Debbie Hood is the HR person -- give her a call. nm

If you want to know the real scoop, always better to just ask.  Someone might pay me $20 a report (okay, in my dreams) and someone else something else.   I understand when people come here and want to know things a recruiter or HR person cannot or will not tell you, such as quality and quantity of dictation and dictators, reliability of being paid on time and such.  But if you want to know specifics of how much per report/line, what kind of bennies, direct deposit or no, etc ... why not just write an email or pick up the phone and ASK?


 


This is not meant to be rude or anything.  I just am curious.  When I signed on with a company, I saw posts saying 10 cpl was the ceiling and a bunch of other user-specific information that had nothing to do with what I was offered.  I made 11-1/2 cpl AND they paid my long distance.  A lot has to do with bargaining skills and what you have to offer.


 


JMO.


No, higher. I think like 6 or 6.5 cpl. I would call Debbie and ask her.

No one will post account names here. Call Debbie or your supervisor. nm

I'm sure if you call the office they would say why.

Why not call the office and ask them. THey have
been talking cheaper insurance for years. 
Why don't you just call the office and ask where
your piece of the pie is? I'm sure if you demand something you will get it!
Call the office - SM
We have a new HR person now. Just call the office and they will make sure that you are taken care of.
You need to call the office if you are finding this. They will fix it. They did for me and it has
great for the past 19 months since I did that.
Hardly ever happens. I suggest you call the office. (sm)
Must be a problem with your connection. 
Call their 800 office number and ask nm.
nm
They definitely don't take that long, so please call the office.

Agree....call the office and ask (sm)
for Becky, then tell her what is going on.
Call Becky at the office. 630-739-5520. She will have this
taken care of immediately.
Call the office and hopefully they will follow up with more work. nm

Why not call the corporate office / payroll? nm
.
Call Anthony at the office and let him know you are waiting or if you have sm
S. Cryer's email address, send an email to her and she will help you. She is the one who trained me. If this does not get deleted, it is scryer@softscript.com


That's a shame -- did you call the office? Maybe they sent your shirt to someone else sm

and they got the wrong size too.  Just a thought. 


Does anyone happen to have the number to call Amherst MQ office. Thanks much.
:
I would send in your resume or call the office. Some accounts do not
use phone lines at all and are internet only. My account is an 800# but I am not sure if there are any openings on my account.
I started 2 weeks to the day. I would call the office direct if I were you. sm
That does not sound right. Maybe the person you are working with dropped the ball. I would call the office. They are there until 5:30 or later on Fridays. (630)553-3680. This is not private info. It is on their ad.
Get proactive!!! Pick up the phone and call the office?? NM

I have been there 4 years and there are many happy MTs. Call the office, not the sour grapes on thi
ss
Talk to your leads or call the main office to see if you can get a backup account...
I have been there for over a year too and have always had plenty of work...
Last name Hood? lol nm

Can anyone from the Ohio MQ office give me a contact person and a phone number to call so I can talk
to someone there without getting a lot of other people involved before I find out what kind of accounts they have to offer. I am interested in transferring from my current office but would like to speak with someone up there first. Even an email address of someone would help.
Yes, they offer I think 4 weeks at full pay or 8 weeks at half pay. Call the office
and talk to them about it. You wont lose your job. They aren't like that.
The main office was in Bolingbrook but they built an office in Yorkville last fall. SM
I think that the owners live in Yorkville, so it was built close to their house. Nice office, just pretty far out.
Sue and Debbie
Maybe if Sue would actually LEAVE things would be okay, but right now the company is going downhill FAST. Debbie is back AGAIN and with her disorganization things will NEVER change.

