Leaving Mmodal for TransTech - Kathy

Posted: Jun 22, 2012

I just accepted a job today with Transtech. I went through all info I could find at Mmodal and Ultipro to find what I earn per line but can't find it anywhere. Even emailed my CCM a few days ago to find out where that info is, never heard back. I know I should know it but I just don't. I wanted to compared the two companies with what I'll earn. Also, I'd appreciate all the pros and cons about TransTech and what you all think about leaving Mmodal for Transtech. Thanks. Feel free to email me if you wish.

paid per line - Say what

Who works and doesn't know what they are paid. OK, 16 year olds but I'm guessing you're older than 16.

How do you track your pays if you have no clue WHAT you are paid?

This is mind blowing to me, absolutely unreal.

never mind, just forget it, it happens - nm

WOW, can you BE any more harsh? - anon

Working for this company, you should know by now *nothing* is "unreal". I was hired many, many years ago and do know what I am earning but only because I REMEMBER - if that information ever leaves my memory for any reason, I'll be up crap creek because our wages aren't printed on ANYTHING or documented ANYWHERE. We are purely on the "honor system" with this company so the fact that one of our own doesn't know what she's earning doesn't come near as a surprise to me as it obviously does to you.

You should try a little diplomacy with your responses - we are all in the same boat.

And to the original poster: Congratulations on your move - I don't personally have any experience with the company you've been hired at but in my eyes any move away from MModal is a good one. Good luck.

I've done this job for 30+ years and I've never, EVER not known what I was paid. It is absolutely unfathomable to me that now not only ONE person has said she doesn't know but someone else supports the not knowing. Unbelievable.

Sorry if you think that's harsh but it's no wonder so many women are in financial straights if this is how more than 2 of you think/work.

Troll alert. MT Working is back.
that would be no - say what
[ In Reply To ..]
Although I *was* a working MT but I don't troll here. My point is a valid one. It's utterly ridiculous to not know how/what you are being paid. It's just not common sense.

A good MT is going to know exactly how they are paid, track that paid, and insure they are getting every penny.

They do state, in writing, what we are making when we are hired; right now the pay is 4 cpl for VR work and 8 cpl for straight typing.
MModal's pay is different for everyone - anon
[ In Reply To ..]
As of right now, 4 cpl and 8 cpl for everyone across the board isn't true.
It's harder to know exactly what you are being paid anymore because - dnr
[ In Reply To ..]
they have taketh away so much and, once in a blue moon reinstated a few measly fractions of a penny.
- At one point, took away weekend differential
- at one point, took away shift differential, although I think they reinstated that because of the furor over losing that.
- As I recall, they made cuts in wages to most of us with the decree that everybody will get 4 cents a line for ASR (which is pile of bunk because, with my group's terrible ASR, my line count is not much higher and definitely doesn't add up to my straight typing rate.
- And the biggest one of all - THEY TOOK AWAY INCENTIVE PAY! - and there went at least $4 per hour.

I have never gotten a proper explanation about how they itemize and express the rates they put on the second pay stub we get every pay day. Payroll has little to no understanding of what we do. Heck, they can't even figure it out enough to itemize it on 1 pay stub.

I was supposed to be getting 10 cpl and 6 cpk for - speech wreck, but who in the

world could possibly figure out if it was correct?

you could - see message

just use your calculator and divide your MT lines by your MT rate and your SR lines by your SR rate. Or divide the dollar amount by the number of lines.

lines - nm

CCM cared enough to look into it and just now let me know where the information is on Ultipro.

Contact Human Resources. They will provide you rate. - luluwu

It is *ridiculous* that we have to contact Human Resources to confirm our pay - MME2

[ In Reply To ..]
In NO OTHER INDUSTRY and NO OTHER COMPANY on earth does an employee need to do so much leg work to find out their wages. Even if you are a migrant worker standing on a corner willing to pick apples from a tree there is NEVER any question about what you will make. Hell even McDonald's workers have their pay right there in black and white on every single pay stub with their rate of pay in plain sight.

We must be FOOLS. This is the only company on EARTH that gets away with keeping its employees so in the dark - or requires them to do so much work to figure out their pay. Now THAT is what is UNREAL.

