How can a message be confidential if it posted on a public message board? nm

try a different message board
mtstars is not the place for a question about this company it seems.  Very mysterious.
Because that's the art of a message board.
and have lots of work, how is it you need to come here?  Most like to come and voice their opinion.  If you are offended by negative comments, then why respond?  You are contributing to the cause, but please do as it is a free country, I think!
No! Not on THIS message board!
It should be MT Hysteria, not Stars. It's been this way for years. Nice comical break from the daily grind. Didn't you see the poster above who has already predicted this is just the beginning of a 30% pay cut for KSers? HAHAHAHAHA. Seriously, it makes you wonder how in touch with reality some people are or if they just actually ENJOY wallowing in malcontent. I think some people truly do.
MDI message board?
Does anyone know if MDI still has their own message board open? It was one they had through the mditrans site. I tried to access it recently and wasn't able to.
Has anyone here ever read the message board
It's pretty interesting in that some posts have been made in regard to stocks being valuable based on the MTs.  One even said that As long as there is cash in the bank and transcriptionists transcribing it remains a viable opportunity.  I wonder if they know all the problems with keeping transcriptionists transcribing there.  I also wonder if that post came from Transcend management.
Sorry message board will not let me use the words i'd like to...
Basically all their MTs are in India and they LIE big time!! Very very disorganized...right hand has NO CLUE what the left hand is doing. Talkin about jumpin thru hoops too GEESH. The pay scales works like this..if you edit something already edited by an Indian you get 0.015 cpl if you just edit an Indian's work it is 3 cpl. What a mess they are!!
I will bet if all these companies had message board that sm
you would still see the same things as on the MQ board. Same crap goes on everywhere.
Other job board is separate from reg. message
Ummm, this is a message board, not a test.
transcription test, thank you very much! 
Its a message board for cryin out loud!
To bad we can't come on here and state our feelings or vent our frustrations without having to worry about all this. Some posts are over the line, but most are just people who want a place to talk to others in the same boat they are. I think the ones who are trying to dissect the posts to figure out who they are written by need to spend a little more time working!!!
FYI, any message board, any at all, have access to IP addies
Some people lol
I actually put a message on the moderator board...guess they didn't see it yet (NM)

I never knew that a message board had the strength to negotiate with an MTSO. How cool is that? Who
Yes, but just don't give me a cryptic message, I need facts.
Not happy? You are free to start your own board, to
Their ad was on another free board in May. I'm assuming they're in MIchigan. Said they had a 6
Public board. I am free to respond to any post.
Public board. Free speech, and all that. If it bothers

nm means no message.   sm means see message.   if you call yourself nm, then people might not click to read the rest of your post. 

just trying to help.

ps. if the money is there, why does that particular person's balance say zero?

give OSI own board
AGREE. Does not matter how many or how few - they're really taking up space driving their point into the wall. If they must drive it home, for Heaven's sake - GIVE THEM A HOME ALREADY.
I thought on the job board, you had to give
Did this rule change, since there are no more sponsors? I would think that once they know they have to put the name up top most of these scams and out-of-USA posts would stop right away.
you can, and should, give the company name on this board.
Can you give us a hint who this might be (sm)

in order to prevent this from happening to someone else.  Thanks.

Company start with an "E"..give us a hint. If they are doing it to someone else too, then I&#
Throwing in the towel is one way of putting it. I've done this routine too many times.
Can you give me a hint as to which company? The same thing happens to me too and I am an IC. nm
MedQuisters, topics from the Company board are being moved to the MedQuist board. MQ posts on

the first page of the Company board will be removed to open up space for other companies to post.  Enjoy the new Medquist board set up for you.

Thank you,


Are you the same condescending person the word board? I thought this was called "Company Board.&#
Didn't you post this on 03/04/06 on both the Company Board and the Hospital/Clinic MT Board?


This was moved from main board to company board. Replies don't transfer. nm
But that could be Leave a Message or Little Message! LOL
Congrats! :) SM = see message. NM (no message)

Sorry! Wrong board. Reposted on Main board. NM
There is a comedy board...put your remarks on that board. nm
Then this is the "Unprofessional" MT board. Pulic board,
You already have your own board. Now you want a board for the ones who leave??
Do they give psychological tests also to allow you to work for them for free? It's



10 pages, bull, they want it for free, give them one page or find another job.

