When you paste a resume on the Job Seekers
or does it print correctly on the recruiter's side? 
Posted on wrong board. Plz see Seekers board.
If you fax a resume and/or test files do you follow with an email the next day?

Just curious what others do.

Try the Job Seekers board. Many of them sm
indicate that they hire US MTs only.
It looks like on the Job Seekers' board that most
I wonder how many of those clicks results in resumes. Seems like all the companies would be getting inundated with applicants right now.
If you look at the Job Seekers board you will see
your questions.  Also Transcription Relief Services is another company that is always looking. 
See the Job Seekers board, please. (SM)
The job advertisements are very descriptive. You should be able to discern easily who has insurance and who doesn't.

The Company board is for asking about specific companies.

Do you mean the Job Seekers board?
I count 23 job postings in the last week, so I would say it's far from dried up.
MD-IT has an ad on the Job Seekers board that says

Keystrokes has an ad for a pathology transcriber on the job seekers board. sm
Is Pathology easy to do? I have 8 years in acute care but have never done pathology or radiology and might be interested in a change.
What does "DOE" mean on the job seekers board for the rate to be paid?

None of the ones on the Job Seekers board send work outside the country. They

Anyone have any info on MT Professional listed on Seekers board? nm
I'm surprised the Moderator permitted this on Job Seekers Board..nm

Naturally, the new hirees will be gooing and gushing all over this board again about how GREAT their accounts are and how  EASY their dictators are.

hi karen, i sent out a resume and got a response, but not working for them yet. ad on job board. nm
Do you follow along with the mouse? I follow allow with my right arrow, the cursor going over the
words...I mean what do you do with the mouse exactly? I know that is a weird question, but I am still not getting it...haha! It could be a difference in platforms for sure,because my mouse is completely worthless to me in VR. I used EXText.
How long does it take TransHealth to get back to someone when you send a resume? I sent a resume
Has anyone gotten a job from any company not posting regularly from their resume in the resume
I think that many job seekers

view the insurance provided and premium rate to be quite, quite high on the list of important information needed, so I do not think this is a bash post.  It seems the uncertainty about insurance with this particular entity has been questioned several times over the last month or so, therefore it is a valid topic for discussion.  Thanks for management coming on and providing specific information.



There is a posting on the Job seekers...

board for Hanover PA that mentions a Pennsylvania board.  Does anyone know where I would find this?  Thanks!

Try Diskriter, add on Job Seekers
I work as a hospital employee through Diskriter and the benefits are very affordable.  They are advertising for a Florida hospital.  I don't work for this particular hospital, but in general I am sure the benefits are better and more affordable than any national company.  I think there are only certains states that they can hire employees from, so you will have to check on that.  I have love my job with DR as a hospital employee. I'm making more than I have ever made as an MT in 15 years.   You can find some more info in a thread towards the bottom of the page.  Don't let the negative posts discourage you.  The hiring process is a little more involved, but it is for a hospital employee position, which makes a big difference.     
Oh...the thing in Job Seekers...
Yeah, it seems odd that he doesn't mention pay.
Job Seekers/Job Bank
I never really noticed how many were coming on a daily basis before. They obviously haven't flocked to the other board. I think they have 7 postings for the whole month. Maybe companies just aren't hiring as much right now. I didn't notice the Job Bank before you said that. I never even think to look there. Maybe companies aren't thinking to post there, either.

Regretfully, we have had an incident where an unscrupulous offshore individual has placed an advertisement for employment, pretending to be an actual US-based company. Apparently, some have applied and even begun to work by this ad with an abrupt cancellation.

The owner of the actual company (US-based) has contacted us and is understandably upset.

We have removed the advertisement and placed a ban on this individual. Please, if you have responded to or are corresponding with anyone related to the ad, we advise you to stop.

The ad was posted on 10/03/08 by Timothy Olyphant and the subject was Seeking Contractors. This what the ad stated:

We are currently seeking contractors for Transcription Project. Audio is downloaded via FTP. Preferably, these contractors would work the morning shift clearing jobs as they come through the server. We are looking for contractors committed to do 5000 lines/day, Tuesday through Saturday. This contractor positions are available immediately. Interested contractors can send in the resumes/contractor profile to integritymedicaltranscription@yahoo.com. Please quote your rate per line.

Please note that this ad is a scam and the email address is not the actual address of the real US-based company.

We encourage you to contact the Administrator (admin@mtstars.com) or one of our Moderators (cher@mtstars.com, javabean@mtstars.com) with any complaints or suspicions you have about advertisements on MTStars' Job Seeker's Board.

