I imagine they're busy job hunting.
I received my phone call yesterday.  I still think it stinks that they waited until 2 weeks before things ended to call and tell me they lost the account but they have no idea why they lost it - BS They know exactly what happened.  Yes, a 2-week notice is better than nothing but they've known for a while now.  I guess I just expected better from this company overall.  They were really great to work for until greed took over and India stepped in.  As they say, what goes around comes around. 
I agree! I just can't imagine a company speaking such negativity! I just can't imagine that.
Surely this is not a manager or anyone big time important at SS.  I just thought maybe it is a mad MT or something.  I have never seen such postings from a manager.  I was just curious.  I think it is very unprofessional if this is management.
Some of it sounds criminal to me!
tell your friend to file criminal charges - sm
bouncing a check is against the law (except in Florida - where you have to go to small claims court). However, in MOST states (before anyone jumps down my throat) - in MOST states it is against the law to bounce checks and it is taken seriously and the owner CAN BE taken away in handcuffs and the court WILL ENFORCE that they make good on the checks.
Which companies do criminal background checks?
no nasty comments, you wouldn't understand.  Just asking a question.  Thanx for your help.  It would save me alot of time to know this information.  Thank you.
Credit & criminal background checks

I'm thinking of applying to these companies and wonder which ones do these checks.  Don't judge me but anyone with teenagers knows that things can get out of hand.  Thank you.

Diskriter, Alltype, TTS, MDI-MD and (yes) Medquist.

Also, has anyone ever been hired and then fired for a stained record?

We all need to band together!!! And we DO need to contact an attorney. This has become CRIMINAL!
This is not legal!
Doesn't Diskriter require criminal background check?
I can totally understand a drug test and criminal background check, but...sm
personally I don't feel you can always judge the caliber of an employee based on a credit report. I know plenty of people who are the salt of the earth, of high moral standing and work ethic that may have encountered a unfortunate circumstance, i.e. job loss, car accident, excessive medical bills, that may have put a blemish on their credit report. They should not be discriminated against.

However, I do see where a credit report would be necessary for a position of relevance. I just don't see the justification for an at-home IC who is using their own equipment, paying their own taxes, etc. to have to submit this information.

I'll use my own situation as an example. A few years back my husband accrued an excessive amount of medical bills and I was unemployed because my job was outsourced. We were late on a few bills and are trying to rebuild our score so that we can get a good interest rate on a home. Every time that score is pulled, it drops a few points. We have worked very hard to rebuild this score just to have it drop because a company wants to know personal/private information. We as MTs are supposed to respect the privacy of patients and have HIPAA drilled into us daily. I feel my personal information should be respected as well. A criminal background check isn't personal information, but necessary for the safety of all involved.
Can't imagine
why you would say that.  It is my understanding the person you are defaming very seldom works directly with the MTs and when he does it is in a techncial role of helping them get set up and assisting with technical matters; that assistance has always been timely, helpful and professional, according to my personal experience.
You can't imagine....
Out of 40-50 resumes, I might find one qualified applicant.   I recently hired one person who had been with a well-known national (the BIG one) for over 10 years, yet every word of her work had to be edited.  The mistakes were so gross we had to let her go.  There is one study at home school churning out graduates who are not qualified to do anything!  I get constant requests for easy accounts.  I've had people sign up for full time who only put out 80-100 lines per day and say they are getting used to the account.    A big problem is even getting applicants who can follow the instructions in the ads.  We are very specific about what to send and how, yet get emails saying I'm interested in the job, tell me about it.    Out of 7 I have hired the past month, only two remain.  It really makes one wonder about all the postings of people being treated bad or not being paid enough.  I get constant resumes from nurses who decide they want to transcribe and who curse me within an inch of my life because I won't hire them with a score of 60 on the test.   It makes me cringe to think of the reports getting through to the facilities and the patient behind the name who could be harmed due to the extremely poor work these people put out with their prior company.
I can't imagine how you can
say that QA is inconsistent.  They have a style guide that makes inconsistency impossible.   It's all in there. 
Yes, you can only imagine YOUR
point of view...

I think I made a valid point: Corrections made by QA in a team effort spirit - instead of playing GOTCHA (and don't question us or ask for clarification)are not objectionable to most MTs.
Just imagine...
ESLs dictating and Indian transcriptionists...can only imagine what the medical records will look line in a few years!
OMG! Can you imagine?!? (nm)

If they pay that for IC, imagine how low
Can't imagine working
anywhere else. Super people. Super tech support. Super platform. A lot of ESL, but some EFL (English First Language)docs can be worse than ESLs.
can you imagine good pay and
Can't imagine how they would be but it would be interesting to know!

I left in time....got all my money.  Some were not as quick to figure it out.

I would imagine all the larger ones do, whether
Yes, can you imagine messing up here?
The poster reminds me of myself 20 years ago - which just goes to say people do change :0

(now where did I put that prozac?)
Spheris does not. I would imagine, most don't.
Yep, that was actually true. Can you imagine?
That plan got quashed somehow, and was the same time the MQ suits got caught calling us all typing monkeys... If we could do it, convicts could do it.  After the typing monkey hoopla, Plan Convict MTs went out the window. 
hmmm just like they said would be done IMAGINE THAT !
Also, I bet your bank deposit is there tomorrow, AGAIN LIKE THEY SAID, AGAIN IMAGINE THAT. I only have one question for whoever you are that is too chicken to post your name, what is wrong with you? Have you ever worked anywhere else that you got paid in less than 7 days after close of pay period, then why did you leave. Most places I have ever worked, you would type 1st through the 15th and then get paid on the 1st of the next month for that work, so honey seven days is wonderful to me. Sure, I have had a few issues here, no place is perfect, but I can tell you when I let them know I was upset about whatever it was, never about not getting paid, they went out of way to make me happy and fix it, so again to you UNKNOWN MT, what is wrong with you. Please email me and see if I can help you. sheryl.cantrell@gmail.com I am just an MT for Cardioscribes but know how to talk to them and very happy.
Can you just imagine how much LESS they would pay if they had to pay overhead too? nm
I would imagine it means ...
mind their own business ... just a guess
Imagine how productive...

you would be if you weren't spending your time here reading posts from all of the complainers.

