I worked for a temp agency for 3 years..LOVED it. Just worked. No counts, no hassels, GREAT pay..
No benefits at the time.  I even learned pathology while temping (8 months on that assigment).  I loved the variety, the ability to say I'm not available such and such time.  I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I didn't need benefits.
I worked for them several years ago and they were great but
I've seen postings that they use outdated equipment and programs that make it difficult to keep up with a decent line count.

But when I worked there I was very happy.
I have worked for them for three years - great place.
Excellent pay and benefits. PTO is better than most companies. They match our 401-K. I like my account and my TL.

Feel free to e-mail me for more information.
I only worked there briefly, but great people, and pay always on time. sm

They do have a thing where you have to get a paper check for the first 90 days, then you can have direct deposit.   The account that I was on used ExText.

Hope this helps.  Good luck. 

Great people to work for, but I had to leave due to lack of work. Hopefully that has changed. SM
Most of us who do not live in California had to go IC. When I was there, they did not have statutory status, although they told me they did when they hired me. Their pay for VR is VERY low, not a living wage. Many of the folks in the office are ex-YOG and great to work for/with. Good luck.
The people are great to work with
and the pay is good and on time. I do find the work isn't as steady as I'd like though, but hey, that's the MT business, right?
I work for Allegiant too - great people and a
Good! Great people to work for!
Yep. Me too. Nice people, great place to work!
Great place. People are super to work sm
with and answer your questions, etc.  Pay well and always on time.  If I ever work at home again, I will go back there first.
Great bunch of people, plenty of work sm
pay on time, around 9 cpl depending on account (without spaces) or 8 cents line (with spaces). Some accounts use long distance with Laniers others use Emdat, others use a different word-based platform that is real easy to learn.IC only, you commit to a set amount of lines per day, 24 hour turnaround time, they leave you alone to do your work. I would have stayed forever but I needed the benefits.
Transtech has great people but work has been low for 5 months...nm
Platform is easy to use, and the people are great to work with. sm
I only work there part-time, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.  Good luck on whatever you decide. 
I have worked at MQ for about 9 years and have never run out of work. sm
I don't think that is the norm for most to run out of work at MQ.
I have worked for them for about six months. They're great! Work is always there and sm

pay is always on time.  They're very nice to work with, too. 

Good accounts, great people, plenty of work. sm

I'm past that "honeymoon" stage of the first few months that another poster mentioned.  I still find them to be the best for me.  Never run out of work, always there for questions, including timely responses, great people (QA and otherwise). 

I'd highly suggest contacting either your supervisor or Jane (as she offered) about lack of work.  As you should see on the daily reports, there is plenty of work out there. 

Good luck & I hope it works out for you. 

great friendly people, IC work, pay so-so (9-1/2 cpl), clumsy platform. nm
I love it there. Tons of work, great people. I am 100% happy.
Great bunch of people to work with, pay on time, my only problem is that QA is paid by line instead
of by the hour and you must listen to all reports 100% instead of just jumping and filling in the QA markers.
I've also worked there over 4 years and I have noticed the work drop
Whatever left is the crap. Also, check your line count some time. I swear that they have manipulated that also. I can now do over 2 pages and it comes up with like 50 lines. I used to be able to make a living there but can't anymore. I'll be quitting.
The same thing happened to me 2 years ago. That Indian creep gets people to work

for him. He gives this scale of how you are supposed to be paid, but it NEVER, EVER is the high range that you KNOW you are owed and deserve.  So, then your production and earning come up and they are WAY off base.  On top of that, he either pays you late or not at all.  This is fair warning...DO NOT WORK FOR CALLSTREET! 

System great, pay good, everything great, but most managers from old Edix, problems, poor people ski
when you are out of work, you are out of luck. If you are good at brown-nosing, are tough enough to be without any self-esteem, and have maybe money coming into the household on the side in case you tick someone off, then you may succeed, for a little while.

Don't ever ask questions or have problems with anything. Don't ever have a problem. Don't think you will have any control over anything you do, either.

A few 'good' managers remained when I left, but the new ones were all from the old Edix, and were completely into numbers, cared nothing for individual MTs...if there is work, you BETTER be working. If there no work, you will hear nothing, no one will help you.
I worked for SS and some people were very RUDE and I am talking about the editing people in some
instances.  It ALL depends on the person, as it does with any company.  They paid on time and the lady over me was very nice, but boy the person in QA was mean to EVERYONE!!  Never seen anything like it before.
I worked on site for many years. I've been doing this for 10 years... sm
I've worked on site, at home, for small MTSOs, for nationals, for hospitals. I've been paid per line, per minute, and per hour. I've been an MT and a QA. I have ALWAYS worked weekends and ALWAYS worked nights for the shift differential because MTs can't survive on 6 or 7 cents a line. At least I can't and I type 105 wpm.

I've BEEN dedicated from day 1, sister, so you are barking up the wrong tree.
Great pay, great benefits for 11+ years..sm
I've just started with this great company (eMTS).  I have 11+ years of experience and I was started at .10 per line as a regular employee, not IC, with a huge sign-on bonus, full benefits, very nice people, and a good account.  So far, this is the best experience I've had in my years as a transcriptionist.  Unfortunately, I don't believe they're hiring more right now, but you could always check in with them, they're online at eMTS.com.  The management seems to really care and they work with you.
Great pay rate on a 55 ccl, great lady to work for and work is not tough. sm

It is all IC work, although you still are expected to give a schedule if you are doing stat coverage.  Only major drawback is the big wait for your first check -- almost a month from the time of your first invoice.


Good luck!  

