Debbie - there IS a slight glitch on the 2nd page - sm

Posted By: 23skidoo on 2007-06-16
In Reply to: ThankYou ThankYou - Debbie

where after you complete it, and click on CONTINUE, you get a message in red at the top left-hand corner stating answering that question is required. (Even though it HAS been answered). I figured out to just hit exit survey at the top, but was not sure if my answers were recorded or not. Anyway, that might need to be fixed, because it might cause people to give up and not finish or send the survey.

Thanks for publishing it - GREAT idea!

    There may have been a glitch. Talk to your SM
    supervisor and HR on Monday. I don't think any company would stop your insurance without advanced warning.
    MQ has the slight edge but KS isn't bad (nm)

    Sue and Debbie
    Maybe if Sue would actually LEAVE things would be okay, but right now the company is going downhill FAST. Debbie is back AGAIN and with her disorganization things will NEVER change.

    If you want to be happy with where you work (at least most of the time) then you need to continue looking because these two companies are not the places to work. Think about it, why are they always hiring more and more people? Itís called HIGH TURNOVER!
    when was Debbie gone??nm
    q
    You should ask Debbie
    Any concern especially with regard to below.... ask.
    Debbie
    Is the air time card also called an express card? Do they have cards that you just pay a monthly fee for and not through your cell phone but like through a satellite dish or something?
    there is a thread further down this page or possibly the next page
    I transcribed for Compuscribe years ago. Had no problems, just low pay but no problems.
    Go to the bottom of the page and click on a page
    number to get the most recent archives and then can do Ctrl F and do a search for WebMedX.   I wouldn't call them a small national.  
    Page 2, scroll down towards the middle of the page, NM

    Debbie is a schemer, nothing more!
    I could swear when we first checked out her pay me to take surveys MLM scam site before she had previously worked at Bloomingdale's or Nordstroms, but I do not recall that she had worked there for 20 years or had worked anywhere for 20 years. Seems to me she had references from several people she had supposedly worked with from several different places all swearing up and down what a wonderful and qualified employee she was (too much so, if you get my drift). I don't recall ANY of those said jobs being QA positions, more like sales or clerical. She seems to have had a lot of jobs for someone her age who worked for 1 company for 20+ years.

    My point here is that this gal was operating a pyramid scheme just a couple months ago. Her original site was Join here and pay $20 to take survey's about our MT business, and then refer people to me and you will get $5.00 per person who signs up under your name. I don't believe she is interested in any of this information being factual, she just wants to collect it (along with our personal data) so she can make money by selling it to God only knows whom, probably costing us our jobs or at the very least a whole lot of aggravation with e-mail boxes being filled with spam from other companies. Her only goal (in my opinion) is to make money in a marketing scheme. I guess she thinks the national MT companies are going to pay her for this data just because she collected it? She will claim its accuracy because she did a survey? I also find it odd that while she talks about QA this and QA that, it seems to me what she really means is quality control - and that is a big difference, odd she would not know the difference, isn't it?

    Being a former Spheris employee myself, if she was as all that in the QA field, she should have started with them. I do wonder if she is still with them and, if not, then my guess is this is how she thinks she can make a living since, apparently, no other companies will have her?

    One thing we all noted before, and it is rather apparent on her new site too, is that for someone who has been an MT for 3+ years and is supposedly as good as she claims herself to be, she sure makes a whole lot of errors.
    You don't happen to know. Ask Debbie if you don't believe me! n/m

    I am really not sure, but I would contact Debbie and just ask.

    her point is to thank Debbie.

    Did you ever see Debbie Downer on SNL?
    x
    Debbie is no longer the owner.
    The previous COO from Heartland is now the President and COO! Watch out! Major outsource lover...
    No, higher. I think like 6 or 6.5 cpl. I would call Debbie and ask her.
    s
    E-mail your supervisor or Debbie and ask them!! nm

    Debbie - please re-send the email
    /
    Debbie told me when she hired me
    that she is more interested in the total line count than the hours. Pam I Yam and the other poster is correct - just put your regular shift instead of all the signing in and out stuff. The time card needs to show 40 hours but how many people take bathroom breaks and actually eat during the day? It's not a big deal!!!!! Put your regular shift in.
    I find it hard to believe that Debbie "promised" you
    So is Transtech the first company you ever worked at that had slow periods? Didn't think so.
    Debbie Hood is the HR person -- give her a call. nm

    If you want to know the real scoop, always better to just ask.  Someone might pay me $20 a report (okay, in my dreams) and someone else something else.   I understand when people come here and want to know things a recruiter or HR person cannot or will not tell you, such as quality and quantity of dictation and dictators, reliability of being paid on time and such.  But if you want to know specifics of how much per report/line, what kind of bennies, direct deposit or no, etc ... why not just write an email or pick up the phone and ASK?


