how long did it take for them to send you the stuff to return the equipment? I resigned on 2/25/06 and still have their equip. Have emailed supers with no response. I have been toying with the idea of emailing the CEO. I wonder how long you have to keep it before it becomes yours? Any lawyer out there who knows the answer to that???? TIA

Amen Sister, Amen! Excellent post. (nm)
Just left a company that kept doing that to me!
I also worked on 4 accounts with VERY different account specifics. I wonder if we are talking about the same company here? Also, I was shifted from one work type to another. Then I got thanked for helping out. The only people it helped out was them because I had to work my fingers to the bone to achieve their line count requirements! Each day literally became a marathon. When I inquired about the need to have me on so many different accounts I was labeled hard to work with and was treated very rudely. I am not a newbie MT either - I have more than 6 years of solid experience in many different work types, acute care, and multispecialty clinics. There are better companies out there. Good luck to you.
That's why I left the O company
Has anyone left MDI-MD for another company and.. sm
been glad they did?  I have worked at MDI-MD for about 5 years and feel they have overhired as my accounts are often low on work.  Keep seeing good things about Keystrokes and Transtech (and sure other good companies exist) and have wondered if I would be better off there or somewhere else. If anyone has advice and doesn't want to post here please feel free to email me. TIA!

How would anyone yank my chain when NO ONE knew I was resigning from my current company (had not yet turned notice) and NO ONE knew I had accepted a position with a different company? Please explain that one to me as you seem to know quite the Merriam Webster of the MT world.
This sounds like the company I just left!
I wonder if the MTSO has changed the name of the company? If it is the same company, I think you are wise to drop them and do it ASAP.
I left a company as soon as got email saying they were
I left a company when they started doing this.
I was getting all of the crap work and it took about an hour just to get 100 lines. To make things worse, this company didn't even pay for spaces. Needless to say, I left and went to another company. Pooling is never a good thing.
I left that company earlier

They have no communication. I arranged to have a week off as I was moving. This was totally arranged and okayed. Then they took me off the books because they said I did not report to work and had abandoned my job. I explained the situation, and they had to sign me back on with direct deposit, etc. Evidently somebody did not communicate with somebody else in the company. I quit.

I am in a wonderful job now and am glad I went elsewhere. 

I left MQ too...got a great job at a new company. nm
I agree with you!!! I also left a big company for this one and
it's been just a few months and I love it. I don't dread work anymore!!!! No regrets.
I am in the same boat, too. I left a company...

that was always late with a paycheck to work for a new company.  The new company was okay but my hospital was so huge that learning every doctor put me behind the curve.  I tried VR because I thought it would help me catch on faster, and it did, but I am finding my overall VR production is still only 20 to 30% over what I averaged straight transcription at the other company (and they were shorting us 15% on our lines). 

I am also extremly frustrated at having to do all those admnistrative things.  Looking up CCs, looking up patient demographics, changing work types, looking up who signs off on this resident, looking up the spelling of this doctor 7 states away...come on. 

I just left a company after 10 years, making only
I noticed that when I left DSG to work for another company...
my lines increased dramatically...don't know if it is because of the ESLs on the account or what, but lines were so hard to get.
I just left a company due to lack of work, Monica.

Disillusioned....Sue's description sounds like the company you just left
except for the rental fee, which they JUST changed recently, and even then it was higher than the one Sue quoted.  I still say you got a much better deal with Amphion.
I left them to go with another company using the same platform and I made tons more..
It has to be in their line counting and they must not pay for spaces, headers, or footers even though they claim to. I did not know the difference until I switched company. I was shocked that I made in 2-3 hours what I struggled to make in 8-10 at Focus.. As far as I am concerned, they are a huge rip-off and on top of that, they have their Indian QA people checking your work, and if it does not meet their standards, you pay is docked. It was quite disturbing to say the least.
Ditto. Please don't buy a computer for work from this company. I left (sm)
this company because of lack of work.

If you cannot see the Medquist link in the left column, you need to delete your cookies and empty your cache file.  That will resolve your problem.


Left end of July for a company paying more and I set my own hours. Much less stress too. (nm)
I left MQ after years and went with a highly rate company on this board (sm)
my account has dried up and I am constantly out of work now...same with backup account.  I like the company I'm with and don't want to leave but I HAVE to have a steady account.  I realize there are slow times of the year but on this account they have overhired and now it's low a lot of the time.
Wonderful company!!! Left for personal reasons. Would go back with no hesitation! nm
Has anyone ever left Keystrokes and gone back? I left a few months ago and realize that I made a


It is as simple as filling out a form. I did it when I left an MTSO and when I left sm
a non-MT position at a company years ago.

What company? I did not know that any of them offer 401K anymore.

You would think in order to succeed, they would want to treat their good MTs like gold, and help the newbies out. Instead there is nothing but backstabbing. Having said that, there ARE some good people still working there, why they have not been run off yet, I have no idea. But my hat goes off to them, the good guys fighting the good fight...you know who you are! As for SD, she was always extremely nice and encouraging to me. It was when she stepped down when all hell broke loose and the company went to the crappers.
Amen Amen Amen
Amen!! nm
Amen to that one.
The whole "lets blame the IC" is really getting boring. I too am an IC and work my scheduled hours. I always call before logging in after my scheduled hours to see if I am needed, and I am always told "yes". It is the end of the pay period and guess what employees......IM OUT OF WORK TOO.
and Amen!
Amen! NM
This person's obsession with recruiters and the fact that he/she seems to be perched just waiting for the opportunity to throw out that question is a little disturbing. Enough already! Maybe, just MAYBE the majority of these people really are MTs who are happy with the co. they work for. And if some of them are recruiters, big hairy deal! And no, I'm NOT one - geesh!
Ha, we must work for the same company!.  I'm thoroughly disgusted.  Because of reckless overhiring we have to be a slave to the computer for 14 hours a day 7 days a week just to meet quota or face severe punishment.  The holiday excuse is old and a bunch of bull.  But what do they care, they're salaried. 
We all know there are good companies, and there are bad companies. We each have to decide that on our own experiences. It is fine to share personal experiences but that should be done in a professional manner - not with the personal digs. I don't know the first thing about Keystrokes either, but in my personal opinion, some of these posts are not helping the reputation of the company. If it's good, you don't have to defend it. One or two people on this board are not going to ruin the company's reputation.
Had all this stuff to fill in on an opening page - right? took minutes of hand entering stuff before you could start working on your lines.
amen to that
Amen to that!
AMEN! Say it again...
what they (Heartland, or Heartless) lost is everyone else's gain! Thank you Recruiter!
AMEN to that!! nm

Amen on that!
They know who they are and I have no respect. They are dumping us in the potty bigtime. What is the word I have for them? cheater, loser, no those words are too good. And even worse are their employers who let them get away with it, work the shit out of other people and then scream wheres my profit? Nannaannanay... waaawaa
amen to that
It is unfair that we have to sit back and take the abuse...and they just move on to the next MTSO with not a second thought! AMEN! AMEN!
