It is, but doing a Monster/CareerBuilder search shows that inhouse jobs
Several jobs on Monster & CareerBuilder for inhouse office jobs down there through an
Incredibly it is. Check other jobs on mtjobs.com. A few are in the 9-10 cpl range. nm
yes, those jobs are out there, but you really need to search for them.
Takes a lot of time and energy to find, but they are around.
I don't know how it made such a small diff in your invoice... made a $100 diff in mine! (sm)

If it were only adding up to three bucks, I wouldn't sweat it. $100? Yeah, that's baseball registration for my son for this year. I am not giving tabs, returns, etc. away free when it adds up to that much difference!  Why should I charge less for a Return than I would for a"K"?



Search on the Companies or New Student board for course info. Jobs are available all over the US and
It isn't about showing MTs the money, it's about showing
I would try Careerbuilder.com or Monster.com. nm
Now that Monster.com has been hacked and

confidential and personal data compromised, I am not confortable posting my resume anywhere, but really am seriously looking for a job with a decent company.  I have years of experience in transcription, management, and other areas, but right now my hands are aching because of transcription and I need to move on.   And I would just like to work for a company where someone says thank you once in a while and if you do extra projects.. 



They don't have the pay posted with the job? Chk Monster or the
Pay for Diff Accounts

It seems to me that the pay per line should vary according to the difficulty of the account.

Everyone agrees that the line count can be totally different from one account to the other, so why doesn't the pay vary?  That would be the fair way to do it.

Does anyone know of a company who does that?

Diff between IC & subcontractor
What is the diff between these two?  And do most of you have set hours that work as a subcontractor or do you pretty much have flexible hours?  Thanks!
According to the Answers.com section of Monster.com
"Dr. Phil McGraw won a football scholarship and played as a linebacker for the University of Tulsa, but when he was injured he quit and transferred to Midwestern State University. He graduated with a B.A. in psychology in 1975, and went on to get his PhD. from the University of North Texas in 1979. He is also a pilot, with a multi-engine rating."

. . . . and what are your educational credentials, my dear?
Only 1 cup, but I'm addicted to monster drinks. nm
YES, MQ pays shift diff but you have to ask for it. SM
I complained bitterly about it and they gave me half a cent per line for nights and weekends. Adds up to about $75 per check and YES, it is paid on my bimonthly check.
I get Monster drink from the corner store...

These really work for me--ingredients below

Carbonated water, sucrose, glucose, citric acid, taurine, natural flavors, sodium citrate, l-carnitine, panax ginseng root extract, ascorbic acid, caffeine, sodium chloride, niacinamide, riboflavin, guarana seed extract, inositol, glucuronalactone, pyridoxine hydrochloride, cyanobalmin.

I'd give this monster back to her mother
Bad seed. They might be able to keep this evil beast at bay for awhile but sooner or later she's going to cause a disaster of some type if she hasn't already.

saw it on monster-- "a too good to be true" job description-
for info and see what kind of a response I get. Don't want to send my resume unless it seems legit. I have 2 jobs now, just fishing for something better.
Why Employees Move On (Monster) link below

Beow is a page on Monster.com which may interest you. Its called Job Satisfaction Survey, and reveals Why Employees Move On. You can find it at http://career-advice.monster.com/career-change/job-satisfaction-survey/Home.aspx (click on this link, or copy and paste it into your web browser).

This should be good for a discussion or two...

Just DONT start a Monster account!
I did, and first of all, nothing that even vaguely resembles what I wanted to find ever comes up. Instead, my inbox is swamped with emails from them about jobs for software engineering, nursing, receptionist, etc. keep coming in, even though I was very precise about ONLY wanting to see MT & legal transcription jobs.

Tons of spyware, too. The ads for Viagra, Rolex watches and porn tripled after I joined Monster.

So finally I got bored with them and wanted to UN-subscribe. There is NO PLACE on their website where you can do that. All you can do is make your account inactive. (Though they CLAIM if you call a phone number and give them lots of person information [yeah, RIGHT! In their DREAMS!], they will unsubscribe you.)

So I finally put their website on my SPAM list, and hopefully that'll stop their emails.

DON'T put all your information on this company's website! Heaven only knows who they're giving it to.
Diff between 1200 lines/day with MQ vs Spheris:
If you type 1200 lines a day for 5 days of the week with each company, here is the incentive difference:

MQ: Incentive would be $0.
S: Incentive would be $24.

That is for the entire week.
Ok - There's a diff between DREAM job and REALISTIC GREAT job!
Do want that? Seriously.

I have worked for companied in a diff. state - sm
than I live in. I have not have to pay the other states tax. You just have to pay the tax for the state you live in and of course Federal tax and SE tax as well. I have my DH take extra out of his paycheck to cover my SE taxes. Last year owed about 15% of my net after write offs. But the rule of thumb is to reserve about 30% of your gross to cover state and federal, and SE taxes; and if you think you are going to owe pay quarterly to avoid any penalties. I have not "owed" to date as my husband as enough dededucted, but when I think that may change I will start making payments quartly.
What diff. do ? make? Answers will be based
I have,however Ms. Jester comes in under a diff. email addy to
to post.  Everytime she comes on to post, I ban her.  What is unprofessional about posting the truth about a company owner who is not doing the right thing by paying unpaid wages? I'll go ahead and answer.  Nothing.
I was banned from other board for posting diff.
you're right, it's federal but diff for each state...see link...sm


ALL STATES PAY MINIMUM WAGE DIFFERENTLY - i.e., Arizona says *No state minimum wage law.*

