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.

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.
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.


QT gets my vote! I love it! Gross line pay, on time, 1 account, steady work! Great place!!!! nm
MDI-Maryland is an excellent company, pay on time all the time, great line rate.
I left also because I went out and got my own client(s).
They are very nice people.

The only negative I can think of were the e-mails from the owner say work, work, work, we are out of TAT.

Other than that, which is very minor, it was a good experience.
Heck, no! Gross line would be a great way to get paid! nm
I believe they mean that you have to make $900 per PP to be full time, still paid by line
I only worked there briefly, but great people, and pay always on time. sm

They do have a thing where you have to get a paper check for the first 90 days, then you can have direct deposit.   The account that I was on used ExText.

Hope this helps.  Good luck. 

Checks on time, 10 cents/line IC, nice people.


Ugh - well I did all my work on time and I expect to be paid on time.

The phone company doesn't wait, the cable company doesn't wait, and the electric company doesn't wait for their money either - all of which I need to pay in order to do my job.  I work when I am supposed to, I help when behind, and give 110%, and I ask for my check to be on time. 

I think if an MTSO is going to have to mail checks they should do so priority to make up for the delay.

Actually, no. Most people would get paid at work!
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!
I work them now..always been paid on time
and the changes that might be coming
Forget Diskriter! Bunch of smoke! You will NOT get paid for downtime.

Diskriter made MQ look kind.  Diskriter also has had labor board charges in the past. If it sounds too good to be true, I assure you with Diskriter, it is!  This is the first time I've spoken out against them, but honestly the down time paid claim is bogus.

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. 
Can you elaborate? Do you get paid on time? Do you have enough work? sm
Are you radiology or acute care? What kind of problems?
Umm, I am paid every other Friday, on time. Work
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.
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. 

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.
Great little company..I worked there for a short time, IC, and pay always on time, great owner too!
I had good dictators, they use FTP, and I had a 12-hour window to return the work.
I did some work ON MY TIME helping them and Rebecca never paid me either.
Bad way to run a company.
Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
If they are so great why do you work there part time?
RE: If they are so great why do you work there part time?
Because I choose to.
Oh, yea -- PAID, too. Grandmother PAID LEAVE would be a great drawing card to TT !!

Just love that PAID TIME OFF !!

To some people the line count is VERY important. Used to work with (sm)
a girl who would scan the system for normals and special assign them to herself. The boss had us print out a daily log of what we had typed, she would only do this every 2 days, making it look like she had a productive day, when in fact she had been outside smoking or in the bathroom taking 40 winks most of the day.
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).
great place to work at - friendly QA - pay always on time
KS people who work on accounts with lag time (sm)
I have been having the phone line go dead and sometimes I can call right back and get my report and sometimes I lose it.  I have had my cable people out here several days in a row, and they can find nothing wrong.  I was wondering if this happens to others - and maybe it is a problem with the hospital line we use - not actually the line in my home.  I appreciate any input.  (I am new on this account so do not have enough history to know.) 
Awesome small company! Paid on time every 2 weeks. Plenty of work!
Owner is great. I would recommend this company to anyone who wanted to be paid what they are worth and paid on time!
Decent company, good people, pay on time, work low sometimes. nm
People at TT have been paid! People who haven't well, maybe you did not make count and your check
after insurance deduction. Maybe your bank is holding it. Maybe anything! But we GOT PAID. This is NO LIE. And I am sick of this board. Nothing but disgruntled exemployees arguing with employees who like their job. Ugggg. I am working. BTW: THERE IS WORK (clears throat) remember that? Work?
DSG is awesome-pay on time, management is great, plenty of work, flexible schedule. nm

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.
Looking for part-time work with good line rate.

I have loads of acute care experience and I am dependable.  I never miss a day of work, willing to work weekends, etc. I am looking for a dependable company with steady work.  Any ideas?

The only time I work OT, they offer 1-1/2 times my line rate which is OT pay IMO. sm
I rarely, rarely work OT though as I have kids in sports and a husband who works strange hours.
SO right! People who get paid to bring people on-board -sm
to these companies (few, if any, are 100% honest, it seems), are going to be honest and tell you anything that isn't rosy and sugar-coated. Having a good prospective MT walk because the company isn't so great means less green dollars in their bank account every month. They're not going to tell us anything that DOESN'T make them more money.
