In Reply to: Is Keystrokes Hiring? - Brockton

I have been there for about 4 months. I love it there. Everybody there is great. I have an awesome account as well as a backup account. I plan on staying there for a long time. I don't know if they are currently hiring or not. Good luck!

Great place to work!
I came to Phoenix after having worked at the 2 large nationals over the past 4 years. I'm SO glad! The do not pay for spaces but the headers/footers more than make up for that. The work is steady, same account (or accounts) and never runs out. The staff are great to work with, helpful and very thoughtful. Great place to work!
Great place to work
Wonderful people, great software, sound quality excellent, benefits affordable, don't really noticed the ESLs, maybe because I'm used to them, or maybe depends on the account.  Pay average.
Great place to work
This is Documed in New Jersey that I am talking about.  I have said this before on MT Stars, but I absolutely love this company.  Been with them for almost 2 years and I can't say enough good things about them.  The management is fantastic.  The office staff is wonderful.  They are very helpful with any problems you may have.  Pay has never been late.  Hope this helps. 
They are a great place to work..sm

I have been there nearly 4 years now. The staff is very professional and accommodating.  My schedule is flexible though there is a 24-hour TAT, but you can work the hours you want for the most part, at least on my account.  Pay is always on time, the platform easy,and I rarely hear from QA. So all things considered, I would certainly encourage you to give them a try!

GREAT place to work

I have worked for MANY companies, and this is the best one I have come across, HANDS DOWN!!!!  You are actually treated like a PERSON.  The communication there is GREAT!  It might not be the biggest, but I believe it's the BEST!  : - )

I do...It's a great place to work...SM
Everyone is very nice and helpful and there is never a shortage of work!
Honestly, MQ is a great place to work!
I did work for Spheris before they were called EDIX, and I've worked for a couple of other nationals and MQ is by far the best! The grass isn't greener on the other side, believe me. MQ is the most advanced technilogically. If you don't want to feel like you are going backwards with technology, go give MQ a try. I work out of the Dallas office and the communication with my supervisor, other supervisors, upper management, other co-workers...is EXCELLENT. I love it. I would say at least give it a try before listening and taking the advice of anyone reporting a bad experience. All offices are not the same.
TT is a great place to work for. It is not that hard to
reach and maintain a decent line count. Incentives are fair and not to hard to reach. ExText is the best platform, at least in my 18 year experience. Great people, tons of work and the ESL percentage is about 20-25%.
I have to agree -- truly a great place to work. sm

There is always a learning curve anywhere, of course, but wiithin just a short time, my production was the same with TT as anywhere else.  The benefits are pretty good, insurance affordable, and as an added bonus, the people there truly care about their employees.   After 30+ years of transcribing, I feel like I finally found my home.

Definitely great place to work, 2 year
anniversary coming up and I still love my job.
Ditto...It's a great place to work (nm)

Sounds like you work at a great place
That seems like a much more reasonable line rate for VR, 0.065 - correct.  A lot better than the 0.03 0 0.045 that most offer.  Would it be okay to ask who you work for? 
Great place to work - give 'em a try!
Yep. Me too. Nice people, great place to work!
Chronicle Transcripts is a great place to work

great place to work at - friendly QA - pay always on time
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.
Great place to work. I've been there a year.
Exactly what do you want to know?
I definitely want to work.. but not for them. I have found great place to call home where you get..
what you are promised as far as work, pay, and the communication is excellent. MDI-FL should take a few lessons from some of these other companies and you'd have more happy employees. There are far too many team leaders and management out there trying to save face for MDI..obviously.. The rave reviews are NOT from the MTs trying to work for a living.
Great place to work. LOTs of work and (sm)
as the other poster noted, somewhat flexible.  Make your lines and they pretty much leave you be.  Communication is great, QA is great.  The platform is extremely easy.  There's plenty of work to go around and then some. 
QT gets my vote! I love it! Gross line pay, on time, 1 account, steady work! Great place!!!! nm
It's a great place...sm

It really depends on what you are looking for in a company.  This is a very different company to work for.  For example, you don't work in pools, you are not constantly being bumped around, and there always has been plenty of work, even around holidays where everyone else is fighting for work because there is none.  I was so shocked that after Christmas there wasn't a major slow-down.  It's mostly clinic accounts, so you if your work is caught up, you don't have to work holidays.  There is no deciding which holiday you want off or which you have to work because if you just do your work, you get off.  Of course, if you want to work the holiday, there is always something to work on if you speak up.

Anyway, I have worked for just about all of the nationals.  I have been with Wordzxpressed for over a year now and plan on staying.

