Great bunch of people, plenty of work sm

pay on time, around 9 cpl depending on account (without spaces) or 8 cents line (with spaces). Some accounts use long distance with Laniers others use Emdat, others use a different word-based platform that is real easy to learn.IC only, you commit to a set amount of lines per day, 24 hour turnaround time, they leave you alone to do your work. I would have stayed forever but I needed the benefits.

Great bunch of people to work with, pay on time, my only problem is that QA is paid by line instead
of by the hour and you must listen to all reports 100% instead of just jumping and filling in the QA markers.
Good accounts, great people, plenty of work. sm

I'm past that "honeymoon" stage of the first few months that another poster mentioned.  I still find them to be the best for me.  Never run out of work, always there for questions, including timely responses, great people (QA and otherwise). 

I'd highly suggest contacting either your supervisor or Jane (as she offered) about lack of work.  As you should see on the daily reports, there is plenty of work out there. 

Good luck & I hope it works out for you. 

Pay is a bit low, but great bunch of people. sm

Clinic work is super easy -- 7 to 7-1/2 cpl -- and I think acute care pays 8-1/2 cpl.  They pay once a week, direct deposit, work is done in Word.

Hope this helps.


It's a great company with plenty of work!
Pick your own schedule; they'll match current pay rate, tons of work, good-to-great money; nice people. Stuff posted on here is old and from dirtbags who couldn't hack it there!
Yep, plenty of people will work for that.
Recently a bunch of new MTs posted that they are working for a company making 4 cpl for transcription and 1.25 cpl for editing. I about died. As long as people keep accepting these wages, they are only going to keep going down. What need is there to pay 8 or 9 cpl when they can get MTs to work for 4 or 5?
Great benefits, plenty of work, pay on time
Depending on experience, slightly above-average pay. I used to be with a company where I would have given my right arm for those few simple things. As for the posts below regarding line count, IF this (or any other concern) was affecting my work, there's a new invention called a telephone that comes in handy when wanting to address concerns (and their phone number is on their website).
I do. Very nice people. I have plenty of work sm
Pay is on time. Nobody bothers me. I have a great account and wonderful software that is Word based,but they have several accounts a couple of different platforms, so not sure what the others are like.
I love it here; easy platform, plenty of work, great communication
DSG is awesome-pay on time, management is great, plenty of work, flexible schedule. nm

Been there 9 months and LOVE it!!! Plenty of work, good platform, great staff.
I finally found a home.
Easy platform, assigned accounts, always plenty of work. Great OM and boss. nm

Great people to work for, but I had to leave due to lack of work. Hopefully that has changed. SM
Most of us who do not live in California had to go IC. When I was there, they did not have statutory status, although they told me they did when they hired me. Their pay for VR is VERY low, not a living wage. Many of the folks in the office are ex-YOG and great to work for/with. Good luck.
The people are great to work with
and the pay is good and on time. I do find the work isn't as steady as I'd like though, but hey, that's the MT business, right?
s/l Amphion to me. Great bunch and then some!!
Bless them:)
Why not do it yourself instead of getting a bunch of people?
That is what I did, and I don't have to share any profit with anyone. It is somewhat hard to get accounts, especially right now though. What I did was I purchased a book called The Independent Medical Transcriptionist, and it tells you most of what you need to know. Good Luck!
I cannot and will not let a bunch of people sm
on an anonymous message board sway me for or against any company.  I speak directly to the recruiters, MTs working for these companies and find out the facts.  Then I make a decision.  Pro and con on this or any board makes no difference to me at all.  If I make a bad move, I get out of there fast.  I will know in 1 week whether or not I'm going to make any money.  As you obviously have found out, taking notice of what people say here leads you down bad paths.
I work for Allegiant too - great people and a
Good! Great people to work for!
They are a wonderful bunch of people!! However,

having said that....... unfortunately, the pay is extremel low for QA.  I do not know what it is for MTs or even if they have US MTs.  The work is plentiful for QA and pretty darn easy.  BUT, even though it is easy, 2-3 cpl for full edit is just really not worth it.  You really have to bust your bum to make any money at all. I don't mind working hard (believe it or not :)) but you can't kill yourself for peanuts or you would be better off working for Old Navy.

What did you want to know? Nice bunch of people. nm
Yep. Me too. Nice people, great place to work!
Worked for them years ag. GREAT people to work for. nm
Great place. People are super to work sm
with and answer your questions, etc.  Pay well and always on time.  If I ever work at home again, I will go back there first.
Transtech has great people but work has been low for 5 months...nm
Platform is easy to use, and the people are great to work with. sm
I only work there part-time, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.  Good luck on whatever you decide. 
This happens over and over I think when a bunch of people get hired at once. Some places are better
Reminds me of QT. Same deal, bunch of people SM
from YOG (sorry, but true), went to work there and everyone joined the bandwagon. Then kaput.

