If anyone absolutely LOVES their company ... sm

I would love to hear about it!  I have 15 years experience, 14 of that acute care, need employee status with benefits.  I'm with the BIG transcription company now that is steadily taking away everything good about being an at-home transcriptionist   :(  Have been there 12 years. 

Any suggestions?  It's sure confusing going through all of these different companies, trying to figure out pros and cons. 

Thanks, I would love to hear from anyone who works for a great company! 

if anyone absolutely loves their company
I used to work for MQ but quit over 2 years ago. I now work for EMTSonline and absolutely love it. Work is plentiful. They are all very supportive. I absolutely love my work again.
misery loves company
and I'm on the verge of tears. Yes, I have e/m'd (multiple liaisons and Ms. C., requested more accounts, which were not given to me, and DID get answers to e/m but seemingly to pacify, not to remedy.

Must not have the same accts as fatcat, as mine were NOT full last night.

Guess my weight loss efforts will get help via the job, as I won't have money for much groceries and will be too depressed to eat anyway.
Misery sure loves company.

So now you are wishing your bad luck on me!  Well that's the way to be; you all are no different than me.  Furthermore, no one likes to hear the truth.  The truth is that MDI looked out for their business, which is what you would have done as well.  Everyone need look out for themselves. 

I'm just telling it like it is and the reality of it all.  If or when it does happen to me and yes it has happened to me, I pick up and move on.  I would never sit around and wait for work to come to me. 

Do y'all have no sense at all? 

P/S:  Companies start at 9.  You have to look for them though.  Transcend pays 9 to start, so what's your beef?

QA loves MTs like this one
Not so much the ones who don't read the account specifics or look up sample reports.
Anyone out there that loves Spheris? sm
Just offered a job, haven't talked about pay or schedule yet. Let me know what you think!
Nah, she just loves VR, as do I, quite honestly
I think it just depends on the individual and the account to which one is assigned.

I do about 2.5 times as much editing as I do straight transcription (and I'm NOT slow at transcription, I'm quite fast). Therefore, I make a bit more editing than I do with straight transcription.

I'd like to point out, however, that I'm on an overall excellent account with very good dictators. The only time I encounter the 'it would be quicker to just retype it' is if the dictator has a bad/staticky/muffled connection and the VR can't recognize exactly what is being dictated.

I can see where it's not for everyone but I always thought it would be interesting to be a book editor; perhaps my love of VR stems from that early-in-life career goal, lol!
For someone who loves VR, sounds
great to me!
Well, anyone who loves their job needs to tell us where she is so happy at..Would love to know..

But if you know you're a great mom and you know everyone loves you, sm
why would such a great person like you need  a card to redeem herself? 
I have a friend who works for them and she loves 'em. don't know about pay
My 10 y/o loves pickle relish and mayo sandwiches
how do we work it? Easy answer - work for another company. That happened with the company
I was working for. I would wake up at 4 a.m. AND ON THE WEEKENDS TOO because they needed "coverage" supposedly and I would sit until 9:30 or noon without any work. Sorry, but my rent of $1450/month could not be paid with only $57/day. So I got another job and when I got the equipment and everything, then I quit for the other employer.
Must be a small company. I have never talked to the owner of the company I work for. sm
He wouldn't have time. Why would someone talk directly to the MTSO? Most do not know (or care) about the details just the big picture.
Let me know if you pursue this company. I would like to work for a MN company as an employee?
Let me know! Thanks!
Chasing work from company to company - Have any of you ever watched (sm)

5 year olds learning to play soccer?  The ball is in play and no matter what the coahes say ALL the kids go running for the ball.  Maybe we are like that, masses of us going from company to company in search of work.  This company has a new account BOOM here we go.  Now it is out.  Let's go here. 

Yep, I think it is a big game someone is playing with us.  Not a particularly funny one either. 

What is the best company to go to for IC that is a nice company to work for that has work for you
and also is interested if you want to work part time at some point.
Absolutely not! I work for the best MTSO. I am have been so blessed to work for the small company I

I will share this about the MTSO I work for.  I called her late last Wednesday night after Church and told her I was compelled to help out with Hurricaine Katrina in some way and an opportunity arose for a small group from my Church to go to Louisianna this coming week.  Would she be able to cover my work.  She told me no problem without any hesitation and even donated money for the trip. 

And I am sure there are plenty of good companies out there to work for.  To compare us to migrant workers is just not right.

Like I said - it depends who you work for. I work for a hospital at home - not a company. nm
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 actually left about a year ago and work for another company that's running out of work. Have to
I so wholeheartedly agree with you. Don't work for KS but work for SS - another company bashed
Works GREAT for me and I love SS. I never really care what the negatives are as I have found they are usually people that can't make their lines, don't work the hours they commit to or just overall do not care!
I work for an all-US company and refuse to work for one that offshores. Best of luck to you. nm
Why would you want to work for a company with no QA? Anyways the only company that comes to mind is
I worked for in the past which is Medquist NJ Radiology.
Work PT for a company and noticed something odd. When I work the day shift I get (sm)

actually fairly good dictators, a couple of toughies, but no more than one would expect.  When I do the late afternoon/early evening shift it is like night and day.  I get some really crummy dictators and tons of problem/miscoded reports.  

They have said that there is no cherry picking able to be done with this program so I just have to wonder if the crappy dictators can't get to the dictate stations until after 4 p.m. or what?