It was constituted as a job wanted ad. Look on the Job Seekers
I think they do, but must follow

There were many reasons why it took longer than 8 hours to do 1150 lines.  One reason was because of the difficult dictators.  The US MTs get the majority of the bad dictators.  India gets many of the good accounts.  This is a fact!!  The other reason is because they have this little thing called OLC.  You see, they do not like anything to go to QA.  So they have you ask other MTs to pull the job # in to listen to your blanks for you to see if they can get it.  Not only is this extremely time consuming for the MT, but it is very time consuming for other MTs, thus making it difficult for everyone to get their line count in in 8 hours.  There was hardly anyone there that could do it consistently in 8 hours on a day to day basis.  There was also much referencing for doctors names and addresses that was very time consuming, and that you don't get paid for, but you could not leave it blank without searching like in three different places for it.  How time consuming is that....One would think a large company like that could come up with a better solution than that for their MTs. Maybe a better datatbase, do ya think??!!  There are very many reasons this company goes through MTs like they do.  Their turnover rate is VERY high.  I personally met my goals everyday.  Somedays it took longer than others, but the pay was not worth it.  Give yourself a raise!!!  My all time favorite.  Excuse me, but even MacDonald's gives raises to their employees for doing a good job, that little thing called RECOGNITION, and they don't expect them to sell more burgers to get it....Most companies base their raise on hard work, dependability, quality of work being done, and when a company has top notch employees that know their work and are doing a great job, and pays another person whom just started the same wage (whom quality or quantity is not there yet) that is just not fair.  Where is the incentive to be dependable, and to go out of your way to go that extra mile to make sure that job is done just precise.  Another thing about this company is that they expect you jump around on different accounts just about every day.  Emails that come through saying this account is out of turn and you need to pull so many jobs from this other account in.  Well, again, it is hard to get your line count in in 8 hours when you are jumping all over having to other accounts and having to read pages of account specifics before you can even get started.  They expect way too much for giving way toooo little.  Compensate fairly and one does not mind going that exta mile for a company who shows you they appreciate it.  If one does not mind working a ton of a hours for a low wage, then this company if for you.  I think it is just degrading for all MTs out there to have any one MT sacrifice their hard earned skills and work for a company who treats their workers in this way!!  We are skilled individuals and many work for less than what kids make at their part time jobs because they are willing to do it to stay at home and work.  We need to demand a wage that we are worth.  Afterall, most MTS either have schooling behind them or lots of years of experience.   Isn't that worth getting paid what you are worth??  Just because we stay at home should not mean we have to get paid peanuts.  What are you saving the employer, office space, equipment, electricity, and all the other things they must provide to have employees work in their office.  We save them that money.  So why should we get paid less!!  Quite the opposite, I think.  I certainly am not trying to keep anyone from getting a job.  The only thing I wish to gain is to see this industry take a turn and have us very skilled individuals who are important enough to come up with a document that could play a part in a person's life, be compensated fairly!!  Aren't we all worth that much!!??
Follow up - sm

I decided against Webmedx.  I passed the test and was offered a position but declined.  After studying the incentive program, I don't think I would be making any more than I do for Medquist.  The starting line rate was too low.  They try to push the incentive program, but it just doesn't seem that good.

So, I guess I'm sticking with MQ for now. 

I'm planning to get out of transcription.  I have tested and gotten offers from a few companies, but none of them seem vastly different than Medquist, unfortunately.  

I already have a few online businesses and hopefully will be able to work on them full time some time in the next year or 2.

My husband called the company in Oregon (there really is a legitimate company with that name). They said it is a scam, someone is using their identity to get people to open checking accounts. This scam is using the employee names and e-mail addresses but somehow it is routed to the scam artists. The legit company gave my husband the FBI information so he could report it.

today (saturday)I have had 106 lines ALL day and I'm 5 hours into my shift. that help any? seriously, you will NOT make ANY money here...keep looking! your best bet is steer clear of any service, get on directly with a dr.'s office or hospital, that's where any decent income is...
Anyone know any follow up...
on what happened to that transcription company or on the Pakistani girl doing the transcription?
Follow up with them....(sm)
I'd send a follow-up email or call. TT is definitely worth pursuing. They've been swamped lately with resumes and there's always the possibility they didn't receive yours for some reason.

IMHO, TT is right up there with the cream of the crop, so by all means follow-up on your resume.

I am going to follow through on TTS. sm
I think I emailed you, and if you don't respond, I completely understand. I am going to follow through with the labor board on this one. I saved every email and correspondence from them, so on that end I should be good. I'm sure the current TTS'er will go yelling up the ladder, but it really doesn't matter because I don't think this is something they can backtrack on. I'll keep y'all posted. If anyone wants to join in, feel free to contact me.
No follow-ups? Now I'm worried. How about this,
forget about the DEP question.  What is a good company to apply for SE/IC status, preferrably one who will supply the equipment needed - or not.
