In Reply to: Why is it that when anyone has anything good to say about a company, there are always the posts sm - KS Lead MT
when the owner or the KS Lead MT posts rebuttles and tries to defend her company. You and she know full well things were not well with that company for a long time. Sounds like things are turning around but posts like yours only demean..methinks thou doth protest too much Let your reputation be built on happy employees, the sour grapes might be unhappy employees, former employees, people gossiping about what was heard, etc. Do you see ANY other MT company coming here and defending itself? No..I don't either. Think about it. Keystrokes reputation preceeds itself..it will take time for that reputation to be restored.

Does FutureNet give annual raises or any type of raises? nm
Wonder if those support in the office get any raises. We are paying their raises, huh?
you know they ARE getting raises!
What red flags? What company? I must be
Uh, lots of red flags here. I'd be looking elsewhere.
Never know it from the website, red flags all over
just curious but with all the red flags
what in the world led you to taking a job with them? You listed 11, but more than 1 would be enough to make someone think, there's something wrong here.
WOW, too many red flags it is very "telling" NOPE
Thanks for sharing. Obviously says how it would go after being hired and starting. You can just tell-lll. Similar happened to me with another company, avaalable waiting at PC to get installed, day after day, no followup, went on for almost 2 weeks, I finally just emailed said it did not seem to be happening and to have tech support get my PC back to original.
They have no regard for YOUR TIME at all.
That's not just unprofessional.... sm
it's illegal ! I would forward those emails with a letter of explanation to the Department of Labor. You'll see how fast SS changes their tune. And by the way, if they know who you are by your posts, then the companies and the administrators of this forum are obviously on the same back-stabbing team. Bet this gets deleted before you can say "shove it" !!
If your oversea MTs are that great, why bother with us Americans? If I worked for your company, I would quit yesterday.
This is very unprofessional. Imagine If we all knew what hospital you were referring to? This is confidential information and should be kept such, not even funny.
Perhaps the term suck is unprofessional. However, since you are not with FN, perhaps never have been and never will be, I reiterate that I personally never confirmed anything about work or no work. What I said had you read it closely is that as per many companies throughout the US, there are periods of a lull. I never said there was no work and you are quoting out of context. If you seem to have a problem with FN why don't you just go to the source instead of using a public forum to confirm unwarranted comments from others about something they no nothing about.
It's just totally unprofessional for either MT or management...and totally uncalled it.
I think it would be really unprofessional
I think it would be really unprofessional and immature on the part of the company who is sending it around...if they do exist. I also wouldn't want to work for a company who participated in that drama either, either blacklisting people or not hiring people because of it. There are always two sides to each story. It's not fair to not hear the other side or to not give that MT a shot because of what a disgruntled employer has to say.
If I were doing the hiring, I would start questioning the credibility of that company and actually probably see why the MT left/quit/got fired in the first place. It is up to the MT to prove him/herself and if it doesn't work out, well then fire him/her.
I have no doubt that it goes on, especially with smaller/medium MTSOs who are friends. That's just my opinion, though. I know some companies I had worked for had no issue complaining to me about their own transcriptionists incessantly, personal and private matters included, so I have no doubt they ran their mouth to other people in the industry about them. Made me paranoid/wonder what they said about me.
Unprofessional and Same As Before
Recruiter was unprofessional (um, um, um, let me check, um, um...). Told the recruiter that I worked for them 5 years ago and had a horrible experience, rude QA, rude team leaders, inaccurate QA (grade wrong and when pointed out the account specifics, they get very rude), 99% ESL doctors on all accounts. He said they were still the same with the 95% to 99% ESL dictators and didn't know about the rest of the staff problems. Pay was on time, but never received anything worth cashing at the bank due to lousy dictators. If you ask for another account with more American-speaking doctors, they said that all the accounts had the same type of doctors, and they did. I got put on 4 different accounts and had plenty of work but unable to translate the dictation. I personally think that they only get the accounts that other transcription services REFUSE to do. There are a lot of companies out there that have better dictators and more professional/knowledgeable recruitors and more knowledgeable, friendlier and team-oriented QA and team leaders, so please don't waste your time with the same nightmare as 5 years ago.
This company is very, very unprofessional. They expect a new hire to know what each doctors wants within a 24 hour period of time. They EXPECT that. They are also very rude in conversations. Just beware.
very unprofessional and rude (sm)
and I was able to find much better work for myself, at Proscript.
I don't think I've seen anyone more unprofessional here
than this person. I pity anyone that works for her.
Unprofessional and ridiculous! sm
Unless it is done in conjunction with a real test.
