or tell you they "revised" their pay scale and give you a lower rate.
They do offer an incentive rate scale to PTers. NM
for MQ STAT employees tier rate applies to ME rate as well and how calcluated?
for a STAT MQ employee:  Does anyone know if the tier rate is going to be applied to the ME rate as well or are they going to go with the 80% of the MT rate for each tier level?  If the tier rate doesn't apply as well to the ME rate then going by the 80% of the MT rate is less than if the tier rate would be applied.  I'm sure that MQ is going to go by whatever keeps money in their pockets.  Guess this is a question for the supervisor tomorrow.
Their line rate was less than my current nat'l rate, even with mucho experience. nm

VR rate is 1/2 rate of traditional typing,I believe it is 4 cents line.

I took that to mean you can get to that rate after 1600 lines and that is not the starting rate.
Webmedx ASR rate is 70% of your regular line rate. sm
So if you are on a 9 cpl account, you get 6.3 CPL plus any bonus / incentives / shift differential.
From the current editing rate not typing rate
New Pay Scale??
I am curious.  Many MQ posters have heard about things like 'new pay scales', and I receive no communication whatsoever from MQ.  Is it because I don't subscribe to their e-mail? Is this where this information comes from? I mean, they have my e-mail address, but I have never gotten any communication from anyone but an occasional proofer note.
Pay scale.
How much do you make an hour?  I require $30 to $40 a hour.
If the pay scale for MT2 is .07 to .09 CPL, then
how do you know which you get, .07, .08, or .09?  I currently make .08.  If I get a decrease to .07, then, well..........
about their pay scale
Top pay with Trans Tech is 8.5 cpl. 
Pay scale
They offer 6 cents per line. Way less than what I get for straight transcription, but I'm just curious as to how much more a straight voice Editor can really produce. If I thought it would be at least the same money and if I knew for sure they were a reputable company, I would do it, but I haven't been able to get much information.
The pay scale is different...sm
I worked for them for about three months but only 12 hours a week.  Their payscale really doesn't work well unless you work full time.  You couldn't ask for a nicer bunch of folks.  You can e-mail me if you like.
pay scale
They may not have job listings for US MTs but they DID have a screening site where you could find out how much your MT skills would be worth with Acusis (in India)...36,000 rupees a year.

(Yes, I did the conversion. It's less than $9000 US.)
MQ pay scale
They run in tiers'' with Tier 3 being the highest topping out at 10 cents. There are very few making top money; most are long-time employees from other companies that were absorbed (bought up)by MQ. I have known several hired in the past couple of years and looks like 7 cents a line is the norm for new hires.

Raises? Certain criteria must be met. I wouldn't count on them.

First,you must not have more than 15% going to QA which will be even more difficult with the national pooling. This rule in itself pretty much kicks everyone out. That 15% doesn't allow for circumstances beyond your control,i.e,dictator effect, etc. They just look at the percentage submitted to QA, if it is more than that, no raise; the reasons for submission make NO difference. Second,you must have 98% accuracy which shouldn't be a problem if you are a good MT. Mainly the QA submission is what keeps everyone from getting raises because MQ doesn't subtract from the 15% the reports sent for unknown doctors not listed on the roster, dictator effect, etc.; you know, all the things that are beyond the MT's control. LASTLY, there is a freeze on all raises for now, so that in itself should be a big warning sign to you. If you do decide to hire on, get AS MUCH as you can walking through the door as I seriously doubt you will see any raises down the road.

Health insurance runs around $135 a month for the employee for best plan. The other plan is somewhat cheaper but I believe it is more of a ''health spending plan rather than insurance.

pay scale

I did QA work, not MT work, so I'm not sure.  I think it was around 8.5 cpl, but not positive on that.  Give a call to the recruiters, they'll let you know for sure.

