Never would. BUT I am not an MTSO. I work as an employee for a company and I see everything sm
that I mentioned in my first post routinely. I don't mean to include all by no means, but don't try to make this out as a dream job. It has already been done and that is just one of of the reasons we are in the sad state we are in.
how do we work it? Easy answer - work for another company. That happened with the company
I was working for. I would wake up at 4 a.m. AND ON THE WEEKENDS TOO because they needed "coverage" supposedly and I would sit until 9:30 or noon without any work. Sorry, but my rent of $1450/month could not be paid with only $57/day. So I got another job and when I got the equipment and everything, then I quit for the other employer.
Must be a small company. I have never talked to the owner of the company I work for. sm
He wouldn't have time. Why would someone talk directly to the MTSO? Most do not know (or care) about the details just the big picture.
Chasing work from company to company - Have any of you ever watched (sm)

5 year olds learning to play soccer?  The ball is in play and no matter what the coahes say ALL the kids go running for the ball.  Maybe we are like that, masses of us going from company to company in search of work.  This company has a new account BOOM here we go.  Now it is out.  Let's go here. 

Yep, I think it is a big game someone is playing with us.  Not a particularly funny one either. 

P.S. - I am an employee with this company

and they have NO benefits package yet.  I've been told for months that they are working on one.  I also was told you get PTO if you type 1100 per day.  Got news for ya.....it's impossible unless you work a couple weekends a month, which I will NOT do.  I found the job on this website, now when they need MTs they advertise elsewhere.  Shhhhh, guess it's a secret.  I'm making 0.085 cents/line and they are advertising elsewhere for .12 cents per line.  Nice eh? 

I'm hoping they fire me so I can collect unemployment. 

As an employee every company does not

provide your computer, which you have to have to do the job, every company doesn't provide a C-phone or foot pedal, which you have to have to do the job, they don't reimburse your internet, which is most cases you need to do your job.

In my case I had DSL, a land line as required by DSL, but which I rarely used and then I needed ULD once I was hired by KS.  I tried to go through my ISP, but they never could get it to work and I was tired of dealing with India.  I switched from DSL to cable internet and then I got digital phone through my internet provider.  Making the switch from land line to digital phone saves me $10/mo on my phone bill and switching from DSL to cable for six months I'm saving $15/mo on my internet expenses and will only save $5 after that 6 months. 

I don't see that I'm out anything as I came out better, but having an additional expense of $25/mo in order to be able to work at home is hardly a financial burden and I don't feel it is unreasonable.  You can always claim it on taxes.  Keystrokes clearly puts in their ad what equipment you need and if you need a C-phone they also state you will need ULD.   If an MT doesn't want to deal with that then there are other companies. 

If you are an employee of a company that provides
please mention the company so I can apply.  Thanks! 
can you tell us which state or company? Are you an employee or IC? sm
I know that a certain company in NY was investigated a few years back because of treating ICs like employees.

I hope it is not the company I work for as I am finally happy after being miserable for the last 3 years and 50 jobs.
Best company with higest cpl employee status
Great company and they pay employee insurance. nm
Why would you want to work for a company with no QA? Anyways the only company that comes to mind is
I worked for in the past which is Medquist NJ Radiology.
A company is not required to supply anything to an employee. The problem sm
is when ICs are supplied with equipment; they cannot be supplied with anything or they are employees.

Other professions need to have their own equipment, references, etc. This is not just in transcription.
She is definitely an employee. This company in Georgia has 150+ employees. Forty hour
work week is one thing but having them get very upset when you are working 50-60 hours and be nasty when the account is still behind but saying no overtime, no way is a very different thing.  I advised her ask the department to check out this company and out get out of there anyway. 
I have a friend working in a hospital and she is looking for a company from home as an employee.
Would anyone care to recommend a good company?
What is the best company to go to for IC that is a nice company to work for that has work for you
and also is interested if you want to work part time at some point.
Absolutely not! I work for the best MTSO. I am have been so blessed to work for the small company I

I will share this about the MTSO I work for.  I called her late last Wednesday night after Church and told her I was compelled to help out with Hurricaine Katrina in some way and an opportunity arose for a small group from my Church to go to Louisianna this coming week.  Would she be able to cover my work.  She told me no problem without any hesitation and even donated money for the trip. 

