CorTmedical....What is the DEAL?

Posted By: ??? on 2006-05-30
In Reply to:

Do they even have MTs working for them anymore?  They do not pay their employees and they do not care.  They need to just shut down their business!  Anybody out there know what I can do about it?  I am going report them to the Better Business Bureau.

CorTmedical MTs; Have any of you gotten your 1099 from CorTmedical for last year?
I know that a lot of us were burned last year by this company.  I am wondering if they are going to at least send the 1099 for what they should have paid us.  I am wondering if they do not send it, how am I going to claim what they did not pay me as a loss?  Thanks to all, hope everyone has found something better since that disaster.   
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....
Anyone know anything about CorTmedical? 
Karen: If you are a newbie and want some on the job experience try applying. If you want to know more about the company from people who work there, then leave a post or email me: jenpoole31@yahoo.com

Okay, once again: In response to the poster who knows absolutely nothing of CorT: The owner is not mean, she is absolutely awesome. The pay is low when you start as it is an internship. Once you get off qa then your pay goes UP to what most companies are now offering. I am QA for the company. We have some truly amazing newbies at this company. They work hard, learn very quickly, and are just absolutely excellent. Sure there's an issue with the company getting paid by the other company. That means CorT is paying us out-of-pocket at the moment. This issue is being worked on and I'm more than willing to stick it out while they do. They are wonderful. I've never been with another company that was so upfront about the problems they're being faced with. If you have never worked there, don't know anybody who does, then keep your mouth shut with your negative thoughts.

When people post about MQ, as tired as I am of hearing it, I don't go posting my two cents. Because I've not worked there. Obviously you've never worked at CorT either. Or you tried but failed the test. Whatever.

I've spoken with several people that work for them and they're pretty happy there.


I think it was Etranz that had the funds problems.

they have blown me off for 3 months now and now all of a sudden I get an email saying they have proof of all the mistakes I was making (yeah right) and that I was being over paid anyway. I am going to file a Civil suit against them. I have every email they sent me and I still have the work that I did. They are liars and horrible people.

is not a place you want to work for, they are liars.

Has anyone ever heard of CorTMedical transcription in Ohio? I just found their website and have never heard of them nor can I find anything about them in the archives. If anyone knows anything about them I'd appreciate some info.

I would give the website address but don't know for sure if we are allowed to post that on here.  I only read and post on here sporadically. Thanks.

CorTMedical Pay
I got the impression from the website that they paid well, but like I said it was probably too good to be true..I would like the person who works there though to let us know about the pay there as well as bennies. 
I would be very cautious about working for this company. I worked for them in the past and my paychecks were ALWAYS late. They also bounced a payroll check to me, which my bank charged me for. I was told by the owner that I would be reimbursed for their mistake. That was back in March. The owner told me that he mailed the check out several times, but I never recieved it. He finally said that he would overnight a check to me if I did not recieve it within 2 weeks. That was about 2 months ago, and needless to say, I never got paid. Also, communication is very poor. I found that trying to get an answer about anything usually took at least a day, if not 2.

Anyone know anything about them?
Any comments on CortMedical?
CortMedical: Pay is lousy. nm
CorTmedical has been great to me.
I came into this company as a newbie in their internship program not long ago.   Their QA is wonderful and I have learned SO MUCH.  I came into the company during a financial hurdle that was no fault of theirs.  They have kept the employees informed and are caring and compassionate.  They are still having trouble, I hope it ends for them soon.  I believe they are good hearted bunch, hard working and well-meaning and I wish them the best.  If I never see a penny...I will still be pleased with my experience with them.  I have learned on the job and seen people at their best during the worst of times.  That says a lot for them, I believe.  I give them a thumbs up:)
CorTmedical Story

I know all of the facts around what happened with CorTmedical a few months ago. One of their clients did not pay them as scheduled and a few checks didnt clear because of this. It was a very unfortunate circumstance but the key principals and owners of that company paid back every cent plus any fees those employees suffered as promised. is was simply a bad time but everyone that i know that works for that company loves working for them. they are honest, compassionate and they treat there MTs and QA's extremely well. The are also growing very fast and are increasing they cpl rates to their workers by the month.

CorTmedical - Any info?
I am not sure about this company, anyone have any information?  Seems they are new. 
Happy with CorTmedical
Hi.  I started in CorT's internship program and they had great QA and support by IM any time you need it.  CorT had trouble early on when I started with them, because their client wasn't paying them.  They are a smaller MTSO and many of them don't pay if their client doesn't.  They got it straightened out and paid my back pay and have been on time since then.  They did quite a bit of hand-holding with me since I was new and were very kind and patient.  I was out of the internship within a couple of months. They seem to be a hard working bunch of people that really care about their employees.  They gave me a chance when no one else would and I hope to stay with them:)
CorTMedical location
I went back to the website and saw they were close to Dayton..but would still like to know about bennies and cpl (ballpark)
CortMedical Transcription, anyone have any info

Has anyone worked for or does work for CortMedical Transription.  Does anyone know anything about them and how they are to work for?  Please let me know. Thanks

CorTmedical ~ any recent info on them?

