We heard Transcend is buying Keystrokes next. I'm not working for Transcend. No Way !
Come on somebody, thinking about working for Transcend ?? nm
Frustration working at Transcend.

Anybody out there still employed with Transcend, who is frustrated right now????   Well, I am for sure.  Seems no matter how hard you try or how much effort you put into correcting the errors in report, they still complain about quality.  Maybe it is this way everywhere, I don't know.  I am just really frustrated, especially because their pay is pretty bad.  Only 4 cpl for editing jobs.  I spent all day doing editing jobs and I figure I made about $40 that day.  Wow, then I can plan on making about #200 a week or so.  I have tried so hard to stay the course and keep hoping things will get better, but so far they are not. 

Anybody out there want to add a comment.   

Frustration working at Transcend
It is a shame to see such a great place to work become so bad. It was fantastic 3 years ago but since VR has taken over the employees are dropping like flies. They are going to be left with very few employees - is anyone left there? Would the last person out please shut the door!
Frustration working at Transcend, same here
I am in the same boat as you. I have been working for them for almost 2 years and was promise a pie in the sky salary when I started. I haven't even been offered a raise yet. I get very discouraged because I work as hard as I can and even work extra on my days off. I wish they had a mentoring program to help others learn how to make the $900 per pay period that they require for you to be a full-time employee. From what I have read in the labor laws production workers are suppose to get paid the difference to make up for what they are not making, as far as minimum wage goes.
I have been working for Transcend for about 3 months.

They paid me an hourly rate for the training phone call, then straight production.  I was only allowed to do 5 reports a day.  I stayed on QA for about 2 weeks.   Some of the posters on this board claim that they did not have to wait that long. 

They do pay on time.  I do run out of work quite a bit during my shift, however, on weekends it picks up quite a bit. 

Very intelligent response. If she was not working for Transcend, she would
not be their recruiter.
Which did you like working for--Webmedx, Transcend or Softscript?
Any opinions? 
Any tips on how to survive working at Transcend?

I just got sold to them and my friend has given me a lot of words of warning.  Anybody have any suggestions on survival? 

Ditto.. Over 13 years experience working in hospitals doing all types of reports, currently working
for a national etc.. and Spheris told me I didnt have the qualifications. What cracked me up was the hospital I was working at at the time contracted some of our work out to them.. What a joke..I was good enough to work for a hospital and gave them work, yet not qualified enough for them. What is wrong with this picture.
MQ same situation. No pay for working holidays, no pay for working weekends nothing. Now noone works
much anymore and so they jerk the work out of the accounts to some place that throws it back with a lot of bad bad quality. This is the NE region. I dont know what the others are doing.
Transcend bought MDI, so if Transcend sends work offshore, so does MDI. nm
working from home is awesome but working for DSG is not...
horrible dictators, sound quality is bad, no answers to emails and they run out of work consistently...that is just my experience though...
If MDI-FL is owned by Transcend and Transcend admittingly offshores, sm
then doesn't that make MDI a company that offshores? That's like saying that one branch of a company offshores but another does not, so they are excluded from the offshore label. If MDI-FL is part of Transcend and Transcend offshores, that means that they do.
RE: If MDI-FL is owned by Transcend and Transcend admittingly offshores, sm
Your hypothesis is incorrect. MDI is a wholly independent subsidary of Transcend, therefore, they were not a part of the experiment to offshore to evaluate cost/benefit ratio that Transcend only tried for 90 days (I believe the evaluation process is not still ongoing).
It is not Transcend. Transcend has not had control of
the accounts long enough to make any changes to anything. Maybe your account just slowed down like a lot of others did over the last few weeks. Everything will run status quo for a few months before any major changes are implemented. And give Transcend a chance. It is a good place to work and you will finally have some benefits that you will enjoy.
So how is that working out for you?
Really? I'm working, too.
However, I'm working at the part-time job I was forced to get as soon as I figured out Transcend was screwing me.  I have nearly 1,800 lines in so far today.  How many do you have?
Are you still working for them? LOL
If you are, why don't you take your own advice -- leave. You're no victim except of yourself.

If you're not working for them, what's it to you? We're all adults.

Whether or not a company is "good" or "bad" (such juvenille generalizations, lol) is a matter of perspective and there are PLENTY of us who don't share your views.
Are you working for them now?
I just interviewed with them yesterday and have not heard back.  Are you working for them now?  How is that working out for you?  Are you happy?  Thanks
I, too have worked for other services. I think Transcend is excellent. You can make as much or as little as you want. I agree with you everyone is very nice and helpful and easy to talk to and most helpful. I have a different job at Transcend now and I think that very much, but I also transcribe whenever I get a chance.
are you still working for them?
I liked working for them but there
wasn't enough work on the 2 accounts that I was on to justify the fee for leasing the equip and I don't make enough yet to make purchases like dictaphone, lanier, etc.  they always pay on time and CORRECTLY!  if I ever purchase equipment like that I'll definitely be contacting them again.
And how would you know who is working and
I sure don't!
She could have another job and working before she would even
begin to qualify for unemployment. Why put herself through that anguish. She should resign and move on. She'd have a job in one day it is my guess. Unemployment should not even be an issue here. Most people can find jobs in this business very easily.
Who are you working for now? nm
Yes, it's working now.
I am not working for them anyway, so
PTS Dictation in Florida. They said that they only get 8 cpl, and that is why they only pay 6 cpl, and yes based upon a 65 character line. That is not my problem they don't get paid like they should. I don't work for anything less than 8 cpl.
Working for nothing
You must not be in desperate need for making any kind of money because that company paid me terrible! $4.25 per 1,000 words. I can make more money working at McDonald's flipping hamburgers!!

