how long have you been working
for spheris? j/w
Happy working at home
I love working at home for a hospital. I don't have to share work station, books, equipment with anyone. You have to teach family and friends that you are really and truly working, and to leave you alone during work hours. It's easy to allow intrusions but set rules from the start.
I had to work in the hospital med rec/MT department for a month and while I enjoyed the people, I hated being there in a windowless dingy room. At home, you create your own work environment. My two coworkers at home are two cats who keep me company. Good luck!
I didn't get anything, but I'm happy just working for them. nm
OSI--Anyone happy working there? If so, can I ask you a few questions?
I am thinking of applying as they have a good sign-on bonus and the benefits look really good. Could you tell me what their platform is, easy to make money, cost of insurance, and are they flexible or do you have set schedule and they freak if your not working at that very moment. Thanks for any help.
They seem to have happy people working for them
I too sent in a resume a couple weeks ago and did a search and saw mostly very positive posts. I did that related posts thing that the other poster describes and it worked really well.
I figured they are probably swamped with applications if the number of people I have seen post that they really want to work there is correct. :)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!! To those of working and those of us not. (sm)
I am up and at it early, having our Thanksgiving dinner at 5:30 so turkey can cook while I make some much needed Xmas money.
Hope you all have a good one.
I started out very happy with them, now I am not so sure, long story.
I am also long-term happy here; nothing is perfect but sm
Webmedx is working for me, has worked for me about 8 yrs now; next best thing to my previous hospital job.
Not at all. I'm very gleefully happy NOT working at Medware.
My company rocks! Just because I don't like Big Brother breathing down my throat and overwhelming me with unimportant distractions makes me unhappy? Uh, don't quit your day job.
Yes! Working for CyMed and quite happy. No jumping
from account to account. The rare times I run out of work, there is other work available, but that's the only account jumping. Platform wonderful! People great! Tech support fantastic! I made more money years ago, but I have found that is a universal problem with MTing. Overall, I'm very pleased.
may be good now, wait until they Global your account, too. I left there long ago, happy I did. nm
The key is working multiple accounts. Three months is hardly long enough to get a handle sm
on the job. Maybe better to keep a parttime job until you are up to speed on the new job. I haven't run out of work in almost a year (and that was only for a few minutes), but I do multiple accounts. Great company, great people. Nice bennies.
No problem :) No matter how long, it is too long for me - I am broke the day after payday. Kids wi
do that to you!
I know that they have worked very hard to make sure that checks are never late and I can say that in the past two years, I have had one problem (2 days late) and in the past 18 months, they have all been on payday and perfect.
I know that there are a lot of hard feelings in MT in general. I also know firsthand (and I am not mgmt) how hard KS has worked to get things going good.
I would not want to walk in an MTSO's shoes for any amount of money, but that's just me. I like to finish my work for the day, forget about work when not working and get paid on payday. I never want the other things that go with mgmt or owning a company of any kind :)
They definitely rip you off with your line count. Figured this out long ago and quit long ago
Happy New Year. May we all have happy home lives (sm)
and do whatever it takes to make our work lives work for us too.
Ditto.. Over 13 years experience working in hospitals doing all types of reports, currently working
for a national etc.. and Spheris told me I didnt have the qualifications. What cracked me up was the hospital I was working at at the time contracted some of our work out to them.. What a joke..I was good enough to work for a hospital and gave them work, yet not qualified enough for them. What is wrong with this picture.
MQ same situation. No pay for working holidays, no pay for working weekends nothing. Now noone works
much anymore and so they jerk the work out of the accounts to some place that throws it back with a lot of bad bad quality. This is the NE region. I dont know what the others are doing.
What really sucks is that I looked for a LONG, long time -sm
before joining DRC - wanted a highly reputable, not-too-big co. that was LOCAL, and that treated its MTs humanely. I'm very happy with DRC & had planned to stay with them permanently.
Right and told we should be happy we have jobs. Not too happy right now.
MDI Maryland HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY
THIS IS NOT MDI IN NY OR FL!!
I can't say enough nice things about this company; very flexible, you area a statutory employee. That means that they pay the employer portion of your SS. Great on time pay, tons of work. Do your lines and you are left alone! Expect to be responsible though. Pay for your phone; rent a Lanier or a C-phone if you don't have one; BayScribe platform. Anything that is a bit of an inconvenience is more than made up for. You will know to the minute how much you will make and how many lines you have typed. Check it out!
Long, long history of not paying...and
similar posts have been made here in the past few months. Everyone thinks they will be different, and then they end up coming back here to warn others that they don't pay.
working from home is awesome but working for DSG is not...
horrible dictators, sound quality is bad, no answers to emails and they run out of work consistently...that is just my experience though...
but those were long, long lines for
most of the reports. You could make more with a 65-character line count.
