What Company is This? I have been hired by a company that is sending a foot pedal.. Don't want t
The company cutting cpl, the company stopping paying for headers
Good of the company? As IC, I am my own company. Not my problem if she has problems as long as I do
Accepted a job with a new company, gave two weeks notice to my old company..

Old company, let me go before two weeks was up.  New company, said they were having trouble getting me set up and my equipment ready, but they would pay me while I waited.  It's been a month, still no check from new company even though I was told it was "in the mail."  I have no income and am at a loss. 

I have a signed offer letter from the new company, contracts, etc.  I applied for unemployment, but old company is saying I quit and technically I am currently employed with the new company!  New company is not returning calls or answering email.

What should I do!?!?!?!

I started sending my resume out today, but the process of getting a new job will take at least two weeks and I need money now to catch up on what I'm behind!

You don't want to work for this company. Call your current company and
tell them that you have decided against the new position and tell them that you would like to stay. It is cheaper for them to let you stay than to train someone new. A company who could be so tacky as the one you just spoke of is one you do not want to work for. You can rescind your resignation. If you are a good MT, they will be glad you did.
With my company, ICs use their own emails, employees have company email.
COMPANY INQUIRIES belong on Company board, please!
....3 months later my old company rehired me; can you return to your 1st company?
Local radiology company, not transcription company
who has only 5 transcriptionists and are not hiring at this moment. We all work at home and get great benefits, no insurance out of pocket and 22 days paid vacation in the first year, after that it goes up. I feel very fortunate to have found them, but again I chose them because they did not do production, so now that they are, I'm a little disappointed.
I think it varies greatly from company to company...sm
I was hired five months ago by a national straight out of school at 8 cpl. I think it just depends on your knowledge level and ability, and of course, what the company is willing to pay.
i think it varies from company to company and/or location

VR company? Not when the MT company owns its own VR equipment. n/m.
I have my own company email with my new company.
I can't answer your questions in your original post, I can tell you that with my new company, I have my own company email account, and I much prefer it. My old company had us use our personal email accounts, and they listed everyone who received emails in the cc line. They really never maintained those lists, and I received emails from them for a full five months after I quit - that despite my repeatedly asking to be removed from lists. Because the list had been passed from one person to the next in the company, I kept having to block sender after sender. Finally I replied to all, for each and every email I had gotten over a month's time. Well, that pretty much ended it.
I like to keep work and personal separate as much as possible.
It can vary from company to company.
If a company is on one coast and you on the other it can affect shift time, meaning usually if you want to start work 9-10 instead of 11 you could for 3rd shift, etc. 
Buy your own... company computers are for that company only!
some of what you want to know varies from company to company,
client to client. The services each have their own QA grading system and you will get a copy at hire that tells you everything they deduct, and for how many points. This usually also includes formatting, such as wrong dates, right exam/wrong patient, etc.

You will need to know your punctuation and grammar first and foremost and use it properly, this is what you do. THEN if the client requests garbage in/garbage out (usually because they don't trust leaving anything up to us), you give it to them even though it hurts -- and should not be marked off QA for it.

Where do you study? Colleges with the 2 yr transcription course in my state make you take a year (or 2) of English grammar. No offense, but it's pretty much a 5th/6th grade review (is vs are, doctors' vs doctor's).

blanks will be limited, usually to 2, before you cannot send the report to client.

Wrong shortcuts - pay attendion to detail.
Varies from company to company
My first company I chose specifically because I knew they had a mentoring program and you had 12 weeks of "mentoring" to get up to speed. The training was very thorough. The first week was all training classes. There were very limited samples (1-2 per doc if at all). I worked there 6 months and never made their production quota, but they didn't care. When I asked my account manager about it, she said they knew the account was very difficult 95+% ESLs) and she wasn't worried about my production, that I was doing well.

I have also worked with companies that just did a training over the phone (usually about an hour) just to learn the platform. Then they did full QA for a day or two and then I was on my own. For both of these companies, I could review all the past reports of the doctors on the platform. That was really nice. I didn't have production requirements with these positions, just a daily schedule that I had to stick to. They just wanted to know when I would be working.

