Possibly a penny a line? I've never had anyone ask if I had my CMT on an interview. nm
Possibly a new Indian company. They've never been mentioned here before. nm
well I've read all your posts and responses and
no one has been ugly or attacked you at all

I just took a PT IC position with Paladin Retrieval and so far so good.  I believe they are still looking for acute care folks.  Pay is good too.
Now, how can you possibly know that? (sm)
Seems to me 9 months is more than enough time to meet requirements.  Sounds fishy to me.  There's probably more to it than OP is saying.
How can you possibly say that? They are NOT going to be the next
to go. That client in NV is extremely pleased with TT and isn't going anywhere. I have been with TT for almost 5 years now and they have lost a total of 2 clients in that time. Gimme a freakin' break!
is that possibly why...
it takes a long time for that recruiter to get back with you, if she/he does?
Very possibly

Nothing is 100% sure of course.  But some transcription companies are already doing this, charging more and offering quality and doing very well, especially in specialty fields.  They don't advertise as much because they have lower turn over but we know who they are.

I will bet that because of increasing lawsuits and liability, hospitals are going to be a lot more careful about what becomes part of a patient's medical record.  And who has access to it.  As the economy gets worse, the big companies are going to cut corners more and more trying to squeeze more money out the business.  They probably won't even want to be bothered when their profits go down and cut into their big CEO paychecks.  First there was a glut of nurses because the hospitals didn't want to pay them.  Now there is a shortage and they are going nuts trying to recruit them.  There are cycles in business.

I don't want to become a mllionaire.  Just make a decent living for myself and some other transcriptionist.  As I said, some companies are already doing this. 

She can try RC Transcription. They have an internship. The downside is it's free. As in they do not get paid at all. But after completing the internship, they often, if they do well, get hired. Focus also has an internship. Other than that, I'm not sure of any companies that do it that way. You may want to consider giving her a letter of recommendation with the info that you are mentoring her as she works, maybe be able to get her foot in a door with a company that occasionally will take on a new MT? Good luck to her!
Could it possibly be the -
very first one, at the top of the list?
Possibly - but for whom? But even
if we lowly MTs were even offered these perks, who among use could actually afford a hybrid, or even a used jalopy, at this point??
No SE but possibly IC
In our call he said Transcend doesn't have a statutory employee status.  They do have IC status which will be addressed on an individual basis.  It's obvious they prefer folks to choose employee status but IC may be available.  I've seen their ads for ICs and they require you to have a federal employer identification number.  ICs also have to pay self-employment tax, which amounts to an additional 7.5% to cover the SS/Medicare match that the employer pays for SEs.
I don't know where they could possibly fit
they should change their name to 'TRANS-CRAP'.
possibly MedQuist
Maybe MedQuist? I was recently hired as a newbie. As a newbie, they want a set 40-hour schedule, but I was told that can change down the line. I'm statutory, BTW.
What about my message could possibly have come across like that?
All I did was comment on some of the rude replies to legitimate posts and ask for input on other positive MT sites.

Why the chip on your shoulder?

Possibly DTS in Tennessee. nm
Possibly Milner ? .... nm
How can you possibly say too many MTs look for the perfect job? sm
It is those who settle for substantially less that drives the field down.  And MOST cmopanies pay for headers and footers ... anything I have to research and provide should be paid for .. to think less means you have been brainwashed.
I don't know anything about Transend, but they can't possibly
me worse than SoftScript.  If you read back through old posts there are lots of posts about both of them. 
I believe it is at least 90%, possibly as high as 98%...nm
Did you consider that possibly they do not have anything that fits what you want or that sm
you might not fit what they want for openings they have right now?

Don't take it personally but if you are really upset about it and want to find out what the reason was, ask them. The worst they can do is not tell you, but they might give you insight into something that you are projecting or missing, something that you can correct.
What training can they possibly have
that cannot be done online?

The company should invest in modern technology, otherwise it is going 'under, 'soon!'

And if you have to go, I hope the company pays for EVERYTHING.

They couldn't possibly know...sm
I plan to continue to use mine as I always have. I am just really going to have to be extra careful! I've never sent any Expander faux pas through, but my luck, it will happen now!

