Good to talk to you today, Mary :)
As some were wondering, I can say I talked to the company.  Very professional and very nice.  Work sounds great and they are organized.  I will let others speculate about the line rate  
To Mary K
As far as I know this is still the USA and you do have the right to freedom of speech. No one can make you feel any way. You can choose to feel victorious and strong for having spoken your mind. You did a very courageous thing to speak your truth and I for one support you. You are a brave and ethical woman. I see no bravery or ethics on the part of Heartland. Or maybe we should rename them HeartLESS?
To Mary (sm)
Yes they are in the same area you mentioned. If you have been with a national in the past, this is different as everything has to come directly from the hospital and if they take extra time, there isn't a lot KS can do..I'd suggest contacting (can't say names here) but the director of client services, she is great!, and if there is anything that can be done to speed up the process, she'll find a way. By the way, I LOVE this account when its working! Good luck! sincerely,
Mary...email me if you can...sm

Let's put our heads together on this fight.
To Mary who responded by e-mail (sm)
Thank you.  I tried to send a brief message back to you at your e-mail address twice but it came back.  Thanks for the info. 
how can i find mary K article that everyone is talkign about?
I'm sure Anne, Sue and Mary are very offended by your comments...NOT!
Yeah Mary picky pants.
Made yourself look a little foolish eh?
mary, is there a very high amount of ESLs? nm
I think you are right. If she truly wanted to thank Mary, a private email would be sm

more appropriate.  As for enlightening us, what did she share other than they are nice and organized?  Woohoo ... that won't butter my bread.  Nothing about pay, which they are appaerntly is so pathetically low, they are  too embarrassed to admit to on here.

No thanks.  As the saying goes, I just got rid of my cow, so I don't need your bull.

To Mary K - I totally agree...I thought you wrote a

great letter and I hope you get some response to it on a national level..the public needs to know about this as is concerns THEIR medical records!  I applaud your efforts and hope something comes from it!

Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's in Kentucky has an In-House, days MT spot
Digital Dictation Services - MARY GLEASON, Stiff on Payment, BEWARE
This is a sole proprietor, who will let you try out for a couple weeks, and then stiff on payment.  She is all nicey nice in the beginning but look out, she will rip you off big time. Do not work for unless you like working for nothing.
P&G forced my sister to stop selling Mary Kay in her spare time...gotta SM!
This was years ago way before P&G even owned Revlon. It's not like my sister wore a white coat and created cosmetic formulas. She was a RECEPTIONIST!!! The Suits at P&G told her to make a choice because they didn't need an employee working for the competition...Give me a break!

BTW, the ONLY reason my sister even sold the MK was so she could get it 1/2 price.

Whatever you do on YOUR time is YOUR business!! (As long as no laws are being broken or ppl getting hurt)IMO
Jewish is the main hospital, St. Mary's is another hospital under their management. (nm)
The best co. ever! Good work, good people, good pay, good bennies.
Yes there is! Good pay and good bonuses and good benefits.

Personally, DSG is a good fit for me. Pay is good and on time, sound quality depends on the account
and I like the platform. There is not much weekend work, although sometimes is available.  I get along well with the management, no major complaints.  There is pay incentive once you get over a certain number of lines in a pay period.  I work as an IC, so can't help with benefits, insurance questions, etc.
I'm with them. Good work environment, easy accounts and I'm making really good money. nm

Fairly flexible but they do like a schedule. Insurance is good. Benefits are good in my opinion.

For the past week, work has been a little slower but I think that is common in every company..some days busy and other not.

