Nope to your answer, strange no reply to email

In Reply to: Did you post above as 'Going Thru' - sm

Had nothing to do with anything except being called management on here. Seems like it is either being called management which I am not, inept which I am not, so on and so on but really did not expect anyone to answer the email, people just like to throw out nonsense.

I got an instant reply and then nothing after that. Strange I thought.
Nope. She just doesn't answer me. nm
Nope, not at all. I'll answer whatever I can. nm

I never got the email and got laid off yesterday... strange... sm
I wonder what is going on. Was it the one with all the unemployment info in it?
for your reply and here is my answer
I am in a similar boat as you. I believe I am truly being used and forced to spend more time to make up that $15.00. Yes, it was a change in line rate. Right now, they tell me it is a management decision. But that I am so fast that I can make it up. Sure, but it will take more time. Sure you can make $200 a day instead of $100 if you double your hours. It took me ten minutes to make her admit I was getting that pay cut. They dance around it.
I am with YOU and what I have come to decide is that rather than work more hours to make that $15 up, I will work for another company and when they want help, I will say, SORRY but I have my second job to go to.
Either that OR, I will tell them that I am my own business and as manager I have decided to raise my line rate.
I have no contract.
I am an excellent worker.
This is not the first time I got the screw for working hard. It happened to me at IBM ALSO, yes I frigging BM. I ended up working two jobs because the person next to me called in sick 3 days of every week. That's right THREE DAYS of every week, becasue she was a black female, they were terrified to fire her. So sucker me did TWO JOBS and in my own department they added from 8 bosses up to 13 by the time I quit exhausted. My problem was that I kept keeping on top of the work until I almost had a breakdown. Does anyone care NOOOO, all they saw was that I was doing two jobs AND supporting 13 bosses of my own. I am ready to KILL MYSELF and i am not kidding. I am so angry and it never gets better.

Since all you got was a rude reply and not even an answer,
I'll answer you: Yes, they offshore to India.
OMG! You'll reply HERE but won't answer my emails... sm
about when you might pay me for work I did 3 months ago for you????????? 
I just wanted to let you know that I did reply to their email.
I basically said that I found it very unprofessional to not even put the name of the company in the email. I also told them that 6.5 cpl is a very low rate and I could not live on that and feed my child. I told them that with the amount of experience I have, that was an insult. I also let them have it about not paying for spaces. I was professional in my email, but I believe I made them understand that they are barking up the wrong tree and that their payment practices are an insult to all MTs.
I got a reply to the email I sent to management s/m
so for now I'm going to hang tight.  Most likely continuing to post on the boards without asking management for an explanation is counter productive.  I always believe in going directly to the horse's mouth for info.  Good luck to all.
You did better than me - I applied and sent a FU email but no reply. nm
Use the Reply By Email on the post.

Did anyone email this poster and get an answer?
Send me an email and I will answer you :) nm
Leave an email address, and will reply
Any information on Medivoxx - answer here or by email nm
I'll answer questions, email me. nm
No time to answer her email, but apparently
time to hang here on this board, LOL.
darned if I know, I can't even find the ad now. The email reply I got was HR in Springfield, MA

You may reply to my message by email if you dont mind. nm
Their web site is dated 2002. I never got an email reply when I sent one within
Email me privately. I think we work for the same company and I have an answer for you.
I went through all of this about 6 months ago and if it's the same company I'll give you the lowdown.
Would a current TransHealth MT (preferably a happy one LOL) pls email me to answer some questions?
email above
sorry dont give out my email address but happy to answer questions here

Nope .. email on 1/18 promised "within the next week." Here we are, 1 week later and no info.
LOL! Is IS a very strange company run by very strange people. I have had that
very thought before and it made me laugh to see you refer to it as strange, too. Thank goodness it's not just me!

Good luck Candy!
nope, not me, NOPE Worked to hard and long to sm
know what I know, my expertise is worth more and constant updating . Keep looking on the job boards. Email and ask if VR, pay for space and lowest to highest line rate for the POSITION (generic question) not I have 20 years exp. etc
*Strange*; nothign strange about it.

TT management does not answer questions that you ask them; only answer those they want to answer.

I know, work for a long time and tried asking questions, but they just beat around the bush and don't answer the true question that you presented to them.

Maybe it is kite flying weather where you are !!!

whups - sorry, reply to wrong "who wants to be" reply
if I only had a brain...

Again, sorry to BTDT.
I can answer that question with a simple answer!
Strengths - none.
Weakness - all.

That's strange, I received an e-mail from someone from this board about scoping, thought it was you .  And, I replied to that person, who knows who I talked to (and if she received it LOL).

How strange

Can you tell me who contacted you?  I just thought it was strange that they sent me a contract without having me test first.

