This includes anyone in a desperate, disabling situation, such as a widow returning to the job market, living in a rural area where there is great DSL service, but not too many local jobs around..  So DISABILITY is probably the key word here.  Also, while there may be PARTS of the job that are exploitative, not all parts ARE, and no one has been forced to accept any home MT position.  It is all choice.  We may choose to allow others to treat us badly because there are some positive aspects to the job.  To some degree, every time you work for someone else, you are being exploited.

I'm not sure if their insurance includes
preexisting or not but it is United Healthcare if that helps at all. Work load was slow over the holidays but right now work it is out of control. We've been on OT since last week due to every account just exploding with work. This work is on the Merit accounts, not sure of EXtext. PTO is pretty good. All the major holidays, plus a floating holiday which you can use for your birthday, and sick days accumulate with hours worked. Been a while since I asked how they figured sick day hours but for every so many hours worked, you get 1 hour of sick day. Hope this helps.
Webmedx is abt the same - PTO includes sm
sick days or vacation time; holidays are separate.
Pay is based on 65 characters and includes

spaces.  Line rate is based on experience, if you have CMT, and shift.  There may be some other things too.  I don't know 100%, but I'm pretty sure they offshore.   Get conflicting stories about accounts depending on who you talk to.  I think pay is average, PTO is accrued based on lines and is available immediately.  You can take in $$ or time off I believe.  Not sure of other benefits because I had already decided after talking to them that I wasn't going to take a position with them, so didn't pay attention to benefits. 

The very short list I have so far includes...sm...

Lee Perfect - but you need to know Emdat software. Lextel - in California. They were paying 7.5 for MT and 4.5 for QA positions. Mediscript Transcription - need your own LD and C-phone. QT - don't think they're hiring, though. Last ad was from 2005. Old posts say trouble making lines there. West Tran Group - you need Word 2003 and they use IntraScript software. ....This is all the info I have. I have no contact info and no emails or website info. This is just a list I've compiled as I've come across them on a search. NM

I did 42 last year but that includes incentive pay.

Acute care includes OPs.
I don't work there but info that I have received includes ... SM

I don't know if they have clinic work.  However, if you are an experienced MT, I would think that they would hire you even if you don't do ops.  They use Doc-Q-Scribe (sp?) for at least one of their big hospital accounts out of Atlanta.  They offer benefits, but I have heard that the health insurance is very expensive.  I would imagine that they are hiring. 

I used to work for the owner years ago when she had another service, and she had the same right-hand man (er, lady LOL) as she does now.  They were always very good to me, and I really wish I still worked for her though I have a good job now somewhere else. 

Good luck, and I hope this helps somewhat. Post back and let us know how it goes. 

My schedule includes a weekend day by choice. I'm

not 100% sure, but I think you had a choice of Sun-Th or Tu-Sat schedule.   We haven't run out of work, but things are staying very caught up, so I would say they aren't hiring.  I do know a new account is coming, but don't know time frame for that.  You can apply through their website and you should get a response within a couple of days at most if they are hiring. 

She includes ER in acute care, so I guess that would make it Basic Five :) nm
monitor, please see this message that includes a personal email addy.
That is what I just said. !0 days PTO, period. That includes vacation, sick days and personal days
They should have paid holidays so that you are paid if you take off. Also should inculde extra hours for sick days and personal days.

That annual raise of .002 is kind of a joke especially when at the same time they upped the minimum line requirement from 10,000 lines to 12,000 lines.

OSi just does not have the qualified people in management positions that I wish to work for.

I am glad that you are happy at OSi and all is working out for you. Their dishonesty and the way they treat people just does not work for me.

Of course they can get by cheaply by hiring unqualified people so that is very good for the owners.
