funny haha??
Actually the funny thing was that there was always just one I like them post - not that you would not use your name. I am glad you had no bad experiences, like I said that is one. No personal problem here - I put my running shows on some time ago. Sorry you took things so personally - was not my intention.
haha (but not really funny, it is sad). You can do so much better...(no message)
Haha! all too funny! sounds
like they require no experience on the executive level as well!

question - they don't pay for headers but who's to say they really don't charge for them?
Haha -- took me awhile, but I finally got it .. funny. nm

You're funny! nm

You're funny. Where in heck do you get your info? (sm)
They are not rapidly going to AVR or whatever you called it.  Doctors at many hospitals refuse to use it, and so it's about half AVR and half transcribing.  Probably will stay that way for quite awhile.  You know, many of those doctors are old dogs like me.  A good MT will always have work to transcribe.  If you only do American accents, you might have a harder time.
You're right, I wasn't! (Funny how when a subject
can change what it was intended to say!) I meant that the MTSO was crying the ol' crocadile tears about poor us, we need more workers, gotta go to India to get 'em. Oh, REALLY? I agree with the above poster's sentiments who suggested she move to India. She'd have lots of like company there... snake-oil salesmen & shysters.
Haha Hey, I know! ....
I'm not the pro-Spheris or pro-MQ cheerleader everyone thinks I am.

There are some items that could definitely use some tweaking or revamping!

Oh ok...haha....sm

I was about to say Hey, where is my downtime pay?  But that sounds like you have a great set-up with your job....at least you know you will get some sort of pay.  Too bad everyone doesn't get that! 



Sorry, but I thought I was the only one living in BFE...LOL.
Medquist is now owned by Indians. I think people just left before they were let go down the road.
Sure, come here and keep it quiet. haha sm

haha, I think she just did, on this board!
haha - if it says "USA", then it's probably
Funny how all the people who claim to think VR is the greatest, simplest thing since the microwave also come back later to state that they have alternate sources of income. Based on their postings, I suspect some of their other income comes from writing fiction.
HaHa...you are contradicting yourself
You just said that you were supposed to start working around noon the other day. Why would you have to send an email saying that you would be starting late if you don't have a schedule? You are contradicting yourself.

I am done with the back and forth with you. If you like working for them, good for you. ICs are not supposed to be locked into a schedule like an employee. If you were truly an IC, there would be no need to email anyone to tell them that you were going to be starting 'late'.

The only reason an IC should have to email them is if they were not able to work at all on a particular day.

They are breaking the law and they will be dealt with. Me and one other person in this thread have worked there and been treated like an employee when we were ICs. I am sure there are others.
HAHA DUH...Guess what?
Those MTSO recruiters take valuable time to sift through hundreds of applications to try to pick out the most qualified, best 'fit' for an account. At what point do you feel that perhaps someone of perhaps a little less experience but a lot more flexibility didn't have her application tossed off the pile to make room for YOUR just-for-curiosity application?

You waste people's time, resources and money when you apply willy-nilly just to see 'what's out there' when the job market is so desperate right now.

So, I'm afraid that VERY mature DUH, HAHAHAHA is back on YOU, my fellow MT.

I'm not the one wasting everyone's time applying for jobs I really don't want when I'm happy where I'm at.

Haha! I can too! ANY defense at all of such
And might I just add, what slimy little WORMS all suits really are! They sell their integrity and their souls for their do-nothing jobs in an already top-heavy industry. Considering the mood of their workforce these days, I'd actually be SCARED to be one of them right now.
Yes, MQ has known all these years. My typo!! Haha
20% increase in production - haha!
haven't they been repeating over and over to you that you WILL see a 20% increase in production RIGHT AWAY!! after you conquer DQS then they're going to throw ASR at you and swear up and down that you'll have a 25% in production and they're going to cut your baseline rate by 20% to become a Medical Editor -- doesn't that sound just peachy!! i recalculated my last check with my MT work and my ME work and it came out to be $50 less because of the 20% decrease on my baseline rate for the honor of doing ME work (i have until 10/1/05 before the cut takes place). Oh, but you have your choice of doing 100% MT work and keeping your baseline rate, but guess what you'll be getting the docs that the voice recognition system can't do, therefore, you will probably see a 25% decrease in production. Heck, now as it is, the VR program can't pick up the little words like an, and, in, etc right and it's even leaving out very, very clear words that a very, very clear dictator is saying, so you figure how you're going to have a 25% increase on production when you're pecking nonstop on the keyboard like when you first started typing on a manual typewriter?? Tell me again, how grateful we're supposed to be for working at MQ? And, yes, I know I can go to MTJobs.com and find another job, but you know what, there's principles and if we just walk away from how we're being treated we're just going to be treated like that at another MQ-like company. Something needs to be done so they know that we don't appreciate being treated like someone with a 5th grade education.
haha - actually I kinda' like it better as a DO-DO list! nm
Thanks so much for you message...haha...just curious
since they expect perfection do they pay okay?  THANKS!!
no idiot, been there and they suck haha
Let me know when you wanna play with the big people. On one job, I make $23/h plus incentive. Full benes. 20 weeks PTO/yr. Second job REAL IC pays 11 cpl including headers/spaces. Now, who is jealous? Not that you would admit it. LOL. Now, go make your hard earned sucky money LOL
Haha! LMAO! Right! What is PHASING?????nm
Yes, here you go, toodle-loo and fly a kite! Haha, nm
Haha!! Brilliant move!!
I did the same thing once when I worked in-house. The cherry-picker ended up being written-up. That's the way it should be. The good employees should have a fair shake of things. Too bad people like sm will defend them. Yes, revenge is sweet LOL. Justice!
Yes we are on the same page, you used better words tho. haha

