i got the same email and did not respond (nm)
Wish they'd respond to my email and resume.
Took the test, did everything right and it's now been three weeks. After 15 yrs of experience, I know I did fine on the test. Guess they aren't hiring.
I have known this for a long time; that is why I NEVER respond to an email from ANYONE on this board

because it will identify your email address when you return their email.  When they ask me to talk via email, I just don't respond to them.  NO RETURN EMAIL FROM ME.

send me an email
I may know of a place for you
Send an email and ask
someone in the office who does the time sheets.
I always send an email sm
and ask all those questions before testing.  If they don't want to give me that info before hand, they aren't worth it.
I think there are 2? send them email and ask
.Just put you message in the portion where is says Apply Now (or did you see info elsewhere?
It's always best to just send an email and let them know - regardless what day.
If I send you an email to let you know
the person you think you are talking about is NOT me, then would you post on this board you made a mistake? I would be more than willing to do this. I am not an owner, I am not a boss, I guarantee you you do not know me. Want to take me up on this or go ahead with posting false things?
anything you need....send email. NM
I work there, but cannot send an email.
How can I help you
send me a private email
I don't discuss this company on the board and you will find few who do.
Send me an email and I will answer you :) nm
How is this better? I do not want to send my email address to anyone as sm
I end up on some strange lists when I do but I really am interested in Keystrokes. I have heard good things and bad and have weighed it out but this kind of cryptic message intrigues me. I just know that whatever happens, I am happy to go with a company that does not outsource and is very open about being against it. I have been burned by two hospitals and two services with offshore transcription.
To MT at Home - I tried to send you an email
but the delivery failed. Of course, I'm very interested in replying to you, but just do not know how.
Send them an email to ask and see if it comes back. nm
Debbie - please re-send the email
Maybe you should send AA an email informing
One answered below. Otherwise--I'd send an email see msg
asking who they were before I sent a resume.
If you send an email and it is not returned as (sm)
undeliverable, would you kindly pass the email on to me? Mine just came back as undeliverable. Hmmmmm. Feeling not to sure about this place......

Thanks in advance.
Why not send this to her email directly?
I think you should take this to her via email. Its easy enough to create an alternate ID so you would not be identified if you are trying to be anonymous.
Pumpernickel, could you send me an email too.. sm
I am the original poster and would love to hear any other information. Incentives would help and might make my decision to stay or go a bit easier! Thanks.
I could send an email saying how I love VR
I have seen reports of mine transcribed by humans which have errors on them. I am glad to be using VR so still want to send emails?
have tons to share - send me email
acute care or radiology?
Lol ! How in the world are we supposed to know who to send such email to ?

We do not know the account supervisor nor anything!  Strange . . .

We have been told NOT to call the office nor email for the last few days because . . . I did get that email !  Convenient when there is no work, isn't it?

I'd tell 'em, 'From now on, send me ONE email/day -
And I'd turn off the IM if they abused it like that.
I not able to send an email to you, info not available on server.
send em this open letter in an email!
I worked 2 weeks at Transcend for 2 weeks, didn't know this is what was being hired to do. I quit when I realized what an absolute mess this was to completely completely reword the ENTIRE report for pennies. What a good deal for THEM. NOT ME!!!!
Find the root file and send by email? ...sm
There should be a directory for it - that's what you will need to send to the tech for conversion. Good luck!
i'd like to know too. i did send an email back before wasting more of my time to see if the work
they email you some voice files to type and send back
answer what they want to -- dodge other important emails in our minds nm
Sine you have access to the address book in Outlook just send the email to the entire team?
Ditto! Also add that they ignore e-mails you send and send endless IMs!
could you respond here for
I wish you would respond....I do.
But if it is only me, well that definitely won't do any good. We all have to stick together and let them know that it is an insult to be treated like non-*professionals*. If more people let them know they'd at least be forced to think about it instead of deleting a lonely email from one angry MT. I am beginning to think they continue to take away from us because most MTs can't be bothered and and/or will take it. ;)
Not only do they not respond....
but then every couple of months they are advertising again.  Do you think it is a vanity thing, or they are trying to  create a reputation for being busier than they are?  I don't understand why a business would waste time unnecessarily in this process, unless of course they are disorganized and discourteous, in which case they have a lot of turnover, which no business wants. 
May I respond to that?
Yes, you do get binders, and yes mine contain way more samples than I probably need; however, the necessary info boils down to just a few pages for doctor lists and account specifics.  And the crap the previous poster so delicately refers to is patient demographic information.  Speaking for my account, my morning routine consists of turning on my computer, setting my demographic update to run, get coffee ready, feed the dog and cat, and by the time that's done my update is usually done or has just another couple minutes.  No big deal really.  That's on the DOS account by the way. 
Can you respond here?
I guess they deleted my post on the main board because it eluded to a job wanted request. So, I had to repost it here instead. If you wouldn't mind responding here, I would greatly appreciate it!
I'm not the OP but I have to respond

I'm not the OP, but THANK YOU for pointing this out. I see so many negative posts on here (humorously referred to as *haterade* in another thread) that I sat and nodded my head in agreement with your post.

