    Changed my mind
    I changed my mind too sm

    I thought it was just me. 


    She offered me a position, but I chose not to accept the position because she was very rude.

    Just tell them you changed their mind. Not a nice
    thing to do but what they did was not nice either. No other explanation is necessary in light of the circumstances.
    Transcend-changed my mind
    I had previously posted on here about how disappointed I was with the training process at Transcend.  I wanted to come back to this board and let others know about my experience.  Because of how one employee was not doing her job as she should, it made me feel as though the whole company was that same way.  I want to set it straight that you cannot let just one person/employee represent how the entire company operates.  After venting on this board, someone within management at Transcend seen my post and emailed me to offer assistance.  She turned me over to another person and they have straigtened everything out for me.  I had 3 people following up with me on a daily basis.  They really made me feel that I was valued as an employee and wanted to make my experience there as enjoyable and productive as possible.  I am so glad that I decided to stay on.  For you people who are thinking about working for Transcend, I think that you should give them a chance.  The management there really do care about their employees and want you to be happy, have plenty of work, and enjoy the account you are assigned to.  I just wanted to set the record straight. 
    I thought about it but changed my mind after
    the ADHI gathering in Florida a month or so ago when I overheard some supervisors from there bragging about how many people they fired recently, including one who was sick and on treatment (she called it drugs, so who knows). I wouldn't want to be treated like that and won't let some supervisor get her jollies by firing me when she gets in a bad mood.
    OTI - Had us pay big $$$ for equipment and then "oops" changed their mind
    The recruiter (JC) was SO rude and obnoxious that I changed my mind.
    Dont set yourself up.

    CyMed is hiring. If you want Cardiology, I know of a place hiring. Go elsewhere from Transcend, please. save yourself!
    You called the owner a liar just because she changed her mind
    about a position. What about that constitutes a lie?
    then you get changed to a production-based position according to my offer letter
    Consider getting a part time IC position
    Trust me....all companies have this problem at some point.
    My part-time position is with . . .
    SPi-BPO.com, and after 20 years of, as you said, bouncing around, and after just over a year with them, I don't intend to go anywhere else.

    They started me at 8-cpl and, after a year, I've gone to 9.5-cpl--and that's for government work--private is probably higher.

    The PT minimum is 4000 lines/2 weeks, very reasonable, and they quite often have extra work available if you want to do more.

    The ONLY caveat would be your mentioning wanting IC status; they only offer employee status, so the only problem might be if you have some reason for a strong preference for IC.

    Otherwise, they're great--and at least the government work, I guess because accuracy is so strongly needed, I've encountered only one or two ESLs, who were nonetheless fairly comprehensible.

    Good luck,


    Healthscribe linked up with Spheris and has an office in India. I know this because I worked directly with both companies but not as a transcriptionist. Personally, I think any Transcriptionist would be better off going somewhere else.
    I'm training for a 3rd shift part-time position with them. sm

    So far, everyone has been friendly and helpful.  She did mention that it was tough to get on 1st shift, but I was not looking for 1st shift anyway.  As a bonus, the shift differential for 3rd is 2 cpl -- I can drink some coffee for that. 

    Good luck to you. 

    Part & Full Time Data Entry & Document Coding Position - Sara McDaniel - HR Administrator
    This company has ads on other web sites. You have to pay them $55 to do a background check up front. Guess what? If you don't get hired, they've got your $55. Don't know if it's legit - just posting facts.
    The owners haven't changed, MT supe hasn't changed
    I've been in their office. I know the people. It is a sweat shop and you will never be paid a decent amount or get respect. You won't know which is a good or a bad day for the person you report to until you literally get yelled at.

    They have to offer bonuses because their reputation is that bad and nothing has changed. You may get work that has been recorded 3 times from some of the worst accounts you could ever imagine. They take accounts no one else will touch. That hasn't changed.
    They changed buildings so maybe the phone number also changed...
    They are still going strong...
    The DQS is an IC position and the Dictaphone EXtext is an employee position....
    both part time...both making 9.5 cents per line...which is better IC or employee?
    Thanks :)
    I'm hoping too as I accepted position a position also nm
    OH - I thought part transcription, part escription, but don't know for sure
    They no longer hire part-time and may be eliminating part-time employees within the next 6 months.
    They are going to have those that are PT go FT if possible. Some accounts require 1 weekend day, but not all. Most transcriptionists have 1 account with 1 back-up account. I know that they are hiring for hospital accounts in medical records and radiology right now.
    No PTO for part-time. Not sure if you can work part-time or not since recent rule change. sm
    You do pay a deposit for their equipment.
    There is a part-time and a flexible part-time, just left there and they offered
    me both. Flexible, however, is more or less when they need you (I.e. weekends), part-time is fixed hours.
    They seem to have changed since I did..
    I worked for them 6 years ago. I was an employee, I see now on their website they only hire ICs. I was very happy with them, basically could work when I wanted as long as the reports were back when due. However, they somehow decided that their pay scale was unfair to new hires, so those of us who had been there, got knocked down to the new hire scale and everyone basically had to start from scratch to level the playing field. I quit shortly after, was not going to take a pay cut. I believe at this same time they also started sending some stuff offshore, not something I was ready to deal with. If they still have the same owners (I think the guys name was Ed), I found him to be very rude and only interested in himself and his $$. I believe about 6 of us all quit at the same time because they downright rude. I am now with a big national and making about double what I did with Accutype because of better systems and support.
    So nothing has changed...
    Thanks for the headsup guys. I passed the test with them and received an email, but I guess nothing has changed from past posts.

