7.5-8 cpl -see post below for 9.5 new hire

Posted By: Nuther MQer on 2005-08-21
In Reply to: Here is what the recruiter told me - Sunflower

I don't understand it! Someone else said they were just hired at 9.5 cpl and the production plan was different. If this is MQ's idea of making things more consistent ----- well, I just don't know! They are going to lose A LOT of people at this rate!

Please post your name so recruiters know who to NOT hire.
If you want a company who doesn't care about quality, you must be well aware already that you can't provide any.

Wal-Mart is hiring.
I agree with your post. I hire them too but the co
I just worked for did nto appreciate them. I know they are out there and go that extra mile. I want to find a company who appreciates their MTs and QA staff and who will instead of trying to get them to kill themselves recognize them for what they do and how well they do it. Sick of these companies. They appreciate no one.

There are always those who do nothing and try to make excuses for not being there, but for every 2 there are a good 5 who are hard workers and companies clump everyone together into one category, which just is not fair.
The way your grammar appears in this post, TT would probably not want to hire you.
FYI -- you sound like a foreigner to me
Since when does TransTech hire IC status? You might want to post the correct information. nm
Me too. As soon as there is a little extra work they hire and hire and then noone has any. This
goes on all the time.  I get sick to death of it.  I think having 2 part time jobs is better so you have 2 jobs to count on.
Does KS only hire employees or do they hire ICs too? nm
My post should say the post above not the post below, Sheryl's post to be specific. nm

It's a "fishing" post. Same post a few days ago with numerous errors
You are not allowed to post their link on this site. Post

Read Spherson's post below, who admits, in the post, they do pay it.
Peachy, your post is interesting, but my post now is irrelevent but
A few weeks ago I went to my clinic where they had recently implemented EHR or EMR, whichever you call it, and the doctor's back was to me the whole time he and I conversed because his nose was stuck in his laptop. To me, it felt a little more impersonal, but I understand he was doing what he had to do, but it seems like the bedside manner may go to the wayside if the doctors can't even look at you when they are asking you questions or you are speaking to him/her. I know this is relevant to your original post, but just an interesting fact that I had not anticipated. Anyone else experience this?
LOL!!! They would hire anyone, they just need to get
DSG does hire ICs

no, I took their test on-line though...I am shopping around right now for a fair well-known company with a simple format -- I just want to transcribe and be paid for it, none of this tier stuff
Yes they hire IC as well, which is what
I would suggest as this company is not very loyal to their employees.
Do you know if they hire nm
Do they hire FT and PT? Thanks! nm
they either over hire or have a lot
of MTs leave because they have been running ads for several months now.  I would be leery of that.
Do you know if they hire IC's? nm
Yes, they hire ICs.
Why? You want to hire us??

do they only hire FT or do they hire PT as well?
I thought I seen a post somewhere on here that said only FT. I really don't want to work more than 30 hours a week and I know most places cut FT at 32 hours a week. Not that I couldn't put in 2 more hours, but if I had a choice....
Does MDI-MD hire PT
Thanks :)
Also do they all hire from within?
they hire from within if possible. nm
they hire only SE's, which is almost
like an IC or independent contractor. Therefore, no, they provide no machine, no benefits, etc. You pay most of your own taxes too.
I believe they do hire ICs
I just took a position with MD-IT Portland. I am very optimistic about this! It was a much higher line rate than I had with MedQuist, and for now they pay the same for straight transcription as they do for Speech Recognition. They are providing all of my equipment - as I am going to one of their accounts where they do, and it is mostly my favorite work type, ERs.
If you do not do ops they will not hire you.


I hate ops and have never had a problem getting hired and paid decent but this company will not even look at you if you do not all 4 acute care.  I wish I liked ops but do not.  I applied for this company and this was the first time in my 9 years experience that I have had a company turn me down so their loss as far as I am concerned....

They hire both but I don't believe there are any...sm
benefits other than them paying the taxes for you when your a employee...
They do hire for less than that

They hire PT and there is still
8 hours be done on one weekend day though.
So would you hire....sm
Someone to paint the entire interior of your house - as an independent contractor - and allow him to do it any hours he pleases as long as he does some painting every 24 hours?

no, but I would hire
someone to paint the exterior of my house - as an independent contractor - and allow her to do it any hours she pleases as long as she does a previously arranged percentage of my house within a 24-hour time period. I think this is closer to the way being an IC works. At least, this is how it is for me. I have to complete x number of lines within 24 hours, but whether I do it in the first hour or the last hour or anything in between is up to me.
Do they only hire ICs?
Why hire me just to get rid of me?
Bizarre. I don't think that's it but who knows at this point.
New Hire
I have 2 years experience and passed their test the first time and was recently hired. I have heard bad and good. I intend to do my job and as long as I am compensated for my work, it is a job.
do you know if they hire prn?
Why would you hire on as an IC
Not sure I'm following you? 
They don't hire PT
Somebody said they should hire me to do PR. :)
But seriously... I was exactly where you folks are, not quite 6 months ago... working for a company that I really loved, one that treated us all very well and actually kept every single promise they made (go figure), and then to find out we were being sold to another company....

Yep. Some real Maalox moments there, and some real fear and loathing going on in TRS land. They assured us until they were blue in the face that nothing was going to change for us. I do know that a couple of people on my team quit, although they could have quit for other reasons; I don't really know.

Now, some 5 months later, I am happy to report that I'm still sitting here working the exact same accounts, on the same platform, and actually for higher pay. Go figure. I thought that sort of thing wasn't supposed to happen in this racket..... :D

This is why I NEVER post my cpl. I'll post the range of
what the company pays, but NEVER what I make.  I know that I make more than probably 70% of the people there, because they know I produce a client ready report and that I can do anything they throw at me.   We don't have levels, but I guess if we did I'd be at the highest level.    Telling how much you make isn't so bad, but when people know what company you work for and then what you make that isn't a good combination.  The ONLY people I have ever discussed what I make with, are my husband and my MTSO owner.   Talking about your salary/pay is enough to get your fired in lots of companies.

One post was another "run" type of post and the
the recruiter. Once you are in with the company, the recruiter has nothing to do with you or your job. I want specifics about problems with THE JOB, not the recruiter.  Specifics such as no or late checks, line counts being messed up, no work, taking bennies away with no explanation. Things that matter, not the recruiter. 
They will not hire MTs living in CA or CT.
Do they hire ICs or employees?

LOL!!! Of course they did. OSi wishes they could hire 2 MTs
Too funny!
