It has nothing to do with MTStars or the owner of MTStars. It
has to do with the fact that the person who posted gave enough information that the company recognized who it was.  We, at MTStars, do not give anyone information about who posts what.
Thank you and thank MTStars..NM
Maybe MTStars

is also hindering your production?


This board is really a great help when looking for employment.   There are many positive posts that turn out to be decent companies, and then there are also negative posts about experiences each person has had.   Both perspectives should be allowed and not discouraged with threats.  Just maybe, these companies that are trying to decrease our wages even further and are deceptive in their business practices will be put out of business eventually and we might see a new trend.  There are a few businesses posted about regularly on this board that have the same issues come up time and time again.  I see these as red flags.   On the flip side it is just as important to let people know if you've found a good thing (this does not include recruiters on here making untruthful posts for their benefit).  This might encourage companies that are treating their MTs well and are above reproach to continue to strive towards making this once again a decent career path. One could only hope that a board like this would be able to make a significant difference in the way things have been going by networking and sharing our information.

But what about those ads up at the top of MTStars? Those
are their sponsers/advertisers.  One of those could also place a job post with MTstars.

MTStars Ad Policy
That USED to be the policy - but according to the www.mtstars.com homepage:  The hands of time cannot be turned back on the widespread transfer of information globally and as of January 1, 2006, MTStars opened itself up to include the global environment. MTStars limits this only to allow US Transcription Services that outsource offshore to post open jobs seeking US QA Editors. DIRECT offshore posting, communication, solicitation is still prohibited.  Translation:  Only companies that are BASED offshore are not to advertise through this site.  Hope this helps!

Just sent you an email through MTStars (nm)
The owner of MTStars?
I thought Sheri owned it? (though I haven't been here in a while)
Well, MTStars does have a system set up
lack of a better word - I guess its handled on an individual basis at times, i.e. whether to permanently ban or temporarily ban or just a word of warning.  I know from experience.   There are definitely outright trolls, and that is true, but I know even from my own experience, I can just get so angry sometimes at something that I do lose it and say things that I probably actually would have said to someone's face, but maybe not. I don't know. As the posters above have said, we can be a very unappreciated and abused employee, MTs as a whole, and many of us are in very frustrating work situations, more so in these hard times, so, yes, tempers flare. I think most flares here are from those who just refuse to validate others' experiences, i.e. the happy MTs who viciously attack the unhappy MTs, whether just in general or specifically company related.  That is so sad. The MTs finally vent, as really none of us have anyone to talk to or understand in real life, and they get squashed and called names, or insulted that they must be having problems due to poor skills, etc. That's so sad and I generally then find myself attacking people I think are attacking other people.  Its just human nature for all of us, though the name calling and stuff is very poor judgment.  I think its happening more of late because of the financial issues that are impacting us all - bosses and MTs alike.  I appreciate the current editing of this forum, as I said earlier it used to be so heavily edited that it was 100% skewed to hide the truth about the site owner's favorite companies, i.e. advertisers, sponsors, or employment affilitations, etc. I 100% agree that it was her perogative to do so, as she owned it, but it was done in such a way that nobody knew that things were being skewed that way.  So, it was a form of misrepresentation, though, again, her right.  So, I hope that for the most part what I read on here these days is a bit more unfiltered - might not be happy news, but perhaps its more fair and balanced, as they say!
well I am sitting here on MTstars so...
That means there are no jobs. I ran out about an hour ago. Guess I will grab some lunch and try again later. Have a good one.
I'm on MTstars posting so...
work is still low. Been able to meet my committment, but it takes all day.
MtStars, new soap..i love it!

I ditto your sentiments..it IS like getting hooked to a soap.  I read so many posters that tend to go for the jugular, when an opinion is posted contrary to some beliefs.  My daughter, who is also an MT, but in house at a hospital, just got "hooked" on this board and can't believe how "catty" some can be. 

Well, it is all over, in house or at home, in medical transcription or K-Mart, been around for ages, but sometimes it gets brutal in my book.

I won't flame you for being a MQ MT...been there myself for close to 10 years now and it works for me, period.

Love the MTStars Job board....

No Jobs from MTSOs involved in offshoring, sending good/easy dictators to India, Pakistan, Philippines etc and keeping the ESL garbage for us here.

Yep. Go to the home page for MTStars
and click on TOS/Disclaimer (it's on the left toward the bottom of the screen).

Keep your eye on the MTstars job seekers board.
There are ads for ortho accounts quite often, but the ads are usually deleted when the positions are filled.
YES! On MTStars you are allowed to say CHRISTMAS!

Well, think about it!! They lied to the MTStars Admin.
You can email me at admin@mtstars.com
MTStars administration says time and again...s/m

MT Stars has said time and time again to NEVER correct other posters misspellings and/or incorrect grammar. 

