    Without MTs, companies would not exist. You and many others have no regard nor respect for hard-working MTS. You can't take it with you. I feel sorry for you. Do the right thing...and, you know what that is.
    Do you know if DTS outsources?
    Yes, DTS outsources a LOT. NM
    Thanks. Do you know if TT outsources overseas?
    OSi outsources, pay is never on time
    and don't go there. Good luck.
    spheris outsources also nm..


    I agree 100%. Wonder if she outsources her

    What a horrible American attitude to have. Perfect sample of why we are all going downhill in a handbasket.

    Anyone know if Axolotl outsources? nm
    SPI outsources and Medical Bazaar does too. nm
    Does anyone know of DocuMed outsources overseas? nm
    I believe I believe Cymed outsources overseas also...sm
    Unfortunately, we are going to continue to be in this same boat as long as medical transcription is outsourced to overseas countries. I used to think it wasn't a big deal (outsourcing), but I can see now that our jobs (and pay) are going to continue to deteriorate as long as outsourcing overseas is in the picture....and it is going to be in the picture for a very, very long time. :-(
    It's never been a secret that Transcend outsources.
    They are very proud of their overseas partners as they call them. The only reason the work is more steady and not all going there is that a lot of their hospital contracts state that they cannot outsource their work. So I applaud those hospitals because without them taking a stand, we'd be having no work..again. I remember waking up in the morning and finding there is no work and this is because the Indians are opposite us. When it's night for them it is day for us. So technically while we slept, they worked and when we got up, there was nothing left. It still happens on occasions but we have gotten a few new accounts so that helps. Also, whenever they ran out of work, people would quit and that would leave more work for whoever was left. It's just the nature of the business I guess. I've gone elsewhere.
    Amphion outsources offshore to Trinidad.
    Do you have proof that JLG outsources offshore? If so, please email the Administrator.
    Do you happen to know which companies HUP outsources to other than MQ. I suppose the best thing
    would be to call HR but will they give out this information. Not sure who to call at these hospitals.
    Every American MT should boycott working for any company that outsources! n/m
    Sheeple!!! LOL - I agree. I wonder if Germany outsources it citizens work out of the country.
    how horrible but Acusis/DRC outsources to India, just what Spheris will do with that easy account. n
    Hope you're enjoying those slave wages you're earning.
    So you guys feel you're getting paid what you're worth with VR?
    I'm not trying to be snarky. I've never done VR, so I'm trying to understand.

    You're happy with your paycheck with VR? Do you find the files to be as bad as the original post implied?
    So you're telling me, basically, they're bad news?
    They offered me 0.095/line and you know - it sounded too good to be true, but I SWEAR the recruiter told me they do not outsource. Oh brother... I just wish they'd be honest. I really don't know what to do.
    Not the OP, but they're supposed to take out all the other taxes as you're an employee with th
    No, they're not losing money....they're gaining!
    If a company charges their clients by the line, I'm sure that line rate does not go down even though the MTs pay does.

    ASR pays about 2/3 normal line rate to its MTs. Their ultimate goal is to have the MTs do twice as much work. Therefore, the client is getting their work faster, but paying their normal rate, while corporate gets that money and the MTs get the lower line rate.

    Whether the newbies want to realize it or not, MTSOs have not increased MTs' salaries in the past 10 years. They still start out at the same pay as the last century!

    This used to be a very lucrative profession. Nowadays, most MTs are considered to be paid at the poverty level. You don't believe me, look it up!
    Hey, you're in luck then. They're hiring! (nm)

    You're right on it! They're just trying to cause panic.
    How can you KNOW what you're doing without THINKING you know what you're doing?
    If you're not doing your job, then you're not earning anything, therefore
    they're desperate because they're sm
    driving away all their employees with the horrible new changes they're implementing.  It's a mass exodus, and they couldn't keep up with their work load before all the departures. 
    We're glad you're gone too.
    The more people that quit, the more work left for me. I love it when people say they can't take doing MT anymore.
    Well, i hate to tell ya, but if you're an IC, you're
    I think they're new. nm
    now we're getting somewhere....
    Great qualities... absolutely. Can you be more specific. What type of communication do you think works? What doesn't? Concern is also important. But how far should it go. Certainly a company needs to be understanding if an MT has some problems, but remembering it is not the company's job to take care of someone, what about when the MT is not producing or working when scheduled? How long do you let it go on? What if the MT has chronic problems. What is the company's role here?

    I can say my boss was ALWAYS flexible with my schedule, but I also made sure that I made up the time and the lines. I didn't abuse it.
    You're better off
    Someone else will appreciate your abilities.
    You're welcome; here's what I can tell you ...
    Spheris' family insurance is with United Healthcare and the premium for family coverage is about $180 per payperiod (2-weeks).

    As far as PTO with Spheris, as a FT employee, you would earn 10 days a year for your first 5 years of service, then it goes up from there.

    I hope that gives you a guideline to go by.
    If you're looking for
    and to be treated well, then you will like TT. They really are the best company I've ever worked, for and I've worked for more than a few. In this business of never meeting who you work for and not knowing what you're getting in to until it's too late, they are a breath of fresh air. They always pay on time, pay what they say they will pay, are very kind and honest. Good luck.
    you're right...sm
    when I was in school, for MA, not MT, my instructor said the ones taking the MT class were just waisting their time. I worked as an MA until I got pregnant, then worked as an MT after my son was born. I'm gonna ride it out as long as it's available. Then, hopefully I won't be too old to do something else!

    I may be an old biddy but when I was 17 it wasn't a computer that was sitting in front of me on Friday night, loser.
    Oh, if you're asking me -- I don't know. I wish I could
    tell you, but I have no idea.

    They're far from going under.

    They're securing new accounts all the time because they're a good company with a fair, honest owner and a wonderful support staff and QA, etc.

    I hear there are one or two bitter ex-employees out there who do nothing but trash the company, and it's totally unwarranted.
