Some of these TT people used to be at MQ and SM

In Reply to: Finally ready to apply with Transtech - Is there plenty of work these days? NM TIA

complained about the work flow there and how things were done. They had a lot of complaints about VR and the reduction in pay on that, which it turns out is more than other companies are paying. I think they are finding out is not much better at this place either.

People at TT have been paid! People who haven't well, maybe you did not make count and your check
after insurance deduction. Maybe your bank is holding it. Maybe anything! But we GOT PAID. This is NO LIE. And I am sick of this board. Nothing but disgruntled exemployees arguing with employees who like their job. Ugggg. I am working. BTW: THERE IS WORK (clears throat) remember that? Work?
Keystrokes is wonderful!! They are the nicest people and care 150% about their people!!
Excellent company!!!!
I worked for SS and some people were very RUDE and I am talking about the editing people in some
instances.  It ALL depends on the person, as it does with any company.  They paid on time and the lady over me was very nice, but boy the person in QA was mean to EVERYONE!!  Never seen anything like it before.
Are people trying to scare people or just tell them what is happening. I am not scared just seeing
that things are changing very rapidly and not for the better for me. If I have no work and need multiple accounts everyone else is in the same boat now arent they that have my accounts. That is how people know what is going on.
Maybe due to the people that manage Amherst. I think MQ would be a lot better off finding new people
up there with all the problems you hear about that office. Seems like something is very very wrong there.
I doubt it. There are more happy people than unhappy people sm
at Medquist. I've checked out other companies but I liked MQ the best (I kept working at MQ while testing other companies).
SO right! People who get paid to bring people on-board -sm
to these companies (few, if any, are 100% honest, it seems), are going to be honest and tell you anything that isn't rosy and sugar-coated. Having a good prospective MT walk because the company isn't so great means less green dollars in their bank account every month. They're not going to tell us anything that DOESN'T make them more money.
More people will come into VR because the qualifcations to do MT are not the same. Lots of people w
to work at home. It's all relative to what you are used to. The nationals are counting on this. I think MTs will work cheaper rather than reenter the work force with no other skills than MT. The nationals are counting on this.
They named people's names. That is not right. People just sm

need to keep from naming names.  I thought it was an informative bit of information, but when you name names, then posts are way out of line. 

I would really like to see a truly professional way of talking about a company.  I don't care what board you go to, somehow people just do not want to play nice when it comes to talking about people.  If those people could learn to be a little more professional and stop posting names to their wrath or anger, then that will be the day I can say I am proud to be in this profession.  When I see those types of things, it makes my skin crawl.  If it were me being talked about, I would be livid.  I certainly understand why the posts were deleted. 

Thank you for saying that. Most people here just love to trash people.
It is against board rules though.
Heartland - we take care of our people people
I meant in quotation marks, not parentheses.
For people at MDI-MD that say they are out of work, I see they are hiring now. Are people still
running out of work or did they get more accounts.  I am interested in this company.
Honestly, people some people are lazy...
plain and simple, sad but true.
Dont kid yourself that people dont know what is going on. Do you honestly think these office people
dont talk. Maybe you should make sure you know what you are talking about before you open your mouth.
Who said people who work for KS aren't happy for people who work for (sm)
other companies?  I'm happy for people who are happy with their jobs, no matter what company they work for. 
Because people like you come on this
because you don't have any problems with MDI then no one else possibly could either. I'm really glad your experience has been so positive. I'm not saying mine has been bad but there are issues at management level whether you want to believe it or not. Have you read any of these posts? Does that answer your question?
Who are these people?
I'm not sure who the devil-nurse is but I know who the current manager is. Who is the first one you mentioned? Her initials are okay if you care to answer.
some people
not only is she too young to read the newspaper to find out about the divorce rate and many people maintain relationships with their exhusband she also can't take a joke and is plain crazy and mean to boot.
Probably not seeing that a lot of people are having


I think on the people on DQS yes.
How can you sit there and lie to these people?!!!!!
Okay, former OSI people!

the OSi management person is who is in here doing damage control/cheerleading under the name "Happy OSI-er"??

Is it PD, MB, Flossie, or one of the lower level cronies that they put up to it?  My guess is that it's Flossie, but it could be any of them.

Could they be any more transparent?

Uh...what? Like I said, I wonder some of the people
absolutely nm
I have never met so many people in SM
one field who have anger problems, personality problems, severe mental illness, you name it.  They are drawn to this field like flies. 
That the people who do your QA
I always change inappropriate things.  Yet, if I do have to send a report to QA they change it back to "verbatim" and deduct me.  That is NUTS.  If you know it is a "she" and not a "he" verbatim is out the window as far as I am concerned.  Some QA people need to get a life.  We MTs take our jobs seriously. 
that is how most people pay
It depends on what you call making money. You get paid, so you would make money.

People PC

Thanks for the info. 


I just can't believe people sometimes - sm

I am not pro-MT or pro-MTSO.  I am a person who tries to treat people fairly and wants to be treated fairly myself. 

To the person who got fired:  Why in heaven's name would a company keep someone who makes errors, apparently consistently, takes off at the last minute and has problems?  The bottom line is THEIR credibility suffers for your actions and they are a business.  I'm sure everyone is sorry your are having problems in your life but come on!  How long is someone supposed to wait around until you get your life together?  You really expected that?  You said, they knew I was having problems and that things would turn around?  Say what???!!!!

Like I said, sorry you are having problems in your life but the world still goes on.  The place you worked for very well could have said they don't want work produced by you.  Why would they?  By your own admission, there were errors, glaring enough that the MTSO and the place you typed for couldn't take a chance with you anymore. 