My recent company gave me a 10-minute training over the phone and gave me a couple of samples of a couple of the harder docs. I then had to submit 3 reports to the account manager to review, and then I was off on my own and was required to meet production immediately.

So it all depends. Each company is different. Good luck on the new job!
Try the company board with name of company.
My company did
They accessed and I watched what they were doing. It was an odd occurrence for me to watch...amazing, actually. I was amazed at the technology, but I suppose everything was okay, cause not had any problems from it. Like I said, I could see everything they were doing. It was like they had control of the mouse and I was watching with them sitting beside me!
My company did....
I was having major problems and they had to gain access to fix it. He told me that after our session, access could not be gained again. My husband (who is a computer nerd) confirmed this.
the company is e-Tranz out of Snellville GA
which company?
There is Transcription Solutions, Inc. in Texas and there is Transcription Solutions of South Carolina. 
a company I got a job with
They say that as an IC I should carry insurance due to if I type something wrong or whatever they will not back me unless I am an employee and the Dr. or client can sue me......
What is it you want to know about them?
You could try this company.

Try Beyond Words - I worked for them for a while and they are exactly what you are looking for.  I don't know if they are hiring or not, but it can't hurt to try. 


I have recently started working for JLG Medical. They pay good line counts for acute care. I was informed they are looking to hire over 100 MTs. So far, I am very satisfied. They do assign you to several different accounts so that you do not run out of work, but if that does not bother you, this is a company you might want to look into.
Just My Company??? Any others??

Is my company, Medquist, the first one to get set up with a convenient auto link in our posts, set up by MTStars, and not the posters, to direct readers to MTStars "review" site, where they get to inform everyone of whatever info they choose -  outsourcing status, bad press, bad reviews, and all the negatives in one easy click??  I've only seen the link for MY company to date, as well as even further linking their transcription platform.  Lots of other companies below with no cute link to "bash" them provided by MTstars. Is MQ by chance just your first choice of this new "change"? Company board has no such handy links for other companies either.  While I work for MQ, and certainly have HUGE issues with them, this board will now be a true conflict of interest for MQ employees to even post on, as the board itself has now taken an aggressive stance of being anti-Medquist. So, do we support a forum that could help Medquist lose accounts, while helping their MTSO friends gain accounts, via a slanted info display? It was camouflaged before, the favoritism of certain companies, while flaming others, but still obvious to those of us who hang here, and still denied by Admin. But this is openly helping steer everyone and anyone to a preselected list of negatives, handpicked by MT Stars.  Though, naturally, I will be told via "private email" that they are working on posting the positives. And, as dismal as all things MQ may seem, there ARE positives. Not gonna post them either, nor the negatives, as that is not my beef.  While I am waiting to see what the courts decide regarding MQ, there are still 10K MTs employed by MQ, not to mention countless innocent tech support people, etc., so for MTStars to aggressively campaign against MQ using this board as their tool is NOT fair for the MTs.  And Gee, isn't that was MTStars always said this board was about? The MTs, no matter who we worked for?  Well, I can't give my suppor to a forum that is threatening to take MY income away as well!I know - nobody will miss me, good riddance, etc. But the point is - just wait til its YOUR precious company being negatively impacted. Pretend you work for Transcend, or Spheris, or Medware, or MDI, or Diskriter - (by the way, in fairness' sake, when I post this, all these company names should now have been converted to hyperlinks). If they are - fair. If they are not - slanted and NOT fair.  If someone even posts negatively about your companies, some of you get foaming at the mouth - we all can relate that while we ALL are unhappy about something with our companies, its another thing to sit back and watch them being slammed with one negative after another.  Imagine now if MTs and any reader can be directed via link from your very own post to some "review" section that just lists all the crap about your company. Not cool. Not impartial and will negatively impact the life of this board, and the honesty and credibitily of any referrals. This board is censored, but not openly. That is the WORSE censorship there is!  We all know companies like KS have negatives get removed - POOF! not hard to figure - MQ's negative stay til eternity - preserved better than a can of SPAM! and it is NOT just about offshoring. That's just an excuse and 1 piece of the equation.  Period.  So, where are all the links for dirt on all the companies??? Probably won't be watching, cause I am so disgusted with this garbage.  This isn't a place for MTs to share and support each other. Its a forum that is supposed to fool us perceived stupid MTs into thinking its for us, but its a tool for someone to pursue their one agenda. Which is fine, but be HONEST about it.


