I have been working for Gulf Coast since February.  I absolutely love this company!  Yes, all positions are IC, so of course no benefits.  However, I find the company to be so friendly and so helpful.  They bend backwards for you; whatever, you need the make sure you have it.  I am transcribing ER notes currently.  I would refer anyone to this company.  They are absolutely great!

Gulf Coast Transcription
I worked for them several years ago. Very small, friendly company and pay was always on time, but have not seen anything recently about them looking for transcriptionists. At the time I worked for them, the account that I was on was just going internet, but we still used a C-phone. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I have worked for GCT for 3 years!  We use SoftMed and Chartscript via the internet.  There is always plenty of work (two major hospitals and plenty of private groups/practices), and, if, for some reason, you run out, they are more than happy to assign more work to you.  Pay is bi-monthly (direct deposit) and on time!  Pay scale is comparable!  Owners are very friendly and down to earth, very willing to work with you!  Office staff is very friendly.  Editors/Trainers are very friendly.  This is a great company to work for. 

Gulf Coast Transcription

Saw some gab a few days ago on GCS (poster was happy GCTer or something like that) and would like some info if anyone can help. 

When you say they have plenty of work, do you mind my asking how many lines you do per day/week? Also, what are they paying cpl? If you don't want to tell me exactly what they are paying you, would you just give me a range?

Also, do they work with you well when you want to take time off or need a sick day?

Thanks for the help!

I know Gulf Coast Transcription will consider it

I just found out today that they offshore.  I didn't realize this.

I currently work for Gulf Coast
and absolutely love it!  I have been with them for a year and a half.  I believe they are trying to hire for nights and weekends, as we are needing the coverage for these shifts to meet our TAT.

Does this company have heavy ESL? Do you have plenty of work, what kinds of platforms do they have and is pay per line decent? Any info would help. I checked their website and there is not a whole lot of information.

Looking for information on Gulf Coast Transcription sm
I know all positions are IC.  Just looking for some information from someone working for them or who has worked for them..  Thanks.
Gulf Coast Transcription--any advice?
I submitted an application with Gulf Coast Transcription and was invited to test, which I did. However, that was over 2 weeks ago and I have not had any response. I sent a follow-up email approximately a week ago and still have not heard back. I am very interested in this company, as I have experience with ChartScript and prefer to work IC. However, I am wondering why I have not heard back from them. Even a reply letting me know they are not hiring right now or are not interested would be preferable to no reply at all. There was a telephone number included in the email they sent inviting me to test. I am thinking about calling but do not want to seem too pushy. If anybody has gone through their hiring process and has any insight, I sure would appreciate it. Also, if anyone has any particulars about the line rate, any incentives or shift differentials, etc., I would appreciate that, as well. Please feel free to email me. Thanks!

Website gctfl.com. Heard they were pretty good.
Anyone working for Gulf Coast Transcription of Florida?
Any and all info appreciated.  Thanks!
Any info on Gulf Coast Transcription in Florida?
Given job offer.  Must admit it is tempting to tell MQ where to put it, but I don't want to go from bad to worse.  Any feedback??
Especially with the east coast/west coast difference
lmao!! yeah maybe I'm the recruiter...suggesting that my co-worker is the problem. yeah that make
Yeah, yeah, I spelled health wrong -
I am very angry right now and my fingers are taking it out on the keyboard.
Thanks - I'm on the East Coast too
I'll have to look around here some more.  Thanks.
On the West Coast
I heard the term typing monkeys, too. Wouldn't surprise me if it were used all throughout the company, they had so little respect for us. I just thought it was an LA thing, but evidently not.
W. Coast is a lot of Asian. nm
That sounds about right for East Coast!
So, now you see that the MTSOs don't really make that much off of us!!!!  Maybe we should thank our lucky stars!! 
Not just CA - east coast here and 100K is not all that much
for a couple to make. Many married couples I know make around that it and are just scraping by.
East coast MT/MEs? Saw Futurenet's ad (sm)
and was just curious as to why they have to live on the east coast.  Client preference?  Time zones? 
Is this ESL account on the west coast? nm
They advertised for east coast ME.
That's what I applied for. I have a FT job too, just want part-time ME at night to give my fingers a rest.
Hey girl, greetings from the northwest coast of Fla. sm
did you take that ASR test yet? I know Spheris has a few new accounts coming on board too but I don't think you'd want to go back to that. Cornerstone was not my cup of tea but loved TWS. If something isn't broke, don't fix it.
I think I figured it out. Is this person on the east coast? nm
East Coast, drawl, cobbler. n/m
It is a West Coast account. Rather not mention names. nm

She and her husband run the account. 

Today is the last day for a large hospital on the East Coast.
No doubt about it.
Yeah, yeah, AND enjoy!

Yeah - n,
Yeah! Take That!
I like OSi too!!!
Yeah let's go there.
yeah right.
come on, every time some MT posts this type of problem, there is always the same response back from KS.  Like you don't think they have sent email after email and call after call trying to get things taken care of or get help?  Please.  You don't think that we have the number and haven't called a million times?  This is all just for show.
Yeah, sure!!! Like we believe you!

I also am very happy with my employment at OSi.  I think it is a great company, one that listens to the needs of their employees and does their best to accomodate.  It is pitiful to read how so many bash OSi and other companies on this board and you don't even work for them.  If you have in the past and have found employment elsewhere, move on and knock off the infernal complaints.  If you are employed with the company you are complaining about, then find a new job.  We don't need or want your constant bantering.  And if you are still employed here, that tells us you obviously aren't good enough to get a job elsewhere.

Yeah. RUN, RUN, RUN,
There are much better jobs out there.
yeah but
I would be typing all night.
well, you know.
Yeah for you!
Good to know there is life after MTing.
Yeah, I know what you mean

about the taxes and sure can't blame you there.

I hope you can reconnect and get the job with him, though.  If more docs start to realize what's happening and leave the companies that do the outsourcing, that will send a huge message to these companies.  Might also force them to treat their American employees better.

In the age of terrorism, I don't see how it CAN'T be a security issue to outsource medical transcription, especially to middle eastern countries.  Think about it.  Besides access to the obvious personal demographics of the patient, they also know which medications the patient is taking.  With the way elderly people order medications from Canada, I can just imagine an elderly person getting an ad in the mail for the medication they're on at less than half the price, order it and wind up dead.  It seems that large groups of Americans could be targeted and harmed based simply on their medical information.  (Maybe my imagination is running wild, but I never could have imagined that anyone would think to use a plane as a missile to kill a large group of people, either.) 

yeah, but . . .
what about all the employees of some of these companies who are being told to be patient while work returns to normal after the holidays, yet have been virtually w/o an income for weeks now. This shouldn't be happening consistently in the winter months, holidays or not. What rights do those people have as far as any compensation? They're being left hanging in the balance with no way to pay the bills and yet not being given the option of collecting unemployment benefits because they're still technically on the payroll. How far is this going to go before people stop accepting the obvious? It saddens me to no end to see companies treating their long-time loyal employees this way.
Yeah right. I just bet you do.
Oh yeah
I have been with a smaller MTSO (about 100 MTs) since leaving MQ. I love having the QA that I never got at MQ, but what bugs me is that when I send in a blank or a flag, they answer not only me, but everyone on the whole darn QA team (okay, there are only 4), plus the president of the company.

Now, come on, if I'm just asking for a second listen on a cc doc (new account), do you really need to copy the Prez on that one?
