Maybe if this deal loses clients, I can work out an at-home deal with one of my current accounts.
Or else get a McJob at McDonald's flipping McBurgers....

What incentives were you hired at? If you are an SE, were you told you get quarterly bonuses?  PLEASE REPLY!

Just keep calling (sm)
Don't be nervous. Same thing happened to me. They are spread pretty thin there, with people wearing a number of hats. They don't really have one person who does only recruiting that I'm aware of, unlike the other companies, hence the disconnect in getting back with people.
Have you tried calling them?


Calling on ICs

I have always been a FT employee for a national ...I understand IC status but very unfamiliar w/companies hiring IC status....Any advice on ICing greatly appreciated and good/bad companies....How is money doing Rad as compared to hospital basic 4...?

Thank you

keep calling
630-553-3680 I played phone tag for quite awhile before I finally got to talk to the recruiter. I believe they must be really busy hiring these days.
No name-calling, please. (sm)
We all have to get along on this board. If you don't care for what someone is posting, you can disagree but you cannot use foul names or vulgar references.

First off an MD would not be calling HR to
talk about an MT.  They have a contact and if they had a problem with the work of an MT they would call their contact, not HR. 
Have you tried calling them???
Why would you be calling yourself sm
Newer TTer if you've been there for 3 years?  Probably forgot to change the name field, didn't you?  I smell someone trying to be more than 1 person here.
you are calling her smug?

I think it's quite smug that you assume because you state you were allowed to have a flexible shift that this statement will automatically allow Transcend management to know who you are!  So, you were the only one treated special?  Well, you don't work there anymore so all should be fair now!

Also, I knew coming into the job that Transcend had 300 or so employees and was not as big as Spheris.  Who cares?  Also, I think the fact that you pointed out, about how numbers of MTs post positive comments about Transcend, I think that definitely speaks as to the health of the company.  If we were posting negative comments, everyone would be ready and more than willing to accept those posts as an indication of how the company is functioning.  It seems that the bad is always more spicer and acceptable than the good. 

As far as blanket statements go, that is exactly what was going on with the unhappy poster.  They were blanket statements.  And as far as trying to "draw her out", you are absolutey correct.  I could care less who that poster is, I want to draw out the specifics of the allegations.  I want to understand what she is talking about and why.  If you are going to post something on here that is controversial, you had better be prepared to back it up, good or bad.  There is nothing wrong with expecting that out of someone, otherwise that poster's comments are chalked up to a disgruntled employee or bad seed. 

I also know that I am no one special at Transcend, but I have managed to be treated very well there since being hired.  I have been given everything that I need and have FINALLY found a company that I can trust.  It is quite easy to get on here and post positive things about a company, placing your name beside it.  You are right about that.  However, I have worked for Keystrokes and Spheris and have posted many times complaints about each and have posted my name.  Why is that? Because I believe in what I stand for and if I feel that I am not being heard or treated fairly, I am not ashamed or afraid to stand up for what I need.  Sure there may be repercussions in that, but I am willing to accept that.  What some people don't realize, though, is that there are also repercussions in anonymity in that you never get anything changed.


Considering this company, could some people give me their average pay an hour, etc.  Tx

I see. So that's why you are calling her dishonest?
Apparently there were changes made. That does not make her dishonest. It means her plans changed.
I have this recruiter calling me
about a position within her company. When I asked her initially how she got may name and number she said someone gave it to her but she couldn't remember who. Anyway, she has called 4-5 times. Her name sounded familiar so I looked back to old jobs I had applied for. She used to be the recruiter for SoftScript (I guess, she may work for both). Are they allowed to take that information with them to another company? I'm really bothered by the fact that she has done this and have told her to quit calling me but I'm just amazed that she has taken this information and is now using it for this other company.
Hmmm. I would try calling them. nm
If they are calling you , then yes, you passed - sm
otherwise you'd probably never hear from them, or maybe get an email saying try back in 6 months. Talk to them, you have nothing to lose. If you like what they say accept the offer but tell them you cannot start until January. Or if they don't like that offer to work PT until then and go FT in January. It usually takes a week or more to get all set up as it is. As for looking around, you face a lot of competition, jobs are hard to come by. I just lucked into a backup job for my main job (both are totally IC, no set hours and on the new one just have to meet 500 lines a day) (getting bad vibes from my regular job, another MTSO is trying to get the account away from my employer, and if they succeed I am out of a job--they have been up front with me at least at let me know). The pay for the new IC job is not great (average), but for now is it extra $. If it becomes my B&B I will be making less, but it is easier work so it would all work out in the end. You could accept the MW offer and keep looking, no law against that. Good luck.
Try calling a recruiter.
Or not calling a recruiter. That would be best.
I would appreciate your not calling me **nuts**

