To those who have ignored "The Transcription Doctors" (14 ads in 6 weeks) - Pat yourself on the back -- Way to Go

Posted: Feb 28, 2010

To everyone who has been looking for a job for months with no response, PAT YOURSELF ON THE BACK if you have had the integrity and fortitude to ignore all the posts that “The Transcription Doctors” have put on the Job Seeker’s Board (14 posts in 6 weeks).  

It looks like they are getting desperate.  Maybe they will finally figure out that no one with any self-confidence and experience is willing to work for them for the slave-labor wages they are offering (8 cpl straight and 3 cpl VR for an Independent Contractor). 

If we can ALL stick together and ignore these low-paying offers, maybe some of the MTSOs will finally give us raises to keep us or offer higher starting wages to get us to work for them.  If they want the best of the best, they have to pay for us. 

Hang in there.  Do not settle for a job because you are tired of looking.  There are good jobs out there and we have to send a message that we are tired of working for less than minimum wage.

The reason they are advertising so much..... - lindab

is because their "parent company", Superior Global Solutions (global being the key word here) was just awarded a huge contract out of Dallas. I have heard te account is a friggin nightmare! Lots of VR, lost of ESLs and very very low pay.....

I didn't realize SGS and TTD were affiliated. - Explains a lot.

It is criminal how men and women (mostly women) built the once honorable and integrity propelled MT industry that is now being pirated by some of the the most unscrupulous, 'not giving a damndest,' low paying, unfair labor practicing scoundrels on the entire globe. I agree with you. Refuse to work for companies who offer such conditions and meager pay. ESLs, poor dictators, mechanical voice file corruption and VR are very difficult, but more than acceptable if the pay reflects the expertise that goes into transcribing such.

PS: Good news at my company. Our immediate supervisors finally tired of our trip to hell in a handbasket and took it upon themselves (with no threats or ill will towards upper management) to have an honest discussion with the staff. Now the sinking ship's production and accuracy have improved greatly, and I think the ship is gonna sail. I hope upper management notes that and does not muck it up again.

Superior Global should be ashamed! nm.. - NM

Low Pay, No Training - Lucy

and that is just the beginning. An e-mail went out that missing a TAT will give them the opportunity to slap you with a $50.00 charge - Oh yeah, but she really didn't mean to upset anyone by tht e-mail! What was that song, "Take this job and ...."?

LOW PAY? TRY NO PAY! - still waiting

I am still waiting for my meager paycheck after 2 months. I hope they go down in flames!

Transcription Doctors - A Fool

[ In Reply To ..]
Yep! I was a fool. I worked for them one month, part-time. I made a whole $84.12!!! And that was BEFORE taxes were taken out!! Couldn't believe it. I'm done with them! 3 cents a line for editing and 7 cents for actual transcription be out-lawed!!

Does not pay - RoadRunnerMT

I know someone who worked for them a few years ago and took about 3 months to get paid. NEVER accept payment as "when I get paid, you get paid". Not a good way to do business.

TTD (The Transcription Doctors) Does It Really Take 5 Weeks To Get Your First Check And No DD?
Jan 29, 2010

I really want to apply with TTD as I have 5 years experience with EditScript and love it.  The lower pay on the platform does not excite me too but waiting 5 weeks to get a first check and then waiting on snail mail thereafter to get paid is somewhat of a deal breaker.  I really need a job but I am not sure I need one that bad. I just wanted some clarification as they are so many different things that are said about them.  I need a job, not a headache. ...

Transcription Doctors TTD
Feb 21, 2010

To the poster who posted below looking for information on TTD.  They don't have their own accounts.  They work for Superior Global and maybe others.  Superior pays them to find ICs.  They probably pay them 4 cpl and then TTD pays you a cruddy 3 cpl to edit VR reports.  They don't offer direct deposit because Superior is paying them and then they pay you, which is why you have to wait a month for your check.   I would never work for a company that is just bascially an agency hir ...

I accidentally posted this on the main board too so sorry for the repeat post. I saw a post here that TTD was a bad company to work for. I recently graduated form CS and I have been looking for a job for the past 2 weeks. TTD offered me a job without doing any testing and I thought that was odd. I really want to gain experience since but I don't want to work for a horrible place. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! ...

My recommendation is to have any MT who feels her time is valuable to Stay very far away from this company. I am going to be very careful in how I word this.  Company did not pay me correctly.  Our line counts did not match.  Experienced problems with line count accuracy early in employment.  Kept accurate records of line counts (their counts and my counts).  Was only paid 1/10th of first invoice.  Inquired about issue several times, and only when I sent an email to ...

Does anyone have any info on Transcription Doctors or TTD, Inc.  I sent a resume and received a ton of new hire paperwork, but no description about the job or even a phone call, just watch a video and start working.  I see they have tons of job postings so I am weary there will be enough work or if there is work actually.  There are a lot of red flags so I thought I would check before I spent the effort.  Thanks. ...
