I posted a cut and paste of what sm
Posted By: MT 34 years and frustrated on 2009-04-02
In Reply to: I looked at the gov't website re status - sm
they sent me and it clearly states that you are hired as an SC and then are offered SE status. That's pretty clear. My question is why would they hire you as SC status, tell you when to work and then offer you SE status? Pretty fishy. I understand you don't like the comment I made about being pimped out but I don't know what else to call it when folks accept this practice of working as an SC being told what and when, paying double taxes and putting up with this stuff. your just handing your hard-earned money over!

Wilma reincarnated. Cut and paste same response. Cut and paste. nm
Did anyone ever tell you why no cut/paste? I always want to know why. sm
But I'm not going to be able to continue working for them, since they just don't have enough work during the time I have available, so it won't be a problem.
I am trying to paste...
My resume in the Transtech application form. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to do that?
Cut & Paste why?
I have been curious about this for a while. Why do companies need us to cut and paste our resumes into an email rather than attaching them. 9 out of 10 companies on MTjobs request this and go so far as to say they will DELETE emails with attachments. Anyone know or have a guess?
Info is obviously a cut and paste.
Anyone could do it. Why would OSi stoop so low?
going to cut and paste your post
because everything you have said is so very, very true. I don't have 31 years of experience - but I do have 25 years of transcription/secretarial experience and 12 years of MT - so I have a little bit of an idea what I am doing - and you are so right - if you cannot at least bring in $100 a day - why bother? I am at that point too. I am doing SR for 4.5 cpl now - but have something else in the works - it is my very last straw.... so not giving up quite yet. I am so very, very sorry for what you have gone through - know you are not alone - not sure what can be done - but you are not the only one in this boat!!
Copy and Paste....
I have a few of my own standards in MS Word that I will copy and paste into Meditech, but I find the tabs do not translate over to Meditech. Do you have this problem as well? It is aggravating because I have to fix these when I go back to the Meditech screen
I use Meditech and don't cut and paste
and it's fine for me.....we use Word inside Meditech so I have all my macros and stuff.
This might help you out :)
thanks for the copy and paste--sm
but latest and related are not the same thing. all I am seeing are posts that were placed after mine and nothing in relation to the original post questioning the company. sorry again.
Can't bring up the article - could you cut and paste - sm
it so that we could read it??
copy/paste is against the rules.. we were
from the onset to NEVER EVER copy and paste. If you are doing this you should stop it soon before they figure it out and you get in trouble.
If I had to copy & paste my IM to an email...
...because I needed a conversation documented, I would do it. I would find a way. Even if I had to get a disposable camera and take a couple of darn pictures of the computer with the IM on it. LOL!
By the way, what happens if you doin't respond to the IM? Are you an employee with the co? No co. would make me do IM, but that's me. What is the co. so concerned about that they don't want something documented in email???
Should I attach or copy and paste
the questionnaire and resume into an email when sending them back to Webmedx? No preference was given.
When you paste a resume on the Job Seekers
or does it print correctly on the recruiter's side?
could you quickly copy and paste your document into another? then
you could just keep adding on the lines in each document to your own master document for the day. Then you would have a line count for the day. I bet you could write a macro to do this.
Just paste it and let it go. They're looking for content, not format, when ....sm
...the resume is sent via a web contact form. If you are a good MT with good qualifications, they won't care how it's set up, but do make sure words are spelled correctly. That's a huge bugaboo when I read resumes.
Highlight all the text you want to paste and right click
your mouse. You should get a list of options, one of which is copy. Select copy. Go to the page you want to paste your resume and right click your mouse again. Again you will have options, one of which should be paste. Click paste and there is it. If you right click the second time and you don't get paste, go back through the above steps again and copy again and then try paste.
Cut & paste. They expected us to type in Word and
but that still takes time to copy/paste
This company prob charges their client the same rate for the entire report; everyone is feeling the crunch! So, let's hit the MT's pocket; I'd pass on companies like that.
