Sue and Debbie
Maybe if Sue would actually LEAVE things would be okay, but right now the company is going downhill FAST. Debbie is back AGAIN and with her disorganization things will NEVER change.

If you want to be happy with where you work (at least most of the time) then you need to continue looking because these two companies are not the places to work. Think about it, why are they always hiring more and more people? Itís called HIGH TURNOVER!
when was Debbie gone??nm
You should ask Debbie
Any concern especially with regard to below.... ask.
Is the air time card also called an express card? Do they have cards that you just pay a monthly fee for and not through your cell phone but like through a satellite dish or something?
Debbie is a schemer, nothing more!
I could swear when we first checked out her pay me to take surveys MLM scam site before she had previously worked at Bloomingdale's or Nordstroms, but I do not recall that she had worked there for 20 years or had worked anywhere for 20 years. Seems to me she had references from several people she had supposedly worked with from several different places all swearing up and down what a wonderful and qualified employee she was (too much so, if you get my drift). I don't recall ANY of those said jobs being QA positions, more like sales or clerical. She seems to have had a lot of jobs for someone her age who worked for 1 company for 20+ years.

My point here is that this gal was operating a pyramid scheme just a couple months ago. Her original site was Join here and pay $20 to take survey's about our MT business, and then refer people to me and you will get $5.00 per person who signs up under your name. I don't believe she is interested in any of this information being factual, she just wants to collect it (along with our personal data) so she can make money by selling it to God only knows whom, probably costing us our jobs or at the very least a whole lot of aggravation with e-mail boxes being filled with spam from other companies. Her only goal (in my opinion) is to make money in a marketing scheme. I guess she thinks the national MT companies are going to pay her for this data just because she collected it? She will claim its accuracy because she did a survey? I also find it odd that while she talks about QA this and QA that, it seems to me what she really means is quality control - and that is a big difference, odd she would not know the difference, isn't it?

Being a former Spheris employee myself, if she was as all that in the QA field, she should have started with them. I do wonder if she is still with them and, if not, then my guess is this is how she thinks she can make a living since, apparently, no other companies will have her?

One thing we all noted before, and it is rather apparent on her new site too, is that for someone who has been an MT for 3+ years and is supposedly as good as she claims herself to be, she sure makes a whole lot of errors.
You don't happen to know. Ask Debbie if you don't believe me! n/m
her point is to thank Debbie.
Did you ever see Debbie Downer on SNL?
Debbie is no longer the owner.
The previous COO from Heartland is now the President and COO! Watch out! Major outsource lover...
No, higher. I think like 6 or 6.5 cpl. I would call Debbie and ask her.
E-mail your supervisor or Debbie and ask them!! nm
Debbie - please re-send the email
Debbie told me when she hired me
that she is more interested in the total line count than the hours. Pam I Yam and the other poster is correct - just put your regular shift instead of all the signing in and out stuff. The time card needs to show 40 hours but how many people take bathroom breaks and actually eat during the day? It's not a big deal!!!!! Put your regular shift in.
Debbie - there IS a slight glitch on the 2nd page - sm
where after you complete it, and click on CONTINUE, you get a message in red at the top left-hand corner stating answering that question is required. (Even though it HAS been answered). I figured out to just hit exit survey at the top, but was not sure if my answers were recorded or not. Anyway, that might need to be fixed, because it might cause people to give up and not finish or send the survey.

Thanks for publishing it - GREAT idea!
I find it hard to believe that Debbie "promised" you
So is Transtech the first company you ever worked at that had slow periods? Didn't think so.
Debbie Hood is the HR person -- give her a call. nm

If you want to know the real scoop, always better to just ask.  Someone might pay me $20 a report (okay, in my dreams) and someone else something else.   I understand when people come here and want to know things a recruiter or HR person cannot or will not tell you, such as quality and quantity of dictation and dictators, reliability of being paid on time and such.  But if you want to know specifics of how much per report/line, what kind of bennies, direct deposit or no, etc ... why not just write an email or pick up the phone and ASK?


This is not meant to be rude or anything.  I just am curious.  When I signed on with a company, I saw posts saying 10 cpl was the ceiling and a bunch of other user-specific information that had nothing to do with what I was offered.  I made 11-1/2 cpl AND they paid my long distance.  A lot has to do with bargaining skills and what you have to offer.



