They used to pay a low per-page rate & the subsequent partial pages

Wow! This means 19 pages in 1 hour! One page has 40 lines.
This I will n e v e r , e v e r believe, only if I see it with my very own 2 blue eyes!
Yeah, I agree with the other posters. Ten pages is overkill. I think even with one page that would
get a feel for your skills and experience. No one can hide inexperience or inability to do the work. There is NO WAY I'd ever do a 10-page report without being paid. They are ridiculous. I'd be curious to see if anyone actually falls for this tactic. I saw that they give their ICs 5 days turnaround time so I'd say if they had several MTs testing, they should easily make their quota for their clients. UNREAL!!!
I looked thru 2 pages and couldn't find anything.
I thought it was deleted as can happen here!
This was discussed recently. Try a search or just read back thru all the pages to find. nm
There were pages of VERY negative posts about them, in the high teen-20s pages on
Do they give psychological tests also to allow you to work for them for free? It's
Couple of posts here on page 11 near the top and then back during the summer, you should find a
C'mon, give us a clue. Where is this, how did you find it, IC or employee? nm
Give TT some time to see if they can find cheaper plans
I also am greatly upset by the insurance hike, but I have decided to give them some time to see if they can come up with something more affordable. Like many of you, I have to insure my whole family, so this increase is astronomical.
The grass is not always greener. Changing jobs means switching out problems, and yes, some problems are easier to deal with than others. My last job (Amphion), I was so stressed out, I lost a lot of quality of life. I have young children. I can't afford to be a stressed out freak just like I can't afford the expensive health insurance. When I moved to TT, I regained my quality of life. I'm not so tired anymore, and I'm able to be a better mom. That means the world to me. I'll hang in patiently to see if another option can be found for the health insurance.
Does anyone find it interesting how companies want ICs and then give you the schedule you are to
work. I thought by law you are not allowed to set a schedule for an IC. Seems to me they are getting the best of both worlds for a whole lot less because of benefits they are getting out of paying and all the things the government requires.
Slow, does not give line counts, if you accidently send on before done, have to find TL to
Free enterprise. You are free to re-educate and retrain, as well!!!!
What's the complaint?!
I can't give you the name of the message board, but it is not a free message board (HINT). There
Monitor, I hope this post is okay.
The work load will not increase, in fact it has been going down steadily the last 6 months and they are loosing more accounts. I have been using the editing software for some time now and I can assure you that without work being there it is impossible to make double line count and the editing is not that much quicker than transcribing. I say lets cut the pay of the big wigs instead of always trying to cut it at out level!
That's bull that HR has nothing to do with it. sm
On our quarterly updates from MetLife, the name printed on them as our contact is the HR director! It always has been that way, regardless of who the plan holder was. Payroll is the last person I want handling the 401k, and she's never been the contact for that. HR is a complete mess, they've been through SO MANY different HR directors in the years I've been with MW.
My credit is NO ONE's business. How I handle my credit is no concern of any company I work for.
I have worked on Escription and other VR platforms...it is total bull that you can double, much less triple your line count. I will never do VR again. I'm sorry but MDI might have BEEN a good place to work for but if they are going to be paying $.03 per line for VR they are NO LONGER a good place to work for. I'd be polishing my resume.
she could get everything she wants at MQ. I also have 30 yr experience and i am happy there!
Sorry but that is a bunch of bull. SM
How did you get on this earth? Were you not someone's child?
Your comments are totally ridculous, rude and disrespectful.
Bull! How can they enforce that?..sm
How can they stop MTs from contacting each other, e-mailig, or otherwise corresponding with each other on our own time? What country do they think we live in? Whom I contact, e-mail, etc., on my own time is my own business.
Do you remember the bull about their new
end up 'earning more' than we did when they took over? I don't want to share any margaritas with their QAs, either. Those people are for the most part half a crayon short of totally illiterate.
Not at all. Worked for the NJ company. Used to pay by the page or partial page. Don't know about
Some comments on page 2 of this board, middle of the page. nm
That's bull...sorry..but I'm team lead and
spread it elsewhere
I agree - bull crap.
Know what I have taken to do, I email saying May I ask before proceeding to resume, testing etc,
What is the lowest to the highest line rate offered for the position, are spaces paid and is the position for VR. I feel this saves valuable time on both sides don't you? Thanks etc.
