I don't know where you live but where I live foreclosures are rising and there are no jobs -- non
I worried about my employer for part of the winter as my accounts grew sparse. I had plan to switch to being an employee with benefits but dared not make the switch in this economy (this was last year this time, got it?)
I figured keeping my seniority was worth whatever security it afforded.

My accounts have rebounded some and I can pay my bills.

By economizing seriously, I have paid off my credit card and put some money aside, just in case. I'm breathing easier, thanks.

So, all in all, I'm not complaining. This last winter was brutal, but I had a job and I paid my bills. When employment rebounds and/or national health goes into effect, people will go to the doctor again and we will be busy.

My part of the world is like a ghost town -- everyone who could left to find work in the city -- many apparently leaving their homes to the banks. Several houses in my vicinity have been on the market more than 4 years.

Forgive me my loyalty ... it pays the bills.

What does yelling at the rest of us do for you?
TRX, Portland and New York
Can anyone tell me anything about this company?  Searched the archives and found nothing helpful.
New York location
I don't know about the other, but the one in New York has a very nasty attitude when it comes to transcribing foreign languages.
I'm near the border of New York
What part are you in?
They were pulled into Warminster and some may now be in New York.
Any info on CMTI in New York? NM
Superior Transcription Co, New York

Does anyone know anything about this company?  I tried to download their instruction files, and when I double click on the installation file like the directions say, it just brings up a page of symbols.  There's got to be another way.

The lady wanted me to start right away today, and sent me all the things I have to download (Voice Scribe), then it was late in the day and I didn't get it all downloaded by the time she left at 4:45 PM.  Now I'm not sure if I can do this. I can't call her back until Monday.

anyone have any experience with this company? QA seems rude and they seem to nitpick every comma and I am not sure how long I will last on that job. Would appreciate any info.

I did well on my tests, but was told after 30 days of being with them I would have to pay $600 for their platform, payable at $25 a week. Did you have to pay this? The only contact I had was with Rosanne.

Anyone have any information on SpetraMedi Medical Transcription out of New York
Need opinions. I am part of the Northeast region of MQ or New York and we have been told that they

want to keep all the accounts so I assume that means all the NE Region within one hour of being out of work and out of work every night or caught up. Now I ask you where does this leave the MTs. I am speaking of acute care accounts with TAT of 12, 24 and 48 hours. Our offifce accounts are already complaining of poor quality work coming back to them because of just everyone being thrown into them to get the work done so I guess to accomplish this ridiculous obssessive 1 hour complete work situtation they will lose accounts and quite obviously MTs as running that close to complete in my option will run us continuously out of work into backups and of course then we are watched for how much of our work goes to QA etc. Does this seem like a no win situation. ASR has picked over all the accounts already also on DQS. I can see looking around very soon depending on how this situation plays out. Is this idea crazy or is it normal.



We keep getting these ridiculous bulletins carbon copies to everyone in New York MQ it seems telling
us how far off this TAT we are. I think they should stick their 1 hour TAT where the light doesnt shine. The only time the TAT for 1 hour percentage is right is when there is no work. I think MQ needs to be looking for some new managers or soon that is all there will be left, all managers no workers to pay their freaking salaries.
Awhile back they got a New York account that everybody is fussing about the ESLs
It depends how fast they are growing. I worked for a company in New York that sm
had 5 new accounts start, 1 a month for 5 months, that were all very large and needed 20+ MTs. They are now a larger company and do not constantly need new MTs, but I think it is unfair to judge a company by how many people it is hiring. I think it would be interested to find out how many are new positions and how many are due to MTs leaving and why they left.
Anyone know any info on Silent Type out of New York? I don't know how to find in archives. Thnx
It depends on where you live. If you live in their
service area it would be cheaper than outside their service area.   I only have rates for out of service area and medical is  139.13 for family or 168.42 depending on what plan you choose.  Dental is 20.85 for family, vision is 5.13.  These are per pay period. 

Individual coverage would be 44.79/54.21 medical, 7.99 dental, and 1.71 vision.  

I opted out of insurance as we have through my husband's job.  I believe  the cheaper insurance is a 70/30 plan and the more expensive an 80/20, not sure about co-pays.  Deductibles are $2000 for family, not sure about individual.
As a recruiter, I'd hire an Andrews grad in a New York minute. You're doing a great job of se
They are properly trained. They are ready and able to work from day #1.
Wouldn't YOU like to have training that made you a hot commodity the minute you graduate? Maybe you should go back to school so you can be an arrogant MT and not be penalized because you aren't cutting it.

As a famous model once said Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.

Good luck in your future endeavors.

i live in NC. Where is this sm
company at. I am thinking about changing employers.
Yes, I used to live near them.

There was a recent post at this link.  http://forum.mtstars.com/company/v/1/7698.html

And a post from 2004 stating that they were disorganized.

