Axolotl has AWESOME, AFFORDABLE insurance.  Family plan medical and dental costs a little over $300.00 MONTHLY.  They also pay for family plan vision in its entirety.  STD, LTD, 401K with match and flex spending account, great PTO and HOLIDAY pay.  OH and paid downtime in the case you run out of work, which doesn't happen often!!!

Axolotl carries BS/BC with very great rates and coverage!
Axolotl has a great insurance plan with very competitive prices. 
Single plan $52 up to $150 for family bimonthly.  They pay for vision.  Dental ranges from $3 to 13 bimonthly.
Axolotl has great affordable insurance!
Their rates are better than any MT company that I know of.
Axolotl insurance. They have great rates but what is the coverage
like?  Can anyone tell me what insurance company they use and what your experience has been?  TIA
Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
Great company, great boss, great account!!!nm
Great company and they pay employee insurance. nm
Started small; great company. Rapid growth; not so great company
First year I was there was like heaven. Then the big growth spurt when they hired managers from another company (that I had run away from before because of their bad management) and let them kind of take over. Although I have no proof it was as though I got 'bumped' by these new people when they came in and I lost a good account, good manager, etc. My paycheck went down every month lower and lower, and it became harder and harder to make my minimal lines. Having any kind of advocate was nonexistent.

It depends on you and what kind of MT you are. Seems to me there are pretty much 2 types...

Sports like basketball where you have the pros who play with finesse, and then you have street players who think it is all about physical strength, period. More and more the physical strength is winning but the art of the game gets lost more and more...

As in this country where there are almost 2 sides now, those with intellect and thoughtfulness, and those who think the only way to be strong and be a leader is to beat up everyone who does not agree with you...and force your will on others.

Suffice it to say in my opinion WMX changed its philosophy of the way it treated employees and lost its heart when it grew, and it was literally almost overnight...

If you are a mass producer who has no care of what it takes to make money, if you are a 'street fighter' then it would probably be for you because you WILL have to fight for everything. Fight for the right account, fight for lines, fight to be treated fairly, etc. If you appreciate MTing for the art of MTing or have any kind of joy for the profession, my guess is you will not make it there very long...

This is happening all throughout the what used to be called profession. Seems to happening all through everything these days. Humanity and heart are being pushed down to the bottom...
You are pathetic! I have a great life, loving family, work for a great company.
You might want to fix that.

You really don't have to shout (angry person), but yes you are wrong!!

That is my last word to you!

I will add that getting a great pay check every other Friday from Medware really puts a huge smile on my face.
It's a great company -- lots of work and great pay. sm
Web site is www.mditrans.net.  If you need anymore info, feel free to ask. 
Great company, great boss....

I use to work there.  The dictators on my account were really good.  They use Emdat/Inscribe.  Pay on 1st and 15th by direct deposit.

What is so great about Axolotl?
just curious..............
Great little company..I worked there for a short time, IC, and pay always on time, great owner too!
I had good dictators, they use FTP, and I had a 12-hour window to return the work.
Thanks! Axolotl sounds great!
I just sent in my resume for Axolotl. They sound great. Just looking for steady work flow, dependable and accurate paycheck and a little bit of respect in turn for the same. Thanks again!
Does Axolotl have VR? They sound great. nm

Axolotl has great rates


We have several plans to choose from and it also depends on what state in which you reside.  For my family plan, my rates ranged from $100 twice a month to approximately $200 twice a month.  They have some high-tech plans  too but it was pretty outrageous.  The plans I am talking about have good/great coverage. This is the medical.  Dental ranges from $12 to $14 a pay period and they pay the vision insurance.

Read on several boards that Axolotl can be great
but that there are some killer accounts, while others are great, and same with QA, some fair and some brutal.  I know I'd get stuck with both the killer account and killer QA.   Not a good combo for happiness or making money, just to me.
right, and the insurance is not that great
pay is 6.5 to 8 cpl, unless you're on a special team where you move around alot on accounts you get 9, the insurance is not cheap and has a huge deductible.
Yep...great insurance, but I HATED working for them.
For years I had wanted so badly to work for Axolotl. I was finally hired and found it to be one of the biggest disappointments ever. Left there and never looked back.
Great news on insurance, I never doubted this would happen

Well, see, TT did come through on helping more with the insurance.  Rates dropped considerably AND they are still doing research for getting even better rates and plans.

