Just be happy it is not your name being dragged through the mud. At least one person is happy on this website. Lots of negativity on here.
Geesh, I'm a dip. lol It should just say...
I took the test this weekend. I couldn't remember whether I took it Friday or Saturday. Duh. It's been a long day!
geesh! Liked their platform.
geesh, maybe they can't keep people-ever think of that?
You are such an angry and defensive person. What? You didn't make your minimum line count today?
Geesh - typo. sm
Geesh. I'm sorry. That should have been 'was notorious.' I just had to have my kids' pet mouse euthanized, so I'm a bit frazzled right now.
Geesh, it was a joke. Just trying to give the OP a
Geesh. Maybe they're growing. Ever think of that? nm
Is it really coming to .08 w/o spaces AND quick TAT? geesh...
Isn't that called "stat"? What happened to getting paid more for quick TAT?
Well, geesh... I guess since I am psychic too I should be able to figure out who that would be..
Some people.. who better to ask than the employees of MDI. I think they would know if they are IC or employees.
oh boy.. I'm gifted, how about "hear" not "here".. geesh.. need a nap
Geesh. They just emailed me tell me that I hadn't taken the test yet..duh
Totally ignored the content of my e-mail asking for details. Well, this at least gave me a second chance to ask. Maybe now they will share the line rate with me. Who knows? I am certainly not holding my breath.
About about paying a "fortune'.. geesh.. time for a nap
Why is it that there is always someone that has to be nasty. Every company, every opinion. Geesh.
Geesh..It's been a long day. I don't think I made any sense on that post.
Bottom line is, best pay rate out there, most of the time enough work and good benefits. They have a lot of happy employees.
Get real. She wont cost co the acct. Geesh
Are you kidding?? You don't get paid for 45 days. Geesh, I wonder if your creditors would wait
that longer to get paid...probably not. You go over 30 days and they start hounding you. I definitely would never do a job that took that long to get paid.
geesh, I thought the main board hosted the nasty trolls
sm small message or see message...geesh..nm
I don't believe you are correct about tha
MQ takes out SS taxes and federal taxes, but not state taxes.
Correct me if I am wrong about this.
Yes, you are correct
I worked for them and one check bounced. They replaced the check, so I decided to call the bank and check to see if there were funds and the bank informed me that there were NO funds. Second time, before I cashed the check, I called the bank, again, no funds. I told her i would shred the checks and I wanted a money order. After that, I quit.
Deb Garrison was not rude to me BUT, the people she has working for her are very rude.
Yes, a lot of MTs quit. And they do NOT pay for spaces, they ONLY pay an 8% allowance for spaces, which is way too little.
Look elsewhere, you don't want to touch this one.
Actually if you want to correct someone...
correct yourself. It is y'all. There is no "a" in "you"...You all not Ya all...brush up on your redneck lingo.
Actually they R correct...
Any word ending in a "y" does not get the - between it and the other word, as in weight-bearing, fruit-bearing. Sorry but I used 2 work 4 the Grammar Police back in 1903.
YOU ARE CORRECT!!!
I see this every day. You are correct!!!! They need to go down. They have a program and I have seen it! They can go in at any time and go down a long list and tell it what TO COUNT and what NOT TO COUNT. Then, they can tell ya'll (because I quit MQ) whatever the heck they want to.
The hospital that I work for uses their platform and we are allowed to see how our lines are counted. HOwever, thanks to MQ, we did lose quite a bit of money thanks to MQ telling our supervisors that it is the "trend" not to pay for spaces. Thanks to MQ, I will probably have to change careers even though I absolutely adore medical transcription. I used to average $19 - $21 per hour. Now, I cannot get past $15.50 on a really good day!
Yes, that's correct.
That's correct, but......
MTs don't have the education/training that a physician does, either, so I don't think it is realistic to expect the same pay for what we do. Don't get me wrong here....what we do is very important, but get real if you expect to be paid as much as a physician!
Actually, that's not correct....sm
It actually states...if you wish to remain ANONYMOUS, please do NOT enter your real name and email address when making posts.. You had me worried there, lol. I had to hunt down the policies to make sure I wasn't out of bounds!!! It also states that certain actions constitute a material breach of the terms and conditions such as (amoung others), Posting material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, libelous, hateful, or embarrassing to any other person or entity as determined by MTStars.com in its sole discretion. IMHO, this poster is doing precisely that. All one has to do is read the tone of her messages. She is disgruntled and wants to get back at ____. I'm sorry she feels this way and I'm sorry she is making this public. I really CAN do without the drama.
And you are correct!!
Definitely is characters and spaces.
you are correct. sm
If they bash, I would sue!
You are correct - sm
You can either choose to have health benefits, (which I don't need since my husband has this through his employer), or you can have flexibility. I am finding that it is very difficult to find an MT position that offers both of these options. Right now, I need flexibility. Thanks for very bluntly helping me to make my decision!
Very well put--100% correct!
It is Web Correct
You are correct. How are we to know you are
Managers on the norm do not speak with this type of tongue. Stop spreading lies. If you are a manager for Keystrokes and this is an indicator of how you speak to people, then I would not work for this company or take the benefits. Please practice what you preach and be a little more professional if it is the company's reputation you have in mind. Management should be a little more discrete and not be posting on a public board. There is a nice way to put things you know. We are not children.