They don't live up to their name...nm
don't know but u live elsewhere than me....sm

When I go soliciting more private work (rarity), I expect exactly what I charge today and for the past 10 years; have never raised my rates. I chose my rate by what was/is usual and customary in the area where I live and what other fellow MTs charge.  No complaints thus far, but I live in and around a couple of huge cities, and I do charge 12 cpl, promising 24-48 TAT, with close to 3 decades experience.  Best luck to you !!  

Anyone here live in PA???
side of the state and wondering if anyone could tell me of some good neighborhoods to move into; anywhere between Stroudsburg and Philly.  Thanks everyone!
Where I live
pretty much all jobs require a background check and the potential employers pay for them. I have had to have a background check for every job I have applied for here. It really wasn't a big deal.
if that is all it is, i can live with that;
I will just remember to get it in on time.

I believe you have to live near SM
the hospital to reap the full benefits of the insurance.

Others have stated they cannot use the hospital insurnance and that there is little work, due to over-hiring.
I live in s/m
NW Arkansas (Wal-Mart country).  There are craft fairs and festivals just about every weekend.  Near Eureka Springs where the whole town is made up of gift shops and tourism is about their only industry.  Lots of wealthy tourists willing to pay $5000 to $10000 for a quilt.  Yes, I meant to add that many zeros.  Nice gourd birdhouses they'll pay $150 or more for.  30% commission still leaves a nice hefty profit. 
Where do you live?
and what sort of experience is your 14 years in? I work for a hospital that is looking to hired experienced MTs right now... some leads, but still some possible openings. What state/city are you in?

I worked for a service, then for a hospital. My hospital experience is totally positive. I wouldn't go back. Just my 2 cents worth. Hope you find something!
Where do you live?

maybe it depends where you live,
it was in the regular mail. Corporate is in the northeast and so am I. Maybe that's why I got mine and you are waiting.
live s/b life (nm)

it helps if you put where you live - sm
you stated microcassettes accounts - so more than likely maybe something nearby or a hospital that perhaps still dictates the old fashioned way - (AND YES, THERE ARE HOSPITALS THAT DO STILL USE TAPES!!)

so whereabouts do you live
how do you live off 800$ a month?
Depending on where you live (sm)
this could be a very good position for you. The people I used to supervise (pathology transcriptionists in-house) made about $15-19 per hour depending on how long they had been there. This is in Southern California, though, where employers will pay a little more when transcriptionists are scarce.
Depends on where you live
It sounds like you live in an area where there is a moderate cost of living. Here in the Bay Area, $15 an hour for an MT in any specialty/area is unheard of. Most start at $22 an hour for 1+ years experience. Well, this is what needed -- plus a lot more -- to pay $2,000 a month for rent or purchase a $600,000 two-bedroom house.
Re: Depends on where you live.
In the East Bay, say Albany, El Cerrito, Pinole, El Sobrante, and there are some very nice areas in Richmond (despite the news/press coverage), even all the way out to Vallejo and Fairfield. But for Berkeley, San Francisco, Marin, the West Bay, and the South Bay - forget about it!! All depends on where you like to live and what you can afford. If you are looking for Marin or Walnut Creek-type neighborhoods, then you will pay $1 million for a two-bedroom house. If you are looking for more modest, but still nice neighborhoods like those above, then you will find what you are looking for in the East Bay.
The town that I live in is

Stillwell, in Georgia.  The Stillwell is for the town, MTC is Medical Transcriptionist Coder.  :) 

thanks for the info though.

We must live in the same neighborhood (sm)

The cost of living is too high here to work for 8 cents per line.

The nationals have sucked up all the work here because it is such a high cost of living.

It would be fine if they would give me a decent account, but I haven't had a decent account from a company in such a long time, I just gave it up.  I am tired of wasting my time and energy only to get the worst of the worst again.  You can't make a living on it.

I don't know what state you live in but,

in my state (Maine) whether you quit or are fired, you get no unemployment unless you honestly cannot find employment for a period of 3 months.

Check your state unemployment benefit laws.

I can live with some ESLs, but I don't - sm
Really want to do predominantly-ESL work. Would you say that the work is mostly ESL?

TIA, by the way!
Since you live in Australia sm
you might want to check with companies there in your own country. Not sure who in America hires from Australia. The companies I have worked for required their transcriptionists to live in the US.
I live in Clarksville -

Are you from this area?

If you live in Virginia, then take the job because then you
could go directly to his office and DEMAND your paycheck (I am being sarcastic). This man is notorious for not paying his employees.
Bad MTs don't just live in India -
I am an Editor and there are plenty of bad, sloppy, careless MTs in this country; some are just plain bad MTs who shouldn't be in this work and some just have a bad doc/make an honest mistke. While I don't like offshoring, it's wrong to assume that all the MTs there are terrible and that their work should be sent without editing just to make US MTs look better.
I can live with myself just fine, thank you,....

because you definitely have the wrong person.....I didn't steal anything! And not that I should have to justify my actions to you, but I don't post my name on ANY message board.

Newbie has a lot to live up to....

And, what world do you live in?
that pays for downtime.
Nope....unless you can live on
