Yes, I have 2 emails you can use
to contact Keystrokes directly. They are BKeystrokes@aol.com and LKeystrokes@aol.com
Good luck to you. We can use another good MT! :)
I got 2 emails from them, both for different
positions. I never heard of them much less applied. I deleted the emails.
Got those emails and also got
She said that I was not working and that I had better get on the system and work! Yuk! That stuff is hard to tolerate on your day off. I have worked my schedule and certainly had my lines in for the pay period and still get this type of uncalled for email!
LOL would you like to see my emails?
too many emails??!!
i get an average of 3 a day.
Same here. Way too many emails. nm
I don't have a problem with it. I don't care about talking with anyone else anyway. Had enough of that working in the hospital atmosphere. All it amounts to is a bunch of criticism and gossip. I love this. I work well independently and could care less about talking to anyone. It's like a breath of fresh air to me. Anything I need to say or get an answer for is and can be handled by emailing back and forth and so far it's worked fine with no problems whatsoever. There are always message boards you can talk to others on.
Not only did I get emails, but... sm
About4 weeks after I had left and already started with my new company, I got yet another email, but this one asked why I had not done my required lines for that pay period!! I answered that one, telling them that I had already left MQ and I doubt I would ever reach their required lines. Needless to say, that was the end of the emails :)
I think they must be glad I'm gone. LOL Haven't heard a word from them except a letter telling me someone will call me for an exit interview/survey.
No problems overall for me. I was told to be sure to communicate with them always through TT official email because they don't read personal emails--they just delete them. Before I knew that, I had once emailed my supervisor about a family emergency via my personal email b/c I was out of town and didn't have access to my work PC. I didn't get in trouble b/c they are very understanding about family medical crises and always email back with wishes for speedy recovery for employee or sick family member.
I know EXACTLY the company you are working for, based on the greeting on the email. I am feeling pressure as well, and its getting to me. You're not alone. I already work 7 days a week, so don't know how much more I can help, if ya know what I mean.
I've gotten the emails on the weekends I have off sometimes that ask for everyone to come help, but if it's my scheduled day off and I have things going on I don't and no one has ever confronted me about it or asked me to explain myself. They just send out an email the next day that says thanks to everyone who pitched in yesterday. But you're right - keep the clients happy or the company may lose the account. That's true of all companies.
I know what she was talking about with the emails saying to stretch and reminding people we have to make time sacrifices to keep the clients happy and keep our jobs. It just depends on what account you are on. Some accounts are low and there is no need to email the team and twist their arm a bit to work extra, but other accounts get backlogged, especially starting Friday afternoon and into the weekend, and those teams get the emails. It's not a matter of acute versus clinic, it's just which accounts get busy and backlogged.
Please add me to your list of emails!
I have not typed out my email address due to my email making it obvious of who I am to my current employer but would really appreciate it if you could click on my email link and send some information to me also!
Thank you for your help and your willingness to share information!
I beg to differ about the emails sm
Not sure what you mean by "since certain people are gone now," but those goofy, slightly threatening emails have started up again. How many so far today, 5 perhaps? They have been toned down on the nastiness somewhat, but they look like they were written by an ESL: poor grammar, not spellchecked, improper use of the apostrophe - and this from an alleged long-time MT/QA (or at least that is my understanding)!
And, no, these goofy emails don't have a direct effect on my work, but I just find them annoying, heavy-handed, and unprofessional.
And speaking of ESL, I think you forgot to mention the extremely high volume of ESL involved in working at SS.
I'm seeing emails asking MTs to work OT.
Work is definitely available on quite a few accounts.
I have an applicant who has sent me I do not know how many emails
and inside the email has not put a resume, just a blurb about themself (which is impressive), no phone number, and when I try to reply, the email bounces back saying that it is not a valid email. It matches the name of the applicant, but IF you are a job applicant who has not received a response to your email, please be sure you are including the correct information. I can tell you that the email carrier is sbgclobal.net
I will not name any names or initials, but if you have applied at any companies and received no response, this could be the reason why.
I have gotten some emails from the posts below
from some very professional MTs telling me they were embarrassed regarding some of the responses from their fellow MTs. Thank you. I wanted to let you know that it is appreciated.
On another note, the recruiter calling herself Hiring Manager is not me and I want to let you know that some of what she says may be true regarding resumes, etc. as we all get those, BUT I do not agree with the way she presented herself. I also do not agree with the fact that she is addressing the readers as honey. That to me is rather condescending and I do not treat any of the people who apply with me in a condescending tone. I have written them to request additional information because the newer MTs are learning. None of us in this MT world, recruiters included are not perfect. The whole entire field on a day-to-day basis is a learning experience.
The other recruiter says she only works 8:30 to 4:30 M-F. Well, good for her, but I wonder if she is on the west coast. That might work if she is a west coast recruiter, but east coast recruiters have to expand our day to accommodate those on the west coast. I know my days go late for those who work outside their homes and live on the west coast. They have to come home, have dinner and then they have time to do a phone interview.
