You are kidding yourself. OSi is not growing. You cannot grow without

Posted By: MTs. on 2005-08-19
In Reply to: Don't listen! - OSI Employee

OSi wants to be big, but that will never happen because they will not listen to anyone about giving the MTs more instead of putting all the profits into their own pockets. All you get at OSi is your base line rate...that is it. Nothing extra for nights, weekends, holidays. They make you pay for the foot pedal and even the cheap spell checker.

You pretty much said it all when you said that OSi is choosy about who they invite to their parties!! How awful! When most companies have company parties, all employees are invited. That is pretty sad and pretty much says it all about OSi.

    They are growing, growing, growing! The best MT company I have ever worked for!
    Give them a try. 
    It's grow up, not grow-up. Whose grammar/spelling
    are you trying to correct?
    And you really should grow up!
    grow up! nm
    OH GROW UP!!!
    barf barf
    Grow up.
    grow up
    Why do you stay at Amphion if you hate it so much and have such dislike of the people?  Seriously.  Make room for those that had to leave and didn't want to.  You are sitting where they want to be and then complaining about it and trashing them all while calling yourself a quiet mt.  makes no sense to me.  these economic times are hard for everyone, and you cannot keep blaming Amphion for needing to reduce staff, too.
    Oh, grow up!!!
    It's everybody elses' fault, right, that you are making what you made 20 years ago?  Face the fact that clients will not pay big bucks for MT services anymore.  Those days are over!!!
    Grow up?

    Oh so just because clients aren't paying what they used to that means I have to give even more of my money to a subcontractor who is providing a service to me by hiring for other companies.  Quit drinking the Kool-Aid already and catch a clue.  You obviously work for TTD and love being taken advantage of - good grief!  Start your own forum called MTs without a clue and I am sure you and your Kool-Aid friends will have a great time.

    Saint Gourdpainter. Give it a rest.

    Guess what. Most of us already HAVE gone through what the MDI folks are going through now. We just didn't take a week and a billion posts to commiserate about it.

    Seriously, it's not like Huricane Katrina or 9/11 or something.

    It's BUSINESS. **** happenes.


    And I second the motion to move the MDI/Transcend soap operate OFF the company board.

    Oh Grow UP!
    Smoking cigars and drinking brandy?  What did you think you signed up for anyway?  Getting paid lots and lots of money to sit at home?  You get what you put into this.  If you want to get paid hourly, go work in-house.  If you want to get paid by production and have the freedom to work at home, don't expect to make big bucks, expect to make about what you would make working at a retail store.  Sadly, this is just a normal to low paying job now.  Take it or leave it, but give us all a break with the drama.    
    One size does not fit all. Be true to yourself and your abilities.
    why don't you grow up and get a life you troll
    Quit whining and grow up
    So, you were fired from Spheris. Probably because you couldn't cut it. You get 90 days to make your production, and if after 90 days, you aren't producing, they will cut you loose. Why should they keep people like you, who are obviously bitter, and carrying a huge chip on your shoulder, when there are other so-called newbies, with good work ethics who want to work hard, and are willing to put in the time required to get the production required. 3 months is a long time to get used to an account, and build your production. There must have been more to your firing than what you state in your post.

    Hopefully you will find employment elsewhere. But, I would urge you to change your attitude, lose the chip on your shoulder and grow up. Don't blame everything and everyone around you. Take a look at your production, skills, etc. and then ask yourself again, why Spheris let you go.
    My guess - they'll grow until their #1 (sm)
    and with growth comes growing pains.  Yes indeed, check your facts.

    Please grow up! Making a mountain out of a
    I think sooner or later MTs will be forced to grow
    backbones, because as the pay for MT work edges ever closer to 0 cpl, there comes a point where the MT will leave altogether or turn around and start swinging both fists. For quite a long time now, I've believed that the truth is, MTSO's don't really WANT the more costly American MTs. The sooner they can drive us all out, the sooner they'll have the excuse they've been waiting for in order to be able to just pack up and take it all overseas. Companies who actually want to RETAIN good employees just don't treat them the way MTs are treated.
    I have been with KS for a few years now and love it. They grow continuously without sm
    losing accounts, so that is why they are always recruiting. The last information I saw was that they doubled in size between last year and this year and will do so again by this time next year.
    Then they need to stand their ground, grow a spine,
    Wow, grow up. You're a kid yourself with that immature response...nm
    AccuStat now has voice recognition to their software and has a lot of new clients.  I run an MD office that uses AccuStat and we have had no problems ever with this company.  They have been on the ball with all of our needs, no matter how complicated!!  We have over 50 MDs and they all love the company and their flexibility!  The owner is a great lady as well....ignore the bad things you see as they are simply not true about this company!!
    I don't do Rad so I am not sure if they have any or not. They are growing like crazy though, so
    call them and ask. They are usually always hiring. Right now I think they are hiring for Med Rec, Oncology and maybe Rad. Call them and talk to Debbie, my supervisor. She's great.
    Yes, it does, it means we are growing! :)
    Why can't anyone ever see that with a service? Advertising doesn't necessarily mean something negative,it can simply mean there is an increased need for qualified MTs!
    Growing business? nm

