Serving Over 20,000 US Medical Transcriptionists

Yeah, and the really sad thing is they will lose the GOOD MTs.

Posted By: Another TT MT on 2009-04-22
In Reply to: Of course, that is why TransTech hired SO MANY MT's as of late because they had this big - TT mt2

Yes, I too see a mass exodus of the good MTs as those who have no other choice but to stay at TT are stuck with VR. 

Very disappointing, TT, very disappointing...

its one thing for the MTA to strike - they will not lose their jobs
to INDIA!!! But transcriptionists will and HAVE lost their jobs to India and the Philipines and now more recently, to Trinidad
They will continue to lose good MTs
if they don't straighten up. Once the labor board gets on their casse, they will have no choice in straightening up.
They lose as many as they get. This would be good for US-based companies BUT it leaves
a bad taste in the mouths of all involved, which can make them hesitate to try another company. Lose/lose for everyone IMO.
Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing
Yeah, all that I know but curious about the Hancock thing.
apparently you did not get that?
So SE lose their SE bonus, lose the ability to work as much or little as they want and just
basically lose all around with no gain that I can see. Well, good for MQ. I am sure a lot of people will be moving on.
Think of it this way, if they do lose the account, you lose your job. Just do your part and be a te
me three! that company is a lose-lose situation if you want
good thing it is a temporary thing sm
because people with your attitude don't stay in anything very long anyway. Nobody has to listen to that crap to keep their job.

You don't know me either. you can say old fart all you want (when did 53 get to be old fart....too funny) but at least I am a valuable employee who can get a decent job!
Had the same happen here, heard the same thing, good references and good ....sm
job record will get you better $$$ if you are willing to promote yourself, search like crazy, talk to everyone, etc., but I have never been paid a cent more for CMT, what a waste, and all the years I paid my dues to AAMT, what a joke, they did NOTHING to better our field, just took the money for better conventions, as far as I can see.
LOL! Good to see you on here! Yeah, I took it and

more at Spheris, I'm sure Scott Bozo would hire me back in an instant after I called him a humorless Nazi when I left.  We're out of work here, I mean NADA; even our friend in Ponte Vedra has nothing, this company is totally without.  That's one of the main considerations for getting out; WMX is screaming for OT from what I hear.  I'll keep ya posted! Good to talk to ya, GF!  Maybe you could take a trip to Biloxi for me.....

Yeah, good luck getting anything....
from most MTs.
yeah, it really doesn't look good at all
if they are as bad as a lot of people say they are, they really need to get it together before sending out them ads. scccaaaarrryy
yeah right. not good enough of a coverup SORRY
Stop making excuses for Softscript. All you did was show others including newbies WHERE NOT TO APPLY. So immature and unprofessional.
Yeah, and since when has it ever been good business
practice to repeatedly shuffle MTs around, off of accounts they're fast and accurate on, to ones they're going to be slow on until they learn? And once they DO learn, you yank 'em again.

Why do you think constant employee turnover is good business? No matter how much money you *think* you're saving, did it ever occur to you that the constant turnover means:
1 - There's something wrong with the way you're running the place, or with your pay, or your equipment, or all of the above.
2 - Crummy quality. Do you think your clients and prospective clients don't know that you change employees more often than most people change their underwear? Of course they do. It shows in the work they're getting back.

Oh. And BTW: Don't think for a minute that you're getting away with sneaking all that work off to India, thinking 'they'll never know'. And if they don't know, then all us MTs intend to tell them.
Yeah, you get to see how good or bad their voice quality is!! nm
Yeah it sure does feel good to vent here tho
Oh yeah, I'm sure that one of us will come up with some good letters to send the clients. nm
Yeah, they said the same thing about the I-Pod, XM Radio and Serius Satellite radio a year or so ago
Just because a product isn't technologically perfect from the get-go (which one is?) doesn't mean they won't continue to fine-tune and tweak it until it is.

Deny all you want, but it's coming.
Yeah, but the sound quality is horrible on all accounts. Good luck with that!
The only good thing I can say about SS is if you

go to work for them you'll not have the experience to know how horrible they are and when you leave you'll realize how horrible they were.

The sound quality is horrific.  Some accounts have ESL dictators that are horrendous and I have 20 years' experience and do 85% ESL.   Management is a joke.  They don't know how to treat MTs.   The only reason they offer the mentoring program is they can't get good, experienced MTs to work for them. 




