I think that many job seekers
view the insurance provided and premium rate to be quite, quite high on the list of important information needed, so I do not think this is a bash post. It seems the uncertainty about insurance with this particular entity has been questioned several times over the last month or so, therefore it is a valid topic for discussion. Thanks for management coming on and providing specific information.
Thank you! Just wanted I wanted to hear!
There is a posting on the Job seekers...
board for Hanover PA that mentions a Pennsylvania board. Does anyone know where I would find this? Thanks!
Try the Job Seekers board. Many of them sm
indicate that they hire US MTs only.
Try Diskriter, add on Job Seekers
I work as a hospital employee through Diskriter and the benefits are very affordable. They are advertising for a Florida hospital. I don't work for this particular hospital, but in general I am sure the benefits are better and more affordable than any national company. I think there are only certains states that they can hire employees from, so you will have to check on that. I have love my job with DR as a hospital employee. I'm making more than I have ever made as an MT in 15 years. You can find some more info in a thread towards the bottom of the page. Don't let the negative posts discourage you. The hiring process is a little more involved, but it is for a hospital employee position, which makes a big difference.
Oh...the thing in Job Seekers...
Yeah, it seems odd that he doesn't mention pay.
It looks like on the Job Seekers' board that most
I wonder how many of those clicks results in resumes. Seems like all the companies would be getting inundated with applicants right now.
If you look at the Job Seekers board you will see
your questions. Also Transcription Relief Services is another company that is always looking.
See the Job Seekers board, please. (SM)
The job advertisements are very descriptive. You should be able to discern easily who has insurance and who doesn't.
The Company board is for asking about specific companies.
Do you mean the Job Seekers board?
I count 23 job postings in the last week, so I would say it's far from dried up.
Job Seekers/Job Bank
I never really noticed how many were coming on a daily basis before. They obviously haven't flocked to the other board. I think they have 7 postings for the whole month. Maybe companies just aren't hiring as much right now. I didn't notice the Job Bank before you said that. I never even think to look there. Maybe companies aren't thinking to post there, either.
ATTENTION ALL JOB SEEKERS
Regretfully, we have had an incident where an unscrupulous offshore individual has placed an advertisement for employment, pretending to be an actual US-based company. Apparently, some have applied and even begun to work by this ad with an abrupt cancellation.
The owner of the actual company (US-based) has contacted us and is understandably upset.
We have removed the advertisement and placed a ban on this individual. Please, if you have responded to or are corresponding with anyone related to the ad, we advise you to stop.
The ad was posted on 10/03/08 by Timothy Olyphant and the subject was Seeking Contractors. This what the ad stated:
We are currently seeking contractors for Transcription Project. Audio is downloaded via FTP. Preferably, these contractors would work the morning shift clearing jobs as they come through the server. We are looking for contractors committed to do 5000 lines/day, Tuesday through Saturday. This contractor positions are available immediately. Interested contractors can send in the resumes/contractor profile to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please quote your rate per line.
Please note that this ad is a scam and the email address is not the actual address of the real US-based company.
We encourage you to contact the Administrator (email@example.com) or one of our Moderators (firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) with any complaints or suspicions you have about advertisements on MTStars' Job Seeker's Board.

WAITING FOR WORK? POSTING ON JOB SEEKERS BOARD.sm
07/28/09 for new MTs, FT & PT, all shifts. Are they saying the accounts are UNDERSTAFFED?
Naturally, the new hirees will be gooing and gushing all over this board again about how GREAT their accounts are and how EASY their dictators are.
I JUST WONDER WHAT THIS LATEST, YET ANOTHER HIRING BLITZ IS GOING TO LEAD TO IN ANOTHER FEW WEEKS. Anyone care to predict? .
Posted on wrong board. Plz see Seekers board.
Thanks for saying what I wanted to say...
We are not the same as Transcend, although we both are good companies. We care about MTs... and I would love to know who the posters are that claim differently.
As Liz says below -- e-mail her or give her a call.
I just wanted to say that I don't believe the
Indian worker is trying to destroy the American dream, they are trying live it. Blame should go to the companies who are taking the work and sending it overseas, not the workers who are given an opportunity to better their life situation. This doesn't mean I agree with off-shoring, I just think blame for the dying of the American MT profession is sometimes misplaced.
I have been following this and I wanted SM
to say that it might not be that you were the only one this happened to---a lot of people just see the $ coming out of the paycheck and don't think they have to confirm that the plan holder got it (because the company should be more trustworthy).
The way these companies are now, it's probably a better thing if you take the check they gave you and found an IRA to invest in yourself. You can also arrange to contribute to it throughout the year (although it will be after-tax money, but you will be able to claim the contribution at the end of the year and get that tax back) out of your own bank account. The situation that happened to you is unacceptable. You are being far more gracious than I would under the same circumstances.
We do not allow job-wanted ads. (SM)
Please feel free to post your resume on the resume bank or search the Job Seeker's board.
In the future, if you have a question about your post, please e-mail the Administator or myself.

just wanted to add...
it sounded very familiar to a presentation presented by a former employer YEARS ago. It was a very small local MTSO, and he was reworking the pay scale in order to cover other expenses. He showed us a pie chart of what a huge chunk MT wages took out of the total revenue (DUH -- would you HAVE revenue without us) and mentioned how we could increase our wages by becoming more productive (the latter, I believe, was mentioned more than once in the DRC/Acusis presentation -- read: don't count on making your current wage -- but you'll be able to offset that by increasing your productivity -- HA). We didn't get the pie chart in this presentation, but it was clear they want a good portion of their revenue to go to research and development.
I'm cautiously optimistic -- I would LOVE to switch careers but at my age it's impossible -- I know because I have tried. Once you have worked at home doing this for X number of years, you basically don't qualify for anything else unless you wish to flip burgers. A friend asked: Can they really cut your wages? And i explained how the lovely world of MT CAN and DOES do that: I predict in this case, it will be: We are switching to a different way of counting lines, and we will adjust your pay per keystroke appropriately. And LO AND BEHOLD, when you crunch the numbers, you will notice that your pay has been appropriately adjusted DOWNward.
Did you tell them you wanted to do OPs and they said OK, or just
not check it out at all???
I just wanted to say ....
I have worked for Liz, and she is really great. She was always very understanding and went out of her way to be kind to me. I did not see the ad you guys are referring to, and I understand no one wanting to feel like they are being insulted, but for her to have written something like what I imagine the ad said from what I can gather from your posts, she had to be frustrated. I would totally work for her again.
I think it is 5 cpl, but I wanted
I wanted straight transcription to get a better rate, so don't quote me on it.
Ok, that's what I have already. Wanted to see if could do away with the
BECAUSE I WANTED TOO,
That's what I wanted to know. Thanks for
your honesty. Anybody else have a different/similar experience?
By the way I wanted to add
I hope that by my initial excitement I did not encourage anyone to make any kind of choice they would regret. If so, I apologize. If you are happy good for you. I was just so excited initially, that maybe I should not have put the post in to influence anyone. Seems like there is an argument going on here and I do not want to say either way. I say interview if you want, ask all of the appropriate questions and then you may check references on a company before you take the job just as easily as they can check yours. If you are a good match, good luck. If not, then good luck in your job search. Not backsliding here, just trying to make amends because obviously you guys wanted a follow up so my comments a few weeks ago must have made an impression. No matter what there is a company out there for everyone, so good luck to all, and I wish only the best.
just wanted to know...
Thanks, but someone posted that if you wanted to see where they worked to check their other posts and you could find out. I don't want to know the identity of people, just if you can find posts of individual people! Does that sound clear as mud to you?!