    not sure if they're growing but...
    i was with them not long ago and they were wonderful and i never ever ran out of work. staff was all very supportive and friendly, system was nice, line count was awesome, paid on time and accurately, no complaints at all, just couldn't squeeze in enough time to work for them with the other job. great place to work, though, highly recommend.
    They are growing like MAD! This is an awesome
    company. Definitely not overhiring. I have been here almost two months now and I have never been happier with my job. The accounts are good, the people are amazing, from management to tech support and even the general office staff. They treat me incredibly well and many, many others on here say the same.
    Growing with a new group of
    They started a group of hospitals based in TN, and are adding them one at a time during the year.  Lots of ER and acute care positions, we get emails noting the new accounts and added positions. 
    the growing company?
    see details inside, only provides an email response.
    She's still there. They are just growing so fast, they need more (sm)
    many times in office works well for other reasons.
    I am growing tired of this sm
    So I am going to try to end it, here and now. I am sick to death of hearing I am selling myself cheap working for TT. I can sell my services for wherever I care to, for whatever benefits I need/want and for any line rate I want to. Since I am no longer firm enough to sell my body, I can be a flabby MT making what I feel good about making and the job I am doing to get said income. It is not your business to come on here and tell me that I am selling myself cheap, nor to brag about the line rate you get. When asked about whom you work for, suddenly you can't tell, it is all so hush hush. One has to wonder...if you told, would your supervisor get on here and contradict you? Given your grammar and spelling, I can't think you are worth the money you supposedly get paid. Contrary to what others may think, this is job is NOT about getting higher and higher line rates! I have been in this way too long to be talked to like I have fallen off a turnip truck and I don't know a certain orifice from a hole in the ground. PAY DOES NOT INDICATE THE QUALITY OF MT WORK YOU PRODUCE any more than report cards are an indication of learning. I read a lot on here (note the TWO words there). I listen to complaining about QA people and how obnoxious they are, about MTSOs who don't care about their MTs, about running out of work, about unusable platforms, difficult ESLs, falling line rates and lack of benefits. These are the difficulties of being an MT in a marketplace that doesn't value the people element in any job, and in an industry that is rapidly changing. To come to this particular board is to be bombarded not only by all this complaining, but also by constant gloating over a line rate that may or may not exist in reality. The fact is, unless we are all MTSOs with well paying clients, none of us are going to get rich doing this. We are going to pay our bills and we are going to work hard. Line rates are the same as they were 10 years ago and 12 years ago and 15 years ago. If you find a job with 10 cents or better a line, I'll show you a job where the work stinks, the platform is impossible and the person in charge has more psychological issues than an inpatient on a 72-hour hold. I know, because I have worked for a lot of them. Now, I have recently gone to work for TransTech. Sure, I took 8.5 cpl, MY CHOICE, MY DECISION. When I quickly understood that medical benefits would not total $100 a month, and that as an employee, they will cover part of my FICA taxes and that there is PTO that is figured the way it ought to be figured...8.5 cents was looking good to me. I have made 11 cpl and recently (see above). Even simply talking money, that 2.5 cents will not buy me medical insurance on my own. It hardly covered my taxes last year and I had to work a second job. I had West Nile and it didn't pay for the 3 days I missed from work because of it. I ran out of work frequently too. I am concerned about what the rest of you are concerned about. I don't like running out of work. I detest snotty QA people. I, for one, cannot abide the whining from my MTSO that greets me every time I have a technical problem or if I am sick. I don't like that I can't afford to go the doctor without insurance. I'd like to be respected for my experience and hard work too. If I am going to work extra hard, I'd like extra money for it. We who work for Transtech are bragging these past couple of weeks. Why? Because we have joyfully found a place where we can't complain about all of the above issues. We have seen that money, as in higher line rates, isn't the entire picture. We are finding that we are rapidly more productive, lines are easier to get and we have our job satisfaction back. The 10, 11, 12 cents you get, can't buy love. It can't buy satisfaction. It can't buy THE BEST QA team in the business. It can't buy the most gentle, understanding and patient manager I have ever come across XXXX. It can't buy you the thank you for your hard work that I find on EVERY report returned from QA. It can't buy you technical assistance that is on a problem as fast as a duck on junebug. It can't buy the pat on the back that I have gotten from all the QA people every time I have cleared QA on another new account. Now, 10+ cpl can't buy you love, but 8.5 got it for me!
    Not sure what the deal is but the ad said they were growing or something..
    and it also stated in the LOOOOOOOOONG AD that they get someone trained and then start training another person and so on. Almost sounded like they ran an assembly line where they get one MT put together  and scoot her down the line and then get another ready and so forth. Unfortunately, I do not buy that. I think this employer has come up before in discussions and it was not favorable. Also, if you read the ad, you can tell there is a little chip on the shoulders on what she expects from an MT, leaving me to believe she has been less than happy with whom she has hired in the past. In any event, I do love animals but I have NO interest in applying there.
    I figured they were growing, hadn't
    ever seen them advertise until fairly recently.  Makes sense to me, usually if a company grows they have to hire more workers.  Haven't heard of anyone complaining of not having work.
    Gee, could it be they are getting new accounts and growing? Geez
    We are growing. You are a person not a number.
    We have employees in 18 states and have full bennies. Other states ICs and SEs. Pay is decent with incentives. Good team work. Direct deposit every other Friday. Pay is correct and on time.
    They have a couple hundred and are still growing. You are right about it
    feeling like a small company. EVen though they are pretty big I think they really make an effort to not lose what makes them special.
    And the reason the list keeps growing is because...
    these companies know they can get MTs here to correct the poor quality before it gets sent to the client. Talk about cutting our own throats!
    No, that is because Transcend is growing like wildfire!
    We are adding two new accounts a month, and converting others. I am one of the ones that usually helps out on new accounts, so I know.

