In Reply to: Yes, it has been very slow. I have not made my line count for 2 to 3 weeks also. sm - mtmtmtmtmt

but in my year with them, I find them to be very stable, with a consistent workflow. I do have several accounts to draw from, but I'm really surprised some of you have more than a rare problem with this.

Would not surprise me
Immediately after posting a negative but factual comment about a service, I received a fail notice on their test - over two months after I took it.

Any company that assumes such a list is accurate you probably don't want to work with anyway...
Does NOT surprise me with DSG . . .
they really do not care about their MT's, and yes, I too was one of their biggest defenders until they turned on me. I was very hurt by it after all the loyalty and hard work I gave them. They do not appreciate it.
It does not surprise me
at all. It is Indian owned and run. Keystrokes has 100% US staff (even tech support is here), and the owner is adamant against offshoring her work. Cardioscribes was probably just trying to avoid holiday pay for the US MTs. You'd think the Mumbai incident a while back would have taught doctor's offices a lesson about that country but I guess not :(
I was also taken by surprise...

but it seemed like a lot more than $30.  I took out family coverage on the new insurance and, since they hadn't taken the premium out before, to have it doubled the first time out seemed like a big chunk.  To add to it, I just got my card on Saturday.  I didn't even know the insurance coverage had started yet!  To go back and pay double since June 1st for coverage you didn't even know you had IS quite a blow.

Oh well, two more paychecks to go before we're out of the hole.   :)

Would not surprise me in the least. Something is coming not sure what.
Wouldn't surprise me any
If they have "QA to QA the QA'ers," you can bet that each step of the QA-ing will have the QA'ers who are QA-ing the QA-ers who QA the MT finding all the work "they" didn't QA to be crappy QA-ing.  LOL
Doesn't surprise me one bit...
same thing they always do...
It wouldn't surprise me at all.
That sure doesn't surprise me. And just think -
if they're willing to commit fraud on such a grand scale, then it's a no-brainer that the people there doing the grunt-work, (and getting shafted paywise in the process, just like we are), are going to look for ways to augment their earnings. Enter the fancy, company-paid-for PC, access to the internet, and access to confidential American information, and you have the potential for fraud and scamming that surpasses what we already know about Nigeria, Pakistan, Cameroon, China, etc.

American businesses are too greedy, they already have more money than they know what to do with, and they are pitifully naiive when it comes to bringing the Third World countries into our corporate systems.

Not yet, but it wouldn't surprise me at all. sm
Have received more than 1 email regarding their attorneys and posting on this board.
Wouldn't surprise me to see that being s/m
1 cent per report.  After all...why should you get paid for typing yes over and over.  Before someone pounces on me I am definitely being sarcastic but still it wouldn't surprise me the way some of these MTSO suits apparently stay awake at night thinking up new ways to screw MTs.
no raise, no surprise
I think I should have had one a year ago myself, but dared not ask because of the economic situation starting to cave and as bad as I want to ask now, I still feel the timing is not right. So many are struggling just to stay afloat and/or profitable.
I agree. It was a nice surprise! nm
What about these surprise situations with Transtech? --

Hard to compare to a normal job, as you are trying to do.  When there is no work at TT, they send out emails not to contact the office.  Of course, there is no pay, yet we reported to work on time ! These are always surprise situations to TT's at-home employees.  Good companies do not treat their employees like this.  You report to work and you are not sent home without pay. 

TT is not the only company that treats their MT's like this -- but be sure to compare apples to apples !!!

Don't compare us with away-from-home jobs. Ex-MQ'er, your time is coming for being out of work.  You are new right now with TT and have nothing to compare to yet.

oh yeah, like that's a big surprise, gals
FN's greed shining thru their friendly facade.  Over-cover an account, make sure you don't earn enough, but they sure do.  Those of us who tried to warn everyone that they always ran out of work were basically told by posters on this board that we were not given work because we were not good enough and they were phasing us out, which was certainly not the case.  They just over-hire.  That way, their TAT is met, but the MTs don't earn enough to make a living.  And now, the bait and switch of going to VR?!?  They've got nerve.  Leave the ever-sinking ship; start warming up those resumes and bail out.
It caught me by surprise too -- I'm right there with you. Fortunately, I have a 2nd job sm

so that helps take the sting out a bit.  I love the people and love the company, but I do not think maybe they realize what a big shock $30 can be sometimes.  To me, the more fair thing to have done would have been to say something like effective next check, we will be taking out double premiums until we catch up or whatever.  However, cannot unring a bell.

And I have always been a bit disappointed that they wait until the following Monday to pay us instead of that Friday, but for the most part it is a good company.  Seems like all of the MTSOs hang on to their $$$ as long as they can -- guess the interest is better in their pockets than on our paychecks.    I was stupid and am now waiting a month to get paid for work I did for a woman in Virginia.  Chalk it up to lesson learned.

Good luck to you (and me!). 

No surprise. We already knew this. Suprised that others are
I guess my point was that it wouldn't surprise me if they DON'T know the law. sm

Because of who is in charge of it.

Nothing surprises me with them. Fake it till you make it.

Obvious lack of reading comprehension (no surprise there)
I am not management. I do VR; the term 'these people' refers to those who refuse to even CONSIDER doing VR and would rather jump ship than learn.

Honestly, I wish EVERY account at TT would go to VR to weed out all of those who can't comprehend a simple post. I'm not surprised so many of resist doing VR; the lack of reading comprehension which is vital to VR is obviously missing in many of you.

Sheesh, now I know what my dad meant when he'd refer to someone being 'stubborn as a mule' or 'head as thick as a rock', lol!
It wouldn't surprise me that the co. didnt want to pay extra for something that helps me but coul
This shouldnt be a surprise. The owner herself posts on this forum all the time when KS is attacked
sad but true
