In Reply to: What, CEO makes 350,000/year?? - losinglinesMT

to pay him a cool 1 million dollars.  You can check this out at the Medquist website.   I think the CFO makes $350,000 a year, and the head of IT makes $250.000 a year.

P.S.  This does not include the perks, like expense account, car allowance, sign-on bonus, etc.

23K a year - not taxed. Women must walk behind the men, be quiet, and cover their face and head.
They would send me back home in about 2 days or just plain shoot me. I would never make it there.

I checked into it a while back and that was the salary then. It could be more now.

They do set you up with a home and housekeeper free of charge for the length of your stay. I know I would not adjust to their way of life, especially having to walk behind the men and being quiet about everything!
What, CEO makes 350,000/year??
that is almost sickening...and what is worse, we are in this mindset that we are supposed to by happy for them, that they should not have to 'share it' with us, and we should be just happy to have jobs and shut up!

I started to hear that in the hospital setting, about 10 years ago, 'just be lucky to have a job.' I used to think back then, well, why, what if I did not have a job...I would be on social services or unemployment, and certainly the government does not want that?! we are supposed to work, right? Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness and all that, or was that all lies?

I know we are competing globally now for work, but does that mean we have to work for nothing now...so even though we have the capability of perhaps fighting for our jobs, we should just let them go, lie down and give up, because that is progress? well, what is the next thing that will be taken? just lie down and let that happen, too? when is it okay to stand up for yourself?

perhaps service jobs (as what will probably be the only jobs left soon) should start paying $15-20/hour.

things are obviously changing, I understand that, but we need to also have a balance. you can not have rich and poor, because that will only lead to some kind of a revolution. people are already getting frustrated, less money in the pocket, etc.

I see these real estate developments go up all over, and more and more, the old for sale signs pop up after about a year as people move in, probably lose their jobs, and then have to move out.
So he/she makes about $15,000 a year on each MT? (sm)

Or close to $300 per week on each MT?

No wonder I was broke when working for MTSOs.  Glad someone is happy.

I'm someone who makes over 50K a year

How dare I speak to you like what?  Because I had to nerve to suggest you work for an entire 8 hours, oooh, SHAME on me!    Obviously nitpicking my posting style made you feel better.

Nobody suggested a person ONLY take a 5 minute break every hour, all day, every day, but if that's what you obsess on, go ahead!  The point IS - if you concentrate and focus, your production will improve!  And yes, it is possible to eat while you work, I do it every day, so I don't need a lunch break.  I'm motivated because I'm all about the money.  So to answer the "what am I" question - I'm someone who works instead of interacts, and I have the paycheck to prove it. 

Your posts make it obvious what you are, so I won't even ask.

Thanks - Okay, it makes sense that you do get credited if you are under the predicted from last year
is this the person who makes 1 cent a line extra for $6000 a year?
how many lines a day and what do you normally make in a year because to reach an extra $6000 wouldn't you have to be typing way above average which is say 1200 a day for most of us, or 6000 lines a week.

encouraging someone to get their CMT based on $6000 a year extra, perhaps you could give more details because I have never worked for a company who would do that, not unless perhaps you were also a huge producer of lines.

Thank you...
Mine are in year-round thank goodness! They've started their new year 2 months ago.

Not only did I finally receive the proper training, but the woman on the advisory board hired and mentored me. I also joined the local AAMT and networked. Good luck. I know how frustrating it can be. A community college will have a good program to include medical language, MT courses taught by local MTSOs, business English, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, etc.
Our 16 year old son has been working for a year now to pay for his truck.
He's learning how to sand and do body work and how the engine and transmission go together. My parents didn't buy cars for my siblings and I either. I had a 20+ year old beater car until I could afford to move up to a a newer one.

I see all the nice new cars parked in the high school parking lot every day. It's nice that so many disrespectful punk kids get handed something nicer to drive than what all the teachers drive. Oh, well. Honestly, I think most of them borrow Mommy or Daddy's car or are the child of a doctor who can afford to hand them everything.

Hopefully, my kids will take better care of their cars because they bought and built them on their own. You're not going to grow up to be responsible if you don't work hard for something and expect Mommy and Daddy to bail you out all the time.

