Saturday work

IC looking for Saturday work with a few hours during the week possible.  I have 8+ years clinic transcription.  Would be possibly willing to do ER notes. Thanks.

I got mine on Saturday
I got my stub in the mail on Saturday and it was availabe direct deposited into my bank and this was my first check! Hope this helps.
You should receive it Saturday. Sometimes
It IS Saturday. You might not here back from anyone until
YES, they do, all day Saturday and Sund
Saturday banking
Banks generally do not post anything (debits or credits) on Saturdays but if they do at all it would be debits not credits (they would make money this way). My bank is open on Saturday too for convenience but nothing is worked up until Monday morning as the 'main corporate' bank is the one that actually does the work.
It is DD and usually in my bank on Saturday before
They think if they post on a Saturday, we won't
got my check on Saturday
I am not worried--
Looking for a Saturday position
Does anyone know of a company that might take on an MT for Saturday work?  I have a 40 hour job, but I would like to pick up some extra work PT for Saturdays as an IC.   Thanks
Saturday a.m. Anyone at TT have work?
Is it just me, or are there others out there without work this morning?  Trying to get paycheck in because system goes down tomorrow night last day of payperiod again, and wanting to get lines.  Is it just me?  Thanks for letting me know either way... getting paranoid over here.
I work for every Saturday

I'm an IC, split shifts morning and evening hours during the weekdays. I have off Fridays and Sundays. I work third shift hours every Saturday for 8 hours, ending usually around 8 a.m. (or later if I choose to keep working). I earn a weekend differential when I reach 800 lines on Saturday and I don't have to share the work with any other MT, be micromanaged or interrupted.

With my regular cpl rate (which is above the norm offered by many MTSOs) plus weekend differential, it is well worth it to me to work overnight every Saturday morning.

The rest of Saturday is mine to spend with my kids as I please. I have been doing this for 2 years now and I actually prefer third shift hours.

I felt the same as you did about weekends and family. I had worked many years in a corporate setting prior to transitioning to MT over a decade ago. I always had weekends off. I wasn't about to sacrifice my weekend family time for any job, even if it is a job that allows me to work at home.

Trust me, it's not an easy schedule to keep and I do get tired come 7 p.m. Saturday, but being a single mother and sole supporter of 2 pre-teen boys, it works well for me. I have to do what I have to do to provide for the 3 of us. Saturdays allow me to earn more and seeing my earnings for that 1 day makes it well worth it for me to wake up at midnight every Saturday for work.

Best of luck to you. I hope you can find a position that allows you weekends off to spend with your family. I, like many other MTs, had to create a situation that would allow for both.
No - I had worked Saturday through Wednesday
took Thursday/Friday off and tried to get back onto system Saturday and found myself totally locked out.  I know there is a way to take your ID from the work queues and just give you access to your lines and completed work so this was totally unnecessary in my view.  I seriously doubt it is legal to withhold that information from an MT.
PS This was Saturday the 15th, payday
Received mine on Saturday 2/2/08
My check from TransTech has never been on SATURDAY !
Something is definitely going on.  I'll bet the new payroll person inhouse is doing payroll this pay period.  The outsourcing company did such a good job for us MT's.  Had to see it go.
Mine has always been in on Saturday and not before. Since payday is not until
TT has it's faults but they've never been a single day late on a paycheck and have paid early for holidays many times. I don't think they can be blamed for not paying us early.
Wasn't on Saturday, but some might be happy SM
to know that Enterprise has been upgraded a number of times over the past year alone, and the clunkiness has pretty much been nicely smoothed out. It's a good platform.
oops! should be "transcribing"..it's Saturday!! nm

if the paydate falls on Saturday
we got paid friday. if it fell on Sunday, we got paid on Monday. that's how it was where I worked. That is also how our bank takes our mortgage payment. If the due date is Saturday, they take it on Friday. If the due date is a Sunday, they take it on Monday.
Considering you initiated the process on a Saturday -- sm
...and there's often a somewhat implicit business hours (or days) when talking about turnaround times, personally I'd wait and if I didn't hear something tomorrow (Tues.) I'd give them a call on Wednesday. But that's just me.
KS just TODAY (Saturday) lost an sm
account. Very very hard account and all of a sudden we are not doing it anymore.

I have never had them call on my days off or anything and I am an older veteran MT. This account was stressful though.
I work both Saturday and Sunday...
every single weekend.  I have for many years.  I have 1 child at home.  How do I do it?  I just do it.  I do a lot of things in life that aren't easy, but I get by.  I knew when I became an MT that I was entering the medical field, which does, contrary to what some people may believe, operate on a 24/7/365 schedule in most instances.  People do get sick/injured on weekends.   If you aren't satisfied with working weekends, your best bet is to find clinic work.  Then, your only complaint may be the pay, which is generally lower than acute care because the work is considered easier.  Oh, well, I guess you can't win.
shift diff after 5 pm weekdays and all day Saturday nm
If my payday falls on Saturday we are usually paid
on Friday, if Sunday, then we are paid on Monday. We also have a pay schedule that is published at the first of the year so we know when our paydates are.
Patient = Patience Thank goodness it is Saturday.
Wow - are you the same mtMom I talked to Saturday on Gab board? sm
Either way - good for you! You have to take a break from this job sometimes. It has a way of making you lock yourself into your own little self-imposed prison without realizing it. I have taken breaks and I am back at it for a year now and I do get bored but not burned out yet ;-) I'm sure I will have to take another break some day. Email me if you want an email buddy ;-)
Getting afraid of waking up on Friday/Saturday
Every weekend now, a flurry of e mails how we better work the weekend or find something else. I am downright weary. What about all those times we did not have any work, or when there is no work when we are scheduled. Double standard here but not for the MT. When you say jump I need to ask how high. Sorry about this, but I am wanting to avoid my e mail come the weekend. The threats are just too much for my stomach.
No email of any kind here. Was off Friday and Saturday
not sure if I should stay up all night waiting for something or get some extra sleep!!
Looks like they require everyone to work Saturday also. Not an issue for me but maybe for some.