I truly wish better for all MTs at TT. Seems like they have a good team to start with.

I'm sure I will get flak for posting this. I wish you all luck. I hope it is the dream come true everyone wants. I wish all MTs well and peace in the world.
great friendly people, IC work, pay so-so (9-1/2 cpl), clumsy platform. nm
I love it there. Tons of work, great people. I am 100% happy.
right now plenty of work, also plenty of ESLs.nm
Plenty of BOTH on my end, I do traditional have plenty of work, always
System great, pay good, everything great, but most managers from old Edix, problems, poor people ski
when you are out of work, you are out of luck. If you are good at brown-nosing, are tough enough to be without any self-esteem, and have maybe money coming into the household on the side in case you tick someone off, then you may succeed, for a little while.

Don't ever ask questions or have problems with anything. Don't ever have a problem. Don't think you will have any control over anything you do, either.

A few 'good' managers remained when I left, but the new ones were all from the old Edix, and were completely into numbers, cared nothing for individual MTs...if there is work, you BETTER be working. If there no work, you will hear nothing, no one will help you.
I am the OP. I have seen plenty of other people answer
Keystrokes only has around 200 transcriptionists. Only makes sense you will see few names.
Let me sum it up for you, 80% of work is done in India, they just laid off a bunch of American

QA people, some of which were hired only a few months before they were fired, and they just now fired a lot of their upper management.  Something is in the wind at Focus and it smells like crap!  Don't work there.  If you do decide to ignore the warnings, don't believe anything they tell you!  They lie to you right up until they call and fire you.

It's not like we're a bunch of perverted axe murderers wanting to work with
children or the elderly.  It's typing.  Whoop DE doo.  Any FLYING MONKEY could do it.  You don't have to be sane or emotionally stable to type.  Besides, discriminating against people for mental illness is grounds for a lawsuit, isn't it?
Great pay rate on a 55 ccl, great lady to work for and work is not tough. sm

It is all IC work, although you still are expected to give a schedule if you are doing stat coverage.  Only major drawback is the big wait for your first check -- almost a month from the time of your first invoice.


Good luck!  

Yes they do send work overseas and do not hide this fact. There is plenty of work and they do pay
well. Overall, I like having work as I have been at places where you had to fight to keep busy so this works for me.
You are pathetic! I have a great life, loving family, work for a great company.
You might want to fix that.

You really don't have to shout (angry person), but yes you are wrong!!

That is my last word to you!

I will add that getting a great pay check every other Friday from Medware really puts a huge smile on my face.
YOG - Lots of work, great office staff, great money. NM
Great, there are people out here who...

are the sole support of their families (who usually need to eat regularly, wear clothes and shoes and need electricity and other "luxuries."

You would tell someone in that position to be grateful for the opportunity to spend time with their children in that case?  How much quality time can a parent have with kids if they are worried about paying the bills?

Great people....
I was hired by Alltype a couple of weeks ago.  Everyone is professional and friendly.  They pay excellent and they hire both employee and IC status.  When the account that I was hired for was having technical problems they offered me an hourly wage compensation becuase it was not my fault.  Now thats a company that cares about their transcriptionists.  I'm pretty sure I'll be with them for a long, long time.
Great people nm
These people who think 40K is great sm

weren't around when this was a real career, when the pay scale was 11 cpl+ as an employee with benefits and a normal amount of paid time off during the year, equipment provided by the company, internet paid by the company.

Fast forward from then until today and what you have is a clerical job with clerk salary.

Yep. Great people.
I worked for them many, many years ago, but absolutely love the owner, Cindy, and her husband. (Back then, not sure about now), the pay was great and I felt like a member of the family. Highly recommended.
Do you work evenings or nights? If so TT has plenty of work
It is not that TT has no work, it is that everybody wants banker's hours. What do you expect?
Great for some maybe....but they are nice people...nm
That was great. My heart goes out to the MDI people, too. nm
Plenty of work
OSI has plenty of work to go around...
...but since hurricane katrina hit, things have been kind of slow. I think they have a big account in Louisiana that got hit pretty hard and it shut down. Since then they have had to move MTs from that account to other accounts. I've been running a little low on work too (just every now and then), but I like OSi so I'm willing to stick it out. I'm sure everything will get back up to speed soon.
Plenty of work...sm
I don't generally post on companies I worked for because in the long run it doesn't seem like opinions matter, for some it may suck and for others it is great.  I worked for them for a couple of years and had to leave due to needing insurance.  There was always plenty of work and if you are a hard worker, you'll make money, get paid on time, etc.  The accounts were incredibly stable and extremely easy compared to acute care. 
P.S.. you have plenty of work?
