I didn't say the company was reputable. (sm)

In Reply to: No reputable company would allow - Hmmm

It's one of the larger companies that used to be the apple of MTStars' eye until it started to offshore.  They would vigorously defend this company, and now -- nothing.

It's a big company, so I guess in some people's eyes, it's reputable.  When it was offered to me, I thought it was disgusting, and to me, the company lost all credibility. 

They hired another person to work on my account (a former employee of the customer), and when they told me I typed too fast for the account and that the new person wasn't getting many jobs, I finally had it and quit, never looked back and never regretted it.

I found a much better, much smaller company that I believe wouldn't tolerate this kind of behavior.  Bigger isn't always better.

No reputable company would allow
any MT to pick and choose the work they want to do. The company I work for would not tolerate that, which is why they are so popular. Work is assigned according to TAT unless there is a stat due. Army Brat must work for a terrible company if she/he is so paranoid about who gets what work.
no reputable company should ever sm
have an incident where there is a bounced check! Lots of places have financial problems but they don't let their payroll bounce. Sad state of affairs I'd say!
Looking for a reputable company, preferably to do op reports..sm

I am currently with a company with whom I have been happy for the last few years but things seem to be changing. My account has been overstaffed and I have spent the last 45 minutes trying to dial in to my account but all lines are busy.  Starting out the day with this level of frustration is not healthy and for this reason along with others I may need to make a change. Can anyone give me any ideas of stable companies with plenty of work and good pay that do not require weekend work?  I have 30 years acute care experience and prefer op notes but am open to clinic work too. I try to do 1800-2000 lines a day, care about my work product and am a very reliable employee.  I simply need to make some steady money!  Thanks for any help or advice offered. 

Has anyone heard of SribeRight and is it a reputable company that will pay on time and have a lot of
work with benefits
I think you would be doing good to find a reputable company, much less by putting qualifiers
There is also the reputable company out of No. Carolina that's NOT the United Tran with the train
Reputable company w/ platform compatible w/ InstanText/Shorthand

Am heavily dependent on sophisticated Expanders that incorporate code script, like ShortHand and InstanText.  Can anyone recommend reputable employers whose platforms are compatible with these programs? 

Word ZPressed or Keystrokes? Any info on either company? I have heard both are reputable
are there any companies who are reputable, mean what they say, do what they say, and
Are there any honest, reliable, trustworthy, respectable companies out there that put their money where their mouths are? I have been very let down twice now by two separate nationals, and am totally disheartened. I do a good job and that is all I want to do. What I expect from a company is for them to do what they say they will ... if they are going to train, then train ... if they are going to say they respond to your calls, respond ... if they say you will have returned reports edited and errors pointed out, send the edited reports with the corrections ... if they say they will give you a supervisor/lead/manager, present that person....if they say their tech department will help, does it always take 3-5 hours to solve a problem?

Honesty!! That is all I am asking for. Any companies out there that anyone would really say know what INTEGRITY means? If so, please, please let me know. :( Is it even worth it to have hope after struggling to polish skills via these new online schools, as I did? Is there anyone to trust out there? TRUST?
No for ethical and reputable
MT companies, it won't! When you uses something like autokeys or autocorrect, I really do not know how they are going to figure out what keys you actually hit to produce a word, phrase or sentence.
They are reputable. Pay always on time.
4 cpl editing, 8-9 cpl transcribing. Decent company. They are bringing all of their work back to USA, were offshoring to India, but that became a huge problem. Now, they are in the process of trying to bring it all back. Pretty upfront and honest people.

Are there any reputable companies
It is sad to me to see someone covering for the MTSOs.  They know they can get away with anything because they can get somebody else in five minutes or less.  As long as they have desperate fools willing to work and put up with them, things will never change.   
Reputable MT Companies???sm

Does anyone know any reputable MT companies to work for?  I have a prospect on a local group here, but just waiting on them to get ready to hire for the position.  I was promised I would be the first one called when the position comes available.  I am afraid to apply for something online because I don't want to get in a situation that is just as bad as MQ or worse. 

