recruiting for both sides of the company and placing people on whatever side needed the positions filled at the time.

OP said recruiter was male.

The other poster is correct - your gender is not going to deter you. As a matter of fact, I've been in this business 28 years and I have had male supervisors and managers who have had a lot less experience, less education and less expertise than me, but somehow they manage to glam onto the management jobs - just like in nursing!!! MT and nursing are both female dominated jobs, but the management is top heavy with males.

They *do* have male MTs (well, at least one, me, that I know of)....
...I had heard from a couple of the women I work with that they had received earrings, so I was wondering if I was going to receive them, too. :-) I got a stadium blanket (I think that's what they're called ... a fleecy small blankety thingie, with the ProScript logo on it), which I can actually use, as we've already had wind chills of 45 below zero here this year (and that was before winter officially began).

I agree that the earrings are perhaps an odd choice in that not everyone has pierced ears, but my understanding is that they were handmade by the mother of one of the staff, so it's very nice and thoughtful in that regard, IMO.
Are you male or female?
Wonder how many males there with 15 years experience and 98%+ accuracy are making 10 cpl.
RE: Are you male or female?
I am.
It was 1 Male to 11.3 Females.
As of December 1, 2005, This is non government unofficial survey.
Is JC male or female? nm
MTSOs most likely realized they can't manipulate and exploit most male workers as they have been able to do with women.  (Remember the sweat shops?)  Haven't encountered 1 male employee on these boards.. and my MTSO starts her e-mail with, Hello, ladies!   
Anyway what was the result on the Female MT and Male MT survey?
Oh yeah, Cant find the tread and the results.
Never, ever seen a negative post about the 1 male supr there. only 1, and he is THE BEST
Again, lonely women in need of male attention, whether the guy's into females or not
but that's just me. THat goes for the so junior high comment below. Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make them immature. You have your opinion, I have mine. Deal with it.
Are the office staff male or female? The reason I ask is

that in India women are generally second class citizens.   I'm sure they are becoming westernized, but when people marry in India the wife becomes a possession.

I wondered if the office staff were male and the reason for their lack of social graces is more because of culture than anything.  Regardless not pleasant and doesn't matter why. 

Holiday this weekend was-year-old male Kippur
A friend of mine is a male and owns a transcription company. sm
He has no problem getting accounts and is quite wealthy from it. So, do not let your gender deter you!

His company is RX Transcription in Newtown Square, PA. Give him a call and maybe he can help you.
So you work for free? Typical male response, jerk.
I actually thought of that. I even thought of trying to go back to MQ part-time!! (sm)
I just wonder about hours at a second company.  I work days (and some nights) with this company.  I have a set schedule but with the no work situtation I've been on the computer at all hours of the day and night.  Right now I have no work, so I would love to jump on at a company #2 and start working.  Do you have to have set hours at your company #2?  Thanks for the suggestion.
Not a recruiter...

In fact, no longer work for Spheris, but only because working 20 hours PT in addition to my FT job became too much. I cannot compare it to other nationals as I haven't worked for any others, but it was a good experience for me in many ways; good accounts, good supervisor, pay always on time.

Not every company is going to be a good fit for everyone.

damage control at its finest
recruiter-can't believe she said that. SM
I had one recruiter say to me, because I worked for a big national: "You must not be a very good Transcriptionist if you're working for them!" I said "EXCUSE ME! I have almost 30 years experience and have outstanding quality and can back that up." I told her straight out that her comment really offended me. Needless to say, that turned me completely off on that company and I did not pursue employment there. Too bad. They missed out on a great transcriptionist. Their loss.
Recruiter said they will
I was hired a few weeks ago and the recruiter said that they pay headers, footers and spaces. I don't know if it counting them or not. The platform is terrible and the sound quality is even worse.

what recruiter quit?
As a recruiter
I would like to tell you that I look for blanks on tests. I do not count that against an applicant, nor should anybody else. It is always better to blank a word than to guess at it. A blank says I don't know for sure and do not want to guess. It basically lets a recruiter know that you know when to ask for help.
OR their new recruiter. LOL!!!
Are you a recruiter?
are you a recruiter?
Not a recruiter either
Just a plain ole MT.  Check out their website for recruiting info.  Don't think we're allowed to post names and numbers here.
What does it take to become a recruiter?sm
Boy some of these recruiters!!! Just what does it require to be a recruiter.Just got an email from one and my goodness at the grammar!!! Hard to believe.
That too. It is not a sin to tell a recruiter that you are not
sure. Being honest is the best way. Recruiters are trained in knowing how to evaluate what knowledge you have. The trained ones can tell.
Ask the recruiter
The recruiter won't tell you
The recruiter won't tell you it is difficult to get a linecount. Also, not sure who the new recruiter is. They lost a lot of people when making the decision to train in Trinidad. The company used to say they would never offshore and they had a decent reputation and were a good company to work for until the owner got money hungry. The company had been started by his late wife and obviously her ideals of keeping the work here became unimportant to him after awhile.
Was this recruiter's...sm
 I had a similar thing happen to me recently.
Ex-recruiter is exactly right (sm)
If you are an organized recruiter all of this can be accomplished in a short period of time. All it takes is good organization, attention to detail and professionalism. Anyone who expresses an interest in your company deserves a response.

