Wonder why these companies post jobs

with low line rates but requiring years of experience.  Who out there is desperate enough to fall for this?  Maybe they should try an overseas job board somewhere.

Yes, both of those companies have enough jobs
For all US MTs, right?  They can hire us all and pay us 9 cpl to keep the work in the US?  Honestly, I don't think so, sorry.  I understand what you are trying to do, and good luck with that.  I just think it's too little, too late.
Only jobs post on Job board!! nm
only jobs post on job board
I was asking a question about a company on the company board and it completely disappeared. It's not on the job board or man board...I just replied to my own post to ask the question again though.
MTSOs must post their own jobs
Hardly any jobs out there post the salary.

I don't think it matters if it's transcription or what.  I can't imagine testing for a company before calling them and flat out asking what the pay rate is for the position being offered.  What a total waste of time for both the company and the applicant. 

...and I personally do not think it is inappropriate to laugh at a ridiculous rate and slam down the phone either.  I think the asshats out there who are offering a nickel a line need to get laughed at and rudely hung up on to boot.  None of this PC politeness garbage of thanking them for their time either if they pull a number like that out of their hineys.  A man sure as heck wouldn't stand for that kind of pud pullin'...why should we?!  

Two companies have offered me jobs. sm

Does anyone know about Intellitype or Fast Chart?

Fast Chart seems more professional.  They said Instant Text doesn't work with their system.  Has anyone tried to use it and succeeded?

Intellitype seems more laid back.  Did I read correctly that I submit an invoice for payment? 

Any knowledable feedback is appreciated. 

There are still plenty of jobs here, but because companies
are competing against companies in other countries (even if the work is inferior) are stuck.   Twenty something years ago I was making 6 cpl/gross line.  I had no experience, no schooling, basically self-taught and on-the-job training.  Today, 20 something years later I'm making 8 cpl/gross line with less benefits.   If we didn't have to compete with India we might have a better wage and benefits. 
companies or the actual jobs
Do you mean keep a list of companies that you work for or the jobs you work on. Any company that i get info on i save so that way i have it if i need to find another job.
why is OSI allowed to post jobs on this site??? SM
It is on their website that they have an offshore office in the Phillipines. 
Maybe it's because they post jobs and never respond to people.
Has anyone actually had them respond to a resume?
You are not supposed to post jobs on the job board
Again...you are not to post jobs on the job board unless you work in the capacity to recruit.
Don't know who this is but they only post jobs to stay legal..

I know exactly how it works, don't bother applying you will be wasting your time.

Did you read XO post? She said 23 jobs posted in 1
I have spoken with different companies from the MT Jobs web site and all
have said they are giving priority to the Heartland employees that have been displaced over someone just window shopping.

They could apply with any of these companies and just put HEARTLAND EMPLOYEE in the subject line and get considered before anyone and they really do not need AAMT's help or a matchmaker company. They can do it themselves. AAMT is one of the reason why they don't have jobs.
Agree. Sometimes I think these companies are just getting jobs done for free. (NM)
Inquiries about companies, jobs, etc. (PLEASE READ)

Please ask about specific companies.  If you are looking for a job, see the Job Seekers board.  There are literally hundreds of job advertisements.  Each one is very descriptive and each one has contact information.  Please research for yourself.  Ask about companies by name but research for yourself.

If you wish, we have a free resume bank for you to post your resume on. 

Please do not post asking for good companies or companies that only do certain types of work:  Look at the job ads on the Job Seekers board.  This information is all provided there. 

If you have problems or issues, please let me know via email.



With so many IC jobs/companies, would think MTs are buying insurance outside
Why do companies advertise for jobs if they have no work?

I lost my job with a big offshoring company a couple of months ago.  I knew it was coming so I started applying for jobs and sending my resume for posted jobs.  The company that hired me responded to my resume submission within 2 HOURS and I was hired the next day.  They had an immediate need, speciality I love, good pay.  Now, a couple of months later I am getting calls and e mails from companies that I applied to months ago.  One recruiter said, I don't know when we received your application, it was probably 90 days ago.  During this same time period I have seen the Q advertise twice, claiming they have steady work (????)  Of course, after reading posts here I would not even consider any offer from them.  A lady from Spheris e mailed and ask that I let her know a time I could interview some time in the next several weeks.

I don't get it.  If you do not have work, why are you posting jobs?  I would consider this a big red flag.

This site USED to post in house hospital jobs - sm
And this is just MY opinion, but I think what probably happened is that the hospitals were probably getting bombarded with every MTSO service contacting them, and individuals contacting them about outsourcing their work, and it probably became too much for them. An acquaitance mentioned one time that she had advertised on this board for on site and specified that it was on site, along with very specific job specifications, and apparently it didn't matter - everybody and their brother applied for the job, including waitresses and nannies who had never even had one iota of medical terminology, let alone job experience.