Not a good company to work for! Would not recommend it to anybody!
been working with them 5 yrs now - sm
owner is not very organized and was getting paid 15th and end of month but she has stretched it out to every 3 weeks now but accounts are SUPERB and once you get past the disorganization they pretty much leave you alone to work.
Oh like you are working....
If you have to keep replying obviously you are unemployed. I am not bashing anyone. You are a few others are the only ones calling people names. I never called you a name but you called me a loser. And I do think it is funny, no hilarious, because you so angry and frustrated? Do like the above poster said, take a pill!!
I don't know what you mean - it's working for me. nm
I have been working for them for 6----
months.   They are very nice people.  Pay is on time.  Good communication.   QA is excellent.   I am happy with them.  If you have any more questions you may email me. 
Still, would be like working for nothing....
I like what I do for a living but not that much!
You must be one of the ones let go for not working??!!
I know we do have a few sour employees who chose not do complete their files within TAT and thought they could just keep going. So yes, i'm sure they are angry they got fired and they will be angry at the next company that fires them for the same thing. Sad, really!
For those working for OSI...

How do you like it?  I am considering doing their mentoring program, but it says you have to commit to a year full time following mentoring training.  What is their scheduling like?  Is there always a weekend day included?  Is it set hours every day?  Is the pay pretty good?  How about the accounts and platform? 

I'm sure there is info out there on them, but trying to search this forum is frustrating.  I don't want to see messages from two years ago! 

Thanks to anyone who can shed some light so that I can see if this is a worthwhile investment to make (in having to commit to a year full time). 

For anyone working for QED...sm

Would someone currently working for QED please e-mail me?  TIA

not working
Are you working actively, i mean right now, at Transtech. I too have been there a while and they are an okay company but for the last 6 months or so the work has been little to nil and I am thinking about moving around but at this moment I really would not recommend them.
not working
I think MT should be pain for downtime because 9 times out of 10 you are still sitting at your computer waiting for jobs/work to come in so technically you are still on the job. Another thing is that I hear make up your lines and/or your time but in my opinion I think the employer should compensate the MTs some kind of way instead of expecting the MTs to make up time because as stated earlier the MT was sitting at the desk waiting for the work to come in but if its not there how can it be done. Over the last few months I have tried to look at it both ways because my company has had very little to no work coming through for me. I don't hold my employer accountable per se but I feel that my employer is not seeing it from both ends when I am told by my employer to make up your lines/time before the pay period is up because obviously the work is not there.
Myself - working for myself has been the best
Why not? I have been working for them

for a few months and they seem fine.  Certainly not as sleazy as the Q, at least on the surface.  What is wrong with SoftScript?

Working for...
Anyone out there working for ATSI out of Florida? If so, how do you like? Tell me a little about the job. Thanks.
If you think that's bad, try working there and getting someone to help you - LOL
Down below you say that you have been working
for Keystrokes, and are there presently. Why are you asking about testing? Honestly trying to figure this out.
I'm truly sorry it isn't working out for you. (sm)
I haven't had the problems you have. We must be on different teams. I wish you the best of luck with the company search. There has to be one that is a perfect fit for you. :-)
Working for OSi

While I am sure there are people who, for whatever reason or another, do not like OSi.  I believe not all companies are a perfect fit; however, speaking from my experience with OSi, I have had nothing but a great experience.  They offer incentive pay quite often. I cannot think of one bad experience I have had with this company. The pay is ALWAYS on time, people are there to help you if you have any questions.  They will work with you and your schedule.   

All I can say is one person's experience does not mean your experience will be the same.  Good luck on your decision.  Just remember, you don't have to stay if you don't like it. 


Good luck,


Don't know about actually working there.
The pay scale was weird for eScription and they send 6 files for you to transcribe.  I haven't had time to do them.
working for SPi
Miserable. Their management style is to keep TAT so tightly controlled that there is almost never any work, and then to move you around to as many other accounts as necessary to keep you busy. It sucks. Forget having primary, secondary, and tertiary accounts. I hate it.
Now working for
Been working for them a little
over a month now and absolutely love it! Have only had one check so far, but was on time and correct! Good accounts
Anybody out there who is working for them?
Where exactly are they located?  Platform, etc.  Thanks.
