Here is the good, the bad and the ugly. sm
I left KS a few months ago after having a near nervous breakdown. I had too much going on in my life and thought that it would be better to go work in a hospital.

The Good: They are growing, have very stable accounts and keep all their customers. Pay is on time and there is direct deposit. The rules have become clear in what is expected of you. They are very personal.

The Bad: The insurance is terrible and expensive but I heard they are getting BC/BS in the fall for sure. The pay used to be late here and there for a few days. It is fixed now and has been for a very long time. The growth caused some changes that did not work and more changes were made to correct the problems caused, which seemed like chaos from the outside looking in.

The Ugly: They went through some terrible growing pains a few years ago and have been dodging bullets from former employees. There were late checks and no direct deposit. There was not a lot of work because they overhired.

The diagnosis: Once they got over the hump several months ago, things evened out and have been for a while. I want to go back but I'm afraid they won't take me.

How do I know all this? My best friend still works there and is very, very happy. I made a mistake leaving but now my life is on an even keel. I made a lot of money there.
DRC good, bad, ugly?
Any info i.e. are they good to work for or anything would be appreciated.
99% good, No Bad, No Ugly ... sm
Except for a short period of time when work ran low on one account only my experience has been 99% good. No place is perfect, but I have absolutely no complaints. The people treat me like a human being, I love the platform, the sound quality is great, they pay the long distance bill, the benefits are superior. Best move I ever made.

the good, bad, and ugly

I was wondering if anybody out there would be willing to give the good and bad about what company they work at, or used to work at.  I'm trying to figure out who it would be worthwhile to send resumes to and who I should just stay away from.  I'm interested in the management, scheduling, line requirements, pay rate, benefits, and provided equipment.  I'd greatly appreciate any info you have.  Thanks!

MTS of Texas..the good, the bad, and the ugly..sm
Good:  Pay on time, but the amount is almost always incorrect.  Bad & Ugly:  Pay by the minute.  Owners will tell you it equals out to be the same as being paid by the line.  NOT.  They use Meditech - a very antiquated version of it.  QA dept. is laughable (i.e., close enough, just leave it out).  Little to no IT support.  Owner recently sold the company to her son.

Any personal experiences with Northeast Transcription; good, bad or ugly?nm
My experience was UGLY. Very ugly.
Just keep your other job until you're sure....good luck.
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!
??? X-PRESS???

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?

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.
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!!
