Info is obviously a cut and paste.

Anyone could do it. Why would OSi stoop so low?

    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?
    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 posted a cut and paste of what 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!
    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.
    resume cut/paste
    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.
    Any recent info on MedTrans Unlimited? newest archived info is 9 months old... m

    Has anything changed in 9 months? Particular worries are the invoice/pay time; one post mentioned 2 to 3 week wait and another post stated 1 week. Info from the company states pay is sent out 10 days after the last day of the billing period, but we all know what is said and what is done isn't always the same. Another concern is the platform; some mentioned it was slow and cumbersome. They have 2 platforms from what I can gather.. Are they both slow? It seemed like certain specialties were done on certain platforms, or at least that is what I got out of the archives. I really hate to jump from the frying pan to the fire so any info would be VERY much appreciated.. the good, bad, and the ugly! TIA!!

    Any Axolotl employees willing to share info., platform, ESL %, etc. All info greatly appreciated. sm

    Along with the platform, ESL %, pay range, lpd required, split shift or 12-24 hour window available, I would be interested in knowing your personal experience with this company, what type of relationship you have with supervisors and other coworkers, etc.  Otherwise, the all the 411. 


    Current info on Diskriter?? Past info was very mixed. Either MTs hated it or liked it, does anyone

    love working there and why? Do you easily meet your incentive pay or as past people have said, the ESL are so bad that you never meet the line count. I need current and new information. Isnt there a company out there that has a handful of happy employees or does all of them have both the haters and lovers. It is so hard to sort out fact from fiction sometimes and all of us have different expectations. It kind of goes along with the one man's junk is another man's treasures theory, I suppose.

    Any new info on Amphion? Archive search doesn't provide new info (sm)
    Looking for a part-time position with decent pay and decent workflow. There's nothing new in the archives.
    Need info on eMTS out of Florida. Any info would be appreciated!
    Any new updates on Focus for QA? Good info/bad info? sm msg
    I checked the archives and read all the messages.  Have things changed for the better here?  Is there steady, reliable work?  Able to make any decent money?  Thanks!
    Any info on Sten-Tel..not much info
    Any info is appreciated.
    Sorry, but I want info, lots of info...
    before I make any decisions about what comes next in my work life.

    Would you like fries with that, Sir? Welcome to WalMart! How'm I doing so far? Do I sound sincere yet? (At least these two companies are, and always will be, USA-based.)
    I'd like some info as well.
    Would like info
    Please send me some info too. orangeblossom@charter.net
    I would appreciate info also.
    I am from Chicago office and have heard nothing about this.   Thanks
    Does anyone have any info on...
    Digital Transcription, Inc.  I am looking into a part-time job and need to know how this company is to work for.  Thanks.
    Here's some info...

    I asked the same question a couple days ago and got some VERY VERY negative responses.  I actually told the recruiter that they had a negative reputation on these boards and she seemed flabergasted.  I needed an employee position and they hire only IC.  Pay is 9 cents/65 char line with spaces.  They have 2 hospital accounts they are hiring for; one they will send you a computer and you will use their requipment.  The other requires purchase of a C-phone.  They are standard 4 hospital.  You must commit to a minimum line count (1000 lines per day).  No benefits.  Direct deposit twice a month. 

    I was not impressed and was glad when i discovered they were only looking for IC.

    Hope this helps.


    Anyone have info on All-Med?nm
    Any info on OSI....
    Good or bad, platform, etc.  Thanks
    Info on SS
    They are a very good company to work for.  I have been with them as an Editor for 7 months.  Pay is very good.   Unfortunately I don't believe they pay for spaces, but a lot of companies do not anymore, so therefore, you would have to decide if that is acceptable to you or not.  You can get a very flexible work schedule.  The only thing they ask is that you work when you are scheduled.  For a while, there was a lot of emails being sent out, but that has significantly decreased since certain people are gone now.  Every company has its ups and downs as we can read on these boards every day.  SoftScript is not perfect, but they are not as bad as everyone makes them out to be either.
    Anyone have any info on
    A search of the archives produced very little information, but I have seen them advertising several times.
    Thanks for the info
    Any info on E-MTS?
    Thanks for the info.....
    Do you use the C-phone or are you on another account?
    Need info

    Can anyone tell me if there is such a thing as a "slow time" when typing IMEs?


    thanks for this info . .
    even tho' I'm not the person who originally asked. I've also been looking for ways to submit writings, but didn't know who was on the up-and-up (should be hypenated, right?) on the net. This helps.
    Thanks for the info!

    I recently applied to Spheris and they allow 1/8 hr block, 2/4 hr blocks, or a 12 hr block that you can work your eight hours within.
    Thanks for the info.
    I had applied with them, but I don't want to work for a company that offshores.
    Thanks for the info!
