If you had bothered to read correctly- it said

Posted By: SS on 2009-06-05
In Reply to: Early on in the thread, a poster told the OP she should just suck it up and do the job. - This is what we are talking about.

Some years ago working inhouse and my having seniority and supposedly had first choice at vacation, the time I chose was a time another person with less seniority needed for a trip overseas. She had put in for the time I wanted and I was told like it or lump it and I did not have a choice in that week. Being as I was making good money, I just sucked it up and stayed there. HOW DO YOU GET SHE TOLD SOMEONE ELSE TO SUCK IT UP????? SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT HERSELF. READ CORRECTLY NEXT TIME.

If you bothered to read my post--
there were other problems as well. There were problems in all of their depts, not just QA. Let's just say that communication is not one of OSi's strong points. The company's overall attitude played a big part in my decision to leave. I also stated that there are some people who work there that are wonderful and I have no clue why they have not left yet.

I would like to know how you know what my attitude is? I am stating my experiences, you are the angry one. How would you "know" how I take my feedback, whether I blame people, etc, unless you are in the QA Dept? What's my opinion to you, anyway? What makes you such an "expert" of knowing people's attitudes over the years? So, what reason do you have for your panties in a twist? What's YOUR problem and why are you defending OSi so vigorously? You sure are taking this rather personally for someone who is not "involved".

I am not the only person who has had problems with OSi. Apparently there are a lot more out there after reading some of the other posts. We can't ALL be wrong about this company. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out if there is smoke, there is fire.
If you bothered to read my post
I agree with you dear
WEll the bottom line is if you don't want to hear anything that is posted here, then don't read it. It's as simple as that. It appears some people are complaining and posting about people who are posting. I have to laugh at that. Bottom line also, people are not happy at OSi and talking to a supervisor there is like talking to a wall. People are upset because we have a QA Manager who doesn't know anything and is not qualified to do her job and Management does not care. I think their opinion is "oh well, so that one quit, we will just hire another one". Do not ever believe you cannot be repaced. Unfortunately, people looking for jobs and are turned off by OSI. If anyone ever asked me a question about OSI i would be perfectly honest and state my feelings and then refer them to this board. After all this is a "company forum" that's what it is here for. I personally am not one sugar-coat anything unless it's the truth. I have to agree that most of the posts here are right on target. And that's why I am soon to be out of here too.
Yes, you read it correctly - sm
The platform is fairly basic.

They have made some huge improvements in it since I started editing on it but there is still some room to improve.

As with any other program, you can expect a learning curve so it's really about finding a way to make it work for you.

I have been seeing some improvement in my production (baby steps) but it would be really nice if I was at least making what I was before with just transcribing. I'm not, in case that wasn't clear.

Not to put the entire blame on the platform, I need to readjust my thinking and approach to getting my work done. It's different.

I have been very happy with Transcend for a long time. They are listening, even if sometimes they don't appear to be. It just takes a little time for them to figure out what needs to be changed in order for us (MLSs) to get our jobs done faster and easier.

Like I said, I'm trying to be patient because the last platform switch (when we went to VoiceScribe) was kind of a mess for about a year before it was really working smoothly but it turned out pretty darn good too. I still have hope for editing on this BT platform.
You do not read posts correctly
I said I was starting work around 12 and was late. No one contacted me about my not being signed in. I never sent an email and did not say I did. Maybe that is why you donít work for them anymore, reading something into things not there.
if you would read the posts correctly...sm
the *broom closet* statement was posted in the one above mine. I was just responding to hers, and I was trying to be funny about the mailorder bride thing. apparently you don't have a sense of humor either, on top of being rude.
Folks really need to read the posts correctly....
Guess some are coming out from underneath that rock again. I asked others if they had to work for Christmas. Please get things right. I work the hours I want and AM NOT WORKING CHRISTMAS by choice. Hello... do you comprehend what you read???
Oh, I read correctly. Apparently you're sm
not seeing the point - you accepted .075 cpl.  YES, I understand clinic notes.  You don't place much value on your skill apparently. 
I wish people read these posts correctly.
I am amazed that people here do not read the postings correctly and assume and go on and on about something that was not said in the first place. NEVER was the person posting about her father dying told to suck it up, NEVER. Arent we all transcriptionists and we have to listen and transcribe correctly what is heard? I am totally amazed myself that this just went on and on and it was NEVER said to the person whose father died.
Last word here - People here need to read a post correctly
I never told HER to suck it up. Why donít you read postings correctly. Can you not make a distinction between me saying I JUST SUCKED IT UP as telling about my vacation and you saying something entirely different? What is the matter with the posters here? I am outta here for the afternoon. Everyone have a good time.
never bothered me
nm
QA is great. I am not bothered
much by ICQ.  I have had no problems with them.  I have been there since the summer and am very happy there so I guess they were different a few years ago. 
I heard pay was low, so never bothered
There is some information on WAHM.com message boards about them.