Work schedules:

Full time:           1) Tuesday - Saturday     

                        2) Monday-Thursday, and Saturday   


Part time:          To be determined but must include Friday or Saturday


As you can see from the above schedules, the transcription work increases at the end of each week. 

Monday is our slowest day, and Friday and Saturday are our busiest days. 

under new hire plan, Saturday/Sunday all day, 1cent more
Paid every other Monday. Mine is usually in the bank on Saturday. nm
They have called me twice and I have not yet called them back
Per your recommendation, I just might. Thank you.
I called and called and e-mailed my STM. When that got no

results I went over her head.  Got another account, but with 3 accounts still not enough work to get in more than 20 hours/week.  I worked a shift that was part 2nd/part 3rd.  Some days OT was offered, but then there wouldn't be work the next day. 

Ditto.. Over 13 years experience working in hospitals doing all types of reports, currently working
for a national etc.. and Spheris told me I didnt have the qualifications. What cracked me up was the hospital I was working at at the time contracted some of our work out to them.. What a joke..I was good enough to work for a hospital and gave them work, yet not qualified enough for them. What is wrong with this picture.
MQ same situation. No pay for working holidays, no pay for working weekends nothing. Now noone works
much anymore and so they jerk the work out of the accounts to some place that throws it back with a lot of bad bad quality. This is the NE region. I dont know what the others are doing.
No one called you a joke, just called the post a joke because
we all know better, but you're entitled to your opinion.  You're the one insulting saying those of us who don't like SS probably couldn't cut it and that is the reason for our complaints.   You would be hard pressed to find anyone who ever worked for SS to agree with you about how wonderful they are.   They aren't getting new accounts, yet they always have an ad running - umm, let me think why that is. 
working from home is awesome but working for DSG is not...
horrible dictators, sound quality is bad, no answers to emails and they run out of work consistently...that is just my experience though...
When I was called ...
I called Corporate back. I asked why were getting a call to verify we had received the letter. I was told that they wanted to verify the correct addresses for every employee, making sure each had received the letter, because our packets will be mailed out on 9/30 and are individualized as far as our base rates.

Personally, I would imagine that they have reviewed years of experience of MTs as well as the difficulty of accounts, as they have already stated, and come out with a tiered level of base rates -- the more experience you have the higher your rate as well as the more difficult the account you work on, the higher the pay...pay commensurate with experience and difficulty of work.
I bet if you called them they

would tell you.


They just called me AGAIN!!!
OMG! I am going insane! I just got yet ANOTHER call from a different person at SPI saying that she got a call from the hospital that I used to transcribe for saying that they had all these stat reports that were way out of TAT and no one at all on that account was working! Go figure! We all quit!!!! I don't know how much more I can take of these calls. I told her that I had better not receive anymore of these calls as I have made it more than clear that I don't work there anymore and haven't in 5 months!!! UGH!!!
Yes, it was a little different for me at first, too, but I called
Wendy and she explained it to me. Pretty simple now. Give her a call. She is always extremely helpful. Good luck.
Have you called them? They are more than
a little disorganized lately, but a phone call seems to take care of the problem. 
Someone called me...
The female I spoke with asked if I could produce 1300 lines/day (I said yes). She asked about my computer system (it met the required specs). She asked if I had an updated Cardiology book (I said yes). She said someone would call me soon--that was last month.
some guy called....
and he expected me to start right then and there-no paper work, contract, nothing. What made it worse, in the middle of him explaining the system and wanting me to start then, he kept telling me to hold on because he kept getting calls. He finally said he would call me right back (in the middle of me learning the system). I never answered his call.
Jim also called me for radiology hire. Anyone out there ever work for them? So many out there that just are not worth the aggravation
Called them...
I called Silentype today, as is my practice when I am job hunting to call and see how their office is run etc. I asked for HR/Recruiting and was told No I'm sorry, not today... and they hung up. What a bunch of idiots, what if I were an MD calling for some reason to speak with HR about a specific MT? SKip them :)
It's also called
supply and demand. There are so many MTs out of work and looking right now that they don't need to pay top dollar, even to the cream of the crop. There are too many MTs to choose from.
They called me...
I think thats what the meeting was going to be about too
I called my supervisor...
I really struggled with the decision to quit. I liked the company (a national) and accounts, but I could no longer handle the 20-hour minimum for PT as I already work a FT job and it just became too much. She was very nice about it and understood. She is a good supervisor and I felt I owed her that much. I did give a 2 week notice.
