There WAS one person here who would call you and ask if you wanted the job for that day or the next.
Well, give a call to the person who hired you and
negotiate a higher line rate. You should have not problem since you already started and they know what kind of work you can do.
After I quit, I would call the head person and get a new sm
check overnight expressed to me. I think you should quit. That is not right. Good luck.
Debbie Hood is the HR person -- give her a call. nm
If you want to know the real scoop, always better to just ask. Someone might pay me $20 a report (okay, in my dreams) and someone else something else. I understand when people come here and want to know things a recruiter or HR person cannot or will not tell you, such as quality and quantity of dictation and dictators, reliability of being paid on time and such. But if you want to know specifics of how much per report/line, what kind of bennies, direct deposit or no, etc ... why not just write an email or pick up the phone and ASK?
This is not meant to be rude or anything. I just am curious. When I signed on with a company, I saw posts saying 10 cpl was the ceiling and a bunch of other user-specific information that had nothing to do with what I was offered. I made 11-1/2 cpl AND they paid my long distance. A lot has to do with bargaining skills and what you have to offer.
per his request I told him Time To Call, he called Not That Time, emailed me
Can anyone from the Ohio MQ office give me a contact person and a phone number to call so I can talk
to someone there without getting a lot of other people involved before I find out what kind of accounts they have to offer. I am interested in transferring from my current office but would like to speak with someone up there first. Even an email address of someone would help.
TO KS PERSON re: lag time (sm)
I work in the same group as you but the other hospital. I have been surprised more KS folks haven't posted here at least to support each other. I do feel they are going to get this worked out, I know it is hard on everyone in the meantime. I know I actually love this account - and I have decided to give it some more time. I also love this company - and don't want to even consider starting over somewhere. Just my luck, everything would be working perfectly the day I left! ha! ha! Let me know your thoughts, too....
The last time I was on a call with her
all she did was carry on about how she is a nobody, that she is 'only' the QA manager (emphasizing 'only') and how people in ops delete her email's ----- so that pretty much did it for me, that was the most unprofessional business call I have ever been on in my life, I could not believe that she spent at least 15 minutes carrying on about it. It was supposed to be a mandatory phone call about account specific and she made it all about herself for at least half the call. I gave a 2 week notice and never looked back. Totally ridiculous.
for VR person : 'if it takes less time to retype it'...nm
they should call only part time
They called one day and woke up my sick baby on my off day. I am full time and had not missed any work. I got mad about that but I guess they were just doing their job. But think they should call part time only for extra help not full time.
I gave them the best time to call
The time of the call depends on where your
last name falls in the alphabet. There are 3 different times I believe.
Can you tell me how many hours a part time person is allowed to work. Does it specify that at all.
I didnt quite understand that 8, 16 and 24 hour thing. I thought part time as long as you cut off before the full time hours you can work them.
It is the lady who I call to request time off?
Contact said pay was on time but there's a real language barrier with their 1 tech person. nm
I remember a call like that total waste of time
I know we have clinic work but not sure about the Part time. Call a recruiter. nm
I did not. My assigned account kept
running out of work, and I wasn't trained on a secondary
although I asked. I agree with giving notice, but the workload on the account was so minimal that I probably did them a favor. BTW, everyone was cool about it, and we went our separate ways without any drama.
No choice, it is assigned, & just happens to be less
presents itself, I sometimes cherry-pick as well. Especially if it's late, I'm tired, and my line count isn't what it should be.
Any MTs out there been asked to do overtime on a specific account and told this was mandatory and then when the time came to do that account were given something else entirely? How frustrating is that especially on a Friday afternoon when you would rather not be working anyway! It is also bad enough that the account they do give you has the worst audio in the world and keeps breaking up. AHHH!!! Sorry, had to vent. I have pretty much had it!
Well, as an IC assigned work
That's one reason. Another reason is that its usually first in first out. If suzy Q is sick that day, who will do her work? All of the other employees have their assigned work to do, so where does that leave suzy Q's dictators? Just out of luck?
Who is the lucky one assigned
I work from a pool. I love it. I can pick and choose or I can sit all morning and take nothing; that's IC.
Now as an employee, assigned dictators could work but what if that dictator is on vacation for two weeks? Do you get someone else's lines and take work from them?
It should really be first in first out. I have my own accounts and I guess considered a small MTSO. I do the work myself though - no subs. If I had subs, I'd have them do first in first out even if that meant a different dictator every report. That would be fair for TAT.
If you want just one particular dictator and then the work runs out for that day, do you then start taking Suzy Q's work or do you sit and wait until tomorrow?
Do you see how this can get really hairy for an MTSO? They need the work done within TAT and can't spend that valuable time worrying about whether or not you are familiar, making the best lines for your pocket, etc. It's not in this business to worry about the MT, the MT worries about themselves and how good their skills are and can perform the job handed to them.
One of the reasons the hospital I worked for outsourced was because they were tired of the work getting backed up when one or the other of us lonely 2 transcriptionists God Forbid needed a vacation day or two or three or maybe a week or two.
I'm not trying to bash you, I just want you to think about their side of things and how no one would want the mumbler or the ESL, so how is that fair to that person who is assigned that ESL?
On my account, I have one doc that I am assigned to. My main priority is his work for that day. If other MTs are out or busy, I can be asked to help them out. It is hit or miss. Last week I did 10,000 lines (my hands were killing me) just helping out for the MTs on vacation.
The other account I work on is a pool, so I go there when I am done with my assigned work. This week, my doc is out and I am only working in the pool. It is backed up and getting further behind, and it is mostly very short jobs (20 seconds), so I much prefer my other account.
