They seem pretty accurate, same as for the past +1 year.
Dang, wish mine would have shown up DD today. :( nm
Darn, wish mine would have shown up DD today. nm
I sure hope I can get mine today from TransTech.
Boy, that would be a God-send right now.
I got mine today. Very pretty and thoughtful.
Well, mine have even less today than yesterday. I don't know what is going on. I know summer te
to wax and wane, but I've only seen wane this summer, no wax.  Usually it's up and down, not steadily down, in my experience.  I'm becoming very concerned about being able to make ends meet.
Part of the problem with variables, and where we are today -sm
is because of how isolated we are, not only from the managers in the hospitals and MTSOs who don't have to see and get to know the people whose incomes & healthcare they're grinding down, but also because other than boards like this, for the most part we're isolated from each other. I'd venture a guess that of however many MTs there are working in the US nowadays, only a rather small percentage read this board or ones like it, and it's nearly impossible for MTs to function as a single, large entity that would get more respect from hospitals, MTSOs, and even our elected government officials.

I don't know if it's actually possible, but I still carry the hope that someday, somehow, this powerful communication tool, the Internet, can be used to once again get MTs what they deserve - even if it's just a small portion of the financial pie. The more money the employer makes, the more the employee should made, as they are the cogs driving the wheel, and it's the squeaking wheel that gets the grease.
It makes a big difference in mine. So happy.
Not happy about WMX changes, but I have to get my butt busy and type today. (sm)

Yesterday I spent waaaaaay too much time on these boards and not enough time on the keys. 

Will catch up on lunch and after shift.  Can't give it up totally you know.

Good luck to all  of us in the industry.  What is good today may be crap tomorrow.  We just never know.

Mine is great
My company, which is All Type, has the best communication I have seen anywhere!  My account manager sends out drug updates and anything else helpful she might find AND answers emails nearly around the clock.  She also stays on IM for instant answers to questions and posts her phone number in her emails!!  I'm never left in a lurch not knowing what to do because I can either IM, email, or pick up the phone.  We all get nearly instant feedback and it's not just a nasty email saying you made a mistake, it's a copy of the mistake and a note explaining why it is a mistake.  I just couldn't be happier!
While I am glad you are happy, the part about
everyone starting at 8 cpl is not true. Thought I would point this out, as this could definitely turn off many applicants.  They might say they start everyone at 8 cpl, but they definitely will offer more than that depending on the applicant.  Everything in life is negotiable, particulary when hiring on.   So, in case there are MTs reading, who are interested in KS, but who won't accept 8 cpl, give it a shot!
When did this happen to you? And what are the initials of your TL? Mine is great as well and wonder
Great post and very true! I read these today and was amazed that someone's first thought was pay
I agree that circumstances can make loans necessary but the OP sounded more like she uses these on a regular basis. No I'll have to learn to budget for the difference, just oh no, now I need to go to Payday Loans and pay 400% interest.

We have the potential to earn what we need to, although sometimes lately it is harder and harder.

Good for all of you. Wish I had seen these earlier.

p.s. Can someone call and tell my BIL to grow up too?
Agree with this. Some lucky ones have great accts. Mine were awful, so I left. nm
support/technical dept is great. i use mine so i think that is just a personal choice and don't
it all sounded great.......until the C-phone part.
I really don't want to get a second phone line.

Good luck to you. Sounds like it is working well for you.
If they are so great why do you work there part time?
RE: If they are so great why do you work there part time?
Because I choose to.
I last used it the second week of January. Maybe your company's version was better than the compa
It seems like a like of companies have a revolving door. I am starting to wonder if it is the compa
Maybe there are a lot of transcriptionists who move around a lot, making it seem like the companies are at fault.
It has been my observation that when work trickles to you while others are getting plenty, the compa
The happy MTs at the great companies
are to busy working to post on the board, that's why you see all the negative. You see I'm on here, wondering the same thing myself!
If you're happy there great, but it is
the worst company I've ever worked for. 
Great if you are happy with status quo and
than that. That's your choice - one could say that this is just a job for you to be with your son, while for many of us it is a career as well. The vast majority of us want more than decent money. Decent money is great, but not progressing any further year by year is not acceptable to lots of us. We want what we deserve. We aren't slacking, we're working hard and want to be compensated accordingly.  I don't mind that you slack as long as you don't mock us out for wanting more out of MTing than you do. That's the point.  i could point out that those with your attitude and lack of wanting more has been largely responsible for the bosses to take advantage and -- punish - the rest of us for wanting our just rewards. As long as so many women are happy with their jammies and just decent money, as long as they can slack off, it damages the rest of us. This is a real job, after all. It really is if you just look at it as a professional.
Very happy. Great supervisor and more than enough work. sm
Pay is good compared to other companies. Plus, pay is always on time.
I guess you must be happy there since you say it is a great company...
I just had an offer and am thinking of jumping. I work for Q now....any advice?
I love it there. Tons of work, great people. I am 100% happy.
Current Amphion employee...I'm very happy. The part of Amphion I work with has no faxes, lists,s
minor demographic work..superb QA and feedback.  Fellow MTs on same account are more than willing to help and now they also have mentor program.  My pay is what they said.  They do have different pay for different levels. 
I just took the test today - thought it was a great test of MT skills.
Amazing that someone wants to pay that well -
As well some of them should! I talked with several MTSO ladies recently, and they told me their contract with the hospitals and clinics they did was for from between 20-24 cents per 65-character count line. These were at different places around the country. Seems like a lot of profit to me?
its amazing to me why some MTs sm
think that THEY are the only ones who are owed a response from a recruiter. To me if a recruiter doesn't answer, they don't want you, move on! For whatever reason. I have almost 30 years experience, not every place I have applied to answers and I don't expect them to.

