Too many companies invested money in VR, and they are going to make
sure they can use it, no matter what. So even if it can only type if, and and the correctly, it will be put into VR and the poor MT that has to straighten that garbage out will be paid a big fat amount of around 4 cpl. These companies are the greediest bunch I have ever seen. None of them are worth the ground they sit on.
It depends. If they invested in the the time and expense to hire you, sm

to train you, ship you equipment, set up your software etc. and you did not give it a fair chance (at the very least 2 weeks) before quitting, I'd say they'd be extremely gracious to even consider taking you back.

If you worked for them for awhile and gave the platform and the company a fair trial, and then ended up leaving, then yes perhaps they might hire you back.

All you can do is ask.  JMHO.

They outsource heavily and
make no bones about it.  They are located in suburban Nashville, TN and generally make no bones about their ties with Indian transcriptionists.
Instead of only applying with companies that advertise heavily,
try Googling for transcription companies, perhaps in your home state, and go to their websites. They usually have a way to apply on their website, and they won't be receiving 300 resumes the same day yours arrives. Send your resume to several and you might hit the timing right with one or two, or perhaps they will keep your resume for when they do have an opening.
SPI heavily offshores to India and Phillipines.
FUNNY !! TT not up-to-date with software either -- just into getting VR going heavily now n/m
I agree. Some accounts heavily staffed for quick TAT. nm
Do you think all the headers and footers aren't getting counted? Lots of places aren't giving
Precyse has had problems with lack of work, too. They offshore heavily.
You aren't the only one, believe me. NM
Aren't they the ones who are
supposedly looking into buying Heartland?
aren't they all going to be
under regional supervisors within a year??? If you can get yourself under the northeast regional supervisor, do it. She's great.
Oh MY aren't you a gas
Why would you care. Bitter? I got a great job by not being hired by them with innumerable benefits and assigned to a nice a/c with great potential.

Don't get my way - do you mean expecting to be paid on time is being bitter and spoiled? What planet do you come from? LOL

And yes SD is said - it's not my fault they auto cap it - boy do you have issues!!!! sd is standard shorthand for said my friend. can't imagine even noticing something like that.
Uh, no. They aren't doing that

The letter I received a few months ago when I cancelled my membership said something quite different.  It had nothing to do with keeping the jobs US based.  It was all about quality healthcare documentation which is important; don't get me wrong there.  However, there was NOTHING in there stating anything about keeping this work here at all.  Instead it was all about the global marketplace and a cop-out.

I personally feel that the bulk of the healthcare industry knows cheaper doesn't necessarily mean better or even close to what is expected.  I don't think all of the jobs are going to disappear.

I have written, called and probably annoyed my senator and any other government official in my state about outsourcing private healthcare information.  India, for example, does not have stringent laws about private information like we do. 

We do have a personal responsibility though.  I have brought this up on other boards, but we need to ask our healthcare providers if their back office is handled here.  If not, choose another provider if possible.  Of course avoiding purchase of everything that comes from somewhere else is virtually impossible, but there are lots of other things.  This may also sound mean, but if I get on the phone with customer service somewhere and realize the person I am speaking with is offshore, I have my call transferred.  Nothing against the person, but I am not discussing my personal account information with someone who is not 100% required by law to protect that information.  Period.  If enough people take the intiative (not saying in this particular way), the gov't and other organizations won't have a choice but to listen. 

Outsourcing globally is not the trend right now.  I really think pulling together can stop it from becoming so.

Aren't they like about $40,000 ???
My car's OLD - only kind I can afford.
And just because you aren't a fan sm
doesn't mean it is a bad company for everyone.
Aren't we all?
Now I know you aren't exp'd - there is SM
no earthy reason to BUY A PDR to look up drugs.  Caught again.
They aren't even in the US - ya think?? *-D) nm
You REALLY ARE NEW aren't you?

Snort...  How naive. 

Look, the really sad thing is that work has really picked up at TT and if whomever the fool is that decided to file this lawsuit had just waited a bit, things on MT Stars would have died down.  Have you seen any negative postings about TT recently?  No, because there is WORK!! 

If you let your anger rule your head, you will show yourself for the fool that you are. 

Sad, truly sad.... 

Obviously, you aren't one of them...
If you had the slightest legal knowledge, you would know that any person can file a lawsuit against anyone -- the claims don't have to be true. Again, enjoy your Law 101 class.
If you aren't happy
why don't you leave?  You seem to know so much, so you must work for OSi.  You musn't be able to get another job elsewhere.
If you aren't using an expander just think how
many more lines you could produce with an Expander and then that would be like gettin a raise.
Why don't you just go back to MQ, they aren't that bad
I was full-time with them and quit for reasons not related to all the new changes, but after thinking it over, I decided to keep some part-time hours because I enjoy the work.

A little snippy aren't we?
No they aren't. They are looking for editors

Is there a little emoticon for putting a finger down one's throat and retching?

