I have never heard of that....always waited until regular pay day to receive final check.

In Reply to: I quit my job awhile ago and am still SM - Just Me
Any company I have resigned my position from, I just received my final check like usual on the regular pay date scheduled. No big deal, it was always in my bank when it was supposed to be.

I heard everyone should receive them by 10/7. Still waiting on mine.
Same here in MT, always last check on a regular pay day. nm
waited some time now
For a response to the questions raised on previous post (page 2 or 3of company forum) regarding how an IC could possibly know when and why another IC left - apparently they have problems paying IC, however they do have ONE happy IC who seems to know when and why others leave - sounds more management faking it to me.
Was wondering if there were more happy IC at this company. I am always looking for a reason to fall off my chair. Maybe if we could get two paychecks in a row that do not bounce - we would be a little bit happier.
my experience also except I waited
for a new account to start. You can set your own hours to work in a 24-hour timeframe, but everyone seems to work at a certain time. So I ended up changing my hours just to get work. I was given a secondary account, but the same thing happened. They are a good company as far as pay being on time and nice people to work for, it just depends on if you get a good account as with any national job.
ROFL! You waited eight months?
That's a long wait. Did you call or email them to follow up? It sounds like they hired someone else that didn't work out, then called you.
They're working on it? You've waited on them for 6
forget them. Unless, of course, you like being strug along.
took their test and waited for eight months to hear back from then sm
by that time I had two different jobs. No the eight months is NOT A TYPO
My boss waited a year or more a few times. Scary. -nm
I'm glad for you. I couldn't have waited the month to 6 weeks or whatever sm
that y'all went through. I'd be homeless.
I hope your work flow continues to remain steady. I know how scary that can be when the work dries up. I have gotten so paranoid, I always work 2 and sometimes 3 jobs, just to make sure I am covered. There is not a big enough cushion yet so that I feel comfortable the wolf will not be at my door.
Again, congrats -- I'm sure you are relieved.
Yes, if you did really well on the CareerStep final.
Ok, here is my final suggestion
would someone please apply and then post here what they REALLY meant. For 16 or 18 cpl, I could QUICKLY become a RAD MT with or without experience (everything is relative, you know). And if they upped it to 20 cpl, i would even take my C-phone and internet connection to Yorba Linda and work there!
So, I will be sitting by my IE just waiting to click on my MTStars link, click on Company Board, and find out that I can soon be making THE BIG BUCKS doing radiology transcription.
But let's just keep this between us, just IN CASE they only have 3 or 4 positions open, ok? Deal or No Deal?????
Final opinions about job offers
I have been offered as I stated below 2 positions as this point, one with Transcend and one with Softscript. Both have been very nice and responsive, and SoftScript has been very organized about sending sign-on papers and handbooks, etc. I also have the option since I only work part-time and have never run out of work of staying with the Q, but not being able to get a straight answer as to whether or not we will have jobs down the road. Softscript's pay is comparable and even slightly more than what I'm making now, and Transcend's is less, but that's okay if I'm going to have a job down the road. I have to make a final decision by tonight or tomorrow. Thanks everyone!!!
The physician makes the final
We are transcriptionists, not physicians. We don't make any calls. We transcribe what we hear, and they read the report and sign off. It's that simple. It always has been that simple.
No one here deserves the salary of anything more than what they get or make production wise.
Do you really think these MTSOs are charging a million dollars or what? They make money by bidding accounts and then sub the work out whether that be by hiring employees or by contracting with an IC.
I don't know where people come up with this idea that we are the bread and butter of these companies. We are the worker bees. Do a good job and you'll make some money. I make twice as much now working from home than I did hourly with benefits and the benefits were crap.
I can set my own tone. I transcribe to the best of my ability but by darn it if I can't understand what the dictator says, I leave a blank, and they fill it in. That's what transcription is about.
I need sample dictations with their final notes.
Can someone suggest me a place to find a few sample dictations with their final notes, so that I could evaluate myself?
Yes, I did e-mail Lee. Im still waiting for a final response. nm
I meant I am the only one that is getting a final warning for not making
Do you get paid for grosses, then again for the final pathology? sm
IRS is the final arbiter on this unless their ruling is taken to Tax Court
Below, you'll the link to the IRS page on this question. Paste it your browser. Or, follow the link at the bottom of the post.
As companies exert more and more control over the work, it gets harder and harder to see how most of them can take advantage of hiring people as ICs. I think the IRS has taken their eye off this ball in recent years.
One thing of SPECIAL NOTE: On this page you will find a link to a form called SS-8, which EITHER the company or the worker can file with the IRS for an official determination of your status.
It can take awhile to get this back, but in the meantime, if you're an IC you might want to ask your company whether they have filed an SS-8 for this determination, as the IRS recommends companies that use IC's file this form.
Lawsuits? YOU are responsible for final product, sm
VR doesn't claim to put out a perfect product and never will.
No, the MTSO is responsible for the final product,
and when they give you a garbage platform and force you to fly through reports to make minimum wage, it's too easy to make mistakes. They know this & don't care, and THEY are responsible for the product they are selling. If your brand new Toyota explodes, you don't sue the assembly guy, you sue Toyota... so bwahaha to the MTSO.
I can't wait to make the final decision today!!!
I am sooooo tired!!!! This is exhausting. LOL I know SoftScript was very organized and already has me ready to go with signs and everything, but am still a little leary of them as far as rigidity and strictness. Transcend seemed a little more flexible, not that you don't have to follow your schedule, but they give you 90 days to get up to speed and Softscript only 30.
I was told this morning that it is in the works, final paperwork signed last Friday. sm
My single coverage is only $184 a month. I do not know where you heard over $500.
Just because someone does not receive
their paystub, does not mean it was not sent. With the banks being closed, if funds were sent and missed the deadline, it would be the next business day before it is posted. I always get my paystub the day AFTER deposit.
I gave notice and was told had to work final weeks in order to be eligible for rehire. Had no
Didn't receive it either...
I'm not directing this question to you but just wondering why some of us receive these E-mails and some of us do not? Does it matter what account you're on?
You should receive it Saturday. Sometimes
Anyone receive their Medscribe (FL) W2 yet?
Anyone from Spheris receive theirs?
Did anyone receive a phone call yet
or is this all speculation???
MTs don't stay long enough to receive anything
Sorry, I didnt receive an email. Could you try again. nm
They receive money from companies
did not receive yahoo request sm
can you resend it as I did not get it. You have my yahoo email there right? I will be back in about 2 hours adn will check for it again then. thanks so much!!
How can you receive an email form your
company if your email is not typed exactly right? It will never be delivered into your inbox, but will go right back to the company, as 'not able to deliver.'
Obviously you don't receive the crappy quality of drafts...sm
that I see all day long on this system. They claim that it learns but it doesn't, because my coworkers and I make the same corrections over and over again to the same things.
Batch receive/send work?
Is there any company out there where you can download work in batches and send back transcribed reports in batches? I can only get dialup and it is too slow to do 1-3 jobs at a time. 30+ years experience, big 4 and Radiology, Medical and Radiation Oncology. I am currently employed in hospital radiology department but want to go back home. Hate this winter driving!!!
What companies acknowledge MT week and, if so, what do you receive? nm
Sometimes I want to hire the first professional resume I receive!
And just because it is so well done!
Those email wallpapers make my eyes cross and twitch after a little bit of time! If I cannot read it easily, I chunk it.
I hate it that people cannot be more thoughtful of their own careers but I'm not getting paid to advise them of their mistakes.
I agree with the above. You receive no appreciation. I would stay where you are. nm
The QA is rough. I receive a lot of feedback. Looks like those of you that are not happy with your
again and have to bash a company that has pulled ahead of the crowd in terms of employee satisfaction. Sad, sad, sad.
Happy Camper, which company did you receive it from?
Anxiously awaiting gift from TT; hope it is their usual in a larger amount. Don't need cookies, what-nots, etc. as some companies send to their MT's. Love that monetary stuff!
New people hired are last to receive work.
This is the confidentiality clause on email I receive

