sorry you had the same experience with another company. It stinks when you are told you have failed a test but aren't given any further details.

I'm not sure how it accrues, but doesn't start
until after 90 days and equals 10 days/year up to 5 years and then goes up after that. I'm a new hire myself and I may not have that 100% correct, but pretty close. There are 6 paid holidays, as someone else already stated. Much better than most companies.
They also have incentive tiers, so if you are a high producer you can really make some $$.
This is a person trying to start a business, doesn't
sound like she has any firm accounts yet and the work will be sporadic at best. If you need to make a living doesn't sound like this is a good choice.
Previous ad on the other job board says they start you off at 8 cpl. Current ad doesn't say. nm
Anyone else new with MedWare still waiting on your first check? DD doesn't start until
So start your own company. That's what they did. nm
would that company start with a "T" and
end in a d? If so, I know all too well! It makes me sick. I've been doing this for 11 years and it really is getting worse and worse for MTs. They are pretty manipulative in making us think we will make more. We're not that stupid, though, to believe them. Aren't there any companies who just stick to using human MTs instead of these ignorant VR systems? If so, tell me who, please - I'm ready to throw in the towel with the company I'm at now.
No, the company do not start with an M
Does this company name start with A? nm
Does that company start with a
Does the name of this company start
with an M?
Does the company name start with a T??
I have been there and done that!!
What company is this? Maybe I should start looking
Just curious. Does your new company start with a P? nm
Yes, I'd have a backup job..Also, does this company start with a C?? Thanks NM
It is a good company, how many others start - sm
you higher than 0.08 a line anymore? Very few and far between. They don't make a fortune off of you, they are not getting .20 a line and you .08, nothing like that. I have been working there for a year now, and yes some days I only make $50, others $80-$100, just depends on how much I chose to work. Have plenty of work, too much actually right now, all my accts have gone crazy lately it seems. But if any one sees this and has questions just let me know.
I start tomorrow with a small company exactly as you
Hope it works out but I've had good success in the past from companies who don't advertise.
Company start with an "E"..give us a hint. If they are doing it to someone else too, then I
Throwing in the towel is one way of putting it. I've done this routine too many times.
optimal - start-up flip company
Optimal readings is a start-up flip company. The CEO has been involved with numerous flips with other companies he's helped start. They are backed by investors with deep pockets, which it needs for the acquisitions they conducted last year and going forward. Because of these acquisitions, they've gone from a start-up in late 2006 to the No. 4 Teleradiology service provider in the nation. They've positioned themselves in an attractive position for one of the top 3 to buy them out. The major draw back of this company is the fact that their overhead is very high (radiologists aren't cheap, up to $350/hr) and they've resolved to billing insurance and individuals instead of billing the hospitals directly. Collections of this nature are in the 30%-40% range. While they use Billed revenue to make themeselves look attractive, their actual 'collected' revenue is significantly lower. Any company that buys Optimal Readings (which may be going under a different name now after their Dec. 6th 2007 acquisition), will be buying a money pit and will likely just liquidate their assets and adapt their clients into their system.

I also could have written your post.. Does your company start with a .....
T...??? It just sounds way too familiar and I have cut back on working for them because I'm sick of getting the garage that they won't send to the Indians
Well that doesn't say much about the company
You've been there 4 months and have 5 accounts already????? That tells people that they run out of work consistently otherwise you would be working on 1 account and have a backup, maybe 2. I've been there years and didn't even get my secondary account for almost 6 months because the work was so heavy on my primary account. Things have changed. The turnaround is so great they have to continually overhire. The only thing I have to say is think about why you were hired at 10 cpl. You're training the VR that is going to be cutting that 10 cpl to 5.5 cpl. If you're happy earning 5.5 cpl doing FULL editing that's great. Maybe you weren't there when the CEO was saying that the people who do really well on editing are not high producers in typing and vice versa. Those who have a hard time doubling their lines in editing are the ones producing 350-400 lines an hour in typing. There's no way they can make 700 lines per hour doing FULL editing. So if you're doing great in editing, you're not that great in typing...you're average. If you're a high producer in typing, let's see how happy you'll be when making 5.5 cpl for producing the same amount of work.
This company doesn't try either
They have not responded to their employees directly ... instead they put their comments anonymously on this board.
Best pay, doesn't always mean the best company. sm
You could make $0.18 cpl doing ESLs all day long and run out of work. That being said, how much would you make really if you can't do ESLs or there is no work available.
Everyone is looking for something different in a company. My suggestion is to write down what it is you are looking for, line rate, steady work flow, schedule, pay periods, etc and seek it out.
Good luck to you.
A company that doesn't ...sm
test? CMT, 16 years experience including transcriptionist, QA, supervisor/trainer. Tired of all the companies that use mttest before they will even talk to you which takes up my time - only to find they don't pay very well! Are there any companies that wave the testing if you have the experience and great references?