Maybe we aren't talking
not sure what kind of rate could result in $4.25/1000 words...but I'm doing much better than that...so far.
I have worked for TRS and while they aren't the
worst company out there, I certainly would never recommend them.  Any time people can't figure out how much their making, it isn't an ideal situation.  The Trinidad issue and how it was handled is another strike against them. 
They aren't outsourcing. nm
Wow, aren't we cynical!
I am working for TT because a couple of TT employees took the time to answer my questions about the company and it sounded like it might be the place for me. I am very glad they were so helpful, because now I work there and I'm very happy. I haven't found any drawbacks to working there. If the companies you have chosen to work for have not turned out well, I'm sorry, but don't assume they are all the same. It is absolutely not fair to try to run down a company's name when you admit you never worked there. I do work there, and the company hasn't asked me to advertise for them. I can't believe you would judge people who go out of their way to try to help other MTs find a good company.
You aren't getting paid? nm
You aren't missing much with sm
Transhealth. Chartmatrix stinks, doesn't integrate well with Word at all (cannot use autocorrect), crashes alot, and hard dictators. Their test dictators are actual doctors on their system. Management and office staff turn over quite frequently. Transolutions last I knew started out at 6 cents a line. You may want to go IC if you don't need the benefits.
Aren't you clever...
I didn't call *myself* 'garbage' - and you know it, but I guess going for the cheap shot is the best you can do?

Your experience may have been wonderful; mine was the worst. The person who originally asked about the company needs to hear both negative and positive feedback.
True, but most of them are, aren't they? They are for me.
Apparently you aren't going to let this go!
Tricky: I asked a while back how far off the line counts are in your mind - 2% 1% 10%?

If its a small discrepancy you might consider dropping it, if its a lot you could find a different job if management can't explain it to your satisfaction.

That said, I'm totally in your corner if there is serious discrepancy here, but so far you have not elaborated how much you think the counts are off.

Aren't we all. Why do you think someone should just hand
My my aren't we judgemental
Well we aren't staying
a very large portion of the MQ staff is leaving, the majority of which as I can guestimate have been with MQ for many, many years, made them what they are. I myself have 12 years in with MQ and am done in 3 weeks.  Don't get snotty with us...
Aren't they out of Texas

You aren't going w/ Amphion?
Or are you a different Rainbow
When MTs aren't working
1. Burnout. It's quite common in this field, due to the intensity of the job. Anyone with any real experience in this field knows this and takes precautions to keep it from happening. Intelligent employers make sure it doesn't happen, recognize it when they see it and work the MT through it. If not, good MTs are lost. Many people supervising MT now are not MTs and are completely ignorant of the job.
2. Getting mostly crap work or unfamiliar work on an ongoing basis. If bombed with crap work without compensation for known crap work, MTs get the above burnout, pound their brains out for nothing then give up.
3. We are people, not nameless machines. Lack of adequate rest or reasonable time off without penalty is self-defeating. MTs that give up their entire lives for their jobs and then make less than 30K for it eventually slow down. No incentive to keep going. After two years without a mammogram, dental appointment, a filthy house and my family having to make appointments with me to see me, I found myself in a vicious cycle that was not worth it. These personal things have to be done and eventually people will do them when they get fed up with self-neglect.

And that is why some people aren't working.

why aren't you working?????
too busy reading everyone's posts?????
aren't we ALL recruiters for the
company we work for. Obviously we like where we work since we are employed there....and don't we all then recruit others who are in the job market....
I'd say if you aren't using their equipment it is known of their

business.  I do see an issue if you have their equipment and are using that equipment in the second job. 


Maybe the MT's at TT aren't interested in QA
A lot of MT's aren't cut out for or even interested in doing QA. TT is running the ad but they haven't even posted the ad within the company for some reason. I am happy doing MT'ing for TT and make a lot of money so I'm not interested but I do have acquaintances and friends in QA, one just left and another one has been looking to leave for some time.
Maybe it is because they just aren't cutting it!

They are used to getting up and leaving their work area for as long as they like or maybe they are used to working 5 hours out of a 7-hour shift?  Maybe because now they are expected to do what is asked of them??  Maybe they are trying to babysit their kids while working and have too many distractions??

I am an oldie but goody with Axolotl and I will say these things are totally not true!!!!

No, they aren't that good....
Not from my experience anyway. Maybe they have really good American QA. I TRIED to QA some of their work for a very short time and just could not do it. It was not QA, it was re-do.
Oh please!! You really are arrogant aren't you?
A LOT of positions don't pay much more than 7.5 cpl for clinic notes no matter how much experience/knowledge you have and some are even less. YES, OP notes should be paid at a higher rate.
They aren't asking you to do this forever either, are they? sm
Looks like a temporary bind in schedule coverage and you'll be able to take a weekend day off later, after your boss gets better coverage. Doesn't seem threatening to me; he or she is asking for your help.
Aren't they in Arkansas?
What do you want to know? I might be able to help if you mean QED in Arkansas.
Maybe you just aren't good enough

Almost 0.06 VR, 0.095 total type.

Maybe your work quality rates you with the bottom feeders. I've been there a few weeks and got hired on with these numbers.
