Glad to hear you are happy.

In Reply to: I am always amazed to read what others put here about TTS - TTSer and happy

Maybe they save this behavior for their ICs. There is no reason for me to lie. They are threatening in the way they DEMAND that you work a set schedule, even though one is SUPPOSED to be an IC.

The micromanaging comes in when as an IC you don't log in exactly at the SCHEDULED time to work.

Bottom line, TTS does not respect the law when it comes to IC workers. Period. They will eventually be dealt with if they do not begin to follow the law.

Thanks! I'm glad to hear that, I didn't think anyone used it anymore! I'm glad to hear so
I'll definitely check them out!
Glad to hear
you have another job already. Flossie is definitely a backstabber who will pretend to be your friend and then stab you when you least expect it.
Glad to hear it.
Wasn't sure from the way you worded your post.
I am glad to hear you say that...(sm)
It is nice to see someone with a professional attitude such as yours. I have just seen so much trashing of employers around here that it is no wonder that many times MTs are not taken seriously.
Glad to hear you are not looking any further at them...sm
FutureNet Technologies is a great place you may want to consider. Their pay is always on time and always correct. No benefits but the staff is great, pay is great and pay is on time and correct - that is benefit enough for me.

Glad to hear you are not looking further into Superior Global. It will save you a lot of headaches.

Hope you find a great place to call home!
Sorry to hear about the job, but glad
I am glad to hear about MDI-MD
Just starting there!  I hope everything works out with this company. 
Glad to hear that!
I know some people LOVE it. Not me. Maybe if they'd keep the bad dictators off of it, but they're now putting everyone on it. You might be flying through 1 or 2 reports, and then all of a sudden get someone who definitely does not belong on VR. That messes up your line count for the whole day. Plus getting 30% less in pay. Like I said, I've only been doing this for 1 month, but my line count for VR has only gone up on average 30 lines daily. My straight-typing line count has gone down 40 lines daily. How could that be? These companies are messing with the statistics to make VR look better than it actually is, all the while paying less to the Transcriptionist for both VR and straight typing. I'm making now with VR(cpl)what I made in 1997 when I first was hired to work at home via internet. At least I have a job. Still, I feel defeated.
I'm glad to hear that
I just accepted a job with them.  I sent them a resume about 1-1/2 weeks ago, did not do the testing on that day because I didn't have time. Did testing last Saturday, called them on Monday and talked to the receptionist. Was thinking of giving them another call very soon but today they called me.  Good luck! 
Glad to hear this.
Happy to hear that KS will not be giving in to Transcend. I don't care what kind of ranking they have, offshoring is bad news for us.

Between VR and offshoring, we will all end up at flea markets hocking our wares...but then again...you have to pay rent to get a table at the flea market. No money for that. Oh well.

I have too many fat rolls to work a corner. The gobs and gobs of folks in other industries who have lost jobs have already taken the fast food jobs. Guess I really need to come up with a plan.

Regarding the companies losing millions each year...I don't get it either.

Glad to hear that!
LOL, I keep wondering when the 'honeymoon' will end because it's just so astonishingly fantastic working there. I keep thinking it's too good to be true, but posts like yours help convince me that it is like being in MT heaven working for TT!!!
I'm rather glad to hear that, thanks!
I was suspicious because normally HR/recruitment personnel use their real name and their posts are MUCH more professional, such as thanking everyone for their interest, etc.

Glad to hear this may not be legitimate, because if it was, it would have been, IMO, a negative reflection on the company.

I was so glad to hear this!! They are a decent

a decent company despite the posts here.

Good for you! I am glad to hear that you
are a good recruiter, having no idea who you are, was only relaying MY experiences.  Sorry for those, such as you, who do your job well.  I have lost thousands of dollars depending on what was told to me by recruiters, and that is a fact.  If I would not have listened to the out and out lies, simple questions like, Will such and such an abbreviation Expander work with your system? and was told yes, when they had no clue if it would or not after I was hired and quit my other job.  As I said, good for you for being on the up and up and doing your job well.  And I agree, if I could quit MT today, I would run away as fast as I could!!!  Not only is your job thankless, but apparently OURS are TOO!!! Or at least I am given that impression but more than just ONE company!!!!!!
Glad to hear something good about them,
Be glad you didn't hear.
Why? Stella and crew are psychopaths. You will pay them to use their software license to boot, won't be included in your contract, unless of course, my experience with them has changed that. I have a horror story to tell with this company, believe me.