Extremely unprofessional nm
Are you a member of management?
It was just as unprofessional of the poster--sm
above to have asked who had been contacted by this company. The person who requested resumes to be sent has been harassed for the past three days trying to find out a name of the company. I guess she has had enough and I don't blame her. They probably weren't real names anyway. Sheesh!
If you are an MTSO, you are really unprofessional
Very unprofessional, they are not honest, some of their
accounts are horrendous, they offshore but don't want you to know that.
That is extremely unprofessional...sm
It's also very direspectful to one of us. We are all a family of MTs here, so I take this personally!! I think you should post this up top as a separate post so everybody can see it better. They need to know about this company's baby fits if they don't get their way. They wouldn't be making any money if it wasn't for us!!!
Oh brother, how unprofessional are they?
Ask to speak to the QA supervisor and collect all the e-mails you are getting with conflicting ways to nit-pick. Show her the e-mails and tell her you are confused. You would be happy to do what they want, but you are being pulled in different directions. If she is not accommodating, look for another job. Who needs that grief?
I find this all very unprofessional.
start a yahoo group? That would be better than how you are reflecting yourself here. You are showing you're true colors. It is quite obvious you are frequenting this board.
Your pay rate is very low. Your demands are high, and you are not showing anything here but how unprofessional and NOT BUSY you are!
Please save it! You have obviously burned some MTs, and they are not getting past it! So, why do you continue to post? You are like stirring the pot! Your original post was enough. Really it was....
P/S: No, I am not an ex-disgruntled IC (really should be employee) with the demands you have on there.
Then, you have the nerve to respond to someone asking about line rates that you charge anywhere from 9 on up, yet your starting rate is 8 for 2nd shift, but you claim you cannot afford to pay more. Shady!
Rolling eyes is quite unprofessional, IMO. sm
Get over it disgruntled. My goodness, did they expect you to do horrible things like to work 8 hours a day and meet minimums? Shame on them for expecting such of a Primadonna.
Precisely. We have had some very unprofessional people sm
and some who turn their editing back in unedited. I will not say the name of the company because I am not a recruiter, just someone who thought I'd help get resumes for the positions. At last count, apparently some people cannot read and we keep getting resumes, the resume count is 179.
Its not Shapin. It is a small midwestern company located in middle America, Illinois.
You can nag all you want, but I have no say in hiring, nor do I have any say in firing.
If you want, I'll list the names of all the people who applied and then you can see who you can contact to see if you know any of them?
I read it. Very unprofessional and childish
but he/she can be that way because he/she did not name the company, which again is very unprofessional and shows that someone has something to hide.
You just took the prize for being unprofessional my dear.
A professional would never take such a minor issue and blurb it on a chat page. A professional would have approached the maker of the typo or would have just looked past it. Pretty sad when you have to stroke your own ego over a typo.
I don't hesitate to ask. Have been told "yes", and have been told "no." Never been to
Using people's names is really against the rules and you should not do so. It is unprofessional.
do you? Why do you think it is right to name a person and then slam their name. If you think this is right, then tell me why? It is not right and it should not be allowed.
lousy mgmt/response, unprofessional.
Shapin...unprofessional, disorganized, let go without any warnings at all.
I wouldn't recommend them to my worst enemy!
You may never - seems this is common from this company - how unprofessional & rude
I'm thinking..unprofessional. First impressions are everything and my impression is....
I wouldn't want to work for someone like that. There would probably never be any way to ever please her. I mean how many of us at one point in our careers thought we were doing a great job only to have a supervisor or someone else tell us our work stinks..It's obviously subjective versus objective opinion. I just think her ad had a very unprofessional and rude tone to it and I am guessing that she has been burned or thinks she has. I just don't think you'd want to portray your attitude upon potential new hires. I will say...the ad did make me laugh, but there is a time and place for jokes and posting as a job ad isn't where you'd want to make people either offended or laugh at you.
The owner is an unprofessional mental case.
I worked for them years ago. Supposed to be PT to supplement my FT job. Got way too much work (I know with low work flow these days, I shouldn't complain). I sent a very professional and very friendly email stating that I considered PT to be less than 1000 lines a day and that she was sending me too much work. She went crazy waying I was flaming her via email and then called my home phone and left a nasty message calling me a liar and that I should never expect to work for them EVER again.
I knew someone else who worked for Accupro as well. She gave two weeks notice when she resigned and said she would ship the equipment back to the owner after her two weeks. She lived locally to where Accupro's owner lived and the next day the owner showed up at her home, banging on the door demanding her equipment, and told my friend what a fool she was to have quit.
