Obviously Indian-based, but they want to train you to be an MT..check this part out..

Transcription is fun for the right person as it allows you to write and if you love to write, then it is an enjoyable career. Some people who do not like writing because they are not creative still enjoy this medical online profession. Even people who hate writing like this profession because it allows for working at home on a flexible schedule.

OKAY.. what planet are they from..Since when is transcription fun LOL...and I'm sure glad it lets me write whatever I want, because I just love to write..LOL and I get to use my creative ability also to write whatever I like. People who hate MT-ing just do because they hate to write and are not creative LOL. I'm sorry but this just cracked me up. I've thought a lot of things about transcription but FUN was never one of them. Lucky for me though, even though I don't like it, I get to stay at home and have a really flexible schedule..NOT.. lol...

Not bitter one bit. (sm)

Just showing the other side of it. I'm trying to point out an employer can expect a few oddball resumes from people grossly underqualified and even those new to the whole process of presenting oneself in resume-style dossier. In the same way, potential applicants can find that the drummed-up company names and profiles for a job posting at any website, in any newspaper, anywhere can be nothing but an e-mail dress and/or fax number of someone trying to subcontract work they are subcontracting from someone else...or worse.

What is unacceptable is when companies tout themselves as major players in the medical transcription field, or demand certain professional standards from their applicants, but cannot get their act together to perform professional, honest and effective interview/testing/hiring sessions. It just helps MTs to identify the people who lack respect for their time and efforts as an applicant, as those MTs can expect the same after being hired.

Yep. And it is a bitter cup.
Because they are bitter that they can't. lol
You certainly are one bitter woman. If you would have read what I said - I DID say I was making 4 cents less a line than I was making 20 years ago. I don't think you can read.
Thank you. I think this is just a bitter person
trying to cause more bitterness. I feel sorry for them.

Actually I did go to college and I'm not bitter at all....sm
Just realistic, as I said. Obviously you've not found the right company - there are out there, believe me. But the previous poster did say it correctly - if you were working in an office with your degree, you couldn't just jump up and run. An MTSO or company has a business to run, too. I schedule my appointments after my working hours - pretty simple it seems to me.
ER work seeker
I am seeking IC status also typing ERs.

Seems like since I've switched to DQS, production has gone down. Not able to use normals like before on Word... it's frustrating.

They must, just saw an ad on the job seeker board for it, but
its too bad they don't offer their current employees an opportunity to learn it, or at least announce the job internally if someone is interested.  This is the WORST company for any kind of promotion and absolutely no communication with its employees.  Once you are put on a platform or on an account you will die there cuz they won't let you move.  Team leaders suck, too. 
Job Seeker's Board.....
Radiologist Transcriptionist Needed.  Thanks. 
They have an ad on the Job Seeker's Board here. sm

just look to the left of your screen towards the top and click on "job seeker's board".  Scroll down and you will see an ad for WMX ER work.  Good company, good bennies, good people, been with them 5 years. 

Ignore the grumpies.  I don't like the search function here either.  To get more current stuff you can click on the "related" link in blue on each message or go to the top of the last few current pages of the Main board or the Company board.  Do Ctrl + F to bring up the search box .  Good luck.

Job seeker says "premium" pay for ESL - that's
There are some on the Job seeker's board sm
but many are old and quite a few are base in India
If you look under job seeker's on the left
lots of posts.  Don't know why you need a job bank AND those posts. 
There are some on the job seeker board.
I just went up from MT to QA about 3 yrs ago.

Keystrokes has an ad on the job seeker's
board.  It pays 8 cpl.  You should check it out.  I'm not sure if they do voice recognition, but if you can avoid those companies that do, you'll make better wages on straight transcription.  Just send your resume to some of the companies that are advertising and see what pans out.  Decide a rate for yourself and don't accept anything lower than that.  Decide if you want employee status or IC/statutory. 
well, now I know why you are a bitter, name-calling person.
nuff said
When I began 15 yrs ago, people were bitter. I
I have posted on this subject, bitter?
Oh, no, I could take now but I am 1 year short of full and it would be crazy to have Uncle Sam taking my money any more than he does know. I got the information up front- I know how much I will be getting when I do take my money, I know how much I get on a retirement account. Not bitter, just smart not to retire before I want to!
Why so bitter?? Does the truth hurt? nm
That is the red note on the job seeker's board.
Did anyone see the posting on the job seeker's board with
the ortho emphysis? 
Sheri...does that mean that the job seeker's board will have sm...
companies posting jobs that off-shore transcription?  I am trying to find an office that does not off shore due to the difficulty of the reports left over for the US MT, so I need to be careful if that is the case.  Thank you!
should have read except on job seeker board
except solicitations on Job Seeker boards here for MT/coding etc. 
so true, but she could post on Job Seeker's
Board for a job not yet really available like some MTSOs do, and then give you the runaround when nothing is available. It's happened to me a couple times, now I'm suspicious about that.
Job seeker's board question please

What happened to all the jobs in the "job bank"?  There's only one in there. 

