Serving Over 20,000 US Medical Transcriptionists

The post was made on a Sunday night -- no one in the office really to ask then. sm

And it seemed a harmless question.   He/she wasn't really asking a policy question ... just a general question regarding when the payday is.  Most companies that I have worked for, if the payday is over a weekend, they pay on Friday.  Unfortunately, that is not the case here, but at least they are upfront about it, and it says so in the paperwork somewhere.

I work 2nd shift, and I ran out last night -- never has happened on a Sunday. nm

yes, you have a certain amount to turn in by Sunday night at midnight, but you can try and type it
all that Friday.
where did Amphion post from last night go?
I just called the office and was told there has been no change made in their QA policy.

Mine does not post until 11pm the night of payroll. It is the bank. sm
I have talked to others and some post the night before, some by morning, some by noon. Mine is the worst I have heard of, but it is the way everything posts with my bank. It is one of the largest banks in the world too!
You almost made it through the post..
Okay, you almost made it through the post and you were being positive and encouraging until you got to the part about there are a lot of people who think they can transcribe and cannot...

Just because someone had a bad experience with your company does not mean they are a substandard transcriptionist. Their pay is low for the industry and the incentive plan makes no sense. I left because I don't believe in what is happening in Trinidad. I was always able to transcribe enough lines and always had a 99%+ QA score.
Your post just made my day! n/msg
Above post was made by me, not QTme, sorry.
I think this is the 3rd post you've made sm
about this.  If you only had 8 days into this job, just let it go and move on.  You sound hysterical.
Your post made me laugh, then cry.
Shift differential does not exist at Acusis. Weekend differentials were calibrated in the same way wages were. In order to get a weekend differential, you have to work and achieve your line count on both Saturday and Sunday...so if you've got a Sunday thru Thursday schedule, you're out of luck. Tuesday thru Saturday? Screw you. Plus, with a lot of 'files not available' (no jobs), at least the last Saturday of every pay period has everybody on line trying to squeeze out a few lines...which means that Saturday and Sunday you're not going to get your line count, which means even if you threw family life out the window and chained yourself to your desk, you're still not going to get the weekend differential. If you ever decide to 'share the wealth' and drop your company name, please feel free to let me know. 25+ years of transcription has got to be worth better treatment that I'm getting now.
The regular local post office
Do you live in a small town? (Not sure if thatshould really matter). I live in a medium size town near a semi-large city in NY. The reason I ask is if I mail something to my relatives out of state or even if they send me something in never takes more than 2 days, that's why I thought 10 days sounded excessive. Are you sure they're mailing the pay checks when they say they are?
A post was made asking for opinions. I replied. sm

Part of the reason I replied was because I did go to management, several times in fact, and either there were no replies whatsoever or the replies were in disagreement with others in management, leaving me wondering which one was correct, or they were replies to simply pacify with no intention of correcting.  I'm not trying to flame the company. If my experience seems like a flame, it is because there is a problem and exposing it is like exposing dirty laundry, I guess.  It isn't meant to dissuade anyone or persuade any else for that matter.  It is simply MY experience.  Like I said before, I am not a disgruntled employee.  I am merely experiencing some things in the company that differ from what others are going through and I am simply expressing my experiences on this forum because of what I stated before about intimidation coming from management on the internal forum. 

You are absolutely right that there are many, many employees of Transcend that are extremely happy.  I'm not among the ones who have flamed anyone for posting postive experiences. I have/had been one of those happy employees for years.  There are also many that have been so fed up they have quit. There are also current employees who are in my situation as well, but are afraid to talk about it.  At this point in time, I fall in the middle grouping.  I'm not saying it's a bad company to work for.  Again, I am merely expressing my experience, and has been said many, many times before, I'm quite confident that people on this board have the ability to know what is best for them in a company and aren't going to let the posting of a few happy cheerleaders or a few disgruntled ex-employees be the basis for the decision what company to choose or not to choose. 

