In Reply to: Transcend editors - need your input - Long time MT
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.

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
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.
I don't think that was posted...
but I asked my STM and that is what she told me. Everything is based on total lines so if you don't get the total line amount because you use PTO than you won't get your usual bonus.
I am annoyed because I will end up losing money with the new plan. I am scheduled to work 35 hours a week and do around 175 lines per hour. I make the 2nd tier of the bonus plan now but won't make it for total lines with the new bonus plan. My STM didn't sympathize much...something about the bonus being a reward...but what she doesn't realize is that you depend on a certain amount of money with each paycheck and it is hard when all of a sudden you aren't making the same amout of money and you're still working just as hard.
How do you know she's posted
under other names?
Some of them have this posted - sm
on their websites, at least as far as what is expected of the MT. Pay is often based on experience, or what one can negotiate at hire, at least in my experience. Some of them list their benefit package on their website or even on the Job Seeker's Board on this website. A great deal is based on FT or PT. Depends on what you are looking for, as well.
Is that the one posted by
well, maybe, if everyone who posted
negatively READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND COMPREHENDED these words very carefully: *Now, I know readers here may post, why did your friend let it go on that long? With all due respect, no questions/comments please in that regard. There would have been no posts at all, which is what was asked of the poster.
Put your listening ears on and your thinking caps; I know you have them -- MTs are as keen as keen can be, esp. when doing verbatim. HUSH UP and stop the inciting.
LET IT BE-The (legendary) BEATLES.
I don't see where what she posted
And, in fact, on reading it again, she places the blame on MTs who accept these schedules for the fact that the jobs with the benefits she wants are offered in this manner.
Oh well, I guess if there are that many MTs willing to give up having a life, these MTSOs have no incentive to make any changes.
She is saying that if we MTs that work these schedule would stop accepting these positions, then MTSOs would stop requesting people work it. It is insulting.
As shown by the responses, some people like these schedules. No, they are not for everyone, but there are many options out there.
The simple answer to her initial question is:
No. I don't pass over ads for scheduling that does not suit my desires because many times the MTSO will have some flexibility with that. If I find that after speaking with them they have a specific scheduling need that conflicts with my availability, I do not take the job.
Are you the one who posted
at MT Chat? I replied there....
Wow, that job was just posted.
How on Earth did you get all of the facts in that short amount of time?
These wouldn't be posts by the company trying to lure other MTs would it? Naah.... It's just me being paranoid right?
Come on people! Please cut me a break! Whis going to work 2nd and 3rd shift for 8 cpl????????????? Hmmmm?????????
Where is this job posted?
Just curious. The company I work for pays by the minute as well and this may be a different company. I did not see it on the job seekers board unless I just missed it.
FYI...this was not posted by me (nm)
Posted below, getting around
$20 or more per hour with VR. I cannot do more than that because my audio will not go faster.
Have posted before,
if everyone is putting in the way the companies specs are, then the system learns. If some do 1 way and some do another you will continue to have to put the punctuation in.
I posted on CTS below
Paychecks are ALWAYS late! As much as 2-4 weeks late at times. IC status. Download voice off their site, which requires an external player. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone.
The above posted elsewhere and
at first never mentioned about the patient getting the records first. When questioned about the legality of this, then they came back and said the person (older guy) had gotten the records. That bit of information not given until I noticed what seemed to be reading other's records without going through the correct channels.
they should for sure. But, I posted sm
something about a job posting and got reprimanded because I should not mock advertisers! Obviously this website is not run by a very professional MT huh?
I'm the one that posted the 6 cpl at
MQ, and their VR system is so bad that there's no way to do 300-400 lph. I make considerably less on VR than straight typing, even at 6 cpl for VR.
You posted under her post.
If you weren't talking to her why were you replying to her and accusing her of being JMO? Wait. I know. You were trying to stir the pot. Good heavens girl you either need a reading comprehension course or an etiquette course on how not to start trouble. Let it go already and quit stirring up trouble.
8th and 23rd, though often posted before then, never later. nm
The "checks" are actually cut the 6th and the 21st I believe, but it takes a day or two to go through the process of direct deposit. If someone in the office had theirs deposited early, could be because they use the same bank or at the very least being in the same city probably speeds things up.
I'm the one who posted the SE rate...
I just got hired on as an SE.
My BASE RATE is 9.5 cpl. I start earning production incentives at 6001 lines/pp. Production incentives to as high as 2 cpl -- it takes a minimum of 16,000 lines/pp to get that 2 cpl.
I am quite happy with my base rate. I think it is pretty good. Even at 12,000 lines/pp, I get 1.5 cpl production incentive so I can still have 11 cpl at just 12,000 lines/pp.
And this is the first time I have posted.
But you've already got me pegged as someone who "can't a joke and is plain crazy and mean to boot." (I do appreciate the "young" reference, though, since that's something I haven't heard in 30 years.)
Nobody can take a joke better than I can. I just didn't see one. All I saw was somebody trying to be witty and failing; trying to be mean and succeeding.
I'm certainly not mean, but you might want to consult a mirror in that regard.
But if I keep reading and responding to posts in this thread, I MUST be crazy, so keep basking in your bashing. I'm outta here.
Ad posted from Moretti about truly being an IC? (sm)
How can you truly be an IC when all work is done through an FTP site? The only way I have worked with an FTP site is by having files assigned and sent to me and I sent them back. Files were assigned to me and had to be done and sent back by a specific time. Has anyone ever worked with FTP on their own schedule? TIA.
Most definitely. I posted mine and had six
job offers from smaller MTSOs within 10 days. I wondered why I never saw any ads from the smaller companies. That's why. They'd rather research their own MTs than to be inundated with hundreds of resumes from unqualified applicants.
I posted the same thing in regards to
freedom of speech and the Administrator banned me for a week!
Disclaimer: I am not the same lol as posted above and
I have no affiliation with or knowledge of OSI.
Fallyn has never posted here before.
by the same OSi management personnel who has been posting the annoying I love OSI and OSI gives a bonus postings on here all week.
Yeah, I saw that AFTER I posted...SM
I happened to see the monster message pop up and posted without even seeing what else is going on.
Unfortunately, typo-spotting is something you just have to expect on MT boards.