The most controlling and thorougly unprofessional MTSO I have ever had the displeasure to work with. No wonder they are advertising...they can't keep good MTs.

Glad to hear that. Welcome aboard!
so glad to hear that MTing has been sm
brought down to a profession of chump change by the newbies.
so glad to hear that MTing has been sm
brought down to a profession of chump change! You do the profession proud. NOT!
Thank you! I am glad to hear that there is clinic work with SM

That's great - glad to hear you got response
I'm glad you posted a followup as I was wondering how it was going for you.
glad to hear there is still a good company out there...
I am glad to hear that, I start training with them tomorrow.
Don't sweat it. Be glad you didn't hear back.
I am glad someone is happy there! Not many were. :-)nm
I am glad it is going well and you are happy, ME TOO! nm
Glad you are happy

I just quit a job with VR too and found a small local service with no VR.  In the first 10 minutes of just getting used to working on the new platform & fooling around, I made $4.30, so I am extremely hopeful that I will once again earn a living wage.

The sad thing is, I actually ENJOYED the VR and learning something new.  I thought it was fun and a breeze whenever I would get a decent report (very rarely).  However, a BIG HOWEVER, I did NOT enjoy getting 3 cpl for VR when I had to edit the living CRAP out of it and it would have been faster just to transcribe it.  There were too many MTs on the system trying to train it and it was a nightmare.  3 cents per line is INSULTING.  What was I thinking even taking that job?  I guess I am too willing to give the benefit of the doubt to some people.  I blame myself for being STUPID and I learned my lesson well.

I quit that job a few weeks ago and am EXTREMELY HAPPY that I did so.  I have hope once again!  It's an AWESOME feeling. 

I thought it was just me, glad to hear others aren't making much with all the junk you have to ad
So glad to hear all the positive feedback and I also accepted a position with them
Glad you're happy, but. . .
if I may ask, who did you go with to work as an IC?
I'm glad you're happy with your pay cut...
but I'm not and do not feel that I've been over-paid. I felt that I was paid fairly under the old compensation plan for what I do and feel that I work very hard and should continue to be paid accordingly for my efforts. As I said in my post, I have always felt that Transolutions was a good place to work, and I also appreciate the intangible perks that they have offered in the past. However, at this point I do not feel that they are treating all of their people equally or fairly, and I guess I am not enough of a company man to take a paycut in any job. Someone on this board asked about the company, and I felt it was only fair to explain some of the things that I've noticed recently and to answer some of her questions that may not be answered during the interview process of any MT company. These boards are not always the most positive places, I realize, and I've never been one to be drawn into the negativity; however, this poster asked a question that I felt compelled to answer honestly and from my heart.

I will NEVER take a cut in pay in any job, as I know that I work very hard at what I do and am smart enough to demand that I be paid a fair wage. I took a paycut to get into medical transcription 5 years ago so I could stay home with my children, but that was my choice and not because of a numbers game that someone else was playing with my paycheck. I think if you asked 100 people if they'd like to take a pay cut because they've been overpaid for the last few years, 99% of them would say NO WAY, not to mention that in this day and age, most of them could not afford it.

I can also tell you that there is more than just one account where people took a pay cut, some people much more than others.

p.s. I also know my stuff and have NEVER gone below 98% on my QA, usually 99% or 100%, until the last 2 months. I also heard in the last phone conference that I was not the only person who had noticed the change. I guess you're just smarter than most people.