That is strange!
Where do you work? Are you employee, statutory or IC? 
That does seem very strange. I'll have to poke around. I don't really even know of any other MT boards!
That is strange because they were
Maybe they are overstaffed....
What do you mean? Seems like strange
Something strange is going on!
I just signed on this morning and there was nothing to do. I e-mailed the CEO and it will be interesting. I am almost positive that the account I have been working on has been gone, but why have they not told me? Are they embarrassed? The only e-mail I got this week was that work is very slow and that they hope to be getting back up to speed. I was not told that I was let go, fired, etc. You would think a company would at least tell their MTs if their account was taken away. I've been sitting here for 8 days with absolutely nothing to do. Very strange.......
Something strange going on with this
I was contacted by a woman who seemed knowledgeable about the cardiology accounts - I told her I was very interested. She wanted me to email my bank account information for direct deposit without any documents i needed to sign. I told her I was uncomfortable doing that with just her email address and the phone # I had did not even state her name, just the phone number. I told her I would email her to see if she received my email (not my personal information), she did not email me back. I called the # she gave me and left a message to email me and never heard back from her. She had told me my resume was forwarded from Cardioscribe. I emailed Cardioscribe to ask about this person and have not heard back from them. This is really scary.
It is strange. I know when I run out SM
on a weekend or at night I can call the help desk and get another account to work on.  The last time I truly ran out of work was Christmas last year.
That's strange because I
didn't need anything special for the platform.  You're talking about apex right?  I think it's just online and connected to their server in there office.  It doesn't have anything to do with using Word.
It IS strange. sm

If the person supposedly got paid everything they were owed before, how did they manage to be owed another $5000 in a month?  If one was supposedly owed $12,000 from this MTSO and they got their money, why would they still work for this MTSO? 

Yes, very strange
About a month ago, I sent in my resume and was set up for their testing.  I tested for them and got a call.  They told me I did well on their acute care test and they just wanted me to test on their clinic test.  Did that.  Didn't hear anything and I sent two e-mail letters letting them know I completed their testing, which was about 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything from them since!
Very strange, that's where I'm looking.
Nevertheless, there's no need for dark side to be so mean.

Lots of nasty on the board today, must have been a bad Monday.
They not only require calendars from us as to what days we will work but also that they be 60 days in advance. You can imagine what this does to any social and/or family life. I did not mind that as long as I could earn a living, but the last four months have been pitiful. What I want to know is where did the work go? Are we just supposed to keep checking every hour for 12-20 hours a day? This isn't working for me at all.
very strange
that you can't use any of your editing tools on the VR reports. The company I work for encouraged expanders, etc. They want you to edit these reports as quick as you can to keep TAT. The more you produce, the more money they make.

I know the pay is less, but you will be able to produce more lines than with straight typing. Maybe not to starting off, but you will after you get use to it.

I don't VR is going anywhere soon. MTSOs will do whatever is needed to get accounts.

Here's my strange experience
I had a recruiter from a company (initials PS) tell me on a second interview that she wasn't going to hire me because I asked too many questions. Same recruiter swore that this company didn't offshore. I ended up getting the job but wish I would have paid attention to the red flags and run the other way.
I think it sounds strange but it is a way to
No telling how far I will go. I know that Florence has been pushing this and she wants me to work with her which I am honored to do. I really hate to say this here but it does look like I am going to be replacing one QA and there are two more. I feel a little uncomfortable but at least I will have a long happy career in QA at OSI. I am very greatful for that.
How strange. I just got through posting
and they called!LOL! They told me they would be calling me back at the end of the week. Wish I could wait that long. Oh well.
That is pretty strange...

that with your years of experience Axo offered you 7 cents!!  I have 10 years total MT experience and they offered me 9.5 to start and said after 30 days they would review and possibly bump it up to 10...

That is the thing that really irks me about this transcription business.  There really isn't any standard as far as pay goes and it seems you just have to get lucky to get a good line rate....I've had other places offer me anywhere from 6 cents up.  No way I am working for 6 cents...

They have a very strange pay scale and no one
can quite figure it out.  Very hard to get lines, unable to make any money.  Lots of turnover.  They are also currently training women in Trinidad to be MTs so it is only a matter of time before the jobs follow. 
Not strange... using keystrokes... sm

I work for a company who computes pay by Keystrokes (not the company Keystrokes, that's different).  For example, the average range when I started working there was about 0.0014 - 0.0016 per keystroke.  Now, this is easier than it sounds... It's based on a 65-character line, just like most places - counting spaces, etc.  If you multiply 0.0014 x 65 - that equals about 9.1 cents a line, which isn't shabby pay.  If you do 65,000 keystrokes that day, that's 1000 lines (65,000 keystrokes divided by 65 is 1000)  that's $91 dollars a day.  If your daily quota is reasonable, you could be making some nice money.  Hope this helps.


So you take what you were offered, and, depending on quotas for keystrokes during the pay period
