I dont know what that means. I am an SE. I dont sit and wait for work I come back in when it is
there so I never had to deal with Amherst when there was no work because I just stopped working and did other things. My feeling is if this doesnt work there are other jobs out there.
Has anyone ever left Keystrokes and gone back? I left a few months ago and realize that I made a


I really doubt it!!! Left after 2 yrs with them and now very happy!!
OSi lacks professionalism in every aspect. Unqualified managers, horrible tech department, servers always down, on and on.
That STM is back from vaca - why dont you ask her? nm
I left but came back. sm
I was considered a hospital employee.  I left.  They sent me the PL but it took about a month and it was hit heavily with taxes.  I then went back.  I would call your usual POC.  I have found this company to be honest in dealing with me.
I personally know of one MT who left, but came back after...
approximately 5 months of working for another national.  She's been back for a few months and it's going well.
Probably the one who left and came back recently
Heard she was planning to leave again.
I am with you. Left a while back. Very disappointed.
I worked there and left, recentily went back and
this is where I will hopefully retire from.  I went from company to company and was never happy with any of them.  MQ works for me.  Very happy that I went back!
Along the same lines, has anyone ever left TH and gone back with good results?
You went back? I thought they were upset at me when I left because they were looking foward to
working with me and I put them off. :(. I am too shy to even let them know this which is why I put anon. I loved my supervisor Ginny and Becky too, and the work. Thanks for the nice thought. I guess I am chicken LOL, and too chicken to ask to come back. Glad you did and it worked out!
Did any of us who left emails hear back from the MT who was highly recommending her
I left Amphion a couple of years ago and never looked back.
It was one of the best moves I ever made.
Wonderful company!!! Left for personal reasons. Would go back with no hesitation! nm
If you look back in the archives people left when they realized they couldn't make money with it.
I dont cherry pick, never did. I dont do that to my coworkers on my account.

What is the new status. I dont understand what it means. I dont need their benefits nor do I want
I just dont want to hit that extra space if I dont get paid for it, ya know. No message.
If I cant make QA, dont give me work. Dont dock
I didnt get the packet, do we have to take their insurance if we dont need it. I dont want it. Wish
I would have gotten the stupid thing to read.
Well, I know that MTs from my office have quite MQ and they dont post on here but I dont know how
many. I think MTs with MQ may be getting second jobs and just working for 2 different places at the same time which is probably the smart thing to do anymore because MQ will continue with this short TAT and as it spreads throughout other  offices people will continually be running out of work especially after going on DQS.
You obviously have the wrong company. If they dont IM you, then you dont have it on..
I smell management. Nothing you said makes sense unless there is another Focus out there.
Sorry if I dont like gutter humor. Also dont like
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.
Dont kid yourself that people dont know what is going on. Do you honestly think these office people
dont talk. Maybe you should make sure you know what you are talking about before you open your mouth.
I worked in QA for Transcending back in 2000-2001. They were paying hourly back then. SM

The accounts weren't too horribly bad.  The reason I ended up leaving was because slowly but surely they began to inch closer and closer to paying QA by production.  When I first started, the quota was something like 30 reports a day.   We simply had to make sure that we QA'd all reports that were close to being out of TAT first and then do the rest.  Then, my supervisor left and they hired a new one who immediately called a big teleconference meeting and said we had to up production to 60 reports a day.  Then, they started counting lines.  Which was fine because they were still paying hourly.

Next, there was an MT who used VR software because she was blind - yes blind.  Again, when I first started, I was told we had to edit her entire reports because she used the VR software and we had to make sure that everything was correct and made sense.  Then, we are told only check the blanks.  I wasn't comfortable with that and I continued to completely proof every word.  Then I was called on the carpet not because I wasn't meeting the production quota, but because I was ONLY meeting the production quota.  I told them I was proofing all of the MT's work that used VR, I was told that no one ever told me to proof every word of the VR reports and that I needed to fill in blanks and move on.  When I voiced my concerns, I was told that was my job, to fill in blanks and I should move on and strive to product above the standards.  Next thing you know, rumors abounded about changing the QA staff to being paid on production.  So I left. 

There just seemed to me to be too little concern for quality and more emphasis on quantity and I just didn't want to be part of company who would take money out of my pocket just to line their own and that's what they were doing by putting QA on production.  I also am not comfortable with the job of QA being thought of as a blank filler.  There is much more to the QA profession than just simply filling in blanks. 

I don't know if Transcend ever did start paying QA by production, but I could see that the idea was being floated there.  Maybe there was a enough protest that they didn't change from hourly. 

Good luck to you!

