Feel free to post your questions here. The only criteria we ask that posters follow

is not to post other people's personal names, email addresses, telephone numbers, and no client specific information.  Regarding crass posts by others, this is an anonymous board, which means anyone can post without identifying themselves.  We do moderate the site for content, but I would advise ignoring the trolls and negative information and zone in on the positive.



My post should say the post above not the post below, Sheryl's post to be specific. nm

It's a "fishing" post. Same post a few days ago with numerous errors

Read Spherson's post below, who admits, in the post, they do pay it.
Peachy, your post is interesting, but my post now is irrelevent but
A few weeks ago I went to my clinic where they had recently implemented EHR or EMR, whichever you call it, and the doctor's back was to me the whole time he and I conversed because his nose was stuck in his laptop. To me, it felt a little more impersonal, but I understand he was doing what he had to do, but it seems like the bedside manner may go to the wayside if the doctors can't even look at you when they are asking you questions or you are speaking to him/her. I know this is relevant to your original post, but just an interesting fact that I had not anticipated. Anyone else experience this?
This is why I NEVER post my cpl. I'll post the range of
what the company pays, but NEVER what I make.  I know that I make more than probably 70% of the people there, because they know I produce a client ready report and that I can do anything they throw at me.   We don't have levels, but I guess if we did I'd be at the highest level.    Telling how much you make isn't so bad, but when people know what company you work for and then what you make that isn't a good combination.  The ONLY people I have ever discussed what I make with, are my husband and my MTSO owner.   Talking about your salary/pay is enough to get your fired in lots of companies.

This post is in regard to the post w/ the heading below
One post was another "run" type of post and the
the recruiter. Once you are in with the company, the recruiter has nothing to do with you or your job. I want specifics about problems with THE JOB, not the recruiter.  Specifics such as no or late checks, line counts being messed up, no work, taking bennies away with no explanation. Things that matter, not the recruiter. 
everytime you post, where ever you post
unless you go through an anonymizer, your IP address can be traced back to you, even through the guises of this web site.  There are web sites you can find on the internet to do this for you, or if you are 18 years old and like to hack, it's an easy enough thing to do.
I post a pay range, DOE; however, most don't post..
I wish some MTs would start thinking about the business aspect of the industry.  For example, this is a public site, so go to Google or another search engine and type [the co's name] and per line, and voila! now everyone knows how much you pay your MTs.
Post removed, you can re-post.
Free enterprise. You are free to re-educate and retrain, as well!!!!
What's the complaint?!

FYI - she had it closed before

I'm sure others got the same message when they tried to post.  This was sooo fun; let's do it again sometime!  ya know, when you're more on your game!

I'm sure everyone was so entertained by all of this.  I quite frankly have agreed and posted to you on other threads and I don't really think you're a moron.  I do, however, think that you went a little overboard with the copy and paste. 

I think we all have our moments when we think we know something only to find out we really didn't...

It's been a learning experience for me, and I hope for you, too!  Have a terrific night!

First, this topic has dwindled into tit-for-tat insult trading both in this thread and the one below. Both threads are locked.

Second, if you want to talk about cherry-picking, it belongs on the Main board as it is a transcription issue in all companies. A word of caution, though: Make sure you discuss the issue and stop the personal boxing matches and name-calling. If you have problems with a thread, do not try to police it - report it properly, please.



MQ Asheville NC closed several sm
years ago because of off shoring. Seems an employee suspected off shoring because the dictated and transcribed times that were coming back did not jive. Did some checking and confirmed her suspicions. The real kicker here is that this particular MQ office was doing ONLY VA ACCOUNTS! Hows that for giving out identities. Nothing like all the information on our soldiers, names, SS#s, etc. etc. She reported this. It was on all the news stations, big news. Long and short of it, they closed the Asheville office. People offered jobs in offices in other states or at home EXCEPT the person who ratted on MQ. I am sure her career is ruined but we need MTs who are not afraid to stand up. This profession is getting way out of control!!!!!!!
They closed the Mahopac NY office
Now, everyone in eight offices is sharing work? What do we do when they were already shorting us?
did - several times - and even closed and reopened.
I work for them. Not sold or closed.

Heartland already closed two offices

in India...they are surely closing down entire transcription business by coming December

Sources saying they were never making any money in transcription business. How will someone make money by sending work overseas and that too not keeping a track of what each individual Transcriptionist or Editor or QA is producing?

I thought the other Heartland had closed
shop because of their financial situation and bad business practices.

Good luck to you in your business.
Last post
No, after I read a followup yesterday that said there were apologies and answered Michelle, I realized that and someone said to just get back to work and they were right.. even an apology was too much, plus it would look like I was just tagging along after JMO, which is what you are accusing me of now.

I just didn't understand where the posts went, it was odd, and I wanted to reiterate some things (the point I mentioned earlier, about seeing BOTH sides), but I see it really doesn't matter WHAT I say, you've already made up your mind about me and my motivations without even knowing me. Why am I explaining myself to you? I dunno.

It doesn't matter. Good luck to you and don't worry, God will take care of/deal with me, and I ask him to bless you all too.:)

Would you please e-mail me at jcarros213@aol.com.  I "really" need information.  


This post should have gone under OP.
On Greenlight Transcription keep getting erased?!

mine got erased too..I asked a question about eTransPlus and now it's gone???

Above post
Oh my.....I didn't know Wal-Mart had "greaters". I thought they were greeters! I am sure they are hiring though so you should do well there.

Why don't you sign your posts? Are you also the one that said SoftScript is the worst? Wow....there a lot of worsts out there. Guess we will all starve.
Will you post when you do?

Are you a SS transcriptionist?  Will you post your acknowledgement of e-mail?

It gives YOU something to post about right?!
What else would you post about?! LOL
I like your post!!
To Can't Say: Regarding your post below about
Can you say which recruiter told you that Transcend was buying MQ? 
Where did you see this post?
If you post their name they probably won't get any

resumes.  This way they'll probably get a few, but hopefully the MTs will be wise enough to turn them down.

Another good reason not to respond to a blind ad is that it could be the company you are currently working for - or you were working for  (LOL). 


I appreciate your post...perhaps I used....sm

the wrong word of undercutting, but when I became an MTSO 9+ years ago......a national was charging 13-18 cpl to the client and so I went ONE cent below that, 12 CPL.....and I get the work, have had clients for all this time...and I work for a national part-time....

Thank you for taking the time to type all that....much appreciated!! 

And you might want to post
your message in reply to the correct message. I am not oops.
I have only posted one message in response to this person.
Anyone could post on here and say they are from
Whose to say that poster posing as KS Team Leader or such is not someone specifically out to do KS harm?

For crying out loud, people -- just someone with a mean streak and nothing to do can get on here and cause harm. And the reason they can cause it is because most people on here will believe any post they read.

Now THAT is sad.
sorry about my post above, was
I think they are trying not to post here except
Still doesn't make any sense at all to come to a public forum and ask these kinds of questions.

I'd be reluctant to hire someone who had no more IQ than to do that.
PS: Just saw the post below, anyone do QA for them?
Thank you for this post!
Your post is 100% correct--disgraceful disrespect for the MT whose skill, experience, and expertise keep transcription companies in business! Unbelievable attitude. Thanks for your post--it is 100% right on!
PS to above post, sm
The accounts are teaching hospitals, acute care, and clinics etc. A mix of ESLs and non-ESLs. Not easy unless you really know your stuff, but good accounts. Good luck.

My experience was different but also bad!
