I replied, too
What difference would it make if it was an MTSO checking things out?  I mean, if they have jobs, what the hey?  Or am I missing something here? 
Yep, I got it and replied.
I was just looking at their website when you replied to this, trying to (sm)
decide if I should call them about an ad they had online!   Do they have employee status or is it all IC?  Were they flexible with schedules?  If you don't want to answer on here, feel free to e-mail me.  I have about 6 companies I'm juggling and don't know which to choose.  Thanks! 
I replied to you via email nm
Loved The Way You Replied!
I know this is days after your discussion but just saw your post. Laughed out loud at the way you replied to the previous comment about better rate. Guess it was just one of those moments that I needed a good laugh.
I know they never replied to me when I E-mailed them..nm
TY, replied back. nm
Thanks to all who replied to my post. nm
I read it below and replied...
The link worked fine for me.
Got it and replied back. Thanks! nm

I use both, internet and books, but mostly the internet..nm
I think it depends on experience, account hired for, etc. I was hired at .08 per line sm
but after 90 days went to 0.085 and then 0.09 about 90 days after that. I am now at 0.0925 and have been there a year. I have to point out that the line rate might not be the highest but I can verify my counts, have plenty of work, get paid on time and have a great manager. To me, leaving a bad national and the headaches that went with it was well worth the cut in pay I took. Funny thing is that I took a pretty sizable pay cut but make more money ?!?!
I replied to you once, sweetheart. You've got a
really bad attitude. My response wasn't a big huge long drawn out one-sided conversation either. It was plain and simple. If you can't find the email that they send to everyone, CALL THEM or email them. Who is supposed to help you here? Not that I CARE anyway. Just trying to help the helpless become more proactive in finding their own answers. How much time did you waste on the board being snotty and calling everyone else snotty when a simple little five minute phone call would have fixed all of your complaints? Try to help someone and get your nose bit off.
Did you read the post you replied to at all?
Because they can even manipulate their count program not to count certain letters, data tags, etc. Of course it will not jive with a word count in Word that will count it all and fairly. Make sense?
Ditto....I replied about them below too but just had to say I agree again! (nm)


I posted the one you replied to, and I didn't
say anything about Obama...?
A post was made asking for opinions. I replied. sm

Part of the reason I replied was because I did go to management, several times in fact, and either there were no replies whatsoever or the replies were in disagreement with others in management, leaving me wondering which one was correct, or they were replies to simply pacify with no intention of correcting.  I'm not trying to flame the company. If my experience seems like a flame, it is because there is a problem and exposing it is like exposing dirty laundry, I guess.  It isn't meant to dissuade anyone or persuade any else for that matter.  It is simply MY experience.  Like I said before, I am not a disgruntled employee.  I am merely experiencing some things in the company that differ from what others are going through and I am simply expressing my experiences on this forum because of what I stated before about intimidation coming from management on the internal forum. 

You are absolutely right that there are many, many employees of Transcend that are extremely happy.  I'm not among the ones who have flamed anyone for posting postive experiences. I have/had been one of those happy employees for years.  There are also many that have been so fed up they have quit. There are also current employees who are in my situation as well, but are afraid to talk about it.  At this point in time, I fall in the middle grouping.  I'm not saying it's a bad company to work for.  Again, I am merely expressing my experience, and has been said many, many times before, I'm quite confident that people on this board have the ability to know what is best for them in a company and aren't going to let the posting of a few happy cheerleaders or a few disgruntled ex-employees be the basis for the decision what company to choose or not to choose. 

All I am saying is that if you are the poster who feels that he/she can work whenever simply because it is inconvenient to work the shift you had committed to, please don't assume that I hadn't talked to management about MY issues and try to point the finger and make accusations about MY motives.  This board is about the pros and the cons.  Unfortunately for me, my circumstance falls in the latter grouping and I shouldn't be lumped into a group of people flaming or bashing and told it is unfair for me to speak about my experience when I have tried all other internal avenues to no avail.  If my experience seems like flaming the company, there would be no flame if there was no ember to fan, so I should have that accusation pointed at me simply because I discuss it?? That is what's not fair, and since I did say I didn't want to argue, I'm not going to keep the discussion going with banter that gets heated or flamed to the point the whole string gets deleted.  Thanks for your input and have a nice day.


Applied twice recently to Med-Tech and they never replied. They pay 6-9 cpl and want 150 lph. nm
I see. You replied to a post asking about their pay scale. Nevermind. nm
Same thing here, got the email and replied, and now NO contact from them
I appreciate the input, but they haven't replied to my resume...sm
even though I have 9 years of MT experience, 4 of that with hem/onc.  I just don't get why they can't send even a blanket email out...that's better than being totally ignored.
Med-Tech Resource from one of the banners here is in Marietta, 770. They never replied to me, but
I said "about to be" hired... not yet hired, and ........
considering it just like I would consider any job.... I didn't accept the job yet and wanted to check out the info out there.
Also do they have IC positions?
tia too
Both positions are for...
large teaching facilities with many different types of reports.  The test reports I did included a chest x-ray, mammogram, MRI, CAT scan, and a few interventional procedures.  So I'm thinking maybe the gross line method would be best?
Would anyone know where to find MT management-type job openings on the internet? Have been searching with no luck. TIA!
IC positions
Can anyone tell me which companies still hire ICs.  TIA!
Is there an ad for MT positions somewhere? sm
I don't see an ad here. Please let me know.
No, they are actually 2 different positions
You are the 24-hour PT fixed schedule.

