Search this board! DRC mentioned last week... NM
A search of the Main Board will show salaries discussed svl times over. Majority of us are paid
Read down the board. Mentioned just 2 posts below yours and mentioned
multiple times this week. 
Company Board, MTStar Search Box, (located below Google Search Box)
Company Board Search For box (not Google search box)
search on Company Board Search For box (not Google).
It was mentioned on this board that they -sm
never pay on time, so I wasn't in the least surprised when they told me about their payment method.
this has been asked many times lately. Use Search box below Google box
A search will show this has been brought up several times, but
On another board, every time MedScribe is mentioned, SM

there is one particular person who jumps in with the story that she ws never paid by them, and then the company does not get discussed.  So you have not experienced this problem and are relativey happy working there?  I just looked at their website and it actually looked like a good company from what is there, and their ad looks promising also.  Might just be worth checking out, but on that other board, you're just never able to find out anything!  I'm so glad you posted.  I also found out they hire ICs so maybe they'd let some MTs start out part-time to see if they liked it or were, as we say, a good fit  LOL

Never heard of them mentioned on either job board. Site
The issue a union has been mentioned dozens and dozens of times.
Someone else is always expecting someone else to get things going.  Personally I don't want a union and wouldn't join one.    Unions overall aren't very beneficial.  By the time you pay dues and then are out of work because of a strike and only receiving a minimal paycheck you'll wonder why you thought you needed a union. 
I'm perplexed. The few times I visit this board, ...SM
I frequently see people questioning companies, negating companies, etc. I can only speak for myself and 10 MT friends that I have had in the business for 10+ years now, we have almost all stayed with the same company for many years. We are all quite happy and paid a fair rate for what we are worth in experience and skills. When I peruse this board, I find that the profession comes across very negative. With all due respect, are the majority on this board new MTs trying to find their way, or MTs who cannot fit in with a company for whatever reasons (accuracy, speed, etc.) and shed such a terrible light on the profession. Y'all would not believe the positive networking with successful Transcriptionist who have truly been rewarded in their careers. Please know that if you are truly talented in this field and have built the number of experienced years required, this is not natural to see this negativity. I have been with a company (approx. 50 MTs for almost 10 years now) and have been treated and paid what I am worth. I'm beginning to think the majority of posts here are from those who cannot make it in this professsion. Believe it or not, most companies can recognize so within the first several weeks of work. No offense to anyone. I am sure there are many here who are much more talented than I am in different apsects of life. My point is: If you are truly educated and gifted in the MT field, you will continue to prosper. If not, this is not your calling. Try something different.
Does anybody have any info on the TTD, Inc on the job board multiple times?
  Cannot seem to find any info on them.  TYIA!
do a search for them on this board
just to the right of Post a New Message.  About the only negative post was that they run low on work, but that could be said about almost every company.  Good luck.
to search the board: How much would that be? nm
Do a thorough search of this board....
bad, bad, bad, bad, bad!!!!!
I'd so a search on them on the board
and see how they treated their previous loyal employees. They can turn on you at anytime. Tread carefully. They seem wonderful and terrific on the outside, but.....

In all fairness, their pay is always on time and correct.
You should do a search of this board...

JLG has had a lot of trouble of late.  They discontinued direct deposit and then have been late paying their MTs.  Recently, they just fired their entire SR team without offering them MT positions, saying they didn't have anything to offer and yet they are advertising for MTs and you are considering them.  So why not fill openings with people already on board?

Where there's smoke, there's fire.  Too many red flags in the last two months or so.  I would pass JLG up if I were you.

Do a search of the board. I was going
after reading the negatives.  I didn't find anything negative about pay but there are consistent negative posts about QA issues and disorganization that go back quite a while if you do a search. 
Untrue. You posted a couple times on the Main board.
This looks like exactly the same thing you put there. What, you didn't insult enough people there? Come over to the company board to try to hurt more people who are worried about their incomes? Sick stuff. Get some help.
Search this board and MT Stars
some posts about them not long ago.  Don't remember it being good, but then don't remember much any more.
Search the board. This has been brought up before, and
a list was devised.
search the job seek board
seems kind of obvious to me
Looks like mostly 'con' from a board search. nm

Go to company board, search ...
webmedx, there are quite a few recent remarks.
If you do a search of this board there is a lot of information available.
Run a search on the company board...
lots of recent info on Webmedx and MD-IT.  Not sure about Hoffman.  I've heard a lot of great feedback on Webmedx on this board.  Good luck! 
my goodness, did you try a search on this board? sm
you'll find them all - as well as the Medquist board in the list of forums.

Search for the posts on this board
about Chronicle.  My own experience was:  I HATED the platform (Apex).  It's an antiquated piece of junk that is slower than molasses in January and I couldn't make any money.  QA can be moody and the rules on the account change often - hard to keep up with all the formatting junk.  The owner is nice.  The office staff is nice.  Tech support is so-so as far as helpfulness.  I did not like that I had to stop all Java updates and go back to an older version of Java, which really slowed my system down.  Pay was on time and direct deposit.  The account was okay, it was clinic and good cents per line, but there were a lot of cherrypickers who would scoop out the good reports and leave the junk for other people.  I think Chronicle may have another platform besides Apex, but I am not familiar with it - you can always ask them.
Search the board here. Lots of comments! nm
Company Board, search not in Google box, but box below it
did you try Search For box (not Google) on Company Board

Good luck, hope it turns your way and she is blackballed.
Search on the company board. Lots of posts.
Do a search of this board. Type in "focus infomatics."

Start reading. This is an Indian based company. There were recent posts over the past few days about this company.
I think someone on the Main Board had this problem a short time ago. Maybe a search there will show