Has anyone worked for Breitner Transcription?  Are they a good company to work for.



RE: company
Searched archives for Breitner and came up with: Documents 1-50 of 74 displayed; i.e., a total of 74 posts, albeit, dated 2004 for the most part.
only company that has not been
trashed on here. I am just VERY unhappy with my current company.
what the company is?
I would like a $1000 paycheck again.
What is the name of this company???
Do you remember the name by chance?
Who do you work for?
You should just try another company.
There are a LOT of good MT companies hiring that provide you with equipment. Did you even try any others? MQ sucks, yes. But $10 an hour? MQ didn't do that to you... You chose that. If you're that skilled of an MT, try a good company!!
I would not go with them at all. First company
national that I ever worked for and had a horrible experience with it. Not worth the headache.
New with the company

I have heard they 1/2 line rate per paycheck? Is this correct? Confused

I think my company does
Looking for a company

I'm looking for part time hours, about 500 lines a day, either acute care or clinic.  I have 10+ years of experience in both acute care and clinic work, including teaching hospitals and heavy operative experience.

I am having a problem finding what I need because I am not consistently available 20 hours a week, which is what most companies require for part time.  I'm looking for a company with a line quota, not necessarily a certain number of hours.   

Any suggestions out there?  TIA   

The company would have to....sm
still have to allow you to take the PTO hours you had accrued or agree to pay you for them (that's federal labor law stuff for ya).  A lot of places don't allow you to accumulate PTO if you're part-time but you'd need to check your company policy to find out if there is any available and how it's calculated if there is any available.
You said it best and I couldn't agree more.
what company?
I am and like the company....sm

I've never had a problem with running out of work or communicating with the staff there.

Are these two the same company?
MDI-FL and MDI out of Maryland? 
best company

what is the best company to work for in terms of benefits, line rate, no overseas, etc.   Any info would be greatly appreciated.  May be moving soon


new company
looking for company with good benefits, good pay, good platform, provides equipment with 24/7 tech support, etc.  or  ... is this asking too much
rre: new company
Transcend is what you are looking for.
I don't know what company you are
working for, but the company I work for told me to work as much as I want, if I want to work off the clock that is more than welcome.  I have not done it, but I was told they appreciate that, all the work they can get done.  Running out of work is the pitts.  That is why I am taking a second job.   
new company
Half newbies and half seasoned MTs not reasonable - make it 1/3 or 1/4 newbies and the rest seasoned. All of your vet MTs will not want to be mentors, just MTs, QA or editors. A mentor should be able to handle at least 5 or 6 newbies, so you really wouldn't need that many mentors.

Give the newbies at least $10 an hour, so they will stick with it. With the quality of dictation nowadays, it is a wonder that anyone new to this job sticks it out - make it worth their while and consider it an investment in your company's future.

Good luck to you. I'm getting out of MT soon, or I would put my name on your list.
best company

would like to know everyone's opinion regarding the best company to work for from home.  I keep seeing people say something good about a company and then turn around the next day and something bad is said, so I keep putting them on my list and then taking them off.   Your opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Best company - sm
Depends on what YOU are looking for...would help to have a list of what you want - employee, IC, benes, etc.
Well, let's see. Which company would you like to see SM

volunteer to fold? That is not going to happen.

As long as schools are churning them out and as long as doctors are tight and the beancounters are on the prowl, cheap transcriptionists (here and abroad) will dilute the market.

It can't change and it won't.
