ExecuScribe: Archives mixed...sm - Posted By: si

In response to my query on MT Stars, an Execuscribe recruiter contacted me inviting me to take their online test.  I decided to search the archives for info about this company before going through the testing process.  The result was mixed reactions, but mostly positive.  Can anyone out there give me any current info on this company?  For one thing, do they still require you to have a C-phone?  Thanks in advance for your help!

Test taking - Posted By: Oh so tired

I have just taken a test that must be designed to get into medical school with all of the choose the correct, fill in the blank and give the definition, was sooo..long.... and so intense, and why do we have to take 5 voice tests, don't they understand if you can do one or two, you must know what you are doing? Just tired I guess trying to find a good fit after doing this for 20 years.

Webmedx - Not Everyone Is A Happy Camper.... sm - Posted By: just another MT

For the last few days I've been reading a lot of posts about Webmedx; some good, some bad. I work there part time now, as full time was turning out not to be worth my time. And now this morning I received an email about "cherrypicking". And there are a lot of cherrypickers at this company. Believe me I have seen it!!!


I read one post where the MT was oh so happy to be with Webmedx for 8 years; then read a reply by another MT questioning her status within the company. I agree 100% that she is more than likely management or close to management. There are not that many MTs at Webmedx that have 8+ years with the company. Webmedx also made some changes within management, as I got that email the other day. It does seem as though they are more interested in the $$$$$$$$$$$$ than the MTs that work for them.


They also do not answer your emails in a timely manner. Every time I have a question, it is days before I get an answer. And, I'd like to know why some MTs say they have a flexible schedule?? Not true at all! Even being part time I had to submit a schedule of days and times I would be working, and if you're not working within those scheduled hours you get asked 'where are you. Why aren't you working?'


I don't like it when recruiters or employees sugar-coat the company they work for.


I'm only staying with Webmedx because I'm in the process of transitioning to another job with another company; one that I had worked for before. I feel a change is what I need now and I'm hoping that Webmedx gets their act together soon, as they are losing MTs and I know this for a fact because I have 3 friends who are leaving/left during the month of May, and I probably won't be there much past June/July.

Any info on ATSI/MT-World please, sm - Posted By: ohsooooohappy

Was just offered a job with ATSI doing radiology.  They pay they offered is more than any company that I have been applying with has offered, even a lot more than the company I am currently working for.  I have been soooo stressed out with my current company lately that I need a better opportunity and I pray this is the deliverance that I have been asking for.  Any info would be greatly appreciated.  TIA!!!

Re: Below D&L post - Posted By: tired MT

So I guess as long as they have clients paying them, and Transcriptionist working for nothing, they will be in business.

We might not be able to change the world, but one brick at a time can be removed. There are so many jobs posted - leave D&L - do not give them the opportunity to earn money off your back. I have to say - a line count of 6 or 7 cents a line is better than working for no pay, bounced checks, and aggravation.

Just like with any NEW job - you work up the ladder of rates, and if you do not at a new jib - move on - but n the meantime - why are these transcriptionists working to line their pockets and putting up with this? Have any of them really pressed charges and made complaints - you can do it online.

I get one bounced check, unsigned check, etc - I will file a complaint - especially when in most states you can get back up to 500.00 for a penalty from them. check out the check fraud web sites - the forms are there.



Webmedx-Latest info? - Posted By: SpherisMT

MD-IT - Posted By: s plummer

Hi, have done a search on this site for anything related to MD-IT but have found nothing.  Is there anyone who has worked (or works for them)?  Would you please share how you like it there?  seems strange that I can find nothing at all on here about them.  Thanks in advance for any input (have worked PT for them for a very brief time and it was a struggle).

probity? how are they about working with schedules, etc.? nm - Posted By: curious

I'm sure this will be pulled but I need to say that MTSOs are treated a lot worse than MTs someti - Posted By: Ticked off MTSO

WE take the risk to run a company.  WE get accounts to keep people busy.  WE pay more to our MTs than ourselves.  WE have to keep up on transcription, drugs, equipment, grammar rules, individual accounts, individual doctor preferences, business practices, tax laws, employment laws, etc.


WE have to pay for QA for MTs that do not know how to look up a word or phrase.  WE have to pay to hire and then be burned.  WE have to pay bank fees, lawyers, accountants, clerical staff, etc.  WE have to put on a smile for customers who don't deserve it because we don't want to lose an account because then our MTs would not have any work.  WE have to put up with crap from MTs who have every excuse in the book from mysterious illnesses to mysterious DSL/phone/electric outages. 


WE get bashed if someone is let go because their work is not up to par or if an account goes to voice recognition or goes with a company in India to save a buck.


WE get bashed if someone is hired and does not work out.


WE get bashed for requiring people to provide equipment, phones, etc OR we get bashed for providing all that but paying too low.


Take a look in the mirror.  If you have what it takes to get your own accounts, invoice, file all tax/employment/sales paperwork with your state and the federal government, can wait to pay your bills until the account has paid you, discount invoices for TAT that your employees do not meet or quality that is not perfect, deal with customers that nickel and dime you to death, give up time off because no one can cover for you, give up holidays so that your employees can spend time with their families, give up hot meals as someone always seems to drop the ball as the day goes on, negotiate to keep customers as each contract expires in an industry where prices are going down not up, then do it.


If you can do better than us, be my guest. 


Yes, some big wigs at some of the huge companies make a lot of money, but for the most part, most MTSOs make a good living, not great.  If I put my hours end to end, I put in the equivalent of two full time jobs.  If I worked two full time jobs for someone else, I would make more than I do running a service.


Before you b**tch and moan about the company you work for any more, ask yourself this question --- why are you still in this field?  The answers are easy --- it is a good field, MTs make excellent money for working at home, most without master's degrees or doctorates, there is some flexibility, opportunity to advance, ability to learn something every day, satisfaction knowing that an accurately transcribed report can make someone's treatment more effective or save a life (rather than having inaccurate medical records) and much, much more. 


The average teacher starts in the 20s, the average accountant in the 30s, the average computer person in the 30s.  We have potentially unlimited income and start in the 20s and move up rapidly.  Several MTs in our company topped 100k this year.  They would never have that opportunity in a different field.


We need to stop bashing each other.  It is not MTSOs vs MTs.  It should be working together as a team.  Teams that don't play well together do not succeed.



If you start PT at WebmedX, can you ask for FT down the road? - Posted By: Wondering

I am considering employment with WebmedX as my current situation is beginning to fall apart. Not being paid on time, and some other serious issues that suggest the company is floundering. I don't want to just quit however, as I cannot afford to take a major salary cut. I want to be sure that wherever I go I will be able to make enough money.

Bait and switch, but need this job!! - Posted By: SS

I tested for a company and jumped through hoops to take their many tests.  I had to take a 3 hour grammar, spelling, verb, etc test.  Then, I had to take a transcription test and then interview with the owner, manager and team lead.  I got the call yesterday with an employment offer, in which I accepted.  Then, when I received my offer via email this morning, it stated that per our discussion, your account will be all ESLs.  I am mortified.  All ESLs were never discussed and I accepted verbally.  I am scared to death because I really need this job.  Should I keep looking?

Didn't get any answers, so don't know if that's good or bad, maybe they're just a pretty small company and don't have many people working?  Anyone know anything about them recently?  Trying to update my notes for companies that may be interesting to check on.  Thanks!
