But you've already got me pegged as someone who "can't a joke and is plain crazy and mean to boot." (I do appreciate the "young" reference, though, since that's something I haven't heard in 30 years.)
Nobody can take a joke better than I can. I just didn't see one. All I saw was somebody trying to be witty and failing; trying to be mean and succeeding.
I'm certainly not mean, but you might want to consult a mirror in that regard.
But if I keep reading and responding to posts in this thread, I MUST be crazy, so keep basking in your bashing. I'm outta here.

I am not the only one. This is only the second time I have ever posted. sm
It may be that I used someone else's moniker, but when I worked for MQ, I used a different one. No matter what anyone has to say good about a company or bad, there are people on here that are so rude that no one can get a true picture of things.
I work on an account that uses ExText and I am very happy with the ease of use and speed of the program, as well as the line count. There are a lot of us on the account, at least 10 were on a conference call that I was on a few weeks back.
Keystrokes is much better for ME than MQ was. That is my personal opinion, and unfortunately, one that will probably be jumped on by some unhappy, miserable person here.
I'm sorry your experience was so bad. Yesterday was the 1st time I ever posted so you have no cl
who I am. Please folks, Amphion mgmt is the best. They have outstanding, professional, caring people who work very hard to keep their employees happy. I've been there almost 3 years and am more than happy. The benefits are tops in the industry. But they do require excellence and reward that amply. I won't be back here to dignify the unprofessionalism exhibited by some posters.
Second time this was posted and still have no idea what it means...
I posted after she quits giving her time to a non-
It's about time we see something positive posted about TT. I, for one, am sick
and tired of seeing them get bashed. Yes, work was low. Yes, I was scared. That doesn't make them public enemy #1 though. Thank you for your post.
Do they still exist? Haven't been posted about in a long time. nm
I saw this posted some time ago and thought then, hmmm, not a good idea
You were outraged and it was very apparent as you spoke then of they knew who you were and you really spoke your mind. I know we are supposed to have freedom of speech but having said this it was like you did not care if someone came after you and now, well seems like that has happened. I am not saying it is right but sometimes good to keep thoughts to yourself, especially now since you have heard from the state. You said you are flattered. I would never been flattered to have someone sue me. Seems like you bit off more than you can chew.
The Rates Are Posted Here and Posted Below
The service owner fees are posted in a UnionNow post (below), but here they are again:
SERVICE OWNERS CHARGE:
$0.115 - $0.25 per line for full transcription of acute care on 24/7 accounts
$2.75 - $7.65 per report for full transcription of pathology, lab, specialty operative notes, plain film and interventional radiology
$0.097 - $0.125 per line for VR editing
OF THAT MONEY, MTs ARE RECEIVING
$0.85 - $1.25 per report full transcription
$0.06 - $0.115 per line full transcription
$0.035 - $0.06 per line for VR editing
AS OUR PRODUCTION BRINGS THE MONEY IN, WE DESERVE A LARGER CHUNK OF THE PROFITS - OFFICE STAFF CAN BE TRIMMED INSTEAD OF THE PRODUCTION STAFF. IF A RECEPTIONIST MISSES A DAY OF WORK, ANYONE CAN ANSWER THE PHONE IN HER PLACE. IF AN MT NEEDS A DAY OR SO OFF, PATIENT CARE CAN SUFFER BECAUSE AN INTEGRAL MEMBER OF A HEALTH CARE TEAM IS UNAVAILABLE.
WE ARE STILL EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IN THE HEALTH CARE PICTURE. DO NOT SELL YOURSELVES SHORT.
IF YOU ARE AGAINST UNIONS OR INITIATIVES, I WHOLEHEARTEDLY RESPECT YOUR OPINION, BUT BEG THAT YOU RESEARCH, SPEAK TO OTHERS, EDUCATE YOURSELVES ABOUT WORKERS UNITED. WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE HERE; THEY'VE TAKEN ALMOST EVERYTHING FROM US.
$1.25 PER REPORT TRANSCRIBED IN THE U.S.A. BY A U.S. MTs
$0.10 PER LINE TRANSCRIBED IN THE U.S.A. BY A U.S. MTs
$0.075 PER VR LINE EDITED IN THE U.S.A. BY U.S. MTs
I'm lookin for part-time work (about 3-4 hrs daily) after 13 years of full-time, anyone know of a
company that is hiring flexible part-time? I'm starting a career in real estate but don't want to totally quit transcription, but I think most places require 25 hours a week and I cant work weekends, as real estate sales are the biggest on the weekend with open houses and people off work to shows homes to. If you know of a place I'd sure appreciate the info. Thanks!
MDI-Maryland is an excellent company, pay on time all the time, great line rate.
