If you think you dont get more of the junk work when it is picked over by VR or ASR you had better

Posted By: MQPA on 2005-08-15
In Reply to: Here is the facts versus myths about the SR pay.... - Current happy Transcender

think again. The best attendings will be gone to VR and you will get the leftovers. I have been doing both for a year and I can guarantee you your CEO is full of it. Dont believe a word of it. You will either make less money on ASR or less money on the leftovers. Take you choice.

She is talking about QA and money is not tops. It is line pay for junk work.
They need to pay by the hour like they used to.
I dont know what that means. I am an SE. I dont sit and wait for work I come back in when it is
there so I never had to deal with Amherst when there was no work because I just stopped working and did other things. My feeling is if this doesnt work there are other jobs out there.
If I cant make QA, dont give me work. Dont dock
Tired: Has worked picked up at FN. Used to work there and left for WX. sm
Would kind of like to go back. Loved the gang; I used to be a YOGer. Had to leave about 1-1/2 years ago because of no work. Still mostly IC? Thanks.
Con: Overflow work is cherry-picked from the git-go by the account's inhouse MTs. nm
i get it that's junk!!
Junk platforms
Yep, me too.  Walmart, here I come!!! lol.  I think I may do well on the night shift! After all, I'm used to it!!!!!  HEEEE
you work there dont you? You tell us
Dont even work there

I worked there for few months and realized that its not a good place to work at all. Specially the Owners of the Company is the biggest problem to work there as he is not a professional at all. They are loosing clients recently and not good to go there

ASR and VR probably where the newbies go and you get the junk dontcha think
Oh, I've been the recipient of that junk too.
I've worked many, many evening shifts doing all the dictators and junk everyone skipped or logged off and left for me. But, it's my job to do whatever is assigned to me. But I'm not like that - I know those people have hurt us, as a whole, but I genuinely was very ill and the room was spinning while I was typing. From a quality standpoint - I hope they double-checked everything I typed that day, because I really was so sick. I've typed with clogged ears while battling a cold, coughing my brains out with bronchitis, even running to the bathroom with you-know-what, but this UTI made me so feverish, lightheaded and in pain from urgency and frequency, that I debated going to the ER ... it was that bad. Literally, I sat typing with tears running down my face. NO job is worth that.
Have all the emails go to Junk so you don't see them. Keep calling until
I got out of that junk company a year ago - SM
Best move I made in my career! I was with Cymed before they became SPI. I left last February and went to Keystrokes. I'm more than glad that I did! They were still calling me almost every week up until August asking me why I wasn't working! What a bunch of idiots!
I dont work for MDI-FL but I would certainly hope
that the rude poster below does not work for them. I would not want to work with people that rude. The original poster just asked a question, isnt that what these forums are for???
hope you dont run out of work-- nm
Dont work there but you know they arent doing
Oh I wonder what happened to those MTs then. Dont they have work now. Are all the

MTs running out of work.  I wouldnt think many are happy if there is not enough work.  I know I am  not.

I dont work for this company, but I do want to say...
I read all of the replies to your question so far, and it is nice to see all the support from your coworkers. All had very thoughtful and well thought out replies. Must be a nice company to work for, and I think you are fortunate to work there.

Good luck improving your line count.
Why dont you do the work for 6 cpl and keep all the profit for yourself but
I expect you cant do it so you try to hire people for 6 cpl that can do it.  I bet you didnt get hundreds of applications this time.
Agree, lol. I dont even work there & I can tell
They have tons of ESL-lots of overflow junk. nm
Looks like junk mail to me, the kind you get out of newspapers!


I don't like all the junk mail. This trims it significantly..sm
I also don't like having my credit report hacked. Too much ID theft these days, and my financial advisor said it is the only way to fly these days. One of my credit cards was hacked a few years ago, so this extra precaution is something I'm willing to do to protect myself even more. And, no matter what, ultimately MTs should be hired for their skill and experience, not how much debt is being carried.
I dont work for TransTech, but I have noticed that too. nm
I read somewhere that certain routers dont work with VPN. SM
I believe it was a certain Linksys brand.

I would like to go wireless too.
Just curious, where do you work if you dont mind my asking. nm
Well, seems to me if you work you dont get paid eithr - sm
I do understand the dilemma, but honestly, start looking for a job that does pay during this period.  I know of many companies that unfortunately play games with your pay and I've been watching one do this for five years now and remarkably he is still in business because while he does eventually make good on his promise to pay, he wreaks havoc on those who work for him constantly.  People like this should be shut down, but as long as his contractors keep playing along with him, he will continue. 
I dont think you will make more than that for clinic work.

I make 10 cpl at the Q, but have been there 12 years and was at that rate when my prior company was bought out. 

There are people who make that, but not for clinic work and probably not for just starting at a company.  I have been applying like crazy and the best I came up with was 8 cpl for Basic 4 and 9 cpl for straight OPs.

Thats 15 years experience.

You have to wonder if the supervisors that dont care about no work are always
getting new MTs because they quit all the time. 
my antidepressants dont even work anymore.
Dont work there but noticed few weeks ago they
I dont cherry pick, never did. I dont do that to my coworkers on my account.

What is the new status. I dont understand what it means. I dont need their benefits nor do I want
I just dont want to hit that extra space if I dont get paid for it, ya know. No message.
TT new account is cardiology, procedure junk that you cant get lines on.
So, it is working for nothing practically.  Just a new account on board for TT.
Dont bother. Not enough work to go around. People are quitting.
I guess at this rate, they may be hiring if everyone ends up quitting due to lack of work. They will come on here and state that we should just call the office and you will get put on another account. That is a joke. We have all tried that and you get ignored.  
I agree, they are unprofessional and rude. They throw you into a pool that they have overhired for and there is not enough work to go around... then they cry and complain when youre not hitting your production. They set impossible standards.... unless youre a brown-noser, in which case, see those peoples posts as the ones who would say anything positive about DSG. Its like the movie Mean Girls, and the mean girls are running the show there.
Yep. couldnt tell you excited we were to find out why we dont hardly have any work. Obviously, it is
going elsewhere and so are we.
Most facilties want their work for cheapest, dont care
Why do AAMT have hand on MY check? Dont work
I thought it was just me, glad to hear others aren't making much with all the junk you have to ad
check both inbox & junk (turn off spam killer, if any)
Why can't companies at least let you know you were not picked for a job?
Yeah, yeah, I'm sure they are bombarded with people testing, but when you think of the hours spent for MTs trying to find a new job, and they take all those MTtest.com tests while still trying to work all day, only never to hear a peep back is hard to take.  A simple thanks, but no thanks would go a long way in my book.  I am sick of wasting my time.
Please. Yep, they picked 1 MT to send it to.

Looks like I picked the 2 right choices TY!
I just picked that out thin air. nm
I actually picked up a stalker
several years ago from another website.  A pretty frightening experience!
If you want to be nit-picked to death
Then by all means, hire on with Keystrokes. I had just started with them but after I saw my review, I told them I did not want to work for them. They nit-pick every comma, etc., to death and there was no way I was going to put up with that. These services get so carried away by all the insignificant crap that they just drive away anyone who is a good MT but doesn't want to put up with the nit-picking. Good luck.
Maybe they dont answer because there is no work to get.Best way to avoid things I guess.
Medware does not pay correct? How so, you can email me too.. I dont want to work where they screw up
your check.. Thanks for any help...
Just dont ever forget the work that goes to India and other countries. I guess they will be doing
weekends etc. I am sure MQ has this all very nicely figured out.