All I am saying is that if you are the poster who feels that he/she can work whenever simply because it is inconvenient to work the shift you had committed to, please don't assume that I hadn't talked to management about MY issues and try to point the finger and make accusations about MY motives.  This board is about the pros and the cons.  Unfortunately for me, my circumstance falls in the latter grouping and I shouldn't be lumped into a group of people flaming or bashing and told it is unfair for me to speak about my experience when I have tried all other internal avenues to no avail.  If my experience seems like flaming the company, there would be no flame if there was no ember to fan, so I should have that accusation pointed at me simply because I discuss it?? That is what's not fair, and since I did say I didn't want to argue, I'm not going to keep the discussion going with banter that gets heated or flamed to the point the whole string gets deleted.  Thanks for your input and have a nice day.


The type of post made by this person

The type of job ad post made by this person is not condoned by MTStars.  Due to the unprofessional content of the job ad, the post has been removed, the posters email has been deleted, the post itself has been removed, and the posters IP has been banned.

I can't stress enough how degrading it is for any MTSO to post foul language in a job ad post along with making references that people should know what the **** they are doing.  Our industry has been demoralized enough without our own MTSOs posting in this manner. 

MTStars apologizes to posters for this MTSOs poor judgment in posting.

AMEN!!! The OP is DEFINITELY a post made by someone in management at SPI!
No SPI employee would ever say those things about that crappy company! They treat MTs like second-class citizens and rip them off to no end! I also worked for Cymed for about 2 years before SPI bought them out. A few months after the buyout was announced, I got out of there as fast as I could. The original poster is obviously either management or just an employee who needs a good, HARD kick in the noggin!
Hey, QA, I made another mistake .. pull my post .. LOL
Pardon the html in my post, as I tried to enter smileys ... lol ... there was no way to proofread ~ and I didn't anyway, because it's time for me to get ready for work. I also said not being turned down ~ should have been no not .. LOL .. toodles ~ I'm outta here and not participating anymore. ;o)
Kind of hard to blame the post office when
the company hasn't even mailed it!
Geesh..It's been a long day. I don't think I made any sense on that post.
Bottom line is, best pay rate out there, most of the time enough work and good benefits. They have a lot of happy employees.
Problem resolved. Was a post office issue apparently. nm
I wouldn't waste my time calling the Post Office
Breitner is dishonest when it comes to their check mailing and check amounts. Same thing happened to me when I worked there and I went through the steps tracking it down.  They ended up cutting me another check (weeks later) - ITS ALL A STALL TACTIC.  Find employment elsewhere.  This will continue to happen until you leave the company.  Good Luck.
Today is Columbus day, and state offices and post office
is closed. Perhaps some docs took a long weekend. Maybe that is why on this particular Monday the work is trickling in. I am just getting some work now. So maybe it will come in later. Just an idea, about it being a holiday.
Please everyone, read the post made by Tammy Johson above. It explains everything.
What a hateful post. Hope your rant made you feel better. nm
patients care....tell post office, tellers, cashier, neighbor,
This is totally off topic, but your post made me smile with the reference to Wang sm

word processors.  I remember when we got them at the hospital, I was all happy while some of the older ladies were balking at it, but the thing that sticks in my mind was a comedian at the time who did some kind of joke about, Who let some company call themselves Wang? 

Anyway, it was funny at the time and this brought back a memory . I'm sorry for your situation.  I am 50 too, and although I do not live in a rural area, in fact just recently moved to the Denver area, I feel rather trapped.  I have done this since I was a junior in high school, and I really do not have any other marketable job skills.  When I see posts about wages being cut and work drying up, I panic inside and wonder what the future will hold for me.  Even if I had the money to go back to school, by the time I would graduate, I'd be an old lady anyway and probably not the best candidate for hire. 

Good luck to you. 

Sent it Sunday (by fax) then (sm)
immediately got e-mail asking to fill out questionnaire, did that on Sunday too..then haven't heard, am I just not patient enough? Thanks! I really want to talk with them, but don't want to bug them either. Thanks for the info!
She was my coordinator....She was there as of Sunday...

thanking us all for the hard work with TAT! I had my last day thank goodness, my head was spinning from the revolving door of ACs, TLs, etc!

