I can speak for AccuSTAT Wisconsin. It's not affiliated to any other AccuSTAT.
I've been with AccuSTAT Wisconsin now for 9 years and I wouldn't work anywhere else. The work is acute care (basic 4), mostly ops and ER work. The work is done thru C-phone or VXP software.

if you had to pick one; medscribe or CyMed .. who and why would you pick em? considering both
Take your pick..lol.
I was wondering, was Proscript the place that did not pay for macros? There was 1 company I worked for that had loads of macros but you did not get paid for them.
And they pick up dog-poo, too.

Can you pick up?
I am still in the hiring process but very hopeful. I live within 3 miles of the JLG office, does anyone know if they allow employees to pick up their checks from the office? This would not be a deal breaker for me because I would just be grateful to work for them, but it is a concern nonetheless especially because I bank out of state.
You cannot pick and choose
I don't know how you think you can pick and choose. You get the jobs assigned to you by the queue managers. You cannot even see what jobs are available.

SS has been a terrific company for me. I too stick to schedule but at times have to flex because of kids, etc. and they do not have a problem with that from time to time.

you can pick from 3 different shifts
10-6, 11-7 or 12-8 and I believe you have to work Tues-Sat or Sun-Thurs. You type and get paid hourly, but you have to do a minimum of 1000 lines a day. That's about it in a nutshell.
They paid to have UPS come pick up
the equipment, but they ignored numerous emails from me and I then got a threatening letter about suing me for not returning their equipment. There was a delay in the final pay. No exit interview. I was civilized, however, A was not.
This is why MTs "cherry-pick"! nm
the one I was on, you had to pick from the unassigned ones
What do you mean by pick from the unassigned ones? nm
KS does not pick the platforms...
that the facilities they contract with use. Those platforms and their requirements, like ULLD, are almost always in place when KS contracts with them. I hear MTs get upset about C-phones and why any MTSO would use them but the MTSO is going with what the facility wants/has been using. These platforms are network-wide for some very large health networks sometimes, and they can be reluctant to pull the plug on one that has served them well for sometimes a very long time...not to mention the costs involved.

to your heart's content, if that's your choice and you are fortunate enough to get the kind of Lead job where you have control of work flow & distribution, as they do in my company.  As bad as the Q may have been in some important areas, I always got my lines.  Work was allowed to self-distribute naturally ...THE NEXT FREE MT GOT THE NEXT AVAILABLE JOB.  We had 1 supervisor, not 2 dozen people we had to answer to, as today's top-heavys. 

But as long as the same person who assigns/distributes the work (Leads) also types on the accounts & has FIRST CHOICE of jobs -- well, where does leave the rest of us??  With 101% $---t, that's what!  That and being salaried, too!  I'd be a Lead for HALF of the little they're paying us now and I bet I'd get more done if the playing field between Leads and peon MTs were evened out a little.

so pick up your own accounts, get 5 sm
people and see how well you do. The headache of listening to whining, complaining MTs is not worth it! Granted there are MTSOs making tons of money and yes some are scr****g their employees/ICs. But, if you think running a business and putting up with all of it is a piece of cake, you are sadly mistaken!
If you pick one up and notice it's VR, is it

Hopefully the speed will pick-up
a part-time job to cover that lull.  Crying here and not to be unkind is really not going to help your situation.  We can give you a big ole awwwww, but that's not going to help.  Get a part-time job.
Accustat, WI
Just wanted general info on Accustat, WI. 
Hey there...do not worry about AccuStat not paying.....I can tell you that me and MANY of my coworkers love that company....they are great to work with....honestly!!!  Do not believe all you hear.
They are just very friendly, personable and supportive when you need anything!

They pay on time, every time!

I have worked on a couple of platforms, and I am not fond of VR, but I only worked on that a few months.
which Accustat

Thank you very much for responding!

Does anyone currently work for AccuSTAT WI?  Familiar with mentoring program?  How long does the program usually last?  

Accustat WI - sm
Nice people, start almost right away, not hard dictators, Word platform.
AccuStat??? sm
Has anyone applied at AccuStat and received the test?  I think 30 minutes of dictation is kind of a long test to take.  Is there anyone else who feels the same?  Does anyone have information on this company in regards to timely pay?  I would not want to take what could turn into a 3-hour test if they are not a good company.    TIA for any info...    
Pay from AccuStat
Pay is good from them.  They do not test so the pay is lower to start but stick with them and it comes up...fast!!
Which Accustat - a few of them out there. nm
Accustat in WI?
What I've seen in the archives sounds pretty good, but it's all pretty vague so looking for a little more.
Accustat EMR
Can anyone tell me how it is to work for Accustat EMR as IC?
Is this the accustat out of WI?