I left also because I went out and got my own client(s).
They are very nice people.
The only negative I can think of were the e-mails from the owner say work, work, work, we are out of TAT.
Other than that, which is very minor, it was a good experience.
Not what I was told; 3500/wk part-time & 6000 wk/full-time. nm
Precyse Solutions is hiring part-time and full-time right now.
Saw this on their website.
i work 3 part-time jobs now. it can be confusing if you are learning both at the same time, but sm
other than that not a problem for me. best to get one down before starting to other or you might become overwhelmed.
MDI-MD: What are daily line requirements for full-time/part-time? Thanks! nm
I have one full-time job and 2 part-time jobs. It can be tricky at times, sm
but at least I now have plenty of work always. I have some big financial goals, and right now that seems to be the only way to accomplish it. I can't see any reason why it would not be legal -- why would you say that? I am cheating no one, except myself (out of sleep and a social life). Fortunately, I am single with no children or anything. I cannot imagine doing this if I had a family. At least my dogige understands.
I've been there quite a while, pay on time, growth spurt right now, so good time to get on board,
new accounts and lots of work, and before someone says it, I'm not management, just an employee.
per his request I told him Time To Call, he called Not That Time, emailed me
Full time/part time based on # hours or
# lines per pay period, nothing to do with quality. The lower the quality the higher the pay it seems.
Solution: Find another job, part time or full time.
Post your resume, hope for the best.
Depends on how flexible you need to be and if full-time or part-time
They are a little more flexible if you are part-time. Not so much full-time, where you can be a little flexible within the day (not a strict 8-5), but if you are scheduled for Monday, you have to work Monday unless you request off, and if you are scheduled for a Holiday, you have to work the holiday, unless you request off. They encourage you to clock out every time you are not typing to keep your lph rate up, which means an 8 hour day can turn into 12 hours at the computer. If they run out of work (which they do quite often), you have to make the time up. They are also leaning more towards Voice Recognition, so MTs are getting trained on that, but not sure what percent will go that way. It does affect how much work you may get though in the other accounts.
They are advertising for full time HIM now, do they still hire part time? nm
It will get better, I hope. Too much time on my hands means too much time on ebay! lol nm
DVHP gives vacation time to part-time people. nm
Any companies out there where you do not have to fill in a time sheet or on a time clock?
I would like to do my lines and be done, and still get my benefits. Any companies out there that go by line production rather than hours to qualify for bennies?
OSi with part time health insurance and paid time off
OSi does offer health insurance and paid time off for part time. Yes, there have been changes. Yes, there will probably be more changes. I don't see anywhere that hasn't had changes. If they don't change they will be out of business the way the economy is these days, just like some other companies. If they don't make money, then I don't make money. So, what is so different with OSi compared to other companies? I see complaints constantly about all companies. I don't think it is the fault of the company that they outsource or use voice recognition. It just is life on life's terms these days. There is still enough work for us, at least for me.
My thoughts exactly, why waste my time when you know you are only hiring full time? nm
From time to time those paper checks aren't good!
This comes at the same time they are pushing this TAT time. I have no intention of sitting here on a
set schedule for no work. The only reason I get work now is working erratic hours when there is work so I think anyone that works for Amherst better put down on their time schedule they send in they will be working when there is work. The worst thing that can happen is you get canned for working different hours and if there is no work who cares. They surely dont care about SE do they. They just pull the rug out and expect all these people with second jobs to adjust and quite frankly a lot of them wont be able to so I think it tells you they probably dont care about those people. I think with ASR and EMR they figure they can just trim the work force and the first they dont care about are those with other jobs using this as a second income or spending money. Pretty obvious to me.
Its holiday time. I just took a part time job at K-Mart and
it is really quite fun because I get to interact with humans and do not have to stare at a computer. My part time benefits included an employee discount on merchandise from day 1 of employment, can put that on lay-away, and if the item goes on sale before you pick it up, you get it at the sale price as well as with the discount. This is a Super K-Mart, and with kids this will really help with paying for their presents. It sure beats running out of work every day and wondering if I am going to have any money for gifts.
Ugh - well I did all my work on time and I expect to be paid on time.
The phone company doesn't wait, the cable company doesn't wait, and the electric company doesn't wait for their money either - all of which I need to pay in order to do my job. I work when I am supposed to, I help when behind, and give 110%, and I ask for my check to be on time.
I think if an MTSO is going to have to mail checks they should do so priority to make up for the delay.
Full time but no work half the time-nm
okay to yell the first time but not correct etiquette the second time?
Question on MDI-MT full time vs. part time
Does anyone know how many lines per week or per pay period are required at MDI-MT to be considered full time? Thanks.
