MDI Maryland -- Bonuses? - Posted By: wonderin'

It was my understanding that MDI does not have production incentives or bonuses. However, when I looked at their website it says this:

. . . And we show it to you through appreciation, excellent pay, bonuses and, more importantly, respect for your work.

Does any MDI MT have any info concerning the bonuses? I would appreciate it.

I find this job posting telling to say the least? sm - Posted By: radee

RE: the job posting looking for a person in-house, among other things, to answer 150-200 emails a day to fill in blanks. I know my job and English is my first language, so I don't have to leave blanks. I will not work for 8 cents or less per line either. You get what you pay for, I guess. Guess it comes down to the almighty dollar.

Worn out! - Posted By: MDIer

I have run out of steam! I have sent resumes and tested until I go to bed at night with an 800 mg ibuprofen headache. These companies are probably getting hundreds of applications every day and most likely will never reply. Each company I have taken a close look at off shores to some extent. The ones who do not at this time could sell their business in the future to one who does. This may just be a hard reality we may have to choke down, if we still want to work in this profession. My work today at MDI (or are we Transcend now since it is 09/01) is pretty good. I see here on the board that some are saying the same thing. As much as I will probably get bashed for saying this, I am going to wait and see what happens with Transcend. Maybe they are not going to be MDI to work for, but then again, who will be? No one that I can see so far having been out there looking now for days on end. Before I cut and run, even if I had a place to run to, I am going to stop, take a deep breath and have some faith that this may work out. It sure beats the anxiety and insomnia that I am dealing with now. And, now I know I will be tarred and feathered for this post, so let me have it while you have the chance! LOL!

Diskriter Timekeeping - Posted By: Wondering

Can anyone who works for (or has worked for) Diskriter tell me if you have to clock in/out or if you have a window of time to do your work? I know they require a minimum number of lines per shift, but are you required to work a specific number of hours as well?

Thanks for your help.

One request, please -- all you Transtech cheerleaders go to your Yahoo board - Posted By: TT MTer

Why are you showing up here tonight.  GO where you belong!

Most of the positive posts about TT and VR are mgmt posts;  they always do this, but you other cheerleaders/favorites, go to your new Yahoo Board and leave us along who don't want to work for LESS MONEY.

By the way, I have done VR with TT and HORRIBLE.  I can't make even close to the money I can with normal transcription. 

VR is more money in the pockets of TT execs.  Not in the MT's wallets.

Spheris low work load - Posted By: BLUEYES

Thought I would respond to the post about Spheris at the top as soon we would be booted off the page.  Yes Healthscribe did outsource to India all along.  As a matter of fact they were very proud of that fact.  They did not send all of the work over there and seemed to keep plenty for their US MTs, however, that is exactly why Spheris took over Healthscribe is because of the India link.  That is the main reason they bought Healthscribe, which is exactly why they are letting all the good MTs go and not paying them, etc.  They want them to quit.  Cheaper than paying unemployment when they eventually let them all go as all they ever wanted out of that deal was the link they had to India and India employees.  That is no secret and is exactly why they are all being nudged out of work.  The work is there.  Your work is there, it is just being sent elsewhere and where as it should be illegal, well it is not.  It is just morally wrong and not very American but I think those types of things such as morals and being proud to be an American get thrown out the window when these companies see $ in their pockets.  Good old fashioned American pride is not important to these people anymore and thus the results we are seeing.  It will be lost for our children and even worse for our children's children.  That is why it is so important for us to stop going to hospitals or write to our hospitals that outsource and to get everyone you know to do it as well and make a big stink.  That is why it is important for every American MT to rebel and not work for these companies, for their slave wage, etc.  They will always need some American MT for that one account who does not want their work overseas and I know Spheris has a few of them, and if they cannot get an American MT to work for them, well, ....I guess they loose that account eventually, and as they get more that want their work brought back to the U.S. and they have no MTs from the U.S. to provide that to them, they lose another account and so on.  Eventually the work will get sent to the companies who do promote strictly U.S. work, where it belongs, and the goal of being the largest company, which is what Spheris is striving to be will slowly start to shrink and then American people, we have one.  Give that some thought!!

Can your report a recruiter? - Posted By: Sadmt

I was offered 7.5 cpl from a recruiter.  If you look a little further down the page you can figure out which company this is.  I told the recruiter I had 3 years of experience and was an Andrews school graduate and could not accept 7.5 cpl.  The recruiter emailed me back the following response:


Wow with only 3 years experience you are making .09 cpl?  That is great.  If you want to produce your last two pay stubs and if you can achieve our line requirement and accuracy we can match your .09 cpl.    You would still have to start out at the rate I quoted you and achieve these requirements within 90 days.

I faxed my last 3 check stubs to the recruiter to prove and call her bluff and she now tells me she cannot offer me the job at 9 cpl.  She now has my check stubs and I want to report her.

Thanks for any help,

What to expect at interview? - Posted By: Anxiety-stricken MT

I know this is inane, but how do companies conduct interviews?  Will I be quizzed on terminology and such? Ive been doing transcription for 6+ years and am comfortable with my ability/knowledge but have terrible anxiety and freeze under pressure, or worse, turn into a babbling, stammering idiot.  (I should have taken more public speaking classes in school or Paxil maybe LOL!)  I have an interview today and would like to prepare myself if Ill be subject to a barrage of questions. Perhaps I should stop drinking coffee....

D&L Typing Service--Trouble with Pay? - Posted By: twina_bii

Is anyone else besides me being given the runaround about being paid, i.e., when payroll ends, when payday is, and when checks are mailed, etc. from this company?  I was told paychecks are to be mailed on one day, only to be told they were mailed out the next day, and have not been paid and do not believe they ever mailed a check to begin with.  Please say it ain't so.

New OSI policies - Posted By: NO WAY JOSE

Now in order to be paid for holidays you have to have at least 98% QA score for the previous 6 months.  I understand how quality counts but if you are counted off for any moronic thing which is usually the case because there is no consistency whatsoever with OSi QA dept. you will not be paid for holidays within 6 month period. You must also meet minimum line requirements and it doesn't matter if there is no work, low work or PTO.  I cannot believe that if there is no work prior to a holiday you won't be paid for the holiday.  Just another way to rip off the MTs who are the bread to the butter of this company. Fortunately I have never had a QA problem but I have run out of work on more than one account.  This is one more reason I have decided to give OSI a big kick in the behind, BYE BYE OSI.  GOOD GRIEF!
