Poll question - Posted By: gourdpainter

As some of you may recall, I recently retired from MT.   I was wondering if the companies y'all work for would be more likely to hire newbies if they had an experienced mentor working with them?  I'm not trying to sell the service of mentoring but by way of explanation, I met a gal via the internet who is just finishing a course.  I think she would make an excellent MT and I would like to help her. As we all know, a graduate of many of the schools don't have a snowball's chance of getting hired.  I would appreciate your thoughts.

If these posts from just a few weeks ago are any indication of what we have in store for us, I'm - Posted By: Good grief.

ACMR Transcription Service?

Need input on a co. DIT transcription - Posted By: stillsearching

Had asked on the main board and got one reply.  Put in a resume to an anonymous company and got a call from DIT.  Could not find any info - positive or negative - and would like some input before making a decision to leave my present position - editing using Escription for transcription that is paying only .2 a line more than the editing.  I'm not up to the estimated 600 lines per hour of editing yet - but am more than half-way there.  I'm getting better at it - and at least there are very few blanks because the voice recognition puts something in - whether it is correct or not and then it is much easier to figure out what is supposed to be there. 

Any good, bad or ugliness with DIT would be appreciated.

Transcription Connection sm - Posted By: IC

They dare to ask for verification of a per line rate?  As an IC you can charge what you want to who you want - I cannot believe what some companies ask for and what some ICs are willing to provide.

Does Superior Global direct deposit? - Posted By: jay

Thinking of applying, but don't have car to go back and forth to bank to deposit paychecks and was wondering if this company had direct deposit and, if so, do they also direct deposit pay if the payday falls on a weekend?  I've been doing all my banking online and find that convenient.  Thank you in advance.

Companies that pay well? - Posted By: Tam/Tam

I have 15 years transcription experience, and companies I have talked to only want to pay 7.5 to 8 cents /line.  Someone with 1 to 2 years will get 6.5 to 7 cents/line.  Is something wrong here?   This just does not seem fair at all, not getting paid for your experience!!!!  Does anyone know of any fair companies out there that do compensate for experience?   Thanks.

transcription tests - Posted By: Pamela Quigley

What is the grading criteria for these company tests?  Must the transcription be totally error free, 95% error free or what.  I've had some good results, but some where I thought I had every word correct gave no answer at all.

I may be posting this question on the wrong board but - Posted By: Aching shoulders and neck

does anyone know who manufactures or carries a computer chair that has arms which pivot from the position at each side of the chair (regular position for armrests) to the front of the chair which gives you a really nice armrest. I saw one chair like this recently, but before I could even look into buying it, the college that was using it put it in for their auction and I lost track of it. It was the nicest chair I have ever sat in and the one I have now is ready for retirement. Thanks so much if anyone knows of this. :)

Which offer should I choose? - Posted By: FasTypistMT

Hi all...I currently have two job offers that I'm trying to decide between.  I was wondering if any of you could give me some ideas, suggestions, input, opinions, whatever...

I was offered clinic work with Axolotl and also offered acute care with WEBMEDX.  They are both full time employee positions, but Axolotl offers 1 cent more per line, which possibly will go up to 1.5 cents more per line after 30 days.

I've read a few posts on here about WEBMEDX and it seems mostly good things are said about them.  I haven't read much on Axolotl at all, so I'm not really sure what decision to make.  Any advice is welcomed and very much appreciated.

Thank you in advance. 

This struck me as odd - Posted By: Typing in heat wave

I have never heard a patient referred to in this way before by a dictator, like he is referring to an animal. Just thought it was funny: 

*The patient is married with 10 offspring, 4 males and 6 females.*

Maybe this heat is frying my brain, but got a good laugh anyway.

AIM Scam? sm - Posted By: Screwed

In May of this year, I paid for an internship at the AIM Program. The lady seems very nice, but she e-mailed me and said she could not get enough mentors after saying I was # this or #that (always going down but nothing else, just promises).

I paid with a credit card, but there is a clause in her contract that says that no matter if she trains or not the money is nonrefundable. Is there anything I can do?

TransTech - Posted By: Olive Oyl

Are there any transcriptionists out there who are still working on the oncology account for TT that was started in February?  If so, I was wondering if you still run out of work on this account...or is there plenty of work to go around now?  I worked for them for a few months on this account and really liked it, but we ran out of work on it quite often so I was offered what I thought was a better job elsewhere and decided to go there.  Now I am having second thoughts about having done this...I think I made a big mistake.  I loved the account and the people that work there seemed very nice and very helpful. 

If you still work at TT, do you have any trouble getting the amount of lines required each pay period?  Thanks for any info you would like to share about this.

Seascript or INFO ON PAGE RATES. TIA - Posted By: hiya

Also, anyone heard of Seascript or have any experience with them?  TIA

They are paying per page for surgery center work.  I have searched on this site for information on page rates.  Not very current info.  If anyone could offer their experience with page rates, especially for surgery center work, as a subcontractor. 



Keystrokes - Posted By: Suze

I was hired by Keystrokes for clinic work back at the first of June, worked 1 week, and then the account was lost--no real explanation for the reason.  I've been trying unsuccessfully to find out when or if I'll be put on another account since then (over a month now).  Has anyone else had this experience? 

I went with Keystrokes because of the mostly positive comments from this board and others.  I don't want to badmouth anyone, but these actions seem to uncharacteristic of them, and the lack of communication is really taking its toll on me--why wouldn't they let me know something?!! I understand most of their accounts are radiology, and there may be problems placing me on another clinic account, but I need to know something! 

Thanks for any insight--


Does the Shorthand program work well? I don'the know - Posted By: marymary

anything about it but I just started a new job with Meditech and there is no associated program for AutoCorrect or macros. They suggested we d/l the ShortHand program which I did d/l the free 30 day trial. I haven't used it yet but I really miss macros and shortcuts...Will it be worth the $99.99 purchase price when my 30 days expires?  Thanks.

Opinions on Webmedx lack of work. - Posted By: Please

Have been there for 2 years now. The benefits, pay, etc., are enough to keep you hanging in, but their slow-downs have been consistent and becoming more and more frequent. The new accounts in the last conference call appear to have not materialized for the most part. Still a decent place to work, but a tenuous situation. My STM behaves as if this happens every year everywhere. We all know that is not true.

What is the average or going rate for MTs these days? - Posted By: Bit sad.

I've gotten a couple of offers for jobs.  The pay seems aweful low for someone with 3 years experience.  Yes, I know that is a lot less than some but I'm certainly no new graduate.  I've gotten offers for IC positions starting at 5 and 6 cpl for 65 character lines.  Today I got another for an IC position that pays 6.5 cpl for 65 character line without spaces. 

I may have to take one of these lower paying jobs until I can find better because my family needs the income.  Hopefully there is better out there... geeze.  Please, is this the 'going' rate for us now.  :(

Say WHAT???? No work during training?? - Posted By: 5 piddly jobs?

I am bringing this topic up from further down, as I cannot believe this, and its going to disappear by tomorrow to page 2.  I have also been recently hired by MDI-MD, and know of several other MQMTs, some of whom I think started this week, and THERE IS NO WORK during training?  We type 5 jobs and there is NO work?  I just bought a computer for NO WORK?  Please somebody tell me this is a joke or misunderstanding or something.  Its not right, but I could see it if we were working regular amounts, but 5 jobs a day and there isn't that much? I don't want to waste my time. That's awful.  What are we going to do when MDI-MD is it? The only income?  I am sick to my stomach over this.
