Warminster office is about ready to close its doors. Our accounts unfortunately went to Amherst. I

In Reply to: MQ Houston office closing? I was thinking about applying but I just heard that they are closing - Texas Two Step

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.

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.
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.

Sorry this is the Amherst office of MQ.
Amherst MQ Office
Why is this office allowed to operate this way?? Why is nothing done. I wish this office would be closed and we were transferred somewhere else but it seems like any office in the NE that is closed, is sent to Amherst.
Amherst regional office
i hope that you are not referring to the amherst office, that has to be the worse office in the northeast--let's hope that the regional office is somewhere else
Which office are you in. I am in Amherst and always out of work along with everyone else. What good
do the incentive plans they bring out do if we have not work. Isnt that crazy. You get x amount of money for x amount of lines but no work and now they will give employees more leeway to get their lines in so we will all be fighting for lines at all hours.
MQ Ohio office closing-why not Amherst

What I don't understand is why they are closing an office that is obviously run very well--I don't think I have every seen anything but good about this office and yet they are closing it and continuing to leave the Amherst office open. What is wrong with this picture!!!!


Something is not right here but yet nothing is being done

no answers, but correct, not out of Amherst office.
Is this the same office as Amherst. Why do they constantly run you out of work at Buffalo with no
explanation. Well, a lot of offices that are closing are shifting to Buffalo so I will be very unhappy if I lose my accounts and I will be long gone. Are you losing a lot of MTs at Buffalo because of this.
Does anyone work for the Buffalo/Amherst office of MQ and do you get bounced around a lot on
accounts or do you have a main mostly. What can you tell me about these people.
This office may be soon joining Amherst and Foxboro so not sure about that. I have not heard much
good on here about it.
Is everyone in the Amherst office being run out of work or how are they dealing with this situation
if you are out of work. Anyone with any experience with this at Amherst that can shed some light on what to expect at this office from what you have experienced. Thanks.
Can you tell me about the Amherst office as I just got transferred there and alrady seeing my work
disappear. Where does it go.
Well here we go running out of work at Amherst again. Does this go on all the time at this office as
I just started there. How many accounts do you need to have work there. This whole thing with MQ is ridiculous and they keep hiring. Must be getting ready for something.
Does anyone happen to have the number to call Amherst MQ office. Thanks much.
Are we all from the same office. I am from Amherst and they run such a tight TAT time anything runs
us out of work even a doctor coughing a few extra times and we are out of work.
Yeah, the accounts keep close tabs SM

on who is typing their work at my company and I know for a fact they have demanded that certain people not be allowed to type their work, so I know that does happen.  It also used to happen in the hospital I worked.

As much as I feel for you having a rough time, in business (and this is a business) there is really not much room for error here and these companies can't keep people who continually make errors - otherwise the account goes bye-bye and the company has to replace it with another account, not easy to do these days.

Is there a reason that MTs get nothing extra at Amherst and have so many accounts. Who is in charge
that makes these decisions or do the decisions come from Corp and are going to be the norm for all MQ main offices.
Because the girls that monitor the accounts in the office were told the accounts either go on DQS or
move on. All accounts to be with MQ must be on DQS and no more different platforms. ONE ONLY DQS. They can send more work overseas then.
Dont count on it. We got transferred to Amherst and all of a sudden tons of backups on the accounts
and no work.
Advice from an MTSO. You will not be ready until you think you are ready and it takes more than MT
One of the most important things a service owner can have is confidence. You have to have confidence in yourself before anyone else can.

Transcription is only about 50% of what you need to know. Set yourself up right from the beginning. Pick a name, incorporate, open a checking account.

Then put the basics in place down to the littlest detail. Pick your colors, your logo, your motto.

Put together a business plan. A formal one. It will help define where you want to go and will add to the professional image you want to portray. Register with the state and your city or county.

Take a small business class at a community college - that is a HUGE help.

The other 50% is accounting, business management, HR, marketing, sales and legalities.

It sounds like a lot but it will pay off.

And be prepared ... as you succeed, there will be a lot of people that will try to talk you out of it but you need to be strong and realize that they did not do it so they have no idea. Get some thick skin.

I used to post a lot on here, and learned the hard way not to. This is the first time in a long time that I have come over here, but your post caught my eye. I do not post anymore, but my company has a lot of posts about it and you have to learn to put blinders on it and ignore the bashers. Hard to do but trust me, very necessary.

Anonymous MTSO, although some will figure out who I am !
Because they have revolving doors
It is my understanding that when an office closes the accounts that do not want to go on DQS are not
still serviced by MQ so that may also be what is going on. All accounts I believe must go on DQS or find another service.
Companies with revolving doors
I feel there are a lot of professional MTs who get treated in an awful manner, even those with years of experience and expertise. I feel that more of us need to speak up against these companies who treat MTs poorly so that other people will not be their innocent victims.
Can anyone working for the Ohio MQ office tell me who they are and are the accounts decent to do or
are there a lot of ESLs. Thanks for any info you have.
I would send in your resume or call the office. Some accounts do not
use phone lines at all and are internet only. My account is an 800# but I am not sure if there are any openings on my account.
Great office staff, okay pay, horrible ESL's on all accounts. NM
Lots of new accounts. I called the office to ask a question and sm
found out that there are more than a dozen new accounts starting in the next couple of weeks. I am happy at KS but anything is better than MQ. I left there a year ago and am very glad that I did.
Not yet but our office is being transferred there I think with out accounts. Doesnt sound good. Why
did you transfer from Foxboro. I wont stay there if they take me off my accounts. How is the quality with putting people on all these accounts. It is my understanding all the NE offices will be working out of Amherst fairly soon. What a fiasco that sounds like it will be. How long do you think this will last until all the good MTs move on if that office contines to do that.
I hope you are right because my office adamantly denied until it happened that our accounts were
moving and they are closing.
Great office staff, okay pay, no benefits, horrible ESL all accounts...NM
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.
Was Warminster, God knows who we work for now nm

They were pulled into Warminster and some may now be in New York.
So is Warminster. Pity some but not all there. They never worked for the MT at all.
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.
The main office was in Bolingbrook but they built an office in Yorkville last fall. SM
I think that the owners live in Yorkville, so it was built close to their house. Nice office, just pretty far out.
Just curious, is the MQ Nashville office the old Lanier office? nm
I don't work in the office and never claimed to. I am just saying that since the new office open
October with everyone of the admin staff in one place, these problems do not occur any more.
Can't get paid in the office if you don't work in the office.
JLG has MT's working at home, not in the office, not to mention working out of state.  The mail is the only way to get paid since they have temporarily suspended direct deposit.  The only ones getting paid on time are the ones that do work in the office, like the management and people answering the phone. 
Closed FW office, Indianapolis office too. nm
Close, but not quite.
All I have to do is close it out.
Yes. Amherst
How did you know?
