I've worked for TH for a long time, have taken sick time, and have never been fired for it. Ridiculous.

Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
PTO, sick pay, paid holidays, benefits include...sm
Medical, dental, vision, drug coverage. Great company. I like my accounts. Plenty of work.
Great pay, great benefits for 11+ years..sm
I've just started with this great company (eMTS). I have 11+ years of experience and I was started at .10 per line as a regular employee, not IC, with a huge sign-on bonus, full benefits, very nice people, and a good account. So far, this is the best experience I've had in my years as a transcriptionist. Unfortunately, I don't believe they're hiring more right now, but you could always check in with them, they're online at eMTS.com. The management seems to really care and they work with you.
No more great benefits. Only if you are
Benefits don't sound that great to me.
They may be better than some, but certainly not great.
$15-18 is great, but what if ya' need health benefits?
Sometimes those premiums can be pricey in private practice. Not what the OP asked, but just adding by 2 cents.
Great benefits don't help if the work isn't there.
It's been a while and maybe they've gotten better. The recruiter at the time was less than above-board with me. Try to find current employees to talk to.
They are able to offer great benefits...
because they do more than just transcription. And, for clarification, my posts are referring to the supervisor to whom the MTs report directly. Ms. Nasty-for-no-reason-at-all.
Webmedx is great for me; good benefits, sm
PTO, reasonable insurance cost. Plenty of work, decent platform (although we had some trouble last week but that's rare). I realize one company can't be right for everyone, but Webmedx has been great for me. 8 years and counting.
I bet the benefits aren't so great anymore.
Everywhere business are taking a hit and passing it on to their employees. Good insurance now at a company is one where you aren't spending more than $300 a month and you have just co-pays or a very small deductible.
Wages are frozen, people being fired for budget costs, everyone's doing two or more jobs and getting paid for one.
It would probably be a big blow to go back for a lot of people. The work place isn't the way it used to be anymore. Sad.
They had great benefits and little work. I lasted three
Great benefits, plenty of work, pay on time
Depending on experience, slightly above-average pay. I used to be with a company where I would have given my right arm for those few simple things. As for the posts below regarding line count, IF this (or any other concern) was affecting my work, there's a new invention called a telephone that comes in handy when wanting to address concerns (and their phone number is on their website).
Seem to have great benefits, which start after a month of employment. sm
Pay is so-so, level III 8 cpl, level IV 8.5 cpl, level V (high ESL) 9 cpl. Everyone seems very friendly and helpful.
Transhealth is very organized, great benefits..horrible platform
Maybe it was just me but i never made it through training. It certainly could have been a lot easier than having to open up 3-4 programs to get going. I found it to be time-consuming and in a production-based atmosphere, this did not cut it. On the other hand, maybe others think the program is wonderful, but I sure did not. I have used Dictaphone EXText and that is way easier.
TransHealth has great benefits, PTO, paid holidays for fulltimers. nm
Hourly pay, great benefits, schedule depends upon which accounts...sm
you are QAing. Solid company. Good luck!
Great office staff, okay pay, no benefits, horrible ESL all accounts...NM
My hubs retired as a fire captain. Great benefits, thank God! nm
Gotta agree -- YOG was the best! Great pay, good benefits. I quit sm
the moment I heard she had sold to MQ .. ugh.
Great company -- good benefits, average pay, easy-to-achieve sm
incentive tier, ExText platform, pay by direct deposit every 2 weeks, always on time. The people in management seem to genuinely care about the employees, which is a nice plus. I have been there since October and am very happy. Of course, one man's paradise is another man's hell it seems at times, but it is a good fit for me.
Good company, great people, good benefits.
Affordable insurance. Good luck!
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
What the ____? He sent you a picture - what a psycho!
Tell me more!
They said they have sick time. What's up with that?
GET SIck, WHY DON'T YA?!
