Serving Over 20,000 US Medical Transcriptionists

I sure enjoyed the old days.

In Reply to: There were in-house parties, donuts, 40 work week. - Benefit/Good wages (NM)

I started out 28 years ago transcribing for a transcription service, so have always been paid on a production basis. But we sure had fun in the office and we were appreciated for our hard work. Raises were annual. Benefits were as good as those offered by the hospitals. Christmas gifts were nice. The owners would come to town a few times a year and would actually speak to us and express appreciation for what we were doing. I worked with the best group of ladies. Sure do miss those days.

30 hours divided by four days equals seven-hour days. Most of us have to work pretty much every day
Working 6/hour days, 5 days/week I make
$42,000.00, but the work is there to make more if I want to.  I'm in the southeast. 
YES, we have really enjoyed it too..
all of what you said, getting xtra time, not running around...schoool...extras but just seems liek today, they have had enough of being at home and they are ready to go back to schoool...
Just saw and enjoyed....

Rumor Has It with Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Costner.  Some of the reviews on Netflix complained that it was predictable, but I didn't think it was.  I thought it was good.

Watched Elizabethtown awhile ago and ended up scratching my head.  I told my sister I had rented it and she said, "Did you get it? I didn't get it."  Nope, didn't get it. Orlando Bloom is very easy on the eyes, but after you've said that...



I enjoyed seeing her, to each their own
but a lot of times when people are desperate, they will contact any and everyone they think could possibly assist them. I do not know the story of where she intervened on the Hornbeck family. I did not go to her meeting for any "guidance," far from it, I went just to hear her speak and she was really interesting. I have also seen that Edwards fellow, saw him in Vegas but he spent most of the time giving about 4 people out of the audience "readings." I did not care for him particularly. People like the family you spoke of will grasp at straws trying to find out information. Happens all the time. People with cancer will try measures off the chart in order to possibly find a cure for themselves, just happens. I take things like Sylvia with a grain of salt. I did like her message about toxic people. I firmly believe that.
2000 low days, 4000 busy days
Did 43,000 lines last month.   6 doctors. 
You can "make a living" if you work 16-hr days, 7 days
and if you rarely buy anything but food and the barest essentials in clothing. My balancing act is so precarious that all it'll take is one of life's little disasters (rent increase, sick pet, major car repair) to pull the rug out from under me. Not a good feeling at all.
Glad you enjoyed it :)

A friend told me about it a few years ago...it helped me through some pretty trying times, & I still go there when I need a "shot in the arm", so to speak. 

Have a great day

Glad you enjoyed them! sm
I've gotten a lot of feedback from those songs over the years. I actually performed some of them at the AAMT convention last year in Hawaii, they had a talent show and I won second place! It was a lot of fun, and the MTs in the audience certainly seemed to be able to relate!

Glad you enjoyed them! :o> (nm)
But, you enjoyed doing coding? Did you
find it more stressful than MT? Thanks for answering.
I imagine he enjoyed that
after the Cialis
Yeah, it was great. I really enjoyed sm

seeing it.  She was so guarded and on edge.  But she rarely does interviews or things where she doesn't have absolute control, so probably that factored in.  She was definitely waiting for him to make fun of her, but I think he knows better now.

I loved when she expressed that now she does exactly what she wants to do.  It is hard to fault her for the things she does with her time, and a huge portion of her money.  Good woman.

Definitely enjoyed the "guys" last night sm
a lot more than the girls the night before!  Chris rocked and so did Taylor.  As for the girls... I really like Kelly, Paris and Katherine... that is going to be a hard choice.. Also Mandisa... However, I think this may be the year for the guys - Chris is going to be hard to beat!
Your kitty is a beauty! Enjoyed your

blog.  Like the others, it made me appreciate what I have so much.  Your "little corner of the world" where you work looks so much like mine.  I, too, have my bird feeders and bird bath to look out at.  I also have two kitties who are my "co-workers".  Tip (angel in Thai), my ?-percent Siamese kitty is sleeping right next to my keyboard right now.  Taz (yes, a little black and white devil) stepped away for a while.  Sometimes I get so mad and hate transcription, but we really have to count our blessings.  Working in the comfort and safety of our home with our animal pals and family close by is worth its weight in gold!!! Thanks for bringing a smile to my face, MTBlab. 

Glad to see you enjoyed the recipe...
Hope it turned out good for you too...
I thought it was just awful. But I'm glad you enjoyed it :).
550-650 lph on average. Some days more, some days less. It all depends. nm
How? By working 12-hr days 7 days/week?
So you enjoyed the candy? LOL! My daughter completed college at FIU and
Guess I'm a killjoy 2. Just never really enjoyed dressing up in costume.

In SEVEN days?

$30 in 7 days?  You've got to be kidding, right?  I could see $30 in 7 hours being bad, but in 7 days?  Either way, it's still not even minimum wage.  Aren't you worth at least twice minimum wage per hour?  Granted, there is always a period of adjustment when starting a new account, but I won't even stick around that long if I can't even make minimum wage.  Wow.  That's all I can say.  I think you know in your heart what you need to do.  You are worth so much more.

I've been frustrated myself because I'm supposed to do so many lines per week.  Monday and Tuesday were no work because the weekend people did it all.  Wednesday was technical problems.  Now I'm scrambling to get my lines in by the end of business today to reach my weekly line quota and get a half decent paycheck.  I was basically on call for them for free for three days.

There's not much of interest to me on the Job Seeker's board either.  Heck, maybe I'll take the next month off work and fool around for the rest of the summer until I can find something else.  I should have backed up paychecks coming in to last until then.  Good luck with your dilemma.

yes, just last few days.
Thought it was my computer - it acts like it can't keep up w/the typing and I'm not THAT fast...;) Now that I know it isn't just me though, I think I'll give them a call tomorrow if it happens again.
I think my MT days are over.....sm

I took a Federal job last year and kept one small, very part-time MT account. I got a 2-step promotion yesterday (lots more money), so I'm going to drop the MT account. This will be my first experience as a supervisor/work group leader. I'll probably still check in here, I actually use a lot of the grammar and software info. I loved MT, but the benefits and job security were a good move for me and my family. Best of luck to all.

Most days I truly like my job very much; however,
today is not one of those days. After listening to dictators on speaker phones, chewing gum, and ESL's, today I don't like my job a whole bunch. Tomorrow will probably be different, though.
I had one of those days too.
Very draining. Hope it gets better for you.
It will still be there in 2 days
when I go on to work. They let it happen constantly. They are just glad someone is dumb enough to do the idiots the cherrypickers skip continuously. The funny part is one does get used to them although they still SUCK.
Unfortunately, I had it for four days...nm
I think I will try it a few more days.....
If I just can get it, then I will try another ergonomic style..
I think after two days..
I am getting the hang of it. I still hit a few keys wrong here and there, but I think I will end up loving it too! I have noticed that my hands dont ache at the end of the day and thats a +++!!
Does anybody else ever have days that you just
absolutely depise transcription? Usually I enjoy my job, but today McDonald's, Hardee's, Pizza Hut, cleaning toilets, etc. is looking better.
