Ditto, Keystrokes is a wonderful company with wonderful people! I love working for Keystrokes!
I am just not making enough money.  They are a great company though, just ask for a back up account.
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.
Ditto! I have been there one year on 7/30. Love it!! sm
I am making more than ever and making more every day. It is an awesome compny, tons of work. :-)
ditto to anon. Love my software tools that make
I love working for them
I have been with them for over a year now, an MT for 6 years. They are very family oriented. I work on 2 accounts with very little ESL. I didn't have any trouble when I was hired with them. So far, they pay me more than any other company I have been offered a job for. I know they have good programs for new MTs just coming in. I hope this helps. If there are any other questions you would like me to answer, just let me know
I love working there, too`
I love working for them.

I've been with them for about a year.  We have just switched over to a new system that is probably the best I've ever worked on.  There really isn't much training to do.  They have step-by-step instructions of how to work the program and supervisor will probably call to make sure you have everything ready and will be available to answer your questions.  Then you are assigned work.  They will give you as much or as little as you want.  I find most of the time that I have too much.  No ESLs.  Pay isn't tremendous, but the work is very easy and without ESLs production is good.  They pay by direct deposit every week without fail.  I highly recommend!!!!  Good luck!

man, that's like working for love!!??
I really love working for MDI
I have a friend (a single mom) who swears by Landmark. She says she has the flexibility she needs and the people are all really nice.
I love working for Shapin!!!!
Well, i have been with Shapin for 2 1/2 months and absolutely love it.  I have never seen so much communication.  If you think that is a bad thing, you need to work for a company with no communication.  There is always work, in fact I am never caught up anymore, since I recently started QAing as well as transcribing.  Maybe I got your job, Thanks for doing such a sucky job, so I got the promotion.  Just out of curiosity, where do you work now and what are you getting paid? 
I love working for them.. have been with them for YEARS. xx
Love working at Axolotl!!!
I only have a sec, but I started working for Axolotl at the beginning of Sept. and my experience has been nothing but wonderful from their platform, support, QA, work and management.  Lotus notes is used and extremely user-friendly.  Once you get up to speed, the min. lpd is 1200 and the QA standards are high but you get excellent support and feedback to help you achieve a high QA score.  I would highly recommend working for them!
I love working at home...

I agree that there are those out there that think being an at-home MT is a piece of cake and anyone can do it and they are sorely mistaken...I have an 8-1/2 year old and a 14 month old and I take great pride knowing that I am able to do my job and take care of my children....I have never used my children as an excuse not to get work done and I don't plan on it...my job as an MT is very important and I do it to the best of my ability....I do wish people would take more pride in their work but we don't all have the same work ethics unfortunately...

I love working at Webmedx.
I have only been there for a month now, but I absolutely love it. I used to work for a local hospital and wasn't sure how it would be to go somewhere else, but I am absolutely loving it. The pay is great (actually make more now than I did working at the local hospital for the last 3 years), benefits are pretty close to the cheapest in the business (at least for family coverage), and in the month I have been there, I have had OT approved twice and only ran out of work 2 times (for only an hour each time) right at the beginning(was hired for a new account).
I love working for Keystrokes...
I can't answer the second part of your question because I have been with them for 2 years...but I know they are a stable company and I finally found the perfect fit for me...good luck!!!
I love working for TH. I only have single coverage
but it is very affordable and is excellent coverage. I do not know what it is for family coverage but I know that the single coverage runs about half the cost of other companies. They are an awesome company.
Amen, nicely said. I love working for MDI, and I don't get q
where these people are coming from. We have not been slow at all. I always get paid on time, and people answer my e-mails. If the people that are negative have valid complaints, I think they should talk to their team leader or a manager at MDI. I have never, ever had a problem with communication.
I LOVE working for TransTech. Been there almost three years and it's
the best MT job I have ever had. You will enjoy talking with Debbie, who does the hiring.
because I love working part-time
and filling the remainder of my day with extra-curricular but I do not want to live extra-curricular
That is you opinion, not fact. I love working for
I love working at TT. They have been very kind and understanding with me sm

on many occasions, and I have nothing bad to say about them.  However, I have also come to realize that it is my responsibility to seek out other sources of income, especially with the holidays coming up.  I am single with no children, but I still have tons of bills (my fault), and I doubt the electric company or other places will just let it slide because work is slow.  I am going to be starting an IC position that will allow me to flex my hours around the times I am committed to TT.  I definitely hope it gets better, and I have asked for another account, but sometimes I guess we have to be proactive and take care of ourselves.

Good luck to you!

Love working for my local clinic
I have 4 weeks vacation after I was there for just one year. After 5 years I get five weeks. I get paid hourly so if there's no work, which happens from time to time when all the doctors and the NP I work for are gone, I still get paid. I get all holidays and weekends off, a 401K plan, and profit sharing. I'm sure those working for Nationals make more than I do, but it was important to me that I didn't have to work weekends and/or holidays so it's the perfect fit for me.
Axolotl ROCKS! Love working for them! nm


I make good money with them and love working there. sm
Here is why: I have one account with a backup account that I have only used twice and both times because they needed help not because my primary was slow. I do 1600+ lines in 8 hours. I started at 8 cpl and was raised to 9 cpl at 90 days. I have as much work as I want and while my PTO days are less than the last place I was for 8 years, I make more during the year. I literally made $17K more with KS last year than I did with MQ the year before. I am higher this year.

