Hired by them, though start date still several days in future.... From what I was told, editors listen to entire dictation for maximum quality assurance, as company has top quality reputation to uphold (whether MTs on 100% QA are in need of this? or whether ESLs are so heavily accented that it's required? not sure - but it is apparently done this way, which raises a few red flags for me, also, regarding the accounts and difficulty vs. pay per line ;). Thus, that minimum line requirement per hour for editors, as well as the MTs. I sure wouldn't mind being able to make a little more, though.

I'm wondering the same thing...
lots of goodbye emails, dontcha think? I'm a little worried.
I was wondering the same thing.
Seemed strange that no name is attached. Fishy.
I was wondering the same thing when
you didn't say what company WAS giving you problems. Why leave people wondering?

That's why I was hoping that others would chime in. I don't know how folks who are the primary breadwinners in their home are able to make a living here. I'm sure that there must be some who are making good money; that's just the nature of the beast in the workplace -- diverse work experiences within the same organization. I know, though, of many who in terms of the compensation are really in the toilet right now just as I am.
I am wondering the same thing
Definitely not from the United States.
I was wondering the same thing!
Hmmm...inquiring minds want to know!
I was wondering the same thing also sm
but to say your employer has mental problems and she has to work at home BECAUSE she has kids. Kind of a spoiled selfish way of thinking. She should be glad she CAN work at home if she needs to especially if she lives in a rural area (I haven't figured that one out either).
Heaven forbid she would HAVE to work outside and take her kids to daycare or the babysitter! Poor thing she HAS to work at home because she has kids. Some people are just so entitled.
I was wondering the same thing
I sent my resume as soon as they posted the job ad but have heard nothing back at all.
I was wondering the same thing! As of last year, they
I was wondering the same thing. Can only assume
Me too! Just today. I'm wondering the same thing. - nm
Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing
I work for them too and was wondering the same thing?? What gives all of a sudden?? nm
Debate is one thing, and posting is one thing,
but this is getting absurd. I think it must be the same person, otherwise multiples who cannot stay on topic?? Why can't you STICK with the subject? The subject of my post was NOT what your cent per line rate was or is - I could care less- and not how much money you made last year, this year, or in your life, but how silly the comment was that your cents per line rate means NOTHING, that its up to you - some fluff like that. That is just so silly. Again, working for the same company, same account, is one going to make more money being paid more per line? OF course! This is so frustrating and really makes me so tired of reading this garbage let alone posting. Its like a nightmare. And also makes me completely believe that the original company must pay peanuts.
good thing it is a temporary thing sm
because people with your attitude don't stay in anything very long anyway. Nobody has to listen to that crap to keep their job.
You don't know me either. you can say old fart all you want (when did 53 get to be old fart....too funny) but at least I am a valuable employee who can get a decent job!
I've heard great things about Amphion with the single exception being somewhat lower pay than usual - is that true? Still, it sounds like a great company - expect a mass migration of MQ'ers second only to Hurricane Katrina!
Do you like the dictator's?
Wondering about this
Heard from a friend that company deducts a quarter or something like that from each report for the header or template or something? Anyone know anything about that? Is it for all their accounts? Got me inquisitive....Thanks......
Do you get many discharge summaries? Their site says they offer automated DS. The doc doesn't have to dictate and we don't have to transcribe. So one less report type for us lucky folks.
what kind of platform is it and what companyt? i work for one that we have to fight for work also. looking for a PT job myself.
How do you guys know all this stuff? I have worked there for about 1-1/2 years, and don't know anything about what accounts they have other than the one I am on, how they are seeking or not seeking new accounts, or anything about the general atmosphere of the company. All in all, I really don't know anything about them other than I work, send my invoice and then get paid.
Please understand that I am not questioning anything you say, just wondering why everyone else knows all this stuff and I am completely in the dark.
I was thinking of applying to this company and saw where you only worked a month. What made you quit? Trust me, I'm not going to tell anyone; I'm not that type of person even if you don't know me.
But I really don't like the company I'm working for as I still can't get 1000 lines a day and don't think I'll ever be able to as you spend half your time looking up names of doctors, usually foreign doctors, that the dictator wants to send a cc to. They want five or six cc's sent, and you HAVE to make sure you get the right doctor, etc. But it is VERY time consuming even though I have a hard copy also as a lot of the times, I cannot even understand the name they are dictating to send a cc to.
So I am in the looking mode again. Plus I wasn't able to use Smartype which I love, and their word Expander has NO words in it. You have to start from scratch, so it's going to take me forever to build up a list of word expanders. This issue is ALSO time consuming. It just seems like I saw something the other day about WebMedx and thought it sounded like a good company, but I'm sure there is a but with it ........there's always something about a company I don't like. Wish I could find the perfect company.
