No I am not a troll, but I did find a job. Good for me

In Reply to: My skills are gone. I am a Diskriter employee - My skills are gone. HELP Diskrier employee

I found a job as a medical secretary and that is good enough for me right now. It is not the best situation, but I will get some SUM tapes and practice. Thanks for the advise.

Ha, ha. I love it. Troll alert! Good one. nm
Good plan. You know they troll these boards, so
Everytime you say something good about a company, they call you a troll - (sm)
Who's the idiot?
Why must the person be a troll? Before its over with I guess you will be a troll also.
Good luck wherever you go...hopefully you find the right fit for you...
Let us know if you find it!! Good luck...nm
Why test to find out their pay is not good?
The recruiter should answer the question regarding pay before wasting time on testing.  JMO.
Good luck!. When you find the company, let us know. sm
I'm in the same boat. 
I have been looking and hope to find a good 'home' soon! NM
i didn't find the communication to be good
well, it was as long as i said everything was rosey. Soon as things weren't so perfect, they became much less than friendly.
Does anyone know anything (good or bad) about DTS America? Haven't been able to find anything at

Find another job immediately - Not a good situation. Been there, done that. nm
That's about as good as you're going to find .. grab it (nm)
Good company, for sure. Find one where you're SM
consistently safe from overhiring--and then come back and give all the rest of us the name. In the meantime, for me at Webmedx most days have plenty of work, although some days require adjusting my schedule during the day to the work flow.

You know, evolving electronic capabilities and patient needs have now led hospitals--our employers' clients--to expect the very quick turnaround needed. Years past have taught home MTs we can work when it suits us. Is it any wonder that MTSOs are currently doing their best to deal with these realities by overhiring when needed? Webmedx is trying to stabilize this situation to everyone's benefit--economic at least for us--by pushing its MTs to meet our commitment of hours per week while still allowing some flexibility.

I'm MsIndigo and I approved this ad. :) Best wishes whereever you land.

Do you find that you are able to earn a good income with them?
Do you have ample work, or do you often have to resort to MT work to fill the time?
Anyone find Oracle to be a good company?
I was just referred to Oracle Transcription Services.  Is this a good place to consider switching to as an IC, as this is all they hire.   The flexible schedule of an IC definitely appeals to me.
Anyone find a good home at Softscript?
Any feedback appreciated.
Good - Find someone else to spew your venom at
You must really have a heart on for LandMark the way you jumped all over MY post when there are a few posts in this thread that said the same thing I did about companies going to VR. I said NOTHING NEGATIVE about LandMark.

You're obviously someone with a shell of a life who has nothing better to do than LOOK for reasons to start internet squabbles to make yourself feel superior in that delusional little world you've carved out for yourself, probably eating en and Jerry's by the quart and rarely seeing the light of day.

I feel sorry for you.

Do yourself a favor and step away from keyboard and get some sunlight on occasion. Perhaps you're lacking in vitamin D.
Gee, I tried real hard to find those good posts,

but all I could find, in addition to the other complaints already listed, were complaints about being in the "middle of an 11-minute job when it was pulled and given to someone else," "There has to be a better way NOT to make a living," "I know I am going to end up on food stamps," complaints of no compensation for down time and BTXT being down and MTs not being notified.

If there were one or two positive comments about it on there somewhere, they are certainly overshadowed by all the justified negativity, outrage and frustration that's there.

I wouldn't wish this company on my worst enemy, and you should be ashamed of yourself if you recommend that anyone apply there for employment these days.  It used to be a good company, and like the song says, "Used-to-be's don't count any more."  Although I don't expect them to "bring me flowers" I do expect to be able to earn a living wage, and those days are quickly disappearing.

