was Easter one of the paid holidays with Webmedx? nm
Webmedx has 6 paid holidays a year, separate from PTO, for full time employees.
I will start there on Sept. 8. They have a nice benefits package, sm

and the pay via the incentive tier seems fair and easily attainable, although since I have not started on the account, I cannot really say for sure -- if it is an atrocious account, then of course that changes everything.  I have not read anything bad about the company, though, so to me that is a good sign.  I will be using ExText, which I have used before, so that is another plus for me. 

As for choosing between IC and employee, I guess that depends upon whether you need the benefits.  If you do not need the bennies and are still interested in working for them, maybe you could negotiate a bit higher line rate ... I do not know, just guessing.  They also have a bonus program if you keep to your schedule each quarter, so that is a nice plus.

Good luck with whatever you decide.  Like you, I would like to find a home.  I have an IC position that I love and will probably never totally give up, but I would like to have the benefits and some of the tax hassle erased. 

What I mean is, to be paid for holidays, even if you dont work. Major holidays.

Sorry.  What I mean is, to be paid for holidays, even if you dont work. Major holidays.

If someone has the experience, the volume and the quality, whole package, they SHOULD be paid well.
Our employees, at 0.08-0.10 per line make $24-30 per hour. That is not peanuts.
Are your holidays paid or do you have to use PTO?

Because that makes a big difference in how many days off are paid for.

Holidays at WMX are paid...
You don't need to use your PTO.  I started at WMX one year ago and the PTO for the first  year is actually 3 days (24 hours); at least that is what it was when I started.  Don't know if they changed that.  After first year, it becomes 10 days (80 hours). 
Different company but no slow down, swamped but we were before holidays. Nice having work..

TransHealth has paid holidays. nm
Looking for paid holidays with a company. n/m
Where holidays were not paid, so I did not know to question that when

it states 6 holidays.  Then you have to choose 2 or 3 of those 6 that you will work.  Sorry, but there are things that we just don't think to question. 

In regards to the paycheck deduction for health, life, dental and vision from each paycheck, my totals $100.00 per pay period for employee only -- then the computer rental fee of 9.23 per pay period.

Then the shift differential is what is not really worth it for working nights, and then no differential for working weekends at all!   Oh, well, gotta keep on  Large.  being thank for my job.

You do not get paid for holidays unless you work them. sm
You do have to work 3 of the 6 recognized holidays. One of those has to be either Christmas or Thanksgiving. If you work Christmas one year, the next you have to work Thanksgiving. If you do not work on the holiday, you have to use PTO if you want to be paid.
Also 6 paid holidays, good ...
incentive pay, great supervisors.  As a single, i pay $83 per pay period for the BC/BS, dental, vision.  I haven't had a problem with not enough work.  There are a lot of ESL dictators though.
Just found out we at TransTech do not get paid for holidays.

That is the first company I have worked for that did not pay for holidays that they offered as a holiday.  Surprise to me! 

Do any of you work for a company that pays for the holidays they offer.  I believe the BIG ones MQ and Spheris pay for holidays.  Are there other companies out there that pay for holidays?  Thanks.

They give ,more paid holidays to India though
That's right - they give more paid holidays (going by whatever the Indian culture considers holy/holidays), company parties and better equipment to their ever-growing Indian staff.  So if you moved to India you might get a better deal from them.
P.S. I am full-time too and they have paid holidays. (nm)
Does Medscribe FL offer paid holidays?
I am just curious as I am considering leaving another national due to lack of work
Who gets paid holidays & maternity leave? I'm an IC nm
PTO, sick pay, paid holidays, benefits include...sm
Medical, dental, vision, drug coverage.  Great company.  I like my accounts.  Plenty of work.
TransHealth has paid holidays for full timers. nm

You only get 3 holidays OFF per year. PTO is paid at a very low rate. There is 401k...sm

But the company match is only up to 2%. Employees are required to work at least 1 weekend day every week.

All of the hospitals/clinics have a lot of ESLs, that's just the way it is. But a lot of them also use canned normals, which we love.

There's a lot more to consider than how much the medical plan costs.

Basically what it means is OSI is eliminating paid holidays
OSI has no sick pay at all. You have to use your measly PTO for any time off, and it is the worst PTO I have ever seen. My teenage daughter has more PTO from a pizza joint... yep its the truth. So now basically no paid holidays for the majority of the employees. This sux big time.
TransHealth has great benefits, PTO, paid holidays for fulltimers. nm
yeah, but wouldn't you really like your holidays paid in addition to PTO? sheeeesh
TransHealth has 6 paid holidays in addition to PTO and sick pay for fulltimers. nm
NO paid holidays for us all year round. If there is any work on the holiday, you get

lines and a half, but usually there is no work.  They usually clear out the work before the holiday so there is no 1-1/2 line pay remaining.  Transtech names 6 holidays each year, but the MT takes those holidays off WITHOUT pay.    I am sure the office staff and all other non-MT staff take off WITHOUT pay, too, aren't you????   LOL

Which MT companies DO pay an MT for holidays.  I don't consider a day a HOLIDAY unless it is PAID.  They can call it 6 holdays, but have to take off without pay . . . . just another day, i.e, get sick -- NO PAY.

