golden child! LOL! good one. nm
Would I tell my child
I would tell my child that determination is a necessary start. I would also tell them that a PROPER education is key and to beware of shoddy or inferior schools, especially in the field of MT. The field is just too competitive and there are too many good schools. I do not care what sacrifice I had to make (second mortgage, second job, borrow from family), I would see that my child went to any 1 of the big 3. I have done recruiting and I know how some of these lesser schools are viewed .
You must have seen the ad that has the woman with the child on her lap - sm
That's a joke. All the pictures show the moms with the kids on their laps transcribing away. DOES THIS SEEM REALISTIC TO YOU?? But yet, people fall for it! I have been doing this for 15 years and make $62,000, but I PAID MY DUES AND WORKED MY BUTT OFF to get there. I worked in a hospital with others around me to help me out, when I was confident I left and worked at home, now I'm doing my own thing.
Nothing wrong with a 70's child!
Who are you to say that her apology shouldn't be accepted? Wow, yourself.
My taxes pay for your child
Here again our taxes are paying for you having children -- tired of it.  People that get money back or even more than they pain all due to having kids -- we pay for their children.  No wonder we have such a deficit and such a work ethic, -- they want everyone to take care of them -- so tired of that.
Hot Child In The City

But just think how much easier it'll be to look at that electric bill!  I keep ours over 80, but I'm the opposite...65 and lower and the heat is ON!

I'm an uneducated child who..:
Makes $5000 consistently! LOL. BTW, it helps to learn teenage slang so you know what's going on with your kid. Did I finally shut you up or what? Cheers!
or a selfish child...
that's what my kids used to say until I taught them that they need to care about other people, too. We need to work together, folks.
I have 1 child at home
I used to try to work very early, but my accounts have no work early any more, so now I work through the day around nap times or whenever I can squeeze a minute in. It is not easy at all, but the alternative is paying for daycare, so I keep struggling through. I keep hoping it will get easier.
I love my children but having a child does not mean
everything is honey and sunshine. I really think nothing anymore about people who say they do not want. I think they are being realistic about a job you give yourself to for 18+ years, sometimes with not the most pleasant of outcomes in a relationship when a person who wants other things strives to have what they want and what they need. I used to think people who said no children were selfish- I understand their statements now. Motherhood is very much played up as far as I am concerned. Most of these posts are speaking from having young babies, toddlers before teen years and grown- those are the really good years. No pity needed nor wanted. My children had a very priviledged upbringing.
Was your child so sick you have to permanently
stay home or could you have returned to your job with just a small amount of time off? A good inhouse job would be hard to give up unless totally necessary but by now that inhouse might have outsourced anyway. I had 2 that did. I do not read the board but what is the going price now? I work parttime now and make over $20 an hour as independent for a national.
FMLA for the birth of a child
I work for Spheris and am questioning their FMLA policy. They are telling me that while I'm eligible for UP TO 12 weeks of FMLA, they are only approving 6 weeks after the birth of my child. According to what I read and understand about FMLA, for the birth of a child you are entitled to the full 12 weeks but HR is telling me that it's up to them to decide what I am able to take off and right now they feel I only need 6 weeks unless they have a doctor's note to extend it (which my doctor will not provide as there is no medical reason at this time). Everyone else I know gets the full 12 weeks and has never had a problem with their employers so I'm wondering who is right.
I also have a special needs child, but my company routes

our work so that one person can't do lots and lots of minutes and there not be any for the others.  Usually there is plenty of work for everyone to do lots and lots of "extra" minutes.   There have been rare days where there wasn't a lot of extra work, usually due to the hospital system being down, and I may be a couple of hundred lines short because there needed to be some work for everyone, but usually the next day there was plenty to go around.  Unfortunately most companies just want the work done and doesn't care who does it.  If someone stays up all night to work that is better for TAT, which is a major concern with most companies these days. 


