In a thread yesterday or the day before, a QT MT said that .... sm

In Reply to: Cool.....then from what I can figure out the company - they are referring to is...

she had heard from loose-lipped office staff, as I believe she put it. Soit was leaked out unintentionally but, I would imagine, not without merit.

Did you see the very long thread from yesterday about
OSI.   They said they did not offshore work, thus they were allowed to post here, but it turns out they didn't exactly tell the truth and they do offshore work, thus they are no longer able to post here.  
Please see post by "SM" near bottom of yesterday's KS thread. nm
MT's of yesterday
I, too, started doing MT in the old days. I started out with a selectric typewriter and dictabelts. I sure loved it. There were 12 docs on staff and I was the only transcriptionist. However, due to my then husband being in service, I stopped doing MT to follow him around. We have since been divorced and I am the administrative secretary to a hospital president. I still love MT better than any job I ever did.
yes - just yesterday again
Saw this yesterday

I saw a segment on a TV show yesterday where it was reported Hillary Clinton spoke to some Indian business leaders, and she told them she wants more visas issued so more can come over and start businesses [that will take away jobs].  The commentator did say she wanted to charge money for the visas [I don't know if they are currently free or just cheap] and that maybe she was just saying this to the Indian businessmen because she wants political contributions from them, because apparently elsewhere she has been saying she doesn't want jobs taken from Americans.  In a later segment it was reported that China was going to start making cars to be sold in the US by Chrysler [Chrysler will only market them for China, they won't be making them here].  Right now if the US wants to send cars to China for sale the tariff they charge is 25%, but if China wants to send a car here to sell the tariff we charge is only 2.5%.  Also if the US sells cars in China we have to make parts for the cars over there.  No wonder the headline for this whole thing was called war on middle America. This is one of those times when I wish I was close to retiring.

Concerning VR yesterday for me
I check my line count each hour as I have always done and yesterday with an hour and 15 minutes on VR I had over 800 lines at 4 cents a line. The VR can be almost letter perfect but it takes good training in order to get it there. I said crud, hope am not working myself out of a job because the platform has turned out to be really good. I chuckled yesterday when reading 1 poster who said she had ESLs that VR would never understand. She would be, like me, completely taken aback to see just how good it can be, with the proper training. I made $32 hours yesterday for the first hour so that is not a bad salary. I hope VR will never be able to go straight through also because that means no job for me!
Yesterday was end of pp at TT and I'd like to know
who got their line count for the payperiod.  I would like to hear honesty, not just that you got the whole pp line count in the first day, or anything like that.  I need to find out if it is possible to do this, or if I need to start working all day every day from the first day of the pp and on every day to do it... Today is day 1 of the pp and I wonder if I should start now... though it would mean 24/7 checking the computer.  Thank you for your input and suggestions on getting my required lines! Need the money and the benefits...
Got mine yesterday - nm
I had no work yesterday....
...and this morning the same thing.  I'm looking elsewhere.  I can't pay bills if my fingers aren't makin' money!  This is ridiculous.  Plus, they are advertising to hire more MT's.  There is no work for the ones that are employed there now.
I just did 2 reports yesterday out of 100 who were
on the wrong patient. I could tell. VR would not be able to. Because I was able to put Discrepancy Alert on the top of a report, it may have kept the unthinkable from happening.

I am hoping these scenarios will keep the quality conscious physicians with MTs who have a heart beat.
ok they told me yesterday and I do not....sm

I don't need to be told twice........I don't make the same error twice. 

Have applied with them just yesterday. sm
Have done a search but cannot find too much information about them.  Could you tell me why you are so happy with AllType, please?
tested yesterday
I haven't heard anything back from them yet.  So far, the experience has been very pleasant.  Amy, who I believe is the VP, has been so nice and helpful.  She acts like she really wants me to work for her rather than the take it or leave it attitude I have gotten from other people. 
I tried to take a test yesterday.

Been with MQ for 5 years, mostly good until recently when my account went over to Dictaphone and got a new supervisor (after 4 years) with the restructuring April 1.  I took a test using Express Scribe, and the sound quality was horrible - LOTS of white noise.  It makes me wonder about the sound quality of other companies.  If MQ has the best equipment, I may never find another job.  How depressing!

Their best supervisor had her last day yesterday and she usually

would get them right on it. So many new people in positions they do not know how to do and the MTs are on the ones suffering. Counting the hours and days until my time is up with them.

I applied yesterday....sm
she only pays 7 cents a line.  Wish she would have put that in her ad.  I wouldn't have bothered to apply at all!
I had my internet go down all yesterday and TT said to me sm
It can't be helped. I asked how long they would give me to make up the time I have lost...all pay period which just started Monday (this an employee position). I apologized, I felt bad and I told them I didn't want to lose this job. They said not to worry, we won't be getting rid of you, RELAX and try to enjoy a forced day off, come back ready to work when your internet comes on. Sigh...I like this.

QA continues to be wonderful and understanding. I was fit to be tied with a new work type today so my supervisor called me and was most kind. I got off the phone feeling better about things all the way around. She told me to RELAX we are like family around here and we are glad to have you.

I had internet problems all last spring and into the summer. I got from the MT manager: Email me and let me know what is going on. You think if I could email I'd be on the PHONE telling you my internet is down? Then my supervising QA whined and whined at me every time I went down, like I had control. Then she dumped work on me because I owed it to those who covered for me to give them a break now that I was back on. They were far from understanding.
My TL said they were mailed yesterday, 01/31 also.