Play nicely now, or don't you all know how to follow the rules, which, by the way, are for everyone!


ATSI Thread on MTStars
I saw a recent job listing on another site for an MT radiology position with ATSI, then I came here to find info about them. Doesn't sound promising. Link to short thread about ATSI is included.
And another, more recent thread on MTStars
yes, MTStars says it is okay to give company name.
You are committing libel against MTStars. sm
MTStars does not provide ANY information on any poster to any individual or company.

If you receive an email through the MTStars board, the ONLY way your email address is exposed is if you respond back to them.

MTStars Team

Hmmmm. Did you just suggest that people not come to MTStars?
You are a total mess, and how anyone could take anything you say seriously is beyond me.

You have a real problem! Please seek help!
NO..the only place I ever hear news on MQ is on MTStars.
Most of the time they don't even know who is working for them.  They never call.  They never write.
instead of calling this MTStars, why not call it MQstars - sm

yes, I am being sarcastic, but it seems like the non-MedQuist people have to weed, dig, hack and puke through all the MQ posts just to get to read anything on this board! 

There, I feel better now that I have vented.   

That is a Google ad, it is not an MTStars banner. Take a closer look.
Was let go from Zylomed because of posting to MTStars board
Just a little followup to my post of 10-14-06 post to this board.  The Zylomed MT manager failed to address the real issue I raised concerning taking away regular work without notice or explaination, but decided to let me go today because of my post about their company to this board.  So, because of my comments I have been let go.  Maybe it's best to not name company names (excuse me, my tongue is in my cheek) on a board that's specifically designed to uncover these problems.  So, MTs beware, I guess.  However, I received many supportive emails from others visiting this board--one of those kind MTs referred me to another service that I'm starting with tomorrow (while I beat the pavement locally.)  Much happier MT today!  Feel like I can breathe again.  This board has awesome support.  All worked out well.
Isn't that the MTStars Administrator/owner's business?
Just to advise, that company does not have access to MTStars

they look like from the same person, but this might help:

07/13/2007--They ding you for everything. From what I gather, the few editors they have are very inexperienced and they have an automatic grader that takes lines from you. The account specifics are very vague and often times do not match the examples given. For example, the example may show to do a report one way and if you do it that way, the Editor may mark it wrong and you lose lines. My first week, I lost 60.00 for the most minor of things and things I could verify in the BOS. Nobody will respond when you try to get verification. My check was short, nobody would respond to that either. I left after just 3 weeks. I would stay away from this bunch.

05/29/2008--They are just about all Filipino MT related and they literally kiss their behinds. They used to deduct from them just like the domestics, but they are phasing that out. Domestics are deducted for every little mistake. One girl was let go after only one week, had NO mentoring. Admin staff never been MTs.

I have addressed this in the past and, due to the content on the board currently, I believe it would be in everyone's best interest to repeat it on occasion.  Let's be perfectly clear about a few things on posting on MTStars and posting on any board.  There are 3 topics here each of you need to read:

1.  Your identity when posting on MTStars:   Your identity is safe on MTStars, including your IP address, your email.  Your IP address is not and will not be given out unless we receive a court order to do so.  Even if you receive an email through this board, ONLY if you reply back to that email will your email address be revealed to that person.  If you receive email through this board, the individual sending the email to you has read a post by you and is emailing you blindly - they have no idea who they are emailing. 

Anyone making any suggestion whatsoever that your identity can be determined or verified or retrieved from MTStars through actions by MTStars (other than through a US court order) is libeling MTStars and just trying to panic all of you.  It is a lie. 

2.  Exposing your identity on MTStars or any other forum:   This is something YOU do.  You do not have to list your name for others (individuals or companies) to recognize you.  If you give enough information, it can be very apparent who is posting.  So, you do need to be very aware of this.  Especially if you are discussing details which tie you to a specific situation with a company - if you talk about it, that company probably will recognize who you are.  This can happen on ANY forum - even private ones.  Who reads this board?  EVERYONE!   Anyone can read it.  Anyone can post here.  Individuals, companies...everyone reads here.  Do not think that your own company does not read this website to see what is posted about them.  Even private boards (where you have to sign up to be a member and then log in to post) can only offer you so much protection.  Anyone can become a member of a forum and then read all the posts.  So, again, if you give out too much information you are giving away your identity. 

3.  Posting on other forums:  I want to make sure that all posters here are aware of this situation:  No other forum, including MTStars can guarantee you they will never reveal your information.  Especially those that use free forum software and online applications to provide their boards (e.g., Proboards) as they don't even own their own board and domain!  All posts belong to the company they are getting their free lease from!  In any event, if a forum is hit with a court order, they will have to give up that information (and it can be given from the website host).  So, do not believe any other individual who promises you such safety - it is limited anywhere.  I just wanted you to be aware of it.

If you have questions about any of this, please email me.