Sorry I couldn't have been of more help!
which just proves further that the other companies really have NOT tried and can't be bothered. n

Depends on what bothered you 6 months ago...
I have worked for the Q for almost 9 years. I must say everything cycles with them. Something that bothered you this time last year may have changed. They continually change the way they want things done, especially when the higher-ups change. I give it another year and they will be back almost to where they were with us 2 years ago, about the time they did away with the IC positions...that flexible part time thing is dangerously close to that.
I'm more bothered by any poster who defends
xx
Sarcasm. I knew I should not have bothered to answer. nm
nm
Why have they bothered advertising or tried hiring people when they do not have enough
manpower to get it going in an efficient manner. Truly, I hope Shiela is also not the one responsible for doing payroll. That may well be too much on one person. I have worked in offices where doctors were too cheap to hire extra help and just ran us into the ground with so much work until we quit from burn out. It just not the right way to run a business, having one person do everything. I do feel for Shiela but who would want to contact her now and burden her more. BTDT
anon who is so bothered by misplaced post
Maybe you need do to something about that anxiety disorder. So someone made a mistake. Don't let it ruin your day.
I got the chapstick too. I honestly have no clue why they bothered sending anything.
nm
May not be lying.. *certain* companies never bothered to check their work.
x
If you bothered the CEO of the company, who I personally know does not care what is written here, sm
than you are taking this all way too serious. The CEO (can't use names here anymore) used to come here but does not anymore except here and there to keep up on some industry changes(her words). She does not take this stuff serious and neither should you.

What you shoud be concerned about is the fact that you felt it necessary and OK to run to the CEO of a company on a weekend for insignificant things. If she is laughing, it is probably at you. If she is upset, it is probably because it has gotten out of hand, but I bet she has bigger things to deal with than a public board with anonymous posts. Gheesh. Both sides are out of hand.
I bothered taking the test weeks ago and never heard. You would think...
they could at least say either way, hey, you did not pass the test etc... but I never even got that.  I even took someone's advise and followed up by emailing HR and asking them if they could let me know either way but I took the time to do the testing as well as I had been also testing with others and needed to know whether to keep waiting on them or move on. Obviously, I moved on. I find it totally unprofessional to ask someone to take time enough to test and then they cannot even have the common courtesy to tell you that you stink or whatever. I could handle the truth, but to never heard anything, UNPROFESSIONAL. I do wish you great luck and maybe they just only contact those who pass and let the rest of us figure it out on our own.
From someone who bothered sending a resume, I take it back. I'm shocked at the immaturity
level that is going on. There is no way I would even think of accepting a job that would have a recruiter who acts as you have on here. I'm pretty sure you burned all of your bridges. I feel for the companies who hired you to represent them. How proud they must be..NOT.. Wow..
Am I seeing correctly, already doing VR and
they are cutting your pay from an already low to a lower rate??
Around $300-$350 for both of you, if I remember correctly -
I've only been there 1-1/2 months. You have to wait 3 months before you're eligible for insurance, but your PTO they say you can use anytime. I'm so surprised how fast it adds up. I already have about $200 PTO.

Hope that helps. Good luck.
If I remember correctly, the pay is about 3-5 cpl and
they use a system I was unfamiliar with. I declined their offer.

But hey, if it suits you, go for it.
Spell correctly.
Maybe their line rate was low because you couldn't type well. It is atrocious
or get paid correctly. nm

Not paid correctly

One of the companies I have worked for for almost a year has never paid me correctly. Sometimes, it is only by a few dollars, but others, it is quite a bit. I asked them about it a few months ago and was told something like all the work you do doesn't always get over to us. I didn't really understand this, but for some reason, just blew it off at the time. Well, my last check was a little over $100 short from what the system said it should have been. When I tried to confront them about it, they won't answer my emails or the person I need to talk to is always out of the office or not able to talk. This just really makes me mad and just wanted to know if anyone else has had this problem.