Got mine yesterday.
They are postmarked the 30th.
I just tested yesterday
I sent my resume some time ago, and was finally invited to test yesterday. I was told there were only 4 positions open. This company sounds like everything I've been looking for so my fingers are crossed.
I talked to her yesterday or the day before... nm
I applied yesterday
and got a call this morning. Very prompt.
I just bought yesterday,
some Phillips iPod ear buds from Walgreen's for $20 and I LOVE them! They have 3 different size ear buds you can attach with a little spongy rubber ring that cancels out all background noise. They are comfy, too, as they finally made a small enough ear bud to fit in my little ears. Definitely worth a try!
was emailed yesterday
To set up an interview. I told the person I was availabe today and tomorrow and gave times availabe, but I haven't gotten a confirmation.
I got laid off yesterday...duh
I accepted yesterday
I applied on their website Monday and received an email, then a phone call from the recruiter.  We spoke for almost an hour, all my questions were answered and they sound like a good company.  I had to complete a sheet about my computer and the recruiter said he wanted to discuss accounts with the team leader.  I sent my form back in and he called as scheduled yesterday morning.  The ER account sounds like I will have plenty of work and I accepted.  I then got an offer letter by email and hiring paperwork that I am working on today, I start Monday and just can't wait.  They use Chartnet and from what I have researched that is a productive platform.  I have never had such a professional or prompt response from a company and look forward to having steady work.     Lee.
That's the one that wouldn't come up for me yesterday.
Getting a page load error again today with nothing.
No work yesterday
Sat at PC for my 4 hours, and not one job. Worked crosswords while waiting.
There is a post from yesterday about
midway down the page concerning this same thing. 
I pointed this out yesterday
I believe we're correct. There is no other possible reasonable explanation for the fact that work from ALL accounts began drying up at least 8 weeks ago.

If the grand plan is for Transcend to convert as many clients as possible over to that BeyondTXT or whatever it's called platform, they might have been funneling work over there for that reason, too (to get the voice training portion done before the final transition).

But, yeah...I strongly suspect while we sat scraping for lines 24/7, losing sleep over wondering how we were going to pay our bills, D was giggling like a school girl all the way to the bank.

I posted my first reply yesterday and...
already been accused of a recruiter.  I was shocked...Like I said later on, that is the problem with this field...so much bickering going on at all times. I was just trying to be helpful and offer advice from my personal experience. That was all, but then I got shot down like crazy...
Yes. Mine was in my account yesterday. Did you? nm
Mine was in my account yesterday. Was

thinking payday was the 21st though. 

I just saw an ad yesterday paying over $4,000.00 a month (sm)

Legal secretary with full benefits and right down the street.  Government job!  They only want 2 years' experience.  And it reminded me that this career really is going down the toilet.

Anyway, I told a friend about it and she is applying.

I read yesterday on another MT board that they only pay 6 CPL.
To MO MT- your reply to me yesterday; please read


You answered my post yesterday with a little information about SFG facility.  Could you please email me privately.  I am in SW Missouri.  Thanks

I heard from them yesterday and took a position
Had an interesting e-mail come through yesterday (sm)

from a company calling themselves Transcription Services, LLC from Laurinburg, NC.  Made an appt to talk with them today, but they didn't call between noon and 3 pm.  Does anyone have experience with them?  I tried a search and got way too many unrelated hits.  Left e-mail address for discretion.  Thanks if you can help. 

This was great suggestion, I did the first one yesterday.
The real free site is linked to ftc.gov and it's annualcreditreport.com. Very cool. Thanks for the suggestion about the 4-month gap; sounds great.
didn't work - already tried that yesterday.


So odd - I posted 2 replies yesterday, and now they are gone?
Anyone run out of work yesterday or was the program (sm)

just sooooo slooow it wasn't bringing them up.  It would show no job available and then eventually one would pop up and very, very slowly load.  I couldn't decide if I had ran out of work or what.  There was also an issue with line count program not working yesterday too. Mine didn't add yesterday's work until last night sometime and seems like it was a very low amount of lines, but then with all the waiting for jobs I could have spent that much time being nonproductive.


Seems like issues of some sort or another keep popping up with program/line counter, etc.  Is this normal or unusual? 


I posted it yesterday and it was removed - Sorry!! nm
I got an email yesterday that there was plenty of sm
work to go around, that volumes were up. Maybe you should ask for some more work. As far as office help goes, it doesn't matter to me how many are there because I never have the need to call the office.
I tested yesterday too and can honestly say it was the most
professional test I have ever taken in the 15 years I have been doing this work.  I was really impressed.  I thought it was a difficult test also - and timed which I have not done before - that was a little nerve-wracking!
Strange discussion with them just yesterday
I sent them a resume last week.  Have not taken any test or anything.  Recruiter called, wanted to know if there was anyway I could possibly start this week?  Possibly by Thursday?  Seemed a little weird.  She was nice and all, but I felt it was a little strange that they didn't want to do any testing, check references, or anything. 
ProScript sent me a gift yesterday, SM

I thought that was very nice! I havent gotten a gift from an employer in years.

Thank you ProScript.

I didn't see any email, yesterday?
Since yesterday was Sunday, DD would have gone through this morning
If payday falls on a weekend or a holiday, then direct deposit will go through the next business day. Mine was in my bank account last night around midnight.
I also emailed TransTech yesterday.....
....and haven't received an answer either. I was inquiring in another post whether they hired as an IC, and someone replied and said no, but I would also like to know if they hired for part time work. I like to know these things before I take a long test for nothing. I respect companies that answer emails, even if it does take several days to do it. I'm still waiting.
I got mine yesterday. I really like it and appreciate the fact that they sent them (sm)
But they sent the wrong size and it's way too small and I can't even wear it!  I'm sure it can't be exchanged as they were probably all sent out.  :(