Positive experience for me. Two years later, still happy, still busy, still meeting 300+ lines an hour. To each his own... guess it's jump on Diskriter is crap band wagon again day. On any given day, one company or another is being ripped a new one on these sites.
Probably one of the best. I'm happy there.
Happy with QT and FCM!!! nm
I am very, very happy at OSi. I left a company where I had been a IC for over 8 years and went with OSi as an employee. I have had no regrets. I think some people say QA is snooty because they expect a job to be done right and often times it isn't. We have access to all reports typed on our accounts and to tell you the truth, it's amazing how some of these MTs got hired.
I love the platform, pay is always on time and often incentives create huge paychecks. They are very professional and very flexible. No cons as far as I can see.
That's cause we are happy!!
Why do you want to bash anyway,let's talk about good things
I am happy too
There are some that still like Transcend. i understand that others have valid complaints, but not everyone there experiences the same issues. Some of us are really telling the truth when they say they are happy.
Happy for you.
I hope you like your new job. I have been contemplating applying with them myself but worried about their flexibility.
YAY!!! I am so happy for you. Out of (sm)
all the places I have worked, they really are the best!! For many,many reasons!!
Yep and happy about it!
Yes I make 1 cent less than what FOCUS would hire me on for at their top pay. In exchange I get to work with an amazing company who treats me with respect, knows who i am, who my children are, listens to what i have to say and so much more. It is worth the cent to work for a great company.
Happy to Mad?
so have you changed your attitude about MQ? this is exactly what MQ doesn't want to happen -- MTs being able to find out what is going on in different offices, wage-wise and otherwise.
ARE YOU HAPPY THERE?
Can you be hired on as SE?
Sweetheart, you have no business releasing your venom on me. You are one with the mental health issue. If you were indeed a "Happy OSI'er," you would not care what anyone else thinks or says about that company.
The fact that you can get enraged so easily when other people express opinions contrary to your own tells me that you are indeed in need of a little Zoloft, Xanax, or maybe just a good dose of reality. The rest of the world doesn't have to agree with you about anything. It does not make us dysfunctional, depressed, unhappy, or stupid. It just means we see things differently.
You're in for a rough ride in life if you are get so upset about others' opinions.
Yes Cbay is still around and going strong, more work than I can handle lately. They do hire US MTs. Everyone knocks them for sending work overseas but what company doesn't these days? I am very happy with them and pay is on time every 2 weeks! They pay my bills so I really wouldn't care if they sent the work to the moon!
Is anyone happy...
Please leave some info on this board if you are happy working for OSI. There is a lot of negative, but it may be some sour grapes too. I would like to hear some good input about the company. Thanks.
With OSi for about 3 yrs. Very happy now with
It is great working with true medical transcription professionals.
OSi is good for a laugh, though!
I am very happy with OSi
You will read a lot of negativity, but this is something that you will have to decide on your own. I am very happy there. Sure, they aren't perfect, but no company is. Let me know if you want more information.
I'm happy as can be -
Happy because . . .
I have 2 good accounts with steady work, love BayScribe, like my team leader, and good pay that is always on time. I do agree with the above poster who says she feels they may be overhiring on some accounts to keep them in TAT. However, I haven't seen overstaffing on my accounts (yet)!
Don't work on MANTIS but this company is really, really growing by leaps and bounds - even made the Fortune 500 top growing companies in the US. Great people (really nice) and a refreshing change from the Big Guys. Pay is generally $1.10 regular and $2.25 special - really nice accounts too. Check 'em out!
She's not alone. I'm happy there, too. sm
I'm FT and don't utiize the benefits, but I'm very happy at Spheris. My platform is easy to use, my supervisor is awesome, and the other girls are great. I don't have a hard time getting time off, and they pretty much leave me alone to do my work, but if I need help, they have terrific people at the help desk. Most Spheris employees are very happy here, but we just don't spend a lot of time of message boards.
Wake up MTs. Change is good. Why is everyone so afraid to go somewhere else? If you are not happy, you can only make yourself happy. LEAVE. Do not wait for these nationals or other MT companies to make you happy. They won't. You must do it yourself. I'm happy after the change I made. You can be too. Just go for it. What do you have to lose?
Also very happy with MDI-MD nm
Happy as an IC
Very happy with QT! nm
me too, happy
Another happy DSG MT!
So far, no complaints!
Happy at QT also
Happy with them
I go an 11 cent per 65-character line with spaces included job from them. Very flexible. The hiring process was a lot easier than going it on your own. I was VERY happy with my experience there...this was 2-1/2 years ago. Maybe things have changed. They get a one-time fee, not a portion of your line rate.
