Lots and lots of posts in the archives.
They offshore. Lots of posts about

their poor or lack of communication.  Their pay scale is weird, depends on shift, year's experience, CMT, account, etc.   I talked with 2 different people when interviewing, recruiter was not honest with me about the account they wanted to put me on, thankfully team leader was.  I had previously worked on that account with another company and it was a horrible account.   I can't remember if they had more than employee status or if they provide computer, but if you look at their ads on the job boards it should say. 

I was told platform was DocQScribe and also WebCorrect was mentioned.  Never used them so don't know much about them, but I haven't heard good things about either.  Each report had 3 files, 2 of which are not voice files, but supposedly they compensate you 3 (?) lines for each report.   Sounds like a pain to me.  

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.
Lots of negative posts if you do a search. nm
Lots of info, posts weekly about them.
They offshore, pay is average.   Didn't accept position so don't know about platform. 
Do a search of Meditech on here; lots of posts! - nm
Lots of NM posts because it means NO MESSAGE.
Lots of posts in archives stating that it is
a Indian run company.  Supposedly they have a U.S. storefront office in MA.  Turnover is very high, which is why they constantly have ads running.  The only good thing I've ever heard about them is they will hire newbies.  They pretty much have to because an experienced MT would not want to work for them unless they couldn't find a job elsewhere. 
I have read lots of posts here and yours, without a doubt,
seems to me to be one of the worst I have seen. You have just told another human being they have nothing of importance to offer to anyone. I saw this and I hope you feel better by posting because I think by far it is the worst as far as putting someone down. For the 1 this was intended for, I hope you take it with a grain of salt and do not stake your life on a statement like this. I would, as my mother used to say, consider the source.
They are a waste of time. Lots of posts in
the archives.
They offshore. Lots of posts about them if you'll read
the archives. 
Posts from the last 2 yrs said not a good place to work. Lots of MTs
Several posts recently on newest pages here & lots of
Search on the company board. Lots of posts.
You are gathering wrong. Lots of posts of people
This is like beating a way dead horse at this point. So many just can't follow the subject of posts. The poster you are responding to is stating the fact that this is JUST LIKE the fiasco that used to go on here regularly with Keystrokes, with management and owners freaking out at any perceived criticism and posting over and over and over defending the company, calling the MTs liars, fakes, whatever. Yes, it is exactly the same, and it shines a very negative light on the company name, worse than the original posting. It is very yucky to see companies posting on here. It does tend to validate the MTs who have complaints. Its just plain old weird.
Lots of posts recently, look down the board, search
the archives.
Lots of posts recently in the archives. Horrible
If you'll look down the page lots of posts recently. nt
I put nt and you looked anyway.
Search company board. Lots of posts recently, all
bad. Each and every one.
They advertise on the "other" jobs board. Lots of posts about them here. nm
Check the archives and more recent posts. Lots of info there.
Posts on pg 2 here and lots at bottom of page 3 make them kind of iffy. nm
Use the Google box on this page and click on MTStars for your search. Lots of posts
I assume QT Medical. Do a search and you'll find lots of old posts. nm
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. 
Lots of promises, no follow through. Lots and lots of internal sm
problems. She is recruiting heavy right now as she has a CHANCE at getting a big account back. Even if they get it back, they'll blow it again from poor management.
MQ MT/ME packets

Not sure where to put this question, this is first time I've had comment/question on this web site so sorry if this is in wrong place :)  I'm wondering about all these comments that sound like the people have already received and read this MT/ME packet that aren't supposed to be mailed out until sometime next week?  Have some people already received them?  thanks :)

Thanks for the responses; I'm in lower midwest so will look for mine in the next few days :) appreciate the feedback.
Actually many of us have packets already
I don't recall the answer to this question for sure, but it may be at the hourly rate.
Got E-mail from MQ - packets to be out by 10/07. (sm)

I am keeping my fingers crossed.  There have been many, many changes in how transcription was done since I first began.  In fact, in the old days there was no working at home and I have to admit I am old enough to remember doing this with carbon sets and having to correct several pages if you made a typo. 