I think MT work is seasonal anyway....people will always get sick, but the time of year can affect how often and how quick people decide to go to the doctor. Plus, if it's surgery or other procedures, if people can plan when to do them, they probably haven't picked June or July - when many people are on vacation, or grandkids are coming to visit....
What is sick is that there may be SM
about 15 total people in the QA world doing this, but they hold a minimum of 30 jobs and it could be up to 50 jobs between those 15 people and that is just working for nationals!
For all of you QA people out there wondering where the jobs are, that's your answer. I wish these companies could cross-check with their competitors to match names, they'd be really surprised at what is going on out there.
so sick of seeing these ads....
It makes me wanna vomit after a good laugh. All these IC positions, stating you MUST work this. You MUST do that. I'm so glad I have 2 jobs that are true IC positions. Of course I need to work to live, and I'm not lazy, but other than that, I do what I want, when I want, and how long I want. I am asked to help if can-NOT told. I do not get threats of being let go. These companies make me so sick.
And I'm getting really sick of
some of the people on this board (some, not all) jerking my emotions around. I have a conference call looming on my schedule for less than 4 hours from now, and I haven't got a clue what it will be about. And after reading this board this morning I am all but sick to my stomach with worry that it might mean I have to start job-hunting all over again.
Me too, sick of getting ripped off by SS
on a daily basis. My lines at Softscript for the last 3 weeks since the server issue have dropped drastically. I guess they think we cannot do math and only type.
feeling sick too!
I just wonder how many people here are just here to stir the pot and make everyone feel sick and scared and paranoid about their jobs?
feeling sick too!
Actually, I don't work for OSi, but work for another National that is always bashed on here. Things are changing here too and not very positive things are being said about changes and I was just making a general statement about people who like to make others feel paranoid about situations. But, I'm trying to look at it this way, there are thousands of MTs employed by my company and there are only a few here who are doing the bashing, so I'm trying to stay positive, but still a little afraid!!
Universal sick day
Been reading the posts about having an MT strike. I agree with the comments about companies getting worse instead of better as far as paying IC and other transcriptionists. We should just have a universal sick day (just one day) and see what chaos this causes. May be it does not even have to be the whole day, just a couple of hours.
Anyone sick of Amphion??
I am sick of no work...I am sick of having to flex my time...I am sick of being accused of not making my line counts when they don't have work...I am sick of being a transcriptionist!
Sick of transcription
I, too, am SICK to almost being dead from being a transcriptionist, but being the only income for 4 people, stuck in the game.
SICK of this stuff
About TransTech! They are the finest people in the business. They would never do anything in a suspicious or ill mannered method involving line counting or anything else! One might suggest if you work more and post less you would see a better line count. It takes time to build up to a good line count, i.e. becoming familiar with the facility, with the authors, with the work types, building your word expander, and working diligently towards obtaining your goals, doing what it takes to achieve the line count goals you set for yourself, turning every stone in effort to achieve those goals before suggesting the line counts are not correct. If the ESL are difficult, look at samples, invest in becoming more familiar with their way of speaking English. As far as EXTText for Word Client/Transnet/Dictaphone, I love the software. Again from time to time, there may be issues, but for the most part, the software if very geared to good production for the MT. I hope that all who read the posts about Transtech will be mature enough to make your decision by your own experience and not the experience of others. I have been with TransTech for 4 years, and I am not saying everything is wonderful, we have our ups and downs which are almost always me and not them........but in all honesty they are the finest company with the best group of people I have ever worked with and for! Thank you for reading my 2 cents on the line count saga!
I'm sick of set shifts as an IC.
THEN getting constant IMs to work when I'm supposed to be 'off'. If you want me at your beck and call you better be giving me benefits!
So sick of oversears.
Thanks for the feedback :-)
This makes me sick
I gues they are no different than anyone else
Sick and tired
Vent away! At least those of us on this board understand.
you about making me sick....