Oh, my Dad lectured us on even allowing our child to have a vehicle because Dad didn't have one until after he had worked his way through college, lettered on the football team, got straight As, lettered on the baseball team, yadda yadda. He either walked or hitched a ride. Yeah, well, times were different back then, Daddy-O. LOL At least my kid has the opportunity to work and earn his own car.
IC - 30 hours week, $98K last year. So far this year - 28K. sm
Individual IC - own account(s).
Not me, owed last year, and expect to owe this year- sm
or break even, had more expenses this year. Only owed $200 but still don't want to owe at all. Need to start doing estimated tax payments again so I don't owe! Guess I will get off my butt and do that this year.

Got $$$$ back last year but this year

Ask me next year. sm
I quit as an IC telecommunting for a hospital where I was making $35,000 a year, and started for a national as an employee in April. So far, only made $4600 with them. Big OUCH! But just getting the hang of expanders and the 4 accounts I have.

Can't wait to see my end of year :(
less and less every year - sm
Used to be about $35,000, now is about $30,000
Can RAM die? I put in more RAM last year so I should have 768 -- but it says 256 now- sm
anyone have any ideas?  I am positive after I put in the new card back in early 02/2005 it read 756. So if anyone had any insight or suggestions I'd appreciate it.....might explain why my computer has been a bit slow lately...we have also had a lot of power surges/outages lately, but I do have battery back up now (after it wiped my work out 2 x), maybe it got fried from that?  TIA.
About a year now. Don't like it. NM
3 year old
I am very glad you have a happy ending. A friend of mine, who is an MT, had the same thing happen to her with a tragic ending. Her son had drowned in a pond on their property. He was also 3 years old. They just don't realize the danger.

Make sure he removes his make up before he goes to sleep, LOL.
Big S does. For one year.
I am actually thinking of dictating the information into a microcassette and then hiring a typist to type it out for me.

I believe I put it in Autocorrect as -yo and then expended to -year-old and it finally worked.
I kept a log my first year but never again. NM
When you save -year-old in your autotext check the formatted text box NOT the plain text. This should work.
I did it one year...sm
I lived in PA and was losing about $300 a week because of being out of work.  It wasn't really worth it because they only gave me $20 a week to make up for it.  I did it over the internet, so paperwork wasn't a factor, but keeping up with the check-in dates got to be a pain for so little money.  Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like there is much help for us during the slow time.  Unemployement isn't just for the totally unemployed.  If you are losing work due to things beyond your control, that still counts.  Hope this helps!
Well, I did get a cat the next year...
so Dorothy was treated to those three cans of cat food! However, she didn't like 'em.
Maybe next year
she can blind carbon copy everyone and nobody will be the wiser.
Anyone else with an 18-year-old
My son is pulling the "greater than thou" attitude.  I don't know if this is his way of getting me to kick him out of the house or what.  He is to start college next year and we had told him he could stay here to save on rent, but I don't think it is going to work out.  Also, what obligation do we, as parents, have as far as assisting in college payment?
> 1st of the year I think she said. nm
My ten year old said to me the other day, sm
Mom, you look like a Saint.  I said, "a Saint"?  He said, "ya a Saint Bernard" 
So much for the new year being better than the last.

Life could be a lot worse, right?  I know, but I still have no work even at a different job.  I still have no money.  My bills are still behind because my jobs have just snowballed in the past three months.  Home life is the same old, same old.  Can't get the kids to pitch in without complaining.  Still can't get them up in the morning despite moving their bedtimes back.  Can't get the husband to cut back on the budget.  His job has been really slow since Thanksgiving, too.  Christmas was the same old thing.  I wound up returning my Christmas presents again this year.  Nobody gives refunds even with gift receipts so I get to use the gift cards to buy groceries.  I don't know why I thought the new year would be any different.  It's so darn depressing.  What's the point of trying so hard when nothing ever changes?

