I used to work for a company who separated the MTs by work type daily. sm
regret ever leaving that company. we had a max of 4 MTs typing a large training hospital with clinics. i was assigned consults and discharges with consults being my priority. another MT had ops and admits, etc. it worked so much better. we were RARELY out of TAT and each of us were trained on other report types for backup in case someone need to take off. not to mention that we were easily able to learn the ESLs because we got them repeatively enough to learn them, set up templates, etc. much, much more productive for us as MTs, for the company as work flow, and i am sure for the dictator because they got someone who knew them and their dictations well enough to be accurate. i don't understand why large MTSOs cannot comprehend how much more beneficial that would be.
I do not work for them, but I have done recruiting for companies of their type of work
It is A LOT different than regular medical transcription. The pay is a little less (unless you are proficient and fast), but the work is harder in that there are multiple people speaking and the nature of the medical advisory boards are quite detailed. I receive quite a few resumes of medical transcriptionists wanting to do this type of work, but when you test them, it is a whole different ballgame.

Good luck and let me know how you do on the test!

Try All Type. I do not work for them, but - sm
many of my friends do as a part time job from their hospital job. One of them has been with them for over two years, and in this business, that is quite a long time!! LOL
Work type
Discharge summaries, clinic notes, H&P, etc.  Specialties: Orthopedics, Rheumatology, Pulmonary, etc.
Yes, I am doing this same type of work (sm)

and have been doing so for a few years now.  I definitely agree with you that it can involve a lot of research at times; however, I thought he stated in his ad that there might be room for negotiation on his starting pay depending on how many years experience someone had.  I'm just interested in finding out how busy he keeps his transcriptionists.  Thanks for the feedback.  I appreciate it!

All Type - Anyone work for them currently?

All I can find are posts from 2005 and early 2006.  How are they to work for now, specifically do they have a flexible schedule?  Thanks!!

They pay by work type SM
with ops paying the highest.  I interviewed with them for a PT extra job and I thought they would be fine.  Recruiter is very nice, down to earth, and easy to talk to.
What type of work did they take you on for?
I'm going to be doing an account with high ESL, as I'm very comfortable with them. Were you clinic or acute care? I'm worrying now :( That's the reason I left my company was because they couldn't provide me with enough work for even part time.
Did they tell you pay is by the work type with
discharges being 6 or 7 cpl. I believe the only way to make real money is typing ops and working 3rd shift because you get an extra penny for that
It's not that far off for this type of work...
I understood it to be $1.10/page which would equate to $10-15/hour if you type 60 wpm. Who's to say the page isn't double-spaced? I type 100 wpm (no expander) so that would be a pretty decent wage in this day :)
What type of work do they do?

Is this clinic or acute care work? Employee or IC? I'm interested in clinic work w/weekends free if available. I don't like the Sun-Thurs or Tues-Sat schedules... Thanks for any info!

It is DEFINITELY worth it to get the work type you want. nm
Consistent work with All-Type NJ?
Anyone work for All-Type in New Jersey? Am considering them and wonder if their work flow is consistent or are there lots of dry spells? Any other information would ge helpful. Thx.
All Type - Work & Fairness

I can totally sympathize with you - if one is capable of doing the crap work that is who they give it to.  They are short-staffed in both MTs and QA, but I understand they are currently hiring .

As an aside, I would ask ,when applying for acute care, what the volume of ESL will be and what the work-types will be for the particular account for which you will be working.  I know, for a fact, you are not provided with the account information until you start training; by the way their Trainer (Carolyn) is very nice!!

Anyone currently work for All-Type? Have a question. sm
Their website says  need unlimited long distance service.  Then it says method of sending/receiving files is high speed internet.  Current employees,  which is correct?   How are you currently working - on line or over the phone lines?   Thanks.
What type of work and IC or employee? nm
depends on work type
If you can do mostly ops you can fly and make a tremendous amt. If you do HP con and DS it slows you down and makes typing more lucrative.  VR makes money for the company by causing huge decrease in payroll costs but does not benefit the majority of MTs.
anyone work for Freedom Type?
TIA.   pros or cons??  Thinking about them.
Does anyone currently work for Silent Type?

I am interested in talking to someone who currently works for Silent Type and can let me know what the average number of pages they produce in a day.  I was told that it doesn't matter how many lines are on a page, you are paid for the entire page.  In some circumstances that would be pretty good, particularly if there were a lot of normals set up on the account.  I am aware of their practices, the fact that you have to go to NJ to train, etc., but I really would like to know what their transcriptionists are making versus hearing that their rates stink.  I have talked to a few people who say that they do not ever have turnover because their top transcriptionists make quite a bit of money, but I would like to speak to somebody who has been there done that.


