holiday incentive pay
...is something I'd like to see
MDI incentive holiday bonuses
I just want to set the record straight. Please read the e-mails from your TL or ROM concerning this.
We do have an incentive holiday bonus and I am very sorry that a lot of you on this post are not aware of it.
If anyone wants a copy of the e-mail please contact Deb or myself at Deb@medicaldictation.com or Liz@medicaldictation.com and we will be happy to resend it.
Those of you who know me, know that we truly value all of our MTs. We have no pets, although MTs on different platforms with different ROMs will get different e-mails about beach parties, etc. I will address this with the ROMs, cause it was a great idea by one of our ROMs.
I hope this clears up things. For the MT with the broken coffee cup, please let me know and we will re-send it.
MDI/Transcend knows that without our MTs MDI would not be in existence. We are very appreciative of all you do and how hard you guys work. You have to remember that Sue and I are MTs also.
Please e-mail me or call me if you want to talk.
Thanks a lot,
I would love to get a card from my company...and a holiday incentive...
Sounds like you have it pretty good. I didn't get squat from my company, and there are times when I do not even get a paycheck on time. If your company is making a profit and able to pay you on time and offer an incentive, and is not owned by some private equity firm that may go under -- you are very lucky.
Yeah, some places pay more per line if you're a CMT (nm)
Really sad where people will readily list places they hated but not name places that are great.
What a wonderful, sharing group of people MTs are. :-(
lmao!! yeah maybe I'm the recruiter...suggesting that my co-worker is the problem. yeah that make
Yeah, yeah, I spelled health wrong -
I am very angry right now and my fingers are taking it out on the keyboard.
Yeah, yeah, AND enjoy!
Been both places
I would say you won't better yourself. Of the 2, I'd choose Spheris but I'm not still there either.
Could you tell me the better places?
What companies are there, if you don't mind, in case I have to look. THANKS!
Most places like you to have in the mid-90s at least. Sorry. nm
Some places will let you do Fri., Sat., Sun. Never saw
There are other places that pay well.....
I'm SE and 9.5 cpl with 6.5 years of experience.
I have done it several places sm
I love TransTech, I MEAN I REALLY LOVE IT. I am IN love with MT again.
places to go
I know several of us have gone to Encompass, Keystrokes, Webmedx, to memtion a few.
sorry i got kids screaming at me right now. Thought I better correct it before one of the high and mighties say something.
no more than other places
and it would depend on the account. As in most cases, I have found that after doing the account for a while and getting used to the dictators, there will only be a handful that really continue to be difficult each time you get them, when you sigh because you know it's going to lower your line count.
Maybe you should look other places for
companies rather than just ONE single board. There are MANY companies out there who don't post ads here, and many who don't post ads at all.
Actually, that is cheap. Most places much more. nm
No, there a lot of places that have two divisions.
I just don't think you see it much in transcription companies. I love the small company feel of MDI.
This is going places it never should be, all over a comma. nm
Few places inside...sm
Dial up: First Choice, Spheris, Precyse only if 37K or faster, and SoftScript.
Satellite allowed: Precyse, TRS, Opti-Script, WebMedX, Probity, and MQ. nm
Here's a few places that have been mentioned..sm..
Accuscribe, DSG, Echo Sten-Tel, Execuscribe (just started using it recently), InTouchMI, MQ, and VanBelkum.
Don't know about Good places, but here are a
DeVenture, MedGarde (supposed to be not goodl), Meditech in Georgia, MTS in Mass., NEMT, Nicholas Transcription of New Hampshire (but no pay until the client pays them!), Opti-Script in Penn, and QED. I do not know if these places are currently paying weekly - other than DeVenture - only that they have in the past. Good luck!
Is everything getting counted the same way? Many places don't
places to work
Hey, just a shout out to all. Of these companies who are the best to work for. Transolutions, Webmedx, Axolotl or DSG. Anything you have to say about line rate, benefits and equipment provided would be greatly appreciated.
Do any of these places have enough work any more?
Seems like all of the big companies are low on work any more. What gives? How are we supposed to make a living?
Where to go for great radiology transcription jobs?? I am seeing 6.5 cents to 9 cents a line... i see .75 to $1.15 per job. Things are not like it used to be when you see per job. That is hard when you run out of work as I just left a place that ran out of work paying per report. Any suggestions where to apply?
