
It's not law, but it's usual general policy to avoid law suits. nm
Is it usual for company to assign specific jobs?
I'm just so frustrated right now.  I've had some jobs assigned to me that are from one of my backup accounts, not just one but many, and many ESLs, which has really brought my line count down.  I know I have to just deal with it, but I'm wondering if this is a normal occurrence.  I got hired under the idea that I was on a low ESL account, which my main account is, but not the backup accounts.  This doesn't happen all the time, but it is happening more frequently now.  Do I have a reason to be frustrated with this, or should I just get over it and accept it?
No we won't. I said slow, meaning slower than usual, should have clarified.
MDI-MD - What is the usual starting line rate? smsg

Upon receiving email from MDI, it states they offer a generous line rate?  Any input here?  I'm interested in the cpl rate.  Thanks for any info!

Just how are they to work for as far as accounts, ESLs, etc. The usual things such as how they treat
the MTs and so on.
Merit is what is screwed up. As usual. New managers couldn't care less.
My primary is even busier than usual and my back-up has been looking for extra help. Maybe time for
Where do you get a Lanier dictaphone and what is the usual charge for unlimited long distance. nm
I am new at TT and I just gotta say....
Thank Heaven! I finally found a place that has work! I have not even had to work on my secondary or tertiary accounts. Even with the holiday weekend, I still had more than enough work. It is a great place to work. I am so glad I found them. I barely made $600 a month at the last place I was at, I made that in a week at TT.
I gotta ask why?
I prefer multispecialty and I'm looking for a new job.  Is it because the acute care reports are generally longer, i.e. d/s and h&p's, etc? 
Ya gotta know this....
I just put People's Support Transcription in the search box. Did you know these posts show up on the web?
Take a look and you will see what I am talking about. Our posts are not exclusive to MT Stars web site! Just found out. Thought you would be interested.
yes, but they gotta be better than
TY so much; I gotta think about this one :)
Then I gotta say
you aren't very smart.  A 501(c)3 would allow you to get and accept donations to feed those critters whether you took a salary or not.  Animal (any kind) food isn't cheap and I know whereof I speak. 
Well, I gotta say

I'm no happier about these changes than anyone else.  I'm glad I never gave the extra help like so many others.  I basically worked my lines and that was it.  If I worked any extra it was because I wanted to, not because I felt I had to.  When I left the Q, I decided to never give myself like that again. 

I'm still here but I don't know for how long.  I've been looking at other positions and trying to get a plan B and C in place.  In addition to MTing, I'm also looking into a few office jobs that are going to be available soon in my area.  I hate the thought of going back to work in an office and finding childcare for my kids in the summer, but I will not take a paycut for Transcend or anyone else.  I also will not sit and wait for work.  I didn't do it for MDI or MQ and I won't do it for anyone else. 

I'm looking out for #1.  That's what the MTSOs do, so that's what I'm doing.  I don't really feel one way or the other about the merger.  I don't like the fact that I'm looking at starting a new job, but that's life.  It goes on with or without me and I prefer to be a part of it. 

I gotta try that!

I didn't even know gourds were edible.  We love eggplant parmesan which I make and freeze every year for ready-made dinners when I don't feel like cooking.

okay, whatever you say. Gotta go work!

Gotta say, though, it's more than what Softscript does!!!

Gotta Love OSi
I just have to brag up OSi.  Haven't read much good here...just thought I would let everyone know that they have given their benefit package a huge boost this week.  Full-time employees will now be receiving 5 cents extra per line on holidays and the PTO was just raised significantly also.  OSi IS a wonderful place to work!
I gotta line
sm - You gotta be kidding me
So I wonder what your turn over rate is for bringing on every and any MT who cheats per your standards...very low morals
Gotta new bulletin for ya
There is nothing 'petty' about these posts. And they aren't BS either. And you are prime example of MTSOs that don't, or won't, get it...

I used to be an MTSO so I'm well aware of both sides of the equation. The complaints here are legitimate - and the lurking MTSOs out there reading 'our' board would be wise to reflect on the message.

If you think for a New York second it's easy to be on our side of the street, think again. There is NO reason why these complaints should not be aired. IF they don't pertain to you, why are you so upset?

