Maybe it's because they post jobs and never respond to people.

Has anyone actually had them respond to a resume?

There are so many hits on the job board for jobs that I wonder if people are qualified that respond
or just send in a resume if they are not.  Would be interesting to hear from some of these companies what type of response they are getting. 
Public board. I am free to respond to any post.
If you find the original post so offensive, why did you respond at all?

Why don't you get a clue?  A good number of people enjoyed this.  If you dislike it, you can just move on to some rosy-happy-fun filled post and leave the rest of us to chuckle without being harassed. 


Thanks guys for taking the time to respond to my post. I'll go with the State job if offered.
I may do some PT/IC a couple days of the week just to keep my skills up and just in case they offer the lower rate of pay.

Gonna miss you Guys. Thanks for all your help.
They got rid of people who WERE doing their jobs too.
I was there and had a lot of friends there. My QA lead was let go. Several of the MTs I mentored were let go. Some of the other QA were let go.
At least they seem to be happy with their jobs, which is more than i can say for most of the people
If HL people know they are going to be losing their jobs, why are they still doing work for them?
Is it getting harder for anyone to get jobs now with all the people applying for them. How does
this seem to be going for most MTs looking for jobs.  What seems to be the one factor that gets MTs a job before all the other 100 or so looking for the same job and what are the most desired qualities today that companies are looking for.
Forever, people had 2 jobs, not just MTs. And great
This is what i mean by you pilot your life, your life shouldnt just be floating you thru life.  Over the course of about 2 years, I have made conscious effort to make my life work for me. Figured out what platforms I like, what type accts.  What kind of equipment works best for me, how to efficiently handle docs and files.  In word based platform, I am Speedy Gonzales as far as how I get in and out, how I process docs. Still spend same amount of time on actual edit and type, those you can only do so fast and be correct but all other aspects, I am fast. You find your fit, which is not a one size fits all.  But, working 2 jobs is not the territory of onlyl the MT world. My dad did it while my mom also worked as RN. 
In all fairness, the American people need jobs.
This post and the post about your as successful as you allow yourself to be (with near 10% unemployment, 15% unemployment in my town) should be read with a grain of salt.

American businesses are in it for profit, no secret there. But lets not feel guilty about them sending us into the unemployment line and critizing their decisions is just nonsense.

The poster is trying to make us feel happy for MDI and bad for us for not having a parade with balloons for the decision. ::eye roll::

Canada has added jobs and when I read this along with Canada's leadership not allowing the country to become a patsy to predator lending, and this is what you should be saying about your country and not do what you have to do business community - I'll be fine without a job. lol
I think people will try it and just wont be able to do it with other jobs and family things. nm
I wish people would just stop applying for these low paying jobs!
That would force them to pay better or do it themselves. When I did QA for 3 years I was paid $20 an hour in addition to a line rate of 4 cents a line. I often ended up typing part of the report because there were so many errors. I would never work for 3 cents a line doing anything! Just my 2 cents...
Any service that offshores has US QA people. We're the ones stupid enough to take these jobs
and clean up their mess!
Awesome, it's so nice to hear from people who like their jobs and are positive.nm
Only jobs post on Job board!! nm
only jobs post on job board
I was asking a question about a company on the company board and it completely disappeared. It's not on the job board or man board...I just replied to my own post to ask the question again though.
MTSOs must post their own jobs
not all companies post jobs here -

why bother being so rude.

Hardly any jobs out there post the salary.

I don't think it matters if it's transcription or what.  I can't imagine testing for a company before calling them and flat out asking what the pay rate is for the position being offered.  What a total waste of time for both the company and the applicant. 

...and I personally do not think it is inappropriate to laugh at a ridiculous rate and slam down the phone either.  I think the asshats out there who are offering a nickel a line need to get laughed at and rudely hung up on to boot.  None of this PC politeness garbage of thanking them for their time either if they pull a number like that out of their hineys.  A man sure as heck wouldn't stand for that kind of pud pullin'...why should we?!  

Wonder why these companies post jobs

with low line rates but requiring years of experience.  Who out there is desperate enough to fall for this?  Maybe they should try an overseas job board somewhere.

How do people cherry pick on accounts? You mean like supervisors assigning jobs?
I did not know you could do that, but is that what you mean? I need to know because I will not work for that.
why is OSI allowed to post jobs on this site??? SM
It is on their website that they have an offshore office in the Phillipines. 
You are not supposed to post jobs on the job board
Again...you are not to post jobs on the job board unless you work in the capacity to recruit.
Don't know who this is but they only post jobs to stay legal..

I know exactly how it works, don't bother applying you will be wasting your time.

Did you read XO post? She said 23 jobs posted in 1
This site USED to post in house hospital jobs - sm
And this is just MY opinion, but I think what probably happened is that the hospitals were probably getting bombarded with every MTSO service contacting them, and individuals contacting them about outsourcing their work, and it probably became too much for them. An acquaitance mentioned one time that she had advertised on this board for on site and specified that it was on site, along with very specific job specifications, and apparently it didn't matter - everybody and their brother applied for the job, including waitresses and nannies who had never even had one iota of medical terminology, let alone job experience.

