the MTSO has a right to post here.
I love the fact that we can post on this forum confidentially. Although we may not think it is professional for an MTSO to come and express their feelings…they are entitled to it. Sometimes people just need to vent whether we agree with it or not. Maybe they have no one else to talk to. I would never bash any company that I have ever worked for other than the *lack of work*. I have worked for very professional companies. I guess I have been lucky. My bosses have been very vocal. If I make an error I get feedback right away. I am an MT and I am very proud of who I work for, as I know if they have a problem with me or my work they would come straight to me about it.
Maybe that is what this MTSO should do. It has to be difficult having someone bash their company. You just need to take the posts lightly. People are going to say things no matter what. You just never know who is posting what, which is the benefit and crappy thing about an anonymous board.
You have people who love to and people who love to . Only way for anyone to truly know anything about a company is to try em out for themselves.
THIS IS A POST OF AN MTSO...s/m
an MT would never write this.
I have heard that clients pay up to 18cpl.
When and how did they reduce their pay????
OOPS! SOrry, that post above should say from MTSO not MTSO2! :) nm
Great post! Keeps us all grounded on what the MTSo has to put up with.
As an MT, IC for years, I have never had to rely on anyone but myself and am grateful for that. There will always be a place for me in this field as an IC, as I stick to commitment. Keeping my word is important to me.
I have thought about venturing out and hiring a few MT's to help when my workload gets busy, but after trying it once realized I do not have the patience. Thank goodness for the MTSO who has the patience.
Good luck with your new hires.
As I *said* in my post body, it IS awful that at MTSO cm
would not pay. I agreed with you on that. If you want me to grow some guts, as you say, sorry. Throwing the term demonic around when forewarning someone is just a little unnerving. Perhaps I was just not ready to envision demons and evil first thing in the morning. LOL
As I said before, I do agree with you that this person should definitely be held accountable for her actions. It is sad that our profession has come to this. I hope your friend gets her money back 100 times over and that this MTSO is put out of business as soon as possible.
So obvious "Not KS". Why would another MTSO post
in a thread about another MTSO? So full of BS. We're not stupid; just underpaid.
My post should say the post above not the post below, Sheryl's post to be specific. nm
I learned a lot about MTSO from her post..not a job for me every..I'm definitley a worker bee.
From above post. Oops, meant my MTSO support
See post below about noncompliant MTSO - this pretty much sums up Midwest - nm
It's posted right on their website under Tech. Requiremts. Not the first MTSO I've seen post t

It's a "fishing" post. Same post a few days ago with numerous errors
You are not allowed to post their link on this site. Post

Read Spherson's post below, who admits, in the post, they do pay it.
Peachy, your post is interesting, but my post now is irrelevent but
A few weeks ago I went to my clinic where they had recently implemented EHR or EMR, whichever you call it, and the doctor's back was to me the whole time he and I conversed because his nose was stuck in his laptop. To me, it felt a little more impersonal, but I understand he was doing what he had to do, but it seems like the bedside manner may go to the wayside if the doctors can't even look at you when they are asking you questions or you are speaking to him/her. I know this is relevant to your original post, but just an interesting fact that I had not anticipated. Anyone else experience this?
This is why I NEVER post my cpl. I'll post the range of
what the company pays, but NEVER what I make. I know that I make more than probably 70% of the people there, because they know I produce a client ready report and that I can do anything they throw at me. We don't have levels, but I guess if we did I'd be at the highest level. Telling how much you make isn't so bad, but when people know what company you work for and then what you make that isn't a good combination. The ONLY people I have ever discussed what I make with, are my husband and my MTSO owner. Talking about your salary/pay is enough to get your fired in lots of companies.

