the *broom closet* statement was posted in the one above mine. I was just responding to hers, and I was trying to be funny about the mailorder bride thing. apparently you don't have a sense of humor either, on top of being rude.

    You do not read posts correctly
    I said I was starting work around 12 and was late. No one contacted me about my not being signed in. I never sent an email and did not say I did. Maybe that is why you donít work for them anymore, reading something into things not there.
    Folks really need to read the posts correctly....
    Guess some are coming out from underneath that rock again. I asked others if they had to work for Christmas. Please get things right. I work the hours I want and AM NOT WORKING CHRISTMAS by choice. Hello... do you comprehend what you read???
    I wish people read these posts correctly.
    I am amazed that people here do not read the postings correctly and assume and go on and on about something that was not said in the first place. NEVER was the person posting about her father dying told to suck it up, NEVER. Arent we all transcriptionists and we have to listen and transcribe correctly what is heard? I am totally amazed myself that this just went on and on and it was NEVER said to the person whose father died.
    Yes, you read it correctly - sm
    The platform is fairly basic.

    They have made some huge improvements in it since I started editing on it but there is still some room to improve.

    As with any other program, you can expect a learning curve so it's really about finding a way to make it work for you.

    I have been seeing some improvement in my production (baby steps) but it would be really nice if I was at least making what I was before with just transcribing. I'm not, in case that wasn't clear.

    Not to put the entire blame on the platform, I need to readjust my thinking and approach to getting my work done. It's different.

    I have been very happy with Transcend for a long time. They are listening, even if sometimes they don't appear to be. It just takes a little time for them to figure out what needs to be changed in order for us (MLSs) to get our jobs done faster and easier.

    Like I said, I'm trying to be patient because the last platform switch (when we went to VoiceScribe) was kind of a mess for about a year before it was really working smoothly but it turned out pretty darn good too. I still have hope for editing on this BT platform.
    If you had bothered to read correctly- it said
    Some years ago working inhouse and my having seniority and supposedly had first choice at vacation, the time I chose was a time another person with less seniority needed for a trip overseas. She had put in for the time I wanted and I was told like it or lump it and I did not have a choice in that week. Being as I was making good money, I just sucked it up and stayed there. HOW DO YOU GET SHE TOLD SOMEONE ELSE TO SUCK IT UP????? SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT HERSELF. READ CORRECTLY NEXT TIME.
    Oh, I read correctly. Apparently you're sm
    not seeing the point - you accepted .075 cpl.  YES, I understand clinic notes.  You don't place much value on your skill apparently. 
    Last word here - People here need to read a post correctly
    I never told HER to suck it up. Why donít you read postings correctly. Can you not make a distinction between me saying I JUST SUCKED IT UP as telling about my vacation and you saying something entirely different? What is the matter with the posters here? I am outta here for the afternoon. Everyone have a good time.
    s/b...read these posts.

    I did not read all the posts but...
    11 cpl is still available in some areas if you are working independently...straight for the doctor...especially out west, but then you have to pick up work,deliver, etc., or work 'in house'. My relative in Washington State was getting 14cpl !!! Then again, she was young, blond, and beautiful! Might have gotten a higher cpl just for that!!! hey! facts of life.
    read the posts further down re DRC

    This makes me sad.  They always stayed under the radar, had stable crew, never a bad post. Hope it is a temporary rough patch. I always thought if the recruiter you talked with had been there for years (versus 3 or 4 days like most) it was a sign of a good company.



     


    You just don't get it. Read posts above and below.

    SHE'S RIGHT - ONLY READ POSTS THAT ARE USEFUL TO YOU

    You do not have time to filter through the rest of the garbage.  If someone's post is not useful and contributing, then ignore it.  Don't even respond.  This interview alone may not make a difference, but when you add it to the next one, to the complaint letters, etc. there is a combined effort that can make a difference because of course you want it to go beyond one letter, one interview, one complaint, one industry.  Trickle up so to speak. 


    I have not read your other posts sm
    nor will I waste my time. I am quite offended by the comment of being an MT is not that hard or special. Its comments like that which have put this profession down where it is.