It's not rate of pay that's confusing, it's what they consider a - line. lulu

Why? - Not confused
[ In Reply To ..]
I'm not sure why that is confusing.

go to Ultipro - see message

[ In Reply To ..]
Hover mouse over Myself and straight down see where it says Compensation? Rate 1 is your SR rate, rate 2 is your MT rate, Rate 3 is your vacation time rate.

Exactly. I'm not sure why its so hard to find - Afraid to explore

[ In Reply To ..]
The first thing I do when I get a new program or tool is click on everything. I'm not sure why some people have so much trouble finding the rate. It actually has it again under Pay Detail for every job you've typed.

I was wondering the same too. - buddymt

[ In Reply To ..]
We also got an email when it changed to Ultipro about how your pay calculates to what the piece rate is in Ultipro. Payroll will explain it to you if you don't understand it. They are rather nice people in payroll.

Line Rate - Shelly

[ In Reply To ..]
I went in and checked under compensation and what is listed under rate 2 is quite a bit more than I make per line. Why do you think that is?

Because it's not a reliable way to check your wages - just like I said

[ In Reply To ..]
So many here gave such "snippy" answers about it being UNREAL not to be able to EASILY put our hands on our wages but yet the very way they all recommended doesn't even come CLOSE to what I make.

My whole entire point earlier was that we shouldn't need an accountant, a doctor, lawyer and Indian Chief to confirm our wages, it should be right there on our stubs in black and white.
You don't need them. Read the first page - this is what it says
[ In Reply To ..]
on ultipro when you log in:

"Viewing Line rates on Paychecks

Please be advised that the pay rates on the Pay History section do not show accurately.

Please view your pay in the Pay Earnings Detail section where you can see all earnings with actual rates used for pay. Thanks!

My rates match exactly where it says they are located. Also, under Compensation tab, my rates are correct. Under Other Rates, it shows my ASR rate (first) and my benefit rate (third). My base rate is located above the Other Rates section and its called Piece.

It really isn't as difficult as everybody makes it.

Because rate 2 is not your base rate. - Look in the section above that

Its called "Piece"

QC Leaving?? Leaving More Work For MTs?
Jun 14, 2015

Sorry QC was put on the grid and suffering losses (like we have), but from my point of view the more of them leave, the more work left for us.  Isn't that horrible we are reduced to feeling that way about our co-workers??? Some QC say they are not allowed to do MT unless the account is behind, some say they are allowed when they run out of work.   From the length of time we have been suffering from OOW I have to believe they can and do jump in on our work when out of QC ...

Just wanted to add my voice to the growing chorus of long-timers leaving the Q finally. The account I worked on for 15 years just up and vanished Monday - without a word to any of us.

I know MQ has beaten us all down over the years, but there are actually other companies and people who appreciate our abilities and stamina to say with such a company for so many years in spite of it all :) ...

I've been cleaning out my office to start a new job soon, and I came across some things from the good old days, i.e., before the Q.  I found email certificates my first CCM from 10 years ago sent when I kicked it line count and quality-wise.  She didn't have to do that, but back then, we got respect as much as we gave it (I was HS back then).  I also found some old pay stubs from when I was a tier 1 and just getting into the routine.  I now make 1/6 of what I did wh ...

What I've Seen Since Leaving MT
May 01, 2012

I recently left the MT field but am in a position where I have to review medical records daily. I've come across mistakes that make me question where they came from... was it a VR report that an editor didn't catch... was it a transcription error... or was it a doctor error. Some of the things I've come across were a statement along the lines of "would've healing well"... I figure this was supposed to be something like "wound is" healing well. I came across a discrepancy ...

Curious, as to those getting out of MT, where are you going? I am soooo dissatisfied with this profession today. My wages are half what they were hourly only 4 years ago (VR for me is not profitable). The account specs get more and more complicated and you have to work on at least 5 or 6 accounts to keep work. Add in the hard to understand accents (I mean can't even understand the dictator's name half the time) and the left off demographics, and it is a recipe for low, low wages. I liv ...