Recruiter ads
I have seen 1 ad on the boards for recruiters wanted. You could always just send in a resume to the nationals with that information on your resume - that you are applying for recruiter position.


The company I am working for now is actually looking for 2 recruiters.  Please email me if you are interested.


Not a recruiter
I have worked there for 3+ years on the Merit side. No real complaints here. We have an occasional work slowdown on my team, but that is infrequent and only lasted for part of a day in the cases I recall. The benefits package there is one of the best I have heard of in MT also.
As a recruiter, someone who actually has done
wonderful things in transcription does not get a test! People get nervous, PARTICULARLY if they have accomplished high achievements in this industry. If the person had proven herself in the field, then waive the test. She knows her stuff! It would be one thing if she just told you, but I know one woman who has done marvelous things in the industry that actually helped make the industry better for the MT and was given a test and flunked. She knows her stuff more than the MTTest site where she took the test.

No other field would test someone who has proven themselves 100 times over.

You may talk this way yourself, but are you an MT and can you pass a test? I know one recruiter that couldn't pass a simple QA test and told me so. I waived it but I did her no favors by doing so as she was an awful QA person, but that was really not her expertise. To tell you the truth, the only thing she was good at was running her mouth and gossiping. she might make a good professional gossip. I still hired her though and all I heard was how horrible everyone was at the company and this person said this, that person said that and I knew the love life of everyone there, then she complained to me as to what was expected of the QA staff (numbers) during the day. When you spend your time on the phone talking to everyone in the company, you won't make the numbers.

Recruiters need to relax on testing everyone in the field that have a PROVEN TRACK RECORD WITH MT COMPANIES...not hospitals, but MT companies. If they have worked successfully for MT companies and done well, held their job, made a decent line rate, they can do the job for the most part.
Their recruiter is probably one of the two
that I have ever spoken to that are pleasant to deal with. I have spoken to many recruiters and to say that there are just TWO is saying something. This lady will get back to you if she said she would. I have found her to be professional and up front with everything. If she said she had to take care of some things, perhaps something came up in her life that she had to handle. Recruiters are human too. I am sure she will get back with you as soon as she can. She's a nice lady.
Are you a recruiter?
How may someone apply with your company?
Or maybe you are the recruiter.

They used to have the best recruiter
but I can't remember who it was. She was so sweet and would work with you.
the recruiter
was Leslie if memory serves. I used to work for AllType and resigned when I noticed things were going down hill.
The recruiter probably is -
The recruiter made a claim of an extremely high line rate, something like 500-600 lines per hour as I recall.
Recruiter? TTS has no recruiter
who is the recruiter now?
Even the long-time recruiter jumped ship!
Recruiter is nothing
QA/sup was very rude while I was there. Never in my extensive professional life had treatment like I had there. Maybe your account lead will be better, but mine made my life a nightmare. I was so sorry to taking the leap, but went to another national where I am very happy.
Who is the recruiter at MDI-MD? - sm

Does Dorothy always put the ads up?  Can't think of the recruiter's name who I spoke to within the last year - wondering if she is still there.

What are part-time/full-time lines per day?

How do holidays work - I know this has changed lately - do you still pick 3 to work per year?

What is the best platform they have - c-phone or inet?  Either way you work in Bayscribe, I assume?  How much demographic junk needs to be input by the MT?

Thanks for any info.

She is not a recruiter.
Some people just do not stop to think before they type. She has most definitely misrepresented herself and reflected a poor light on KS.
Could be a recruiter
who may be attempting to collect a fee for forwarding qualified applicants.
The former recruiter was let go. (sm)
Don't know about the Onc platform(s).
To Recruiter below

There was no reply to message link, so I had to make a new posting.   Recruiter, I let the ES recruiter set the time - I am available every morning 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and all day on Monday.  She set the time for 11:30 A on Monday (my day off), did not call, did not email and when I emailed her on Friday to find out what happened, I did not get a reply to that followup email.   This is the third time that something similar has happened to me in the past month or so since I started this job search.  I've been in this business a long time and I remember when I used to get a phone call within a few minutes after faxing or emailing my resume.  Services had honest to goodness needs for MTs and jumped on those of us with a proven track record.  

You work 9 to 5?   How nice for you.  I have never had a 9 to 5 job in this business.  If you or someone in your family ever has a medical emergency, you will be reminded that the vast majority of us in healthcare do not work 9 to 5. 

It sounds to me like you are the one who needs to grow up.  If you are recruiting MTs, you need to work your schedule around them and you need to be professional and follow up.  I was more than accommodating to the ES recruiter and she didn't even have the courtesy to reply to my followup and let me know whether she was okay or not.  Unfortunately, it sounds like your attitude is typical of the recruiters today.
