I used to have a QA guy that couldn't transcribe, couldn't fill in a blank,
but was anal retentive when it came to punctuation. You would have a report with 10 blanks in it because of poor sound quality, and he wouldn't fill in one blank, but he had put commas all throughout your report, or taken apostrophes out, etc. and he wasn't correct in his punctuation a lot of the time. Several of the MTs complained about him and asked to not have him do their QA, so he was demoted from QA to an MT. Well, as I said earlier, he couldn't fill in a blank. I saw a couple of his reports and there was blank after blank in reports that I had no trouble with at all. He also didn't proof his reports because he would have inapproriate/incorrect expansions in them. Not sure if he left on his own, or didn't really have a choice. Anyway, talk to your supervisor. Maybe this person is just on a power trip, knows you are new and wants to train you to do it her way, even if your way isn't incorrect. I think punctuation is a valid issue, but if it doesn't change the integrity of the report and there are no other errors it shouldn't be flagged by QA. You could also take into account her corrections and maybe try to use a few more commas, etc. and that might help.
Oh, I couldn't understand them. I didn't try them all, but the first couple, I couldn't und
couldn't -- you couldn't care less
Couldn't...you couldn't care less.
Couldn't Have Said It Better Myself!
You are correct!
Boy, I couldn't have put that better
I hope you find what you're looking for. I'm still looking too. Have 8 W2's to turn in this year.
I already have.... couldn't take it any more. nm
I couldn't have said it better. Thanks! nm

Very good post! Very straight forward and honest. I was a recruiter as well, it can be pretty good money, but as this poster said, you are told what you need to say and a lot of the time given false information about the account you are hiring for. It's a very rewarding job most of the time and I personally met a ton of truly wonderful people, but on the flip side - this is the person who gets nailed the minute something goes wrong whether it from the new employee or the supervisor of the account. Very thankless position. Think twice before wishing to do this.. very high stress. Good luck to you!!
No, no, no - that couldn't have been the SAME
She would never be condescending or disrespectful of MTs. She, herself, is an MT and has the deepest respect for what we do. I think you must have spoken to someone else.

Read carefully and learn.
Yep, yep...couldn't have said it better myself
We GaGirls got it goin'on...very well put, very well said...Thank you for summing up the whole ugly situation.
Couldn't have said it better myself!
I couldn't have said that any better myself
I agree. This is an information board. People are supposed to come on here and ask questions about companies. Isn't that the point of this forum??? A lot of information is very outdated and people would like current info about companies before applying with them. Lighten up. If someone asking a simple question irritates you that much, then just ignore the post. This is the exact reason why I don't come on this site nearly as much as I used to. Almost every time I have ever asked a question or posted a response to someone else's question, I just about always had at least one person jump all over me. It's a shame.
LOL - couldn't have said it better myself.
couldn't have said it better!
AGREE WITH YOU TOTALLY --- I'm getting tired of eating dirt!!!
I couldn't have said it any better....
I'm just about sick of testing, testing, and more testing and hearing nothing or some cpl offer that isn't enough to survive on. I'll leave it at that. You've said it all. I think it's time to change professions. It's pathetic.
I couldn't have said this any better myself. ... nm

Very well said! I couldn't agree more! (nm)

I worked for MQ for 6 years, and they went from bad to worse. I am glad I do not work there anymore. I worked every weekend (my choice) and almost every holiday for them. They do not give you any differential for working w/e or holidays and will try to screw you out of any $$ they possibly can. After 6 years, no one even said thank you, good luck..nothing!!! I now work for a company that actually appreciates my work!
Bravo! Couldn't have said it better myself
Never had a problem with MQ until DQS. I am chained to this desk from sun up to sun down just trying to make the line count. It was NOT like that before DQS - I actually made very good, but now I can barely get by. What is really disturbing to me is that it is obvious a very big problem to a large number of MTs, yet MQ turns a blind eye. I guess as long as the big dogs are getting their fair share, then they are not worried about who is actually keeping them in business - the MTs. Without us, where would they be??
Couldn't agree more, LOL! (nm)
Flo COULDN'T have written this!
I tried it but couldn't do a good job of it.
It would be nice to just test out their platform before signing on with them and giving out so much personal information. If you spend a lot of time with data entry before even beginning the report, you can't really make any money that way either regardless of the nice pay rate.
If I tried to answer you, I couldn't get
Couldn't find it.
Could you e-mail me privately and let me know what company this is in California? Thanks!

