I would bet they have themselves covered on that end.

Horrible company to work for.

Your fine as long as your employee, but if your IC, dont hold your breath waiting for a check.
Only employees get direct deposit. If you opt to be an IC, the checks may or may not get out and you may or not get them on a certain day.
Check the IRS info sm
you can Google IRS home office and get the info, it's pretty explanatory.  You can deduct percentage of home expenses and all of things that pertain to your business alone.  Just be careful and document everything very well.
Check out recent info here.

Doesn't sound like a very nice company.  More info here:



If you check archives there is info there on SmartMed, don't know about
other company.  I tested for SmartMed (they went by a different name though) and was offered an MT position, which I turned down.  They called about a month later to offer me a QA position because they had started offshoring work.  Not much nice to say about them from recent posts. 
Check archives, plenty of info.
I emailed you, please check your email...need info...
Info you asked for - employee status

PTO is generous, more than any other company I have ever been with, starts at 96 hours a year and goes up from there (this is to use for sick days, days off, and can be used on an an hour by hour basis).

Not sure about insurance since I don't need it, but I know they just switched companies and it is now much more reasonable than it was before.

Most MTs start at 8 cpl base rate with an incentive for all lines over 6000 in a pay period.  You can also get raises after you've been there awhile if you earn them, but you do have to ask, they don't just hand them out - you have to prove yourself and then justify your request for a raise.

I have been with them a long time, seen all the changes and there has never been a better time to be a Diskriter employee - all the support staff and supervisors who caused problems in the past are all gone - ALL of them.  I have heard the training now is minimal though, but the other MTs are there to help when you need it as well as the supervisor who has an open email and phone policy and only wants to help you.

Per info I got yesterday, employee plus kids comes out to
That was the cheapest plan.  but maybe I'll know more (or different) when they send me info later this week.  HTH!
Can anyone tell me if Future Net hires you as employee status or is it just IC? Any info on them? nm

Check the archives and more recent posts. Lots of info there.
Horrible place. Check the archives, lots of info there.

Does background check include credit check?

Statuatory employee versus regular employee....
Can someone tell me the difference between a statuatory employee versus a regular employee?  My company offeres IC or SE status....I am confused about whether switching over the SE would benefit me more than IC status that I have been for some time with them?  What are the benefits and disadvantages of being an SE versus IC?  Thanks for all of your help!
"You can check my credit if I can check yours"
They hire both IC and employee. I am an employee (see message)
and I have full benefits. I am very happy that I came to work here. I came as a statutory employee from a large company. Everyone at MDI has been great to me.
Depends on if you are employee or statutory employee (sm)
Employee, 8th and 23rd of month
Stat. Employee, 15th and 30th month
Diskriter - Anyone go from their employee to hospital employee with them?
Thinking about giving up on being their employee and applying for a hospital employee position through them, they have one in PA right now that looks good.  How is it for scheduling?  Do you keep your line rate or get whatever the hospital pays? Who manages those accounts, is it the same PM and DR that are on the other ones?  I have DR and feel like she doesn't have a clue what she is doing and it is so annoying, but I just don't have the guts to let the company know she needs to step it up a notch because the transcriptionists are not happy under her.  Are QA the same people or through the hospital.  They have 1 QA that is constantly asking us questions on doctors and format, things we should be asking that QA person.  Annoying that new people move up to QA but people who've been there 2 or 3 years get treated like dirt and jumped account to account.
Credit check, FBI check was not for
me. The notion that if you don't pay your bills means your not a responsible person really kills me!!! Lots of people have $$ problems, especially if you are an MT, LOL!!! They are the only company I know that does these checks. Seems a little anal to me!!!
They can check mine if I can check theirs...nm

Only employee and statutory employee..no IC
Any recent info on MedTrans Unlimited? newest archived info is 9 months old... m

Has anything changed in 9 months? Particular worries are the invoice/pay time; one post mentioned 2 to 3 week wait and another post stated 1 week. Info from the company states pay is sent out 10 days after the last day of the billing period, but we all know what is said and what is done isn't always the same. Another concern is the platform; some mentioned it was slow and cumbersome. They have 2 platforms from what I can gather.. Are they both slow? It seemed like certain specialties were done on certain platforms, or at least that is what I got out of the archives. I really hate to jump from the frying pan to the fire so any info would be VERY much appreciated.. the good, bad, and the ugly! TIA!!

Any Axolotl employees willing to share info., platform, ESL %, etc. All info greatly appreciated. sm

Along with the platform, ESL %, pay range, lpd required, split shift or 12-24 hour window available, I would be interested in knowing your personal experience with this company, what type of relationship you have with supervisors and other coworkers, etc.  Otherwise, the all the 411. 


