Are you making good money there?

Glad you are happy. You making good money there? sm
as well?
SoftScript employees? Good money? Easy program? SM

I am interested in current information on Soft Script.  Is it possible to make good money ($40,000 year/full time). 

Is the programming easy? 

Sound quality good?  I was told it was good.

Thanks for all your help.  Please email me if you wish.  Thank you.

SoftScript employees? Good money? Easy program? SM
Although I realize this post is months after the original post, who in the world told you that MTs make $40,000 per year, especially at SoftScript? If you were talking to the owner (ewww!) or manager, they told you a bold-faced lie.


Just curious
I am still making good money with a natl. Not giving up yet. Just need about 10 more years and I a
And, Indian owned. Not a good working environment.
Worse than Focus or Transcam.
good money but consistently run out of work??
good people who all go to Hawaii while making you work every weekend. nm
The best co. ever! Good work, good people, good pay, good bennies.
Strictly IC, good company, hard accounts, good platform.
Good pay, always on time, no direct deposit though.
enjoy it there. good accounts. steady work.
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. 

I do Rad for TT. Pay is good, tons of work, decent accounts. I know they are hiring a few more
Rad MTs now. I would highly recommend.
Is it good work ethic to ask to change accounts at natl company? Please SM

I work for a national company and overall I've been quite happy. However, they changed my primary account last fall, and I have been miserable since then. It is a teaching hospital, several hundred docs, tons of different rules about format, etc, that change almost daily, 80% ESL, and I am very unhappy with it and making less now than I have in the last 7 years I've been doing acute care transcription because I'm so slow on it. I get paid 8.5/line.

My question is, is it wrong to ask to change accounts? My quality is great, they are very happy with my work, and in fact have mentioned that many MTs have quit rather than do this account, and of course I realize someone has to do it. I'm so unhappy, yet I don't want to appear incompetent or a cherry picker, etc, if I were to ask for a change (which they would not have to do), and I would like to stay with this company if only I could find a way to be happy with the work, because it is a good place overall. Any thoughts on this? Thank you.

Then be grateful you have good accounts, good MTs,
and a good system. Consider yourself lucky because most QA jobs aren't like that.
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?
Is Transcend a good company with a good platform to work on. They are advertising.
I'm definitely making a good paycheck with them ! - sm
no complaints from me. Incentive pay and line differential !!! I'm definitely making a good paycheck with them!!
They actually think they're making themselves look GOOD to us!
very easy to learn - good platform
I have worked on a few different platforms and this one works well. Very explicit account specifics as well so it makes it much easier to do your job.
easy to learn, but not good for productivity
U.S. only, very steady work, some VR, good pay, good insurance, no PT, schedule. sm
That should cover it!
You won't see your money. Come together and get her shut down for good.
Me 3, made good money with less cpl than now. nm
Used to make good money
My income has dropped by $20,000 in the past 2 years working at Spheris, and from what I understand new hires get paid even less.
$7/hour is pretty darn good, I was making
the MT inexperience, as the inexperienced is all they are able to hire. Seasoned MT's know better than to go there.
If you aren't management & you're making good
money on VR, then why are you so desperate to attack those who don't want to do VR & try to shove it down their throats? A fellow MT wouldn't do that. They'd simply say they like it & how much they make rather than having a meltdown over other MTs not being thrilled about the switch....
Some do and have good accounts and fully loaded ESL accounts
Take a look at what is happening in India. For the first time, workers there have money to get themselves into debt by buying high priced items (cars for example). They now protest lower castes being allowed into universities at almost double the previous allowance. Wait until they are highly in debt, begin to feel entitled to a wage equal to that paid inthe US and then, try to form unions, get tossed out into the street and sit back with some Ben and Jerry ice cream and watch the economy collapse and all that dictation come back across the ocean. Timing is everything.
ChartScript easy to learn/use/good line count?

Please post any experiences you have had with this platform. Also,does Diskriter provide good insurance and have plenty of work?

Is it easy to get required line counts?

Pay is good, platform very easy. Got line count within days. (sm)
The people you work with/for are extremely helpful. There is an incentive plan which they will explain to you during interview process. No 401 match - that is a bummer. First year PTO only a few days, but picks up the next year.

Apply and have the recruiter go over it all with you. It is well worth the time.

Good luck.
Is there good money to be made at Transtech? nm
Good luck and I hope you get your money!! nm
Good luck to you! You will be fine if you don't need much money
I am about to leave. The QA department is horrible, tired of being harrassed on my days off, server constantly down, cannot get a straight answer from management, technical staff have no knowledge.

