Don't QA's get paid hourly at MQ? Why abandon jobs?
Actually some in-house jobs at hospitals (Kaiser,
I think it's something along the lines of United Healthcare Workers, or ?
hourly editor jobs
Hello, I posted this question a month ago, but didn't get a chance to follow up on the leads that were posted. Would you be so kind again and let me know if you know of any companies that pay their editors by the hour, that would be great, Thanks.
Hourly Paying Jobs
Can someone tell me if they know any companies that pay hourly to work from home? If someone knows any names of companies that pay hourly, please let me know.
Thank you for your help in advance
MT hourly rate jobs...sm
Are there any companies that pay hourly for straight transcription?
This site USED to post in house hospital jobs - sm
And this is just MY opinion, but I think what probably happened is that the hospitals were probably getting bombarded with every MTSO service contacting them, and individuals contacting them about outsourcing their work, and it probably became too much for them. An acquaitance mentioned one time that she had advertised on this board for on site and specified that it was on site, along with very specific job specifications, and apparently it didn't matter - everybody and their brother applied for the job, including waitresses and nannies who had never even had one iota of medical terminology, let alone job experience.
That's just my 2 cents
Are there any hourly jobs for very experienced acute

No more production work for me; I can't stand the stress of lack of work, irregular schedules and broken promises. If I can do all work types and am very good with ESL's, are there any hourly trainer/ QA, etc. jobs out there (in general)?
Cherrypicking is when you work from a pool of jobs and being able to reject the worst jobs to those
Monster Jobs and Career Builder usually have a few path jobs. nm
They didn't take our jobs, QT gave them our jobs. The account is now
back in the hands of US MTs, or will be in just a couple of weeks.
You can only access the Jobs Board on MTDaily w/o paid membership. nm
Are MTs that are looking for jobs finding good jobs right now with everyone looking or is it
getting more difficult to find a good job. I am most interested in jobs for experienced MTs with more than 10 years service. I wonder if it is better to put a resume on or just keeping applying or what is the best way to go about this.
Look at all the jobs on the jobs boards.
You can find a job and won't have to apply for unemployment. You would be surprised how many companies need qualified MTs! Go get 'em and get 'em now!
Don't wait until the 11th hour. Too many needs to put your hat in the unemployment slot.
What they lost is our gain.
When I worked in-house I was paid by the hour....
only had to maintain 135 lph...but I never heard of anyone who was reprimanded for not maintaining that. The nice thing was the hourly pay (between $13 and $17 an hour) whether there was work or not, PTO, etc. Had work 98% of the time and if not we could go down to medical records and help out or go home early.
I was a QA that got paid hourly...sm
so it's more difficult to find another job for me that pays the same. :( If I go back to MTing, I take a massive pay cut.
I am paid hourly.
I have been extremely fortunate to be hourly in both my past and current QA positions, making $18 5 years ago at my prior position and considerably more at this one (not comfortable saying how much, that's my business). My position incorporates more than just QA/Editing reports and I don't have to edit VR and my company does not outsource. I am not exactly sure what my per-line rate factors out to, but I have a high production rate along with my other duties and have been working with some of the same accounts for many, many years and know them well and our MT turnover rate is low also. I have the luxury to take the extra time with those who need it and to just spot edit/fill in blanks on those that don't need the extra help.
Honestly, I had no idea QA were being paid so low until I came across this website a couple months ago. I have had the good fortune to work for two great companies and never had the desire to look elsewhere and see what other companies were offering. I do think more people need to be paid what they are worth, but as long as someone else is willing to be paid less there is just going to be a low 'going rate.' Supply and demand and all that. It is like that in most jobs. Each person has to consider their own needs and compromises, etc. What sounds ridiculously low to some might seem like a great wage when factored into the trade-offs and benefits etc. My husband is union and sometimes has to deal with 'scab' labor. The reality is someone will work for that pay if you will not. There are great companies out there who truly value their QA staff and their MTs and it's a shame to think they are a dying breed.
All QA should be paid hourly.
Paying per line for QA is skimping on quality and a big risk. QA people will spend less time on the reports in an effort to make decent money, and that's a fact. It's a very stupid and risky practice and most better companies will not do this. As for QA people actually taking that pay, that's even worse. There are plenty of respectable companies still paying hourly.
QA paid hourly
Agree with that! I for one would never work on production. This definitely compromises quality just to get the lines out, and I will never do that. And... whose gonna check behind those QA people. Nobody! QA is supposed to check behind MTs. Put QAs on production and you may as well not have QA , and just let the MTs send work as is, have the MT never learn, and then have them pass that incorrect knowledge down to future MTs, and then what do you have? Well... maybe they'll figure it out one day. I don't always agree with what is going on with the company I work for; but... I can say that they have not gone to a line rate for QAs. I would say thats a pretty good indication of their views on quality accounting for something.
QA SHOULD be paid hourly - sm
Otherwise what's to stop them from doing bogus *corrections* in order to get more money.
Being Paid Hourly - QA sm
Suppose you're hired for a QA position at $14.00 an hour as an independent contractor and you work an 8-hour shift on a daily basis. Are you guaranteed to be for the 8-hour shift even if there is no work available?
What about the same thing as above, but only hired as an employee. Would you be guaranteed to be paid for the 8-hour shift whether there was any work or not?
Newbie or not, QA should be paid hourly only. NM
One quesion - were you getting paid hourly? ; )
Paid hourly training SM
Anyone can tell me what companies pay at least minimum hourly wage during training? I don 't mind line rate pay during this time, but I heard many of them will only let you do several reports a day during training and pay by the line, all along the work you do learning their software and platform, phone calls, conference calls, etc. is per g-r-a-t-i-s. Anyone?