haha! Good one... no you got it wrong sm
I typed 200 lines an hour easily.........not slow. You sound like a salaried TTS'er or the owner. That's why there are always mixed reviews. The relatives and people with skin in the game post positive information.
haha, good luck, you'll need it!
haha, exactly the same for me...no work, no one cared..(no message)
haha, you are the one who sounds angry and bitter...
Don't worry about me or what you think I should do or need to do. I still have every right to express my opinion on this board, and you again are being rude and typical of 'your' profession.

Again, I believe medical care should not be a business. That sounds ludicrous to me. People without insurance cannot have access to health care...and people like you do not care.

We get it already, now perhaps you can go bother someone else. You are really starting to get repetitive and rude.
Teehee!!!! HAHA LOL! I feel like I am treated that way sometimes. sm

As for how I know my accuracy...

I have QA bonuses.  You have to pull up 99% or better on audit to get it AND send under a certain percentage to QA in full.

NO I am NOT the only OP specialist we have.  If you don't see OPs it is probably because they go to us first and if we finish, you don't have any of them in the general pools.

Haha yen, love your post and agree completely with what you say!

The above poster wasn't me. I'm the LOL from above. Two separate posters - haha
Yeah.. I second the motion. I lasted a day before I had a breakdown haha..
It was awful. Way too many screens to open up just to get going or do perform any task. That right there will always be their downfall. I'm sure if they had a better platform they would get a lot of better responses to job openings. JMO
notice the words "in my opinion" haha...WMX was awful for me
you are not going to bully me, I got enough of that at WMX
ps: Please excuse typos! "Hands-working-faster-than-brain syndrome!" haha (nm)
Hope you're enjoying those slave wages you're earning.
So you guys feel you're getting paid what you're worth with VR?
I'm not trying to be snarky. I've never done VR, so I'm trying to understand.

You're happy with your paycheck with VR? Do you find the files to be as bad as the original post implied?
Just be rude..out and out rude so they have just cause to "fire" you.. haha..What a bunch of i
Who would want to work for incompetent people like that. Time to change your phone numbers. They are like bad stalkers.
So you're telling me, basically, they're bad news?
They offered me 0.095/line and you know - it sounded too good to be true, but I SWEAR the recruiter told me they do not outsource. Oh brother... I just wish they'd be honest. I really don't know what to do.
Not the OP, but they're supposed to take out all the other taxes as you're an employee with th
No, they're not losing money....they're gaining!
If a company charges their clients by the line, I'm sure that line rate does not go down even though the MTs pay does.

ASR pays about 2/3 normal line rate to its MTs. Their ultimate goal is to have the MTs do twice as much work. Therefore, the client is getting their work faster, but paying their normal rate, while corporate gets that money and the MTs get the lower line rate.

Whether the newbies want to realize it or not, MTSOs have not increased MTs' salaries in the past 10 years. They still start out at the same pay as the last century!

This used to be a very lucrative profession. Nowadays, most MTs are considered to be paid at the poverty level. You don't believe me, look it up!
Hey, you're in luck then. They're hiring! (nm)
If they're in Nebraska, they're www.medigrafix.com nm
If you're an IC, you pay all your taxes. Otherwise you're an SE or employee. nm
If you're PT you're required to work

8 of your hours in one weekend day.  There's no extra pay for it though. 

The face we're wising up is exactly why they're
