Leave Spheris off your resume
You don't need unemployment.  You have to pay taxes on it.  There are plenty of companies hiring.  Leave Spheris off your resume.  Believe me, some companies won't be honest with you.  I speak from experience. 
Then why leave? I've worked for Spheris
I would let them keep their $500!
That happened to me constantly at Spheris
Taking the steps to leave Spheris - 10 years!
It is hard to give Spheris facts, since there are multiple units to it. Leave
Hey what happened to my post?
what happened to my post?
I just wanted to know what a virtual line count was? 
Wondering what happened to my post about
talking about QUITTING MDI and I thought mine was a positive post about the ebb of flow of work in this business and in support of the owner.  Was there something wrong with my post?  I really do not understand.

What happened to the post yesterday about C-TEch? sm

Does anyone know where it went?  It was a harmless question about info on the company ... did it get deleted?  I wanted to see if there were any follow ups.



What happened to my post about hourly + incentive? nm
What happened to my post? The last time I checked in, there were no responses. sm
I had asked which companies did not require working Saturday or Sunday.  Thanks for your help!
What happened to my post with an inquiry for companies that have clinic work available in the

mornings (not in the afternoons or evenings)?  I did not think there was anything inappropriate in my message and thought it was on the correct board.  Thanks.

Spheris --sending out recruitment post cards?

Any one else get these things?  Don't they offshore?  I could have swore I saw some things on here about them running out of work. 

Just wondering

Spheris employees are instructed to not post messages on sites like this.
I still feel like a team player of Spheris, as the shackle scars are still on my legs! Spheris was

Micromanaged to the microsecond, or ms!  Horrible. And part of a team?  Total opposite - part of a team as in prison.

Don't imply you're worried at all. Just stating fact that Spheris does NOT allow a Spheris MT
work concurrently for MQ - no exceptions.  MQ, on the other hand, does not have the same feelings as Spheris.  Just all I had to say so that MTs aren't misled into thinking they can do the same "legally". Even went to the ropes on this issue with Spheris, as I was professional as well, and wouldn't share info, etc. The point they raised was that MQ is their direct #1 competition, and if I was typing for MQ and doing great work, that was in direct conflict of interest with Spheris' best interests.  Guess which one I obviously stuck with!!
Thank you, Spheris recruiter! Anybody wanna place a bet that there are lots of Spheris
HELP WANTED ads on the job board?? So funny!! Out of the blue, Spheris, we love you!! Lets all run and apply NOW!!
I also know Spheris would fire you if they knew you worked for MQ. That is a BIG NO with Spheris!
My post should say the post above not the post below, Sheryl's post to be specific. nm
Spheris - any spheris employees out there care to s/m
comment on the new Cornerstone platform, good, bad? Will we all be going to SR on this? Thanks.

I will leave it, thank you very much
through these 2 rotten companies, I finally have found a good company, one that appreciates my work (which is very good) and one that does not lie to me or steal lines!!! So take that!!
Why did you leave?
Or do you still work for them? I had the same experience - just sent my paperwork back, but haven't heard anything, including training date, etc.
Leave it alone. I(SM)
If you don't like what they posted, that's fine. You have no right whatsoever to harass them for it and yes, that is exactly what you were doing.


leave your job
Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey, don't do it!:)
why did you leave
see below, and please leave me alone, if you have nothing
meaningful or thoughtful to post.
Thank you.
Why did I leave? SM
1. Lack of tech support. Computer once was down for 3 days before tech support finally got in touch with me -- despite my leaving 2 messages.
2. Cut in pay for ASR work. Line rates for ASR work were reduced by approximately 50% compared to straight transcription line rate. PTO accrual rate also almost cut by 50%.
3. Lack of communication. E-mails, not always but occasionally, will never be answered. I figured out this usually happens when they don't know the answer and don't want to admit they don't.
4. Nasty people at the Help Desk. You are required to have your IM turned on while working. If Help Desk needs a stat done, they can get very nasty with you if you don't get it done in what they feel is a timely fashion, its the end of your shift, or for some reason it doesn't fall into your cue.
why did you leave?
Why did you leave? NM
Please don't leave
We are not all malcontents. I, too, have worked for different hospitals and understand your reasoning. Hang in there - some of us don't blast (at least not very often).

