Pay is excellent by the minute or gross line. Company is well run, everyone is nice, and professional. Pay is always correct and on time. They do not outsource.

I had a positive experience
I agree totally with cjs. I had other reasons for quitting them recently.
I have positive experience's with OSi
I have been with OSi for probably 6-7 years. Lord, I am so busy I can't remember.I get paid very very well for my position. I to have rose from the ranks and it did not take long because my goal was to be a superviser. I have never been a manager before so I learn as go but I am enjoying everything about it - to feel that I I am being looked up to and that I can set an example and teach something. It is a goal I have come up with some good ideas that were not in place before. All companies have journies they must take so we may never have perfection so we will hope for the best. I do love working with the new girls who are the future but we still appreciate our older and middle aged women who are strong and perform excellent work. Just so you know that you are not forgotten. Promotions are for everyone , not just the newbies, but is gives them an extra step and helps them be strong for the future. It makes them thrilled that they have been promoted.
My experience very positive
Just started but first paycheck on time and correct, management very responsive in general, and at this point I have no real complaints.

BTW: If my emails for support were ignored - or not responded to - on a regular basis, I *would* call them and advise this was a problem. You are certain to get a better response calling and speaking to a staff member than just venting about it on a board that can't address the issue(s).
I had a positive experience with them but

it was probably four years ago.  Everyone there seemed pretty helpful to me.  The account I was on was heavy ESL, though, and lots of long operative reports.

At any rate, the people were nice to me, they paid on time via direct deposit, and I did not run out of work.

I have had nothing but a positive experience with LM

I started with Landmark about 2 months ago, in fact a week or so after 30+ MT started and my experience has been just the opposite of the negative that has been posted here.  I already knew the platform so I have only had to learn account specifics.  I may have talked to the QA person 30 minutes and read the account requirements.  I do not email QA for questions.  I put my questions on the reports themselves and review them before I start my next shift.  Filled-in blanks are copied into my ShortHand program for future use. I've only had maybe 2 full checks and a small one when I started in the middle of a billing period.  I have had absolutely no problems with payroll at all.

The only thing I noticed is that my account ran out a couple of times on a Saturday, but I had the opportunity to swap that day for a scheduled off day and had no problems meeting my commitment.  Now that I know the flow of work, that shouldn't happen again.  I did check with the QA person and we talked about cross training on a different account soon just in case that is needed.

Again just for the record, I have had no problems working for Landmark.  I am an IC which is how they treat me (ICs are not supposed to need training and a lot of hand-holding), as did the MTSO that I worked for prior to LM where I was a statuatory employee.  I am a single mom who does not get CS.  I like the freedom of just doing my job w/o being hassled.  If anyone has issues or questions about Landmark, I would be glad to answer by email.


My experience with them was very positive.
You do only have to test once, their service is free to the job seeker, and they found a perfect match for me. I am still at the same job 3 years later, and quite happy. Good luck.
Well thank you for sharing your positive experience!
I, for one, am happy to hear that you liked that company. Kudos to you for posting! There's not enough happiness and positivity in the world these days.
Very positive experience first and second time around
Over all the companies, nationals I have been with, Keystrokes shines above all others, and believe me I am cynical of this profession anymore.
Has anyone had a positive experience with Focus Infomatics?
Nothing but positive experience here too. Pay on time, no hassles. nm
Absolutely positive. I work as an SE for
are withheld, only Social Security and Medicare taxes.
Aren't you a positive person? I suppose you work in the office at HIS. lol nm
Here, here. Exactly my experience also, even down to the 10 year work experience. nm
You really need a lot of experience to work for
I have many years of experience.  Spheris claimed they did not have any work.  I applied, the recruiter called and said there was nothing available.  She called me back asking why I left a former employer.  It was very unprofessional and in my opinion, Spheris is looking for the bait and switch.  I would definitely make sure before signing on with Spheris that you have your ducks in a row.  Good luck.
I work for them now, and this has also been my experience ... sm
Constantly out of work, even with backup accounts. Wonderful company with very good pay, great flexibility, nice people, but with all of this the bottom line is that I have bills to pay, and I can't pay them when I can't count on a steady workload. Like others I am scanning the system around the clock and, as I said, have backups. The work just isn't consistent.
Do you work for KS or is this just a past experience?
Guess everyone has a different experience. I work
at Meridian and have not once been yelled at, even when I made a horrific mistake (pulling up wrong patient to transcribe report on). I have been there just over a year and absolutely love it.
My experience was low pay, low work volumes
But they were very nice. Unfortunately, nice doesn't pay the bills. :/
Same experience. Half the pay for doing work that would take
That's your experience. The hospital I work for
has staff available 24/7. We have several major hospitals in the area that run 24/7 in most departments. Each area of the country is different. I have NEVER run out of work on the weekends and I transcribe everything from radiology, ops, to simple ER reports.
Yes, experience does not always equal quality work!
I have read that, but wonder if anyone has enjoyed their work experience or.....
if anyone had any problems with the VNC connection as far as privacy issues??? Everything else seems great??
My experience is work volumes fluctuate SM
but fairly predictably, and a full shift is virtually always available IF you choose to adapt work schedule for those days and periods when work is plentiful.

Until recently health benefits were available for a 36-hour workweek, now it's a 40-hour work week with some flexibility.

Working that full schedule, though, a skilled MLS (medical language specialist) with a well-developed and used Expander who is familiar with the assigned accounts can make good money, and many do. The incentive bonus schedule is quite good and rewarding to high producers.

Percentage of ESL is quite high, but they're as doable as any others once familiarity with their dictation is achieved (typically they know we can't understand them and try to vary as little as possible from their standard verbage).