You better be careful not to offend anyone who does clinic notes (and this is coming from someone who does acute care and clinic notes). People apply for positionS where they feel they will be quality productive. After all, it is quality these companies want from US MTs is it not? If you feel those who do clinic notes do not value their skill, you are very IGNORANT/ARROGANT!!!! Please explain who you are that you can judge an MT's smarts/skills by the specialty they do. How idiotic are you?? YOU MAKE ME SICK AND I REALLY HATE GLORIFIED MTs!!! UGH UGH!!
YOU KNOW WHAT? I am sick to death of your s/m
comments after every little post or question that anyone DARES to put on this board!
Yes, please go ahead and repsond in the most childish way possible (and I know you will, as that is all you know how to do, apparently). Obviously, after your continuous verbal abuse to almost every poster on here who dared to disagree with you (yesterday), you get your jollies off of belittling anyone you can get a hold of.
Now, if anyone else on here who is over the age of 12 would like to respond to this post in a helpful manner, please feel free. If you don't know the answer to my question, then just don't reply. Not that difficult, is it?
You, SIR, are immature and should move on from this board because you have nothing constructive to say whatsoever.
In all honesty, I feel sad for anyone (like you) who lives their life as you do on a daily basis. You must feel good about yourself each night when you lay your head on your pillow, after a day of insulting and berating. What an accomplishment. Get a life.
If you choose to respond in your usual scathing manner, please do. It will only solidify the opinion that many of us here likely hold about you. Here's your chance to really show all of us worthless and incapable human beings how tough you really are. The stage is yours.
For the record, I currently earn over 10 cents per line as an employee. Not a wimp, not weak, not ignorant. Sorry to burst your bubble.
Sick of nationals
Do not rule out larger private practices. I worked acute care for 13 years and then was outsourced. Then I spent 1 1/2 years messing around with Nationals and then found a position with a large orthopedic practice, 50+ docs. Very good benefits and I do work from home, though working from home was not an issue for me. With experience, these jobs are out there but you have to be willing to jump on them when they come up. Good luck.
I know this is a dumb question, but I am considering testing for them. So, when you are sick or want to take off, you schedule it with your supervisor right? Then, it goes unpaid right? Are they pretty flexible regarding time off?
I guess if I need a vacation, I would need to save up money for it. How does it work for you?
Please excuse any typos.
I'm sick of psych
I'll email you my company info when I find another job...
sick and inundated
The person who does that has been sick and she is inundated with applicants. She is working through them. Please be patient.
makes me sick
What other industry would possibly be paying its employees the same (or even lower!) wages than they were paying 15 years ago??? I remember new employees getting paid 8.5 cpl back in 1995!!!!!!!!!
Using an inflation calculator: What cost $8.5 in 1995 would cost $11.90 in 2008.
Meaning that, without any raises for merit (yeah, a joke, right) the MT making 8.5 cpl in 1995 should now be making 11.9 cpl JUST TO BREAK EVEN with inflation!!!
A travesty for sure.
The big question is: Are you and other MTs sick
Sick at Spheris. . .
Really, I think I'm going to have a nervous breakdown working here. Crappy platform (Cornerstone), poor management, lousy everything. Been here 8 years. Would leave if I wouldn't be retiring in a year (if I make it to then). Run away from this company if you value your sanity.
sick of Transcend
I cannot speak first-hand to issues at Transcend because I have never worked there and never will. However, a colleague of mine, an experienced MT of 30 years (and former MTSO) took a job there and quickly left. She said it was a nightmare and she is the kind of person who could handle anything. I was kind of surprised that she did not last but she told me that no matter what, never take a job there. That is just her opinion, of course, but it kind of scared me.
Also, I am sick of getting the NSA prompt, often
after being told things are getting better as far as work volume goes. I had to fight for a 3rd acct after WX lost 2 of my old ones. They refuse to assign a 4th. Why don't they just level with us? Being told this is seasonal is insulting and blatantly not true. I suppose they just overhire and could care less if we make a paycheck or not.
