Chronicle Transcripts
I've worked for Chronicle Trasncripts for over 5 years and love every aspect of my job. I find the platform easy to use and in fact it is being upgraded as we speak.

The support offered by Chronicle is excellent, in my opinion. You get feedback from their QC Dept and they have a mentoring program for additional support.

Plenty of work, good pay, good benefits.
Chronicle Transcripts!!

Chronicle gets my vote!

Would anyone who works for them be kind enough to e-mail me for some private questions I have.  Thanks so much :)

Hello fellow MTs!  Anyone care to share any info on this company?



Chronicle Transcripts

They're certainly a nice group, but may be a little manipulative as well.  Not unlike a lot of companies, they seem to expect that the company's needs come first and your life comes second.  Don't be shocked when they call you at times when you are not scheduled.  The QA can be a little condescending, or at least seems that way in email.  The platform stinks (APEX); really difficult to get a decent line count, plus it had the habit of breaking down at least once daily, often in the middle of a report.  If you have nothing else to do with your time and you don't really need a lot of money, and you do transcription because you just really LOVE it and would rather transcribe than do just about anything else, including sleep, then they are very pleasant to work for; however, if you want to work your set schedule and not be bothered on off hours, this company may not be a good fit for you.

I am scheduled for a telephone interview with Chronicle Transcripts next week.  Do they require you to have any special equipment outside of Windows XP, 512 mb, USB port footpedal, sound card to hear the audio files?  I know most companies do not require anything other as stated above, but I thought I may have read somewhere they required something in addition.


Just wanted to know if I have everything I needed, if they offer me a job.

Chronicle Transcripts, any info? sm
I have 3 job offers right now, one of which is Chronicle. Can anyone offer any insight about working for them? What benefits do they offer? Are they easy to work with? What were your complaints? Was there steady work? Do they overwork you?

Chronicle Transcripts - anyone have any info
about them.  I passed their prequalification test (a 2-year-old could have) and am now proceeding to  THE ONLINE TRANSCRIPTION TEST! Wish I knew what they paid.  Probably 3 cpl with a review in 3 years if I have a 105% accuracy. 
Any info on Chronicle Transcripts??
Chronicle Transcripts - Anyone Happy?

I've taken a position with CTI, but I'm kind of worried after reading all the negative posts about the horrible Apex platform.

Is there anyone who works for them who is satisfied?


Chronicle Transcripts and Transform, Inc

Most info I found on these two companies is rather old...Any new info?  The good, bad, and ugly please.  Trying to make an informed decision and find my home :)  TIA

Chronicle Transcripts (CA) and Precyse. Does

anyone have any information to share on either of these two companies?  They are both advertising for current openings.  I'm currently an IC and wondering if there really is a benefit to being employee status?  

Any information on platform, management, QA, etc. would be appreciated.  Easy/hard to meet production quotas?  Pay on time?  I don't need health benefits.

Any information is appreciated. 

Interesting. Chronicle Transcripts in

California uses the same platform the other posters here mention (APEX).  I stayed for 2 months and finally called it a day.  It was horrible, always breaking down, slow, the dictionary isn't even a standard medical dictionary.  Are Chronicle and Transolutions the same company or related does anyone know?

Is it Chronicle Transcripts by chance?
Any current Chronicle Transcripts MT's?

I left soon after starting with them a while ago because they didn't have enough work.  They are advertising again saying lots of work available.  I had to buy Word 2003 the first time only to find out it wasn't enough work to keep busy.  Have things changed?  Do they have enough work for everyone?  Is the same rude QA woman still there?  Same platform (uses Word 2003)?  Any info would be appreciated. 


Has anyone tested at Chronicle Transcripts


Has anyone started at Chronicle Transcripts
I left Chronicle Transcripts a little over a
the issues I had (disorganization, a very negative QA experience, horrible platform, bad dictators) still exist which means it wasn't 100% my fault it didn't work out.  I often wondered what happen with them and now I see.  Some things never change.  I should add they didn't have a recruiter back then or at least I don't think they did.   
Chronicle Transcripts. Just started and
I absolutely love it.  QA is very helpful and it's a nice change to work with QA who works along with me instead of against as I've had in other companies.  The office has been very helpful while I adjust to the new job.  I almost didn't go with this company based on prior posts here but I'm glad I did.  I'm very happy with this company.
Starting with Chronicle Transcripts. Any
advice?  I really weighed the decision against posts I read here and my gut feeling after interviewing.  I'm hoping I made a good decision.  Has anyone started there recently and find it is a good fit for them?
Chronicle Transcripts? Any current
archives and saw those posts.  Any current opinions?  Thanks in advance.

transcripts starts their MTs at paywise?  TIA
Newbie, I have worked for Chronicle Transcripts for 5 years and think you should look no further. I have found them a great company to work for, with good benefits. As for being overworked versus steady work, the work is steady; I have hardly ever been without work. As with any company, you would of course be expected to diligently work your shift, but I do not consider that being overworked, I consider that being responsible. So if you're responsible, love being an MT, and are looking for a great company to grow with, Chronicle would definitely be the place!
Sounds like a disgruntled one to me. I've worked for Chronicle for over 7 years and have never had any problems with anyone who works there. They don't play games, pay well, and always have work. They do expect you to produce quality work and be dependable.


I just started working for Chronicle about 2 weeks ago as an IC.  Not sure if I can help much, but please feel free to ask questions..  I searched very long and very hard and kept spreadsheets and compared and on and on.  I received at least 5 offers and went with Chronicle.  Give my a holler if you are still looking.


Chronicle was okay


I worked for them about 2 weeks. I hated the platform and could not make any $$ so I quit. I could type and type and only make about 30 lines per report.
working for them for a few months and very happy with them. I get good line counts and they pay right on time!!
Chronicle - NO
Worked for them twice.  I quit last month.  The Platform STINKS!  They just aren't MT friendly.  I don't like or recommend them.
