Posted By: with Oprah? on 2005-09-20
In Reply to:

Come on, where were the tears, hysteria and complete breakdown?  I was on the edge of my seat, never watch Oprah anyways, and it was sooo disappointing.  Not one mention of Bradangelina, it was all about okay lets heal now.  Rip off.

Jennifer Aniston finally speaks out

She says she's hurt and sad over the breakup.  She loves Brad and always will because he's a "good" man.  She's very hurt about his spread in Vanity Fair with Angelina as a "married couple" with children.  She says it was obvious from the beginning of filming Mr and Mrs Smith that he was attracted to Angelina and started drifting away from her.  Now look at him, he's chasing after Angelina like a fool, while she adopts baby after baby, when he had a perfectly good woman!  The whole thing is sad!

16-yo son has job interview at K-Mart - interview attire help(sm)

My 16-year-old son has his first job interview at K-Mart.  He has basically applied for any position they will give him.  I'm insisting that he he wear a nice pair of Dickies and a polo shirt (which I will have to go buy but this is not a problem as I expect to do this).  However, My DH is insisting that it's ok for him to go in the nice pair of shorts (not Dickies but more along the lines of baggy shorts that the teenagers are wearing these days) and a t-shirt.  Am I in the wrong here?  I've seen the way these kids dress after they get the job (although I'm not sure if they wear t-shirts and shorts).  Am I being old fashioned in assuming that you dress decent for a job interview (although if he was applying for a welding position at the local shipyard I don't know if I'd make him dress up).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  TIA

Oh bullshit, that is such a lame excuse. The same lame excuse that has been
time someone doesn't agree with offshoring.  Of course I have bills that need to be paid...EVERYONE DOES!  And, guess what sweet cheeks, I have a job and it's with a company that doesn't offshore!  Wah...wah...wah all you want, but this site does not support offshoring private health information and if you don't like it, run somewhere else because there are a lot of us here that DON'T agree with you!
Jennifer won!!
Jennifer, try this (sm)
As you type your report, leave a blank every time you cannot understand what he said. At this point, don't spend a lot of time trying to figure it out. When dictation is finished, go back to beginning. Listen to each blank again. You'll figure out quite a few blanks this time. Go back and relisten one more time to each blank. You'll be amazed at how many you have filled in with this method. Copy the report into your expander. When he dictates a similar report, expand this out and listen through it changing whatever needs to be changed. After a few times, you will have a complete report in your Expander to use as a template for future dictation.
what a good idea.
Jennifer won HOH after striking
a deal with Kaysar at a 15-hour standoff!
Jennifer? What? She is for the other team isn't she?
What was Kaysar thinking?
Very Lame
I agree totally, all I can guess is they spent their weekend together having fun and Oprah decided she couldn't ask her any pertinent questions to put her friend on the spot, what a let down. But then I guess it really is none of our business.
The reason he dumped Jennifer

was that he got tired of being prettier than his wife.  HAHA  - I'll take a real man anyday, like James Gandolfini, maybe.

Jennifer, recognized your name from MT Monthly
I enjoyed the publication and have referred several MTs your way for ROS through the years. Hope all is well with you.
that is so incredibly LAME!
but the difference is that i happen to keep a better attitude, and if it goes south, i start looking for better pastures.
This probably sounds really lame because I'm relatively new here

But it seems like anyone can send you an email if they click on your name.  I don't know if the administrators screen the outgoing emails from here or not, but it would make sense that if a person clicked on your name they could send you an email regarding Spheris.

Not lame. It's a fun show. nm
nobody's stewing - HE'S A LAME DUCK..sm

Nobody is stewing - everyone is CRACKING UP LAUGHING AT THIS Lame Duck President.  If you don't know what being a Lame Duck president means, go Google it. 

Bush=Lame Duck President 2006




Sounds lame and illegal
Right. 100% QA means the QA staff needs some auditing, not just the MTs. I assume by your screen name you are an MT in Nevada. I just went to the home page of the Nevada Labor Commissioner's Office and read this:

Q. How often must I be paid?

A. Wages must be paid at least semi-monthly.

Q. What can be deducted from my wages?

A. An employer may not withhold, deduct, or divert any part of an employee's pay other than benefits and those items required by federal and state law, unless the employee specifically authorizes the deduction in writing.

Sounds superficially like your job can't withhold pay from you...but if they are not in NV they may be able to under other state's lays. Check the state's Labor site and make a BIG stink with your managers. Ask them if THEY are getting paid. Good luck.
LAME Yuck... where's a GOOD come back?
Talk to me when you have a real comeback cheeseball!!!!!   I'm way past the sticks and stones phase of life!!!!!  HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAA LAMO LAMO Looohoooser!!!!
This sounds lame, but I take my dog on a walk (he has been going on many walks lately). SM
I also daydream about finding a job better suited to me, and the angrier I get the more action I take. In the process now.
Sorry, not falling for your lame attempt at a playground brawl.
Your life sounds quite gratifying (not)!