I understood her to mean she was paid hourly plus
At WMX you are paid the hourly equivalent of your sm
production rate. If you are making $20 an hour (averaged) on production, that's what you make when you take PTO or holiday pay.
Yes, I currently work 3 jobs; 2 are national (both suck); pay okay and am an employee and the other one smaller company am an IC (are very nice) but pay a little less. Going crazy because they overhire (the 2 national companies).
4 jobs here
MT Professional with 5 years experience.Looking for clinicial or Independent Doc MT work I can handle anytype of account.
no new jobs
Yes, I get that message a lot and I have three accounts. I have only been there a month now and I am waiting to see if it is going to change.
There are jobs for us
I went to the jobseeking site on this board and have now received 3 offers. I would like to make the moderator for this message board. This board has let us be heard. As a result of being heard, we are considered for jobs first because of our special situation. To every Heartlander, look on the jobseeking site of this board and good luck.
I consider 7 cents per line an insult. They can get the offshore people instead.
but i have 3 jobs to do it :(
has anyone ever tried 2 new jobs
at the same time, and if so, how was it. I am thinking of letting go of my current job to try 2 parttime jobs to see which would lead to a better fulltime job. Whew... thanks!
2 jobs . .
Most transcriptionists have more than one job, it allows for backup when one runs low. It's not real hard to do, except I did try to learn two new jobs at one time and that was tough. Would start out with one and then the other. It was pretty stressful for a while.
Is more then just the MT jobs.
Most technical services are over seas too. Dell is the worst.. They don't even speak English... Time for the American People to step up to the plate and DEMAND their medical records stay in the States.. I do that when I go to the doctor and hospital.
Log of Jobs
I had to keep a log with companies I worked for that were responsible for the demographics, just to cover my backside. If you don't it's the client's word against yours if the wrong info gets entered. If you want names just e-mail me.
Why do you say that? There are other jobs.
TT, 3 jobs?
I have just started on a hospital account. Not the best hours, have to work the major holidays, and miss things etc. Have my original job, does not pay well. Starting on another service to try it out. Now, considering TT. I was thinking with all the raves about TT, I would make that my main job (working 3rd shift) so I can do things with my family and during the holidays which I could not do with the hospital. I don't know what to do now that I hear TT might not have work for me as I need to support my family (I would take 3rd shift). I am curious as to comments. The other service job I am trying out I hear has great benefits but inflexible. Gave me the schedule I want but will be demanding in that they check line counts daily. I know this is confusing, but trying to sort out. TTers should I take the job and dump the hospital so I can enjoy the holidays and keep another job on the side? Or keep the hospital and forget any flexibility. Any comments appreciated. Thanks
Have you just been applying recently? This is the slowest time for transcription, and a lot of companies might not be hiring at the moment because of work shortages. Keep in touch with them on an occasional basis. Regarding the comments about Amphion, I can't agree. I do a wide variety of transcription with them, some clinical, much acute care, and much surgical. The secret for me was to be willing to transcribe multiple accounts and all specialities. It's a great company to work for, and I'd recommend them. Good luck in your job search!
It's not just our jobs...
I saw on the news that there are web sites where you can assign tasks for people in India and Korea to do your web searches for just one dollar a day. One lady pays $30.00 per month and she has this task person look up whether she can buy a certain color shoes at a certain store. She's a marketing executive with just not enough time on her hands to complete all of her tasks, so she pays. Of course now it is even more advertised since it was on the news. They even showed a foreign person with a headset smiling and just ready to perform all of your tasks that you cannot get done. Can you imagine? So, it is not just transcription, it is everything.
OPs only jobs
Anyone know who hires for operative reports only, IC or otherwise. I'm looking for a job where I can do strictly that one worktype. I have 18 years experience doing OPs. Any companies out there any more who hire for just OPs that you know of?
That is, what, 3 jobs a day. Used to get more than
I only take jobs that (sm)
have flexible scheduling, i.e., 24 TAT instead of set hours. I manage to transcribe for 2 separate companies that way.
I work two jobs because I have to. The main company that I work for perpetually plays games, sending work offsite, and leaving American workers in the lurch. There has been very little work all week; management claims that they have no idea what is going on, but they always say that even when they do know what is going on; many of us can't even make enough money right now to qualify for benefits.
Because of this, I run the two jobs simultaneously, so that I can switch back and forth; although there isn't much switching lately, most of my work is coming from my second, part-time job. We just have to do what we can to survive when these companies are screwing us over in favor of offshoring.
i have had IC jobs...sm
where I didn't have to send in invoices.
I saw one on MT jobs just recently. Did you look there?
I currently have 3 jobs, so I am right there with ya. sm
The result is working every day, no full day off, but it does provide security and benefits, and right now it is worth it to me. I am planning a trip to Egypt and Israel in late April next year, so I have some incentive to keep going.
KNR (K&R) Consulting was actively recruiting for a couple of months here for their new VA accounts they had landed. I was on their list but found something else while they were gearing up and ended up passing.
Was anyone on this forum successfully recruited for these accounts and, if so, have you started working yet and how are you liking it?
I came across their old emails and realized I'd seen absolutely nothing posted here and couldn't help but wonder whatever happened...
TIA to anyone with info!!!
IC Jobs SM
There are tons of IC jobs posted on mtjobs.com
are there still jobs to get?
I feel like I've sent in at least this number of applications/resumes, as well. Will we get jobs? I have worked for over 15 years in lots of MT areas. I have left messages with recruiters who don't call back. Why do they even advertise? What should our timeline be, if we have passed the tests? Really? I have talked to a number of MT's who have told me with my experience that I should have no trouble. But, I'm still not getting calls or even nos. Do they just end up calling you out of the blue?