Yes, that is correct!
Synthescribe America is out of Tennessee and Synthescribe, Inc. is out of the Phillipines (they are the ones who ask you for a 3x5 photo of yourself, etc.)
The above is correct.
I believe this is correct
13,000 - 14,500 = .0025
14,501 - 16,000 = .0050
16,001 - 20,000 = .0075
20,000+ = .01
You are so correct!!!
I give you all the credit in the world for having your own accounts. I just got a call from a local hospital asking me to work a per diem job for one of the medical surgical floors. It will be very interesting to see how much they want to pay me an hour versus 7 cents per line. The hospital is only 5 minutes from my house. It's probably worth taking. It might get my skills up since I have never done Acute Care.
No, that's not correct
If you read the handbook it says both lines and hours, not just production.
You are 125% correct.
It is a bump in the road. She will be fine. Has happened to so many lately.
Sorry - you need to correct yourself
Employers only pay 1/2 of the SS which includes the Medicare portion -- they do not pay half of your federal INCOME tax or any of the STATE. I have done payroll for companies. They withhold your federal and state for the employee and send it into the government every quarter but they do not pay it themselves, they pay it FOR you. If they did everyone would be getting whopping returns. I have also and still am both and there is no way that my employee status pays half of my FEDERAL income tax and they do not pay anything to state. Again they withhold it for me and I get a gross and net income on my paycheck total. When I say SS I mean everything that is owed to them, SS and Medicare as they just broke that up several years ago. But you still only pay an extra 7.50 or close to that which is the half of the 15.75 which is the total that goes to SS and Medicare. They have to pay WC and unemployement but that is extra and never comes into figure when you are taking about employee vs IC.
you are correct
about not testing. However, one also is advised not to quit previous job until you are cleared from QA. I expect if you cannot be cleared in a couple weeks, you may not be retained. They expect you to pay extreme attention to detail, to learn from and implement your feedback, to have the necessary skills, discipline, etc etc. It stands to reason if they don't test, they will be more careful with who they hire, and expect more from the outset. They have a great reputation, pay better than many, and I am sure will not let poorly-skilled MTs ruin that.
You are correct about the 70%, but
percentage of ASR was actually more in the range of 75% to 90% with more and more accounts being switched to ASR.
that is correct
Yes, Webmedx has excellent insurance benefits, very similar to that of a large hospital. I just started with them one month ago and I think with a $500 deduct. and a $20 copay, they take approx. $60.00 per paycheck. That is just for me, I do not have any dependents. As far as the pay goes, it is pretty much the same as I was receiving from the company I worked for prior, but they do have incentive pay for the evening and night shifts, along with weekend shifts. So far, everyone there has been nothing but VERY NICE to me. I also heard that they were voted the #1 employer for MTs.
No you are correct
they have are not keeping their word at all
I googled them just now and they have pages upon pages on the web on complaintsboard.com, ripoffreport.com, among others.
Apparently you are not familiar with ALL of the accounts. What the poster said is absolutely true. There are pages of patient names to look through, so not ALL of her accounts are in the system.
You are correct...
I think the software issue rides along because you actually are accessing the software through your own PC and your own internet connection as an IC. I think it would be a little different if the company controlled which PC you used, which sites you used, etc. But in essence as an IC we are using our own equipment to access the site or platform needed to transcribe the file.
I work for an online company where I use an FTP site, but it doesn't cost me anything, and I do not have set hours, quota for lines, etc. I work as much as I want when I want. It makes no difference to the contractor as they have other MTs to pick-up the slack or to cover for vaca, sick time, etc. I am an IC and it works for me. I also have 2 of my own accounts and I actually worked a little bit with the one of them as he wanted to stick with tapes and I didn't want to go digital for just one small account. So, in essence, he kind of chose the method of choice for dictation, but I agreed since it worked for me as well but my line rate reflects that deficit of having to pick-up tapes.
Yes you have to correct EVERYTHING
You have to send the report out as if you typed it yourself. If a report was 98% correct if we typed it, we wouldn't have a job now would we? I love VR, and if I get a 20-minute report that has to be actually straight typed, I find myself doing a little sigh. I would say 70% of my work is now VR. I wished it were 100%, that'd be perfect!
Let me correct you....
I worked part if the first pay period which was paid extremely late. I then worked a full 2 weeks in the next pay period which I have yet to receive. Oh - and I was paid on salary.
you are correct. They said in the sm
email the part of the account that they wouldn't be doing anymore. They also said they are going to put everyone on different accounts on Monday.
Not defending the other poster, but poster probably didn't know the e-mail that went to her wasn't correct.
Keystrokes has always kept its word when they said they will do something.
If what you say is correct, tell me this... SM
If Acusis MTs are now going to be paid what the *average* US MT is paid, can we now get away with putting out *average* work?
I waste a lot of time -- UNPAID TIME -- looking up dumb stuff. Well, no more of that. It would be showing *above average* commitment to putting out accurate and *above average* work... but if Acusis wants to pay *average* rates, that's what they'll get.
And, in actual fact, I believe it's best written as free market capitalism, although I guess a lot depends on whether the intent is free market as a noun or an adjective; a differentiation, I might point out, that VR is not going to pick up, nor will a quick glance at words on the screen.