By staying there you are giving them life.  Quit now.  Anyone who works under those conditions can only blame themselves.  Companies can't **** employees like garbage if there are no employees. 

let's all leave
Okay all you TTers, let's leave this board for good.  We know we have a good thing at TT.
Why did you leave? nm
Why did you leave?
Just wondering if you don't mind...
You can always leave
Some of us like our jobs. And I'm not the only rah-rah.

And for your information I don't get paid anything extra. I'm just not as jaded. Sorry 'bout your luck.


It's funny how much you'll talk about the company and the director without putting your name. Bet you wouldn't say the same thing if we we're in an office where there was a face with those comments!

I would not leave
I work for a small company as an IC. The company knows IC means I work when I can or want to. I have no set schedule. That is #1 importance to me. But aside from that, the account I work on is really nice. I have run out of work on occasion, but it is not a regular thing and seems to happen mostly when someone new is hired. The new people seem to go in and work around the clock, taking work from those of us who have been there longer and tending to be the cherry pickers, which annoys me somewhat, but that usually dies down within a couple of weeks and then things get back to normal, with enough work for everyone. There are some ESL dictators but not a ton, and many of those are easily understood. The owners of the company are really easy people to work with, very understanding, etc. The pay is always on time, and I feel I earn decent pay for what I do and I feel like I am valued there. I would not leave them now or otherwise.

Now my second job is a whole different story. I work as a coder for a large hospital, and i would leave in a heartbeat if I could. I work from home and again have no set schedule but do have to work xx number of hours each week; I just pick the times to work. That is it's only advantage. The work is demanding and difficult. We get no respect for it at all. The stress is incredible as we work on a production standard that is virtually impossible to meet. We have 0, that's right 0, people in our group who meet the standard, and we have 27 coders. The expectations are unachievable, and we are constantly pressured to do more and more and more but we get less and less and less in return. Sounds familiar? However, this is the job that provides benefits for myself and my hubby, so I am stuck there for time eternal (or until Medicare kicks in for us). In my lifetime, I have always enjoyed working, but this is truly the first time I could say I hate my job and mean it wholeheartedly. That is why I feel for so many of the MTs out there who are stuck in situations that are making them miserable. Considering the amount of time an individual spends working, shouldn't we be able to feel good about what we do?
Why would you leave?
Why would you leave a perfectly good job that you like because two companied merged?  Why not wait to see how it works out?  I've worked for Transcend for five years and for the most part they are a good company...it would work AGAINST them to take you off your regular accts and put you on unknown accts then train people to work your accts.  Their goal is to get the lines done and done well.  Pay is above most companies and you do get paid for major holidays.  There is PTO, benefits and 401K.  Please don't do something foolish, especially in this economy.
why don't they just leave us alone to do
our job and put this wasted research money into something worthwhile?? Why don't they put it into finding a cure for cancer or something?
If YOU think you are a G.P. then YOU can leave.
matters what the person who percieves herself as a G.P. thinks, and if she WANTS to stay or go.
Please go find your new job and leave it be
I figured there would be a post on here after the forum.  But let's not  make it out to be more than it was.  There was 1 post.  That is because people's names are shown on the company forum.  And on MT Stars, who knows how many posts are from the same few people.  If Transcend was so bad, you would think that it would not be prospering as it is.  I work there, I love it.  I have had NO problems, NADA.  I am not the only one either.  I am sick of hearing the bashing.  I am sure that there are problems there, as anywhere, but they are a good place to work and compared to some companies, a great place to work.  If you want the "perfect" job, I guess you will never be happy.  Sometimes you just need to be realistic and a little less spoiled.
