Webmedx has overhired

Posted By: MTLongtim on 2007-09-07
In Reply to: Thanks. I'm a bit stressed after reading the handbook. It looks - me

Hired all of Medquist employees and now running out of work. Have several accounts that I work on, so that is not the problem.

Same here. I am sure they have overhired! sm..
Sad, because I really, really like FutureNet but I have been testing all week during the downtimes with FutureNet (which has been 20 out of 24 hours a day it seems)....I believe they have overhired and it is not fair.  I know that they have to meet their turnaround times but maybe they should have given some kind of incentive.  I know that may sound rude but everyone, at times, has hard times and cannot be there for a day or something.  But to actually go in and hire WAY TOO MANY people to make it where you cannot even come close to what you were getting is just ridiculous!  Why is always feast or famine?  I wonder if a lot of people are quitting or have quit because I know from my experience, my pay has been cut down to 1/6 of what I was getting prior...and my family and I cannot live off of that.
MDI-FL has overhired again.
DSG has overhired once again!
What primary accounts?  Bounced around all day scaping the bottom of the barrel because there is hardly enough work to go around.  Some of us have been there for a long time now and helped to keep these accounts afloat when there were only a few of us working when we said we would. 
More than likely overhired (sm)
I have been with them over 2 years. I have seen the volumes go and up down. I can always tell when they overhire and then it will level out (at least with my account).

I have noticed the work is running low on a lot of the accounts. So......who knows....time will tell.
If like MDI-FL, they overhired and no work.
I don't think they have overhired, but they hire
way too early for a new account.   From reading the message boards there are people who have finished training for an account that isn't even due to come on-line until December and I know at least some of them are working on other accounts until their account comes on-line.

They may very well have overhired, although there are usually at least 5 accounts who have OT on them almost every day.
They have overhired once again. Not much work
They have overhired for management sm
and are screwing the MTs. STill spouting the same have a nice day, we appreciate you policy. They bought another MT company last year, have totally partnered up with the totally bogus MT org (whom no decent MT has anything to do with), hired a lot of people from there for management, and have an agenda that is OUT OF CONTROl. Nothing there is to benefit the transcriptionist. Hope I die before I have to retire from there with nada.
True. I am leaving. They have way overhired and (sm)
just cannot make money with them. Thanks for letting me know I am not crazy!LOL!!:)
If they overhired it won't be a problem for long.
People get tired of them screwing with line counts and checks not consistently on time ...... and leave.   I can't believe they are still in business. 
TransTech has WAY overhired recently

May want to reconsider their offer or you could end up with insufficient work along with some of us - not all but some of us.

I think they way overhired and I told my supervisor that too.
I'm on escription, clinic and hospital and all is low/out.
No TT overhired for the overflow account
they are putting those MTs on the other accounts.
That is the problem on my account...they overhired (sm)
I really hope they do try to rectify things with the accounts that are overstaffed because it is a great place to work and I do not want to look for another job.  All I want is steady work on my account.  I know it's hard to staff these accounts because they can't really predict how much work there will be.
My guess is that they've overhired again. nm
still, though, overhired. companies would get more cooperation if (sm)
they'd cut back on that. and, yes! communication - conference calling - using the voice so nothing is misinterpreted.
Someone suggested everyone has overhired a lot of former MedQuist people -
Not sure if this is true or not, but it is one possibility. A friend of mine says her checks have been less than half what they normally are for June AND July. Let's hope it picks up for us all soon!
Sounds like you are suffering from the overhired syndrome that is

causing lots of us to look elsewhere.  There are lots of MTs who work for more than one account.  They can't be without work so they juggle.  I don't see a conflict with working 2 jobs, unless both are full-time and then juggling them might be an issue. 

I've worked 3 jobs at once, 1 full-time and 2 part-time, but that was back in the days before work was offshored and VR and I had a ton of work and just couldn't do all that was being asked of me.  I have worked 2 for a short time while starting a new one and not wanting to quit the other one until I got a feel for things. 

They have overhired for the summer. We will ALL be running out of work!

