She is very rude & nasty. That's why I turned

Posted By: sm on 2009-03-27
In Reply to: I had an interview with them sm - MT 30+ years and running

them down. One of my friends later ended up working for them & said that lady is always like that & she ended up not staying there long. I don't know how she ever gets or keeps employees with her attitude.

Now I know why other's don't post. I was trying to help. You turned nasty. sm
Not everyone is cut out to manage accounts, and not everyone knows how to deal with others effectively. This person I was talking about wants to make everyone happy on her own; there is nothing wrong with that. She is going back to straight typing by choice as she does not want to have to deal with scheduling and details. It is not for everyone. It was not meant as bad for her, I was just trying to help you.

Nasty, rude MT. Really unnecessary. nm
M.L. is the reason I turned down the job. Rude & did not
Not to be rude Shasta but didn't you just say you turned down a position from Keystrokes because
just curious...
The rude rude rude post is TRUE
My only contact with them was rude. The front office person or whomever schedules interviews is rude
This was about a year ago but I set up an interview and either I was supposed to call them or they were to call me at a certain time but I totally spaced off the time change. The lady went off on me and told me that they had no interest in me because I couldn't call on time etc. Rude. There is no way I would ever work for someone like that.
Just be rude..out and out rude so they have just cause to "fire" you.. haha..What a bunch of i
Who would want to work for incompetent people like that. Time to change your phone numbers. They are like bad stalkers.
Rude answer to a rude post. nm
3 words, rude, rude, rude....sm

the owner sends out UGLY and NASTY emails to the MTs. The communication is just a disorganized mess and they hire you as an IC, but pretty much treats you like an employee.  Emdat sucks and pretty much the accounts are not that great.  VERY hard to get your lines in Emdat platform.  They LOVE to FIRE....when in actuality.....(that is the term they use)...you cannot FIRE an IC, you can lock them out of the system and I guess that is firing, but those two words have always been a pet peeve of mine....hearing when MTs are fired as ICs....Just my opinion

Rude, rude posters
Hope you rude posters find a good fit for you.  Don't run down OSi because some of us like them.  No problems either and I have 10 years experience.  No newbies here like you say.  Love the accounts I'm on.  Hope the complainers find a good home, but if not, they will be back and on another company's case. 
It is so rude to call QA rude because YOU have
been stuck on QA hold for six months!! And the other poster above - if you are getting QA notes and they are including your supervisor, which you imply is not the norm, then YOU are the one responsible. It matters not if you've been an MT for 1 week or 30 years - if your skills are not up to par, they are not up to par. Many MTs get cleared from QA hold within hours or days at most - companies do NOT want to hold you up from producing, nor do they love to waste their $ on MTs on QA hold. You really need a reality check. And no, I am not rude! It is always, always the MTs lacking in skills who get pissed at QA - no form of feedback is acceptable to that type - even sealed with a kiss and a big bow!
Rude! Recruiter was very rude to me.
She had an attitude right off the bat.
that nasty
over the weekend.
not nasty

pointing out the contradictatory assumptions --first,  the original poster was wrong, the company is wonderful and has great communication and never deceives (or leaves out vital information regarding an account).  Then turns around and says communication must not be good, mgt doesn't know this is happening, who not go over your lead's head.  There is either great communication or there is not great communication.  The mgt should be dealing with these issues with honesty and not leaving it to MTs at home trying to help and getting all tangled up in contraindications.

.Why would a skilled MT give a company a second chance when the company obviously knew about the turmoil over the situation in the first place, and played dumb when confronted with this issue.



maybe she is - what a nasty
What was nasty that I said?
There are millions of people looking for jobs right now, not just MTs. It is almost impossible to find anything at all, let alone something that will let you settle in and feel secure. I would not quit any job (even a sucky one) before I found something else.

There was absolutely nothing nasty about what I said. I do wish OP luck and anybody else who is looking.