Make your own nest. Find a couple of good
accounts, multiple companies if you have to. Work on them every day just to stay on top of it. I used to bend over backwards to try to help where needed, but all I ever got was kicked in the head, so now I just do my routine. When they start appreciating people, (and not just an occasional 'oh how wonderful you are' when they are backlogged and know you can do a lot of work), by some type of recognition like a raise or promotion, then you can go back to being the nice guy.
Good MT hard to find & 1 familiar with platform is
Does anyone that is currently or had worked for DSG find it rather difficult to get a good line
count for some reason.
Question for anyone currently with DSG. Do you find it is difficult to get good lines there.
I started recently and seem to find it rather difficult to get a good line count for some reason.  Help appreciated.
Unlike the poster below, I did not find the ESLs good dictators at FN. sm
In fact, in my over 20 years of experience, they were the worst I have ever heard.  We got way more than 3 e-mails a day, too.  More like 10 to 15, beginning for help and sometimes bordering on threatening. If you are really good with ESLs, you MIGHT do okay. But who wants to put up with that?!?  No bennies either.  Glad I am long long gone.  The grass really is greener.
I think you would be doing good to find a reputable company, much less by putting qualifiers
How many accts did you experience in 3 days? Been there for a few months and so far so good. I find
but compared to where I was the lines sure do add up, and I absolutely love my acct, supervisor, tech people and QA! All have been great!!
I completely concur. Find a good one, or move on, quickly. No loyalty involved. The don't sm
have any to the MTS.  NONE of them.
Obviously a troll!
First, if you were fired from Spheris, you just aren't too good!  From your post, I can understand why you were fired.  Learn to spell!  I wouldn't go around telling everyone how you were fired either!  Most people aren't proud of that fact.  Your post makes NO sense.  You are jealous because an Andrews graduate received better training and therefore can get a better job.  DUH.  Try another line of work!
I'm not a TROLL
My post sounded very rude and I apologize.  Maybe I'm having a bad day or PMSing...who knows? 
Do you look like a troll??
Dont insult the trolls.
oh lawdy - one troll after another, eh? NM *lol*
This person is a troll. (SM)
Probably a very disgruntled ex-employee. Probably have been banned at some point from this forum for unacceptable posting.

Do not pay any attention to their posts. I am leaving them here so the Administrator can see them first.

Trust me, even with their anonymizers, their ISPs can still be traced and they can be reported to anonymizers for abuse as well.
Ignore the troll.
You are obviously a troll with a vendetta.
Too bad you don't have something better to do than come on here and cause problems.

please do not call her a troll - there is no need for that. the QA
part is the truth. There is a severe lack of QA at Diskriter. I just type my lines with or without blanks and just send them through because I was tired of the nasty emails I was getting from my supervisor about my blanks. That's all I will say because I do not know who reads this board
Can you say "management troll"???
Have you ever heard of a TROLL?

Yes, only a troll masquerading as an MT
would defend cherry-pickers and just say ignore them while looking the other day. REAL MTs would get mad and do something about cherry-pickers, not accuse MTs who disagree wtih it as being kids fighting over candy
you know I think you are the real troll sm
on here. I posted that I DO NOT own an MTSO but now I am a know-it-all and say things over and over. What the heck does that have to do with a post addressing the accusation that I am an MTSO owner. I work for a MTSO just like the rest of you. I happen to like my job, do well etc. etc.

You are nothing but a whiner and complainer that doesn't need to be in this business at all.

I hope one of these days this business DOES go back to where it was where you ahve to work your butt off to get experience with ESLs and everything else. The job is weekends, holidays, whenever the work is there is you want to work from home for an MTSO! If not go into a hospital and work int he MR department.. You will still have to work weekends and holidays.

Shut up or get out!
An obvious troll
put this clown who laughs at other's misery on *ignore.* Let LMAO entertain/babysit him/herself.
why don't you grow up and get a life you troll
whoa - that just may be a troll post.....sm

as I know it, the MT work coming out of India is sent to 3 doctors in India who sit in a room and proofread ALL India-MT work........saw a program on cable TV.....and this work is proofed before it comes back to the US.....

I don't think this is a true manager, just a troll.
Look on an urban dictionary. Its right by troll,
I call TROLL on the defensive
so-called MT who defends cherry-picking.
Agree - Some troll trying to stir the pot
Must be having a very boring Easter and trying to seek stimulation on the board. *EYE ROLL*
That person was a troll. Just trying to stir things up. 12 cpl or
Yeah you troll. Get back under the bridge.
It's called a troll. Statements without backup. sm
There is a lot of work out there with Keystrokes and others. MQ is losing accounts, and the other MTSOs are getting them. I am sure that they want to see quality and limit volume the first few days. I would if it were my company.
well, haven't heard the word troll since...