The way I translate that whole paragraph is:
I am the intended recipient. The rest of the paragraph does not apply.
However, if I were NOT the intended recipient, THEN I am hereby notified regarding disclosure, copying, distribution, blah blah blah blah.
Go prove your case and get what is owed to you.
I didn't receive a score but the test was hard.
I'm almost afraid to ask what I got.
Is it okay to not receive any mail from the office for a few days at a time? (sm)
Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. Had been getting memos quite frequently and now nothing since last week. Didn't want to call the office and look like a boob, so thought I would check here first. TIA.
Yes...Career Step has a referral program where you receive something like sm
50.00 for every person who signs up for Career Step through you. I BET they are affiliated. How unprofessional can one co. be?
I live in Idaho.. and our laws are that you can only be fired and NOT receive unemployment ..
if you were fired for gross misconduct and boy is that a loose term. I worked for an office that fired two transcriptionists, each were absolutely horrible and used wrong terminology etc.. yet they were able to get unemployment because although they were obviously not competent for the job, they do not consider that gross misconduct. Strange laws here.. Just means you can stink at your job, get fired, and still get paid.. We believe one of the transcriptionists intentionally screwed up so bad that she would be fired and could collect unemployement.
I receive an anonymous email from someone that had a friend go to work for them and it was bad news.
Glad I passed it up. It sounded awful, no communication and no work etc..
I didn't even receive the courtesy of an e-mail, phone call, etc. sm
I thought the test was very easy. I've got 18-years of experience, sent a cover letter (that I spent an hour on) in addition to my resume and got not response whatsoever. The least an MTSO could do is say, Thanks, but no thanks. Daily applications, cover letters, and testing without so much as an email is beyond frustrating!
My understanding was that in order to receive Medicare/Medicaid payment sm
providers will be required to have EMR.