The other recruiter said some true things, but I do believe she presented them as a gripe...and I guess we as recruiters have those days, but it should have been presented as a pointer if they wanted to help someone.
I personally have devised a way to do a resume that works if anyone needs any tips. Most of you who have done this long enough know.
For the woman who has no resume, that is a requirement. Through the years I ran into one lady without a resume and she never could seem to put one together and she was a qualified applicant, but that is something we need. If you only had a few jobs, you would not have had to put together much. When you apply for a job, expect to get a resume. If you have been fortunate to have jobs come to you, that is good. I have had that happen too so I do know the reasons why a resume would not be needed, but be prepared in case it is because it can cost you a job if you don't have one.
About the cutesy email addresses, I am with the other recruiter on that one. It totally can take away from a good resume. It will not keep you from being hired, but sometimes I felt kind of silling addressing someone's email address that was one of those cutesy ones. We have the tools in place to have email addresses, utilize them. We do not care if you are a scout leader, mother of 4 lovely children, etc. We care that you are an MT or QA and are a pro. Know when to use that cutesy email address.
OK. I did not mean to put the other recruiter down. I can imagine that she had a trying day yesterday receiving all of which all us recruiters receive. It's a multiple choice out there as far as jobs and I think we all receive the same resumes.
I just wanted to thank those who were thoughtful enough to let me know privately that they did not condone some of the unprofessional remarks made by the MTs. The same goes for recruiters. I do not like to see an MT put down with a name like honey. That bothered me and I noticed in more than one post by the recruiter. It seemed sarcastic, which was entirely unnecessary even if someone had been sarcastic to her.
Me too. They sent me 3 emails that they want to talk to me..but..sm
I emailed them back 3 times and have not heard from them.
They ignore both IM AND emails sm
Emails are usually ignored. As for IM, usually ignored also except for 1 person, who is good at answering but she's lower down the pole and isn't the contact person for some of the stuff. She's the only good one there.
What threatening emails?
That was keep emails LIMITED.
do what I did . . . block the emails. nm
What emails? I don't even know what you are talking about.
TransTech has very few emails and NO IM's
My emails have always been answered..
and if a subject line in an email indicated someone was out of work, I am sure they would get them some work ASAP as bad as they have been needing help lately.
DRC Fired Emails?
Okay, so has anyone heard anything at all about their jobs at DRC (if you want to share)? Yesterday was the day, I think. Will it ever be the company it was before?
Oh, not even counting the emails sent, on and on
and just an IM for a stat dictation. That is really laughable as so many were actually hounded about their work, not an occasional but looking over your shoulder constantly, the emails were endless as were the other notes. Milner flipflopped back and forth on the same formats, 1 day like this, the next day like this, the third day oh back to where it was in the first place. The work I did was for a huge client- did that make any difference as like you say to not being bothered, that the work needs to be done? Nah. They needed the work then but instead made everyone that worked there miserable. I know for a fact as I talked with others (the ones originally hired on and the ones who all quit- quite a lot of them also.) Another thing, donít even think about asking for any kind of raise- impossible and no one there wants to hear that. There was a meeting called at Milners and the other MTers and I laughed about the fact 1 of the head guys came in to let us know how he was especially picked to come back there, called out of retirement in fact and how much he was offered. Oh that really made others feel good! I along with the others could write books on this.
Got your emails and have responded
Thanks so much! The information is truly appreciated. I sent you a reply via email, as well, and I hope you will respond. Thanks again!
Then they should send the Emails to the MT
EVERYONE. If the work is getting done then why don't they fire the MTs not putting in their time?
Yes. I sent emails to everyone I could think of within the company.
Throwing a fit about how I trusted them, believed and accepted their job offer, and now I had bills that weren't going to get paid, I had two kids to feed, and what kind of way was this to treat people. I threatened to take this to the department of labor, write letters to their local newspapers in the Boston area.
So, I was compensated to shut me up. Not that they were necessarily afraid of me, I was just prepared to be a very big thorn in their side until I found satisfaction. So it was easier for them to just send me a check.
OVER 300 EMAILS PRO UNION !
The response was overwhelming - 300+ very supportive emails (and still counting)from hopeful MTs who want to assume an active role in securing their future.
You will be receiving a newsletter, information and questionairres by which you will express your opinion anonymously, in essence voting to agree on boundaries and terms.
We are realistic, and do not expect outrageously high wages, but we do expect to be treated with respect and compensated for our skills and dedication.
There will be no union dues as we get this thing off the ground in as many states as possible. All of our staff members are MTs, and they have volunteered their time to promote this initiative to stop the extinction of our trade.
Thank you for your quick and unexpectly great response !
We are stronger together.
NOTE: For the naysayers who are trying to compare our plight to that of the auto workers', there is no comparison. Apples and oranges. Auto companies are directly affected by stock market plunges, oil prices, and the fact overproduction caused hundreds of thousands of gas-guzzling autos, trucks and vans that sit parked in the dealer lots throughout the US, gathering dust or snow. Unions cannot control the world economy; they an only serve as the voice for a group of workers.