I know there is a better fit for me!
Its sad that we dont believe MTs can make good money at this job....

In the past 7 years that I have been an at-home IC (left my hospital job), I have made no less than $50k and this year, will hit my all-time high of $62K.  There are still good accounts out there, with great dictators that pay .10 to .11 cpl and if you are fast, with great macros and expanders, you can still make $40-$50/hr.  Experience and reliability are what get you top dollar and there are companies willing to pay.   Its sad we doubt those that make the good money.  Maybe there is a tad bit of jealousy there!

Everyone has a different definition of good money. Mine is 50K or more.
I don't struggle. I make good money.
But then again I have been doing this for 21 years, work for a national at nearly top pay. Not sure why the ones who are complaining do it. Well...actually I do think I know why SOME do it. They got fooled by the false advertising of MT schools. Work at home and make $50,000 per year. Yeah right. Not right out of school, nope! That would be the RARE case. And even being able to work from home right away would be difficult IMO. I learned SO MUCH from my coworkers during those first 10 years when I worked in office and in house at the hospital. All of that on the job experience made a big difference when I went home to work. Had I started working from home with just my MT school education....I would probably hate it too.

I make far more money on VR. I also get paid a good SM
line rate for it, so that helps. I am paid 7 cpl for VR.
Point well taken. Money can be a good thing....
If you don't get caught up in trying to buy happiness...
Good luck. I was treated this way and I'm still out my money SM
And so is everyone else. Basically you will never see the money unless you HAVE money to hire an attorney and take her to court. Karma will take care of her for taking advantage of u.
You said it: "They made good money."
I don't mind working hard if I am getting paid accordingly. Doctors and nurses make good money to work weekends. My sister even gets a very nice shift differential for working evenings, nights, and weekends. I get none of that. I get the same 7 cpl regardles of when I work. Hardly seems worth the $12-13 an hour I make to give up the precious little time on the weekends I get to spend with my family. Guess each just has their own priorities in life and mine is not work.
been with spheris 4.5 years, easy platform, good clinic account
Great company -- good benefits, average pay, easy-to-achieve sm

incentive tier, ExText platform, pay by direct deposit every 2 weeks, always on time.  The people in management seem to genuinely care about the employees, which is a nice plus.  I have been there since October and am very happy.  Of course, one man's paradise is another man's hell it seems at times, but it is a good fit for me.


Good luck! 

No PT bennies. Easy interview, but don't remember details. Good luck. NM
Easy platform, assigned accounts, always plenty of work. Great OM and boss. nm

Interesting and long, good money makers! nm
You were given too many specialties/accts to make any good money.
Keystrokes clinic MTs, do you make good money?

IME it's hard to make good money doing clinic when paid by the line; some of the notes are only two sentences long.  Just wondering if it's any better at Keystrokes, i.e., good combination of short and long notes.

I make good money with them and love working there. sm
Here is why: I have one account with a backup account that I have only used twice and both times because they needed help not because my primary was slow. I do 1600+ lines in 8 hours. I started at 8 cpl and was raised to 9 cpl at 90 days. I have as much work as I want and while my PTO days are less than the last place I was for 8 years, I make more during the year. I literally made $17K more with KS last year than I did with MQ the year before. I am higher this year.

I love Chartscript. The account I am on is wonderful and yes, I use ShortHand with it.

Good to me? I made $61K last year with them and so far this year, I am at $56K, so I will pass that for sure.

No to paid holidays but if you work them, it is time and a half.

If my account needs extra help, they offer time and a half for weekends.

I would rather work for less per line and be able to do more lines than make more per line but struggle to get 1000 lines in a day.

There are nay-sayers for KS. They are strict on quality and expect everyone to work their schedule. Not all accounts are great, but that's anywhere. The only people I know who left were either let go for either quality or not working their shift or they quit because their lead was about to fire them.
You have no idea what you are talking about. My income tax return says I am making a good living
So are all you Spheris posters able to make pretty good money there? .... sm

I have more than 25 years in this business, and I have always just steered clear of this company, but I either need to change who I work for or I need to supplement. 

I see they have production incentives, which I like.  I'm guessing you all like their system, if you are happy there.  How about their benefits - are they affordable?  Do you think their base pay is fair?  Are they flexible at all when it comes to you working your hours?  Are you happy with your account(s)?  Thanks for any specific info! 

I totally disagree, love VR and can make good money at it
I have been doing now for about 4-5 years and hate it when I have anything straight to type. I have done this for over 30 years, have excellent speed at straight but Escription is a bowl of cherries where I work. I would never want to completely straight type again, never.