Phoenix Medcom- Another apply a few months back, ask to take a test and never heard back??
I applied a month or two ago, received an email from someone asking if I would take a test and said she was getting ready to go on vacation for a week, so I hurried and immediately and told her I'd love to take the test. I never heard back. I waiting thinking she went on vacation and would contact me when she got back to do the test but nothing...very strange..Just wondered if this happened to anyone else.
Has everyone heard back from Keystrokes yet regarding the email we received a while back?
Just wandering why I haven't heard any response yet.
I sent them an email back in August and never heard back sm
Is this company on Long Island? I checked out their website and even tried calling once. Were you successful in contacting them? All i know is that the company is owned by some doctors.

Hopefully, you will hear back. Unfortunately, I immediately heard back from MD-IT
but somehow with over 16 years of experience, I blew the test.  I was soooo disappoionted and yet pretty stunned.  I am by no means perfect but I haven't flunked a test in years.  I expected it in my early years but not this far down the road. I was so confident and they will not tell you which part you did not pass and why so it really just blew my mind.  I must have been in shock for like two hours after I got the email. Oh well, someone will want me....hopefully.  I was thinking about OSi but I don't think I could take another rejection if I never heard back. 
They are a mom and pop. I doubt they could buy anyone.
I doubt SEs will be out with MQ.
I think they probably get very excellent coverage from SEs because there isn't the same schedule/time limitations and therefore SEs feel more free to work as they can.

I'm an SE and I truly hope it doesn't change much for me but, if it does, I will just have to re-evaluate and decide if I want to make that change.

I think SEs may see a changes in the form of base pay rates, shift differentials, etc., all the pay issues but no re-classification as it seems is coming for PT and FT employees. They will probably offer a very attractive employee package for SEs for those who were walking the line about SE vs Employee status.

We will see, I guess.
it could be but I doubt it
I seriously doubt that!
Gimme a break.
Still around. I seriously doubt they are down to
one account.   Still have the same number of MTs and I have plenty of work. 
JLG, without a doubt.
Best co I have ever had the pleasure of working for.
I doubt it but you could ask. NM
doubt it -

Ad posted twice with different wording, same number. Both have since disappeared from board.  Assumed target was an Indian gentleman. He was very emphatic that it was a scam and did not seem puzzled, so all in all, pieces fit more likely with a trick rather than an accident.


No doubt
That's true. I have had almost 2 solid days of this woman! It's literally driving me crazy. It seems the longer I listen to her the less I hear what she is saying. :(
I really doubt it
I don't know how big those companies are, but MQ is such a giant company it would take a lot of companies merging together to pass them in size.
I seriously doubt (sm)

they would let you go if there is no work and you can't make production.  Methinks there must be more to it than that.

Why do you doubt it?
Have you actually worked for Transcend or are you just a doubter?  Management is not stupid.  They know that without the MTs there would be no company and no profit.  Did you have a bad experience you would like to share?
Doubt you could either

impossible to make- cutting out headers, footers, various hidden tokens, etc etc. Does anybody find it funny that the two main companies that are talked about here constantly are TT and KS?  Are there any other companies out there that don't go round and round with the same nonsense all the time?

I doubt it, since... SM
the companies I've worked for only paid an extra $0.0025 (quarter cent) per line for being a CMT.

I wonder if that employer knows that CMT fees & AHDI dues go to fund the special Indian Rate that AHDI and Prometric came up with.
MDI without doubt
I have worked for companies large and small but I have never been treated with such kindness and professionalism as I am at MDI. They have an extremely high standard and are very choosy about whom they hire. They produce quality work. Their tech support is second to none. The QA people are all extremely intelligent and above all, kind. I have worked for the good (MDI) the bad (a large national whichI will not name) and the ugly (smaller MTSOs that could not seem to get their act together for whatever reason). Without a doubt, I would recommend MDI.
I can tell you without a doubt
The person posting that is not from this country. Read it again. You can see from the word usage. They shouldn't be on this board, anyway.
No doubt about it - It has to be ...

a recruiter. I work for Transcend, when there is work. Third day in a row and there is no work. And talking to someone about it - that's a joke, and a bad one at that. 

Anyone thinking that first message is legit, keep on looking.  They will tell you there is plenty of work, great accounts, great benefits but the truth is there is no work, you may initially have a  decent account but plan on them changing you over to another account that is not so great and as far as benefits, there is a good chance you won't meet the minimum requirements because there is no work to be done. 


When in doubt, try the No you, No you
So what happened to all that maturity of yours?
On VR I doubt you will be able to
double your lines. I have been doing VR now for several years and it is extremely hard to double ones lines. I might have done it once in 4 years, not easy although I am told by my company SOME are able to do.
I doubt it.
I seriously doubt they have sent work to India. My accounts are seriously low, but I really think it is a combination of the VR and probably overhiring. I am sure we will get an e-mail in the very near future addressing our concerns. Just hope we can all hang in there. Of all the posters on this board, MDI employees seem to be the most cordial to each other, which is rare. I wish the best to everyone at MDI.
Oh, I have no doubt
they can prove I posted.  The problem is I didn't post anything that could remotely be construed as defation or libel.
