Good last week - Slow this week.

In Reply to: Hopefully the dry spell is over. Seem to have plenty of work right now. (sm) - One of the webbies

I hope this is not an indication of things to come.  I am getting 1,200 lines a day but it is taking me all day to do it.  We seem to be out of work from 9-12 every day this week.  Hope things pick up after Labor Day.

sometime the week after the 4th is slow...
I know the beginning of the week was slow for me, but it is picking up. Hopefully it will get better.
Not slow for me, actually has been busier this week than
the past few weeks, have been getting all my lines in and all the extra that I have wanted.  
That's way high, it's been so slow, not many making $500 a week right now...
I am slow this week too...I am sure it will pick back up...
October is usually slow. This week is a Jewish holiday sm

I believe, Sukkoth.  Don't think the grass is greener anywhere.  The only thing that irks me about QT is someone saying they'll have work for me in 10 minutes, a half hour, or an hour, and nothing ever comes through.  My time is valuable to me.  Sitting around and waiting for nothing really, really irks me.  Other than that, I really love this company, and it would take something really serious, like them outsourcing or selling out to MQ, to get me to leave.  However, I'd really like it if they'd not leave me hanging for work when they say they're putting some in my queue.  Maybe I should send them a bill for waiting time.  MY TIME IS MONEY!! 

I work parttime as an IC for another national which really helps!  When one is slow, the other is busy.  Nice balance. 

Anyone else having a slow week? Thought it would pick up after Memorial. nm
My account has been slow this week due to an orthopedic conference...
but not completely out of work...ask your supervisor if you can have a backup account...there is plenty of work to be done..
Honestly, this past week it was been really slow..slim pickens and not sure why. That's the way i
goes in this business..It's either slow or you cant keep up.
Full time with Transtech is both. 40 hours per week and 5500 lines per week.
Nope .. email on 1/18 promised "within the next week." Here we are, 1 week later and no info.
The minimum is 5500 per week, NOT 6600 per week. I think you made a typo. :)
i clear over 800 a week, 40/week; 30+ year experience. (nm)
I get my paycheck every week - that is enough for me! Happy MT week everybody! nm
I got laid off for MT Week. Happy MT Week to me!
Thanks for a good laugh to end my week. sm

You have totally ruined any credibility you possibly started out having (thought it wasn't much with the way you were ranting on the first post) by all of the childishness. 

To respond to the just me comment, I think the just me is this person's way of saying just my opinion not that they have no self-worth.  And to that point, you have not once used your fname at all, just SM, which to most of us means see message.  Maybe it's your initials, who know, who cares really.

Yes, we all feel bad for your friend - but I don't know what's worse, being screwed out of $5 grand or having someone like you call me friend.

LOL!! DVD player for staying more than one week!!!GOOD Grief!!!
Must be really awful!!!
Scroll down a week or so. Tons of good stuff. Great company
Yes, pay on time. We give a 2-week schedule. Accounts pretty good

Got offered 1.5 cent/line this past week....she said her editors tell her they make good $$....
Not just this week, a long term problem. Nice people, good benefits, but
16 hours a week or 8 a week and get
401 K.
Why would anyone work 8 hours a week. The poster above said 16 or 24 hours a week.
MQ--week end pay

i think the NE is the only region that does not pay for week end and holiday pay. the Ohio office offers not only week end and holiday pay, but also shift differntial pay--and this is all without asking plus the MT's that were transferred there are getting all the lines they need and to top that off, they are in ONE acct, not like 4 or 5 in the NE


that is why it is a great office to be working with--

First week on DQS.. Please tell me it gets better. (sm)

It was only for half the payperiod, but WOW.  When I finally did a count to see how much I had done it was a real surprise.  I know I still have to look up instructions now and again and need to keep building my shortcuts, hope to heck I don't go bankrupt before I get it down to an art.

How long did it take the rest of you to get up to speed? 

About a week or two
I actually cannot remember but I think it was a week or two.....

This is the end of my first week
All kinds of problems, very discouraged, tech problems.
last week....
they stopped taking aps/resumes because they had a lot (mtjobs). now they are hiring again. i went ahead and applied but makes me wonder what they are really looking for because of the notice they had about not taking anymore, and then all of a sudden they are.
But they say they pay once a week.
Dont they?
More week this week than last week, which
suprised me.   I thought maybe some practices would have scaled back for Spring Break/Easter, but if they have, several MTs must have taken off too as we are nearly out of TAT and I have been doing an extra 600 lines a day. 
MT week
MT week is May 14-20
mt week
you can see what the MTs at Heartland got for Transcriptionist week!!
Like they would have done anything for us for MT week anyway. lol nm
MT Week
WebMedX sent candyjar filled with chocolate kisses and midge tootie rolls.  Quite cute!
What did you do for your MTs for MT Week?
Me 2 - per week,not every 2
800$ week??
Man, tell me which company I can make that much and I'll apply ASAP!!!! YEA RIGHT!!!!!
About a week
The offer letter was faxed the next day, as were initial startup paperwork. The foot pedal arrived in 2 days, I think. The software was installed by their IT department the next day. All in all, I think it only took about a week.

Welcome to Keystrokes!
About a week
I received the job offer, had to fill out/sign and fax back all of the paperwork that they e-mailed me, and then I had to wait for them to ship me my equipment. The whole process took a week, and then I started.
I'm going into my 3rd week
I like it.. some things are not the most convenient, but every company has quirks. I am not ready to go postal, so that is a good thing. :) We will wait and see what the paycheck looks like.
About a week but it took about
two weeks to get equipment, ID from hospital and then another week before training began.  But everyone has different experiences.  Good luck!
Also a week here
They contacted me the same day that I sent in my resume, and it took a week from that day to start.
It's the 3rd week in May
MT week
MDI/Transcend sent us all coffee mugs, thank you cards and a calendar, not to mention online Happy MT week
I bet if you offered to work Friday, Sat and Sun or Sat, Sun and Monday for 12 hour shifts, someone would allow you to work 3 days a week. Don't know of any offering 3 days say like Tues, Wed, Thurs or anything.
Took me about a week
I knew the platform and studied the specs before I began, so I was all set to go when I started. Familiarizing the different docs and places seemed to be my problem.
Don't you mean 12-hr 3 day per week? sm
I think those are higher paid positions for weekend coverage.
Been there less than a week and doing

800+ lines.  I use a C-phone and work in Word. 

They have lots of accounts with different platforms.  I suggest you call Lee and talk with her.  Maybe she can move you to a different account. 

Took me about a week to get off TT QA
They don't assign 1 QA to a new MT. I heard from at least 3 or 4 different QA people, maybe more. In my previous jobs I was assigned only 1 person who worked with me. It made it a lot more personal and I didn't get different opinions about the same thing. Like I said it took about a week at TT and I'm fairly new but I don't hear from anybody anymore. They do basically leave you alone to work which is good but they aren't that great in the communicating department.
Where is TT MT who was saying last week that TT
MT Week

Does your company give you anything for MT week?  If so, what?


HAPPY MEDICAL Transcriptionist WEEK