I don't get any other work type after OPs. I call in to see if they
are backed up on other accounts that they need help with. I have 4 accounts and when they run out I call. I AM NOT CHERRYPICKING. I am doing what I am given!!
Does anyone work for Silent Type? (sm)
Do they have steady work, flexible schedules, benefits?  Any info will be appreciated.  TIA.
Does anyone use Vista and work at All Type?
Do you have any problems with it? I am wanting to buy a laptop with Vista and any info would be appreciated.  Thanx.
Anyone here work for Silent Type
Any good/bad info, besides the travel to NJ for training? There isn't too much in the archives about them.

Depends on the type of work
In my own experience, if it were psych I'd jump on it in a heartbeat. Anything else, it may not be cost efficient, but it may end up being better than what a lot having been getting lately with the MT/VR combos.
Can anyone fill me in on what type of work Amphion has?
Is it a lot of ESL, and if so how bad/good are the accounts they have?
You can go to mtjobs.com and search by work type. nm
I work for All Type. They are a decent company.
Check them out. I am an IC but if you live in certain states you can be an employee or SE. Not sure if they need anyone right now though.
Anyone work for Freedom Type - please e-mail me nm
But don't they just help other companies with overflow type work?
It seems to me that that would make the work load very unstable.
I work for Freedom Type. They pay twice a month. It's a very sm
pleasant place to work, all clinic. I love it there.
Does Smart Type work with Docuscribe? sm
entertaining an offer and need to know about this.  Thank you.
May I ask what account you are on and what work type you are doing to get 1800 in five hours?
Anyone currently work for All Type or have recent experience with the company? sm

I'm currently exploring my options, and was impressed with the $1000 signon bonus offered, but wondering about the usual things -- quality and quantity of work available, pay on time, etc.


Any input would be appreciated. 

Do they hire for one specific work type, say OP notes? nm
Anyone who is hired for one work type only should make less money (IMO)
Do you mind sharing what type of work you applied for?

I am wondering if I should try applying again, as I see they have more openings at this time and they just wanted cardiology when I first applied.

Potential is good if there is plenty of work to type. sm
Things were great when I first started, and the pay was great.  The work on my particular account started to slow way down after about 5 months, and thus the pay, too. Just be prepared if that is to happen.  I do wish you all the best though.
oh and they have incentive if you type over where they add $$ to your hourly rate for all hours work
I wasn't hired for 1 work type, but told them I like OPs so that is what I am assigned. When I r
out of ops, I usually stop unless we are out of TAT on other jobs because I do not want to take other people's work. I do not think I should get paid less for that.
Anyone with work experience to share on All Type? Choice time once again.....sm
and very happy holidays and merry christmas to everyone out there!  TIA! 
2000 lines, I havent done that in years. What work type do you do? nm
It's been pretty consistent for me, but I work for two companies and type several doctors
and even with that, sometimes it gets slow, and then when it picks up, it is really hectic.  It's so hard with this type of work to get it just right :)
made type -- SO UPSET OVER TT and their NO WORK situation way TOO LONG now

sorry about type, but very, very upset with the TT has lost any concern/care for their MT's who make their paychecks for them.  Dictatphone doesn't pay you your salary, nor pay for your raises.  Your MT's allow your paychecks the remain the same and allow you to give yourselves RAISES.

Leads/sups, etc are transcribing OUR WORK now and we have none to little no paychecks to pay our bills.

You who are thinking of hiring on with TT better give some very consideration to your decision.  GOOD ADVICE.

Just be honest. Put down the shift you're looking for, what type of work, that sort of thing.
Be reasonable in the line rate, or I use "negotiable".  Let them know if you're looking for a large or small company to work for.
Who here is required to type 1800 lines on a daily basis for FT work?
depends on work type, experience, spaces, company, area
Webmedx watches every min you type or don't type.
I personally didn't like logging off to go to the bathroom or get a drink or whatever. Drove me nuts. They were too regimented for me. Not sure if you are aware they do that. Part of working at home is the flexibility and they just weren't. Good Luck
All Type
Would you please share what you love about working there? Enough work, flexible schedule, good people to work with, fair pay scale??? Would like to hear more specifics, if possible. Thank you.
Can you type?
You did not capatalize the first letter in a sentence and did not put an "s" on a word that needed it.
wow, you type?
If I were you, I guess I would love any company that would hire me with that spelling, grammar, and punctuation!
so you get 2 cpl if you type ....
16000 lines plus quarterly bonuses?  Do you have to meet 99% accuracy and have you been able to get the 2 cpl ever? The reason I am asking, lots of rumors that quaterly bonus will be cut, I don't think so, just think they are going to give extra incentive for accuracy, but will be difficult to get. (like spheris)
