So is Warminster. Pity some but not all there. They never worked for the MT at all.

The Warminster office is now part of the NE Region. Unsure if Warminster will be
staying open. All the accounts have been switched to Amherst, NY. Hard to know who to deal with since the office manager has not been replaced so not the best.
I have compassion, which is different from pity. Pity
pity party
Bummer. I sent my resume to KS and filled out the email questionnaire. They confirmed they received it. It's been over 2 weeks and nothing. I've got the experience and talent, but I guess I just have bad timing. I was really looking forward to moving on and they were my first choice. Oh well - c'est LA vie. I just wanted to feel sorry for myself for a while. Thanks friends, for letting me whine.
Oh for pity's sake
There are tons of companies out there not on the board at all - I know because I work for two of them and never see anything negative at all about them. Did it occur to you the one's you see here over and over probably deserve much of the criticism?

No pity party here
Thanks. You wouldn't know this and I'm sure you don't give two hoots, but, yes, I absolutely did start looking as soon as I realized I was in trouble, as you put it.

You don't know anything about it, and, honestly, I've had it with your posts. I won't say you're mean, because you seem to actually like being called mean. So I won't say that, don't want to give you the satisfaction.

I just think it's time for you to shut the pie hole now.

Karma is a complete and total you-know-what, and you've more than earned your share of it coming right back to you just by posting the kinds of things you have to me and other posters.

So when that special time comes for you, you'll get the emotional support you need here, undoubtedly, because that's how the REST of us are here. But keep in mind, there just may be a few who haven't walked in your shoes yet who will say the same things to you that you have to others.

Just remember that what goes around, comes around, and you've certainly earned your comeuppance....some day, some how, somewhere.

Maybe it won't have anything to do with MT, who knows, but whatever it is, baby, you've sure earned it....

I have no pity. Try being a single mom with two little kids!
Who said the OP wanted a pity party?
I don't see anyone asking for a pity party. I make way more
Leave the OP alone. She's only venting. You've said your peace, she posted an update, so why do you keep posting over and over the same insulting, degrading posts to her? Sheesh, what a sad, sorry, cranky, miserable person you appear to be!

To the OP, good luck to you! :)
You wanted attention and a pity party.

You got it from the other posters, but I'm the bully.  Okay....  I'm being called grinch and bully, but I'm not the nasty one here????

Some people just don't want to be helped, they want a handout! 

I'm Warminster - I guess I'm not sure what your question is.....are you talking about IMail?
Was told no - but I think it's really that the office people were told no so they don't all jump ship just yet!
Sorry, this is Warminster MQ I am speaking about.
Warminster PA MQ office sm
Can anyone tell me anything about this office? I am still debating on whether to turn in paperwork or not.
What can you tell me about the Warminster MQ office?
The good, the bad, and the ugly are all appreciated. Thank you very much.

Was Warminster, God knows who we work for now nm

They were pulled into Warminster and some may now be in New York.
Warminster closing probably end of year.
I am also from Warminster. Guess I know why we are all looking. Thanks for the info. Nice to know
what is going on in Warminster because no one there will tell you.
Any Warminster MTs have any thoughts on the email about getting switched to the NE region. Just
wonder what you think about the whole thing.
Unfortunately I have to agree about Warminster. I am not even sure it is stay open at this point in
time. It seems very uncertain the way things are going and I have also heard that the accounts will be going to New York Amherst.  
I also work for Warminster. Thinking of trying to transfer out. It is now the NE and yes multiple
accounts all the time. Warminster has always done this and I hear the same for the NE so may be time to look at other MQ offices.
Warminster office is about ready to close its doors. Our accounts unfortunately went to Amherst. I
understand they are going to have a national system not regional where when there is a hospital that needs help people out of work get work in it. I would rather have a main account or a few I know so I am not sure about this new deal. Maybe they are going in with Spheris.
I worked for a temp agency for 3 years..LOVED it. Just worked. No counts, no hassels, GREAT pay..
No benefits at the time.  I even learned pathology while temping (8 months on that assigment).  I loved the variety, the ability to say I'm not available such and such time.  I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I didn't need benefits.
A company is ONLY supposed to verify that someone worked there, what dates they worked, whether PT o
and last date worked. It opens everyone up to a lawsuit if more is given, so most companies are told by their attorneys and business advisors to verify only.

No one has a right to a reference, only verification of employment.
It worked! Latest suggestion from DJ's email worked. nm
If I worked a longer day, I just put my regular shift, 3p-11p, or whatever. If I worked sm
an extra day, then I was told to fudge the hours around on the other days so it all came out to 40.  I didn't really mind -- have learned not to expect overtime in this profession -- and I was happy to be able to work whenever I needed to get the lines I needed.  However, them telling me directly to fudge on my time sheet would seem to be a violation of the wage and hour laws.  I suppose it doesn't matter now if they do not even have enough work to make the minimum line count necessary.  Several of the companies I thought were golden seem to have gotten a bit tarnished lately sad. 
Glad it worked for you. I have worked for companies
that were more reliable and paid without the delay I had. Maybe you started before they started doing that but it makes no difference. I TOO am a single parent.