I was also wondering...
I am testing with them also and was wondering if anyone had heard about them.... any info would be appreciated.
If someone is working as an IC, how can they be required to do X number of lines or work X number of hours when they're not getting any benefits, using their own equipment and/or paying their own phone bill? I think I know the answer but just wanted another opinion.
I do my training with them on Friday. I asked for a bit of information on the benefits and am slightly confused. Are the benefits extremely expensive?
Wondering the same
Most important to me would be line rate, flexibility in schedule (window), benefits, quickest platform and work volume.
Agreement says they don't have to pay you if work is considered unacceptable - What is unacceptable? A blank? Errors?
so, you think they are trying to mislead by putting -Offshore services and their affiliates need not apply for the below given job ad - above their job bank ad?
PDA - thank you, that's what I was wondering. nm
I'm wondering if it is (sm)
I was wondering the same thing. I sent in my resume, but I couldn't find anything on them on the internet at all.
I'm new to MDI and I'm wondering if you
could tell me what LD you use (if you do an account requiring unlimited LD). I'm not able to get a good enough deal through our local company because they specify voice only calls and it would be $$ for a business use account. Right now I'm just using phone cards, but that could add up fast. Thanks for any help!
Wondering about . . .
A to Z Transcription. Mostly wondering if they pay on time or if anyone has had a particularly bad experience with them.
I am wondering about your
rather odd comment of
How can you live with yourself knowing that you were stealing from a company by not even doing the job you were paid to do?
How is not doing the job stealing? Quite honestly, that is the stupidest comment I have ever heard.
Not doing the job may mean you are unreliable or lazy, but certainly not a thief.
Wondering what you all would do
I have a situation where I was told that dial up would work with present company; however, it turns out that it is not working well at all and I am losing money over said situation. I know there are some companies out there that do not mind dial up. I know MQ and Spheris are 2 of them; however, not sure exactly what to do. Sit and wait on current company or move on? Any happy MQers or Spheris MTs out there? Anyone with another company that lets MTs use dial up or am I the only MT with dial up? LOL!
Was wondering, too.
I've been kind of interested in how much a supervisor would make. I had thought something over 50K, too. I should make close to 40K this year as an MT, and haven't really been at it very long. I'm wondering what options (if any) there are for people in this business who want to make more money. If you can't make more as a supervisor, then where can you go other than increasing your production rate?
I've also been considering TransTech. Do Transtech employees run out of work often? Do you have a back up account? Do you jump from account to account? Thank you
I think people ask for opinions here because they don't always trust the companies to give them the full story, along with the fact that this job is very isolating and sometimes it is nice to know if other MTs are having the same issues. What is the purpose of this board, if it is not to network with other MTs?
I also wonder if some don't come on here just to plug their own company. What's to stop them? Don't fall for it! I am a doubting Thomasina.
If the government takes care of their employees so well, and everyone is satisfied, where did the term Going Postal come from?
i was wondering also..
Did you get any other information on this company?
I was wondering...
Were you asking about FutureNet the other day? Was just wondering how that was going, etc. and if you accepted a position there. I was thinking about applying. tia
ok was wondering....
so many people have been led in the wrong direction as evidence by emails I have gotten. I for one don't want to mislead anyone. I have stated my opinion on the company; so far so good. I would like for others to have a place to go to work where they can make money and they are dealing honestly. So many companies have been bragged about on this board, and then found out that this was not the case. You have a great one too:)
Couldn't they simply send an email to anyone who posts on the boards?
Okay thanks. That is what I was wondering.
I was hoping it would come quickly and I didnt spend a lot of time logging into everything just to get to the report. I guess it's like when you get those manuals to put things together. It seems really complicated, but once you just do it, it is definitely easier than trying to follow all of those instructions. I just opened that manual and thought NO FLIPPING WAY AM I GOING TO LEARN ALL THIS AND BE PRODUCTIVE TOO. LOL.. Thanks for the positive.
Received one. SS said the 2nd and 3rd weeks checks should be received Tues. or Wed. They're kind of slow delivering pay. Did you finish all of the files?
Thats exactly what I was wondering about. NM
just wondering -
By what I see, TT seems to run a a lot of ads compared to several companies that I rarely see on here.
I use to be SE with MQ and they provided equipment. Thank you for your reply.
I was also wondering
about that. I get a great line rate and don't expect a bonus on top of that.
If they're making a great profit off their MTs, maybe they should give some of it back at Christmas but it would probably be worth more to the MT if they increased their line rate.
Don't thank the slaveholder for throwing you a crumb! You earned it and deserve it.
