Me too. As soon as there is a little extra work they hire and hire and then noone has any. This

goes on all the time. I get sick to death of it. I think having 2 part time jobs is better so you have 2 jobs to count on.

Does KS only hire employees or do they hire ICs too? nm
When you hire on and run out of work --
I hired on as a part-time MT for 2 different places. After my training, the first few days went okay. Then, I hit a snag. The first place I signed onto had no work - or at least started sending the e-mails about flexing our hours due to light workload, blah, blah.
I replied with my resignation stating that I simply could not afford to wait around while they tried to find work - they knew when I agreed to work and I expected to have it - I already had another part-time position and thank you very much.
Amazingly enough, I had a phone call and work within about 15 minutes and hadn' thad a problem since.
It's a gamble, true. Could backfire, true. I was, however, as prepared as I said I was and felt that if I tolerated even one day of the low/no work without letting them know how serious I was, it would just feed a lax attitude from the company toward keeping me supplied with work.
Anywho, just thought some of you may benefit from my experience.
I work M-F only. They can hire
PTers to do weekends like they've always done for years and years. I don't like this new trend of Su-Th/Tu-Sa. It's completely unnecessary when there are so many out there looking for PT weekend work.
Does Transtech hire to work on VR?
I am so SICK of VR I'm jumping ship.
I'd like to know too as we can seem to keep steady work, yet we are always trying to hire more.
If someone knows why they keep hiring more people, let us know. All I can think of is that the MTs they have keep quitting due to the lack of work, it's a vicious cycle. Somedays, they holler for help, you get in there and work hard, and then the next thing you know, we're out of work. I say STOP HIRING and let the MTs you have who want and need the work to do just that. I'm so sick of the feast or famine concept there. I'm job hunting. This stinks. They obviously advertise because they cant keep good help. That's my guess!!!
Which companies hire for VR work?
I would like to go back to doing VR work. I think I am more productive with it. Who is hiring for VR work, are they good companies, and do you feel more productive doing VR versus straight typing? Thanks
Work here now, wouldn't hire on here now
I work for Spheris now and am doing okay, but I wouldn't hire on here now as I don't think I would get the deal I have now. Also with speech recognition I have to wonder if the workload will be enough for the employees we have now. Most of the good work goes to India and I would never work for another company again that sends work out of the country.
Insurance is crappy and expensive.
This is a marginal company to work for if you are already here but not something I would sign up for if I were looking for a job now.
it's not illegal to look for an IC that will work when THEY NEED THEM to. Why hire someone to wo
it's not illegal to look for an IC that will work when THEY NEED THEM to. Why hire someone to work morning when you need nights for example.
Why hire someone to paint your house blue when you wanted orange?
Why hire a male stripper when you wanted a female stripper?
If you need someone for certain hours, you can request that person or IC to work those hours or not get work. Simple as 1-2-3.
Why would transcend hire? There is no work now.
This was longer ago than that and they were able to hire New Yorkers. I don't work there, either.
Does WMX hire PT and/or offer clinic work? nm
If they hire you to work on a specific account
Sounds too controlling for my taste.
I have seen many companies who want to hire OP people to work from home!
Do they hire for one specific work type, say OP notes? nm
I wonder if they hire US MTs on new accounts and then get rid of them and send the work to India
after it goes through SR or something and the system learns from the US MTs.
Does MedScribe in Florida do clinic work and/or hire
Can anyone tell me if Administrative Assistants is a good company to work for and if they hire IC
Are there any companies that hire emp status and let you work sort of a split?
I would like to work 6 hours during the day while kids are in school and then about 2 hours in the evening. Are there companies that will allow this? Do they have affordable benefits?
In my state, if they hire you full time, then do not provide the work you can draw unemployment -
You would have to talk to someone in your state, but I was able to draw partial unemployment while still working in Georgia. I had to report in each week how much I made and they gave me partial benefits. To qualify, you had to have been hired full time.