I hope Debbie "outs" the entire greedy -nm
Might I suggest that you adjust your hours a little and talk to Debbie. (sm)
see if that helps get you through the crunch.  I guarantee it won't last long.
Call the office and ask to speak w/ Debbie Hood
Any current info on Debbie Hicks/Psychtrans?

Couldn't find anything in the archives that hadn't been deleted.  Any info on this person/company? Good/bad or otherwise? TIA

No one will post account names here. Call Debbie or your supervisor. nm

TransTech is a good company. Debbie is the owner and a good one at that! nm
Contact RBJ
directory, go to World Wide News, but keep trying.   You may have a good fit, and company may or may not shut down, but plz remember her clients are reading this as well.  Will the client base be there in a month???
Thanks! Please contact me at:

octobermt@yahoo.com with info.

Thank you.

If you can get anyone to contact you and
actually hire you and then follow through after that it probably is a good company. I was hired last year but never heard back from anyone and when I would call nobody had an answer for me.
I'm not sure, but I would contact them again as
when I applied, I heard back in less than 24 hours.
UST...no contact
I have tested with them, sent my resume about 5 times, still won't call me back to say yeah or nay, what does it take? Just shoot out an e-mail either way, I hate companies who never give the courtesy of a reply at all.
You may want to contact them, some of us have
been working constant OT...can't imaging you being out of work....
I would contact them at....
www.medwaremt.com for that information as there are too many variables. Good luck!
Anyone know how to contact ELL, TX? sm

They had a post on Job Seeker's board a couple of weeks ago.  Sent a resume but no response. Are they legitimate? Can't come up with anything on Google search or searching this board. Thanks

I would definitely contact them.
and you have bills to pay.
Same here. I would contact them again as
you won't be sorry. I have been a MT for 30+ years and have never, ever worked for a better more appreciative company. I am going to be with MDI till they have to pry my hands from the keyboard! Keep trying!!
Again, have you tried contact TT regarding
your situation? As far as facts...account signifies one.
No contact !


I would love to contact my docs just to let them know what is going on. Not for payment from them, that is not the point. Just to give them a heads up.

Are you suing over a bounced check or nonpayment?  Can anything legal be done for nonpayment? Was there ever a contract signed by you about their pay schedule? Like, you will be paid every two weeks. I have a calender of pay dates is all I have ever had. Cannot remember signing a pay schedule contract.

Yes she contacted me last night and offered me 5cpl with 8 years experience.
Do you have a ph# or a contact name?
You can contact
the Better Business Bureau for starters to report their business practices.  They may intervene.  They may also direct you elsewhere for help. 
when you contact SM
the medical facilities, are you calling them, or sending them a standard letter, or email...

What has the response been so far?
Please contact me
I need a PT job ASAP. Is your company hiring PT? al_transcription@yahoo.com
who to contact
You can contact me at cissy.g@mediscribes.com. I am a TL/Team lead and QA for Cardioscribes. I am in touch daily with my team so I doubt you are on my account but if you contact me I can certainly put you in touch with your account team lead and QA and make sure they have your info as well.
Contact them again.
It's doubtful that Susan was the person actually posting the job ad (though possible, I guess). In my experience, everyone at T-C is very open and very, very friendly. If you're concerned, contact them again with your problem. As we all know, MTs come and go so quickly that things like resumes and tests can be easily overlooked, especially if the company is having a bit of a hiring spree. Not that it's an excuse to ignore your test results and not get back with you, but it does happen.
Where to contact them
I receive information through MTjobs.com newsletter and I believe it was in there. They do have a website for MDI and you can go there and apply for a job, or find out information.
If they don't contact you....sm
you won't be missing out on much.....find better, there are better companies out there.  FutureNet handles overflow only, they always have. 
Click on the link that says Contact Us at the top of the main page. Click on Contact Us again on the next page and an email box should pop up. There is no testing, it's just based on your resume and a phone interview, but I'm pretty sure they aren't hiring right now.
No Contact!
Don't feel bad!  I applied to P.R.N. as well several days ago and have not heard a word!  I specifically applied because I have many years experience in Hem/Onc and I have heard nothing.  But I have had this happen several times in the past few weeks with other ads as well.  I have no idea what these companies are looking for and why they will not reply at all after placing an ad for help.  Very rude to say the least! 
I need an email/contact of someone..sm

Does anyone know the email address of an Edna Palmer with Cymed, Virginia?  I can't get my emails or calls returned, thanks.  I left my email address if you know this and want to email me privately.  TIA!!!

Contact this recruiter (sm)