    Obviously you are not a professional MT or you wouldn't even think that much less say it.

    Those of us who have been in this business any length of time have been through it all. It is a difficult profession. The knowledge we must have to turn out a perfect medical/legal report is unreal. The doctors who dictate the stuff could not put together a report as we have.

    Over the last few years with VR coming along and everybody and his brother and sister wanting to be an MT, the quality has gone to pot and it seems that it is an accepted fact which is very sad.

    BTW, yes I am one of those MTs who go to the doctors office and talk in medical terms but I dont' tell them I am an MT because they usually ask what I do for a living. You know what? Being able to understand and communicate with these doctors has saved my life in the past. How about you? If you are an MT, then I dare say with your attitude, you don't have a whole lot of pride in what you do and consider this to be nothing more than a typist job!
    The details have been given already. Read the posts

    You want more precise specifics, leave an email address.  I'm not putting my head on the block with specifics on a public board.  


    Yes, I've read several posts about SS
    and will beware. Thanks. I've learned a lot just by reading all the posts here.
    Do we have to go through THIS again?? Read past posts! .....nm

    Did you not read all the posts about no work, that if

    you had bills to pay this wasn't the job you would want? 


    I read below posts and don't see whether they require ULD!
    TIA
    If you are not wanting to read the posts, don't. (SM)
    There is no need to harass posters just because you aren't agreeable to what they post.

    Please, please, please....read past posts.
    They should give you enough warning.
    Read all posts in this thread...
    I have already called the management company who manages this building. They have no knowledge of a JAX Transcription who currently occupies or who will be occupying.

    I need the suite number in order to check it out. There are several businesses in that office building. The rent in that building is very high...doubtful that a new company would start out in that building because of this.

    If I have the suite number, I can go and see who actually occupies the suite. BUT, according to the management company, there is no such company in their building. This is the same building that Transcend is in. I have called Transcend and they have never heard of this Company. If you call the phone number that is provided in the posting by this company, you will get a regular answering machine. I think this is totally bogus.
    Have you read the posts on the MQ board?? You might
    s
    I have read all of the recent posts that came up
    when I searched, was wanting more information as it did not answer all the questions I had, that is why I was asking someone to email if they could give me more specifics. Thanks.
    I've read the old posts
    before I accepted a position with them and I am glad I ignored them. I find my line rate to be very fair compared to what I have seen advertised for other companies, no it isn't the 14 cpl that I used to get on my own but who would expect that now anyway :). I have never had any problems with them. Pay has always been on time, the QA and management are always quick to answer any questions I have and they leave you alone during the day. IM is only used for quick problems and I can count on 1 hand how many times they have IM'd me, other than my first 2 days to see how I was doing and if I needed anything. To each their own though, everyone will not be pleased with the same companies.
    Do you read posts before responding?
    sd
    for the last time, if you read the posts and
    had your listening ears on; there was NO NEED FOR ANYONE TO REPLY.
    No, not at all. I did not even read the Grinch's posts
    It was my own griping that got to myself. Note: Post. Sometimes a person does not realize how much something bothers them until they put it in writing and there is the first step toward working toward a solution.
    I can say, however, Grinchy bully did teach me 1 thing: Poverty of material items, even food pale in comparison to poverty of the soul.
    Read all the recent posts about TT and KS but..

    if some of those who work at these companies could email me I would appreciate it.  Looking at possibly making a change soon and just wanting to ask some specific questions and chat about your experiences with them.  Thanks!


    If you read the posts in the archives you

    will run as fast as you can.  They are not are reputable company and I'm not even sure they are a transcription company at all, but a front just to rob you blind.  We call them TransScam. 


    There are multiple unresolved complaints with the BBB. 


    I know there are other posts, I've read them...sm
    I'm strictly looking for people with good experiences with DSG, not problems with them. I know there are some MTs who work there who are happy, a friend of mine knows someone who loves this company, so it can't be all bad. Those are the people I'm asking to hear from. Thanks anyway:)
    if you ever read the posts over on the MQ board sm
    lots of those folks didn't believe what they were told either. It just took a few years to really hit them. Now they are all screaming.