For MTs who want to work 20 hours and under, they work when they are needed or something like that. It's in the other posts.

good luck with MQ
IC positions
Does anyone know of any IC jobs that allow you to work the hours you want, with just a weekly line requirement?
MDI positions
Keep checking back with them on your resume, and if nothing pans out try again in a few months. I imagine they have been flooded with resumes this week from MQers. They are usually pretty good about not overhiring and keeping the accounts staffed adequately so it all stays in TAT but people have enough work.
PT Positions
Hi - I currently work part-time for a company that is consistently running out of work (a bunch of you can probably guess which one). I am looking for somewhere where I can put in about 10 hours weekly to supplement. Can anyone recommend anywhere that would hire for such limited hours? I do not want to leave my current company just yet - only been there a year.....but do want something permanent and steady.
QA positions
This is possibly a stupid question but how do you get a job in QA?  I have been a medical Transcriptionist for over 24 years and would love to do some QA work.  Can anyone give me some insight into this?  THANKS!
QA positions
Thanks so much Heather!  That is exactly what I am going to try doing as well. 
What's with all the IC positions I'm seeing lately?

It was just a matter of a few years ago that the IRS was stomping on just about any MTSO that used what I will call (for want of a better term) the IC dodge to get out of withholding taxes, paying their share of SS, unemployment insurance premiums, etc., etc. 

At the time, the IRS published a list of something like 20 questions or criteria that had to be met for an individual to truly be considered an independent contractor - and none of the MTSOs they audited met the criteria.  I was personally involved with a company that was declared in violation and it cost them plenty.  I also heard about a number of others that were similarly penalized.

For the most part, this IC thing is just what I called it above - a DODGE.  In almost every sense, in most cases, the individual is an EMPLOYEE.  One of the criteria, for instance, included the degree of control over HOW the work was to be done, WHEN the individual had to work, etc. and it's almost impossible for an MTSO not to exercise more control than the IRS likes to see.

One explanation could be that the IRS is concentrating on other industries right now. They're so short-handed in their auditing division that they have to prioritize what they go after each year.  Maybe they thought they had cleaned this up and moved on.  If so, they should come back and take another look, because this is starting to rear its ugly head again.


Which positions and
No IC positions at Precyse. nm
At home positions
DTS America Brentwood TN has at home positions awesome management group there.
eliminated positions
Well.... I'm not sure which account you are talking about, but what actually took place was this.... for each of the .. I think 3 accounts there was a day and an evening lead MT. On the acct I worked on there was also a night lead .. though I'm not sure about the others. What they did was tell the leads that their positions were eliminated and actually created new positions, positions which were lead positions, both covering 3 accounts instead of one... plus they are required to type 600 lines on their shift... which basically means they will be of no support to the MTs.. which I felt was the most important part of my job. You will not find anything which violates labor laws in this.... As far as integrity in a company that would do that to their employees.. that is different story. Now.. what you might learn by reading through the facts on this site...


is that these people seriously violate the labor laws when it comes to the amount of work-related hours their MTs put in which they are not paid for.... now THERE is something that cannot be denied. Please tell whichever lead it is ... that I know how she is feeling.. and it shouldn't be allowed... but then..firing an employee after 28 years of working in the same hospital for fabricated reasons after you find out she knows you have been playing doctor with one of the married physicians on staff... and are afraid she might tell... well that isn't right either.. but .. it still happens all the time...the only and very best thing we can do ... is swear to be better people than those who are willing to screw the rest of us to get ahead....
Editor positions
I would be interested in becoming an Editor ... I have been an MT for 25+ years and would welcome $14.00 an hour.  Please send email.. thanks
Maybe the M-F positions are filled? Don't know
How about QA positions? May be interested.
Went on website and looks like you can only apply for MT. ?
Hospital positions

The hospitals themselves have rules that they only hire from certain states. I have never really gotten a definite answer as to why, but I believe it has to do with the state tax withholding and they are only compatible with certain states.  I work for one of these hospitals, but I could not work for the other one because of the state I live in.

It's too bad they put you through all of that without checking first. It should be one of the first things the recruiter checks for a hospital position I would think.  There is more than one hospital, so make sure you don't qualify for any of the other ones.  


do they offer QA positions?
All IC positions and they do offer

positions are all full
MD-IT psych positions
Has anyone interviewed with and heard from MD-IT regarding their psych positions?  I interviewed last week and still have not heard anything...
psych positions
Can someone tell me who MD-IT is? website? Thanks.
Most of those are inhouse positions so just
They were only hiring for 5 positions

I know that the recruiter was overwhelmed with the amount of resumes she received.  However, I do know that they go through the resumes and keep the qualified MTs on file for the next time they hire. 

The ones accepting these positions must be SM
newbies, cause I can't believe an MT with much experience would put up with it.
