Loyalty has nothing to do with it until you find the company for you. Be loyal to THAT company.

I do believe your loyalty is displaced. No MTSO or national are loyal to MTs
even though they claim to be. Loyalty is earned just like respect. This is a business just like any other business. If one company cuts pay, takes away health insurance, etc, why should any person or MT be loyal to that company? If promises are made and then broken or lies are told, why should any MT be loyal to that MTSO or company?

On the other hand, yes, if the MTSO or national and their people take care of the MT and provide her/him continuous work flow, as promised, pay on time, and work together with an honest and respectful relationship, then, yes loyalty should be mutual and reciprocating.

For you to just come on here and claim MTs should be loyal to company is very improper of you!

Ok, those are my cents worth! Have a good night!
I completely concur. Find a good one, or move on, quickly. No loyalty involved. The don't sm
have any to the MTS.  NONE of them.
Find another company
I agree with these posters. I am there NOW and will not be soon. They do NOT provide equipment, you have to buy your own pedal, you get these bitchy E-mails, being talken down to REGULARLY. Not only is their management a piece of crap, but their tech support sucks..if you happen to work when there is no tech coverage, too bad for you, you have to wait until they come in the morning. PLUS I am using my own computer. Arrogant QA people, ignorant "managers"...and it all crashes down on the poor MT's head who is just trying, FIGHTING to make their lines. Please, please do yourself a favor and apply elsewhere.
If you find a company that does that let me know, please. nm
You will not find a better company
The dictators, etc., is up to the MT.  Can you do it?  TT is a great company.
Find a different company. This one will not get better.
No one answers any questions, you only hear something if you make a mistake. The platform for work is really nasty, more editing demographic work than typing, and the editing platform is the worst of the worst. Someone wrote that their pay is fair and it is, if you use fair in the context of poor, fair, good, and excellent, but it definitely is not fair in regards to quality or experience. During my interviews, I find many companies are offering much higher rates, especially with VR, even MQ with their bad reputation. In order to survive you have to work a 12 hour window because there is no work much of the time.
Find another company!
Transcend sure sounds like they are getting worse.  They have a ton of positions open but the VR platform stinks so bad that people are leaving rather than working at such a reduced wage.  No communication is the fault of the TL and ROMs which are the worst in the industry as someone said on here a couple of weeks ago and I found in my 3 years there that they are the rudest things and talk down to you and insult you more than help you. Now, there are a few great ones but from reading this I think the bad ones have infected the whole lot of them.  There are better VR platforms out there and companies with straight typing that are not rude and treat you like crap, go girl, go! 
I don't have all day to try to find a company
You won't find anything like that with a company. Hospital sm

benefits are much different, but there aren't many of those jobs left.  They are tumbling to the nationals increasingly.

Wmx has 6 paid holidays for all full time employees.  Graduated rate of PTO, 5 days first year, 10 days for the next 5.  You won't find any company that offers any benefits at all to part time people, as far as I know.  The insurance cost at Wmx are cheaper than, and the coverage far superior to, any other companies I have seen. 

Where did you find that kind of company?
Please do tell, need to move on myself.
I'm trying to find out a company name. It is a small,

I think just an owner and IT person, company in Wyoming, I believe.   I can't remember the name of the company.  They offered me a position and I turned them down, but I need to make a list of all the companies I've turned down as many of them continue to contact me and I want to be able to say no right away instead of going through the interview again because I forgot.   I know there is a company in Cody, WY, but I don't think that is them.  They were extremely disorganized. 

Anyone have a clue who is may be?  I know I haven't given much info to work with. 

Do you find it a very disorganized company?
I already tried to find stuff about this company
but nothing comes up when i type the company name in the search box.
Find a company with work already

darn!  There's a suggestion...  There are plenty that advertise...  Most MTs on this board swear they can transcribe anything and can do so many lines a day, so look around that's what you do.

There's no such thing as job hoppin' if the compay doesn't have enough work for you.  Find another company that does.  Take control of your life and stop letting people walk all over you. 

The statement made by the other poster is most certainly a fact...  these companies take advantage because they have MTs who take their crap day in and day out...  move on already!

Has anyone used a recruiting company to find a job?
If so, how did that go? I need a new MT job (been out of it for about a year) and am having little luck finding anything reputable. I have over 5 years experience and seem to be coming to a lot of dead ends. I am getting seriously frustrated!
great. well i'd like to find another company.
i've lost my main account, on a seriously crappy account with a supervisor who has a large stick up her butt. I can't make any money here and I'm about ready to just quit and do something else.
If you find a company to cross-train in
can you please post the name of the company. I have been wanting to get into radiology. I probably know more than I think I do. However, radiology and medical records transcription were done in separate parts of the hospital, so never got to practice what I learned.

Yes, if I ever find a company who will do it I will certainly share the info. :)
Good luck!. When you find the company, let us know. sm
I'm in the same boat. 
TransTech is a great company. I don't find that they have any more ESL's than any other
company. The pay is good (not great, not bad), the benefits are affordable. For me, the best thing is that I feel I am treated with respect. They are great people who care about us. Overall, this is the best jobs I have had in years. I would highly recommend them.
Why not? If your current company is out of work, you need to find another, and another and another,
you can make a decent weekly income. I've been there and done that, sometimes 5 companies at once, until I finally landed a decent position with consistent workflow.

