Excuse me, so you are saying that in order to (sm)

In Reply to: I am amazed by how many ungrateful MTs there are - my 2 cents

get a raise in this business and be compensated correctly for years of knowledge and medical terminology, that we have to increase our speed?

Ummm...NO! In 12 years of doing this profession (and I choose to so someone else is not raising my kids - and don't you dare call that a benefit either because it is harder) I have NEVER gotten a raise.

I should be compensated for the 12 years of knowledge that I have, not told be work faster and harder. Every other profession does that - REWARDS THEIR WORKERS FOR THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE.

It is not a matter of being selfish and want, want, want. It is a matter of what is right and wrong.

Not the only one. My co has gag order too.
What do you mean by out of order?
Do they offer IC or employee status, full and/or part time? Just curious. With respect to the out of order comment, do you mean disorganized?
Out of order
By out of order I mean she was downright rude when I suggested that I would like to work with my text Expander and dictionaries rather than theirs.
ETP has a gag order on the employees
and few privately.
Unfortunately in order to make any
money, you have to be the MTSO.  If you apply with nationals and the people who have the accounts, you are not going to make the big money, they are, otherwise, why would they need you.  It is very unfortunate, but it is true. 
Me, too! And to think I joined DRC in order to get away - nm
That's because they have a gag order on employees
when you hire on, you have to agree not to talk about them on the internet and give them permission to read your mail if they want to see what you write. Also, you agree not to participate in any kind of union activity. This all happened after they hired some consultants to restructure their business practices...and one of the owners even canned his MIL. Fun at family get togethers, huh?

You might get some private emails, but you won't see anything posted in public by current employees.
That is probably a tall order with only
the new world order
Welcome to life at Acuspheris
court order?
Terri Davis is gone by court order? How? Why? Such dish!

Who's the businessman running the place?

More info is needed! Totally interested now!
They probably have a gag order on their employees - nm
Keystrokes, Execuscribe, MDI-MD in no particular order. nm
8 cpl isn't a 'tall order' even for a newbie. It's not
US MT's are paid so little per line that in order to
reports as possible, and the faster you go, the more junk is likely to be produced. I try to proofread everything I produce, but when my tenancy is on the chopping block and the rent is overdue, I type as fast as I can, don't proofread, and hope for the best. It's all about survival.
QA must have heard it in order to edit it sm
They knew the sound quality was bad. They had to know. I worked somewhere where the doctors dictated on a tape recorder and then played it into the phone. It was a nightmare and when I said anything, they said they could hear it fine. It was not fine at all.
It was distant, the volume was low and it was fuzzy.
Other than through a court order!!!! Never said the info was NEVER given out at all! nm
Do you have to be local to their office in order to work for them? nm
I know you need to type 1800 lines a day in order to get 11 cpl.
correction..."in order to work as an MT in the US"
Emails daily regarding TAT, order of work
it's usually first thing in morning; then the auto-generated emails regarding STATS. Otherwise, it's *no news is good news.*

It would seem strange to get no communication at all.
Your point? They have to obey a court order. nm
hmm, strange huh? You are right, wrong order of business seems to me nm
p.r.n. (and search won't allow periods in order get the right company)
Is the other company in Ohio as well?
She said she's going through the resumes in chronological order and is kind of swamped right now.
No, we did not give out information. No court order involved. sm
Obviously, TT was able to look at the information provided in the posts and determine who they FELT were making the posts.

No information has been given out by MTStars on this situation whatsoever.

Move on.


MQ has required a 40-hour commitment for years, in order to get benefits. nm
My understanding was that in order to receive Medicare/Medicaid payment sm
providers will be required to have EMR.
From of the tone of these posts, perhaps an early morning drink would be in order. sm

I'm not saying I do not sympathize with the no-work situation.  I have been gone from TT for almost 2 years now, and it happened back then (without the holiday as an excuse) and will continue to happen will be my prediction.  Being called sweetie and told you rock doesn't butter the bread. 

You have the right idea, though ... relax, enjoy the holiday.  I plan an afternoon on the patio relaxing with a friend and some margaritas ... hold the omelet and bring on the guacamole. 

They sold off their equipment a month ago in order to stop chasing it down. It was practically giv
wave pedal $50. They were spending a full time person on sending and getting back equipment. I bought mine, and thought it was better than some that make you rent them or buying my own.
I just counted my specialties list. There are 37 that roll in at any time in no order:) Nice huh?
uh, and you did a little throat jumping yourself there - mail-order bride? broom closed?
maybe send a written notice requesting a money order or other recourse to the company??...nm
I gave notice and was told had to work final weeks in order to be eligible for rehire. Had no
Excuse me.....what?
we need more details please.
Excuse me, but...
I would say 200 million in DEBT is pretty much going down the tubes.  HS was a great place to work, but Spheris leaves much to be desired.  I won't even dignify your last comment with a response. lol  I was with HS since the very early days, so I am sure I was with the same company longer than you were, as I just recently left myself.  Oh wait, every company I ever left? Let's see, 8 years at one and 7 years at the other one.  I would say that was a pretty good track record, dear.  Sorry you had to make it personal.
Excuse me? But where, exactly did
I simply expressed that radiology and pathology will always be around and need to be transcribed and that the school sounds like the cost is too much. Where am I missing the bullying/harass?
excuse me? you don't know me...sm

ooh - someone woke up nasty or stayed nasty all day, huh?