I only got 5 hours during my scheduled shift yesterday and only 3 hours during my scheduled shift today, so I know for sure. No jobs.

Please know the entire story before posting such accusatory names as ***nuts***. My account has no work for me.

Calling all MDI-MD'ers...

I have just been contacted by MDI-MD for interview.  I could sure use your imput esp if you are an old MQ'er.  If you would like to respond, could you please E-mail me?


Thanks so much!

maybe try calling them and ask if no one knows the answer
If that happened to me, I'd be calling the BBB

Try emailing or calling your former STM. nm
Calling all you LANDMARKIANS!! (Is that right??)

Hello!  I just joined Landmark and would be very interested in meeting some of my many co-workers scattered out there across the country!  If there are any of you that may be interested in sharing IMs, please just email me.  I promise not to abuse you with IMing.  The company I just left mandated IM accounts so I will understand perfectly if you're not interested.  I didn't think I would ever be again!  All the IMing I had to do caused me to have to burn the midnight oil on more than one occasion!!

Please just shoot me an email if you are interested.  I think this could very helpful for us.  If you have zero interest in an IM relationship then that's perfectly fine too!  I'd still like to hear from any of you working at Landmark.  I've been doing this so long there may actually be a few of you I do know from years ago!


Landmark Newbie

Yes, I agree with calling New Jersey
What has happened is that P and M have a lot more authority than they are capable of handling. for example, I know of an MT whose son was killed in a car accident. For obvious reasons during the funeral and shortly thereafter she could not make her lines, they threatened to cut off her health insurance, single mom. That one broke my heart and I knew I had to leave.
IF you stop calling it Christmas
First of all, I don't think it's possible. People would never totally adapt to saying Holiday instead of Christmas. But second of all, I think that if we did stop saying Christmas, lo and behold, whatever word we used instead, be it holiday or whatever, would then become an objectionable word. They just are jealous of us and want to bully us around. I can imagine maybe we just change the date? Christ was born in September anyway. It all goes back to converting pagans and having a celebration to coincide with their big winter celebration.

No communication? They are calling and emailing me
Same thing happened to me, and when I kept calling
hired me went on vacation for 3 weeks. Ridiculous. I had to move on and get work with someone else. Cannot waste time waiting around for people like this - how long will you wait around when you have a problem. Nope ... move on.
Have all the emails go to Junk so you don't see them. Keep calling until
Looks like the pot calling the kettle black to me....sm
Obviously you have time to come here and check out the posts. Ever think other people might be the same way?
To OSi, pls stop calling me to work on my day off!

If all your newbies and mentees can't help you out for chrissakes stop ripping people off and lying to them so you can retain quality MT's who actually have experience and can get the job done.


They are the ones calling it Medquist Docuscribe, not me. nm

Thanks! They are calling me to talk to me on Monday! SM
I'm very excited! I'm looking to move from Keystrokes to MDI, or at least drop down to part-time at Keystrokes and be full-time with MDI since they seem so great, and the recruiter was very, very nice! What type of platform do they use? Do you have to submit a time sheet at the end of the pay period?
Have you tried calling their office and talking with anyone?
Wow! How 'bout doing what I did and calling the office and asking?
In fact, there ARE new accounts coming on all the time. There is a large new one starting the 28th of this month, as a matter of fact. I really do not understand the one or two posters who continually come to this board to bash TT. IMHO they are the best of the best. I am sure they aren't for everyone, but why so nasty about this company. Did you have a bad experience? Did you get fired?