I plan to wait it out a couple more paychecks and see how things wash out, as I really have enjoyed working for Transolutions for the most part. I agree that they have some good people and good accounts, but sometimes companies make decisions that are more important to their bottom line than to their current employees, so I guess we'll have to see how this numbers game plays out.
I'm glad you are happy and have found a fit.
A happy MT is a productive MT. Yes, the platform is good. Have a good and productive night!
While I am glad you are happy, the part about
everyone starting at 8 cpl is not true. Thought I would point this out, as this could definitely turn off many applicants.  They might say they start everyone at 8 cpl, but they definitely will offer more than that depending on the applicant.  Everything in life is negotiable, particulary when hiring on.   So, in case there are MTs reading, who are interested in KS, but who won't accept 8 cpl, give it a shot!
Glad you're happy but....sm
Happiness is a subjective state of mind. So just so I understand your happiness versus what my happiness is I have these questions:

Do they pay enough to live on? Or to put it differently, are you making at least 4K a month? Because that is what it would take to make me happy.

If you are making that kind of money, how many hours are you putting in? If you say you must put in long hours, that is not my happiness. I don't want to have to have a chair-ectomy when I am through for the day.

So if your happiness fits into my version of happiness then I am happy.
Glad you're happy - however,

how can you say most MT's are happy with their gig?  How do you know that?

The world of medical transcription is changing rapidly and the picture is not as rosy as it once was - in fact, pretty bleak -  so just beware - your time may come.

Hope it doesn't, but it may.

I am glad to hear that a lot of money can be made with MT work. This gives me hope for the future.
Glad you are happy there LTMT!!! You and I were hired
I never could make that work, so went to Transtech instead. I had suggested for you to go to Keystrokes, because I worked there for a very short time and knew they were wonderful. I just wanted to touch base and let you know that I have thought of you and glad you finally found a company which appreciates you. For me, I reapplied to Keystrokes, but because I left them previously (it was a second job and I could not do 2 jobs full time), they have only responded that they got my resume, and they never again offered me a position. You are lucky to be in a good place, and I am very glad to hear things have worked out... all things happen for a reason! All the best... from your friend from the E-trans plus days...
Glad you are happy. You making good money there? sm
as well?
Glad you're happy, that place has gone WAY DOWNHILL.
I am so happy to hear your post.
I have been with them a week now and have been getting discouraged.  Tech problems yesterday and only 6 reports in 3 hours.  I hope it picks.  Listening to you makes me feel lots better.
I honestly am very glad you're happy! I juggled 2 nationals for a while, and it was exhausting.
Though if I could, I would probably go back to Spheris. Long story there, but probably would not be rehired as I never made it thru training. Just trained with the biggest bunch of, well, MTs. If one more person clapped those little hand icons at some lame joke, I thought I would vomit. Actually did vomit...I was very ill, and just folded...Get rid of the clapping hand icons!!! 
Glad you're happy -- I love MDI-MD too, although I missed out on the signup bonus. :( nm
Sten-Tel...any QAs here work there? If so, how is it? I'd be happy to hear from ya:D nm
Congrats to you -- always nice to hear from someone who is happy with his/her choices. :-) nm


YEAH for you! Nice to hear a happy ending.
I thought of you today. You posted once a fave website with a alphabetical Genus species list. I used it today as it is saved in my faves and it is only listed as HAYSEED! I wondered how you were...

Glad to hear!
Anyone that applied with Kathy Kirby hear anything yet? I am wondering how long it takes to hear a
response back
I am so glad, so very glad that finally I have reached
the age that if we are low on work, I just take off. No problem at all and love the extra day or so off. I now have worked since the 70s and finally made to retirement age, get SS plus other retirement money coming in and thank the good Lord do not have to worry about if there is work or not. BTW, when I worked inhouse never ran out of work ever, only when transferring out to company do they run out of work. If I had to raise a family now I would most certainly cross train on other accts at my place but only have 1 that I work on, by choice.
I said MAY NOT hear, didn't say you wouldn't hear. There is
a difference, and many people have said they knew they didn't do well on the tests, but still feel like they should have heard from companies and haven't. 
Happy New Year. May we all have happy home lives (sm)
and do whatever it takes to make our work lives work for us too. 
Hear, hear! (Or is it 'here, here?') LOL

Right and told we should be happy we have jobs. Not too happy right now.