Current info on Diskriter?? Past info was very mixed. Either MTs hated it or liked it, does anyone

love working there and why? Do you easily meet your incentive pay or as past people have said, the ESL are so bad that you never meet the line count. I need current and new information. Isnt there a company out there that has a handful of happy employees or does all of them have both the haters and lovers. It is so hard to sort out fact from fiction sometimes and all of us have different expectations. It kind of goes along with the one man's junk is another man's treasures theory, I suppose.

Any new info on Amphion? Archive search doesn't provide new info (sm)
Looking for a part-time position with decent pay and decent workflow. There's nothing new in the archives.
Need info on eMTS out of Florida. Any info would be appreciated!
Any new updates on Focus for QA? Good info/bad info? sm msg
I checked the archives and read all the messages.  Have things changed for the better here?  Is there steady, reliable work?  Able to make any decent money?  Thanks!
Thank you. I will check into it.

Actually, they are a recruiting firm that ARE recruiting for a large US based company...
Thank you! Will check them out too!
MQ check

Well, that threw me for a curve when I got the ipay notice, checked it out on ADP's site and it said for DEP adjustment???

I have'nt got the real check yet and did not know a letter was to accompany the check I was not expecting, so what is this for?

Check out

You can check into
Verizon wireless.  They have a PC card that you can use in your laptop.  It will give your computer a signal and it will work like a cell phone.  As long as you are in the Verison service area you can use the internet.  I have a family member who is always on the go and loves it!
You bet they can - check this out.
First Pay Check?
Is this your first paycheck from the company? If it is, then that's what happened to me on my first pay check only. I get paid every two weeks, but the first paycheck was withheld for two weeks so when I finally got paid I waited 6 weeks, but now my pay comes every two weeks.

Bytescribe web side. I think there is a free one somewhere too. Very easy to use and kind of fun.



Did you check... (sm)
The system status on the main page? As of 1 pm PDT, status is Okay -- sort of -- It's the phone company's fault. (It was that way a couple of hours ago, too.) Clearly there's a technical problem of some sort(but I'm not sure I'd get paranoid about it and/or say Same Old S...)
no check yet either

Yes, I am in the same situation with the same company.  They informed of my 9 cents rate and weekly pay.   That was two and a half weeks ago.  The work was definitely there and they constantly calling me to work.  I got suspicious the second day when they did not send me a 1099 and no other paperwork besides their MT scope letter which means nothing but what hours can you commit to.  Well, I felt it was too good to be true.  I really like the account too but they wanted to me email every 30 minutes the work so they could cut and paste the work into the system.  I was like how the system know if it was my work etc, etc.  By the grace and mercy of prayer I have a job with benefits now while I was only IC with DocuMed.

FBI check and OSi
FBI called a friend's ex to get the scoop on me. He was later arrested for sex crimes and served time for that. Yeap talk about big brother OSi and FBI go hand in hand they have a ton of gov't accounts. We received an insurance settlement from a car accident and I was able to quit & leave them behind. Good riddance to them. That whole experience was awful.
Be sure you check out other
sources of job ads or even just look around for companies in your area and send in a resume even if you don't know if they are hiring. Check Craig's list for your area. Check sites like Monster. Watch for jobs that want a resume faxed or mailed instead of e-mailed. They do that so they get a lower volume of resumes, which works to your advantage.

Go to bbfb.com (Best Buy for Business). They have XP available only on-line.

I bought mine the first of August. I even went to bbfb.com, found one that I liked and added it to my cart but did not buy one that day. A day or two later Best Buy e-mailed me asking me if I was still interested in buying a computer, and they offered me a 10% discount.

I found this while doing a Google search.  It seems like her company name is fictitious. 


STATEMENT File No. 20070676. The following person(s) is(are) doing business as: FASTPHALANGES, 3850 Rio Road #40 Carmel, CA. 93923. SUSAN BARRIER 3850 Rio Road #40 Carmel, CA 93923. This business is conducted by an individual. Registrant commenced to transact business under the fictitious business name listed above on: March 7, 2007. (s) Susan Barrier.  This statement was filed with the County Clerk of Monterey County on March 16, 2007. Publication dates:  Mar. 30, Apr. 6, 13, 20, 2007 (PC 336)

I certainly would proceed with caution if I was anyone thinking of working there.  Fictitious, not for me!!  NO way, Jose!

NO...No check yet.
No check here yet either. My check has been 3 to 4 days late for the last two months or so, but anticipate one shortly. Hopefully. I know the mail does take a couple of days and then the weekend was here, but.....
no check
I too didn't quit when the first check bounced. They gave me the story that they were in the process of switching bank accounts. But then the second check bounced. Before that, my check kept getting later and later until finally I was lucky to receive my check within two weeks of payday, so I suspected something was going on for the last six months.

The archives, I mean.  Alot of excellent people with good skills and success before and after Alltype were used and abused there.  Just trying to give you a heads up without going negative.  Watch your back and the best of luck to you.
