I certainly don't see how anyone is supposed to live on what Spheris pays. Even with the overtime which I worked a LOT I never made 50K a year.
Could be but VERY doubtful....
This has never happened on this account before, EVER. In fact, I'm not entirely positive there is even a skeleton crew of in-house MTs for this facility; I believe it is ALL outsourced.
I tried thinking of reasonable possibilities this work sat for 3 days before we got it, too, but I failed. The only thing that makes any sense is as Cynical outlines below.
Sad but true, folks.
The question is, will Transcend just cut us loose on January 1st when our contracts expire, or will MDI-MD start letting us go 1 by 1, starting with PT and working their way up.
Guess I'll wait for a phone call to know for sure.
Don't trust either Transcend or MDI. I think MDI will be forced to let people go, or perhaps that was part of the plan. Remember on the conference call how evasive they were when it came to specifics? That is what tipped my hand. TRUST NO ONE.
Busy does not mean disorganized. I would rather work for a busy company sm
than one with no work. I started with Keystrokes 3 months ago and it is the best thing I ever did. I have a steady paycheck and plenty of work.
If you have work at TT, which is doubtful, without putting in MANY extra hours and NOT putting
the correct number of hours on your timesheet -- that is stealing work from the other MT's ! Also you are giving false information on your timesheet, which TT will eventually get into trouble for allowing you to do -- just like the Q got into trouble!
You are obviously taking the only halfway decent dictators from other MT's. Makes me sick that the leads/supes/mgmt-type people transcribe and take the cream of the crop from the MT's ! That should NOT BE ALLOWED by TT mgmt AT ALL !! !
It is DEFINITELY going on tho. TT management, you need to STOP this practice and share the fairly decent dictators with EVERYONE !
When I was hired on a number of years ago, I was told that TT had 35% ESL's. What a JOKE and untruth !
Sorry I got busy.
Got busy. I was going to get to it :)
Two of my accounts are super busy and two others are moderately busy.
I work for 3 companies and 2 out of the 3 are very busy. One is slow but I just use that money for free money. You have to keep looking. There are companies out there that pay their people a halfway decent salary and have work. Am I making what I made 5-10 years ago, no, but I can pay my bills and have money leftover. I am also looking at a fourth company to replace the slow company as I think they are probably losing the acct I am working on. Keep looking, there is work.
I have been as busy as I can be. There has been
overtime available the last 2 weekends and enough work in the system to not have to check back later in the evening. If it weren't for the fact that I got the flu over New Years and it is still lingering, I could have really cleaned up
I do know somebody starting cherrypicking my primary at my last job. I would have to sign in at midnight and hope my favorite surgeon was up late dictating to get anything remotely lucrative. Otherwise, there would be like 40 echocardiograms in my queue. When I asked management about that, they said the census was low. Funny, I guess people can stop in and have an echo anytime they want as apparently no one has to admit these people or order a cardiology consult on them.
These managers don't really get that you know your account and WORK FLOW forwards and backwards after sitting there all day, day in and day out. I think you may be right to call that BS as I pretty much knew immediately something was going on with my account.
Let's just hope this issue does not come if/when anyone ask you Q's during all the MQ legal issues
So busy MT'ng?
I think what some are trying to bring up is the fact that legally,if for some off the wall reason, you'd have to answer say...privacy,HIPPA whatever questions in a deposition, then you would be in breach of contract with one of your jobs.
Not sure anyone's miserable or even cares about your situation, just bringing up the obvious, which seems your way to busy patting & grooming yourself up, to worry about. Keep on with that great life!
My sentiments exactly. One has to look out for themselves because God knows these companies donot look out for you Wouldn't you like to know how much the company actually gets per line plus they make all these promises to get an acccount on board and to get an MT to work there.
You are absolutely correct dear. It's no one business if you work for 10 companies. that is your perogative. More power to dear. I am on your side all athe way.
I mostly agree with you, Busy...SM
I'd really like to see some kind of seniority benefit come into play. :)
Yup, Busy. I'm not complaining, but...! NM
Is it possible their MTs are too busy working why they
That's a possibility and I do know companies who have MTs that want to keep a good thing for themselves and I can well understand it
Maybe they are just so busy and need another MT and the job posted is not yours. sm
That could be it. If you are that upset, call and ask them.
I hope things work out for you!
I agree with Busy
I agree with Busy's approach. Although I left MQ (new PS who was clueless), I did the right thing by MQ, gave them two weeks' notice, worked as hard as I could right up to the last, and sent thank you e-mails to my WFC and PS. I agree with Busy that there are many, many choices out there for many, many needs. MQ no longer met my needs, so I left them in as decent and professional a manner as I could.
I have never had low work at MDI... very busy
all the time. I guess different people have different experiences. My experience with MDI has been a great one. I really love it there and would be happy to give you more information via e-mail
Dictaphone has been busy....
and I have yet to run out of work. The only time it was slow was on the 4th of July (which is not unusual considering it was a holiday), but I have not had any problems with running out of work OR management. I've been with Medware now for almost 6 months and REALLY like it!