Nay sayers, you could have given them time and had a little faith.  I worried, but wasted time worrying, because the big boss did what she said, and they always do.  Congrats TT MTs. Things looking better every day.

System great, pay good, everything great, but most managers from old Edix, problems, poor people ski
when you are out of work, you are out of luck. If you are good at brown-nosing, are tough enough to be without any self-esteem, and have maybe money coming into the household on the side in case you tick someone off, then you may succeed, for a little while.

Don't ever ask questions or have problems with anything. Don't ever have a problem. Don't think you will have any control over anything you do, either.

A few 'good' managers remained when I left, but the new ones were all from the old Edix, and were completely into numbers, cared nothing for individual MTs...if there is work, you BETTER be working. If there no work, you will hear nothing, no one will help you.
Oracle is great. Bayscribe is wonderful great line counts.
The trainer at OTI will always answer any questions about the platform and if you have any problems they have already worked them out, so just ask. Good luck!
YOG - Lots of work, great office staff, great money. NM
Loved Alltype! Great management and great accounts.
wah  -  i miss it there!
Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
Great company!
I am very happy working for MDI. I have worked for them full time for a few years and part time before that. It is a great company to me and it's very easy for me to be able to call and talk to my TL or anyone above her if I have an problems/concerns/questions. There are lots of negative postings about them on this site, but have not had the bad experiences that they have had. My experience has been nothing but positive!!!!
Great company! (sm)
Good pay, good accounts, flexibility, best MTSO I have ever worked for in my 20 years as an MT.  Just started with them a little over a month ago, & couldn't be happier!  IC status only, though, but that's not a problem for me.  Anything else I can tell you, just let me know  
They are a great company!
QA'd their work for a short while, but it was a second job and couldn't keep up working 2 jobs, so quit at JLG.  They are a small, family-like company.  The owner is an MT and has had offers to sell out to the big boys. but she loves her company and her employees and will not sell out.  If you have a chance to work for them, you will not be sorry! 
GREAT company...sm

They are friendly staff as stated, pay is good, but no benefits. But the pay, plenty of available work, and understanding of the company makes up for lack of benefits.  I have had family illness over the past several months and they have been understanding.  I feel bad for not being as dependable as I was when I first started, but they have really hung in there for me, so I am hoping to return the favor and help them out as much as I can. GREAT company.  You cannot go wrong.  I was thinking about looking for another job because they have no benefits, but they are just too good to risk that.  So, never again, will I even think about that.  You will not go wrong with them.  I have been with them almost one year and they are as nice as they were from the beginning!

Great company.
I actually wanted to work for them, but I failed their online quiz.  The question lines and answer boxes were so close together, I am sure I marked the wrong boxes just because it was impossible to differentiate one question from another.  I have been an MT for 18 years.  I knew the answers to every one of those questions, except for maybe 1 or 2 I was confused on.  I don't know if it was timed or not.  If it was timed, maybe that is why I failed.  I did the test in between phone calls.  Good luck with that!
Great company

I have worked with them since the company started and they have been GREAT!!  I can give you names of LOTS of other MTs  that agree.

you will see bad listings about them on here but think about the people that it is from--fired and mad people.

AccuStat pays on time and the people are just great to work with.....I can't express that enough!!!