Nuff said, back to work.  Thanks for letting me air it out.

I work for a company in FL. I pull my work off their
system in FL, so they do not pay state taxes.  I've been there 5 years and they have never paid state tax.   Don't know my state tax code, but since they are in a different state can't see how it would apply anyway.  The IRS hasn't complained.  I increased DH state tax deduction to compensate instead of having to pay quarterly taxes. 
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 work for another company...
MQ had no problem with it when they hired me.
NEVER pay a company to work for them.
That is a scam.

There is a difference in renting equipment or putting up a deposit for equipment to be sent to you.

How do you have to pay to work for them?
the company I work for...
pays the same way. As long as you have direct deposit, it really isn't that bad. With my company the pay period ends the 15th and the last day of the month, and checks are either sent out or deposited on the 20th and 5th. The main difference is that you never have a chance for those 2 bonus pay months where you receive 3 paychecks instead of just 2.
I work for this company too and my DD have never been
late.  I did receive my check in the mail today, the day after it was scheduled for DD, and it was mailed on 12/7, the day before DD is scheduled.  A bit of an inconvenience, but a one time issue. 
I think we work for the same company.
I was told it was not a sign on bonus, only for MTs in good standing with the company. The shortages in the paychecks are for the 30% deduction for headers and footers (that we do not type).
If you want to work for a company
than OSi is for you.
We know we work for the best company (sm)

so let's get together and share info!  Email me if you want to be part of a mailing list.  Please indicate your account(s).

I do not want to work for a company
the comapnies who do offshore so I will not waste my time testing.

Would you work for a company
that made you sign an agreement not to mention the name anywhere on the internet, web forums and agreed not to endeavour to form or join a union?
Which company is the best to work for...
Looking for a good company, decent pay and no ESL's.  Is there a company out there that anyone knows of???
I work for a company that does that...sm
I have worked for a company for a couple of years that pays like that (still there). The way they explained it when I started was that if you are an IC, they need to bill and get payment from your accounts (rather than you invoicing the company) and then after that 1st 30-day cycle, your first check is 2 weeks after that, so 6 weeks all together. confused anyone yet?? At first it was difficult waiting, but every 2 weeks after that like clockwork I get paid. The way I look at it is that if I ever leave them I still get paid for a month and a half.
Can you say which state this company is in??
The BEST company to work for???
Want input on the best company to work for out there.
Me, too. We must work for the same company!


What company did you work for?
I will know not to apply if I am looking for a job.
Why would anyone pay to work for a company?

I refuse to rent/buy their equipment to work for them.  That's ridiculous. Good luck getting your deposit back - they usually find some excuse not to return the money to you.

Do you believe this - the company I work for

sent a mailnote to their transcriptionists stating that the office will be closed Thursday (Thanksgiving) and Friday, although there may be some overflow of work.  Any help would be appreciated!  They didn't even say Happy Thanksgiving.  - Talk to the butt!!

I work for that company and sm

she is not likely, as a brand new employee, to get either holiday off.  The newest work the holidays, and that is a fact.  Other, longtime employees, have asked months in advance if they want the days of.  As a new employee, she will not have that option.

And, no, people who transcribe from home are nothing like the rest of the healthcare industry, not in any way.  We are scheduled 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, holidays included.  Some companies pay more for that, and some do not, but it is still expect.  It is not considered sacred, not in any way.  The work has to be covered.  We all have families.  We all work around our family obligations and celebrations.  If you work somewhere that is not like that, please, tell us where.

Which company would you work for? sm....
Transolutions for MDI FL?  Can't make up my mind.
I do not work for this company, but
do you think they overhire?  It seems like there are a lot posts stating that companies run out of work.  I cannot believe as I have my own accounts that these docs are not dictating every day, especially clinic.  Then all of a sudden, bam...  you get bombarded???  That is why pooling is so not attractive?!  I am just making assumptions here, but it does seem really odd.  How can one even count on this income?  Oh well, I'm probably just adding fuel to the fire!  Good luck.
MDI-MD is a better company, IMO, to work for - sm
About 5 months ago, they acquired two hospitals in Maryland that are supereasy docs to transcribe. EVEN THE RADIOLOGY IS SUPER EASY!!!! Very few foreign docs. Check into it. Plenty plenty plenty of work on the account.
Which company do you work for??
Dang, which company do you work for?
We must work for the same company
Inexperienced MTs who HAD to have lied on their resume and got someone else to take their test...making 9cpl while I make 3.5 cpl to retype reports and send email after email with QA feedback.

I am seriously searching for an hourly QA position with no luck so far.
S/l you work/ed for the same company I do. I really

like those pens and still use them.  When I write checks, which rarely happens since I got a debit card, people always comment on my pen.  

NOT a company you want to work for!
I worked for focus about a year and a half ago for about 1 month. They are TOTALLY Indian run. The only people in the US that you will deal with are HR and payroll, who are in Massachusetts. The rest of the company is strictly in India. They were VERY rude to me,and you cannot even understand a single word they say when they call you to train you or for any other reason. The dock pay for errors and send very rude QA feedback, which I have never had a problem with at any other company. They also constantly will harass you on Yahoo messenger. They were even messaging me when I went to appear offline in the middle of the night! I finally quit and went to another company, a US company! I would NOT recommend Focus. There are several much better companies out there to choose from.
