Think you still have to go to NJ to train. Was offered a very low per-page rate several years ago.
Low work?? Hmm - check backlog page - lots of OT offered right now. nm
Are you on the ChartMatrix side mebbe?
Per page rate
What is a good rate per page?  Usually you don't see a rate per page rate, just lines.  Any responses would be appreciated!
Are you in NJ? You have to go therre to train. They used to pay a low per-page rate, don't know
They used to pay a low per-page rate & the subsequent partial pages
You have to go to NJ to train and pick up their computer & she pays a low per-page rate. nm
I was offered a very large rate of pay, so you
This is outrageous for VR to be offered at this rate
I love VR but it takes a lot of time, energy and the wisdom to get it right. Why in the world would a company stoop this low? At 4 cents a line, I have to go as fast as I can for the hrs I work to make a decent salary. It is not easy, it is not a newbie thing and it definitely takes the knowledge to be able to do. It is not just words there. You have to know what fits just as if you were on a straight report. I might just send them an email asking are they for real. You could really not make a decent salary at 2.5 cents, even 3 is too low. Most platforms are, from what I read on this board, horrific and it would take more time with lot of people working on it more time to correct than would be worth it.
no, I was offered 60% of my line rate sm
which is quite a bit more than 4 cpl. That is what I thought too. Maybe experience has something to do with it? I don't know. That is what I was offered and I am just wondering about the company etc. Anything you can tell me would sure help.
Pays per page, top rate less than what I made 10 yeasr ago, benefits high
I also thought the offered rate was too low and didn't accept it. nm
If they offered you a position, didn't they give you a pay rate?
Always email first, ask lowest to highest rate offered.
I bet they offer prob. 7 cents if that.
I routinely email lowest-to-highest rate offered sm
and did in April. Rate only 8 cents, to low for me.
webmedix- I have 25 years exp., was offered low rate of pay. Heard it is a good company. nm
Not at all. Worked for the NJ company. Used to pay by the page or partial page. Don't know about
Some comments on page 2 of this board, middle of the page. nm
there is a thread further down this page or possibly the next page
I transcribed for Compuscribe years ago. Had no problems, just low pay but no problems.
Go to the bottom of the page and click on a page
number to get the most recent archives and then can do Ctrl F and do a search for WebMedX.   I wouldn't call them a small national.  
Page 2, scroll down towards the middle of the page, NM
Some WMX posts on page 4 here near the top of the page. nm
for MQ STAT employees tier rate applies to ME rate as well and how calcluated?
for a STAT MQ employee:  Does anyone know if the tier rate is going to be applied to the ME rate as well or are they going to go with the 80% of the MT rate for each tier level?  If the tier rate doesn't apply as well to the ME rate then going by the 80% of the MT rate is less than if the tier rate would be applied.  I'm sure that MQ is going to go by whatever keeps money in their pockets.  Guess this is a question for the supervisor tomorrow.
Their line rate was less than my current nat'l rate, even with mucho experience. nm
no msg
VR rate is 1/2 rate of traditional typing,I believe it is 4 cents line.

I took that to mean you can get to that rate after 1600 lines and that is not the starting rate.
Webmedx ASR rate is 70% of your regular line rate. sm
So if you are on a 9 cpl account, you get 6.3 CPL plus any bonus / incentives / shift differential.
From the current editing rate not typing rate
is the VR line rate 60% of the regular typing line rate?
I don't see that on their web page
Take a look at the next page (sm)
Maybe the people aren't still there, but they're experiences weren't good. Companies don't change that radically. If there are problems like that, it's because of major philosophical problems in the company. If after reading those posts you'd still want to pursue testing with them, well, all I can say is good luck. I'm sure we'll be hearing from you later.
Pay by the page
Is this good or bad? Does anyone have any experience with this type of pay?
Pay by the page
Thank you. It's $2.50 per pay page on a sliding scale. I do not really understand it and that's why I do not really know what questions to ask. Thanks for the input.
per page

To me it there are too many variables to quote a per page rate, font size, margins, etc.  You can have anywhere from 50 to 66 lines for full page depending on margins and font, so at .012 per line, that is quite a difference.  Also what do you do for 20 or 30 lines,  as they could both be half a page?   That is just my opinion though.   Could work in your favor and could not.  If they use a small Arial 10 font, takes a lot more lines to fill up a page than Courier 12.




I Get $2.75 per page
I type for an insurance company doing claim tapes and I charge by the page. It works out well for me. I type in Tahoma 10. Even if a page is just one line long I get paid the full rate.
i see it a little further down on this page
pay per page
Pay by the page
How on earth do you charge by the page? I have never been paid by the page but only by the line. Luckily, I found the job through the local paper and they will let me work from home (only 5 minutes away). There is a big psychiatric hospital down there street. Thanks for all of your help. I about gave up on transcription.
Pay by the page
I meant there is a big psychiatric hospital down the street from where I live and they usually charge by the page, but I have never charged by the page, but only by the line. Any suggestions?
by the page
The margins per page are 3 inch on the top and 3 inch left margin. Does that make a difference do you think?
Look down the page a little.....

Keystrokes is really popular right now. 

you are all over this page
with negative comments about a lot of companies.  Probably not a very good idea to let this recruiter know who you are by e-mailing straight from this site. Just a helpful hint.
pay by page
Does anyone work for a transcription company that pays by the page instead of cents per line?  If so, could you please email me.  Thanks.
Yep and now it's a whole page +2.
On what page are they? If they are there, I will
Further down this page, 1/3 way?, you
will find a message from the recruiter, Carlotta Buckley, with that signature.

I, along with others, have elabored myself on MDI, which is probably on next page now.

It is a great company that will do everything they can to take care of the MT. They have a positive QA team, etc. Personally i think they are the best company around.
Same page
I only wish more people would get on the page with us.  I fail to see  how some people can stick their head so far in the sand. 
No I'm not QA and I think we are on the same page. sm
My original post was in regards to Bayou MT's comment that we are not paid to look up doctor's names, unfamiliar names, terminology, etc.

P.S. I've run into the same QA types. The absolute worse was one from YOG. She actually called me on the phone and put me down.
at the top of the page --sm
there is a Google search bar. just beneath that are two buttons, . web and . MT stars. make sure the button by mt stars is checked and then type in the name of the company in question and click the search button beside it. that should bring up new and old postings about the company.
$1.00 a page?
You MUST be kidding!  What an insult!
$1.00 per page

Yes, I thought it was very low, too.  And she pointed out that you make the $1.00 page if you are very good.  I thought that was hilarious.  It was like she meant to convey that only the very top transcriptionists could ever hope to attain that job with such an exhorbitant amount of money as $1.00 per page!  I had to hang up quickly before I laughed out loud!  No hard feelings with them, though, and I wasn't all that insulted.  I wish them well.  They just don't have clue about how to hire quality transcriptionists and pay them well.  Of course, that problem is a common one in this industry, but they just seem to have even less of a clue than most companies about paying us properly for quality work.