This is what's wrong with the world today.  Everyone wants not just a second chance, but a 3rd, 4th, etc.  Let me say that no one can put up with mistake after mistake in a MEDICAL report.  It just can't happen, no matter what the reason.  While I'd be upset if this happened to me, I'd realize it was my own fault and take responsibility for it.  Why blame the company for your actions?  Get your act together and if you are as good as you think you are, you will surely find something else. 

I have to wonder what it is about these people that

make this observation about V.  I have known and worked with her and have followed her career and she is one of the best MTs, QA persons, knows-about-the-MT-business world people I've known (and I've known her for 10 years).  I also know she has solid backing from a number (not just 1 or 2) of well-known MTSOs and she would not have that if these allegations were true.  I doubt those who put her down will find jobs with several of those MTSOs because of their loyalty to her.  Her dedication to this profession cannot be questioned unless it is by someone who comes across poorly, IMO.

WOW I can't believe people would lie about that
I mean, do they not think that they might get caught when they actually start to work? Crazy, but it gave me a good laugh.
could be quite a few. The people in
human resources (love the ratsources) have no idea about transcription but like to think they are important and run slipshod over people. After all, they control your check and your benefits.
You don't have to take the job. But some people may want it.

wages only pay what the market will bear. If no one will work for 6-7 cpl, you won't see ads for that. However, I will tell you there are plenty of experienced people with good skills who are willing to work for that. But you don't have to...at least as long as you can get better!

hoi, you people really don't get it.
Yes those are the people

Joy is her name.  I am very disappointed that people do hardworking MTs like this.

Well some people!
Show some love  geesh!!! 
I think people ask that because they are
Not because they do not trust MT Stars, but because when there are major blow-ups at companies and they are talked about, the companies make it plain to their MTs that they are reading what is written and it feels a bit threatening to the MT.

I'm sure that there are QA people
If you don't know the answer to the question, please don't reply to the posts.
D&L people

This URL posted for this company would be a good item to send to the PA Labor Board to show them how another state handled the IC status and determined that ICs qualified as employees.  Here's the URL again and hopefully helpful for the D&L folks, too.      Thank you for posting this URL.

Yes, but WE the people will still
CONTINUE to tolerate that won't we :)

At what point, I wonder, if ever, will people start to PROTEST what corporate rule is doing to us?

Probably the day after it's too late

Just curious: how many here have ever picked up the phone and called their representatives in Congress about *any* issue? This is not meant as sarcasm, I'm truly curious...

We can email each other to death, but THEY are the ones writing laws...

Don't you think these are the people
that the hospitals should be told that we can't do and that they have to do something about???? There is absolutely no reason we should have to suffer through this type of working situation...It is absolutely uncalled for....These kinds of dictators wouldn't be able to use ASR, so why should the humane factor be any different????
Is that what you people are doing??
No matter we get stuck doing all the crap .....No cherry picking allowed!!!!!!
All the people I have seen that have had this have the same sm
look about them. They look gaunt and pasty. And when Star Jones lost all her weight and was denying she had gastric surgery, I knew right away she did because of the way her face looked. I think she looks like an alien now, her eyes really bug out.

I know everyone is not going to be affected the same, but there is just too much risk in this for me to ever do it.
I would think different people will have different
Could you KS people (sm)
that use Meditech and PC shorthand, please give instructions how to copy text from Meditech to PC shorthand?  (I am VERY NEW and no nothing about computers, but would like to copy some the, say, physical exams, over to the PC Shorthand.)  Thank you very much - and maybe this will help someone else who is new and knows NOTHING about computers!  ha!  Thank you!!!
All the MDI-MD people here and - sm
NO one can answer my simple questions??
People like you who like to tell
anyone who doesn't like their job to go find another one.  It's a good thing we all don't think like you or there wouldn't be too many left working at the Q.
I'm not one of those QA people (sm)
who think I'm better than the MT I'm QA'ing .  I would reply to the feedback and ask specifically why the changes that were made were made.  A good QA person would have explained that in any event along with the feedback without leaving you wondering.  As far as the the situation.  We see that a lot.  Many times an MT will insert the so the sentence reads better, even when the physician does not dictate such.  In your case though, you state it was dictated.  I would point this out to the QA staff who made the corrections and inquire why it was removed. 
obviously you are one of those people

I guess you don't want to be talked to with a little bit of respect and decency.  Who wants to work for someone who is rude when they don't have to?  This IS business and I expect to be treated like a professional.  I wouldn't apply at SS or any other company who talks to people the way do because there are just as many, if not more, companies out there who do know how to treat their people. 

It's people like you who have to work for the crappy companies because you have a crappy attitude and can fit right in.

You see the same people sm
day in, day out, like post above with 100 blanks in a 4-minute report.  Same errors, you send feedback, they ignore or argue, same error tomorrow.  The work never ends, it will almost make you sick to your stomach when you see the supposed quality MTs today put out (I am talking new and 20+ years). 
What's up with people on here?

The lady said she wasnt getting any work.  Why would she lie?  She isn't, becaue neither am I.  That's nice you have work, but there are different platforms and accounts happenning.  So, hey, just pretend like we're all lyng and invite the world, then you might be one of the people later on with no work while others do.  People speaking cant speak for an entire company and call everyone liars who arent having the same experiene.

They need to get assistance with staffing.  Problem with these companies is they plan for very little.  Shooting-from-the-hip managing. It's difficult to manage people successfully when you treat them like robots who should be on call 24/7.

All I know is that there are a lot of people...

with the same last name in the executive positions.  One exec acutally seemed to have a healthcare background, one ran tech support, and the other seemed to be chief BSer; however, since they never deigned to e-mail the MT underlings, I really couldn't tell you if they were accountants or not.  We were not important enough to acknowledge.
