Diskriter employee

In Reply to: DISKRITER.....ANY INFO??? - mt

I am an employee of Diskriter and have been so since July 2006. They are really wonderful to work for. They are very understanding of being a mother especially. Their insurance it a little expensive, but it is probably the best around. I would recommend them to anyone. The pay rate is pretty average for the profession.

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.

I am starting with Diskriter mid July.  I also got you email today.  Keep in touch.  It is good to hear fellow employees. 
Diskriter employee
I work for Diskriter right now and I have to say my primary account has only 1 ESL and he is British. So...his accent isn't all that bad. I really like working there and I would recommend them. Now sometimes it is hard to meet the 1200 lines. It's just some days are better than others for me.
Diskriter employee
I am currently working for Diskriter and I love them. They are very nice to work for. I have a really good QA team and my supervisor is great. My primary account has very little ESLs, practically none. But, my secondary has quite a few. Anyway, once you get used to them they aren't too bad. I would recommend Diskriter. The pay basically average and the ability to make your line count really depends on you. But...again...I like it here and would recommend them as an employer. Pretty good insurance too.
My skills are gone. I am a Diskriter employee
I have worked for Diskriter right out of school for awhile now.  In the past 3 months, I have failed over 25 employment tests.  At first, I thought how could this be I work for a national company, Diskriter, so how come I cannot pass an employment test.  How can I get the skills to pass an employment test?  When hired at Diskriter, I only took a written test.  Q and A at Diskriter barely exists.  I thought this was a dream job, but now I am limited because I cannot pass an employment test.  Am I the only one in this situation?  At Diskriter the important thing is making 1200 lines per day.  If you make your line count, you can send everything to the site, which I have done to make my line count.  Now it is coming back to haunt me.  Please do not judge me.  All I want to do now is get a better job.  Diskriter is not the company for me, even though QA is nonexistent.  Thanks
Is Diskriter really employee owned?

My perceptions were that they are one of the most coercive and oppressive companies I have ever interviewed with -- things like.....  drug testing as a ROUTINE part of the application, very adamant about working your assigned shift and contacting you if you're not typing, not allowing you to have anything on your machine (including your own word expander).  Is the employee owned thing a gimmick or business angle?  I would think an employee owned company would be more pro-employee. 

Diskriter hospital employee
Is there anyone working on the hospital accounts through DR? I would like more information from those that are currently working or have previously worked on the hospital side. Good, bad, and ugly. Thanks!

Diskriter hospital employee
I wanted to post this again as nobody responded to my previous post. Does anyone work as a hospital employee through Diskriter? If you are currently working for Diskriter at all, could you give me some insight on the company and benefits from your perspective? Thanks!
To be a hospital employee (Diskriter), do you have
Diskriter-Hospital Employee Status

I've recently accepted a hospital employee status position with Diskriter.  Is there anyone else out there that works one of these positions that would be willing to network with me?

Diskriter, contractor or regular employee
I was just wondering if Diskriter hires on an IC basis or as a regular company employee? 
anyone work as hospital employee for/through Diskriter?
Was wondering how that works out, if that setup is better than working for a service. Better benefits, workload?
Only if you work directly for their hospitals, not as a Diskriter employee. nm
I'm a new hospital employee through Diskriter and you are correct. Ins kicks in 1st month after h
You cant beat the benefits and that is why I chose hospital. You get PTO, holiday pay, downtime pay, and sick time. The insurance is one of the best out there.
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!
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
Only employee and statutory employee..no IC

Run do not walk!  Are they still offering 8 cpl? Even for their difficult accounts, with tons of ESL you cannot understand.  Hard to make line count because if you're good they move you around all over the place.  QA not bad, pretty nice ladies in that department.  But I did hear recently that the one with the initials RP left and that was a blessing.  And their incentive sucks.  Benefits were always costly, but they did have a reasonable PTO.  Equipment was crap.  And the IT guys have nothing better to do than spy on you if you use their computer to look up something on the internet, and ream you!  It's like "Big Brother is watching!"  And the CEO monitors the line counts, and if you do not get your line count and you have their insurance he will terminate you.  They do not listen as to why MTs cannot get their line count either, Oh Gee do you think that having to look up patients on patient sheets might slow someone down? Especially when you have to look it up by number and not by patient name, and nothing is in order???? Diskriter may be a fit for people who only need a 2nd income, but if you need more then "pin"money, I'd look elsewhere for employment.

anyone know anything about Diskriter?
Thank you very much. I really appreciate it.
This is very encouraging news! I do like the recruiter that I spoke with too. She answered all my questions and that makes me feel that if she can answer my questions, hopefully the rest of the company, especially management, is good too.