While some places fall far short of paradise, if the pay is even halfway decent and on time, this is not the time to turn one's nose up at a less-than-ideal offer.

To had to respond:

I do NOT find your reply rude or condescending.  I only wish I could shrug and deal with it as you apparently have.  Sure, I will give VR a try with it comes to my accounts. I am just dreading it because VR offers none of the things that I enjoy about transcription.  I do not think the humor potential is going to outweigh what I will be losing. 

It's not change, per se, that I resist because I certainly have had a lot of that over the years.  I've had to learn 7 or 8 transcription platforms (one loses count) with the loss in production that always means.  Three of these software changes were within the same company as some *suit* who did not transcribe decided to try out something new.  I have adjusted my schedule every which way to be accommodating.  I put in extra hours often, to help with TAT.  I'm not a total what's-in-it-for-me whiner.  But this is the change that just might do me in, because someone wants to cut my pay, capitalize on my knowledge and experience for less money, and call it progress.  Seriously, other than the chance to keep working, what IS in it for me?

One reason I have resisted offers to go into QA is that I enjoy the actual transcription so much.  Never have tried QA, I just do not feel I would enjoy finding and correcting the errors of others.  Not my thing.  I think VR would be so much worse.

I agree that MDI is a great company and I am glad to have found them after a few (okay, many) real loser companies. They have resisted offshore outsourcing and VR for a long time.  I am just sorry they have had to cave to the prevailing trend on VR.  Their client base expects high-quality work and I am hoping we can still give it to them with this transition.  But if a lot of us *seasoned* MTs choose to bail out, that may not happen. 

Did you respond to an ad?
Did they post a job opening somewhere recent that you were applying to?
ginny please respond
ginny, could you please give me your email so i can visit with you more?
What I don't understand is why anyone would respond to
a post that did not include the name of the company. I certainly would not. If they cannot be up front with who they are, they have something to hide.
It seems usually I am the only one to respond good or bad -
Of all the people who have contacted me privately by email about the job and my thoughts on it, no one has ever come back and told me that I was wrong in what I told them - and I have never seen anyone respond negatively to the questions that are asked openly on this board until Tristen did it on this post.

My experience with eTransPlus may be unique, but it is hard for me to believe that I am the only person that is working happily at that company or they would not have any transcriptionists and therefore would not have a business. I know my 2000 lines a day are not carrying the company...

My experience has been very positive. I get help when I need it, I get extra work when/if I need it, not one time have I ever been told one thing and another happened, the line counts have not changed (I was given a pay scale when I started work and it is the same today as it was then). Yes, you make less if you work part time because you produce less lines - the tiered pay scale is in place as an incentive to do more work. You work harder, you are rewarded - ain't that the way most things work?

I for one will continue to be a cheerleader when someone asks a question about eTransPlus, as I have nothing but good things to say about everyone there!
You need to respond with you will comply with
stating you are now an employee.  You may then be looking for another job, but from what you state, you will become an employee under those demands.
Questions about OSI, PLEASE respond, thanks
I am considering a position with OSI.  How are they to work for?  Is there plenty of work?  Communication from company?  Is QA constructive or ridiculous?  Any input would be appreciated.  Thank you.
When will you respond to our e-mails?
You never respond to e-mails.

I donít think you meant this to respond to me
I 100% agree with you and think the OP unrealistic in thinking anyone should owe her a job just because she wants.
Had to respond to the HR situation...SM
I very recently had to contact HR@trcr.com to get a question answered about benefits and eligibility and such (I was also a TRS transplant), and got a response that afternoon.

I really get agitated when someone has a bad experience and has to dump it on everyone else, because just because your experience sucked, that does not mean that everyones will.

I for one have had nothing but a positive experience since we were acquired by transcend.

Of course, I am willing to do whatever I have to to get my line count in, and have a tendency to be a little obsessive about working, but I rarely work beyond my 8 hours and still manage my line count.

I am incredibly flexible, and willing to do what I have to. I work 2 different platforms and quite a few accounts, but this was by my choice, not due to their being a necessity for it. My goal has always been to be as flexible as possible because that makes me more valuable to the people I work for and with.

To those of you reading these posts to formulate a decision, remember that everyone's experience will be different, and that stuff posted here is people's personal opinion, and take everything with a grain of salt.