AMENDED: 450+ MT EMAILS !
Comcast and AOL emails
Just an FYI. I recently went back to Comcrap and the installer told me that they made some changes to the way they did the emails, which to him made no sense since everything was going smooth. Now we can't even log into our email address with them. I've heard a lot of Comcast people complain that they aren't getting all of their emails. This has been going on for a hot little minute and they still haven't figured out how to fix it. Just thought I'd let you know that it's an issue with them and not necessarily the people contacting you.
So much to take to DC - thank you for all of your emails and samples
The USMLSU folks want to thank you all for emailing your suggestions, ideas, experiences, as well as samples of the horrific reports that are returned from India to US QA editors to correct - the before product; this is exactly what we needed to take with us to DC. So many of you have responded and are already helping out, that we've proven that a group of skilled professionals do not have to go on strike to make a difference in their financial future.
The fair pay vote results will be listed shortly.
my deleted emails....
My 2 posts, in which I defended you, were deleted, because they were too offensive. But I must say that this was done in a very polite manner.
I ended one of my post with 'Shame, shame', this was obvious a too strong language.
I will try to behave.
those emails didn't go out to everyone
emails re last post
about their playing favorites. i would explain, but if i did it would identify the accounts i work on and since a DTS VP is posting on here, I'm not inclined to identify myself. i guess it's more that i'm being pushed out by only being given bad dictators, but my suspicions were confirmed by an employee that my manager plays favorites.
Update on emails
Thanks to all of you who emailed me. I posted this below but thought I should start a new thread in case someone who has emailed me has not yet received a reply.
My intent tonight is to dig through the archives here to find the thread that lists companies that do NOT offshore and post the linkage to that thread. As I recall, there were MANY companies contained in that thread. It may take me awhile, but I'm determined to find it so anyone interested can pursue those companies in case they're hiring.
Also, thank you all so much for the emails! I am writing back as quickly as possible but I need to start working (no, not for MDI-MD), so I have to be away from my email for awhile. I will indeed answer each and everyone of you as quickly as possible. I've already responded to several of you, so if you check your emails, my reply might be there.
This outpouring of support we're giving/providing to one another is absolutely heartwarming. Remember, ladies (and perhaps gentleman), we WILL triumph over this. We need to stand together and say NO. I realize some of us are not in a position to simply walk away without lining up something else up first, and I'm trying to do all possible to get that list of companies that do not offshore up as quickly as possible for everyone interested.
Hang in there, my fellow MTs. We WILL find greener pastures.
Save those emails and
contact an attorney. What they are doing is false advertising/fraud. If they want to openly state that they will not take work from the American MTs, then I say let them put their money where their mouth is.
Keep those emails and contact an attorney. Show them the numerous press releases where they state their position on offshoring. If an MTSO can sue an MT for posting what they feel is libelousinformation, then the MT should certainly be able to sue in this case and, honestly, should win.
I did save emails
I saved all of the emails that would prove it, HOWEVER, they all have the confidentiality statement at the bottom, so my fear is that if I send them with my appeal letter I could be in violation of confidentiality. What do you think?
Do you get a response to those emails?
Seems over half the MTs on here that have tried to email their liaisons and D herself were ignored
I'm sorry but IMO, this is one burned bridge I'd NEVER want to cross back over. I'd rather work at Spheris than trust the powers that be at MDI-MD again. At least Spheris up front with their offshoring shenanigans.
Love those nasty emails
In fact, I save them for my own personal amusement. I swear I have never seen such unprofessionalism in all my years. I am so tempted to respond to some of those nutty, nasty, threatening emails but I still need to keep the job for a little bit longer.
Just figuring on the number of emails
With the last count of MLSs I had heard there at around 100 (not counting MDI), I was figuring that since I received 73 emails of support for either the content of my post or disagreement with it being removed, it was the majority. If the base number of 100 had changed, then I stand corrected.
Yes: Independence: No: Incessant emails
Leave me alone and let me do my work!!
You are SO right..the least backlog and emails fly. Overstaffed now for sure. nm
sick of the emails from HIS about the new accounts...sm
why should we care? They are sending the U.S. staff those emails to rub salt in our wounds if you ask me. Why don't they just send them to the India email list?
Did anyone else stop getting backlog emails?
Usually get an email from the account liason in the mornings plus backlog reports through the day and then suddenly I get no email at all from them. But I can still log on and work. I know they were changing the email system and I got the email last week sometime I think asking if they had the correct email address, and to let them know if not, but then I stopped getting emails!
I, for one, am glad those emails stopped:-)
They were constantly interrupting my work and really made no difference to me. I work my shift and I can tell by the times of the jobs if we're on schedule or not. Of course, I'm radiology and for some reason I was also getting acute care updates, so double whammy.
Supervisors never answer emails!
Have all the emails go to Junk so you don't see them. Keep calling until