I worked for them shortly. They were very nice and paid well and on time. sm
This what I did not like. On the account I had, each report had to be saved separately and then individually sent. It seemed to take a lot of time monkeying around with each separate file which was only about 10 to 11 lines long. I do know that not all of their accounts are like this. They were extremely nice people and paid well!!
I am not a recruiter and I do not get paid to say nice things. I just like working for sm
them. Is that so wrong? I have a lot of work, I like my account, I get paid well and on time. That's 4 for 4 in my book. I have not found that anywhere else.

Their ads do not say 9 cpl for everyone; they list a range.

The equipment is not ancient. I have an internet count.

Why do so many come on here to b**** and moan and tell half truths. Unless you experienced it yourself or know facts, why spread things?
They were very nice and paid on time right from the start, but both accts. I got put on I couldn'
Webmedx Editors, how are they paid (per line or hourly)? Do they reimburse for
CMT examination fee or pay part of it?  Do they give any kind of consideration for MTs or Editors with their CMT?
Very few MTSOs pay for holidays. Some give you 6 days you can use for holidays or regular PTO, but
You have to work 3 of the big 6 holidays. For those that you work, you are paid
time and a half. For those that you do not work, you can either get paid by using PTO or they are treated like normal days off (for which you are not paid). Sometimes, they will even pay double time for the big holidays if there is a lot of work on the system. I've found them to be exceedingly fair.
Very nice owner, nice work, nice place - sm
the leave you alone.  I left because they do not budge from their pay which was kind of mediocre.  I would go back if I had to because they were extremely nice.
What package?
How about not getting a package at all and

when you call a week after it was due to arrive, in their little computer it comes up that it WAS delivered a week ago, that the package was handed to some woman over the fence at that address, when in fact there is NO woman living there and the person living at that address was home all day waiting for the package with a clear view of the street and checking his doorstep every hour.  How is that one explained?  

Whatever happened to them actually knocking on the door and getting a signature??  Twice this week I didn't even know I had deliveries until I opened my front door and almost tripped over them while walking to my mailbox.

Yes, it is a busy time of the year with holiday packages being sent in addition to their regular load, but if you cannot deliver it on time, don't take someone's overnight-priced package with a promise it will be there the next day and not deliver it.  I would be asking for my money back.  It was NOT delivered overnight as promised.  My mother will get the money (eventually) for the gifts that were lost IF she can prove it was not delivered or stolen, but what about the thought, the time, the gifts that cannot be replaced with money?  

Holidays - Is there any company who pays holidays?

Are there companies (like in the old days) who pay you for Christmas, NY, Thanksgiving, etc., MAJOR HOLIDAYS?



Look at the total package

Sometimes a great incentive program more than makes up for low CPL, also a good program, good dictators, how many templates and normals you can get.  I knew someone who consistently did over 2000 lines per day and did not work more than 8 hours, doing mostly OPs with ESLs, but they all said the same thing, used formats.  She just had to keep making her normals and inserting them.  They said the same phrases over and over, so she made big bucks.  Once she got used to them, it was a breeze and she was consistently one of the highest earners. 

I would just keep checking other companies.  I am sure there is something out there for you.  Don't give up.


look at the whole package! their benefits are amazing.
How is their benefit package? Insurance costs, etc?
Cymed Benefits Package for New Year

Anybody out there got an opinion on the new benefits for 2006?  Extremely disappointing, to say the least.  You would think that a company who claims to be the 3rd largest national would have more to offer to those of us who tirelessly make their position in the industry possible.  It has become painfully obvious with this package that they have lost sight of whose backs upon which their growth has been riding.  Maybe it's time to move on.   Any place you folks can point a loyal veteran MT desiring an employer who sincerely appreciates hard work and is willing to reciprocate?

the benefit package for Diskriter is the only reason I am looking at them...nm
Feedback on Nuance transcription package
Just started the Enterprise Express software upgraded version in December.  There seems to be a lot of manual input to create documents even with the link to our ADT feed.  Any hopes of getting good production on this system.  We will be going to a voice recognition system in addition to the transcription package after the initial bugs are worked out.  After a month, I am just hoping things will start to fall in place, but looking for feedback if possible. 
Keystrokes announces 2006 benefits package sm

Keystrokes has finalized the benefits package for full time employees and has received great feedback from our MTs.

We wanted to share these so that you get them straight from the source rather than in rumors and heresay.

To be FT, you must produce a minimum of 12,000 lines (acute care), 1200 reports (radiology) or a combination of the two.

After 90 days, all FT employees are eligible for:

2 sick days, 2 floating paid holidays, rate x 1.5 for holidays worked, 3 days bereavement pay for immediate family, 1 day bereavement pay for extended family, 401k plan (with vesting schedule for match), health insurance (paid by employee) and life insurance (paid by company), direct deposit.

After one year, FT employees are eligible for 5 days PTO.  After three years, FT employees are eligible for 10 days PTO and after ten years, FT employees are eligible for 15 days PTO.

After years of changes due to growth, we have deemed 2006 a change-free year and have put in place many surprise perks for our MTs for this coming year. 

We value our transcriptionists - both employees and ICs and want to make Keystrokes the employer of choice. 

Give us a look ... you will like what you see.  No more awkward growing pains; instead you will be treated with the professional respect you deserve while enjoying a personal touch!

Thank you to all who have helped mold the company into what it is today - we could not do it without the support of our transcriptionists, customers and supporters.  We even thank the critics - their criticism allows us to improve :)

Happy Holidays !