Please email the Administrator regarding CorTMedical
Sorry - that is CorTmedical. I just get all frazzled even typing it!
Has anyone who worked for CorTmedical in 2006 gotten their 1099 yet?
I know that a lot of us were burned last year by this company.  I am wondering if they are going to at least send the 1099 for what they should have paid us.  I am wondering if they do not send it, how am I going to claim what they did not pay me as a loss?  Thanks to all, hope everyone has found something better since that disaster.   
Okay, here's the deal...
I am a Transcender myself. I have just put in my notice, but in hindsight, wondered if I was being fair. I was becoming disillusioned about certain things and could not decide if it was just my perception and if I was the only one who noticed or if I was doing something wrong that I wasn't getting the same benefits as some others and wanted to know what others thought.

I think what I've come up with here is that it is a combination of both - that at times, I put all I had into it and didn't get much in return and at times, I could've put in more. Live and learn, I guess.
I was up the next day. It's not that big of a deal.
I don't know where you were going with this post, "In the know," as it's hard to tell if you're commiserating, bashing V, or accusing her of something. Sounds like maybe this is something between the two of you given the tone, but I'm going to post this anyway.

Dunno why. Hope you're both on good terms!
Here is the deal
The work load is down tremendously which in turn is causing the transcriptionists to have lower than normal line counts. I do wish you luck making the 2000 lines per day, but honestly I don't know if that will happen. Be cautious if they "promise" that work will never run out. I think we all have been told that at one time or another. Other than the lack of work right now, Medquist is a really nice company to work for. I just hope the work load situation is temporary!
Oh big deal!
Hey, we got CHAPSTICK for Christmas! ROFL - seriously, congrats on sticking it out - U deserve the best, as do we all in this profession!
What is the big deal
They are asking you to pull a small 30 minutes a weekend, is that so bad? I too am enjoying the slower time after so much work - most companies require everyone to work an 8 hour shift Saturday or Sunday, as does QT for the newer hires, you should be happy it is only 30 minutes you are asked to do!!
Here's the deal.
The first time I ever emailed them for more work, no one got back to me for 12 hours, by which time the point was moot. On subsequent occasions when I have been out of work or low and they are broadcasting for help on other accounts, I help out but then end up getting stuck on that account and NEVER any of the good dictators -- all the crap. So, anyway, now I just flex and hope to hit a run of the dictators I can understand every now and then.
big deal,.....
so, you are one person who LOVED them. I did not have any problem getting their quota, but I did not like the management's snobby and uppity-type treatment day in, and day out. Tech people were good, but the rest absolutely SUCKED.

MQ, now there is something to write home about. I never worked for them, but my friend does, and does not like them, but she stays with them because she is in her 60s.
one raw deal i see here is this
anyone in the world can post and name a company, say anything they want. person could be a teenager just out carrying on, a disgruntled mt, an employee of a competitor ... ANY PERSON say ANYTHING and NAME a company but companies sure don't hvae the right to name problem employees do they?

i think fair is fair: if companies can be named, so should people but no more anonymous situations. gotta name yourself. lol