I am so tired of reading messages from miserable, crabby MT's, who blame their lack of production or being fired from a company, on everything else, but themselves. If that poster was fired from Spheris, it was with good reason. If you cannot cut it at Spheris, they cut you loose. You have 90 days (3 months) to meet your production goals, and judging from your spelling and grammar you probably started on a fairly low level account. I have mentored MT's, done editing, QA audits, and transcription, and the only way to make money is to work HARD!!! That is something that so many people that I have trained do not seem to understand. You have to work to make money and to get your production in.
I totally agree with your post, and I just wanted you to know.
Tried the web address given but couldn't get in. nm
Couldn't agree more (sm)
Feast or famine is correct, but you have to fight for work and fight even harder for some decent communication. I give a thumbs down for this company.
Couldn't agree more
I applaud how well you put this. I have been in this profession over 45 years and still love and respect it. Perhaps it has become all about the money and who makes more, instead of taking pride in ourselves and the work we produce. Money is important, but it is not everything. If more people would strive for quality, stand by their good morals and ethics, and stop worrying about outsources, voice recognition, etc, perhaps this profession could be elevated to where it belongs. For now, I will also continue to be the best I can be and keep moving forward. Remember the Dictaphone??? I remember using a tape recorder and a manual typewriter -- oh my.
I couldn't agree with you more - sm
When I worked for a company, (before I went into recruiting) I would need to find subcontractors for projects. I heard yes, yes yes all the time and I would tell them the deadline. We even paid very well ($3.25/double spaced page which comes out to $30/hour or up) We paid more if it was a tighter deadline. Come the day of the deadline I would hear excuse after excuse after excuse oh my kids were sick I needed you to pay me up front because I didn't believe you were actually going to pay that much or this was the best I had the choice of going out with a man to try to get married so I wouldn't have to do this kind of work or working, which do you think I picked.
So you're right, work ethics have gone right out the window.
Unfortunately, that company decided to offshore a lot of their projects - as much as I am against offshoring, I couldn't blame them.
Couldn't agree with you more
Google is not a reliable source for spellings, terminology, drugs, etc.
I have had MTs tell me but I found it on google
I believe you, too. You couldn't have pulled that out of a hat. nm
I never got mine and I couldn't do anything
Called the Dept of Labor cause I earned that PTO. Even gave 2 weeks notice. There was nothing I could do cause in my state they don't have to pay it. Crummy...Just another thing to add to the long list of reasons why not to work for OSi.

We don't need to know the intimate details of how the business is run, but for loyalty, dedication, and effort at furthering the well being of the company (not just a paycheck), we deserve to be treated as more than a means to an end or cog in the wheel. I hope each MT who did the right thing for QT sees their efforts rewarded in the future. This situation has brought grief to a lot of people - time to move forward and close the door on QT once and for all. They don't deserve any more of our time or trouble and can be absolutely certain they'll never be worthy of it again.
I couldn't agree more!
I have been with KS since this past February and have never been happier! I have two excellent accounts; one ER and one basic 4 hospital account as a backup, and I never, ever run out of work. I also have an excellent rapport with my lead MT and I love it! I make excellent money there, and my check is always direct deposited right on time without any errors. I had worked for a few other companies before Keystrokes, and they couldn't even come close to KS as far as how well they treat their employees, etc. KS has been a huge breath of fresh air to me, and I feel very fortunate to have had such a positive experience with them! I am sure I am going to be bashed left and right and be accused of being a recruiter or management, but I am just an MT with an opinion.
QA couldn't be nicer to me.
Very helpful and complimentary of my work, which sure is different from what you hear about other companies.
You couldn't pay me enough money now.
Couldn't agree more
Was so tedious and time-consuming. I hardly believed it is being used. My hands cramped and you cannot advance with the footpedal while you were listening and it jumped ahead too fast which caused you to have to constantly back-pedal. No, thank you. Horrible.
I couldn't work for 6.5 cpl at TTS
LOL. Obviously someone who either couldn't get hired by them
or couldn't hack it once there. Get a life, moron.
I couldn't agree with you more.
WORKING phone numbers are especially important.
I just couldn't figure out
what company and if so, why say CMTs only and then not put the rate of pay. I will never be a CMT either (20 years in MT field) and I think I can pretty much do what any CMT can do other than pay $300.00 for worthless initials. I know a CMT and she got offered less than me at my company. So, for whatever its worth (probably nothing), I just thought I'd ask about this one-liner ad demanding CMTs for a maybe account as to what the pay would most likely be since they are demanding certification.
My SIL graduated from a course and thinks she's certified; I had to tell my brother that she's not certified until she takes the test by those ladies. Anyway, the client has the ultimate say-so, not the BOS. So even if you pass the test, does that mean you follow those guidelines? Doubt it!!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't at 4 cpl for editing
I went deeply in debt at 4 cpl for editing, no way would I do it for 3 cpl.
Not when 80% or more of the VR reports require 90% editing.
When 90% require only 10-20% editing, THEN you can make money, which is my understanding of more how VR should acutally operate.
I couldn't disagree more. sm
They have always been nothing but understanding with my family issues, scheduling, etc. I've been with them going on 3 years and while no company is perfect, they have been a great fit for me.
I couldn't find anything either, but...
I like her communication style and it seems there will be plenty of work. She seems to be straightforward to me, so I'm going to give her a shot.
I've had similar offers where I couldn't find anything about the MTSO, good or bad, but for whatever reason got a negative vibe and declined the offer. I'm not getting this feeling with TMI, so I've accepted her offer.
Time will tell, but I'm optimistic at this point.
I couldn't get out of there fast enough.
Like the other poster said horrible voice quality. They have terrible communication. Constant emails with rule changes by the hour. I found it very hard to make any money.
It's couldn't care less...
not could care less. No wonder you're broke.
couldn't be happier for you
Then there is hope . . . if you don't mind saying, what type of work are you doing now?
Very well-said, and 100% true. Couldn't