Also if you open the adds up and click on "for information" it goes to the info for that one companythat has the add, not even the right company. 

Is this normal pay? On Job Seeker's board (sm)
They are looking for an Ortho QA Editor and after training they are paying $11.50 an hour? $11.50 an hour?  $11.50 an hour?  Why not just work in fast food?
5000 lines per day on job seeker's ...
You gotta be kidding, some say it was on before and required more than one person but why submit it as if it were a "job" offered to one? Perhaps I am "slow."
jobs on seeker board

I am wondering, are most of the jobs at http://forum.mtstars.com/seeker/ for at-home positions? As opposed to working on site?


What are you? A bitter old school marm? Hahaha
All your "PAY ATTENTION" posts. Hahaha

geez you guys are bitter. Maybe she's trying to lighten

Maybe she just has a fun personality?

And with this awful bitter cold weather
going ballistic on the drivers when they do return!
Why does it seem that all divorced women are so bitter? It is not ALL men that are rats. You just
found one that was.
I'm not bitter. I've been remarried to a wonderful for 13-1/2 yrs.
Your tone sounds 100% whining and bitter.
That's why I call your posts whining and bitter! The other poster stated her case in a mature way, using stats as her back up. No whining, no bitterness. I have not formed an opinion on the AAMT either way to date, but am leaning more pro-AAMT by just the style of postings - those supporting it come off as calm, professional, and mature, while those not supporting it sound emotional, bitter, and whining. Just my opine and reaction to the posts!! Debate much? Its a great skill, and long lost in America...
You're sounding bitter about your cubicle.
Be happy for her, be envious of her (I know I am), but bitter is unbecoming a professional.
The job seeker's board has a lot of local jobs
advertised all over the country. I don't see her making that kind of money as a home-based MT, but she would not have travel expenses, etc. Good luck.
I believe they are posted on "Job Seeker's Board"
CHS Acct Mgr posting on job seeker's board
I have a sneaking suspicion that this is Ascend.  If anyone finds out what company this is, please let us know!
you sound just as bitter and defensive, so we're square. nm
who really cares? personable, angry, bitter, just do your work.
I don't really know the purpose of a supervisor so I guess I don't really care what their tone is. I have been through MANY supervisors. I don't really care about their tone. I do my work no matter what they say or do.
You sound like a bitter, jealous, uneducated female.
Sorry, but I've been married to a blue collar man who beat the living crap out of me and destroyed my life in every way he possibly could. Turned my own mother against me, took my kids, laughed when I got cancer.

I am now married to a lawyer who treats me like a queen. It's wonderful to live a stress-free, hate-free existance and my kids and my mom have finally come around so I'm looking forward to a wonderful holiday for the first time in 6 years.

However, I would never say that ALL blue collar men are abusive, drunk, lazy slobs like my ex-husband is. That's generalizing and that's not fair, and certainly not correct.

I also wouldn't say that all corporate executives are perfect men either. That is also generalizing.

You don't sound like a prize yourself with your judgmental nature, dear. Time to take a step back and do some self-evaluation and perhaps get some therapy.
Bitter? I think the recruiter/owner had some valid points. nm
Explaining my occasional bitter-/crankiness
I confess, I am one of those that will occasionally toss a snide comment in. I don't think I have ever gotten to the point of being brutally mean, but I have been snippy. And it may be petty and it may be unnecessary, but, in my case anyway, it stems from a frustration when obvious newbs post a question that at least in my mind seems simplistic (based on the s/l they are able to provide) and should either be a common knowledge type thing or else easily findable. After a day of plodding through ESLs, rapid-fire dictators, or reports that have more chromosome testing than I have chromosomes, I do get a little cranky when someone who probably only makes $50 less a week than I do posts on here asking what 'conjecture hard fail your' might be and respond in a somewhat less than mature way.
Search the Job Seeker's and Company boards. Also mtjobs.com...nm
There's a link to post resumes on the Job Seeker's board. nm
I agree, you need to a lot of research. I would start with the job seeker's board and see who S

is advertising and research the companies that seem to have the best to offer and find out if they truly are the ones with the best to offer.  In this business, there are a lot more considerations when looking for a job than just cents per line.

Good Luck!

You sure sound like an "angry, hateful, bitter old bigot" in posts above!!

Geez, you're really getting close to the line of sounding bitter.
May I suggest some counseling? The OP asked an innocent question and you took it like a personal attack against you.

I've been a single parent and mind you I know how hard it is to be in that situation, but if someone asks a simple question like "what does your spouse do" most people who don't have a SO at the moment would have moved on to another thread and never given it a second thought.

Seriously, time to do some self-searching.