I love Chartscript. The account I am on is wonderful and yes, I use ShortHand with it.

Good to me? I made $61K last year with them and so far this year, I am at $56K, so I will pass that for sure.

No to paid holidays but if you work them, it is time and a half.

If my account needs extra help, they offer time and a half for weekends.

I would rather work for less per line and be able to do more lines than make more per line but struggle to get 1000 lines in a day.

There are nay-sayers for KS. They are strict on quality and expect everyone to work their schedule. Not all accounts are great, but that's anywhere. The only people I know who left were either let go for either quality or not working their shift or they quit because their lead was about to fire them.
There are a lot of people who do and it seems that most love working there. I started 6 months ago
and have no complaints at all. It is refreshing to work for a company that treats employees as individuals, not just a number. I also like that they do not send work offshore and that I only have one main account. I do have 2 back-up accounts, but have never worked on them after training. I am lucky that my main account is very busy, too busy most of the time!
I am not management...I just happen to love working for Keystrokes...
sorry you had such a bad experience but doesn't mean that Keystrokes is bad...just in your opinion...
I love working on Meditech. I find it faster than other programs. It really does sm
depend on the account, the version, your connection, etc. There is not a lot of donated time in my opinion. I type upwards of 3000 lines per day (65 character count, not gross) and only work 8 hours. The spellcheck is medical on the account I am on. I use my Expanders for everything. Most of us on the account I am on do over 1500 lines a day, so maybe different accounts are set up different at the actual hospital. I have never lost a report in the middle, although I read that a lot here. I have been working on it for over 3 years.
In retrospect, I shouldn't have named my company because truly I do love working for them and sho
assume this was just a payroll error. So, that's what I'm thinking until I know better. If I did lose my insurance without any notice, then I would not be a very happy camper and would do what I needed to do. But, in the meantime, they have been great to work for...
I would rather know what they expect up front. I love working there. Breath of fresh air sm
I was with the Q for 12 years and started with Keystrokes a year ago tomorrow. I am fast and accurate and had no problems with their requirements.

They are definitely worth taking a look at. I make more money with them (at 0.09 per line now) than I did with MQ at 0.11 per line. Better accounts, no huge pool, plenty of work.

They are growing every year, every month it seems and do not lose accounts.

I am glad I made the switch.

If you do not like what they tell you upfront, try somewhere else. I liked having the information without having the ask 50 million questions and not knowing what to expect.
Ditto that ditto..ESLs drove me out too...nm
Ditto, ditto, ditto. My experience exactly.
I have never typed so fast and made so little in my life except for at Amphion. Good for supplemental income but not if you really need some money.
I love doing pathology, but it is hard to find a position for working at home. Gross pathology is
easy, descriptive typing.  Microscopic is a little more difficult, but once you get the terminology down, it goes really quickly.  I also found it easy to get lines in with pathology.  If you've done acute care, you should not have a problem with the transition, IMHO. 
I feel the same way...I love working for Keystrokes and feel blessed that I have such a wonderful jo
Love, love, love TransTech! Not overhiring, just growing like crazy!
I too love path & can't find it at home & would love to cross-train into rad in the meantime I do
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.
Love this company, love my boss, very informative QA.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...
Does anyone think 41 is too old to go to nursing school. I love MT but I just would love to be a
nurse.  I have such a interist in helping others and the medical world.
Love, love, love DeVenture
Super nice, flexible and just all around nice to work for.
Love, love, love Axolotl
I totally love Axolotl.  Just as A-team said, fantastic benefits.  Yes, strict schedule, but never ever had a problem getting off when I needed to.  I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. 
Excuse me for speaking my opinion. If those in the management team weren't so worried about shooting off RUDE emails maybe they could reply to a question I had last week that is now 120 hours old and still have no answer to my question. People just blow me away especially at SS.

Don't stretch what I said.  I said it was rude to say get a life to someone who is trying as hard as they can already. That's what my post was about, so don't twist my words either.  There is a shortage of work and you know it. You said it's common this time of year and I'm not arguing that.  I'm agreeing with you.  About time you recognized that there is a work shortage and stopped candy coating it.  Because this shortage has been going on for a while now, not just the summer months.  My post wasn't so much about the shortage as it was about the rude comment.  It WAS rude to those people who are already giving up a lot of their life to Transcend.  

ditto for me
Same here. (actually twice)
Ditto everything you are saying. MQ is definitely up to something and I think a lot of MTs are and
will continue to walk as they continue to come up with new ways it seems to get rid of MTs and QA people. I still think they are getting ready for a merger or sell out.
leave email address
I found nothing to like about it either. I'm actually taking a pay cut, to have more restrictions and expectations put on me, and benefits I don't need or want.

The $50 I'm losing every month on my internet pay was enough to make me want to quit, the rest was just icing on the cake.

Ditto - NM

Ditto - sm
I agree - and when you have no idea what to get anyone, let alone the money to buy it, plus all the other preparations that go with the season, it's just not worth it. The real reason for the season is totally disregarded. I truly hate this time of year.