What year?
$700-$800 F/T, although 3-year-old
is constant interruption. Not her fault, of course. She is going to the sitter's starting next week. I have seen how much of a difference it makes when she is not around.
It's a man's year this year!
They are unstoppable. It's too early to call for me, but my best friend thinks it's going to be Elliott. He is good. Beautiful voice.
I was going to do this last year
but figuared my then 3 year old would just splash my laptop.  It would be nice to have one but I don't think I would get much work done with my son.  He is an only child and wants to be played with a lot of the time
One 3-year-old and trying for my second!!

I have only been doing this for a year..

and I am fully aware of all of the above, except the (GERD). Like the others said though, that is just probably how the account wants it done. My account wants the 2 spaces after each period though, so that is how I do it.

I personally would not worry about what other people are doing. If they are not doing their jobs right, that will be their problem. By correcting the above though, you only benefit yourself.

I would suggest entering some of those in your expander. I have bid put in to expand out to b.i.d. The same goes for q4h, expands out to q.4 h. Once you enter all those in, you won't have to worry about doing it wrong anymore. It will correct them for you. It doesn't get any easier than that. Good luck!

Why don't you come on over and see for yourself. I have a 2 and 4 year old
boys who are the most well-behaved children you've probably ever met. Yes ma'am, no sir, etc.

This one will really get your panties all in a bunch! I actually started pre-k at home with my 4 year old AND transcribing. How's that one for a kicker?

I plan on homeschooling both of my children.

They are very well adjusted. I worked a split shift and do most of my typing at night when they go to bed.

By the way, I used to be in daycare. That was my first career. I wouldn't be so quick to think that those kids are getting any more attention than they are at home. Trust me, most centers have a ratio of 10:1 and even more! I can promise you this: It's natural for a child to be with their mothers and not strangers from infancy all the way through adolescence. They WANT to be home with their mommy's and in some cases daddy's too, even if their mom's are working while they are home. It's a great sense of security that our precious children have knowing that their parents are not going to leave them all day with some stranger. How do I know this? Because I worked at a center before becoming an MT. Those kids would cry, some infants would cry all day long. Doesn't that tear at your heartstrings?

Please don't feel sorry for the children who are home with their moms or dads while they work from home regardless of what they do. I have met more well-adjusted children whose parents work from home than from working parents who choose to work out of the home, which I don't condemn. I just preferred to be the primary caretaker in my children's lives.
She is a four year old. That's all.
Her *lack of concentration* is most likely associated with family upheaval than ADHD or anything else. Weak hands? What does that mean exactly?

Take a hug and then give one to your daughter - she is going to be fine. I guess if she needs to be in preschool (which is another subject altogether - I'm a keep them at home until school actually starts kind of person) find a teacher with a little more time to spend on the child's individuality instead of one who tries to cram all the square pegs into round holes.
No. I have SBC DSL. This is my 2nd year to
that is all I pay, period.

Last year PT, this year FT
Last year, I worked on average 5 hours a day, brought in about $60K. This year, I am trying to work more FT hoping for $85k (I am VERY fortunate, I have wonderful accounts)
not this year but...
A past MTSO that i worked for sent a very thoughtful gift, homemade, not expensive, but one of the most thoughtful and useful i have received.  She made a full sheet of address labels with my address on them but with a logo of a computer typing on itself.  Very cute and appreciated. 
44K last year
That is absolutely wonderful. With or without bonuses, you are obviously an excellent MT.
Ever think about applying somewhere else to make the same 44K w/o working so many hours. As we all work hard, I'm sure you would not have a problem at all finding an employer out there who would be willing to pay you for that hard work in 40 hours per week instead of 60-70. I feel for you. Been there, done that as an MT/QA.
no, that would be in the year......NM

If I did it with my 3-year-old, you can do it.
It's not easy at times. Thank goodness they will both be in school this year. It can be done though. At least with a newborn, they sleep a lot at first. Also, maybe it would help if you put a crib or bassinet in the room where you work. Just work as much as you can while the baby is sleeping and take your breaks when he wakes up.

Congrats and good luck to you!
30-year-old MT here...
$16,800 a year more ...

that is sooo significant. I agree that happiness is as well, and peace-of-mind! Another thing - my current job I can work from home in bed weather, or if the need arises.  The new job already said that's not an option. 

I think I should take the new job - keep my private docs - work myself into the ground - and retire early!   :-)   But seriously - I need to make a decision within the next week.
