Thank you. MDI/ Transend hmm sm
thank you, very helpful Not to disclose rates hey, hmmm. Know what I do, I email first and ask the lowest to highest so both sides don't waste valuable time and would be happy to then send resume or test and many/most do respond.
Any information on Transend, example 4.5 hours training and then another hour of doing  sample reports with feedback.  Plateform difficult? Anybody
I will have a new job, but it won't be with TRANSEND
I refuse to work for a company who is going to lower our compensation rates, send our work out to India or do a majority of it VR....no way!!

With all the extra I time I put into MDI because we would receive countless emails about helping out, that she is helping us save our jobs BS, I refuse to go with another company that is looking for someone to work for pennies. Reading prior posts, it does not seem Transcend MTs are really happy with their company. I refuse to sell my soul to the devil like Dorothy did!
Any info on Transend
Could anyone tell me anything good or bad about Transend?

Thank you

Did MDI and Transend merge?
Is that the MDI in Florida or Maryland?  Wondering.
Transend acquistions
I was sold  toTranscend as part of a package as well. I was happy with all of the personnel (QA, team leads etc) in my previous company..........good responses to IMs, emails etc. They have   left now Trascend for other opportunites. Honestly I am not sure why, but cannot imagine it was because they were happy.
Transend/MDI pay cuts
To all Transcend MTs, I am syaing without any form of hostility, welcome to our world. I am wondering if any of you have the answers to the questions us MDIers have been asking: Is IC still an option? Will be be limited to a 40-hour work week? Will our schedule include 1 weekend day EVERY weekend? What happens if we can't (because of lack of work) meet our commitments? Can we expect a cpl drop? Will we be forced to VR? Will we have a set schedule or can we work when we want? How is the current work flow, is there enough for everyone? What percentage of work is being outsourced and what are the projections for next year?

These are questions that us MDIers cannot get answered. Do you Transcend MTs have any REAL and credible answers?
Transend, good, bad, ugly??
Considering employment.  Any experiences to share????
There was a MT that was venting in regards to Transend on their private board sm
(it is automatically set up so if you enter you know who is posting . . name displayed)and the other employees and management was nasty as h++ so believe me I wouldn't post any thing on the private board negative. I have already resigned. I have a week left.
Address the same as Transend Services - HMMMMM ???

No affiliation with Transend, but that was a DAMN good post and fall under
all companies, all posts. These same "cheerleaders" have posted negative on other companies IM SURE, but yet when they find their place they think it okay to bash others who have not. Very annoying. There is nothing wrong with giving neg/pos on companies, but it should NOT lead to an argument, bashing, etc. When making a decision a pro/con list is very affective and those looking for a new company or doing just that by reading this information. I have turned jobs down solely for the "attitudes" of the cheerleaders. I figure if they have people that snotty and high and mighty working for them, I don't want to be in that category or atmosphere!!
How much are single insurance rates???? Webmedx, Axolotl, Keystrokes, TT, Transend?
Thanks for the info!
I just took a PT IC position with Paladin Retrieval and so far so good.  I believe they are still looking for acute care folks.  Pay is good too.
Now, how can you possibly know that? (sm)
Seems to me 9 months is more than enough time to meet requirements.  Sounds fishy to me.  There's probably more to it than OP is saying.
How can you possibly say that? They are NOT going to be the next
to go. That client in NV is extremely pleased with TT and isn't going anywhere. I have been with TT for almost 5 years now and they have lost a total of 2 clients in that time. Gimme a freakin' break!
is that possibly why...
it takes a long time for that recruiter to get back with you, if she/he does?
Very possibly

Nothing is 100% sure of course.  But some transcription companies are already doing this, charging more and offering quality and doing very well, especially in specialty fields.  They don't advertise as much because they have lower turn over but we know who they are.

I will bet that because of increasing lawsuits and liability, hospitals are going to be a lot more careful about what becomes part of a patient's medical record.  And who has access to it.  As the economy gets worse, the big companies are going to cut corners more and more trying to squeeze more money out the business.  They probably won't even want to be bothered when their profits go down and cut into their big CEO paychecks.  First there was a glut of nurses because the hospitals didn't want to pay them.  Now there is a shortage and they are going nuts trying to recruit them.  There are cycles in business.

I don't want to become a mllionaire.  Just make a decent living for myself and some other transcriptionist.  As I said, some companies are already doing this. 

