Any new info about Northeast? Pay? Platform? QA?
Archives are showing no new info since about 2006, was wondering how things were now.   How is the platform?  From archived info I see pay was 7-8 cpl for 70 character line, which I'm not thrilled about but I love Psych so tough decision for me personally.  Any info on QA would be great if anyone knows.  TIA!!

Wonder why Northeast Transcription

Northeast Transcription
Anybody work for this company that could provide some info on them?
Northeast Transcription
I would highly recommend this company. I went through their testing process and interview process and was excited to be starting with them. However, they don't have the proper credentials to do business in my state. So instead of just wishing me on my merry way, they have gone above and beyond the call and have passed on my test scores and information to another company they are familiar with. A company that has wonderful staff like Shannon and Terry would be awesome to work for!
Northeast Transcription
Does anyone know anything about Northeast Transcription.  Is their work straight transcription of ASR. Anyone know what platform they use and anything about pay?
Northeast Transcription Inc.
Wondering if anyone could give more information about them. Not a lot on here about them. I just had an interview, and I think I like them, but would like real world experience from people working for them. How is the platform, the expander, are they flexible, easy to get the 1100 lines in an 8 hour day, etc.? Any help either here or to my email would be GREAT!

Opti-Script versus Northeast Transcription Inc.
I have interviewed with each place, and have some likes and dislikes about each. Does anybody out there work for either, or know about either that would help me make a decision? I am leaving Spheris and am concerned about jumping from the frying pan into the fire, so anyone out there that knows anything I would certainly appreciate your 2 cents or more!

Thank you all so much for this board, it has helped me a LOT over the very confusing and frustrating few weeks!

Any personal experiences with Northeast Transcription; good, bad or ugly?nm
Northeast Transcription says that FT is 32 hrs/1000 lpd, but 70-char.lines with all spaces and
That is a BIG problem at TransTech is leads assigning work, rather than letting the work flow
This TT MT just admitted to that fact.  It has been very obvious, as so easy to tell how work comes into our que and then gets pulled out as fast as it came in and replaced with YUKKY dictators.   VERY frustrating to us other TT MT's who take the JUNK that is NOT assigned to other MT's, such as this poster. 
They have to be flexibility because of the erratic work flow. No sense in a schedule if no work..
I am not sure that the work flow is low. sm
I think they have overhired again. At any rate, three and my friends and I are moving on. I haved stayed too long as it is. With no bennies and no DD and no employee status (oh, I know, SOME people get all that, but some people don't), and no work, there is no reason to stay!
Work flow
How's the work now? They have been running out for weeks.
work flow
So far I have not seen a reduction in work flow. It's been pretty nice. It does get low now and then, but nothing out of the ordinary.
How is the flow of work?
 Is it pretty steady or is there a lot of down time, specifically the escription accounts.
work flow
I have just been with TT a month or two.  When I hired on, they told me the hours they had more work, so I work those hours.  At one point, the doctors were slamming them with dictation after 3:00 PM.  Of course, I started earlier than that, but still had plenty of work.  When the docs are dictating is when we have work.  That's true at the local hospital where I work as well as anyplace else.  Like it or not, a Transcriptionist has to work when the doctors dictate.  If you want to work day shift and 5 days, clinic work is good, but the reports are short.
MDI work flow
Let me weight. I have been with MDI about a year. Many positives. They leave you alone to do the work but the feedback is here if you need or want it. I never had a problem with workflow until this summer. Now work is constantly out or low particualry in the daytime. For a single parent this is a hardship because I need to get my hours in while kids are in school or daycamp in summertime. It's extremely difficult for me to be working in the evenings when children are at home. My paycheck as taken a hit or I am going on to work in the evenings and struggling and not supervising my kids because I have to work. The thing irks me is I have Op experience, I made this known when I was hired that not only do I have this experience But I also prefer Ops. I can see clearly every day they are begging for people to jump on do the Op notes. I have asked mutiple times (at least 4) to give me this worktype as I am not set up for it and that I would be happy to help with the backlog, pariculary because my clinic and other acute care work was dry. No response over and over. It's as if they are picking favorites to do this particular type of work and not allowing other peolple with the experience a shot at work that seems plentiful. It's very frustrating. I am never given an explanation as to why I cannot do this work type even though I have the experience. On only occasiona management said they would discuss it. So I do believe there is some favortism as to which employees get what type of work. I do not like this particulary when I am struggling to make a line count on the work types they will allow me to work on.

To be fair for the most part aside from the work type issue and slow work this summer my experience with MDI has been positive. I never ran out of work until this summer. They do not nitpick your work and harass you with contast emails and phone calls as some companies do. The people are generally nice and flexible.

However, I have started looking for other employment and I also need benefits, which MDI does not provide.
How is your work flow going? sm

I was just wondering how everyone was doing with respect to the amount of work you are getting.  Is it slow?  Are you inundated with a lot of reports?

I have never seen it this slow where I work.  I am worried, unhappy, scared, etc.  I called my MTSO and asked and was rudely told that it's because of the holiday and that I should know better.  I did not start working there yesterday.  I have been with this company as an IC since 2006, and even during the previous major holidays such as Xmas and Thanksgiving, it was never this bad.  I was lucky to have gotten in 1000 lines this entire week!  What's more is that The Holiday which was Memorial Day just passed; and Memorial Day is NOT a major holiday! 

I am posting to just get a feel of what others might be experiencing.

at least they have steady flow of work -
No...I'm not one that lets work flow through.

I do take the time to correct my reports and research terms, physicans' names and addresses, correct facility names, etc.  That is exactly WHY I take offense at your post.  It is getting harder and harder to maintain quality while still being able to do this job at 99% accuracy along with all the additional nonpaid responsibilities some of these MTSOs require without having additional stress added to it with punitive compensation policies. 

I'm most definitely NOT advocating that MTs should hurry through their work, I'm taking the side of the MTs that have enough stress as it is without having more garbage piled on top of our backs.  I'm appalled at the fact that you have such a high and mighty attitude against your fellow workers at the same time bragging about your situation, yet admitting that you're scared you may end up in the same situation.  Hey...at least your honest about not having qualms sticking the knife in your colleagues' backs.  Like you say...it would be stoopid for you to give up the name of where you work to help others out because then you would end up in the same boat.  Things are a lot different than they were in the 70s and 80s, but your attitude shows that you could care less about what your colleagues are going through NOW because you're done with it and set to retire.

Encompass- How are the accounts and work flow? Do you have a lot of work?
I need to keep busy. I cant sit here every day hoping for work so I'm looking elsewhere.
