Webmedx secondary accounts -
Posted By: skeptiwebber
If you take on a secondary account, do you bounce back and forth between your primary and secondary based on turn-around times, or do you get work from your secondary only if there's no work on your primary? I'm pretty sure it's the former, but just want to be sure. TIA.
Bonus not in the mail???? sm -
Posted By: ?
I have an awkward situation on my hands and was wondering what you would do. The company I work for offers an anniversary bonus as part of its benefits package. So far I have not received this year's. Last year by this time I had already received it, though it was a little off from my start date. I feel a little weird about asking, but I guess I'm wondering what happened. Any ideas? Should I just sit tight? What if it never comes. I just don't feel comfortable calling up and asking about something like this.

IC versus Employee -
Posted By: kpg
As an IC, you can deduct at 100% all of your expenses. An an employee, you can only deduct the amount that exceeds 2% of your gross income (if you are married and filing jointly, it is yours and your sponse's combined gross income). In other words, if your joint combined gross income is $100,000, you can only deduct your expensed over $2000. That is a huge amount to have to not include. Check with any tax accountant or IRS regarding this.
Waiting for work -
Posted By: TiredMT
I guess it is just the same with all these companies, but it can be so irritating when your supervisor gives you the morning update on minutes and is thrilled that all accounts are empty and says how great it is. Why do they not understand how distressing this is to the MT?
Just sitting her twiddling my thumbs waiting......

don't do it! -
Posted By: cinco de mayo
Hi all, I would like to reiterate a previous discussion on this board. For those of you who are looking for other jobs, please do not quit your present employer for the, greener pastures. I contracted with a companies, but could not start as I hope because my daughter was in a car accident, so I sent a note to the company that I was unable to start as we had planned. The owner stated she understood and to keep her informed. I have every step of the way....... Four days later, I have gotten everything squared away with my daughter, (she is still in the hospital, but stable) but the owner apparently has backed out! Unfortunately, I spent about $40 faxing documents to this company. The owner won't even answer my e-mails! Thank God I did not quit my other job! But how COLD is that!?

C-phone question -
Posted By: Miss Willy
I have an Executive Communications System I used for a job a few years back. Is that a C-phone? The manufacturer says it is, but I am just wondering if it would work with Meditech and is indeed a C-phone. I saw on ebay what was described as a C-phone, and it is the same thing I have but I want to ask a more knowledgeable person because the manufacturer might just want to sell it to me, and it costs over $500.00. If you know C-phones and Meditech, will an Infinity foot pedal work? Thanks.
another Transcender -
Posted By: curious
I don't want to beat this subject to a pulp, but I just did my training with Transcend yesterday and I am discouraged to read MTs are running out of work on a regular basis. The recruiter was very rushed to get me started, I thought. Why would they hire new people if their accounts are running low? I don't get it.

md-it ever heard of them/any scoop? -
Posted By: northwestlooking
I was looking for a smaller company as I'm getting disgrumbled with these nationals. I found this MD-IT listed as a pacific northwest company, but see it has a lot of offices all over. Anyone ever work for them and have any comments? I see they don't want to talk to you until you take the test, which I want to avoid if they're bad news to begin with.
Thanks in advance for you help.

Holiday? What a joke...sm -
Posted By: Amphion bargain-basement MT
Are there any companies out there that actually pay their MTs holiday pay? Amphion makes you use your hard-earned, very-slowly-accru, or is there better? Just doesn't seem right. I would think they could pry their wallets open a little bit wider in this respect.

Also, how do you contact QA people? Is there an acct list with contacts on it?