It is Sunday, my brain's day off.
Sunday and Monday

I'm not on the schedule with any of them on Sunday, Monday I only work for one of them. I took the third job because it's a specialty I like and want to do more of. I'm trying to decide which direction to go in  - certainly don't want to work this much indefinitely.

I don't care if it is 3 am Sunday morning, get up and

Okay, if i tested with a company Sunday and..
I have not heard anything as of yet, am I safe to assume that they don't want me on their team?   This is a company that runs ads just about every week.  However, I have not seen an ad this week yet. 
VR - next month starts Sunday
VR is a reality beginning Sunday. It is no longer a rumor.
Since yesterday was Sunday, DD would have gone through this morning
If payday falls on a weekend or a holiday, then direct deposit will go through the next business day. Mine was in my bank account last night around midnight.
I work both Saturday and Sunday...
every single weekend.  I have for many years.  I have 1 child at home.  How do I do it?  I just do it.  I do a lot of things in life that aren't easy, but I get by.  I knew when I became an MT that I was entering the medical field, which does, contrary to what some people may believe, operate on a 24/7/365 schedule in most instances.  People do get sick/injured on weekends.   If you aren't satisfied with working weekends, your best bet is to find clinic work.  Then, your only complaint may be the pay, which is generally lower than acute care because the work is considered easier.  Oh, well, I guess you can't win.
Current payperiod ends this Sunday 8/26...sm
Payday is 9/3 (but believe that is the holiday so not sure how that works). Pay is every other week on Mondays, so the following PP will be paid on 9/17. PPs run Mon-Sun. HTH
I received the test files Sunday
The dictator is extremely fast and mumbles. Not worth it in my opinion. I emailed her back and politely declined after listening to the files.
under new hire plan, Saturday/Sunday all day, 1cent more
The main office was in Bolingbrook but they built an office in Yorkville last fall. SM
I think that the owners live in Yorkville, so it was built close to their house. Nice office, just pretty far out.
Just curious, is the MQ Nashville office the old Lanier office? nm
I don't work in the office and never claimed to. I am just saying that since the new office open
October with everyone of the admin staff in one place, these problems do not occur any more.
Well, I know that MTs from my office have quite MQ and they dont post on here but I dont know how
many. I think MTs with MQ may be getting second jobs and just working for 2 different places at the same time which is probably the smart thing to do anymore because MQ will continue with this short TAT and as it spreads throughout other  offices people will continually be running out of work especially after going on DQS.
Can't get paid in the office if you don't work in the office.
JLG has MT's working at home, not in the office, not to mention working out of state.  The mail is the only way to get paid since they have temporarily suspended direct deposit.  The only ones getting paid on time are the ones that do work in the office, like the management and people answering the phone. 
Closed FW office, Indianapolis office too. nm
u made 300 a week? That's more than I made there.
But no work, no pay. Nice ppl, they really are, some of the nicest in the business. Just can't communicate to save their lives and the recruiters are lying dogs.

I'd say if you're looking for part-time work, as in less than 20 hrs a week's worth of work, then this place is for you. Use them as ur backup. Because guaranteed that's all they're using you for.

day and night
Overall transform is good. I'd say stay away from accounts with Lisa P as manager. She is moody and flies off a lot. Or should I just say unpredictable.

Transform is good as they are pretty flexible on hours and the platform is pretty decent to work on.
Try a night out and look for a man.

and you might make some cashews along with those peanuts.  They are also delicious covered in chocolate, but that may require you get a few more lines in. 

Hey, don't be bitter, reconsider!  Some of us have learned a lot of from this board. 

Chillax!  Life is waaaaay too short!  

P/S:  Bubble baths and a glass of wine can also cure this kind of demeanor....  Try it some time.  You might like it.... 

Nothing since last night in the ER.
Must be no one has gone to the ER because that is what my account is.
Its only you - last night I
I hate to have to start looking for another job, but things just keep getting a little worse all the time on my accounts.
more $ for night and weekends
0.005 per line from 6 pm to 11 pm. from 11 pm to 6 am 0.01 per line. How the heck can we keep track of this stuff? More time will be spent calculating the time sheet than earning it!!
Thank you very much! :) Have a great night. NM
I have been waiting all night for - sm
someone to say that. I feel better already!