That's just my 2 cents
You missed my point in jobs knockin post and the
you want.  If you like MTSO you are with now, get more work from there.  If not go after what you want with different MTSO, different job, whatever.  Whats the big deal with askin for more work with MTSO you are with, if you like them.  No different that asking to work for (by applying to) any other MTSO. A real pro knows to get proactive and steer you life in the direction you want it to go.
To Moderator: Is Seroesh Saleem Akhtar allowed to post on the jobs board?

People post "I went to XX cause everyone says how
Maybe post your resume to let people
Other person needs a massage!
As of now, 275 people have read the post!
I think the title of post set people off...
tell your ex-coworker: no, you do not know of anyone hiring; if she asks again, tell her the same thing. Be thankful she did not ask to use you for a reference; then you have a problem.
sorry, post should be under 'all MDI people and no...)
You do realize that probably 90% of the people who post
on here and read on here probably just applied to your company that you're talking about! It's nice to know that there are still good companies out there. It gives me a little glimmer of light in my oh so dark tunnel that I've been stuck in lately.
I actually know a couple of the happy people who post...sm

I actually know a couple of the people who regularly post positively on this board about Transcend. I email with them quite regularly. They aren't management. There's one theory down the drain.

And, no, I'm not management trying to create a story, either, although you probably suspect that I am.

Try to accept that people can be happy and supportive of their employer. It's better to be part of the solution than part of the problem.




I don't think that is the fault of the MQ people. Anyone is free to post about anything at any ti
This is why people do not like to post here. I am not an OFFICIAL recruiter but sm
like to refer KS to others as I am so happy there. I was not aware that using the title was misrepresentation. It really does not matter. I am not going to waste any more time here. It gets very time-consuming and I am tired of feeling attacked if I post anything at all.
Well, yes. But my point is the OP said wanted people to post

positive experiences with Focus.  I've seen other posts like this where a person will ask about a specific MTSO and say something like just good things or no negative posts please.

It just strikes me as looking at the world through rose colored glasses.  How can you make an informed decision if you only consider one side of an argument?  It's just silly.  Why bother to ask any questions at all?  Just take the job and be done with it.  People take time to answer questions honestly here and try to help out fellow MTs so they don't make the same mistakes we've made and what thanks do we get? 

Pollyannas like the OP who just wants to hear the good. 

This post is true. Pay attention people. nm
People post that info all the time.
Hey, GP, some people post libelous information

about companies. I hope it's not you being sued. I don't know if you ever worked for TT or not but  I've seen some of the outrageous things stated against TT and I just don't know if I would believe some of those posts. I think they may be disgruntled employees taking out their hatred on a company that, until a few months ago, had great reviews. Then someone posted a nasty comment about them and it's been going downhill since then.

This board is for comments on companies, but not some of the nastiness I've seen against TT lately so, again, I say, it all started with one disgruntled employee and snowballed from there. If they are suing someone, they must have a good reason, don't you think?


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.
I remember your post several weeks ago..Hopefully, you still arent working for these people. I'm
sure they have been paid by their client. Why do they think they can rip people off. You need to post their name so that noone else bothers with them. Oh yeah, I think I remember now..It was someone named Joanna who asked for overflow help on podiatry, right? I am ashamed to admit that I submitted my resume. Luckily, she never called or I would be doing what your doing..Nightmare..
good guesses, but none of what you stated in your post....i rest my case though, you people
ARE TRULY NASTY.......nothing short of a JERRY SPRING remake here....i simply said that SoftScript was wonderful and so far, i've been told i'm a joke, insulted, called names, etc.......now lets see if anyone has anything nice to say......as if that were possible on this board.............
Cherrypicking is when you work from a pool of jobs and being able to reject the worst jobs to those
Monster Jobs and Career Builder usually have a few path jobs. nm
Don't think any do except for those in-house jobs. Some QA jobs are paid hourly. nm
They didn't take our jobs, QT gave them our jobs. The account is now
back in the hands of US MTs, or will be in just a couple of weeks.  
could you respond here for
I wish you would respond....I do.
But if it is only me, well that definitely won't do any good. We all have to stick together and let them know that it is an insult to be treated like non-*professionals*. If more people let them know they'd at least be forced to think about it instead of deleting a lonely email from one angry MT. I am beginning to think they continue to take away from us because most MTs can't be bothered and and/or will take it. ;)
Not only do they not respond....
but then every couple of months they are advertising again.  Do you think it is a vanity thing, or they are trying to  create a reputation for being busier than they are?  I don't understand why a business would waste time unnecessarily in this process, unless of course they are disorganized and discourteous, in which case they have a lot of turnover, which no business wants.
