'Broaden your thought process?' I will not 'broaden'..sm

Posted By: lara on 2009-09-28
In Reply to: Broaden your thought process. Leave to whereever, - they want. MT or other profession. Their SM

my thought process into the wrong direction and accept that MTSOs make more and more profit on expense of the MTs.
Or the VR software sales people who tricked the clients into buying the software by misrepresentation. These are teh ones who cash in, on expense of the MTs.

Broaden your thought process. Leave to whereever,
perogative as to where.  Who am I, or you, to even try to guess where someone else might be happy but they certainly DO NOT have to stay somewhere they feel they are being used as guinea porcines.   
I meant billing process, not bill paying process.. sorry! nm

QA process.....sm
Read on another board that someone was fired because of QA without warning.  Is this new QA system they were talking about at Transolutions?  Very interested in knowing if this is the same company.  Also very interested in hearing from other radiology MTs who current work there.  Would like to know their platform and line/report rate before I waste my/their time testing.  TIA
Want to know the whole process...
You need to send an E-mail to your PS giving your resignation.  If you do not hear back within 2 days, call her (Most likely, you will need to make this call).  They will try to talk you into staying.  You may hear from HER supervisor as well.  Make sure you ask about getting compensated for all unused PTO.  Hope this helps.  (It is definitely a wise move....trust me).
The "easing out process."
  Has anyone been eased out of QT? I believe this is what is happening to me, but if anyone has gone through this, could you please comment...less and less work, having to call repeatedly to get work, benefits problems...etc., that sort of thing or am I just paranoid?  I am not calling and asking to speak with anyone in particular because I know what they will say...it is a matter of not wanting to fire outright but making things pretty miserable...you know what I mean.
How long did the process take
After you send a resume and tested, what happened after that and how long did things take?
Not my experience. Best process I have gone through.
Had the most complete interview any company had given. The test was thorough and not long. The training process allowed me to ask what I need to ask. I love my assigned accounts.
Does anyone know what their testing process is like? nm
Testing process
Just wondering if anyone else thinks that taking an actual transcription test that consists of a total of 6 different voice files is a bit too much.   Three maybe, but six (6)?!!!  IMO they should be able to tell if you are any good at just giving 3 different ones.  Any opinions on this matter?  M
What is their testing process like? NM
process time
I sent my resume Sun p.m., received an email from KS with general info Mon a.m., then they sent an email with a list of questions(which I thought was great) and I immediately replied. They called me this morning to offer me the position! I have everything I need to get started so I just have to wait for HR to send paperwork - probably Monday I will start.
I'm also in the interview process and...
I was told about the new ortho account coming up too. I don't know about other areas, but ortho seems to have plenty of work.
I am going through the hiring process with MDI-MD right now and have ???s. sm
We are not talking money yet and before I go too far into it, I have a few questions.

Do they really treat you as an IC or do they hold you to a schedule?

Is there work available in the early morning, say 5 a.m. EST?

What is the rate range for VR editing and is the platform good?
I actually thought of that. I even thought of trying to go back to MQ part-time!! (sm)
I just wonder about hours at a second company.  I work days (and some nights) with this company.  I have a set schedule but with the no work situtation I've been on the computer at all hours of the day and night.  Right now I have no work, so I would love to jump on at a company #2 and start working.  Do you have to have set hours at your company #2?  Thanks for the suggestion.
The hiring process is very SLOW!
The training sucks! The platform is a joke, not very MT friendly, IMO. I am about a month in and I am looking for another job.

Oh and I have never posted about this company. I read the negative posts and thought the same; all coming from the same person. My experience has been more negative than positive.
to the post above - the hiring process is
EXTENSIVE regardless of whether you are a hospital employee or a regular employee. You have to go through a physical, drug testing, background check, criminal background check, etc.
I'm in the process of accepting a position with them. SM
They didn't say anything about a turn-around time, thought, so maybe this varies by account.  I liked the sound of the account I'm going to be doing and so I'm going for it.  I wish the pay was a little higher, but I always wish that!  I actually didn't ask about raises - didn't think about it.  I'm not really much help, am I? lol
I'm in the process of leaving mine right now!
I have great accounts, great doctors, an awesome editor, and my pay is always accurate and on time. Unfortunately, the owner won't respond to my repeated requests for a raise in CPL. (Not even a yes or no or maybe or in a few months--nothing!) Instead, I'm getting more and more operative reports, which I love, but when you're making far too little, well, sometimes you just have to move on. I'll miss them, but I don't think I'll regret it.
TransTech - application process

Can any experienced Transtech employees fill me in on the process of getting a job with TransTech? Did you need to follow up your application with an email, or is that too pestering? If they contacted you, how long did it take after you applied? Any other things you could fill me in on would be appreciated. I would really like to have some contact with this company.