Chill out for crying out loud.
if this is the same CC below...you are just nasty...go away! nm
Nasty and
Wow how nasty! sm
I believe it was someone who realizes what this so called career has turned into. It is sad and I feel the same way. We are not appreciated. Worked out in the real world yes, prefer home. I feel after 14 years I am a professional, and used to make much, much more 5 years ago than today. Sound like a bunch of old housewives who feel important because we TYPE for a living. Obviously you are not in this profession or what used to be a profession. Yes, I have many talents and many hobbies and can do so many things it would make your big head spin right off your little neck. Oh I might pee myself to talk to the owner of the company yea, well I doubt it, I like ME, and my touch with greatness was meeting, greeting and talking with George Bush Sr., never once thought about peeing myself, sang with Jerry Jeff Walker on stage, never peed either.

UIMO that was the most creative post explaining the situation now that I have seen in a long time. Thanks for being a team player, NOT YOU (had to say it)!

Good I can go to bed now I have done my anon post on the board and I feel big and important. NIghty night, pleae let the bed bugs bite.

I was turned down

by TRX because I am not a member of the AKC. Disappointed.


I turned them down too
Took a job that paid more. 7.75 cpl was just way too much of a pay cut for me.
I know someone who turned them down
recently because of the low pay. I guess they sent her a contract anyway and didn't even acknowledge that she very clearly stated that she will not work for anyone for that line rate. Then they sent her an email wanting to know why she hadn't filled it out and returned it. Not the brightest bulb in the bunch??
I was turned off of them because..
I applied, immediately heard back and asked to test immediately because they were in a big hurry to fill the positions and liked my resume. I did this and then...NOTHING.. not the courtesy of even telling me I passed or didn't pass (honestly this test was so easy that I would have been shocked if I didnt pass). I even did a follow email to see what was going on and they never even acknowledged me in any shape or form. In my eyes, this is total unprofessionalism and gives me a bird's eye view how they handle their business. No thanks. I moved on.
Turned another one down...
I received another offer today of 8 cpl (from a popular MTSO), no matter the level of experience. Seriously??? So, I would be paid the same rate as a newbie, and I have 22 years of HARD-EARNED experience? I think not. I am going to keep sending in my resume and I'll keep turning them down if they remain low. I may be but a single voice, but it will be heard. They should be ashamed. I made more than 8 cpl when I first started. There's no way I'd go back to lower than that at this point in my career. I'm too good for that.
They tried but KS turned them down. sm
They were not happy when the owners turned them down, but from what I understand, they do socialize together.

The owners of KS are very open about being aggressive with growth and want to be at $50 million. With the way they grow every year, I bet it will happen sooner than later.

I am glad to work for a company that is growing. The MQ and Spheris annual reports are very scary. How can they stay in business with losing millions every year?
lets not get nasty.......
1. I am not management.
2. I have been on DocQScribe for about a year and a half.
3. I do not count the headers and footers since obviously they would not copy and paste into the Word Document. Since we don't get paid for them, why would I count them?
4. Not getting paid for headers and footers is wrong - but we are caught in this predicament - the only way to force the issue is to stop filling in the headers and footers and since I am not management and not even remotely interested in leading a revolt, I will not be the one to start this whole issue.

Sorry. I better get back to work. This board is one of the many reasons I don't meet my line count - too much internet surfing when I should be working.
I see that unless you have something nasty to say you get no replies
Rather nasty tone -- that's what they get (sm)
I've been in admin before. If you are a good enough MT, a good company would save your resume for the future, possibly contact you and let you know there is nothing presently open, or even contact you for testing. Smart recruiters don't just put valuable people on junk lists (valuable being key--I would put the Dear Sir kind of countless offshore applicants in Junk Mail in a heartbeat). That sounds more like someone with a little Napoleon complex than anything.
mean and nasty is not cool..

About typos, doesn't anyone know the difference between the usage of NO AND KNOW?

Sounds NASTY to me! ;D
That recruiter is still nasty!!! wow...sm
Dealt with her years ago when I was thinking about working for them, but when I found out i had to go to NJ, I declined....I hate flying, will not fly ever...last time I had to fly, I had to be given very strong meds to tolerate it as I slept thru most of it!!! But that recruiter was just plain RUDE!!!!!!
Nasty vs Touchy
The person YOU ATTACKED made 1 statement of fact. Now if YOU read it as nasty, isn't that YOUR issue? For goodness sake, it's not nasty to share a different opinion (stated with a simple statement as she did) especially when the opinion is truthful.

It's not nasty to disagree, it's healthy.

