I have no idea. It is posted on the job seekers board.


I'm sorry. Posted to the wrong board.
Before I get screamed at sorry I posted on the wrong board....
my apologies.
oops..went back 2 far and posted on wrong board
I posted on the wrong board .. sorry. But the bank said since she had my passcode (I stupidly sm
kept it hidden in my billfold) that I am liable.   My concern is that while I am fighting everything, I will end up on the street.  Work had been light and was just trying to turn around, and now this.  Sorry to have whined.  Desperate times, desperate measures, I guess. 
This is the Company Board. You should have posted on tech board. nm
Sorry! Wrong board. Reposted on Main board. NM
Try the Job Seekers board. Many of them sm
indicate that they hire US MTs only.
It looks like on the Job Seekers' board that most
I wonder how many of those clicks results in resumes. Seems like all the companies would be getting inundated with applicants right now.
If you look at the Job Seekers board you will see
your questions.  Also Transcription Relief Services is another company that is always looking. 
See the Job Seekers board, please. (SM)
The job advertisements are very descriptive. You should be able to discern easily who has insurance and who doesn't.

The Company board is for asking about specific companies.

Do you mean the Job Seekers board?
I count 23 job postings in the last week, so I would say it's far from dried up.
MD-IT has an ad on the Job Seekers board that says

Did Shannon have a job to post on the job seekers' board
or did she just want MTs to apply with no details given???  Any info on this one? 
Keystrokes has an ad for a pathology transcriber on the job seekers board. sm
Is Pathology easy to do? I have 8 years in acute care but have never done pathology or radiology and might be interested in a change.
What does "DOE" mean on the job seekers board for the rate to be paid?

None of the ones on the Job Seekers board send work outside the country. They
would not be allowed to advertise if they did.
Anyone have any info on MT Professional listed on Seekers board? nm
I'm surprised the Moderator permitted this on Job Seekers Board..nm

07/28/09 for new MTs, FT & PT, all shifts.  Are they saying the accounts are UNDERSTAFFED?

Naturally, the new hirees will be gooing and gushing all over this board again about how GREAT their accounts are and how  EASY their dictators are.


So was this job ever posted on the job board?
Did anyone see the real job for traveling transcription? I'm just curious because I cannot find it anywhere. Did the administrator remove the original posting for some reason?
One just posted for that on the job board....
Look further down the board, some posted

Some posts were removed??? for some reason, don't know why, nothing offensive or inflammatory.

So 10 reports as they say 2 to 3 hours, that would be 8 to 18 minutes a report, no idea how long reports are,  on unfamiliar dictators, at 2 to 2.5 lines a minute.

These places get out their calculators and think ... HEY!!.

Another job post today, $10-15 an hour they say, $1.10 a page. Really now, 10 to 15 pages an hour.?  It is there on MTStars top of list.  Grab it???  

I am only stating that she posted on another board. I don't know her
one way or the other, you are right. I am not the basher. I just thought that post would clarify what someone else said. That's all. I am not bashing this woman. I am just giving information that I read while posting a question about Transtech on another board
Does anyone know anything about CardioScribes, posted on the job board? sm

I LOVE cardio, but I have never heard of this company.  I sent them my resume, but was just curious if anyone had any experience with them, good or bad.  I see these posts about people working and not getting paid, and it is rather scary.  I enjoy what I do, but not so much that I want to do it for free.

Thanks for your help.

I posted on the main board also - sm

I've worked with MedQuist, Keystrokes, Lee Perfect, AAA Transcription, You See Solutions, using a multitude of platforms - Scribes, Word, WP, Emdat Inscribe, etc.  I've worked as an IC and employee.  I've used 65 character and gross lines.  I worked in the heyday as did many when you could easily get 12 cpl as an IC and employee, but the facts are the facts.  I know earn 9 to 10 cpl, character line since that seems to be the most prevailant.  I do not like it, but I do it. I've left companies because of crappy platforms (at least in my opinion - others loe them) or issues with being paid.  My time is valuable and I will hunt down and find the place that I can make the most.  It's time consuming but worth it in the end when you find your niche.  It can be frustrating and rewarding in the end.   I've earned anywhere from $25 to $50 an hour depending on account, platform, line counting, etc.  I'm currently making $30 an hour with a 65 character coiunt and 9.5 cpl. 

Just like with every career option there are some who are just better at the job than others.  That does not not mean that those who struggle are bad, but someone else can do better and that is not a bad thing either. 

Maybe some people are not truly cut out for  the job even if they truly want it.  Some have higher expectations than others and will never attain the high hourly average.  Some are happy just making $15 an hour.  Everyone has their own needs and expectations.

I do not see why anyone cannot make close to $25 an hour doing this job.  I've been doing it for 20 years - acute care, clinic work, high ESL, etc.  and I've always managed to make $25 an hour or more.  I do not even like the job anymore, but I'm good at it and I make a really good buck doing it.  When I finish my schooling for my next career choice, something I love to do, I'll leave the field knowing full well I will not make near the money I made at MT for quite sometime. 

If you are doing Acute Care with high ESL, maybe you need to switch to something else.  Regardless, the work is out there - you may have to look for it, but if I cannot average $25 an hour, then I do not want the work and I'll look  elsewhere until I find the right fit.  I've  had to do it before when a company changed platforms, but I eventually found something else and moved on.  My time is precious and I'm greedy. 

I posted this on the main board as well, but --
take note. There is an error in the above mentioned link. There is a space between con and gress. I had to remove that space in order to get to the site. congress should be all one word, not con gress. just saying. thanks
Why is this posted on the Company board?
sorry, wrong board. nm
He posted comments on the word board
on Jan 25 that there was a lot of misinformation about his company and then made the statement about people going to the source to find out the truth.  I think he and empty pockets may be fast friends.
I posted a response on the main board to you
Please read it! Big difference between identify theft from resumes and PHISHING for info to possibly commit identify theft. If you read the article, it says they take the info from the resumes and send PHISHING emails out to people to get more information to commit the crimes, they cannot just commit the crimes with the general info alone that is in the resumes. Obviously, you should never click a link in an email unless you're completely sure who it is from and should never just give your SS# and bank/cc account information out to someone.
Thank you to all the KS people who posted below - Love this board! NM
I posted this on the main board. Though I would post it here as well.

If you want mandatory credentialling, then do something about the pay range for MTs!  8 cpl does not cut it when you consider the knowledge and education required for a qualified MT.

Coders in the midwest (where I live) who have their CCS make $20/hr with little to no experience!  Do not for one minute compare the CMT to the CCS!!  AHIMA is taking care of its coders, making sure coders and records techs are acknowledged for their expertise in the heath information industry and compensated for achieving their credentials.  The ADHI only wants our money.  They have done absolutely nothing for the MT who is credentialed --- 8 cpl or 9 cpl!?!?!!? --- does that sound like we are highly regarded health information professionals to you? 

She posted on the main board as well - ridiculous
Not a moderator, but this is the wrong board for that
oops,sorry wrong board nm
oops - very sorry, I'm on wrong board...LOL...n/m

Oops! we are on the wrong board here! Sorry!
We better take it to the other side!
Oops! Wrong board.
Thought I put on the wrong board and thanks
for this posting. Now I have the information I wanted. When the above posting talked about the employer, I was asking about the independent person- was not asking about employer and what they are supposed to do. This posting helps me out. Thanks again.