I was told that they do outsource a very low number of jobs, but I have yet to find very many who don't now.  At least they're honest about it.  They have different platforms for different accounts, and the one I'm working on pays for spaces, headers, footers, etc., and I really like it. They are hiring right now.

I am a radiology transcriptionist who has worked at a hospital for the past 5 years.  Due to medical reasons I can no longer make that commute every day and I'm looking for an at home job.  Reading through all the posts here is so discouraging.  If so many of you who have worked at home for years don't know who to trust, how do I ever stand a chance?  I haven't applied to any companies yet.  I'm hoping some of you who do radiology and are happy (or at least not miserable) can give me some guidance.  Thank you.

I think it is the same few people doing all the complaining. They all sound very similar.

I wouldn't worry about too much of it.

Start with the big nationals and see if you like them. If you don't, go with smaller nations, then MTSOs, etc.
My message

I just went through all the posts and read them about Keystrokes.  I am an ex-employee of KS.  I want to know why some of these MTs are being so degraded like they are by current KS employees.  There are 2 different types of negative posters.  There is the disgruntled employee who likes to stir the pot.  Then there is the ex-employee who had real issues and problems with a company and posts their experiences and opinions about such.  I see many ex-KSers posting about just that.  Their experiences.  The things that they know best about KS, the things that happened personally to them while working there.  Then I see current KSers being combative in their words, degrading, very unprofessional and I am shocked. 

A Keystrokes employee, maybe management, has come on here and publically named quite a few names as the owner's of these negative posts.  Naming names publically without any knowledge or proof that is the person that they are naming.  There is no evidence based on any one of these posts that points unwaveringly that it is any of these people whose names have been flamed.  No one at Keystrokes can possibly know who they belong to based on the content of the post, as many, many ex-KSers have had the same complaints over the years.  It is simply impossible.  I find this very unprofessional and unethical. 

Lee has posted on this forum many times, lashing out, being nice, getting on her "soapbox."  But I am quite sure given the history that she has also posted on here without placing her name with the post.  I know that a current KSer has stated that Lee always posts her name with her post so that everyone knows it is hers.  But as any simpleton would know, you could post anon just as easily.  I want to know why any current KSer, or anyone else for that matter, would be surprised to think that people are considering Lee as the owner of some of these current posts since we have all seen how Keystrokes maintains a history of flaming people publically in a dirty, under-handed way.  It is too far a stretch to imagine that she could post hurtful things, untruthful things without leaving her name? 

I am sure that there are a lot of MTs that have a good experience at KS and can understand their wanting to defend their company.  But this does not take away from the very real fact that many have had some terrible issues with this company.  It is evident in the pattern that has long since been set.  There are too many MTs that state the same complaints over too long of a period of time.  No amount of good publicity can deflect from this truth.

I do know that if I so happen to see my name publically expressed on this forum by anyone at KS in response to any of these posts, there will be some serious repercussions for KS.  I think that this needs to stop immediately and the staff and MTs at KS need to buckle down and cool off and remember what it is exactly that they are doing.

This was the worst company that I have worked for in 30 years! Their platform is horrible! If you want to talk to Indians every day, then go work for them! This was not the company for me,

I could barely make 1300 lines per day, and I was on 4 accounts! Supervisor was like talking to a brick wall, I don't think she has ever transcribed a day in her life.

I tried to make it work, I really did, but when it came down to it, I have become acustomed to making enought money to afford bread and milk and wasn't going to be able to working at Heartland!  

See message--I put nm, but there was one
But the new platform SUCKS, and you can't edit 40% more lines on the new platform.  I would guess on average maybe 20% more lines, but definitely not 40% on an every-day basis--only when there are a couple of the better dictators on.  And even if I could, I would have liked to know ahead of time

I did not start working because I was NEVER TRAINED...how can you start working on an account and not have any training? I'm good, but not psychic for IDs and account specifics! What I'm leaving out is all the calls to the office and emails to the office, the cursing and tearing out of my hair trying to find a job again after accepting this position. I spoke directly with Lee - she hired me, and I felt she was someone I could work with....never more wrong in my life. Please don't start accusing ME of leaving something out when your company left ME out in the cold.
P.S. to see message
P.S. - by the way, all these messages will soon disappear as soon as someone tells the office, and they will have them all taken off so future job seekers will not see these warnings....just watch, happens all the time.