She can try RC Transcription. They have an internship. The downside is it's free. As in they do not get paid at all. But after completing the internship, they often, if they do well, get hired. Focus also has an internship. Other than that, I'm not sure of any companies that do it that way. You may want to consider giving her a letter of recommendation with the info that you are mentoring her as she works, maybe be able to get her foot in a door with a company that occasionally will take on a new MT? Good luck to her!
Could it possibly be the -
very first one, at the top of the list?
Possibly - but for whom? But even
if we lowly MTs were even offered these perks, who among use could actually afford a hybrid, or even a used jalopy, at this point??
No SE but possibly IC
In our call he said Transcend doesn't have a statutory employee status.  They do have IC status which will be addressed on an individual basis.  It's obvious they prefer folks to choose employee status but IC may be available.  I've seen their ads for ICs and they require you to have a federal employer identification number.  ICs also have to pay self-employment tax, which amounts to an additional 7.5% to cover the SS/Medicare match that the employer pays for SEs.
I don't know where they could possibly fit
they should change their name to 'TRANS-CRAP'.
possibly MedQuist
Maybe MedQuist? I was recently hired as a newbie. As a newbie, they want a set 40-hour schedule, but I was told that can change down the line. I'm statutory, BTW.
What about my message could possibly have come across like that?
All I did was comment on some of the rude replies to legitimate posts and ask for input on other positive MT sites.

Why the chip on your shoulder?

Possibly DTS in Tennessee. nm
Possibly Milner ? .... nm
How can you possibly say too many MTs look for the perfect job? sm
It is those who settle for substantially less that drives the field down.  And MOST cmopanies pay for headers and footers ... anything I have to research and provide should be paid for .. to think less means you have been brainwashed.
I believe it is at least 90%, possibly as high as 98%...nm
Did you consider that possibly they do not have anything that fits what you want or that sm
you might not fit what they want for openings they have right now?

Don't take it personally but if you are really upset about it and want to find out what the reason was, ask them. The worst they can do is not tell you, but they might give you insight into something that you are projecting or missing, something that you can correct.
What training can they possibly have
that cannot be done online?

The company should invest in modern technology, otherwise it is going 'under, 'soon!'

And if you have to go, I hope the company pays for EVERYTHING.

They couldn't possibly know...sm
I plan to continue to use mine as I always have. I am just really going to have to be extra careful! I've never sent any Expander faux pas through, but my luck, it will happen now!

I agree that everyone should be on their toes. It would be quite unfair to put any unnecessary work on QA expecting them to catch it. We all need to be grammar police. It comes with the job!
Looking to possibly hire on with JLG. Is anyone happy there?? nm
Cover letter possibly?? nm
Were there too many ESLs or possibly not enough work? nm
Does this natl possibly start with a big W?
Gee, could it possibly be because there are a lot of people who actually like working
there? You have obviously had some bad experiences. I am sorry for you.
What can they possibly find to email about all day?
This is possibly one of the best responses I've seen

Could it possibly have anything to do with being a HOLIDAY on Monday? nm
Amen! Possibly the most thankless job in our
Possibly trying to get a recruiting bonus. nm
Possibly the whole idea of their email isn't
but instead, to drive as many of their US competition out of the industry as possible.

No one could possibly have problems. CB has said everything is perfect again.
She has had such great experiences even though it has been pointed out that she is working under completely different circumstances than the majority of the MLS. The MLS on BeyondTxt get rated on the percent of work going to QA and get written up if it is too high. But she would never understand that in the glass house she lives in.

She has never had and will never will sent a question to HR@trcr.com and not get a response for 2 weeks if they ever do respond. She will never have to ask any questions about insurance because she knows all the answers.
the Offshore Wagon possibly?
Could you possibly email me at my address listed above..sm
and tell me on average how many lines you can do in an hour? I know there are a lot of variables to consider but it would give me some idea of what I might expect too. I have 28 years experience and consider myself quite good, but I know sometimes the software, demographics, etc. can slow you down. Also, is there a lot of work on the accounts? I like to do about 2000 lines a day. Thank you for taking the time to help me.
How can you possibly make any $$ for 2 cents per line???


Am I missing something??

I meant the MTs who cannot possibly work outside their home - nm
Yes, told double to triple possibly
I've done VR on other platforms in the past and I too transcribe really fast so have never seen much extra in the line of productivity. Yes, do a combo of both straight and VR. Thanks for your honesty here.
just so you know, it is possibly to sign on FB using ANY name. small message
it does not have to match the email address you sign up with. I'm thinking suits could get on and you'd never know it.
What "positive" could possibly make up for the fact they DO NOT PAY?
I'm confused...

So if someone emails you to say DIT is flexible, pays a ridiculously high amount per line, has the nicest QA ever, or whatever 'positive' they can contribute, you would accept a job with them even though they are notorious on this board for NOT PAYING THEIR MTs?

I don't get it. How can any 'positive' possibly negate that all-important negative of THEY DO NOT PAY?

Seriously, please enlighten me why you are on here soliciting positive feedback when they don't pay? I am completely and utterly flabbergasted by your post and probably sound much harsher than I intend to be, but...THEY. DON'T. PAY.

What could possibly outweigh that???
That rate very possibly reflects an account SM
or platform that requires more time per report, or maybe not--something to check into. I make almost that editing at my company, but it was explained to me up front that there was a lot of correction to be done.