You should ask the recruiter how many accounts are overflow, and how many accounts are re-records, and how many have census sheets you have to look up the pt name, and account number, or there's one account where you have to look up the pt under the pt number.  So if those options are a fit for you then perhaps you might be happy there, frankly I prefer my demos to populate the screen so I do not have to take the time to look up the pt in an email, because they send you computers where you cannnot have a printer and you have to constantly flip back and forth from one page to the next looking for patients, and are they still paying 8 cpl with that incentive that 9 cpl?  If I were you I would apply to Transcend, there's a lot of happy people here regardless of what you read.  They pay holiday pay 3 cpl more on holidays, Diskriter does not, they pay you a cumulative incentive, Diskriter does not, and the platform is great to work in.  And the line count is right on.  But to each it's own, frankly I would not roll out of bed for anything less than 9 cpl!  Oh, and if you can wait a month to be paid, did the recruiter happen to mention that?Depending on what shift you work, especially it if it 2nd and weekends, it's like a ghost town on holidays!  Depending on when you start it could be six weeks before you see your first paycheck.  I understand there are a couple of leads that are the leads from hell!  The downside of Transcend is the 120 day wait for benefits, and the year to start building up vacation, but I would rather take the xtras $$$!  For me they were not a fit, but they can be for others, good luck to you! 

Get off them. I work for them and I am leaving for reasons other than business. They want simply the best, that is why they hired me. Go back to bashing MQ and get off Diskriter, a very innovative company. And hell no, I am not a recruiter, they prefer quality over quantity so get good at it or get out.
dont waste your time. Apply at Amphion or some other reputable company that does not send the bulk of their work and their biggest accounts overseas to be done and leaves the recorded, the small accounts, the bad quality and the work that you make the least money on for the people in the US! Go to somewhere where you have a chance to make a decent living and get some decent work.

The platform is easy to learn, paid training with decent line count for 65 char/line , and I have the best supervisor I've ever had who actually LISTENS and helps me out!  Try them out!

Try Diskriter as

I left an in-house job to work full time at home. I am an employee of the hospital, but Diskriter manages work flow, etc.   Benefits are SO much better than the MTSOs with low-cost health insurance, vision, dental, life, retirement, etc.   The benefits will vary depending on which hospital you are employed at, but generally I would think they would be still much better  and less expensive than a national.   Also, you work on only your hospital, so you just have one account.  

I know Diskriter had an add on MTjobs about a week or 10 days ago.  They were hiring 15 MTs for a Florida Hospital.  Hope this helps.  


I love Diskriter too.  You won't see many posts, they might over-hire and bust up our good thing.  They have been very, very good to me. 
Unless your back is in need of having holes punched in it, I suggest staying very far away.
Diskriter is so sad...

Okay, lets think about just that.  If they have competent IT support, this should not be an issue.  Do they not have virus programs to protect themselves?  Do those of you working for this company not get that other services do not put this restriction on you and let you do your job without the hassle and they have no HIPAA issues?  It is their equipment, no doubt, but they lack ability to maintain equipment adequately and are always fearful of the MTs interacting.  

This company is located not too far from my home and I have worked for them, both in the office and at home.  They had great potential, but it is so sad how they lack the funds, knowledge and understanding of what makes a transcription service efficient, proficient, and money making.  

I currently work at diskriter, haven't been there long, but they have a lot of work and have been a good place to work so far. They also pay you for any time down time so I would imagine you wouldn't run out too often.
I left Diskriter because you could never hear anything. I was on an account that was rerecorded. The sound was awful. At that time they did not pay for down time. However, I did read somewhere, maybe here, that they got in trouble with the labor board awhile ago for something. Not sure what.

Don't know much about Webmedx, sorry.
Bad experience with them years ago, but I doubt that their corporate mentality has changed, nor the core group of people.  I would avoid them.
OSI or Diskriter?

I am at my wits end trying to find a company that fit. I have offers from OSi and Diskriter. I already took the physical, background check, etc for Diskriter. I really want to make an informed decision. A friend of mine worked for OSI, and she constantly complained of no work and computer problems due to their software.  I do not have much information on Diskriter, except information regarding FBI check.  Thanks for all and any opinions.




I have worked for both, so I can give you my honest opinion.  I left Diskriter for incredible mismanagement issues as well as poor quality dictation.  I actually worked in their office in doing QA and transcribing before going home as an MT since they are not far away.  Things never improved.

Best wishes and good luck to you.

Has anyone worked for Diskriter, or have any information on them?  Thanks!

I talked to very nice recruiter.  They offered 1.05 to 1.25 per report for radiology. Don't know about other report types.  I turned it down thinking the pay was not high enough, but now I think it looked pretty good because the recruiter said those particular radiologists read a lot of norms and short reports.  I just wasn't sure at the time. 



Has anyone here ever worked for Diskriter?


  Anyone currently working for Diskriter? Thinking of applying and would like any and all information on them, pros and cons.


Agree with the post aboard and to add to it, they lie. you cannot trust your supervisor with concerns you have,,,,,,,,,,,,they promise to look into and never do. I am just hanging on until I finish college.
Yes, I too am an ex-diskriter
Run like you stole something!!!!!!!!!
Does anyone here work for Diskriter or now their reputation?
Just wondering if there is any flexiblility with Diskriter's schedule.  Guess what I mean to ask is, do they allow split shifts. 
 you might want to check the archives on this company
Diskriter  employee
I think they sound pretty good too. I know you can get jobs through them with hospital benefits that look awesome compared to other companies. I did read an ad of theirs that listed about 6 or 7 states that they can't hire from though.
 if you can't say something nice.......................sorry I can't.
Would anyone be willing to share their experience with Diskriter. The good, bad and ugly. Thanks!
Can anyone say how long it generally takes Diskriter to respond after sending in an employment test? Thanks much.
Thanks to both of you for the reply. Jeannal, all and all how is it going?