What a lame excuse. Move forward on your lawsuit, cuz you're not gettin paid.
Big Brother fans. Looks like Jennifer double crossed Kaysar. Sorry but Kaysar is dumb as a rock
Maybe he should be voted out AGAIN!  Stupid is as stupid does.   Bye-bye Kaysar. 
The interview with Amphion is nothing to be worried about.  They basically just ask you your past experience as a Transcriptionist and what areas you feel are your strengths/weaknesses.  It was not a difficult interview at all.  They're very nice people.  Good luck on the interview! 
I would be more than happy to participate also.
I have an interview with a company and I just realized... I have no idea what to expect. I wasn't really interviewed when I got my last transcription job, I was basically thrown into it to see how I did and I happened to do well. Is there anything that makes an MT interview different from an interview with, say, a retail company?
I only have one piece of advice for you. Over the last 25 years (until I got smart) I have worked in doctor's offices. I say, don't do it. You will automatically become their secretary, office assistant, receptionist, insurance clert, medical assistant... you get my drift. Go to another transcription company and ask for more than 8-9 cents per line. Trust me on this.
Interview With Prosecutor
The prosecutor from Aruba was interviewed last week and she said they can still go ahead with charging the boy with murder even without a body.  She said it would be harder to make the case but they have some evidence which, by law, they cannot disclose.

Transcend Interview
I tested yesterday online with Transcend.  Got an e-mail today stating they would like an interview so I called and scheduled one.  Not sure yet about quitting MQ but am very nervous about their new plans as I am a SE.  Anyone been interviewed via phone by Transcend and what can I expect?  Heart is pounding so nervous.
Interview today sm

I also have an interview today with Transcend and wondering what to expect. Hopefully, I'll be leaving Medquist soon, too.

job interview tomorrow ... what do you think?

Hi all ... I'm going to a local hospital tomorrow for an interview.  The job is in the laboratory.  It's a f/t position where half the day you do pathology transcription and the other half secretarial work.  It's mon-fri, 9-5. 

This is in New York (the suburbs) actually, about 1/2 hour north of NYC.  I have 13  years of medical records transcription experience, and prior to that for 5+ years worked as a secretary to a medical director.

How much of a salary should I expect ?   Thanks! 


At the end of the interview, the decision
was up to Mr. Trump, not Randall. In the business world, you protect your own position and interest, and he showed Mr. Trump that he was indeed tough enough to do that. This is not "Survivor," taking someone to the final two.

As far as Rebecca goes, she is indeed a very impressive 23-year-old. Her exposure from the show will take her far, perhaps farther than the Trump organization. However, she is still quite young. The right candidate was selected for this position.
what an MT test I took on an interview !

I went for a job interview at NYC's largest hospital yesterday.  The job was for an Admin Assist position, with a lot of transcription skills as well.  For the transcription part of the exam, "all the equipment is in use right now" they told me, and they decided to give me a LIVE test:

They got one of the anesthesiologists on staff to find a chart and pull up a chair next to me.  Face to face he dictated a report to me, as I typed it.  It was weirdddddd!  But I did very good on it actually ... it was an easy (for me) report. 

I don't want the job though ... they practically told me on the interview the job pays from 9-5, but the hours are WHATEVER IS NEEDED - and that they needed 'flexibility'.  You know what that means - the job better become my entire life.  And I'm not willing to do that. 

Thanks guys!  And have a happy holiday !


I had a phone interview...
with Amphion. No, they don't ask you any test questions or anything like that. It's simply an opportunity for them to see what you are looking for and what they have to offer, etc. Fairly quick and painless. The woman I spoke to was very nice!
Interview attire
I left the corporate world less than two years ago to be at home with my kids, but when I left pant suits were very much the norm, and I think that would be very appropriate for a job interview, even if there won't be a dress code. I think the days are gone where you have to wear a skirt to be professional. There are so many nice looking, professional pant suits now. Good luck to you!
I just saw an interview with Chris from AI
on our local Fox news.  Everyone was figuring he was going to win and he was supposed to fly home tonight and there were going to parties all over town tomorrow.  Anyway, he couldn't get out a complete sentence that didn't have "well you know" in it.  Articulate he isn't. 
Dressing for an Interview
When I was in a class at college that helped you to prepare for getting a job, women were to wear a suit, jacket and skirt with white blouse, and guys a suit and white shirt and tie.

I realize this is just an interview at K-mart but I have heard of others landing a job partially because they made a great impression by dressing up regardless of the position they were interviewing for. My brother was one of those people that did this for an auto parts delivery man position and they told him how impressed they were with his attire. So, I really do think it makes a big statement and difference a lot of times.