Any company will leave you alone if you do your work, so that's not a plus!
Put them in auto-correct - copy and paste. Quick and easy! nm
TSI now SoftMed was supposed to be atrocious with their DOS software and cut-and-paste work. Any
I googled labor board. Copy/paste in address bar
May have to key in either your state or company state not sure which or maybe both.
you get a form to put in your name, email, and paste your resume. MTSpot sends it to the recipient
No special software. Just copy and paste the report you typed to Microsoft Word on your
computer. Under the Tools menu, select Word Count. Characters are listed with or without spaces. Take the total of either and divide by 65 to get your line count. Then match that with what your company is giving you for a line count.
If you don't have Microsoft Word, then you can download a free trial of Abacus line counting software from the internet.
The Rates Are Posted Here and Posted Below
The service owner fees are posted in a UnionNow post (below), but here they are again:
SERVICE OWNERS CHARGE:
$0.115 - $0.25 per line for full transcription of acute care on 24/7 accounts
$2.75 - $7.65 per report for full transcription of pathology, lab, specialty operative notes, plain film and interventional radiology
$0.097 - $0.125 per line for VR editing
OF THAT MONEY, MTs ARE RECEIVING
$0.85 - $1.25 per report full transcription
$0.06 - $0.115 per line full transcription
$0.035 - $0.06 per line for VR editing
AS OUR PRODUCTION BRINGS THE MONEY IN, WE DESERVE A LARGER CHUNK OF THE PROFITS - OFFICE STAFF CAN BE TRIMMED INSTEAD OF THE PRODUCTION STAFF. IF A RECEPTIONIST MISSES A DAY OF WORK, ANYONE CAN ANSWER THE PHONE IN HER PLACE. IF AN MT NEEDS A DAY OR SO OFF, PATIENT CARE CAN SUFFER BECAUSE AN INTEGRAL MEMBER OF A HEALTH CARE TEAM IS UNAVAILABLE.
WE ARE STILL EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IN THE HEALTH CARE PICTURE. DO NOT SELL YOURSELVES SHORT.
IF YOU ARE AGAINST UNIONS OR INITIATIVES, I WHOLEHEARTEDLY RESPECT YOUR OPINION, BUT BEG THAT YOU RESEARCH, SPEAK TO OTHERS, EDUCATE YOURSELVES ABOUT WORKERS UNITED. WE HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE HERE; THEY'VE TAKEN ALMOST EVERYTHING FROM US.
$1.25 PER REPORT TRANSCRIBED IN THE U.S.A. BY A U.S. MTs
$0.10 PER LINE TRANSCRIBED IN THE U.S.A. BY A U.S. MTs
$0.075 PER VR LINE EDITED IN THE U.S.A. BY U.S. MTs
They posted everything else, why not the....
unfortunately, whenever a job is posted - sm
no matter what is specified for requirements for the job, you would be surprised just how many people will send a resume. With all the jobs I have posted, I make sure I put the necessary requirements, i.e. foreign language requirement, absolutely no offshore companies, etc., and I STILL GET 100+ emails from people that have no idea what transcription is (yes, they actually put that down), Indian and Phillipine companies emailing, as well as the countless number of people that do not even remotely meet the requirements. I have even had some with gross misspellings!!! Can you believe that?
I hope this isn't harsh, but it can be quite frustrating just weeding through the resumes to find the ones that actually fit the bill.
It wouldn't surprise me that you have not heard from them yet - they are probably still weeding through the resumes. If you are qualified, then hang in there, I'm sure they will contact you.
I posted asking about....sm
The computers companies provide, whether they were crap or not and that appears to be gone as well. I did not identify a specific employer or anything. Having a failing computer and job hunting currently, I just wondered what you'd get but someone posted that it made sense for the company to send you a decent system so they could keep you working. I could see her point....a perspective I had not looked at.