That's just my 2 cents
You missed my point in jobs knockin post and the
you want.  If you like MTSO you are with now, get more work from there.  If not go after what you want with different MTSO, different job, whatever.  Whats the big deal with askin for more work with MTSO you are with, if you like them.  No different that asking to work for (by applying to) any other MTSO. A real pro knows to get proactive and steer you life in the direction you want it to go.
Are most part-time jobs with companies a few hours every day or are there
jobs that exist where you can work a few days during the week? If you can help, thank you!
Jobs being sent to India - good companies who don't outsource
I've been working for a company for a few years now.  This company has started to remove several job types with greater turnaround times to India from our exiting accounts.  There was not enough work over the holidays to get in all of my hours (I know work is normally slow then), and this trend is still continuing.  We used to have a primary account and a secondary account as a back-up, but now I'm working on at least 5 or 6 accounts just to have enough work to complete my 8-hour shift. 
Any companies offer QA/Editor jobs (employee status)
I currently work as an Editor (IC) for a company that pays a rather low hourly rate ($12). I can only be considered for an increase after working 6 months if I average 300+ lines an hour(to $14). Compound this with the fact that there is usually no work.

I find it impossible to do more than 300 lines an hour while providing feedback therefore, I will never get a raise! I am looking to work for a company as an employee who pays well (hourly) whether there is work or not. I'm very concerned about not having enough work to meet my financial obligations.
Are you guys for real. Where did you these jobs?? I thought I had applied at all ES companies and
not one paid that. I must have missed some.
Let's hear from the MTs that love their companies, their jobs and have a great line count
I love where I work, happy with line count, happy with earning potential.  Love being an MT and working at home.  You???
Howdy! In the last year, I applied and got offered jobs at a minumum of 10 companies
and not ONE single place checked any references - not 1.  Even the one who said they would, Diskriter, never made 1 call. Do you feel lucky??
To Moderator: Is Seroesh Saleem Akhtar allowed to post on the jobs board?

there are various reasons as to why companies post over and over again - sm
For instance, I was working with one company that had tons of applicants. However, they were calling back people they fired in the past and offering them jobs. Other companies I have worked with just like to have applicants on file and if one in particular jumps out at them, they will call and test that applicant even though they may not have a "new" account per se.

And of course, there is the old standby reason - no one qualified for the position, so they are reposting it.
These are the companies I got from a post a week or so ago...SM
MDI Florida, Medical INK, AccuStat Carolinas, Proveras, Sten-Tel, Focus, Chase.
Ask about specific companies in a new post, please.

That post bashed 7 companies, and
went on to say the good companies never get mentioned. Well whose fault is that? I'm working for one of the 7 due to word of mouth. If you had posted about a better company, maybe I'd have applied there. But do you actually know what these better companies are? Instead of bashing companies, you should be praising the good ones. Now that would be helpful!

Otherwise it sounds like you're just telling fairy tales.
See post above--message to all companies (nm)

Post your resume on the job boards. Most companies
want 2 years of recent experience, but with your extensive experience I'm sure some companies would be willing to offer you a chance, but could depend on the disability.  If the disability was due to mental health issues you might have problems more than if you had a physical disability. 
companies that do not post line rate...
In some of these postings (I'm talking mostly about the big nationals here), the recruiters spend LOTS of time talking about what they have to offer but are noticeably silent about line rate. If a company has so much to offer, it should be proud of the line rate it is offering. It always seems like they are trying to rope me in in some way & then will spring the bad news on me once they have a captive audience, like a bunch of used car salesmen.

If I don't see a line rate next to pay/compensation I just substitute embarrassingly low & move on to the next listing.

I've had the thought that the listings should be divided into Big National and MTSO --- and within that, willing to show line rate and not willing to show line rate.

Anyone else?
That may be but if companies can't post ads without company names,
Others will post that work for these companies, there are some great
people that post on this board, you just have to overlook a few.  Unfortunately I do not work at any of these companies, otherwise I would be glad to give you any information needed.  Good luck though!
Maybe because not ALL companies post there. He/She just asked a simple question!
I think the point was to POST names of good companies for all MTs to see,
What happened to my post with an inquiry for companies that have clinic work available in the

mornings (not in the afternoons or evenings)?  I did not think there was anything inappropriate in my message and thought it was on the correct board.  Thanks.

Cherrypicking is when you work from a pool of jobs and being able to reject the worst jobs to those
Monster Jobs and Career Builder usually have a few path jobs. nm
Don't think any do except for those in-house jobs. Some QA jobs are paid hourly. nm
They didn't take our jobs, QT gave them our jobs. The account is now
back in the hands of US MTs, or will be in just a couple of weeks.  
Are MTs that are looking for jobs finding good jobs right now with everyone looking or is it
getting more difficult to find a good job.  I am most interested in jobs for experienced MTs with more than 10 years service.  I wonder if it is better to put a resume on or just keeping applying or what is the best way to go about this.
Look at all the jobs on the jobs boards.
You can find a job and won't have to apply for unemployment. You would be surprised how many companies need qualified MTs! Go get 'em and get 'em now!

Don't wait until the 11th hour. Too many needs to put your hat in the unemployment slot.

What they lost is our gain.

My post should say the post above not the post below, Sheryl's post to be specific. nm

TransTech and Medware, are these companies considered large, medium-sized or small companies? (sm)
It's a "fishing" post. Same post a few days ago with numerous errors
Yikes.. That is only inline with companies like Focus and such. "Real" companies pay their MTs
decent rate.  I make over 5 cpl editing. So, if I got that slap in the face, I'd be outta there.