IF you are presuming to know me, you're coming out of left field...and you have a choice - you did not have to respond.......

Go enjoy your weekend - hope it doesn't rain anymore on your parade.......          


Excuse me! Wow.
Excuse me? If I say they did, they did. I ought
to know. My start date was the 1st of the month. Actually my first payday was supposed to be in the bank the 15th of the next month. So do not tell me NEVER when it happened to me. I also know others it happened to also. I do not post things that are not true. I have all of that information and the emails that went with it saved so if you want to post an untruth and say it never happened, you don't know what you are talking about or your memory has lapsed...depending on which KS MT or mgmt person you are. You won't intimidate me dearie, not when my bank account is the best proof along with the documents that support it.
another excuse
I worked for a company that said they maile dchecks Tuesday but it was postmarked friday, and the best excuse was that their bank had an error and they had to wait to send checks, and when they went out - they bounced, so another week or two before the money actually came - anybody ever have dealings with a bank that in themiddle of having the account they began holding your checks for mor etime - usually that is beacuse you bounced to many outgoing, so they hold your deposits - but as MT we are stupid and must believe the hype. I say if a check bounces, press charges, show them we mean business, and if oay is late - tack on surcharges, after all you are contracted for work and pay date is part of the contract. there should be no ecuses, we are not allowed any room for our TAT, we work very hard for the money
There is no excuse for this
The company I work for I don't have to rely on the dictaphone website for my line count where I work now, I look under the sessions stats which are DISABLED on your system. Even if there is a lag there is no excuse for the awful line count, the line count lag has nothing to do with your production. You can put all the shortcuts you want in but your're still gonna work your fingers to the bone. I do about 270 lines/hr now, where I used to do about 150 there if that and that was really struggling. When there is that much descrepancy then I have to wonder what the difference is. Headers and footers are not counted on the account I work on either. Hope things have changed for your sake, if so, thats just great and i wish you luck!
Excuse me but...
I am not the one calling someone small minded. I do fit in at DSG. It is a great place to work if you are a dedicated hardworking MT, so thanks for the compliment and good luck with your job hopping. Hope company #26 will be able to please you.
Well, excuse me!!!!
make roughly $15 an hour? But you REFUSE to do high ESL's. I am glad to know that you can find a job and be able to REFUSE work and make your coworkers pull the load. HEY, KSMT2, how does that make you feel? LMAO. You two are a joke!!!!!!
That's always the excuse

You must not have met their standards.  No, they are just a lousy, disorganized company.  They did not meet my standards, and I am not the only one.  There are many MTs who have had the same exact experience.  This is not new information.

To Excuse me?
Well stated!
Excuse me????
Who do you think you are to say this has never happened to me?  I have been an MT for 20 years!!    Aren't you doing the same thing as the cherry pickers by whining about the crappy report you got?  You guys actually look up the job to see if someone dumped it?  Are you that pathetic as well that you can't handle transcribing the thing either?  It boils down to this - If you are good, not a single report will slow you down.  If you are a terrible MT who only can do easy reports, well, I could care less what you throw back in the pile.  If my child happened to see a doc who was ESL and an MT started whining about getting the crappy report and spent even a second trying to see if someone was cherry picking - well, I would fire their lazy butt!!  All I'm saying is do the darn reports and quit worrying about people who cheat, they aren't any good anyway!   You guys call yourself MTs?  Please!  More like a bunch of babies!   This is why being an MT is no longer considered a profession.  There was a day when we cared about doing our part for the physicians and the patients.  Now we have a bunch of typists complaining and whining.  We actually used to get paid very well!  I can see why rates have gone down - there aren't any real MTs out there anymore. 
Excuse me?
You guys are such a joke! 
Excuse me?
When did I defend anyone?  No wonder you get so upset about having to do the lousy reports, you can't even read!   This is a waste of time.  Have fun being paranoid....wah...wah...everyone else is getting the good reports....poor us!    Sheesh!
Excuse me?

I say again - you can't read nor do you understand the definition of words.  Ignore means refusing to take notice of or to reject.  if does not mean to defend.  MyGosh!  Please tell me you are not an MT?  You are just making it worse for yourself.  Give up now, ok?   

Excuse me? sm
I don't work for TT but, in my opinion,  if your statement rings true that lead MTs take/get work when others don't have any, that's gross mismanagement and should be delt with somehow, through emails to upper management. It's bad everywhere, low work, ASR lower wages, but there is no excuse for such behavior.
Always an excuse
Sounds my company.   Raises are as rare as hens teeth. I know that the economy is bad but they always try to find an excuse not to give us a decent raise.