How do you pay your bills making less than $500 a week?
What company just bought out Focus? I can't find it now. Thx. nm
If you're so paranoid find another company
you type a character and leave the rest of us at Transtech alone. Thank you.
Can't seem to find any information on MD-IT. Does anyone have any experience with this company?
What is the name of the company?? StatlQ? I can't find it by googling (sm)
Can you give some more info, is there a website?  TIA.
Good company, for sure. Find one where you're SM
consistently safe from overhiring--and then come back and give all the rest of us the name. In the meantime, for me at Webmedx most days have plenty of work, although some days require adjusting my schedule during the day to the work flow.

You know, evolving electronic capabilities and patient needs have now led hospitals--our employers' clients--to expect the very quick turnaround needed. Years past have taught home MTs we can work when it suits us. Is it any wonder that MTSOs are currently doing their best to deal with these realities by overhiring when needed? Webmedx is trying to stabilize this situation to everyone's benefit--economic at least for us--by pushing its MTs to meet our commitment of hours per week while still allowing some flexibility.

I'm MsIndigo and I approved this ad. :) Best wishes whereever you land.

Anyone find Oracle to be a good company?
I was just referred to Oracle Transcription Services.  Is this a good place to consider switching to as an IC, as this is all they hire.   The flexible schedule of an IC definitely appeals to me.
I have been working in-house at a hospital and would like to go home to work, but I am having a hard time finding a company out there that offers decent insurance benefits and PTO.. Any ideas are appreciated..
Trying to find company(ies) using the BayScribe transcription platform?

You'll be hard pressed to find a company
that pays hourly and allows you to work at home, that just isn't the way the business works.   I'm not saying that those type of positions don't exist, just that they are extremely rare.  Now if you worked on-site that is a different story. 
I've been trying to find a company with steady work
I think we must work for the same company. I find it always interesting how they say how great
the workload looks and people are really working hard when the fact is they have overhired and that is why there is no work. Must be DSG right. They are hiring right now.  Cant imagine what they are hiring for.  Hopefully not the acounts that are already out of work all the time. I wonder what kind of turnover rate they have there.
I think you would be doing good to find a reputable company, much less by putting qualifiers
Do tell. I find it interesting in what some people like and dislike in a company. Could you share
more about your experience...
In the Job Bank, company from Phillipines ..CYPHERSCRIBE INC. trying to find new clients.
What part of MT jobseeker's don't they get. They need to solicit work on another board.  Why would we want to offshore to them.
If getting paid regularly for your hard work is important to you, find another company. nm
I find this post funny. If a company advertises constantly, posters question if they are losing peo
3 weeks, since 5/24, there are posts that question if they are growing. Who cares if a company is growing or not as long as they have enough work for their MTs. I started PT with KS two weeks ago and will be going FT 7/10 after my long-awaited and much-needed vacation. They have treated me very well and have plenty of work if the account I work on is any indication. I also came to them on the recommendation of several MT friends who work there, all of whom are very happy and have been for a while.

If you want to work for a particular company, your best bet is to contact them. I have read in several publications that more jobs are filled before advertising than after the fact.

Give them a call, especially if you like/love radiology!
Suggest you find a 2nd company for backup. The backup accounts
are dried up, too, and you can ask for work daily and still never get any.  Once u get stuck on an account you are there til u die unless u happen to be management's favorite.  u never hear about any new accounts opening up, new platforms,  Be prepared to read the intermet message boards to find out what is going on, that is how I found out they had Beyond Txt and ExText, or had any work available, (supposedly) since they keep advertising for help, but I still do not have enough work to keep busy.   Liz wrote this big long message on here a few weeks ago, but nothing changed, nothing happened.  It is same as always, hot air to try to calm people down.  the
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.
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.
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.
Ask insider if her company is in position to take on MTs from other company who are familiar
Let me know if you pursue this company. I would like to work for a MN company as an employee?
Let me know! Thanks!
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. 

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.
Love this company - want to retire with this company...sm
Been with them for nearly 2 years now and absolutely love them. I make my living with them - I don't do this for fun money. I think the dictators are pretty decent - you will always have your good and bad ones. You just have to get used to them. I love the account I am on - been with the same one since I started. They are a VERY fair company to work for.
They are not a Fortune 500 company. They are a past INC 500 company. There is a
HUGE difference.

Just FYI ... the article was in the Rochester Business News. It notes that the person charged with everything was the owner's husband, not Linda herself. It was something that was done at the company that he worked for, not Execuscribe. If their biggest client is going to fill-in reports, I am sure they will bounce back and get something else. I doubt they do not know that it is happening. Any MTSO worth her/his salt keeps an ear to the ground AND has enough contact with their accounts to be up-to-date on changes about to happen, good and bad.

Perhaps you should not be so smug and instead focus your energies on figuring out WHY your customers were able to be taken from you. I hardly doubt that a good business person could be an ex-MTSO because of another service. There is too much work out there.