And I am sure there are plenty of good companies out there to work for.  To compare us to migrant workers is just not right.

I've been with the company almost 10 years. I know the truth. Hawaii was a company-paid vacation.
They do not offshore. The owner's original company was bought by MQ; started a new company, whic
That's about all I know. I would give them a try. They sounded good!
Great company. I've been recommending this company for a long time.
Like I said - it depends who you work for. I work for a hospital at home - not a company. nm
I used to work for a company who separated the MTs by work type daily. sm
regret ever leaving that company. we had a max of 4 MTs typing a large training hospital with clinics. i was assigned consults and discharges with consults being my priority. another MT had ops and admits, etc. it worked so much better. we were RARELY out of TAT and each of us were trained on other report types for backup in case someone need to take off. not to mention that we were easily able to learn the ESLs because we got them repeatively enough to learn them, set up templates, etc. much, much more productive for us as MTs, for the company as work flow, and i am sure for the dictator because they got someone who knew them and their dictations well enough to be accurate. i don't understand why large MTSOs cannot comprehend how much more beneficial that would be.
I actually left about a year ago and work for another company that's running out of work. Have to
I so wholeheartedly agree with you. Don't work for KS but work for SS - another company bashed
Works GREAT for me and I love SS. I never really care what the negatives are as I have found they are usually people that can't make their lines, don't work the hours they commit to or just overall do not care!
I work for an all-US company and refuse to work for one that offshores. Best of luck to you. nm
I hope my company flies under the radar. This is horrible what happens to one company sm
after another on this board.  The owners must have very thick skin.  First TT, then Amphion, now Keystrokes.  No one is safe.  I hope everyone takes all they read with a grain of salt.  I have met a few of the owners of the some of the bigger services, and they are all very nice, including those that own Webmedx, Keystrokes, Execuscribe, Medware, MDI and Transcend.  I hate to think how they feel when they read things on here, even though they all say they don't read the posts here and advise against it.  I don't know how they don't read them; I look just to make sure that no one mentions mine.
Maybe QA made the decision, not the company, and the company managers are not aware of it. sm
I started with a company that did the same thing. When I went to the manager outside of QA, she fixed it right away. Turns out that the QA manager had made a decision to do that and had not told anyone else.

It does make sense to do that though. Find out if it is a few days or longer and base your decision on that.

Can we ask which company or at least which state they're out of?

Unfortunately, I am going to be looking AGAIN due to offshore.
or maybe it's really a good company. Give me a break. If a company isn't talked about sm
on here, good or bad, it's probably too small to matter and does not offer benefits or anything at all.
I had applied but I decided that I did not want to pursue with them because...
The owner or manager had contacted me about testing further etc.. When I work during the day, I do not answer my phones and return the calls when I take breaks. Well, he was quite cornered and bothered that I was so difficult to get a hold of, which I took it as not at my beck and call attitude. Just in my opinion, I felt that there was possibly a control issue and I was married to a control freak and would never go there again.. FOR ANYONE.. but that was just my personal experience.  
Thanks for the input on Focus!! I will not pursue it. no msg
Work PT for a company and noticed something odd. When I work the day shift I get (sm)

actually fairly good dictators, a couple of toughies, but no more than one would expect.  When I do the late afternoon/early evening shift it is like night and day.  I get some really crummy dictators and tons of problem/miscoded reports.  

They have said that there is no cherry picking able to be done with this program so I just have to wonder if the crappy dictators can't get to the dictate stations until after 4 p.m. or what?

Nuff said, back to work.  Thanks for letting me air it out.

