Not just CA - east coast here and 100K is not all that much

Posted By: sm on 2007-05-09
In Reply to: There's 49 other states who are tired of hearing how expensive CA is. nm, - and?

for a couple to make. Many married couples I know make around that it and are just scraping by.

Especially with the east coast/west coast difference
Thanks - I'm on the East Coast too
I'll have to look around here some more.  Thanks.
That sounds about right for East Coast!
So, now you see that the MTSOs don't really make that much off of us!!!!  Maybe we should thank our lucky stars!! 
East coast MT/MEs? Saw Futurenet's ad (sm)
and was just curious as to why they have to live on the east coast.  Client preference?  Time zones? 
They advertised for east coast ME.
That's what I applied for. I have a FT job too, just want part-time ME at night to give my fingers a rest.
I think I figured it out. Is this person on the east coast? nm
East Coast, drawl, cobbler. n/m
Today is the last day for a large hospital on the East Coast.
No doubt about it.
Ham sandwich and lung cancer vs 100K. Tough choice.

I have been to SA and the UAE and, let me tell you, there's a lot more respect for the MTs there than in the good 'ol USA.

Westerners are not held to the same standards as locals when it comes to dress and custom. You don't have to wear a full-on face shroud or eat dog or whatever. Just show some basic common sense decency. You'll be assigned an escort if, for some reason, you need to go somewhere at night or want to go to a certain part of town out of the American neighborhood. (Great little market, for example.)

It's like this:

In Hawaii, I hardly ever wear anything but cut-off shorts and a bikini top. And I don't stand out because most of the people I'm hanging out with wear the same sort of thing. But if I was to go to Manhattan and apply at a Fortune 500 company as a receptionist, do you think I'd wear my cut-offs? No. Everyone would say, 'cover up.' And rightly so. I really wouldn't have a problem with understanding, or adhering to, the dress code.

So maybe wearing jeans and a tee in SA would be akin to wearing cut-offs and a bikini top to Wall Street. It's just not respectful or acceptable. But who can't deal with that?

For anyone who enjoys learning about other cultures, and who can muster up the standard level of respect we show to other cultures even in America, I would heartly suggest being open minded to this type of offer. Heck, I'd go if I were 10 years younger. (If just for the opportunity to hang out and party in Dubai.)
No, not Chicago, bit further east. nm
Most doctors now are from the Middle East or India
so you know they are not going to take these holidays. The Jewish are more involved in financing and banking now.
Venkay applied using East's resume so for Venkat
Where in Michigan? North, south, east, or west? Other clues? nm
On the West Coast
I heard the term typing monkeys, too. Wouldn't surprise me if it were used all throughout the company, they had so little respect for us. I just thought it was an LA thing, but evidently not.
W. Coast is a lot of Asian. nm
Gulf Coast Transcription
I worked for them several years ago. Very small, friendly company and pay was always on time, but have not seen anything recently about them looking for transcriptionists. At the time I worked for them, the account that I was on was just going internet, but we still used a C-phone. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I have worked for GCT for 3 years!  We use SoftMed and Chartscript via the internet.  There is always plenty of work (two major hospitals and plenty of private groups/practices), and, if, for some reason, you run out, they are more than happy to assign more work to you.  Pay is bi-monthly (direct deposit) and on time!  Pay scale is comparable!  Owners are very friendly and down to earth, very willing to work with you!  Office staff is very friendly.  Editors/Trainers are very friendly.  This is a great company to work for. 

Gulf Coast Transcription

Saw some gab a few days ago on GCS (poster was happy GCTer or something like that) and would like some info if anyone can help. 

When you say they have plenty of work, do you mind my asking how many lines you do per day/week? Also, what are they paying cpl? If you don't want to tell me exactly what they are paying you, would you just give me a range?

Also, do they work with you well when you want to take time off or need a sick day?

Thanks for the help!

I know Gulf Coast Transcription will consider it
Yeah Gulf Coast
I have been working for Gulf Coast since February.  I absolutely love this company!  Yes, all positions are IC, so of course no benefits.  However, I find the company to be so friendly and so helpful.  They bend backwards for you; whatever, you need the make sure you have it.  I am transcribing ER notes currently.  I would refer anyone to this company.  They are absolutely great!

Does anyone work for Gulf Coast Transcription out of Ft. Myers, Florida?  If so, what is their pay scale?
Is this ESL account on the west coast? nm
Hey girl, greetings from the northwest coast of Fla. sm
did you take that ASR test yet? I know Spheris has a few new accounts coming on board too but I don't think you'd want to go back to that. Cornerstone was not my cup of tea but loved TWS. If something isn't broke, don't fix it.

Found some good things in the archives, but no information recently... pros, cons, would like to apply to this company soon.  Thanks!
Gulf Coast Transcription
I just found out today that they offshore.  I didn't realize this.

Does anyone currently work for this company who could give some information?  Are they hiring now?  Thanks a lot.

I currently work for Gulf Coast
and absolutely love it!  I have been with them for a year and a half.  I believe they are trying to hire for nights and weekends, as we are needing the coverage for these shifts to meet our TAT.

Does this company have heavy ESL? Do you have plenty of work, what kinds of platforms do they have and is pay per line decent? Any info would help. I checked their website and there is not a whole lot of information.

Looking for information on Gulf Coast Transcription sm
I know all positions are IC.  Just looking for some information from someone working for them or who has worked for them..  Thanks.
Gulf Coast Transcription--any advice?
I submitted an application with Gulf Coast Transcription and was invited to test, which I did. However, that was over 2 weeks ago and I have not had any response. I sent a follow-up email approximately a week ago and still have not heard back. I am very interested in this company, as I have experience with ChartScript and prefer to work IC. However, I am wondering why I have not heard back from them. Even a reply letting me know they are not hiring right now or are not interested would be preferable to no reply at all. There was a telephone number included in the email they sent inviting me to test. I am thinking about calling but do not want to seem too pushy. If anybody has gone through their hiring process and has any insight, I sure would appreciate it. Also, if anyone has any particulars about the line rate, any incentives or shift differentials, etc., I would appreciate that, as well. Please feel free to email me. Thanks!

Any info on Gulf Coast Transcription in Florida?
Given job offer.  Must admit it is tempting to tell MQ where to put it, but I don't want to go from bad to worse.  Any feedback??
It is a West Coast account. Rather not mention names. nm

She and her husband run the account.