    Hope everyone on the board had a happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful that I have a place to go to share ideas.
    Geesh. Maybe they're growing. Ever think of that? nm
    The MTSO does it by growing themselves a spine
    instead of constantly trying to undercut the other guy. If all MTSOs stuck together, and charged more across-the-board so that they could pay their workers decent wages, clients would have no choice but to make their cuts elsewhere.

    As long as the MT industry dontinues to delude itself with its gas-station-price-war business practices, they'll continue to shoot themselves in the foot when it comes to not being able to get quality workers, that in turn bring them the quality clients.
    This company definitely belongs on the growing
    Is there any way to get documentation of what, exactly, the 'misconduct' was? It sounds like they're not only being untruthful, they're also being spiteful and vindictive, just because you couldn't meet what was probably an unrealistic daily line minumum on crappy accounts, using substandard software.
    Same here, but hospital jobs are growing fewer SM
    and it seems most people are getting into this to be home with their kids and believe me, old as I am, I completely understand.
    Definitely growth. The company has been growing steadily...sm

    for the past few years.  Good platform, steady pay (direct deposit, have never experienced a late paycheck), good MT support, great bennies.  I'm happy there. 

    Ads all over jobs board because they are growing and need good MTs.
    Three new accounts that I know of recently and more scheduled to come on. Started here as an MT and then moved to QA. Just like any place, there is good and bad but I can't imagine working anywhere else.
    They are constantly advertising because they are GROWING! They have brought on
    two new accounts that I know just since Christmastime and more to come.
    Try TransTech. They are growing like crazy and are hiring a ton of MTs
    right now. I'm sure they could accommodate a weekend only schedule. They are great to work for. You can e-mail them at jobs@transtechmedical.com
    Still growing, just controlled growth. We would rather take care of what sm
    we have and make sure that it is smooth than take on too much at once and have the problems that so many companies run into that bite off more than they can chew.

    Tip: This is not the only place to advertise for openings. We have ads in other places right now and have openings for multispecialty clinics, orthopaedics, radiology and just had contracts signed for a new acute care account that will need staffing.
    India has one of the largest growing economies in
    Company has been steadily growing, great bennies,...

    I've never had a late paycheck.  Pay is very competetive, PTO, holiday pay etc. I believe there is more than one platform on which to transcribe - depending upon the account.  I work on the main platform - not glitchy for me.  No problems reaching my line count.  I'm quite content there, no plans on leaving.

    For every single company out there, you'll find happy employees and not happy ex-employees. Deciding on an employer is a hard decision to make.  Good luck with your choice, no matter what it ends up being.
