There is not 1 person on this board that
is for me. If I get out of a job, are you going to take me in and pay my bills? I donít think so. Everyone can do what they like. We are in a country that says so. Do what you want and take care of your own self. I am not responsible for you and your families and it works both ways. I have raised a family and it is me time now, finally. It is a glorious time when I do not have to worry about others all the time. I cannot help what this profession has turned into. I am not my sister's keeper here.
help on the word board please!!!

Go check word board for your help. nm
Go scan the word help board
Grab a cup of coffee, a bowl of popcorn, whatever. Just read. Asking what a TAH-BFO is. A lab collie. A CPC with elevated white count. Enjoy, wallow in it, and then get back to me on what a US MT would know and wouldn't know.
You need to read the ad on Job Seekers board for QA person. huh? nm
Called the labor board - LM overnited check after fooling around for a month or 2...nm
Confidential? Interesting word to use on this board.
I didn't see anyone's name, nor did I see any specific examples given. This person has the same rights to say what they think or feel, just as an MT does.
He posted comments on the word board
on Jan 25 that there was a lot of misinformation about his company and then made the statement about people going to the source to find out the truth.  I think he and empty pockets may be fast friends.
I thought the famous co on this board had that
I thought on the job board, you had to give
Did this rule change, since there are no more sponsors? I would think that once they know they have to put the name up top most of these scams and out-of-USA posts would stop right away.
Thought I put on the wrong board and thanks
for this posting. Now I have the information I wanted. When the above posting talked about the employer, I was asking about the independent person- was not asking about employer and what they are supposed to do. This posting helps me out. Thanks again.
Oops, thought I was on Main Board.
thought you might be interested in this, taken from the main board
It is a horrible story that is becoming almost the norm...

I was told today by a national transcription company that due to my lack of experience in the last eight years.... that I was unqualified to work for them as they need people with recent acute care status. I have worked for a group of orthopaedic surgeons for eight years and went to work for them because my job at the hospital was phased out due to outsourcing. I have 36 years of experience as a Transcriptionist and all but the last eight were in a hospital setting. I am shocked to find out that I do not qualify for their company. The work at our clinic is dwindling and even though they are hiring three new docs this coming year, none of them are going to be allowed to dictate as they will be required to use the EMR only. All of us sit by our desks waiting for that next job to show up and hopefully if you are lucky enough, you are the one who grabs it first. I used to work every evening and weekend. That has happened in the last five months. Sorry for the venting. It has been a tough struggle with a laid...
I dont think that the act of insulting a person whether on a board or in life is no way to treat any
This is sad - I never thought that THE OWNER OF THIS board would support offshoring - sm
or should I say embrace offshoring. My husband and I have lost jobs to offshoring. Our one son has had to drop classes and has to go an extra two years to college because we cannot afford to send him full time because of the loss of our jobs and having to take dramatic pay cuts. I am with two transcription services without benefits. My hospital job was contracted to C-Bay, which as you know, is an Indian based company. I could go on and on, but I won't.

I have been on this board for three years and have enjoyed, learned, shared, and bonded on this site. This is such a let down that I actually cried over this. I thought I had a place to vent and share and learn with other transcriptionists. I enjoyed knowing that I could sign on with a company that posted on this website knowing that the company did not offshore. But that is no longer the case.

I wish my fellow transcriptionists the best of luck in holding on to their homes and lives and jobs. I can no longer support or be a part of something that offshores. I have lost too much both personally and financially to offshoring.

It is with great sadness that I leave this site. Thank you.
I must've gotten lost--thought this is an adult board
Go back to your friends at MySpace...you'll fit in better there.
Actually, I thought advertisers on the job board had to disclose the name of the company, but

maybe I am mistaken.

geesh, I thought the main board hosted the nasty trolls
MedQuisters, topics from the Company board are being moved to the MedQuist board. MQ posts on

the first page of the Company board will be removed to open up space for other companies to post.  Enjoy the new Medquist board set up for you.