Accustat EMR
No, they are in SC!
MT-head. Thanks for that info.
You all need to pick up some Feen-A-Mint
you definitely wanna pick TransHealth
constant workflow. Good accounts. Good pay. GOOD PEOPLE.
....pick up the slack and keep TAT in check! nm
Pick up the phone and call
Yes it will be a threat. It will just pick up these sounds of
chewing and make words out of them. Yep.
If you could pick between OSi and TransTech, which would you choose? nm
Decision made on who to pick!
After reading all the feedback, I decided to go with Keystrokes.  MQ just seems to iffy with work compared to Keystrokes, who certainly has some good feedback from fellow MTs. 
If your question is can you cherry pick
Your queue is preset for your work types and they come in according to TAT. You can't pick and choose what you want to type. That is established beforehand.
So do they cherry pick at Transtech?
Inviting new members, maybe it will pick up
Everybody is scrambling for lines because its slim pickings now, afraid to spend time in the group for fear of losing a job to type. JMO.
When will work pick back up? nm
Which would you pick. Just wanting advice, and different

points of view:

FutureNet, E-Transplus, or MDI.

Perhaps a combination of 2 of the above? Any advice welcome. Having to decide. Thanks in advance.


DON'T pick Superior Global...
Superior Global has bad uneducated QAs, bad team leaders, horrible!  They had one great team leader (started with a J), but she resigned and it has gone downhill ever since.  They offer incentives once in awhile and then forget they offered them.  No bonuses for anything.  Just poorly ran.  On the plus side if you aren't meeting production, they don't really care, very disorganized and they can't remember any schedules so it can be pretty flexible.  They also don't have direct deposit, so you have to wait for your paper check.
I pick and choose what I take from this board

I first started coming here about 6 years ago when I started going to school for MT.  The posts almost made me give up before I had even finished.  I was sure I would never find a job and that I made a horrid mistake, but because I had already paid for the classes I decided to continue, and found a job 2 months before I ever graduated.  I have been working for 5 years now, and have never been without job, and I make a very good line rate with an awesome company.  I like coming to this board and looking around since I don't really have a relationship with co-workers in this business, it is nice to see what others are thinking, but for the most part I take everything with a grain of salt. 


But what happened to you about the recruiter is pretty horrid.  I can't believe somebody would do such a hateful thing, but in the end they may have done you a favor, I don't think I would have wanted to work for a company that was so rude and unprofessional. 

Positions are IC, you pick your hours.
You haven't seen 'me' pick at anyone. I don't know who
you think I am, but 'sm' just means 'see message', and everyone uses it...
I agree, who wants to constantly nit-pick with the QA, tit-for-tat!...
'The less contact one has with the QA person the better, believe me, stay 'invisible' as much as you can.
They only requested that I pick the days

I would work and that they include 1 weekend day, which seems fair to me.  We fill out monthly calendars, letting them know if we cannot work a day (be it a weekday or weekend).  I have never been told I could not have a day off.  We do not have to give the hours we will work, only the amount of lines we will put in per day.

I have absolutely no problem with any of that.  Having worked for MQ in the past, where we were chastised for clocking in 15 minutes late or our keyboards were monitored for inactivity, MDI has been a breath of fresh air. 

If I were an employee, I would certainly be upset if I had to log in and had no work and then would have to keep checking back throughout my shift for work, only to have to make up the entire shift later on.  That seems very unfair to me. 

If I run out of work at MDI, I email my liason and let them know that I'm out and I'll make it up another day if there's work.  If there is not enough work later in the week, then I don't make it up.  I can't help it if there's no work.  I'm flexible, but I don't live to work.  I'm also fortunate to have another income. 

Sorry to hear of your situation.  Didn't mean to be so nosy.  Your post didn't say either way that you worked at MDI, but I just assumed so -- you know what that makes me!

Did you try AccuSTAT Wisconsin? nm

AccuStat Carolinas
Well AccuStat carolinas is who I work with and I have been doing great with them. They are offering more and more work so we never run out. Pay is always on time...for us experienced MTs...all is GREAT!!!