Wishing your son the best of luck! I say dress up the best he can, present himself professionally, and he will be more apt to land the job. :)
Interview Attire
I just finished with an in-house interview a month ago. I wore a nice black skirt, a white blouse, and a nice blazer over the blouse. To complete the outfit, I had on black pantyhose and black shoes.
when was it ever $80,000/year! Every interview I had with them
it was $25,000/year, even last year, it was still $25,000/year, no taxes. If it were $80,000, bombs or no bombs, I'd jump on it in a minute, and I would wear a burka ... it beats what some transcriptionists wear to work already LOL!

job interview - anxious
Ok, I am hoping to be interviewed for a MT job at a local hospital.  I have not been through an interview process in quite some time.  What can I expect in the way of interview questions? TIA
? Interview questions (sm)
They could possibly ask the following questions:

What do your consider to be your weakness?

If the MT supervisor is asking this question, it could mean lack of exposure of certain specialties or ESL dictators. Be honest. If you lack exposure in any of the areas required for the position, tell he/she you like challenges and are very interested in increasing your ed/attending any continuing ed classes the corporation has to offer.

If the position has flexible scheduling, please share which shift you would be the most productive. (As for me, I am not a "morning person.")

What do you consider to be your strengths?

If you have extensive exposure with multiple specialities/ESL share that info, but just "do not exaggerate."

Where would you like to be in next 5 years with this corporation?

Think this over carefully.

If you not a "CMT" and if you wish to become one, share with them your future professional interests.

If they have shared their transcription platform and it is not user-friendly to
your expectations, share with them your interest in "future transcription technology research team" or "editor/quality performance." (Just don't tell them their system is not user-friendly -- if it is not and you know you will have difficulty reaching your production, you do not have to accept the position.)

If they do not have a "remote/home-based" program and you would like to be home-based, share with them your interest in assisting with piloting a home-based program.

They should share with you first how they compensate their transcriptions -- hourly, base rate plus incentive, or straight production.

If the job is pay per production, get all the info on "line count formula."

If you are offered the position and think their platform will limit your production, share your concerns up front.

I am not certain they can ask why you are leaving your present job, but, if so, share with them your interest in enhancing your healthcare career. And, if you are interest in the benefits they offer, share that also. Try not to tell them anything negative about your present position.

Wishing you much success with your interview!!!

Thank You All For Your Interview Answers!!
There have been many great responses to my 'MT student' interview questions. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to answer my questions. Your responses are all very helpful to me. I really can't wait to graduate and start my new career!! Thank you all once again!!!
Interview coming up...
I have an interview coming up for PT with an ortho clinic ON SITE.  I have 3 years experience in acute care and op notes and getting paid 7/cpl right now working at home.  What line rate or pay per hour do you think I should ask for now that I'd be buying clothes and gas?
Flub the interview?
What do you mean by flub the interview? That's what you need to address.

If you do ok on the test, then there is something else turning off the employer. I'm not sure that taking a course would help with that, unless by "flub the interview" you mean you can't answer technical or basic sciences questions.

dr. office interview

I have an interview Monday for an in office transcription position in Indiana.  I was wondering if anyone could comment on what a good per hour wage would be?

I have been in transcription for 6 years now and have been working at home the entire time.  I now need to make more $$ and would like to have an idea when I get in there.


Am going for an interview for in-house RAD MT for association
in Austin, Texas. Can anyone give me an idea of the pay scale for this market--probably hourly? I've never worked in-house in a large city. I'd really appreciate any advice.
Interview with Transcend was easy
Hi!  I left MQ several months ago to joint Transcend.  I did not feel at all like their "interview" was that.  Instead it was a very cordial phone conversation.  Try not to be nervous (easier said than done) but the person I spoke with was very pleasant and easy to talk to.  The hiring process was smooth and I'm enjoying my job!  Good luck! 
Phone interview with Amphion.........??
Has anyone ever done this?  How does it go?  I've already taken the test but they called to schedule a phone interview.  I was hoping she would just talk to me when she called because I'm curious as to what they will or won't offer, and now I have to wait over the weekend.  I'm just curious if she is going to do a phone test now or just talk to me about what they have available, etc.  Any info on this company would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks so much. 
He's in management so the interview process sm
is pretty long> He has applied to a couple of places, just still in the midst of the interviews. Also, he's been very busy working long hours since I've known him so right now he's enjoying the opportunity to be with the kids for a little while. Meanwhile he's also still getting his regular salary so my income is being used to reduce our debt.
I read bits of how the interview went. It will be sad for sure.
I have peer interview tomorrow.

I am interview for an in-house position.  I had the interview and a week later I was called for the peer review.  Never been on a peer interview and don't know what to expect...any ideas?  I plan to just be myself just like in the interview.

Tough line requirements (1500 line/day) but I'm optimistic.  I hope to gain tips with short cuts to qualify for incentive programs, etc. if I am chosen for the job.



i always interview my prospective employer,
but not in the manner you stated. I let them tell me their spiel, then i ask a multitude of questions and discuss any concerns. Then i let them make the offer or not, but by then i already know whether i want the job or not. I do think your interviewee was too forward (for lack of a better word) here.
