Hey KS Team Lead - I really think you should stop responding. You are making yourself

In Reply to: I don't work in the office and never claimed to. I am just saying that since the new office open - KS Team Lead

and your company look ridiculous and unprofessional to the extreme! If this is indicative of how KS does business, it's no wonder they are flat.

Too bad they got rid of Indian team leads. My US team lead is the worst.

As a former OSi team lead.....
I will say that the main reason I left the company is because I knew it was not right to ask people to work extra when they could not report it on their time sheets.  And, yes, an account coordinator, has definitely recently asked people to work extra but not report it.  This has been going on a long time.  Time should be recorded as time actually working not what you put on a time sheet.  That is ridiculous.  The majority of my MT's did work extra but did they get paid overtime?  No!  This is SO not right!!!   ');>
she did it while a team lead too
What exactly is a Team Lead?
team lead
You have it all figured out. How can I even respond to such brilliance. Until you understand what my job entails and how much I'm paid, might be smarter just to stay quiet. You know about 1% of what I do for Cardioscribes.
Team Lead Help
So, if you don't mind me asking, to make sure I go the proper route, when you say team lead, are you referring to our STM? I have not been with the company very long and I am not familiar with the position of a team lead. I plan to take your advice. Please email me if you would rather communicate that way. Thank you.
Response to team lead

You say that you contact everyone who is assigned to you - maybe the short circuiting is happening in HR. Someone is offered a job and then the HR person doesn't forward appropriat paperwork or email to the necessary people.

That's bull...sorry..but I'm team lead and
spread it elsewhere
Your team lead/boss

In general, do your bosses respond to your e-mails with questions about your accounts, etc? My boss does not answer any e-mails. All of my e-mails have been our accounts and not just B.S.

I'm an OSi team lead but can't leave
but I can leave OSi and have received 2 job offers that I'm mulling over right now. I have to make a decision by tomorrow before the jobs are snapped up by someone else. They are running out of spots for new hires.
Have you asked your team lead or ROM? sm

When I started I did a few reports, they were checked and then I was opened up to the pool within the first day.  

Um..as a team lead you are paid
hourly so of course the low amount of dictation available does not impact your bottom line. 
Team Lead Help with Cherrypicking
If you are a team lead for the Web, can you tell us who else can we tell if our STM doesn't seem to want to do anything about it when you have complained? What other option do we have?
$14 hr for pt team lead rest production
and yes all we do is assign jobs when coordinator is off, easy money though
Apply for the new team lead job at Deventure
You're so silly. Your a team lead

and a front for an Indian business.  You should be ashamed of yourself.  Answer this -- their website gives a US address.  You know where the work is coming from and managed - I don't have a problem with the Indian MTs and work -- it's the false advertisement.  So, you're saying you actually condone and have no problem representing a piece of the sham? 

Also, as a TL for this company, you are not portraying yourself in a leadership position -- you should be portraying yourself as an example and mentor.  If the Indian angle doesn't put a sour note on this company, your posts and representation of them does.  Good luck in your lovely position.

Keystrokes lead MTs and management team are great. I am sure I
will be flamed but I really like my lead and have never had anything but positive experiences with anyone in Keystrokes.

The nay-sayers will start their bashing now I am sure.
I'd ask your team lead. She would know but I will tell you that we're already out of work toda
guess everyone wanted the bonus. I find it sad that we'll get back logged because no one wants to work a regular schedule, yet come a holiday bonus, and everyone is obviously working. It's too bad we couldnt have that bonus rate as a standard. You'd see a lot more motivated people in this business. Most of us are burned out on pounding the keyboard all day and gain so little. I guess so much for a holiday bonus when there is no work. Kind of defeats the purpose..Oh well...I'm vented for today.
What does "team lead" mean? And can you stop the rampant cherry-picking?
Is that what a Level 5 MT is? I'm a high-level? 4. Thanks.
It is correct information, someone accidentally sent out an email from their Indian Team lead.
stop making excuses
If you are a working MT & can't make an educated guess based on 3 or 4 syllables, ends in amine or tryptan or something similar ..versus 1 or 2 syllables, ends in ex or aid or something equally snappy...then you should find another line of work.

As a shift lead I made $15 an hour, but did QA plus lead duties...
I also worked terrible hours with no differential for them. I think it just matters on the company.
Star Stop works better than express scribe. If you want start Stop, yea it is kind of sm
expensive. I wish they did pay their QA hourly as I think they would see better quality work, but they per line and it is higher than the other person posted.

I have never had a problem with management, so I am unfamiliar with what the other person experienced with management.