IMO, worse than attacks are those who constantly whine about BEING attacked when it simply didn't occur.
Why, why nasty response?
The OP was asking about the rates paid and I answered. VR can be productive. Sorry you seem to be having a bad day.
Wow, what a nasty and miserable POS
you are. Sheesh!!!
Nice not Nasty
I agree with you.  People should be nice, not nasty.  There is, of course, a difference between being bluntly honest without being nasty.  I quit a company and was bluntly honest with what I thought of them and how they might improve by treating MTs as people instead of disposable commodities.  So since I told them exactly what I thought of them, I don't mind telling anybody else.  Simply stating a fact.
I'm not being nasty. Don't know why people
don't check the archives or even attempt to read posts on the same page and continue to ask the same questions over and over.
OMG, this is really a nasty comment....
I, too, paid for rent and food when I lived at home, after I graduated from highschool. But my mother was already then a widow, so understandable and justified.
No nasty replies here, I think you have

Just a question - not nasty . . .

When someone posts about hating their company, isn't it logical to say which company?  Geesh.  My attitude is fine.  I'm just wondering about the company. 

Take a look in the mirror.  Why would you repsond to my post with such hostility?  Wow.

be glad you turned it down (sm)
The Baltimore office's "big" oncology account is MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas. To be cleared to work on the account you have to train for weeks with this PA person (not MT, no background in English, etc.) who is comma crazy and keeps changing her mind. Reminds me of OmegaWorst's QA -- people who have never properly learned grammar and syntax, provide no printed style guide, and nit-pick to death. Think the docs care whether there is or is not a comma after the last item in the series?
That's interesting! I just turned SS
The thread turned and

and drifted to another company.  It's not your fault, and it's easy to see how you could have taken it the way you did.  (As an aside, I totally understand and empathize with the late nights!!!)  

And I agree with what you said.  It is very helpful to express good experiences with a company.  However, I'm not going to do that unless I've been with a company for a minimum of 1-1/2 years.

I don't know how long you've been with FN.  I can only speak from my own experience, and I came here before as a newbie, bragging about how great a company was, only to discover months later that the negative comments I responded to were completely accurate and warranted, and now I have egg on my face.  ~LOL~

I won't ever post a positive post about a company until well after the honeymoon period, when I'm certain they're for real, even though I know how tempting it is when you think you've struck gold and found the right company, getting good line counts, making lots of money, etc., to want to share that positive experience with the world!

Sometimes I think that's part of the company's reason for the honeymoon period:  So the employees will think the company is so great, they happily and unwittingly become a PR person for the company.

I've recently been burned pretty badly by the company the above poster was referring to, so that's why I responded.  Even though she didn't mention any specific names, those of us who are employed by that company know exactly who she was talking about.

Again, I apologize for confusing the issue.  I totally believe everything you said about FN, and I'm glad you found a company that makes you want to defend it.  There's nothing better than being able to respect and trust your employer.  I hope someday I can find that kind of company, and I just might check FN, based on your comments.

I turned them down for same reason.

As they should have turned you down. Medware has
some hard accounts so even 96% is low. Most companies require 98% accuracy on testing.
I turned them down after seeing the pay scale

I did send them an email and explain that my expectations for transcribing all work types in acute care would be 10 cpl.  They start out at 6.  That's a canyon of difference!

It also bothered me that pay is based on which shift you work.  It seems to me that goes into the gray area of IRS guidelines of control for employee versus IC status.  I need to work split shifts.  Also, I am more inclined to work when there is work and if there is no work during my shift, how can I make money?  I asked if they could negotiate some of these issues with me and they stopped communicating with me.  I'm glad I went with my instinct and did find someone else who gives me the flexibility, line rate and work types I wanted.

Glad you turned them down!! More of us need to do that. NM
I turned down a job with them about 6 months ago
They only offered me a little under 8 cpl. I went with another company that paid more.
Is this the same one that turned out to be Transcend?
It's still 8 cpl. I turned down a position with
Too evasive in their answers to my questions and not willing to take the time to talk with me.
Turned it down after getting contract...sm
There were 2 objectionable sections to me. One indicated pay for QA but on further questioning, there were no specifics given on what would be considered necessary for pay or how much it would be. The other was a charge for tech support. On further questioning, they indicated why and under what circumstances, but wouldn't put it in the contract. I wouldn't sign it since those 2 items were so vague.