Maybe there busy learning their new
I think someone posted before that they were getting like 9 new accounts. So, maybe everyone is tied up and can't really take a coffee break. I'd be stroking those keys too if I was making 9.5 cpl (their starting rate per one post). I'm glad there's at least one company out there that pays well. I really don't think though that someone working there for only three months could really have anything bad to say. I think someone else posted that KS promises lower health insurance premiums soon so that is a good thing.
Busy and happy and not here much...
just passed my first 3 months at Keystrokes....and it's STILL a great company! And as I have lots of work, I'm not spending as much time reading the boards... I agree with previous poster...seems like if an MT expresses that they are happy with their position, their company, or even their occupation, they open themselves up to being bashed by folks who are apparently unhappy about something. I think this board is a great place to vent and I'm glad it's here...but at times there's a lot more bashing than support going on.
I never stayed busy....
I worked on an ortho account and they kept running out of work, so I quit. They had way too many MTs in the typing pool. They do not assign the MTs doctors and you are in a pool so the work is on a first come first serve basis. Good luck! Not the job for me.
I'm sorry-been really busy today!
I will email you in a few
You must not be very busy, because you are always on this board.
My accounts at KS are very busy. nm
If you are rad, you should be busy not slow. sm
email me. I will help!
Wet noodle busy here too--sm
Yup, I did that too--beat myself up, that is. With the exception of one dictator being a bit difficult to understand, which I would think they would take into consideration, I know there were no errors in my transcription. I proofread and double checked everything. So, I finally decided it was their loss. I am definitely glad I have a job with a company I like. I've weathered growing pains with them before as they have weathered and supported me through life changes, so I would imagine we will be okay:)
Not running out here...I have been really busy..
Same here. It has been very busy on my account. sm
I am very happy there and glad I took the plunge.
Extremely busy... sm
It might be because they have been extremely busy with transitioning a new account.
Busy, working on day off too.
No complaints here. Going to get work done and put money away for the times it gets slow again, and for Christmas.
Yes, I have. She is very busy but I would follow up. sm
If you were contacted for an interview, I would definitely follow up on it. You could have slipped through the cracks with the holidays. They have a large account coming up that they are trying to staff and I could only imagine how many responses those job postings receive to weed through. Your resume obviouly stood out to get contacted for an interview. Definitely follow up on your original contact for an interview. I am extremely pleased thus far.
no I'm too busy correcting the
mistakes, reformatting, deleting stuff the dictator did not say, adding things he did say, and thinking about using the hot keys to have my brain turn to mush. But I'd rather straight type any day.
Well, at least the PR guys will be kept busy... SM
Rewriting the Acusis flyer: *Acusis is an average MTSO, and so if you're an average hospital with no big expectations for your medical records, give Acusis a try.*
*If you're not expecting very much from your MTSO, Acusis and their barely average MTs will not disappoint you.*
maybe we are just lucky that we are busy..nm
No, actually I don't - I'm too busy trying to survive to worry about
You need a reality check, girl and you still haven't said what YOUR name is. Credibility, you know!
I think she was responding to Busy MT'ing not me!
re: Ms. Busy Bee Mt'ng,Amen!
What is that phrase??? Oh yeah, me thinks you are "not all that" Busy Mt'ng and if you are, you cheapen yourself by singing your own praises. That back of yours must be black and blue by now.
If you don't care what anyone else thinks, then quit shoving it out here ok? We don't, we DO not, and it seems only you DO.
Does'nt take a rocket scientist to see where you come from....brings flashbacks (WAY back) to junior high.
NOW, if we seem contrite, jealous, envious, all about us, etc...just following in your footsteps....get OVER yourself already and get back to your oh so busy MT'ng
Hey! Too busy with Thanksgiving and company
We have been TOO busy on my account. On incentive pay for
three weeks now due to increased volume and TAT demands. The other account I do backup on for KS has been asking for extra help as well.
This is my final stop for radiology transcription. I have been here over a year and feel appreciated, well-paid and busy.
My accounts are always busy, never finished
I have more than enough work, if they are over-staffed it must not be on all accounts
I have been very busy the past month
I'm on a great account that is always busy - sm
It is a hospital in Maryland and has very easy docs. If you get hired, maybe they will put you on that hospital account. Super duper easy. Very few ESLs. I am making my line count is 5-6 hours and I have been on the account for 10 months.
I would keep the pedals for now and move on. If they are too busy sm
to get you set up to work, they are probably too busy to want their pedals returned. At least that way, if you keep them, you will have something for your 2 months of sitting around waiting!
If they use Indian MTs big time, why am I so busy?
They may use some, especially on weekends, but is not normal, and NEVER has editing been at 3 cpl.
It may take a few days...they are EXTREMELY busy - SM
They just had multiple new account start this week and things are really crazy in the office. I would give them a few days, and if you still don't hear anything, it may not hurt to contact them. Good luck. It's a great company.
yes very very busy will answer thursday NM
Busy since noon doing everyone's rejects
Yes, they are extremely busy in the office - SM
They are constantly getting new accounts, which means they are hiring a lot and are getting a ton of resumes sent to them, so it might take them a little bit of time to get to the all. Also, they just replaced their HR person, so it is a little hectic now. I would definitely give them a call. They are all very nice in the office, and I'm sure they will help you. I have been there for almost a year, and it was the best move I ever made! Good luck!
Nope...I have been very busy the last few days...