I also need flexibility because I have a 4-month-old infant and have to work my schedule around my husband's full-time job.  So, if anyone knows of any good places to work, drop me a line and let me know. 



ATSI/MT World - Are they reputable?
Find a reputable school
Hi, Shelley.

I am so sorry you got pulled in by TranSCAM. I agree with the other poster's info on contacting a lawyer and the BBB about them.

There really is no way to do OJT in this career anymore. The best way to get into transcription is through studying with a reputable school such as CareerStep. There are others....look through the posts on here to find schools that graduates recommend. Best of luck to you!
Didn't even know there was a company by that name sm
Couldn't even find a website for them.
I know of 2 MTs from reputable schools who started w/o the 2 year exp. nm
Find a reputable financial investment guy
And open a ROTH IRA.
Well you probably didn't reply to the company
but to the scam artists.

BEST ADVICE is not to respond - you don't owe them one if you didn't apply and their contacting you in the manner they did is all you need to know something is fishy
Yes it is, but they didn't state the name of the company
Yes, so that those who didn't see the post on the Company board may see it on the
Main board.  What's wrong with that?  Isn't that ok to do? 
Been there. My company didn't treat me horribly
but because I could do the very worst ESLs I got dumped on.  Work is assigned by the company and there isn't supposed to be cherry-picking, but there obviously was.  I could do the dictation, but it slowed me down considerably.  On top of the bad dictator it seemed the sound quality was also bad.  I would be stressed at the end of the day and end up with a headache.  If I were getting paid by the hour I would have still be a bit stressed, but not as much because I didn't have to worry about producing lines.  My MTSO has told me a couple of stories too.  I have looked for another position a couple of times, but every company that offered me a position didn't want to pay me what I was currently making, didn't allow me the flexibility that I have, didn't have the friendly platform that I currently have, and I had to be connected to the internet to work the whole time.  I like to get outside when the weather is nice and with my current job I download my work and then I can get off-line.  I can take my laptop outside and work.   I still read the job boards on occasion, but I have decided I can't do any better anywhere else, so I'll just accept whatever issues there are and deal with them.  
boy i'd never work for a company that didn't pay for training
-- that ought to be illegal -- as long as you are working, ie, training, you should be paid!
Wondering if we didn't both apply to the same nat'l company (sm)
Did your response read something like this?

We have reviewed your application and testing in respect to our current staffing needs, and have decided to pursue other applicants. We wish you the best in your current job search. If you have any questions, please donít hesitate to contact me.

If you would like to retest, please feel free to do so after 90 days.

didn't ask about your company, schedule or paycheck.
Hello other ex-Genie. YOG was a wonderful company indeed. I didn't know how good I had it. Those
A company sounds strange because you didn't pass their test? SM
I LIKE working for a company that puts quality over everything else.
The Indians didn't get a raise, but I'll bet the CEO of the phone company did!! nm
The company I worked for didn't offer direct deposit. nm
Didn't they partner up with an Indian company? Expect downhill from Dictaphone.
I didn't take the posts as trashing the company, just people venting about no work. sm
I used to work for TT, and yes, they are wonderful people -- very caring and supportive -- but in order to get my lines in, I had to be VERY flexible, working on my days off, during times I wasn't scheduled, etc., and it gets old pretty quickly.  I personally didn't care for the e-mails calling me sweetie or telling me you rock, but that's just me.  I just want to be paid well and have plentiful work.  I do not know if they just overhire or what happens, but I finally left because I couldn't stand the feast or famine work flow there.
Didn't you post this on 03/04/06 on both the Company Board and the Hospital/Clinic MT Board?


I didn't say I didn't care, I just don't understand
why the sudden outrage over HL offshoring.  
She didn't say they didn't offshore at all s/m
What she did say is that if the work needs to be done here, it stays here (paraphrased a bit, I think).