great company
AccuStat is a great company in my opinion.  They know your name and do not treat you like a number.  Their pay is on time.  Their managers are great and their accounts are good too.  They are simply a great company to work for.
TRS seems to be a great company
I was slated to start with them. I accepted the position and then decided not to go with them because I could not afford to live with the salary offered. I spoke with Kathy after I decided not to take the position and she seems very honest,polite,and interested in the MTs. I did not have a bad experience, I just declined the position because I could not afford to live with the salary offered.
Great company
I have been with Meridian since October. I get wonderful feedback, great QA people. Pay is every 2 weeks and very fair. I am on MedRite and I love it here.
They are a great company sm
Super flexible scheduling, very nice people to work for, and I always have work. I use EX Text, and I personally do about 7000 lines every two weeks. I do not remember what the line requirement is. I do not know if they are hiring, but I am extremely happy here.
Great company.
They are very employee friendly. I know they are going through some management changes, but show me a company that does not. The owner is an excellent person to work for and takes care of his employees as long as you do what is asked. I would recommend it highly if you are offered a position!!
Great company
I have also been there several years. No complaints.
Good QA people. Steady work.
Pay on time. Good people to work with and to work for. I have been to their office and met all the QA people. Have met the owner personally.
great company
This a great company. What is the sm
use of saying run, run without giving any other info? It's a waste of a read. I worked for TN and they are wonderful people and always paid on time. The best place I have ever worked. I left due to health reasons.
Great company
I have been with them since March, they are a very fair and honest company to work for.  I have had no problems with them.  Absolutely no complaints here
DSG great company
DSG is a great company to work for--I have been there for a couple years...I believe it must be one of the best!
Great company....

and NO I am NOT management, or recruiting, or anything like that.  I am an MT....been working for them for quite awhile.  They are an excellent fit for me.

Lots of ESLs - yes.  IC only - I think so; check with them about it though.  Direct Deposit - always correct and always on time.  Platform - it is their own and is Word based, so if you are familiar with Word you would be all set.  Managers are very kind and helpful, answer questions almost immediately.  QA - I have seen some posts on this board that were negative about their QA but I really dont have much contact with QA.  I am familiar with my accounts, I do my work, and they leave me alone and put my paycheck in my checking account every other week.  I also like that they do not beg and plead and hound us to death to get work done when it gets backed up.  Yes, they let us know; yes, they send out emails; yes, they say they STILL need help; but there are no phone calls or IMs or *guilt*.  It is just - if you can help, please do, we need you.  Also, the workflow group are great.  They seem to have a handle on their job and do it well.

But no company is perfect.....so......what would be the cons to FN?  Running low on work.  This seems to happen when they are ready to take on new accounts.  It SEEMS that they hire in anticipation of new accounts and put new hires on present accounts until the new accounts start dictating.  Work may be low at those times.  BUT THIS IS ONLY MY IDEA...I dont know if that is what actually happens.  I think the last time I was low on work was, maybe last Spring. 

Also, the work seems to get slow the weekend before we turn in our invoices.  I think MTs are trying to get in their lines for the pay period.  I dont know for sure, of course, but that is MY GUESS.  So what I do is make sure I get my lines in the Friday before the weekend before invoices so that is there is little work that Saturday and Sunday, I can take time off and not sweat it.

It works for me.

What a great company DRC was?

Do you really think they care about the lowly MT who is so offended?  Doubt it.  They're laughing all the way to the bank baby!

Great company
I do all ER reports for KS, and I average anywhere between 2000 and 2500 lines a day. I have only been there for about a month, but I have never run out of work, but they gave me a second ER account in case I ever do. Each account uses a different platform. Mine uses ExText, and I love it. Other accounts require a C-phone. As far as ESLs, every account is different, but there is only one on mine, and he is not even that bad. I would have no problem recommending this company to anyone. Good luck.
Great Company

Great company.  The owner is very friendly and helpful.  Flexible scheduling.  Emdat is great!!!!!  Pay on time all the time.  Wonderful company.

great company
This is a great company to work for. Emdat is very easy and so convenient for working. Pay on time, direct deposit and boss is so nice and helpful. Work is good and plentiful most all days. good luck
Yes, MDI-MD is a great company, but
they do require you schedule some time on the weekends.

I work for Axolotl.  I have been employed with them for 18 months.  I don't know if they are hiring PT but they are definitely hiring FT.

They have EXCELLENT benefits, which includes health insurance, dental insurance and vision for around $300.00 month FAMILY.  They have other GREAT benefits as well. 

I think it's a great company,
and the new account I'm on is a winner. I've been there about 9 months.
Great company
I currently work there and love my job. They are great people to work for and the work is steady. Love my accounts. Pay is 0.8 cents a line.