With regard to the press release quote, I have asked management about it and they have said they estimate ultimately between 15-20% of their staff will be on speech recognition. People, that leaves 80-85% of us who will not. Is there really a problem with that? Come on.
I am responding to the name calling posts

I simply tried to tell the OP that if she didn't have enough work to start looking and dump the old no work situation. 

Oh well, so much for trying.  Life is not full of sugar. 

Fortunately, I am not the only one with this opinion, and boy am I glad because you guys ripped me good. 

i didn's see any name calling from Alice
you lost me...
You know your calling people ignorant...sm
really ticks me off. It is a simple mistake that was made. You need to get over it! No harm was meant. I could have made the mistake myself because I honestly did not know Oriental was not appropriate. I am not ignorant.
OSI calling for interview. Anyone with an opinion?n,
Actually you fatcat are the pot calling the kettle

You see in another thread you called me a bully.  Now that you are doing the bullying, you are calling yourself helping.  Well isn't that like talking out of both sides of your mouth.

Oh, I guess you never thought your previous comments would come back to haunt you, but you were wrong, so wrong.

You need to stop acting so perfect and understand that this is a message board.  Sure, professionals read it, but even in the above post by a so-called MTSO teacher, there are errors. 

  Have a great day! 

I dread calling tech!!! Like you said....
all they do is go into your computer and look at things and never solve the problem. I have called numerous times this week with a problem and guess what, it's still not fixed! And they made me stay on the phone while they were fixing the problem and it's just weird cuz it's dead silence the whole time. If this issues isn't fixed, I will have to go elsewhere cuz it's really messing up my production. So sad.
Calling someone an idiot is not commenting... NM
Calling all (or any) Acusis employees!

I'm shopping for a job and would like to know more about this company. 

Do they offshore and if so, are you doing the garbage work that is too difficult to ship out (like at MedQuist)?  How are the local accounts?  Are you micromanaged? Is there enough work? 

If anyone would be so kind as to provide some answers as to the work climate, Your input is much appreciated.  And you not only help me, but everyone else who is curious.  Muchas gracias, merci beaucoup, danka schein (spelling is wrong, sorry), and thank you very much. 

This board is a true help to all of us, our only way of networking this information.   



Well, thank you for calling our attention to THAT little gem of a thread!!!
Wow, and didn't Larry said he HAD to send the work offshore because he had no MTs working at night?

And then here's this poor AMERICAN MT having her work literally ripped from her to give to INDIA?

Yeah, just the kind of place I want to work for...NOT.

Thanks again for bringing this thread to the forefront. I rarely check the Main Board so I'm not surprised I missed it the first time around!!!
pot calling kettle black
Your whole post was a snipe! and who would want to work with you anyway?
If you work for Precyse now, try calling the help desk, if not sm...

If you're not with Precyse now, you work on one of their PCs with everything already loaded.  My best guess would be to say "no, you can't use a laptop", but I never had to use one, so don't quote me on that. 

Hope this helps some

instead of calling this MTStars, why not call it MQstars - sm

yes, I am being sarcastic, but it seems like the non-MedQuist people have to weed, dig, hack and puke through all the MQ posts just to get to read anything on this board! 

There, I feel better now that I have vented.   

Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black to me!
Like we don't know of a BUNCH of absolutely whacked-out nutty MTSOs? And then the MTs that move from company to company are the ones off the deep end. I think you need a stand-up comedian side job! I'm over here LMAO! hahahahahahahahaha
what are you calling specials? interventional stuff?
So for a CT abd/pelvis you
would be paid at least $2.00?
did that many many times...still calling, can't stop 'em
no call list is a crock. I have been on it since it was first implemented and as far as I can tell, it has never stopped any body from calling, particularly the automated phone calls.
What is ridiculous is calling it a holiday if you neither get it off nor get paid for it. nm
