Worked a while with X-Press. Some say the testing is tough. That is because main account is tough, which is why they pay more, too. So many dictators (all students) you cannot macro or shortcut much of anything, hence a slow account and not exactly a money maker.
As for Mr. David, with every volume slam came 2- to 3-page emails of screaming and fuming over the account falling behind and how 'bad' and 'inconsiderate' we were professionally; threats of overhiring with 'girls who will work and appreciate it,'...yawn. Stange is right, the next morning - a long apology with praise. The man cannot handle stress and he's working in transcription! You learned to blow the behavior off because it was abusive and, well, hurtful. Added up to both he and the account not worth the effort it took to get through the day.
My experience, a pressure cooker.

you will be hired eventually, then wait at least 3 months if lucky to be put to work. When and if run out of work they will immediately give you a secondary account because they have so many and that might happen within another 3 months....so, if you need a job and $$ income....might want something more dependable. Unbelievable, and not a disgundled person, just stating the facts. They always hire it seems. Just getting to work is not for one really looking for a job right away.
Thank you. Radiology only sounds like what I need. Your time and info is appreciated.
Need information on X-Press. I found some archived comments about them, but would like something more recent. Anyone work there? Used to work there? Hate it? Love it? Pay, etc. Thanks for your help.
Always weigh the information you receive from MTStars. If you hear bad reviews, make sure they can back it up, as well as the good ones. Best of luck!
Anyone working for this company? I checked out their website but wanted to hear from present or past employees. Anybody? If you have info good or bad would appreciate it. TIA.
Thank you all!!! You saved me a lot of time and effort. THANKS!!
MQ pays per report. How does x-press per line rate compare with MQ per report rate?
How big is X-Press? No one seems to know. nm
Just heard through the grapevine that X-press? is hiring radiology MTs. Does anyone have a link or contact for them? Is anyone hiring for rad MTs now? Thanks.
I worked for them for 12 years - be very careful!!
Just wanting to get in touch with anyone who works for this company.
Anyone out there work for this company? Looking for some feedback.
X-press Transcription, Inc.
Have you checked into X-press? They are a strictly radiology only service.
X-press Transcription, Inc.
I think you contacted the wrong company. The X-press I'm talking about is based out of Long Beach, CA and Virginia Beach, VA. Here's their website: http://www.x-presstranscription.com/home.html
Can anyone tell me of any experience they have had with this co?? Thx
X-press - be careful
Pay well, but many problems. Be careful with them.
in a post last year, a lot of us stated that we didnt pass their test. they send you an email asking what kind of tape you would like to test on (standard or micro). you receive instructions and sample formats with this tape.
most of us received our results between a few days and 3 weeks. a lot of us failed the test (in the instructions, it is stated that they purposely picked dictations that were undesireable). sure enough, a lot of us failed, but you are able to test again after 6 months.
someone did post that if you do get hired, you are required to purchase expensive equipment, and work is always low.
sorry, i dont know anything about the pay.
I've worked for X-press Transcription for 10 years now... They are awesome! I've been on only one account for the entire 10 years. They pay by the line, they ALWAYS pay on time and we have direct deposit. I have nothing but great things to say about X-press. But they do wan't very experienced Radiology Transcriptionists only.
RE: X-Press Transcription
I was wondering if you could give me any information on how they test potential employees to see if they qualify to work for them? I have been in medical transcription for 10 years of which approximately 6 or more years of that has been in radiology. I am very confident in my abilities but get very nervous when it comes to interviews and testing for a new company. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I work for X-press
I have worked for them for a little over two years now. They only hire the best of the best. The downside is no benefits whatsoever. I work part-time. I made just shy of $30,000 in 2005. They have a good reputation as far as their workers go. I thought the test was easy. I was contacted shortly after I sent my test back in and was hired on the spot.
X-press Transcription, Inc.
X-press Transcription, Inc. does only radiology transcription, but I don't know anything about the company itself. They do have a web site though.
Does anybody know if they hire for part-time? Any current info would be appreciated. TIA.
I work for them, they get a lot of bad press
here, not too sure why. I have been there about 2 years, pay on time, no micromanaging, no problems that I have had.
X-Press: The good, the bad and the ugly?
Any recent info appreciated.
Any info on X-press Transcription ? Anyone? TIA - nm
Any information about X-Press Transcription?
Wondering how they do their pay structure? Do you have dedicated accounts? Are they a good company? Their website doesn't offer very much information regarding this. They do specialize in radiology, so I would like to have more information if at all possible. Thank you in advance.
Current information on X-press?
Does anyone have any current information on X-press Transcription? I am currently seeking new employment typing Radiology and would appreciate any and all information available.
Is X-Press Transcription still in business?
I don't get any response to emails and phone number is no longer valid. ???
associated press story - not my opinion
no debate on facts
It's not the kind of press ya want, honey!
Hope you have a happy holiday after this!
Where did you read that press release?
I would like to read it too.
We just had a press release emailed to us. nm
X-Press pays the best, but hard to get into nm
X-PRESS TRANSCRIPTION--CUTTING PAY??
I was thinking about applying for a job with X-Press Transcription but have just heard through the MT grapevine that they cut everyone's pay in the company and did not tell them until after the fact. Is this true or just a rumor? Any advice on working for X-Press? Do they pay on time?
There was a press release and phone conference. nm
X-Press or Keystrokes? Both offer radiology sm
but one is by the line (XP) and the other is by the report (KS). Both do a lot of radiology. Current and past employees of both can you answer these questions:
1. Do you have enough work?
2. Do you like the platform?
3. Do you earn a decent living?
4. What do you specifically like and/or dislike about each?
I am really torn here and need some honest, specific feedback, not the common they're great or stay away. SOS!!
X-Press' website says they have over 400 MTs. Is this true? Your post sm
says a small group of co-workers. I am considering working for them but I am getting conflicting answers, which worries me.
Found link to press release
Well, I already had one company I worked with earlier this year bought by an Indian company and basically left them. Now, we have OSi backed by this family who invests in US and INDIA, of course. I'm going to wait until after my next big vacation and then bye bye OSi.
Is that where they make those press-on fake fingernails?
I'd watch for press releases from SPi, that's how I learned about Cymed's acquisition
Turns out she was just frazzled hiring people. She works there. Sorry about the bad press.
x-press - it's not all that great - heard they are paying late these days also
Trying to get info on Transcription-Express(not X-press Transcription)....
Got a call and am scheduled to be hooked on later this week. Does someone need to stop me? TIA