You know what-OSI seems like a great place to me, but - sm
i have over 10 years experience and they offered me 7 cents a line to start!!  That is quite low for someone with the experience that I have.  A starting rate of 9 cents a line would win me right over.  I wonder why there is such a difference?  Makes you wonder.  well, if something has changed since I was offered a position, within the last 6 months, let us hear about it.  TIA
TP- Great place
Great place to work, especially as an IC. You work, you get paid, just like things are supposed to work out. Support if you want/need it, no nagging.
Sounds like a great place, but I wish they
straightened out that I have been reading about here for months and offer some PTO the first year. Everybody needs at least a day or two for illness, child illness, or just some R and R within a year's time. Also wish they hired part time to start out. Oh well, maybe someday as it does sound like a good place to try out.
All I know is, when you find a great place, let me know,
I WANNA LEAVE THE Q ALSO, JUST TOO AFRAID.   I think they made me crazy....
great place to network
I love it! 
Thomas Trans was a great place
to work.  I worked very closely with Dee and she always went out of her way for me.  Negatives:  No direct deposit, checks always ran late and ran out of work quite a bit. 
I have worked for them for three years - great place.
Excellent pay and benefits. PTO is better than most companies. They match our 401-K. I like my account and my TL.

Feel free to e-mail me for more information.
MDI-Maryland hires SE. Great place! Love it. nm
Proscript is a great place. Nice QA people. nm
Haven't found a great place yet . . ., was with last company three years.
Just new this internet thing.
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!  

Great place - ExText is easy to learn and user friendly. Good pay. Nice, COMPETENT people.
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
It's a great company -- lots of work and great pay. sm
Web site is www.mditrans.net.  If you need anymore info, feel free to ask. 
Is it a nice place to work and did you have work all the time. nm
I have hands on experience with this company and every negative post that you read about them is 100% truthful. There were and appears still are many many times when we didn't get paid on time, and the funny thing is it was ALWAYS somebody elses fault. She even went as far as having the bank call us one time and tell us it was their screw up.

I used to be able to make okay money when I first started, but then some things happened and we all got screwed out of work for some time and then things have gone down hill for her ever since.

The other thing that bothered me is the fact that we invoice her on one day for a two week time frame and don't get paid for that invoice for like four weeks. That is not right! Linda is using that money of yours to take care of Linda first.

She is a business run out of her basement, which shouldn't matter because I currently work as an IC and it is totally a different set of circumstances. Totally honest.

My best advice........unless you like to work for free stay away! Things will not change with her and I suggest not even giving her the benefit because you will regret it in the end.
Well, first you have to have the work to do in the first place, SM
but there is also the burn out factor and motivation. Guess that's true wherever you work.
It is still the place to work sm
I would rather have different accounts to type than no work. Medquist is just way ahead of most other companies technically. I don't care if they offshore anymore as most companies do these days. I learn something new every day and it is never boring. Just my opinion :)
No way would I work at a place that
it is possible I would not get paid even during the training period. Unless J&J is a company owned by Webmedx, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole. Never heard of anyone who would fire you if you did not meet QA on a daily basis.
QT is not a good place to work IMO
It's a better place to work, IMO. The support is better too.
They are separate companies.
It's an awesome place to work...
I don't know about Transcend, but I know that MDI has the MT's best interests at heart.

Have you worked at both MDI and Transcend? My account at MDI has about 40% ESL, but once you get used to them, it's not bad
FUTURENET is the BEST place to work!
For real, FutureNet Technologies is the best place out there to work!  I have tried two other places over the internet, and BY FAR, FutureNet is the best!  They have a lot of work.  Their pay is ALWAYS on time, EVERY TIME.  They have production bonuses, easy format (VERY EASY) and they do not ask for IM, so that means they are not bugging you all day.  They email you, or every now and then call you, when something is needed...and they send counts all throughout the day to let you know how much work is in the system.  The people are GREAT, easy to get along with and very nice.  They may be doing some hiring.  If so, RUN to them!  They are the absolute BEST!
Terrible place to work.
I agree with the poster about the platform being terrible. Tech support is almost nonexistent, and after training, expect to be out on your own. They will tell you exactly what you want to hear and then do exactly what they want, never to your advantage. I was there for 3 months, quit and it took them 2 months to process my paperwork. During that time, I would still get emails asking me to work extra or emails about account specific updates, etc.... I'd work at Dairy Queen before I'd go back there... but hey, that's must my 2 cents.
I work for KS. Its a wonderful place

to work.  You are treated well, they listen to your concerns, pay is on time.  If for whatever reason, you don't like your account, just ask for another one.  If your good, they want to please you so you will stay with them.   It's in the top two on my list.  Spheris, oh no.   You have to get used to taking tests for these companies, that's just the way it is.  Test and wait, test and wait.    Good luck.


TRS is a horrible place to work

Extremely bad management, constant changes in management, constant do more, do more, do more, benefits always changing and not to the benefit of the MT but always to save them money.  If you want to be a number and constantly being looked at for what you DO NOT do rather than what you do accomplish, then TRS is the place for you.  If you want to make money and be happy, I think flipping burgers at McDonald's is a few steps up from TRS. 

I watched way too many good people get walked all over at that company and finally leave.  I lost my faith in the idea they could come back to a good company and after several years, decided to take myself to another company. 

I hope you find what you are looking for, but please run away fast from TRS as I would hate to see another MT treated the way they are treating their people. 

Not a good place to work. sm
They screw you over and don't pay very well.  I would stay clear of them!!!!
No thanks TTS is the last place on earth I would work