WebMedx specializes in mid-sized community medical centers. No Cleveland Clinics or UCLA MC here, which is the biggest drawback I know of, really the only one, with this company. This type of workload does contribute to getting that high-line-count familiarity, though. Accounts and formats are typically easy to learn, with relatively little in the way of fussy individuality to keep track of.

I do believe WebMedx is genuinely trying to get and hold onto good people by treating them well. Absolutely no complaints in that regard in all the time I've worked there.

So, welcome, NN, and best wishes on your decision, Decision. :)
Most hospitals will. Pay your dues (work cheaper to get experience.)

Anyone work for Milner in Atlanta who would share your experience? Thanks! nm
I need a little help. When indicating your past work experience on a resume, should you - sm
include the month/year range you held the position?  If you changed jobs a few times within a year, won't they wonder why you possibly only stayed at a job for a few months?  Any help appreciated.  Thanks! 
Anybody work for PMSI? Would love to hear your experience.
Anyone currently work for All Type or have recent experience with the company? sm

I'm currently exploring my options, and was impressed with the $1000 signon bonus offered, but wondering about the usual things -- quality and quantity of work available, pay on time, etc.


Any input would be appreciated. 

Used to work there. Terrible experience. They may have changed their ways, tho
I don't work there, but with 34 years of experience, their starting wage was sm

just a little over 6 cpl.  I am amazed that companies get away with paying such low wages.  Good luck if you decide to go there.

Same experience...awesome to work for, horrible platform..sm
I've been an MT for close to 20 years and am most productive on ER accounts where I can create my own templates and Expanders out the ying yang. After 2 months and the worst line counts of my entire career, I had to move on. I do want to point out that PM does have some of the nicest, most helpful staff I've ever worked for! The platform is the ONLY reason I left.
Does anyone have actual experience in the quality of off-shore work?
A physical therapist in my area said they kept a file of the funniest errors they received from the off-shore work. I do believe that most of the hospital staff that get the work back care diddly-squat about quality -- it's probably not read, only filed.
Speaking from experience.. you work all day and make nothing. I also have worked for other companies
on Escription and made a lot more.I just came to the conclusion that they do not pay for headers, footers, spaces etc.. I swear I would work 8 hours and be lucky to make $50. It was my first Escription account so when I changed companies I could not believe it. I make in a few hours what took me 10-12 hours to make at Focus. Dont waste your time. They design it so you dont make any money. What a waste of time working there.
YOu had a bad experience with Phoenix MedCom because you kept making so many errors that your work
couldn't stand on its own. They made threats because a doctor complained about your work week after week. They paid you experienced rates and it wasn't fair to others who could do the job without needing every single line proofed. Doctors refused to have you on their account and you almost cost them one. I am the QA person and I know who you are, and the unprofessional work that you did and your unprofessional behavior. Why malign a good company? Why not just accept it wasn't for you and walk away with some dignity. THey allowed you to do that. Leave them alone.Move on and see if there's somewhere out there that will accept your shoddy work.
Anyone work for Spheris doing VR? Could you share experience, pay, line count etc..
Also, what are the benefits like i.e., medical insurance etc??
No experience, but was told that work is assigned, no pools, and it's still 8cpl as an IC. nm
Anyone with work experience to share on All Type? Choice time once again.....sm
and very happy holidays and merry christmas to everyone out there!  TIA! 
Hepworth Transcription. Any infor or work experience? You can email if you if you want to


What in your experience is the most efficient Word-based radiology platform to work on? nm
RE: What in your experience is the most efficient Word-based radiology platform to work on? nm
I agree with Tasha...I am having a wonderful experience at Keystrokes...plenty of work...
depends on work type, experience, spaces, company, area
Anyone know of a company looking for 13 years experience to work flexible part-time shift
I'm getting my real estate license but still want to keep my transcription job part-time.  I'm looking for a job that will allow me to work about 20 hours a week and still have the flexibility to show a home on the spur of the moment.  Thanks, I would appreciate any info!
My experience exact opposite- Me willing work 6 days, regular sched, 100% QA last review- Company: N
Me: Ready, willing and able to work 6 days a week, regular schedule, 100% QA my last review, on all ESL's doctors.

Companies: No work. All ESL work. All the worst dictators. No work, did I mention that. Don't want to buy new software or any software to help the MT. Ridiculous formatting rules to decrease my line count. Low line count rate. No holiday pay. Have to work holidays.

Your post was way, way out of line. Maybe you work for a great company, SO tell us who it is.

I've tried 10 companies in 10 years, and they were all the same. Pick my brain and make me work hard, hard, hard for ? 150 lines an hour with ALL ESL, poor sound quality, and then don't really want to pay for the 150 lines, want to jiggle and wiggle it down to 120 or less with rules.
Well-I don't have anything positive
to say about my experience so I guess I will shut up!!
Positive for me
At least something positive
came out of this! :)
Not positive, but I think . . . sm
the poster was referring to $1000/mo. since that was the original amount in question.
Mostly positive
It is very different from medical transcription and the pay is low and first payment is delayed, *but* if you want to learn something different and are willing to deal with the learning curve, it is OK. I like the break from medical and the challenge...

I would *not*, however, put all of my eggs (or even most of them) in this basket. Unless/until you are proficient in this type of transcription, you'll probably starve.
And even if positive

Even if you give a positive response to anything someone along the line will knock you down for whatever it is worth.  Sometimes it just not worth it.  Read the comments I guess for whatever they are worth.

Does anyone have anything positive to say about.....sm
Softscript?  I would like to know what makes them an undesireable company to work for as everything sounds okay to me.  Is it their pay?  What is it?  TIA