What diff does it make if it is one during the day or at night? Your computer should be protected
Two diff topics. OT laws state 40 hours in most states req'd
What about your local hospitals, Manpower, employment agency, Monster, CareerBuilder, etc. nm
My son loves Monster drinks before football/basketball practice. I think they are nasty.
I don't drink coffee, but I have to have my Coca Cola first thing in the morning and one more halfway through day.  So I guess I am a little dependent on caffeine!
She also has an ad on Career Builders that's signed "Kimberly" out of Arizona, totally diff
Pay range here is $13 to $19 ...
depending on experience, with a 1200 minimum per day line count. Lines exceeding 12,000 per 2-week pay period are paid as an incentive bonus at a rate of 5 cents per line. VERY strict QA department, so quality does not suffer. Seasoned transcriptionists easily exceed 20,000 lines (therefore make an additional $400 for the extra 8000 lines).  Combined with the benefits and being allowed to work on-site or at home, it's hard to beat hospital employment in my area.
Unfortunately showing my age here, but
Yul Brynner was always the greatest to me!!  Just wish he was still alive!!!  What a sexy man!!!!!
showing my age
I was only 7 when it came out (just checked), so it's just now becoming a classic for me (he, he, he).
And I'm really glad it wasn't meant to be mean.
Dollar range and thanks.. sm

Trying to stay around not more than 275,000.  Would like 3 bedrooms, and 2 to 2.5 baths with an office or fourth bedroom for work.  A pool would be nice.  When we were there about three weeks ago all the new tracts were on lotteries or about a one year wait to build.  Don't really wanna hassle with the lottery since I don't live local.  How about Palm Valley?  Is that a nice place?  What would you say is the community with the best schools.  My priority is location, schools, price, community amenities, not too far from everything so hubby does not have a monstrous commute, etc. 

Thanks so much for answering, it is really nice to get opinions from people who actually live there.


I do all ER work and am in that LPH range. nm
That is a fair range...sm
I make a bit more but cover everything, not just any one thing. Hourly is the way to go to keep anyone as there is a LOT of time involved in trainng MTs, time to write feedback, etc., which I would guess you know assuming you have been doing it yourself up until now.

I have worked line rates in the past. Anything less than 0.06 you cannot make a living on unless you work 15-20 hours a day as the accounts would ALL have to have perfect dictators and your MTs seasoned on the well side to make a reasonable living in the MW.
I have looked around and the range for pay is
.60-.75 and the range to charge if you own customer is .80-.95. Sad but true :(
She has a really narrow range. sm
She also sings off key a lot.  Paula has been hard on her for a reason. She shouldn't be where she is.  She's very attractive and I think that has gotten her a lot of votes like a lot of the very little talent out there like jessica simpson and brittney spears, getting by on looks and not talent.  If she beats Taylor, then I will lose all respect for this show.
Salary range

The 2-year assistant degree salary starts at around $30,000 here (the same as a beginning teacher).  The PT master's degree starts at around $60,000 per year here; other areas of the country, of course, are likely to vary.   I already have a bachelor's degree; I'm going for the master's, but I don't know how long the waiting list is.  

Not sure, but they are costly; in the 300 to 400 range. If I
.werewere going to make that purchase, it certainly wouldn't be for use with transcription, but rather listening to ROCK-N-ROLL!
Do you mind if I ask what their pay range is?
Just a general range, not specific.  I don't care if a company is located on Mars either if their pay rate is good and they always pay on time.

I think you would be very ambitious and over-reaching if you charged 15 cents a line to think that you were competing with the nationals.  It sounds like she is new to transcription and has no way to gauge what she should charge.  If she is by herself, she is not going to be able to handle a clinic account or a hospital account by herself.  They will give her over 5000 lines a day.  She needs to be realistic on what she can handle before she thinks about what she can charge them.

Any idea the pay range?
you are showing your IGNORANCE
Apparently that is all you have gained from 'getting out, living and learning'.

Knowledge of God is the beginning of wisdom.

I hope you truly 'get smart' by the time you have to give an account for all you have done and not done to the One that made you.
What? How in the world can you say that? I AM showing
compassion. Yes, I'm a mother. I can't pat her on the back and try to settle her. She seemed upset. I was trying to soothe her irritation, literally.

I think you have taken me wrong. I'm very tender with my babies and I thought I was coming across that way to the post above as well.

Gee, I'm sorry if she took that wrong.
I think I did not speak clearly about the just showing up MTs

If a company hires only ICs, then they cannot expect them to work except for the times they want. 

Typing less than 100 lines a day is not pocketchange because of the pay. 

I don't want to worry about the IRS showing

up on my doorstep, so I have my taxes done by H&R Block.  No guarantee that you still won't have problems with IRS, but it makes me feel better.  I don't claim my house/utilities.  I don't claim nickel and dime stuff either. 

When my mother died exactly a week later I get a letter from the IRS stating she owed $25,000.00 - no explanation.  I was freaking, not only was I grieving but having to worry about this.  I wrote a very nice letter, sent them a copy of her death certificate, and said I thought the issue was a roll-over of an IRA.   My mom didn't have much money and I knew that she had rolled over one so I was just guessing.   They sent me a letter a couple of weeks later saying the situation had been resolved and no monies due.  I  don't know what the problem was, but 5 years later I still have that letter.


Absolutely! They are showing this whole
last season all summer long. Every Tuesday night...two episodes back to back.
Your young age is showing!
I remember the dictabelt, we had to mark it with chalk to know where to start it up. Talk about archaic! The times they are a'changin! (and for this part - the better!)