If you want to be happy with where you work (at least most of the time) then you need to continue looking because these two companies are not the places to work. Think about it, why are they always hiring more and more people? Itís called HIGH TURNOVER!
when was Debbie gone??nm
q
You should ask Debbie
Any concern especially with regard to below.... ask.
Debbie
Is the air time card also called an express card? Do they have cards that you just pay a monthly fee for and not through your cell phone but like through a satellite dish or something?
Debbie is a schemer, nothing more!
I could swear when we first checked out her pay me to take surveys MLM scam site before she had previously worked at Bloomingdale's or Nordstroms, but I do not recall that she had worked there for 20 years or had worked anywhere for 20 years. Seems to me she had references from several people she had supposedly worked with from several different places all swearing up and down what a wonderful and qualified employee she was (too much so, if you get my drift). I don't recall ANY of those said jobs being QA positions, more like sales or clerical. She seems to have had a lot of jobs for someone her age who worked for 1 company for 20+ years.

My point here is that this gal was operating a pyramid scheme just a couple months ago. Her original site was Join here and pay $20 to take survey's about our MT business, and then refer people to me and you will get $5.00 per person who signs up under your name. I don't believe she is interested in any of this information being factual, she just wants to collect it (along with our personal data) so she can make money by selling it to God only knows whom, probably costing us our jobs or at the very least a whole lot of aggravation with e-mail boxes being filled with spam from other companies. Her only goal (in my opinion) is to make money in a marketing scheme. I guess she thinks the national MT companies are going to pay her for this data just because she collected it? She will claim its accuracy because she did a survey? I also find it odd that while she talks about QA this and QA that, it seems to me what she really means is quality control - and that is a big difference, odd she would not know the difference, isn't it?

Being a former Spheris employee myself, if she was as all that in the QA field, she should have started with them. I do wonder if she is still with them and, if not, then my guess is this is how she thinks she can make a living since, apparently, no other companies will have her?

One thing we all noted before, and it is rather apparent on her new site too, is that for someone who has been an MT for 3+ years and is supposedly as good as she claims herself to be, she sure makes a whole lot of errors.
You don't happen to know. Ask Debbie if you don't believe me! n/m
b
I am really not sure, but I would contact Debbie and just ask.
xs
her point is to thank Debbie.
nm
Did you ever see Debbie Downer on SNL?
x
Debbie is no longer the owner.
The previous COO from Heartland is now the President and COO! Watch out! Major outsource lover...
E-mail your supervisor or Debbie and ask them!! nm
xx
Debbie - please re-send the email
/
Debbie told me when she hired me
that she is more interested in the total line count than the hours. Pam I Yam and the other poster is correct - just put your regular shift instead of all the signing in and out stuff. The time card needs to show 40 hours but how many people take bathroom breaks and actually eat during the day? It's not a big deal!!!!! Put your regular shift in.
Just curious, is the MQ Nashville office the old Lanier office? nm
nm
I don't work in the office and never claimed to. I am just saying that since the new office open
October with everyone of the admin staff in one place, these problems do not occur any more.
Debbie - there IS a slight glitch on the 2nd page - sm
where after you complete it, and click on CONTINUE, you get a message in red at the top left-hand corner stating answering that question is required. (Even though it HAS been answered). I figured out to just hit exit survey at the top, but was not sure if my answers were recorded or not. Anyway, that might need to be fixed, because it might cause people to give up and not finish or send the survey.

Thanks for publishing it - GREAT idea!
I find it hard to believe that Debbie "promised" you
So is Transtech the first company you ever worked at that had slow periods? Didn't think so.
I hope Debbie "outs" the entire greedy -nm
)
Might I suggest that you adjust your hours a little and talk to Debbie. (sm)
see if that helps get you through the crunch.  I guarantee it won't last long.
Any current info on Debbie Hicks/Psychtrans?

Couldn't find anything in the archives that hadn't been deleted.  Any info on this person/company? Good/bad or otherwise? TIA

Can't get paid in the office if you don't work in the office.
JLG has MT's working at home, not in the office, not to mention working out of state.  The mail is the only way to get paid since they have temporarily suspended direct deposit.  The only ones getting paid on time are the ones that do work in the office, like the management and people answering the phone. 
Closed FW office, Indianapolis office too. nm

Yes, call waiting works. I also have call forwarding from my home line