Webmedx interview process
Can anyone give tell me about the interview process for Webmedx?  I have one soon and am so nervous.  I would appreciate any info out there!  Thank you!
Webmedx hiring process

I filled out the preliminary interview sheet and have not heard back yet.  How long does it take and do they notify you even if you don't meet their needs? 

Thanks for any info.

Application process/testing
I am starting to think that all of this application and testing is a waste of my time! You spend hours at your desk and seem to get nowhere and not even get hired!
ATSI - hiring process
I do not like the recruiting manager/QA manager (initials PT). She really screwed me bad. I have no respect for her. I am glad I am not working there. You are right, I am blessed! Thank you for your input. Have a wonderful holiday!!!
Wondering about the training process at MDI-MD...SM
What is it like and for how long? Do you get an hourly rate while learning? Any info would be good. Is it extremely complicated to get used to the system?
Transform testing process ?

I took the test last Fri p.m. for Transform and at the end of the test it says they will get back with you in 24 hours.  (I'm not expecting that over the weekend obviously.)  That same evening, I emailed the person that had invited me to take their test and let her know I had completed the test.  Just curious how long it really takes them to get back with you and if they get back with you even if you didn't pass.

Thanks for the info.  Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

Tips on the application process
Good morning! Never give any information not asked for. If they don't ask if you have books, don't tell them. There are so many ways of researching on-line until you get the books that you would have been fine. Never, never say what you won't do until you actually talk to the recruiter after testing and they see you are going to be a quality employee. Then when you're specifically asked about scheduling during your job offer, say you'd prefer not to work Sundays. During the application process, when they ask if you are willing to work weekends, I always put yes, but for me this means Saturday. During my job interview/offer, that's when I let them know I prefer Sundays off. Maybe this will help for next time, along with prayer. (Oh please Father, I want this job, please, please, please). lol

I've worked for 3 different companies in the last 12 years and have always received replies to a job opening. The next time you apply, send a followup email the next day on the status of your application. I did this the very next day with all three companies. That is not being pushy...it's just letting them know you seriously want this job and are excited to know your status. Good luck, Dreamer! :)
It was a very long and tedious process
I almost didn't do it, but then did. I didn't realize it was virtually unpassable. I would not give my SS# either, they can have that upon employment, not before. Never heard back from them.
I am sure it takes a few days. The CEO does not process sm
the paperwork, the HR department does. If she has been doing hiring, then I am sure she is getting a lot done quickly, which means that HR might be backed up. I have been a lead for a while and realize that once the CEO steps in, everyone jumps as she moves faster than most others and makes sure that it is all completed.
Considering you initiated the process on a Saturday -- sm
...and there's often a somewhat implicit business hours (or days) when talking about turnaround times, personally I'd wait and if I didn't hear something tomorrow (Tues.) I'd give them a call on Wednesday. But that's just me.
I started the application process, but when they
asked for my social security number on the application, I decided not to pursue it. I don't want to give my SS# unless I'm hired.
I had a very bad experience through the application process.

Went through all testing, passed, had phone interveiw, the told me the liked what they saw, spent over an hour on the phone with the girl, and then she said she would send computer specification info and schedule form,  filled out the schedule and sent it back, and went to buy the computer....

Never heard from them again.  Called, only got voice mail, sent several e-mails over the course of 2 weeks, then I took another job (thanks Encompass... I like my new job), and about 2 months later, I heard back from them saying that they just got my e-mails...  HUH? 


Congratulations! I found the hiring process
quick, efficient and rather pleasant. I took the test on July 3, and was hired on July 5 after my references were checked. I have found everyone to be professional and courteous. The equipment came right away. I've been paid on time, and my account has never run out of work. I'm part-time also; I don't miss nights and weekends. Finally, I'm left in peace to work and don't spend all day reading and answering e-mails. So far, quite good. Welcome aboard!
$1.35 per 1000 characters. hiring process is too sm
daggone long.  they SNAIL MAIL you a tape to transcribe for testing.  DUH!!!!!
Webmedx hiring process - how long?
Once you know you've passed, any idea how long it takes them to get back with you with an offer?

thanks :)
Do they have both a written and verbal testing process? Thank you. nm
Obviously slow in the hiring process. Applied last
week and not a word. I assure you, I am a GREAT MT, and really am surprised not to even hear 1 word other than the format response email. I have since tested and interviewed with 2 other companies, and really can't sit and wait to see if WMX happens to notice my app.
If an MT takes time to go through the testing process...
MTSOs should take the time to respond, even if it's an auto-response, letting the MT know that either they did not cut the mustard or that the position was filled already. It's the decent thing to do. That's the benefit of computers. It's not the personal touch most would prefer, but it sure beats sitting around waiting for an answer.
I think taking the test now will speed up the process.