Something tells me he/she doth protest too much.
Gotta hand it to ya
just gotta put my 2 cents in . . . sm
I LOVED working for DSG, I agree with the poster who said about a year ago they went bad, actually they started earlier than that. But, my pay was NOT on time and was NOT correct and that is why I am no longer there. They messed up my direct deposit three times and expected me to wait for my paycheck. I asked them to overnight it and they were HIGHLY offended, did NOT want to go out of their way for it. Guess what happens when your direct deposit does not go in (without you knowing ahead of time), but all of your automatic payments go out????? What a mess. They are terribly rude, they micromanage, they get mad if you don't get your lines in (even when workload is low), but expect you to jump and type when the work does show up, no matter what time of day it is. What a joke. I LOVED them when I first worked there four years ago, AND, YES, when someone posted something negative, we did get a mass email asking us to defend our company. I remember it well and I was one of the first to do so. DSG is poorly, poorly managed. NOT a good place to work. How sad, too, I LOVED their platform, yes their dictators are quite bad, though. Okay, I'm done!!!
Did you say clinics? Then gotta be
gotta agree
I'm going through that right now. I've had two suspicious tests with companies. One was extremely hard and poor quality. I felt like they were putting that one out as a test just to help themselves figure it out. It makes it really tough for someone who really needs work. I just lost a 10 year cardiology account to India, and I'm wasting all this time on bogus testing or tests that are not geared to the specialty advertised. When I see a cardiology job, it would be nice to have a test specific to cardiology, not family practice, orthopaedics or surgery. Yes, I know how things cross specialty lines. Duh, most people seeing a cardiologist also have other problems the doc talks about. Also, I'm not a doctor, and some of these tests ask questions that I just frankly do not need to know, especially at the pay rate they're advertising.
7 cpl for an Exp MT. You gotta be kidding
7 cpl? I'm looking for PT to supplement my income, but I'm not THAT desperate.  How absolutely insulting... 
Gotta transition
It sounds like they are just setting up the transition to EMR. In theory there isn't much work that needs to be done except you don't have to print the reports and put them in a physical chart. This sounds like you are helping the company put all their old records into the EMR and get the new ones up and running...phrases like: cross training of new staff assigned and work with EMR implementation team with suggestions or changes; indicate you are helping them transition. It will be interesting to see how the MT job changes as EMR is more implemented - I'm scared as it is how VR is completely ruining the job!!
Gotta ask what is MTOB??? nm

gotta say, I never knew him, but Dr.
Reeves was our local version down in galveston county. I did work for a neurologist in the scurlock towers. I think these are both retired now. I have to admit, it does not take much to make a person feel good about themselves. We had a radiology group at 2 local hospitals and after my husband died, I stayed home for about 4-5 years before going to work at the OTHER facility. They apparently were having a lot of complaints, so much so that 3 months later I got flowers from my boss because it was the first time they had not killed her in staff meeting that month over their dictation. In fact, they paid her a compliment. But the main one was walking into radiology that first day to pick up slips (we were on a dictaphone loop then) and the radiologist looked up and said thank God. The poor pathologist there had to train every girl they had ever hired. This was a smaller facility and they were kicking the other facility's butt with patient loyalty. In fact, I am glad I worked there and got to experience the small town flavor of it. Company picnics brought out everybody and none of the spouses complained about having to go, we all enjoyed it. Oh, those were the days, my friend. The cardiologist from India was the one I referred to earlier and such a sweet man. I grabbed the stat tape off of Dictaphone and automatically hit rewind and erase, got most of it, but the last one I could not understand. Managed to grab him as he was walking out and explained I needed him to redictate the last report and when he asked if I had equipment problems, I just told, no sir, I can't like to you, I totally screwed up and he said don't worry, I will go do it now. These guys were real people, I don't know WHO these are people are, some kind of laminites out of new billfold pictures or something!
You gotta be kidding me!!
How unscrupulous can these companies get?  Yes, I have had no work available situations - then used up my PTO to get bills paid on time - then low work continued and lost my benefits with a company.  Never heard of the slowing down the server tactic but I would not put anything past some of these companies.  GREED by the MTSOs has turned being a loyal and conscientous MT and this profession into a disaster.