No, not a time clock. You just fill out a time sheet sm
with your days and times and lines and email it every 2 weeks.
It really seems to be a great place to work so far -- the people are great and the work has not run out. I have been paid more, but then again, I am an employee and have benefits and do not have to mess with that tax hassle anymore, so I'm happy.
Good luck in whatever you decide.
Part-time MT getting full-time work ??????
TransTech should not be giving out work to PT people on their DAY OFF, or any other time BEFORE a full-time MT has enough work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Full time is 40 hours, and yes they have part-time.
OSi pays on time every time exactly what was quoted on job offer.
Someone is getting really confused here. OSi does pay on time. Pay has always been in accordance to my time sheet that I fill out. If OSi pays only if their accounts pay them, then I must be on one good account that always pays. This is not in any fine print of any papers I have received.
TRUST me when I say...It is not worth your time, even part-time..
I hired on with them part-time on or about September 8, kept getting run around as to when I was to actually start transcribing. Team lead emailed to say she had a very very good account for me to start on. I was trained 25 minutes. Then, there was an issue with my ID and password to get into the system. After about 2 weeks, got ID and password, but it didn't work. Then I get an email from another supervisor advising that I would be on another account and they seen the specs. So, I get an email some time around the first of October saying I can start typing. In the meantime, Focus has a MT Forum, and I'm reading all these negative remarks from the MTs stating a lack of communication company wide, to the terrible QA department being not all on the same page, and being deducted points for blanks and such. By this time, I was exhausted from waiting, and exhausted from hearing all the complaints from the MTs actually working there, that I sent an email to team lead saying, I had changed my mind about working there. This is the most chaotic, disorganized, miscommunicated place I have ever seen in my entire 32 years of being an MT. (If there are any errors in this forgive me. Don't feel like proofing this)
They posted everything else, why not the....
unfortunately, whenever a job is posted - sm
no matter what is specified for requirements for the job, you would be surprised just how many people will send a resume. With all the jobs I have posted, I make sure I put the necessary requirements, i.e. foreign language requirement, absolutely no offshore companies, etc., and I STILL GET 100+ emails from people that have no idea what transcription is (yes, they actually put that down), Indian and Phillipine companies emailing, as well as the countless number of people that do not even remotely meet the requirements. I have even had some with gross misspellings!!! Can you believe that?
I hope this isn't harsh, but it can be quite frustrating just weeding through the resumes to find the ones that actually fit the bill.
It wouldn't surprise me that you have not heard from them yet - they are probably still weeding through the resumes. If you are qualified, then hang in there, I'm sure they will contact you.
I posted asking about....sm
The computers companies provide, whether they were crap or not and that appears to be gone as well. I did not identify a specific employer or anything. Having a failing computer and job hunting currently, I just wondered what you'd get but someone posted that it made sense for the company to send you a decent system so they could keep you working. I could see her point....a perspective I had not looked at.
I know they posted an ad
I believe I would write to them and ask, or call if they have an 800 number to find out if they want IC or employee MTs. Don't know if they offer insurance or not.
I have posted before on this co. sm
The staff is great..really nice people..they paid me my s/o bonus even after I quit before my 60 days which I thought was great..however, if you do not like MedType or MedRite..forget it. Hey, when I got the 6 huge binders of paperwork with my PC..I knew I was in for trouble. It doesn't have to be that hard.
It was posted here before but...
it seems like MDI wants no backlog whatsoever. I mean, even if there are only 20 jobs in the system, they're zipping out E-mails that we need to wipe them out ASAP. I don't get it.
That was already posted below, but
is wrong. sm means see message. People put sm and then say long message. Sm does not mean small message.
just posted Jan 6
I just asked some questions about Transolutions on 1/6. There have been recent changes that affect pay and I am wondering if others are frustrated and worried as I am. I have been an MT for lotsa years and now feel like my QA has fallen drastically because of new higher standards, which have not been consistent either. Plus, you have to be very careful how many reports you put on hold, no matter the reason.
She posted above that she does NOT
YOU might want to take time to read this person's posts before you come to this board offering instructions to me. She may not work in her living room, maybe she works in her bedroom....but she does not work in the KS office.
Since she's already posted her name..
I can tell you that CW has been one of the strongest anti-offshoring activitists in the business. She wrote a long letter on the subject to the Atlanta Journal and I think even went to see the gov. of Ga. personally concerning the matter. She has urged her fellow MTs to get active in writing their state politicians about this issue. So if she's having to admit defeat, she didn't go down without a fight. Just thought I'd pass this on FYI.
that was posted
She posted her name. What else was I
Puts her name out there and then is upset by someone calling her by HER OWN NAME!!! ROFL
Yes, to whoever posted it. nm