LOL!!! They would hire anyone, they just need to get
DSG does hire ICs
no, I took their test on-line though...I am shopping around right now for a fair well-known company with a simple format -- I just want to transcribe and be paid for it, none of this tier stuff
Yes they hire IC as well, which is what
I would suggest as this company is not very loyal to their employees.
Do you know if they hire nm
Do they hire FT and PT? Thanks! nm
they either over hire or have a lot
of MTs leave because they have been running ads for several months now. I would be leery of that.
Do you know if they hire IC's? nm
Yes, they hire ICs.
Why? You want to hire us??
do they only hire FT or do they hire PT as well?
I thought I seen a post somewhere on here that said only FT. I really don't want to work more than 30 hours a week and I know most places cut FT at 32 hours a week. Not that I couldn't put in 2 more hours, but if I had a choice....
Does MDI-MD hire PT
Also do they all hire from within?
they hire from within if possible. nm
they hire only SE's, which is almost
like an IC or independent contractor. Therefore, no, they provide no machine, no benefits, etc. You pay most of your own taxes too.
I believe they do hire ICs
I just took a position with MD-IT Portland. I am very optimistic about this! It was a much higher line rate than I had with MedQuist, and for now they pay the same for straight transcription as they do for Speech Recognition. They are providing all of my equipment - as I am going to one of their accounts where they do, and it is mostly my favorite work type, ERs.
If you do not do ops they will not hire you.
I hate ops and have never had a problem getting hired and paid decent but this company will not even look at you if you do not all 4 acute care. I wish I liked ops but do not. I applied for this company and this was the first time in my 9 years experience that I have had a company turn me down so their loss as far as I am concerned....
They hire both but I don't believe there are any...sm
benefits other than them paying the taxes for you when your a employee...
They do hire for less than that
They hire PT and there is still
8 hours be done on one weekend day though.
So would you hire....sm
Someone to paint the entire interior of your house - as an independent contractor - and allow him to do it any hours he pleases as long as he does some painting every 24 hours?
no, but I would hire
someone to paint the exterior of my house - as an independent contractor - and allow her to do it any hours she pleases as long as she does a previously arranged percentage of my house within a 24-hour time period. I think this is closer to the way being an IC works. At least, this is how it is for me. I have to complete x number of lines within 24 hours, but whether I do it in the first hour or the last hour or anything in between is up to me.
Do they only hire ICs?
Why hire me just to get rid of me?
Bizarre. I don't think that's it but who knows at this point.
I have 2 years experience and passed their test the first time and was recently hired. I have heard bad and good. I intend to do my job and as long as I am compensated for my work, it is a job.
REMEMBER THE COUNTRY'S UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS IN THE DOUBLE-DIGITS PRESENTLY AND BE THANKFUL YOU CAN FIND A JOB.
do you know if they hire prn?
Why would you hire on as an IC
Not sure I'm following you?
They don't hire PT
Somebody said they should hire me to do PR. :)
But seriously... I was exactly where you folks are, not quite 6 months ago... working for a company that I really loved, one that treated us all very well and actually kept every single promise they made (go figure), and then to find out we were being sold to another company....
Yep. Some real Maalox moments there, and some real fear and loathing going on in TRS land. They assured us until they were blue in the face that nothing was going to change for us. I do know that a couple of people on my team quit, although they could have quit for other reasons; I don't really know.
Now, some 5 months later, I am happy to report that I'm still sitting here working the exact same accounts, on the same platform, and actually for higher pay. Go figure. I thought that sort of thing wasn't supposed to happen in this racket..... :D
7.5-8 cpl -see post below for 9.5 new hire
I don't understand it! Someone else said they were just hired at 9.5 cpl and the production plan was different. If this is MQ's idea of making things more consistent ----- well, I just don't know! They are going to lose A LOT of people at this rate!
They will not hire MTs living in CA or CT.