I do have concerns about MTs who say they have worked for many companies blah, blah, blah. Why are they working for many companies anyway? Sounds like job hopping to me and there is a lot of that in this business. Some MTs think that if one thing doesn't go their way, move on to the next company. Personally, I will not hire a job hopper no matter how good they are! It is not worth it. I will wait it out for someone with experience who has a stable work record.

Recruiter, just do what you need to do and ignore all of this nonsense. Obviously there are some egos that need to be stroked and MTs who can't stand it if that does not happen.

Now if it is a matter of scheduling an interview or start date and then not showing up by a recruiter or trainer that is a different story but that was not the question to begin with.

I have worked for two different companies in almost 30 years and one of the companies I just started. I don't feel anybody owes me anything I can exist on my own skills and if I send a resume with no answer I ignore it and go on. I can only say I had that happen one time and the rumor was the company had no work at the time. They did me a favor.

Ignore the idiots, you owe nothing to anyone!
I only graduated 4 months ago and have been working for a national since then. My QA is at 99.4-100% consistently. I do acute care all day long. It seems that some of these schools need to sit up and take notice if they are turning out such poor quality MTs. I went to Community College to get my MT education.
I quit working there almost 6 months ago because I had a feeling that this type of thing would be coming when SPI took over Cymed. All of the changes that were going on just did not seem right at all. Now I'm REALLY glad that I left when I did! Unbelievable.
Just had to follow up on this because, 2 years later, the US MTs still have tons of work to do and there are several hundred US MTs employed at Spheris. Considering that all the work was being sent to India and US MTs were being forced to quit or being laid off...wonder how this is possible?! This just goes to show you that some people overreact and get their undies in a wad over silly things and blow things way out of proportion. If everyone would just calm down and think rationally, sometimes they wouldn't end up making stupid choices.
Not amazing
It's the difference in gross lines and pages versus 65 cpl pay.  Thank AAMT or whatever they call themselves now.  Going to paint gourds.
Wow. Amazing. You are still trying your best
spinning it around and around in circles in an attempt to make it into something that supports your own false premises? Why do you keep repeating yourself on this and instead address some of her replies and the points she raised like why she stayed or the fact that you are the only one here who has hallucinated blame, misery and loss or your repeated pleas for someone, anyone to help you make sense of it all?

While you are at it, I would be interested to hear your answer to the the notions of pride, being part of the medical community, patient care or maybe one of the most important things you continue to avoid, which is the right for her or any of us to have a different definition of success and/or failure.

I have a question of my own for you. Just where in the devil do you get off being so outraged and condescending toward an MT who told a simple story and expressed an opinion about TTD? What in the world is it about that OP that has gotten you all worked up into such a lather? It's really not a pretty sight.
VR amazing on this end also
The time I started it was exactly the same way and yesterday mine was extremely good, picking up I would say at least 98-99% of all said. By the way, were you working for a company, hospital or just what. I know our place has been on for years now and am thinking some EMR is different from another kind.
May I just say..500 lph...is amazing! sm
That is absolutely wonderful, and although I do not work for MDI, I do know that the VR there is relatively new....for you to be achieving 500 lph is blowing me out of my chair right now. Congratulations (even though I am a tad jealous since I can only achieve approximately 300, and I have been doing it since last winter)! Keep up the good work...and share your tricks!
Webmedx fits that bill, great company, great benefits, great pay and always on time. NM
YES! It's amazing what you can find out there.
Some counties used to post bankruptcy records.  Most states have databases where you can search marriage and divorce records online; property records including title, taxes, value of home, and square footage of the dwelling; criminal records even for nonviolent offenders; obituaries; social security death index; professional licenses; assumed business name records; business licenses.  It's amazing that all that information is just out there to be seen.  I snooped on myself and there's quite a bit out there.  Scary.  That's not even to mention people's autopsy reports and police records that have been posted.  The general public does not need access to all that information.
Amazing. You are training ASR, and they cut your pay. nm.
It's amazing how you criticize MTs

for wanting *money in the bank*, and yet, you want the exact same thing for yourself.  As for the starving foreign MTs, I guess we must not have any starving Americans.  Your post makes me sick and my skin crawl.  You may not be losing any sleep now, but when the tide turns on you (and believe me it will) someday, don't expect any sympathy from your fellow Americans. 

It's pathetic MTSOs like yours that's making this country what it is.  It was your greed and others like you that caused the many problems this field has.