I agree that everyone should be on their toes. It would be quite unfair to put any unnecessary work on QA expecting them to catch it. We all need to be grammar police. It comes with the job!
Looking to possibly hire on with JLG. Is anyone happy there?? nm
Cover letter possibly?? nm
Were there too many ESLs or possibly not enough work? nm
Does this natl possibly start with a big W?
Gee, could it possibly be because there are a lot of people who actually like working
there? You have obviously had some bad experiences. I am sorry for you.
What can they possibly find to email about all day?
Could it possibly have anything to do with being a HOLIDAY on Monday? nm
Amen! Possibly the most thankless job in our
Possibly trying to get a recruiting bonus. nm
Possibly the whole idea of their email isn't
but instead, to drive as many of their US competition out of the industry as possible.

No one could possibly have problems. CB has said everything is perfect again.
She has had such great experiences even though it has been pointed out that she is working under completely different circumstances than the majority of the MLS. The MLS on BeyondTxt get rated on the percent of work going to QA and get written up if it is too high. But she would never understand that in the glass house she lives in.

She has never had and will never will sent a question to HR@trcr.com and not get a response for 2 weeks if they ever do respond. She will never have to ask any questions about insurance because she knows all the answers.
the Offshore Wagon possibly?
Appreciate all the responses so far...
The info has been very helpful so far.  I really feel even more confident in my decision about this company.
JLG responses
Thanks for your responses, I appreciate It!
thank you both for the responses *S*....nm

Thanks for all your responses....sm
I'm tired of following a schedule also and all that other humhum as an employee. I like being my own boss. I'm checking on medical benefits also, and although high, I believe I can swing it.

Thank you again!

I knew there had to be a better way to understand these doctors.  I know the mumbly ones are so used to saying things over and over again that they ramble through, skipping words, etc...They don't care that I'm new!!!  I will give all of your suggestions a try - thanks a lot!  Sometimes I just don't know how you do it...

Thanks for the responses. nm
Thx all for the responses.
Thanks for the responses sm
Both sound good. I didn't realize (maybe I'm naive) that services required so many weekends. The service I worked for previously required no weekends or holidays (local, not national). Currently I work 4 weekends a year and 1 holiday, which I hate as it has just changed in the last 3 years; we never were required to work any weekends or holidays for the first 10 years I worked there.

The MDI flexibility sounds perfect; however, I'm not too excited about two weekends a month. I guess I need to reevaluate what I want/need!

Thanks again for the great information!
Thank you for your responses .... nm
YOu might not get a lot of responses because
most companies don't pay a percentage like MQ does. MQ does pay the most for ASR, believe me. Most companies pay around 3 to 4 cpl maximum for ASR, some in the 2's. So, you have to do the math yourself, but believe it or not, MQ is the high end, even with the latest cut. Thus the reason for the cut, and to stay competitive in the market, and the ASR market is huge right now.
Thank you for your responses.
Where were these responses before?? - sm
Would someone e-mail me with VALID points about this company?  I have heard from people who love it there who gave detailed explanations why they enjoy working there.  Owner extremely pleasant and kind to me.  A lot of hassle of paperwork to go through to be hired - why would they then be nasty to you??
Thanks for all your responses
I am going to apply and see what happens.
Thanks everyone for your responses..
Before I could test, they sent me an email stating they had already hired someone for the job. So I am still looking.

Thanks for your responses sm
I have not worked for an out-of-state company and don't know how it works, cannot afford to be surprised with a whopping surprise phone bill. I downloaded and passed tests but did not have to accept any offers yet, so am not familiar with how the phone charges work. I know some on here have been cut off and had to pick up the tab, etc. Excuse my ignorance, and thanks for being kind enough to reply. Lots of outsourcing going on locally, have been an unwilling victim and have no clue as to long-term usage and downloading long files, etc. I don't think Vonage is available here, but shall check. Thank you again for your patience and understanding, don't need any surprises as some are not honest and forthright, as you well know!
Thanks for all your responses! I am
going to go for it. I had to decide between them and a great offer with Transcend, but I like the idea of flexibility better than shift work. Thanks again!