What's their pay scale like?
How is the pay scale
Do they compare with other companies or will they pay more for experience? Thanks for posting, it is a big help to hear good things about a company that has not had much good said about it.
KS pay scale
i looked quickly but don't find my notes on the interview with this company which was about 2 hours of me interviewing THEM. So i can't address that point now. Maybe they've changed something, maybe i'm mixing them up with another company(but don't think so). Just ask plenty of questions so YOU know the answers to the questions. If the answers satisfy you, nevermind what i or anyone else says. Good luck!
Pay scale
There are those who only make 7 cpl for them on clinic notes.  That's why I didn't send them the test I took.
pay scale
You'd better believe it. I've been an MT since 1984. Sucks, doesn't it!?
Pay scale - sm
Yes, and you can BET that the facilities are not paying LESS per line/report during all this...so, where does all that money go? Certainly not to us....
Pay scale same for everybody
No, I don't think the MDI people should be brought down, I think the Transcend people should get the same rate and the same options as you are getting.  What I think will happen is you will get your rate for a period of time then they will drop you down somehow.  I really can't see them paying the MDI MTs more than their own employees for the long-term
amphion pay scale

There are 3 levels of employees:

Level 1is clinic, ER, urgent - start out at 7.4 cpl work up to 7.7 cpl

Level 2 is Hospital H&P, consults start 7.8 cpl work up to 8.1 cpl

Level 3 is All Hospital/ESL start at 8.25 cpl work up 8.5 cpl

after 13,500 you can earn an extra 0.25 cpl for incentive pay.  This is 65 chara line count w/spaces.  10 an hour while in training.

Other places pay more.

They have a low pay scale. They treat you like
The owner is nice enough, but she does not like to pay until her client pays her and she will make you sign a paper stating you agree to that.  Just be careful what you sign.  You might like it if you like EMDAT.  There is no training.  You train yourself through a website she gives you for EMDAT.  Again pay is low.
Webmedx pay scale for VR
Anybody know?  Transcend pays about 50-60% of your typing line rate, which I think is really bad.  Anybody know about Webmedx's rate for VR?
Very low and weird pay scale, Keep looking. nm
I turned them down after seeing the pay scale

I did send them an email and explain that my expectations for transcribing all work types in acute care would be 10 cpl.  They start out at 6.  That's a canyon of difference!

It also bothered me that pay is based on which shift you work.  It seems to me that goes into the gray area of IRS guidelines of control for employee versus IC status.  I need to work split shifts.  Also, I am more inclined to work when there is work and if there is no work during my shift, how can I make money?  I asked if they could negotiate some of these issues with me and they stopped communicating with me.  I'm glad I went with my instinct and did find someone else who gives me the flexibility, line rate and work types I wanted.

They have a very strange pay scale and no one
can quite figure it out.  Very hard to get lines, unable to make any money.  Lots of turnover.  They are also currently training women in Trinidad to be MTs so it is only a matter of time before the jobs follow. 
AllType pay scale
The pay scale varies depending on your skill set, experience and account.
What is the pay scale for Keystrokes please? Thanks! (nm)

I'd like to know what pay scale she is offering. NM
Diskriter pay scale

Does Diskriter pay biweekly or the 1st and the 15th?

pay scale for TransTech
What are the cpl rates. I know probably depends upon experience, but if someone could give me a ball park figure it would help. Thanks.
standardized pay scale

If other professionals in the healthcare field have pay scales they know they can count on to go no lower than a certain rate, surely we can have the same established for us MTs and MEs.  This is not a profession you can just take up on a whim, as some people think when I tell them what I do.  There are so many facets to doing this job correctly -- having a good ear for accents and garbled speech, common basic language knowledge, medical terminology, grammar, spelling, the list continues.  It is so outrageous that we have not been given our fair share of respect and a cut of the money pie. 

I am tired of people in management getting theirs while we do the hard work as they crack the whip for every little thing.  This profession is so rewarding when done correctly by EVERYone who participates (hello, docs) and everyone benefits when everyone does their part with respect for those who come behind or before them.