Great little company..I worked there for a short time, IC, and pay always on time, great owner too!
I had good dictators, they use FTP, and I had a 12-hour window to return the work.
You are pathetic! I have a great life, loving family, work for a great company.
You might want to fix that.

You really don't have to shout (angry person), but yes you are wrong!!

That is my last word to you!

I will add that getting a great pay check every other Friday from Medware really puts a huge smile on my face.
YOG - Lots of work, great office staff, great money. NM
Great, there are people out here who...

are the sole support of their families (who usually need to eat regularly, wear clothes and shoes and need electricity and other "luxuries."

You would tell someone in that position to be grateful for the opportunity to spend time with their children in that case?  How much quality time can a parent have with kids if they are worried about paying the bills?

Great people....
I was hired by Alltype a couple of weeks ago.  Everyone is professional and friendly.  They pay excellent and they hire both employee and IC status.  When the account that I was hired for was having technical problems they offered me an hourly wage compensation becuase it was not my fault.  Now thats a company that cares about their transcriptionists.  I'm pretty sure I'll be with them for a long, long time.
Great people nm
These people who think 40K is great sm

weren't around when this was a real career, when the pay scale was 11 cpl+ as an employee with benefits and a normal amount of paid time off during the year, equipment provided by the company, internet paid by the company.

Fast forward from then until today and what you have is a clerical job with clerk salary.

Yep. Great people.
I worked for them many, many years ago, but absolutely love the owner, Cindy, and her husband. (Back then, not sure about now), the pay was great and I felt like a member of the family. Highly recommended.
Pay is a bit low, but great bunch of people. sm

Clinic work is super easy -- 7 to 7-1/2 cpl -- and I think acute care pays 8-1/2 cpl.  They pay once a week, direct deposit, work is done in Word.

Hope this helps.


Great for some maybe....but they are nice people...nm
That was great. My heart goes out to the MDI people, too. nm
Who said people who work for KS aren't happy for people who work for (sm)
other companies?  I'm happy for people who are happy with their jobs, no matter what company they work for. 
I have had a great experience and have been with KS for 4 years. sm
Unfortunately, I think that everyone has a different experience at each company and it really depends who you deal with. I am happy at KS, as is my sister and a friend of hers but another friend of mine did not have a good start up and left after two weeks. It is all in who you work with, and this seems to be the norm at all the companies.

I do know that they have been growing steadily for the past 5 years or so and continue to grow. The things that are important to me are covered in that I make good money, love my account, get paid on time and am left alone as long as I do my work. I get good feedback and have had good experiences when I needed time off unexpectedly.

The best way with any company is to call and get your own "feel" for the company.

I am sure that if you were hired, quit your job, had everything installed and then did not hear back, that you are leaving something out here. If you were installed, why did you not start working?

Well the OP has 27 years experience. Great
Seems like the problem is becoming more widespread. Well, the people that think MQ is so great may
not after they are in the same situation. You know, things are great until they arent. One thing is for sure, it will change and all these people that are getting bonuses etc with tons of work are bound to be right along with us in the very near future. Guarantee it. MQ is after very VERY short TAT and so that will become companywide as it is already. Cant run a 1 hour TAT and have people not running out of work constantly. That also is a given.
Great people..AWFUL platform!!!nm
Consider yourself in the inner circle. She is great to people she likes but
quite the opposite if she does not. There is no pattern either, all a whim. I am lucky that she likes me, but I am afraid that the knife will someday be in my back.

JLG as a company has been great to me. Do not let the recruiter spoil the opportunity to work for a great company. Just grin and bear it because once you are in, you do not have to deal with her.
Yes, some really great, talented people have left, and that's
always a danger sign to me. If upper management keeps being mentioned as a reason these good people are leaving, somebody should take notice. This company seems to be hemorrhaging talent and keeping an incompetent, power-hungry suit. It's hard to know whether to leave or stay. I would not recommend them to anyone right now.
Great people, IC only, low pay, easy accounts, sm

direct deposit, paid weekly, always on time.

Hope this helps.  Good luck!

Just by posting that here will help a great deal of people
Thank you!
Forever, people had 2 jobs, not just MTs. And great
This is what i mean by you pilot your life, your life shouldnt just be floating you thru life.  Over the course of about 2 years, I have made conscious effort to make my life work for me. Figured out what platforms I like, what type accts.  What kind of equipment works best for me, how to efficiently handle docs and files.  In word based platform, I am Speedy Gonzales as far as how I get in and out, how I process docs. Still spend same amount of time on actual edit and type, those you can only do so fast and be correct but all other aspects, I am fast. You find your fit, which is not a one size fits all.  But, working 2 jobs is not the territory of onlyl the MT world. My dad did it while my mom also worked as RN. 
If you never worked there, then how do you know they're great?
You mentioned that you worked for a really great
company that was acquired by MQ.  Was it L&H?  I worked for them and they were wonderful.  After the merge, everything was different than what was said in the initial conference call, so I left and went to Transcend.  Was not happy there at all, so I went to MDI-MD.  This is the same thing all over again.  Not a happy camper.
It's a great company -- lots of work and great pay. sm

The people I know who worked there said they

I know a handful of people who have worked at Spheris and they all left for the same exact reason - they could never make the impossible line count (apparently it is rather high) and they also couldn't make any money (the pay isn't great either).  Spheris seems to be willing to hire MTs without experience, so it is probably a good place to start so you can have something on your resume.  Don't expect to learn much though, as quality does not seem exist at Spheris or is at best random.

Spheris is a very large company, and a perfect example of a case where bigger is not better.  They are heavy into India - they took an account away from my company and sent it right over to India.

Probably the only people making any money at Spheris are in management.
