I didn't bother when I received their info (sm)

and saw it took more than a month to issue the first check. A company that doesn't have enough capital to pay its subcontractors promptly isn't one I care to work for.

I received their info
I simply couldn't believe they start at 6 cpl. Why on earth would anyone even consider it? If they can pay on a tier system, they are making a big profit at 6 cpl. Their system equals nothing more than slave labor.
I don't work there but info that I have received includes ... SM

I don't know if they have clinic work.  However, if you are an experienced MT, I would think that they would hire you even if you don't do ops.  They use Doc-Q-Scribe (sp?) for at least one of their big hospital accounts out of Atlanta.  They offer benefits, but I have heard that the health insurance is very expensive.  I would imagine that they are hiring. 

I used to work for the owner years ago when she had another service, and she had the same right-hand man (er, lady LOL) as she does now.  They were always very good to me, and I really wish I still worked for her though I have a good job now somewhere else. 

Good luck, and I hope this helps somewhat. Post back and let us know how it goes. 

I have no idea, received preliminary info
I got an automated email shortly after and received info from Debra shortly after that. NM
I just tried that still didn't get much info
In fact, it was a lot less than I got when searching the archives.  The See Related Messages link did bring up a lot more of the recent posts--but most of the posts turned out to be about other companies--Terra Nova, Transcend, MDI, Keystrokes, etc., and not TransTech.
Thanks for that info also. I didn't
get that far with the application process after I found out you have to go to New Jersey. All of the other benefits sounded really good.
Would it bother you as much....sm
if the AAMT meeting had been held in Detroit or Cleveland or some other place that was not as, shall we say, vacation like?

The management of MW (and any other company for that matter) who went to the AAMT meeting did so as a part of their job. Their job is to watch the industry, make contacts and interact with other companies in the industry to try to better our working conditions and further our ability to do our jobs, just as our job is to transcribe and edit reports and learn all we can to improve ourselves and the work we do. Whether you like it or not, there is a separation between MTs and management and a separation between what we do and what they do. Don't like it? You have a couple of options here. You can work on improving yourself and making a name for yourself with your company as a trustworthy and valuable employee and rise to the ranks of management and then have the opportunity to be sent to the AAMT meetings or you can work hard, put some money aside, join AAMT and go on your own.....or you could just continue to sit there and bellyache about it. The choice is yours. The meeting next year is to be held in Queensland on Australia's Gold Coast. Better start saving up now.
TRS - don't bother
I talked with the recruiter in October and he could not explain their pay rate and/or guide that is used.  It is very confusing and they have a very difficult time keeping people. 
Don't bother with them.
They're trouble.
Don't take the job if you think it will bother you
I hated working for them just for that reason.
Don't bother!
I did not like that company whatsoever. Office manager was not nice.
Don't bother!
This company is a nightmare. I live in New Jersey. Constant turnover. Horrible management. They advertise over and over again. That should tell you something about them. They cannot keep somebody for more than a week. Do not even waste your time with this place! You will be sorry!
why bother
Some companies think that just because you have those 3 little letters behind your name you know more than any other MT. This is far from true, it only means those people paid the outrageous price to test and passed the test. I started a part-time job over 2 years ago and the company refused to pay me what I was actually worth because I didnt have CMT behind my name. Even though I have 18+ years' experience as a Transcriptionist and Editor they refused to pay me the 2 dollars more an hour that the CMTs were getting. So I did the same work and somebody with less experience but with the CMT got more money than me. Needless to say I have since left that company.
Why do they bother?
I was contacted by a company to work for them.  I told them exactly the days I could work and how much I was willing to work.  When they sent work for the weekend, I explained to them that I do not work weekends.  Well, I did not hear from them again.  Tried contacting them Monday.  Tried sign on Monday and was locked out.  Did not get a email until Tuesday afternoon stating my quality was just not good enough.  I've been at this for 15 years!
Don't bother...

Maybe I'm just not what she's looking for, but she emailed me back and said the positions were filled.

If they were, that was pretty fast!

Don't bother. They still run out of
schedule but there's never enough work to do that.  It's the same one account and it's still APEX.  Same crappy dictators.  The disorganization in the office is getting worse every day.  As far as QA it depends on what QA person you happen to get.  Difference is night and day.  If I was already out and had the choice to make I'd never look back.  I'm probably leaving after the new year so you can always have my place
Okay, thanks! Will not bother then! no msg
Run... why bother to beg?
Oh my gosh, please just apply to a company that will appreciate you and stop coming across as a beggar...  Please save us the dignity...  There are soooo many companies to choose from.  Why would you want a job with a place that never even returns a phone call???????  Tell me why???????????  I've been doing this for over 20 years, and I hope to never be in your position with all of that experience on this board begging to work for a particular company.... Why are you doing that?  How sad! 
Don't bother
If you like spending $100 for equipment for a job that you don't know will work out, spending all day at your computer waiting for work that may or may not be there, trying to type 20+ files in 2 hours because all the dictation was loaded at the same time, having your line rate cut to help support the MTSO's lifestyle, then this job may be for you.
Why does it bother you what I say? sm
Not the business for me? Sounds like its not the business for the poster or you either. I have been in this business I am quite sure longer than you have and I still make very good money. I guess that could be because I am not worrying about what the MTSOs charge and I just sit and do my work and make my money.

Why do you care?

BTW, not the business for your? Hmmmmmm You are the one who is bent out of shape and defensive and stressed! Good Lord!
why does it bother you what sm
she says? Does it strike a raw nerve? She hasn't said anything that isn't true yet.
I won't even bother to answer this.