Companies who offer wages that insult us should not be worked at.  Those companies who take away line rates and incentives and bonuses and never give raises should also be boycotted.  If the bottom line is the almight dollar on their end as to their business practices, then so be it for us as well.  We shouldn't work for less than what we are worth.  Newbies are newbies and have to pay their dues and learn the trade.  There should be a pay scale for the first two years specifically for them.  After that, it should progress as the years add up, 3-5 years, 5-10 years, etc.  

The thing is, I don't know how to go about getting this considered and implemented.  Perhaps we would have to collectively ignore or boycott those companies who treat MTs poorly.  As long as there is someone who is willing to work for them under their rules, it will continue.     


I forgot to add that the pay scale

I am making much, much more now.

gctfl pay scale
A friend of mine started 6 months ago with gctfl at 8 cents a line, and has not received a higher pay scale since being off of training status.  She loves it there though, and likes the weekend and holiday incentives.  Maybe she should ask about an increase in pay??? 
The pay scale is less for employees. sm
I work as an IC there and make more per line. TTS has great accounts and once you learn the dictators and account specifics, there is good money to be made there. Some days I'm making $30 or more an hour. I would rather work on great accounts at a little less per line than work horrible accounts for 10 cents a line. That's just me though.
They used to advertise they pay scale as -
9-11 cpl.  PRN status is 7.5 cpl.  From what I heard recently, they are trying to lower their MT pay expense (not investment), so if you ever were to get off 9 cpl it would surprise me.
Spheris Pay Scale
Anyone know what Spheris current pay scale is standard and SR, and what minimum line requirement is?  Any information would be greartly appreciated.
Also, they have a tiered pay scale. sm
So be aware of that when considering them.  The pay is good if you stay 10,001 lines and above but if for some reason the work slacks off and you fall to 6,000 or less, you get less per line. Something to think about.
eTransPlus pay scale
I've been with them for 4 months and average 10 cpl. They require 10,000 lines per 2 week pay period for benefits (the company pays half of the premiums) and the pay for that on day shift is 8.5. That is only 1,000 lines per day which shouldn't be too hard for an experienced MT. For 12,000 lines, pay is 9 cpl and for 14,000, it is 9.25. You also make a differential for 2nd and 3rd shift. What is good for one MT, may not suit another but I just wanted to make it clear that they don't start you out at 6 cpl. You are paid for your production. My only disappointment is their bad medical insurance.
Yes, they still have the tiered pay scale. I
thought I would like it, but I really don't like it too well. If the platforms were more user friendly, it could work out well, though.
Pay scale at Transcend - sm

I would not expect more than 8 cpl for straight typing, no matter how many years experience and about 4 cpl for VR if you are employee.  They won't tell you pubically in a conference call because this is probably something you can negotiate on hiring, but there are ceilings, and don't hold your breath for a raise after the starting rate is estabilished.  Incentives may or may not be included...like the more you do, the more you get paid per line, again, something to negotiate.  Also, weekend and shift differentials ARE given, but another negotiable factor.  Hope this is of some help. 

Cannot help with insurance cost, as the only one I get is dental for myself and hubby, which is very good, and is $18.00/pay check ($36.00 month).

Nice people, but the pay scale is quite
complicated and very low. You can only get the top line rate if you're a CMT and trained on multiple accounts. They do send you a computer, but they don't charge for it. The most telling thing is that my former supervisor left shortly after I did. I say keep looking.
amphion pay scale tier 3? - nm
Pay scale ridiculously low for experienced MT...NM
I knew the pay scale because they offered
me a position, which I declined because it was less than what I was currently making.  Someone else posted they wished they made that much and then I posted what I was making, but not with WebMedX.   You didn't read all the posts.   I don't know about any incentives with WebMedX. 
Probity - pay scale says 0.0825 but -
it says there are incentives.  What hoops do you need to jump through to get the incentives?
MTSOs, on a scale of 1 to 10, how qualified are
I'm just wondering if you are able to hire most of the people who are applying, or if there are a lot of underqualified MTs out there.