They thought they had a new account and it was not a go, so overhire again.  They are just running this ship TOO TIGHT



I agree. Though I have found the IC job still overhired, I do better at my employee job
I stuck it out for too many months with my IC job as my 1 and only job. I got lots of accounts and tried lots of ways to get work, 24 hours checking. My paychecks were still pale. This went on for way too long. It was TAT and overhiring. Good for them, not for me. So, I decided to go with a big national I worked with years ago, as an employee, and took a split shift. Best move I have made in years to go back to the national. I have been drowning in work and my paychecks are finally getting to the old days, 2 or 3 years ago. I will definitely not let my IC job go but I will never depend on it again. As long as I show up now and then there, I have both jobs. Use the IC for pocket money and in case the national runs dry which is doubtful, I never have to go to tertiary accounts. It took me a very bad year and lots of jobs to find a good fit but I hope that people out there do believe it is possible to earn a good living. Just trial and error. And to those who work directly for a hospital, please count your blessings. I took my position directly way too lightly. Of course they have outsourced now. But it is possible to be back to 40K or more again, just hang in there!
look, they probably overhired, they don't care if 100 transcriptionist quit, just hire more.
Platform a bit slow, loads of material to know on each acct, they overhired
for the acct they put me on, so I sit and wait for work to roll in. They gave me a secondary acct, but again I wait. I think some are happy there, I might be if they didn't overhire and they beefed up their platform to move a little quicker.
TransTech has no work; that is why; lost accounts; overhired significantly BAD nm

Does TT care?  No, they get their big paychecks no matter if the MT's do or not.

What is Webmedx FL? Webmedx itself is located in Pittsburgh & Atlanta. nm
Webmedx ad apply at Webmedx or Transhealth ? (sm)
Apply to one address if you need equipment, another if you want to use your own?  Does this mean they are still acting as 2 separate companies?   Can anyone explain this?
Webmedx?? Why do you say Webmedx is foreign??
Been with them 10 months.  They are great.  Fair. Great platform. Great pay.  But, I have been doing this for 25 years, no idea how it is for newbies that need hand-holding.  Though the trainers seem competent and willing, the little contact I had with them.
I like WebmedX very much.
Most important, pay is on time, direct deposit, and always correct. QA folks are very helpful without being condescending. They and the managers really do want you to do well and do whatever they can to help you achieve that. I am on a heavy ESL account and yet I find it quite easy to do as there are so many avenues of help with access to numerous samples and the ability to view transcribed records.

My experience has been quite good with this company. I can only speak for Webmedx as I have not worked for Medware.
Apparently, you don't really want opinions if you don't want to hear from "Bashers."

However, I have nothing bad to say - I have been there 8 mos. - come on board. They have great insurance. They provide you with a text Expander with your computer, and they pay on time everytime. My supervisor is probably the best I have ever had - I've been in this business for over 20 years.

Having worked for both and currently WebMedX, they're the best choice.  They are a lot nicer and easier to deal with, their pay is better, their benefits are better, their scheduling is better.  I honestly have had no complaints with them.  Once Spheris went through their whole restructuring plan for pay and line counts, they went right down the tubes as far as caring about their employees instead of the almighty $$ for themselves, in my opinion (sort of like MQ is doing right now).
Does anyone work for webmedx? Do you ever run out of work?  Any information would be appreciated.  Thank you.
Check out Webmedx - they have very affordable health insurance coverage. 
Webmedx sends out Christmas gifts, as well as gifts during MT Week. This compan rocks!

Run from Webmedx

Can anyone give me some insight on this company?  Do they provide steady work,  do you make your lines and hours either PT or FT, benefits and are MTs appreciated? Thanks!!!
I have been with Webmedx for several years now (acute care MT) and they are a wonderful company to work for!  I have a great account, a flexible schedule, and feel very appreciated by the management staff.  We just received our Christmas gifts.  I also received gifts during MT Week.  The platform they use is very easy to learn.  I hope you give them a try!
What about Webmedx?
Webmedx hires PT MTs and rates run between 7 and 9 CPL, depending on the difficulty of the account.  We are all running OT right now and more accounts are coming on next week.  They provide computer too. 
I will check them out! Thank you!
Definitely WEBMEDX!
They are an AWESOME company to work for!
Anyone know anything about Webmedx? TIA
Has anyone ever worked for WebMedX, and can you tell me if you are happy or unhappy. Could you tell me a little about it.
They don't pay! That basically sums it up.
I've worked for them for over 6 years doing Radiology. Every two weeks my check is in the bank. I worked for an MTSO for 7 weeks and every check has bounced. Is the pay as good as a hospital or free standing Radiology clinic. NO. But someone who wants to work at home because of small children or transportation problems couldn't go wrong working for them.
Webmedx sm
I just checked.  The recruiter said they are not hiring IC's.
I have been working for Webmedx now as an MT for over five years and they are great! Probably the most professional company I have ever worked for.
Do they pay relatively well for experienced MTs?  I have 11 years of experience, 9 of those acute care.  Does anyone know their pay scale?  Thanks.
Webmedx also going VR

but they do have bonus pay -- for now.

Have no knowledge of Axoltol, but Webmedx is heavy ESL and some really bad ones (I used to QA there). On a positive note, their software is incredibly easy to use and pay was decent, everyone nice to work with.

Any information on this company pros and consciousness appreciated