Yes, CORRECTLY. Redundant.
nm
If I am understanding you correctly,
companies have no business wanting an accurate report?? There is nothing wrong with requiring 98% quality in a report. If you are a good MT, it doesn't matter how long or short the report is, it will be accurate and meet the standards for you company or facility, that is, if you want to keep a job anywhere.
If I recall correctly...
We ran out of work once while I was on that account, and they paid for no work downtime at an hourly rate.  If anyone is really interested, I would speak with the recruiter because I believe they do pay for no work available and technical downtime.
you said it correctly. In this business sm
you work when the work is there or you don't work. Its a part of the job. I never liked the weekends either but hubby and I worked around them and adjusted things so one of us was always with the kids.

Sounds like MTs now want tons of money, the 9-5 shift and nothing to enter their little world. That is great but it is not the profession. I wouldn't expect a nurse or a doctor to say they don't want to work weekends or any other medical professional so what makes us any better? If the work is there at odd hours and you work on production then you work when the work si there or don't work!
If you need benefits, you chose correctly.

In their defense, if I remember correctly, their name
was very similar to at least 1 other and possibly 2 other transcription companies.  I don't know if that was the reason for the change or not. 
Funny, I missed that one. At least she used it correctly once, LOL. nm
s
Then spell stupid correctly.
x
Wait, am I understanding you correctly? ... sm
Are you saying that the work flow is up and down like this a lot? I'm a relative newbie to the company and I was told that they always had an abundance of work. I'm a little in shock right now.
Think I could have spelled "thing" correctly.....LOL. NM

If I understand the article correctly,

the records were stolen FROM a Transcriptionist who was subcontracting, not BY a transcriptionist, probably as a result of a computer being stolen or a home break-in, although the article did not say.  It seems the only way to prevent this type of records breach would be to keep all transcriptionists in-house.  Or am I missing something? 


And she doesn't even spell her name correctly
lol
It DID have a spellchecker, but a really poor one, if I remember correctly. nm
s
You heard correctly. I quit over a month ago, sm
and can't seem to get anyone interested in getting their computer back. Does that tell you anything???? Glad I left...what a mess that place has turned into after their supposed reorganization last year!
Offshoring MT has been going on since the 1980s if I understand correctly. SM
It picked up big time in the 1990s, follow the money. It also has been done in prisons. When I first heard about that I was shocked, but it seems as nothing can shock me anymore.

I know about our tax returns being offshored, and things the above poster mentioned. I had to call a CC company the other day, and the call center was in India. I cut that CC up promptly (probably to my benefit anyway, LOL), and I know a lot of computer call centers are in India.

I wish I had an answer for all this. I know it's a global economy. We are going to have to adapt and it's scary.

As far as the AAMT or whatever it's called now, that is very disappointing. The word American shouldnt even be in their name.
Spelling correctly would help search function. nm

if I remember correctly, isn't that Spheris' India department?
Supposedly over 4000 employees, JUST for that India account, according to Advance Health Magazine...
Whatever company you work for, you should verify that it counts correctly. sm
Take the document, cut and paste it into Word, count it that way. No way I would take the word of a company or a program unless I can verify my lines.

I do not work for Keystrokes but had to give my 2 cents, whatever it's worth!
When nm guessed correctly, the moderator pulled that post too.
She guessed with a line from Romeo and Juliet without giving a name and that post was pulled too.
See last post; I didn't explain hours correctly

Nope, but if I remember correctly you have to do a physical and all that jazz wherever you are.

This was back in 2005 when Diskriter first landed the Florida hospital.  I worked there and had to actually take a three page form to my doctor to fill out.  I had to pay for my own urine drug screen and TB test administered for a local lab and provide the lab with a postage paid envelope to mail the results directly to the hospital in Florida.


I put up a fuss because I thought all that was a little much for a remote MT position, especially when you consider that I would probably never set foot inside the facility so who cared if I passed my physical and got a TB test?


I guess I could have missed a number, but thought I dialed it correctly nm