I am hoping that whatever changes are coming about in the industry that I can adapt and find a way to make it work for me for just 11 more years then I can sit back and bask in the sunshine of retirement with my hubbie.

Were the packets indivualized or

Were these packets individualized as mentioned days ago on this post?

MQ--PTO and incentive question for those who have packets

What is the scoop on getting the 18 days of PTO?  Info I have seen says "up to 18 days" is this based on the 150 per line/40 hour week classification or do you have to do more than that to qualify for the full 18 days? 

On the incentive, so I get that it's 1 cpl for 1200 lines per day and goes up from there.  Would you be willing to post the scale of how it goes up from there?  Or if that's too much, say for example one types 1800-2000 lines a day...what's the incentive amount for that range?

Thanks for the info, trying to learn SOMETHING that will help me put a positive spin on where this is going!!

no one has the packets yet, remember? another 7-10 days...
Higher up PM told me packets mailing out on 9/30.
MQ PTO: Do the packets say how PTO is accrued, or if it still paid at average rate? nm
Just remember, what MQ says in the packets today is not necessarily what they will agree to
I totally agree, your story is mine and lots, and lots of others, please
believe me when I say Keystrokes has been honest like we used to have in this profession. If I can help one Transcriptionist avoid what we have, this will all be worth it. I worked parttime for Keystrokes at the time I was fulltime with ____ and quit, 2 years later I begged them to take me back after once again my paycheck was cut in half, and they did with open arms. I don't mean to run down anyone but a lot of these transcription companies are getting obscenely rich while paying below minimum wage to transcriptionists, playing with dictation and after working for a couple of them you know who is honest and who is not. Sorry I came down so hard but the reality is there are single mothers out there that I bet cry themselves to sleep not able to give their children a decent life because it is easier to steal from us. When companies have millions of dollar to pay for other transcription companies, open transcription schools in other countries, ect., ect., you know there is a lot of money in it. That is all I am saying.
I don't think we work at the same place, but I have been working lots and lots of hours.
Very thankful to have a decent job.
Lots and lots of recent stuff in archives.
Lots and Lots of info about them in the archives. nm
Lots and lots of work. You will love
Lots and lots of info in archives and several
posts just down the page.  Open your original post and near the bottom click on the blue see related posts and you'll get the most recent posts. 
Posts from April said everyone gets 8.5 cpl/newbie or experienced. Recent posts said
Lots lots, cuz I prefer
the OP/PR notes over any report......
A few posts about them about 3/4 of the way down this page between the DSG & Diskriter posts. nm
Call them. I have lots of work, had lots of work
during the holidays too.   I don't know who routes the work, but one of the office people is on vacation this week.   I occasionally have to call to get work depending on what hours I'm working, but I have never not gotten work when I've asked for it.  
lots of ESL
This company works on VA and other accounts. The accounts have LOTS of ESL MDs on them and they are HARD ESL MDs too....the accounts are truely not worth the pay!!
lots of ESL's do not do it
You will never get out of the program and a certain mentor will grade you only on ESLs and you will not get out.
Lots of changes still going on there.
lots of ESL...sm
They are a pretty good company to work for. Pay is on time. The only thing is all the ESLs...and different doctors every day....really messes up your production, as normals are impossible.


ESL - Chinese, Indian, Russian, Hispanic, British and many really awful english speaking newbie residents in the process of training. 

Yes, you can have (and may often need) the 12-hour window.  Workload is not consistent, had to ask for secondaries before I was there 3 months; when OT is approved other people come charging on there and take all the work.  Overstaffing appears to be a problem (though not a huge one yet).

I hope you can avoid the RadNet program, which atrocious and you are expected to be the unpaid go between for Webmedx techs and client techs, neither of which will own the problem.  Main platform, Enterprise, is slow and often slower.  Expect to have to drop what you're doing due to system freeze-ups and reboot a couple times a day.

The supe is very nice.