    Thanks again
    I see nothing has changed in the last
    year since I left MDI. This is exactly how they operate on every level. A lot of people don't mind but I stayed for way to long and have a much better position now without all the drama from MDI! Good luck to you.
    Pay Changed
    I also agree that you should not take the job, but if they did offer to come up to the original offer I would still not take it. In my mind, this is a either a very unorganized company or a manipulative company and either way it is unlikely things would change once actually working for them.
    Must have changed
    Their training period used to be for 4 weeks--it must have changed within the last year.
    Unless it has changed
    you get paid for training what you will be paid for when out of training.
    i changed this yr from emp to IC (SE)
    left the Q for another job...and i'd have to suggest job #2. I have been an employee for several decades, and wish i would have found the joy and freedom of being an IC-type years ago. I have my medical insurance through BC/BS of my state, and do that so i am free to change jobs if i want to. I get a little higher deductible and the premium is not so bad. As far as a computer, i decided to have a backup for my desktop and just yesterday purchased a laptop online from Circuit City (sale goes off today) for a toshiba A215-S4697, $600 (includes printer/wireless router/security software). That's less than half of what i invested in my desktop. Maybe that would be of interest to you? Feel free to e/m me if i can be of any further help. Either way, good luck!!
    looks like nothing has changed much...
    the owner gave me some sob story about how she wouldn't make any money if she paid us more than 1.5 cents/line to edit. PLEASE!!
    Unless they have changed
    since last year when I worked for them, and I doubt they have,stay away from them. They STILL call me and want me to call them and act as though I never worked for them before; I worked there 4 months. Cannot understand any of them when you need to talk to someone, never had any work even after they promised there would be plenty of work. I finally threw in the towel and left. Couldn't feed the family that way. I definitely do not wish this company upon anyone.
    Could have changed but..
    I elected NOT to take a position with them because the pay was the worst ever. They had VR accounts that they paid 1.5-2 cpl on I believe. There is NO way I'd do ANY work for that.
    Nothing has changed.
    They have told some that they have 'optimized' their work pool to eliminate the cesspool, but we are STILL getting cesspool. Nothing but empty promises.
    May be old but NOTHING has changed
    She must have changed!!!!!!sm
    This woman must have changed! She was the most moody, strange, and rude person years ago when we worked at the same company.  But I think back then, she had a substance abuse problem. not sure
    I think she changed her name.
    I read old posts, but don't remember specifics.  I think it was something about work drying up.
    JLG has not changed
    Their QA staff is rude and not helpful.
    Unless the law has changed
    it is the physician's responsibility to ensure that the record is correct when his name is signed to it.  I used to have a dictator who always ended his dictation with I have signed but have not read this document or something like that.  Every time  I typed it I thought fool!
    Is the AC a salaried position or hourly? If the position is salaried, there is
    no such thing as overtime, at least not at any places I've worked. I've been in salaried positions before and you work until the job is done or delegate it to someone you know will get it done. Only hourly employees are subject to OT pay.
    They changed their name, was it Healthscribe before? If so
    they don't pay very well. 
    MDI-MD MTs: Has something changed with Bayscribe?

    very consistently without pushing myself too hard, 300 lph if I did push myself.  But 250 without much effort.  The last several weeks I seem to only get 200 to 220 lines per hour just transcribing leisurely, and even when I push myself I have not been able to get up to 300 lph; more like 250 when I push myself.  I don't get it.  I have worked there for a few years.  I have been with Bayscribe since it started.  I'm just wondering if headers aren't being counted anymore or something.  And I do copy the document and paste it into Word and do a line count on it, and the line count comes out the same - but there is definitely something different.  I have always loved MDI but I just can't survive on 200 lph and I'm going to have to go back to my own accounts if it keeps up like this.

    I was just wondering if anyone else had noticed a difference?

    I believe they have changed the policy about (sm)
    bonus lines for reaching next level. 
    Pay Rates Have Not Changed -
    It must have been the level of the account.
    How long ago did you use it? All of that has changed
    No, I asked to be changed.
    Has Transcend changed its name to
    Another example of how this industry has changed -

    that's why many are leaving this profession.  After 10 years, that is how you're treated.  It's a shame - and very degrading.

    I hear you. A lot has changed.
    Would love to go back to an in-house job, however, in-house jobs are scarce. I just interviewed 2 days ago for a local hospital. She graded my test right in front of me and said I did excellent on the test and took me around to meet everyone in the office. Howeveer, she did tell me another person is being considered who lives 300 miles away but is willing to relocate. She obviously couldn't find a hospital job where she lives. Slim pickings. Also, hospitals are now on production requiring as much as nationals in most cases. It's something else.
    Unless things have changed, no, you have to sn
    use the Bayscribe spellcheck.
    Pay isn't good and they have changed

    how they pay multiple times.   Sound quality is bad.  They offshore.  Owner seems nice.  I don't remember anything else.  I was offered an MTposition, which I declined.  About a month later she called me and said they were offshoring and the dictation was surprisingly good and she was looking for more QA people.  I did some test files before I knew they offshored work (had only been doing it about a month), but as soon as I started reviewing the work I knew it was offshore work because surprising good it wasn't. 

    You can check the archives for more info.   They used to go by another name, but I can't remember what it was. 

    I see things have NOT changed there!
    SOS - same old stuff, different company.
