    Current Employee - Medical Transcriptionist in London, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at Accentus as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    In no particular order:
    1. Work from home.
    2. Flexible hours (day, evening or night).
    3. Lucrative bonus incentives (production and QA).
    4. Extensive training, and even more when requested! Just Ask!
    5. Friendly Team Leads, who respond quickly to any correspondence.
    6. Tax benefits.

    Cons

    They do provide information where you can purchase medical/drug benefits, but it is not paid by the company.

    Voice recognition is the way of the future, and Accentus is far beyond many companies. The adjustment period is stressful with any new system (with any job) BUT the ramp-up pay benefit can be lucrative, providing you are a fast typist; and if you are not, maybe another career path should be considered.

    Medical Transcriptionist (Medical Language Specialist) Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Accentus in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received an email back within two hours asking for a phone interview. I had the phone interview two days later and it was pretty basic. Questions about previous experience and skills, whether I was good with accents, what my home office environment consists of etc. He explained the independent contractor piece, pay rates, minimum targets etc. Then he advised that he would send an email with a link to the testing and the computer requirements for the job. The test consists of 100 multiple choice questions about medical terminology and grammar. If you get 85% on this test you will have the opportunity to complete the transcription test which consists of four dictations. The first one was on the more difficult side and the other three were fairly easy. I completed the test on the weekend and he emailed me Monday to ask when he could call to give me the good news. When he called he gave me my marks on the tests and offered me a contract.
