Must be your manager 'cause mine lets me off at the drop of a hat. sm
You should ask again, saying that you have extenuating circumstances. Offer to work extra during the pay period to make up any missing hours, if possible.

As for slowness, it is MUCH IMPROVED since earlier this year.
I would call or drop an email inquiring.
You can make up your lines whenever you like. Just drop them and email letting them know that you ar
I received mine.....
I had my computer before the phone call.  I had to set it up before training. 
I haven't received mine yet either but considering
the information posted on here, I'd say it is favorable. I think a few things people have been complaining about have been addressed and given:

1) Universal treatment. Sounds like the entire company is now under one plan of hours/production/base tiers/benefits/status. No one will be able to say they get a raw deal because of the office they are in. Everyone will get the same treatment in those areas.

2) A method of control for the workload -- in answer to those who complained about the SEs and others who jump on at the end of the payperiod to hog the work (not my words -- others, mind you): Now everyone has to adhere to a "firm schedule". OT only at supervisor's approval. Set number of hours. These things add up to more control over distribution of work and coverage for their accounts that they can count on.

3) The ability to move up in tier -- you can test and move up to another tier if you want to. Equates to you having an option on your base rate.

4) The ability to keep your incentive on a daily basis; and it sounds like it adds up to more than the incentive we are currently getting. Especially with so many plans floating around for incentive/production/bonuses, etc.

5) Time to make a decision. This is October 2nd. Sounds like you have a month to decide what you want to commit to and 3 months to get yourself prepared to start your new commitment in January. Time to analyze and think through what is best for your situation.

We knew that there was no way everyone was going to be happy about this plan because everyone's needs are different. Everyone has their own idea of what they want from their job. However, it sounds like a positive step in the right direction. Many of the bottom-line complaints have been resolved with this plan.

I'm satisfied with it. Making mock schedules right now so I can be ready to go FT at 39 hours!

My best wishes to all on making their decisions!
I just received mine today.
Received mine on Saturday 2/2/08
I received mine about an hour ago. They told me they are less than
1/5 of the way through the resumes and responses and it will take a few days to get through them. Call their office if you want to move to the front of the list.
I too received the gift and it is very nice and quite useful (nm)
Have to post that I received a very nice holiday bonus from QT which

received the email, nm
received the email
no email received
can you provide more info?
a lot of us received an email
asking when we would be able to have an interview--NOTHING, NADA after that.

received 2 email warnings

I had received 2 email warnings

I received no such email, and I was paid on the 8th, not the 7th, and sm

since the line counts have not even been issued, it would seem highly unlikely that I am going to be paid on the 22nd.

I am sorry that you seem upset by my question, but I do not think it is unreasonable to want to know when I will be paid.

As far as letting you know anything, you have distanced yourself from the MTs so much, I really doubted that you would care.  Thanks for responding to me at least on the message board.

I received an email from JG stating spaces would
be paid now too. Got it at 9:19 a.m. with a follow up email 4 minutes later stating for clarification, this is permanent.
Yes, to me too. In fact, I think it was an Indian name in the email I received.
The Transcription Doctors?? I received an email about a job. Anyone know who they are?
Just checking them out.
I have received no email about such conference call.
Where did you get that from, and who sent it out.  Give initials, pls.  I got missed somehow.
Keystrokes is definitely hiring. I received an email from them saying that they sm
are hiring a lot of new MTs. They emailed CMTs from what I can tell, as they also emailed a few friends of mine as well. Three of us have taken positions. The timing was right; I have had it with MQ.
I don't believe I trashed the company, and I had not received the email yet. sm
And yes, she is cheery and full of hope and promise, but that doesn't pay the bills now.  I appreciate your compassion. 
I applied on Friday and received an email
on Sunday asking about my availability for an interview. I responded on Sunday with totally open availability and I have not heard anything back. What should I make of this?
A month or so ago I received an email from Axolotl
Offering me a position, but the recruiter was very up front and told me it was an extremely difficult, heavily ESL dictator account, so I passed.

I'm not sure if that's the account for which they still have an opening, or if they've got something else available now.

I've never heard of the other place, so I can't help there. You might check the archives just in case there's in there.

I received an email from someone about Keystrokes being for sale - it is lie. sm

Yes, the owners met with the CEO of Transcend and went to dinner but it was 2 years and it was NETWORKING.  They had no intentions of selling to them and when they informed them of that, Transcend stopped coming around.  I work in the office.  Get your facts straight.

I received an email from TransTech stating that they
are about to hire for many positions but just last week I read lots of posts on here about people running out of work.  At one time I had been really interested in working for them but this is really confusing and makes me very wary. 
I received an email today stating it was all approved. :-) nm

I received an email today stating it was all approved. :-) nm

Submitted resume 9/28 late at night. Received email today. nm
sure you got the same email? According to mine, the family
and what they are moving away from is (was) top notch.