It's "misspelled." And most don't bother with
I agree, don't bother...

The pay is low. It's based on multiple factors including QA, lines per hour and how much of your work you send to QA. I actually didn't mind the low pay because (at the time) the staff was very friendly. It's when they started the training in Trinidad that my warm feelings for this company started to sour. My feelings for them completely soured when they announced that they would be training people in Guiana as well. I don't approve of the offshoring of medical records (and American jobs) to other countries, however, the fact that they put a humanitarian spin on it is what really did it for me and I left just a few months ago after being there for about a year.



I wouldn't bother if I were you,
not very nice owner.
When I tell people, it really seems to bother them
It even freaks some of them out, especially in light of electronic identity theft and no way to enforce U.S. law of confidential records in other countries. Some woman in Pakistan actually threatened a hospital in California with putting patient records on the internet! Claims that software is made so it cannot be saved on the computer are bull: It can be copied and pasted or even written down by the MT and passed on. Here it's a felony and we're accountable. Not there. It does scare people when you tell them that. And it should. I just don't think many people are aware, realize the ramifications of it, or know what to do about it.

They all will be. Do they even bother recruiting in US
I agree, don't bother
Now i never had the tech issues but i was IMed to death and just flat out got annoyed.  Didn't get my last check either even long after returning their foot pedal.  That is one company that definitely does not have it together
Why bother answering at all
if you are a no thanks?

WHAT PART OF WHO WOULD *SUPPORT*... was confusing?

Oh...that doesn't bother me
Seems to be that only negative posts are allowed on this thread!  If I wanted my name recognized by MDI, I would have posted it, but that's not what I'm here for.  I've often thought about posting before, but never have because I knew this is what I would get for it, but that's okay...I'm still happy at MDI!
Oh, don't even bother trying to explain SM

anything like how to find an instrument, a dressing - you will either receive no response at all and it was ignored OR you'll get some email back from the MT telling you that they are paid on production and are not paid to find items like this.  Then they will go on to tell you that they have been typing for 1000 years and who are you to question their ability and skills?

They are not worth the bother.

After they are extremely nice and you get hired, they suddenly begin treating you poorly.  I guarantee you will be placed on an account that forces you to work weekends and they call you on days off.  That is how they operate.  They also dump tons of operative notes on you that are VERY time consuming because they are dicated by residents who do not give the proper patient information.  You spend most of your time doing detective work and NOT typing - which is what you get paid to do.  They also teach against the AAMT book of style which is the incorrect way to learn if you are a newbie and will do you more harm than good in your future MT jobs!  They are very demeaning to their MTs.  Glad I'm out of there! 

If they bother you, politely ask them to take
Don't bother with CTS if you want to get paid...nm
This doesn't bother me
I work there. As long as I'm getting work and paid, I could care less. It's management. It's a meeting. Big deal.
Don't bother testing
They are a HORRID company to work for. They pay 7 cpl and NO spaces... something they never told me until 2 weeks after I was hired. They are HORRID in how they train you.. very disjointed and LOTS of time on hold on the telephone. They are also a very snobby company.. if you actually LIVE in their town/area and are part of the circle.. fine.. but otherwise you get screwed left and right by them.
Did you bother to read...
My post below 'I find it interesting' that is under the original thread.

Go to Google, paste this site into the search box and click search: ftp://ftp.klasresearch.com/klasrpt_MTSO_2007.pdf

Go to page 290. Read the paragraph Win/Loss.

What do the quotes there state?

I think it's pretty self-explanatory.

The post that supposedly started this whole thing state: 'My conclusion, based on my research.' Could this be the research the person was referring to?
don't bother. I did a few months ago sm
and they fed me a big line which didn't work out. I posted my experience and got torn apart on this board and eventually thrown off by MT stars. Now this is happening. Like I said in my other post, I wonder how many MTs who were singing LMs praises and ripping me up are whining about no work, no money, etc now?

I can't find a decent job either. Thought I had one and have been working since May. All of a sudden it dries up now. Supposedly this is the first time in the history of the company. Whatever! Wasn't p lanning on retiring at 54 but may just wind up doing that.
why bother posting this?

if you post anon, maybe that will discourage personal attacks.  Just a thought.  But for some odd reason and I'm looking at the fact that you use your moniker to gain attention, for you to post anon would defeat your whole purpose of posting.

Have a great time!

dont let em bother you, gripe away. you have a right!
Those remarks don't bother me..coming
to work at OSi.
Tks for honest input..won't bother w/another lie :)
I thought you said it doesn't bother you
CMT makes the same rate so why bother? nm
Then it doesn't bother you always for the worst?
Geez! Some people!
That's another good thing about TT - they don't bother you (sm)
constantly with emails.  I wondered about that when I first started too (3 years ago), but you'll soon come to realize they leave you alone to do your job.  If something is wrong, they will let you know.
And why do you bother to answer him/her? Seems you always have to have the last word. nm
I usually just ask Rahul. Maybe I shouldn't bother him, but he is sm

usually pretty good about telling me when the funds have been released.  Some day I hope to be in a place where money does not mean so much, but right now it is VERY important! 

I have been with them for quite awhile now, and I have always been paid, so do not worry. 

And yet your life is so fulfilling now that you bother to
LOL...sounds to me like *someone* realizes they couldn't hack MTing but misses it.

Go back to your *unboring* life and leave us to our *boring* MT jobs.

the nm goes on the OUTSIDE so we know not to bother openening post ...
Focus/Escription...should I bother?
Escription is my favorite platform and I am looking to make a change. I am considering Focus. I read previously that Escription MTs were running out of work often. Is this still the case?
