I am not going to argue with you about it. - sm

I'm glad you are happy. I will caution you not to believe everything they tell you. The offshore MTs are NOT a small percentage, no matter what they tell you. And yes, I read the memo.
To those thinking about taking a job with MedWare, they have many good points but also be aware that they are sending much work to India and VR and will continue to do so as that is the way of transcription in this day and age.

I can't argue with you. Not one bit.

I left a fairly major company a while back. Was the head of QA. I failed MT after MT on reviews, sometimes repeatedly, and couldn't get rid of them to save my soul (upper management politics SUCK). I'm talking about the really bad apples here, not people who were 96-98% folks. Everyone can have a bad day, or even a bad month. I'm talking about hateful attitudes, defiantly chronic line padders, blatant cherry pickers, and medical error after medical error.

To this very day every one of them is STILL there, some having been promoted to special teams, etc. All too often it's truly about who you know, not what you do. Now, I pretty much follow BOS2, adhere to client wishes, and I was actually quite lenient in my scoring, but to see people who are unethical, undeserving, and just plain bad MTs get rewarded for their behavior, well, it chaps my hide. If I ever get into QA management again I'll make darned sure beforehand that if I say "yer outta here!" they truly will be "outta here."

On another note, God bless every MT who cares about the patient, cares about quality, and can look at themselves in the mirror every day and say "I did a GREAT job today, and I feel good about being me." If it were within my power I'd double your line rate, triple your incentives, give you a hand and foot massage and buy you a drink!

I'll get off of my soapbox now!



Yep, no one can argue with that. And you can add
Don't want to argue with you, but....sm
I DID send in 30 minutes of dictation in February 2007. I just wanted to give you guys a heads up. I signed a contract and everything.

I still have the emails and the dictation. I will be happy to email you this to show you I'm not making this up.

Heck, I just wanted to give heads up, not fight with anybody.

Yes, 30 minutes of dictation is tough. It took me a long time. I was testing a LOT with companies back then and having a very frustrating time. Just seemed like par for the course at the time. I was trying to gain individual accounts.

I truly did do 30 minutes of dictation per his request. I can prove it. I don't appreciate your insinuation.
Not going to argue with you
A fax machine is not something that an MT uses while doing MT work. MTs should not be expected to own fax machines. It is still my opinion that it is the employers responsibility to mail a hard copy of the required new hire paperwork to all employees and provide a paid means to the employee to return the paperwork.

IMO, it is very unprofessional to email documents to a new hire and expect them to print it out (MT may not have a printer) and mail or fax it back (MT may not have a fax) to them at their own expense. Very tacky.
Can't argue with that......
I'm not going to sit and argue with you...
..and I certainly will not sink to the depth you have and question your credibility or insult you in return.

Whether or not you find me credible is really of no great significance to me. There are enough MTs on this board with decades of experience claiming the same insulting 7 cpl offer.

You've obviously found your pot of gold with WMX. I on the other hand was offended by their offer, laughed at the recruiter as I declined and made the choice to apply elsewhere until I found a job offering a better rate for my skills.

Yes as an IC, the pittance these nationals pass off as benefits and incentives attached to a string do not entice me. I do not feel a need to work harder than I already do just so I can finally earn the cpl I should have been earning all along for my skills.

I earn incentives too for all my weekend and holiday work and I earn it without having to kill myself transcribing a minimum of 800 lines to earn it; tack on another 15% or 20% to my IC rate.

Just as an additional FYI, there are tiered incentives offered at FN too, but I'm not sure exactly the total lines required before they would be applied.

You seem happy at WMX, just as I am happy at FN, so leave it at that. If I wanted to argue, I would just call up my ex.
why argue about it. Either the she will sm
have to go there or she won't go there and won't have a job. I didn't say I agreed with them. I am telling you that they are doing this and if the poster wants to work for them that is what she will have to do.

Personally I WOULD NOT DO IT but she didn't ask if I would do it, she asked if it was legal. Then comes all the dialogue! Go to work!
Can't argue with more money!

Best of luck on the new job!

Obviously I have more integrity than you do. Argue with yourself.
Good bye. You are a joke.
Not even gonna argue, as I can tell 100% from
your dialect that you are Indian.  So, you don't understand our US point of view.  I do not want to work for an Indian owner, a Japanese owner, or an owner from Mars who has, in their own written and published mission statement, to eliminate the US MTs, as they are inferior to Indian MTs. Not my words, CBay's words, and I don't care if they came from Santa Claus, or Mr. Hoffmann, or Tony Soprano. I ain't gonna work for someone who wants to eliminate me and my coworkers. Buh Bye.
Not meaning to argue...
but they DID lie. They initially told me that typing was not required. Just as they will review what I type, they could allow me to QA and review what I have QA'd. Very simple.

Whatever their reasons are for requiring this - they should be honest and tell the folks to whom they make an offer that typing is required.
Not trying to argue your point, just
asking you to explain, so I know, LOL. Thanks much!!!
I am not going to argue with the likes sm
of you. Your word structure doesn't even sound like you are from this country. If not, you don't even belong on this board. Oh but I forgot, Why should this be?
You're just looking to argue...
I got your post completely. And you don't need to lecture me regarding education and getting involved. I've been doing both for quite some time now.
Yes, I hear what you're saying and can't argue with you at all ...sm
It's so disappointing though. In other aspects I think that they're a very fine company, but the other aspects aren't what pays the bills ... =(
