about a position. What about that constitutes a lie?

    Well you called her a liar. We have a lot of new MTs
    who appear to be happy. When you call someone a liar, you should be prepared to back up that claim. I am sorry they changed their mind on the trainer position. Perhaps they put it on hold. At least they told you that they decided not to hire anyone. Some companies leave you hanging.
    Please stand by and wait your turn to be called a liar.

    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.
    Where'd you get the changed her mind about the position part??
    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!
    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...
    You are just a liar
    You are making this up!
    never said that- I am not going to subject myself to this anymore-- just love my job and that's that.
    I am sorry if you took that I called you a liar, just thought you should share the info- I don't search this board too often. I was looking word help and thought I would jump on to see if there was any GOOD news about our direct deposit and ran across all this. Again, sorry if you felt that I called you a liar- don't know you to do that!
    Hey, you don't have to call me a liar ...
    What I said is absolutely true for me. It may not be the case for other people, but my experience has been very positive with WMX. So, it's not a crock of sh##. I'm not trying to talk for other people, just telling about my own, true, actual experience.
    or maybe you can't ADD. Liar. $20.00 in your dreams!
    don't even think you'll make that kind of money there. They pay about 6 cents a line for typing and 3 for speech recognition editing. It's an insult.
    Thank you. I am not a liar. I send the reports too
    because I was warned with a written warning. So, I upped the ante and started doing the required line count and quality flew out of the window.
    A person who has proven to be deemed a liar

    No one has had to wait six weeks to start. You are a liar and a troublemaker.
    We also do not supply equipment any more, so that is another lie. Unreturned phone calls? Another lie. All 8 people in the office answer the phone and take care of the person who called immediately.

    You are a troublemaker and obviously have nothing better to do than post lies.

    The only time posts get pulled is when someone calls someone out by name or gives away account or confidential information.

    There is NO ONE that has slipped through the cracks. No one.
    Calling someone a liar is not a small thing. I am not defensive.
    I know the owner and have for a few years. When I see someone call someone a liar, I want to know what constitutes a lie in your opinion?
    well she is a liar then. the majority speaks and the truth has been heard. sorry, actions speak

    The email said the owner as she is the owner of the email software package. sm
    We got the list from AHDI. If someone does not wish to be on our email list, there is a link to click on at the bottom of those for opting out. We immediately remove those that click the link.

    We also have a few mailling going out. Same thing - if you opt out of the email program, we will remove you from all contact.

    We need transcriptionists for many new accounts and have ads on here and other sites, as well as several magazines. We are going to need over 100 MTs in the next 3 months due to new accounts and more work on existing accounts!
    They have called me twice and I have not yet called them back
    Per your recommendation, I just might. Thank you.
    I called and called and e-mailed my STM. When that got no

    results I went over her head.  Got another account, but with 3 accounts still not enough work to get in more than 20 hours/week.  I worked a shift that was part 2nd/part 3rd.  Some days OT was offered, but then there wouldn't be work the next day. 

    No one called you a joke, just called the post a joke because
    we all know better, but you're entitled to your opinion.  You're the one insulting saying those of us who don't like SS probably couldn't cut it and that is the reason for our complaints.   You would be hard pressed to find anyone who ever worked for SS to agree with you about how wonderful they are.   They aren't getting new accounts, yet they always have an ad running - umm, let me think why that is. 
    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!
    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.