It has  a place for you to submit resume, so they have resume and test together.  If you haven't heard anything in a couple of days call.

I was offered a job the same day; didn't take it, but process was quicky. nm
Sten-Tel in Mass. and their testing process
I need a 2nd job really bad.  I have worked for Sten-Tel in Mass. before and know that they do not require you to work any certain hours and do not have a minimum line count for you to meet.  They also pay on time.  I applied to them and went through their entire testing process.  I finished this last Friday.  By Monday evening, I hadn't heard anything so I emailed human resources asking for an update.  No reply.  So, I emailed again Tuesday and I finally got a reply back saying that my test was received and that it takes 5-7 business days for me to get an answer and the human resources person said she should have an answer by today.  I wait all day and hear nothing.  I email her again asking about the status and I do not get a reply.  This is really irritating me.  I know I did good on the test.  I don't understand why it is so hard to get back with someone.  Should I just say forget it and try to find somewhere else?  I really don't know of any other companies that are very lenient with the schedule and have no minimum line requirements.  If you know of any, please email me and let me know. 
Transcend hiring process question. (sm)

Yes, I know they outsource, but I also shop at WalMart...

Could someone please tell me what to expect from time application submitted, testing sent in, until you hear anything and what might I expect?  TIA.

I want to get opinions about this testing process I'm in the midst of...

it feels like I'm doing work for the company for free.  Two weeks ago, I submitted an online application and downloaded a test file for this company.  I completed the test file and sent it via email along with my resume as instructed on the website.  I then received an email asking me if I was still interested in the position to which I replied yes.  I then received another email stating they were sending some attachments, a punctuation and grammar test and basic medical terminology test.  I was told to complete those tests and email them back.  I was also asked at that time to fill out a 5 page job application for the company which I did and forwarded all back the same day.

I then received an email two days later telling me I was now ready to begin the second phase of the hiring process and that they would forward me a confidentiality agreement to sign before I could continue testing.  I then received an email instructing me to download FTP software from the website and install it and then wait for the next phase.  I did as instructed the same day and emailed as instructed.

Finally, using the FTP software they sent me several folders with the last phase of the test.  The last phase turned out to be 16 voice files which seemed to be full clinic days of 8 pt. a piece for two different doctors along with pt. appt lists, etc. I felt as though I was actually doing work for free for this company.  If I had to estimate, I would say they are probably going to get about 700 to 1000 lines of free transcription from me if I were to go ahead and finish this test.

I have NEVER in my 16 years of being an MT and working for national companies encountered a test like this.  The most that I have transcribed for testing purposes were four reports totalling no more than 500 lines if that.  Quite frankly, I'm ready to say forget it!  At this point, they have said very little about the job, the pay or company.  There has been no phone interview. 

So what do ya'll think?



Yes, PMC's website does say acute care...in process of changing...sm

This year, Phoenix took on alot of clinic work in the specialties listed in the first post. We are looking for people to work on those accounts via internet. A neuro clinic is starting soon, and we have lots of ortho, some oncology, ent, vascular. Thanks.

Normally very fast hiring process; however, they are flooded with apps right now. nm
I don't remember the testing process as being extraordinarily difficult
but the person I tested with in HR is no longer there. What I liked best was interviewing not just with the HR person, but also actually getting to interview with my Lead, so I got to ask real relevant account-type questions, etc. Pay is not the hightest, but definitely not the lowest - more middle of the road, but at least I always have work, so that's not an issue. I'm only PT, so I don't get benefits, but we recently got sent a new benefits plan, etc., and it looks good to me for FT employees. Give them a shot. There's a lot of bad press here about them, but I think it's old info, nothing current.
The hiring process usually takes a couple of days,
but depending on the account it can take about 2 weeks to actually be working. 
Does Webmedx automatically do an annual review process? sm
I recently had my 1-year anniversary and have not heard anything from anyone about a review.  I don't know if I should say anything to my STM yet or not. 
Much easier and better process of doig this, as I worked at a hospital on ExText nm
web site says MT-s go through a 28 week training process. That's a long time!
Any current Transform employees willing to share testing process and cpl range?
I am trying to move from a local clinic to a national and am curious.  Any info would be helpful.  Thanks!
Some accounts (ortho) have assigned doctors. I am sure that seniority plays a part in the process.
As a new person, you would expect to get the worst of the work, the worst shifts, etc in any other field, so why should MT be different. Rad techs start on 3rd shift, nurses move up to 1st shift, etc. The new guy never gets the best of the crop. That would not make sense.
