Phoenix Medcom - Posted By: need to know

Is anyone out there currently working for Phoenix Medcom? Is your experience with the company good? I know they don't pay for spaces, but do the headers and footers REALLY make up for it not being paid for spaces? What type of platform do they use? Is it user friendly? Thanks so much!

Has anyone ever heard of Terra Nova Transcription or work there. - Posted By: PAMT


Technologies - Posted By: SMALL MT CO

I am a small MT company that has been blessed with a fabulous MT and QA team.  Recently I sat down and looked at every paycheck sent out from our payroll vendor.  I was really shocked at what I found.  I think a more appropriate term would be embarrassed.  This team works harder than any group I have ever seen and manages to push more than a million lines a month.  Can anyone suggest any technologies that would help increase volume without any additional effort on their part?  I have been looking into Dragon Speak as a way to increase volume assuming they would be primarily editing not transcribing and the accuracy states close to 99%.  Any comments?

Honest is the best policy!! - Posted By: Tired

I have been going through company after another that continue to hide the truth about their accounts.  For example, ATSI is posting again for a large hospital account.  Guess what!!  The recruiter did not tell the truth.  They hired MTs and guess what, when the MTs got a taste of that large hospital account, they all quit and ATSI is posting again for the same hospital.  ATSI is paying 8 cpl for this horrid, horrid hospital account.  Plenty of gastly ESLs with samples emailed to you.  You cannot pull any prior reports.  Why not tell MTs the truth, offer them more money to work on these accounts and allow them all the time in the world to get to know them. Why keep posting advertisements and MTs take the bait, when they find out the truth they quit.  Honesty is the best policy, why not give it a try.

Transcend VR - Posted By: KM

I have been approached by Transcend for a position.  The rate for VR is better than some, less than others.  I am told that some people are doing 10,000 lines per week, but that doesn't come out to much biweekly when insurance costs are figured in.  I am also told the account is mainly ESLs.  Is there anyone on here actually working for this company who can tell me what actual line counts you are making per week on average, if the new and improved platform is really that, how your workload is, etc.?  

TSSC, LLC - Posted By: needachange

Any math wizards out there that can help..Based on a 65 character line, - Posted By: luvmting

if you were not paid for spaces, what would 11 cpl (w/o) equal? It sounded good, but when I did the math it was lower than 8 cpl with spaces? I hope I'm not right.

Sorry I know people have asked this before but I couldnt remember answer.

Looking for decent company - Posted By: Steph

I'm looking for a decent national company. It's really important that they provide the computer since mine is ancient and they accept satellite internet because I live in rural Maine and that's all available here. I support a 4-person household and really need a company that's dependable. I was looking in Webmedx, Transcript USA, and Transcription Relief Services. Anyone know anything about any of those. Not interested in Diskriter, Transcend, JLG, Spheris, or Precyse. Oh also, are all the companies going to ASR now? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Beware of Transolutions. sm - Posted By: lanesmom

I recently tested with Transolutions and they called me yesterday offering a job.  When I questioned them about what pay they were offering me, she said that the first 2 weeks were 12.00 an hour and then after that it was based on my speed and accuracy.  So, they could tell me I'm making 5 cpl?  I don't know if they are legit or not, but it sounds kind of fishy to me.  Sounds like a bait and switch type of deal.  Just wanted to let you all know in case some were considering this company like I was.  Just make sure you get in writing what your pay will be BEFORE you accept a job!

Golden Isles Medical Transcription, any info appreciated, TIA!!nm - Posted By: MI-MT


Does TransTech give bonuses or anything?? - Posted By: MT4eight

I got a strange deposit in my bank account and I can't figure out where it came from. My paycheck from them is in there and then there is a separate deposit from somewhere. Just maybe fantasizing that it might be a bonus? Anyone know? Or am I just dreaming.

pay raise - Posted By: frustrated

I posted a message last night on the main board and it got deleted, so I'm posting here.  I have been in transcription for 10 years.  I have been working the past 2 years with a certain company.  I asked for a raise and went from .085 to .0875.  I felt like I got slapped in the face.  I work my scheduled hours without taking a lot of time off, meet and exceed the minimum line requirements, had a 98% on QA, work extra when asked, and after 2 YEARS all I get is a .0025 raise???!!!!  I'm thankful that I got a raise at all, but this is ridiculous.  It's offensive actually.  It makes me feel like I'm not valued at all.  I was hoping to at least get .09.  Am I overreacting? Should I jump ship and try to find something better?  I'm afraid to gripe about it to the company as I'm a single mom of 2 and don't want to lose my job.  Any advice?

Of course I procrastinated to attend the call on my day off, then off I went with my daughter shopping.

OSI not hiring in certain states - Posted By: Curious

Has anyone else ever had OSi contact them back to say they are not hiring MTs from their state?  Does this seem like discrimination?  Isn't that kind of like we aren't hiring Caucasians at this time?