Does anyone recommend a pretty good company that is good to work for, pay always on time and plenty
of work.  I know that is asking a lot, but just curious?
Strictly IC, good company, hard accounts, good platform.
Good pay, always on time, no direct deposit though.
Is Transcend a good company with a good platform to work on. They are advertising.
Webmedx hires some ICs. Good company. So sorry for your loss. Good luck!
TransTech for many reasons, good pay, stable company, good benefits
and flexible.
I have looked around the last 6 months and have found nothing better. Have turned down numerous jobs, and have finally decided to stay put. The better insurance plans were announced and even moreso than ever, I am staying put, and my paycheck is happy about that because it is getting better every day. Good luck to you.
TransTech is a good company. Debbie is the owner and a good one at that! nm
Good company, great people, good benefits.
Affordable insurance. Good luck!
Adminstrative Assistants and VanBelkum. Good companies, good pay!
Spheris supes/QA are good, insurance not good; they offshore
U.S. only, very steady work, some VR, good pay, good insurance, no PT, schedule. sm
That should cover it!
Things are not good there now. Think only hiring for 2nd and 3rd shiifts. Good luck. nmx
Had the same happen here, heard the same thing, good references and good ....sm
job record will get you better $$$ if you are willing to promote yourself, search like crazy, talk to everyone, etc., but I have never been paid a cent more for CMT, what a waste, and all the years I paid my dues to AAMT, what a joke, they did NOTHING to better our field, just took the money for better conventions, as far as I can see.
Good owners, average-low pay, good dictators sm

Send out checks the next business day after they receive the bill.  Only work when you want.  It's a nice p.r.n. position.


I know JLG and they are a good company with a good group of people

I joined JLG about 9 month ago and I am thrilled with the experience that I have had.  Although the company has been around for 20+ years, a group of good industry veterans who know how to operate fairly to both employees and clients have joined the company in the past year.  I followed my manager from another giant company. 

I have also worked on this account and it was plauged with problems from the start.  The hospital required the account to be implemented in a matter of days, there were technical issues and the hospital management staff was new and the employees were mad because transcription had been outsourced.  Personally, I won't miss this client but good luck to those that get it. 

There is plenty of work at JLG and I have already been advised on my new assignments

DSG is a good company. The sound quality is good sm
but I don't understand why they are hiring. In the a.m. was have NO work. The afternoon and evenings do have more work though.
Some of the offices were good and some not so good (like MQ). For the most part it was a
The owners were shady characters and they were forced to sale.
Good luck and good nerves. sm
I hope you do well.  I would rather have a root canal than drive a bus around with the rowdy kids around here, my gosh, they get in fights all the time, the bus driver has to return the bus to school.  You are probably from a better area, but they would have to pay me big, big money.  Good luck to you though.
I would give them a try, you hear good and bad, but mostly good. nm
Good for you! I have done that several times......Good luck to you. nm
I have a good ISP, good connectivity, but Enterprise
is just too slow.  Talked to the Solutions Center today and the issue was a third party ISP evidently.  When e-mails are sent out to multiple STMs that Enterprise is down or running slow it isn't the MTs ISP that is at issue.   I came from a platform that was so simple and so easy to get lines, but they lost the account so I didn't have a choice but to make a change. 
Management is good, benefits are good
As with most places, familiarity and building your templates is the key to lines. I never run out of work but, on the other hand, I said in my hiring interview that I had been through a series of good companies but where I was constantly running out of lines and so that was a huge priority for me, and they have honored their promise to keep me in full-time work. Insurance is cheap and good. PTO starts accruing from day 1. Holiday leave comes out of your PTO, but you earn 3 or more weeks a year (based on your lines typed) and they don't insist that you work it. I had Thanksgiving, Christmas eve, and New Year's day off for the 1st time in (seems like) forever! I would say, in all honesty, that the only thing I don't like is that I have to go to another page to check my lines but that takes a few seconds and is more of an inconvenience than anything.
Then be grateful you have good accounts, good MTs,
and a good system. Consider yourself lucky because most QA jobs aren't like that.
Good company, with good incentive SM
pay scale, decent health plan for full-timers, lower end for other benefits, well organized and dependable, good platform, good support. Very heavy ESL, medium-sized community medical centers, relatively high SR pay rate because it takes longer overall to clean it up. However--good producers who put in a good workday make quite good money here.
AllHealth in GA - Good company, good equipment, any info about this company? (sm)

What type of work do they have?  Any op reports?  Appreciate any info. 

Pay was good, 925 lpd min., very organized. Just not a good fit for me. nm
MDI-MD pretty good. MDI-FL not so good. nm
They are definitely one of the good ones...good luck!!!!
No. Expect good things, and good things will come
not good

I have worked for better companies.  My experience is not a good one, but then again, everyone is different. HTH

What you also don't know, is that I have a sense of humor and if you would have read my post below, you would have noticed that I have supported myself in the past and worked 4 jobs. But you go girl. I bet you feel a whole lot better now that you got that off your chest. I know I had fun typing my post.