If ya think $877/month for empl+child is fair..go for it

Just thing of ABducting a child..take a way. ADDuc
Child labor laws haven little or nothing to do with it. sm
If children aren't developing a decent work ethic, or expect things handed to them, that's something they're learning at home (or, rather, /not/ learning at home). I'd look first to the parents before I'd start blaming outside influences.
"How to avoid your child while you work"
I had forgotten about that. I was so disgusted about the other OSi tactics but that little jewel was in the back of my mind. My baby means everything to me and I will avoid OSi while I work is the bottom line.
My child is insured by her father, but I do not have insurance
and as far as work availability. I have worked for about 4 different companies in the last year. Things start off well, plenty of work, and then all of a sudden the work dries up. Currently, I have 3 backup accounts, and yet still out of work. Tired of hearing about slow downs. When I worked directly for hospital, both while I was in-house and at home, we had slow downs. They lasted a day or two at specific times of the year. We could use our PTO to take time off. With these companies, there is no backup for no work...no work = no pay. I cannot depend on my income at all since losing my hospital job. I have not made anywhere close to what I used to make and Im just totally frustrated. The economy of the state I live in is such right now that jobs are few and far between and the unemployment rate is very high right now. Feel like I am running out of options.
Agree. Child at work. Run along, little Initial Capser. nm
I don't think it is acting like a spoiled child to share your experience...
the original poster asked the question, we are just sharing our side of the story...
Dont they make you feel like a child with the threatening emails?
They also offer paternity leave and also both leaves for adoption of a child.
I love these people.
pregnancy is a disability when you have complications/C-section/ and even child birh is a procedure.
So just because you didnt get money for your pregnancy, then just get over it.

I had a horrible time with both of my pregnancies and could not work even though I wanted and needed to.

People can get off of work for 6 weeks for drug treatment, mental angious, etc. Those are not disabilities but are conditions that warrant time off.

I think someone is turning green with envy and doesnt handle life well.
Golden Isles
I worked for GI for a short time. I left because the benefits were being misrepresented at the time. There were none in place and hadn't been for a long while.

Aside from that though, I found them to be a great little company!
Golden Isles
What type of transcription do you work on with Golden Isles? Just wondering.
Golden Isles
I don't know much about them, but they turned me down and said I didn't have enough experience.  I have 10 years.  Glad I didn't go with them because now I am a QA director of a small company.  They missed out!
Golden Isles
service out of georgia??
golden isles
One more thing... are they strict about you working specific hours? I have been I.C.for so long,that may be hard for me!
Golden Isles

anyone working for Golden Isles, please email me.  I have some really good questions that I need to ask a current MT with the large cancer account.


Golden Isles MTs

Are there any current MTs out there working at Golden Isles that I could get some information from? 

Thanks very much.


Golden Isles

Just wondering if anyone out there works for them, likes it, if they offer benefits, DD, etc. 


Golden Isles
I have been working for them for 4 years now.

inquring on Golden Isles

Hi!  I am a new MT and trying to find a company that possibly provides the hardware and software for the job.  I want to ask if the Golden Isles is still hiring and if do they have a website? 

Golden Isles Transcription - sm

For anyone who has worked there long enough to form an opinion!  How is work availability?  QA people?  How flexible are they with scheduling?  Do they allow vacation time?  (I realize this is probably not paid). Decent pay scale?  Do they pay on time?  TIA!!

Golden Isles is the best place I have (sm)
worked and I have worked for a few. Great people!! gimtnet.com is the site.
Golden Isles Transcription -sm

Could you give me their website address? Cant find them through google. I would like to find out more about this company.


good or bad on golden isles
From looking back on the screens, it looks like to me that this company is a great company to work for!!!!! Anyone else working for them right now and think so?
Are you talking about Golden Isles? sm
I worked for them briefly, and I didn't have to have a second phone line. Lots of ESLs for 8 cents a line is why I left.
Golden Isles Transcription

Need information on this company.  Pros and cons, please.  What kind of platform, average starting cpl, how are they to work for?


Golden Isles Medical

This company is probably one of the worse to work for, late/incorrect checks, make it very difficult to get line count without working 10+ hours a day.  I've been doing this for 15 years and never had a problem until I started (and finished) working for them!  Good luck with tech help - they're always on vacation.

P.S. They don't even advertise anymore on here because of they're reputation.

Don't think she was portraying a golden company. She
By the way, I work for Spheris too and I'm not very happy about it. This woman just stated her opinion. Doesn't seem like a management plant. They have those on the Indian MT message boards! LOL!
Golden Isles (GIMT)
Any info on this company?  Not much in archives.  Do they have they have VR?  Easy to work for?  How is pay.  TIA.
Yes, I am aware of it. sm
I struggled and struggled when I first discovered my company was offshoring, but then I realized that I have bills to pay and a family to feed; which comes first for me. I cannot afford to just give up 5 years with a company and start over with new docs, new accounts, etc. It was taken a little while, but in all honesty, the work that I edit from India is pretty good. There are a few things that still throw them for a loop, but for the most part, they are not as bad as you would think! I actually do way better doing editing/QA than I did transcribing, so this is where I stay.
(from above), as they must be aware of them by now.
I'm an IC with DSG - now aware they do this.
sorry - s/b noT aware they do this.
I was not aware FN had VR
do you mean Voice Recognition or were you doing QA???