Just because one company does it doesn't
mean they all do. I worked for KS and I know that the work fluctuated and there were days without work. It still reflects very poorly on you to say such a thing. I don't know whether it is true or not, but without knowing every detail from both sides you aren't qualified to suggest that something she has done has caused her a lack of work.
another company doesn't pay
CC Transcription, out of Florida. First, when it is time to pay, she says O sorry, it will be 4 weeks before first check. (I quit right then but another girl did not) So, okay it 4 weeks and time to pay and she says, So sorry, my computer crashed and all the information to do direct deposits is in there, I will have to mail you a check. Well okay, so mail the darned thing. WOW! It came a week later and guess WHAT????? IT BOUNCED LIKE A A BASKETBALL OFF THE 95TH FLOOR! But, here's the best one.....now her appendix ruptured and she has been in the hospital! I must be nuts because I and positive she was not in the hospital when she wrote those checks. Is there some new thing about checks not being good for 2 weeks to wait and see if your going to get sick first? Is that a bank insurance thing I can take out? hhhmmm
She advertises here on mtstars and also on mtjobs, so BEWARE of this lady, it is also Joyce Transcription! She didn't get me NEAR as bad as the other gal, and we are the only to who communicate, so how many more are out there????
you must have mistaken this for another company; benefits start in 30 days
This person obviously has no clue
Don'r forget, when you first start direct deposit with any company sm
sometimes you get a paper check the first pay period.
I don't see ANY MT company names on this list!! Everybody PLEASE start e-mailing.
Would think whatever is FT production for that company. PT doesn't
That doesn't mean I have to work for a company
who chooses to send things out of country. I feel no need to suck it up and take it.
MBS a company that doesn't care about their MTs
This company doesn't care about their MTs and the owner or the president is very proud to post her picture in her company's website. Check the link and beware of this very deceptive company. I don't want to waste my time running after them, just want to caution all the MTs out there who are trying to earn a living, they might commit a mistake dealing with this company.
If a company doesn't pay, is there anything one can do to collect?
It doesn't matter. IF the company wants
people on site to train, that is their right to insist. There is a MTSO that has been mentioend on here, don't remember the name, that requires new employees to come to them for training.
Does your company start with a T... If so, I feel your pain and it does no good to complain. No one
cares. Tell me how you go from over 200 jobs in a queue to nothing in a few hours. Hmmmm. I smell offsourcing. Not happy. I just got a second job and thank goodness. It will save me when there is no work which is too often for my liking.
I'm looking for a company that doesn't require a schedule......
I know - does that even exist anymore? I currently work when I want, just comitting to certain number of lines in a pay period. Are there any companies that allow us to do that anymore? I'm thinking it's time for a change.
Isn't Cymed a company that also doesn't pay for spaces? nm
Work for a company that doesn't offshore
My company doesn't evade tax laws. They don't have
state tax. I didn't have a question and my DH and I have a very solid marriage and aren't going to split. You sound bitter.
I used to work for a company that offshores -doesn't mean I do now (sm)
Do I sense some some sour grapes here?
My company doesn't pay for ANY holdays if you don't work
My company doesn't even have a list of what they expect
What drives me nuts is a company that doesn't even have a list of what they expect and with 8 different QA people going over the report, it's just the luck of the draw. I have had two of the same operative reports by the same dictator who uses basically the same language. Easy to type, right. Change a word here or there and send it. Had two different QA people. One report was 100%, the other 89%. One changed all the punctuation, the other didn't change a thing. One didn't like where I set up paragraphs. One gave errors because what I thought was um QA took as a and gave me an error for omitting “a” from the sentence when the dictator never dictates a complete sentence in the first place. We are told to type verbatim. So what is the difference between “Patient received bolus of” and “Patient received “a” bolus of” Of course management sides with QA so no way to complain. If they were consistent, there would be less people dreading QA and it would truly be a teaching tool, not a power play by QA to show us lowly MTs that they are better than we are and justify their own jobs.
Clever way to give-up a company name that doesn't
Have 4 accounts and no work. SR doesn't pay enough. Like the company, but..
Is there any company that doesn't have high ESL now days? nm
That doesn't mean it's not a problem account for the company (sm)
It's sometimes in the company's best interests to let an account go if they're too demanding or whatever. Hardly reason to start a panic like they're losing accounts.
This good Christian company doesn't pay their MTs. nm
Gosh..does this company start with an F. In any event, you need to double check with your insurance
provider to see the exact date the policy was cancelled. Sometimes, companies have to pay preminums ahead of time. I would just make sure and if they are still taking the money out, you need to send a certified letter telling them to return your money at the point you were paid up and the policy cancelled or reinstate the insurance. Why pay for something your not getting.
What company offers this? Doesn't sound famililar. nm
Jeannal, here is some advice - it doesn't matter which company
you go with if they have good insurance. If you are basically looking for great insurance, then go with the company that has the best insurance for you. Bottom line. It doesn't matter what kind of work you get, what kind of jobs you get, as long as you make the minimum line count and you are only concerned about insurance, then go with that company that offers the best. It might not be Diskriter, it might not be Spheris, it might not be Medquist - or on the other hand, it might be all three. It's up to you - if insurance is a big issue and work is not, then go with the company that offers good insurance only. The rest will fall into place
Work for a company that doesn't offshore. Support US MTs.
In case this company doesn't see this post, email them and tell them