Good thing you did!!!!!!!
I did - not a good thing..
I did radiology. Lots of demographics to populate and training sucked.  Not a money maker.
That was really the only good thing going for them. nm
Blanks can be a good thing!
They prove you know what you don't know! Very important in this work. Just be sure that all else you transcribe is right on.

My goal was always for 100% (thanks Scrapper), but really no more than two blanks in say 3-6 reports, and that has landed me lots of offers.

My first test, btw, was with MedQuist. I asked before transcribing the test how the scoring system worked in order to judge when to say when if it got impossible. No harm in asking!

Consider it a good thing they never got back to you..sm

I worked for them for a year.  They never answer e-mails or get back to you regarding anything.  The platform is great but the sound quality is horrible.  They move you from account to account and I always ran out of work.  Not the most professional company around.

One good thing about America - sm
if you want a job, you MAY have to conform.

EVERYTHING is being outsourced. If you do not want a job because it hurts your feelings that the people who OWN the cmpanies oursource, then that is just dandy with me. Maybe I'll take your perfect job and be happy with it. Your loss.
Agreed - I think it's a good thing.
Good thing that have not contact me....
because I will definitely not go back. Do you know what their new company name is?
That's another good thing about TT - they don't bother you (sm)
constantly with emails.  I wondered about that when I first started too (3 years ago), but you'll soon come to realize they leave you alone to do your job.  If something is wrong, they will let you know.
...a good thing to have. Really helps! NM
Good one! I am going to do that exact same thing when I get off.
Perhaps something of this nature would be viable as it is as a letter to the Editor of our local newspapers? 
a good thing and stay put, not think! nm
Sometimes failure is a good thing - sm
I would have to say you need to be looking at this as a blessing because more than likely that is exactly the type of dictation you would be listening to day in, day out.  I have 90% really bad ESLs on my accounts that are wearing me out right now.  There have GOT to be better accounts out there for us both. 
While you are laughing, that might not be a good thing because
I thought I was reading up at the top of this that the pay for VR at TT was 3.5 which is even less than what this person is making. I think at 3.5 or less folks are really going to be unhappy.
Good thing you're independent,

Wow, you are scary. It sounds like a good thing for
TransTech that you moved on. Good riddance.
Good thing you are just a recruiter - definitely not a speller - LOL

If those opportunities truly exist in this co., then it will be a good thing. s/m
But I've been around long enough that I've heard this all before, and the statistics are not on our side. And even when the MTs DO see an improvement, it can sometimes take 5-10 years to finally trickle down to them, as they are usually at the bottom of the do-do list. I do sincerely hope that I am wrong, and that this company is truly different. Only time will tell.
I disagree - pooling can be a very good thing indeed sm

Well-created pools can be a blessing to MTs because they prevent cherry-picking, plus they are a boon to the clients who receive ALL their work back in a timely fashion, instead of whatever the MT feels like typing.  Now bad pooling (throwing too many doctors into a huge pool) is another thing entirely - that is bad for productivity because there is simply too much variety for an MT to learn any one physician well. 

Another good thing to ask is reliability of server. sm
Some companies have frequent down time. It is good to know if this happens and if so, will you be compensated for it or expected to make up time lost.
Shouldnt that be a good thing? Means we are in TAT.
Same thing happened to me......oh well, found something just as good..nm
Yes, but that's a good thing. They demand quality.
Of all the nationals and bigger MTSOs, MQ is about the only one who never does quality checking.  But in the end, that's not a good thing.  Its best to learn to stay on our toes and keep our quality up. Don't worry - you're worried about it, so that's a sign you are a great MT. Others don't care.
Point well taken. Money can be a good thing....
If you don't get caught up in trying to buy happiness...
Hoping change in CEO is a good thing
The former CEO started this mess, maybe a new one will be a change for the better.
Oh, yes, and another thing, VERY FEW ESLs, good dictators!!! NM
Oh, yes, and another thing, VERY FEW ESLs, good dictators!!! NM
It's a good thing we don't live in Canada then
as my hubby was 64 when he had his 2 heart attacks and CABG last fall. He was lucky to have survived it as it was! 
The only good thing about OSI is when you give them your notice that you are leaving!

wow, good thing i turned them down earlier this year, thanks