Pay is always on time (most of the time early). I like the software. I guess you just have to see if it fits for you.
Stop taking these insulting wages and they will stop offering them.
opppss meant purple team, not red team.
Sorry, I meant the purple team.
? for any lead at Keystrokes. What does a lead do?

Do they do QA, mentor, or ....? 

You can e-mail me privately if you like. 

Some of us choose neither to lead, nor be lead!
I guess I just don't have that 'pack mentality'.
Sad but true. You're asked to work NOW, then asked to stop NOW, then go again and then stop
If you dont get off the minute the hospital asks, even if you have no idea that they have requested that your to be off, then the hospital MTs steal your work right out of your queue and I mean reports you have already done. I dont understand the concept of having a contract with a hospital and then having to fight for work with the hospital MTs. We should have guaranteed work during our shift and enough of the the hospital wants you to help right now and then a few hours later they want us to stop working as the work is too low. It is crazy and I couldnt work like that so I had to quit.
Ok - here ya go. I went from making $1800 per pay period to making just under $900.
Is that significant enough for you? Believe us, we are not just being negative with a grudge or anything like that. This is real! A month later, I was gone from there fast!
Thanks for responding, but I have more ?s
What is the difference in bennies between 16 and 24 hours?

Also, does it say what the different levels (1,2, or 3) will be making per line?

Thanks for responding
I thought the ad sounded too good to be true.  I couldn't find a website at all either,  plus an aol e-mail.  Glad I didn't apply and waste my time. 
Thanks for responding.
I know what I am paid home-based, which I think is a fair amount, but my sister works at the local hospital and they asked her what she thought was fair and she asked me. I told her I would see if I could get a round about figure. I think this is in-house, they just don't have the position currently and are going to add it.
Thanks All for Responding!
It really does sound like a wonderful company to work for!
Thank you, for responding. Yes, I will ask...
such a shame because they seemed like such a good company, everything was there, you know? Makes me wonder why I ever left the hospital I worked at to begin with...but I did 7 years ago, and now I am regretting it.

The recruiter is awful nice and did now apologize for not checking that first...not intentional, so cannot stay mad about that...

Hold on to your hospital job, haha, you are lucky!
Thank you both for responding! - nm
Thanks everyone for responding
Who would I send my resume to and what is their website addy/ Thanks again.
TY so much for responding...
The work I am getting is extremely difficult. It has to be the worst I think I have ever done in my life, and I am literally losing about $200 a pay period because the health benefits just went up about $100 a month for me at the same time. It is as if I have sunk down to the very bottom of the list, getting only difficult work over and over, or else no work. I keep being told they will understand if I want to quit...?
Thank you for responding, but I

wonder why their web site indicates that they are hiring.  They apparently e-mailed the poster below, who posted yesterday, about a position with them.  I understand that a lot of MTs do not like to see the company they work for advertising/hiring when they do not have work available, but it happens all the time.  I really just wondered how much the down time pay is at this company.

We are responding now : )

The web site does not officially open for a couple of weeks, and we are answering emails after screening - only MTs are welcome - no MTSO's, MTSO managers, and information is being provided as screening progresses. 

We have filtered 22 emails from MTSO's disguised as MTs, so you can understand the concern.  The memberships will include access to a private MTs Only web site, where only MTs will be posting - no company 'ringers'.


Before responding could I please know
you have been following this (subcontractor/TTD) thread over the weekend or is this your first response?
Thanks for responding ...
I, too, have lots of experience and I can't believe what some of these places want to pay.  Of course, you go through all the testing and then find out.  I'll keep looking.  I definitely won't waste my time waiting for this one.  Thanks for the info. 
Thank you for responding. nm

Thanks for responding. I may call them and ask. I know they .. SM
would remember my name as it hasn't been that long at all. I really, really liked their benefits, and I didn't give it long enough to see what kind of money I could make once I learned the account and system well. Like I said to the other poster, I got cold feet and went back to my old job. Since the have an ad posted, I just might call them back.

Thanks again for your friendly response. :)
Thank you, Olive Oyl, for responding

I've been offered a position and was wondering. Thanks so much!

Thanks for responding! Mind if I ask
Just curious :).

Also, quirky how? (Again, if you don't mind.)
who is putting you down? we were just responding
Thank you for responding! Do we buy it or download it?
I was responding to other comments
Re: this was not a 'venting' thread...

I was responding to the original poster *and* others who posted. Is that OK with you?
I saw that ad, was thinking of responding, sm
dont usually have a time limit though, weird.
Are you responding to your own posts?
Nannygoat, is that you in disguise? Same grammatical style and turn of a phrase.
Obviously a TTD employee who is responding!

This is so obviously the owner of TTD!
