Serving Over 20,000 US Medical Transcriptionists

Was hired for a company that promised lots of work.

Posted By: Fourth time in 3 weeks there is no work. Why on 2009-06-01
In Reply to:

do they do this?  I checked the archives on this company before accepting the position and although there were similar complaints along with disorganization and some others I decided to give it a try.  In retrospect I should have listened to those posts.  I'm out of work for the 4th time now, there's no communication.  I don't know if my first clue something was amiss was the recruiter with her kids screaming in the background during the interview or the vague answers to questions I had clearing indicating there no transcription experience on her end.  Why do companies do this.  I have bills to pay and I always, always address this situation - is there enough work, do you run out of work often.  I know there are times when work may be low but this consistently happening.

I did speak with my manager. Work was promised. No work there when I needed to work.
I see the reports everyday too, but when I get work it is of bad quality, then there is no work unless I work diffrent shifts. Thank you.
FC is a great company, very stable, lots of work. sm
The platform is simple and easy to use. You have a choice of transcribing in Word or WP5.1. My only negative is the sound quality. QA is very helpful and responsive. The people are very, very nice. I'm a bit of a perfectionist but still manage to rack up the lines pretty well. Pay is direct deposit, never late, many times early. On a scale of 1-10, I give this company a 9.

I recommend this company to seasoned MTs.

Promised to call you to start work?
I'm sorry, but as a recruiter it's hard to believe that a company looks at your testing and assumes that you'll buy in to what they're selling before having a long discussion between the two of you. Something's fishy here.
Good company, lots of clinic work, pay on time.
I work for a company with lots of work,

I work a second/third shift position and I still run out of work.  I asked for a secondary account probably 6 weeks ago and haven't received one yet.

You can call the MTSO or your supervisior, but they really don't care, the work is getting done and that is all that really matters. 

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 work. You will love
It's a great company -- lots of work and great pay. sm
Web site is www.mditrans.net.  If you need anymore info, feel free to ask. 
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 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.
Need company with Lots of OPs
Looking for a company with lots of OPs available (that can support 300-400 lph x8 hours a day).  Need full time employee status with benefits.  What companies allow you to do exclusively Ops?  Thanks.  
Yup, lots of ESLs.. I like the company though and
after a while, once you get used to them, they are not so bad. Sometimes, I find the US physicians worse with mumbling, etc
Lots. Horrible company.
Sound quality horrible, dictators beyond horrible.  Late paychecks, constantly changing ways to get lines, horrible management. 
There are lots of things a company can tell from
Maybe they don't care about how you pay your bills, but the credit report also has previous addresses (as in how many times you've moved) and previous companies you've worked for (as in how many times you've changed jobs). Also, if there are a lot of delinquent payments, they can assume you'll be interrupted at home (during your shift) with dunning calls. Personally, if I were an employee, I'd hire someone with late payments, knowing they need the job!!
But if you worked for a company that hired
good quality MTs in the first place, you would not have so many 100% QAs, right? Actually..I think I work in the same place : ( lol
I was just hired by a company who uses DVI with MS word and I need sm
medical spell check software. Any suggestions?
I was hired by a company 2 months ago.
They downloaded everything they needed on my computer, sent me pedals and now just waiting for training. My question is this - How long does this normally take. I have never had to wait this long to get started (not even with Keystrokes). I have sent several emails and have called the office several times and am told the same thing ---- still waiting on the hospital, we are extremely busy, etc.

I'm seriously considering sending their pedals back to them and chalking it up but I would like to know your thoughts on how you would (have) handle this. TIA

Can you e-mail me the company you got hired with?
I only have 5 years of experience, but I haven't been offered anywhere near 9 cpl for clinic. I would greatly appreciate it. Granted, not looking to switch jobs any time soon, but wouldn't mind knowing where to look in the future if need be.
Someone asks about this company weekly. Lots of
info available. 
MDI-Florida. They promised me
ops, but they never have any.
They promised you a raise already? Or is that
not what you meant? I just find that surprising. Is the pay good? Do you have enough work on 1 account? Is it internet? Wondering if I should check them out.

