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.

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.
That sounds about right for East Coast!
So, now you see that the MTSOs don't really make that much off of us!!!!  Maybe we should thank our lucky stars!! 
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? 
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.
Well, they have not done so for a year, and advertised that they did not. sm
But I did anticipate that less than compassionate response, so thanks for not disappointing me.  I realize I was nave to believe any company nowadays, but I did.  Chalk another one up for them versus me.  My outrage is not at the outsourcing so much as the deceipt.  And yes, I am angry at myself for being so stupid as to feel loyalty and work my head off for a company who feels nothing for me and has no problem lying to me while I'm trying to feed my family.
They advertised several months ago
It was definitely a scam (as reported here on MT stars). I looked into it myself, as far as looking for a web site, etc. I believe someone reported here that they had contacted someone (possibly from the web site) and were told that it was a scam. Sorry I don't remember more details, but it definitely is one of those 'seems to good to be true, is too good to be true' situations.

Maybe try clicking on the 'See Related Messages' at the bottom of your post and will come up with the previous discussion, I think it was in the last couple of months of 2008.
Well we do want the jobs advertised.

I have seen MTs post they will never accept 8 or 9 cpl either, but I don't really see any complaints about those ads all over the company board. 

I think we ought to let the companies post jobs here no matter what. 

I think we can find better things to discuss anyhow. Just giggle to yourself and scroll past it and look for what entices you.  I'd rather have the companies post though without a thread on the company board just because someone doesn't agree with the pay so I agree with these threads being moderated and deleted if necessary.   

Does anyone know about the position advertised with Axolotl? sm

I got an email which said something like it was heavy ESL. I have heard good things about the company in the past, so I was considering it, but it depends upon the type of ESL. I seem to have the most trouble with ***Asians***, for some reason. And of course if they talk at the speed of light, I have trouble with any dictator.

I would appreciate any info anyone has -- what type of platform, decent pay, etc.


oops.. she advertised on another site

It was the same exact ad:

Deborah Levinson

If it's the one that advertised here in Dec. w/the surgery acct., she's not hiring right now.
I agree with ChiaPet- I work for a big National that advertised
Sun-Thursday or Tuesday through Saturday. I told them I would prefer M-F, because Saturday and Sundays are my time. They found an account that accommodated my wishes. I also might add that it is day shift. You have the choice. Yes, they would prefer everyone work that shift, but I promise you there are enough of us that those that love weekend work can do the weekend work, and those that like our weekends can have our weekends off.
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. 

Gulf Coast Transcription

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.
Gulf Coast Transcription
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!

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.