    The poster has a right to post what she did. The other posters also have a right to post the positive posts they have. I am glad they did post. I just wish I had known all this before I went to work for LM, I would have weighed all this out and been more careful as far as looking for signs that I was not going to get paid, i.e., I wouldn't have done as much work the first pay period until I saw that I did get paid on time.
    Posts about them almost daily. Read through past
    posts.  They offshore.  Communication horrible. 
    Scroll down and read the numerous posts over the
    last week or so.  Also dozens of posts in the archives. 
    well I've read all your posts and responses and
    no one has been ugly or attacked you at all


    I read some posts a year or so back (sm)
    that it was a husband/wife operation - that the wife was super nice and very easy to work for - no comment positive or negative on the husband that I can recall - that they usually always got paid on time but there was that little bit about being paid when client paid - which is a little scary - I'm of the firm belief that a company - large or small - should have enough cash flow to pay their people - that is running a little too close to the edge for me - but if it is a good company and great platform, good docs - I might try them someday.
    Just read my other posts, aint gonna do that
    I am in my golden years and that is what they should be. I could retire now if need be but I choose to work on because that is just me. I would NEVER work for a place that gets on my nerves like the ones who work for MQ. What is the purpose? The posts seem to be very unhappy with the lack of pay, the hard platforms, the cesspools- why would you stay at a place like that? I hired on a place about a couple of years ago - the platform was horrible- just how long did I stay after training? Oh, about a month and saw I was getting nowhere. I love my job, love the pay (for me) and have no problems. Hopefully the VR can get straightened out as it is sorta quirky just now.
    Read the archives. Many posts, none good. nm
     
    Just read the posts on this board from SS Management
    It's obvious NOTHING HAS CHANGED AT ALL!  Rude, stupid people running this company.  That's why they have such a high turnover.  They can't keep anyone!  Hello!  I mean, look, this is a good example of how dense the mgt of SS is:  They post awful, rude, childish CRAP on this board and then try to tell you, oh, things have changed, it's not like that anymore.  Yeah, right... 
    I have read lots of posts here and yours, without a doubt,
    seems to me to be one of the worst I have seen. You have just told another human being they have nothing of importance to offer to anyone. I saw this and I hope you feel better by posting because I think by far it is the worst as far as putting someone down. For the 1 this was intended for, I hope you take it with a grain of salt and do not stake your life on a statement like this. I would, as my mother used to say, consider the source.
    See my post above...I love to read posts like yours!
    I'm ecstatic to be on board with Transtech and reading posts such as yours from long-term TT'ers makes me smile that I'm part of the team now as well.
    If others read my posts as insulting that shows their
    I post what I see as proactive, get her done, dont be a victim encouragment. Strongly put, maybe.  But I feel passionatly about this issue and hate to see women letting themselves be vicitms.  Engaging in the poor you, you been treated bad, it is so sad, does nothing to encourage them to drag themselves out of the mire and take charge of their lives.
    Read the posts in the archive about Heartland. That should give
    you a good idea what is in store for TransTech. It was announced last week that the Heartland COO has joined Transtech as President/COO.

    They offshore. Lots of posts about them if you'll read
    the archives. 
    If you've read the recent posts about them, how could you even think of applying? nm

    Oops!!! B-wear??? what does that mean. I read some posts but I could not see that anyone clarified
    what the benefits were changing to...Anyone??
    I'm sure you'very read many posts about mandatory OT on this board.

    Thanks, Alice, I had read all the negative posts. I just wanted to know if
    anyone who worked for them had anything positive to say. The screaming b*@ch responding to this post doesn't realize that people do need to work, but some of us want to weigh all responses. I'm not living life looking through rose-colored glasses. I don't live it, either, by focusing on every negative my mind conjure up, like the whacko responder here. Good grief, talk about needing a life!

    Thanks, Alice, doesn't seem anything has improved here as far as Focus.
    I do not know anything about the company, but did read posts that they paid late. sm

    The pay was decent, though, at 10 cpl, but it was 3rd shift every weekend, and I decided to pass just in case I ever decide to get a life. 


    Sounds like you had a bad experience -- sorry for that.  Hope wherever you are at now is better.