That is not lying and saying that they don't offshore work, as was stated by another poster above, but saying that if the client wants the work to stay in the US, they will keep it here. Sheesh.
She didn't say she didn't have a family. A family isn't just kids. sm

She also said she didn't have kids. Why do you think you're so much better  BECAUSE you have kids?  I am so sick of that attitude.  I don't have kids, never wanted them, but have been discriminated against in jobs because of it.  Everyone figured since I had no kids I could work all the time.  I said NO!  Just because I don't have kids doesn't mean I don't have a life or that my life is not important.   

BTW I work part time too. 

Thanks! Not sure why I didn't think of that
but that is what I will do from now on!
Thank you - I didn't know. :) nm
Are you sure she didn't say she has been
a recruiter for years (not necessarily with Keystrokes)?  Because I was hired at another company a number of years ago and she was the recruiter, maybe there was a misunderstanding?
I did all that and it still didn't come up....oh well
I think there is just trouble with imail. This happened to me the day before yesterday too. To get to the MQ board click on forums (left blue menu) then click on company forum, (you obviously did that) but then look to the blue menu on the left and now Medquist appears under company board and before offshore board. See ya there.
What $125? I didn't see anything like that.
And there's a charge if we return the computer before three months? I heard they were the absolute best company out there. I simply can't make a decent line count. I sent out three resumes on fulltime local nonMT jobs yesterday because I haven't been able to earn a decent steady income doing MT for a year now. I'm not going bankrupt over this. I don't see why it has to be this difficult. I'd be totally loyal, stay with a company, and move into a more responsible position if I could find the right company.
I didn't know that.

So those who are moseying along, getting in their 11,000 whenever, are making as much as the ones who work really hard to get their line counts into the incentive range?

I wonder if there are any other companies out there that reward mediocrity?  If so, maybe it's time to lower my own personal standards to fit in with the new trend.

you didn't
Boy that was quick! Like I said, it was my oversight and I'm sorry for jumping to conclusions. You didn't deserve it.
I didn't get it either.
I didn't think that was possible
NONE - no cable, no DSL? How can that be in this day and age. I only have 2 choices here - Comcast or Verizon DSL. Verizon is out for me and it is a drag when Comcast has outages all the time.

I do work on an a/c where I've worked using dial-up with Comcast down - uses Quadris with VPN server. Worked just fine on dial-up. No problem getting into VPN at all, and able to type & save reports quite well.

Another a/c - uses IDX with no VPN - didn't work w/o high speed.

Definitely can't use dialup tho for any voice files. Only for a/c's with phone dictation.

As to foot pedals - try eBay. Plenty of other sites where people are selling equipment.
If you didn't know before - know it now

They didn't used to, but they are going to now
they are starting up a pilot program offshoring a certain number of jobs per day to test the waters in what is pivotal to the industry. Yada yada yada. So they didn't before, but they will be soon. It'll come back to bite them in the you-know-what. A bigger threat to borderline MTs is VR.
When I was there they didn't pay for that
downtime, either.
AND I didn't say she should be, I said

that everywhere ELSE I go they are falling all over themselves.  If you had the experience I have, you'd know what I mean.  And since I never talked to her other than to say You emailed me and told me to call you... and she said she'd call me RIGHT BACK, and those were the only words I ever spoke to her, I don't see where any attitude would come in.

I do know that any company/any hospital would be GLAD to have me work for them.  I have received nothing but praise for my work.  I have worked long and hard to gain the experience I have and it has paid off.  I have had my own hospital accounts for years.  I've never had to beg for a job; they are offered to me quite readily.  Sorry if that bothers you.

Please tell me that you didn't (sm)
use this as an excuse not to pay them. This would certainly be reason enough to get rid of them, but I don't understand why you would not set their pay straight.
Didn't like it
I tried to like Amphion as well, but it just wasn't the company for me. I also hated the DI screen fill in and I found the clinic notes to be dull and not very mentally stimulating. I left within a month and I'm happy where I am now. The people are very nice but I also found the supervisors to be not very helpful.
No, she sure didn't. Sorry! nm
