Cymed or Medscribe in Florida? pls help me decide - Posted By: inquiring

So far these are the two companies that have offered me a job and I have been reading not so nice feedbacks.  Since I have no choice right now and I need a job immediately, I would like to ask anyone if I have to choose between the two? Which one do you think I should choose?  Your inputs will be greatly appreciated

When you hire on and run out of work -- - Posted By: Here's what I did to prompt some action!

I hired on as a part-time MT for 2 different places.  After my training, the first few days went okay.  Then, I hit a snag.  The first place I signed onto had no work - or at least started sending the e-mails about flexing our hours due to light workload, blah, blah.

I replied with my resignation stating that I simply could not afford to wait around while they tried to find work - they knew when I agreed to work and I expected to have it  - I already had another part-time position and thank you very much.

Amazingly enough, I had a phone call and work within about 15 minutes and hadn' thad a problem since. 

It's a gamble, true.  Could backfire, true.  I was, however, as prepared as I said I was and felt that if I tolerated even one day of the low/no work without letting them know how serious I was, it would just feed a lax attitude from the company toward keeping me supplied with work.

Anywho, just thought some of you may benefit from my experience.

Thanks for your help!

Save invoices for taxes? - Posted By: Jane

I have a question I hope some of you experienced MTs can help me with.  I have been working from home and converted a bedroom in my home as a home office after my children left and have been saving monthly utility  statements and expenses to itemize and deduct what percentage my accountant tells me I can at the end of the year.  My question is this:  Do I really need to keep all those monthly statements (lights, water, sewer, etc.) indefinately?  They are really piling up.  I was wondering what others in the same position do.  Thanks in advance for your advice.

God Bless.

TransAm - Posted By: Marsha Drake

My dentist called today and says his daughter is getting information about TransAm.  I know there was a company a few years ago by this name that was a scam.  She has no transcription experience at all, and they are saying they can train her and get her a job.  Anyone hear of this company lately.

Transcend and Precyse jobs - Posted By: Ziggy

Pay offered to prospective employees for VR accounts for these companies is very very low.  Is anyone accepting positions at this rate?  I am wondering how they are finding ANYONE to fill these positions, and if they are finding folks to work for pennies per line it may further undercut MT wages for VR.

PLEASE if anyone works for either of these companies doing VR would like to hear your comments.

Is Etransplus worth taking a test which last 1 1/2hrs - Posted By: Tested out

Hello,  I am currently working with a company but need to change due to lack of benefits.  Etrans has sent me a couple of emails about joining them, but I wanted to know if anyone works there, is it worth it to take that test for 1 1/2 hours, when I could be transcribing.  Also, what type of accounts do they have and do they have anything that is entirely online and does not need a phone line to dial into a system, would love to drop my $40.00 a month bill for unlimited long distance.

Thank you so much in advance for any info!!

Did Webmedx honor your 2-week notice? sm - Posted By: LuckyCharms

I'm on good terms with Webmedx and think it's a great company. I have an opportunity that I'm probably going to take, and I would give a 2-week notice to Webmedx, of course.

My concern is that when you give a notice some companies don't honor that themselves and instead tell you to go ahead and leave early. Has this ever happened to you with Webmedx?

Please respond only if you left on good terms with the company when they gave Webmedx a 2-week notice. The question doesn't apply to those who resigned without a 2-week notice to avoid getting fired or were terminated.

I'm thinking Webmedx is an honorable company and would let me work my 2 weeks, but with the state of the economy, I am naturally concerned about the possibility of being without 2 weeks of pay.

Thanks in advance!