They do respond most of them.
Sounds like a load of bull to me. Some companies have old
reports that you can look up in their system. My company has samples from various docs posted in a database, other companies will fax/e-mail you samples. I find it hard to believe that all those companies are in violation of privacy issues.
Bull honkey. Half the mad posters are the ones that don't like negative
They get just as nasty and rude telling the people to stop posting negative comments.
Thats bull. I was told $2000 was tops a month. nm
They even have a school for MTs, "to help better the, I can't remember theincreasing bull...
They sent out a letter like they were philanthropists, bettering the (I can't remember what they said, it was such a joke). Great tax break for them having an office or school over there, don't believe the lies they use to excuse their behavior. You cannot make any money with these religious, I am all for humanity bull.
there is a thread further down this page or possibly the next page
I transcribed for Compuscribe years ago. Had no problems, just low pay but no problems.
Go to the bottom of the page and click on a page
number to get the most recent archives and then can do Ctrl F and do a search for WebMedX. I wouldn't call them a small national.
Page 2, scroll down towards the middle of the page, NM
Free sure. There are free on-line fax
services, in fact I used one last week. Most do have limits on how often you can use and how many pages though. You obviously would have to scan pages into a document, but maybe she doesn't have a scanner either.
She could have mailed paperwork back.
Will we be able to see all the pages?
Cannot go to the 2nd page now.
well done! this could go 10 pages, lol.
they only had 100 pages to type!
I already have a job. If I were trying to nab a full time job, I would have been more careful, but the woman told me she needed someone to help out ASAP, like this afternoon.... so I squeezed in the typing test during my regular work. She needs help with 100 reports and then bye bye, so I really didn't think spongebob would make a difference to her.
Look on pages 9, 10, 11 of the archives,
there's more info there too.
Yep saw that. They think 10-15 pages an hour.?? sm
This is to coincide with their proposed hourly pay. They get their calculators out and think HEY this sounds good.
They have absolutely no IDEA how long a page takes and what expertise is involved. $1.10 a page. They equate women with typing and this shows value (under-valued, second class, purchased commodity.
Look through the yellow pages of your local
phone book and call agents that offer health insurance. Make several calls. I did this when we needed private insurance and each call I made I got a lower premium, although every company had the very same insurance. Celtic is what we found to be the lowest. We no longer have this insurance as we have insurance through DH job, but we had no existing conditions, no regular meds, nonsmokers, so I'm not sure if these were covered. I'd keep calling about COBRA. The company has to offer it. If you go 45 days without insurance and have a pre-existing condition you are in trouble, unless things have changed since we got insurance. There is a temporary insurance through Fortis that is very cheap, but the deductible is very high and it doesn't cover pre-existing conditions.
I'd stay away from the association for the self-employed or whatever it is called. When I called them their rates were double what I could get a private policy for and it was the same insurance.
Go thru the last 4 pages here. They have been discussed recently. nm
Any way you can search recent pages w/o having to go to each one
Scroll down a couple pages (sm)
There are a few posts about them, nothing good that I saw. I do remember complaints about not enough work and the owner needing to sharpen up on his communication and people skills.
What? There are a ton of TT MTs posting here. Scroll through the last few pages.
I would estimate that 95% of what you see posted here about TT is positive.
I agree 10 pages to long sm
A while back I applied with a co who sent me a 45 min test file. I did 20 minutes of the file and sent it back. I explained that I felt 45 minutes was excessive. They asked me to work for them. So you never know.
That being said, I saw WPU's ad and $1.25 per page is low. If you haven't done it before, you'll make less than $10 an hour to start. If you're decent and can do 10 pages in an hour, you'll make 12.50 an hour. If you're really good and can do 20 pages in an hour, then you're still only making $25 an hour - for being really good - and that's low in my book. IMO
then why is it not posted on financial web pages?
No info from Forbes, Reuters...
or as soon as you memorize all of those pages on that account
they change your account again.
Job bank used to have 3 or more pages of jobs.
I do not believe this: This means that you read 11 pages
in half an hour?
One page has 40 lines.
This is a ridiculous statement.
I bet you cannot even read that fast WITHOUT having to make corrections!!!
It is good to be pro-VR, but don't push it with such hilarious pretenses.
you better check this board, all the pages...
someone posted what they pay, what it was like to work there, etc. do your homework. look b4 you leap.
