Medivoxx - Posted By: Melissa VanCoevering

I know there was a posting recently about this company, but I cannot seem to find it now.  The position they have is for a MT/editing position using VR.  I am not too familiar with this, so if any one has info on it I would appreciate it.  One of my concerns is how many lines per day doing editing VR work produces? Another question I have is if anyone else out there does VR work, is it worth it?  Thank you all.

Internet information - Posted By: SCMT

I am going to be moving to an area where high speed broadband and DSL are not available - and the company I work for, as well as most other companies that I have seen on the jobseekers forum require one of these types of internet service - does anyone have any idea of how I can either get around this or of any companies that do not require these - and perhaps can use satellite or some other type where a receiver is placed on your roof that picks up a radio transmission.  That is the only type service available there.  I have heard from one Transcriptionist that said AT&T could perhaps install a pole in my yard for around $400 in order to get their DSL and I am going to check on that - but otherwise - I need help with this - and my options are running out.  I have been an MT for 15 years and worked at home for most of those years - I cannot imagine doing anything else - but this move is for my husband's business - so I'm stuck as far as where I can move.  Any information would be appreciated - either emailed or on this board.  thanks

Anyone know about FutureNet - Posted By: DR

Any info would be appreciated.

Good point about attrition below - Posted By: TT'er

I have never run out of work at TT.  Hmmm, could it be because I work instead of sitting on the boards complaining while I'm *waiting* for work to come in.  Adjust your hours, stop playing on the message board, and be willing to type whatever comes your way - all work types.  They sure aren't going to take work away from someone who is busting her butt for a minimum of 8 hours, producing a lot of high quality work, and give it to somebody who *checks in* when she's not complaining on the board.  So maybe it is a form of attrition after all.  I'm not a manager pretending to be an employee either.

TT is the best company EVER, and every single blasted day it's the same 2 or 3 people hogging this board and griping about low work.  Good grief, get a life!

What is a level 2 MT at Mescribe - Posted By: Betsy

I was told if I took the position with them I would be a level 2 MT. I asked the recruiter what was a level 2 MT. He said he would have to get back with me after Easter break.  I know they have clinic MTs, ER MTs and Acute care MTs.  Can someone clarify for me what a level 2 MT is at Medscribe.  Thanks

NY MTSOs....sm - Posted By: nn

Question about Softscript software... - Posted By: passing through

I am getting ready to start with SoftScript and I was wondering if any current employees could tell me if you can get a good line count with their software.  I am sure after working with it a bit it will not seem so clunky, but was just wanting some other opinions.  Thanks.

For stiff wrists, etc - Posted By: Megan

Just found a great place for ergonomic devices. It is called Ergo-items.com. My right wrist gets a workout with having horses and helping get firewood ready for winter and it feels sprained most of the time (not carpal tunnel but on the ulnar side). It got so that I had pain all the time while transcribing, so I made myself an arm support that I placed on the arms of my chair to rest both arms on.  This took the wrong angle off of my right wrist but it was like being in a highchair (lol). I looked at chairs with the arms that swivel in to make an arm rest but the price was just too much, especially with not being able to try the chair first and having to foot the shipping cost to send it back.  I just discovered this website yesterday and they have a lot of good ergonomic products at reasonable prices. I ordered an arm rest that simply clamps onto your desk or work station and you can adjust it many ways.  They also have foot pedal rests, mouse supports, and keyboards.  Just wanted to let everyone know, as in this profession, our wrists, fingers, elbows, etc all take a beating.

looking for PT IC job - Posted By: CB

I am looking to switch companies and would like some advice.  I do not want to bounce around from company to company trying to find a good one.  I have 4 years of acute care expierence in multiple specialties, own my own pedal and computer, and would like IC status preferably part time, but I would like to work as much as possible.  I am working for a company where I get over 90% ESL jobs.  I feel like I work my butt off to make pennies.  They do not pay very well and I am looking for a good company who pays at least 6 cpl hopefully more with about 50% ESL.  Is there anything out there?  Sometimes I think this may be a fairytale job.....

Thanks in advance for all the help!

I am working for a company, only been - Posted By: gotta vent

there about 7 or 8 weeks. Started out on a platform. The hospital account then upgraded this platform (ha) to a supposedly better version. Get it upgraded. The first day for the first 6 hours of my shift, they couldn't get the stupid program going. They finally get it going and spell check doesn't work right. Doesn't recognize medical words and won't let you add new words to the dictionary. This particular hospital has 2 sections. In order to get to the different section of the hospital to transcribe a report, you have to come all the way out of the system and log back on. You may have to log on and off 10, 15 times a day depending on what job comes to you. No rhyme or reason to the way it qeues jobs. Just randomly switches you back and forth, back and forth to the different areas of the hospital. I'm just about to go nuts. Working at Wal-Mart, McDonald's, cleaning commodes, anything, is looking better than this. Sorry for the long post. Just had to take a break and vent before I explode!!!!!!!!!!!

How do you make the big decision - Posted By: frogmommie.com

on which company to go with when there are good and bad points about each?  I'm wavering between Global Info Systems (also known as GIS) and SoftScript and have gotten an offer from both.  I got an offer from Opti-Script but turned it down.  Need some solid reliable advice before next Tuesday.  Any of these 3 companies worth trying?  HELP!

Kudos to ex-Transcenders... - Posted By: kyradmt

For standing up to these lousy companies who think they can s*** on us and feed us a line of crap, thinking we're too stupid not to buy into it! I am so disgusted and angry about what I've been reading - if Medquist pulled this on us I'd be outta there in a New York second. You guys are too good and there are too many other companies out there to put up with this kind of bull. Remember, we are in the driver's seat, we can be picky - demand far exceeds supply for professional MT's and you guys are sticking it to Transcend as should all new and old MT's. I also believe MTStars should ban any further job postings from Transcend - it is a total insult to us to allow them to continue to post, IMHO.

Thank you for standing up for yourselves and, indirectly, for all us MT's!