Finally, I had a friend who worked for a hospital that Accupro contracted with to do overflow. The owner was constantly behaving unprofessionally, calling the supervisor demanding to know why they didn't have much work, refusing to accept that the department was simply caught up. When she was reminded that Accupro was contracted to do overflow only, she would attempt to go over the MT supervisor's head. And then would play games with workflow - not returning work to the facility purposely for days at a time.
The woman shouldn't not be a business owner. She is totally unprofessional and feels she owns her ICs, but won't make them employees and got help you if you decide to move on. She becomes vengeful and downright scary!
Okay, this is turning ugly. These kind of comments are unprofessional
If you here work for the company you could be earning money by taking TT up on the big BONUSES this weekend that nobody has mentioned while griping about the headers, etc. um er, how about telling the world that lines and a half are being offered and an extra 50 to 100 in addition. So, why not just put your ugly comments away and get to work!
One word for them..UNPROFESSIONAL. I applied and immediately tested
as they were in a big hurry to have someone hired so I dropped everything, tested, and then NOTHING.. I emailed numerous times asking if they had received my test but they could not even respond to that. The testing was easy and so I just could never figure out why they could not at least say they hired someone else or whatever the reason. I just find them extremely unprofessional (initials KB) if I remember right. I would never work for someone so unorganized anyway.
Wow..you even tested...hmmm. All that shows to me is unprofessional and disorganization.
As much as I hate to get the Dear John, we didn't select you emails, I would rather hear something than nothing. I can handle that kind of rejection but when I waste my time applying, and then they do not even have the common courtesy to respond back on any level. That truly just shows me that I would not work for a company like that. It just gives you a little preview of how they do business.
As a MTSO, why would he/she feel the need to come to a public board and complain? Unprofessional in
Even so, it is very unprofessional and rude to not reply back when someone took the time to test!!
A typo does not make it unprofessional. Perfect doesn't exist.
We all do our best, but typos will happen from time to time. Won't matter tomorrow and certainly won't matter next year.
Any manager worth a grain of salt wouldn't even reply here. How unprofessional.
best way to get a raise with MQ is to ask for it and keep asking. I don't know why they don't give "across the board" raises. The thing I have heard in the past is type more to make more. I say learn every work type you can and make yourself indispensable!
raises with MQ
would you mind telling which office that is? used to be in Houston and it closed down and now in Dallas. you had to ask for a yearly review. they didn't volunteer that info unless you asked. first time when i asked for a yearly review they got around to it 6 months later. gave me all kinds of BS why I didn't qualify for a raise. i asked for a yearly review this year and i was told that i sent over 20% to QA. all i have to say is that you were extremely lucky. are you SE or FT?
Who says ICs can get raises. You obviously
work at a small company to brag like you do. I just hate it when someone like you comes here and tells people that they can earn like you do only it takes a while. Well guess what I am not new to this. However, I don't have stable accounts. I did have but the company puts whomever they want on them and dole the work out. You can't get ahead. I was doing fine finally until they put another greedy MT on that account and now my good account and the one I depended upon for most of my earnings is now hardly anything. I resent this. Accounts are not yours. They belong to the company. Yet, you say you have stable accounts? My God. You are unreal.
Go peddle your lies to someone else.
I don't think any of us TT employees want to say what we make. Every account is different. It really is nobody else's business what each of us makes. TT is very fair and we do get rewarded for good work. Didn't you used to work for us at one point, Olive Oyl? If you did, then you should already know that we are the best in the industry.
You should probably ask Transtech this question directly, Olive Oyl. The reason the rest of us don't tell you what we make is because it is confidential to each of us. It really doesn't matter to me what anyone else makes, because I'm very happy here. Transtech is about SO much more than cpl. I don't think you're going to get the answers you want from any of us TT employees, which is why I suggest you make a list of all your questions and ask Transtech yourself. :)
What companies have you or do you currently work for? Every company I talked to that does pay wages said there would be no raise in the future. If you want to email me . . . . . . I honestly don't want to fritter away my time and energy. I have worked very hard to get to where I am (as you know this is not an easy job to do) and am proud of the work I produce but I will not work for a few pennies. Perhaps I am wanting what will never happen.
How are they with giving raises, is there any set protocol, or like MQ whenever they felt like it (never)?
WHO gives raises?? ;)
I've never heard of an MT company giving raises. Please advise if I'm wrong. Whenever I wanted a raise (at any company over the last 18 years) I worked more. My arms and hands are now shot, so I have to make do with what I have, no matter how big the incoming bills are.
LOL! Just had to comment. It was a funny question to me. :)
