We have no one to represent us who demands we be compensated for our knowledge and experience. Any organizations created appear to be pro-business and pro-CEO and administration/management.

I guess we MTs are too meek to stand our ground.

ASR and VR probably where the newbies go and you get the junk dontcha think
dontcha hate that when these companies over hire? They need to sm
remember the ones with seniority and stop the part timers and newbies when the work is low.
Sewing fool?
Nope.  Not me.  I looked for sewing fool and didn't find anything - thought maybe it was a good post or something.
My sewing machine
is a Kenmore, from Sears, which, as far as I know, does not offshore its appliances and sewing machines.
piecework sounds like a sewing
About your Kenmore sewing machine...
You know that anything labeled Kenmore is a product from another manufacturer, right? Like a Kenmore fridge could really be a GE fridge.

You also know that Sears has entered into a marketing deal with KMart whereby KMart now sells Kenmore brand-name products, right?

If you won't support WalMart, why would you want to support KMart?
are you the same poster has sewing fool down__


I actually came full circle...
I'm back working with the same wonderful ladies who hired me back in 2002 when I first moved to Maine.  They are just a small local MTSO and they are absolutely the bees knees to work for...I couldn't be happier.  Well, I mean, unless I won powerball or something--then the grin would be really hard to smack off my face. 
Full Circle
Was wondering if anyone has heard of this company or has worked there? Appreciate any info... TIA!
full circle
I have never heard of this company before their post. What puts up a flag to me is I believe this is the same Donna Heusner that worked with Debbie at eTranz that did not like to pay, but PLEASE do your own research to make sure.
Full Circle
Did not mean to sound nasty, just did not want anyone who did not know to confuse one with the other and get eTransPlus in any trouble.
Full Circle Transcription

Hello out there!! Does anyone have any info on Full Circle Transcription? 


The inner circle takes care of itself...
One of the inner circle had a death in her family and the world stopped for everyone else in the inner circle to do whatever. Everyone else in the company seem to be the foster child or step-child.
the circle game of resumes and ads

Same old ads, same old resumes.  Nothing is going to change, people.  We are stuck with each other. 

Happy Labor Day.  Or should I say Groundhog Day?  If you catch my drift.....


Consider yourself in the inner circle. She is great to people she likes but
quite the opposite if she does not. There is no pattern either, all a whim. I am lucky that she likes me, but I am afraid that the knife will someday be in my back.

JLG as a company has been great to me. Do not let the recruiter spoil the opportunity to work for a great company. Just grin and bear it because once you are in, you do not have to deal with her.
Not being in the 'inner elite circle' I used to be offended
because they were always posting about so-and-so making a kazillion lines and how happy and wonderful for them, and on and on - yeah right, while I would be sitting there struggling with the really bad dictators, losing hundreds of dollars a month doing VR - not even able to make my minimum.

People should not be forced to be social on the job. If you had a private site somewhere for those who do then you would not be offending anyone. Then you could all go warm and fuzzy over each other.

This business is cut-throat in reality, and it seems to me there are always a certain group of MTs who get all the good meaty work, but you always have the people to clean up the garbage.

Not nice to have it thrown in your face.
full circle/eTranz/etransplus
eTranz is not eTransPlus, and one has nothing to do with the other. eTranz is/was the problem company.
Full Circle Transcription in Acworth, GA. Does anyone know who owns this company? SM
Please email me if you do.  I may like to contact them and would just like to know ahead of time whom I'll be emailing. 
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
Love this company, love my boss, very informative QA.nm.
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. 
I would love to know too, I love EXText
Love Bayscribe and love the pay
At 11 cpl I love working for MDI Maryland. Bayscribe is a breeze. The lines build up so quickly. Everything is right there on the page. Sometimes, you have to fill in patient data, but who cares.... you do get paid for it. No holiday or vacation pay as it is an IC position. It beats 8 and 9 cpl any day. IMO
Love, love Archivus
Mind my asking what your line rate is? Do you have to work a schedule? Is their platform good? Anything else?
love/hate MT, mostly love it :)
i've long been dismayed with the direction in which this profession has gone, and i agree with the person who posted that women have accepted substandard wages and/or unfair IC or employment situations. It's very sad to see how, when outsourcing became the norm, women did not adequately negotiate to, you know, pay their bills!!! It seems this has resulted in lots of undercutting and lower line rates for everyone. I see some companies slowly improving and not requiring crazy line counts and hours in exchange for paying into health insurance. i entered this profession as a single female. i married an engineer and was living mighty comfy and cushy and happily doing 4 hours at 11 cpl in the late 90s. didn't have to worry about not having bennies at all. now as a single mom with a young child, i truly struggle. but i do love my work and hold out for my specialty to keep the line count up. still, i see the glaring problems and it's just a shame. if there were an MT union, i'd join in a heartbeat. no time/energy to start one and be some kind of norma rae, though!