Thank you,


Wow. You thought that was rude? I didn't see any name calling or condescending
attitude like a lot of other people's posts. No, Sara Beth and Billy Bob did not ask a legitimate question. It was a flame attempt and you're helping to fuel the fire.
Didn't you post this on 03/04/06 on both the Company Board and the Hospital/Clinic MT Board?


This was moved from main board to company board. Replies don't transfer. nm
This is the Company Board. You should have posted on tech board. nm
there is a board for local talk. this is company board. thx
Posted on wrong board. Plz see Seekers board.
Sorry! Wrong board. Reposted on Main board. NM
There is a comedy board...put your remarks on that board. nm
Then this is the "Unprofessional" MT board. Pulic board,
I can't give you the name of the message board, but it is not a free message board (HINT). There
Monitor, I hope this post is okay.
You already have your own board. Now you want a board for the ones who leave??
It's a little thing called TAT and they have a new person I think in charge.
Acusis has something called Word script. I think
Hope you are right. I would have thought some people would have been called by now and might know
what is going on. I just have a feeling SE might become part time employee but I hope not. That would limit the hours we could work. You still have to wonder if Spheris is in the picture and they have no IC or SE do they? Dont think so.
But I thought that was not Word-based. Is it? nm
What's a "company in amusement?" nm
About the post from "Company Manager" below
I also work with her at that company and she is correct about providing an up to date list to the operation department. It is done on daily basis and fortunately usually only changes when new people come on board, not when they leave because people love working here including me! Low turnover except for new employees. This is my only national MT job I have had-- hospital for six years, and I love it. I just lucked out my first time around. Good luck in your job search.
Ok, ok, I meant "company". Yikes! :) nm
Never Not on this board.
I'm on this board again because I keep
I've been donig this for 10 years and can't remember running out this time of the year.  Is anyone else slow. 
Sorry, this should have been on the MQ board. nm
probably more for another board, but...
In response to the posts about Christmas, I remember the good old days when the Jewish radiologist I worked for took the whole staff out for a big Christmas dinner and gave us all generous bonuses. We in turn gave him and his wife Hanukkah gifts. It's called mutual respect and being big enough to accept and respect each others' differences without taking away anyone's right to celebrate according to their own beliefs.
Where is the MQ board? (SM)
See the links to specialty boards to the left. Medquist is the 4th link from the top.

TT's ads all over job board!!!
Look on the job board
someone on this board once said that they (sm)
give you a line raise after you are taken off 100% QA.  I was never told that and did not get it. 
Board changes (SM)
We have condensed the number of board forums to reduce the confusion on where to post what topics.

You can view archives of any of the removed forums by clicking on the Home button at the bottom left and then scrolling to the end of the web page.

If your topic does not have a specific board currently, the Main board will accommodate it.

Thank you.


there was a job on the other board sm
that was paying 7 cpl for MT and part time supervisor. I don't think so.
I was just on the La. board looking for La. MTs.

I never see any postings from MTs of Louisiana and when I asked a question concerning LA MTs I would never get an answer.  What part of Louisiana are you located.  Do you work as an IC or employee or for a hospital?  I have been trying to get an estimate on what Louisiana MTs are paid as I think the amount that I was told by the hospital was too low.

If it is the one from the Job board

Then that is Terry and they are out of St. Louis MO.  I currently work for them.  Good company to work for.  Terry is very enthusiastic about MT.  I enjoy the accounts, very low ESL if that is a selling point for you.  We also have always had plenty of work and if ever I've run out I just let Terry know and she hooks me up with another account to fill my time. 


MQ has their own board because they are the
BIGGEST MTSO. Spheris will not allow employees to post anywhere anytime anything about them. Spheris joined up with Indian forces long, long ago in a HUGE volume. I have even read articles from Indian papers and Spheris, with Spheris wanting to reduce its US workload by half at least in order to use Indian labor. I have heard Spheris pay per line is very low. Not putting MQ up on a pedestal.  I have worked for both, and Spheris is evil #1, though they keep a very low secretive profile.
I just saw on the job board
@ mtjobs.com QDPRN allows the choice of Word or Wordperfect also. So there seems to be companies out there still using Word.
