I will be better off working at Wal-Mart as a cashier!

I made an observation.

After editing and making comments for further revision of the intial medical letter (see previous post), and editing another transcription, I calculated my compensation for a job done over a period of 3 hours, with pay depending on the lines I produced (including the document and the comments I gave. No compensation for THINKING.)

I came to $4 for working for three hours...using my own computer, own electricity, and paying for my own internet connection.

Is this job worth my time?

That is the reason I am quitting this job in this particular company! They don't know how to properly compensate a reliable worker.

I hope my next company will be better. If the pay is better, I will see if it is worth the time and effort, and if there are possibilities of relying on it fully and going up the ladder. If not, I still might just use this job as a means to earn while reviewing for USMLE.