that would cut a lot of this garbage out.
My deal
With Focus, it seemed to me that they let the subcontracted companies take precedence over actual Focus employees.  They get the work - like today as an example - I have no work to type, because it was given to the subcontractors.  That is my reason for seeking a second company to supplement my income.  On Focus pay right now with no work and the subcontracted companies TAKING WORK OUT OF MY QUEUE WHEN IT IS DOWNLOADED FOR ME TO TYPE...you get the picture.
I believe it is a done deal. (nm)
what's the deal
They acted like they needed help but won't contact anybody
that's the deal..
Yep, it looks like the only choice is to suck it up or switch jobs.  Truth it, there are so many awful surprises at new jobs these days that I'd rather just suck it up than switch jobs.  But, I did want to make an earnest effort to find out the truth if it is out there for the finding.  I'm weird that way; I like to actually KNOW when I'm being lied to..and worse.  It's totally up to me as to whether I let them do it to me. right?
Get this deal......sm
I was just recently hired by a company, sent in all my new-hire paper work, given a start date and then never heard from them again.  It just so happened that I ran my free credit report and noticed the company had checked my credit.  My credit is shot to say the least mostly due to this job and its fluctuations in pay.  I pay the bills when I can pretty much, but I always pay them.  I was shocked at my score, but I still can't believe they didn't have the courtesy to let me know that they decided against giving me the job because of my bad credit.  Just never heard from them again.  Very disappointing, and given the fact that they have all my stuff, SS#, license, W4, signatures, etc., this somehow doesn't even sound legal to me.  But even if it is legal, shouldn't you contact me and let me know you are not giving me the job and have destroyed my paperwork or something!!   Does this sound like a recruiter doing her job properly? 
What is the big deal?
I would go for it...Having no PTO is really not that big of a deal (sm)
although it is nice to have.  Still, you can take time off w/o pay and make it up if you want.  As someone else who is in their 50s I can tell you having the benefits and 401-K is much more important and I think is sounds like a good situation.  Good luck!
I don't see the big deal in the msg - sm
It's giving you the basics so you can decide whether to move forward with the hiring process.  Imagine all the time that would be wasted if a company tests 10 different people while 10 more are waiting and then those first 10 people get to the interview and decide they don't meet the requirements, can't meet the requirements, etc.  What's the big deal?  And that email message most likely came with a privacy disclaimer.  Before you say it, no I don't work for this company. 
Here is the deal (sm)
First of all, it would bother me to no end that they have MTs that have different rules just because they have been there longer (every weekend work versus 1 day a month??). Secondly, do you not think they can block you in Bayscribe and route the work to those MTs that have been there longer to keep them? Therefore, it sounds like you guys are all overflow MTs that they let in the system when work is high and don't care if you don't get work when it is low. I worked there before...I know for a fact they HOUND you to work extra and work extra (everything is a friggin crisis) but when there is no work you will never hear from them. Hmmm, why? They don't care its that plain and simple. I do think also there is something to this pushing the prn at 7.5 cpl thing. That's ridiculous. So, you keep your commitment and they don't have to keep a commitment to you? They want to say you didn't keep your commitment so they can push you to quit or take prn. I know...it happened to me. My best advice...stop idealizing a company that doesn't exist anymore. They used to be good...very good. That has changed and it is not good anymore and hasn't been for quite a while. It is hard to accept when you like your accounts and the system and maybe even the people (some would be hard to believe though ;) but accept what is reality and move on. Don't let them degrade your skills by using you this way. BTW, most of the positive posts I see on here I suspect are written by somebody in the company, a specific somebody actually given the way they write, to defend their reputation and to placate you guys. I know its hard and I'm not trying to be harsh but its the truth and I believe everything you are saying because I know first hand also. So, if you know the truth and its staring you in the face, don't let your wishes of how it could be or used to be mess you up so you can't pay your bills. That was the hard thing I had to accept myself. GOod luck everybody! Believe in yourself and know there is better out there.
What's the deal
I agree. What's the deal with them anyway? Do you think they just don't think or they just don't care?

I keep wanting to ask someone in authority at my company if they have EVER brought these things to the physicians' attention.

All those things are such ridiculous time wasters and risk for errors. I just don't get it.

It would be like if their patients kept getting up and running around, talking over the doctor, making phone calls, etc. while the doctor was trying to examine them or do surgery.

I am quite sure we have the only profession where we are supposed to work around and in spite of this type of thing. It's CRAZY!!

I think someone should say to someone ... are you KIDDING me?!!?

Do you think we could send anonymous letters (or make up a name for our group of MTs) to medical facilities and physicians and get any result? Like, start the letter, Have you ever thought about what it must be like to ... I really think we should try to do something.

Honestly, what year is it?!?
The deal is..
I feel for you, also; however, are coders paid on production? BIG difference,and I think most would agree that is where our main frustration lies. Time is money for us .. literally.

Happy Holidays to all! :)
What is the deal?
I have been recently looking for something part time to supplement what I am currently doing.  It has been about 2 years since I have searched for a job, but in the past, I have always been responded to fairly quickly once I applied.  I have 10 years experience with multiple specialties.  I do not really want to work for any of the BIG companies anymore as I have done that in the past and hated it, and I'm only looking for IC work.  I have never had this problem before so I'm assuming it has something to do with the economy.  Has anyone else been experiencing this as well? 
99% of the company is not on SR -- what;s the deal??
Most of the company is not on speech rec and probably never will be. From my standpoint, SR is better than shipping it to India.

I like that Transcend is very open with all its MLSs.
I think sarcasm is the only way to deal
not Happy OSi'er....but another OSi'er who is happy
I know I am, but what are you? Pleeeeze!!!!! Are we adults here or are middle schoolers doing MT now?!
Not a good deal there! sm
You will be doing all different dictators and jumping back and forth from account to account with different formats. You have to format headers/footers and they are all different for each dictator. I tried it for 2 days and the owner sent me a picture of himself. How weird is that?!!! Kinda out there.........
?? Why the name calling? Deal with it..
Disappointed, but don't know what the deal is
I had an interview set up today by Amphion at 9:00 a.m. - no call. Very strange - she called me Monday morning and asked for my schedule this week to set up an interview - I told her anytime, any day except Friday - she said Wednesday at 9:00 EST. OK, now it's 9:56 and still no call. I'm so disappointed - she said my testing was awesome, etc. - maybe I'll give them a call later and see what happened? Don't know.
This is how I deal with low work
sometimes at MQ.  I got a second job PT that is okay with my working extra unscheduled hours.  If MQ runs out, I will work for the other company.  I work on hospital work and to me, acute care is acute care.  All my accounts are ESLs anyways, so it doesn't much matter to me.  I just made sure my second job matched the cpl that MQ pays me.  Also, I have almost 10 backup accounts at MQ, so very, very rarely totally run out of work.