Ah, yes, a love/hate thing indeed!

Best to all of you wonderful mts, male and female :)
Love it there

Okay, I have read all the posts and have been keeping up with all of this.  I wasn't going to say anything, but some of the naysayers are getting a little nasty.  I think that Transcend is a very good company.  All of their pay rates and incentives, bonuses and benefits are public knowledge on the forum.  It would make it very hard for preferrential treatment to go.  However, I suppose it could happen.  What I don't get is if it is happening to someone, why wouldn't they do something about it instead of putting up with it and complaining to the world about it while they do it? 

Also, there are a ton of posts on here about Transcend from this thread that are not nice about the company and I haven't seen MT Stars pull one single post.  I guess they aren't as biased as some would claim!

I've been with them for almost 6 months, and they are the best! They truly treat their MTs with respect. I would highly recommend them!
love JLG
I have been an MT a long time and JLG so far has been the best company to work for. Work flow is constant, management is great, and so far, I have not run out of work. If I have my way, I will never go outside the house to work again. I cannot imaging having to drive into town everyday with the price of gas right now!!!!
I love my job. Best job I have had. People nice to work for, flexible schedule, no nit-picky QA stuff, like "comma in the wrong place". And great pay. RAH RAH RAH...I didn't even have to take any test. Sent them my resume, the called and hired me.
I love it!
"little control freaks with no experience other than raising a few kids"  ROFL!  Yeah, you have that description down pat. Honestly, with some of the ranting emails we get from team leaders or account supervisors, I'd hate to hear them dealing with their children when they think nobody else is around.  OK, so one person on the team did something wrong, so let's scream at everyone!
I love OSi..but I wonder about this, too
MDI-FL...what is it that you love?
I just got hired by this company and am looking forward to getting started.  It sounds like a great company to call home and that's just what I'm hoping to do.  I really need a fresh start after a bad experience with a few nationals.  They seem to have a lot to offer.  I would love some input from current employees on what to expect.  Is the work volume pretty stable?  Platform user-friendly? Easy to make line counts?  Are most of the dictators pretty good?  Do you they pay every 2 weeks or only on certain dates of the month?  Is pay always on time?  Have the changes over the years been for the better?  Would you say this company is here to stay?  Sorry for all the questions; I'm just hoping this is the last MT I'll work for.  Any info you can provide on the boards or off the boards would be much appreciated!   
You will love it!
I love....
You are a sick individual. I hardly ever come on these boards anymore because the level of discourse has sunk so low. There is someone else on this board who uses a name similar to mine and we have been mistaken for each other in the past. But, even if you mean to direct your comments to me, it is of no consequence to me because you are obviously ignorant. I have every right to my opinion and to express it. If low IQ people like you misinterpret what I have written, that's the price one pays for expressing oneself.
All I know is that I love the changes!
They are great! I can't wait! Don't care about much else. All of my accounts are on DocQscribe.
Would love to know if

feedback please.

Love OSI


Love it here at TH. And no way would they ever do that.
I've had emergencies, and as long as I communicate -- everything is FINE. The staff is nice. The work is decent (ESLs though and some mushy americans but who DOESN'T have those)... You can't beat their benefits and I've never EVER had a late paycheck. You can do worse, trust me.
Same here, love OPs.
I second that! Love it there! nm

No but would love to know how (NM)
Love UST!!!!
I too also love UST.  They are very good to work for.  Their platform is their own but it is out of Word and extremely easy and you spend most of your time typing and not entering demos, etc.  I highly recommend them!!!!!
Would Love to Help Out
Hi.  I'm interested in helping out with your account.  I work outside the home during the week and do MT on the side, so that would work great.  Please post a reply/followup if interested.  Thank you.
i love it
I love it!

I have worked for a few different MTSOs.  Spheris, by far, is the most professional.  They will send you all equipment...down to the mouse pad. Tech support is always available and always helpful.  Pay is always on time.  Training lasts a week and is very very thorough.  After training, you are on guaranted pay for several weeks while you familiarize yourself with your account.  You are assigned two accounts up front.  If you have more than 2 hours of downtime, you can submit a request for compensation.

There are other MTSOs who pay more, but I earn a more than adequate salary and am very very happy with them.  I have a great supervisor.  I hope to retire from Spheris. 

I love it there...
I have never encountered the problems that you describe. I love my TL and all the people, very friendly all the time
I love it.
I get treated better and make better money.  I'm not just some ID number. 
I LOVE it! (sm)
After 9 years working for nationals, I'm now working for several services where I don't have to mess with stupid proprietary platforms that interfere with my productivity methods. I take files from the FTP site and upload them within the turn-around time. My small service owners know me, and I know them; they're not just some name on an email. Yes, it does take more planning: I can't just take off when I feel like it because the clients are depending on me, but you know what? If feels much better to be needed. Go for it!