I work for another company...
MQ had no problem with it when they hired me.
NEVER pay a company to work for them.
That is a scam.

There is a difference in renting equipment or putting up a deposit for equipment to be sent to you.

How do you have to pay to work for them?
the company I work for...
pays the same way. As long as you have direct deposit, it really isn't that bad. With my company the pay period ends the 15th and the last day of the month, and checks are either sent out or deposited on the 20th and 5th. The main difference is that you never have a chance for those 2 bonus pay months where you receive 3 paychecks instead of just 2.
I work for this company too and my DD have never been
late.  I did receive my check in the mail today, the day after it was scheduled for DD, and it was mailed on 12/7, the day before DD is scheduled.  A bit of an inconvenience, but a one time issue. 
I think we work for the same company.
I was told it was not a sign on bonus, only for MTs in good standing with the company. The shortages in the paychecks are for the 30% deduction for headers and footers (that we do not type).
If you want to work for a company
than OSi is for you.
We know we work for the best company (sm)

so let's get together and share info!  Email me if you want to be part of a mailing list.  Please indicate your account(s).

I do not want to work for a company
the comapnies who do offshore so I will not waste my time testing.

Would you work for a company
that made you sign an agreement not to mention the name anywhere on the internet, web forums and agreed not to endeavour to form or join a union?
Which company is the best to work for...
Looking for a good company, decent pay and no ESL's.  Is there a company out there that anyone knows of???
I work for a company that does that...sm
I have worked for a company for a couple of years that pays like that (still there). The way they explained it when I started was that if you are an IC, they need to bill and get payment from your accounts (rather than you invoicing the company) and then after that 1st 30-day cycle, your first check is 2 weeks after that, so 6 weeks all together. confused anyone yet?? At first it was difficult waiting, but every 2 weeks after that like clockwork I get paid. The way I look at it is that if I ever leave them I still get paid for a month and a half.
Can you say which state this company is in??
The BEST company to work for???
Want input on the best company to work for out there.
Me, too. We must work for the same company!


What company did you work for?
I will know not to apply if I am looking for a job.
Why would anyone pay to work for a company?

I refuse to rent/buy their equipment to work for them.  That's ridiculous. Good luck getting your deposit back - they usually find some excuse not to return the money to you.

Do you believe this - the company I work for

sent a mailnote to their transcriptionists stating that the office will be closed Thursday (Thanksgiving) and Friday, although there may be some overflow of work.  Any help would be appreciated!  They didn't even say Happy Thanksgiving.  - Talk to the butt!!

I work for that company and sm

she is not likely, as a brand new employee, to get either holiday off.  The newest work the holidays, and that is a fact.  Other, longtime employees, have asked months in advance if they want the days of.  As a new employee, she will not have that option.

And, no, people who transcribe from home are nothing like the rest of the healthcare industry, not in any way.  We are scheduled 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, holidays included.  Some companies pay more for that, and some do not, but it is still expect.  It is not considered sacred, not in any way.  The work has to be covered.  We all have families.  We all work around our family obligations and celebrations.  If you work somewhere that is not like that, please, tell us where.

Which company would you work for? sm....
Transolutions for MDI FL?  Can't make up my mind.
I do not work for this company, but
do you think they overhire?  It seems like there are a lot posts stating that companies run out of work.  I cannot believe as I have my own accounts that these docs are not dictating every day, especially clinic.  Then all of a sudden, bam...  you get bombarded???  That is why pooling is so not attractive?!  I am just making assumptions here, but it does seem really odd.  How can one even count on this income?  Oh well, I'm probably just adding fuel to the fire!  Good luck.
MDI-MD is a better company, IMO, to work for - sm
About 5 months ago, they acquired two hospitals in Maryland that are supereasy docs to transcribe. EVEN THE RADIOLOGY IS SUPER EASY!!!! Very few foreign docs. Check into it. Plenty plenty plenty of work on the account.
Which company do you work for??
Dang, which company do you work for?