Two great places
Transcend and Diskriter. Awesome places to work; no drama, no BS, no broken promises.
I've had two places tell me no
I'm not 100% sure, though. I was told I had to have 2003.
Do you work for these 2 places?
I feel ya...ESLs slow me way down once in awhile too!
Sorry, I have worked several places and
never heard of getting a negative line count for a report. No way would I be working there.
I've done VR at 2 different places now....
Both places, I could see old reports and while I'm seeing all these old reports with ridiculous errors and some just downright mind-boggling, I'm seeing the same crap on my screen for me to fix.
So, I'm talking to my supervisor one day about going back to just regular old transcription and she says to me I've got girls doing 3000 plus lines per day on VR, you'll get there eventually. So I said, With good quality? She said yes, of course....I started looking for work right then. Now I come to my 2nd place with VR and I'm getting the same crap. I see these godawful mistakes and no one seems to care. I've pointed them out and have been told If the hospital doesn't complain, don't worry about it.
If I sit here and make these reports good quality, format-wise as well as content, I CANNOT double my line count and I've been doing this for over 10 years. If I just run through them like apparently every one else is doing, I might make some money....at least until someone complains....then I have no job.
I've since gone back to just plain old transcription. My wrists burn, but I'm happy and making money again. I wish you all the best of luck at 4 cpl, which seems to be the going rate. Good luck!!!!
I need to know which places offer VR only for
the Johnsons and Smiths. The place where I work has any and all on including the Jofannsens, Abuggula, Sharnif and the like. That would be a really dream job to have only the very easiest English. Not happening at my place.
Do most companies provide holiday pay?
No holiday pay?
I do not work for Spheris, but that is the most selfish/ crasiest thing I have ever heard. I hope I don't sound like an idiot here, but is that even legal to have to work on a holiday without getting extra pay (apparently, it must be) ..but, I tell you what, I would be taking off every single holiday. I can understand if you were IC or SE or if they offered different incentives... but EMPLOYEE?
Does anyone who works for DRC/Acusis remember if there used to be paid holidays or has it always been just premium holiday pay? I've only been here since March, but I was under the impression when I hired on we had 8 paid holidays???
no holiday pay at DSG. nm
well, i'm not sure where people on here are getting their information. the new policy states you have to make your line quota 6 out of the last 8 pay periods and be employed there at least 6 months. it isn't that unreasonable
So what's their big holiday?
IC Holiday Pay?
If you are an IC, are you asked to work major holidays? How many do you work? Do you get a special line rate for working the big holidays? I wonder what the line rate is for holiday pay at most companies?
What's holiday pay?
Where I work as an IC, everyone who is normally scheduled for that day of the week is expected to work unless approved to take off in advance. Experience tells me that there is usually little to no work on the holidays, though.
i get time and a half - 13.5 cpl - 6 major holidays
I get the same pay as always. I need to apply where you work.
You negative people just slay me. Did you not get the email from Management about there being FULL management and supervisory staff working the holidays? If they get paid for the holidays I'm sure they deserve every dime they do get. All you have to do (from my experience working the past several years with TT on holidays) is sign up to work the holiday and you will get paid lines and a half. There will be work, there always is. Now whether it's an account that will be your comfort zone will be another question. They can only give us the dictation the doctors dictate. They can't create something. I'm just really defensive when it comes to TT, they've been really good to me because I've been a good worker for them and plan on continuing as such.
I forgot to mention in my previous post...why don't you build up PTO like TT gives? Then you can take a holiday and get paid. Times are lean now and you have to make some sacrifices just as TT has to do I'm sure. Some people think that just because there is a company they are making dollars hand over fist. If I had a company that offered people to accumulate PTO why would I want to give them free money and pay them for doing absolutely nothing? Good luck in finding somewhere these days that will give out free money. Sounds like you're more interested in a handout.
I work for three services; at two I get $.03 per line extra and the third I get 15% extra of whatever lines I've done.
Well work then. The BENEFIT is you work from home. You forfeit some benefits in exchange for others. Get over it. Guess you didn't mention they give you a Christmas gift though. How many MT companies do that for their HOME BASED MT's?
It's the holiday
With short work weeks, you'll likely hear from them next week. Good luck! Great place to work!
I just TAKE the holiday. If they don't like it,
