You are wasting your words on this or any site letting it bother you. The bashers will continue

In Reply to: Why is it that when anyone has anything good to say about a company, there are always the posts sm - KS Lead MT
to bash because they get pleasure from doing so.
What you need to do is do not read the threads. Bashers love to bash.
If you choose to read the threads, take it with a grain of salt and just let it go over your head.
You know the truth and an intelligent MT will go to the company for questions particularly when that company makes it clear in their ads that they can.
I just would not sweat it. Know that intelligence prevails in this industry and the smart ones will find out for themselves rather than read sour grapes or anything that resembles it.
Go relax and don't worry about it. Enjoy your day.

Has she posted anything to that effect, or is she letting testing continue?
I dunno, this whole situation sounds a bit peculiar to me. I like to give everyone the benefit of a doubt, but this one just seems peculiar for some reason (or for several reasons).
I hope whoever bothered to test for this and landed it posts how their experience goes.
For nice people only no bashers
This is a peaceful message.
Post here only if you have something nice to say.
Ugly messages not allowed!
and typically the bashers/whiners cannot spell; overall ....
I am on there too. I stopped posting much anymore because the bashers. sm
We were accused by nasty posters that we air dirty laundry on here. Other times, we are too cheerful. Other times, we must be management. Because of that, I tend not to post. Should we ask them to get a yahoo board or something? How about the intranet? Does that have a board?
Definitely need the Sted's Derm&Immuno Words and a Path&Lab Words to do derm. Lots of weirdness!
Sted's Ortho Words, a lab words book, at least 1 drug book, and your AAMT BOS 2nd
yes, you are wasting your time with them.
The human resource person that works there is beyond pathetic. Because of the rules of this board, I am not able to go into it further, but let's just say that I used to work on the inside at their office. I left, along with 5 others that worked INSIDE, to go work for another company.
I'm not wasting my time then (nm)
Please tell me, am I wasting my time?
I have been looking for clinic work for 2 months now with a U.S. based company that has employee status, benefits, doesn't offshore, and little, if any VR. Am I going to go blind looking or does this kind of position no longer exist? I have over 10 years experience, tired of testing and never hearing back (I know, they are being swamped). Still . . .
Depressed doesn't come close to describing how I feel.
If there is hope, will somebody please throw me a bone?
You are wasting your time and energy!
There are jobs being off-shored in almost every industry imaginable. Call customer service or tech support for any major company, and you are bound to be speaking to someone from a different country. That is the way it is and that is the way it will continue to be now that we have worldwide communication in mere nanoseconds. You can do whatever you want, but nothing you do is going to change anything. The Internet and the telecommunication industry have created a worldwide workforce and it is here to stay!
As far as quality goes, have you ever seen some of the reports transcribed by citizens of the United States? The quality of the reports I have seen is appalling! Martians could probably produce more accurate medical reports than many people on this very forum can produce.
Prolly wasting your breath, she's not even
A rising tide lifts all boats equally. (The reverse is also true.)
Try telling Spheris instead of wasting your time with us
You dont have to explain anything to anyone on here. I would take these great points that you have had and tell them that you are in the process of looking for another job and maybe that will scare them into giving you a raise.
Telling about it on here really wont do anything unless you talk to Spheris about it.
Good luck! It does look like you deserve a raise, but I think most of us do too.
Would like to know to before wasting time on transcribing tests.nm
You are still wrong to thank your company on an MT site, appropriate is your site.
i think the opposite, give the boot to those who are wasting everyone's time and just don't ge
the quality dropping also drops our pay for good MTs who care about quality.
Plus time-wasting instant message harassment
yes, justme, please save us from wasting our time on the likes of YOU!
stay home and type your 50 lines an hour and have a twinkie on me.
Does anyone work for J&M? Michelle doesn't want anyone wasting her time SM
according to her job posting if you don't want 7.5 cpl. Wondering if that is always how it is over there, no time to talk...gotta type, gotta hire, gotta fire