I understand there are some new docs coming on, so hopefully this will pick up.
I love having a few assigned docs since I get to know their style and makes my job much easier.
Don't you think it depends on which acct you are assigned to?
I have a couple accts but don't know if either is the notorious one that supposedly has all the demo screen work. One acct I have is definitely more involved in demos than the other, but overall not so bad. Just wondering if it's a case of which one you are stuck with? Just trying to think of some ideas of why some like it and some hate it. Also depends what you are used to before working for Amphion, since you can't help but compare it.
are you assigned specific jobs?
If the work is not assigned to you, then someone is cherrypicking...nm
assigned work followup
I would not have cared so much had I not already worked a FULL month of overtime. Also, it was radiology which I cannot stand! If I wanted to do radiology I would have kept my other job. Not only are these short and do not give lines, they just stink. Just my opinion. Sorry all MTs who like doing them, I do not.
How does assigned work = employee?
I have my own clients. All that work would be considered assigned work; there is no one else to do it but me. And as for the MTSO I work for (and the individual docs, for that matter,) it does not matter what they assign me to do, they just cannot dictate how I get it done or the hours I work, right? I want to be totally clear on my understanding of this. Thanks.
I think it is one person. I had a few print outs from a few weeks ago and this person even capital
I have had a positive one. I have been with Keystrokes for 3 months and am very happy.
I printed them to show my manager but she told me that there are few bitter people out there and no one can do anything about them. My manager said that everyone can tell that it is the same few over and over again, for Keystrokes and a few other companies as well. Time to move on Ms. Anon. I cannot think why a company would go through the trouble of getting IDs and getting you installed just to ignore you after that. Doesn't make sense, does it? Are you sure that't the whole truth? You keep saying truth but it sounds fishy.
Exactly what I'm talking about RUDE! You are a very unhappy person. A happy person does not
respond in such a way! This is the reason SS has such a bad name.
You are assigned "x" amount of minutes every day, you work that out between the
two of you. IC status. Pay is on time every two weeks, but there is a long wait before you get your first check. After that, it's smooth sailing.
You must not be one of us who logs on their assigned shift only to be told...
to stay off the system as the work is too low. Nice thought though. I'd really LIKE to do my job when I am supposed to but I have no control over when they tell us ot stay off until the afternoon and you sit there prayer there will be work then.
With the KS ortho accounts, each doctor is assigned to an MT. sm
I have 3 doctors that I am responsible, some only have 1 if they are high volume. Easy system to use, great docs, great lead MT. Pay starts low at 0.08 but goes up after 90 days. There are no ESL on the ortho account I am on, which has around 40 doctors. The downside is the first week. The accounts are overwhelming with instructions at first, but once you have it all down, they are great!
When going from IC to employee I realize that you must keep an assigned schedule but
does that mean if you are scheduled, for example, 8 a.m. to noon, you cannot move away from your computer for any time at all? I am used to being able to get up and down when I have to and I am wondering if being roped in to certain hours will prevent me from doing this. Can anyone tell me how it works for them with having a certain period of time you are expected to work? TIA!
meaning that some accounts have assigned doctors...
because C-phone accounts are cumbersome...and assigned
I think she means she's the only one working on the accounts she assigned to - sm
I know I sure feel that way sometimes. Of course, everyone jumps on the last day or two of the pay period and now, (crickets)......
I am not a hateful person but that person screamed at me for 45 minutes. sm
She said all transcriptionists are idiots.
I work for Keystrokes and have assigned doctors. I'm very happy. sm
I believe you can get overflow work if your doctor does not dictate on any given day, if there is any overflow work on that day. My pay has always been on time. I highly recommend them.
They use ExText, min. of 500 lpd, you get assigned mins. of dictation, make your own
WEBMEDX- Assigned acct or pool and how is the platform?
No experience, but was told that work is assigned, no pools, and it's still 8cpl as an IC. nm
I wasn't hired for 1 work type, but told them I like OPs so that is what I am assigned. When I r
out of ops, I usually stop unless we are out of TAT on other jobs because I do not want to take other people's work. I do not think I should get paid less for that.
Yes, call waiting works. I also have call forwarding from my home line
Can you say where you work if you get assigned docs/accts.? I'm tired of this pool garbage/left
Some accounts (ortho) have assigned doctors. I am sure that seniority plays a part in the process.
As a new person, you would expect to get the worst of the work, the worst shifts, etc in any other field, so why should MT be different. Rad techs start on 3rd shift, nurses move up to 1st shift, etc. The new guy never gets the best of the crop. That would not make sense.
Easy platform, assigned accounts, always plenty of work. Great OM and boss. nm
You can call it greed, I call it feeling like
I am back in the 80s with the money I am pulling in. SS, retirement check and my paycheck, cha-ching. Not planning on taking it with me, never. Love to travel and have 4 places planned for this year. High maintenance lady here. Ta-Ta.
I'm lookin for part-time work (about 3-4 hrs daily) after 13 years of full-time, anyone know of a
company that is hiring flexible part-time? I'm starting a career in real estate but don't want to totally quit transcription, but I think most places require 25 hours a week and I cant work weekends, as real estate sales are the biggest on the weekend with open houses and people off work to shows homes to. If you know of a place I'd sure appreciate the info. Thanks!
MDI-Maryland is an excellent company, pay on time all the time, great line rate.
I left also because I went out and got my own client(s).
They are very nice people.
The only negative I can think of were the e-mails from the owner say work, work, work, we are out of TAT.
Other than that, which is very minor, it was a good experience.
