might be becoming the heir to the throne of MQ in terms of how it treats people.

Not webber, but
I have worked on several platforms and they've all been faster, honestly. They were also internet programs for large and small companies. I am a Transcriptionist and not a computer/internet geek or IT person so I do not know the answer to the problem, but I do know that it is the slowest I have ever worked on. Otherwise, the company is WONDERFUL! But, that's not what pays the bills. (oh, and the PTO could be better, but with the affordable insurance, etc, it's pretty decent. A single person would be in big trouble if they had to have an operation or get sick and have to miss work for a while to recover. But, unfortunately, that is what medical transcription is coming to. I made twice the money I'm making now many years ago. Kinda scary.

I agree - Not really a company to trash because in comparison they are the best, but the platform needs work!
To Webber
Do they still require working one day each weekend? Any Monday through Friday? Any first shift?
Thanks for explaining, webber. nm
Why do you stay there? (I am not a Webber BTW) SM
I don't understand MTs who stay with companies they obviously dislike. Move on.
Sounds a lot like the Webmedx conference calls.
Whew - sounds like Webmedx dodged a bullet by letting you go. sm
You sound over-the-top dramatic! It is the Sloppiest trasncription rules I have ever seen - sic

Good luck somewhere else.
sure sounds swell. Sounds like 2350 ln/day @ 4 cents/ln=$90./day
in order to figure how many line needs to be produced to make $500 per pay period. ie, how many lines an hour needed per 8 hour day --at your rate.

So say $450 a week would be $90 a day.
For example, if making 4 cents a line,need 2,250 lines a day, 281 an HOUR (to listen through and edit) to make this great wage of $90. a day FOR ALL THIS SAME SKILL, TO KEEP UPDATED WITH CHANGING MEDICAL COMMUNITY. nope Better at Jack-in-Box Pass it up.
What is Webmedx FL? Webmedx itself is located in Pittsburgh & Atlanta. nm
Sounds like it and it sounds like you must tell them when they will be and no change them. Wonder
what you do when there is no work. Well, there will be a lot of problems with this whole plan if they dont get things straightened out with this no work situation.
Webmedx ad apply at Webmedx or Transhealth ? (sm)
Apply to one address if you need equipment, another if you want to use your own?  Does this mean they are still acting as 2 separate companies?   Can anyone explain this?
Webmedx?? Why do you say Webmedx is foreign??
Sounds like I'm the same age as you!
Sounds like she was trying to -sm
make you quit - probably because they overhired and have too many people. She probably thought she could bully you out the door and have one less person to have to deal with. I wonder if she treats others like that too.
I bet so. Sure sounds like them!!
Sounds like
SM - Sounds like you...

must know this owner pretty well to be bashing him this way.  How is it you have come to such an opinion?  Did you work in an office with him?  I would be very anxious to hear more of your scholarly declarations such as the answer to ending world hunger and obtaining world peace?  Please, tell us more oh "wise" one....

exactly what I was trying to say! It sounds like they sm
are on the right track! Good luck to them.
That sounds exactly like OSi.
sounds like mq
There is always someone telling everyone what excellent accounts they have, perfect sound, TONS of work....hmmmm....well, I guess it's nice that SOMEBODY is going to be able to pay the rent cause it sure ain't me.

Sounds about right, maybe even a little low. nm
Sounds low to me (sm)
I made $3.00 page several years ago.  With wages lowering each and every day for the MTs, maybe someone else would like to share their thoughts.  Good luck!
It sounds like they are not
very technical-savvy if they need MTs to come in for training! I'd be looking elsewhere.
They can only say no, but it sounds like they can't...
...afford to lose you. YOU are in the catbird seat. Ask for the raise. Really. Do it, and best of luck.
Sounds like BTS in MA. sm
They will take 6 weeks to send you a paycheck for 2 weeks pay, trim 30% off your line counts to supposedly cover headers/footers, and stiff you for your last check if you leave. Leave while you are ahead if it is them.
wow. Sounds like you been there, done that. Thanks for

This sounds like a
Sounds like she might need some
Sounds like
Sounds like a really nice gift. Mine must have gotten lost in the mail LOL
Sounds like
it might be what they call a vacation -- I wouldn't know really though, haven't had one in so long.
Sounds like...
the company I work for now meets those criteria.  Email me if you'd like.
This sounds exactly like the what the
well trained office staff is supposed to say to negativity about the company. I worked for TC for awhile and learned the ins and outs. If you don't mind being overworked, underpaid, all the cherrypicking going on and don't question anything then this is a great company to work for. Not to mention if you are on the CEOs good side and work in the office you get paid trips to Disneyland for your whole family, and can give the MTs as much grief as you want and nothing is said. But if you do mind all this stuff, then as the first poster said run as fast as you can.
Sounds like....
OMG! Sounds just like MQ! lol
Sounds just like what my sm
husband has through work only the deductible is 1000.00 for in network, 2000.00 out of network. No payout until deductible is met,except for office visits. Unfortunately, only one of my doctors is in his network. None of my specialists are. And, the PPO network is very restricted. But we do have prescriptions. It used to be John Deere Healthcare. Now it is United Healthcare.
It sounds rather -
Thank you...that sounds better!
I could definitely live with that! I'm glad I asked more questions. Is Carlotta nice to talk to? That's who I would be speaking with and she seems nice. Do you get samples or are able to see old reports for the ESLs or any difficult dictator? That helps a lot, too. Thank you!
sounds like maybe........
the police should get involved in this case.  Too bad I do not know her, or I would definitely think about getting her and that other lady SOME jail time! Would serve them right, and then throw away the key!
Sounds like one to me
Sounds like
the same company I tried before this one, trained 1 days, worked 2 days, both with no work and quit.
It sounds like
somebody already figured the lines to be subtracted at 133 . . . is that gross lines from the original counting method? If so, then you would need to figure it based on 65-char so as not to cheat yourself. It could be quite a difference, especially when considering the weekly or monthly amount.

Also, if it were me I would tell them that my 65-character count line rate is higher than my gross lines rate (by at least 2 cpl), and that that is standard practice, which it is.
This sounds more like something

The button mashing and burping sound sort of childish.  JMO.

Sounds like...
Sounds like the same one I worked for. Trust me, don't walk, but RUN away from these people. She does everyone the same way.
ER sounds like the best bet then..
If you can type that much more on ER, then why bother with acute care? I myself like acute care better, but if I could make substantially more money with ER, I would just go with that.
Sounds like D&L
Beware, that is how that whole scenario started with them....
This sounds about right
That sounds like a lot more than

That sounds more like you are a control freak and this person also must socialize with you.  Hmmmm, makes me wonder.....  Get a life!!!!  The OP is struggling with a line count she's been doing for three months, so what gives????  Do we need to know about your loyal employee and social entertainer?  Not really!  

P/S:  By the way, don't need you to hire me.  I have my own accounts. 

It sounds like they have been
treating their ICs like employees and got in trouble for it. I've never been an IC, but I suspect they want to continue to impose rules on their people that are not allowed, so if you are already having to follow rules about when you work and who else you work for, I wouldn't think it would make a difference to you, would it?
It also sounds like the HMO's - so why not get -
Sounds like sm
You aren't really working OT in the sense. So you take 12-15 hours to get your job done, but you are really only working probably 8 or less. If you're literally at your PC for 12 hours and not getting the job done, then wrong profession for you and you are being dishonest and lying to the company about your actual lph, on which they have to base the OT rate by law.
sounds the same...
scarrrry. So many people speak highly of this company, yet, obviously, we've haven't seen this.
Sounds like MDI-MD. Sorry. (nm)