You are not trying to argue? Sounds like you not only are trying to argue but you are just waiting for anyone to post anything about the co on here so you can just get out there and respond, which seems to be the way I have always noticed it. It's like all the MTs or whoever that work there are just waiting to respond.

This board is about the good points and bad points about companies. I am telling my experience.

The people were nice people though, but my experience was not a good one and I will not say it was.

I can go a week after the end of payday and even 10days later but that's it. Kids would starve.
Best company I have ever worked for, and I have worked for a lot!
I can't believe some of the things these people say here, and have to wonder if it just the same person or two bashing. I have been at MDI for four years and I do not have a low workload and I get treated very, very well.
They one I am not sure of. I have always worked FT for them. I have worked both IC and employee
and I always did way over 12,000 a pay peroid. I am sure they are pretty comparative to other companies. You definitely could contact a recruiter by applying if they would answer all of your questions up front. Good luck.
Worked for both
They both have their pros and cons. MedQuist is poor at communicating with their staff. Keep you in the dark, but they leave you alone and let you work. Spheris, on the other hand micromanages every minute of your time. If you stop to go to the bathroom without signing out, your phone will be ringing within 5 minutes with your supervisor wanting to know where you are. They are much better at communicating and support, though. You just have to pick your poison.

I worked for both MQ and S.
MQ SUCKS!!!!  Spheris has better training, no rental fees on equipment, management and trainers who actually know what they're doing, a decent platform, and better pay.  Those jerks at MQ threatened via $30 Fed Ex envelope to sue me for the equipment I had already mailed back to them, and I had proof of it with UPS tracking confirmation.  And no, I never got fired from there.  Besides all that, S isn't involved in any lawsuits and hasn't been delisted from NASDAQ like MQ has.
When I worked at MQ
Their "clinic work" was from Emory University and very, very difficult. It was in their clinics that they did drug studies, cancer research, surgeries, AIDS research with lots of ESL residents and doctors. It isn't like a nor doctor's office "clinic." They don't tell you that when you take the job.
worked for both
cherry picking (MDI) and they have to know what you are doing all day (TSI) "WHERE ARE YOU, WHY AREN'T YOU TYPING?"
OK, I worked for a different TSI.
I don't know about that one.  I work for a very small MTSO with fewer than 20 MTs.  It's my fit, but I'm not going to name names on the boards.
Worked for both.....
I worked for Spheris a while ago, they were very unprofessional in my opinion, disorganized and really didn't pay well, communication was almost nonexistant. My manager never even introduced herself and just really had a bad attitude in her email, which was her only contact.

I started with OSi about 6 months ago and couldn't be happier. Their platform is very easy to use and highly productive. I have never run out of work, pay is always on time and they are very flexible. I am completely happy with them.
worked for them?
This Worked For Me
You sound like you are in the shape I was in about 5 years ago with my hands. My doctor recommended high doses of Magnesium with smaller doses of Vitamin B6 with it. I took 2600 mg (all at one time) of Magnesium every day with 200 mg of B6. Within 3 days my pain was COMPLETELY gone and I've never had to wear braces again! Of course, I no longer take those incredibly high doses of magnesium daily, but I do stick to about 1000 mg a day with a 100-mg capsule of B6, and I've remained pain-free all this time. Good luck to you!! And by the way, my friend works e-bay as her full-time income and seems to be pretty content with it. :)
Have you worked for them before?
Just wondering if you have worked for them before and know how bad the accounts are.  I dont want to get into a bad situation.
who had it when you worked on it?
Has anyone ever worked as an MT
Just applied with temp agency who is hiring for MT work.  Don't know what to expect.  I will be giving up the at-home job to do this job.  I think.  Just wondering would it be less money and demanding line counts, etc.  I think it's close to home. 
Has anyone here worked for JLG?
Never worked there. Don't know.
I worked there I IM'd and
I never heard back from them and if I did it was hours after my message got sent.  Duno what went on there.
I have worked both FT and IC
at home and currently working SE, but am changing to FT.  We need the insurance.  Since I want the option of working more extra if I need it, I have obtained a PT job and might change that to IC.  I like the option of working more than 40 hours to achieve my financial goals. 
I worked for them
Nice company to work for, always pleasant, and the pay was on time.  I don't know if there is a website.
I worked for them and every
Had to call and beg for someone to send me something. It got really old.  They have a person who patrols here and is well versed in trying to sound like an MT, but you can pick it out a mile away what she has written.  And it's not DH.  She is a good person.  The other one I'm talking about, well, her head turns all the way around when she speaks.
No I do not but everyone I have worked for does it.
It is not limited to one co. They just don't care. There is only one company I know that will not take anyone off until they know their work is at almost 100%
Have worked there for a few
I worked for a ST like that
worked for them for a little while
800 lines minimum per day, 1000 on Saturdays minimum.  You can set your own schedule but must stick to it.
who knows, and I worked ........
for them for 2 years.