     


    This is not meant to be rude or anything.  I just am curious.  When I signed on with a company, I saw posts saying 10 cpl was the ceiling and a bunch of other user-specific information that had nothing to do with what I was offered.  I made 11-1/2 cpl AND they paid my long distance.  A lot has to do with bargaining skills and what you have to offer.


     


    JMO.


    I hope Debbie "outs" the entire greedy -nm
    )
    Might I suggest that you adjust your hours a little and talk to Debbie. (sm)
    see if that helps get you through the crunch.  I guarantee it won't last long.
    Call the office and ask to speak w/ Debbie Hood
    nm....
    Any current info on Debbie Hicks/Psychtrans?

    Couldn't find anything in the archives that hadn't been deleted.  Any info on this person/company? Good/bad or otherwise? TIA

    No one will post account names here. Call Debbie or your supervisor. nm

    Some WMX posts on page 4 here near the top of the page. nm
    s
    TransTech is a good company. Debbie is the owner and a good one at that! nm
    n
    I don't see that on their web page
    nm
    Take a look at the next page (sm)
    Maybe the people aren't still there, but they're experiences weren't good. Companies don't change that radically. If there are problems like that, it's because of major philosophical problems in the company. If after reading those posts you'd still want to pursue testing with them, well, all I can say is good luck. I'm sure we'll be hearing from you later.
    Pay by the page
    Is this good or bad? Does anyone have any experience with this type of pay?
    Pay by the page
    Thank you. It's $2.50 per pay page on a sliding scale. I do not really understand it and that's why I do not really know what questions to ask. Thanks for the input.
    per page

    To me it there are too many variables to quote a per page rate, font size, margins, etc.  You can have anywhere from 50 to 66 lines for full page depending on margins and font, so at .012 per line, that is quite a difference.  Also what do you do for 20 or 30 lines,  as they could both be half a page?   That is just my opinion though.   Could work in your favor and could not.  If they use a small Arial 10 font, takes a lot more lines to fill up a page than Courier 12.


     


     


     


    I Get $2.75 per page
    I type for an insurance company doing claim tapes and I charge by the page. It works out well for me. I type in Tahoma 10. Even if a page is just one line long I get paid the full rate.
    i see it a little further down on this page
    /
    pay per page
    typo
    Pay by the page
    How on earth do you charge by the page? I have never been paid by the page but only by the line. Luckily, I found the job through the local paper and they will let me work from home (only 5 minutes away). There is a big psychiatric hospital down there street. Thanks for all of your help. I about gave up on transcription.
    Pay by the page
    I meant there is a big psychiatric hospital down the street from where I live and they usually charge by the page, but I have never charged by the page, but only by the line. Any suggestions?
    by the page
    The margins per page are 3 inch on the top and 3 inch left margin. Does that make a difference do you think?
    Look down the page a little.....

    Keystrokes is really popular right now. 


    you are all over this page
    with negative comments about a lot of companies.  Probably not a very good idea to let this recruiter know who you are by e-mailing straight from this site. Just a helpful hint.
    pay by page
    Does anyone work for a transcription company that pays by the page instead of cents per line?  If so, could you please email me.  Thanks.
    Yep and now it's a whole page +2.
    z
    On what page are they? If they are there, I will
    x
    Further down this page, 1/3 way?, you
    will find a message from the recruiter, Carlotta Buckley, with that signature.

    I, along with others, have elabored myself on MDI, which is probably on next page now.

    It is a great company that will do everything they can to take care of the MT. They have a positive QA team, etc. Personally i think they are the best company around.
    Same page
    I only wish more people would get on the page with us.  I fail to see  how some people can stick their head so far in the sand. 
    No I'm not QA and I think we are on the same page. sm
    My original post was in regards to Bayou MT's comment that we are not paid to look up doctor's names, unfamiliar names, terminology, etc.

    P.S. I've run into the same QA types. The absolute worse was one from YOG. She actually called me on the phone and put me down.