I second that! Imagine if she were peppy
what this poster could come up with!!
Can you imagine having 700 MTs trying to TALK at once? sm
that's why it is set up for typing your questions.
Most disgusting? I can't imagine anything worse!
You really need to get a life if that's the "most disgusting" thing in your reality. Or else your time spent on this planet has been incredibly blessed. You don't have anything more important to worry about? Unbelievable.
I imagine they'd offer an incentive if everyone sm
was working her schedule and working extra hard in the first place. With excessive absences, it seems that not everyone is pulling her share. An incentive would entice the ones out of the woodwork who have been taking time off and who would get extra money for work they should have kept up with in the first place. (Bad sentence, but I'm in a hurry to get back to work--no time to edit.) I can work a half-hour extra each day, no problem. 30 minutes of time is not asking too much. At least this confirms no outsourcing, eh? WE are getting the work.

Relax, roll up your sleeves, grab some chocolate, and be loyal to this good company.

I can't imagine a piece of work like you
your company is doomed.
Can't even imagine this. I feel awful for you.
That is so wrong on many, many levels.  What in the world are they thinking?  I feel your pain and frustration and hope you find just the right account. 
As that company uses their platform would imagine
they had just built a working relationship and so brought her/him on.  SoftMed has undergone enormous changes since last fall - lots of layoffs - sorry you are having so many probs!
I can't imagine anyone paying for that, it's elective. sm
Insurance doesn't exist to cover huge expenses such as this. IVF is completely elective, completely unnecessary (in the sense of necessary to save life or limb or prolong life). Also the fact that it's a crapshoot makes it not a good bet for the company. Why would they pay out 10s of thousands of dollars when there's no guarantee it's going to work?
I don't do the California account but I can only imagine.................
Just imagine VR slaughtering ESLs and you have a recipe NOT to make money. You'd be spending all your time trying to put sentences together that make no sense. To each his own. I just wouldn't be doing that job.
Can you imagine the 100s of applicants
I could not even imagine working in HR for TT right now! I would not apply there now, it would be impossible to try to stand out among all the applicants. Its crazy!!!!!
Really? Imagine a critical situation where some of
Temp 98.7.Pulse 90.Blood pressure 120/80.Platelets 150,000, WBC 4.3, RBC 5.5.AST 20, ALT 22.Sodium 136, potassium 3.8, chloride 100, bicarb 25. Albumin 4.0, alk phos 89, BUN 18, calcium 9.2, CO2 25, creatinine 1.6, direct bili 0.1, gamma-GT 45, glucose 120, LDH 106, phosphorus 2.6, total bili 1, total protein 7.1, uric acid 7.6.Total cholesterol 180, HDL 56, LDL 95.

Transcription isn't all about passing an English test. A lot of rules which we follow are for ease of reading, again, in a critical situation.

And one of the major reasons for the push to convert to EMR/EHR is because of instant availability of a person's medical record in...you guessed it, a critical situation.

So it has become circular reasoning, i.e.

EMR/EHR can save a life because they're instantly available

EMR/EHR doesn't put spaces after periods

spaces after periods don't matter

a rushed and stress physician can't read the medical record because

EMR/EHR doesn't put spaces after periods

spaces after periods don't matter

patient dies.

Imagine a job with plenty of work
Still chasing that fantasy!  You have your fantasy, I have mine!
I imagine they are totally overwhelmed with applications right now.
I would give them a little bit of time to get back with you. I just can't phanthom the amount of applications they've probably received from those wanting to maintain a SE status. That's where I'm headed & actually looking forward to it. I wish you the best & hope you hear from them !!
LOL. I imagine someone with sharp scissors cutting pennies.
I would imagine they will just start sending usage payments
I cannot imagine what purpose you intend to serve by this post?
No wonder companies want to go overseas. I wouldn't hire the lot of you anyway with these ridiculous attitudes, slamming, and incessant back-biting.

It is apparent that US MTs are just not worth the trouble. The overseas MTs will do this work WITHOUT COMPLAINT.
Give me one too! Imagine the nerve of them expecting you to work your shift.
Well just imagine being even happier when you contact the company to follow up, and guess what? sm
You actually get the job because you show an avid interest in a job with the company.  On the other hand, you could be just happy to know that you passed the test. 
Why worry about it
If you know it wasnt you, why worry about it?  Just let it go and then you cannot be accused of stirring the pot.  You dont work there anymore so dont concern yourself with it.  Just let it go so that it can be dropped. 
Not to worry.......sm
this thread will be deleted the second Admin sees it.
You don't have enough to worry/think about, do ya?! LOL
Or are ya looking for a free meal through a lawsuit? LMAO

There ARE other factors at stake when hiring or not hiring employees other than where you live, dufus. Geez! LOL

Thanks for the laugh, though!
Don't worry, you probably won't either
Don't worry
I'm sorry that the OP is having a bad experience, but mine has been just the opposite and wanted you to know this.  I never run out of work, quite the opposite actually.  Also, I have found the management to be nothing less than professional and kind.  Good luck in your decision.   
not to worry...
it all depends on the account you are working on. I have 1 account where I can do 2000+ in 6 hours; but on my second account, I can't get anywhere near that.