This post is in regard to the post w/ the heading below
Nothing is closed. Anyone free to post or not post.
One post was another "run" type of post and the
the recruiter. Once you are in with the company, the recruiter has nothing to do with you or your job. I want specifics about problems with THE JOB, not the recruiter. Specifics such as no or late checks, line counts being messed up, no work, taking bennies away with no explanation. Things that matter, not the recruiter.
everytime you post, where ever you post
unless you go through an anonymizer, your IP address can be traced back to you, even through the guises of this web site. There are web sites you can find on the internet to do this for you, or if you are 18 years old and like to hack, it's an easy enough thing to do.
I post a pay range, DOE; however, most don't post..
I wish some MTs would start thinking about the business aspect of the industry. For example, this is a public site, so go to Google or another search engine and type [the co's name] and per line, and voila! now everyone knows how much you pay your MTs.
Post removed, you can re-post.
My employer verifies the hours worked because I am
logged in on their server. They know when I log in and they see the motion of the reports. Prior to that, it was the same thing. With one company, I downloaded their work and had it back when I finished one batch and worked nonstop during my 8-hour day. How did they verify that? Because they knew my work ethic and I would not have been able to do all that and provide email feedback to the MTs had I not been working. Not everyone in this industry cheats their employer. I know few that do. Some of the QA staff I know are the hardest workers I know.
As far as the poster above you, I am not naming companies that pay by the hour mainly because many of these companies do NOT advertise. I have been an MT for over 30 years so know quite a few companies and I can tell you that the better companies pay by the hour and because we constantly are getting resumes from QA staff looking for companies that pay by the hour, I can tell you that you will not see these companies advertise often if ever. We have a resume bank of QA who are looking for hourly pay. It is sad, but we do.
As far as the companies that pay by the line and push for the numbers, you can't have quality and quantity both if you have 100% listens. Something will suffer. A mixture will get you a decent count, but I have seen several companies that only count the reports and want you to do so many reports per hour, which in reality is no way to look at it at all. It's about work type, American or offshore MT, new MT, ESL, degree of difficulty of the doctor dictating, how many blanks, if the QA has to retype the entire report (which yes does happen) and you have to feed it back to the MT correctly. It's about quality and some companies are seeming to lose sight of that, but when they start losing accounts because of that, they will get the picture at some point.
I work with some of the finest MT/QA people in the business and we all take pride in our jobs and work quite hard. I have seen some pretty poor QA in companies that pay by the line (I was a manager for one). Something is lost in that method of payment.
I still feel good QA should pay $30/hr but it is not going to happen unless a company values their finished product to the point to restructure their entire payscale. Some of the MTSOs do not charge enough and want to scrounge on pay to both the MTs and QA. Now the offshore MTs want more money and they are charging it.
I suspect as long as we do QA on people, something is going to have to give in the future.
As far as VR goes, I think the bottom line there is still up for grabs until it has been out there long enough to really assess how much the pay really is to the people doing it.
No, after I read a followup yesterday that said there were apologies and answered Michelle, I realized that and someone said to just get back to work and they were right.. even an apology was too much, plus it would look like I was just tagging along after JMO, which is what you are accusing me of now.
I just didn't understand where the posts went, it was odd, and I wanted to reiterate some things (the point I mentioned earlier, about seeing BOTH sides), but I see it really doesn't matter WHAT I say, you've already made up your mind about me and my motivations without even knowing me. Why am I explaining myself to you? I dunno.
It doesn't matter. Good luck to you and don't worry, God will take care of/deal with me, and I ask him to bless you all too.:)
TO POST ABOVE, AT MQ 6 YRS....sm
Would you please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I "really" need information.
This post should have gone under OP.
WHY DOES MY POST
On Greenlight Transcription keep getting erased?!
WHY DOES MY POST??
mine got erased too..I asked a question about eTransPlus and now it's gone???
Oh my.....I didn't know Wal-Mart had "greaters". I thought they were greeters! I am sure they are hiring though so you should do well there.
Why don't you sign your posts? Are you also the one that said SoftScript is the worst? Wow....there a lot of worsts out there. Guess we will all starve.
Will you post when you do?
Are you a SS transcriptionist? Will you post your acknowledgement of e-mail?
It gives YOU something to post about right?!
What else would you post about?! LOL
I like your post!!
To Can't Say: Regarding your post below about
Can you say which recruiter told you that Transcend was buying MQ?
Where did you see this post?
If you post their name they probably won't get any
resumes. This way they'll probably get a few, but hopefully the MTs will be wise enough to turn them down.
Another good reason not to respond to a blind ad is that it could be the company you are currently working for - or you were working for (LOL).
I appreciate your post...perhaps I used....sm
the wrong word of undercutting, but when I became an MTSO 9+ years ago......a national was charging 13-18 cpl to the client and so I went ONE cent below that, 12 CPL.....and I get the work, have had clients for all this time...and I work for a national part-time....
Thank you for taking the time to type all that....much appreciated!!
And you might want to post
your message in reply to the correct message. I am not oops.
I have only posted one message in response to this person.
Anyone could post on here and say they are from
Whose to say that poster posing as KS Team Leader or such is not someone specifically out to do KS harm?
For crying out loud, people -- just someone with a mean streak and nothing to do can get on here and cause harm. And the reason they can cause it is because most people on here will believe any post they read.
Now THAT is sad.
sorry about my post above, was
I think they are trying not to post here except
Still doesn't make any sense at all to come to a public forum and ask these kinds of questions.
I'd be reluctant to hire someone who had no more IQ than to do that.
PS: Just saw the post below, anyone do QA for them?
Thank you for this post!
Your post is 100% correct--disgraceful disrespect for the MT whose skill, experience, and expertise keep transcription companies in business! Unbelievable attitude. Thanks for your post--it is 100% right on!
PS to above post, sm
The accounts are teaching hospitals, acute care, and clinics etc. A mix of ESLs and non-ESLs. Not easy unless you really know your stuff, but good accounts. Good luck.
See my post below -
My experience was different but also bad!
Where's your post?
See post below from 9/27
titled 'Is this weird' - I was talking about Shapin. That may just have been my experience though.
Post the hos name here, someone may be able to tell you where it went.