Hired company, but sale did not take place, right ? n/m
Not when I was hired (October). Great company. :-) nm

Does anyone what national company has been hired to handle...

ProHealth Care of Wisconsin hospitals. I heard that they have now changed to a national company to do all of their work for all their facilities.

Search on the company board. Lots of posts.
Most company web sites have testimonials from LOTS of employees, not just one. sm

Kind of makes you think, doesn't it?  They just use that one tired rave review of yours.

As far as not having a problem with you being gone -- you're an IC!  You're SUPPOSED to be able to be gone when you need to be.   It is another place that doesn't seem to know the meaning of the idea of being an IC, although that is par for the course nowadays and I really cannot point them out as being the only one who does that.

It would seem best to let the CardioScribes thread die, but you had to bring it to the foreground again. 

You mean not being told to find another job, being promised 3
bonuses that were never  paid, a gift certificate for Outback restaurant that was never received, entry into a drawing for $100 gift certificate that you never even heard who won it,  would not endear you to a company so you would be its most loyal employee?   Now you know why I dumped MDI-FL and went to a company that actually appreciates employees, pays bonuses it promised me, and has equal benefits, and pays more on a decent platform. 
promised rate increase
I have to 100% agree with your statement as I personally experienced just what you stated.
Were you promised a raise after a year?
Lots of work here too. I cannot figure out which accounts have no work.
I'm on the Escription platform
Great place to work. LOTs of work and (sm)
as the other poster noted, somewhat flexible.  Make your lines and they pretty much leave you be.  Communication is great, QA is great.  The platform is extremely easy.  There's plenty of work to go around and then some. 
Escription has been out of work. Dictaphone has lots of work.

Search company board. Lots of posts recently, all
bad. Each and every one.
Some company lists have been around a long time, so lots of places
STAY AWAY from this company! Do a search here. Lots of information, none of it good.

Company emails and paperwork with lots of typos and misspellings
I recently started working with a small MTSO. In just about every email from the owner, I see typos, misspelled and misused words. Also, the same goes for all paperwork I have received. Even the QA manager does the same thing.

Would you bring such things to their attention?
LMAO. The hospital locally PROMISED
when the time came, they did not follow through with their promise. Alot of MT's walked and now work for nationals and are much more happy and make a whole lot more money, including myself.

Your situation is good for you, but may not be so good for the next person.
Indian company. If you'll search the archives lots of info
on them.
Several months ago a company called Charts in Time (CIT) hired some MTs off here. Just wondering how
it turned out for those MTs as I turned it down and wondered if I should have taken the job. Thanks.
lots of work
I got bored and tired of MQ not ever having any work, and I have found 2 part time positions that allow me to work whenever I want so long as I can get the required lines within a certain time frame. So far, I have worked for one platform for one month and the other for 1 day and already I am averaging more lph than with MQ. Think DocQScribe stinks maybe? Then add to that the time it takes for that stupid Etime logging baloney. I can't believe it took me this long, but it seems pretty plain to me.
I have lots of work on my
If you don't already have a secondary...ask for one.
Probably everything you said. I have lots of work.
Lots of companies overhire probably because they need the work done and there are always a few MTs who have issues and don't work regularly or don't do their committed lines, so they hire more to make up for it.   It is possible they may be offshoring too.  You can ask about the company here and if they are offshoring someone may know.  Unfortunately there isn't anything you can do about either situation. 
lots of work?
So which company is it you work for that gives you lots of work?
Lots of work.
Software productive and becoming more so as enhancements are made to the program.
They do have lots of work. That is plus.
yes, there is usually lots of work
once in a while, it does run out but not for very long and it really doesn't happen that often.
Lots of work here
I get e mails once or twice a week from my account work flow coordinator (that are sent out to everyone) saying that the volume has picked up and anyone who wants more lines and more $$ is welcome to sign on.
anyone get hired/work with TRX?
I had an interview with them last week, she said she'd get back to me with her decision, but never did.  Wondering what its like to work there if they are so unprofessional as to not call back when they promise. 
Just Hired - No Work!
Wouldn't jump ship and head to Webmedx.  Been there 1 month and already out of work.  Good thing I haven't quit my other part-time position!