You only pay a deductible for certain services (hospitilizations and such) but for office visits and routine well care and RX, the copays are decent. The vision plan and dental plan stayed about the same.
Mine starts with an S too, but no big email.
YOU are full of crap! I don't know what your email said, but mine said
due to the ongoing banking crisis, we will be discontinuing direct deposit at this time.  I smell a management rat ---> named Vicki.
I am sitting here looking at an empty screen also so dont feel alone. What is going on with MQ out

of work like this. I have 4 backups and am still out. I guess they are hot and heavy on this turnaround time being nonexistent so they are over hiring now and we will look at more empty screens.

The envelope please....
The winner of the Drama Queen award for sheer madness goes to....


Thanks for the theatrics though...and, in case you weren't aware of it, the sky is NOT falling!!!
purple envelope?


i got an email from them. Very nice lady, would love to work for
I'm sure they pay very well but I need the insurance. I went with JLG.
Mark bill and envelope "CONFIDENTIAL,"
address to doctor personally with a handwritten note attached to your bill stating, Will you please have someone take care of this? This happened to me. The office manager was embezzling funds which he knew nothing about it until I brought my bill to his attention. My bill has been paid immediately in the 15+ years since then. Good luck.
I got an automated email shortly after and received info from Debra shortly after that. NM
I watch the news out of Atlanta. The story they are handing out about the stolen medical records is that the company Grady outsources to outsourced it yet to another vendor and that is where the records were taken from. Sounds like, to me, it was offshored through their original vendor!! I would love to know the REAL story!!!!
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.
Only former CyMed emps got their info stolen, right?
This has only happened to SPi employees who were former Cymed folks, right? I haven't heard of any SPi employees getting the letter...Anyone have confirmation or know otherwise?
Did you guys hear about the stolen records at Grady Hospital
Grady Hospital in Atlanta, Ga. The news is reporting that patient info was stolen by some transcription employees who worked for an outsourced company who again outsourced some of the work. Anybody know which company does transcription for Grady..I'm just curious. Please email me if you know.

Here is the article from the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

The FBI is investigating the theft of medical records of patients at Grady Memorial Hospital, officials said Friday.

Grady spokeswoman Denise Simpson provided few details on the thefts that were discovered late Thursday. She said it remains unknown how many patient records were stolen, which patients were affected or how the records were stolen.

The records pertained to recorded physician comments that Grady sent to a vendor to transcribe into medical notes. The records were stolen from a subcontractor employed by the vendor. The missing records were kept on computer files.

Grady officials do not at this point believe the records contained patients' Social Security numbers or financial information such as credit card numbers, but Simpson emphasized that investigators are only starting their inquiry.

Simpson did not identify either the vendor or subcontractor.

We sincerely regret the occurrence of this breach of confidentiality of patient records in the hands of one of our vendors, Simpson said in a prepared statement, and we are hopeful that our quick response to this theft will significantly reduce any negative consequences for our patients and the physicians who care for them.

She said Grady would notify the patients as soon as possible.

It is unclear who might have stolen the records or for what purpose, she said.
Very nice owner, nice work, nice place - sm
the leave you alone.  I left because they do not budge from their pay which was kind of mediocre.  I would go back if I had to because they were extremely nice.
Drop it already! ENOUGH! DONE! OVER! nm
Is there a reason you cannot let this drop?
We are all tired of all the nonsense, but seems to me you are tyring to continue it!
Drop Hyphen
Thanks for setting me straight and thanks for your time in answering.

I think you can drag and drop it.
Isn't that working for you?
Did they also drop the rate?
If this is the case, then this is why.  If not, and it is as you say, I would start sending out resumes and don't leave until you have another jobtained and even work both for a time if you can, to see if you like the place.  Some management style is punishing, they feel this is the way to do it WHERE it should be the opposite, people will work their guts out if they just be nice and fair.  Start looking for a better place. Their loss.
I had to drop my coverage -
I could not afford to pay the premiums as I had no work. I was basically working just to pay that.

Also, since they paid on a tier plan, I went from making over 11 cpl to making 6 CPL at the same time. That is why they do not mind overhiring - they get the same work done for much less money, so that means more money in their pockets.
You do realize what MQ is doing right now is exactly what Spheris does. I still think they may drop
SE but hope not but Spheris does not have IC or SE so if there is a plan in the works MQ may just have employees.
Hope that stays the same because it is apt to drop
as mine did. Lot of us outsourced from a major hospital and went from salary and incentive to less than 4 months later VR at 4 cents a line, still make that but on straight it is 8 (over 30 years experience) but I average about $18.75 an hour and that is because of my speed only. When pay and incentive though over 40 thou a year so quite a drop.
So, if your the lucky soul who gets 7.4 cpl and you drop below 98.9%, then you'd get 6.4 cpl..wow