I know they posted an ad
I believe I would write to them and ask, or call if they have an 800 number to find out if they want IC or employee MTs. Don't know if they offer insurance or not.
I have posted before on this co. sm
The staff is great..really nice people..they paid me my s/o bonus even after I quit before my 60 days which I thought was great..however, if you do not like MedType or MedRite..forget it. Hey, when I got the 6 huge binders of paperwork with my PC..I knew I was in for trouble. It doesn't have to be that hard.
It was posted here before but...
it seems like MDI wants no backlog whatsoever. I mean, even if there are only 20 jobs in the system, they're zipping out E-mails that we need to wipe them out ASAP. I don't get it.
That was already posted below, but
is wrong. sm means see message. People put sm and then say long message. Sm does not mean small message.
just posted Jan 6
I just asked some questions about Transolutions on 1/6. There have been recent changes that affect pay and I am wondering if others are frustrated and worried as I am. I have been an MT for lotsa years and now feel like my QA has fallen drastically because of new higher standards, which have not been consistent either. Plus, you have to be very careful how many reports you put on hold, no matter the reason.
She posted above that she does NOT
YOU might want to take time to read this person's posts before you come to this board offering instructions to me. She may not work in her living room, maybe she works in her bedroom....but she does not work in the KS office.
Since she's already posted her name..
I can tell you that CW has been one of the strongest anti-offshoring activitists in the business. She wrote a long letter on the subject to the Atlanta Journal and I think even went to see the gov. of Ga. personally concerning the matter. She has urged her fellow MTs to get active in writing their state politicians about this issue. So if she's having to admit defeat, she didn't go down without a fight. Just thought I'd pass this on FYI.
that was posted
She posted her name. What else was I
Puts her name out there and then is upset by someone calling her by HER OWN NAME!!! ROFL
Yes, to whoever posted it. nm
It was posted that some ME at
now, after many months, but not too many are there yet. At 4 CPL, which is what they pay, that would be MAYBE 12 bucks an hour at the top of the editing 300 LPH. Nothing to brag about in my opinion. I make more straight typing. But those still at 200 LPH make less than a janitor.
Yes, I think I am the one who posted, and yes I do like it there.
People are not constantly calling you or bothering you. You do have to keep your schedule though. There is plenty of work. They don't pay for the template though.
well, from what I can tell - they have posted
three times for the job and are very clear about wanting someone local to the area. So that ruled me out because I live in Clearwater.
See the ads posted
They have 2 ads up on MT Stars - one is for acute care and ops the other for ER. I sent my resume yesterday - use the 2nd e-mail address as the first one (which, if I remember right) was resumes@accustat-mts bounced back, but the 2nd one went thru.
I, along with others, have posted
some ESL tips on, I think, the main board. Try doing a search for those. If you do not come up with anything helpful, post again. I will try to remember some good pointers in the meantime.
Just relax.....don't make it any harder for yourself than you may think it is!
When you get it, you'll get it, and wonder *how i the world did I ever understand what he/she was saying??*
NJ. They have an ad posted.
Sorry I posted this twice
I got an error message the first time and didn't see it until I reposted.
I posted with my
positive experience with D&L. I never had any problems with the pay arriving on time or being incorrect. *Lana*'s insinuation that there is something *funny* about not posting my actual name on a web board is most likely her personal problem, not mine.
it's posted below
Each job that gets posted seems to go
lower and lower in pay! What in the world? This is ridiculous. I think it's over. They can have it all, with all of their YOU MUST have's while offering you pennies. Blagh!
I have posted on this before if you SM
have a choice between being a hospital employee and just working for DR directly, choose the hospital route. Your benefits are much cheaper and BETTER with the hospital. DR only offers the average benefits for this field, which are low anyway.
I don't know who posted this
People are really outrageous. Whoever posted this message really has an issue with Axolotl for some reason as they put the poster's name as Axolotl MT.
