I am not qualified to

In Reply to: How much pay for a good MT? - Marjory

set a rate of pay for an MT who does try to do the job properly. I can tell you this, that googling words should only be used to verify and existence of that word. You should then check a medical dictionary or website for proper spelling, pl., singular, etc.  I have not been doing this for long, but I am determined to become good at it. I spend a great deal of time to research a word only to be frustrated when I can not find it. The positive is that where I am employed I do receive feedback. Sometimes it takes a day or so; but, when I receive it I read it all the way through, make notes, file it away for future reference all on my own dime.

who think they are qualified because they
were nurses, medical assistants or just have kids who are sick all the time and know all the medical/lab terms! Deliver me!
maybe you are over-qualified!!??
consider yourself over-qualified, and
lucky that you didn't end up working for them! It may have been a blessing in disguise!! act like a duck, and let it slide off :)
You wouldn't be a qualified IC if they did.
my qualified opinion

is the *conspiracy* theories regarding other companies is much more far-fetched than the simple fact that not everyone had a good experience at KS.  Allow others to state to their experience without feeling  personally attacked - it is part of being an adult - the world is not defined by you and your *feelings* - tears and hysterics aside.


and is qualified for not much more than being a greeter at Walmart

MTSOs, on a scale of 1 to 10, how qualified are
I'm just wondering if you are able to hire most of the people who are applying, or if there are a lot of underqualified MTs out there. 
I am QUALIFIED to make my statements because....

I worked with these people for years and saw how they treat others.   It means absolutely nothing to people in the managment of SPI to fire people or lay them off or just take your work and send it to India or Manila.   Don't think for one second that your job is safe.    They are all about numbers...Its a numbers game...meaning revenues.

The Philippine Telecommunication company did not get to be a company worth over $100 billion US dollars  by paying labor to US employees.   They know that by taking US jobs and sending them to India or Manila will increase their profit margins 25-35% minimally.    Don't think for one second they will not do this.  

The Indian companies are much better than they were.   The Manila location has finally gotten it right.   They will be able to transition your jobs smoothly without compromising quality or TAT.   THAT'S FRIGHTENING TO SAY BUT TRUE!

They have also geared themselves with the strongest voice recognition product on the market.   

So, let's take a look at the overall picture:

1.   People resources available offshore.  YES...thousands.

2.   Ability to transition and carry out smoothly.....YES

3.   Voice recognition geared to take over.....YES

4.   Qualified editors in Manila........YES

5.   Production MTs in India......YES

6.   Large hospital organizations not afraid to offshore......YES

I dont know guys....what else does it take to paint the picture for you.    You are all smart people....figure it out!    

Because they don't hire qualified ACs in the first place
They try to promote their friends/relatives and when they find out they don't have real management skills they replace them with another friend/relative.
If you have to apply you aren't qualified
I have a nice one too, but qualified for it 4 years ago when I did well as an MT at a hospital.
each and every month. I have invested so much in this car, I don't see how I can give it up... lots of working with the lender, etc. They don't understand about outsourcing hospitals and services, they don't understand about not making rent or car payment. They only care about breaking legs if you don't make a payment. So I keep in close touch with them. This way, I have my leg available for the foot pedal, so when I do have work, I can to pay the bill.
Maybe in your case. As for me, I have many years acute care and am well qualified.
The payroll dept isn't exactly qualified. There's no accountant on staff. sm
I wish they would just let ADP or something similar handle it. So many things are incorrect so often, taxes, PTO pay missing, etc.
Keystrokes - How do they notify you if you qualified for vacation time? Thanks! nm
Gosh.. really a "former" insurance clerk. I cannot believe you qualified for such a honored po
Wow, an insurance clerk. What kind of education do you need for that. I feel your best suited for a position that would include working as the spelling police. Some people.. You should get a life!
There are so many hits on the job board for jobs that I wonder if people are qualified that respond
or just send in a resume if they are not.  Would be interesting to hear from some of these companies what type of response they are getting.