phew...i'm glad it wasn't just me, no more wasting time on this!
i'd like to know too. i did send an email back before wasting more of my time to see if the work
You aren't wasting your time, you're investing in a potential "yes!"
As to why you don't get a response, it might be for one or some of the reasons below, or none of them:
a. You don't meet clearly-stated qualifications. I delete every resume or application that doesn't meet standards required. If you can't follow instructions, don't expect me to take time out of my busy day to spend time on explaining this to you.
b. You're an Indian pretending to be an American. Again, I'm not wasting Keystrokes on you.
c. Your application is filled with errors. Maybe the dead silence from recruiters is a message to go back and review what you've put out there.
d. Maybe your application got overlooked. It has happened. Email the recruiter. If you don't get a response, review a, b, and c above and e below.
e. Maybe the recruiter is swamped. There are days when 10 hours will fly by and I've hardly had time to breath. There are applications to look at, resumes to review, tests to score, interviews to schedule, paperwork to complete, interviews to do, reports to file, fires to put out, and someone has to beat the tech people/MT supe upside the head to get them to call an irate MT, who feels that YOU are responsible for her every woe and calls 6 times a day to tell you about it.
From a recruiter POV, don't put your experience on page 4 under everything else you've done. I don't care that you work in the church nursery, or that you drive bus, or that you swept floors at Mitzi's Kut n Kurl. Don't make me wade through all that to find out if you can do the job I'm trying to hire for. I suspect I've tossed good resumes because I don't have time to read someone's life story before getting to the information I need. I also don't want to know your parent's names and professions (why do Indians do this?).
So, if you don't get a response you can either call or email, or just move on. It's not necessarily a rejection of you, but rather the reality of a busy society.
Thanks, but no thanks. Thank you for letting me know. - nm
Okay, thanks for letting us know!!!
Okay, thanks for letting us know!!!
Thanks for letting us know!
I happen to work for an excellent MTSO as an IC, never miss a paycheck, EVER. There are others not so lucky. If it were not for checking on this board, how on earth would we know who to trust? We need to keep each other informed. Great job!
Thank you for letting me know!
Thank you for letting us know! (sm)
Thanks for the information! I bet she is bombarded with people! Hope to hear something soon...
Thanks for letting me off the hook. nm
ex QA mgr lost her job for letting cat out of the bag...
and that is then I found another job as well.
Thanks for letting me know! Congrats to you too...
I wait for that knock on the door every day :). It is like Christmas is coming or something. Looking forward to starting. Thanks again for letting me know.
Thanks for letting TT'ers know...
I have almost 40 years of experience and was quoted 4.5 cpl on editing, AND I have been with TT for a few years already. Now I know I have a bargaining edge since you are being paid 6.5 cpl. How in the world did you manage that? I would definitely try editing for that, with the incentives and all. So glad you posted this. I really do not want to leave the company.
Are you asking a question or just letting
just letting people out there
know a little more about the company. It was discussed that no one could find anything about the company and I made a post that could provide a starting point that was not speculative for someone's future search. Didn't mean to be smarmy at all.
Thanks for letting us know what you found out NM
I'm letting you know I found 3 companies who do this, see above..nm
I was just letting the OP know if they did not like Meditech there were options - nm
There are "ways" of letting the hospitals
Thanks for letting us MTs know, geez, so sorry this happened.
.They have ads running too. Thanks again, almost sent resume.
CONTINUE TO LOOK
You will find that there are good and bad things with every company out there, but the bad certainly outweigh the good when it comes to MDI-FL.
I tried and continue to try with my own
kids, but sometimes just being out in the world today taints what I have tried to teach. I pray daily for this world, but it is sliding downhill quickly. It saddens me...all the hatred and intolerance of EVERYthing these days. Even trying to keep my own intolerance under control is an endless fight...but at least I try...more than I can say for most. Thanks for posting. I know I am not alone. Take care.
If you want to continue using WP5.1, sm
check out First Choice Medical in Florida. Great people.
Should you continue?
Not only NO, but H**** NO. Why enable someone to take advantage of you? You deserve the kind of treatment you will accept; that is an adage of the business world. Get out of here and go someplace where you are treated like a professional.
I'm sorry, but why would you continue
to work for someone after they owed you, say $500, much less $10,000??????????
Interpro? Anything worth letting a new person know about?
Nah, even more work and the benefit of letting you make a
Mind letting the rest of us in on the conversation and let us know
at least the initals of the company? It is just maddening to be outside of a conversation. LOL.
They keep losing accounts and letting people go. nm
Thanks for letting me know..I'll look for the letter in the mail! (nm)
Why did you continue to work for MDI...
for years then if you could make so much more elsewhere????
VR will continue to improve just like
everything else in the technology age.
Bubbye, MT world.
But it's a blessing in disguise. Maybe now we can find jobs where we're treated with respect and get paid better than the average janitor.
